  1. The forum is still having issues with Tapatalk.
  2. I would be happy with sea days and visiting Castaway Cay.
  3. The offer the kids food for meal times but they don't ensure they will sit down and eat. We would pickup our kids for lunch or snacks and tell them they can go back after they finish their food. Our oldest is a picky and slow eater but he would devour his plate of chicken tenders and fries from up on the pool deck or Cabanas. If your kids don't like to sit for a 2hr dinner, you can ask the CM to have their dinner expedited and check them into the club once they are done.
  4. Make sure the room you are booking your daughters has 4 beds. Some of the rooms in the same CAT sleep different number of beds.
  5. It's all about what is best for you. Deck 9/10 is great for quick 1 flight of stairs up to the pool deck but you will hear some noise from Cabanas. Deck 5/6 is nice if you have kids in the kids club and puts you closer to the activities on decks 3/4/5. But then you are an elevator ride or 5 flights of stairs away from the pool deck. Deck 8 has the aft laundry room, for the longer cruises it's nice for not having to take your luggage up/down a floor or to the other end of the ship. Almost every section/ floor has something that can make it the best room for someone but also the worst room for someone else.

  7. You could do a 1 day car rental and stay out at a hotel in Port Canaveral, that way your 1y/o cand play in the sand and ocean. WDW is the wrong direction from MCO and you will spend a lot of time sitting in buses.
  8. I suggest calling and talking with a cast-member to get verification and to go over the medical concerns. You can bring aboard the pediasure, if it's a liquid, you are suppose to bring is aboard with you and not in the luggage. Given that this is related to dietary restrictions, they might have a way of holding the pediasure, so that you don't have to lug it around the ship before your room is ready. I suspect the kitchen will have no problems making pureed food for you, seeing as this is a dietary restriction, they will need to go over it with you. Also, on the first dinner, the head waiter will come over and re-verify the dietary restrictions with you. You can request a private table if you want, but there is not much space between the tables. No one will have an issue if you bring a ipad or phone for videos at dinner. The dinning rooms can get noisy, if he is ok with things on his ears, you could bring a set of isolating headphones. My oldest had sound issues and would wear earmuffs around the ship, especially for the shows and and deck performances. There are open house times for the kids club where you can stay in there with him. That way he can still play and you can get the pictures of him crawling thru Slinky Dog.
  9. Here is a link to the ship deck plans. Disney assigns a higher price to the larger rooms that are on the higher decks. So, if you want cheaper, stay on a lower deck in the smaller sized room and be willing to have a partially blocked view. Generally the queen beds face parallel to the direction of travel, some have you laying with your feet towards the bow and others with your head towards the bow. The flip over couch and ceiling drop down beds have you laying sideways to the direction of travel. The bed that drops down from the wall matches the queen bed. The inner rooms and the rooms across the bow and stern are the exceptions to the rule. The pictures across the top of the deck plan show the normal rooms. For the rooms that have a connecting door, indicated with the < or > between the walls, the Queen bed is on the opposite wall. Look at rooms 6080 and 6082. 6080 has your head facing the bow and feet to the stern. 6082 has your feet facing the bow and your head facing the stern. if you look closely at the room pictures you can see the connecting door at the foot of the queen bed. For the rooms that don't have the </> you will have to look up pictures online. Generally the Dream and Fantasy have matching deck plans and room layouts.
  10. You could ask room service to bring a hot water in the insulated coffee pitcher.
  11. I lot of micobrews only come in cans or on tap.
  12. From the latest deck plan, the classics (Wounder and Magic) it looks like there are laundry rooms on decks 2, 6 and 7. The Dream and Fantasy have them on every floor that has a state room, except Concierge levels (11 and 12). They use the KTTW card for payment. The detergent is expensive onboard, I suggest packing pod detergent. On our Alaska cruise, the laundry facilities were very busy on days at sea and the last day of the cruise. Here is the deck plans for the Magic and Wounder. Most of the WDW resort laundry machines will use your magic band for payment, but some still use coins or credit cards.
  13. At one time DCL was accepting shipments for the state room. Is that still allowed? If it is, you could place an Amazon order and get a restocking shipment to your room. Or if you are renting a car to go from WDW to PC, you can make a stop at Walmart. If you have 4 or more people, it would be cheaper to rent a car. You would need a baby seat, but you can use the baby seat on the plane.
