I have a disembarkation day question for the experienced Disney Cruise set! We have the early dinner seating, and as you know, that means a very early breakfast time on the last day. It was too hard on the kids and we let them sleep through it and hit the buffet instead, but they were sad to not be able to say one last goodbye to their meal hosts. How flex are the staff on letting us do the later breakfast? Anyone have this experience? Thanks!

Super Shuttle will be right there waiting for you if you make a reservation. DCL transport would be easy, but depending on your flight time....you will have to wait for the bus to fill up with DCL. Super Shuttle will take you when you want to go.

No docs for us either yet.
Yep.

Explain and ask your servers the night before. There are lots of people that do not come to breakfast, so there should be seating available. My guess is that if you tell the servers that the kids were disappointed that they did not get to say a last goodbye before they will gladly have you join them for late seating breakfast.

Our cruise docs arrived on Monday, YAY! Hope we receive our room assignment in the next couple weeks. We're going to have so much fun

Paid too much $ to expedite passport renewals After we got passports for the girls, I completely forgot our renewals 'til yesterday! The post office passport clerk had a litany of DCL complaints. No casino, no late night bars, too many kids, and "NO HOT CHICKS." (it was a little odd)

LMAO! That is the funniest dcl complaint I have ever heard. I have never seen this as a category ranking for a cruise line. All the travel review sites should take note.

*snort*
Those are exactly the same reasons I choose DCL. If I need to avoid those elements, I head to Vegas.

Just saying part of the reason I love DCL so much is the fact there is no casino. I always say the night life is what you make it. I have meet some great friends I still talk to this day that I have meet down in the bar.

We got our stuff today. I know this is going to make me done enemy's but I really don't see what the big deal about the docs are. They tell me nothing I haven't either printed or emailed myself. People say it makes the cruise seem that much closer, but it seemed like that to me when I did my online stuff.

We got our docs too yesterday. When the room assignments finally come in for everybody I'm going to be super busy adding them to the FE list

Reminder that tomorrow is the last day to sign up for FE

I'm sure most are busy getting ready for Easter dinner and such. We decided to keep it low key this year since we have so much stuff coming up next month. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!
