Naples

We are still looking to see if anyone would like to share our car and driver with us in Naples, we are driving up the coast, stopping in all the towns, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi and Pizza. 450 Euro for the car and it can fit 8, we are a family of 4, even if it's just another couple we can split fairly for you. Our kids are 14 & 10 and they are very well behaved and seasoned travelers. Let me know...

Hello!

Hello Friends!

Whew. 113 pages later, I'm all caught up and ready to introduce ourselves. We are Matt and Lindsay (in case you couldn't tell from our username) from Philadelphia, PA. Matt (30) is a lawyer, and Lindsay (27) is an actress and theatre administrator.

We are new to Disney cruising but not cruising in general- and were glad to find DISboards because the roll call for this cruise on Cruise Critic was looking very short! We figured out its because you all are on here

So anyway, I'm going to post in separate posts a few things since I have to get up to 10 to PM for the FB group. Bear with me please and lovely to meet you all!

post 2!

We booked very late (April 18th) so I have a TON of catching up to do in terms of planning. We plan to do the ports on our own; Matt spent a year in London and traveled extensively during that time so he is familiar with most of the places we are going.

3!

Read a little ways back about a possible private lunch in Palo- we would totally be on board for that! I'm having trouble deciding if I want to do dinner there at all. I'd hate to miss anything exciting going on on the main dining rooms- any thoughts on that?

Quatro

As far as travel goes, we're on a red-eye out of Philly the 24th. We get 22 hours in London and then on to Barcelona! (I think Matt is MOST excited about our 22 hours in London- he hasn't been back since he lived there for a year, and misses it terribly!)

On the way back, we plan to self-disembark- flight at 11:30. Only thing I haven't decided yet is if we think getting a taxi will be OK or if we should get a car.... with only two people a taxi might be easier? Any insight from you vets on this?

We on British Airways the 24th, back on the 9th- flying through London each time. It was our best option to get time in London without paying extra. Our 22hours there is considered a layover, so it doesn't cost any extra for the stop. Also, I have to get back right away on the 9th since I'll arrive back into tech week for a show that opens July 12th! (crazy I know

As to the group brunch, so far, that's a no go. There wasn't much interest and one wasn't organized. Personally I prefer dinner in Palo so I wouldn't pass it up!!!! We're doing both as we usually do!!!!

As for a taxi, I think as long as you're off the ship early you should be ok. The taxi line was over an hour in 2010, though we were 4, so a lot of taxi's wouldn't fit us. Just get off as early as possible, like 7:30 or 8:00, and you should be fine. Airport is about 30 minutes away. we have private transfers this time because of our past experience.

5 to go!

I'm excited to do some door decorations- on other cruise lines, we were the anomaly, and I made fun signs with our Cruise Critic names for everyone in the group. Would anyone be interested in that? I totally understand too if that's not the cool thing on Disney I put a pic below of the one I made for our Cruise last year to give you an idea. Though they would be much more Disney-ified this time! I've been playing around too with the awesome word image generator and i'm sure that would make its way into the design- thanks for whoever found that!

Once we finally have what we are doing settled, i'll definitely fill it in on the GoogleDoc- nice to be able to see all the different things people are choosing!

I'm hoping to have a beach day somewhere... Don't know about the rest of you but we will need at least one day off from touring for some good relaxing! Suggestions? Maybe La Spezia? Or Malta?
