:drive: Happy Limo bus charter update! :drive:

My brother's group just hopped on the bus, so there are only 4 seats remaining on the charter to the port, and 10 for the return trip. Anyone waiting to decide should wait no longer. Book now! It's going to be our mini-meet on wheels!

Crazy8Ma - you no longer have the biggest group on the bus! ::yes::

FYI - We will have a 15 passenger van on site at WDW and are willing to assist anyone needing to get to or from one of our stops. Let me know if you need a ride.

    Thanks for the update JQ and sorry to say but we trump you with 12. Indigo is with us. That makes us the biggest. Got our airfare yesterday. Counting the days. I don't know what a konk looker is but it sounds tropical and I can't wait to try one with my feet in the nice warm sand.:beach:

    Here is poison's "poison" from the bar at Serenity Bay. She said that it was very refreshing and delicious. I watched the bartender make it fresh(no mix). It has Passion fruit, orange juice and pina colada, with light and dark rum.

    In the Philly market Southwest is having Airtran handle all of the early non-stop flights which may or may not incur baggage fees (we received 2 different answers). We got tired of dealing with airfare and rented a 15 passenger van from National for our entire 2 week trip for $1350.00. Our friend Cass, who jumped ship, is staying in WDW with the van during the cruise(no parking fees).
    Including fuel and an overnight stay in Savannah on the way down, it's still cheaper than flying, not to mention we have transportation for length of stay and room for all our crap.

    I called SW about the airtran flights listed on the sw flights available page. I was told that if you book it through the southwest website..there will be NO baggage fees. You will receive your boarding pass and seat assignment 24 hours ahead. If you are unhappy with your seat assignment, just call or go up to the desk in the boarding area and ask for a change.

    Good morning cruise friends:
    After checking out the airfares, we've decided to take the AutoTrain. The lowest airfare from Pittsburgh to MCO plus DCL transportation to port would be $780. AutoTrain for us and our car and anything we want to take along - without restriction - is $710. It takes an extra day before and after for the transportation, but we're not on a time schedule, and we enjoy train travel.
    This way when we get to Sanford on Saturday, we'll be able to head over to Cocoa beach, relax at Country Inn & Suites, have supper at our favorite restaurant and when we get back, we can again spend some time at Cocoa beach, maybe pick up some rock shrimp to bring back with us - can't do that if we're flying.

    JohnnyQuest ... Someone pm'd me on face book with this question ...

    "What time do you anticapate the pick ups to begin and what would be the approximate arrival time at the port?"

    I believe they are interested in taking the bus. Can you let me know so I can answer them

    Thanks

    I am still coordinating with the dispatcher for Happy Limo, but we are going to time pick ups for a 10:45am port arrival. This puts the first pick up at approx. 8am.

    As we get closer and the roster is finalized, I will notify all passengers of the exact route and schedule.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Johnny Quest I just used the email through the board to add the return bus trip for us besides the bus to the port. We are at OKW before the cruise and at SSR after the cruise. Thanks again for setting this up. We just book our flights from DCA on Jet Blue.

    Hey Nat,
    Welcome to the cruise meet. If you check out our front page you can view all our organized activities for the cruise. We are running a bus charter between the port and various Disney World resorts if you're interested. It's a bit cheaper than Disney transfers and the Beach Club is a tentative stop on the list. Check it out.
    Hey! Ive used Happy Limo before and love them. If its not too late and you have a pickup from the Yacht club to the port for four, i would take it. Does this include the 15min grocery stop?

    Hi Dave,
    I got your e-mail and added you to the return trip. Welcome aboard.

    Hi Nat,
    It's not too late there are 4 spots left for the ride to the port and we are doing a Yacht & Beach Club pick up. Unfortunately there are too many of us to take advantage of the 15min. grocery stop as it would certainly turn into an hour. I will sign you up as the last four passengers. Welcome aboard.

    Much appreciated!

    Totally understood about the store stop. I can do that on my own.

    Ive never stayed at the Yacht Club so i'm assuming thats near the Beach club or are they one in the same?

    We stayed at the Yacht Club in December for my wife to attend a conference. It was very nice! Yacht & Beach Club are one resort with two sides. I'm going to negotiate with Happy Limo to pick up at both lobbies and count it as one stop. For either of you to walk with luggage from one to the other would be a bit of a trek.

    Again, much appreciated on this one way trip! We'll get happy limo back to the airport. I'm sure you'll let us know when its time to pay.
