About what time did you get into San Francisco? Dh and I are thinking of getting up early that morning so we can be up on deck when the ship goes under the GG bridge.
Being out on deck or on your veranda while going under the Goledn Gate is a MUST! April 2011 on the Wonder, I got beautiful pictures. We were lucky enough to not have fog at that time. If I remember right I was on deck about 5 am. There were quite a few of us braving the winds and cold temps. I will not miss it this cruise!

those of you posting to twitter/instagram from the current Pixar cruise--are you using your cell phones to do that--or an ipad with wifi or something else? Is it costing you more through your cell provider---or do you just have regular service--for example someone posted approaching the Golden Gate bridge shots I have been wondering how far out in sea we will be and if we will still just have regular cell coverage or not...thanks in advance for sharing with us!!

Do you have usernames of anyone who is currently on the Pixar cruise and taking pics on instagram? That would be awesome!

I followed the hashtag of #DisneyWonder and created a new column on Hootsuite to see anything with that tag--so far user TWITTER names that are using that hashtag currently are:

@stillsbyhill (this is also the instagram name) *may not be ON the ship but has posted pics of the Wonder recently with that tag (from port etc)

@jlmarr1622 (appears to be posting pics through twitter and not instagram)--this is the one that has posted pics from the ship I think they are the ones that posted above that they are posting to twitter and to follow along

@laffingholland (same instagram name) also may not be on the ship but has posted recent pics of the Wonder with that hashtag (could just be in the port areas etc)

There are a few others using that hashtag as well but they seem to be marketing related...

This is strange. We are on the September 30th cruise and our last day is in Ensanada. San Diego is on Friday.
I wonder if they will still have fireworks on Pirate Night?

Is the Captains Gala On Saturday night (if you know)? This is my favorite meal!!! I had previously heard it was on Thursday night and we cancelled our Palo for that night!!

How did you like having formal night your first full sea day??

Any other great things about this cruise??? What movies are playing??

I SOOOO wanted to go on the Pixar cruise, but I couldn't get time off work at that time.

jlmarr means "last" as the last night on the list (Pirate Night), which will be in SD.

Good! That makes more sense. On DCL, our cruise lists Pirate for San Francisco which doesn't make sense.

I'm jealous. On the repo cruise we went under the bridge at 3:30am and 11:00pm. It was still awesome going under the bridge but I wish we had been able to do it in daylight.

Enjoy the rest of your cruise. See you in San Diego on Friday.

I was on that one as well. We had a verandah and we were all on it. It was an incredible experience and I got some great pics of the bridge. Can't wait to do it all over again next week, though this time we don't have a verandah.

Lassiter family winery - best tour. Nancy L is great hostess, yummy food and bottle of rose w/ 2 logo glasses per ticket. Totally worth it IMO.
