    OK – Who is planning for Disney after the cruise? Any idea how many of us are required for group rate and isn’t there a radio host somewhere that we know who has a hookup at Disney?

    Some are staying after the cruise, but we are going for a week+ before the cruise. Doing some traveling around but will be back in Barcelona the Friday before the cruise leaves. Going to spend Saturday exploring Barcelona and of course the sail away party. 😁
