I’m so excited…we booked our airline tickets to Disney ! We will be on our way in a little over 2 weeks. The kids have already begun the count down and if you ask them, they will always know how many days we have left. 😉
We weren’t sure if we were going to fly or drive. My husband is not a big fan of flying and buying airline tickets for the 6 of us for sure would not be cheap. However, if we drove, he’d have to take off extra days of work, we’d have to pay for at least 1-2 nights in hotels on our way down, etc. And as a side note, the drive from WI to FL is not fun. Very boring without a whole lot to see or do in between.
I started checking online for prices and figured it would cost us a minimum of $2400 for the 6 of us. Eeeks! Then a friend told me that they booked out of Madison, WI and got flights for a little over $200 each! Madison is about a 3 hour drive for us but to save that much, it would be worth it.
I started expanding my search to include other airports not as close to us and sure enough, I ended up booking out of Madison for just over $200 each.
So we’re leaving on a Jet Plane! 😉
The kids are thrilled to be taking their first ever plane trip and I’m searching for fun things for them to do while on the plane.
If you’re planning a vacation or trip soon, it might be worth it for you to at least check the outlying airports. Never know when you’ll find a great deal!
