Also see previous thread(s):
If you have questions about the cruise, please email me
rather than PM. Thanks!
Need a place to stay before or after the cruise?
$99 per night at the Walt Disney World Dolphin
for DISUnplugged Podcast cruisers only (you must be booked through Dreams Unlimited Travel for the cruise)
Available dates May 4-9 and May 14-17
Rate is for up to two adults per room. Additional adults pay $25 per night. You will be required to put down one night's deposit per stay (so if you are staying before and after the cruise you need to make two deposits). The price is $99 plus tax for a total of $111.38 per night. This deposit is fully refundable up until 7 days prior.
To reserve your pre or post cruise stay, email Tracy@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com with the nights you are interested in staying. We will set up your reservation for you and request payment of the deposit at the appropriate time.
NOTE: This rate is only available if you are on the DISUnplugged Podcast cruise. If you cancel your cruise reservation later, your rate will convert to the regular pricing.
Dreams Unlimited Travel will be sponsoring transfers between the Walt Disney World Dolphin and Port Canaveral on May 10 and May 14 for DISUnplugged Podcast cruisers booked through Dreams Unlimited Travel. You must preregister for this service by contacting Tracy@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com
Document Information and Luggage Tags
Your documents that you receive may be a bit of a let down after all the build up for this cruise. They will look like a coupon book from a mortgage or loan. If you filled out all of your documents online before the booklets were printed, your documents will be more of an informational receipt. If you filled out your documents online but didn't complete them prior to the printing of the booklets, you will receive all the forms that are required. You can complete your documents online until approximately 5 days prior. Once completed, the cruise contract will become available and you will need to print that and sign the contract and payment authorization page. If you do not bring this, you will have to fill out new documentation at the port.
If you have DCL transfers after the cruise, you will have a page in your documents that must
be given to the agent checking you in. This has your flight information. If you don't give this to them, you will need to go to Guest Services by a certain time (they will give you a reminder onboard) or you will not get to do onboard check in for the airlines.
What about Luggage Tags?
If you have Disney Cruise Line transfers from the airport to the port and are arriving on May 10: put your luggage tags on before you leave home.
If you have Disney Cruise Line transfers from a resort to the port: Do not put the luggage tags on your bags before you leave home. Put them on your luggage on May 10 before your luggage is picked up to be transported to the port.
If you do not have Disney Cruise Line transfers: Do not put the luggage tags on at home. Put them on your bags before you go to the port on May 10, regardless of how you get there.
If you do not have enough luggage tags, you can get more at the port but everything given to the porters at the port must have luggage tags. Otherwise, DCL won't know what room to take your bags to.
Every single person who goes on this cruise must have identification. In general, this is what is permitted:
US Adults: Passport OR certified birth certificate and photo ID. There are some other documents that would be ok (including military documents) and if you question what your documents are, please email me and I will check to see if they are acceptable. Basically, you need to have proof that you are a US citizen. A photo ID shows where you live now, but doesn't prove that you are US citizen.
US Children: Passport OR certified birth certificate. They do not need to have a photo ID.
non-US citizens: Passport and possibly a Visa, depending on the country of citizenship. If you have questions on this, contact me.
