I twisted DH's arm a little to stick with Disney but truly because I believe it is the right choice for us! We will fly into Miami the day before and stay at the airport hotel and then take the Disney transfers to the ship in the morning. The cruise only stops in Cozumel and Castaway Cay. We will probably book an excursion for Cozumel but just enjoy Castaway Cay for what it has to offer on it's own. I am so excited! Figuring out what to pack seems like the biggest nightmare though, lol.  I'm still open to any advice people have and am planning on going back to read old cruise reports if possible!

How exciting!!!   You and your family will have a wonderful time.    The Disney cruise we went on was out of Galveston, so didn't port in Castaway Cay - but I've read that is a really incredible island.      I can't wait to read the report!

I have heard good things too Deb! Anthony is too young for most shore excursions/experiences on Castaway Cay (seems like 5 is the magic number and he will have just turned 4) but since the point of this trip is too relax a beach day will be good! I am very excited!

That's so awesome!!! I can't wait to hear about it Smile I've been wanting to do a cruise, but haven't convinved DH. He finally said a while back that he might consider a cruise at some point, but doesn't want it to be a Disney one. I was like, well then what's the point, lol! 

I don't know anything about DCL other than what I've heard second-hand, but I've never heard of anyone not having a good time so I know you will have a blast!

Oh how wonderful!  We are hoping to do DCL next summer.  Long story, but we're waiting to see if Mitchell goes on this 23 day trip out west this summer (he is on the alternate list).  If he goes this summer, we will cruise next summer.  If not, we may have to wait another year Frown

Can't wait to hear all about it!  Oh, and the Passporter Moms did a podcast on cruising just a few weeks ago.  You should listen to it Smile

Thanks guys! M'Shel, I listened to that podcast before booking, it had some good info! Thank you.  DH surprised me over the weekend and suggested we add a few days in the parks but sadly it really isn't possible... We are already pulling Gabi from school for 4 days and I don't feel comfortable with more than that.  He is now saying if we like this cruise maybe we'll plan a true land and sea trip next!
