    I didn't get ideal flights so I've been looking to move around our flights to extend our stay and all of the Get Away Fares for Fri - Sun are sold out with a few exceptions (our current flights) or those at $450+ pp. I checked CT, Manchester and PVD.

    I thought this would be a slower time of year :confused3 Realistically, any shot of the sold-out flights opening up?

    It looks like you are planning to be there the middle of August, which will probably have families at WDW for one last vacation, before school starts. This will not necessarily be a slow period.

    If you can modify your travel dates, Tuesday and Wednesday are usually slower days to fly. Friday, Sunday, and Monday are usually the busiest, as many business travelers fly on those days of the week. Is there any chance of doing a Thursday-Saturday trip, instead?

    As Southwest has a very accommodating change/cancel policy, I would suggest checking every day, as customers' plans change. Obviously, the more seats you search for, the more difficult it will be.

    Right Slower compared to earlier in the summer but totally expecting some crowds.

    I'll continue to stalk southwest page and maybe eventually just eat the cost. Thanks :)

    We're going the end of August and the prices are insane. I got a great price for going down, but haven't found something ideal yet for coming back. (Maybe I'll just stay! :tongue: ) I'm stalking every single day but I'll probably lock in with Jet Blue soon. It'll be $350 total per person. Not amazing but better than what I'm seeing lately.

    I have seen flights where the Wanna Get Away fares were showing sold out, and then they did show up again. I didn't try booking them, so I don't know how many seats at those lower rates were available, but they did come back.

    Same! This happened to us, too. It’s hard to be patient, but it is possible the WGA fares will come back.

    My husband just saw RT with American $145 from DFW into Orlando August 15-22. Not ideal flight times but I think it a great price

    We're flying out of PVD in April and found that it was cheaper to fly down on SW and home on JetBlue. It may worth looking to see if you can find affordable flights by mixing and matching airlines.

    That's funny we are flying out of PVD to WDW on 8/9 and returning to PVD on 8/17 and are flying jetBlue to MCO and SWA from MCO to PVD.
