Wink Deal May Be Current, But It Isn't New

While the above may currently be a deal, it's not a new one. In fact that is exactly the price we booked in October

It is a GOOD price for DCL, though I'd love to get KSF or GT for this sailing. Don't think either of those are coming soon enough for my comfort

We'll just be happy to get aboard! Making our final payment this weekend!

I know I'm not brave enough to wait it out either. I was going to wait until onboard to book the Southern Caribbean on the Magic in Oct 2014, but there are only 4 sailings and the cabins on 2 of the 4 are going VERY fast.

I read on mousesavers and on a board somewhere that I should be able to rebook once on board and get the 10% discount. Either way I wanted to go so badly I wasn't willing to risk it to wait.

Doesn't seem like a deal to me

I doubt we will make it the pirate night party on deck. DD even with a nap typically can't last past 9pm...and if she is up past 9 she isn't in a party mood.

I am so excited to see the new fantasyland! We haven't been to WDW since 2009 when I was pregnant with DD...so much as changed. And since I didn't get to ride my favorite rides that trip, I am hoping to fit in some baby swapping at some of them this trip.

I started shopping for FE gifts this past weekend, and had little success..

For others staying pre-night at Hotel Galvez, what time are you arriving in Houston. I think our flight lands right before 2pm.
We are driving and should arrive at Hotel Galvez about dinner time. I'd say 5-6.

Maybe we could at least meet!

If you need help we'll do what we can.

Recommendations are appreciated. My DH loves good seafood, so I would like to find a great dinner spot that works for having an almost 3 year old as well.
Probably the best and most famous seafood place is Gaido's. If you don't mind very casual they own Casey's next door. A lot cheaper and a similar menu!

I'm semi-local and was just in Galveston for Mardi GRAS if you have any questions.

On various threads, I have seen pre-designed signs cruisers are putting on their doors. Posters then request personalizations of these pre-designed signs. These are posted on photobucket. Is the only way to have a sign personalized is asking the person posting to do it and upload it to the thread for you or can you somehow download it from photobucket and then personalize it yourself?

BTW...Great find...I was at our Disney outlet store yesterday and found a printed black and white sheet of magnets with all types of of iconic pictures and expressions such as Mickey's wizard hat, the castle, each of the names of the parks, "Believe in Magic," "Dream," just to mention a few. As I checked out, I was informed these can be colored. The girl checking me out said they once had the markers. Didn't even think of doing that; I will be breaking out the Sharpies soon! These will be perfect to decorate our cabin door.

Pumped up for Sunday

My DH and I will be on this cruise with all you guys! Can't wait. The last time I was on a cruise I was in high school & my DH has never been on a cruise. This will be so much fun..Anyone out there waiting like me for Sunday to book cruise activities? I hope there are still early times for bus to HS, crossing my fingers.

For now the strategy remains "wait and see" and make the TA do all the hard work if a discount is offered.
Just an FYI
Did u see march 29th has the GT rates again but at a much much higher rate!! The IGT starts at 1969!!! Wow!!! Glad I didn't cancel if ours ends up like that. The OGT is nearly 2300 and VGT is 2700!!! Previous the VGT was the 1969.

We're coming!!

DH, myself, and DD (10) will be on this cruise. We currently have a GTY and are anxiously awaiting our assignment. It's our first time (of 6 cruises) not to book an actual number. DH gets sea sick and we always cruise deck 2 aft. But with the prices being offered, he was willing to take the chance. Here's hoping it pays off, otherwise, he'll be sound asleep for most of the cruise...

See everyone on board!

After much debate, I cancelled before the paid in full date. I am going to hold out hope that low IGT, OGT, or VGT rates are offered.

Not sure if it helps you, but I cancelled our cruise and we were in inside cabin 2011.

Part of me wants to join you in doing this, but I'm so nervous about the price increasing. We are new Disney cruisers. Is there usually a significant rate decrease on cabins after final payment kicks in?

I better make a decision quickly since today is the last day to do this without penalty.
