That's good to know, I love using the metro in cities but after Paris last summer my mum has told me she refuses to do them in Barcelona so we'll give the hoho a go
A will keep an ear out for a fellow northern accent and definitely say hi. I was having a look at google street view the other day trying to get an idea of what's around the hotel and the directions of all the main sights. The roads certainly look "fun" (I'm glad we're not hiring a car!)

Transfers to Barcelona airport

Quick question - does anyone have any experience of getting from the port to the airport at the end of the cruise? Has anybody looked into the price of Disney transfers. I am imagining the prices will be huge, but then it seems quite pricey anyway as the taxis seem to charge per person and bag!

Disney charge $30 per person each way, they also told me on the phone that they couldn't offer the transfer if your flight was before 11:30am

I've added more sizes of the map image to our Vistaprint account, large and small car door magnet. Select the image size you need from the account portfolio images. Go ahead and remove any items you don't want from the cart. If you need any image resized send me a PM. If you are having trouble downloading your image to our account, let me know and maybe we can figure it out together.

I've added another image, my favorite so far

We just took a taxi to the airport, and although I don't remember the exact cost (it was two years ago) it seemed that it was not unreasonable, and that they did not charge per bag, either.

Sorry can't be more help or more exact on pricing.....

Nice work I'm going to save some of your images thanks for sharing them, I'm hopeless with stuff like that!

Also there is a flight that leaves from Barcelona on debarkation at 1045am. Is there enough time to get back to the airport upon debarkation? Thanks in advance. I have never been out of the country...lots of Disney cruises, but this will be a first for me!! Can't wait!
We are arriving the Friday as well. We are booked into the Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel I did a lot of research found this place best suits our needs. We should get to the hotel sometime after 12 noon and figure we will just stay at the hotel and try and get over the jet lag.

Do you have a link to your flickr account where we can see all the different ones you've come up with? I wouldn't mind using some for magnets and or shirts. With your permission of course!

Thanks to Annemarie I got mine from ikea UK, see USA LINK -http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20215764/
They are only $4.99! (Pysslingar wall pockets) . I got iron on stickers from China which I saw on ebay. It looks the part and a lot cheaper than the ready made FEs.
