I guess it just means more chump change to blow onboard!

Wow! That's good to know.

If anyone thinks they might be interested in this let me know. Thanks
We would be interested but we consist of 2 families.....do u think that would be too much??

Just a reminder to everyone today is the last day to book or cancel anything before the cruise. After today yoou will only be able to book once onboard, and they can still charge you for anything you want to cancel.

We leave in the morning for a 17 hour drive . . . probably spend the night in GA somewhere and pull into WDW around noon on Friday. I STILL haven't packed. I think I'll just get up early and do it. Let's see, 2 bathing suits, some t-shirts, flip-flops . . . anything else?

See you in a couple of days.

John, you sound exactly like my husband lol. Good luck with that drive. I live in PA as well and I tell you I could never make that drive. Well we have once and I tell you I could never do that again. Your a trooper.

Where is the best place to keep passports while at ports? I've read both to take them with and to leave them in your cabin.

I have always left mine in the cabin safe. Some people make copies and take the copies into port with them.

Since it's just myself and my son, I only take excursions through the ship, and never venture off too far, make sure I'm back on board early...etc.

I plan on keeping mine in the safe in my room. I heard from several people not to take it off the ship in case it is lost or stolen.

The weather for Saturday looks pretty good here!!! And we're expecting highs in the mid-80's. I'll make sure all the thunderstorms finish up today.

Hoping for blue skies and sunshine

We head out today too for a long drive from WV. About 13 hours. We don't leave until I am done with work. Only working a half day but not sure I can do it with my brain on Disney mode already. Hubby worked last night and hopefully will get to sleep a little while I work. I really don't want to do the driving. We hope to make it past Columbia, sc. Anyone else staying at country inns and suites Friday night?
