Me and my boyfriend decided to splurge. Flying instead of driving. Actually wasn't that bad thanks to Southwest. Was looking at $350 for gas total round trip but got our flights for $550!

$550 for two? Not bad at all! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1064.6 #3 2:35PM
I know right? I was actually pretty shocked and had to keep looking over everything to confirm it was correct. Plus, was shocked to see Southwest a official Magical Express partner now! I didn't know they had been added to that list. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 2:37PM
We used magical express with SW two years ago. - ally  509.2 #13 4:32PM
They are a magical partner for quite some time. Went there nov2011 with SOUTHWEST MAGIXAL EXPRESS - otilegna  2170.1 #64 9:46PM
We got Southwest $59 flights each way, so we are flying also! So excited!! - ncjal  259.6 #28 2:38PM
Woah! Where are you flying from!? - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 2:40PM
Atlanta. We live in sc and will drive into atlanta - ncjal  259.6 #28 2:47PM
Oh gotcha. We usually go through Atlanta on our way to Orlando when we drive. All this talk gets me more anxious for Disney! : ) - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 2:48PM
I know me too!! This is my kids first flight! They are SO excited! - ncjal  259.6 #28 4:12PM
Well I hope the love it! : ) - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 4:34PM
They* - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 4:35PM
Thanks me too! Hope you both have a wonderful trip! Where are you staying? - ncjal  259.6 #28 5:08PM
You can also put the SWA app on you phone. From it you can do your check in for your flight home. That way even though you won't have printed your boarding passes yet, your spot will be reserved so when you do print your passes you should have A or early B spots. - poohbr1205  21.2 #158 5:32PM
Wow! That's crazy! Our flying would cost us at minimum $1200, so we drive 23ish hours, ugh! Good thing we LOVE Disney! - DizneyGirl  730.9 #7 2:44PM
Yeah, we usually drive 22 but we thought the $150 extra would be worth it since we usually drive straight through. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 2:46PM
Oh I feel so bad. We only drive 11! - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 2:50PM
Yes $150 would def be worth it. $1200 is without any luggage fees too. This is a good $600, maybe $800 more than driving. Plus we have to transport food, not sure how we'd do that if we flew :( If we only drove 11, I'd be there so much more!!! - DizneyGirl  730.9 #7 3:08PM
We always fly southwest, it's usually the cheapest and no luggage fee but it's not my favorite airline, don't like that they don't have assigned seating . But yay for your great deal, flying means more time to have fun:) - tracsant  1176.7 #2 2:49PM
The no assigned seats is what I don't like also but do like sw. We are flying from Pittsburgh with 8 of us. The last time the kids got split up from us, not happy about that but it was ok. So glad you lucked out! - mmddgp  619.0 #10 3:49PM
will we be split up as a group of 4? I really want the kids to sit with us, as it is their first flight. - ncjal  259.6 #28 4:15PM
Be sure to do online check in 24 hours befor you leave I missed it last time. We all had some one to sit by but there are not kids than adults so the 10 and 11 year old were off in their own but they did ok. - mmddgp  619.0 #10 4:23PM
Yes Nicole make sure to do it on the dot 24hrs beforewhich is a pain when your at wdw , it goes by section so if you do it right away you will probably get the A group and also a number with that , it's not your seat but how you are lined up to board , depending how full the flight even if you get early B section you should be fine, at WDW you can go to the front desk and they should be able to check you in for when you go back home, we usually do early bird check in its about 25 pp round trip and it checks you in 36 hrs before , we do it so that we don't have to worry about doing at the hotel and having to sit with my finger on the computer till the min of check in - tracsant  1176.7 #2 4:31PM
Yeah any A's and early B's are decently good seating. I've been mid B's a few times and I still got a window seat. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 4:36PM
Since seats aren't assigned, most people will change seats to accommodate families with children sitting together, but still check in right on time or have one person in your party do the early bird checkin automatically. You pay 10 dollars extra, but they can go on and save the seats. - ally  509.2 #13 7:16AM
Is it the best airline, god no. But the no luggage fees are awesome and they're typically pretty cheap! We flew them to DL last year. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 2:51PM
So who do you like as your favorite.? - mmddgp  619.0 #10 4:24PM
Let's see. In the three trips I've made out there, and flying through Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas and Santa Ana (Always fly into and out of Santa Ana) I've flown American Airlines, Delta, United and Southwest. And I can honestly say neither of them. I just tend to use Southwest because they're typically cheaper (so because of that I started using their rapid rewards program) - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 5:37PM
It just seems that flying has become less of an event were you dress business casual to a get in, get in the air and get off hassle. Honestly if I could drive to DL from Orlando, I would. I mean I can but that's just..Maybe when Marion and I retire. - IndyandMarion  1278.9 #1 5:38PM
I personally love Southwest. Never had issues! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 3:06PM
I love their employees and the no luggage fees. - ally  509.2 #13 3:13PM
Agreed. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #45 4:32PM
That's a steal!! - mrsincredible  1050.9 #4 4:40PM
Wow ... thats what we paid per person .. but we are coming all the way from Western Canada. - bearlove  120.0 #3130 5:06PM
That's a great deal, congrats! - jacdanfan  8894.2 #5 5:12PM
I was shocked to find tickets for 250!. From British Colombia so it's quite a ways. With Alaska airlines which is usually crazy expensive! - allieenicolee  16.1 #183 9:24PM
Right on? I would much rather fly than drive whenever possible... Sometimes it's just easier - FrankyHLYWD  221.1 #34 9:37PM
I flew southwest for my 2 trips from SD to Orlando (not a direct flight but its alright). I like it coZ THE BAGGAGE IS FREE! Legroom might be an issue, but its acceptable for me... - otilegna  2170.1 #64 9:45PM
Yay you - 5disneylovers  984.2 #5 4:29AM
That's awesome yay!! - yessy  213.8 #38 11:26AM
