Freebie Friday: Carpooling to Ski Resorts & Free Kids' Flights to DisneyWorld

Calling all ski bums and bunnies: you might have to schuss alone, but you don't need to drive alone. Just surf to either or to arrange shares; the sites work particularly well for Colorado, but I've heard of folks who went to the second one and managed to get a lift to resorts in other western states.

The savings go beyond the cost of transportation. Resort areas such as Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin want to reward those who help keep the highways leading to their resorts traffic free by offering deals to carpoolers, from premium parking or discounted lift tickets. (You'll find a full list of these offers at the GoI70 website).

American Airline Vacation's Own Form of Fairy Dust
Remember in Peter Pan when the guy in tights sprinkles magic dust on the children allowing them to fly? Well American Airlines Vacations is pulling the same trick, offering free flights to children when their parents book air and hotel packages to DisneyWorld. Once in Orlando, the entire family gets whisked from the airport to DisneyWorld on a free shuttle.

The small print on the offer is a bit more earth-bound, but not too bad:
  • Vacations must be for a minimum of 3 nights
  • Stays are at Disney Resorts only, but they included the lower-priced options 
  • The offer is valid for "most days" between Feb 17-Apr 16, Apr 28-June 14, Aug 14-Oct 1
  • Bookings no later than Feb 13
