    I've got some friends that are planning a trip next year and have been looking at VA's prices but it is silly money for the summer school holidays. It's their first time to WDW and I've been asked for help.

    So I was wondering if anyone had been on the Dreamliner and flown into Sanford. What is the seat pitch like, are the seats comfortable and what is the service and food like.

    I looked at the Dreamliner but the website was really confusing and every time I put in dates it just said no flights available. That was for every date I put in.

    Sorry I know not helpful.

    the seat pitch is 33" i think so better than other economy seats, so around 2" extra space

    Wow, £1,500 is a lot to fly into Sanford.

    I agree Wendy that does seem an awful lot.

    We've just booked Flydrive with Virgin for next year. It isn't much different what we paid in May last year. I've never done Flydrive before but it did come within our budget. Booking direct with Virgin Holiday was surprisingly cheaper than Travel City Direct who are normally the cheaper half of Virgin. None of the agents could get me cheaper either.

    It maybe worth a look.

    i know i was looking at different prices just to get an idea really and was surprised the VH was cheaper. Their prices don't seem to be as ridiculous compared with other TAs this year. I will be waiting until April for Thomson prices to come out to see what to do :)

    That's quite good value then, I didn't realise you didn't get free drinks in economy. It wouldn't bother me as I drink water for the whole flight. Just means loading up airside :)
