Good airfare price out of Toronto

My sister will be joining me in Disney World this summer. She is flying out of Toronto. She is wondering what a reasonable flight to Orlando should cost. Her travel dates are Aug. 24 -31. She has signed up for travel deals from West Jet, but is still unsure what a good price is. I fly out of Buffalo so I'm not familiar with Toronto airfares.

What do you think? Under $400? Or $500? With bags and all fees included? Is this reasonable? How much do you pay when flying Toronto to Orlando?

Thanks!

under 400 would be very good, prices are very high this year for flying out of Toronto.

Can she fly out of Buffalo instead? It's usually much cheaper, around $300ish

I wish she could/would fly out of Buffalo.
We are paying $199 each rt out of Buffalo in August.
But she needs a scooter and relies on Wheel-Trans to get her around.

We ALWAYS fly direct from Toronto. You couldn't pay me to drive all the way to Buffalo to save a hundred dollars. Our last three trips we have paid $1200 for three of us. We aim to be under $400 each and manage within $50 total. We just paid $1227 for the three of us in April via Air Canada. And three days later we could have saved $130 on the total because AC put them on sale.

You are way over paying at $1200.

We usually pay between $448 (cheapest paid April 2010) and $645 (Most expensive paid -Jan 2013) including tax, round trip, direct flight for the 3 of us to Fly from BUF-MCO. I just double checked our prices for our past 7 flights.. BUF-MCO..
We fly either Southwest or Air tran. And we travel frequently once or twice a year. Each trip I monitor prices from Hamilton, Toronto and Buffalo.

We have always found that it is half the price or more flying out of Buffalo.

I just checked Southwest...Mid April $662.10 for 3 people inclusive...round trip BUF-MCO! $565 cheaper then what you paid out of YYZ! More then $100 cheaper I'd say!

I'd reconsider checking prices out of BUF on future trips.
Buffallo airport is much smaller , and you can park right infront of the airport for a fraction of the price at YYZ

You would save way more than $100 to fly out of Buffalo over Toronto. Even if you factor in gas and a hotel.

Try Air Transat, not as fancy as WJ or AC, but most likely under $500. We have used them before to go to Disney.

I feel the opposite. We are paying $798 for the four of us to fly out of Buffalo roundtrip with direct flights. It would cost us at least $1600 to fly out of Toronto. Plus we don't have to be at the airport 3 hours early!

You could possibly get 320pp on delta with a connection (aim for Atlanta, avoid the 3 NY airports).

Direct on air Canada is about 425pp. Air transat and westjet are not usually any cheaper. If something comes up under 400, grab it right away. It doesn't get any cheaper. Sign up for air Canada emails and watch for a 20% off code (I think there's one now?)

I would not drive to buffalo for $100, but I'd walk to buffalo for $600.

We LOVE POR! We are staying there again in April and, honestly, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The whole resort was renovated last year. It has a wonderful old south, laid back vibe. And, we love to spend our free time at DTD so the boat is a huge bonus. Plus being able to walk to POFQ for the beignets is amazing!

Regarding the airfare, we always budget $1200 for our flights and as long as I can get airfare direct from Toronto for that, I will continue to pay that. And if you fly Air Canada, you only have to be there an hour before the flight leaves. Again...you couldn't pay me enough to drive to Buffalo. Not when I live 30 mins east of Toronto.

Nothing wrong with paying for convenience. You just implied that people drive to buffalo to save $100 when in reality you can routinely fly out of buffalo at half the price of YYZ.

I would also caution advising people to arrive at YYZ an hour before there international flight. As per Air Canada you should be arriving no later then 90 min. At 60 min you risk leaving your bags behind.

Anyways, topic is flights out of YYZ and I would consider $400 for YYZ to MCO as being decent. I have taken advantage of seat sales and done it for $300 but that was years ago.
