We're Gold, so I'll be checking it out at the 105-day mark.

We booked a Palo brunch, and a cabana for the second stop at CC. That went well, but the online check-in was horrible. Took me over a day to get it to work - kept getting a server error. Finally got through, and then the pages were loading like molasses - took over an hour to fill everything out when it should have been 5-10 minutes, tops. My computer was working fine at any other site I visited, it was just the DCL website that was giving me problems. Very frustrating.

How many people are on the fish extender list? Is there a cut off date? I haven't decided on joining yet (Depends on how many staterooms)

I'll be traveling with my mom and this is kinda a celebration of her b'day on Oct. 2nd. We spurged for a concierge room for the first time and we're both really looking forward to it. Can't believe that our 120 day window is this Saturday already!

We did put in a couple of requests with the Concierge team but still tempted to be up at midnight to check. No matter what happens, I'm can't wait for this trip.

Plan to spend a few extra days at the BWV following the cruise so we can go to F&W festival at EPCOT. Think we'll go on our first day as that is Thursday and may be slightly less crowded than the w/end. Anyone who has gone before be able to tell me what to expect as this is our first time going to this event.

Thanks,

Hi Meg,
We are also in concierge and put in our requests to shore side a couple days before. They screwed up our dining ressies, which we fixed, but they did get the cabana we asked for.
Hope to see you guys in the lounge. This should be a great cruise.

Hi Johnny,

Do I also see that you guys are from NJ? I'm a Somerset girl myself.

Glad that you got your reservations taken care of.

We did put in a few request with the shore concierge team and when I logged in at midnight they are all booked for us. We booked a bunch of first for us - Palo's brunch on sea day, Remy's dinner plus a cabana on the 2nd day at CC. Very happy with our ressies and now cannot wait for this trip!

The only thing was we haven't been able to check-in. Will try again today with hopefully better luck.

Have you traveled concierge before? This is a first for us but we definitely plan to be in the lounge a bit of I'm sure we'll see you.

This is our first cruise in concierge and they made it very easy to get our bookings. We also are doing Palo Brunch. You won't be disappointed, it's a fabulous meal. We've brunched on both the Dream and Fantasy...love them both.

Yes we plan to take advantage of the lounge as much as possible so I'm sure we will meet many times. Can't wait.

Happy Limo Charter

There is room available on our bus charter right now as 6 seats in each direction have become available due to a change in plans.

Anyone interested please post your requests on this thread and I will put your name on those seats.

Thanks,
Jim

DH (Bob) and I booked yesterday as my 50th birthday present.

We booked a 9B on Deck 2. Haven't cruised with DCL since 2003, but we are really looking forward to member cruise.

I am a little concerned about a cruise "to nowhere," since DH isn't really a beach person, but maybe he can relax.

I will keep my fingers crossed that we might be able to pick up a cabana. A little bike riding and some walking might keep him entertained.

I am really looking forward to the special onboard activities.

See you soon!

Beverly

Haven't been on this thread much lately but now that our last trip before the cruising is done we can concentrate on cruise planning.

Anybody know what the current Castaway Club gift is?

Welcome back

At the end of April, the Castaway Club gift was still the blue DCL back pack, 2 pkgs of mickey cheese crackers, Castaway Club key chain. We are gold, so also got a luggage strap, pkg of note cards and a bound journal with pen.
The last luggage strap we got was black with red, this one was black with blue.

Looking forward to the Sept MC

This will be the first cruise with DW without the kids since our honeymoon. We're going to take in a couple of days at SSR before the cruise and get a chance to do the Epcot Wine & Food Festival before we board the ship!

Apologies if this was already covered in the thread (I'm new to DISboards): are there any formal nights during the MC?

Hello and Welcome to the new posters! I am an old disboard person, but a newbie for the DVC and Member Cruises, but I actually know the answer to the formal question! No, there is no Formal night.

There are lots of "seasoned veterans" here, so they will able to answer any of your questions.

Looking forward to meeting everyone IRL- or as the kids say In Real Life!
