    Okay ... thought I'd start a thread to track air fares from the East Coast to Orlando. So if you see something out there, please post it. The more details the better.

    Examples

    Portland Maine PWM to MCO Feb 6 to Feb 16th.
    2 Adults 2 kids
    No bag fees
    Stop over in JFK
    Total cost of flight $961.60 USD
    So $240 US each person taxes in.

    fare from jetblue.com

    Special cost notes I will add: Need a stay park and fly, since flight leaves 6am., estimated cost of $200 USD for this.

    I got Halifax to Orlando Feb 3 departure and Feb 11 DIRECT return for $1960 all in for 4 adults.

    Feb 3 depart 6:25am through Montreal, arrive Orlando 12:05pm
    Feb 11 depart 6:35pm direct to Halifax, arrive around 11pm

    Thought this was a not bad deal especially with arrival and departure times we will have almost 9 full park days!

    Add the buy 4/get 3 at AKL and we're doing this trip for only about $500 more than a 7 night Pop Century for 3 people in 2006.

    Can't wait till we go, only 75 MORE DAYS!!!!

    For an advance ticket purchase out of YHZ that is a good find. Plus the opportunity cost of driving to the US in February is more (i.e get caught in a snow storm and you would wish that you had selected YHZ)

    Good find! mcgraws ... who are you flying through? AC?

    We bought from Air Canada yhz to mco direct at the end of April. it was $229, (303 with Tax) down and $224, (256 with tax). A total of $1670 for 3. Not great but not bad. I am happy to pay a little extra for the direct flight.

    We leave on a Thursday at 2:55pm arrive 5:41 coming back we leave Orlando at 6:40pm and arrive at 11:10pm. So we have a nearly whole day the last day.

    I think that is a fine fare .. especially when you are buying for 3 .... I have always bought for 5 people, so any savings is multiplied by 5 ... when it is just me and my wife ... I think I'll be paying the extra to leave from Halifax

    A fare of around 500 from Halifax is fine in my books ... especially when bought that far in advance. $550 is fine!

    If I saw one below 300 I could be returning to Disney very quickly ...especially with the 4 for 3 moderate deal at Disney

    I got AC for $533 taxes in to Tampa from Halifax this past May. Tampa was slightly cheaper then Orlando so if you're renting a car it might be an option. I really tracked the prices before I bought and that was a seat sale.....just after we bought it went up $200 each!

    Sorry Ted forgot to put that in the post, we're flying Air Canada both ways, could have done direct on Thursday Feb 4th for same rate but it was an afternoon flight only arriving Orlando after supper so we chose the Feb 3rd departure that arrives at noon. Here's hoping there's no bad weather in Montreal to hold us up.

    Just thinking about my October 04 flights from Halifax.. return was like $320 all in with Air Canada. Those were the days ...

    I know we'll be hitting Maine one of these days for the savings (now a family of 4 who all need tickets!).. I hope Continental gets competetive!

    RainbowsMist ... why add bag fees? Jetblue gives you the first bag per person free ... :)

    You are basically doing the same flight as we did last week ...

    2 Child 778.00 CAD
    Additional Taxes/Fees 414.96 CAD
    Total Price 1,970.96 CAD
