Distinction Flights to Orlando

Recently our Aeroplan Distinction Flights took off to much warmer climates during the very popular March break season. Distinction members have access to these exclusive flights and they couldn’t wait to share their flight and vacation experience with us.
Aeroplan Member Glen had this to share with us about his Distinction Flight experience:  “This flight rewards plan is a perfect way to reward us during the times we can get away with our families. The special check in window, food and beverages on the flight all made it a feel like a reward rather than a hassle. Thank you Distinction!”

The journey certainly starts at the airport, but the memories and experiences continue when you arrive to your destination. Distinction Members who traveled to Orlando had a great time and were certainly  happy to leave the Canadian Winter behind them.  Here are a few experiences our members had in Orlando, Florida.

Edith M. from Toronto had this great story to share with us:
“Our Distinction flight de-iced and taxied down the runway as snowflakes from the worst snowstorm of the entire Winter hit Toronto. We were very thankful for an early morning flight. By 1:00 pm we were sitting down to lunch at our favourite Orlando restaurant with my sister & brother-in-law and other Canadian Snowbird friends.

It was so wonderful to trade in our boots & parkas for bathing suits. As soon as we settled into our timeshare, we were off to the pool & hot tub. We enjoyed an entire week of fun in the sun with family and friends.

 Our favourite tourist attraction is a visit to Disney’s Grand Floridian Hotel for lunch, then a walk about of their beautiful lakeside property. Take a ride on the Disney bus to Downtown Disney for more walking throughout beautiful shops. For afternoon an Coffee break we headed to Ghiradelli’s for one of their specialty coffees topped with real whip cream.

On Sunday, we started off attending early church at First Baptist Orlando, then we drove to Lakeland for lunch at the beautiful Tuscan-style cafeteria of Southeastern University. To walk off our delicious lunch we drove to Circle B Bar Reserve (Conservation area) to look for alligators. Try to visit on a day when the wind isn’t blowing. Apparently, Gators don’t sun themselves on windy days. The day was still young, so we headed to MacDonald’s for refreshments before attending a Concert by The Easters at Lake Gibson Church of The Nazarene. The rest of the week was spent by the pool.

Thank you Aeroplan Distinction for transporting us to a spectacular vacation away from snow and cold. We loved our trip.

Medard from Ottawa also had a great time! “The trip was for our daughter and granddaughter to come for a visit from Ottawa. Flight was smooth, and service was good. Great value. They were able to swim, visit the Homosassa and to take several trips to shopping malls!”

Here’s a picture of one of the hippos from Homoassa

The lasting impression that Orlando had for Christina’s family, especially her son, will last for years to come. 
Here is more about their family trip to Orlando: Our family trip to Orlando was an amazing experience. My husband and I took our 3yr old to visit his grandparents who vacation down in the Orlando area for the month of March. We welcomed the sunshine and spent the days in the pool. The highlight of the trip though was taking my son Hudson to his first major league baseball spring training game where he got to meet Orbit the team mascot. He’s been talking about it ever since. “

    I only stayed with Aeroplan as I thought the distinction would give me better access to flights. I am trying to book tickets to Mexico, what a joke! 20hrs, two to three stops!
    Aeroplan, get your act together and start offering what other cards are offering, they are called seats!

    I have achieved dSilver.

    As for dSilver I knew that there won’t be any charges for the 2nd baggage when I am flying with AIR CANADA. I got a return Aeroplan ticket from Toronto to Winnipeg. While going from Toronto , they did not charge me for the 2nd baggage. I was very happy.
    while returning from Winnipeg it was not necessary to take 2 baggage with me but I took it (& it was under weight as well),because i was sure that there won’t be any charges for the 2nd baggage. But to my surprise at the Winnipeg Airport I was charged $20+ taxes, which could have been avoided by me if I knew that the information on this website is wrong.

    Areoplan has not been been forthcoming with all that Distinction flights as I read all the info I receive. Trying to get an international flight from YVR to DUB being somewhat flexible without flying to multiple cities seems to be impossible. I have taken many flights in the international flights in the past and it is getting harder to book seats every time. Your Distinction program offers flights that have no interest to me and the auction items always seem to be for events in the east, don’t forget Canada has 2 coasts.

      Hi Jim,
      Airlines sometimes release seats a bit later. I would suggest checking back often and you might find the flights that you are looking for.
