It's 3.5 hours of straight driving. I haven't spoken with the bus company about details yet but I assume we will have to build in a rest stop/break along the way so count on at least 4.

But think of how much fun a bus load of DISers will be for 4 hours

Sadly, no.

Think of it as one more incentive for you to move close to WDW

amazing fun John!!!! and if i actually make it to this cruise, i will be so far beyond seventh heaven - i'll float all the way to the ship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i can't imagine anything more fun than 4 hours with disers - wherever it is...on a bus, on a ship, in a plane, on a train (and you can even serve me green eggs and ham)....

Will it be the party bus? And will there be a pole on the bus?

I am sad that the cruise has been moved to my kids first week of school I asked my son if he would be upset for missing the first week of his senior year, he said mom for a cruise no I wouldn't but I am not even going to chance it.

I would agree, missing the first week of school is just too tough. Lucky for us, we go back after Labor Day so Benjamin can sail with us. Otherwise he would have been left behind!!

FYI in RI school is back in on 8/28 which may be why you got better prices this week. I can't believe we are the only state back in school this week.

We're in a suburb of Philly and our kids go back to school for 1 or 2 half days during the last week of August. I think it's ridiculous. Just wait until after Labor Day.
Anyway, I think we are going to book it.

A large majority of Central Indiana schools go back next week! Quite a few townships are adopting a "balanced" calendar, i.e. year-round school.

We're in! Our county in VA is an outlier - we start school the day after Labor Day. As long as that calendar holds for the 2013-2014 school year, we're good to go!

We are now pondering whether we're better off doing a pre-night stay at the Swan/Dolphin and taking the bus down and then back to MCO or flying into Fort Lauderdale and doing a shorter transfer from there. My guess is that Dreams isn't going to be organizing transfers from the Fort Lauderale airport to the port and back - John, is that right?

Just weighing 8 hours on a bus with the kiddos...like ya do.
