Looking at the First week of December, possibly 1-6th. Dec. 2nd is our Anniversary so we would like to be there for it. IF free dining is offered we would change our dates

JetBlue now has fares thru Jan 6 so I guess it is time to book the airfare! Looks like I may add a day to save $$ on flights....I call it my Disney math because what we save on air we will spend on hotel but it is another day at Disney!!!!!

If you're spending the same amount of $$ and getting an extra day how could you NOT switch. Disney math is my favorite kind of math.

I have eight days booked and plan to drop a couple days after I find out what the air fares are like for the first week of December. I am taking advantage of Bounce back rates for Nov 30th to Dec 4th but have booked through the 7th just in case airfare for the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend is too expensive.

I book our airline a couple months in advance and always get insurance because the weather can be brutal in December in Illinois. Just go for it!
Thanks, but I am not holding off for that reason - most businesses only offer discounts to fill rooms - if rooms are full, less or no discounts can be the result - it would be nice if more people held off booking a bit so that Disney feels the need to provide higher discounts

I'll probably book in the summer at some time - I usually receive a pin code by that time that runs through the end of the year - so hoping for the same situation this year.

I looked at flights on Jet Blue, they were reasonably priced but we would have to fly from San Jose CA to NYC to MCO, which makes no sense at all! However, it did use the same Disney math, it would be so much less expensive to add a day...

We are booked 11/29-12/7 at POFQ. The CM I spoke to today said to watch for discounts, maybe FD, the middle to end of summer. She said deals might be 12/1 after Thanksgiving weekend. She said I could do Friday and Sat at full price and then do discount for the rest of the week so to keep watching!

Hi there! Does anyone know what type of % off purchase price Disney gives for AKL when the discount is offered? Is it 30% off? Lower? Higher? Thank you

The current summer offer is 30% off AKL standard view.

Also, anyone on here flying out of Cleveland, Youngstown, Akron or Pittsburgh? We would like a nonstop flight but it seems that Cleveland and Youngstown are the only ones that have nonstop. Cleveland is about $420/person roundtrip and Youngstown is cheaper but they are only showing flights through October and they only fly to Orlando a couple days a week. Anyone have any advice on when I should purchase flights for the best possible deal?

Thanks in advance!

We are in Pgh and Southwest and Airtran have nonstop.

Wow--availability for the first week in December looks pretty thin already. That does not make me optimistic about good discounts or crowd levels!
