Podcast Cruise 5.0 - Official Thread

Hey Gang

I am very pleased to post the information for Podcast Cruise 5.0.

This will be our official thread. If you plan on attending please make sure you post here so that you can connect with other DISers and Podcast Listeners.

Please note that we do not have any details or specifics worked out for this cruise yet. Those will come MUCH CLOSER to travel. We hope to have pre & post-nights available for booking within the next few months as well as information on transportation (but don't hold me to a date).

Thanks
John

UPDATED 10/01/2014
(Also sent via email to all cruisers)

As we have done in the past we will be offering DIS Transportation as well as pre & post nights for Podcast Cruise 5.0. Below is the pricing, resorts and dates. Within the next few weeks I will create a special page where you can sign up for your cruise credentials, book pre and post nights as well as DIS transportation. I appreciate your patience while I work out all the details and get the booking engine ready. Please don’t worry about the transportation or pre or post nights selling out. We will have plenty of room for anyone who wants it.

As usual all updates will be posted on this thread as well as emailed to all cruisers.

DIS Transportation
We will be offering DIS Transportation for this cruise. What this means is we will be hiring our own private bus (or buses) to transport our guests to/from the cruise.

Pre-cruise transportation will be available from the all Disney Resorts to the port. We apologize but transportation will not be available from an off Disney property location.

Post-cruise transportation will be available from the port to all Disney Resorts and/or the airport.

The cost will be $25 per person each way unless you book a pre or post cruise stay with Dreams Unlimited Travel (see below). Transportation is non-refundable.

Details on pick-up time and location at each resort will be provided much closer to the cruise and only after everyone has signed up.


Pre-Cruise Nights
11/28 & 11/29/2014 (check out = 11/30/2014)
You MUST book both nights and it will be due in full at the time of booking and non-refundable.
DIS Transportation included for free from Resort to Port when Pre Nights booked.
Rates:
Disney’s All Star Sports Resort – Standard Room = $79/night plus tax (for up to 2 guests in same room - additional guests = $10 per person per night plus tax)
Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort - Standard Room = $129/night plus tax (for up to 2 guests in same room - additional guests = $15 per person per night plus tax)

NOTE: These rates are room-only and cannot be converted to a package (i.e. cannot add dining, etc). You will be supplied with a Disney Reservation ID number if you want to add the reservation to your My Disney Experience. There will be no Dreams Unlimited Travel trip planning services available with these rates (i.e. we cannot make dining reservations nor create an itinerary for you)


Post-Cruise Night
12/07/2014 ONLY (check out = 12/08/2014)
Due in full at the time of booking and non-refundable.
DIS Transportation for free included from Port to Resort when Post Nights booked.
Rates:
Disney’s Pop Century Resort – Standard Room = $79/night plus tax (for up to 2 guests in same room - additional guests = $10 per person per night plus tax)
Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort - Standard Room = $129/night plus tax (for up to 2 guests in same room - additional guests = $15 per person per night plus tax)
Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort - Standard Room = $129/night plus tax (for up to 2 guests in same room - additional guests = $15 per person per night plus tax)

NOTE: These rates are room-only and cannot be converted to a package (i.e. cannot add dining, etc). You will be supplied with a Disney Reservation ID number if you want to add the reservation to your My Disney Experience. There will be no Dreams Unlimited Travel trip planning services available with these rates (i.e. we cannot make dining reservations nor create an itinerary for you)

UPDATED 10/12/2014
(Also sent via email to all cruisers)

I am very happy to announce that the sign-up/booking page is now live for you to register for your Podcast Cruise 5.0 credentials, transfers and/or pre and post cruise nights.

That page can be found HERE

A couple of things to keep in mind:

1. Everyone MUST sign up for credentials. Credentials will be checked for any and all official Dreams/DIS events and only those wearing credentials will be allowed entry.

2. Transfers are available both pre and post cruise. See above for pricing. Our form does not allow for you to enter a different resort for pre versus post cruise. You can only choose one. If you need to be dropped off at a different resort than where you were picked up you can email me after signing up and I will make sure that gets noted.

3. If you purchase a pre or post cruise reservation with Dreams Unlimited Travel your transportation will be included and free of charge. I ask that you sign up for your pre and/or post cruise stays first and then wait until you hear from me on how your transportation will be handled.

4. Pre and Post cruise nights are available to book now as well - see pricing and resort options above. Because this is a group of rooms we have held with Disney there are certain procedures we must follow. Here are some I would like you all to be aware of:
- We can only have the group 'open' until November 1, 2014. At that time we have to submit a full manifest and release any unused rooms. If you want pre or post nights please book them ASAP and don't wait until the last minute
- Disney wants us to submit all booking information at once so we are going to do that after the group closes. What this means is you will not receive a Disney confirmation number for the pre or post night stay until after 11/1/2014. If this is an issue and you are uncomfortable waiting that long for your Disney Resort confirmation number then please do not book through our pre and post cruise resort reservations
- Once we have your Disney resort reservation number we will share that with you so you can enter it into your My Disney Experience
- Pre and post night stays are eligible for Disney Magic Express service to/from the airport to/from the resort. Once everyone is booked and the group has been closed I will be contacting you for your flight information so we can make sure that gets noted along with your reservation for DME

For those of you not aware, Pete Werner will be having a milestone Birthday during our cruise (December 6th to be exact). We have a celebration planned for the actual date and you are all invited!!!

We will have cake and refreshments and there might be some surprise ‘guests’.

Pete has specifically asked that no one bring him presents. Instead he is asking that you take the money you would have spent on a gift and donate it to Give Kids the World. There simply won’t be enough room in his luggage to bring back gifts and he would much rather the money go to his charity of choice. If you want to bring the donation with you feel free to do so. You can bring cash or a check made out to Give Kids the World and we will make sure it gets to them.

This is NOT a mandatory event; please do not feel obligated to attend or to donate to Give Kids the World if you don’t want to.

UPDATED 11/26/2014
(Also sent via email to all cruisers)

Due to a scheduling conflict we have to change the time for the credential distribution on embarkation day. The location is the same, Fathoms, but the start time has been moved to 1:00PM (originally it was 11:30AM).

I have a dummy date too, but I have to discuss this with my group to see if the dates are good. The itinerary - meh. The important thing is being with other DISers.

Maybe you two can be roommates! Oh course - you'll have to fight over who gets the bed, as I don't think they will split after drydock.
