We keep telling ourselves we are going to do something after our next cruise, other than drive straight home. Kids are off school Friday anyway so we figured why not

This time in two weeks we will be on board the Disney Dream!!

If you are going to WDW before the cruise where are you staying and what park(s) are you visiting? We will be arriving in WDW around 12:00 Saturday afternoon. We are staying at the Polynesian and we're going to be at magic kingdom all day.

After the cruise we are heading to POR (hoping for an alligator bayou room) and we will visit EPCOT on the 2nd and Animal kingdom on the 3rd. Then it's onto the Fantasy on the 4th.

They will reserve some palo times for on board scheduling. As soon as you get on board head to the place where you take care of dining - I'm not sure where it is (maybe d lounge) and see what is available.

Where are you from?
We are from Brampton, Ontario; that's just north of Toronto.

How long have you been cruising?
We started in 2001 on the Disney Wonder. This will be our 10th DCL cruise! We're on Allure of the seas the week before our Dream cruise; just wanted to try it out! We've been on 2 RCI cruises in addition to our Allure cruise. We really like RCI but DCL is our favourite! We've booked Fantasy already for August2014; then we will have cruised on all the Disney ships!

Have you booked any excursions?
No excursions but we plan to go to the Sheraton Hotel in Nassau and use their beach. We're just taking the jitney (local bus) to the hotel. And we've booked the jet skis at Castaway Cay. First time for both activities.

What are you looking forward to the most?
Enjoying the cruise with my DS20 as he hasn't been able to travel with us for a few years due to work. Also can't wait to be on the beach at Castaway Cay!

What are you least looking forward to on the cruise?
Waking up early on the last day and then having to leave the ship.

Looking at pictures of the Queen's staircase and the fort is making me want to spend an hour or so walking around that area in Nassau. We (husband and I) will just walk there from the ship (looks like 15 or so minutes). Is anyone interested in going with us?

My DH the kids and I (5 of us) have been talking about going for a walkabout, I have been looking at the Queens staircase. We might be "in" for the walk, if u don't mind us dragging the kids along on your adult outing.

I am trying so hard to keep our secret cruise as well. She hs been helping me with the FE gifts, and she asks a lot of questions. So I have had to tell a few white lies. Lord forgive me. Lol.
