congrats on your choice to do the disney dream. We also will be on it april 2011 as a family of 5. Grandpa and grandma, son, daughter in law and lil 6 yr. Old grandaughter. We are treating them all.
We sailed in 2007 on the wonder with other grandkids and again i say......noone does it like disney!
We were a bit more generous to the man who tened our cabin cleaning. They work hard and deserve a bit more for picking up after us. Stayed with the amount to waiters but not the head fella of dining room.........we found he really did nothing!
We found no hidden costs. If you buy alcohol then it's x-tra. Any pictures taken onboard can be bought. That is x-tra but i would not expect that to be a freebe so i buy the big photo package in advance.
Your going to love it. All food andd non alcoholic beverages included. Of course if you shop in the gift shop that is x-tra. Parking in the garage at port canaveral is x-tra but expected. Anything in the refrig. In the cabin is x-tra so be aware. There is so much to eat onboard we did not need to take from the refrig.
