Okay, fellow cruisers, those of you that will be on the Magic with us on the 27th, are you completely ready??

I have been placing all the 'cruisewear' together with the luggage, and have intended to pack it for a couple weeks. BUT, I will actually do it tomorrow. Just wondering if I am the last one to get it together! We actually leave on the 24th, riding down on the train.

See you all there...
Now what am I forgetting?????

Completely ready, no, but we're in good shape. Only a couple of quick things left on the 'to do' list for the week and then we're finished! Can't wait!!!:Pinkbounc

About 70% packed. Trying to fit in a few last minute odds and ends. See you all soon onboard the Magic!

I already posted this on the Cruise Meets board, but I thought I should post it in this thread too.

Here's a DIS Meet on the March 27 Disney Magic cruise. What's a DIS Meet? It's just a chance for people who post here on the DIS Boards to meet each other.

Date: Monday afternoon, March 29, the first full day at sea.
Time: 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Location: Promenade Lounge on Deck 3, halfway between Lumiere's and Parrot Cay.

It was impossible to pick a time when there is no conflict with any other scheduled activity. But 4:00 p.m. is a quiet time between the daytime activities and the Captain's Welcome Reception at 5:30 p.m. (for those of us with late dinner seating. To get an idea what else might be going on that afternoon, see http://www.*******************/westday3.htm

I'm now aware of 17 posters who have said they'll be on the March 27 cruise:

There may be others.

If anyone wants to plan another DIS Meet at another time, in addition to this one, that would be fine too.

It's Sunday morning and I haven't even started! I do have a stash of stuff in the spare bedroom, but today's the day for washing the summer clothes and then start to pack! My husband is off working today, so I have the house to myself for the day! (Really makes it easier!). Mentally I am ready, Physically, well, I gave up on the diet weeks ago, so I guess I am as ready as I'll ever be, and packing wise......I'd better get off the boards and get to work!

Spent all day yesterday packing for DH and myself. It was such a chore and I'm sure I've packed too much but the end result will be well worth it. I can't imagine packing for the kids too. We have it easy this time - our first is in my tummy as we speak. We leave Thursday afternoon the 25th, driving down (ugh!!). Hoping for great weather and calm seas!!!

I packed all the suitcases yesterday (Sunday)...whew, surely I don't need all THAT?! There are three of us going, myself and 2 teens, and we have one pullman each and one carry-on. Is this too much? Still need to get all the paperwork stuff packed-tickets, ID, cred card, etc together. We leave Wednesday AM and I am tired already. But the nice thing about not driving, which is what we usually do, I will be able to actually read a book and relax. So a special thanks to all of you that made book recommendations on the other thread.

( I know I should be taking some of that stuff out of the suitcase...)

I will also be on the 27th Magic. Our first cruise, our first experience with Disney period. I am one of those "grown ups" who has never been to the mouse house. We are so excited, I can't sleep and I have been packed and ready for a week! (We are a family of 5 and that is no small feat.) Just a few last minute items that I think of will be added, if needed. We leave Friday and stay at the Radisson. Yes, I've read all the posts about the shuttle and we called, and are confirmed for the 11:00 shuttle to the port. Thanks for the heads up about that! We are traveling with 4 other families and will all be in Cat. 4's. (Kimer is in our group, she's a nut!) This board has been so helpful, I appreciate all of the "expert cruisers" and their advice. See you all there......

I still haven't packed. Some of my cruise clothes are in a pile. My Husband hasn't even thought of packing yet. He says he'll doing it Wednesday Night. I guess at this point that's when I am doing it too! I'm busy tonight and tomorrow. At least I got the laundry done yesterday and I have clean clothes to pack. I have everything I need, I just need to put it all together!

I am soooooooo ready (other than the packing!)

Nswift, how long of a train ride do you have? I see your from St. Louis. How long will that take? Have a safe and fun trip down, See you there!

I have not even started! Although I bought almost all new clothes for my girls so those are in a pile in my bedroom along with some new things that I just had to buy for myself. DH got the suitcases down and packed himself yesterday. I think I will leave work now so I can start. All of a sudden I have a panicked feeling in my stomach!

The piles have slowly been building for the suitcases but packing won't happen until Friday. It will be a busy day flying down EARLY Saturday.

MrsFuzzmo-we get on the train at 845 in the morning on the 24th and arrive Orlando on the 26th at 1130. I know it sounds like a long trip, but we consider it part of the vacation. We love the train, and I love having my teens undivided attention. Of course, I fit in time to read.

Pooh Fan in WV-congrats on the new lil minnie or mickey :-)

Must go get those documents together..

Oh my gosh, I haven't even started to pack. I did get the clothes to the cleaners and DS's have all their new clothes bought. We are out tonight and have hair cuts tomorrow night. Should be able to start packing on Wednesday:eek:

Had to plan for DS's bday party this past Saturday (he turns 9 on the boat). :jester:

See everyone on the boat on Saturday

What an awesome place to be on your 9th birthday~!
Do you have early or late dinner? We are late dinner-if you have that seating we will watch for his birthday song :-)

How's everyone doing with their packing now? It's Wednesday and I'm STILL not packed! I'm really beginning to get nervous because I don't want to be up all night Thursday packing. Of course if I do that then I won't have to get up early to print off my Southwest boarding passes - I can print them out at 12:01 a.m. before I go to bed!

I'm working on packing the non-clothing items and will save most clothing until Friday (we live 3 hours from port and will be driving there on Saturday morning). But I have done tons of shopping and washing and preparing clothes for the trip.

What time is everyone planning to arrive at port? We hope to be there around 10 am.

See you soon!

Yep, it's Wednesday and still not packed!! I swear I'm going to get those suitcases out tonight:(

nswift - We are currently on the early dining but that might change. We are going with friends and they have the late seating (waitlisted for early). We are going to try to get our dinners together once we are on the boat. I have a feeling it might be easier for us to go to the late dinner than for them to get into the early dinner.

Is it Saturday yet!?!:cool:

sstucush-planning to be there around 10:30. hope that's early enough!

just one more day, and we're off on our vacation!!!! Yayyy!!!!

Packing?

I knew there was something I forgot to do.

Maybe I'll just bring our passports, our cruise docs, some empty suitcases, and a credit card.

03-24-2004, 10:45 PM
A very large credit card...

:D

We packed most of the stuff two weeks ago, as it was the only time the children (the cruise is a surprise to them) were all away. Now I've forgotten what I packed!

Worse, I've forgotten what I needed to add (other than the passports, tickets and credit card!), and I can't do anything and still be, you know, secretive...

We leave tomorrow at 3pm, so we are for the most part packed. Feel like we packed half of what we own.
See yah!

Is this a new cruise show or the one that has been on about a thousand times before?

I need to take today off from work now because I waited until the last minute. I can't believe that I did this to myself!

That's the weight of our suitcases! Mine & my husbands respectively. He says his weighs more because he's bigger and his clothes need more material!
We are packed and leave at 4:45 am tomorrow morning (Fri.). My sister in law is taking us to the airport and we will be off! Can't wait. We are staying at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Cocoa Beach Friday night. See you all Saturday!

KAMLEM-not sure, just read it on this board on another thread. i assume it's the old one. i'm just setting my VCR, so i can view it when we get back...you know, a collection of disney magic, and to reminisce, etc. i figured it wouldn't hurt! :wave2:
