Thinking of...

doing a Park, Room, and Fly. Since we are leaving early in the morning we planned on driving around 2am for four hours and then hanging out at the airport. But a friend mentioned doing a Park, Room, and Fly which will cost the same and maybe a little less but it gives us a hotel room right by the airport so we don't have to drive through the night. Sounds like a pretty good deal but as with everything new-- routine is so much easier to stick to.

Decisions, decisions.

Let us know what you decide and how it works out for you. Lord willing, we will be making the trip soon!

My mom and I recently went on a vacation, and the park, sleep and fly package was so great. We actually had the motel the day we returned, when we were exhausted. We live about 2 hours from the airport, so it's not like we can travel 14 hours and take a short trip home. Go for the park/sleep/fly package!!!

I did a park/sleep/fly and it was the best thing ever. I will never drive 4 hours for a flight again. And the shuttle will take you right to your gate. I recommend it!

Peace

I think it sounds like a great idea. Oh, I can't believe your trip is so soon! Praying for you as you prepare to go, for your safety as you travel, for your children left behind, and for the two new children who will finally meet their mom and dad.

Much Love,
Kathie

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a Park, Room and Fly? I'm thinking the Fly means from the airplane and Room means hotel, but the park? Please explain!

Just booked our park/sleep and fly for our trip to China. It is the best way to go, actually cheaper than long term parking and you get breakfast and shuttle to and form airport. It is great. We always do it even though our flight is not leaving until 1pm that would mean we would have to leave by 6am to beat traffic, stress the whole way hoping we don't hit any traffic and then still pay for parking. So we are now leaving the night before after we put the kids to bed, relax driving to the hotel with plenty of time to spare. And then our car stays in a nice parking lot while we are away!!!
