You, too! We're really looking forward to this cruise - the last week before we go back to school...

We are coming in late on Thursday staying at Swan & Dolphin for the pre-cruise. We are going to Theme Park Connection on Friday, love that place.
Can't wait to get this going.

Jeff -- Thanks for putting this together.

Michael is Merry Mousketeer on the boards. For those who listen to the Disneyland edition of the podcast, he is on that team.

We are flying into Orlando on Wednesday staying at Bay Lake Tower. Who will be joining us on the bus ride to the port?

We will be at the Swan for 2 nights after the cruise flying home on Labor Day.

Looking forward to meeting new people and seeing those of you who we have cruised with on prior DIS cruises.

Carol
It's a great day to be alive!!!

Since I've never done a cruise before what's the best way to get from the port to the airport at the end of the cruise? Taxi or would I be better off with a town car service?

I do hope you can still sign up for the transfer from the Swan/Dolphin to the port, plan on staying a few nights there before the cruise(am booking through dreams through the special rates page). I joined sometime after the offer of the free transfer anyone know if I would have to pay or if I'm able to hitch a ride? I'm willing to pay for it I just need to know how much so I can budget properly. I know it sounds silly that I have to budget like this but it makes a difference on how long I can stay at the Swan. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Port Everglades is VERY close to Ft Lauderdale Airport. The most convenient way would probably be a taxi.

Transfer pick up location

Will the transfer pick up be at the Swan and Dolphin hotels only? We'll be staying off property and wondering if it would be easier to stay there pre-cruise.
Thanks! Can't wait!!!

So far everyone from the podcast is expected to be on this cruise. The only exception is Corey and Julie - we recently found out that's the first week of Ferris' school year so they might not be able to come on this cruise.

We're still working out the details of the transfers but I can say for sure they will only be from a WDW on-property hotels. It does not necessarily have to be the Swan/Dolphin.

I know you're next question will be can you stay off property and still use the transfers if you get to a WDW on-property hotel - the answer is yes, as long as you can get you, your famliy and your luggage to a WDW on-property hotel by the deisgnated pick-up time (which has not been worked out yet) you can use our transportation.
