Some of you know that we have a facebook page for the adults in the group. I had a fb group page for the kids/teens months ago but closed it because it didn't take off. Now that time is near I recreated a closed group for the kids so they can mingle prior to the cruise. It breaks the ice and they often look forward to the friends on the cruise they met through fb. They just request to be added to the group. Here is the link

Me and the wife wil be staying at Saratoga Springs Resort the night before the cruise. We will be using ME to the port. Does anyone know about the time when you are picked up at the resort and about what time you arrive at PC. I asked this question when I made the reservations but the CM didn't know.

We stayed at Saratoga Springs last Feb for our cruise Prestay.
We were dissapointed when we were told the ME would pick us
up at approx 12pm and didn't actually arrive until closer to 1pm.
When the bus arrived it had already picked up passengers at
other resorts and was close to full at that point.Our family of 4
had to sit in different areas of the bus.
By the time we boarded the ship,parrot cay had already finished
the Welcome aboard buffet.We had to go up to Topsiders on deck 9
(the magic).
This year we are staying at a condo off property,we will not rely on
the not so ME again,we lost 4 hours of ship time.I hope they have
gotten thier act together,but I wont chance it again.
I would say be persistant until you get a direct answer regarding
your port arrival time,we wish we had known.Good Luck.

I don't know where exactly I read it, but I also heard the ME pick up at resorts is rather late and it picks up at several resorts. We're staying at Wilderness Lodge pre-cruise and I am arranging private transportation to the port.

Oh no we are staying at beach club resort, and didn't arrange private transportation. Hope we don't have late pick up.

Considering the cost ME, it should be more magical.

We are renting a car from MCO driving to Boardwalk Villas. Gonna do Epcot (PM EMH on friday nite). Then drive to port in AM (w stop ato check out the Dreams Unlimited Welcome Center) drop off car at agency. All for $65. Can't beat that.

I just called DVC they said I could cancel my ME to the port and get a refund. She then gave me some names of car rental companies at the port which I will look for on my own. I checked the car prices some of them are lower then the price of taking ME. \I am definitely cancelling ME from the resort to the port but keeping the one from port to airport.

Yep just did same thing. Renting SUV from airport to Disney resort then to port and taking shuttle only 3miles away to ship. Keeping ME for return from ship to Disney resort and ME again next day to airport.

Just canceled my ME and rented a car from Budget. If anyone else is doing this be careful some car rentals like Dollar and Thrifty wanted to charge an extra 50 dollars for a drop off fee since it was one way.
