Castaway Cay - Oh my don't tell my DD's about that stingray incident - they won't go. We had a bad experience in Grand Caymen a few years back and they aren't too keen so the whole stingray thing, but I want to go. They want to parasail - I just ahve to figure out if they can go together - being 17 and 11 without an adult.

Does anyone know if a regular printer will print out the cruise magnet graphics Ok?We have a photo printer but the refills cost 75.00. If I buy just a 50.00 printer the refillls are only 40.00 total. Plus our photo printer hasn't worked well since we found the little pair of fiskars stuck in it.

I printer all of our magnets out on our home printer. I didn't use magnetic paper though, I printed them off on cardstock, then laminated them and added peel and stick magnets. But anyway, yes, most people either print them at home or put them on a disk and take it to the UPS store or an office store to be printed.

Does anyone know if you have to rent Disney snorkel/mask to swim in the lagoon part on castaway cay or can you bring your own? Can we still snorkel without the vest?

Thanks

You can bring your own, but I do believe the vests are required (and free).

Thanks! We have our own mask & snorkels and would rather use those. Good to know about the vest.

Well, yesterday it just "hit" me.... you know that feeling you get when you plan a big vacay and suddenly it's real??? Yup, that was me yesterday. I've been printing off personalized magnets from the DIS, looking into all sorts of things. For the next 5 months I'm going to be impossible to live with!!!

And we decided to keep the cruise a secret from our DD8, Ally. She knows I booked it, but has no idea when. I want to order her the Minnie plush in cruise outfit - anyone know where to get that? We collect the little Minnies - she gets one every time we go to WDW - and now we're starting to pick up the ones from countries in WS. So I'd love to have this to give her as we pull into the port.......

So is anyone else doing the 4 day cruise then 3 days at WDW? As FL residents, we may put together our own package. Not sure yet..... We spend a lot of time down there already - heading down next weekend for a mother/daughter weekend, then there for a long weekend in December to see the lights......

We'll be staying in Orlando after the cruise until Sunday. Watching to see if Disney is going to have any deals or not. Right now we're booked offsite and planning Universal Studios and Sea World.

Questions???

dthogue - can you tell us about your bad experience with stingrays? Don't see much point in this excursion if it's going to be a scary one!

FLAngie - what are APs?

Karajeboo - how I do envy the FL residents - I'm from Chicago so this trip is quite pricey for me. Can't imagine how people can afford to do it as often as I see on this site.

I think Disney's excursion is very tame - we did Stingray City in Grand Cayman - your take a boat out to a sand bar while wild stringrays gather - you get off the boat and into the water to feed and hold the stingray's. Unfortunately we had high wind and rough seas the day we went. When we got off the boat, my DD's had trouble standing and the stingrays kept brushing up against them and they freaked out. My DH is not a strong swimmer so he was not able to help with the girls - it was enough for him to stay above water. It was just bad circumstances for us - nothing to blame the tour operator or the stingrays for, but it has left a bad taste in my DD's minds whenever I mention stingrays no matter how hard I try to convince them to try Disney's excursion, which is in shallow water - I even tried showing them pictures, but they have no desire to even try - can you sy stubborn!!!

We are flying in on Saturday and will do MK that day and spend the night at Pop Century. I have arranged for a towncar to take us to the port on Sunday morning and return us to Pop Century on Thursday. We will be flying home on Sunday. Keeping my fingers crossed for a decent rate - right now the values are like $150.00 a night Hoping for something under $100.00

I was also thinking of Universal for 3 days or Discovery Cove and Sea World, but DD's decided on WDW.
