Iowa! Des Moines specifically. We were going to have a big wedding and all that, but realized that $10k could be better spent going to WDW, DL and Disney cruises LOL So we're "eloping" (and taking our best friends) and going to Iowa to get hitched, then going on the cruise!

Hi and welcome. This is our 2nd Disney cruise and we're back on the Wonder. Very excited. We have 1 daughter who will be 8 by the time we cruise.

Question for CaymanJet Please

Was just able to log on and complete our online registration and get the PAT (port arrival time), although we have done a lot of cruising this is our first Disney and so we are newbie's here, this was the earliest date we could complete the registration but was thrilled there were still early check in times available, even the coveted 11am. We have already booked a couple more after this one (Feb on the Fantasy) and then next May the Pacific Coastal Wonder ending in Vancouver. The information on these boards is amazing.

I am hoping CaymanJet, that you might be able to share a bit about what is involved in traveling from Vancouver to Victoria (for those not using a car?). Flight routes will be available in July and it would be great to extend our trip and see Victoria. I had looked before and it did not appear that it was direct- not just a simple ferry from one port to the other. Then I noticed a thread on the disboards that said something about 'only on the day a ship is in port' there is another option- only one time slot- have you ever traveled to Vancouver without using your own vehicle- hoping there is something not too complicated since we would be hauling our luggage with us, 2 lively grandparents, adult daughter and grandson who will be 4 then. Anything you can share would be a huge help. Or if anyone out there can share some insight? We are from Southern CA and this will be our first trip to Canada, and first of many Disney cruises- thanks! Already working on our door decorations- can you tell we are excited.

Thank you- love these dis boards

That was perfect, I had more or less thought it got rather involved since we would be towing all our luggage (we had missed out going last year when the Wonder actually stopped in Victoria), the pictures of downtown Vancouver and Victoria are stunning. Your link was a huge help and I just also found a dis thread where FergusBC posted a link for Pacific Coach which apparently they operate on cruise ship days with a coach transfer from the cruise terminal to Tsawwassen Ferry and take you right to downtown Victoria.

One more question if I may- if we stay in Victoria a couple days- recommendations for getting back to Southern CA- is flying from Victoria a good option or the airport remote to downtown if you don't have a car (love that Vancouver has an overhead metro right to the airport) or do most people prefer trying to reach Seattle by train or bus to fly onward, or back to Vancouver? Any tips on options from those in the know?

I am happy to reciprocate if anyone is thinking of doing the Wonder next May from San Diego to Vancouver- I can help with anything about San Diego- port is just a few minutes from the airport, Sea World is pretty close, we have a really nice shore promenade where the ship docks, etc. What little I know about Canada would fit in Mickeys ear :0) Again, Thank You!

Quick thought! You know this cruise starts in YVR and ends in LAX. Are you asking for info pertaining to your cruise next year? Just making sure.

Will you be heading to DL after the cruise?
Yes. We are going to spend a couple of days at Disneyland after our cruise. We are DVC members and needed to use up some points before they expire.

kanabebug, yes I did realize- this cruise we are flying up to Vancouver and arriving early to get a chance to see this city, but I am coming up on when airlines will start to post their rates for our Disney Wonder next May when we do the reverse itinerary- so I was hoping someone familiar with Victoria might be able to share some tips before I buy the air and lose my wiggle room for planning. We truly would love to stay post cruise next year and hopefully visit Victoria when we disembark and the dis boards have been great for exchanging and sharing tips. So Any suggestions out there? The transfer to Victoria is perfect and had it not been for someone posting- we would not have known about the coach/ferry on the port day. But what might work well for returning to the US as we live in Southern CA, return to Vancouver, fly from Victoria airport or train/bus to Seattle? What have others found that worked out well, they enjoyed... or from past experience would recommend we avoid trying?

There are flights out of Victoria. I just checked for this summer and Alaska/horizon flies to SEA then to SAN. I would wait till the fares for your time period are out and then compare prices.
