Ask away!! I'm happy to help. I have been on 8 Disney Cruises so far and by the time this one rolls around I will have been on 10. I have been on both the Magic and the Wonder and done cruises ranging from 4 nights to 15 (ok this summer will be 15). I've also been in a variety of stateroom categories.

HI Tracy,
how long does it take for a deposit to go through? (for it to appear in my clients services area)

i am soooooooooooooooooooooo excited about this cruise...
i think it's going to be great to have so many disers on board!!!

on our last cruise (or maybe it was our first cruise), camcolt was on board along with Barb and Tony (i think that's their names), but that was it...
no one else i 'knew'.....i'm really looking forward to being on board with lots of disboard nutcases like me....

I should have done my homework on this, but are all the cabins non-smoking? Also, do most people just pay for the DCL transfers from the airport to the ship, or do they arrange their own? I feel almost certain we will be going to WDW after the cruise and thought renting a car would be the most economical thing to do for four people. Any thoughts or recommendations on this? We also need to decide where to stay the Saturday night before the cruise...we're coming from the west coast so no flight will get us in early enough to do much the day we arrive. I guess our options would be an airport hotel, WDW, or somewhere near the port.

the cabins are all non-smoking (people can smoke out on their private verandahs)

The deposit can take a few days if it is made on the weekend. This is group space and that department is closed on weekends.

Yes, all cabins are non-smoking. As far as transfers, this depends on you. When we are flying in same day, I usually use DCL transfers. I'm using them to go to the airport after our next cruise because we can get our luggage sent to the airport from the ship since we are using a designated carrier. If we go to WDW before or after the cruise, I either rent a car or use a town car service like www.fltours.com.

All of your options for the night before are good. Just depends when you get in, how much more traveling you want to do after you get in. I would stay at the Hyatt if you get in late. If you have time to enjoy WDW, head over there (you can get Magical Express to WDW and then get your DCL transfers from certain resorts at WDW). Otherwise, I'd drive over to the port and stay nearby.

but despite the fact that it's group space, that specific cabin will be mine, right?

(sorry for all questions - my last two cruises were directly with DCL, so i just want to confirm that it will work the same way with DU).

It does work the same as when you book directly with DCL. If you have specific questions about your reservation, feel free to email me at Tracy@DreamsUnlimitedTravel.com.

you'll be surprised at how quickly it will get here..

our first cruise we booked pretty close to the cruise, but the second one, i was determined to get the walt disney suite, so i had to book waaaaaaaaaaaay in advance (i dont' remember how early)...
but the time went by pretty quickly...

this cruise is actually only 15 months away...that's really not that far away at all....

Well, let the interrogation, errrr I mean the questions, begin. Tracy, I was thinking about the dolphin encounter at the Atlantis resort that is described in the list of excursion on the cruise line site. It's expensive, but the other one is via a boat ride, so I was wondering what you know about them.

Thanks,
Kim

The Blue Lagoon Island Dolphin Encounter is just a swim with the dolphins. Here is their website http://www.dolphinencounters.com/

The Atlantis Dolphin Cay and Aquaventure is a dolphin swim plus admission to the Aquaventure waterscape and you can spend the day at the Atlantis Resort with use of the beaches and pools Here is their website http://www.atlantis.com/water/aquaventure.aspx

Both have dolphin encounters. With Atlantis you get a lot more. Depends if you want the more that you get.
