  1. If you have the suites package you get free drinks. I suppose you can order that in the morning for breakfast in luminae. One of the best treats onboard is Luminae! We found the food to be great! No need to go to the speciality restaurants. It's so easy to meet people there and talk about your days experience.

    Yes you are right. Nothing special about the airport Mariott. We are loyal to that brand as my husband is a platinum elite for life. So we always choose Marriott if it's available. Plus the price there is usually competitive with other Hotels in the area

    We have been in 12028 and didn't notice any noise. We like deck 12 over deck 11 because of the convenience to the lounge. We have stayed in many different rooms and all are great!

    We have found a plan that works well for us when staying at Disney and cruising. We have gotten to the boat after 2 pm when we take the transportation from the resorts. We don't like getting there that late!! So now we take the magical express to the airport the night before our cruise. You can leave whenever you want. Just back that up a few hours for the magical express. Last summer we left for the airport at 7 pm for a "10pm" flight. We spend the night at the Marriott by the airport. They offer a free shuttle to/from the airport. The day of our cruise we get to the airport after a short 5 minute ride. They drop you off right next to where you need to hand over your luggage for the cruise. It's very easy! Then we take the ship transportation to the ship. It takes a little less than an hour so you can plan accordingly. It's on our time frame when we want to go. When you get to the airport for check in you just line up and get on a bus. No assigned pick up time. You decide. This works well for us. We cruise 2 times a year and tie a trip to Disney with it. We have been doing this for several years with no problems. Hope this "trick" can work for you. Also if you are DVC you don't have to use weekend points for the Friday night stay. The price at the Marriott for 1 night is much cheaper.
