I rebooked during Podcast Cruise 2.0 as well! One question though, will someone from Dreams contact us with our Dreams information? Who will be our cruise "director"? Thanks! I had so much fun that I just had to book again!

Once we get the info from DCL we will start to enter these into our system. As they are completed you will receive an email from us that indicates the process has been completed.

For now you can write to me at John@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com if you have questions - but what questions could you have 18 months in advance

Pete and I discussed this today and he still wants to limit the number of cruisers/staterooms we book on each cruise. There was just too many people to get to have some 'face time' with everyone. Next time we are going to make this a priority and to do that we need the group to be smaller.

The plan is to fill the existing group space we have on hold and once that is full we will take a 'waitlist' and only allow new bookings as people cancel.

You can wait until March and rebook onboard but I cannot promise we will still have space available. Your other option is to book now and secure your spot - pricing and bookings are available here https://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.co...-pricing-3.cfm

Please note that we will not allow folks to hold a space now and then try to rebook later and swap out the boooking. You would be holding a spot from someone who truly wants it and that would not be fair.

Thanks John! Great job this week on the cruise!

Thanks John for the explanation on the limiting of the number of folks on PCC 3.0. Since we're already booked it obviously isn't an issue for us, but we do like the idea of limiting the numbers. It was a lot of fun, but we just couldn't meet even half the number that were on this cruise.

Val & I tried to be "inclusive" and meet new folks (somewhat successfully) but we also wound up spending a lot of time with old friends. I'd like to suggest that for PCC 3.0 all the "veterans" of past meets make it a policy to adopt a newbie (need a better name for that) so that we make sure people aren't left out.

Cool, we're signed up too this time! We'd be newbies to PCC, but not to you guys!

I think that's an AWESOME idea Jeff!!

We can talk more about this as the cruise gets closer but I think we could do some fun stuff like having buttons made like 'I've been adopted by <DISBoards Name>' - or have a meet specifically where the folks that have been around a long time host and meet and greet the first timers.

I'm sure this has been asked before but any idea when Disney will release the sail dates for the Dec 2012 cruise period so we (I!) can start planning for 4.0?

I like this idea too! We haven't done PCC 1.0 or 2.0 and I'm a little nervous that everyone on 3.0 will already know each other.

Now that 2.0 is over and people are rebooked, how close is it to being full??

I'm a little worried about feeling like an outsider, too. I love the idea of being paired up with someone "in the know." This is basically our 1st cruise (and certainly the first for our kids) so we not only haven't met anyone yet but we are very new to the whole cruise experience!
I also know that John mentioned possibly have a children's activity on PCC 3.0. Although I'm not very knowledgeable about the cruise aspect, I know children and would be happy to help in any way!
