    I LOVED your trip report!!! The pictures were AWESOME. What type of camera/lens did you use? My DH and I are going 08/2013 and I will use much of your advice when we travel. Thanks for the post!!!

    Thanks cforsythe!

    I am trying to remember, but I think I just had a Canon Rebel back then. I used a 16-35mm lens most of the week. We're going again in June! :)

    Edit: Oh I just looked! I had my Canon 50D then.

    Well you will be a pro on your 2nd trip. We are foreign language challenged so I think we will stick to Disney sponsored excursions. I wish we were brave enough to venture out on our own like you all did...

    We were amazed at how well we did with just English, but I completely understand wanting to stick with DCL excursions. Have so much fun!! :)

    Although this trip report is almost 3 years old, I really enjoyed reading it!! You've taken many amazing pictures, thank you really much! We'll go on a 7 Night Ned cruise in June (it'll be our first cruise ever) and I'm so looking forward to it when I see your pics :thumbsup2

    We're taking the Med cruise in August 2013. We were going to just swallow hard and pay for the DCL excursions, but your excellent report has given me the courage to go DIY. I'm combing through all the trip reports and info I can. Thanks!
