On a good note when I spoke with DU I asked if there are any rumblings for October promos. She advised that they haven't heard of anything yet but that there was a lot of inventory and that it wasn't moving. Fingers crossed that they offer a KSF or similar.

I'm starting to watch the Fantasy sailing on 10/19. This may work better for my family. No double dip to CC and first sail on Magic post refurb but I wouldn't have to deal with transportation and the long drive with two little ones to Miami. It would be far more convenient to WDW.
Just be aware that the only discounts on the Fantasy have been the *GT rates. There have not yet been any KSF, Fl Resident or military rates, etc. yet. Sure, they could offer them at any time, but the chances are better for discounts on the Magic after dry dock (also not moving that much inventory).

So 4n itinerary F shows 2 days back to back at CC. Schedule shows 8:30 to 4:45 for the first day and 8:30 to 4:30 for the second.

Kind of pointless to sail out and come back again, don't you think? Or would they actually stay docked all night?

One of my favorites was a B2B we did with two 5N cruises. One was a double dip so we ended up with 3 Castaway Cay days! It was great!

Newbie question-- on B2B cruises, do you have to get off the ship and check back in at the end of the 1st cruise before the start of the 2nd??? Or can you just stay on the ship???

Just wondering. . . .

You get off for about 30-45 minutes and wait in the terminal while they clear the ship. You then re-board just before they let the new passengers in the terminal.

That's do-able!

One more question: Do you have to pack up and take your luggage with you?? Or can you leave it in the cabin if you have the same cabin for both cruises?

No need to pack up if you have the same cabin. And once back on board you have access to your room right away...though they do ask that once other passengers start boarding you either stay in your room until all rooms are ready or stay out. I would guess just not to cause trouble with new passengers wanting their rooms.

If you change rooms you leave your luggage with guest services and pick it up when you reboard.

Other threads say that they do leave the dock and sail around in the night. Because, apparently, at night there are bugs that come out on CC, and if they stayed at the dock the bugs would fly around the ship.

I'm glad they leave the dock. Especially b/c I quite like the feeling of the ship moving while I sleep. It's like being rocked to sleep again.
