Anybody Want to Share a Limo from CBR?

With all this talk of alternative transportation, we've decided to cancel our DME from the resort to Tiffany. There are 6 of us, but the vehicle we'd be taking can take up to 10.

Anybody care to share the cost? Total amount is $170 plus 20% tip, but under $200 to be appropriately split.

Oh Barry--we might drop our towncar and ride with you. They will usually pick up at two resorts for a minimal amount more ($10-$20). WE would save a bit AND get to meet you sooner. How soon do you plan to arrive at the terminal?

OK, so what's this P90x Ab Ripper?

A little about us, we are from just north of Dallas. My husband and I have lived here all our lives. We have been on about 5 Carnival cruises, but this is our first Disney Cruise. We have heard nothing but wonderful things about them, and are so excited for this one! We have been to St. Croix & St. Thomas, but never with our kids (5.5 and 1.5), so this should be interesting.

So, does anyone know if there are specific nights for adult entertainment that I should try to get the little one into babysitting for? It's good to hear that this cruise may not be super full if we want to add babysitting on board. What else do I need to know?

Anyone know anything about the Dolphin Encounter in Tortola? I was thinking my daughter may like that one, and my son can just watch. What about CC? I was thinking of not booking anything there, and just playing it by ear when we get there. There isn't a whole lot you can do with a 1.5 yo, so beach time is the main thing on our agenda.

How will I know you guys when I get aboard? How formal are the formal nights? I'm sure I'll think of more questions, but for now, that's what I got. Thanks again, and I will keep reading back posts to get us much info, and get to "know" you guys as much as possible!

THANKS!
Michelle
My experience has been there are no really late nights on the cruise. Since everyone is traveling with family and the days are so filled with adventure the ship shuts down fairly early. There are some adult shows later in the evening but you might want to check the kids activities areas for hours of operation before you book a babysitter. I have never had really little ones on the cruise so not sure how late that one stays open. Welcome to the site!

Sounds to me that it rips your abs right out of you, so it gives your stomach extra room to store all that Disney Cruise food!

I am still interested, but have you called Tiffany, or did you just read the website? I read it that the $170 is for a 7 passenger van and it is $75 more for 8-10 passengers, but I may be wrong--it is very unclear.

I did call Tiffany and I understand that the $170 covers the whole van, so if we fill it with 10 people, which would be us, then it's $17 per person, plus tip, one way.

I know the club and lab are open until either midnight or 1:00 (whichever it is, it is hilarious to watch the adult club empty out all of the sudden 4 minutes before the kids' clubs close). I don't know how late Flounders is open though. Marika "babysat" a friend's cone once on teh cruise. They wanted him to sleep and not need to be moved (mats are provided so the kids all fall asleep in the clubs too) and Marika is always ready to curl up with a good book or moie after late dining so she was more than happy to read/watch TV in their room and call if there was a problem (he never once woke up) and earn a little money in the process Michelle, any chance you are traveling with someone with a tween/teen that you trust? That worked so well.

Mom the outsourcing agent. Ever thought of starting a recruiting company out there in Heidleburg?

Not trying to outsource Marika (she may want to do the kids' clubs activities this time--anyhting is possible) Just trying to give moms some ideas. Really

Thanks for the prayers and pixie dust. It must have worked because it doesn't seem that the calcium deposits have really changed since the last mamo, so I just have to go back in 6 months for another one. Thanks for the terriffic advice as well. I even managed to sleep last night. You cannot imagine how much all of you helped.

This is going to be such a great cruise.

See you all on the ship!


Congrats to you too Tower.

Since we now have 16 cabins participating, days will be at least doubled up.

Thanks! Looking forward to it all (can't believe it is under a month now!)

This time next month, we'll be meeting for breakfast!!

Fluvanna
Since we only had 6 sign up and we were in August I thought it would nice to receive a gift each day for little ones.... now that we are at 15 dis'ers everyone can pretty much deliver what ever day they would like... but if everyone who did pick a day could please deliver that day so as we can still have a little surprise each day....if you cannot deliver that day let me know....Thanks

If anyone would like for me to put them down for a day just let know and I will update the list...sending it out at 5pm CST just waiting for 1 person to send me their info...

I received the lanyards and holders in the mail today, and they look great. To date, I have received $103 in donations for the lanyards. If you would like to contribute (any amount $5-$40 is welcome), please PM me. Hadley is going to contribute at the port to avoid shipping delays/costs, but even after her donation and mine, I am hoping to get another $50 gathered to cover the rest of the costs including the badge printing. Anyone feeling generous?
Can you please let me know if the badges for the holders need to be portrait or landscape...Thanks

My kiddo's are 5 and 19 months. I would like to book a couple evenings of babysitting for the little one, but not sure which nights to select. Does anyone have any insight on the itinerary?

Also, any suggestions on family friendly excursions for my age kids at the ports would be appreciated! We can't wait to see everyone for a fantastic time!

Hadley, wish I had a teen or Grandma going to help, but we're on our own this go round. Honestly, DH will probably be ready for bed by 10 PM, so we should be ok. I'm the party animal in this marriage.
