Hey Jennifer!


Me-31,DH 47,DS 17,DS 10(turning 11on the ship) and DS 8.

You're 31 and your oldest DS is 17? Are you guys originally from the deep South?


Hi NYGiantsRule! This will also be our second Disney cruise. Our = me (older than I act), DS10 (when we sail) and DM65++. Looking forward to meeting you onboard the Magic.

Hi all! We're still here (mostly lurking around the board) and counting the days till we sail.

It's me (old and very fluffy), DH (old, kind of fluffy, but adorable), my DD(21, handicapped but incredibly adorable, of course;) ), and my sister( not as old, not fluffy, but adorable and very funny).

Who will be at the PC Radisson on the 15th? We will be arriving sometime in the afternoon. We are driving from Charlotte, NC after we pick up my sister.

It would be nice to have a meet and greet at the hotel on Friday. Anybody up for it?

Hey BD.......LOL....No we are not from the deep south!!!! Actually he is my stepson. I guess I should write DSS17.;)

So no everyone......I was not having children at 14. LOL

Good morning, Jennifer. No explanation was necessary - lol. I was only joking and besides, you should've let all of us continue to ponder the age differences.

Good morning, Linda.

It would be nice to have a meet and greet at the hotel on Friday. Anybody up for it?

Definitely. We will be arriving mid-afternoon on the 15th. Heaven knows the exact time as I made our airline reservations approximately 6 months ago and haven't checked back since. The schedule has probably changed several times...

I think we need to start a list of who is going to be at the Radisson. We're getting in around 9:40 Friday but DH wants to drive around Cocoa Beach and check out the condos there. (I would love to buy one so close to the port).

Hi starwood.


DH wants to drive around Cocoa Beach and check out the condos there. (I would love to buy one so close to the port).

If you and DH are seriously looking in the area, why not contact Shirley at The Perfect Gift privately? Her business is in the area and, I would assume, her residence is too. She might be able to offer valuable insight into where (or where not) to look.

Just a thought...

We WERE on this cruise (our fourth DCL cruise - but first Western). Booked it last April (2002) and had to cancel yesterday (I actually cried when I got off the phone). We had an unbelievable price, but had a serious work conflict.

On the bright side, with the new 7 for 4 night package, I was able to book a week at the Poly concierge for $1000 less than the cruise was in the same time frame on the dates we could do.

I think I'm going to have to stay away from this board for awhile, or I'm going to get SO depressed! :(

Y'all have a GREAT time! :teeth:

Buckaroo's Dad
06-04-2003, 09:42 PM
Hi happydays. Sorry to learn you had to cancel this cruise, but a week at WDW while lodging at the Polynesian is a terrific vacation in and of itself. My son and I stayed there a few years back. And what does "Buckaroo" remember most vividly? The room? No. The restaurants? No. The ease of catching a "private" monorail? Well, a bit. But the number 1 memory? The tiny boxes containing lady bugs that the kids were given to release in the various gardens to help control insects...

Hannosmom
06-04-2003, 10:39 PM
Happydays, I completely understand how you feel about the canceled cruise. I had to cancel our 11/02 cruise and I DID cry. But you'll have fun at the Poly, and be ready to cruise another day.

BD, lol, so like a child. Only remember the really cool parts.

Hi Steff! Hope we can meet on the ship. I was hoping we all could meet on the "secret" deck 7. Maybe have some refreshments and share some stories. I'm sure BD can entertain us with a few. :)

Maybe all us Radisson folks could meet up after dinner?

Good morning all,
Buckeroo am I correct in assuming you will be going western in August? If so, you better stop by the shop or I will be an unhappy camper - also Starwood - short story - Cape Canaveral was considered the armpits of Brevard County at one time - I knew I swore "I would never live in CC" - I brought a condo here simply due to the fact that real estate was so low - but boy have things changed here - Cape Canaveral is growing like a weed - New Condo's are being built it seems like every month here - If you want to live on the water, then its going to cost - my suggestion - come down, stop by the shop and I will give you some good leads of where to start - meanwhile, I would be more than happy to send you the classifieds from the newspaper here -
Also to those that do not know - I was born and raised in Key West and due to the fact I know my hometown - I offer free stuff from there as to what to do, where to go, where to stay away from etc all for the cost of a SASE manilla envelope - no hidden strings -
Anyhow hope all have a great week of what is left of it.
Hugsssssss from me to you from a very wet Florida
Always
Shirley

starwood
06-05-2003, 05:17 AM
Shirley,

Though I would LOVE to live in Florida - my mother lives here and doesn't drive so guess who the chauffeur is?

We would probably be looking for a condo to rent and one that we could use once or twice a year. (when we cruise;) . I'll ask DH if he would like to look over the classified and let you know.

Thanks.

Buckaroo's Dad
06-05-2003, 05:17 AM
Good morning Shirley.


you better stop by the shop or I will be an unhappy camper

We will most certainly stop by the shop to say hello. "Buckaroo" even has his own florist knife, although it'll have to remain in NY with all the revamped airline security regulations AND non-revamped Daddy-says rules...


I brought a condo here simply

Quite a "simple" feat from Key West...

My family and I will also be on this cruise - Me (37), Hubby (35) and daughter (11). We have never cruised before, let alone Disney cruised, and we're very excited. I think these boards are terrific - so much advice and information I never would have thought to ask for. It would be great to meet up with other cruisers, please could anyone tell me how forum users do this.
Thanks Gaynor.

Hi Gaynor.


It would be great to meet up with other cruisers, please could anyone tell me how forum users do this.

Not quite sure I understand the question. Disers can agree to meet somewhere onboard ship or sometime before if convenient. Are you arriving at the port area the day before the cruise? It seems as though a good number of August 16th-ers are staying at The Radisson in Port Canaveral the night before our cruise.

Looking forward to meeting you and everyone else...

disney3144
06-06-2003, 05:32 AM
We will be unable to meet up at the Radisson before the cruise because we are staying at DW for the week before. So I'll guess that we will have to meet up with everyone onboard. Don't worry though....I have my lime green mickey heads from Home Depot. ;)

Hi Buckaroo's Dad - thanks for replying. I think I meant Disers ( I'm new to these boards...) We will be staying at the Universal Royal Pacific Hotel before our cruise, so we won't be able to meet you all at The Radisson. My family would love to meet fellow cruisers on board - I'll keep watching this space for news of the August 16th-ers meet.
Looking forward to meeting you all.

Another August 16th family here.

Me 46 DH 45 and DS 16

This is our 4th cruise and I can't wait. It will probably be our last for awhile since the price between what I paid for a category 6 this year and next year is a big difference.

Unfortunately we fly in that morning so no time to meet at the Raddison.

Hello All!!

So glad to see this thread is finally posted - no, I didn't have the guts to just start it my own (I can already hear BD's reply).

This will be our second cruise as well. Me (35) and DBF (as in Best Friend - 30). We'll be staying at the Dolpin starting Aug. 13 for 3 days at the World prior to sailing. Can't wait.

Now about those excursions....so many to choose from my mind is spinning trying to decide.

Hannosmom
06-10-2003, 06:35 PM
Hi lynr! It's nice to see another WISHer here! I won't tell, if you won't! :cool: :)

Hi to you too, Marcotta! I have most of my excursions planned, but Cozumel is starting to drive me crazy. I want to do everything!

BD = sharp wit, good heart!

BTW, BD, Sarah is away doing a vocational evaluation, and she found a shuffleboard on campus. She'll be practicing a lot over the next two weeks!

Marcotta
06-11-2003, 03:14 PM
Hi Hannosmom -

what are you going to do in Key West?

I know what you mean by wanting to do everything - I think that's why I can't narrow anything down. Did book Capt. Marvin's since this board so highly recommended it but that is about as far as I get decide on.

Buckaroo's Dad
06-11-2003, 04:09 PM
Hi Linda.


Sarah is away doing a vocational evaluation, and she found a shuffleboard on campus. She'll be practicing a lot over the next two weeks!

Yikes! I had better get "Buckaroo" back to those courts at Jones Beach. The dear lad had been busy practicing for his Junior Black Belt exam. A little over two hours of various techniques and falls with one one-minute break - and he passed! I am proud and he is happy. Next week is a special ceremony at one of the large catering halls here on The Island. Now he has a minimum of 3 years to prepare for his adult Black Belt and one of the requirements is to do volunteer work. He'll be helping the Special Education students both with their karate AND their homework assignments from the school(s) they attend. It's a terrific program. Wow, look at all this. I'm not TOO proud of him - huh???

Still thinking over the shore excursions on Cozumel? (Re)consider joining us on Wild Tours ATV adventure. It's a lot of fun!

Hi Marcotta. You might like this as well!

Buckaroo's Dad:

Do you have any info on the ATV tour? I just got my excursion docs. yesterday but I don't see it listed. Is this one that you are doing on your own. If it is what I'm thinking, it sounds like a blast!!

Hannosmom
06-12-2003, 02:10 PM
Hey BD!! Please tell Buckaroo for me "THAT IS WAY COOL!!" Give him a big gold star and a treat. Also, after the shuffleboard tournament, Sarah and I would be glad to sign an "affadavit" that Buckaroo had spent volunteer time with a special ed student, since she is one. You should be tremendously proud of him! I''m even proud of him, and I haven't met him yet!:D

Marcotta, we are planning to take the trolley tour, and then visit The Hemingway house, the Audoubon house, and probably the Butterfly museum. Just doing the touristy thing. We've signed up for the 11:15 Captain Marvin's tour on GC, also.

Yes, BD, I'd like to read some about the ATV tours, too. Might be something we would love to do, I know DH would sure love it.

Buckaroo's Dad:

I have a question for you.
I THINK I read somewhere that you were going to do the Captain Marvin's excursion and then Horseback Riding with Penny's group afterwards. How will that work since we leave Grand Cayman at 5pm? I was thinking of doing the same thing but see that from Penny's website that they only have a 9:30 ride which conflicts with Capt. Marvin's?

(Don't worry, you're not being stalked!!!! :p Horseback riding is high on our list of to do's and if we do the Xcaret in Cozumel don't know when else we'd get to do the horseback riding except for in Grand Cayman during the afternoon).

Thanks!!

Glad to this thread back around. I 'lost' it before I got a chance to reply.

Anyway, I can't make the Radisson meet anymore either since I'll be at WDW beforehand too but I'd LOVE to meet all of you onboard. Someone who's been onboard and knows what they're doing want to coordinate a meet on the ship???

Also Tigger UK, my DD(10) would love to hook up with other girls in her age group, pm me if you'd like to arrange a 'young ladies' meet for them.:D

Hi Scott.

I guess when you look at it THAT way, it sure does seem like 10-pounds of aspirations in a 5-pound timeframe. However, I plan on contacting Nikki's Horseback Rides. Her times are (at least, were) quite diffferent from "Penny's."


Welcome back, vcasey.

Well, um, ok. Your stateroom. Saturday, 8/16. 3:30pm - 1:30am...

Good morning starwood.


now I just need to get DH to look over the Passporter and make sure he doesn't want to make any changes to the excursions.

As concerns shore excursions, what have you reserved for Grand Cayman? It seems as though a lot of the 8/16 Disers will be on the 11:15am Captain Marvins.


Hi vcasey.


I currently don't have a stateroom since I'm on a guarantee and haven't gotten mine assigned. Anyone else want to volunteer

If anyone has been on a DCL cruise before, any recommendations concerning where to meet aboard ship? I guess there is The Promenade Lounge, the deck 7 secret verandah or Rockin Bar D. I doubt the powers that be will allow us to hold a private function in The Walt Disney Theatre...

starwood
06-19-2003, 07:58 AM
Dh wanted to do the Island Tour because we've never been to GC before and he wanted to get a feel for the island. Then we will have plenty of time to relax and do some shopping later.

The last cruise we just met up at the Promenade Lounge although I'm thinking it might be nice to meet on the Deck 7 aft area,

mad4themouse
06-19-2003, 10:05 AM
I just made the final payment on Tuesday and now this trip seems a little more "real". This will be the second DCL cruise for me (43), DH (turning 49 -for the first time- on this cruise), DD13 and DS11.

We are flying in the night before and staying at the Airport Hyatt. We'll take the Disney bus from MCO to the port on the day of departure, so we won't be able to meet anyone at the Radisson.

Thanks to the suggestions of so many on this board, we've decided to do Captain Marvin's in Grand Cayman. We'll be on the half-day trip (10 am to 1 pm).

I'm still undecided about what to do in Cozumel. Any thoughts on Mr. Sancho's or Carlos & Charlie's? We're open to suggestions. A few friends who have been to Cozumel are discouraging us from taking the tour of the ruins. They said it was a long, hot, and bumpy ride. I'm also considering the DCL excursion Cozumel Beach Break. Any thoughts?

Starwood and disney3144, we should get our DS11s to hook up. I have a feeling that with his sister in the teen club, my DS will be at loose ends. It's too bad that they don't have something for the "tweeners". He really does not want to hang out in the "little kids'" club, since he will be a "mature" middle schooler this fall!

Looking forward to seeing a lot of lime green Home Depot Mickeys. I like the idea of meeting on Deck 7 aft. How about sometime in the morning before we get to Key West (not too early, though)? I believe we don't get into port until noon?

I think that would be great for them. DS already went through the Navigators and marked out what he wants to do and put it on my Palm Pilot.

Isn't that Middle School idea scary?LOL I just can't picture him there changing classes and having to know where everything is. He can't remember where anything is at home.

Hi Everyone -

sorry I could not reply yesterday (were the Boards down??), my server wouldn't connect.

Jennifer: Yes, the docs came by regular mail - I guess I recevied them last week sometime. I'm STILL trying to narrow down what the heck I'm going to choose. What's that saying...so little time?

We'll be on Capt. Marvin's 11:15am trip as well in G. Cayman.

Loaded up on the Lime Green Mickey's this past weekend at Home Depot - hehehehe...I felt so sneaky taking them, I kept wondering, does anyone KNOW why they are disappearing?

Our family is joining the August 16 party. It will be DW (28), DS (8) and myself (30). We're doing Captain Marvin's in Grand Cayman, but the 10 a.m. half day excursion (need that extra snorkel time) and the Wild Tours ATV Tour in Cozumel. We can't wait.

BTW, if we can get it, we may try for Palo's High Tea. Anyone know what time they offer it on the sea days?

Buckaroo's Dad
06-19-2003, 09:02 PM
Hi el_tigre.


and the Wild Tours ATV Tour in Cozumel.

Glad to know there will be some Disers with us on Wild Tours ATV adventure. I hope "Buckaroo" remembers the exhilaration of riding the Cozumel ATVs with Daddy when it's his turn in the annuls of "Buckaroo Family History" to take his kids for a similar shore excursion! (Hopefully, I'll be relaxing onboard ship in The Vista Spa OR hanging out in Carlos 'N Charlies... ).


Hey vcasey.


I'm all for Deck 7 aft but how about doing it Sat. night? I think that would be a great start to the cruise.

If we hold our Dis-meet on Saturday, what time would anyone/everyone prefer? The persondatory boat drill is at 4:30pm and sailaway begins at 5. First dinner seating is 6pm - or is it 6:15? Then the Welcome Aboard Variety Show - with second seating cruisers doing the reverse. So I guess that leaves either 5:30pm or 9:45pm. Anyone else???

Hey Max123, we're right around the corner from Brookhaven! We live in Bethel Twp. Too bad our kids aren't a couple of years older. When he reaches 13 or 14, I'm sure that my DS11 would jump at the chance to hook up with a girl his age. Right now he's more interested in football and computer games.

Hi all,
I lost this thread a while ago - it was like losing old friends! We hope to attend meet on board - little non-plussed about "lime green mickey heads from Home Depot ", disney3144. What are they and do I need one?
My DD (11) is overjoyed to know girls her age will be aboard - vcasey and max123, your idea for a girls' disney meet is great. I've e-mailed you both to say as much. Only weeks away now....
Kind regards Gaynor

Tigger UK.....The lime green mickey heads are paint chips that the hardware stores in the US have. They are in the shape of mickey's head. So, alot of DISers went to the store to pick some up so we could wear them on the ship with our name on them. If you want to email me with your address, I'd be happy to send you some. You do not have to have them though. It was just something neat that someone found.:D

BD you talk about replaning , we were supposed to arrive to MCO on saturday at 12:56pm ,but the more we tough about it the more we hated the idea of boarding the ship so late
so last week we called Air Canada and changed our flight to arrive on friday instead...
And we are taking a limo to the Radisson at the port:Pinkbounc
Now we will board early like everyone else and DW won't have to settle for a 1/4 body massage
:p

Now all we have to do is continue argueing about what clothes to bring : Formal , semi-formal , casual......and how many luggage!!
Anyone else having these fun discussion:confused:
And maybe some suggestions ?

We're still here; I'm actually getting tired of planning, want to just get this show on the road!

Steff, we'll be at the Radisson also, and I think BD and family will be there also. We'll all have to get together in the evening.

The 5:30 meet sounds good to me. Don't forget our shuffleboard tournament on Monday. I've never played, so it should be quite comical. Wonder what they do when those little pucky things go overboard? :eek:

Good morning Steff.


last week we called Air Canada and changed our flight to arrive on friday instead...

A wise move, in my opinion. Long-distance traveling on cruise day is too stressful. I learned my lesson the first time around. My day started at approximately 4am and by the time we arrived at Parrot Cay for lunch I was emotionally numb from all of the day's excitement - AND, still had another 7+ hours to go!


Hi Linda. Glad you finally returned.


I think BD and family will be there also. We'll all have to get together in the evening.

Yes, we'll be there. An evening get together would be most enjoyable. "Buckaroo" thinks everyone should meet around the pool - gee, I wonder why? lol.


Morning, Starwood.


We'll be there also - not sure what time yet but we get in early at Orlando and DH wants to drive around the space coast.

The space coast is an interesting area to explore. I am still debating between a towncar service to the Radisson or reserving a rental car at MCO. Will probably choose the rental for mobility's sake. This way we can drive over to The Perfect Gift and meet Shirley & Norm et al...

This thread was getting lost so I guess it's time to introduce myself and give it a bump. We are a family of four, Myself 38, DH 43, DD 12 and DS 10 (2 weeks shy of 11 when we cruise). This will be the 3rd Disney cruise for myself and the kids, 2nd for DH. The kids and I did the 3 day in '99 and the whole family did the Eastern 7 day in '01. We are also staying at the Raddisson Friday night. I have 4 lime green Mickeys from Home Depot, but my family is showing some resistance to wearing them, especially the 12 yr old DD.

I know that many of you are doing the Captain Marvins Sting Ray City excursion. I would love to do it also, but have only been able to talk my DD into it. I'm not very comfortable with going on my own with just her. If I'm able to schedule the same time as the rest of you (was it 11:30?) would DD and I be able to tag along?

Steff,
A few months back you mentioned that you were scheduled to do the Dolphin Swim in Cozumel at 2:00. My family is scheduled to do this also at the same time.

Glad to here from you again. it's going to be our first experience with the dolphins and we are very excited about it, we think it's going to be the highlight of our cruise, especially DD. And we think that being with people from our group will make it even more enjoyable.

Is the time for Captain Marvin's 11:30 or 11:15? I was just on their site and couldn't find an 11:30 Stingray City Tour.:confused:

it's going to be our first experience with the dolphins and we are very excited about it, we think it's going to be the highlight of our cruise

We are very excited about this also.:Pinkbounc The kids and I are anyway. My husband is a little nervous about it. I had originally booked it without him and then he changed his mind. I think he has seen too many Jaws movies.

Hi Linda,

from another Linda. (Linda H. also

Well that won't work then will it? How about Linda in WNY? Any plans on moving in the next 47 days?:p

Thanks Marcotta and Steff,

I just received my confirmation from Captain Marvin's for the 11:15 Stingray City Tour. What is everyone bringing with them? The email says to bring the obvious, towels and sunscreen. What about drinks? I know I read somewhere that they would serve punch and ice water. Is this ok to drink? Should I bring my own bottled water?

Steff,

Did you notice that for the dolphin swim they ask you not to wear sunscreen? I'm concerned that we are going to get awfully sunburned being the water for an hour without it. I haven't seen anyone else mention this. I wonder how other people have made out.

Linda in WNY

buzz638

Hi Linda in WNY

We are aldo bringing our snorkeling gears.
As for the water we will definitely bring bottled water, unless they offer bottled water on board the boat to the sandbar ?

-

I did not notice that at all. Where did you see that :confused:

I'll agree with you, we're going to look like lobsters if we can't use sunscreen. I have to put at least a little on DD's shoulders and face, the part that will be expose. The rest of the body will be under water for the most part i guess ???

Let me know if you find anything on this

07-01-2003, 10:43 AM
Steff,

I booked the dolphin swim through ShoreTrips.com. They had me print out a pre-paid travel voucher. On the voucher about 1/3 of the way down it says:

Restrictions:
MINIMUM AGE 8 YEARS. FOR THE SAFETY AND COMFORT OF THE CHILDREN AND THE DOLPHINS, ALL CHILDREN UNDER 12 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY ONE PAYING ADULT PER CHILD. Pregnant women are not allowed to participate. Nonswimmers welcome. To participate in the dolphin swim, each person is required to wear a life jacket. Do not wear sunblock while swimming with the dolphins. If you are physically or mentally challenged, please contact ShoreTrips prior to booking.

I was thinking the same thing, putting it on the shoulders and face. My husband is fair skinned so I'm going to tell him to wear a t-shirt.

The chemicals in most commercial sunscreens are not healthy for the dolphins. At Discovery Cove they have special 'safe' sunscreen they provide. Hopefully they'll do that here too otherwise I guess we better all plan to wear t-shirts. (I'm scheduled for the 12pm swim sorry I won't be with the rest of you)

Also I was going to post tonight anyway because as you can see from my counter I'm leaving for WDW tommorrow morn and wanted to say a fond see ya later to my new DCL friends!

Hi!

Linda, no I don't plan to move any time soon. LOL You can still use the "H". I don't use it in my signature.

In GC, I have reservations for the 11:15 Captain Marvin's and the DCL tour and stingray tour. I have never been to GC, and thought I might like to take a tour to learn a little about the place. Haven't decided which one I really want, but will by the time I have to cancel one of them. A little stress, but fun stress.:cool:

Would love to swim with the dolphins, but I don't think DD would be comfortable, since she can't swim. She's already declared she will be staying on the excursion boat when we swim with the stingrays. Even if we could get her in the water with a lifejacket, I think she would still be standing on my head:rolleyes: .:) And since my sister will also be standing on my head, I think it might get a bit crowded up there.

Does anyone know if we would have time to be on the 11:15 Capt. Marvin's snorkel and then make it to the 1:30 island tour?

Hi Marcotta,

The DCL tour excursion I have booked includes Stingray City and starts at 10:45, and Captain Marvin's starts at 11:15, which is why I have to decide on one pretty soon.

Not sure about being able to make both excursions. The Captain Marvin's tour is for approximately 2 to 2.5 hours, but they have several that leave earlier than 11:15. You can check their website at www.captainmarvins.com or call them at 1-345-947-4590

Hello everyone!

I'm happy to report that we will also be joining the Disney Magic Cruise on August 16 - 23! (Just can't wait! :)

We were originally going to wait until December to sail again but the Florida Resident Rates for this sailing were just too good to pass up!

Anyway, in the tradition of Rae519, I've started a list where we can publish names, info, and pictures of those on the cruise! If you would like to be added to the list, just send an e-mail with the info you want put on the site and, if you would like, a picture of those attending.

Now, all we have to do is wait! Of course that's the most difficult part of a cruise on DCL! :D

We fell in love with cruising 3 years ago and keep coming back to the Magic. This is the first time we will be doing the Western itinerary so we are pretty excited. I loved cruising so much I became a home-based cruise travel agent. We get great travel agent rates so we can't pass up an opportunity to sail with her again.

Welcome to the August 16th Cruise! This will be our 4th cruise as well and our second Western. I'm sure that you won't be disappointed in the itinerary!

As far as the Dis meet, I can't speak with certainty about what's been planned but in the past the Dis meets have usually taken place on the ship sometime after the safety drill and prior to cast off.

Where I loose you is the, um, bacon???

Yep, bacon! My sis and I love bacon, but we don't eat it very often. But, every morning on the cruise, we get to have double (even triple :o ) servings of crispy, delicious bacon. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

OOOOO, I forgot, Mango Soup! Love it! And I love the 24 hour drink station. We would go up to deck 10 around 1am, fix a cup of tea, go to deck 4 and sit in those comfy loungers, sipping our tea and talk about how lucky we were to be on that beautiful ship. We're both nite owls, and with late dinner seating, it was after 1 before we could get to sleep (too full :p ).

We haven't prebooked any excursions as of yet. We are considering Captain Marvin's in Grand Cayman or some type of kayaking. In Cozumel we are considering the Tulum ruins.

In Key West we will just do our own thing. We want to visit Hemmingway's house, Duval Street, and a couple of other sites.

We probably won't actually decide for sure until the cruise itself! :)

As far as the touristy thing, we've got that down pat! Lots of shopping for little knick-knacks and such. We'll probably have a margarita in Key West, maybe a slice of Key Lime pie... Ahhh, the vacation life...

And I don't think My parents would like it very much if I said how old they were. If you have a kid or know of someone who is 12 or 9 and is going on the 8/16/03 western disney cruise please write back. Thanks!:cool: :smooth:

Hi Discruisegirl90. Welcome aboard. I wanted to let you that I have 2 boys 8 & 11. I know, I know....they are boys. :rolleyes: If I remember correctly though, there are a few girls that are around your age. (I remember because I was teasing my son);)
I'm sure there will be plenty of people to "hang" with. I'm sure you'll have the time of your life!

Hi disneycruisegirl90

We are booked on the 08/16 cruise and we have a 9 years old daughter(she will turn 10 on the ship) and she would love to meet you and your sister. We are from Québec and my daughter speaks french and a little english,so with a little help i am sure you'll have a lot of fun...

Disney3144 is right, there will be a few girls your age on board

Buzz638 I would love to meet your daughter, What age group is she going to be in on the ship? Will she be in 8-9 or 10-12? I just wondered because she was turning 10 on the ship.
Disney3144 I will probably see your oldest son some time on the ship, because we will be in the same age group.
Thanks for writng back. Hope To See You On THe Ship buzz368 and disney3144.

Hello Buzz638!

We're actually thinking about Captain Marvins in Grand Cayman as well but haven't arrived at a firm decision as of yet. We were on the Western for the Thanksgiving cruise last year and just kind of toured the island on our own, which was really cool.

As for Cozumel... Still not sure on that one either! :)

I'm not sure if the plans have been finalized yet but there was talk of a general Dis meet at 5:30 after the sail-away party on the "secret" deck 7.

As I said, I don't know if everyone has agreed to this or not as the topic seems to have died off.

I noticed your gold Mickey tie in one of your photo albums, Andy. Very snazzy and more than a little appropriate, I would say! :)


Marcotta--

Travis and I wear suits on formal night and semi-formal night. Although I think a tux looks pretty nice, I don't personally own one and can't see spending the money on an outfit I would hardley ever wear. Of course, there is always rentals.

I'm wearing the gold and black Mickey tie with my black shirt and suit for formal night, then I have a red and black Mickey tie that I will be wearing with a white shirt and black suit on semi-formal night. I've only wore a tux twice in my life, once when I got married almost 28 years ago(it was sky blue and I wore blue suede platform shoes, it was 1975 what can I say). The second time was when my DW and I renewed our marriage vows on Valentine's Day 1999. Did you ever get the feeling that BLUE is my favorite color.

I called Disney Cruise Line earlier today to ask if they had any staterooms available on the August 16th sailing. The agent told me that the highest cabin level they had was a category 10 and that the ship was very full!

Just thought everyone might be interested to know that.

I wanted to take a friend of my sons and they said there weren't any rooms left to hold 4. The said the ship was at capacity.

Maybe it was because they are in a higher category than we are. We are in 6 and would have to go to category 5 for a room to hold 4 people. We are on a waiting list in hopes that something will opens up.

I can't wait. Is a meet scheduled for on board? It seems like there are a whole lot of DISers on board.

Lyn, we had a similar problem when we booked (no room for 4). I split us into two separate staterooms. I just looked on the DCL website and there is a cat 5 available on this sailing. Alternatively, maybe there is a cat 11 close to your cat 6 stateroom? It looks like there is a promotional price on the cat 11 which may minimize the cost differential.

Yes, we have a planned DIS meet at 5:30 Deck 7 Aft. I'll use ************' list and print out name tags (nothing fancy).

Andy, what a great pic! I'm sorry that I will miss meeting you and your family. You're going to LOVE the cruise (can't believe it'll be your first)!

Are you talking about these, Marcotta?

http://www.photovault.com/Link/Animals/Reptiles/Alligators/ARAVolume01/ARAV01P06_10.jpg

Unfortunately, like elsewhere in the United States, humans are encroaching upon these animals' natural habitats and thus they are becoming more and more accustomed to living side-by-side humans. When this happens, they tend to loose that natural fear of things unknown to them. This, in turn, is viewed as a "danger" to humans in the area and the animals are captured and killed.

Our state, and its current so-called leadership, has failed to protect the natural habitats and resources by allowing uncontrolled development and growth. I, for one, say feed them to the alligators!

Our doc's have arrived !!!! How exciting. Was I the last one to receive them??? It certainly did feel like it. Can't wait. I am trying really hard not to pack early. Although as I put out some of the "to take" items in our spare room, I think I need to have two areas "necessity" and "can live without/will buy if it becomes a necessity". Any other advise will be well received.

Hi - this is disney3144 - DH - this is the first time I read the DIS boards. Disney3144 has been packed for the last 3 weeks and she is driving me nuts with her 4 pages of items to bring and pack. I just got done reading all (16) pages - it sounds like BD and rest of the group is looking to have a great deal of fun. I will be looking forward to see all of you at the meeting place aboard ship.

Just back from the pediatrician's office:( . DS has a cold (I thought it was allergies but Allergy meds weren't working). I'm pretty sure I have it too (sure feels like allergies). Time to get plenty of rest because there is NO WAY we will be sick for the cruise.

Last cruise I had the worst sore throat 2 weeks before and I couldn't shake it. I ended up taking antibiotics and finished the last one the day we set sail.

I can't wait for my documents either. I actually stopped the Fedex driver as I was driving down my street to ask him if he had anything for me.

In the meantime last week AirTran sent me an email that our flight to Florida on Saturday was cancelled. So now we are going the night before the cruise and staying at the Polynesian. She how I managed to get that night at Disney in.
