    Halifax to Orlando, direct with Sunwing.

    March 20-27 (Wed-Wed)

    Leave Halifax at 6 am, you're in Orlando before 9am.

    Coming home, you leave Orlando at 9:50 and you're in Halifax at 2:20.

    $426.27

    Wish I could get this one. It's a great deal for a direct flight out of Halifax, and you're in Orlando quite early!

    we just booked out of Bangor to orlando for 341.20 return ... nov 28th to dec 5th .... a few days before that it was 315.20 ... didn't want to risk it going up again ...

    that boston deal sounds fantastic... although we went out of boston last year and the drive really wasn't worth it to us ....:)

    44 more days !!

    Well, it looks like we'll be driving to Portland. I'm really nervous because it will be in March. :scared1: So who knows what the weather will bring? But when you think all six of us can get flights for the same price as 2.5 of us here, it's not much of a problem to see why we have to do this. My sister has to pay for 5 of us. So unless we win the lottery within the next few days, we're driving to Portland in March and we're doing a very short trip from March 17-22. This means a 9 hour drive and a hotel each way. With a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Oh boy! :lmao:

    I've driven to Portland in March (and Feb) may times, I worried more than I should have. Never had an issue.

    Thanks Ted! Once we buy the tickets (Very soon, as in tomorrow hopefully), I'll be able to let it go. It helps when you say that, as I take your word in transportation around the East Coast.... ;)

    Don't worry. :goodvibes
    We always drive to Boston in late feb early March. Just allow time to take it slow incase of bad weather. Saying that we've never had any, but if you plan for the worst, it can only be better! :goodvibes

    We have driven to Bangor many times in March and we even drove to NYC to catch a cruise in Feb... This will be our first time flying out of Portland .. You just need good Winter tires and take your time.. The money savings are incredible compare to what we would pay flying from the Fredericton or Moncton.

    Thanks... Now let's make sure my sister has some good winter tires on her van as we're only taking one vehicle.

    I'm so excited to be going with them. The five year old keeps asking me if I can go to Disney when they go and I keep telling her that I don't know, it depends on when they go. It's so cute. She'll find out eventually that I'm going with them. I'll just tell her I have to drive her van home to PEI when I go with them. I wonder if we can keep it from her until we actually get on the plane?

    Well, my plans changed quickly. My sister ended up needing work on her van, and can't buy her flight tickets yet. I decided I was getting too cranky and stressed, so I bought some for just me. I payed way more than I like too, but that's okay, they're going to go up more rather than down at this point.

    It's direct from Halifax, return. I leave at 4:45 and get to Orlando before 8pm, then coming home I leave Orlando at 11:15 am and get to Halifax before 4pm. This way I don't need a hotel either way. $772. Pricey, but at least it's direct, and I don't need to pay for hotels, just the gas, the bridge and the parking. If I understand correctly, Westjet still has first bag free, right? And can I take my camera bag AND a carryon? I've never flown Westjet before, but I'm excited to! :hyper:

    Who knows what my sister will end up doing. At this point, I know I'm booked. They can meet me there.

    Too bad you can't travel down with your family, but on the bright side, you sure will be able to surprise the heck out of your niece when you meet up with them there. Depending on their schedule, maybe you could arrange to meet her/them under the castle or something

    That's what I was thinking! I really have an addiction though.... I come back from one trip and want to plan another right away. I might need a new job on the side to pay for all my trips. :rotfl:
