Two New Northern Europe Ports for Disney Cruise Line in 2019

intercot.com - Thu, 2018-07-12 01:37
Disney Cruise Line has shared more details on its two new 2019 Northern Europe Ports-of-Call:

The first is the picturesque port town of Nynäshamn, which provides a scenic gateway for guests to visit Stockholm, Sweden’s vibrant capital city boasting incredible medieval sites, lush parks and a charming waterfront area. The second is Gothenburg, a diverse metropolis bursting with fun family activities and known for its breathtaking coastline, wondrous archipelago and world-class dining.

Nynäshamn

This small, modern town offers some impressive sights of its own, plus access to the rich history, art and culture of Stockholm. Here are some tips for making the most of your day at port:

Before heading to the big city, don’t miss your chance to check out some of the area’s famous Viking rune stones. There are 27 of these ancient structures — you can find several of them along the old road between Djursnäs and Vansta.

When you arrive in Stockholm, spend some time exploring the medieval streets of Gamla Stan, the city’s old town. Brimming with heritage and charm, this area is home to marvelous palaces and mansions and centuries-old churches and cathedrals.

Be sure to visit one or two of Stockholm’s 100-plus museums devoted to the preservation and display of European paintings, sculptures and handicrafts. Two of the most popular are the renowned Nationalmuseum — it houses 16,000 paintings and 30,000 other works of art, including pieces by masters like Rembrandt, Alexander Roslin and Carl Larsson — and the Vasa Museum, which was specially built to preserve the world’s oldest ship, along with the 40,000 fascinating objects that were discovered with the vessel after 333 years at the bottom of the city harbor.

Take a tour of Stadshuset (Stockholm City Hall) which has stood as a marvel of modern architecture since its completion in 1923. One of the daily tours will take you through two glorious main courts, the handsome council chamber and the Blue Hall — home of the Nobel Prize banquet.

The Disney Magic will call on Nynäshamn during one special seven-night Northern Europe cruise from Copenhagen on Aug. 1, 2019.

Gothenburg

Sweden’s second-largest city has a world-class lineup of fine art, food and fun for the whole family. Here are a few recommendations for your day ashore:

Go island-hopping and explore the Gothenburg Archipelago, a chain of more than 20 islands teeming with beautiful beaches, delightful villages, and boating and fishing excursions.

Choose from Gothenburg’s many family activities: There’s something for everyone at the country’s most popular amusement park, Liseberg, which has a magnificent sculpture garden and fantastic themed rides. Kids will also love the Universeum science center, where they can go on a rainforest safari, step into a space station and conduct an experiment in a science lab. Families will also enjoy a visit to the Garden Society of Gothenburg, a verdant park abounding with tiny cafes and flowers.

Experience Gothenburg from a waterside perspective from onboard a Swedish paddan boat. A paddan boat tour is a lovely, leisurely way to explore the city’s quiet canals, low bridges and picturesque streets.

Visit the Gothenburg Museum of Art to see the city’s foremost art collection, with works by French Impressionists as well as Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso and Scandinavian masters like Edvard Munch and Carl Larsson.

Gothenburg is a featured port-of-call during two sailings in 2019: an 11-night Norwegian Fjords and Iceland cruise from Dover on July 21 and a seven-night Northern Europe cruise from Dover on Aug. 18.

FastPass+ 60 Days (+10) unfair

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-07-11 17:34
Hello,

We are headed to WDW with a party of 7 in 59 days. We are staying 10 nights, being split between the BWV and VWL (Boulder Ridge). Yesterday morning we got up at 4am to login to MDE to make our FP+ selections. 60 days out, almost to the minute with the East/West coast time difference. Slinky Dog was sold out until our 8th day. The mine train was sold out until 3pm on our 2nd day, and Flights of Passage sold out until 6pm on our 3rd day. Unreal. Tried to have a tour plan in place to make best use of our time, but had to throw it completely out the window since we had to settle for what was available. Gonna be crossing the parks and backtracking a couple times. I realize these are the most popular rides at WDW at the moment, but c'mon, man! We love to plan and thought it would be fun, but it ended up being BY FAR the most stressful and frustrating part of the process so far. Same feeling as camping out for concert tickets, being 3rd in line, and they sell out before you get to the window.

I guess the lesson is you must wait until towards the end of your trip to have a chance for certain FP+ attractions. Ran into the exact same issue making ADR's at the 180 day window with 'Ohana and Be Our Guest Dinner.

Star Wars land opening date?

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-07-11 14:41
I am kind of thinking about getting a trip down to Disneyland prior to the opening of Star Wars land (when the chaos unleashes) but would also like to try to time the trip to catch the Halloween decorations. I believe that I read that the land is supposed to open in 'Fall' of 2019. Any guesses about timing? If I planned a trip for sometime in September do you think I'd have a good chance to avoiding the madness?

Thanks all!
