FYI - The Ft Lauderdale airport is VERY close to Port Everglades. A taxi from the airport to the port would be between $10 to $15

I just saw this on facebook. I can't believe our luck. A DIS trip, with a great price, on a huge ship, during school break.

I remember the DISCON days. I wanted to go on one of those trips soooo bad, but they were never during school breaks.

I go back to work the day after Labor Day and the students return on Thursday.

What are the deposit requirements for this cruise and final payment date?

Here's the link to the pricing page - http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com...ions/rccl1.cfm - which also includes the deposit guidelines.

Balance is due 6/1/2013.

I'm very excited, too. Looking at some pre-cruise nights at Disney. Can we use Magical Express if we book at Swan/Dolphin?

If not, and we choose to stay elsewhere, can we still get the transfer to the port?

Thanks.

The adult solarium will be my home away from home for 7nights.

I was wondering if I would be able to get a post cruise transfere to a different resort than my pre cruise transfer.

I will be arrive the day before staying at the Swan and using the transfer to the port. I would like to stay two nights post cruise and take advantage of magical express for my return trip to the airport.

Thanks! We'll probably be staying at Port Orleans-French Quarter, then.
