Yes I flew out of Newark, as I recall the r/t on Continental was about $350. I flew into LAX and then out of Orange County back to Newark (the Orange County Airport was fantastic, and they have a 7:45AM flight that gets you back to Newark around 4PM). I checked the airfare quite a bit as the trip was coming up and it ranged anywhere between $350-$450.

Flying out, Continental has a couple of early flights. There is an 8AM that gets into LAX around 11:15AM and an earlier flight (I believe either 6AM or 6:30AM). Remember too that once arriving at LAX it can take awhile to get to the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel by transfer...everything they say about LA traffic is true!!! If you are flying in the day of the start of the tour, I would recommend taking the earliest flight you can. I flew in a couple of days early to adjust to the time change, and so I could relax before the tour started. If you can fly in a day or two before the start of the tour I highly recommend it.

Looking forward to meeting everyone! If anyone has questions, please feel free to ask me!

Hi Jason,

Did you also add a day to the end of the trip so that you could use your park hopper ticket to tour the park(s)? If so, did they provide any fast passes for that day?

Not sure we are going to add any day(s) on either side of the trip yet.

Mark

Hi Mark,

I didn't add the day at the end of the trip last time, but for this trip I think I will. I'm not sure if they gave fast passes on that day, but I don't think so (I think I remember hearing that on the podcast that specifically talked about the trip).

Thanks for all the info Jason! I'll be looking for flights like crazy once they come out! I am considering coming out before or staying after. I think going before would be good - esp for the time change. Plus it would be cool to check out Downtown Disney and some other stuff nearby. I guess I'll decide more as it gets closer! I wonder how many people are signed up for this trip so far? If it will be a big group or a little smaller?

According to Kevin it sounds like we will hear the big news on tomorrow's podcast!

He wrote on the taunting thread:

New news about next year"s trips.

The folks that are already booked will be glad they are already booked.

That"s all I"m saying.


So I am thinking we might end up having a big group after the announcement. I'm glad we already booked!

I listened to the podcast announcements right when I got up this morning (and was 20 mins late for work!!!) and it got me even more excited! Looking forward to touring with Pete, Walter, Teresa, and Kathy! We're going to have so much fun! And I'm glad Teresa is going bc I'm sure I'll be crying over everything and she tears up all the time too LOL

I know I'll probably shed a few tears in Walt's apartment. I am looking forward to spending time with Pete, Walter, Teresa, and Kathy as well! I did briefly meet Pete, Walter, and Teresa at the Disney Institute Behind the Scenes tour. I remember they got to see Walt's apartment and I was so jealous. This trip I will be able to go up there!
