Agreed Jeff. Sea Day- which is Wednesday (day 4).

And I think we can make a plan- meet for breakfast in whichever Dining Room is open and xx:xx time and then wait for the Podcast Team to unveil their plans for us. We cannot make breakfast reservations anyway- so we can be pretty flexible on this- even up to the last minute.

I'd go with Nassau day as a back-up plan in case the Team has a particularly early event planned. That's Tuesday.

Jeff- are all the dining room open for breakfast every day- or do they rotate who serves breakfast?

When do you think it will be likely we'll see a Dis "schedule of events"? Just curious, I don't have any pressing need to know...
Thanks.

FYI, on the last page, the dates of the cruise are listed as "June 24 - June 25, 2012"...a little short for a cruise, I think

With the Dreams Transfers is there any way that the pick up resort and the drop off resort can be two different resorts? We are staying at one DVC resort pre cruise and another one post cruise. I understand if it can't be done, but it doesn't hurt to ask! Thanks.

Thanks, John.
Can't believe we're less than 3 months from sailing!

No - sorry - it has to be a roundtrip from/to same resort.

Cool, I registered for my credentials.

I have a question regarding transfers if anyone knows.

Does DCL do the transfers for dreams or is it a 3rd party? If so, is there any benefit to booking with DCL instead? (does DCL handle the bags off the bus sorta like magical express?)

Thanks all

The transfers you are booking on the form linked to in the OP are a private charter Dreams Unlimited Travel is hiring just for our guests. This is a separate company from the one Disney uses and not affiliated with DCL.

We are just looking to offer a cheaper alternative to DCL transfers for Podcast listeners.

John,

I just sent you an email about a ColdFusion error I am getting when trying to book a pre-cruise night at the Swan.

Thanks for the reply John! I see now that there is a significant savings when traveling in both directions. We plan on renting a car at port for our post cruise vacation. So when I compared prices I noticed it was the same cost for the transfer at $35.

So I guess my same question still stands. Is there a benifit for a first time cruiser to ride with Disney? Do they play a video like on ME? The baggage part would be a benifit but I can't seem to find out if they handle your bags like they do with ME. Seems like they do when you take the transfer from the airport.

DCL buses do play the video (like on Magical Express- but cruise related ).

But on the post-cruise leg, you have to get your own bags. This is because we all have to go through US Customs when we get back to port. You have to be together with your bags when you pass through customs.
You then take your bags out to the buses- they are marked as to which resorts they are going to- just like when you leave a park to get back to your resort.

Personally, I like using the transfers Dreams sets up- this way you are traveling with DISers who just had the same experiences you did!

Hope that helps.

bummer that we already included our transfers from DCL, but we also are gong to 2 different resorts as well, one at pick up, the other at drop off, but I did register for our credentials just now!

Linda, Love this idea... I am there!
