Thanks for the offer Deb, but we didn't want to make any dinner plans yet cuz we're not sure how long we'll be at KSC.

I noticed that I wrote we're staying at Comfort Inn & Suites. Wrong, it's Country Inn & Suites.

I was hoping for encouragement from folks who have done that.

Deb, Cheri will be in WDW with us pre-cruise.

Thanks for the update Jackie.


Peg and Jose plan to arrive on Thursday and stay at the Hyatt Thu and Fri night, so Jose can have a day to sleep BEFORE his vacation starts! Peg will read books, maybe swim and shop until the rest of the crew arrives Friday afternoon/evening. Peg & Jose are doing Kenedy Space Center after the cruise, then heading to WDW for a few days after that. I (they) don't know where they are staying Sat in CocoaBeach/PC yet. I just mentioned to her yesterday that she may want to look at reserving a car also...I hear those rates are going up.

I had planned to go back to the Hyatt the night before the cruise, as I thought Peg would want the family there together for dinner that night and the commute to the ship. But she just said that wasn't necessary, so I can stay and play at WDW all day Friday! (We haven't decided where we are putting Dianne that night!)

This means we could organize some kind of group transport from WDW to PC Saturday AM. I'll check out some of the limo options. I'm pretty sure there were at least 15 of us in the Hummerzine last May and we had a van follow behind with the luggage. I know my share wasn't any MORE than DCL and probably less and it was WAY more fun! I've also done the above mentioned* BUS. My cruise-mate hired an entire bus for us to go from SSR to PC and then from PC to MCO. We only had about 22 people and our share was $30 each way...would be less with a bigger group (the bus probably holds 50-60). I'll try and get contact info from her. Anyway...stuff to think about.

What kind of rate did you get? I was wondering about staying there the night before. Do do you know if they allow parking during the cruise?

Deb, also what kind of rate did you get for your ocean side place? I want to share this info with Peg as they'll need a place for the night after the cruise.

I sent off the e-mail asking about the bus.

The hotel is on the oceanfront. I just have a regular room....but they usually try to get me an oceanfront room if available. I'm paying $99 for Thurs and $117 for Fri night. Here's their info if Peg is interested:

Holiday Inn
COCOA BEACH-OCEANFRONT

That's why I wanted to know if after a cruise or after WDW. If after a cruise, the flight should be in the afternoon.

It will probably be on SWA, or so I think. I may end up on AA, and pay for the baggage. The plus side of AA is that they fly out of O'Hare which is 13 miles away and therefore a much cheaper cab ride.

SW is out of Midway, which would be at least a $60 cab ride.

I have to consider how we will get to and from the airport.

We should easily be able to make a noon flight. We have usually been off the ship by 9AM in Florida.

Happy "President's Day" everyone. I'm off today, but not because we are closed...it's one of my unpaid 'furlough' days. Hope to get some chores done as I've done nothing but play all weekend. We'll see............
done!

We got the AAA rate which was $125 for 2 queens or 1 king which is $14 less than the rack rate of $139/nt. I wanted to go through Hotwire but i was worried I wouldn't get this hotel. So I went and booked it through the hotel instead. They do have a cruise & park rate which is posted below.
