Four generations..seniors,tweens and special needs Dec 1-8th

Two years ago, my mom decided to book a cruise to celebrate my Grandmother's 90th birthday...God willing It was to be four generations to set sail on the much anticipated Fantasy! My mom, Grandma, Great Aunt, brother, sister in law, 3 boys, myself (Jen), husband and our 2 girls. Traveling with 12 people, I knew it was going to be a challenge from the start! 2 seniors in a wheelchairs, 2 with add/adhd, 1 with autism and 4 of the 5 kids tweens. My brother, sister in law and I have been to Disney enough to know what all was involved, but bless my mother's heart, she had a vision of what she was hoping to get out of this. I'm not crazy about December, the water is cold at Castaway Cay and the weather in FL is hit or miss. It's 34 here in IL, I want 80 not 50 in Because of my brother's job, December it was. Then on to booking airfare. Most of us young ones are not early birds, but it was decided that we were getting up at 3am to catch a 7am flight out of Midway Chicago on Southwest it's 1.5hrs from home. We like Milwaukee but there were no non stops until 11am. So we suck it up with lots of caffine I guess. We were hoping to stay on a monorail resort but we just could not afford it, so we decided to stay at Caribbean Beach. Have stayed here before, enjoyed it, so why not? We book private transfers, hoping to make a stop at the store before both our pre and post cruise hotel stays. What a big mistake this company was..never again! Reservations are made and we all are good with it.
