XGatorHead 8904 Posted May 23, 2008 Share Posted May 23, 2008 Yes, with the weak US dollar, people from other countries are getting more bang for their buck (or Euro, or yen, or...) than in previous years, so Disney will may make up for lack of US tourists with foreign visitors. We are still making our pilgrimage to WDW in September this year. Early this year we got a flier from WDW with 40% off resort rates during non-peak times. We took advantage of this, and at the beginning of March got non-stop round trip plane tickets from Cincy to Orlando for $280 total per person. I checked the same flights two days ago, and the price has jumped to $759.50 total per person. I'm glad we got them when we did, otherwise we would have had to pay $1678.50 total more for the 3 of us. But then again, this is the first time we've ever been able to fly without a lay-over. I normally would have chosen a flight with one, but the price for our non-stop was great! I'm not looking forward to gassing the rental car to visit my wife's family on the gulf coast, and then across the state to more relatives on the Atlantic coast. Thankfully Florida is a narrow state! The biggest pain in the pump for me will be our annual Nascar Weekend. I and 4 other guys rent an RV and go to Bristol every August. It's always been a lot to fill that up, but I think we can count on it being even more this time! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
