I called Disney cruise folks today to ask about our specific rooms and what types of beds are in our rooms...any who....she said that since payment is due at 11:59 pm on February 24, that is when our booking window opens. I was thinking it was midnight tonight (eastern time), but she said it's really tomorrow at midnight. Does that sound right to you all?

PP said they were getting up in 6 hours to make reservation, so I'm thinking I might not be the only one who misunderstood the timing/date thing???

Talking 75 Day Mark

Awoke at 5:55 AM this morning, logged onto computer at 6:00 AM, and made all the reservations I wanted (so far). Ressies are 7:15 AM Bus to MK on Day 5, one dinner and one brunch at Palo, and one massage. Also selected port arrival time of 12:00 Noon (though all other times were still available).

This cruise is starting to feel real now

Going back to bed for anther hour now. Night-night.

Oh man, confused as to how the CM totally messed that up. We had a whole conversation on it....oh well. No harm.

I was able to get an 11:00 check in time, and the 6:30 bus to Epcot...so that we can take the monorail to MK and make our 8:10 pre-park opening breakfast time. Still thinking about Palo day and time, we'll see what we can get.

At about 9:00 central time, there was nothing earlier than 7:15 for MK. I'm not sure if there just isn't one earlier, since the park doesn't open til 9:00 that day. So I registered us for Epcot at 6:30. We should be able to take the monorail to MK without a problem from Epcot.

Was also able to get on at 11:00 P.M. last night. Got an 11:00 A.M. check in time, a 7:15 A.M. to AK (we've never been & wanted to start there), and a Palo brunch.

We are excited as well!

It's starting to get real! Glad to see that everyone is getting the reservations they want. I got on last night and got the 7:15 AM bus to HS, and 11:30 AM check in. I wanted to have a later arrival at port, but DW said we will not be able to sit at home, cause the kids will be going nuts. To help relieve their anxiety, we plan to send them to school that AM, and check them out early. The teachers will hate us!
