Right now we are at Country Inn Saturday night, and Royal Pacific at Universal for two days after the cruise...assuming my budget catches up with me!

Wilderness Lodge before.
Animal Kingdom Lodge after.

that's the plan for now. Alicia is still making moves and waiting for discounts. We won't know 100% where we'll be for a while. All I know for sure is that we'll be somewhere on property. :thumbsup2

I'm going to stay near Port Canaveral the night before. I hope to see the Kennedy Space Center and maybe even watch the Magic depart on Saturday afternoon.

Royal Pacific after (must see Harry Potter as long as we're in the neighborhood!), probably Swan before. It's gonna be cheaper than Pop (more $$ to spend on the cruise!) and the boys are looking forward to taking the boat to DHS to use our GAD/GAD tix on Saturday.

:happytv::laundy::scared1: (those are from DS7. they have nothing to do with my message...)

Took the special deal at the Swan, pre and post cruise. Hard to pass up an Epcot hotel for $99 a night.

not sure what i'll do pre-cruise...i have to look at the calendar again..
what with the holiday and all, i'm probably going to have to cut my arrival really close to the cruise...though not that close - i get nervous about airport/airline strikes, weather related travel delays and now volcanic ash to throw into the mix..
so i'm sure i'll get there by thursday.....
so maybe the dolphin special both before and after...

it depends whether i'm on my own or DH is with me...

Got BWV pre-cruise. Only one day before the cruise.

Calling tomorrow for post-cruise. Right now we are at OKW, but looking to change that to BCV/BWV so that after DATW we can stagger back "home".

Currently we're at SSR pre and post cruise but we're hoping to try a couple of resorts post cruise - I'd like AKL and BLT but we'll see what we can get.

Good luck everyone :thumbsup2

The deal at the Dolphin last year was too good to pass up. I'd say jump on it!:thumbsup2

POST CRUISE - We got AKL savannah view at Kidani for 16th - 22nd :lovestruc Hoping to get either AKL concierge :laughing: or BLT for 23rd - 28th.

I'm very excited as this will be our first trip staying at AKL.

PRE CRUISE - DH still wants to wait list for BCV or BWV for the 3 nights, I'm happy enough with SSR - I love being so close to DTD. There have been a few changes at DTD since we were last there (or at least we didn't get to see all the new bits last Sept) so I'm sure we can spend a relaxing day there. Definately want to have lunch at Paradiso 37 - we had drinks there but no food - may also have to have some tequilas one night too :drinking:

Nice. Could only get three of the five night I wanted at BLT for standard view. I'm a point miser. :rotfl2:

Party at the Beach Club!

Should be a lot of fun George. The bridge leading to the Beach Club Villas should be wide enough to contain us as we stagger back.

Since I am not a DVC owner, the Swan rate is looking mighty nice to me.

I would love to do WL or BLT or GF before PCC 2.0 but rates for us regular folks for 2 nights is $620 (WL), $866 (BLT), $923(GF). :scared1:

Just a reminder - the number of rooms at the Swan at the $99 rate are limited. Once we run out we may not be able to get more at this rate.

If you are 'on the fence' about it please decide soon as I don't want anyone to be disappointed if they waited too long and the rooms run out.

Plus you can book our transfers from the Swan to the port to make it easy.

We're at SSR (1 bed) for 8 nights pre cruise (DD -"wishspirit" will join us for 3 nights pre cruise) :banana:

OKW (studio) for 2 nights post cruise (minus DH who departs for the UK before the cruise - 700 DISers is too much for him!) :confused3

Booking so late, SSR was all we could get 6.5 months out - but we're fine with this. Never tried OKW so looking forward to it

We will have eaten all 2010 and 2011 points with these bookings so either we get a serious attack of addonitis or we have to wait a while for our next trip :scared1:

We are at Country Inn the night before and then POR through the 22nd.

For anyone who has stayed in Cocoa Beach before, where is a good place to eat dinner? Our flight comes in to MCO mid-afternoon, so by the time we get to the hotel I think we'll be ready to eat dinner. After that we will probably just hang out at the beach for a bit. :woohoo:
