I just booked our flight via AirTran yesterday (ATL/ORL/ATL) for $197 ea. roundtrip. Booked Disney ground transportation both ways for an additional $140. I'm sure there are other perks for booking air through Disney, but this saved us a few hundred dollars, which I am sure we'll spend in the spa.

I booked my flight through points from Southwest. Cost 0. Adds to my Disney fund.

Just wondering what the count is so far for cabins and kids? I bought some neat items yesterday for the FE gifts and I want to make sure I am in the ballpark by our current count.

We just booked our cruise yesterday. While we haven't talk much about the FE, I'm sure my daughter would want us to participate. How many have signed up so far?

Smile Lanyards?

Does anyone know if cruisers receive a lanyard? We're bringing pins (we LOVE pins) and wondered if there was a special cruise lanyard.

Question Onboard discount with Disney VISA?

Does anyone know what discounts are given on ship when paying with a Disney VISA? Is there a discount on the gift shop, spa, drinks, etc?

Do you have to have the card on your person, or can you just set up your on-ship account with your Disney VISA to receive the discount on various purchases?

Sorry for all the questions - I know there are some very experienced cruisers, so trying to soak up all of this knowledge.

Thanks!
Rita and Rachael

Hello all! We just booked this cruise today. It'll be me, DW, DD Jordan(11), DS Jaret(8), DSisIL, DBroIL, DN Ansleigh(2), 2 DF's, their DS Zach(7), DS Zander(3), and DD Zoe(1).

For my family this will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. For everyone else in our party it'll be there 2nd. This was a very spur of the moment booking for us but we were missing Castaway Cay and it beats a weekend in Panama City.

Can't wait.

You'll each receive a lanyard based on your Castaway Club level (Silver, Gold, Platinum)
