Question Magic May 10 Galveston

We are new to DCL and new to DIS boards. Wonderful place for getting tips and information. We are very excited. It will be my DH, DD-5, and myself. Not doing FE although it sounds fun. We are trying to decide how best to park our car.( Please don't say "Not Running!" )Any ideas? Someone used BOI, anyone else use them or the port parking in Galveston?

Guess I missed it while I was trying to figure out Dis board posting. Oh well, will experience it firsthand soon!

Anyone that booked a IGT/OGT/VGT room get an assignment yet?

The anticipation is painful! I thought a room was usually assigned about 2 weeks out, but I have heard nothing.

Will we get an e-mail, or should I just keep checking my Disney Cruise account?

Hi! We are waiting too. The response from the Disney CM I asked was it would show up on my reservation page ... usually anywhere from 2 weeks out up to the sail date. I am really hoping it will not be the day we sail that I find out. I've heard Mondays were good for assignments so maybe this Monday after Disney has the weekend to book more cabins. Would be interested in hearing when you receive your assignment.

I hadn't heard about BOI until now. Just looked it up and I like the idea of covered parking although DH is very particular about letting others drive our car. We were initially thinking of using ezcruiseparking at the recommendation of a friend. Anyone else have experience with them?

it's a parking garage and they basically just park it, they drove ours about 10 feet to the parking space, it's small so really not much driving they do.
it was sooo nice to call after i got out of customs and the car was pulled to front of garage and i got in and left, it's litterally right across the street from the port. no shuttle needed.

Question Any Packing Tips?

The best tip I came across recently was to pack an overnight bag for the pre-cruise hotel stay that is a separate bag from the main luggage. That way you don't have to unpack and repack everything at the hotel the day before the cruise.

Does anyone have tips for packing booze in our luggage for the flight from Columbus to Houston? We cannot carry it on, so it will go with the checked bags under the plane. We are packing plastic bottles (not glass), so it's less breakable.

Other packing tips?

We are having the same issue. Preferably, I'd like to purchase the liquor in Houston/Galveston. If you must travel with it, double bag it in ziplock and layer it with clothes. It has worked on return flights from Europe for me.

The FE update board is ready for action and will be posted outside of our room # 5524. If you are in the early FE group (A, B, or A/B) and have changes prior to our cruise, please email me at becca.zpack@gmail.com. It's hard to believe that our trip will be here in less than 2 weeks!
