LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE SPA! Hope that I get a chance on this trip. Need to double check with the boy before I book anything.
I've done the banana boat (which I don't think they do any more) and the sting rays on Castaway Cay. Would like to try parasailing on this trip.
I don't remember which level I am at this point! I'm just excited to check out the new ship!
There are so many questions from everybody that Lou may have to do a couple shows just about the cruise. I posted 3 or 4, I got some answers from the TA, maybe somebody here knows the answer to the others...
When will buses leave the resort?
The answer is DCL will usually leave the resort between 11:30am and 12:30pm to go to the port. When you check in, there is a onsite representative at the resort there who will assist you with your time and place for meeting the bus.
What day can we make ADR’s for Sunday, February 27?
The answer is you can make your advanced dining reservations at 180 days out. For pre-cruise, that will be on Monday, August 30th. For post-cruise, that will be on Saturday, September 4th.
What day can we start making excursion & onboard (spa, Palo) reservations?
Castaway Club members can begin making Palo, spa and excursion reservations 90-days prior (as long as final is paid in full). That would be November 29th.
How will it work for Magical Express? Will it be free from Orlando airport to Disney resort, then pay $75 for both the transfer from the Disney resort to Port Canaveral and transfer back from Port Caveral to Disney resort, then free ride from Disney resort to Orlando airport? Does the $75 include both to/from or each way?
I have done this as a land/sea package, but never piecemeal like we are this time. Can or should I link all my reservations? I am starting at Disney All Star family suite, going on WDW Radio Cruise (we have 3 rooms), then returning to Bay Lake Tower 2-bedroom villa (MK view!) on rented DVC points.
I have seen two different schedules for the Magic & Wonder. 1) Nassau, 2) day at sea, 3) Castaway Cay. 1) Nassau, 2) Castaway Cay, 3) day at sea. What days are we going to be at Port Nassau, Castaway Cay and the day at sea?
I noticed our flight is arriving around 2pm Saturday and from previous experience know sometimes bags do not arrive in your Disney room until 3 or more hours later. On a previous Disney cruise we had to get our bags ready the night before to be sent to the ship. I’m concerned that our bags arriving late may cause us to miss the bag check-in for the cruise. If we do need to check them the night before, what time do we need to have them ready for transfer to Port Canaveral?
Our last cruise on the Wonder seemed like it was mostly couples in their 30’s & 40’s without children, but we were in the late dinner seating so there were less kids at meals. It would be nice to see the demographics from Disney. On deck there were special activities in another secure area for the kids so even people with kids onboard were kid-free most of the time. In other words, you don’t see any more kids than on any other cruise line. You may even see less youngsters because they cater so well to kids with special programs and areas. The only big difference compared to other cruise lines seems to be the lack of gambling facilities. What is your experience with the age of most adults and number of children onboard?
We always get a PhotoPass at WDW, usually 2 cards so my wife and I each have one. Do they use a photopass card on the ship or is that just at WDW? Just wondered because they have a prepaid thing going again….. which I think is all the time now?
Atlantis... They offer a swim with the dolphins experience that I would love to try, we will definitely do that when my daughter gets a little older.
I really want to do the spa, but my wife is not so sure.
We will probably stay on the ship at Nassau this time (to check out the ship).
Hey all you cool Deck 6 people! I have been away from this thread for awhile. Last thursday our passports arrived in the mail 5 weeks from the day we applied. My wife starting panicking because they didn't send back her birth certificate. Then I read that they would send back your proof of citizenship in separate cover. It came the next day; for some reason I was glad to get back my old passport from when I was in high school and went to Spain. Boy did I look young at 16.
Southwest finally came out with flights thru March 11th on tuesday :yahoo:. So now we are booked for Friday for the precruise stay and coming back home on the third. Any body flying out of Philly? We've never left at 7 am before, it will be like when we occassionly drive; getting up in the middle of the night to get a real early start. Wish it was tomorrow morning. I'm ready now!
Hi Deck 6 People,
We're staying in Cabin 6598. It will be my wife Anne Marie, myself, and our two kids, John (age 4, almost 5) and Adele, 2.
Adele will be too young to hang out in the Oceaneer Club, so you'll probably see us chasing her up and down the hallways a lot. Maybe we'll put her in the nursery from time to time.
We're excited about the cruise and look forward to meeting lots of great people.
