Flight arrives at 9pm and the next one to Orlando departs 6:30am the next day.

Also we are flying Lufthansa operated by United Heathrow to Newark so do we check in with Lufthansa or United? Thanks
Not something I have ever done but I would think if you told them at checkin they will either check your bags thru to Orlando or just to Newark, your choice. Hopefully someone will post that knows for sure.

Help!

I've just gone on to book on united.com either 12th,13th or 14th Aug til the 31st Aug and the prices In £s are showing at £620 Isherwood when they were £200 each cheaper last night, thats just my luck!

I changed the price to $ and it's $727 each in dollars so virtually last nights price but am I allowed to book in $ s if I am using an English £ credit card with a Uk billing address?

Last time I tried I entered all my details it then went to payment page and changed the price back to £UK and the higher price.
Have you looked on Orbitz.com, they quote in $'s and we can book on there no problems.

I've found some on Expedia im happy with on the 12th Aug to 1st Sept changing planes in OHouston but the stop over is only 1h 25 mins each way. If we miss our connection is that our fault or will be just be put on the next flight?

I'm new to indirect! Thanks for the help!

For the inexperienced I always say 2+ hours outbound (1+ hours return)
The flight you have seen I believe is the 18:50 to MCO from Houston. If you didn't make it they would have to get you on the next available flight, only problem is I have checked United's site and it looks like the last flight of the day so you would be there overnight if you missed the connection.

2 downsides, one the last flight of the day and two Houston is about 3 hours inland so you are going a long way into the US to come back out, far better if you can get any of the hubs on the East coast, NYC, Philly, Washington, etc.

This is the flight we've booked on our way out. We just have to hope for no delays on the way out. We're connecting in Washington on the way back and have a 3 our stop over.

You are correct Wayne it is the 18:50 from Houston, I didnt realise that it was the last flight of the day and I was so worried about missinga good price I have gone ahead and booked it!

Now I'm worried!! If the flight is late landing or we get delayed in the airport and we miss our connection do we just have to find ourselves a hotel for the night. Do we have to pay extra to go on the next flight?

I'm a born worrier so this probably wasn't the best option for me in hindsight!

Thanks for all your help!

Do not worry about it, they will take care of you. They only allow bookings that they believe they can fulfil. Even if you have a delay they can catch up the time or if enough of you on the transatlantic route are then transferring to the MCO route they could possibly hold your 2nd leg. Whatever happens there will be no cost to you, its all their responsibilty to get you to MCO ASAP. Chances are it will all go really easy and no problems.

Thanks, that's good to know! I will be in America and if I'm delayed at least I'm still in America and well on mh way to Disney World!

I now have my flights for August 2013, so I guess I should go back to thinking about my trip this Saturday!! : 0 )

Our flight was delayed from MCO to Philly last time and I was really worried. I spoke to a guy from US Airways and he said that there's no way they'd let that flight go without us as 1/2 of the plane were transferring onto it.

The first flight out the next morning is 7:25 am - you'd still be in MCO by 10am and without having to go through immigration you won't waste too much of the day.

That is exactly the way to look at it, even worse case and you are on the above flight at 7:30am you will be on your way to Florida and saved a small fortune over direct flights but I would be confident of making your scheduled flight.

I keep thinking about next Easter & next August but we have nothing planned for our trip in 23 days time. I have just been looking at the dessert party, something I wouldn't consider while on the DDP but this trip is offsite so considering, need to decide quick though as there is only 1 slot available.

I have exactly the same stopover time both ways. I know it's not ideal but it was cheap and I needed cheap with us going on Saturday too!

This trip was only really scheduled as we took advantage of the DVC annual pass discount and are squeezing in a trip within the year.

We will probably drive down to London from Liverpool and book a hotel with parking included to stay the night before. We will enjoy the drive down and make the most of our little road trip adventure but I expectthe journey home will be a lot less fun!!

I keep thinking about next Easter & next August but we have nothing planned for our trip in 23 days time. I have just been looking at the dessert party, something I wouldn't consider while on the DDP but this trip is offsite so considering, need to decide quick though as there is only 1 slot available.

I've never done the dessert party but it does look really nice, I'm afraid I would over indulge far too much and be sick!! I'm not sure I can even trust myself with the Golden Corral desserts! X

This trip was only really scheduled as we took advantage of the DVC annual pass discount and are squeezing in a trip within the year.

We will probably drive down to London from Liverpool and book a hotel with parking included to stay the night before. We will enjoy the drive down and make the most of our little road trip adventure but I expectthe journey home will be a lot less fun!!
Are you landing back in Heathrow on the 1st? If you are we'll be on the same plane - I'll let you know be what row we're in if you are so you can pick one far away (I can't imagine our youngest who will have just turned 3 will be much fun to sit near )
