Likely there are nonstops out of DC but we are 3 hours from there and it is costly to leave your car there. The most we pay to leave a car at one of the 3 airports here is $10 a day with one being $5. Also if we leave from closer to home a good chance someone will take us to the airport. Sue

We drive the 5 hours to ATL but my brother lives there so he can get us to the airport and back - or if we have a super early flight, he can get us to a hotel with a shuttle and keep our car for us while we're gone.

DCL flies us out of ATL even though we are closer to Orlando - something about markets. But that's ok because we actually like flying out of ATL and since we have a place to leave our car, that works for us. DCL could fly us cheaper out of JAX but by the time we paid parking, it will cost more to go from JAX than from ATL.

Hi again everyone! I've been so busy the last few months that haven't gotten to post but I'm definitely getting excited and only a year and a few weeks to go. We're planning on going over a week early and stopping in Scotland or flying into London and driving up to Scotland through the lake district. We're also doing the B2B with a little spain afterwards- so we are looking at about 5 weeks My husband thinks I'm crazy- quote of the week "yes it's a small world, but I don't think we have to see it all at one time".

The only potential roadblock is time off work but since both of us always work the holidays while everyone else disappears we should be okay. That's next months hurtle when tickets start to come out. We are basically doing 1 ways and hoping we can use points so fingers crosses everything falls into place.

Now I'm going to get started planning!

Good morning. Just checking in to see what has been going on.
Have not been on here for a long time, so catching up.

Welcome. We did the Hawaiian cruise also. It has to be in the top 5 of the cruises we have taken. So much fun seeing the islands that way. Fun seeing old and new friends.

Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.

Had to move one of my "dummy" reservations from a previous ruise today. John and I may take this June 15, 2013 Med cruise if the WBTA doesn't materialize soon!

Anybody here from the Fantasy MV or the Hawaii cruise? Is there a roll call list somewhere?

Hello Everyone,

I've been away for awhile my company has been purchased by another bank and work has been non stop.

Just wanted to know your thoughts about the Adventures by Disney ad-on for the shore excursions. The cost is $2,989 per adult or 427 DVC points (for the DVCers in the group).

I'm thinking this is way over priced. I can get private tours at every port for less money then what ABD is asking for.

What do you think?

Wow, that is pretty expensive if you ask me. I plan to do some research on private tours as I have organized them before on other DCL trips.
