Our Fantasy TR 09-15-12. 7 day Western

K. So you are wondering we I am starting this TR before we sail? Good question. I want to share our experiences in real time. So here we go.

My DW(37) DS(6) DS (4) DD (4) and I (42) decided in mid August that we were going to do a Disney cruise. Of course, we couldn't take advantage of the great GTY rates, because we have previously sailed in a suite and got used to the special attention. So I started my research on the Internet. I found a 1 bdr suite (cat T) for just under 11k. I called my agent and she quoted a similar rate. During my Internet search I came across COSTCO travel. They matched the price but offered a 1200.00 gift card for booking. Great deal...... But... I was loyal to my TA. I called her and she price matched the special offer. So we end up with a Cat T for a great deal. In addition, my parents decided to join us and we got them a VGT for a steal.

So we embarked on our concierge experience. We called our shore concierge 3 weeks prior to cruise. She was able to get us our ressies for both Palo and Rey, as well as Bibb and our preferred dining rotations. We asked about being seated with others and was told that concierge guest are always seated privately. Good news, I like to be on the DL on vacation.

We found out my parents were assigned and up graded to a a 5 A cabin and were directly under us by three decks... Perfect.

We are also heading to WDW for two days after the cruise. We have arranged a private tour guide for our short visit through WDW. We did this last year and were able to maximize our experience with very little time. The cost is pricey, but well worth it if you are limited on time.... Or in my case, you don't want to wait in line.

My wife is a bid part of this vacation, so she will be chiming in with her opinion. She was the rock that made this happen.

Next... The Disney dresses. All of a sudden I noticed that my wife was accumulating a large a amount of princess dresses.... How are we going to pack these...?
