I really can't say in a open forum. I hope you understand. Also if this helps. Formal nights will be 3 and 13. Semi formal will be night 8 and pirates will be night 9. DCL will tell you that part. Also don't go by the navigators from Decembers cruise for menus. There is a slight difference.

No worries.

I assumed they wouldn't be identical, but cool. Thanks for all the info (at least what you can give).

You are welcome. Any other questions feel free to ask. Oh I will leak one thing. Expect a special east meets west in the MDR for dinner on the canal day. On the 3 that I have taken on DCL they have done this and they will be again. Chances are we will be able to keep these.

How long it takes to get to SNA from DL depends a little on the time of day/day of the week. If you're going at rush hour on a work day its probably an hour. If off-times its probably 30 minutes.
Thank you. I will look into that and see about timings for all the flights.

You can get Super Shuttle, Karmel Shuttle or a car service to get you there. I would think a taxi would not even be too much. I did a mapquest search and by surface streets it is less than 14 miles, by freeway less than 20 miles from Grand Californian to Long Beach airport. Both ways are about a half hour.
Thanks Angie for the info. I do remember PJ wanting to go to Sees Candy!!!!

We would like to get these for our kids and then purchase a photo matte for it that we'd leave at Guest Services for the characters to sign. Thanks in advance for any feedback you might have!

Here's a link to the certificate for those of you who haven't seen them:
http://www.tiffanypublishing.com/certs/order_ditch.asp

We did get the Order of the ditch. I think it is a great reminder. Get everything printed on the certificate apart from the captain's name and then hand it in to Guest Services(or take to the Captain's signing session) and get him to sign it. You can get a topless mermaid or choose covered!!!

I seem to remember it came in a triangular tube but things might have changed.

Looked at the certificates and wondered what was special about them. Wouldn't somebody be able to design a really nice one, with special Disney touches, themselves? We've got a lot of talented people on this thread and on the DIS in general.

Have a happy birthday yourself! We just got back from our WDW trip for my birthday. Had to get it in before DH surgery. Pretty sure we have been on a couple cruises together. We've been on two TAs and I know we did an eastern in Oct '11

If you add a grocery stop, I think it will take you more than half an hour.

Nancy - thanks for the feedback! We're staying at the HIE on State Road 84 - Google Maps says about a 35 min drive - but depending on how long we spend at the grocery and/or if we share the shuttle - we'll prob be arriving closer to noon.

Our PAT is currently 11:30 - is it worth changing it to noon, or just leave it as is?

A quick dress code question - are shorts OK in the MDR for breakfast/lunch?

I usually ask politely if I can keep menus...I have two from Hawaiian cruise. Sometimes are not too happy to give it to you, but they never said no.
