    It makes you "new". It's another way to search. When I'm searching, I'll use both fire fox and explorer, use one, minimize the other. I have been surprised a few times (infrequent, but often enough to make it worth trying it) to see different prices (or different flight times/routes) in different browsers.

    And another option:
    What follows below is a pretty good tip for for two adults...honestly, though, if I was booking more people, I'd just pay the difference. A little complication is fine, too much can be a mess.

    When I travel it's just dh and me. I will occasionally find a great price for one ticket, but the second jumps the price. So, I'll open a second browser, and book them separately. I'll choose seats together, but they will be on separate reservation numbers. Note: this is a little tricky, so I have to really pay attention to detail, concentrate, make sure dates, flight #'s are the same. :) When I'm all done, I will call the airline and have them linked together. That way the airline "knows" we are travel companions. I have to keep an eye on them, especially if there's a change in flights. I check to see we are both on the new flight. (And if not, I call and nicely work to get us together.)
    I also use this method if I'm booking one of us on points, the other on cash. :thumbsup2

    do you remember a while ago they had a whole story on the news about how sites were offering mac users different/more expensive offers that windows users? Not that you couldn't get the other offers but they weren't as prominently displayed as the more expensive ones...:stir:

    Is the Zahanati Spa and Fitness Center free to use (except for massages) even if you are staying on rented DVC points? I am assuming it is, but thought I would check first. Looks like it has some nice equipment in it. I figure will all the good food we will be partaking in we will need to burn some of it off :)

    Kim just book the higher airfare at EWR, which will make DH happy, Rent the points from Allison, buy your park hoppers w/ your disney dollars & also use them(D Dollars) for your food...

    There shouldn't be this big of a problem for someone who loves Disney as much as you ( that hasn't been there in years )....

    ONCE AGAIN DO IT!!!!

    I hemmed & hawwed w/ my prices back in Sept. & literally each flight went up 49.00 more so bascially 200.00 more for me to spend, alll because I was too lazy to call on a Saturday, & Sunday they went up....Moral is Yes I was P'oed butheck I'm going to Disney thats all that matters.:thumbsup2 Get yourself in that frame of mind.

    There is no charge to use the fitness center equipment at Jambo while staying there.

    It's free & very nice!!!
    DS loved it in there. We always went late at night & were there alone. I reclined on the equipment while he lifted. ;)

    I waited on the airfare wagon too since DH wasn't sure he was going with us...paid $147 RT each for tix for the boys & myself....1 month later paid $388 for same flight for DH. I HATE the airfare game! It made me sick to hit "purchase ticket" at $388!

    For those of you commenting on the fitness center - didn't the spa part recently change hands & have a price increase? Are the new prices posted anywhere?

    ....I know exactly how you feel....it just irks me that I could have gotten 2 R/T non-stop tix (inuding tax) for $381.60 and now the prices are off the charts....

    ....I'll have to research that...

    you mean to tell me this is nicer than pop ?!? :rotfl:

    The kids keep saying we dont want to go to akl, we want to stay at pop since its sooo fancy.. although I think its starting to sink in.. as we get closer they are getting more excited when looking at akl videos and pics

    My daughter just informed me that one of her buddies will be at WDW next month and is staying at "the hotel where the monorail goes through it" and pouted a little. I'm so glad I got to tell her that OUR hotel will have a balcony where you can watch giraffes and other animals outside your room. She turned her frown upside down :)

    I am SO looking forward to trying out AKL!
