I just wanted to let you all know that Sharon's mom passed away this morning. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers, and please be thinking of Sharon and her family in the days to come.

Anyway, we will be flying into MCO on Friday the 22 and are planning on going on to Cape Canaveral/Cocoa Beach that night (we arrive at 8:30 pm). Does anyone have any good transporation info they can pass on - we'll be 5 adults and 2 mid-sized munchkins (and ALL the luggage). LOL. We're debating about doing one-way car rentals but didn't know if there was something cheaper/easier, etc.

Thanks for the advice! And I'm looking forward to getting to know people here and hopefully meeting on the boat!


Hi Chiara and welcome! Sorry it seems you stepped in at a sad moment.

Car rental is probably cheaper, but not so much easier. Maybe not even cheaper once you get a vehicle big enough for everyone and the luggage.
I would check online with some of the companies that offer transportation.
FLTours, Happy Limo, Tiffany Towncar, and ******** Limo are some of the choices. Limos start at about $325 and go upwards from there. They will take you from the airport, to your hotel and then to port....along with picking you back up at the port and taking you back to the airport or to WDW if you're going there afterward.


Which Mexican Riviera cruise were you on? We went last summer also.

Looks like the DIS won't let me mention that last one. You can PM me if you want the name of it.

Just an update. My mom died very peacefully this morning. Everyone was suprised it went so quickly, especially the hospice nurses. My sister & I were there holding her hands, I guess when you are ready to go home, you are ready. We as a family laughed & cried all day. But everyone, including brothers, sisters,my step son, nieces, nephews, grand nieces & nephews showed up to give their respect. It was awesome to see. I am sad but at the same time, not. What quality of life did she have. We sometimes are more kind to our pets than we are to our family. She is up there with my dad, my sister, my husband, and other family members..and she once again remembers all & is happily running around without any dimentia to limit her.

Sharon, I am so sorry for your loss. We went through the same thing with my mom as far as how quickly it went but believe me it was a blessing for all of you, especially her.

We had a great experience with a transportation company the last time we went on DCL - I'd recommend them. It won't let me post the name but send me a PM and I'll share!

Well this is wayyy OT and I'm not really sure what thread this is on, but I just did a search here for Larry Fitzgerald and found this post....

So...wondering if you (or anyone else) saw the interview with Larry Fitzgerald the day after the Super Bowl on The Today Show (or maybe it was Good Morning America..?)

I'm trying to find it on youtube, have googled it too, and can't find it. It was so sweet, about his mother that had passed away, and I think it'd help a dear friend who is also grieving right now.

Anyone see it or know how to find it on line?

TIA.

Thank you all for the wonderful thoughts & prayers. And thanks Stace for the link on Larry Fitzgerald. It was a heart warming story. That almost happened between my dad & I before he passed away. Many times I have thanked the Lord that we had kissed & made up before he died. I went to work today (I work in a private country club) because it was a suprise birthday party for a beautiful & lovely 50 year old member. I wouldn't have missed working her party for the world, though they tried to get me to take some time off. Little did I know that another waiter friend of mine had told a group of these members that my mom had died. Well, the word spread like wildfire & before the night ended tonight, I bet I had 100 hugs & heartfelt words. It was an amazing night & I am so glad I made the decision to work. The membership in my club has so many wonderful people. They consider me a friend and part of their family.
