    Sorry! I was referring to the post about the dvc. I didn't know if children were allowed in the presentation.

    Alcohol brought on board may not be consumed in any lounge or public area.

    Oh man, now I wish I had not opened this thread. We have always brought little airplane-sized bottles of rum for Rum and Diet Coke (from soda station) by the pool. Doggone it, I had no idea we were doing something illicit and now I am going to have a big ethical drama with myself deciding whether to carry on with our little tradition. Bummer.[/QUOTE]

    That's silly. Just ask the bartender for a rum & coke glass and make your own in your room. It's not illegal to walk around with a drink. They just don't want you to walk around with little mini bottles of alcohol or a 40 ouncer like a lush.

    I am new to cruising and anytime we were at Disney World I did not book for future trips. I see that you can book for a future cruise while onboard at a reduced rate. A few questions:

    1. How far out can you typically book?

    2. We are going in April '13, could we book for December '14 then change the date to anytime and vise versa if we booked for April '14 can we make it Dec '14 at a later date?

    3. I take it from what I have read that this does not exclude you from using a travel agent?

    4. Can I book for 2 staterooms initially? We have 2 this time. What if I decide we only need one at a later date? If i book for one can we change to 2 with the same incentives at a later date?

    5. Do you book for a specific cruise? i.e.: Alaska, Bahamas etc, Can this be changed to something else or do you have to go to the destination you first chose?

    Sorry if this seems like simple questions but I am thinking if we really like it taking another cruise may be in the future. Thanks for any help.

    Consider making this a new thread you will probably get more complete responses as these are big questions. Plus it will keep the info on the boards more organized.

    On the Wonder DS and DH love to fill their plate with wings and hot dogs from Diversions and bring it back to the stateroom.
