Thank you.

Okay, so I shouldn't have 4 cups of coffee before an excursion. Got it.

Also, bring change or small bills for toilets???

I can't imagine the bathrooms accept credit cards. But, the times they are a'changin'.

Change for the loos. My guess is that if you gave a note, the change may not be forthcoming!

Sorry if this has been answered before but I've got a question about tipping. Can we pre-pay the tips for the servers, room stewards etc before we go? If not can we opt out of having the amount added to our room bill and pay in cash? Also if we pay in cash does it have to be dollars or Euros?

Yes, you can prepay your gratuities - call either your travel agent or Disney cruise Line with your reservation and credit number and they will do it for you.
If you choose to pay by cash, you need to head up to guest services when you embark and let them know that this is what you intend to do. The currency is up to your discretion-you would put the cash into the little envelope provided and pay the person directly.

Thanks for the help, our travel agent was supposed to find this out for us ages ago but they haven't got back to us. Looks like we need to get back onto them again!

we paid ours a couple of weeks ago. Just need to call DCL and they can arrange it for you. Saves the credit card for everything else on holiday.

Thanks Alex, that's exactly why we want to pay up front... The idea of everything mounting up on my card while I'm onboard scares me to death! I terrified I'll get home to a massive bill or even worse end up over our limit.

I have the same credit card fears. I think I will look into the pre-pay option on the tips. I can always add more later through cash at the end.

The credit union here charges a flat fee for the exchange. I'll be ordering that next week.

FE UPDATE.


I have been out of town for a while and I'm not retuning home until July 2nd. NewFamyMan has changed his room number to 2148. I find Google Docs hard to manage from my phone. I tried to change the number but I can't "reorder" the rooms until I get home or get access to a computer. Anyway......As rooms may be changing all the way up until the end, I would make sure you printed out the "latest" copy right before you leave! Thanks! Not much longer now!!!

The Google Doc is a closed document. It is the list for the FE game which was closed on June 8th.

Idea

Hi. I just took pictures of our passports and saved them to our iPhone in our security app. That way we don't have to carry around photocopies of our passports. I'm getting really excited! Kelly.

I think my Italian language program leaped waaaay ahead of me last night. I worked on it for an hour, and I understood very little. I'm still trying. I can say hello and how much does that cost. Haven't got to the "where's the bathroom?" yet. It went on to paragraph long sentences involving castles, museums,

Just my way of trying to feel like I'm doing something positive to get ready.

I like the picture of the passport on the iPhone. We'll have to use my DW's phone. I still maintain and archaic flip type phone. I'm NOT technologically inclined.

Barcelona Sagrada Família

Hi. I just bought a 1 year family pass for 38 euros to Sagrada Família. With this pass you don't have to stand in line and you can go any time you want. You also get 50% off tours or audio headsets. You can also go up the towers. It's good for 2 adults and 2 children under 18. It was a better deal for us then buying a 1 day pass and you are not committed to a specific time slot. I bought it online at the official web page.
