My opinion -- do the driving one.2007-10-28 20:38:32 by ---
I wouldn't risk bidding on a Florida vacation only to discover I couldn't get a decent airfare to get me there to use it.
Also IMO many people going to Orlando buy packages (air, hotel, rental car, disney passes, etc) and that's often the best deal.
