I know were are still over a year away from our cruise, but has anyone decided where they will stay the night before the cruise? Even though we will probably drive to Port Canaveral from Louisiana, I still like to arrive the day before the cruise. In the past I have stayed at the Radisson on the Park-n-Cruise package and taken their shuttle. Just wonderin if I should consider any other places that have a Park-n-Cruise package. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Good question. DH and I were discussing if we wanted to add a couple nights before, but that sounds like a great idea. We really need to figure out a nice hotel with a shuttle is we pass up WDW the night before.

My DH Ray (39), I-Heather (37), DD Kayla (12), DS Tyler (9), & DS Mackenzie (7) will be driving down to PC from our small town in Massachusetts. We loved participating in the FE exchange on the Dream so PLEASE add us to the FE list!!!!

So I had to say goodbye to my last March 30, 2013 Fantasy cruise group and say Hello to my new group- You all... So Hi

My name is Cori-sahm to Kayla (currently 6 1/2 but will be 7 1/2 on cruise-gotta get those 1/2's in there or some little one gets angry lol) who is going into 1st grade and Zachary (4, but will be 5 on cruise) going into Pre-K. We currently live in Charlotte, NC but I am orginally from Seattle/Tacoma, WA area where my mom lives. However, we might be relocating yet again (when I say again, we just moved to Charlotte from the D.C. area a year ago)-dh, the king, is looking for a career change, basically that is why we rescheduled our cruise to a later date.

on this cruise it will be us 4, my FIL and FIL'sGF, and my mom- three cabins total. This will be my very first cruise

to all the newcomers to our cruise. Are you as excited as I am about this cruise? Hope to "talk" to everyone a lot more during our wait until October, 2013.

Welcome!! You are going to love your Disney cruise, and so will your DS. I really don't know much about the kids clubs, since my DD is older, but from what I hear, most kids love them. Even if he doesn't go to the Clubs, he will have a blast...there is the AquaDuck, the Fantasy has the AquaLab which looks really fun. I want to try that myself. Always something going on. The shows are great. We really enjoyed them on my cruises on the Magic and the Dream. Glad you joined us to countdown!!

Hello! My husband and I just got back from our third Disney cruise (this time an Alaskan cruise on the Wonder) and we booked this cruise while on board. We will be celebrating our four-year wedding anniversary on October 17, so we had the date in mind before weeks before we went on our Alaskan adventure.

We're not sure if we're participating in the FE yet; we never have before, but we're leaning towards doing it this time. Our stateroom number is 8570.

Thanks! We are really looking forward to the cruise. We plan on DS spending at least a couple of evenings in the Oceaneer Lab/Club, especially if we can get into Palo or Remy. We're sailing just 2 weeks after our 18th anniversary. I am Martin, DW is Kirsten and DS is Daniel.

I just switched sides of the ship from stateroom 10100 (port) to 10592 (starboard). I changed for a view of the Florida coast as we sail south out of Port Canaveral and a <possibly> higher chance of a CC view when docked there...

We live in Cape Coral about 4 hours from Port Canaveral and will drive up the night before. We plan to stay at one of the hotels offering the 40% Port Canaveral parking coupon and will park at the port.

Pondering FE - we'll probably do it for DS.

Martin

Hi Martin, Kirsten and Daniel. I'm Tammy, DD is Rachel and traveling with us on her first Disney cruise is Jeanette, my Aunt (a big kid at heart). We will be in stateroom 6146.

I have stayed in the past at the Radisson, parked there and used their shuttle. Which hotels offer the 40% Port Canaveral parking coupon? I'd like to check them out and see if we would prefer staying somewhere else this time and parking at the Port. It would be much more convenient to park at the Port and a discount would be nice.
