One of my two favorite parts of the Christmas parade - the funny snowmen


My second favorite part of the Christmas parade - the gingerbread men (their backs are flat like they were just scraped off the cookie sheet!)


And we can't forget the toy soldiers...
I love Disneyland at Christmas! That tree is AMAZING!
We were there for the Christmas parade a few years ago, loved it!
I think if we lived closeby we'd spend Christmas at Disneyland LOL

LOL - still us! I don't know if anyone else is around yet, but it hasn't seemed so. Our baby girl is due in 15 day so I may become less responsive for a while - but Ryan and I are DEFINITELY still here!

How was your holiday? I hope it was a good one!

I thought maybe your little girl had decided to make an early appearance

Our Christmas was great, Christmas lunch at our place and an afternoon around the pool.
We're expecting 32 degrees (celsius) for new years eve which converts to 89 farenheight, so another party around the pool here

Hope you're feeling well, make sure you're getting all the rest you can right now, when she gets here you'll get very little.

LOL - nope, no Lorelai yet!

Your Christmas sounds like it was lovely! I've been sick for a solid week and a half now, so I was sick over Christmas. And now, Ryan is sick too . . . ugh! I was feeling a little better yesterday, but a little icky again today. Don't really know what's going to happen, I'm just hoping to get better soon because she could come any day now!

Your weather sounds lovely! Christmas day it was about 80F here too, but there was no poolside lounging for us. That's OK though, it was still a nice day with family...even though I was kind of out of commission most of the day. But still, it was nice.

I'm trying to rest. Being sick I guess I've been doing nothing but resting. Unfortunately, it's hard to actually sleep because I can't lay down without coughing and choking. I guess that the non-sleeping rest is still good too though. Ryan keeps telling me I'll be able to sleep better when she's here . . . little does he know! I'm trying to keep the lack of sleep portion of her coming a secret...don't want him to freak out too early!

Welcome!

As a past travel agent I can tell you that Disney does not allow discounted rates on their sailings, so every travel agency should have the same price as Disney Cruise Line directly. For instance, if I were to sell a Carnival cruise to you I could take part of my commission and put it towards your sailing to give you a discount and come in under Carnival's quoted price. Disney does not allow this discounting, and thus, pretty much everyone will have the exact same price for Disney as Disney themselves.

There is 1 exception and that is if a travel agency held "group space" on this sailing. If so, they can sell those cabins at the rate they held them at whether Disney's prices have gone up or not. Only thing is, you never know if a travel agency has a group held on a particular sailing, and often times when they do it's specifically for a pre-set group (like a large wedding group or something). If an agency has group space with availability they can sell it to you, but it's not likely. A long time ago Sam's Club Travel would book groups on just about EVERYTHING and make it so they could come in cheaper, but I know they stopped that several years ago. Now they book the rates just as anyone else does. With that said, any other promotion Disney has on any sailing (i.e. the "best available" rate or a "kids sail free" rate, etc.) will be the same whether you book through a travel agency or the cruise line directly. Personally, when it comes to Disney my husband and I always book directly with the cruise line.

Good luck in searching for your best rate. We hope you join us on this sailing, it's going to be a blast!

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me such an informative answer! I think my son has decided he wants to be home for Halloween so we'll probably look at doing the cruise the second week of November. Hope you all have an awesome time!

Booked this cruise while on board the Dream 2 weeks ago (already 2 weeks have gone by ) The Dream was an amazing ship but its so expensive to fly across the US just to cruise her. It will just be me and dd4. We will probably do 3-4 days in DL prior to the cruise. Fingers are crossed that she will reach the 40" ride mark by then (10 months to grow 3" ).

Been reading the posts and not seeing many check-ins yet...hopefully that will change as time grows closer.

Hi everybody, it seems our trip just gets bigger and bigger, now DH wants to add a stopover in Honolulu, i'll have to see how our budget goes for that.

DS6 is onto us I think, we've tried to keep this a surprise but I think he knows, we'll continue to play dumb LOL

We're saving our pennies crazily! 9 months to go!
