First Time Wonder 8 people, 4 nights and2 trips to CC July 27-31 Having never done a trip report, I decided to give it a try. I have loved reading everyones reports before our first Wonder cruise so I thought Id share our trip. We combined our first DCL cruise with four days at Disney World before the cruise. It was our third trip in three years to DW and we loved our three nights at the Wilderness Lodge (our home away from home), but we were even more excited about waking up on Saturday morning, finishing our Animal Kingdom day and then taking Magical Express back to the airport to meet up with the rest of our family flying in for our cruise which leaves tomorrow! We all decided to stay the night before at the Airport Hyatt and be ready to board the DCL bus early the next morning to head to the port. So here goes .first the cast of characters for our trip (and I do mean characters)! Me Laura Disney planning fanatic elementary school teacher, wife and mom DH Don husband to Disney planning fanatic, great dad, and also elementary school teacher DD1 age 8 going into third grade DD2 age 6 going into first grade Here's a pic of us from our beach trip 4 days before we left for our Disney trip.(We love both being teachers and being able to travel all summer.) The rest of the characters that joined us are: Rina my mom and grandma to DDs Nana and Bubba DHs parents and grandparents to DDs LizzieTish nickname for DHs sister, beloved aunt to DDs So, after four quiet days at Disney World with just the four of us, we were now arriving back at the airport to find the Hyatt, check in and let the craziness begin with the other 4 that would be joining us. Nana and Bubba were flying in from Pennsylvania and Rina and LizzieTish were flying in from Virginia. We were all meeting at the Hyatt and gearing up for four nights of fun! Let me start by saying that the Airport Hyatt was the best choice I made for our pre cruise night. It was beautiful, convenient and made our beginning of our journey so smooth. We arrived back at the Hyatt at 3:00 pm, Nana and Bubba were already checked in, so after we got settled in our rooms, we headed straight to the roof top pool for some fun with the grandparents. Rina and LizzieTish were not scheduled to arrive until about 6:00 pm. Here's DD2 looking out at the view from our Hyatt room - straight down into the airport terminal - very cool! and the view from our balcony the girls with Nana and Bubba at the rooftop pool it really was a beautiful pool Up next... Rina and Lizzietish arrive, dinner, we lose Nana and Bubba - lots of sleep and off to Port Canaveral.
