Just wanted to say that I hope everyone has uneventful flights to BCN. There have been several June 15thers who have had difficulty with airport issues and delays. Be sure to arrive extra early for your flight because it is better to wait at the airport than be a few minutes late, or encounter a long TSA line, etc.

I can't believe all the horror stories on that cruise! So many issues! Moral of the story, be at your airport EARLY, watch the news regarding strikes etc and be flexible!!!!

We only have to drive to O'hare, its about 1hr. 45 mins. Hopefully that will be uneventful!!!

S we didn't leave home until noon but it was fine because my brother couldn't meet us til 6:00 so he got to the hotel just a few minutes after us. We had dinner together then we returned the rental car and took the shuttle back to the hotel. Checked in online for our flights.... So now we sleep, have altar check out tomorrow, then off to the airport!
Glad it was fixable

Something to be said for doing this last minute

I know, right? And double check your airline info for flight schedule changes... I would say do so daily between now and when you leave. A family that was originally scheduled for June 27th had a cancellation that set off a chain of events that means they are now sailing with us again but were supposed to be on this week. I'm happy they are back with us, but whew, so much stress for them. A June 15ther's airline had a flight share so when she got to the airport to check in, she went to the counter for the flight she thought they had but the fine print said she should be at the other airline's check in... They missed their flight because the line was so long at the original airline. So check and double check and triple check. And do the same for passports and other critical documents.

1) When does your vacation begin? (out the door, flight, Spain, boarding...)


2) What are you most looking forward to tasting?


3) What is your favorite secret that you know or have heard about on the Magic?


4) Which port are you most excited about? Least?


5) How will you dress for pirate night?


6) What one thing do you wish you'd known before your first cruise?


7) Most irrational fear about this vacation?


8) Most rational fear about this vacation?


9) What moment are you most looking forward to?

10) What is your favorite Disney Character?
