Speaking of the Roy suite, do we have anyone in one of the larger suites for this cruise? Just curious if we were going to get a chance to see what they looked like. We had one of the aft cat 3's in June but I've never had a chance to see in the cat 2 or 1 suites.

i met someone who stayed in the walt suite. She let me come and hang out there. My goodness, it's like an entire house in there. Holy smokes lol. It was pretty though. Big big deck. They even get a dvd and vcr player with FREE movie rentals.

:eek: On a DISNEY cruise???? LOL

I think I caused a commercial or maybe a news bit, to be re-shot...on our DCL Mexican Riviera cruise. We had watched them filming while onboard. One scene showed a young woman walking past the gift shops on her way to the theater.
Anyway, I had just gotten out of the shower and heard my son and hubby hollering about a helicopter that was just outside our balcony. (We were in the Roy). So I ran to the door and opened it up...just in time to see a guy in the helicopter with a camera aimed our way. About that time I realized that I hadn't grabbed a robe:earseek: !!!!
Well, heck, there's not USUALLY anyone out there!

I'm guessing they had to do a re-take. :rotfl:

WOW! Got Stacey to admit flashing the camera crew! This thread is starting to get interesting! :teeth: :rotfl2:

We had a VCR in the cat 3 we had in June, got free movies with that but on a 3 day who the heck has time to stay in the cabin and do that???!!!

And there is no way I would have gone on the deck like Stacey did as we were right below the buffet and anyone up there had a great view down into our area.

I was amazed by how much space we had in the cat 3 as opposed to the cat 11's we were used to so I cannot imagine what the cat 1 and 2s are like. We definitely didn't need that much space for us, but with Mom in her wheelchair we needed the handicap accessible bathrooms and it was nice to have enough space to move her around and to have the dining table in the room to eat breakfast there before getting her dressed, etc. But we won't be doing that again so I doubt we will ever stay in another suite unless someone else is paying for it! Mom doesn't want to cruise again so we won't need it for her.

I am excited. We hit the one year to go mark for this cruise on the same day we go to double digits for our Hawaii trip in March and Friday is that day! :Pinkbounc :Pinkbounc

Wheeeeeeeee!!!!

Since the W Family will be down in steerage, I doubt I will get a peek into the suites! That is, unless I have to go deliver something there, or fix something.
You don't think steerage gets away without working for our berths, do ya?

We won't be near the suites either. In order to justify the price of the 10 day cruise, we booked a cat 11 stateroom. We had a cat 6 for the 2005 turkey cruise--I'm going to miss the verandah and the storage space. However, we are very happy to be on a 10 day Magic Cruise!! :cool1:

We had 8602 for last year's Christmas cruise. We loved that huge balcony for 10 nights! I knew better than to run out there fresh out of the shower.

We've had a Cat 2 twice (thank you, magical upgrades!) the Roy once, and Cat 3 8602.
We have a mid-ship 3 for the May '06 Double Dip (8534) and I honestly don't remember the room number, but a Cat 3 for this one. Not in the aft, and not mid-ship....I DO remember that much!

KatHuss
12-14-2005, 07:37 PM
We have a cat 10 on deck 2 for this one. We were going to have a cat 8 on deck 6 but then got looking at costs and we will have the same size room, just no window and it will cost us about $1300 less!!!!!

We had 8602 on the Wonder in June. Large verandah indeed! No verandah's this trip. Oh well, we aren't in the room that much anyway and if we want the air we can go up top or to deck 4 like we always do.

No, I haven't been posting much. Work and life in general tend to get in the way. That, and getting ready to cruise next week.......our inexpensive Norwegian cruise out of Houston. Great ports, though. Belize, Roatan, Coz....and we were supposed to go to Cancun, but we aren't thanks to Wilma. Still, it will be a great ALL-SNORKEL trip....no formal nights for us!!

Hey Stacey, DH is going to want to go snorkeling at least once on the 10 day next year. What are your recommendations for the BEST excursions?

It is snowing like crazy here right now. They say another 2-4 inches by tonight. Ugh. I want to be someplace warm with no snow! And tomorrow is the one year mark for our cruise!!!!!!!!

Stacey, have fun on the Norwegian cruise! I was in Houston a couple of weeks ago and met some folks that had just returned frrom that cruise. They were from Kansas City and said they loved it. They said that the day before arriving back in Houston, the cruise lines was offering them to stay onboard for a back to back for only $79 per person. They were tempted, but had to return to work, and already had flights, etc.

Is this the one that has all informal dining? Since I am just 70 miles East of Houston, I will look forward to your report on this cruise!

Does everybody know what the date is today????????????

Only one more year and we will be all waking up with GREAT BIG SMILES ON OUR FACES :teeth:

Stacey, you and your family have a great cruise and a Merry Christmas. I love the "dress down" thing...less to pack. Except, in your case, don't take that "dress down" thing too far...you exhibitionist you!!! :rotfl:

Ron..Congrats (belated) on your 3000 milestone. Geesh...more pirates pirate: . Between you and gaRry, I'll probably never see another T.O.P. again :teeth:

Well, if the cruise was today, I'd be in alot of trouble. Kat, believe me, the snow is better than what we have in store for us today. Snow, changing over to sleet, changing over to rain (no rain in ski country though :banana: :cool1: :banana: ). Gotta love New England. Definately have to fly out the night before.

Hey, a total accidental T.O.P. Everyone must still be sleeping

KatHuss

Yep!!!!!! One year from today the real fun begins!!!! :flower: ::MickeyMo :flower:

Today I feel awful. I am seriously thinking about not going to work and for me to not go to work on the day of the Christmas carry-in and party I have to be pretty sick! This darn cold has gotten into my chest, though, I think. I took Nyquil and still couldn't sleep last night! :sick:

Hi Sue....Well, Jim went to Dr the other day for his check up. Has only lost 20lbs and while that is great (for him anyway) he still needs to keep going. I bag him cheating all the time. He thinks he soooooooo smart as he sneaks those fruit roll ups out of the kitchen :rolleyes2 . His blood-sugar is better...110-130 range, but again, not great. Dad refuses to go back to the Dr so I don't know what stage he is at as far as the tumor. He seems fairly healthy , but unfortunately has moved out of my house because it was costing him over $400 a month in gas (he has an old Lincoln Towncar) to go to and from work so I am really worried since this is the time of year he has the most issues. He won't even get a flu shot and that's usually when he gets the worst, after he catches the flu. All's we can do is keep a good eye on him. Other wise everyone is healthy and happy campers. Thanks for asking.

How is Jeanne feeling?

We lucked out during the ice storm, take care.

Hey Stacey you had it right work and life in general. Santa is coming. No wait let me rephrase for my girls.

Shopping is in no way even close to being done, Christmas cards? :rotfl2: , lights :rotfl2: :rotfl2: yep dh keeps saying he'll get around to that (mmmhmmm). cookies? :laughing: . Am I giving you guys any hint to my current standing? Oh well. Family, friends,love, and giving thats what its all about. (you do the reindeer pokie and you turn yourself around...

just a reminder...

A woman, renewing her driver's license at the County Clerk's office
was asked by the woman recorder to state her occupation.

She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.

"What I mean is," explained the recorder, "do you have a job or are
you just a...?"

"Of course I have a job," snapped the woman. "I'm a Mom."

"We don't list 'Mom' as an occupation, "housewife covers it," said
the recorder emphatically.

I forgot all about her story until one day, I found myself in the
same situation, this time at our own Town Hall. The Clerk was
obviously a career woman, poised, efficient and possessed of a high
sounding title like, "Official Interrogator" or "Town Registrar."

"What is your occupation?" she probed.

What made me say it? I do not know. The words simply popped out.
*"I'm a Research Associate in the field of Child Development and
Human Relations."*
The clerk paused, ball-point pen frozen in midair and looked up as
though she had not heard right. I repeated the title slowly
emphasizing the most significant words. Then I stared with wonder as
my pronouncement was written in bold, black ink on the official
questionnaire.

"Might I ask," said the clerk with new interest, "just what you do in
your field?"

Coolly, without any trace of fluster in my voice, I heard myself
reply, "I have a continuing program of research, (what mother
doesn't) in the laboratory and in the field, (normally I would have
said indoors and out).

I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already
have four credits (all daughters). Of course, the job is one of the
most demanding in the humanities, (any mother care to disagree?) and
I often work 14 hours a day, (24 is more like it). But the job is
more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers and the rewards
are more of a satisfaction rather than just money."

There was an increasing note of respect in the clerk's voice as she
completed the form, stood up and personally ushered me to the door.

As I drove into our driveway, buoyed up by my glamorous new career, I
was greeted by my lab assistants -- ages 13, 7, and 3. Upstairs I
could hear our new experimental model, (a 6 month old baby) in the
child development program, testing out a new vocal pattern. I felt I
had scored a beat on bureaucracy! And I had gone on the official
records as someone more distinguished and indispensable to mankind
than "just another Mom."

Motherhood! . What a glorious career! Especially when there's a title
on the door.

Does this make grandmothers "Senior Research associates in the field
of Child Development and Human Relations" and great grandmothers
Executive Senior Research Associates"? I think so!!! I also think it
makes Aunts "Associate Research Assistants.

Please send this to another Mom, Grandmother, Aunt, and other friends
you know.

I saw those window clings this weekend, Kat, and for the life of me can't remember where. I never even thought of taking them on the cruise, but that's a great idea. I am not going to decorate too much this time. I am thinking packing it all up on Christmas/Castaway Cay Day is just too depressing. Your kids are on break already!!! They are in school 'till Friday around here, not even a 1/2 day on Friday.

Yeah Sue, that $$$$$$$$$$$$$ thing sure does get in the way of cruisin when we want, doesn't it?

The party was fun and yes I behaved myself for my girlfriends sake. You can have the professional world. It is miles away from mine.

Hi guys! Back from my long weekend in Vegas and decided I just had to catch that cold/flu that's going around. Would someone be so kind as to get the elephant off my chest???? It hurts to even breathe.


I have those gel clings to take on the cruise THAT LEAVES THIS SATURDAY. Why am I suddenly not ready????
Hallmark has them, and Michaels & JoAnn had them....the window clings.

I didn't see what Jen said, and while it's true that as a Mom and a daughter, I totally understand Respect....I'd like to remind everyone that before we can judge, we need to walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Perhaps there is more to the story of Jen's life at home than most of us know.
And while I can't begin to speak for anyone else, I know that it has helped me many times to be able to "vent" to friends, so that I didn't make a mistake and hurt my parents.

My oldest DD went with me, and we had a ball! We went to the "other" Chip & Dale's show. LOL
And we went to see Rita Rudner, she was funny.
Yes, I left them a small donation....not too bad. I was there for a jewelry shopping spree offer from the MGM Grand, so I got four pieces of pretty nice jewelry. I figure I'm about even with them!

I have an appointment with the doc this afternoon. I normally would let it run its course, but can't really afford to, since we leave Friday.
Packing shouldn't be too bad. The snorkel bag is ready, the toiletries are ready, my clothes are laid out and ready. The kids can do their own, I made very specific lists for them. And Jay's packing is easy for me. Toss in some Dockers and a couple of Hawaiian shirts, and he's set!

The original post was deleted. Which is good. I thought we should just drop it. But the kid was calling her mother curse words. I can't let that pass without comment. Even though I have not walked in her shoes, I will judge that she has some problems that she needs help with. Maybe there is more to her story at home than we know. And yes, it does help to vent to friends. Still, I would give her the same advice I gave her. Don't post on an open forum those type of remarks. Send your friends a PM or email.
She sounds like a VERY fortunate young lady to me. Taking Disney cruises, riding horses, etc. But like most kids, she does not realize how good she has it.
Maybe since I am a newbie to this thread, I should have kept my mouth shut. But I just could not let her comments go.

Who you calling on old coot? I may be old enough to be her mother but that doesn't make me old or a coot! Heck, my only kid is half her age and that makes me feel old enough.

Is it the weekend yet? I am ready for the weekend already. I am taking tomorrow off but have to come back for Thursday and Friday. That is the one thing I miss about being a kid....the long holiday breaks, spring break, summers off. Don't get those anymore :( . Oh well, DD says it isn't fair because mommy and daddy get to stay up late and her school night bedtime is 8:30 so I guess there are perks. :)

OK, so, got the cooking done for the ski trip.

Um, let's see...All in the freezer, ready to go.....Sausage Pasta Casserole w/ meatballs on the side, Shepard's Pie, Meatloaf, Ribs & Cornbread, Chicken Wings, Chicken Soup...damn, sounds like one of our NE Patroit's tailgate parties. I'm Italian. The biggest fear (and crime) is not having enough food, inherited that from my Grammy!

Ahhh, nothing like skiing comfort food. Don't think any strangers will be taking pitcures of me going down the slopes in MY thong :rotfl: :rotfl: .

Now to get going on the Prime Rib Christmas Eve Dinner and the Ham for Christmas Dinner (thank goodness dinner is at SIL's and ham is all I am responsible for.)

Oh, Sue, what were we thinking not booking an '05 Christmas Cruise. Calgon, take me away.

Not to watch for people, but to watch the horse. To make sure she doesn't kick the walls or anything. But it gets the whole stall and the door and is dark-proof. now i am sad just thinking about it...

I know what ya mean guys. 'Tis the season to say, "What the heck is wrong with some people."

Lucky you, Denise. I have to work til Friday and a full day at that, but then off until the following Monday. Going out for Christmas Dinner. Now, why didn't I think of that?

Well, got the heebie jeebies from the kids. Found out one of my daycare kids was puking all night Sunday and Mom didn't think it important to mention it. The siblings & Mom had it yesterday (at least she kept them home this time) and, without the gory details, guess who was next :rolleyes1 . The good thing is, the thought of food has absolutely no appeal to me whatsoever. Maybe I'll drop a few before the, "big comfort food gorge fest".

Have to give that Fantasy Island some thought. Can't remember most that were on my list las time. The must be old news now.

Oh Bubbles...bummer. And BTW that comfort food fest sounded darn good.

Much better on that list there Jen. You know I had the list on my computer at that job I had over the summer. Forgot to take it home with me.
So today DD6 is going to a friends house and DD3, daddy and I are headed out to do some shopping.YES I'm not done. After I take Ki to the doctor that is. Gotta go spend my gift cert from my bosses. :teeth:

Hey Gary hows the coffee this morning? I sure need some. I have a Gary puppet in my brain now whenever I want a cupof coffee I think of You Gary.

Hows it going Kat? Have you seen Narnia yet? I have yet to see Harry Potter. Is yorkshire pudding on the menu this Christmas? I'm there with you on that age thing. I still feel like a 29 year old but with padding to protect my rock hard abs.

not bad. A year ago i would have killed for that gift. He's hott. lol. Now i prefer Hayden Christensen. Him as Anakin in that wavy hair, ooooooo, just makes me shiver. But I can never wait for anybody to get me anything. I just jumped on the cast signed script. Signed by 15 cast members (including George Lucas, Hayden, Ewan McGreggor, Natalie). So i have that and a signed poster. Have a huge banner from Pirates. Its the big ones from the movie theatres (5 feet wide by 2 feet tall). I am such a movie buff. And my latest addition to my movie props is an authentic Pirates Medallion. Its a real one from off the set. That cost me a pretty penny.

KatHuss
12-26-2005, 07:18 PM
I have one of the replica medallions I got on ebay this summer. I had it for the Pirates in the Caribbean party when we cruised in June. I will, of course, be bringing it next December.

DCLgodess
12-26-2005, 07:21 PM
is yours from Master Replicas or is it really from the set? MR has one that is the exact same size and everything, cept for the MR logo on the back. Mine is from the set. One of the 256 pieces actually made (there were never 882 identical pieces, just 256. The rest was cardboard.).

KatHuss
12-27-2005, 08:51 AM
I don't believe it is from the set. It has some logo on the back but I cannot make it out. I didn't pay enough for it to be a real one. They sell them all over ebay, though.

DCLgodess
12-27-2005, 07:07 PM
ah it's probably a MR one then. Mine has the Disney copyright logo, but no MR logo. They both look the same (my boyfriend has the MR one) when you compare them side by side.

Well garry, Boo's off for some serious training. they are going to make her into a good reining and rodeo horse. I get to go down every other week to check on her progress. Should be exciting. It took us 2 hours and 4 strong guys to get her in my 2-horse. Had to remove the center panel and the back bar to make it a "stock" trailer. It was fun. She came out alright, jus really sweaty.

Well, i am off to do fun and exciting things (NOT). bye all.

Kinda quiet here is right!

Jen, those doubloons from Pirates of the Caribbean sound pretty cool! My DD Hayley is a big fan of the movie, also. I may look around for one of the replica ones for her. She saw the previews the other day for the sequel. Looks like it is coming out this summer. You would think that being a pirate fan, she would dress up with her little sister and I on Pirate Night, but she would have none of it! She is pretty shy, though, so I guess I should expect it. She and her sister are opposites.

This is Erin and I. We had a great time.

do an ebay search for Pirate Medallion or go to www.masterreplicas.com and get one off their site. Don't think there are any set pieces still floating around. Got mine pretty early. I also have a miniature from the premiere at Disneyland. fun stuff.

OMG! I know none of you probably know what a fanlisting is but i will try to explain. A fanlisting is an online listing for all the fans of a certain subject. for example, I have a fanlisting for Ben Gates from National Treasure. But I just got approved for the fanlisting for DCL!! I have been waiting for it to be open for application and i can't believe i got it. I will let you all know when it's done so you all can join. I am going to start right now. lol.

Willie, I found mine on ebay. If you type in Pirates coin necklace you will find some listed (those are the replicas), or you can leave off the necklace part and just get the coins. I love mine and will have it with me next year for Pirate Night for sure.

We don't generally dress up for Pirate night as we aren't really costume types and we don't want to pack that much extra in our luggage. It is bad enough with snorkeling stuff for dh, clothes for everyone (including formal and semi-formal), etc. We had two large suitecases for the 7 day last year. I am going to try to keep it to no more than that for the 10 day and just figure on doing laundry a couple of times so anything extra is to be avoided. I am even trying to get DH to agree to renting a tux for the two formal nights this time around. Still not sure if it is worth the cost, though.

Does anyone else rent or bring a tux for the formal nights or would he be the only one in our crew doing that????

I am looking forward to the next Pirates movie this summer! The preview looked pretty good. I am a big Johnny Depp fan anyway so it is all good.

Dee, that's a beautiful pic! DH won't do the formal pics. With the long lines I can't really blame him. I don't own a gown and am not likely too though I would like to find a really nice "cocktail" type dress if he does agree to rent a tux. Too bad DCL doesn't rent women's formal wear like some of the other cruise lines do! I HATE to shop for dresses. Ugh. Oh well, I still have almost a year so maybe I will find something between now and then.

on formal night i will probably wear my Padme dress. i am getting the Padme Lake Dress (Ep II. AKA P-11) custom made including the neck and arm bands. I can't wait for it to come (which won't be until april). ACK! I need to start tanning! Can't be a pale padme. I used to love Johnny. Still do. Met him once in NYC @ a premiere. But now i am a Hayden fan. Star wars is my life. I can't imagine a day without thinking about it.

Kat, are you sure your not from Texas? Sounds like what we have going on around here!

Where I live was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Rita.(Gulf Coast) So we have a LOT of trees down on my property that are mostly in a huge burn pile. So we will have a bonfire for New Years. The kiddos will be shooting fireworks, sipping cocoa, and roasting marshmellows. The grown ups will be shooting tequila and sipping whiskey! We do a bonfire every year, but this year will be quite a bit larger pile of wood.

Dee- Thanks for posting the pic!

No, Willie, not me. Not including layovers at airports I have been to Texas once (conference in San Antonio back in the mid 80's) and driven across the panhandle once between St. Louis and LA. Are you kidding, I live in red-neck land Indiana like your buddy Lampy!

Did you have any major damage from Rita? My SIL has cousins that live in one of the suburbs south of New Orleans and they had minor damage from Katrina but have decided to stay there. We had a lot of trees down from our ice storm last January but we have pretty much burned all of ours already (the fireplace helps with the heating bills!!!). DH has to get more soon I think.

Before we moved we lived in a neighborhood where there were usually gunshots heard around midnight on New Years. Now we live in a neighborhood where fireworks are more likely than gunshots.

We have to get a new roof. Waiting for the contractor to get to our name on his list! Right now I have a blue roof.(tarps) You see blue roofs here everywhere coveringthe damage. When DD10 Erin did her gingerbread house, she made the roof blue on it. :rolleyes: But we were really lucky that no trees landed directly on our home. Some huge pecan trees fell right next to us, but just barely missed. We were without electricity for 22 days. I had a generator and small window unit AC, but those cold showers will be in my memory for a while.
The whole hurricane experience was pretty rough. I am an independent insurance agent, so I was busy with work along with my own damage problems. Luckily, the insurance companies I sell for did a fantastic job of paying claims very quickly and I did not get a single complaint from a customer. They brought in lots of extra claims adjusters. Some of the other insurance companies have treated their policy holders pretty badly in regards to the hurricane.

I live on 8 acres of land that is outside the city, so we hear gunshots around the house regularly.(hunters, etc) But it is nice at New Years because all of my friends bring their kids over to ride 4 wheelers and do fireworks.

Willie, I don't know the name of the town they are in. I know it is south of the river but that's all I can tell you. DH and I were in NO last January and I am glad we got to go before so much was damaged.

We had a branch come through our roof during our ice storm last year. Poor DD had just walked into her room with her cousin and a friend when they heard a loud noise. A branch from a tree next door had fallen straight down through the roof and attic and into her room! It scared the daylights out of all three of the girls and it was all they could talk about for days. We had no power for a couple of days (thank god for generators) but SIL across the street went for a while more before she got power back. A branch had come down on the line from the street to her house and it loosened the ground line so when power came back on her entire house got 220 to everything! The TV started to smoke when she turned it on and a number of things were ruined as a result. She had to have the electricians fix the place where the line attached to the house then wait for the power co to come out and hook it back up for her. I know it is nothing compared to what you and others in your area went through but it was enough of that kind of excitement to last all of us for quite some time!

DCLgodess
12-29-2005, 01:41 PM
woo hoo! lots of excitement. Let's see, we had our boat that was in storage end up in our pool (thanks Floyd). Had our electrical system get gremlins (thanks lightning). Had a trailer fall over (a really big one) (thanks Floyd). Oh yeah, had a tornado come through in the middle of a rodeo with about 150 horses on the lot (thanks god for saving them all).

O.K. Willie.....I have to "post" the TCD "epic" that shows what "good friends" we really are.....hope I don't scare anyone off! :rotfl2:

A few days ago, some hammer head started a thread called the best trip report thread ever. Hardly. We all know this is it.

Well, here goes the longest post for this thread-make sure that you read this all. No skimming.

OK Turkey Fans, as promised, here we go.

As you know, there are a few unsolved mysteries still floating around out there about our cruise. After much thought and careful analysis, I have been able to review all of the available evidence, and I believe that I have been able to patch together the facts that will answer those mysteries.

So, as all good detectives do, I will begin with a review of the undisputed facts. The following points are things that we know are absolutely true:

1. Dubbya and Lampy have taken multiple Disney Cruises together. They have also both booked the same cruise for next December.

2. Before the 11/19 sailing, Lampy and Dubbya met for a private rendezvous in Downtown Disney.

3. Lampy sometimes likes to dress like a lady (not that there is anything wrong with that-I am just stating the facts). Here is an example:

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y134/lampskies/potluck05001.jpg


4. Dubbya, on the other hand, sometimes likes to dress like a trans-gendered rock star from the 80's ( I am also not saying that there is anything wrong with this-just making an objective observation). Here is an example of that:

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid195/p07381a6b79fcf997948ca128d8983d2c/f141bb17.jpg

5. Instead of spending quality time with their DW’s on this cruise, Lampy and Dubbya spent a lot of time with each other. This even happened on the night of their REAS romantic turndown service.

6. Mrs. Lampy and Mrs. Dubbya were seen in the company of a very good looking man on several occasions on the cruise, here are some examples:

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a145/arodnite/willie.jpg

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a145/arodnite/lampwillie.jpg

7. Before the Ron Bon Jovis performed on 80's night, Dubbya, Lampy, and a bunch of other men (no women) danced with each other to 80's classics from performers such as Boy George and Michael Jackson (again, nothing wrong with this, but it was a disturbing sight):

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid195/p6a65668635819055e7c0351302024ff8/f141bb0e.jpg

8. On one evening of the cruise, Lampy and Dubbya appeared at AP after everyone had just finished dinner with a bucket of beer. They claimed to have just finished dining at Palo. Their DW’s were no where to be seen. Lampy kept referring to Dubbya by the pet name “beer boy.”

9. Lampy portrayed the sailor in the 70's night performance of the Village People.

10. Both Lampy and Dubbya are surprisingly good dancers.

11. Dubbya and Lampy seemed to always be in the Quiet Cove hot tub together. Granted, there would occasionally be other people there too, but they seemed to be there together an awful lot.

12. One night, Dubbya and Lampy brought an inflatable male doll to dinner and had themselves photographed with it (now, there is something wrong with that!)

13. There allegedly was a wedding on Castaway Cay on Friday 11/25, but no one saw a bride or groom except for Dubbya and Lampy.

14. This decoration from the “wedding” depicts two grooms!

http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d46/Nevarre1/WeddingCake.jpg

Please take careful note of the fact that the shorter vegetable is wearing what appears to be a pink tu-tu, and a sailor hat (hmmm), and the taller vegetable is wearing a vest with no shirt (hmmmm again).


So what do we make of all this. Well, before you jump to any conclusions, let me share a few pieces of information that you may not be aware of :

1. We all know that Dubbya has posted his “Costa Maya Beach” photo of the lady in the thong bathing suit about 50 times (at least). But it wasn’t until I received this photo from Doogie that the truth about this photo was revealed:

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a145/arodnite/wL.jpg

Now, I know that some of you skeptics might be saying that this is a doctored photograph, and it does look a little weird, but Doogie says it was just some kind of a pixel problem with his camera. The photo is real.

What you do not know about this photo is that it wasn’t taken on Costa Maya at all. It was really taken on the private beach at Castaway Cay. You see, I accidently happened upon this scene when I inadvertently went down this road when I got lost of the bike path:

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a145/arodnite/cc6.jpg

When I got to the private beach, there was a sign there that said “Private-Commitment Ceremony Reception.” Commitment Ceremony? What is that? And, why were Dubbya and Lampy there?

2.. Late one night, on the ship, I was getting on the elevator, and Dubbya and Lampy came off of the elevator at the same time. They were wearing robes and had towels wrapped around their heads like women. They mentioned that they had just painted each other’s toe nails after having taken a long soak in the hot tub.

3. Dubbya and Lampy booked one of the new spa rooms for an “alone time” treatment. I don’t know much more about that, and I promised not to tell who told me.

So, Folks, there you have it. I think that you can draw your own conclusions from here. I don’t want to start any rumors or anything. I just wanted to clear the air by stating the facts.

I don't know, Willie, I think you got yourself into it!


There is a logical explanation to every one of Andrews' charges.
Just because I missed "Romantic Turndown" , well actually I missed it two sailings in a row....But it was an accident! It was the cabin stewards fault!

On my first Disney cruise in 2004 I signed up DW and I for the "Romantic Escape at Sea" package that included romantic turndown. After our Palo dinner, DW went to the cabin to change and I went to Rockin Bar D. She found the romantic turndown, climbed into bed and went to sleep. I just figured she decided not to come to RBD. Well, everyone gave me heck about it on the DIS last year, so this year I marked my calendar for the date, so as not to miss it. Yep, right there on Tuesday night, after Palo dinner, I would be heading for "Romantic Turndown City!"
Well, the cabin attendant decided he would set it up on MONDAY night.
Here is a pic kelli took for me-

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid195/p0f463f3cb37c23b2b0890f1f4cf2aaef/f146c9e3.jpg

yep, I missed it. I was busy with the band down in RBD..........

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid195/p5e1721d63339e20b210926971334d762/f141bb33.jpg

Then Andrew found out that I had run into a guy that went to high school with my DW Kelli. " HMMMMMM....... and one of Kelli's old HS boyfriends just happens to be onboard? So maybe the turndown didn't go to waste after all!"
And it all went downhill from there!

But you gotta admit, Ron looks pretty cute in that TUTU! Just needs a few electric razors.

Sue, yes it has been busy here. I think Lampy and Willie are trying to scare us away from the cruise so they will have the ship to themselves! Good luck, we have kids so we don't scare that easily!

Yes, a walk on the beach on Christmas day does sound wonderful! DH says he probably won't go to CC but I bet DD will want to play on the beach and swim so we will go down for a while but not all day.

Hey Willie, how close are you to the fires? After the hurricanes this fall that would be all you'd need. Hope they aren't too close!

Our Hallmark store has their Christmas ornaments at 50% off right now. They had some cute Mickey ones left but I just don't have the $$ to buy them right now (trying to save extra $ for the cruise. I have been putting my pocket change in a bank and in just over a month I already have about $15 so if I keep up that will be some nice spending money in a year.). Maybe if they still have them in a few weeks they will reduce the price more. They had a great one from Fantasia and a patriotic Mickey. They had some Pooh and Tigger ones too but I am not really into Pooh. Oh well.

Can you imagine the excitement of getting a last minute upgrade? An upgrade to the Jon Paul "Bubba" Disney Suite?

On Friday, before our Thanksgiving cruise, this was the message that I left on fellow Dis'er TCD's answering machine-


"HELLO! This is Guillermo from the Disney Cruise Lines. This message is for the Rodnite Family sailing with us tomorrow on the Disney Magic. I am calling to give you the great news that you have been upgraded to a suite for this sailing!
Yes, that is correct. Your family will be sailing in the Jon Paul "Bubba" Disney Suite. Named after a lesser known cousin of Walt Disney, from Texas.

The only requirement for this upgrade is that you offer to buy beer for any of your friends onboard that are from TEXAS, for the duration of the cruise.
At check in, please tell customer service that you have been selected for this upgrade. thank you for sailing Disney Cruise Lines."

Thinking back, maybe this was what got him started making up stuff about me.

Happy New Year, Yall!

Hello everyone, thought I should jump on in and come out of lurking. We too are booked on the holiday cruise next year.

Our info,
We are currently booked in 2 cat 5's (waiting for the upgrade fairy to send a few cat 3's our way... :rotfl:)
There are 6 of us traveling, dh, dh's mom, dd (16 when we travel :earseek: ) ds 12 and dd 7 and me!
This is our 2nd disney cruise with our first being the repositioning cruise from DL to WDW this Aug-Sept.

Welcome Pauline!!! Some of our friends were on the repo cruise as well. Richard and Alison. They'll be on this cruise as well although I can't get her to post.

Ok Willie and Lampy you guys are cute. Do you dress like that often?

New Years...quite one this year. The girls are up too early for me to get liquored up. We will get the girls in bed and take a jacuzzi. (God am I getting old?) I'm still hurting from my birthday celebration. Paul keeps letting me know things I did. Oh my.At least I didn't take my top off and dance on stage. :goodvibes

Just adding my name to those cruising on the holiday cruise in 2006. Me (37), SWMBO (age withheld under fear for life), DS (12), DS (9) and DD (3). Haven't posted on DIS for a few years (since last cruise in 2002), but looking forward to sharing tips and meeting people in advance.

yargrnhoj, what is your name? And what is a SWMBO?? I have never seen that one before!

Wow, looks like we are suddenly adding folks and still almost a year out! That will be a lot of folks to tie together for dining when it comes time. Willie, I think we will definitely want to link to your res since we are doing late dining as well and would love to sit with the rest of the folks from our board, no matter how strange. I'd rather hang out with the strange folk anyway, more fun than the "normal" ones!

Ugh, I cannot sleep so here I am at almost 3:00am EST on the DIS boards. I need to get a life, and some sleep! :confused3

I'm going away for a while...found out who stole my moms sterling, and my world is going to get a little non-fun for a while. Seems my brother needed some money. Now I have to be the person who puts him where he belongs and I have to see about my parents and their well being. My sister wants to put them in a home. I just can't stand that.

So you guys take care. See you on the other side.

Hi everyone! Welcome to the newest cruisers! My neighbors will also be on this cruise. They did the last 10 day with us also. I'm sure they will be great friends with Willy and Lampy. They really got to know the bartenders well on the last cruise. We kept teasing them that their bar tab would be more expensive than the cruise. I'm sooo excited, I finally snagged a XBOX 360 for my boys today at Target. They were supposed to get it for Christmas. The only things they had under the tree were a game and controller. It bothered me more than them though, they were thrilled to know that they would be getting one eventually.

Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone!

Hi Everyone!

My New Year's resolution is to admit that we are actually planning to take this cruise and stop pretending it is "tentative", and start posting on this thread. A lot of you have been here for a year already, so just one more to go! We are Carol (me), Mike (DH), and Bryan (DS14) and this will be our first cruise. (The 20-something kids will be on their own for Christmas this time - probably going to DL with their sweeties since we are abandoning them.) Looking forward to getting together with some DISers, as we have never done that in all our trips to the parks.

Happy New Year!

Hello! I thought that I would join in on the fun! My family will also be on the 10 day! Myself, DH, and 3 DD ages 17, 13 and 9. Our oldest will be a senior next year and then she is off to play college basketball 5 states away from home, so we really want to make this special. We did a Disney Cruise in 2003 and loved it! I CONFESS, I am a disneyaholic! The girls are so excited about the Cruise that they don't even mind that just my DH and I are sneaking away in March for a quick fix to Disney World!! YEAH!!! I'm not sure that I could make it till December without a fix!!!

Looking forward to meeting everyone!!

Karylrocks, I was a little nervous about meeting up with DISers the first time, (DH still calls it the "cult" and he is not willing to learn the secret handshake :sad2: ) But I met some great friends on our cruise and now do DIS Meets in WDW and locally whenever I can.

"SWMBO"... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: , yargrnhoj, does that really work in your house. You must tell me your secret.

Coach Minnie-Glad to hear someone else has a DD that plays HS basketball. How are you guys working out the 10 crusie during the season? DD Hayley will most likely have a game the night before we sail, hence we are flying to MCO the day of the cruise. What position does your DD play? What college is she going to?

We are fortunate in Michigan because our High School Girls Basketball Season runs from August through November, with State Finals being held the first weekend in December. They are looking to switch it so that it is the same as boys, December through March, but as of now we are still in the fall. My daughter plays a 1 or 2, i.e. either a point guard or a shooting guard. She is being recruited by a couple colleges in Michigan, but she is more interested in a college that is recruiting her out of South Carolina. Only 8 miles from Murtle Beach. She isn't to fond of the winter!! She will be thrilled to know that another gym rat will be on the cruise! She likes to hang out on the court!! What position does your daughter play? How old is she? Does she have any interest in playing college ball?

DD Hayley will be 16 in September. She is a freshman this year on Junior Varsity. Next year she should be Varsity and the season runs from November til end of January. She should miss some practices, but no games while on the cruise. Maybe she and your DD can get some time on the court. Hayley plays post. (She is 5'10" and growing.) I don't know if she is interested in playing college ball or not. Her first love is soccer, but she is a little better at basketball, in my opinion.

i play no sports. It's sad. Unless you consider riding a sport. But you can go big with riding. I've made worlds 5 years in a row. My last trip was 3 years ago (after that both horses died). Placed in the top 10 in all my events the last 3 years. But i am a computer geek. Yes i'll admitt it. I would rather spend my day on the computer then outside doing anything else (except riding). So what do you think of my logo?

What color shirt are you thinking about, Jen? Not DIS Green I hope! I CANNOT wear that color. I doubt DH will wear one, he isn't into the matching clothing thing. Too bad for him.

No work for me today. Got the tree down last night and put it in the attic today, ran errands, finished the laundry. Now I am listening to the thunder outside. Thunder, in Indiana, in December. That is just wrong. What do you think, Ron? Are you getting this weird weather on the other side of the state today?

Jen, like the design. I'll definately get one this time. I didn't last time but wished that I did.

Very dark and gloomy day in Ohio. Raining on and off also. I'm ready for warmer weather. Unfortunately, that won't be here for a while. We had about 8 inches of snow last year at the end of April (and we had our pool open--took pictures of that).

Anyone know anything about elliptical machines? I'm determined to get one and get in some kind of shape by summer (sure, like that's possible!)

Well, took all day to take everything down. I don't think I'll even get a tree next year. It's too much work. I threw a bunch of stuff out while I was putting it all up this year and still have 16 bins :earseek: of decorations to put away.

heard from the trainer about 5 minutes ago. He says Boo's acting horrible. He can barely ride her around without her acting up. He's going to giver her another week to straighten up and then let me know if he thinks she's worth spending more money on. If he says she's hopeless, then it's time for Boo to be a mom. I will most likely get one of heir horses then. I'll still keep Boo, I'll just breed her.

ICEMANPAD
01-02-2006, 07:07 PM
Jen-Please...not a pastel color for the shirts!! Neither Chuck or Mason will wear a pastel shirt. Actually, the Dis Green made quite a statement over Thanksgiving!! If not green, then I would suggest a bright color so that we can spot each other--bright yellow or bright blue is fine.

KatHuss

White would be good. No yellow, another color that looks horrible on many people, me included. I personally love bright blue but that might not show all the detail. How about bright red? That would be Christmas-y as well as bright enough to spot.


As we were putting stuff in the attic this afternoon I found myself debating not having a big tree next year, just a little one that we usually put in the front window. Don't know how that would go over with the DD, though.


It was close to 60 here today, Ron. And gray all day for the past two days. I think we are going to have another Indiana monsoon winter rather than a snowy one unless things change drastically. My first winter here (1989/1990) was like that. I moved in just before New Years in the pouring rain. Ugh.

I'm just in a depressed state right now. It's like hearing that one of your kids died. Boo is like my baby, and she may be nothing better than breeding stock. I just feel that my crummy mood shouldn't be rubbed off here, so I will post when I know what's happening with her and such. TTFN.

First, I have to admit that lime green is one of my favorite colors. (But I will buy shirts in whatever color we go with.) I probably have 10 lime green T and polo shirts already!
The bright DIS lime green on so many people was really cool, though. You could spot DIS people very easily. It made it easier to talk to someone if they had the same shirt on as you!
Everyone was asking what the "DIS Board" was. When you would tell them, they would get this look and go "Man, I could have used that site while planning my cruise!"

There are T shirts that the DIS Boards sells that are lime green at the DISshop. Go to the site below to see them.

Here is an idea- With it being a 10 day cruise, more than one T- shirt might be an idea. I imagine we will have several DIS meets. Can't wear the same shirt to everything.
But if we go with just one, bright red would be a good solution. We still have lots of time to decide. Some people won't wear shirts that match everyone else, no matter what color they are. You may have already guessed that looking cool is not high on my list. So I will wear just about anything.
