BTW, for those of you with kids, are you doing early or late dining? I booked late dining -- for some reason I can't recall now -- and I think I should change it. We'll be coming from the east coast, so 8 pm dinner will be like 11 pm to my kids. I'm curious if most people with kids are doing early or late?
We love late dining with the kids due to Dine and Play! We have a 7 & 9 yr old. It makes for a much more enjoyable dinner and our kids love the earlier show time.

I know if you use Disney coaches your bags are checked all of the way to your cabin and you are saved the hassle. Now that I've been assigned a boarding time hours after our flight arrival I'm wondering if we should just switch to the coach and hope DCL is able to squeeze us in early. Anyone have any experience with this?
Not sure about how it will be in LA, in MCO Disney has the bag thing down for both DCL and WDW. I think the ports that do not have DCL all the time it is not as smooth a ride - at least that was the feedback from folks on our last Galveston cruise and I'm guessing LA might be similar.

caught up

Just finished catching up on all the posts.

I'll need a ride to Hobby as well so if anyone needs one additional rider let me know.

Like some of you I'm staying at the Crowne Plaza the night before. I did that on the Hawaii trip and it worked out really well. Used the Super Shuttle to get from LAX to the hotel. They were cheap and got to the hotel pretty quickly. The hotel shuttle to the pier is painless.

I'm retired Navy as well.

When you get a chance go to our Facebook page and look at logos and vote for what you want on the name tag cards. I'm also assuming everyone will have lanyards - some may not be CC members or DVC members. I would recommend them. I have bought them at the .99 store in the past - right now they are out but might have them again before we sail. The name tags are just business size cards to go into the lanyards like the cabin keys.

That was my fault. I misread the info. The Halloween decorations are up as of the 13th, but the party isn't starting til the end of the month. Oh well... We will get to see Haunted Mansion Holiday, which will be awesome.

How 'bout them Noles!!!
The boys do tend push back on their bedtime on vacation. Maybe the time change will counteract this and they will end up going to bed at a reasonable time.

It's a small world (after all!). My mom got a job at UCF and we moved to Orlando in 72. My dad got a job at WDW. I went to UCF for undergrad and we lived in Eastwood before we moved to NC 7 years ago.

We decided to take the sure thing with the OGT before the Military rate came out. We may be a bit more patient in the future. But we still got a really good deal. We had originally booked an inside but are saving money and have an oceanview!

When I saw DAWGS I thought Huskies--UW. We're across Puget Sound from Seattle.

We have good friends in Eastwood. We are headed to nc next month. Sister is in Lake Gaston. We will be visiting our friends on Winston Salem also.
