Hi, Stacey. I have a daughter going into 5th grade. She would love to be pen pals with your daughter(s). What a great idea! Feel free to PM me.

Hey! We've had this cruise booked for what seems like forever! We have two staterooms, I'll have to look up the numbers to join the fe. My ds18 and dd19 have an inside and dh, me, dd13 and her friend have an ocean view.
Just sent a request for the fb group. What are everyone's plans for the night before? We're driving and I need to book a hotel near the port.

Welcome! We aren't sure what we are doing the night before either. We will be driving down from Maryland. I would like to find a hotel where I can leave my car during the cruise and has a really nice pool for the kids to blow off all their energy after a 12 hour car ride. I would give up the parking for a great pool. Maybe a hotel even an hour or two north of the port to ease the drive down! Clearly I have some research to do!!

Country Inn and Suites located within site of the cruise terminals offers a cruise package that includes parking and transportation to and from the Disney Terminal. We have used it and find it to be nice and affordable.

Thanks for the info. Just went to their website and checked out both that place and the Radisson. My parents have stayed at the Radisson and said its nice with a great pool. About $50 more expensive though. Funny thing is, when I put in 4 kids the Radisson says no rooms available. However, if I put in 2 kids a room that should sleep 6 (2 kings and a full size pull-out sofa) is what comes up. Besides, I really only need the room to sleep 5 b/c the DS3 will sleep between DH and I.

We are staying at the Residence Inn. They also have a pkg for park/cruise and a shuttle to the pier. Getting excited for this cruise!!

We are headed to the holiday madness at Universal Studios. I know I am crazy for doing it but we are staying on property and will receive their version of the "fast pass" for the rides. Anyone else headed there?

Last year, if I remember correctly, the Radisson did not offer parking at their site.

We are going to Universal as well. Normally when we go to Disney we just stay on Disney property so we figured this is one of the only times we will be going to Unibversal. We are staying @ The Hard Rock.

We are in....This will be our first Disney cruise. My brother and his famiy have done a few but we usually do RCI. He asked us to join him so we are all in. All told it will be my parents, my brother and SIL and their 2 DD (8 and 5), DH and me and our 3 kids (DS 12, DS 10, and DD 8) as well as my parents' good friends and their children and grandchildren. It will be quite the crowd but it will be fun!!!

As soon as I get the cabin numbers, I plan to sign up for the fish extender. Am I too late?
