I just checked the google docs in the first post and there is 108 total with 59 adults and 49 children.

We got our docs on Tuesday and we booked through DU. Getting harder and harder to keep this secret!

Seems like so many of you booked through Dreams Unlimited. What are the perks (besides the cool gift bag)? and do they take transfers? Any cons to the TA?

This is my first time cruising DCL, but I went with DU because of the OBC and the great recommendations here. With other cruiselines, I usually book directly with the cruise line. Through DU, I received $150 OBC, plus $25 from Disney and another $50 for booking on my Dis Visa.

I believe I have read that you can transfer an existing booking to DU, but not sure if you can do that after final payment. I found out about the baskets long after I booked. Looking forward to seeing it!

Transfer.. yes.. but they at least need a few weeks before final payment date to do it in time.

i was all set to transfer our bookings to DU, but then they checked the OBC and Visa deal and onboard booking credit, and they said they could only get us like another $50 in OBC, and there was some faxing of forms that would need to be done, etc....to me it didn't seem worth it.

Now if I would have known there were gift baskets involved....

We have booked 2 expensive cruises with DU and never received anything extra other then the OBC.

Unless they have changed in the last few months.

Our DCL to Hawaii was not that long ago.

Just looked and there is still Remy options even Palo and Palo brunch.

Hurry if you want the Brunch(one left).

The DU gift baskets are only on the cruises out of Port Canaveral, as they have a setup tied to the DISboards.com welcome center in Cocoa Beach to get them delivered to the ships. The started the gift baskets in 2012.

Is definitely going to happen or do you need to make sure you get to 25 people. The only reason I ask is because I don't have a pink shirt and will need to order online.

Hi Kevin,

Right now I am short one person for 25, but I will pay for "Harvey the Rabbit" who is staying in our room Four couples have already confirmed back as of this latest update. I am hoping to get confirmation back from everyone by tomorrow at the latest. I am planning for this to happen. I've got the feather boas and tiaras all set!

If you have a Michael's craft store near you they carry t-shirts. They usually have pink in stock and are only about $4.99. You can also do a search for Michael's online printable coupons and print off a 40% off coupon too! Several of the guys in the last group did this since they didn't have pink shirts

I will keep everyone posted!
