Money is my favorite egg treasure to find! Perhaps I can have John fill them with DCL gift cards...

Another question... Sorry...

Can we charge things to our cruiseline KTTW at WDW or do I need another form of payment?

[QUOTE="BlueMarlin"]

He goes to high school during the day, and has one study hour for each college course. He could go to college during the day, but then would have to make up all the work, so easier to look for late afternoon / evening classes. Hoping he does well this semester, he wants to move up to University of Michigan for sophomore year if possible. Needs to do well before I will kick in the up-charge for that [/


Wow that's a lot of work. Well when he graduates and get a CEO job he can then repay you all that you're done for him

He could have 40- 50 college credits when he graduates high school. The best part is that the high school pays the tuition. We cover books and lab fees. So, he is a freshmen is high school and college. there are around 15 students in his HS that are dual enrolled. High school during regular school hours and college at night.
He shouldn't be embarrassed but I can understand. I was talking to my DD one day about applying herself in school to her most potential she said she didn't want to be in the smart class because all the kids get made fun of. Sad. If he is that smart it's a gift and he should embrace it.

He wants to be a senator. He was talking about running for President the other day.

Is anyone making name tags for the Meet?

As for Easter outfits....not our thing (Jewish) but I was on the Wonder just before Christmas, and they had photo ops in the evening that included Christmas themes....Mickey and Minnie in patterned sweaters, gifts as props, etc. So....although I understand that few kids (or adults!) want to wear their Easter finery all day....consider wearing some one evening for nice photos.

No need to be sorry. I had heard that the KTTW cards were restricted to the ship, but you piqued my interest so I called DCL just to confirm and here is the scoop:

Ship KTTW Card is only currency on the ship. You also need it for embarkation and debarkation. In addition, the DCL bus system uses it to enable you to get the free ride back to Port Canaveral.

Whilst in the WDW parks and or resorts, you will need to use standard tender (cash, credit, etc.)

Speaking of which, if you have one of the Disney Credit Cards and use it directly you frequently get a percent off the purchase (10% ?)

Booked our pre-cruise hotel. We decided to stay at the Comfort Suites. It's 20.00 for their shuttle up to four people to and from the port. Plus they offer free parking during the cruise. I though it was a steal. I am hoping to get in to Galveston somewhat early on Thurs, but it depends on what time we leave on Wed.

We also got our cabin number today as well it's 5131 so you can add that to the FE list. Was that all you needed Blue Marlin?

Trying to decide what park to go to on the PC day. What day has everyone decided on?

Also can you bring beer and liqour on board in Galveston? I heard they have tougher laws there.

Holy Smokes!!! I did a quick search and got a big

It appears the laws are that you may not purchase liquor on Sunday, and all liquor served in Galveston must be purchased in Texas, so we should expect a limited bar menu until we clear the 3-mile island radius to open water.

I called DCL and they confirmed that if you order a Bon Voyage package that includes any alcohol, it cannot be delivered to your room until the ship clears the 3-mile border.

The DCL agent did not have a specific policy warning of the BYO issues in Galveston and did not have any anecdotal evidence of troubles for BYO. She seemed to think we were just fine, that it was the ship that was constrained not individuals.

A quick scan of the various chat boards showed many people having issues, but all of them were non-DCL and there were even a few from DCL laughing at the others that had stuff confiscated.

Hopefully this was a red herring and we look to be good for BYO.

So whatcha bringing... I am thinking a bottle of Scotch, nothing fancy, and maybe Bourbon. Debating on rum and/or vodka for the girls. (We have 4 cabins)

If you want to buy in Texas, I see Hall's Liquor is on 2121 45TH STREET at Avenue Q and a half. Which appears to be about 8 blocks straight away from the cruise port (south east by the compass) they open at 10am
