Pre-Cruise

Just wanted to see if anyone had thought about a pre-cruise hotel. We're going to stay at the Springhill Suites Miami Airport East/Medical Center. They have a complimentary airport shuttle and offer transfers to the POM for $8 per person.

My group will be DH and DD, who will be 11 in a few months and when we cruise. Also coming with us is my cousin and her DH, their DD, also will be 11, and their DS, who will be 9.

Hi, My family, me, my husband and daughter, are also booked on the April 8th, 2015 cruise. We are very excited. We were just on the Disney Dream in January and had a blast. My daughter will be 14 and going to the Vibe kids club. Wondering if anyone else has kids her age going. We are also interested in joing a Fish extender group. We did not know what that was when we were on the Dream. It was fun to see all the decorated doors.

Wife and I and daughters 9 and 13 are booked on this cruise. We are really excited. This is our second Disney cruise we did the Fantasy last year. We hope the Wonder will be just as magical.

We are contemplating this drive, as well. We have never sailed from POM, only Port Canaveral. Have you driven to Miami from WDW the day of the cruise, before?

I had started looking at a few places. Have you stayed at Springhill before? Do the do complimentary airport shuttle from Fort Lauderdale or is it just Miami airport? Any suggestions are appreciated.

The drive from WDW to Miami usually takes about 3 hrs or so depending on traffic. The FL Turnpike is the best route to take with the least amount of traffic. I95 tends to go a little more out of the way as it goes over and down along the Atlantic Coast whereas the turnpike kinda cuts through the state.

Also note that when you get close to Miami, the turnpike merges with I95 and the road turns into a toll road. It is best to have the "Sun Pass" so that you can by-pass the toll booths. Traffic in the mornings is terrible. My MIL lives in Boca Raton and we often drive down to the Miami area for 1 reason or another. Driving around Miami is not one of my most favorite cities to drive in but once you get to the Port of Miami it's all worth the headaches!

We were on the Wonder last year sailing to the Western Caribbean and loved the ship! Looking forward to our upcoming cruise so that we can enjoy the Wonder and it's crew again....
