    No bargains yet Tracy.
    I have even considered going a crazy way, Drive to Heathrow, fly direct Virgin to Miami then drive upto WDW. Same route back. Economy outbound, Upper class return £960 + 8,500 miles. When you compare to Manchester return at £823 in economy its a great price but such a long way around, decided to be patient and wait.

    we would have to drive, either to MAN or london area, we have checked flights into miami too (would overnight in miami then travel up the next day...) but as we have no m+m we are stuck with rack rate prices, just thought id ask i know loads of people have booked with the 42% free ddp, so loads of us are probably hunting flights.
    on the Dibb general thought is costs will drop xmas time...

    We're also waiting patiently - have had it confirmed that now isn't a good time to be selling flats so we definitely get to go on our anniversary trip :cloud9:

    Have got the money to pay for flights outright (been doing overtime!) but don't want to pay crazy prices.

    Looking to fly out on the 14th or a couple of days earlier.

    We are looking around the 12th July for 3 weeks. Want a direct flight from Man to Mco with Virgin. We want to book before 25th Nov. so we can get the extra weight allowance. I keep looking daily.

    Yes, we are looking too, intend to go about the 14th August, returning around the 3rd of September, the prices at the moment are just too high, like Wayne says patience is required, although it is difficult :rotfl2:

    We've decided to invest in some sturdy but lightweight holdalls for future trips - ones that are about as big as they can be! Our very lovely suitcase set will only beused for holidays in this country from now on :sad2:
