We are late dining. We are late eaters. 5pm for us is cocktail and swim time when we're on vacation. As far as the discount goes it was kind of suprising. DCL rarely offers Airline employees, travel agent or Cm(according to cm I spoke to) discounts. I guess September was not selling well because DCL discounted all the cruises in September for Airline employees. I couldn't pass it up. The discount was closer to 60-70%. Incredibly unbelievable. 1100 dollars for the four of us. I think I will be taking a Disney cruise every September for the rest of my life if this trend continues. Flights are super empty too. I'm starting to wonder why we always go in May when the flights are oversold(not good when your flying standby) and the prices are higher.
