I've always dreamed of going to Disney world I'm a cast member on the Disneyland side so I could get in for free only problem...how do you folks find great deals on flights? I would be coming from ca

Southwest! They don't charge for your first two bags! That alone saves a lot - mkigos  48.9 #107 12:26PM
Southwest is the way to go! Check on Sundays and Tuesday's! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #27 8:22AM
^thats what I did. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 9:41AM

Southwest!! - Ariel42  262.9 #32 1:33PM
I earn miles with my Alaska Airlines VISA. If you don't have enough miles for a free ticket, you can use less miles to discount the ticket 50%! You are also entitled to one companion fare each year. That's how I'm going SEA-MCO in October. My mom & I are splitting the cost of 2 tickets in half (about the same as if I had used miles to discount the price). - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 1:46PM
I troll the travel sites & do comparisons. JetBlue has had really good fares for me the last few years. Did AirTran once & it was ok. Expedia has some great deals. Lately I've been using Kayak.com & Bookingbuddy.com to do comparisons. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 4:37PM
Southwest has best deals - skcanfield  563.2 #15 5:04PM
I use jet blue when I fly they have good deals - firestorm64rt  41.9 #117 5:48PM
Used orbitz last time and flew us air and was cheaper than southwest and we booked on my mom and aunts flight that they book months in advance. Four of us flew for slightly more than the two of them. - Bakerjars  251.9 #36 6:22PM
Fly when everyone is in school. The fares are way cheaper - Disneyaddict  374.7 #605 6:58PM
We go AZ to FLA on southwest. Love that you can rebook if the fare goes down for credit - timonT  410.5 #20 8:20PM
Never knew that!! Thanks! - Ariel42  262.9 #32 8:50PM
That's one of the things I love about SW! - Andrea84  713.9 #10 10:09PM
It seems like fares are very high right now. However we usually find the best fares on Southwest. Especially considering that they don't charge for baggage, that makes a big difference sometimes. - ally  509.0 #17 9:02PM
I emailed a complaint to southwest about there over priced fares. They told me that fuel was very expensive. However, this smart consumer wasn't fooled. Oil prices are the lowest in years. Also, when URL prices were close to 5 a gallon, how did southwest consistently have 49 buck deals? - jackskellington34  22.0 #163 12:18AM
Sometimes taking a train can save money if you don't mind the journey. - ShaggySmith  10.4 #248 9:53PM
I had trouble getting into extra magic hour at DL when I went into 2009 since I was using my main gate. So keep that in mind that. Let them know you're staying on property and you're a cm from DL, show your room key with your main gate. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #4 8:17AM
United (Continental) is probably the least expensive right now out of John Wayne. You can find tickets right now for under $300 a person round trip. And it flys though Houston which is a nice break when flying across country. - Disneymba  39.3 #5253 11:06AM
