    We too saw the FL rate and booked this afternoon. Didn't know we could get 4D, so hoping that we can move from 5B as we love the bigger rooms. This will be our 4th DCL cruise, and first on the Dream. It's myself, DW, and DD (3).

    We will talk and see if we want to do the FE, saw that closing date is on the first, so we need to decide quick. LOL

    We just booked this morning also with the amazing Florida Resident rate. This will be our 10th Disney Cruise. We went to Alaska just a month ago on the Wonder! We have done the Dream before and can't wait to get back on board. I'll be happy to sign up for the FE and a DIS meet. My oldest DD asked for a Disney cruise for her 13th birthday, boy won't she be surprised when she actually gets one. We aren't mentioning it to her until she unwraps it on that day in a few weeks. We also have a DD6 who will be just as excited to be back on board so soon. Hopefully, this will help take the sting out of us canceling the NYE's one on the Fantasy we had planned.

    And we are neighbors! That must be the Florida resident rate area. I checked and it looks like a good area - close to the elevators but not in a too noisy spot.

    Welcome! My husband and I did the sea lion encounter and loved it, you get to enjoy the island and watch the other encounters if you want.Can't speak for the dolphin but the sea lions were awesome.

    Welcome! WOW 10 cruises! I have been wanting to do the Alaska cruise I will have to pick your brain if you don't mind:thumbsup2. When we were close to gold status my husband looked at me and said " we are not going to become platinum members are we?":rotfl2: and now we are on our way:lmao: he loves to give me a hard time but he loves them he is like a little kid and gets excited and can't sleep the night before.

    Welcome, thanks for the tip too, we rebooked today from inside to cat 4 because hubby wanted a balcony:sad2:

    Welcome! We have talked our best friends into going, this will be there 1st! Disney cruise:cheer2:

    Looks like we are spread out between 2 decks so far, that will make it easy to deliver:thumbsup2. I just wanted to add some tips. Make sure your cabin # is on the spred sheet when you get it. I understand some people do not have them yet and also make sure you check the FE list just before you leave for your trip because some could get pixie dustpixiedust: and be upgraded so there cabin # might change.

    Hi everyone. We (DH, DW, DS10) live in Melbourne, FL, and just booked this cruise with the FLR rate. We also are very surprised to get a Cat 4D.... we never thought we'd ever be able to stay in anything higher than a Cat 6. We're thinking the same thing as ya'll - that this cruise might not be very full, or something.

    This will be our 9th Disney cruise, 2nd on the Dream. We will probably go to Cabbage Beach on Nassau Day.... we like to hang out in front of the Sunrise Beach Club (http://www.sunrisebeachclub.com) and order drinks from their tiki bar, and sometimes get a nice massage too. If the winds are right, this beach is fantastic for swimming and snorkeling... if not, the waves can be too big. One year we rented a waverunner for $75, it was fun.

    On Sea Day we hope to spend some time in the spa... but if it's too busy we'll just hang out on our verandah.

    Everyone please pray for NO hurricanes or storms! ;-)

    See ya on the 2nd!

    I don't mind at all! There is one thing I never can talk enough about, Disney. Whether it's the parks, the cruises, or DVC, I am a Disney addict. And I absolutely loved the Alaskan cruise. Such a once in a lifetime trip (because traveling that far is a pain!)

    That's pretty funny. Our rooms are actually connecting, so I'll make sure I bring an extra padlock. :)

    YEAH!!!! We just booked on Florida Res rate. It is me, Amanda, my husband Ed and our 12 year old DD. This is my 12th cruise - we were on the Dream in January and the Fantasy in June. Can't wait to go again - the rates were just too good to turn down.

    I'm hoping to do the Fantasy now next year. Though we may throw in a quick trip on the Dream again before then if another great rate like this shows up.
