I second what Tink said! We did take the LINK from the airport to downtown, however the Pier that Disney sails out of is Smith Cove at Pier 91 and the link will not get you there, we got from our hotel to the Pier by taxi, and then the day we got back we used Seattle Shuttle to get around town and then eventually back to the airport.

To answer your question we took the Link from the airport to Westlake station and I think it took maybe 30 minutes 45 minutes max to get there. If you don't have luggage and still want to use public transportation there is a bus stop at the Pier, don't know your exact circumstances though, but a shuttle as she suggested would be a good option too, hope that helps but feel free to ask more if you need extra info!

I second the above.... Pier 91 is honestly not close to any of the Seattle tourist areas, so your best bet would be a taxi, or a bus if you can! The Link is not a city-wide train

Thanks Ashley, Tink and Mommy. LINK doesn't get me to the Pier, got it.

I know what you mean. Have you been on the Dream? Completely different to the Wonder but similar in a way. You'll love it. I am trying to get another one of those in lol.

We have not been on the Dream! The Wonder to Alaska was our first DCL cruise! I cannot wait for this one! I heard the ship is beautiful! We were so excited that we managed to score a really low GTY rate so we just scooped it up. It will be one last vacation for Jeremy this year before he goes into outtage from September-December...yuck!

That trip sounds fantastic! I'm jealous! I'm glad you liked my report, I just try to model mine after ones I like to read! so cool about the west bound transatlantic! For our 6th Anniversary next year Jeremy and I are going on the Eastbound Transatlatic from Galveston to Barcelona on May 18th and I can't wait to start the planning for that one! Thanks again for reading!!

Thank you! Well I think you were complimenting the TR? But Alaska was amazing too, so maybe you were referring to that...LOL It was much more awe inspiring than the TR was...ROFL Thanks again!!

How did you make your magnets? What recommendations do you have for resizing the ears? And how do you request which places you want to eat at on which nights? We're going to be onboard for the September 10th repositioning cruise.

For my magnets, I used photoshop to create/space them, and size them as needed. Then printed them out on my printer at home (note: I couldn't get any office places to do it for me because of copyright violations), then I just bought some magnet stickies at walmart in the craft section and stuck those on the back. Voila magnets! As far as resizing the ears goes, I am not sure what I am going to do yet, I am open to suggestions to everyone for that, I will try one more time with photoshop to see if I can get the right size, but if not I will more than likely just use different ears this time instead of the plain black ones, Not shown, I did use the pirate ones, and goofy one, and both of those worked fine! FYI!

To request a specific dining rotation you can either call DCL and tell them to put in the request for you, but if you booked through a Travel Agent, you have to get them to do it for you. I am not sure what the dining rotations are for the repo cruises or if they are the same as the regular ones, so I would just ask DCL to get an idea of what they are and maybe you can choose one from the options, but remember it is not guaranteed, just a request

Hope all of that helped, if you need more specific please feel free to ask! Thanks for reading my TR! Have a great day!
