I might be joining you! Looks like we're the only 2 here so far!
Pretty sure we'll be doing this cruise next year. I may be booking it soon, and then checking to see if we'd save $ rebooking while we're on the Dream this August.
Have you already booked?

Yes, I've been booked for a LOOOOOONG time.

My sister and I wanted to sail 7 nights to the Caribbean over the summer. We rebooked onboard in 2009. Well, 2010, the Magic moved to Europe. And then it did it again in 2011.

FINALLY - 7 night Caribbean sailings in August for 2012! LOL!!!!!

So glad to see more people booking!

I was just discussing with my wife what we're going to do the night before.

She seems to be under the impression that my daughter, and I quote: "needs" a day at Walt Disney World before the cruise.

Anyway, hello kclrmcd and AirTita. I'm Dan.

Question Just wondering.....

While it seems a little bizarre to be thinking so far in advance...since we're coming in from California....we're thinking of doing the parks as well. Question...should we do it before the cruise or after?
DS was at Disneyworld when he was 3 so he doesn't remember much.
We have annual passes at DL so he knows the rides.
Any ideas, suggestions, etc? We will be traveling with friends on the cruise and I'm sure we'll try to coordinate with them as well.
Also....how far in advance should I start looking at airfare, etc?

Hi Jana!

The popular opinion on the DIS seems to be to vacation at Walt Disney World first, then cruise. The logic makes sense. You run yourself silly at the parks - and then have three lovely at-sea days to decompress.

I think you'll probably want to visit Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Those are definitely different from anything offered in Disneyland. Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom is FAR better than the one in DL - but almost everything else is better at DL in terms of the Magic Kingdom.

Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios beats out the one at California Adventure.

I don't know much about the legacy carriers. But I know that with Southwest and jetBlue, you want to book ASAP. Watch their sites and book as soon as fares for your dates are released. If your departure date is released before your return date - book the departure. Then confirm the return once those are released.

You won't be able to book the Disney World portion until about August of this year. While there's no guarantee as to what the package offerings will be, you may want to poke around www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com and look at the package and ticket offerings. Familiarize yourself with them so that when the time comes, you'll have an idea of what you want. If you aren't sure about the resorts - take a look at www.wdwinfo.com and check out the resorts section. My favorite value resort is Pop Century. My favorite moderate resort is Caribbean Beach. And my favorite deluxe resort is a tie between the Beach Club and Contemporary. For you, I'd recommend the Beach Club - since it's closer to Epcot. As I said - you'll probably want less of the Magic Kingdom and more of Epcot. The Beach Club is great for that. If you have any questions or need any help, just let me know!

Thanks SS

Thank you for the Park info!
I think you are right....Epcot and Animal Kingdom! MGM Studios will also be on the list for the DS!
We will also be doing the Universal Harry Potter park as well.
Before the cruise sounds good. DH suggested the same thing and I know I would love to decompress after the parks with a long cool adult beverage!
Will put alerts on my calender to start checking flights. I think it's about a year in advance we can start booking so I'll start looking in August.
Thanks again!!
