Shout Out

I guess I'm in the middle of everybody! Just south of Williamsport, PA.

I would so love to do a train trip down to Fla, but I just can't swing the extra travel time needed (can't cut into my WDW time, haven't been since 1986!), and we have a group going, so we are getting discount air that way.

Another Pa'er here-- actually Northeast Pa. We're going for Xmas and NY'S and we're driving because we'll be there for 2 weeks and need to take lots of xmas stuff for the kids (2,4,7) but as a surprise for the kids we will be taking the autotrain back .

Hello from the Lehigh Valley!

We're driving to Orlando in June - with our 3 kids. Should be - um - interesting! We used to drive all the time when *I* was a kid, but I was much older than my little ones.

We looked into the AutoTrain, and when gas prices were through the roof we seriously considered it. Now that gas is lower again, driving is really the cheapest way for us to get there.

Nice to see so many from PA here!

we're from right outside of Pittsburgh. We're going in just under 4 weeks and we are definetly flying. We didn't get great airfare by any means but that long of a car ride is not for us. This will be our first year there at Christmas time so we are very excited!!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Hi from Sharpsville in Mercer County. About an hour outside of Pittsburgh. We always fly and are returning in July, I am hoping to find decent airfare.

I believe that snow is heading our way (Philly). We're supposed to get some snow tonite. I didn't hear that we'd get THAT much, but we'll see in the morning what's on the ground! Brrrr. Let's all sneak away to WDW NOW!

I definetly hope its warmer than the 50s when we're there. I booked a day at discovery cove so we'll be in the water for an entire day. I know they keep the water warm there and we can wear wet suits but it would be chilly to get out of the water and roam around if its under 50 degrees. Of course even if we're dripping wet on the the coldest day in florida, we'll still be warmer than at home!!

Where is home?

It would be warmer than here also (unless it was unusually cold in FL, and unusually warm in PA).

PA Bound

I'm from TN, but I'm heading to Hershey for Thanksgiving weekend. My wife & I are considering a move to PA; it's so beautiful there. But the winters do stay a bit cold for us . . .
