As a native New Yorker, I've done this trip very many times via both car and plane. And I would only consider flying. It will be cheaper, faster, and much more pleasant for all. JetBlue is the best option in terms of comfort, though not the cheapest (if that's your main concern.) Countless other carriers do that route as well. The only exception in my ...

This is a pretty bad idea, especially with checked bags. When you book flights separately like this, you're arranging your own connection. If you miss that flight to Panama, the next one with available space may not be for at least a day (Copa does operate a couple of flights a day from MCO, so figuring out whether you're on the first one or the last one ...

According to the final report from the Museum of Science in Boston, MA, concerning the same exhibit, the average length of stay (of the polled visitors, of course) seems to be around an hour, with the shortest being 15 minutes and the longest being 170 minutes. The exhibit had 37 stalls/panels in Boston, with the average group visiting a little over 19 of ...

Orlando to New York is 1740km so expect driving time to be more than 24 hrs whereas flying is 2hrs 30 min and should cost you around USD160/- one way. Dont forget to include cost of stay if driving.

I wouldn't be comfortable with a two-ticket connection that short. If everything goes to plan, things should be fine. However, all it takes is for your incoming plane to be half an hour late, and baggage reclaim to be slow, and you're butting up against the usual requirement to check in at least an hour before the departure of an international flight. And ...

I've made this drive 3 times already and depending on what your driving depends on gas cost. If you fill up before you leave its 3 additional full tanks to Long Island 20hrs on avg because there's always one area of super bad traffic. We saved our stops for food/gas around meal times or in case of emergency but driving 75 seemed to be our choice of speed, 80 ...

You are not required to obtain or use a SunPass transponder to travel on Florida's Turnpike, but it may simplify your life. Of course, if you forego it, you should avoid lanes, booths, or roads indicated as SunPass Only, which will incur a toll-by-plate charge in addition to the toll— and to which your rental car company will add a significant surcharge. As ...

Almost exactly a year ago I was in Orlando doing exactly this. We never had any issue requesting cars with car seats anywhere in Orlando, to go anywhere in Orlando. We stayed in town, not at any Disney resorts. Orlando basically survives on the tourism industry and there's enough demand there for Uber drivers to be available at most times.

Eep. Since the flights aren't on the same ticket, making the connection is all on you. In that case, I wouldn't shave it that close on a domestic flight inside the same terminal, and not checking bags (so I get to stay in the sterile area). And I'm solo and agile. In this case, you are starting with any delays from the first flight (and American owes ...

November is very much off-season for Disney - Christmas Crowds begin in mid-December and then drop off again shortly after New Years. The one variable this year is that the FantasyLand extension was scheduled for October, but crowds will still be far less than the Christmas Invasion that starts the second week of December. As someone who worked at "Mouse-...

If you need a (your) car at both ends, you might consider Amtrak's Auto Train, which gets your car and (I think) up to 4 people from Sanford FL (near Orlando) to Lorton VA (near Washington DC) overnight. Pricing is, according to a friend of mine who is doing that trip regularly, reasonable.

1) Cost depends on how many people are flying. For 4-5 people, it is far cheaper to drive. Flying a family of five is around $3000 on JetBlue depending on the season. Driving you have the cost of gas, meals and hotel (optional). Gas costs depend completely on your vehicle. My toyota sienna (fully gassed up in NY) required only two stops for gas. One in ...

Just to add some more up to date info: There are different levels of dining plan. The main one includes 1 table service and 1 counter service per person per day of your vacation. This dining plan no longer includes an appetizer, and it does not include gratuity. Also, the dining plan has been increasing in price each year, outpacing the increase in menu ...

Fixed route simply refers to regularly scheduled routes, in contrast to services like NeighborLink or ACCESS LYNX which are variable/flexible. In other words, fixed routes include local scheduled bus service, express scheduled bus service, and commuter bus service.

On calling Disney World they told OP that he has to use the site for his country, as they need different details and do bookings different depending on where the guests live.

You plan and expectation is perfectly sound. Both the entire Walt Disney World Resort and the Kennedy Space Center Visitor complex are UberX areas. Walt Disney World is also an UberPool area if you're interested in sharing on the way out. Uber does not inform the driver of your destination until they accept the ride and possibly only when they reach the ...

Flying. I make this trip several times a year, so I am speaking from experience. 99% of the time I take flights on JetBlue or Delta from JFK to MCO - sometimes from LGA. When flying, from Manhattan, it's an hour to the airport, an hour for TSA and being at the gate the suggested 30 minutes prior to boarding. The flight is an average of 2.5 hours, and then ...

I have tried both driving and flying. Flying saves about 2 days, but is costly. We have a family of 5 and the tickets are about $1200 one way(and that's on the cheap days). Driving takes 2 days. People said it can be done under 20 hours but that's a hazardous proposal. It's just too dangerous to drive that long, even taking bathroom and meal breaks. I ...

As daybreaker points out, there is no particular season which is completely free of crowds, because even in the middle of February the parks are packed for the half-marathon. Check the calendar at http://www.undercovertourist.com/planning/when-to-visit.html for the specific days you have in mind. For reasons that aren't clear to me, Disney's official site ...
