I love that. Yahooooooo
But wait again. Do you get your boarding number then or how does one obtain that thing?

thanks for taking the time to clear this up for me

Yes, everything is given to you at the desk at the hotel. Your key to the world card you get when you first check into the hotel has your room key, to the hotel and ship, your tickets to the parks, your charge card, boarding pass and safe key all programed inside that thing. I dunno how, but it is great. So yes, your kttwc is your boarding pass. This is what you show them when you board the ship. Hope this helps. And yes, we had a lot of fun. Thanks ya'll for reading along!!! Ill be happy to answer any more questions as they come.

Loved your trip report... I'm with you. I enjoyed my two 4-day trips so much I'm now booked for a 7-Day And it's a double dip so I'm very excited!!!

Mindy327 - When you do the land and sea you don't actually need a "boarding number". You normally get picked up at your resort around noonish and it's 1-1:30 by the time you get to the ship. By that time, you don't really need a boarding number as the early birds have all boarded (Disney is efficient on getting everyone on board). You can just usually walk right through the terminal over to the Mickey ears (unless you need to check your children in for the kids' clubs).

I opened up my trip report thread and now I am wiping away a tear! I wanna go back! I am really honestly depressed, I think I have the post DCL blues everyone talks about getting. Anyhow, thanks everyone, hope you enjoyed coming along for the trip!

Hi, I loved your report. We missed the graduation. I'm not sure why we weren't told about it... oh well. I was wondering what you had in your fish extender. Were these gifts for someone, or just goodies for your family.

The graduation was not ever announced to be a big thing! In fact, if I hadnt looked at the navigator that day, I would have never known there was a graduation. It was cute though, and glad we were able to go. The fish extender goodies were actually from our dis board friends we met, and we did a secret santa like gift exchange. The goodies inside were from them on one day. We had goodies each day we came back to our room. Our friends we met on the boards were great. I still talk to a good friend by email, her daughter and mine were cruise buddies so to speak.

LOVED your TR! Was it hard to add a extra "land" day? Do you just call and have it added? This is just what we want to do. Thanks for sharing, it was fun to read.

The extra day is VERY easy to add. You must let your TA know or DCL that you would like to add additional days to your package. It is more of an extra day at the hotel. You only get the original days of park hoppers though. So when we got to the hotel we had a day to relax. Or go to the parks when you get there and opt out of parks on sunday before the bus leaves. Either way, it is a blast. Thanks for following along.

I really enjoyed reading this one again. It was very entertaining. I found the Toy Story show to be wonderful as well. Great family.

I know exactly what you mean - we took my DS for his first trip to Disney World in April and he cried and cried when we left. He talks all the time about going back and, when I finally booked yesterday for our next trip, he was just so excited.

What he doesn't know is that we have also booked a 3 day Disney Cruise for us all too - we plan not to tell them and pretend we're going to Kennedy Space Centre
