    Anyone else going on this cruise? It will be me/DH, DD (14) and DS (8) We will be staying at POR the night before and then heading out to the port and after heading back to the world to visit the parks. This will be our second cruise the first one was DCL as well... 3 night Wonder.

    Looking forward to the changes in drydock. I've heard that large screen will be really neat!

    Welcome! Our DD's will be about the same age then. DS will be 8 and I'm sure he will want to spend some time in the activity centers... we could hardly keep them out last time! They are most excited about that. :teeth:

    Is this your first DCL cruise?

    We should be arriving the afternoon of the 14th at POR and then driving to the port the next day. Last year we had breakfast that morning at Boatwrights (Banana Stuffed French Toast YUM!) and the kids want to do that again. We will have my parents with us as well.

    Yes, this is our first Disney Cruise! My older dd is unsure if she will like the clubs, it would be so nice to have her pen pal with someone else on the ship when it's closer so she feels like she has a "friend" there already! Not that we mind having her hang out with us...but I think she'd enjoy some alone time too.

    Do you take Disney transportation to the port? I am wondering what we will have time for the morning that we leave. I was thinking of Boatwrights as well!! <the sweet potato pancakes with pecans sound devine!>

    DD would love to have a penpal before the cruise. This would be the first time she'd be eligible for the teen club and is nervous. I told her that none of us necessarily have friends on the ship before we go... we have to make them. :wave:

    It would be great to schedule a meet up maybe the night before so they could meet OR we could even say "Howdy!" at breakfast.

    We are driving ourselves are you taking the bus? Have they given you a departure time? Last time we left POR at about 8:30 am and got to the port WAY early and even had to sit in the car. Something tells me that the busses don't leave until like 10ish? Being that they bring the other passengers off the ship first and then pick up the ones going but I'm not sure we've always driven. I'm sure you can find that answer on this forum though.

    Yes, we are taking the Disney bus. I can't get a real answer as to when it picks up at POR.

    Have you done excursions on your previous Disney cruises? We are going to get a "room" at the Atlantis or Comfort Suites so we can do the Atlantis.

    Wow! We are going to be running into each other alot.. :laughing: We are planning on doing exactly the same thing! Last year we made our own excursion by walking to the pirate museum in Nassau but this year DD has already asked if we could Puhleeeeze go to Atlantis.

    My parents are going on the cruise as well and after looking at the Atlantis website it really looks like it's something! I know that DD is looking forward to some of the water slides and I'm excited to see the aquarium part.

    I wonder why we are the only two posting...dang...we'll definately be assured a lounge chair by the pool if it's just us on this cruise! :rotfl:

    Let me know if you get any killer deals at the Atlantis...and I will be sure to do the same for you! My daughters and I will be at the pool/dig all day while my husband gambles his little heart out and tries to win enough to cover the cost of the trip! :lmao: I can't laugh to hard though...he actually has done just that twice!

    I would like to try the brunch, Yes.

    We have early dinner. I actually tossed back and forth on that one the first cruise but was happy in the end that we did early. That allowed us to actually be hungry again for the pirate party dessert buffet. :woohoo: Also, DS is autistic and it was just nicer to have him completely fed and the dinner thing over for the shows. That way we didn't have to feed him seperately before the show then attend show and have him either go to the kids club or watch us eat later. I admit that the first night dinner seemed so early but after that it was ok... we actually eat early dinner at home. Now later in the parks we sometimes do not eat until 8pm or after!!! Though our server was wishing that DS would try something other than the cheese pizza for dinner. I remember the last night he asked "Oh Mr Austin would you like something different for dinner tonight?" and He'd already circled cheese pizza on the menu... :rotfl2: so.... cheese pizza it was. Again. Guess it was good?

    Yes we will keep a look out on the room rates. We would qualify for the government discount at the comfort though I'm not sure how much of a discount that is. I think last time I checked the room was only going to be $25 off from Atlantis prices. :confused3 but hoping more information comes out over the next few months.

    We are planning... hoping... to see Bob Jackson at POR Saturday night... how about you?

    Yes, I've read about Bob Jackson and definately want to check him out!! We'll be at Sea World that Saturday. Where can I find him? Do you think grabbing dinner at the food court or Boatwrights is a good idea...then heading over to see the show?

    Guess I'd better dust off the pilates and get the clothes off the exercise bike.

    Thanks for the reminder.... I think! :lmao: :lmao:

    Bob Jackson performs at the lounge located in the POR resort. When you get there it's between the check-in part of the lobby and the Boatwrights. I think he starts at 8:30pm. He's not hard to find especially after he gets started... just follow your ears! LOL :listen:

    Dinner at the food court or Boatwrights would be a great idea. We have taken the boat over to DTD for dinner about 6ish before and gotten back in time for the show no problem.

    Sea world! How fun!

    Thanks for the Bob Jackson tips! He's family friendly right?

    LOL!!! We'll all have sunglasses just in case! :smooth:

    Yes, Bob is family friendly! Great time... we make sure to visit at least once every visit. Definitly starts the vacation off right for us.
