    Hi! Fantastic, and just the dates we were looking at! Only thing is I've just had a look, and it's coming up at £2748 :confused3(that's for 3 adults and 2 children). Do you have a link please?
    Thanks,
    Jules x

    Are you sure you put in London to Tampa? I just checked and for 3 ad & 2 ch it coming up at £ 2,201.50, MCO is around price you have quoted. Great price for Tampa.

    Sorry just seen car incl, I only quoted for flights, £440 average is good for direct in August.

    I am already searching twice a day and most airlines have not released our dates yet. A bargain will show eventually, patience:goodvibes

    Well when it does show Wayne you have got my phone number day or night get in touch!!!:thumbsup2 What dates you looking for for next year Wayne? We wouldnt mind Tampa again we quite enjoyed the drive and would probably incorporate a few days at clearwater this time - just off to have a look at the british airways site see what we can find.

    We've agreed that we don't mind Tampa this time - I've done the drive to Busch Gardens and back, so shouldn't be much more difficult!

    That number you have of mine, I terminated the contract, don't have a new one yet, will send you a text when I get a new one.

    I was really impressed with Tampa, OK we were Biz class so that helped slightly but would do this airport anytime whichever class of travel. No lines at Car rentals, Only takes about another 30 mins longer than MCO to get to Disney. Coming back quiet car rental return, No lines at security(MCO been a nightmare last few trips) very quiet departure lounge.

    I think our dates will be between 4th~29th Aug, hopefuly all the 25 nights, can go earlier as Matt will have done his GCSE's so we considered going out of school hols but then we miss free DDP, hit US school hols, and can't meet up with burt (Mart) & DISwolves (Nigel) if they go again.

    Yes if the price is right, the OKW/SSR deal with 42% off & free DDP was OK, not seen any other deal to attract me so if it doesn't come back then its offsite next August.

    We will be hoping for around the same dates - prefer direct flights - not bothered about departure airport but prefer to arrive at MCO or would give Tampa a try.......keep us posted :thumbsup2

    That seems like a great price, I was looking at BA for 13th-31st Aug 2010 for 2 Adults and 1 Child and it's still coming up at nearly GBP2000 and thats just the flights into MCO.
