Re: Disney Bluray Update

Spot on Greg - Last year, we only saw Star Wars in the cinema - same this year so far, only Rogue One.  I've haven't seen any other movies on the big screen - Disney or other.  There are a number of reasons for that, busy lives looking after elderly parents is one, but also we do have a big TV and t...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

There is quite a bit of price difference between the two options (again because the Riviera cruise is a one-off so more demand).   That said, I'm still preferring the second, longer option.  You have to factor in that the cruises depart San Diego on a Sunday , so that means if we pick option 1, the ...

Re: Disney Bluray Update

Thanks Rebecca. That's a great offer. I understand it is across their range and you get the cheapest one free.

Re: Greg's 2017 Shanghai trip

Pirates is a great ride. I don't think it is the best ride in the world but it is up there.

Re: Disney Bluray Update

The release windows are definitely getting shorter and shorter - we never even got to see it in the theatre as we were overseas.  By the time we got back, it was only doing a lunchtime session or a late night session so we never saw it.  I'm just waiting for the Bluray now.

Re: Greg's 2017 Shanghai trip

Thanks for the updates Greg.  I have to admit that I never noticed the food prices - I think I was probably using the wrong conversion rate when I was over there and was left blissfully unaware of the costs LOL. I also never saw any 'bad' behaviour - except for the lady selling counterfeit Disney go...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

I think they are more expensive due to supply and demand. There are so many Caribbean cruises by Disney and others, but only a handful of Mexican west coast cruises so it forces prices up.

Re: Greg's 2017 Shanghai trip

There is a Starbucks outside the entrance but I can't remember if it was open early or not. I imagine it would be.

Re: 2018 Club Trip

Okay - so those are the options above, now for my personal opinion. I've never heard of anyone getting off a Disney cruise and saying - "gee...I wish I had spent less time on that ship!" - so I personally am voting for option 2 and the 7-night cruise. I think the itinerary is better and th...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

Okay - now I've got a bit more time to write something substantial. I've spoken to Wayne and we have a couple of options for the club trip and we are interested in hearing your thoughts.  As Greg says - the bookings commence in 6 days time, but I think we'll have a bit more time than that.  The crui...

Re: 2018 Club Trip

The dates have been released!

I'm just on my phone at the moment so I'll post more later but the seven night cruise departs 7 October from San Diego.

I'll speak to Wayne over the weekend as we settle on our plans. The cruise bookings open on 18 May, so no rush!
