I know quite a few DIS stay at Radisson, Cap Canaveral that is were we will stay Saturday night. It Is 139.00 for one night and parking while you are on the cruise. They take you to DCL and back.

What I can do is if any one is interesed I can call and see if we can get a discount depending on how many. I know that some DIS groups do this.

flo
We stayed at the Radisson before the 2003 Member Cruise and had a nice little DIS meet there. So those of you at the port the night before can have one DIS meet and for those of you staying at Disney (or who live near Disney) we'll be having one at the Beach Club the day before the cruise.




PDFG and all our friends who need it.

We are planning coming in a day or two early and staying near the port. Not sure what to do about transportation from airport to port and then port back to airport. Any ideas?

Some of the car rental companies offer free shuttles to/from the port. We've used Avis in the past and it has worked great. Not sure which others offer it. I know National doesn't (that's who we normally use at WDW).

I think Karen is right that is sold out about 2pm on the first day one year. Last year it didn't sell out for a few weeks.

Definitely get on the wait list if anyone is reading this and hasn't booked yet. It has been successful in the past as peoples plans change.

Congrats to all those who did make it in.

Budget is the other company near the port with free shuttle.

I think the question was MCO to Port Canaveral and back.

There are rental cars (you can pick up at MCO and drop off at the Port and vice versa), or limos. Or town cars. Lots of options depending on how many in your party, your budget, etc.

Yeah sorry I wasn't clear in my response. When we have flown down we've rented a car at the airport and used it until the morning of the cruise then dropped it at Avis and took the shuttle back to the port. After the cruise DH picked up the shuttle, picked up the car and then came back to get me and the luggage.

Thanks Karen for making it clearer and for KarenNY for reminding us of who the players are as far as shuttle.

I know it is early but I was wondering if any one be interested on doing a Fish Extender exchange. The reason it is called fish extender is you hang what you want your little trinkets to be put in on there. These are right out side the room. Please let me know your thoughts.

*Fish Extenders – We will be putting little things in them through out the cruise. Like, Paper, Pencils, stickers, playing cards, pirate things etc. To do this I would compile a list with Room Numbers and names and hand out at the DIS meet on Ship. You could PM me this.

**Fish Extender Gifts - This can be EVERY day or you pick a day to distribute all your gifts. There really is no set rule for gift-giving, it is up to you as to what and how much you want to give... each to their own accord. It was allot of fun to come back to are room and find something there. It also gave me a chance to see parts of the ship I never saw in the previous cruises.

We're in!

For anyone who hasn't seen one this is an example of a fish extender:



This is a pre-made one. Others make their own or buy them off of ebay. Some have even just used a gift bag and decorated it. It is just fun to exchange little gifts.

Thanks for all those to responded to my transportation question. I'm thinking the cheapest way is going to be renting a car at the airport and then taking shuttle.
