We're staying here:

Fairfield Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port
2081 Griffin Road
Dania Beach, Florida 33312

in January. I can report about our stay then.

BTW, I will probably be on this cruise, after all. The wedding cruise next September is probably going to be a land-based Florida wedding instead. So, yay! DISCruise, here I come!

I stayed at the Crowne Plaze Fort Lauderdale airport and cruise port. Its literally across the street from the port entrance. There is a restaurant on site and its a nice hotel...but only for one night or if you will have a car. Not a lot around the area for food etc.

Lester's Diner is just a half mile west of the Crowne Plaza. It's not the fanciest place, but the good is pretty good with reasonable prices.

We've stayed at two Hyatt Places- Airport North and Airport South. They are what you'd expect of a Hyatt Place. We preferred the North location much more than the South- it is about 3 minutes from the Port. You can walk to nearby restaurants at both. We got very good deals on Hotwire/Priceline for these hotels, under $89/nt (I think South was cheaper- as it should be).

We also used the Park N Go- totally recommend it for those who might be driving and not taking the Dis transportation.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

If anyone is interested in taking a look at the Oasis, there is a one hour show on tv Tuesday (9/11) all about the ship.

9:00 pm on the Destination channel ( 286 on Directv ).

Hey, John, I've been getting a runtime error when I click on the link to "Click on PRICE to book/hold stateroom and make a reservation." I actually want to book a class of cabin that's not on the list (I did this for PCC 4.0 also). Who would I contact at DU to talk about this? Thanks!

so this is a first for me - super early flight booking....

i just noticed that the airline flights came available for next year, so i just reserved flights for august/september 2013.

Woo hoo!!

(well, the transatlantic segment of the trip - to and from JFK....but that's the difficult part to snag, especially given when rosh hashanah is next year....so now i'm good to go)...

El Al - i didn't check anything else.
I just need to get a flight into and out of the US (especially given that the Jewish New Year is very very early next year (sept 4), so the flights right after the cruise will be completely booked once everyone else who needs to fly at that time notices. and the prices will head into the stratosphere. (even more than they already are )

i checked yestereday and noticed they already have their flights available for booking through sept 9. So i sent an email to my TA with very specific instructions as to which flights to reserve, etc etc.

Does anyone know approximately what time we leave the ship once we're back in Ft. Lauderdale? I'm trying to see if I would be able to leave the ship, get to an airport, fly across the country and check in for the Disneyland Half Marathon in time, all in one day.

They haven't released a real schedule or any official race information yet, but based on what they did this year, I need to get to Disneyland by 5 pm on that Saturday to pick up my race packet, for a very early Sunday morning race. Airline schedules aren't quite that far out yet, but I'm trying to see if it's even geographically possible before I'd need to sign up or not sign up for the race.

And yes, I'm crazy, in case you were wondering. I've been wanting to get my RunDisney Coast-to-Coast medal in 2013, and we get back to Florida on the last day of the Disneyland Half Marathon Expo (unless they change their schedule). If I can't manage it, I'll have to wait until 2014. Not a terrible thing, and probably a smarter plan to wait, but I at least want to investigate the possibility.
