Personally, I think big changes on the Magic is a sure thing, but that's just me! I've never done a back to back, so I'm not sure how simple or painful that is, but I bet there are threads on the subject. I am sure this will be a really special cruise, full of surprises! The Fantasy is amazing as well, you can't really go wrong either way!

It was ~$1200 for 2A 1C in a 7A, which is how much we paid for our 5A FLR rates on the Dream 3-night in Feb. The Oct 2013 Fantasy cruise we are currently booked on is about $3100. The 5-night double dip in the Magic in a 7A is ~$2400 (not including to 10% off I'd get for moving my OBB). So, I figure ~$3400 for the 5-night DD + the 2-night B2B; only ~$300 more than the cost of what were paying for the Fantasy.

I don't think we are going to switch DH & DD are the voices of reason. That is usually the week DD's school Fall Festival, Red Ribbon week, Pumpkin Patch & Pride Prowl. Plus soccer begins as well. If she missed all that, she'd be crushed. She's been on 6 DCL cruises (and going in her 7th in 81 days), so for her, she would actually choose school activities over the cruise because we cruise often. I'm not taking her out of school anymore after next year anyways (ok, I will if DCL does a southern route ). The amount of homework she had from missing Kindergarten last week was WILD! Plus, vacations are unexcused.

I'm sad. I miss the Magic. I love double dips to CC. You guys will have a fabulous time!

Our first cruise was a Double Dip at CC on the Magic in 2006.
Been "Hook"ed ever since!

CONGRATS! Have fun!

Thank you! It was a really special experience. If you saw the Golden Mickeys, you actually probably WOULD remember me! Haha.. Spoiler Alert! ...I played the stage manager turned award show host, Ensign Benson, who wins the final Golden Mickey at the end and has all her dreams come true, of course, haha. That's Disney magic for you! I can't say who my other character was, but if you heard the name, it would probably ring a bell.

We LOVED that show!! Ok, we loved them all, but when we were onboard in 2011 they weren't doing the Golden Mickeys anymore!?!?!? Why did they drop that show??

They still do it! It just isn't on all the ships all the time. They have 7 or 8 shows that I know of, but only 3 at a time per vessel, and they switch em up from time to time.
