I got up at 3am and was able to choose the 11am Port Arrival Time. I probably could've waited until 7am and still been able to choose that time, but I really want to get on the ship as soon as I possibly can and didn't want to chance it.


BTW, if everyone didn't realize it already... We'll be turning the clocks back while we're on the cruise, so we get an extra hour on the Dream.

Hi Everyone. I just joined thanks to tip from Zandy595. My name is Paula and DW ( Joanna ) and I are coming on the Disney Dream also on November 1st! We are going to Halloween scary party on the 31st so should be fun! We are staying at SSR before and after (DVC members ) . We did the same cruise last year for 3 nights on the dream but in October for my 40th birthday. But I was unwell for my birthday and remained in my stateroom. We still enjoyed it! I am disabled and have health issues but am hoping to make it out of the stateroom more this time! I never can tell with my health so I figure increase my probability and go more times! Cant wait!

Paula & Joanna! Glad you made it over here.

Umm, you can't claim a senior moment if you're only 40! We were on the Dream last year in October also (10/27) for DH's and my 41st birthdays. Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well. Hopefully this year will be better.

Yes I probably am on sticky ground there re claiming a senior moment lol. I see my mistake now re the Fantasy in my signature. We booked a 7 night cruise for the fantasy but decided with my health issues to cancel it as it stopped in ports that weren't very accessible ( Mexico ). Plus we did not like the idea of being that far from a US hospital. So we rebooked the Dream for the Bahamas like last year which we loved anyway. I have edited my signature now. Thanks for pointing that out!

We have booked the Dream for 2013 in September for the 4 night Bahamas cruise. Just cant get enough! Got in early to get an accessible cabin.

On the November 12 cruise I booked 11:00 checkin!

Whats the earliest we can get onboard anybody know? Shall I save myself for lunch!

From what I've heard, boarding should start around 11:30am. Since you (and I) have an 11am port arrival time, we'll probably get boarding #3 or close to it. That's what we got last year. We ended up getting to the port a little later than I wanted (11:30) and were still sitting at a table in Cabanas before noon.

Ph my goodness at Cabanas by noon! How fantastic. We decided to drive ourselves to the port this year as the disney transport gets you there too late! I want to maximise it! Plus its free handicap parking at the port :-)

I am too excited for words. I have a disney days countdown on my ipad. 71 days till we fly London to Orlando..

Do you fly also?

Awesome! What a nice place to live :-)

Is it easy to get a parking space? You dont have to prebook it or anything?

There are always plenty of parking spots available when we get there. I know you can't prebook regular parking at the terminal, but I don't know anything about the free handicapped spots. You may want to call or email DCL about that. I didn't even know that handicapped parking was free.
