Hey! I have a question, when you book through a TA (like me now!), who books Palo and stuff? You or the TA?

Also, Jen. I am having trouble logging in to the DU website...what the heck is my password/how do I find out what my password is?!?!??

Eoghan will be at Palo brunch too btw. And we're going to do the dinner since we missed it the last time!

To book any excursions or Palos ressie or anything like that, you go through DCL's site. I dont think your TA will have access to that.

They give you a password, or ask for one, when they book you. I actually signed up with a password when I got my first quote and they kept it the same throughout (which is good because I would forget it if they kept changing it! )

OK thats fine. I didnt know if we wanted this to be a ladies thing or what.

Our crazy night just got cancelled due to weather, so I have 5 minutes to check in and say hi. So, hi

Where is everyone planning to stay the night before the cruise? I think we're staying at the Residence Inn or Courtyard.
We are going to fly down on Wednesday and stay at WDW 'till Friday afternoon, maybe go to the parks for 2 days--where will depend on deals and how much money we have saved up. I'd love to surprise Dave with a savannah room at AKL.

I think our room (7520) is the only one with no stateroom report. The rooms near it got good ones though, so I think we should be OK.

I think my 5 minutes are up--I promised to make pizza and the dough is ready.

TTFN!!

Hi! I am not sure what I am going to do. I usually (well, the first cruise) come in the night before and spend the night at Port Canaveral but I would have to take off work on Friday AND the airfares are cheaper on Saturday. I hate cutting it close like that ESPECIALLY in January! We usually get our winter weather then. Plus, I hate to fly. I am still not sure if we are going to drive or fly down there. I want to drive but mom hates driving and thinks Victoria wont be able to handle a 12 hour hard drive. I think she is just trying to find an excuse to fly again. In Sept when I flew, I was TERRIFIED! I dont see how anyone couldnt being that high off the ground. UNNATURAL!! Anyway, that is not what you asked. There goes that rabbit again!

if we drive, or if we fly in the night before, I was thinking of staying at WDW. More than likely they will have some kind of discount code for that time of year. It will probably run the same amount as icky Radisson. Then it is just a 45 minute drive to the port.

I don't know what we're going to do yet either....still have to decide if we want to fly in the night before, we would probably just stay at the Hyatt at the airport and then take DCL transport to the port. But we don't want to have to deal with our luggage, so maybe we'll just fly in that morning...I'll have to do more research and think about it. Thank goodness we have plenty of time!

You are more brave than I am! I am SO paranoid about missing a flight because of snow. On our last DCL trip we alomst didn't make it out. We were on the last flight before the airport closed down. No other flights would have been available and we would have missed the cruise. We flew on a Wednesday (? or Thursday), but it was the week before Feb vacation, which is a HUGE factor around here--everyone who can evacuates to warmer climates in February, lol.
Dave and I are also lucky with schedule flexibility, so we take advantage of it on occasion.
I can't believe I am thinking about details when the cruise is still over a year away. I am definitely a planaholic!!

Hey I am too!!! Dammit.

Well now that you mention it, though the chances of a major snow storm are not great for early January, it is a possibility I suppose...I will look into flying in the night before perhaps. But I really don't want to take another vacation day....I guess it would be better than missing the cruise! Ack! (and EEK!)

Jen-I'm not sure about restaurants at the Hyatt..I will look into it!

So, I'm thinking I want to change our stateroom! I found out our verandah is smaller than others! I have e-mailed Kelsie already, so hopefully she can help me. We may even upgrade to the clear wall verandah if we have to.....

Oh hey! Jen, are we still linked to you even though we're with DU now? Would that have stayed the same? I want to make sure we're eating together!

How exactly did you link to my reservation? It would explain if you would still be connected or not.
