April 18, 2010 - 4 night Wonder

We just booked the 4 night Wonder cruise leaving April 18, 2010. This will be our 9th Disney cruise and 5th on the Wonder. We figured it was probably our last chance to sail on the Wonder, without having to fly to California.

Anyone with us?

Hello and Welcome Aboard!!

Since this is your first Disney cruise, I would suggest going through all of the info in the FAQ sticky at the top of the main cruise forum. There is a lot of really good info there. If you have any questions, ask away.

Fish Extenders

Well Disfolks I now know what a fish extender is and I will be making one for our trip. But I am not sure what I put in other fish extenders. Please help. My little grandson 3, will be on the cruise so tell me what to bring to put in and he will have a good time doing this.

Unless we have a lot more people sign on to this thread for the cruise, I don't think you'll be doing much with fish extenders. That idea only works when quite a few cabins are doing it, and so far this thread has been really quiet. We've never participated on any of our cruises, so I'm not much help on what to bring for others. You might have better luck posting that question on the main forum. I'm sure you will get a lot of good ideas over there.

Welcome Aboard!!

What did you decide to do about flying in the day before? I know it adds to the expense of the trip, but we think the peace of mind is worth it. One added benefit to flying in the day before is that you are much more rested when you board the ship. No hustling around early that morning trying to get to the airport, dealing with luggage, getting to the port, etc. We have stayed at the airport Hyatt and at the Radisson near the port and really prefer to try to get in early enough to drive to the port and stay there. I think for this trip we're going to stay at the Residence Inn at the port. We usually fly in late afternoon/early evening, drive to the port, go for a swim and have a relaxing dinner.

Either way I'm sure you will have a great cruise!

Thanks for the warm welcome and for your suggestions! My plan is to fly in at least the night before. Flying in the day of is off the table! I'm anxiously awaiting JetBlue's April fares. We will spend a few days in Orlando either before or after the cruise, dependant upon when I can get good/less expensive flights. We are thinking positive that our plans will come together nicely and within budget!!

I don't know where you are in MA, but if you are in a reasonable driving distance to either Manchester, NH or Providence, RI you might want to keep an eye on Southwest's prices. This past April, I rode in the Budget rental shuttle from their office to the port with a man who lives in Marlborough, MA and he drove to Hartford, CT because the prices were better. I don't remember which airline he flew on, but I am considering that for this upcoming trip as well. It takes us about an hour and 30 - 45 minutes to get to Providence and about the same to get to Hartford.

Thanks for the welcome, we are waiting to find out if William can get the week off from work next April. He just started a new job, so he isn't sure about vacation time, and our daughter would really like for him to go.

I went ahead and booked this cruise, still waiting to hear from William about his work situation, but I wanted to at least get the cruise booked to make sure we have a cabin. Changed reservation from a category 9 to a category 10.

Glad to have you aboard! Booking was probably a good idea...... at least you guarantee the price (since it usually goes up as time goes on) and space for your traveling party. It's very simple to remove someone from a reservation (prior to the paid in full date) but sometimes it is impossible to add someone close to the sailing date.

If all goes according to plan, my family will be joining you on this WONDERful cruise next April to celebrate my 55th birthday the day (4/20) we dock at Castaway Cay!!! I can't think of a better place to spend my birthday.

I had a total knee replacement done this past June 4th and will be heading back to work shortly. As far as no other major problems arise over the next few months, my family is looking forward to joining you on the Wonder.

This will be our first DCL sailing on the Wonder.

Our sailing party will be me(Andy), DW(Hazel) DD(Angelina) DD's "soon to be fiance"(Bryan). This will be Bryan's "first ever cruise" and he is really excited about it.
