AmandaRG!

Amanda and I know each other as we were on the same cruise meet thread. That is until I had the audacity to move my cruise date....

To answer a question I got asked many pages ago (wow are we prolific!):

No, I haven't heard any rumors of pricing. I'm not a CM any longer, and even then we knew about as much as the bus drivers who always seem to have "inside information"

I did ask a few people what they paid on the past WBTAs so I could get a ballpark figure of what I could expect. A little more pricey than I had thought, but oh well. I either hope to book a dummy onboard during my Dream cruise next month, or re-shop if DCL has opened bookings before then.

Several people PM'ed me about 800FlyEurope. I think that is going to be the way to go! I had been thinking it'd cost me $1K or more for airfare, so the prices I'm seeing for 2012 as a guideline are a welcome sight.

Hi Davidls - I recognize you from one of the meet threads I was on!
Hi to you too ThePhantomsGirl. Yes we both were on the Dec 15, 2012 cruise. You and Shari changed yours to Jan or Feb 2013 I believe? So glad we will - hopefully - get to sail together on this one. Is Shari going on this one as well?

You know it seems like I just posted on this thread yesterday that we intend to sail on this cruise. And, now it is 6 pages longer!!! Hey,................looking back.................it was just yesterday I posted!!! WOW, this sure has gotten up a good head of steam!!! Disney HAS to do this now.............don't they!!!!

Thanks, Holly! I am hoping this one is a reality. What an amazing experience for the girls it would be!

I don't think that Shari will be on it. She has mentioned before that it *might* be something she would do under the right conditions!

I am going to have to look into the 1800FLYEUROPE! Four airfares, ugh!

David--as you can probably tell we are all obsessed! (but in a good way)

No, Shari won't be coming with me. You all are stuck with just me.

Yes, the 800FlyEurope sounds like a lifesaver.

While the airfare is a killer for those of you with families, the solo supplement will get me. Although I do like having my own space.

At least the Wonder and The Magic have the ability to split beds. I know there are many that are upset with the fact that the Dream and the Fantasy don't make it easy for friends to sail with friends. You either have to share a bed (which I hate - I want my own space), or someone has to sleep on the couch.

Hi Amanda!! I had to go back thru and read up on the 6 pages I fell behind on since yesterday. Saw that you are planning to go as well. Nice to see some names and people DW and I know.

Holly, yes I agree, all of us are obsessed with the possibility this is going to happen. It's got to now!!! We are not stuck with you, we all are glad you decided to join us on this cruise!!!

I don't want to bring a slight downer on this thread BUT If the dates are correct then it is possible that the end of the cruise might coincide with UK school holidays

That might make the air fare a bit more

Just saying.....

Add us too please!

I'm Suzanne and am hoping to bring my 3 youngest over to visit relatives in the UK pre-cruise. I figured traveling with the 3 little ones will have me 1/2 insane by the time we reach the ship so I'll need a long relaxing break before we reach home again Have an inside room being waited to book by our DU agent as we NEVER spend much time in the room anyhow.
My children will be Finnian (DS 5), Graiden (DS 6.5) and Madigan (DD 8.5) at the time of the trip. DH will be staying home with our disabled child but hopefully will meet us post-cruise for a stay at WDW.... if that's where we disembark.
As of right now, their Grammie is also hoping to join us... Please God ... I'll need the help

I may volunteer again if I can use a new vendor!


That's where I went & had my Pussers, the Pussers Rum Bar. It was a fab little bar but I definitely want to go to JVD this time!
After John and I got back from JVD, we went to Pussers for rum and a Blooming Onion!

I would be willing to help with the lanyards but I don't want to be in charge.

Hi Sandy and Tom Trevor really enjoyed this cruise last time, we may not even leave the ship next time!

I just love that there is a very active thread, a FB group with over 60 members for a cruise that has not been formally announced yet....people in my non 'DIS' world just don't get this

JVD is an experience that will be in my memoirs of one never to forget

We had so many fabulous experiences with our muckers on the WBTA 2011, there is no way I would pass up another trip with you all

Mary I have to agree, all that money we splashed on three cruises last year, we didn't use the balcony much. And the dark may have meant that I didn't end up on deck 10 at 4.30 am and hence norman wouldn't have taken that photo of me crashed out by the cove cafe
I know I was just as wrecked as the rest of you, I had no recollection of those photos when you posted them on facebook my only saving grace was no sunburn

That's where I went & had my Pussers, the Pussers Rum Bar. It was a fab little bar but I definitely want to go to JVD this time!

To be fair to Lee there is no way possible for him or anyone to stop me getting excited about this cruise....well unless DCL don't announce it BUT that does not bare thinking about!!!!!
You'll need to send me the photos so that I can show Stevie what he missed and that we ate his portions too

I have to say that on the way to JVD I was panicking a bit, when DCL had cancelled their trip, due to the impending bad weather?! which didn't happen, it was scorching, and the other boat broke down about getting back and missing the ship.... but on the way back I couldn't care less for some reason

I hope for Lee's sake that the announcements are out before our mini-meet in February, he will be going mental with all our what ifs

On the other hand, if it is all public and we have booked for this upcoming WBTA, we can whip him into a frenzy too hopefully !!!!
