If/when we book it will be me and DH just relaxing and enjoying the relaxation of doing nothing that we don't want to do.

We're getting excited already!!
How exciting! I hope they give you the time off from work!

I have a question, since you mentioned that you have already done a 2-night.... This is probably just (desperately) wishful thinking, but do they offer Palo brunch on a 2 night? (fingers crossed!)

I just called concierge and they said that YES - there will be a Palo brunch offered on this cruise

Is anybody else planning on doing Palo?

Sorry about not getting back to you right away about Palo...
Usually whenever DCL has an 'at sea' day during the cruise, they will be scheduling meals at Palo.

We haven't decided what options will be open to us- only so many slots available at Palo, but we plan on PIF well before our booking window if we can go.
I 'unofficially' asked my boss about it this morning, and she was very receptive to letting me go.
So we might be able to book tomorrow!

Some fellow Disney cruisers and I just booked this cruise to do a DISmom getaway, B2B behind the DD 5 night! We are so excited! I saw that your signature says you are from Charleston, SC. Me too! Well, technically we live in Mt. Pleasant but how crazy that we will be on the same cruise! Are you doing the double dip 5 nighter as well?
Can't wait to "meet" a local on the cruise.....we might have to form a support group when we return!

Hi all - sadly, my travel partners and I have realized that getting to and from Miami is way too complicated, so we are changing to the Disney Dream - sorry all Hope you still have a great trip and enjoy the new Magic!

Hi Michelle!
So amazing that more than one stateroom for this cruise will have 'neighbors' in them!
Sorry I didn't answer up sooner- we took our annual anniversary trip to NYC last week and I was kind of under the radar.

I'd LOVE to do the 5 nighter as well, but we have a 7 night Fantasy cruise coming up at the end of November! I really didn't want to press my luck with my boss
I like the idea of the support group thing! Is that where we hit the port and then get depressed that it's over?? Sounds like me.

Just an FYI (even though we have a GTY stateroom)...

I just finished doing our check-in AND scored a Palo brunch for our cruise! I figured that we could let others do the dinner, even though when I did a 'curiousity' search, the system would have let me book a dinner also.

As we'll be cruising at the end of November on a 7 nighter- we'll have plenty of time to do a dinner then.

It's FINALLY real- we ARE going on this cruise!!

We are also checked in and booked Palo dinner for night two (we are doing Palo brunch on the 5-night cruise before this cruise, as this cruise is the second leg of our B2B). This Palo dinner is our celebration of our last night as gold Castaway Club status

100 days until we board the Magic (105 days until THIS cruise)! Woo hoo!!
