Has anyone booked a hotel yet? I didn't care for the choices on hotels.com right now. We always book Radisson at the Port.

We were planning on just staying at the Hyatt MCO and taking the Disney shuttle the next morning. How do you get to the Radisson? There are only 3 of us so using a car service seems to end up being more than the DCL transportation.

We flew once and rented a car. Keeping the rental during the cruise was cheaper that time. We have driven twice. I think we will again make the 19 hour drive stopping for a few days in Destin, FL to relax before the cruise. That is about 13 hours from here then 6 to the port.

Yay! A group! I just booked this cruise on board the Fantasy last week. It will be me and my 7 year old son. My brother and his family might come but I don't know yet. Can't wait to go back!

Going to book the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge in WDW with my DVC points on 1/30. Plan to stay 4 nights precruise and take DCL transport to port the day we sail. We stayed there for 3 nights before our cruise last week. It was heavenly!

Just last Saturday I got a Hyatt day room and it was great! I really liked the Hyatt MCO. I might do that again depending on how late our flight leaves on debarkation day.

We will probably drive down and park in the garage again. It was $75 for the 4 night cruise but we really liked being able to get right in our own car to head home. Of course I had to be at work the next day, which won't be the case coming home on a Saturday, yay

Another Christmas surprise trip here. When we booked a dummy date on the Dream last summer the girls knew it would be moved to 2015, but not when, they think summer or Dec. The subterfuge has already begun, lol, I have to be evasive anytime they bring up "our next cruise."

When we leave the girls will be 16, 10, & 10, but one will turn 11 on the ship. We were going to go in Dec 2015 when they would both be 11 and Edge eligible, but Disney changed their early booking rules. :-( Now I just hope the amount of preteens on ship is low enough that both of the younger two can check it out.

We didn't participate in FE last time, and I'm not sure if we will this time. It looks fun, but both my husband and I are in grad school, so time and funds.....

You work yourself up more than it really is, and when it's over you think, huh

FE- I'll make a sign up as it gets a little closer, say at 6 months? I would recommend closing it about 30 days ahead. I'll make a spreadsheet with everyone's info, and I will email the link to the participants (some don't want their kids' names or cabin number easily available on the Dis).

When it gets time, I'll want the following information:
Names of everyone in the cabin
Ages of kids
Cabin number
Email address
Food allergies/special requests (such as gluten free, no alcohol, etc)

I'll also send out a map before the cruise with all the participating cabins highlighted, it makes finding some of the inside cabins much easier!

I'm already thinking of my gifts!
