Hi all! My info is correct in the list. I, too, am waiting for the airfare to look reasonable but I'm nervous that it won't go down. I am playing the waiting game also. Southwest is our last resort (out of Philly-we live in NJ) but I detest the cattle call seating.
Ah well. I can't believe we are at less than 6 months! Yahoo!!

Luvbuggy!

Thumbs up

Hi everyone...we're new to the DIS....just like to say our family..myself, DH and son (8) are going on our 1st Disney cruise April 14th, 2007 Eastern. We've anxiously been waiting to go on another cruise. We sailed RCL Majesty Western in 1995 and RCL Monarch Southern in 1997. We've been to Disney World countless times and thought now is the time that DS would enjoy a cruise. I've noticed there are quiet a few Bostonian's going this week too. Can't wait to cruise!

Hi Everyone....we're new to the Dis and wanted to say our family...myself, DH and son (8) will be going on our first Disney Cruise on April 14, 2007 Eastern. We have been anxiously waiting to go on another cruise. We have sailed RCL Majestey Western in 1995 and RCL Monarch Southern in 1997. Now that DS is older, we felt this would be a good time to go on the Disney Magic. I've noticed that there are quite a few Bostonians going this week too. Can't wait to cruise!

....And some Cape Codders!

Have you booked your flights yet? Or are you like me waiting for Jetblue to come to their senses or SW to open up? I would much rather fly out of Providence but haven't had the opportunity yet!

We also have to hit the parks a little bit with every cruise. Every time I'm like, "Ok! We just doing the cruise.." And then kids talk me into more. This time I got talked into the Nick hotel before the cruise. I'll need to relax after that!

Welcome! We are too from Massachusetts and my DS will be almost 8 when we sail.

Pershing...
I watched SW flights open up for the Feb. school vacation. I was online within 10 mins of the dates opening up. I think the prices automatically default to the higher prices. The prices were all at the maximum price or close. Good luck getting your airfare.

disneyfanatic3166 - Thank you for adding my family to the list. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Pershing - my son Tyler I'm sure would like to meet your son as well on the cruise. Have you stayed at the Nickelodean Hotel before? We stayed there 9 days in September 2005. My son LOVED it! He asks all the time to go back. If you haven't already stayed there rest assured your kids will have a great time. Of course we HAD to stay in a Spongebob room which we found to be clean and very spacious. If you have any questions regarding the Nick please ask me. Enjoy your stay! As for my flights....I decided to book the flights on my own instead of booking it as a package. We've never gone on vacation during April school vacation week....and I now know why...everyone else is trying to get to Orlando that week too. I've looked into Jet Blue Yikes....the rate I got was really high. I'm hoping the rates on Southwest out of Manchester, NH will be better.

Those of you from Massachusetts, what town are you from....We live in Methuen, MA

disneyfanatic3166- we are from western Mass, East Longmeadow to be exact. My sister-in-law just moved to Wellesley, I had an uncle in Franklin and grew up in Canton.

We have traveled on April vacation before and not had such high airfare.This year Easter is the weekend before Patriots Day so I think we may find a good fare for the return but not for the flight down. Maybe we should start a convoy! (Or does that date me!) We are planning on driving but praying for a ding fare from SWA from Hartford, Albany or Providence.

Wow! REALLY small world!

Yogibigdog - I'm sure I've seen your mother around, which elementary school did you go to?

Tyna - Tell your SIL Welcome to Wellesley! She should consider joining the Wellesley Newcomers Club, we joined 6 years ago when we moved here, and it was much fun.

Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust to all of you who still need airplane tickets! Good luck!

We just moved from Orleans to Eastham. Still getting settled. I'm holding on to this cruise by the skin of my teeth with our new mortgage payment. My one saving grace is that most of the trip is already paid for. It doesn't help that my car keeps breaking down. If I had any sense, I'd ditch the trip and buy a new car......but apparently I don't! Have any sense that is.

Saving for the airfare is my last hurtle. You're right about the way down being more expensive that the way back, tyna. When Southwest opens up, I'm going to buy just the way down and hope for a ding! Then use the credit towards booking the way back. It's a tricky plan, but one I hope will work.

Let's Talk Disney- my 8 year old is a chatterbox non-stop, loves Yu-hi-oh and Pokemon, and swims like a
I hope your son isn't shy. He'd be turned off by my little bundle of energy.

About booking air with Disney-It was always a bad deal with connections/price/times, but lately I've heard a couple people get some ok deals with them. I think we've all gotten used to not even considering it.

Pershing-
Make sure you have Southwest Ding downloaded to your PC - you will get dinged as soon as the new dates opened up. I got dinged at 2:30 when Feb. opened up. When I open the ding 10 mins later most of the fights had been booked. They went fast. I will watch too and post as soon as I see April open up. Good Luck!
