2 days at CC itinerares?

We went on the Dream last year for the first time for a 4 night Bahamas. DH loved Castaway Cay so much he'd like to try a longer cruise with at least 2 days at CC. I thought I had heard that was possible but now I can't seem to find any. Is that possible??? We'd like to try the Fantasy

The Magic October 20 sailing out of Miami goes to CC twice. It's a 5 night cruise.

I don't think the Fantasy does anything but 7 day cruises that don't stop at CC more than once.

Correct me if I'm wrong... I don't think the Fantasy currently has any trips that do a double castaway stop. You could do a back to back on the Dream. 3 night and 4 night.

The 'double dip' cruises are counted. Last year the Dream had a few, but nothing scheduled up ahead other than the Magic in October, and I believe one more in 2014.

Fantasy is set with 7 day sailings and only one stop at CC.

Many will do B2B on the Dream to be able to get 2 stops at CC. It's sometimes cheaper than a 7 day on the Fantasy.

Correction: two double dip on 2014.
Wonder - Sept 26th, and October 1st.

The Oct 20, 2013 Magic sailing is scheduled out of Miami. I wish it was Port Canaveral. I would have booked all ready. We are hoping to do WDW/cruise combo and Miami just isn't convenient. Especially since there aren't any Disney transfers.

Oops! My bad typo (and I'm on that cruise even...LOL!). Will fix in original post. Thanks!

Any chance you would consider renting a car and driving down from Orlando (or driving back to Orlando)? It's not too terrible of a drive...

It really isn't. Go straight town the turnpike (tolls) and you'll make it almost all the way to Miami without having to change roads. It's maybe a 4-ish hour drive.

So disappointed that there isn't a Magical Express option from the WDW resort to Miami. When I contacted DU they didn't even have a recommended car service.

That is why I wish DCL would sail out of the port of TAMPA instead of Miami.
It is just 1 hr and 15 minutes from WDW. Can you picture it...... WDW and two different ports to cruise out of, with different cruise itins.

I wonder why they decided to go with Miami? There must have been some financial benefit.

On a good note when I spoke with DU I asked if there are any rumblings for October promos. She advised that they haven't heard of anything yet but that there was a lot of inventory and that it wasn't moving. Fingers crossed that they offer a KSF or similar.

I'm starting to watch the Fantasy sailing on 10/19. This may work better for my family. No double dip to CC and first sail on Magic post refurb but I wouldn't have to deal with transportation and the long drive with two little ones to Miami. It would be far more convenient to WDW.
