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.....
Lori spill it... what info did you find out? I have a white wall veranda, is mine smaller as well? I'd love to have a clear but I really don't want to upgrade at this point and I really like being right next to the deck I think we can all use to drink at night. and breakfast upstairs. You know there is a pretty good picture of back of the boat and the verandas on Disney under, I think, Caribbean cruises... or maybe just ships, Magic. It's the other side but we can see the opposite state rooms

I'm waiting to decide on what I'm doing before the cruise until after everyone else decides.

Then they would let weeks go by and I would forget so someone else would say "Alex is doing this" and I would say "who's Alex?" So it got so bad that when anyone at all would refer to Alex I would say "WHO'S ALEX!!!" hahahaha)
What fun! You guys are certainly a silly bunch which sounds good to us because we like to be silly too!

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!!
Once it gets closer we will know how many days early we are going and if we are going to do parks or not with this vacation.

Even if we don't do parks we will probably stay at Disney. We like to start our vacation out with staying on property to get into the magical spirit of it all. Kids like to swim (if it's warm enough) and just knowing they are at Disney is a treat. We sometimes also will want to do a character meal at a resort so we kick off in Disney style without having to pay for a park.

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!!
Sue I am with ya! We are from NY State and we would love to not have to always fly in a day early but we feel there is no way around it. In fact like you were saying I really feel worried unless I know I have a few days leeway.

Last May we flew to Vegas in beautiful weather but the flight had a problem and we almost didn't make it out. We had to change to a different flight and we were lucky to get the spots we did. We kept saying phew! Thank god it wasn't a cruise! Getting to Vegas a few hours later wasn't a big deal but with a cruise it is too stressful.

Add in our weather and there is no way we can chance it! Anyway we think it is a good excuse to add some days on to our vacation.

I looked up the stateroom reviews online somewhere and then I checked the diagram in my Passporter...

white wall verandas still open 7632 &7634


Here's what I found:

"Some people do not like them as while sitting down you can't see through them. In order to really look out over the ocean you have to stand up. As an adult, I actually don't mind them as they tend to be a bit deeper than regular veranda."




I'm thinking I Jeff may want to upgrade as he liked sitting out watching the ocean but if he doesn't mind we'll probably stay where we are... I'm now wishing I would have gotten 7618.

Is 7618 not available anymore?

Jackie-
According to the Passporter diagram, your room's verandah looks the same as all the others, but the room next you (which is the room we got, but on the other side) is smaller due to the shape of the front of the ship.

I'm going to ask about 7634 though!
