yeah i have been to Nassau on all of my other cruises and don't really want to get off the ship but i figured i would go to the straw market and a couple of shops. yeah you loose track of time when you are snorkeling and when you are on CC. What seating did yall ask for on the ship we are doing 2nd since that is what i did last time and it was nice to see the show and then go to dinner.

We picked the first dinner seating. I figured we'd eat early and save room for the buffets later on, especially on Pirate night Too bad we didn't pick the same one, they probably would've put us near each other since we're around the same age!

yeah it would have been nice to sit next to some one that wasn't a complete stranger. We are use to eating later so we picked the second one. We will probably bump into each other on the nassau day you never know.

Most likely we will. Especially if we both plan on hanging by the pool.
We're used to eating later too but I didn't want to miss out on any late buffets And I'd rather eat and then see the show when I'm nice and full!

well since its our honeymoon and a trip where we will do as much as we can we wont be missing the late buffets either even if we are full we will find a way to eat something. We may have to run 10 miles when we get back but we will be eating the buffets.

lol When we cruised on RCCL, we had the late dinner. We went to the gourmet buffet afterward one night and got food because everything looked SO good. But we couldn't eat it. We tried. It just wasn't happening.

we have had the late dinner on ever cruise i have ever been on and have always found a way to eat either the late buffets or room service. Also since we are on the dining plan while at the world and we have the registry so i know we will be eating A LOT OF FOOD! So of course i have subbed to a few of the food boards on here they are great. I found out that if we wear the honeymooners pin with cinderella and Prince charming on it you get free dessert which i think is nice of them. Now i am having to decide on which long houses @ the Poly to request I would love Hawaii but it is only concierge( wish we could afford that )

That's awesome! I love dessert When we went in January for my boyfriend's birthday, they gave him a free funnel cake cause they saw his pin. That's considered a dessert right? I work in a travel agency and I have access to the birnbaum guidebooks for Disney. It's been slow so I've been reading up on the cruise line and there's even a dining guide. My mouth is watering just reading about Ohana's!

Is there a big difference with the longhouses?

The views and a couple are really close to the TTC so you can catch the buses to the other parks or the monorail to epcot instead of taking the one from the poly to TTC and transfering and the views are diff. I would love to be in Tahiti or Tolekaeu (i think thats how you spell it) you can have a MK view and see the fireworks and there is a beach in front of Tahiti that most people don't know about that you can see the water parade and the fireworks from. and the rooms are a little bit bigger in the newer longhouses and they have double sinks. (thank you to Tikiman 2001's website)

I've heard about the water parade but I've never seen it. Have you?
Oh and since we were talking about Illuminations a few posts back, they're making updates to it for the Celebration promo next year. So now I'm going to have to see it again!

I haven't seen the water parade we have only stayed in one other resort where you could watch it (GF) and we didn't watch it. I have seen pictures of it and it looks good. We may stay and see illuminations but i think the day we go to epcot we are going to Planet Hollywood for dinner. I'm just glad we are getting new luggage from my mom for Christmas man did i need it (i over pack just a little bit) which means we will probably be paying an extra bag fee when we fly into orlando unless the smallest piece is small enough to be considered as a carry on.

I hope someone got me luggage for Christmas! I always borrow my sister's suitcase and I think it's starting to get on her nerves lol. All the stuff I own is weekend or overnight type of luggage! And I overpack too. Especially when I go on cruises

You should check out the T-Rex cafe when you go! We went on our last trip and it was yummy!!

I purposely asked for luggage this christmas b/c the set i have is only 3 pieces and the biggest one is not big enough for all of my stuff. I may over pack but we have never run out of clothes on any trips and if any of us get sick or are in pain i have what my DFi calls a small medicine cabinet in my luggage.
I even asked the lady with DCL when we made our reservations if they were sending us more than 2 luggage tags for the magical express since i have never done the magical express. Usually when we fly in we rent a car but i thought since we are doing the land and sea it would be nice to not have to worry about picking up our luggage.I would like to try the TRex place but we are on the dinning plan and i dont think it is on there.

Magical Express is great! I've used it twice and haven't had a problem with it. They show a cute little video on the bus, it's all the characters getting ready to "vacation" in WDW. I love it! The only gripe I've had with it is that they pick you up super early to take you back to the airport. For an 8pm flight, they picked us up at 4. We spent a lot of time sitting around the airport. But since you won't be taking it back, you don't have to worry about that.

I forgot TRex wasn't on the DDP. Maybe they'll add it by next year? Wishful thinking!!

i have seen the video on the DCL bus that will take us from the resort to Port Canaveral and it is all the characters getting ready for the cruise and i have found out from people that have been on the land and sea that the bus should pick us up at 11:30(well i know that is the time they pick up the people from the Poly but i assume it is the same from all the hotels) I know we aren't booking an early flight back i think we are gonna try and get a 4pm flight back home so we can eat breakfast on the ship b/c if you have a flight after 2pm you don't have to get off the ship til 9:30 instead of 7:30 or 8am. I'm glad we don't have to carry our luggage around the resort to get to the room they will put it in the rooms that will be nice (since i know ours will be heavy )
