Jim I must say I admire you resolve. All I know is once DCL contacts me, I will be switching to 10/6/13.

I hope that dcl contact us real soon! Be odd if they leave it much longer and they cannot get in contact with me and dw because we are on vacation. We will actually be onboard the Disney Dream this year lol..with the phone ringing at home..

I am probably the one who started this mess by asking Dreamer7787 where our cruise went when I tried to add some more family members and it had totally disappeared. I want to thank you for taking us in and for all your efforts trying to get answers. We are keeping our fingers crossed. It is a very disappointing circumstance being kept in the dark but it's amazing all the nice people you can meet along the way.

Honestly, it's a big thanks to you both for bringing this to our attention. I've been saying this to James privately since Saturday, that I thank Danielle a thousand times over for alerting us that night.

As soon as JQ read that post he immediately thought DVC and replied. We knew our cruise wasn't sold out because I check incessantly on a particular cabin (#12506) we've been secretly hoping to barter for at embarkation to enjoin our little cluster.

We had worked really hard to get the DCL to unlock 12000 and 12504 which are never available online in order to connect with the Roy. At one point we had both DVC and DCL involved since 12000 is on pts. We also have 12508 as part of our group. So 12506 was my Dream cabin to grab if at all possible for 4 days of bliss!!!!

there appear to be very few concierge booked at this point (heck, we may be the only ones) and the ships inventory is wide open.

I believe we surprised a lot of CM's and created quite the buzz Sunday morning and throughout the week.

Really can't thank you enough if we manage to stay onboard at our current booking since we were able to utilize that small window of opportunity to add passengers - including my parents!

I hope you do not think me very nosey but I had a look at the Roy on utube. Omg its fabulous! Dcl would have to really come up with some decent alternative plan to stop me getting in that if I had booked!

In Britain we favour getting handcuffs and locking ourselves to something fixed in the room singing 'we shall not be moved ' You could try that lol..

We did the same thing on youtube before we booked. It's extravagant but we made it affordable by applying points for two cabins and splitting the cash difference among the group. We do this as much as possible. It's a tremedous commitment of time in research and advance planning but you can travel in luxury on a beer budget

This trip includes our friends Cass and Joe G (and his wife Regina). Cass and Joe are on our bowling team aptly named "The Lounge Lizards". We've been picturing ourselves "lounging'" on that balcony and in that hottub for a year!!!!!!!!!!!! Cass bought herself some "loud" and quite busy disney lounge pants to commemorate this special event.

If this cruise is a go we hope you'll drop by!

I think it sounds amazing! Love to do something like this for DW and my 10 year anniversary in 2016 ( planning ahead with points etc ). I love hot tubs! But because of a medication I am on it lowers my immune system so I cannot go in the main hot tub that others use in case of infections. So having my own would be perfect!

We would love to pop by! I would love to meet you all :-) I want some of those disney lounge pants! Where did she get them!

Even though we will not be cruising together anymore, I'd like to share this photo I took. One of the cool things about living in Los Angeles.

Yes! A private hot tub would be ideal for you.

I'm not sure where Cass found them but I'll ask. Just to give you an idea of the character she is, look what she ran around the lobby of the WDW Dolphin Hotel wearing on Christmas Eve a fews years back.

What an awesome event to witness. Looks like you were able to get really close. Great picture.

Really sorry we aren't going to be cruising on this trip.

It was cool. Walking distance from where I live. It was maybe 100 feet from me. To bad about this cruise. I am just glad my friend is just rolling with the punches.

Alan, thats amazing. It makes me remember when we visited the Smithsonian Air and Space museum at Dulles Airport. They have the shuttle Discovery as a centerpiece where we were able to walk right up to it. It gave me chills.

Thanks. I have never been this close, but I grew up in the aerospace because my dad worked for Hughes Aircraft. He knew so many of the NASA people at JPL. I have had NASA seats for landings out here near Los Angeles at Edwards Air force Base. I have never been this close to a actual one. I did get to tour a mock up at Rockwell when I was about 10 or 11. That was cool, but not the real thing.
