Kids Clubs....

My understanding is the kids clubs are part of the cruise. It might be different for babysitting after Flounder's Club, but not for kids during the day.

Our airfare was around $450/ticket but that also included transportation to/from the airport. We ended up booking it through Disney because we were told if we did that Disney would be responsible for getting us on that cruise even if the flights got messed up.

Has anyone heard of the Disney Passport? It's supposed to be some book that tells all about Disney and traveling and the cruise? Kind of a planning guide of some sort?

Crazy Question

Wes and I will be traveling companions with another couple (she is a TA with a different agency) from Ohio and we will be celebrating Tom's B'day while we're on this cruise.

My question is: Does anyone know the length and width of the veranda enclosure as I was thinking of having a sign made up and attaching to their veranda. I'm thinking it's about 6.5 ft or longer.

Hopefully somebody knows!

Thanks in advance!

Deanna (and Wes)

I am sorry, I have no idea. Go ask this on the main forum page - someone will know. They will also know, from the repo cruises through the canal, if you can do this. I know people seem to get them for that cruise for the pics.

I wrote out a LONG post twice this morning and lost it when posting - I even know better to copy it first, but alas - -- frustrating!

OK - so here goes again.

Hopefully in order of questions asked that I can answer:

Delta - yes, the flight is back up in price again. It's been seesawing lately - and I don't know if we will see the $350 price again. I posted it when it was down hoping someone would see it.

Notifications: I think I figured this out. there is an extra step on the subscription page of your user CP - there seems to be a check box to the right hand side of the page next to the thread name that you can check to receive instant notification of posts. I would caution people using this. Sometimes, as we get closer, it becomes a nuisance.

I will try and post every few days, so you can always come and check for a new picture.

JetBlue should be opening up sometime soon, actually. They are out ot January now, I think.

SW opens up betwene 3-5 months out. They just opened the November dates and there is a lot of weeping and nashing of teeth going on over on the TRansportation board. I think the days of $79 fares one-way are out of the picture.

If you haven't found it yet, definitely check out the TRansportation board. That moves quicker than the cruise board - so it's tough to keep up with sometimes, but it is a font of info and a friend of mine is the moderator! Goofy4Tink and she loves to cruise!
There will be a thread designed specifically to notify you of any rumors or news that the dats have opened for SW.

Also be sure to download DINg to your desktop! You will be dinged the minute they open the bookings.

aljsmom - you most likely got the best deal out there for airfare and transportation! You are definitely covered and insured that they will get you on that boat!

Kidsclubs - yes, they are included in your cruise fare for your kids. When my duaghter was under 3 for our cruise, we only paid port charges for her to cruise! But that was because she wasn't accessing any clubs.

Flounder's Reef Bursery, for those under 3 and not potty trained, is about $6.50 an hour with a two hour minimum per booking. I don't know if it's gone up or not.

TIPS: NOTE: Make sure you all have seen the posts about the new tipping guidelines that will be going into affect!

Now to our pic of the day - I am going to move us onto a sea day:

This is for our tweeners - Ocean's Quest!



And for the adults - This is definitely out after the airfare for us this trip, though!:
The Spa Villas

Shoot - I knew I would forget something.

Passporter is an excellent guide book. You can find most of the info right here at the DIS and get more too, but it's handy to have it along with you and at hand for reference.

I don't use it, but wish I did on the last cruise. I couldn't remember half the stuff people had told me five months earlier.

I do receive their e-mails, though.

I actually prefer Birnbaums for the pictures But their info is not as complete as the Passporter's. The editors are DIS members too!

Maybe others of the veteran cruisers can chime in here with answers to these questions - hint, hint.........

Roll Call

I think we need to do a roll call to ensure that the same people are still booked onto the cruise as are listed on the front page.

please check in, even if it's just a wave and a hi!

I am getting very self contientious about being the only poster here.



castlegazer: we are going!

Thanks Guys. Just making sure there were people out there!

More sea day activities:

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/188/4...b97838.jpg?v=0

You need to click on this one. I can't seem to make it appear, but it is worth it and seems to be fine for a link - no issues. the flickr tour for this guy is really good too, so see if you can go back to all his photos. They are very good.

Just awesome! We didn't take advantage of this enough last cruise. I plan to eat breakfast here in the morning and just sit sometimes - it was tough to do on your first cruise. But the thing I want to do more of this time, is to just stop, slow down and relax.

Ok - I have a lot of days to pass, so today's photo is down a corridor:



I had to show one more, though, from this web site - which is a good picture review of a guy's cruise, David Stauffer - which can be found at: www.davidstauffer.com/caribbean2007/index.php

Check out what he did with a setting on his camera he called, the color accent mode:



Now that is a cool picture of a very uncool event for every cruise!

Does anyone know how to do this? I have a Cannon, and I don't know if I can do this or not, but I am sure to go check it out.

Was anyone else at the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra's concert Saturday night of Disney music?

I realized, too late as I was already there, that that would have been a good meet to do. It's always a good time, free, and the kids can run around and see Mickey Mouse too (or a mild representation thereof)!

Is it April 18th yet??

Just needed to "pipe in" and say that I WISH it was next April and I was getting ready to board the ship!

Can anyone make the next 275 days go by faster????

(I guess I need a vacation!)

No, but I did notice that the stores were hauling out the Halloween stuff into the aisles recently - never been so happy to see retailers rushing the season before.

After Halloween comes Thanksgiving after Thanksgiving comes Christmas after Christmas comes Spring!!!!!!!! with a lot of stuff inbetween unfortunately
