Still looking for flights & not sure hwen I am going to jump. Right now the cheapest I can find from our home airport is 425$ which isn't too bad I guess.
Nice going! I put myself on the waitlist on November 14th and am still waiting for the 2 post-ABD days at GCV. In the meantime, I have a "safety" reservation at the Tropicana on Harbor. They had a web special rate of $129, which was actually a better rate than I was seeing for similar hotels in the area.

Wish me luck that my wait list comes through!

I didn't say it, but I was thinking it. Does that count?

Was just on travelocity because of an announced sale. They are showing the Lowe's Hollywood hotel for $219 a night plus tax ($252.51 inclusive) for both June 7th and June 8th. I think that's about $25 less per night than ABD is charging. Of course I don't know how that affects transfers or anything, but I thought I would put it out there if anyone was interested.

(I booked us at the LAX Hilton for $93 a night on Saturday, June 8th, non-refundable. Need to save money where we can on this trip.)

Oh man. Good for you. Very jealous! Best we can ever hope for is "direct", which is only "direct" in that you don't get off the plane.

It's so hard to find non-stop flights anymore. If we fly to Florida we can fly Jet Blue or Southwest non-stop but all the others stop in Atlanta.

Keith & Cathy!

Bought our airfare last night. I have been watching it for weeks & it isn't going down & I am afraid it willl start going up, so I went ahead & took the plunge. Now to plan our before & after days.

Trip sold out!

Just listening to the Jan 3rd podcast, and heard Kevin announce the tour is sold out. I count 29 names listed on the first page, though John and Kevin aren't listed and I guess might still come. But still, seems like a good size limit to me! Does anyone know, is this trip limited just to DIS'ers or is there going to be a few "outsiders". Those folks would be in for a shock, right!

On another topic...I discovered that our local BJs sells $25 Disney gift cards for $23.99. Am I crazy to think about picking up a few hundred dollars of these just to save 4 %? I mean, 4 % of what I spend on Disney each year would be...well, a lot.
