Then HRC. After the cruise we will do Montserrat. We also have a hot air balloon ride scheduled for the 10th. Somewhere in here we want to do the cable cars. It was too windy last time. Hopefully we get it all done!
What a great adventure planned! I'd like to do the cable cars, too.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!!

I hadn't thought about the HOHO bust ours in BCN. We also get into BCN on June 26th in the early AM so hoping the room will be ready too!


I found this website with what seems like the perfect one day self guided tour (coming from someone who has never been to BCN):

http://promptguides.com/barcelona/gu..._day_guide.htm

I figured that whatever we missed on this day, we could pick up the day we return post-cruise.

I really think the Magic fountains seem fab

[QUOTE="teerama".

It seems that Disney Cruisers (although its the only Cruise Line I've ever been on) have a culture all their own.[/QUOTE]

Welcome aboard! This will be our first cruise that we have participated on the boards before sailing as well
Haha love how you refer to it as a culture! I'd like to think of it as that too

We will be staying at the Hilton Diagonal Mar for the pre-cruise and the Hilton Barcelona for the post-cruise.

Anyone else checking in at the Hilton Diagonal Mar? We didn't book a Barcelona excursion, we were hoping to 'hoof' it ourselves.

That Mickey D's sounds like a real winner
We're also staying at the Hilton Barcelona! We're doing it pre and post stay. Glad to hear of someone else staying there cause I don't know of anyone else who is!

Yes, because that's the only way we'd get to - I first started looking at it because someone here mentioned it (or on FB) and we were thinking to get a group together to go = but since we sail on Thursday and get back on Tuesday, unless you're coming in super early or staying several days late, it's blocked out. I remember in 2007 that several DISers from our group went but we weren't able to go as we came in too late. We learned that trip to always come in at least two nights ahead so you don't miss the port you're leaving from in terms of being able to sightsee.

I'll have to take a look - thanks for the link.

We're using http://www.barcelona-airport-transfers.com The prices that I got were pretty reasonable, though I booked them back in October.

I booked my flights through DCL with my reservation. Does anybody know when I can expect to be provided with the details of those flights in case I need to make changes? I have always booked my own flights in the past. Thanks.

45 days in advance unless you have long connections, then you would have been notified. You can't make any changes unless you've paid the air deviation fee.

You can call them and ask - it's usually 30-45 days in advance that they notify you officially, but you can call and see if they have it already scheduled. Or if you have a TA, have them check on your behalf.

We actually booked airfare on our own this time because it was enough less to do it ourselves even when adding in the extra for insurance. I checked today and if I were booking today, then DCL would be a better buy.

I also saw somewhere that the air modification form needed to be filled out 60 days prior to the cruise - how would I know if I need to modify something if I don't know what the flights look like yet? Doesn't it make more sense to see how the flights are assigned and then fill out the modification form?

Disney FAQ Section:
Question: What is the Flight Modification Form and how do I complete it?
Answer: This optional form allows Guests who have booked their flights through Disney Cruise Line to request such changes as airline, non-stop flights, different class of service and more. Simply fill in the fields on this form and select the "Submit" button. You will be taken to a Confirmation Page, where you can edit the form or print it for your records. You must submit the form at least 60 days prior to your sail date. A Disney Travel representative will contact you within 48 hours.
