Checking back in gang - sorry I've been away. Life does that to my board surfing!

I've been in Denver all week on business. The mountains taunt me - I can see them, but have not been able to get into them. Such a sad existence huh?!

However, I did book our flights to and from our cruise, so that's resolved. We went ahead and used frequent flier miles so our cost is a grand total of $10!! Although I am not sure about baggage fees - we may have some of that in December, but last fall we did a 10 day cruise and only checked one bag, so a 7 day cruise should be a piece of cake!

Looks like in crunching numbers, we are going to go visit Harry Potter this trip. Two days at Universal and one day at Disney was way cheaper than three days in the Disney parks, so the compromise is to have 1 day on Disney property. If there are no special events with the cruise, we'll probably do EPCOT Friday night since that's our favorite park.

The time is nearing - kind of fun to start looking forward!

I'm waiting for the dates for MVMCP at Disney, so a meet for that can be organized.

Will organize a 'Drink around the World' at EPCOT, probably first or second day we get back from cruise..

What's been organized will be posted on the other thread.

[Hint, hint. Everone, if you are organizing something, let me know.]

I'm pretty sure I'll fly home the same day the cruise ends, but hope to arrive in Orlando between Nov. 28 and Dec. 1.

DD's college isn't finished with exams until Dec 6, so we have to do WDW after the cruise.

As it stands now, we won't have any time before or after the cruise....however we are planning to fly down on Friday, so I could organize a pre-cruise breakfast (probably at Fresh)...as it gets closer, I will start a post and see how much interest I can drum up.

Good morning! My countdown to our Fantasy cruise will be by months - at least until it gets closer. However, I'll fly to Orlando 3 weeks from today!

Oh, lucky you......I've been giving thought all day....for what it's costing me to take my DGD on the cruise with me, I could take the whole family to WDW for 8 days......oh good grief.....get these thoughts out of my head...I REALLY want to go on the cruise

It IS difficult to look at things that way isn't it Cheri?

I was contacted by a travel club (I call it a time share - they like to call ita club!). First the guy told me Disney owns most of the cruising companies, to which I laughed off - he has no idea what he's talking about...and then tried to convince me he could get me extraordinary fares on cruises. Sure - cruises no one is booking or wants to go on!

That said - I put him to the test to see what he could do for this cruise in particular. I beat his price by $300 PER PERSON! So, I felt pretty good with my rate given how booking early with DCL really can make a big difference (on board discounts certainly help too - lesson learned - always book the least expensive dummy date on board and ride the savings once you know where you want to go!).
