I hate that our time in Key West is so short though! 7:30-12:45!

So true but we'll be having a blast no matter what! Don't forget you can snorkel at castaway. I know you and DD will have an amazing trip! My DD was just a little older when we first did the Magic!!!!!! Lots and lots of wonderful memories....

John and Lisa Skier as well as Kevin and Bernadette Riley and their son "Bear" who is two.

We just got off the inaugural cruise out of Galveston and thought we would take the "last" one (Magical that is) as well.

We participated in the FE and it was amazing fun. Hope to have our same servers again...will have to wait and see.

For this next cruise I have passed the threshold and am "gold", my daughter, husband and grandson are silver and my son in law will be experiencing a Disney Cruise for the first time - in person. Since he was deployed for our cruise last week we brought along the "daddy" doll and they set a place for him and all the characters took pictures with him...it was great fun.

How exciting!!! I can't wait for this itinerary. ( Castaway and WDW are you kidding me! ) since You just got off the Magic can you share your excursions with us or any thoughts on your cruise? I haven't been on the Magic in over 10 years😁 I keep saying this but I still can't believe we have a Disney ship this close to home!!!! We'll be doing the 7 day Magic in a few weeks! Thanks and see you in May😊

Cruising after all

Since we started a thread about the cruise on the Dis DCL Forum, thought we'd better check in here, too!

Signed up for this cruise while onboard the Wonder's Hawai'ian cruise a week or so ago.

Wasn't going to cruise in 2013, but couldn't pass up the deal: Galveston, Key West, and WDW (with transport from PC + a one-day Park Hopper).

This will be our 12th Disney cruise. As I mentioned before, we weren't going to cruise in 2013 (there was the Hawai'ian this past October and a Panama Canal in January '14 (not Disney), but the offer and itinerary were just too great to pass up. Folks ask why we vacation when we're retired, but living in Paradise, we need a break every now and then, ya know?

We've got our transfers from IAH to Galveston reserved (flying in a day before embarking with a hotel ressie in Galveston thru DCL; never fly in the day-of) and now we're working on our air tix. DCL is not doing air from Mexico - or at least not this early - so we're scouting websites and hoping for a sale!

Hope eveyone's plans are also progressing (even if you don't have OCPD).

Well, not wanting to wait too long, we've booked our air for this cruise earlier this week: Mexico City to IAH the day before embarkation, DCL transfers to Hotel Galvez with an overnight stay, and transfers to the ship; DCL transfers from ship to IAH and the flight back to Mexico City at the end of the cruise.

We've even earmarked a port excursion for Key West! Now the big question: Can we get Disney Dining for our day at WDW??? There would be a long bus ride back to the ship for meals....

Hello I changed our spring break Fantasy cruise to this cruise last week. My daughter is 11 and we are excited to be joining you. We would like to do FE if there is a FE group?

Hey all, it's been a while!

So... we ended up changing our mind about this cruise. To make a long story short: We figured it'd be a bit redundant to get married in Disney World, then fly to Texas to take a cruise to Disney World. I'm a huge Disney fan and was so excited for my first Disney Cruise, but that's a little much even for me. Perhaps next time.



Y'all enjoy the cruise!

Our family of 5 will be joining in on the fun! This will be our first Disney cruise, and the first cruise for the kids. We are Disney fans, so this will be a blast! Love the itinerary!
