That's right. Your PAT is null regarding check-in time if taking Disney transportation. It only affects your boarding number. The classic ships don't hold as many passengers so you'll probably get to board sooner than you think. Even if there is a wait, it's much more fun to hang out at the port terminal. Very exciting!

We do have all the info we need to get gifts together, just not the info as to where to deliver them all. We will get that AND I will have copies at the 3pm meet incase. So appreciate everyone's help and cooperation with this!
Thanks again

And I'm playing the "getting Dennis to get the door magnets made" game. We leave home in 11 days! We are spending 2 days with friends in Coeur D'Alene, ID then flying from Spokane, WA to WDW on the 21st. Almost here!! I'd better get packing soon too!

I am flying on Saturday to visit family in Philadelphia. I haven't even started packing for that trip yet. I have, however, gotten my magnets together, my pirate night outfit out, and my FE gifts together. After all, I have priorities!
So looking forward to meeting everyone.

Actually, right now it's re-outfitting the "travel toiletries kit". I'm a guy so clothes are easy. Just paring down what I'm thinking of taking by an easy 30%.

While I live in the midwest for quite a while, I was born and raised in the Philly area. Have a soft pretzel and Yeungling for me!

Speaking of packing, does anyone have any suggestions on what to pack in an "immediate access" bag? I know we might be able to get our luggage and our rooms for a while, so I am just wondering what we should have on-hand. What do you do when you first get on the ship?

Excited and Planning

We just booked this cruise last week and can't wait. It will me, dh, 16 yr old son, 13 year old daughter and 10 year old daughter. Kids have no idea, they think we are going with hubby on work trip. This will be our 3rd DC (done 4 day Wonder and 7 day Fantasy last Thanksgiving).

Never been to cozumel. was thinking of ruins/beach combo excursion. we are snorkeling in GC. Anyone done the ruins/beach combo before? Looking for advice.

Also looking for parking alternatives in Miami - I have heard Premier Parking is beyond horrible. Hoping to avoid the fees at the port. Any advice welcome.

Thanks in advance
