Yes ma'am, I like the way you think! It feels so real now having flights both ways. Now I just need to pay off the cruise. Im waiting for the PIF date in case the price drops though I doubt that ever happens.




Pam, when is our PIF date, do you know?

How long is the layover in Vegas? I hope not too bad. I have enough points for the flight, just need to book it.

1/14/14, I just checked. I keep thinking it'll drop too but it doesn't look like it. You never know though, it could still happen.

Less than hour so just enough time to change planes. Thankfully the airline will deal with the luggage transfer. I actually prefer a longer layover as opposed to shorter. If the arriving flight is more than 15 minutes late, we could miss our connection.

Book it girl!

I wonder how often prices drop? Do we have to keep checking to find out or will Disney notify us? I'll pay the last possible date.

You will have to keep checking yourself. If you booked with DCL directly, call them and have them adjust it. If you booked through a TA, call them to have it adjusted.

The only thing DCL will refund automatically is if the port taxes go down.

Thanks Jill. I am guessing because they already gave us a % off due to canceling, we won't drop lower but ill keep checking.


Do you recall how much our discount was Pam?

It was 25%, but if it drops lower than what we paid we can still rebook at the lower price.

Well, I did a major change yesterday. I changed from BCV to Vero Beach post cruise. I need to change the rental car now. I had invited some friends to join me at Disney, so ran it by them first. But I'm thinking spring break is so crazy busy the beach would be more relaxing. They were all for the beach so it's a win win situation. Just wanted to share my exciting news

Vero looks amazing! What a wonderful change. I'm so excited for you. Have you been? You're crossing them all off your list.

Tell me your hotel deal again. I'm the hunt for a deal.

That sounds cool! I have Vero, HHI and Aulani to cross off my list after this year. You're getting much closer than me!

Thank you I hate to hijack your thread but I had to share the news
Never been to Vero before, it's going to be a scouting mission. When Cynthia wrote about the turtles I knew I had to go. It won't be hatching season but that will be another trip I'm sure, who knows when but it will happen

Oh no, I just went to find that deal again and it's even more expensive... I'm going to have to research hotels again. I kept thinking I had plenty of time to book, ARG!

I'm excited! I have plenty still to stay at. BWV, BLT, HHI, Aulani, and Kidani. I still need to stay at BCV but that's scheduled for May so I'm not counting it. Typing it out makes me realize I need to get a move on!

Hi Jenny I know you probably won't see this until you're back, but cheaptickets has a 20% off sale on hotels. After much deliberation I went with Red Carpet Inn, total of $136.44 with taxes. SAS picks up there and it's close to FLL. I almost went with Motel 6 for $95, not including taxes, but there were a few too many negative reviews. The Holiday Inn I had seen a few months ago for $150 is up to $227, should have grabbed that one before... I almost considered changing my flight to getting in Sunday and just going to the port from the airport, but the earliest SW flight gets in at noon. After getting the bag and the drive to the port it will be 1:30 at the earliest. We have until 4:00 pm to be at the port, but if anything goes wrong I might miss the ship. UGH! The hotel has free cancellation up to 3/27/14 so I can always change if I find a better deal. I kept thinking rates would go down instead of up the closer we got.

Hope you're having the best time at DL!
