    So I know the days of $159 round trip for airfare Cleveland -Orlando are a thing of the past, but the past couple of years I've been gettin about $210 to $240 round trip (trips in May and September).

    Is $275 something I should grab and be grateful for (this trip is 2nd week of February - about the 9th-16th give or take a day or two - I'm flexible).

    Not really asking for anyone to tell me what do, Kind of just hoping to get a feel for if that is about "par" for that time of year. It is only about $30-40 more than what I've paid on other recent trips, but I just keep hoping for that $212 again! (not gonna happen, huh?)

    Sure wish the Southwest Cle to MCO non-stop would come back!! It's been gone a few years, and I sure do miss those fares and free bag.

    thanks

    You may want to check Allegiant from Youngstown or Toldeo maybe. Also southwest from Pittsburgh or Columbus.

    $275 round trip is good! I have found that Airtran out of Akron sometimes has great prices and non-stops. I too miss daily nonstops on SW out of Cleveland.

    Hi Mary,

    Some thing else to think about is that flying on Tue. Wed and some times Thurs are cheaper. Also another tid bit of info is that I have been able to snag good flight prices into Tampa. Last month I paid $109 each way into TPA.

    TPA to Disney is a one hour and 20 minute ride.
    MCO to Disney is a 35 minute ride. So TPA is only any extra 40 minute ride to Disney but can save you some $$$$. The drive from TPA is EASY!!!!! Just take l-4 and you are there.

    thanks for your comments, everyone!

    I guess I'll be ok paying the $275. I'm only about 5-10 minute drive from Cleveland Hopkins, so it's tough to fly out of anywhere else, also I don't rent a car and this next trip will (probably/hopefully) be my first solo trip! Since I'm only paying for me, maybe I'll just book at 275 and leave it at that!

    thanks again!

    I would much rather be packing bags for Disney than cleaning house for Thanksgiving on this chilly chilly day!

    United Airlines. But it was the afternoon flight (arriving about 6pm) Tues to Tues. February 5-12. the morning flight for the same day was about $340! I just kept checking once or twice a day for the past few weeks, and also changed my trip from Friday for a week to Tuesday for a week.

    You might want to wait until the holidays are over to get a better deal.

    Good luck! And welcome to the Disboards too! Love it here, except it's a litle addicting, but you will be so "in the know" LOL!!
