Mobile Finally booked!

Seems so long ago I asked for advice! We are almost checked in on the 6 night western Caribbean on 29th March.
There are 2 of us. Will transfer to the port from Royal Pacific Resort and return to the Poly.
Ive used Uber a lot but never for that distance - is it a reliable way to get to the port? What time would you suggest arriving?
Im thinking Disney transport back to the Poly as there are only the 2 of us.
Excursions - not really explored the options or availability !
Any tips or suggestions for DIY welcome.
So looking forward to this trip.
Thanks for advice and help.

Thank you! I am looking forward to it. Its a very special trip - my daughter had a liver transplant at the age of 9 months. On our second day at sea we will celebrate her 30th anniversary of the surgery!
Amazing when we didnt think she would reach her 1st birthday.

Wow I didnt realise there was another child liver recipient on here! My son is 18 and had his aged 16 after he was born with liver disease and developed liver cancer. Its amazing to hear your daughter has done so well for so long x

She was very lucky, at the time things were very different and there was a lot of trial and error with the babies. Thankful every day for the courage of her donors family.
She has been very healthy and competed for team GB at several world transplant games, shes taken a break for the last couple of years. Does your son take part in the games?

No he hasnt yet, he is playing in a transplant football tournament In a couple of months though. He is doing well, his 2nd transplant anniversary is next month so its still pretty new for him. Which hospital is your daughter monitored at?

She goes to the QE in Birmingham. She was treated at the childrens hospital in Birmingham but had to have her surgery and recovery at the QE as they did not have the facilities at the CH.
Where was your son transplanted?
Im sure he will enjoy the football, we know several of the team!
Small world!
