Alicia - Can you please update my dates in the first post? I'm tentatively looking at the 15th Sep - 12 Oct. Target destinations: DLR, Sedona, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde, Durango, Orlando (Universal and WDW).

Thanks!

From memory, they start them towards the end of September, with the first being the last Friday of the month, so you might get to go to one on the Friday before you go home (27th Sept). I think we'll go to the Tuesday night party, which should be on 1st Oct. Hope you get to go, wouldn't want the girls to be disappointed! Lol

Thanks everyone. I've gotten a lot of great information from all of you. Now that it's official, I thought I'd join the page. There will be 7 of us going. My parents, my brother and sister-in-law from California, and my wife and daughter who will be 4 for her first trip. My wife also has never been. Time to share the magic.

Welcome Grinder! A grand villa? That will be a lot of fun

So this morning I booked flights from LA to Las Vegas! AA had five first class seats available for frequent flyer points, so now we're flying to Vegas instead of driving. Never flown first class before - it's just a shame the flight is only an hour long and I'll have the three rugrats in tow so I won't be able to enjoy it all that much!

We will stay at the airport the day we fly in and then fly to Vegas at midday the next day. Another thing to check off the list!

Welcome Grinder.

I have also booked our LA-Orlando-LA flights using frequent flyer points. Total cost for 5 people was $23. Pretty happy with that. Our points balance is looking a little sad.

Still need to find a hotel in San Francisco, and book car hire.

How exciting! I haven't even flown business class, let alone first class (actually, didn't know they had first class on those short flights!) I'm sure you'll enjoy it, no matter how short it is!

Jade, $23 is a bargain for those flights - I have a Qantas ff card, but rarely use it, so my balance is tiny. But it seems like it must be very worthwhile to have (if used!)

Yep, ours were $12:50 all up - pretty happy with that. I hate how much Qantas charge in taxes on flights leaving Australia. The US ones are far more better value for money

I'm not expecting much tbh, but it's still fun to say I'm going first class

We flew first class with Alaska Air many years ago. Was a total joke, but at least I can say I have flown first class.
