Hello all, I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments. We leave on 1/14 for 7 days. Q1. - will we need sweatshirts for evenings on deck? Haven't been able to figure out the potential weather situation. Q2. - How long does it take from the Orlando airport to the ship? DCL transportation. Q3 - I read somewhere that people took their own bottled water? Has anyone done this, is it worth the extra luggage space and weight?

Thanks for your help..... we are all very excited.

Not quite sure when you are sailing so the answer to the sweatshirt question could vary, I know we are sailing in May - this trip, DH and myself will bring sweatshirts for at night on the deck (just in case) but we do not expect to really need them other than if there is a storm.

As far as needing them inside, I think any lightweight sweater is fine for the chill in the theaters or restaurants.


Transportation MCO-Port - driving time is approx. 45 min - 1h. you want to factor in additional time to get your car, or get to the bus, get your luggage.

Lastly; I would think a family that drinks alot of water would find bringing their own worth the hastle of weight - also, it leaves room in your suitcase for presents on the return since the water will be gone.

Good Luck to you.
