I am planning my trip for next August (gotta keep planning - it's half the fun!). We will be flying Delta out of Boston because we all have FF miles. I HATE that Delta no longer has the 7 AM or the 7PM flight out of Boston. The earliest out is 11:30 and the latest back is 3:30, so you lose a half day on both ends. We will be checking in to BCV on August 10 and checking out on the 20th. Sooooooo... I was thinking about flying in to MCO the night before we check into BCV (8/9) and then staying either in the airport or somewhere close by the last night (8/20) and flying out the next morning. This way we will have full days on the 8th and 20th. Has anyone done this? We probably won't rent a car, since there will be 6 - 8 of us and we would need a van. My question is, what is the cheapest way to do this? I am thinking we should get Tiffany to drive us to the AS the first night, stay there in 2 rooms (hopefully with AP discount), and then "bus" it to BCV the next morning. What would you suggest? What about grocery shopping? Maybe rent a compact at the Dolphin on the 10th for one day to do that? And what about that last night? Would renting a van at the Dolphin that last day be an option? Then we could stay somewhere cheap that night of the 20th, and drive to the airport the next day, return the car, and be off... Wait - what about the AS again for the last night? Then just get Tiffany to pick us up there and that would only be one round trip. I'm SOOOOO confused! The problem is that we just came back from 12 nights at BCV (with 2 at CS before that!) so 10 nights is going to seem so short now (spoiled!). And then to arrive at 2:30 the first day and have to leave at 3:30 the last day STINKS! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
