I am over the moon! It's made this already fantastic year for me even better!

Sorry, I know it's not about the cruise, but I just wanted to shout it somewhere

I hope everyone else has had a great day too
Fabulous! So happy for you!

Me, I'm off to London again this fine morning. Hopefully the last trip before Christmas. Gotta finish planning the ebta when I get back. At least we can get TO the cruise as we've got our Houston flight booked. That's the important bit, right?
I just shipped a package to the London area this afternoon, does that count? YES - getting TO Houston is the important part, and your hotel is booked, so all is done! Nobody wants to disembark the ship anyway. Heck, we have friends getting ON the ship on June 1... already planning a scheme to become stowaways... hehehehe.

looking to share a tour

Is anyone flying on Icelandic Air on June 8 from CDG to JFK? the flights we book have a layover of 7.5 hours in Iceland and we are looking at tour guides. If anyone else is flying on these flights and is interested in sharing the tour vehicle and costs - please PM me!

The tour we are looking at includes:
Golden Circle
tectonic plates
Geysir - Strokkur
Gullfoss - golden waterfall
Kerid - volcanic crater

for 600 USD and the vehicle will hold up to 4 people, we are only 2!

I'd be pretty concerned about committing to this tour with only 7.5 hours between flights. Your plane could arrive late into Reykjavik, and you'd need to return at least 90 minutes prior to your flight to go through security.

The tour is a private one, and we will arrive back at the airport about 90 min prior to leaving time. They are assuring us we will be fine.

We will be on that same first flight from CDG to Reykjavik. Unfortunately we only have an hour or so layover until our flight to Minneapolis. Are you staying at Disneyland Paris beforehand?

I am woefully behind! I haven't logged in for almost six weeks and I have almost 20 pages of posts to catch up on. We recently moved and I've been busy .

Anyway, happy holiday season to you all. Off to try to catch up.

we are - I am waiting for the dates to open before I can call DVC. We decided to make the layover count, thus the 7 hours. The provider is telling us we will be at the airport at 1530 - about 90 minutes before our flight out at 1700.

How are you getting from the park to CDG?

Do any of you qualify for the military discount? This morning DCL announced a military discount for our cruise. My TA is trying to transfer my reservation to this discount. My savings would be over $1,000. While the discount is showing on the website, the DCL reservation people are saying there is no military discount for this cruise - don't give up, ask for a supervisor and they will be able to help you or your TA.

That's awesome!! I figured we would start seeing some discounts since some Categories have final payment in about 8 days.

That's what I have been reading as well. We are spending two nights there, but after your dates.

Hello,
You can take the train (TGV) it's the faster way to go from the park to CDG (11 min.) it's between 17€-27€ the ride there are bus but it's longer I think it's almost an hour not sure we prefer the train. Hope it can help...

Thanks for the info. This was our plan, but I had not looked into it that closely yet. Is it just as easy to get into Paris proper? We are planning on staying at Disneyland the whole time we are in France.
