I'm watching return flights closely, but so far haven't booked. Prices right now are a bit hard to swallow; I'm hoping they will come down a bit around October. We will likely fly from LA and there is enough competition on those routes that I'm not too worried about the possibility of a big increase just yet. We also have some flexibility on timing, so we can afford to wait a bit longer. Our kids get two weeks at March Break (independent school), so it's only our limited vacation time that we need to be concerned about. We will probably look to fly back on the Monday.
We're watching flights as well--waiting on SW to release their schedule for the spring. We'll be flying home the day we get off the ship, because my husband has to be back at work the next day.

Hello everyone! We're late to the game but just booked this cruise for our family of five. It will be bittersweet as we last did a cruise (also a Disney PC cruise) with my grandfather who was extremely ill at the time and has now passed away. That was in '08 or so. We're looking forward to another wonderful cruise!!

    Yes Ontario (Toronto). We planned to fly back the day of debarkation as priced out a stay in the area and the cost did not justify trying to fly back on a more expensive day.
    Sat on the fence and watch our desired flights go nowhere but up in price ($6-$700 to over $900). Constantly watching the prices and when falling for clickbait on a WJ sale email, could not believe the prices seen so jumped quick.

    Celebrating our our 35th anniversary. We’ve only done cruises without our kids. 🤪. Someday will take them when they are parents

    Nice to get caught up here. Been back a week from our European cruise and vacation. We had been away from DCL for over two years - far too long. So excited to be on a ship again in only 8 months! We really enjoyed our cruise and the ports we visited, but I could not help thinking how great it will be to be on the Wonder for 14 days with lots os sea days. :)

    Booked our SW flights when they posted the schedule. Now waiting for return trip on SW.... We've been out of town for a funeral and visiting WDW, so it's been a little hectic. Now time to settle down before we head out again :P Time to start organizing and putting together the FE gifts!

    Southwest will release reservation dates from March 7 through April 13, 2020 in about three weeks on September 26 for return flights from San Diego. Disney Cruise Line recommends NO flights out of San Diego BEFORE 11:45 AM.

    Biting my nails right now. I tried to get us into a the DVC property at DL and we are on a wait list. Can't book flights home til we know if we are going to get in to the Villas or not. Guess I can start working on NOLA hotels ressies. DH and renewed our passports last week, so we should see them in a few weeks (I hope). Glad to be getting close enough to actually be able to do stuff to get ready!! Anyone want to talk FEs yet?

    We have the same problem. Have a good neighbor hotel booked as a backup.

    Hi everyone,🙋‍♀️
    Sorry to be joining the party a little late. We have been booked since opening day. It will be my husband and I👫, our boys are in college so we get to have fun without them. We are excited to be taking our 12th DCL cruise🛳 (we have been on all 4 ships and Alaska twice). We are flying out of St Louis on SW. March can't come soon enough. Looking forward to meeting all of you.

    I just got off the Wonder in Vancouver yesterday following a 7 day Alaska cruise. One more trip and the ship goes into a brief dry dock. I am excited to see what changes are going to be made to Cove Cafe!

    My husband and I booked this cruise while we were onboard the Southern Caribbean out of San Juan in January. Now that Alaska is out of the way, I can start getting super excited for this one now!

    If you want, I can organize an FE here on our cruise thread. I did it a few years ago for our Iceland cruise. I will just keep it a simple FE without favorite character info or other options for exchanges. Let me know what you think.

    I missed the last sentence. Most of the organizing of group activities will happen on the group page on a certain social media site.
