That's a good rate for the Coast Coal Harbour - how did you find it?

I haven't, but I've stayed at another hotel in that chain and it was comfy. We're looking at the Coast Plaza Hotel & Suites (which is a little further away) because they have a rate that includes parking for the week, but I'm still looking for a good deal (aren't we all! )

Unlike the Soarin over California ride, they will also have a preshow, so the whole thing is about 1/2 hour. I am so excited that a little bit of Disney magic, well magic they are using, is coming to my hometown!
hope it is ok to have the links here?
Thank you for providing the links. I've just added this to my list of things to do in Vancouver.

According to a comment on their FB page, online sales are beginning in June.

This has probably been asked before, but trawling through 100+ pages of this thread is proving very time consuming! What's the best way for two ladies (mid/late twenties) to get from Vancouver airport to the Ramada Downtown? We'll each have a large case and carry on. Woyld prefer comfort and an easy journey. Thanks!

Taxi for about $35 or so.

That's good to know
DH said we should get the sky train (we are heading to the Sutton Place Hotel) but I don't like the idea of taking the train, then walking to the hotel with all of our luggage after a 9 hour flight!
Is it a flat rate from the airport and are cabs easy to get curb side?

We went from the port to the airport and it was a metered rate. I would think cabs would be plentiful at the airport since they were at the port. We'll be doing a cab again in June from the port to our airport hotel since it's the easiest way.

Hi fellow cruiser

We are also just taking the taxi from the airport to our hotel downtown. If it's around $35 that still saves us $70 from what we would have paid for the Disney transfers to the port, had we gone that route and we're "used to" paying that. I'm leaning very heavily to just taking a taxi on the way home as well.

Did any of you experienced Vancouver travelers have any issues catching a taxi after getting off the ship and heading to the airport? I thought it would be quicker than waiting for a bus to fill up and it would save us about $70 for the 3 of us since Disney charges $35 per person each way.

Thanks,
Heather

Disney is only charging $25 pp each way in Vancouver, but still significant savings.
