Good luck calling Gail! I think the cruise will be a nice treat for you and your DH especially with being parents of the groom!

We did Vero before our December 2004 cruise and enjoyed it. A nice easy ride to the port that morning. I can see where it would also be a nice relaxing stay after the cruise to continue the cruise feeling. Vero is nice and laid back.






PDFG and all our friends who need it.

The $95 booking fee that DVC normally charges for trades and cruises is waived on the initial booking day but will be charged for any changes made after the inital booking.
Excellent thanks! Most likely, I will be using cash for the cruise ans saving my points for another trip.

Right now we are wishing for the cold, the temp here has been in the high nineties for the past month and I'm tired of it.

I hope we here on the west coast will be able to get through on Sunday morning.

Ok! I have a question.

I want to do the cruise I am all excited but this afternoon my boss called me in his office and told me today was my last day.

If I make my reservations on Sunday but I to have to borrow some. Will I lose them if I have to cancel? That is my only fear. But yet I donít want to cancel.

Thanks
Flo

the way I understand it, once the reservation is made and then cancelled, you would need to pay 95 dollars for a reservation change and the points can still be used for anything in the current use year except DVC resorts.
I hope this is right, but you should still check with a DVC CM.

My wife was just laid off last week, but we are going to try to reserve with the hope that a new job will come along before then.

good luck.

So sorry to hear that. I've been through layoffs twice.

I'm not sure if you will be charged the $95 fee for the cancellation or not. I do know that the points will become cancellation points which mean they can't be used for DVC.

As suggested I would call Member Services before Sunday to find out all the details for sure.

Good luck in finding a new job.

Everyone is right. We would not loose the points they woud not be able to stay at a DVC resort with them. Witch is not to bad. We could stay at the Animal Kingdom lodge just not the DVC part.

rbcheek: That is what I am going to do to. Think positive. Things happen for a reason.

I'm going to try for the same stateroom as this past cruise. I hope I get through right away as I'm supposed to work 10-2 Sun.

Did MS say you can book AKL as part of the Disney Collection? I thought it was removed when the villas opened in July 2007. AKL is not on the 2008 or 2009 Disney Collection point charts.

No, but they said that the DVC resorts only (total of 6) are the ones that can not be booked. I asked about hotels on property and they said that is fine. When I call in on Sunday I will make sure. Thanks

You can't book using points any of the WDW Resorts that have a DVC component.
