I am now really following your plans, prices and such because our airplane habits will be changing drastically as of now. I'm not sure if you've followed my cruise report lately but there's been big changes. The Panama Canal cruise was officially cancelled a couple weeks ago due to financial reasons. I booked a placeholder at SSR during the same time period, and just a couple days ago, Fran gave me the go ahead to lift the travel ban, and so we're committed to a fall trip. We leave MCO within 41 hours before you guys land. Our problem is that American Airlines changed their mileage redemption policy. Two Business/First Class seats used to run about 100,000 miles (25K) each. Now they're running (45K) per seat per direction. That's just about doubled! We had planned to fly to Houston for labor day and bought tickets on Southwest for that, but ended up canceling and using that credit for a trip to Denver. Then we still has some left and used that for airfare to MCO yesterday. The thing is we have to buy three seats on SW and use their "person of size" policy. Supposedly we get the money back for the third seat, after travel is complete. For us to first flight to MCO was $218 with a plane change in Houston. It was $179 when I first checked, but the price jumped $40 while I was on the phone with the agent trying to get our credit applied. The second was only $177 with a layover in Denver. That makes it $395 RT, which now I see makes the same price from Buffalo or Pittsburgh less than palatable. So I was going to research this but since you fly SW so often perhaps I can ask you and be lazy. So when you use DME with SW, can you put the tags on the bags and Disney retrieves them and brings them to your room? Or do you have to get the bags first and then put the bags on the bus with you? Going home can you check the bags at the resort before 1PM like with American? Congratulations on you BWV points! I am envious of your trips, but if I really think about it, I have Denver in August, F&W in Oct-Nov. Vegas (when we actually finish the old place). A month of weekends at the VGC for DCA F&W April 2018. Then there's a cruise and WDW in Aug-Sept 2018, and F&G 2019. So for someone on a travel moratorium, I suppose I've been pretty busy!
