Thank you!

Another great trip report. You do a fantastic job!

I love sea days, too, so was happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves even with so many in a row. We did the Med cruise summer of 2010, but are considering Hawaii if Disney decides to expand to more than the two already on the books!

Thanks for such a thorough job. I really enjoy reading your entries.

What a wonderful TR - we are going on the EBTA in 2013 and your trip report truly confirmed we made the right choice to do this cruise.

As for your server Marianne; she is now on the Fantasy and works in Palo! We were blessed to have her as our server for dinner and then for brunch and she won our hearts from the first moment we met her. We sailed on the Fantasy in May of this year and loved it!

Thank you SO much for sharing this information! It couldn't have come at a better time since we set sail on the Fantasy at the end of this week. We will for sure be requesting to have her for our Palo meals when we board the ship!

Your trip report was great! We hope to do the transatlantic cruise soon, but the other way round starting in Barcelona.
We would then take some extra days to visit the Disney parks

Thanks for having written the report and for placing so many pictures. Great reading on a rainy Sunday afternoon!

Kind regards,
Steve

We have just sat and read this TR again for around the 8th time! We are booked on the EBTA in May 2013 and just love sitting here, reading your fantastic report, you have put so much time and effort into it.

I noticed that when you were boarding, you wrote about trying to work out your rotational dining from your KTTW card...do you know which restaurants are which night then before you board? Do they give you that information at check in?

It is is our first Disney cruise so it's all very new to us!

Again, thanks so much for a wonderful report. I am sure we will read it a few more times before May

Hi, Tink,
Susan (gonecrusin) from the EBTA group and on the EBTA with you. Been reading Kevin's TR all day and dreaming. Yes, your dining rotation is on your KTTW. L for Lumiere, A for Animators Palate and P for Parrot Cay. Ours was LPALPAL for the 7 night.

Hi Kevin,

Not sure you are still here since you haven't posted on this thread in awhile. But I wanted to say thanks for sharing your great TR and amazing photos! I have considered the EBTA and this TR answered many of the questions I had about doing a 14 night cruise. Thanks!

Hello everyone!

Just checking back in to say THANK YOU for reading and THANK YOU for all the kind words! This truly was a trip of a lifetime and we think about it often. We're not too sure there will ever be a trip to top this one! If you get a chance to do a transatlantic, I say GO FOR IT!
