    Budget airline "fun" (Frontier)

    They just announced non-stop service from ROC-MCO starting in May with a big $49 each way sale and all I can find on their website is RT flights starting at $200 and going up close to $400 for a no-frills-not-even-a-carry-on with a horrible reputation. I don't get it.

    Park reservations

    No hours posted for August yet, but in Late July you're looking at park close of 9pm at MK and EP, 8pm at DHS and 7pm at AK. So to your point, the extra $70 wouldn't even get you 2-2.5 hours after dinner.

    Hey Locals: OFF PROP Good Eats?

    I love their burnt ends (combination of pulled pork and well-done brisket) and their sides.

    WDW at Six Flags

    BORING??? The anticipation of seeing the pull station (just through that door!) is electrifying!

    Reservation/points question

    Yeah, sorry, I wasn't trying to call you out at all. Just seemed a bit like the kind of "tips and tricks" that would get shutdown in the past.

    Reservation/points question

    As I read it (earlier in this thread) I wondered if should even be censored out, like how threads were deleted about... I can't remember exactly, was it booking throwaway campsites to get a ridiculous amount of free magic bands?

    Reservation/points question

    No, you can't use non-home points at 11 months. You have to wait to use those non-home points until 7 months.

    Reservation/points question

    I guess it depends upon what you mean by "deducted."

    CBR Preferred

    CBR Preferred
