I really want to know this too! And want to know the dining rotations and the show schedule because we have Palo booked for dinner one night but there are a few shows, MDR's and this holiday deck party that I don't want to miss.

Cool. Thanks for the update!

Chicago area and hotels

Saw someone ask about where in the Chicago area people are, we are in Wheaton.

We're flying in the night before to FLL so we'll stay there and do private transport in the morning. We've found some decent rates at Cambria Suites in Dania Beach right near the airport if you don't mind staying by the airport. Hampton Inn Brickell in Miami has a nice AAA rate if you are a member and want to be closer to the port for a short commute the next morning. I haven't stayed at either but read some decent reviews.

Count us in for a great cruise!

We're Andrea & Greg, empty nesters from Virginia, excited to be traveling with good friends. This will be our 9th DCL cruise (all four ships) but have taken many other cruises on different lines. We've been DVC members since 1995.

Looking forward to seeing the 'new' Magic all decorated for the holidays!

It was an email that said some helpful details before you sail. Online when you check in you can sign up for email updates. This is what it said under Formal attire....

Your voyage does not include any formal evenings. However, if you'll be dining in one of our adults-only restaurants, we recommend a dress or pantsuit for women and a jacket and tie for men. You may also want to consider a tux, which is available for rental during your cruise.

Also, I have been reading that you can now wear shorts to dinner that disney has changed the policy??

Thanks. Missed the e-mail. Guess I'll be saving some money. Now my wife can take back the gown she bought.

Also, are they going to have a gingerbread house making activity? I read somewhere they have had those on pass Christmas cruises? Plus, will they do a Tea with Alice on this cruise since it is only 5 days?

Dcl just changed policy. Shorts and jeans no swimsuits. There are a few boards talking about it.

There is no "formal" night on the cruises shorter than 7 days, but there is an optional dress up night on the cruise on the first sea day. There will be photography stations set up where you can take family portraits in your dressy attire.

We are booked in at Vero Beach as well; coming in on Tuesday and checking out Saturday in the AM to stay in Miami the night before. We are DVC members but this will be our first time at VB and we are looking forward to it!
