Evelyn, thanks for the tip about PIA, and the shuttle from MDW to ORD. I did not know that existed, and I was picturing struggling into a taxi with the kids and luggage. Yuck. I will certainly check their prices once the booking window begins.

Well, we have booked this cruise again, because it was my favorite cruise of all time when we went on the last one!! Still not 100% sure we will make it, I need to look at the airfare when it comes out in a few months, but I am really hoping it works out! All new ports too, how great is that??

So, it will be:

Myself, Danae, age 49 at the time we sail;

My DM, Phyllis, age 81 at the time we sail;

My DS, Jonas, age 10 at the time we sail;

My DS, Carter, age 7 at the time we sail

We splurged on a verandah room this time, #6544.

I need to get signed up for a bunch of things - FEs, of course, Palo brunch and some mixology!!!

I have not read through the 113 pages, so have we got a name for this cruise? Anyone know what new things might be added to the Magic in drydock that we can look forward to?
YAY, you are back..good to see ya

WARNING: I DO NOT PLAY FAIR!!


Not when it comes to this trip. Or anything else I want for that matter.

I found this on ebay and knew Dennis would love it (because he's really 4-years-old):



So I bought it. And it came in today. And when I gave it to him, I said, "NOW can I put the deposit on the cruise?" And he said, "Okay."

I still have to wait til the new 0% interest card comes in, but at least I don't have to be sneaky about it.

It's about time, though. I'm getting a bit tired of getting up at 12:30am every four days to put another hold on the thing.


Now, about that little dog at the Humane Society who's been waiting a very long time for a home...

Someone posted earlier that they might be hesitant to fly them but I am quite comfortable traveling on PIA, they fly out of O'Hare every day and have for years, they have never had even a hiccup to my knowledge. I found them to be extremely nice and very accommodating. Since I've been in the Airline Industry for 30 years I kinda know what's happening. . I'll get more information on the shuttle between the airports for you.

Are you planning to fly into Barcelona a few days early? Don't know what I will do yet but will arrive at least 2 days early, ya just never know what weather and such can be.

Yes, Dennis likes to pretend to be a "grown up," and I'm the one who's always saying, "hey, let's do this." I usually wait til he's vulnerable (aka, slightly inebriated), then spring some clever toy or cute picture or pitiful story on him to get him to go along. This is pretty much how I've managed to get every vacation out of him for the past 5 years, not to mention all our dogs.

I'm not proud of this... No, wait, yes I am.

But honestly, it's for his own good. The poor man would never get a vacation if it weren't for me, so I'm really doing him a favor. And things always do seem to work out. Somehow we find the money and it's all good in the end.

Life is way too short, y'know?

Why, thank you! I have learned a few good tricks over the years.

Dennis secretly loves the flamingo hat. He wishes I would let him wear it.

Welcome to your 'little' group.

So DH is Jimmy but what is your name? Earlier on we were telling each other a little about ourselves and our previous Disney holidays and we would love to know more about you too...

Once you have done 10 posts you can start to personal message and perhaps join some of the organised events that will be going on during the WBTA 2014. It's easy to get ten posts - some people just post one or two words at a time!!!

We are Sue and Richard welcome again

The reviews vary but seem decent, so I asked around where I work. My DH had a strongly negative response (for mainly personal reasons, but also the whole terrorist state thing), an Afghani doc said it wouldn't be his first choice, but if it were that much cheaper he would consider it and the Iranian Midwife said she had never heard of them. I didn't find any actual Pakistani coworkers to ask .
So with DHs response, plus having to add the fare from SFO/Oak, I don't think it would work out for us, since it looks like fares from SFO through NY are around $1100 and my father could meet us in NY from IAD for the long leg.
With regard to PIA. They hold one of the worst safety records. A friend of mine works at the airport near to me in the UK. And PIA has been warned numerous times for being overweight. Their planes have used all of the runway for takeoff. And have been known to overshoot the runway on landing. At one point. Their landing rights were revoked until they sorted this out.
Personally. I'd pay a little more. And land safely. Then pay a little less. And end up in a lake in one of the UKs national parks!
Just saying!

This'll be my 4th transatlantic with Disney. You'll have no problems with the flight. (Just not PIA)
My flights are Manchester UK to Barcelona. Puerto Rico to New York. New York to Manchester. I use Skyscanner to check out flights. You get some good prices on there. It's just I've got to wait till October before I can get the right prices for next September.
