That is a no-brainer for me but we often start work at 5am so the early rise doesn’t bother me in the slightest. We actually fly out at 0600 for our big trip later in the month. I sure would hate to be delayed due to weather....Taking a poll. We are currently leaving Friday at ~1:55 landing at 4:45 p.m. I planned to go to work for a few hours - the airport is in walking distance from one of our offices. My DH planned to take the day off.
Knowing thunderstorms tend to be at our landing time, I can switch us to an earlier flight.
The only flight that lands earlier leaves at 6:10 a.m. (yes, there is a 6 AM! I've only seen it a few times, certain meetings, surgery, and when my children were newborns). We would have to leave our house at 4. AM. 4 in the morning!
I think you see my issue. I'd have to stay up like I do the night before whenever I am hosting a party at my house becuase there is no way I am getting up at that time. We've had early departures home in the past and I would sell my soul and others' to not get up that early.
Of course, we would be at WDW at 9:00 a.m. (my preferred weekend awakening time) and not have to worry about thunderstorms, hopefully. DVC so the room will very, very likely not be ready. We will have a car. - shoot I prepaid and would have to deal with that change.
The flight would be slightly more $ but we saved exactly that in credits already so it would be a wash.
What would you do. Keep the flight or change it?
