Red face So excited for the 5/2 Cruise! So happy I found this thread!

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be joining this thread with you! I have only been on the Disney Magic back in 2007 with my DH, DD 11. This is my 2nd Disney Cruise. Now that my other DD is 5, we wanted her to get to experience the best. We are staying the night before in Miami as well. Can you help us?

Would like shuttle service from the airport if possible and reasonable hotel rates around $100-$130 per night, free continental breakfast, and a shuttle package to the cruise port (dont mind paying). If there is a cheap nice hotel around Biscayne Bay we wanted to spend the day before at the mall there. I'm from New York, so if anyone knows this Florida area I would greatly appreciate suggestions.

I would also love to meet up with you on the ship! After 10 Years of Walt Disney World Vacations we are so needing this cruise! We are so excited!

Bayside Marketplace is very close to the port, has shops and restaurants (Bubba Gump, Hard Rock Cafe, Hooters and many more) as well as harbor cruise options. This may be of interest to anyone prior to embarkation, or after disembarkation:

Friday-Saturday, 10:00am-11:00pm
Sunday, 11:00am-9:00pm
I saw your post and was wondering if there are any cheaper hotels in that area that you would recommend for us with children? thanks!

Also can any one explain to me how the rental of cabanas in Cast away cay work? I heard that other cruisers get dibs on them first, if so is there ever any chance for a first time cruiser like myself to actually get one?

97 Days till the cruise!

Ok so who is contemplating staying the night before and where are the best places to stay? Im having a hard time finding a place either by the airport or near the Biscayne Mall where are the nice shops are. Any suggestions? Ones that have a cruise port package and a free continental breakfast are preferred

First cruise!

Hi everyone,

I'm getting married in September, and while DF is off in Vegas with his buddies for a bachelor party, my mom and I are whisking ourselves away on our FIRST Disney cruise! We have been to WDW, DL and DP so are definitely mouse enthusiasts, and are so excited to finally try the cruise.

I've been reading about FEs and am intrigued - but I'm curious, is this generally something only parties with children participate in?

Also, besides preparing a meeting point beforehand, is there anyway to distinguish fellow Dis-ers on the cruise? No buttons, ribbons, etc that I could wear/look out for? Figured it would be a great conversation starter!

Welcome and congrats on your upcoming wedding!

The FE is for everyone with or without kids....we currently have 5 cabins signed up.
