It was like late 5's, 6's, and 7's last time I was there and I can get soda on sale here for 3 for 11 or 4 for 10 this past 2 weeks.

Just asking cause my kids are soda drinkers (bad habit) and since I'm driving..... ...and have tons of Styrofoam coolers.
** I am here right now and Publix has them at 4 for $12 ( 12 pack ) **

Josee.

Soda is free on board... why bring? Save that cooler space for adult bevs
(btw, no judgment here, as I am planning to bring bottled water)

Absolutely not bringing any soda on board. You're right it's free!

This question is about before and after the cruise. We are in the parks, doing Gaylord Ice and Universal. So, just wondering if Publix and Winn Dixie still have soda priced high? Or is there a state tax on it or something. It really was outrageous last time. I didn't wanna buy any!

Change of plans

We just made a quick itinerary change tonight and I am so excited!

I changed our flight to Florida to land in Orlando instead of Fort Myers and now we are going to MVMCP on Friday December 20th. The change meant a $350 refund on our flights a $200 reduction in car rental fees and a $50 difference in the cost for taxis to the port in MIA. So in total about a $600 savings and an unexpected trip to Magic Kingdom before heading down to SW Florida for Christmas. The kids have no idea, now we have to decide about whether to tell them or keep this a secret.... hmmm. I need to book a hotel or rent DVC points for 1 night as we want to stay nearby MK that night.

Off to plan some more! Yay!!! I know almost nothing about the MVMCP so I will have lots to do.

It's so funny how our Disney trips just come together like this all the time. Amazing! Pixie dust or what?!

Just added a request to join the Facebook page

A friend of mine wanted to get on board - TONS of rooms available, but the price was nearly $500 more for the same class room? Makes no sense?

Did anyone read Deb from allears.net review on the ship? Seems there are still a few details to be worked out? Hmmmmmm....

How can you tell there are tons of rooms available?

YAY! THat's great!

But good luck trying to rent DVC I'm having no joy at all for the 27th to the 2nd. It's waiting list only.

I'm glad the ship is not so full yet. Although its puzzling why they didin't offer an IGT price.

I'm sure the ship will be in good shape by the time we sail. All the kinks will be worked out.

Josee.
Ok, then. Maybe it was just that week in April then. We went the same week, 2 years in a row.

Sorry for assuming the worst.


btw I checked availability on this cruise by putting in different kinds of reservations. There are only cat 9';s and cat. 5's available for a family of 4 but a family of 3 still has alot open except Concierge. However, a family of 3 is now paying what I paid for 4. So yeah, price went up.

Good point, I wont bother then. We will probably stay at one of the offsite hotels in Lake Buena Vista right accross from DTD. It will be close enough to the parks without a ton of driving after the party. We are flying down that day so it will be a tiring day but lots of fun too.

There were not a "ton" of options available, even for parties of 2 and 3, as I worked pretty hard to find two staterooms reasonably near one another only about two weeks ago... and cruisefish says we only have 40% of categories available... which indicates pretty high occupancy.
