I can hear the crickets chirping (Jiminy of course)...

There has been recent talk of upgrading our stateroom from an inside to a verandah....not quite sure yet if it would truly be worth the cost...but a verandah would be nice.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend.

How much of a price difference is it for you? For me it was only $200 so that made it easy. On the Hawaii cruise it was close to a $3000-4000 difference so that made it harder.

It would be about a 600 dollar difference...If we do decide to upgrade it will probably be in a month or so, the price might change by then, who knows. Either way I am a happy camper! Now I just have to get all that last minute Christmas shopping done!

Hi, everyone. Booked this cruise on opening day! Going with hubby, son, DIL and granddaughter (will be 6)! This is our second Disney cruise...did Alaska on the Wonder last August. I had the best time seeing my granddaughter have the best time! We're in Cat 4A in cabins 9600 and 9602 (connecting).

We just learned about the FE and would love to get involved in that!

Also we want to book a pre-cruise Disney World package to get in Magic Kingdom and Epcot (along with Universal for Harry Potter). Our TA said bookings don't open up for 2014 until this summer.

Welcome to our group!


We decided that for Christmas this year we will get each other the wdw trip tacked on to the end of the cruise. So as long as our schedules allow it we are 100% doing wdw after... Harry potter would be awesome to see, but I think I will just wait for them to build it over here in California.

Planning a quick Disneyland trip for January. Super happy that I will get to see it decorated for the holidays!

For our pre-cruise WDW stay: Has anyone stayed at The Art of Animation Resort Suites? We have 4 adults and one 6 year old. How far is it from The Magic Kingdom and Epcot?

Hope everyone's Holiday and New Year is great...a year from now we'll be getting ready for our cruise!!

Thanks, Bonnie

This holiday season has me really excited about it! Really hoping to stay at WDW for a few nights before. Who is going to WDW before the cruise? Where are you staying?

We're planning on doing WDW before the cruise. Waiting to hear from TA for her suggestions, but I went online and am interested in The Art of Animation because they have suites. Open for any suggestions!

That resort looks nice! You could also look into renting DVC points for a villa.

It isn't that close to MK and Epcot. It is right next to Pop Century.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. we are doing wdw post cruise...thinking it will be crazy with the new year if we go before. Does anyone know if the ship will still be decorated for Christmas when we go? I know that at Disneyland January 6 weekend is the last weekend for holidays...not sure about the cruise line.

I got Disney Cranium for Christmas and it is so much fun! We just played it the other night and it was fun, of course the bf and I won.

WDW is decorated until the 8th this year. I hear the first cruise after the NYE cruise is stripped of all decorations though. . We are going to keep the pre cruise WDW plans because DS goes back to school the Mon we get back.
