Rain Forest spa

To those who have been around the block a few times---would it be best/cheaper if I purchase a day spa pass/voucher before we sail ($15 each) or hope I run into an on board special?

I've found that in order to get the value of the pass, you'd have to go to the Rainforest every day, which I found hard to do. Maybe that's just me though. Last time I cruised, I bought it only on the days I made it there.

My mother in law was in an ECV so I may not have noticed the steepness of the incline. I'm sure we can find an indoor location. The best location we did it on the ship was Studio Sea since we had it to ourselves - the ones I have been to in the promenade seem more confusing due to other guests and activities in that area - I'm thinking even more so since we are meeting on the second day. It is fairly high traffic compared to other locations. What do you think about the front entrance area of the Walt Disney Theatre? Sometimes they have characters there but it is usually more out of the way. Would that be a good back up plan?

Have been on 4 cruises but this is our 1st Disney Cruise.

Put us down for the meet and greet: Russ & Janice. Not sure about the FE, Wine Tasting, and postcards; need to do research on these as I am not familiar with how they work.

We live in Richmond, TX. (close to Houston)

On WBPC it worked pretty well. I booked military rate verandah and most that had vgt were right there with me on the 7 deck. Only issue you might have is if you get navigators verandah which have a white wall instead of plexi.

My DH and I booked SW on points and they went down over 1,000 points for each of us on our return flight. Both flights have gone down quite a bit from when I booked them on the first day. I try to check every day or so.

Ok. I booked our gran Shelby in to San Diego so she could go to Disney before we leave on cruise. I think I paid $126 for one way. I thought that was good.

I can book excursions tomorrow (the 16th) and wondered is that tomorrow morning sometime or tonight at midnight? Any help with the time (& time zone) it will open for me would be greatly appreciated. I've been waiting anxiously! I'm really hoping the Outdoor Adventure with the hiking, donkey ride, repelling, zipline is going to be available. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! See you in 91 days
