    Hello :)

    Yes I did it last year and I'm doing it again this year. I booked the Disney transportation to and from the airport ($75pp, but in my opinion worth it for the hassle free experience) and I make sure my flight arrives before their latest recommended time (Which I think is 1pm?). When we did it last year, our flight arrived around 12:45pm and we were on the ship by about 2/2:30. I think we have to be on the ship by 4 so this gave us 2 hours of wiggle room for flight delays and what not. For a single flight (no connections) I think that's a good margin.

    We are flying in the same day. This will be my 12th Disney Cruise and no issues. I think the same..all the extra$$$$ can be spent on other things. We have an early flight in the morning...so fingers crossed it will be fine.

    Ok, I feel much better!!! Our flight is a direct flight from Cincinnati and gets to MCO at 11:43 am.

    That's great to hear!! Ok, I don't feel so bad flying in same day. We've never had issues flying into MCO, knock on wood, it's always a direct flight so no worries about a flight delay at a connection stop.

    Can't wait for our cruise!!!

    Oh yes, we also got DCL transfers. I figure once we're at the airport we won't have to worry about our luggage and we're in Disney's hands to get us to the port.

    Ok, I am confused!!! When I log in it shows a room assignment and shows category 07A, that's the same category I booked. When I look up the room on the deck plan it shows it's category 05C with verandah, when I originally booked it was a navigator's verandah which would have been category 07A. Does this mean I was upgraded? The room the assigned us is almost right in the middle of the ship.

    Ok, wait, I figured it out!!! Ok, so this is a slight upgrade, from "obstructed" navigator's verandah to a full verandah!!!! Woo hoo, that's good enough for me!!!!

    Finally back in the grove and so excited about this cruise!

    We got all our flights booked and booked our room at the Hyatt MCO. Now we need to figure out transportation to and from the port. Will definitely book limo to the port (it is tradition and we always drink mimosas along the way) but thinking about booking DCL transfers back to the airport so we can do airline check-in on board the ship.

    Sounds like we are in the same boat Heather. :teeth: (pun intended) I have two friends joining me on this cruise too and one has never cruised and the other has only been on RCI. Should be an exciting time!

    I booked a GTY 11C & we have been assigned an 11a. Not a big upgrade. I knew with a family of three we would have an inside cabin but I really don't care!! I am just thrilled we will be on the ship!!! I am sure we won't be in our room much anyway, too much to cram in four days!!

    I had an 11A cat last year. I loved my inside cabin. It was so roomy. The inside was as big as an ocean view on other ships. I was on deck 9 back than. The magical porthole was an awesome feature. If I wasn't taking my mom this time, I would have loved to have my inside again. I also loved being off of a main hallway. Private and quiet area and so easy to get around every where. You will enjoy your cabin pixiedust:

    Tell me more about the Limo! We are going down Friday night, doing parks all day Saturday, going to breakfast at Ohana and surprising the kids with a cruise. We were thinking a limo would be great to add to the surprise.

    What parks are you doing Saturday? I thought about doing the parks Saturday but just opted for downtown Disney. I booked pop century for Saturday. We are also staying there after the cruise!!

    I am getting so excited!! It is really hard keeping this from my oldest dd!! She will be so mad!!! Do I have to tell her?

    Trying to read through all these pages and came across your post. We are going to Night of Joy after also. It's actually what started this whole trip and the only reason the kids think we are going to Disney. We are surprising them with the cruise before.
