There may be more of US then there are of THEM!

I would post a pic but, sorry to say, the rules of the Witness Protection Program does not permit the posting of pictures!

Actually...I don't have tech skills to know how to post a Pic!

I am just sick that that I am not on the cruise as well. I'm a teacher and time off in May is virtually impossible.

I'd post a pic, but none of them do my beauty justice. ;)

I'm not going on the cruise, either. We're going to the world at the end of May, so 2 trips in May just isn't something we could do.

I'm not on the podcast cruise either, but only because they don't let super pregnant women on board! Otherwise, the big baby belly and I would so be there.

Maybe if they hadn't booked it for Mother's Day . . . and I am the Mother . . . who wanted to go solo . . . I could have went. :laughing: My DH is very understanding of my Disney addiction, but after my solo Mousefest trip, I thought that might be pushing it.

Wow, I could have posted the exact same thing. I thought after MF, I would definitely be pushing my luck! Although, I am now committed to attending a 60th anniversary party in PA for my grandparents that weekend, so I do still get a solo trip for Mother's Day (DH and kids aren't going, we were all just there), just not on the Podcast Cruise. Hopefully there will be a next time!

Hi, My name is Sharon and I can't go on the podcast cruise. I really, really feel like I'm missing out on something that's going to be pretty special.
On the other hand, the reason we can't go is because we're going to PERU!!!!
To top it off on our trip home we're stopping off at Orlando for 3 days at AKV to rest up. :rotfl:

Hi Everyone!

I'm Daneen and I'm a non-cruiser :sad1:

We choose not to take our children out of school for vacation AND we simply cannot afford the cost of the cross country trip + cruise. I wish, I wish, I wish I could say I was going. To be honest, I feel a bit left out, but I'll get over it.

I am hoping that I get to meet some DIS folks in DL in September, which I am very much looking forward to. :cool1::cool1:

Hi, I'm Lisa and I'm not going on the Podcast Cruise anymore! I had to cancel our reservations, actually I made my DH cancel, I couldn't do it...too painful!

The funny thing is that the cruise was a bd, anniversary, Christmas gift to me, so I keep joking and asking, so what's my new gift? DH doesn't think it's that funny.

I'm bummed, My mom, who watches the kids and my handicapped dad, is going on vacation at that same time...and she's having a mini reunion with her 6 brothers and sisters, which most of them are in their 80's. I couldn't take that away from her.

I'm counting on another Podcast Cruise!:)

Hi, I'm Lori and not going on the cruise.

It's killing me because I love cruises. I did cruise on the Magic in 2003. It just happened to be the last time I cruised, so I'm so due for another. We couldn't dock at Castaway Cay, so I really need a do-over!

I couldn't go on this cruise for a couple of reasons. I didn't feel right going on a cruise on Mother's Day without my mom, and she really would not want to do the podcast cruise. And I do travel solo, and I don't always have a travel expense-sharing trip roomie.

I refuse to pay single supplements! :headache:

So another time...with a trip roomie I'd be all over that action.
I'd like to go to Peru with Sharon. :laughing:

Hi I'm Beth and i'm a noncruiser.....:sad1: :sad1: :sad1:

i was originally scheduled to, but then my son and future daughter-in-law decided to have their wedding on may 11th (after i'd told them the ONLY week they couldn't do it was the week of may 10th..:sad2: )

anyway, i've rescheduled the cruise for labor day weekend...
i'm taking my mom and sister - and DD asked if she could come along, so i guess it will be the 4 of us girls....3 generations...

and after the cruise i have reservations for free dining at the pop century..

as for a picture, you can find one or two on my facebook profile page...

My name is Pam, also--and I am phobic of cruising---saw a show on how the WDW ships were welded together from two pieces, and thought then and there NEVER!!---BUT then? But then? Serveral podcasts later and after learning that Pete's mom was able to go on the cruise and then all of the podcast chatter made me think, MAYBE...so low and behold, my family has a WONDER cruise planned for NEXT week, BUT not for the Podcast Cruise, soooo, do I still count to come to this thread's support group???

I actually really, really do need your support fer reals as our 10 year old ONLY son has been quite ill since all of the way back to January---MANY biopsies, specialists, meds later, and his diagnosis is gastropereseis or possibly abdominal migraines---one issue that goes along with these is MOTION SICKNESS---so long story short, we a re DOUBTFUL even for the non-podcast cruise now for next week---UGH!

My name is Jenni, and I too, am not cruising.

At first, DH wasn't even going to let us go to WDW this year. :sad2: First, I tried quiet subtle whining. With all the overtime I'm working, and all the pressure I'm under at work, I really wanted something to look forward to. Finally, he agreed to at least letting me find out what a reservation would be when I got a PIN code via e-mail. And then, when I told him about the 100 point minimum for DVC purchase at AKV (our favorite resort), after he had some time to think...he agreed! :woohoo: So now I get to go to WDW during my beloved Food & Wine in October. It's not the Podcast Cruise, but I'm almost as happy!! :banana:

And we are wanting to wait to take a cruise until our youngest is at least four, so maybe next year.


My name is Jenni, and I too, am not cruising.

Hi Jenni! (BTW, I spell my name that way too).

Very cool that there are two other gals on here that spell Jenni with an I instead of a Y. I used to tell people that is just Jennifer with the fer cut off. :)

Hi, I'm Pamela and I'm not going on the podcast cruise :sad2:

I've been offline for a couple months, so am mostly out of touch other than occasional marathon bouts of listening to the podcasts.

I think the cruisers are going to have a wonderful time - all the stuff they are doing and the chattiness remind me of last summer. My family was very fortunate and went on the Eastbound Panama Canal cruise - we had over 500 DIS folks (counting family members) and it was a blast! That cruise is the main reason I can't do the podcast cruise. DS9 missed the first 5 days of 4th grade and I just can't get away with pulling him out again. (There is a cap of 8 days missed before it becomes an "issue") And I don't think DS & DH would ever forgive me if I did a DCL cruise without them :rolleyes:

On the plus side, we are going to WDW in June (after school is out) to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We spent part of our honeymoon at WDW (DH's 1st trip!) and stayed at the brand new Grand Floridian. So that makes up a little for missing the podcast cruise - but I am sad not to get a chance to meet the podcast team.

I am hearing all the things that the cruisers get to do (chat and podcast) and am a bit envious, but not in a mean way! I hope you guys all have a blast, and have a bit of fun for us too!

Someday our "ship" will come in.. ok lame joke :lmao:

I just wanted to second that I am also a teacher and cannot take off time in May because we do not get vacation days (yeah, yeah, we get summers off...I understand that). The description on today's show of the guest speaker sounds incredible!

My name is Elaine and we planned to go on the podcast cruise but then my brother-in-law booked his wedding the day the cruise leaves. We cruised on the Wonder in February instead and got the opportunity to do a bounce-back cruise in December so it's some consolation.

Hope y'all have a terrific time.

Add us to the list as well. We were actually originally booked for the cruise but then DBF got a leave replacement teaching position and well, there ya go...teachers do NOT get off in May..so we had to cancel. We are booked for end of July though with the buy 4 get 3 nights free promo so we are not too bummed. Our pic is in my avatar. That is a pic of us on the monorail...we took it of ourselves.

I'm not too bothered with all the cruise talk. Interested to hear all the stories when they get back!

My name is Scott and me and my family aren't going on the Podcast Cruise...

BUT....

We are going back Disney for two weeks of free dining (acutally discounted deluxe dining) in Sept/Oct. (our 4th two week trip in the last 5 years) and it's during my birthday and it's during food and wine

So I guess I really can't complain.

Hello, my name is Ann....and I am not going on the Podcast Cruise. Worse, I'm not going to Disney at all as originally planned this May, as my dad broke his hip in January and is still recovering.

Oh well, there's always next year!

Luckily, with the 4/3 promo, I am able to go to WDW with a friend the first week in May. There would be no way that I would be able to get my DH to go on a podcast cruise. Ever. So.....<sniff>

I would've gone in a hot minute if it weren't for our state standardized testing (well that and the fact that I'm a teacher....they might have missed me for a few days.)

I'm sorry to all of those that can't go :( I wish we could all attend. Oh how much fun that would be. My DD8 is upset because we are going on the cruise (she's excited about that part), and she is going to miss a baseball game that her entire school is going to. Whle her school is at the baseball game, she will be in the MK. But, it's hard for her to realize how fortunate and lucky she is when she's having to miss out on something.

I just wanted to say that it's great to see the faces of so many of you!!!

Hi! I'm Kim and I'm not going on the Podcast Cruise either. I booked a nice stay at the BWV for my DH's birthday at the DVC 11 month mark and wasn't going to change it. I also know that my DH would have felt "left out" and would have been wondering where his wife was on the podcast cruise. When we vacation we do so to be together as a family and I'm pretty sure I would be leaving them a lot on that cruise.

The upside is because of all the cruise talk on the podcast I booked a 7 night DCL cruise right after my stay at BWV!

i'm not on the cruise either...originally because that was the week i was going to be in WDW anyway, but then i didn't graduate college in January so that's not happening either!!

AND...May 10 is my birthday. :sad:
i would have loved to have gone solo! But my private pilot flight test is May 12, so there is really no way around it...sigh.

My name is Jen, and I'm not going either. No trips at all for us in 2009 - we have a big family get-together planned for 2010. I vote for the next one in 2011...I can't swing both a cruise and a week's vacation down there in one year, no matter how much fun it would be! As a teacher, I'd love a summer (or break-time) cruise, but I'm seriously considering just taking time off for the next one. It's easier since I've gotten DH hooked on the podcast now, too. We got our Tshirts Thursday - :woohoo:!! But I sure can't wait to hear about this one!

Well, clearly the Jenni, Jen, Jennifer contingent will NOT be well represented on the podcast cruise! Perhaps there should be a special Jen/Jenni/Jennifer section for the next one!

My name is Chad, and I shan't be going on the cruise (or any other cruise).


timing isn't right - kids in school, and more
money not right
due to special diet, cruise wouldn't be worthwhile
due to our love for the environment, we have decided not to support cruising industry until they improve their emissions standards and more :snooty:


Hopefully, with Disney's new environmental initiative, their new ships will be better in this last regard. (50% of entire company's carbon emissions come from DCL!)

Otherwise, I would absolutely love to go.

I'm a huge fan of the podcasts and, being a teacher can't have that time of year off so I will just live vicariously through all of you who are going and continue to enjoy hearing all about the prep on the podcast. What Kevin said about that guy who will be talking about all of the Disney history had me drooling today, SO bummed we can't go:sad2:Oh well, maybe if there is another one someday we will be able to go. For those of you who ARE going, HAVE A BLAST!!!!:thumbsup2

My name is Sharon, and I too am not going. One perk of being a teacher is that you get a lot of time off. The one bad thing about it is that it limits you to school breaks, and taking time at other times of the year is almost impossible. Hopefully a future podcast cruise will be in the summer months to accomodate us educators!

That would be amazing!!! (amazing must be said in your best Bear Grylls voice) Both boys will be old enough, it'll be time for a mid-year trip since we can't take our oldest out of school the second half of the next school year and I can start learning/studying up on the ins and outs of cruising now. WOOHOO!!

Question for those in chat last night... how do you chat when American Idol or Lie to Me is on?!?!?!? I guess I could grab the laptop and sit in the living room but I don't want to miss Lambert performing anything. :)
