They are not available through the Disney website, but when I look at other travel websites they say suites are sold out.

I am hoping somebody reschedules or cancels. If there is a chance for an upgrade I will be at the port before they open. Otherwise I will probably show up at around 12:30.

That 4-night Wonder cruise was terrific. What a great group of passengers and DISers.

DD still wears her DIS shirt from that cruise.
Wow that is a lot of PT. Hope you are feeling better!

That was a great cruise. If I remember correctly, the poor guy that made them couldn't even come. I believe his dad was very ill.

Nice to be cruising with you again!

Shelly welcome!

I have a DS-11 Matt who is looking forward to meeting his new friends on the cruise. He has been emailing 2 boys from our DISmeet (James and Kyle).

I also have a DD 8( Marina) who will be in the Lab with your DD.

I will Pm you my email if the kids want to chat. I know that my DD would love to email with your DD. She is feeling left out since Matt has already made some friends.


We are booked in a Gty. so no cabin # yet. We prefer an inside because it is very dark and the kids and DH will sleep in. On our last cruise, we were up graded to a cat 9 and appreciated the upgrade but, would of loved an inside.

This way you get to see the places only backpacking will allow you to go, but the llamas carry the load.

Then again, if you would prefer to passively look, check out Alaska cruises. I am hoping in 2011 Disney moves one boat to the west coast and tries an Alaska itinerary for three or four months.

Everybody - if you don't have travel insurance yet and have any preexisting conditions, we are less than five months out. I have seen insurance offered that excludes preexisting conditions for 90 or 120 days after purchase, so buy soon!
We are leaning on yellowstone. But, we are getting some terrific Alaska cruise deals. I would love to go on DCL for Alaska.

We are planning on going to Yellowstone for two weeks. We want to whitewater raft and a horseback trip when we are there.

We are debating about staying in hotels or bring our trailer.

Our 1st cruise we were upgraded to verandah cabin, used it 10 mins the whole cruise but still nice to get a free upgrade.

We almost did Alaskan cruise end of May, it was so cheap with HAL, under $2,000 outside cabin for 4 of us for 7 nights. They had an offer for 3rd & 4th on room free.
Decided to go back to WDW instead, flights were cheaper and we have annual passes for all parks.

We were looking at the same cruise. It was $3200 for the for of us with air .Unfortunately, Erik is going to be in South Carolina for the next 3 months and will only be home on the weekends. He has already made sure he will be home for socut camp and our cruise.

Updated website tonight.

Added Shelly and family.

Bev added your cabin # (I have been called worse names, don't worry)

I have also added hyperlinks to our cabin numbers, click on them and it takes you to a deck plan of the deck you are staying on.

Does anyone know the date CAstaway Club members can book excursions? I think that it is 90 days out. But, unsure on exact date.

Thanks

Shelly - welcome to the group! You are much braver than me to fly in the day before the cruise, but I'll look forward to meeting you all whenever we have our meet!

Wayne - adding the deck plans was a great idea! I am trying to memorize relevant parts of the deck plan before I board so I don't need to refer to a map to find my way around...

Christi - Yellowstone would be a great vacation, there are some incredible meadows beyond the roads you can ride a horse through or camp in, and the two rivers north of the park look like they offer awesome rafting. I hope to get on one of those rivers next year!
If driving, bring the trailer. It would add a lot to sleep in the park and wake to the sounds of nature.
