    Just booked Southwest for Sept 24th with great fare

    I'm pretty excited right now,lol. Just booked Southwest for Sept 24th departure out of Philadelphia to Orlando for $59 each way. $139 a piece round trip. The rate was $89 each way yesterday. I was planning on waiting until Saturday when my Disney Visa billed to get the float, but $417 for all three of us to fly round trip is fantastic. We (DW & DD) were trying to decide if we wanted to go this year and we thought it might be fun to try the free dining plan. We have until June 26th to decide where we want to eat because that is my 90 day out date..

    You'll have saved enough money to attend the hoopla at the Adventurer's Club!

    I know, but I think my DW & DD have other ideas.

    Re: Just booked Southwest for Sept 24th with great fare

    Wow... these are some great deals! Do you know, we're so much closer to WDW, with Charlotte airport being our closest, and yet it would cost us more to fly than if we lived in Philly or Buffalo?!

    So... a drivin' we will go...

    We'll be arriving the 25th or 26th of September... hoping for small crowds and good weather... and available ADRs...

    (Since you can book ADRs sooner than us, please don't steal our Le Cellier ADR! Thanks!)

    Congrats on everyone's flight bargains!

    That is way cool. I was hoping to help some fellow Disney geeks get a good fare on Southwest.
