Welcome!

I was looking at all your cruises. We have sailed together before.
I was on the EBTA in 2011.

I find out tomorrow if the boss will let me have Good Friday off to be with you fine ladies and gentlemen.

Can anyone give me more info on the WDW bus? Is there one bus there and one bus back? That's a long time to be there and I am uncertain if my son could make it the whole day.

TIA,

Annie

Hopefully the boss gives you the ok!!

When you go online under port adventures you pick which park you want to start at for the day. It sounds like there are multiple busses because they leave at different times in the morning. On the way back I'm not sure how that is going to work. I know my kids may not last the entire day either.

The buses leave in the morning. You can sign up for the buses to the park of your choice after you pay in full. On the way back from the parks there are bus stops at each park designated for cruise ship buses and you just wait in line till there is space and you come back when you want. They start returning to the ship at 3:30 I think.

Thanks!! This is only our 2nd cruise. We did the Dream last spring for three days, but that was way too short! We never got around to cruising because we didn't want to take days away from the parks, but have found we really like it and DCL does it so well!! Also new to Disboards.

Welcome to GerrysWifeHlt, I added you (and DisneyCruising) to the FE and Meet lists, when you get your cabin number let me know to complete the entry. We are waiting on a few guarantees to pop in last minute cabin assignments.

Happy to help if you have any questions about the Magic (vs. Dream), you have a strong knowledge on this thread to help.

Thank you all for the welcomes :-). I think I'm pretty good on the Magic, especially after reading through this thread. You guys are good!! We are cabin 6570, with Gerry and Heidi, Lizzie (13) and Abi (11). We'd also like to try to make it to the meet-up.

One question, though- last cruise we were on Disney bus from the resort and I don't remember what time they got us there, but we had no lines and got right on. So what is the best time to check in to board, to get through and on board quickly? Is there massive congestion at 1pm?

Thanks. Look forward to meeting everyone!

Hi everyone! This is our 7th cruise and we are SO excited. We've done all 4 of the boats and have loved every one of them! I am a Disney fanatic and have visited Walt Disney World 20+ times.


I would love to participate in the FE and the meets. I'm a single parent and my 12-year-old daughter and her friend will probably ignore me the whole trip, so I'm looking for people to hang out with

We are:
Cabin 7514
Michelle (old enough)
Lauren (12)
Kasey (13)

I booked some things over the weekend. Can't wait for my spa appointments! Did anyone book the Epcot dessert party to watch Illuminations?

Really looking forward to this cruise. I love that we have all those 'at sea' days. So relaxing!

Forgot to include a tip for new cruisers:

Bring a white pillowcase and some permanent markers. You can leave them with guest services when you get on the ship and they'll have all the characters (or you can select only certain characters) sign the pillowcase for you. They leave the pillowcase for you in your room a few days later. You can also find some really cute embroidered pillowcases on etsy or ebay if you want to customize the pillowcase.
