Sorry ....
It had good reviews on trip advisor and free shuttle from airport to hotel and hotel to port.

I'm not sure about restaurants either but would love to know so good ideas!

For some reason my phone decided to stop sending me notifications when there was an update to the thread! More super warm days here in Anchorage--it was 80 here today. One of the kids in my Pre-K class brought in a picture of a cruise ship for a project that we are working on...is it sad that I knew it was the Magic just by looking at the staircase in a atrium (without the Mickey statue showing)?

Not at all. Although, when I am out in public, I very often downplay my disney knowledge as to not come off a little too peculiar. But in private, I fly the D flag.

I am going to go out on a limb, but I think 80 in Alaska may feel a lot hotter then 80 in Arizona... just my guess.

No, but I have been there many times for work to know what it is like.

I live outside of Richmond, VA. It can get up to 100 a few times a year.... but it is the humidity. I hate the humidity. It can make 90°+ brutal.

That said, I love how people say oh, Arizona is much better because it is a dry heat. When ever I hear that, I always think that the oven is a dry heat too.

Personally, if I had my choice, I would move to San Diego. I love the weather there. But on the other hand, I could sell my 3200 sq ft house and have enough to get something that is less then a third of the size.

<end rant>

I live in CA about 2 hours from San Diego.

I had a friend just move to VA last week for a job. They live near Virginia Beach. She just messaged me complaining about the humidity.
I have been on vacations with humidity but have never lived in it. And yes, youre right about the real estate. We always say here in my town that we are paying for the weather, not the house.

VA Beach is nice, but the traffic is horrid. If you haven't heard that from your friend yet, you soon will. That will be complaint #2.

Honestly, the humidity is only bad July and August. Sometimes a little at the end of June or beginning of September, but other wise the weather isn't bad.

ok, we need to find another topic other then weather.

My family is from VA. My dad an brother are VT grads and my mom is a Radford grad (then there's me who started my college at WVU before moving to TX). My brother owns a house on VA beach but is currently based in San Diego (navy).

We are roasting up here in the 80s!! We moved up two years ago from Houston and it's amazing how quickly your blood will thicken (once it gets to the 30s we start taking off layers and 50s/60s starts shorts weather). 80 degree days with the breeze at sea are perfect!!

Can you guys recommend a hotel you're staying at before or after the cruise?
Also any restaurants if you've been to Miami ?

We're getting excited about the FE!

I wanted to let you know that I starred a FB group if you have any interest in that. I read in the earlier posts that some of you are not interested and I understand that completely . Ill actually participate in both . For those of you that might be interested the page is called Disney Magic 10/27/2013.
I like to be social so it's just one more way for me to do that. I am excited to get to know you guys on the dis boards too!
Shannon
I tried to find the Facebook page but wasn't successful. I only found the one with 10/20/2013, and a November cruise. I'll check later though from my computer instead of my phone.

I'm heading off the grid (sort of) for the weekend. I'm heading down to Vancouver, WA for a gymnastics clinic. I'm trusting my husband to get us checked in and booking Palo, etc on the 29th! We just booked dinner reservations for the 24th & 25th (Bongos Cuban Cafe & Sanaa). We're another day closer to the cruise!
