    Re: magical express

    I'm not sure what airline you're traveling on Chrissy, but in February my fiance and I were in that same position. The cheapest fare put us on a 4pm flight from Dallas so we would have gotten to MCO around 8:30! GROSS! We decided to try our luck and get to the airport in time for the very first flight of the day and put ourselves on the standby list. We got on that flight and instead of getting to MCO at 8:30pm, we got there at about 10:30 AM! It was like getting an entire extra day at WDW.

    We flew on American. At the time they didn't charge a fee to standby for an earlier flight, I think now it's $50. Just a thought. If the extra $50 still leaves you with a cheaper fare then I would say its definitely worth it.

    See that's why I love getting there early... It seems as though you have another full day...

    Re: magical express

    katie... there is 3 flights leaving for orlando that morning at 6:25 on airtran.. so i would think my chances of stand by would be awesome

    516/868 6:25 AM 10:36 AM 1 stop
    (4 h 11 m)

    516/846 6:25 AM 11:54 AM 1 stop
    (5 h 29 m)

    516/746 6:25 AM 2:08 PM 1 stop
    (7 h 43 m)

    this last one isnt any good.. because our flight leaves at noon and gets there at 2.. so it would be pointless
