  1. Day two started early. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Orangeburg SC and it was clean, comfortable and just what we needed. We left Orangeburg at 4am and arrived at the Vineland Character Warehouse for 10am. We waited about 40 mins to get into the warehouse, spent 10 minutes shopping and another 40 minutes in line to pay. Left with a decent amount of stuff. We arrived to POP around 1:45 and our room was ready. We decided to grab a bite to eat and then head to Hollywood Studios. We took the new Skyliner over to HS and it was absolutely amazing - no wait and took about 7 mins to get to the park. Got the kids some pins for trading, did TOT with a fastpass, watched the Star Wars show, watched Indiana Jones. We then visited Galaxy's Edge - felt like we were in a whole new world. The kids met Vi who took them around the park staying in character the entire time. We tried Oga's Cantina but none of us liked the drinks we got (blue milk and something that numbs your mouth) waited 40 mins for Smugglers Run (amazing.. only downside is if you are anything but a pilot you are paying more attention to the buttons beside you then the screen in front of you) We then walked on to Star Tours and decided to go back to the room for a short swim and showers. Tomorrow we are hitting up Hollywood Studios again where we will be rope dropping Toy Story Land and building droids.
  2. We plan on driving to the parks. However will be trying the Gondola to see how efficient it is.
  3. We started our journey at 2:15 am from North of Toronto. With a few pit stops on the way, we made it to Orangeburg SC around 6pm. We booked and prepaid our hotel in advance and when we arrived to the Country Inn and Suites they told us our reservation had been cancelled in August and they were fully booked. (We received no notice or refund and even received an email on Tuesday reminding us of our stay) After about 45 minutes on the phone with hotels.com we are finally in a room at the Hampton Inn and Suites with a credit from hotels.com. Tomorrow morning we do the rest of the trip to POP Century with a stop at the Character Warehouse first. Super excited to share this trip with you, hopefully we don't have too many more surprises.
  4. Do the kids need to have the seapass cards on them at all times?? Can I carry the cards in my lanyard? Do they need them at the kids club?
  5. Yes we plan on doing it the Friday as we have that day free (aside from a Character breakfast in the morning) will look into the Sunpass thank you.
  6. Thank you, we can't even sleep without a fan at home, not sure how I didn't think of one. hangers.. they are now on my list
  7. I already have too many clothes (more my kids then us adults) i have a dedicated bag for Disney outfits (yes I have special Disney outfits for the kids) along with the Princess dresses and party dresses my daughter wanted for the cruise.
  8. Thank you, I thought of highlighters when I first starting planning, but did forget so will add that to my list.
  9. Thank you, we have suits and dresses all ready to go. We don't have many opportunities to dress up so we are definitely taking it on the cruise. We will be on the independence, so I will make sure the kids have closed toed shoes for rock climbing. We are super excited it's been a tough year
  10. Good Morning, We are getting ready to leave on Saturday morning (super early) from Toronto to Florida (driving), where we will be spending 5 jam packed days at Disney World and then driving to Fort Lauderdale to embark on our first cruise. It will be myself, my husband and our two kids dd6 and ds11. I have only started really travelling the last 6 years started with small trips to Cleveland, Pittsburgh, shopping trips Went to Punta Cana for my sisters wedding - while I was pregnant (need I say more) Myrtle Beach (20 people in our party) New York (twice - can`t wait to go back) Tokyo (amazing definitely need to visit at least once) Disney (this will be our second time) I looked at some lists about what to pack for the cruise so I did get the magnetic hooks, shoe hanger for the door. What could you do without, what was the one thing you would recommend to others? I plan on writing a review about our first cruise. Is anyone interested in hearing about Disney as well? Thanks for reading
  11. If you take your own luggage, what is the latest you could possibly get off the ship? Wondering if we would make an auto train 4 hours away at 2pm
  12. When doing the BOGO dining or the 3 day dining it states $30-35 will be put towards the food portion of your meal. So you would have to pay out of pocket for an appetizer and dessert? I am assuming most entrees are around $30
