THANK YOU THANK YOU for this tip! Got a room for Saturday April 3rd at $62.11, includes tax. Wow, what a great deal! With the $20 for parking/shuttle, we saved almost half the listed pricing! Yahoo!

Apparently, a Queen (or is it a double) bed, and a little alcove off the room for the kids in which there is either a bunk bed or a single bed (depending on what you need), and their own little tv. I found a photo of the single bed in the alcove, on line, but was hoping to see the bunk bed set up (can't find a photo anywhere).

I have a kids suite for Jan. 29th booked through Priceline (from this thread info!). When I called the hotel to ask about bed assignments, the clerk told me that it has a room with one queen bed and then another room with bunk beds and a twin size bed. The suite also comes with a dining area of table and chairs and, I think, a frig. I had originally booked a one room suite so this works out much better for my family of 4 + Gma that is traveling with us.

We stayed here before our last cruise in Feb. 2008 and can't wait to come back!

I'm echoing the previous posters but I just did Priceline for March 19 and got the same room I had booked earlier for $49 plus taxes instead of the $149 I had originally booked. We wanted this hotel so color me excited to have $100more to blow on excursions!

I am so happy and thanks to all of you for sharing another great tip!

Thanks for the tip. I booked three rooms on priceline for $51.00 each for April 2, 2010.

Since we are flying in the night before our cruise and would prefer not to rent a car, how is the best way to get to the hotel from the Orlando airport?

Just a heads up from my many years experience working in hotels.

If room reassignments need to be made last minute, priceline rooms will be the first to get reassigned. You may be originally booked in a kids suite but if on your check in day there is a guest willing to pay full rack rate for a kids suite odds are the priceline room will get what ever is available.

I am hoping for a kids suite but if that does not happen, I will still be happy with the rate I got.

Parking Rental car

Have you considered one way rentals? We always rent from Avis or Budget one way and get the free shuttle from the car rental agency. Drop the family off at the dock with all the luggage. Then while they're checking in you can return the car. Also rent one way for your day of debarkation, and they meet you at the dock. So many things could go wrong parking a rental at a hotel that I would avoid it if possible. I listed Avis discount codes below. Try them all, and you're bound to find a good rate. Sorry no codes for Budget.

Yay! I got it via priceline, but I did it through mypoints as well 3 points per dollar spent!! They said they couldn't book the shuttle now, but I shouldn't have a problem once I check in booking it!

What kind of breakfast options are at the hotel? We stayed at Radisson last year and weren't that impressed with it. We just want a nice breakfast before we get to the port as we like to get there as early as we can.

We are currently in our room at the hotel waiting to cruise in the morning! (using their free wireless internet.) What a deal for the Priceline rate. I would encourage everyone to do it if they have the chance.
