I doubt you will see it much cheaper but, don't really think they will go up much. If it were me I would probably hold out till you get a little closer. The last 3 Disney trips we booked we paid about 230-250 PP.

Also, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best days to book fares... Keep that in mind as well.

IF u r looking at alternative airports, check ISP! Don't know where u r or if it could work for you but worth a look........

There are 5 of us and trying to get the tixx when they are at the absolute lowest. Right now Delta is $233 (have to pay for bags) and JetBlue is $255 (get first bags free)

If I hold out, do you think it will get lower!?! Was hoping to payer closer to the $200 range - but I'm afraid it is only going to go up!

I was told after the holidays (jan) they tend to have sales - but I'm nervous waiting that long!

What do May fares out of ny tend to be! Looking for JFK or LGA only!

Thank you!
last year I got a one-way airfare for our August cruise out of LGA to MCO for $100- purchased the tickets in May...$233 RT is not a bad fair at all...

I will tell you this- Delta out of LGA is AWFUL...scan the web as their are a number of sites that will tell you the on time performance of the flights you are considering and give you a 14 day summary...

our 5:30 flight was delayed because of mechanical issues (it eventually left at 10PM)...they switched us to a 7:30 flight and that was delayed until 9:20 because of mechanical issues...

for the extra $$$ JetBlue may cause you a lot less aggravation....

I just didn't want to chance waiting. Southwest had good direct flight times for us and most other airlines were significantly more for flights with stop overs etc. $1200 for 6 people is very good!

I am constantly looking at NYC-MCO airfares and my general experience has been w/r/t Delta direct

IMHO, $213.80-$233.80 is pretty standard lowest price range when you're booking more than 6 months out. An unpopular flight will sometimes prices out lower, but not for very long. I have yet to see consistent offers for tix under $200.
Right after 6 month window, the lowest prices tend to jump to $283.80-$298.80, but is often more like $351.80 as a typical price.

I haven't done as much booking 3 months out, so I have no observations for that window.

But I think that the prices you're looking at are on the lower end of the range, but typical for 6+ months out.

I've generally not looked into JetBlue b/c I hate going out to JFK, but they price themselves close to Delta for the most part.

If you get the Delta Amex, 1st bag checked free for you and your family, up to 4 bags in total, traveling on same itinerary. Annual fee is waived first year, but if you fly Delta just once a year, you may be able to justify $95 Annual Fee with the free bag privilege alone.

HTH!

Have you checked SWA out of ISP? You get 2 bags free. I don't know which days you are flying. But checking their low fare calendar they have flights for $109 or $119 most days in May.

Doing a 7 night cruise out of Orlando in May 2014. Just wanted to fly in on Friday night and return to EWR right after the cruise on Saturday.
I booked oneway outbound on JetBlue for $115.40 each or $230.80 as soon as JB released their flights (had a $20 credit to use up).
I've been watching the return fares go up and up, of course the cheaper flights are before 8AM or after 7PM. I just caved in and booked United for $155.90 each or $311.80 on the 3:30PM flight (also had a $20 travel balance to use up), so my RT total for preferred flight times was $271.80 which is a little higher than I usually pay from EWR to MCO but wanted the prefered times. Its such a game, and I am tired of playing the game.

JetBlue will also credit a JetBlue cash bank for you if the fare drops. You can use that credit for future flights.

Bolding is mine, no they don't anymore.... Both charge for parking, though less then the big airports......

It's like my DSis - "I got tickets for $79 round trip before..." (EWR-MCO Jet Blue) I keep telling her that those days are long over...

Her last trip she caved and drove...

We fly out of EWR to MCO. I will tell you in our experience the loser price has been about 3 wks after they are released. Then they fluctuate up from there and occasionally get close to the price we paid but have yet to go below. They might if you wanted to wait until a couple weeks before but we do Not want that.

We got rt ewr to Mco in May for $224 pp by changing our dates to fly on Tuesday and Wednesdays. Just an idea for you. We only fly united though.
