Heard on the radio tonight that www.budget.com is offering rentals of their Ranger for 19.99/day if you rent online. Looked at the website and it's there - although I didn't look far enough into it to see if there is a "catch" - but even with some insurance or whatever tacked on - it's still a nice price for anyone looking for some transporation freedom coming down for Winterfest. Budget is very convenient to the Orlando airport.
So - you've got airfares for under $100 round trip, car rentals for $20/day, and there are hotels around for $60/night, a little more and you've got deluxe accommodations (look into time shares for short term rental - excellent deals - even apartments for low cost - multiple bedrooms - good for sharing cost.
And considering that you get all three days of Winterfest for what is it $150/175 - it could be the cheapest and most fun Florida vacation you ever came up with - not to mention the opportunity to work with the "Odyssey" team in a small class intensive format...
But maybe too many northerners can't bear to get away from all that pretty snow and ice for a long weekend of training and fun!
