    I would maybe plan on getting to the airport for 5:30. After flying out of Newark and JFK numerous times, I realized the surrounding airports are just way to unpredictable.

    I feel your pain though! My DH booked our flight for 6 am out of Newark. Which means leaving our apartment in Central Jersey around 3:30-3:45. Normally, I would be freaking out about getting up this early in the morning, but since it's for DW I'm content with it lol.

    Congrats on all the exciting news!

    We have the 6am flight out of Newark too but I'm only about 15 mins away so it's not so bad. I used to get there super early because I'm always paranoid but the airport is always EMPTY that early on a weekday so I think this time I'm going to leave at 4:45am. That'll give me an hour.

    You won't need tags for going home. Actually you don't even need tags for going to WDW if you are in the system. Our tags didn't arrive for our trip last September, we just checked in at the ME desk and got our luggage no problem.

    When you get to your hotel, just let them know that you need ME for going back to the airport. They will make sure all the information is there.

    Lol that's how I am too. Especially with Newark lol. We're only about 20 minutes so it's not too bad. When are you leaving?

    I love the idea of a FB group.

    Stan, I have a feeling I meet you and your daughter last year in MK by the dole whips for a July dismeet. I;m just putting the pieces together now.

    Welcome to the group.

    I like to get to our airport at least 90 minutes before our flight. Our airport is usually not too busy. How long is it going to take you to geet from Tribeca to the airport?

    I REALLY want a iPhone, but cannot justify the cost of the data plan. Right now my family all have "dumb" cell phones.

    woohooo - this thread is moving just as fast as the old one!

    I fly frequently and my DH likes to be early - he hates to be rushed at the airport. I still laugh when I think of the day my MOm (and I) kept insisting it would be fine and we missed our honeymoon flight! (It wasn't a big deal - they took care of us and we got the next flight out).

    I get to the airport 2 hours early. I also pad an extra 15-30 mins for driving time. Any more is very unneccessary.

    Last flight to Florida we did Park and fly and since we were only 5 mins away, decided to get to the airport 1 hr before. It felt rushed and I didn't like arriving at our boarding gate to see a lineup of people boarding already.

    We are going to look into DVC when we are down there! I think it would be worth it for our family!

    I know- the video gets me choked up. My DH was laughing at me last night when I watched it! I will have to download that song for a ringtone. The crowds definitely make the Aug heat tolerable-no lines means getting into the AC faster! You def have to head to the pool for a bit. (Not to mention it was cooler down there than NJ earlier this week.)

    That is awesome!! Must have been so exciting! If you play in Philly, you will have to let us know, we are not that far away!

    YAY!!

    Happy birthday!! :cool1:

    I've actually never flown out of LGA! Plenty out of Newark and JFK, but most of that has been international first class, which means I'm getting there in the evening and can always use priority lane. No such luck on this trip. ;)

    Funny - sweetie and I are going to the Dominican Republic in 2 weeks and our flight home leaves at some crazy time like 12:30am...if it were anything else, it would be drudgery. Because it's vacation and we're together, it's an adventure. :) :) :)

    When I have those super early mornings, I usually end up never even going to sleep because of the combination of last-minute preparation and fear that I won't wake up and I'll miss my flight!

    Man I leave for Texas and this thread just blows up. Lol. Hubby announced to me last night that I need to make ressies for DTD on August 8th. Apparently his company is giving all the convention goers a Free night. Okay. I'm thinking raglan road but this really messed with my plans to hang out in the park until wishes. :(. Oh the troubles I have. Hahahahahahaha.

    If anyone is doing the fb thing let me know. I want to join in ;)
