Hi Sandy

Sorry if I am being cheeky, but are you the same Sandy that was the blonde lady and you were in one of the balcony cabins across from us on the last WBTA at deck 6 forward?

If so, us and Pinky166 were your across the hall neighbours?!

Just saying.....

That thought had occured to me also, might have to see what deals virgin offer again for it at least airfare was included in that.
Maybe dcl have worked it that way to fill more cabins this time

It was just my husband and me on the EBTA 2010; we had an inside cabin on Deck 6 and were perfectly happy. On the 2011 WBTA, we shared a cabin with our adult daughter, so we booked a GTY veranda for the extra space (and because we just love the ocean view) and received a slightly larger family room Deck 8 aft. But for just the two of us, we wouldn't mind if we were inside again.

My mother and niece accompanied us on the WB and had a single-porthole cabin, with which they were completely satisfied. Now, they have informed me (as has my daughter) that they would love to go on the next one, too, so I'll be booking for five again .

It's a metal tool used for removing nuts and things ... maybe you call it a wrench. I will look for a picture.

I do believe 'spanner' = 'wrench'!!!

I was booked on the 2011 WBTA (having loved the 2010 one) but my daughter's due date was September 27th 2011 which felt too close for comfort...

Lovely L'il Teddy is gorgeous and much loved by his G'ma (me!!)...

Hi Sue!

We had four of us (2 adults, a 6 year old and a 2 year old) in an inside for 2 weeks, and it was fine. Yes, a bit of organisation helps, but it's completely do-able. You'll barely be in your room!

When you book, you get the choice of dining times but the earlier one is most popular (don't know why... I don't like eating that early!). If the early one is full, ask to be waitlisted. If not, join us in the late one!


I am almost stupidly excited about this - come on Disney! Announce it already so I can find some flights!!!

OK, I can't resist! Count me in for another WBTA! Hello to all of my 2011 WBTA travelers and a special shout out to Table 23 early diners! Traveling will be me, Taina (sinnika) and possibly my sister. DH will need to hold down the fort since DS will be in high school. We are also hoping to do a family med cruise in June if the dates work out!

Just received an email from Disney saying we can order the new DCL brochure from 18th January - UK residents only. Other Europeans can order an online copy.

I wonder if the website will update on 18th or very close thereafter ?!

Thanks....I could have guessed all day, and that would never have entered my mind! Yes, we call it a wrench.

WARNING!!! Stupid Question Alert!!!

So, do you say "wrench in the works" (or something similar) meaning plans being jammed up???

Thank you...

My DD Sophie is just 29 and showed no real signs before announcing her pregnancy on last Valentine's Day... If I can recall how to post a pic, I'll share his gorgeousness...
