I really like Southwest and was going to have a tantrum if they didn't serve MCO anymore

I guess we wait. I am really hoping rates are better than Jetblue or it's Airtran for us.
Lol, talk about tantrums! I have no good alternative! SW is the only one that flies direct from Albany! Everyone else costs more, makes one or two stops and takes ALL day, I'd have to drive 2 hours to another airport or just drive my butt down to Disney!

I was able to book even though I got that error message. Choose dates before august 9 on the main page. Then use the fare finder calendar to select the dates you really want. They came up and let me book even though the main page is still giving me the same error.

MSP to MCO was $219 each way :-(

I put in the August 9 date that they say is the last one and then was able to get to the "try our low fare calendar" Then I was able to get all the dates for August and September (til the 27th)

Hmmm... not liking the fares so far. Flying into Tampa might become a viable option. We are staying offsite and were already renting a car

Whew! Bought my airfare. Rates were decent enough ($124---I miss the $59 days!!) and I got direct flights. The number of direct flights has decreased, making our park time on arrival day shorter than usual but that's OK. Just glad to have the airfare bought and will think of park touring later.

Lots of pixie dust to those booking!

Phew. Booked it!! Well, I only booked my return flight. That's the one I was worried about because there is only one non-stop and it's on Labor Day weekend. I booked for 155 per person and that includes Early Bird Check In. That fare is only going to go up from this point being the only non-stop for the day.

Now to decide if I should just go ahead and book our flight down. I probably should.
I was trying to book it all while getting the kids ready for the school bus, so it was a little hairy.

I got the same error message about 7:45 from Columbus, OH to MCO and had an aneurism but they fixed it thank goodness. I do miss the $59 flight days but we still got a decent enough deal considering we wanted non-stop and we don't have any baggage fees this way. Just so relieved the route still exists.

I also had a minor heart attack when I got the error message this morning. After a few min, I found the work around, thank goodness! I was only able to book our flight down. We're using points from the SW credit card promo to pay for flights. For some reason I had $1000 in my mind to get the 50,000 points, so I have some more spending to do to get our return flight. My husband's 50,000 covered all 5 of us going down.

I bit the bullet and bought our flight down on Airtran. The time was perfect for us and it was 100pp. Add in seat assignments and bag fees for another 145 and it worked out to 134 per person. So all in we are flying for 1155 return with all fees on non-stops. I've done much better, but I've also done worse and if this saves me the worry of watching flights for the next 6 months I am a-ok with all of it.
Trip in 18 days and no Disney blues when we leave because there's another one in 6 months

My air is a bit high so I'm going to hold off a bit. I would love to get my fare down to around 1100.00 for 4 of us. The way home is cheap enough at 137.00 but the flight down is .
