    I have to be honest. We didn't see any of them!! I had promised my DH that this time it was going to be a go-with-the-flow vacation and so the time just never really fit. We heard good things about Magic Dave but didn't see him in person.

    The trivia was a lot of fun. This time was the first time we have done them and we had a great time. We did the adult only ones but that's only because we are so hopeless the kids would have embarrassed us!! LOL.

    I noticed there wasn't a Seafood buffet listed. Do they still have it? THANKS! Did you send anything at the Post Office in Castway Cay? How did it work?

    We have mailed a postcard from Castaway. The post office is cash only. It took our postcard 2 months to arrive. I have heard others say theirs took longer than that.

    Yes, there was a seafood buffet on the last at sea day in BBB. At CC you have to have cash to pay for your postage and it takes a LOOOOONGGG time to get there! :rotfl: Also the post office closes at 2 pm, so be sure to get there before then.

    It was a FANTASTIC trip! In fine Disney fashion, everything moved along beautifully! The port may not have the "trappings" of Port Canaveral, but the lines move quickly, and the faces are just as friendly! The comedians/magicians were hilarious (saw them at the WD Theatre). Love how they always bring the kids into what they are doing!

    We mailed from Key West. We had mailed from CC previously, and it took 4 months for the postcards to arrive!

    I would love to know what the "passenger capacity" was on this sailing! It was no where NEAR full!

    Everyone have fun on your upcoming cruises!

    Thanks so much for the navigators.

    I have a couple questions about the embarkation/debarkation process.

    1. Can you check your kids into the clubs in the port or do you have to do that on the ship? What were the lines like?
    2. What was the earliest time you could get into the port? I am scheduled for an 11 a.m. arrival time for our cruise in December and was wondering if I should try for an upgrade.
    3. For the debarkation did you have to wait for your luggage tag to be called before you could leave the ship or was it setup where you could just walk off when you were finished with breakfast and customs had cleared the ship?
    (the reason I ask is we had a horrible debark experience on the Wonder in L.A. because we didn't know we would be the last getting off after having an early breakfast time). I would like to plan ahead and have activities for our kids or something to do if we'll be last.
    4. If the luggage tags needed to be called in order to get off the ship does anyone know the order they were called?

    We were told several times that our sailing was almost full. I agree it didn't feel like it. :upsidedow

    1. Can you check your kids into the clubs in the port or do you have to do that on the ship? What were the lines like? Yes, you can check your kids in at the terminal. The kids club check in is to your right once you have cleared security. The check in is behind a wall, so I couldn't tell you what the lines looked like, hopefully someone that had kids on this sailing can help you.
    2. What was the earliest time you could get into the port? I am scheduled for an 11 a.m. arrival time for our cruise in December and was wondering if I should try for an upgrade. I think you can begin arriving at about 10:30 am, but really it all depends on how the debarkation has gone for the people just getting back as they won't start letting you drop bags etc if the prior cruise hasn't cleared customs. We have arrived right at 11 am before and there were quite a few people in the terminal already.
    3. For the debarkation did you have to wait for your luggage tag to be called before you could leave the ship or was it setup where you could just walk off when you were finished with breakfast and customs had cleared the ship?
    (the reason I ask is we had a horrible debark experience on the Wonder in L.A. because we didn't know we would be the last getting off after having an early breakfast time). I would like to plan ahead and have activities for our kids or something to do if we'll be last. If you keep your luggage with you in your stateroom then you can do Express Walkoff and you don't have to wait for a luggage tag color to be called. If you are going to have breakfast on your dining rotation then you have to wait for your luggage tag color to be called. I think once they start calling luggage though, it goes fairly quickly.
    4. If the luggage tags needed to be called in order to get off the ship does anyone know the order they were called? I don't know the answer to that. I know that White, Grey and Pink were the first colors to be called on this past sailing.
