We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

We love Jetblue. Your first bag flies free, and they offer a TV at each seat as well as complimentary snacks.

We always go out of JFK, but take a look at LaGuardia airport as well-- it may just work out cheaper for you. Both are NYC airports.

Does anyone know if valet parking is offered 24 hours? We will be arriving around midnight and would love to just valet that night and head to bed ASAP to hit Star Wars Weekend early the next morning. Will a valet person be available after midnight when we pull up? I know we'll be exhausted after working all day then 7 hour drive!

We will all be flying into JFK for the NY part of our trip.



Thanks for the advice, would Newburgh airport still be the best one if flying out of New York City? I thought we would probably be using JFK again or Newark.



Sorry, see above I didnt realise there was a Geneva in NY state, i should have been clearer
I'm another New Yorker. We usually fly out of White Plains also but it's a 15 minute drive for us. Newburgh is quite a bit further than even White Plains so I wouldn't recommend it.
If you're starting in NYC, you might as well fly out of JFK (on JetBlue, of course!) because there are SO many more flights. For us JFK is a bit of a hike while White Plains and LaGuardia are much closer but with fewer flight choices. My husband and I are flying JetBlue out of JFK next week but going to San Diego for a work conference and sadly no extra time to visit Disneyland.

Hello from Disney World!! Been having a great time even though I'm not at BC/YC! Today I went to Epcot and took about 1000 pics of the things (flowers) from the flower and garden festival! I also learned a lot about the new wrist bands that will be happening by the end of the year. I took my annual pass and converted it to the new one that you tap and go! I was told that annual pass holders will be getting the bands by the end of the year. The band will have your name and you pick the color. I took a pic of them which I will send to Dee when I return home anyway they look very cool! This was a very short stay so I'll be leaving Sunday, but I'll be back in July at BC and I can't wait! I'll post more when I return home until then bedtime for me!! Tomorrow is Magic Kingdom day!

Are you flying in from Ireland on Aer Lingus? My grandparents used to fly Aer Lingus and it brings happy memories of presents from Ireland.
Yes we will be flying with Aer Lingus they are great. Are your grandparents from Ireland?

Thank you so much to everyone on this thread for the advice regarding flights. Looks like we will probably be using JetBlue and for convenience we will probably use one of the main NYC airports. You guys are amazing!

Sorry for the confusion about Geneva lol! I guess I should brush up on my geography!

Would love to know the answer to this as well for August and September. It would be great if it is open until 8 or 9 at night. Does anybody know?

Hope this is not duplicating others (missed some of responses) - If looking to use JetBlue, then I believe JFK has some flights (but not sure if Orlando), and if looking elsewhere, and you have to look into "outer ring" airports, the airport in Westchester County (aka White Plains due to it being in "city" of White Plains) is less than half the distance from NYC proper than Newburgh (probably more like one third the distance). And White Plains is also a hub of the "Harlem" line of Metro-North commuter train, which means if you were trying to be frugal (or just want to experience something different), you could taxi to midtown Manhattan NYC (or you may already be there during your layover), then take train from Grand Central to White Plains (31 mins exactly, I pass it everyday), then 10-15 min taxi (prob 10-15 dollars) to their airport. And Westchester/White Plains is dominated by Jetblue, focusing on Florida vacationers - more than half the flights are going to Fort Lauderdale or Orlando. And of course, Newark is a huge airport with lots of choices of airlines, etc., but not a big JETBLUE hub (if that is focus) and only about 10-15 mins (literally) closer than Westchester, just in a different direction. Newark also has a train station, that you get to from Penn Station (about 1.2 miles southeast of Grand Central), and unlike white plains, the newark train also has a stop right at airport, which avoids the taxi at the end.

I can't wait for your next report.

Nanette - sounds like you are having a magical time!

Can't wait to hear more about the AP bands - this whole RFID thing has me so confused - especially the fastpass plus system. I'm secretly hoping it would be done by July!!!

On your next trip we will (hopefully) get to meet up! Is it July yet?

Our friends had it this week...I had no idea that existed. They were not complaining because they had been upgraded to CL from a GV room, but, just an FYI. (Not sure if there are others like it).
Wow no balcony? That's noteworthy!

Then last year we sat on the boardwalk at night & were able to see the higher fireworks from Epcot, watch the Boardwalk crowd & the boats on the lake which was fun. I'd say the food's of the Applebee's variety, but the beers awesome & we liked the appetizers more than our dinner! I told people next time we'd just do beer & appetizers, which is what u want, lol!
