Thank you so much for letting us know it was on..
If you find out how to get tickets in advance let me know. We also didn't have the time to wait on the long line so we just skipped it. Only saw it from the outside on the bus.

I know it's possible to purchase tickets on-line in advance, but there are still lines once you get in, if you want to go up in the elevators, with waits up to a couple of hours. I don't recall all the details about the elevators and what you see from the upper levels. I think I read about it in one of Rick Steves' books. We'll probably just get the basic go-inside ticket and look around a bit. Unless we win the lotto and go a week ahead of time, then I'll hire a guide as see everything!

I am so excited. Between last night and today I read this whole thread. I think I have the tastings I want to go to. However, I have to hit 10posts before I can PM.

Starting to look into FE's.

Have a great night.

Kathy

Don't worry Sarah, Andrea is on the wait list

As we've said, if we get a full second list, we can ask DCL if they will run a second day for Champagne Girls but it's entirely at their discretion if they can do it

Lastly, I am so happy to be going on this cruise with so many Disney lovers like me from all over the world.
Hi, just saw your post, I'll add you to the CG list, but could you PM me your details too please thanks.

For those who have signed up for either the rum cocktail tasting or the mixology event, would you please look over the lists and let me know if I've gotten your correct information? If not, please pm me with the corrections. I would appreciate it! Thanks for the wonderful interest everyone has shown signing up for all these events......looks like a bunch of people who know how to have fun to me!!!
Thanks Claire !! : :

I noticed some previous posted regarding the Sangrada Familia Cathedral and this is something that should be on everyones itenerary. I understand that some of you will be only staying a day or two prior to the cruise and visiting Sangrada Familia is not a disappointment. I took this tour in 2010 and it was amazing! I can't wait until 2014 because I will be back again. I also visited Gaudi's Park Guell, Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. The two casa's are within walking distance of La Rambla area. I hope those of you interested get the opportunity to visit Gaudi's works.

I second this! Gaudi was a genius and the pride of Catalonia (Barcelona is the capital of that area of Spain which has a culture different from the rest of Spain).

Barcelona has so much atmosphere, blending the new with the centuries old; be sure to do a ramble in the Gothic Quarter.

I heartily recommend that you read 'Shadow of the Wind' by Carlos Ruiz Zafon before going to Barcelona. It is a great novel set in 1940s Barcelona--part history, mystery, romance, thriller. Last time we were there, we had a great time doing a walk following the places in the book. I made a great scrapbook of black and white pictures with quotes from the book (I know, I can be a bit obsessive )

Secret Mickey is a take off on a Secret Santa, all who are interested submit your name to the person running it. She will at some point give you a name for another person who whats to do it also. Usually you tell what kind of things you like as in Mickey, Princesses, sports, and so on. There is a limit as to the amount to spent for your Secret Mickey. I think last time it was $25.00 and NO MORE, it can be one gift or more, it's up to you. Its a lot of fun to find a gift in your FE that is from the Secret Mickey. We meet at some point and "disclose who we are"

Hey Kathy! I just noticed your message about the tastings. I'm organizing the rum cocktail tasting and the mixology events. I didn't see LovingDisneyinCT on my lists, then I checked on the first page and didn't see your name. I'm not trying to be nosey, just don't want you to miss out if your want to attend these tastings. Did you send me a pm for either of the tastings I'm taking names for?

Have you read Carlos Luis Zafon's 'The Angel's Game' (2008) and 'The Prisoner of Heaven' (2011)?

Hi Susan,
If you are looking into a hotel in San Juan, and tentatively starting to make a list, I would LOVE to be on the list. I am hoping to spend at least 1, if not 2 nights post cruise. Thanks for looking into all this!!

Thanks for the great suggestions here. Will be spending a few days here with Holly prior to the cruise, and while I think we have some ideas, those ideas from people who have visited before are great
