Is it already time to make airline reservations? I can't wait. I am not bringing a pup either, hope those of you that are will share with me!!

Laura - there seemed to be some good prices now. Sometimes they say to wait 3 months out for deals but I think my son found me a fare that was under $200 round trip so worth doing early. Don't think it will get much lower. We hardly have an Southwest flights from here so looking at United, American and Delta.

What days are the rest of you thinking of coming and going?

Does anyone have the schedule for what goes on at Nationals? I really want to book my flight since they're starting to climb but not sure when to come and go. I'm assuming it will be similar to most years past but never attended most events at the one I went to since I was working in Atlanta and only caught part of one day of the show.

The hotel reservations that Debbie made for us are April 30th to May 6th (Tuesday to Monday), I think the event actually concludes on May 3rd but we are staying and doing amusement parks too!

I'm still checking out flights. Not sure if I am going to fly in to Ft Walton Beach and drive in with Debbie or fly straight in to Orlando. Definitely leaving from Orlando. Depends on what I can do with the miles Carl has saved up. I have never redeemed miles, so don't know what to expect exactly.

I too was wondering if a schedule was out.

I can't find a schedule for Nationals, but in previous years the first night was the White Excitement Party. This is just a fun event without dogs for socializing. The next couple of days are trials for conformation, juniors, and performance events (obedience and rally). There will also be seminars on various topics. There have been speakers on health issues, grooming, ect., all of course Maltese related. The last night there is a banquet. There are fees for some events, mostly food related.

I will be going Tuesday, April 30th and leaving Saturday May 4th. You can arrive anytime on Tuesday since nothing will be going on until the evening. I would assume
schedules will be coming out soon since you need to sign up and pay for some events.

I'm so excited Sue!!! I really wish Tyler could come too! If you finally decide not to bring him, you can always hold one (or both) of mine if you want as I'm bringing them both.

I wonder if there is a way that we can get pictures of the fluffs with Mickey Mouse since we'll be so close... That would be a blast, don't you ladies think??? I have a friend who works in marketing for Disney and I can ask. I think we might have to plan something together with it though....for a cause, I mean. Maybe for AMAR? Like a mini fundraiser? Any ideas???
