We are staying in one of the AllStars, I forget which, but we are getting a regular magical express transfer! We let them know we were running in the Princess and they said they have a later pick up time for us! I'm not sure what hotel we may be picked up from, but that's the plan!

We are going back to Disney at Coronado after the cruise for a few days in the parks too!

Tiffany Towncar. We've used them in the past and they have been great. DH doean't want to deal with driving, so I'm not really sure how the cost compares to renting a car. I know it is close in cost to using Disney Transfers, plus we get a store stop and don't show up at the exact same time as 50 other people.

I was a little worried that my girls would be the only "older" kids on the ship and felt mildly guilty for taking them out of school, so I'm glad to see there will be some others!
We decided today for our family to run the Family 5k on Saturday so I'm sure we will all be wearing our medals. I have seen both yes and no for the 5k on Castaway Cay...

Our cruise documents arrived today.

I know it's just luggage tags and a booklet with information I already know, but I'm still excited!

just booked also!

hi everyone...

just hung up the phone from finalizing our late booking on the Dream on 2/24 for 4 nights!

it'll be myself (ellen), hubby (jimmy) and our son, 12 yo (billy)...I dont know what the DH,DW,etc stands for ...sorry.

i am grateful I made it on before the 24th cutoff as we really would love to join the FE!

one question..the FE is left on our door and we put gifts in all the families different FE's..right? Not sure if we can join as we are in the concierge section and it claims you need a room key to enter the hallway???

we've never cruised before although have stayed at WDW numerous times. we'll be staying at Contemporary when we get back.

I will email my info in hopes that we can still be included!
thanks
ellen

counting the days.............yippee

I think we had a concierge level before as part of a previous FE and I know we managed to get them their gifts. I'll have to ask my hubby later.

How many are in the FEW now? Still trying to decide - we are traveling with another family who will not participate and I don't want their kids to feel left out. Thanks!

Just decided to book this cruise w/ DD24 :-). We will be at WDW for Princess race weekend (I am doing my 5th 5K race - that's far enough for me!) then will drive to the cruise port after Sunday brunch at Chef Mickey! Older DD doing the 1/2 but not free to cruise :-( with us this time. Maybe, since I will be in race mode, I will finally do the CC 5K (I said, "maybe")...

DD24 is hoping that she gets to Castaway Cay as our first Disney Dream trip did not make it there due to high winds (same time of year so fingers crossed and sending to the captain)

I love/live to cruise and look forward to meeting many of you! I have been on all 4 Disney ships (favorite is the Disney Magic) and 4 days is far too short, but short is better than no cruise, right?

Hey all...just booked this cruise yesterday on a VGT. Was on the fence for a few weeks and just decided to do it. I think the 10 degree days here in NY finally convinced me we had to get away this winter.

Just hubby and I this time. We usually cruise with tons of people but not this time. Kids (DD28, DS27 and DD24) all have job commitments and can't come (though they are jealous!)

Going to West Palm Beach first for a few days before and then head over to Port Canaveral for the cruise.

For those that have not been on the Dream yet...she (and the Fantasy) are just breathtakingly gorgeous. Can't wait to get on the Dream again. This will be cruise #29 on DCL so if anyone has any questions I can answer feel free to ask away. We were lucky enough to be on the MV of the Dream and this will be our 5th Dream cruise. Also cruised the Magic (MV) and Wonder several times.

One month from today and we will be sailing!!!

MJ
