You will need ESTA at the land border. You will not go through US Immigration when you board the ship. If you are visiting the Bahamas or Caribbean, you will not go through US Imm. when you reboard.

Hi Jersey,

I have crossed numerous times before from Canada into the U.S admittedly not going on vacation but just staying over for a day or two at a time. I have never been asked for an ESTA yet and just presented my Perm Res Card and passport. I mean its no big deal. I would sooner have it in my hand and be worry free than having my wife stare at me with that look of death glare!!

Thanks

You don’t need ESTA...you will need a VWP which you pay for at the border for a few $.

Thanks Jersey

I do remember one time when we were going across for a trip and we had to go into the building and fill out a bunch of paper work before getting a little green piece of paper attached inside our passports!
If thats what it takes then no worries. We plan to leave at stupid o'clock anyways to get across the border with minimal hassle. However with the whole Government shutdown going on at the minute you never know!!

Fingers Crossed

Regards

We are contemplating going to Disney World. Our three kids are 13, 11 and 9 and would really get the value out of a day on gut wrenching rides unlike their father!!
all of the Excursions look to be priced at a premium and I was wondering what previous holiday makers experiences were? Royal Caribbean are running transportation to the parks with a designated drop off and pick up time so that you make it back to the ship which is what my wife is panicking about!!
Is it worth it trying to organise cheaper travel to and from the park or do you just go along with the herd? Where is the best place to purchase park entrance tickets?

Thanks for your help

Regards

Farmboy
Sorry but your kids would be disappointed in Disney World and the so called gut wrenching rides. Instead take them to Universal. A new and fantastic park. I was there last year with the grandkids and we did both Disney and Universal. Vowed never to go back to Disney. It is old and tired. Universal is new, bright, great rides and displays.
