Finally jumping in.

Hi everyone. We booked this cruise a while ago but weren't certain until we recently booked our air that we were actually going to go. Very excited now to have this to look forward to. We're coming in on Friday the 22'd and always rent from Hertz at the airport , they're right in front of the Country Inns and Suites and they're good about dropping my husband off the morning of the cruise. He drops us off first then goes to return the car and they bring him over.
This will be our first cruise as platinum so very excited to get early boarding, free Palo and extra gifts. Also our first time flying Southwest so any tips there would be appreciated. I did purchase the earlybird to try to get an early boarding position. It would be a bummer if the three of us couldn't sit together.
We're staying the weekend after at Disney so doing Easter at Disney for the first time too. Should be awesome! Look forward to meeting you all, we've made some nice friends over the years on past cruises!.

to the crew! Another surprised kid. I'm not good at keeping secrets. The kids even know when opening day is. I have had to arrange for them to be picked up for school in the past so I could be on the phone to make our 2008 EBPC reservations.

My DD and I are also staying the weekend after the cruise doing Easter at WDW. I would be on except I'm not looking forward to the crowds. The price you pay for going during holidays/school breaks. We're excited since we did get ressies at the new Be Our Guest restaurant on Easter and we will be trying the same restaurant for counter service the day before the cruise to see how it compares.

I just saw on the Disney Parade that they have counter service there for lunch. Excited because that means that we have a chance to see the inside! We don't do table service at the parks. Prefer to play it by ear and take advantage of down times when they appear.

For others looking for flights...We found inexpensive flights on Allegiant flying into Sanford/Orlando. They are a NO FRILLS airline, but still a way for an inexpensive direct flight. Our rental car is only $35 for all of us. We'll take it from the airport and turn it in to the port. Just an idea. Also, I am new to the DIS Boards & I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone. I have learned so much from your experience. Know that you are appreciated!!!

Let me know if anyone else's daughter and/or son who like someone to hang out. My daughter is 9 and an only child, so she would love to meet some other kids to hang out with in the Lab. I do know about the list, but I thought it would easier to ask here, instead of sending a pm to everyone.

2 of my DD's will be 9 and 10 on the cruise! I am sure they will be in the Lab a lot and love to make friends!

That's great! Our daughter is an only child & it sounds like there will be a fair amount of girls in this age range to play with. We are from Ohio...probably not far from you!
