I agree, I definitely am looking forward to the surprises/not knowing what to expect. It's part of the Disney MAGIC!!

This really depends on your budget and specific interests. Are you willing to splurge on a Deluxe, or is a Moderate more your style? The only thing I will say is for that for your honeymoon I would avoid the values...we actually stayed at All-Star sports for the three days of our honeymoon (we were able to add on those three days very cheaply for a few reasons, and we wanted to keep with the theme of keeping costs down)...and we regretted it. We were right by the pool, and it was NOISY. I didn't expect our choice of hotel to really affect our level of romance, but it really did.

On the other hands, I will throw a slightly controversial recommendations out there for the Swan/Dolphin. In many, many visits to WDW throughout my childhood and adulthood, these resorts had never come up for consideration until my most recent visit a year and a half ago. The Dolphin will be my go-to resort from now on. The location cannot be beat, and the rooms are truly deluxe-style rooms at moderate prices. You are able to walk to both Epcot and DHS. With the many discounts the Swan/Dolphin offer separate from Disney, we paid less for a room there than we would have for one at Port Orleans Riverside. Additionally, when I mentioned we'd be staying for our anniversary, the front desk upgraded us to a BEAUTIFUL alcove room that featured two balconies and a view of the Boardwalk and Epcot fireworks. (All I will say about that experience is WOW.) The pool is ridiculous, to say the least. The restaurants in both resorts are fantastic. Cannot speak highly enough of that particular choice.

Can you get the bridal party to help you spread the word without the bride knowing?

mrkyyyle - was that part of the romance package? For our HM 3 years ago we would have had to pay extra for the champagne, rose petals, bathrobes, etc.

Yeah, that looks and sounds like the Romance at Sea package, which I tried to book for our honeymoon in 2011 and they said they don't do it anymore.

We didn't book anything extra, granted we were in concierge so I don't know if they have extra leeway in doing stuff for guests etc.

Ah, concierge - that explains it! For a moment I felt like I was getting cheated - twice

Love,

Your lowly fellow cruiser who won't even splurge on a verandah room...

LOL yeah, they have a bit of extra leeway for doing things for guests. So you did pay for it, but with your base fare as opposed to adding it on as an extra thing. I'd love to sail concierge one day but it would have to be on a classic ship for me to even think about the price, and I doubt DCL will keep those prices once both classics go through the extended updates in the long dry dock.

That's Saaaaaweeet!! Thanks so much for sharing! Seeing those pictures makes me super stoked to go now! do they do the towels like that every night? What's the difference between a Concierge package and a regular package? (I'm new to cruising and want this to be special and unforgettable)

I'm not quite sure how I could handle that one. No matter what I think I'd be too excited and slip the word, haha. I need a good trick to play on her...
