    I'm very excited, too. Looking at some pre-cruise nights at Disney. Can we use Magical Express if we book at Swan/Dolphin?

    If not, and we choose to stay elsewhere, can we still get the transfer to the port?

    Thanks.

    Guests staying at Swan/Dolphin are not eligible for Disney's Magical Express.

    The adult solarium will be my home away from home for 7nights:goodvibes.

    I was wondering if I would be able to get a post cruise transfere to a different resort than my pre cruise transfer.

    I will be arrive the day before staying at the Swan and using the transfer to the port. I would like to stay two nights post cruise and take advantage of magical express for my return trip to the airport.

    Thanks! We'll probably be staying at Port Orleans-French Quarter, then.

    Thanks! I guess PO-FQ it is!

    Its over a year from the cruise. I would like to add a week at the world but would like to wait and see if there are any free dining or discounts that come up for that time of year. If I sign up for my free transfer now, will it be possible to change it later?
    In addition I Keep getting 500 - Internal Server error when trying to access the page to book the transfers. I have tried multiple browsers and computers. Any ideas?

    Thanks... Can't wait for the Cruise!

    The link has been fixed sorry about that.

    The free transfers do not expire (as long as you book your cruise before 7/31/2012) so you can wait until you know what your plans are before/after the cruise to sign up.

    The only exception will be as we get much closer to the cruise we will need to close-out the transfers so we can complete the contract with the transportation comapny - but we will send MANY emails and warnings before that happens.

    I would prefer you wait and sign up for transfers later than sign up now and have to change them.

    Thanks
    John

    Thank you John for this information. I am wondering what the transportation from WDW to the cruise ship means. What hotels are included or is it the Swan/Dolphin ( which is great) only? Thank you for your work on this. :)

    Thank-you John for the info. I will indeed wait to book the transfers.
    As an FYI, I am still getting the 500 Error following the page where I enter my reservation # and password. The URL is as follows.
    blah-blah-blah/DisCruise10/DisCruise10_start2.cfm

    Could not post the full link because I don't have enough experience. :rolleyes:
    Thank-you for your help.

    Ugh I REALLY wish we could join you all on this one! FINALLY a "Dis" cruise in the Fall...except this one just happened to end up on our first week of school- and our littlest's first day of kindergarten, so sadly we have to pass. :sad1:

    Folks- everything Pete, Walter, John and Kevin have said about the Oasis and Allure is absolutely true- they are AMAZING ships!

    If you are the trip report reading type, I invite you to check out my TR from Allure. The TR is very long, very detailed, with hundreds of pictures. Oh, and it's complete! ;) The only difference between Allure and Oasis are very minor theming differences and the shows and that Oasis has Seafood Shack not Rita's Cantina (and also does not have the Doghouse which Allure has)- otherwise the ships and experiences are identical.

    Did you know that Oasis has character breakfasts? They are a lot of fun! We did two of them on Allure so you can see that in my TR also.

    Did I mention the FLASH MOB? :thumbsup2

    ETA: We were also on an Eastern so you can see the excursions we did as well. They were pretty awesome! We did one on our own, and one through RCCL.



    Go on, check out the TR! I think you'll enjoy it! :goodvibes

    Hope you all have an AMAZING DIS cruise 1.0!

    :) Jen

    As you might imagine I do not have details this far out.

    However, most likely we will handle transfer in the same way we did for Podcast Cruise 3.0 (and for Podcast Cruise 4.0).

    We will hire a bus company that will pick up at any WDW owned and operated hotel and the Swan/Dolphin.

    The exact hotels will be determined by who exactly signs up and where they are staying. If you are staying at a WDW hotel or the Swan/Dolpin and you sign up for the transfers you will be picked up.

    The timing and/or order that the bus will follow to pick people up at the hotesl is still unknown.

    I apologize but this is all the details I can give a year out.

    i wonder if RCCL's late departure program will be available on the Oasis when we sail on her....
    i think their late departure program sounds wonderful!!
    although i don't know if it will work with the port transfers....and if no one else makes use of it, i don't know how fun it would be to be by myself...
    but if i were with DH, i would definitely want to take advantage of it!!
