    Here in mt. Lebo also. We are taking the auto train down. Never knew about the train but seems like it will be fun and you get your car and don't have to worry about those heavy car seats in the airport.
    We have washington county people coming too.
    Apparently lots of south hills people going. Any good places around here to buy disney stuff for the trip or just stuff needed.?

    Dollar tree if you are going with kids. I got panchos, glow sticks, goggles, Disney activity books, night lights, magic wash cloths, the list goes on. I am really intrigued by the train.

    Lehigh Valley, checking in! :thumbsup2

    We've driven twice & are taking the auto train in October. We leave in the evening, 6 - 7 p.m. & drive straight through, taking turns. the way home is more difficult & its better to stop somewhere to sleep then bcause you are tired from all the parks!

    We head out 81 & skip around the DC mess. the drive is about 17 hrs

    word of experience - Virginia rest stops have AWFUL coffee.

    I live in the Cleveland area, but grew up in Meadville and lived in Cranberry Twp. before we moved. Still consider myself a Pennsylvanian.

    Fellow Lehigh Valley people, I miss directs to Orlando out of ABE! Any word of any new airlines coming in? It's so nice to have an airport so close, I just wish it went more places! We use Philly now.

    No word that I know of! Ohhh how I wish southwest would come in there. I don't even mind flying allegiance but their return times are like 7am. Too early for me!! We use Philly now too. Usually southwest because I don't have to pay for bags.

    Hello, we are in Harrisburg and the rest of our Disney Lovers are in York and Royersford. We are going the first week of December. Flying out of 3 different airports this trip. First time we all went, we all flew together, but leaving home and coming home on different schedules.

    Sharon... Hermitage... I'm seeing some familiar places which may actually have heard of my town.
    :hyper: Another Meadvillain! That's where I grew up!! And still am. It's Fair Week so we're gearing up to get our country on and going to Waldameer later this week. I just keep thinking of these as pre-shows and warm-ups to our Sisters Trip to Disney next month. Oh, and to any who vacationed around here at nearby Conneaut Lake Park, someone burned down the Beach House a couple weeks ago. Very sad.

    What week in September? Too bad one of those meets wasn't last month. My Dad had appointments all day in Pittsburgh and I could have used something to do.

    When we were little (this is 15-20 years ago), we'd always take two days down and back and stay the night at a Days Inn in Statesville, NC. Travel games, books and frequent stops to let us kids out to release energy got us through then we would spend the first evening with relatives. An overnight trip then waking up in Disney would have been amazing, not that I'd trade our experiences for anything. Maybe to get the original Imagination ride back. Maybe.

    I miss the fair. My boys always seem to start school the week of the fair so we are never able to get over for it. I heard about the Beach House. It is sad to see how the park has declined.
