    I just want to say this was a very thorough and great report of the Fantasy. We do not leave until Oct 19, but we have 5 rooms on the concierge level and you reassured us that we made the right decision. Thank you for taking the time to write this! Also Jayden is so cute! I loved all the pictures!

    I do have one question are mickey waffles, or hot breakfast items not offered in the concierge lounge?

    Thank you for reading along!

    Thanks for reading! I do not remember anything hot being served in the mornings in the lounge, but you could order hot food through room service if you are in a 1 bedroom suite.

    Thank you for your trip report!

    I don't usually get all mushy over little kids, but your daughter is adorable! Loved the last bit with Aurora. Disney IS magic!

    Since you were nice enough to answer my PM a few weeks back, you'll know one of the reasons I also loved your trip report is that I have managed to score 12000 on the Dream in February.

    On the Fantasy - I remember Vincente - he was wonderful! One of the best room hosts ever. I haven't met Alice, but remember and loved Kemisha and Julia so much.

    Enjoy your SC cruise! Loved the info about San Juan as I'll be there for the end of the WBTA. Not doing concierge for that one, but excited just the same.

    I just read your TR and loved every minute of it! What an amazing time you and your family had on your cruise, etc.
    This will be our first Disney cruise (been on many other cruises and took my children when they were young but Disney didn't have ships then). So now my husband and I are taking our grandson (4) and granddaughter (6) and their parents (our daughter and her husband). We will be on the June 15 Fantasy E. Car. cruise.
    Your pics of Princess Aurora and your darling daughter were the best! My granddaughter is named Aurora and she is looking forward to seeing her on the ship. I had no idea you would see so many characters on the ship. Thanks for the tips on when to line up to see the characters, etc. I will reread your report and take notes for our cruise. Thanks for being so helpful!

    If I remember correctly, you were originally booked on our January 2013 cruise but switched to another. I hope you enjoy room 12000 - it really is amazing! Thanks for reading along!

    Thanks for reading! We have only done Disney, so we have nothing to compare it to; however, we have had such amazing trips on Disney, it would be difficult for us to give another company a try! I hope you have a fabulous time with your grandkids!:lovestruc

    Thanks for reading along! I am a total plan-aholic. It keeps me going from one vacation to the next :)

    I really enjoyed all your cruise videos of your Fantasy cruise last year. Your boys looked like they were having a great time! They are so photogenic! Very handsome! What software did you use to make the videos? I take a lot of photos when I travel and I can't imagine how many pictures I will take while we are on the Fantasy June 15. I have tried different dvd programs but haven't really found one that I like.
    I like the fact that you combined video with still photos. Great job! And the music was the best too!

    Great review! It was easy to read and had great tips. It makes waiting for our cruise a little easier.

    "We walked into the room, Jeremy saw this and was in heaven. His quote..."THIS.IS.IMPRESSIVE!""

    Ok, now that was FUNNY!:). I loved your trip report, we are cruising concierge on our upcoming Fantasy cruise in Sep and I cannot wait!!! Its our first Disney cruise!!!
    Besides the character meets, did you do any of the family activities at the D lounge or anything? We have a 2 year old DS-- I cannot wait to see his reaction to everything!! He loves Disney anything lol!

    Thanks again for the awesome Pre and post reports!! I was sad when you started talking about packing on day 6:(. I was depressed for you!!!! I felt like you just got on the ship. Looking forward to more of your reports in the future!!

    Hi, I enjoyed the thread immensely. Last night, I scored a Cat V family room 12508 for October 2013 that had to have been a late cancellation as well as the last cabana for the eastern fantasy cruise. You mentioned that room service was only an option for 1 BR suites. I thought anyone could get room service? We don't have a 1 BR booked until 10-14 so that would stink if it is really the case. We like relaxed breakfasts.

    WOW.. what an amazing trip
    report. Thank you for taking us along for the ride... THAT picture from CC.. well that would look darn good as canvas wall art (google it.) Your one picture showing the cabana beach sold me. So only the cabana ppl are allowed to use it? Also, how early can you sign up for the cabanas and do you get to select which one you want? I think I read the lower the #, the better the location?

    Also, we splurged for concierge on our upcoming July (only 4-nighter WAH) so thanks for all the great pictures and info. And the last post about Aurora made me tear-up. :-)
