We're just doing the 5 night wine package and spreading it out over 14 nights. I DO love wine, but a bottle every night is overkill for me.

Can someone give me the prices for the red wine packages? Number or days?
Thanks.

I don't think so either. It's fine. I don't mind taking the DCL shuttle. Going to call in a little while to book that. Now I just hope this flying stand by thing goes just a smooth as it did when I went to WDW a couple of weeks ago. It's much easier to do, like I am doing Friday to go see the Dodgers at spring training cause that is only a hour flight to Phoenix and we have plenty of flights there.

We also are renting a car at FLL and returning to MIA. Although I haven't done it before, I thought I had read that some of the car rental companies (Alamo, National, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Dollar, I think) have a free shuttle from MIA to the port. I will call to confirm and report back.

We usually drink the wine mid-afternoon on our veranda to go with room service cheese and crackers. Strangely, that doesn't stop us from also stopping in the lounge for a pre-dinner cocktail.

What is the "leftover wine" of which you speak?

Good looking out. I am with Alamo. I haven't called yet. I might just be waiting to hear your report

I just called the Alamo location at the Miami airport. They told me that there is a complimentary shuttle that runs from the airport to the port from 7:30am to 3:30pm and vice versa. The shuttle runs every 30 minutes.

Well maybe I will not be calling to book that shuttle. I wonder what will happen if I call and ask, then someone else calls. Wonder if we would get different answers.

Don't remember the price but the package includes a selection of both red and white wines. You make your choice of which one to have when you are ready for it.

Most of the postings about this have indicated the car rental places at the airport to have free shuttles to both the airport and the port. The rental places in downtown Miami do not, but you can either get a taxi for about $10 or some of them have a shuttle service for about $5/pp.

A taxi from the airport is $24/flat fee

I don't know if any of you have tried it, but the Rosa Regale is FANTASTIC. I've had many friends who really don't like wine, let alone red wine, drink it and become addicted (in a good way, I promise).

It is a sweet, sparkling red wine (Brachetto d'Acqui). It's mainly a dessert wine, but screw it, you can drink it with ANYTHING.

We had discovered it after having a similar wine at California Adventure called Magicale, that Disney has sadly discontinued. We had looked up in forums, and people were saying that Rosa Regale had the closest taste. It did and it's amazing. Ironically, Disney now carries it everywhere. We even had it as our "champagne" at our Wedding at Grand Floridian.

So, if you're looking to try a wine that's sweet, different.... or just something to potentially change your mind if you don't like wine... I'd HIGHLY recommend Rosa Regale.

Also, for those of you that think Champagne is a great idea, but a little dry, may I suggest the Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. It's much like Champagne, but sweeter.

This is so true. I am not a wine person by any stretch of the imagination, but my friends on my birthday trip to WDW insisted I try it at the wine cellar in Italy at EPCOT. Lets just say I had my fair share.
