I have posted a site on here since early December waiting for fellow cruisers. We thought we had the ship to ourselves!!!
A wedding at the Polynesian sounds so wonderful. What an exciting vacation you have planned!!
This is DH and myself 3rd cruise (2previoswith RCC) , but first with Disney.
My DS-17 , DS13 and DD-4 are coming with us this time. Last big fling before oldest is off to college.
We are getting excited for the trip. Just got back from buying my DD-4 her snorkel and mask. She swims like a fish, like her brothers

My countdown clock is ticking away!!

There must be a few more DISer's on the 3-11-04 WONDER cruise.
We are excited and ready to go.
It is ICE outside today again here in MISSOURI. Yesterday, I left for my work at around 0500 am and was sliding down my hill sideways and backwards!! My DH came to my rescue, as always, my hero , and drove me on to work. Today I am at home and he had to venture out again in this mess.
Snow I can deal with being from Iowa and Minnesota, ICE is a different story......

Makes me long for CC with a BIG drink in hand and sun above!!

The time is drawing near!!!....

Feels real now with the arrival of our documents.
I have my trusty list in hand and am getting ready to tackle assembling everything in one place for all 5 of us.

I bought sunscreen the other day and just sprayed it in the air at the store to get that scent we all love......

Really put me in the mood

Also , a bragging mother here..... My son's swim team just won the Missouri State team title yesterday. I am so proud of him and his fellow team mates!!
More reason to celebrate with this cruise!!!!:hyper:

We are staying in a category 4 Family Stateroom. Looks like it will be a tight squeeze, but then you really are not in the room all that much anyway!!!
Your Documents should be arriving shortly. I ws surprised to see them left on our door step so soon!
My 2 boys, now 17 and 13, also are in Scouting. I remember that crossing over Cubs to Scouting as a big step in the next stage of their lives. It is exciting and bittersweet at the same time. My 17 DS is an Eagle Scout -2 yrs ago- . My 13DS is a Life Scout-will be working on Eagle this next year.
I just got back from shopping. I can not get over how fast the kids are growing. I am glad I made them try on some summer things to make sure that they fit! A lot did not. I hit Old Navy for some decent sales....

We have late dinner seating. With 17 and 13 DS's and 4 DD I think this will work ok. Will take DD-4 to early show after a snack. Then she can join us at dinner for a Mickey Ice cream bar and then off to the kids club for the evening movie.

Spa- We will not participate on board as will have just stayed at Universal Royal Pacific conceriege level with access to their spa.

THe Rain Forest does look interesting- steam, saunas aroma therapies, mud etc..... Do a "Search" on the board for this...

Did you book with a TA or Disney?? I think maybe a phone call is in order now especially with you leaving so soon for Florida!!
Our TA left them , thru a courier, on our front porch, which I was not too happy about as had lots of snow falling then! I knew to keep an eye out or we might not have found them until the big thaw!!!!!
