2 days at CC itinerares?
 
We went on the Dream last year for the first time for a 4 night Bahamas. DH loved Castaway Cay so much he'd like to try a longer cruise with at least 2 days at CC. I thought I had heard that was possible but now I can't seem to find any. Is that possible??? We'd like to try the Fantasy:goodvibes

The Magic October 20 sailing out of Miami goes to CC twice. It's a 5 night cruise.

I don't think the Fantasy does anything but 7 day cruises that don't stop at CC more than once.

Correct me if I'm wrong... I don't think the Fantasy currently has any trips that do a double castaway stop. You could do a back to back on the Dream. 3 night and 4 night.

The 'double dip' cruises are counted. Last year the Dream had a few, but nothing scheduled up ahead other than the Magic in October, and I believe one more in 2014.

Fantasy is set with 7 day sailings and only one stop at CC.

Many will do B2B on the Dream to be able to get 2 stops at CC. It's sometimes cheaper than a 7 day on the Fantasy.

Correction: two double dip on 2014.
Wonder - Sept 26th, and October 1st.

The Oct 20, 2013 Magic sailing is scheduled out of Miami. I wish it was Port Canaveral. I would have booked all ready. We are hoping to do WDW/cruise combo and Miami just isn't convenient. Especially since there aren't any Disney transfers. :(

Oops! My bad typo (and I'm on that cruise even...LOL!). Will fix in original post. Thanks!

Any chance you would consider renting a car and driving down from Orlando (or driving back to Orlando)? It's not too terrible of a drive...

It really isn't. Go straight town the turnpike (tolls) and you'll make it almost all the way to Miami without having to change roads. It's maybe a 4-ish hour drive.

So disappointed that there isn't a Magical Express option from the WDW resort to Miami. When I contacted DU they didn't even have a recommended car service.

That is why I wish DCL would sail out of the port of TAMPA instead of Miami.
It is just 1 hr and 15 minutes from WDW. Can you picture it...... WDW and two different ports to cruise out of, with different cruise itins.

I wonder why they decided to go with Miami? There must have been some financial benefit.

On a good note when I spoke with DU I asked if there are any rumblings for October promos. She advised that they haven't heard of anything yet but that there was a lot of inventory and that it wasn't moving. Fingers crossed that they offer a KSF or similar.

I'm starting to watch the Fantasy sailing on 10/19. This may work better for my family. No double dip to CC and first sail on Magic post refurb but I wouldn't have to deal with transportation and the long drive with two little ones to Miami. It would be far more convenient to WDW.
