Right now, I am doing a daily watch on airfares for both my Disneyland trip in January, and my WDW trip in April. The fare to California dropped a little bit, but the fare to Orlando is stuck at the same amount. I hope to see the Orlando fare drop below 200 dollars, and then I will book a flight. My friend wants to fly Southwest, but I don't like having to go to the smaller Midway airport in Chicago, versus the large Ohare Airport.
My Disney World guidebooks came in the mail the other day. I bought Birnbaum's 2013 guide. I also bought the Unofficial guide to Walt Disney World, as well as the Unofficial Guide Beyond Disney, which includes information about Universal Orlando and Sea World. I haven't had a chance to read these, but I am sure I will have them pretty worn, before my April trip.
