We took a red eye last time we visited Disney and I took one last September to DC as well. I typically dislike them. But if it means I can arrive at 11am instead of 5pm, I'm all for it! They're tough on kids though. I sat next to a poor woman with a crying 2 year old for half of the flight to DC. I don't think I got sleep for 48 hours on that trip. Although the nice thing about red eye flights when you're on the west coast is that you'll usually get tired when it's time to go to bed local time, despite the fact that it's dinner time at home. Are you guys from Portland?
