Anyone else going on this cruise? It will be me/DH, DD (14) and DS (8) We will be staying at POR the night before and then heading out to the port and after heading back to the world to visit the parks. This will be our second cruise the first one was DCL as well... 3 night Wonder.

Looking forward to the changes in drydock. I've heard that large screen will be really neat!

Welcome! Our DD's will be about the same age then. DS will be 8 and I'm sure he will want to spend some time in the activity centers... we could hardly keep them out last time! They are most excited about that. :teeth:

Is this your first DCL cruise?

We should be arriving the afternoon of the 14th at POR and then driving to the port the next day. Last year we had breakfast that morning at Boatwrights (Banana Stuffed French Toast YUM!) and the kids want to do that again. We will have my parents with us as well.

Yes, this is our first Disney Cruise! My older dd is unsure if she will like the clubs, it would be so nice to have her pen pal with someone else on the ship when it's closer so she feels like she has a "friend" there already! Not that we mind having her hang out with us...but I think she'd enjoy some alone time too.

Do you take Disney transportation to the port? I am wondering what we will have time for the morning that we leave. I was thinking of Boatwrights as well!! <the sweet potato pancakes with pecans sound devine!>

DD would love to have a penpal before the cruise. This would be the first time she'd be eligible for the teen club and is nervous. I told her that none of us necessarily have friends on the ship before we go... we have to make them. :wave:

It would be great to schedule a meet up maybe the night before so they could meet OR we could even say "Howdy!" at breakfast.

We are driving ourselves are you taking the bus? Have they given you a departure time? Last time we left POR at about 8:30 am and got to the port WAY early and even had to sit in the car. Something tells me that the busses don't leave until like 10ish? Being that they bring the other passengers off the ship first and then pick up the ones going but I'm not sure we've always driven. I'm sure you can find that answer on this forum though.

Yes, we are taking the Disney bus. I can't get a real answer as to when it picks up at POR.

Have you done excursions on your previous Disney cruises? We are going to get a "room" at the Atlantis or Comfort Suites so we can do the Atlantis.

Wow! We are going to be running into each other alot.. :laughing: We are planning on doing exactly the same thing! Last year we made our own excursion by walking to the pirate museum in Nassau but this year DD has already asked if we could Puhleeeeze go to Atlantis.

My parents are going on the cruise as well and after looking at the Atlantis website it really looks like it's something! I know that DD is looking forward to some of the water slides and I'm excited to see the aquarium part.

Let me know if you get any killer deals at the Atlantis...and I will be sure to do the same for you! My daughters and I will be at the pool/dig all day while my husband gambles his little heart out and tries to win enough to cover the cost of the trip! :lmao: I can't laugh to hard though...he actually has done just that twice!

I would like to try the brunch, Yes.

We have early dinner. I actually tossed back and forth on that one the first cruise but was happy in the end that we did early. That allowed us to actually be hungry again for the pirate party dessert buffet. :woohoo: Also, DS is autistic and it was just nicer to have him completely fed and the dinner thing over for the shows. That way we didn't have to feed him seperately before the show then attend show and have him either go to the kids club or watch us eat later. I admit that the first night dinner seemed so early but after that it was ok... we actually eat early dinner at home. Now later in the parks we sometimes do not eat until 8pm or after!!! Though our server was wishing that DS would try something other than the cheese pizza for dinner. I remember the last night he asked "Oh Mr Austin would you like something different for dinner tonight?" and He'd already circled cheese pizza on the menu... :rotfl2: so.... cheese pizza it was. Again. Guess it was good?

Yes we will keep a look out on the room rates. We would qualify for the government discount at the comfort though I'm not sure how much of a discount that is. I think last time I checked the room was only going to be $25 off from Atlantis prices. :confused3 but hoping more information comes out over the next few months.

We are planning... hoping... to see Bob Jackson at POR Saturday night... how about you?

Bob Jackson performs at the lounge located in the POR resort. When you get there it's between the check-in part of the lobby and the Boatwrights. I think he starts at 8:30pm. He's not hard to find especially after he gets started... just follow your ears! LOL :listen:

Dinner at the food court or Boatwrights would be a great idea. We have taken the boat over to DTD for dinner about 6ish before and gotten back in time for the show no problem.

Sea world! How fun!

Hi all. We will be taking our first cruise on the Disney Wonder, October 15. My husband and I will be joined by our DD 14 and our DS 5. My mom, brother and his girlfriend have also booked. I would love for my daughter to have the opportunity to penpal to other girls her ago also cruising at this time. I want for her to have an enjoyable experience and would love for her to join the teen club. We were also curious about Palo's brunch and booking a room at Atlantis ( to enhance the Atlantis excursion day). I guess great minds think alike...lol. Would love to hear from anyone who is willing to share information, ideas and excitement.

Wow! This is going to be great for the DD's to have others in their age range! I know that DD would love to penpal. I know that DD has been wanting to do Atlantis. When you get to the Nassau port you can actually see Atlantis from there and it does look wonderful! We will definitly share any information we find here as well. I do know that if you take the excursion it doesn't include the pool areas. We weren't planning to take an excursion but to take a taxi to Atlantis ourselves with already having a room booked then you are free to utilize any/all facilities that Atlantis has to offer.

My parents are also going. This cruise is going to be so much fun!!! :banana: :banana:

We've never stayed at the Nick Hotel BUT have driven by (does that count? LOL) It looks like great fun from both the outside and from the website. The pools look amazing!

POR is the Disney's Port Orleans Riverside Resort. It's a moderate on-site property. This will be our second time staying there before a cruise.. I just love it.

Are you renting a car? How are you getting from the Nick Hotel to the port? Do they have transportation?

Welcome to the DIS also! Great place for all things Disney.

We decided not to rent a car because in investigating it seemed complicated to drop off at the pier and then re pickup on the last day to get to the airport. As of right now I believe we will be taking Mears Shuttle Service to the hotel from the airport which is about $18 per person and then Sunday morning we will call for a private cab to take us to the pier (about $170). For our return it just seemed easier to take the Disney Bus back to the airport, I wont feel as rushed at the point. This is our first time so hopefully this will be the right decision.

MNSSHP is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. It's a special ticketed event that takes place in the end of Sept/Oct. It's located at the Magic Kingdom so after the park closes for the day it's opened back up from 7pm-midnight with a special parade and special shows. This will be our first but we LOVED the Christmas party so I think we'll have a great time at the halloween party. All the characters are dressed up in halloween costumes! There are plenty of threads on this over on the theme parks and attractions board. My mother (pbinman) is making our costumes!

Are the two of you thinking of signing your teens up for the teen excursion on Castaway Cay? It looks like so much fun...but I'm not sure if dd would want to go not knowing anyone.

I would love to do a Palo Brunch since I hear Palo is a can't miss item but I don't want to miss the other dinning experiances either and I don't want to exclude my DD from my dinner options.

I dont think there is a formal night on the 4 night cruise but my DD already has a princess dress she is planning to wear. As for me I figure it is abt. 36 weeks away I am hoping to be 36 lbs. lighter by then :rotfl2: otherwise I'd be packing already. :thumbsup2

well maybe the palo thing wouldnt be a problem with my age if you had waited 18 days to do this cruise. maybe the cruise will be delayed again at least like 15 days then i will be able to go to palo and be able to do the teen thing. i dont think that would work. ooo well sorry mom you will just have to miss out. :confused3

We are boring...we are going with tropical that night I believe! Or...we will be the family holding down our male traveling companion and trying to force him to wear a pirate patch! pirate: Either way...good times! :rotfl:

Nothing boring about tropical! I wish it was a bit more tropical here in Kansas :sunny: But, alas, it is quite cold.

Has anyone seen the DCL fireworks before? How long do they last?

SUE88 :goofy:

We saw them last March on our 3 night. I don't remember how long they lasted but they didn't seem to be very long. Boy that was helpful! Glad I answered huh! :lmao: They were definitly different... it seems like you are so much closer than when you say are watching Wishes in the MK. We are definitly planning on watching them again.

Hi all, I've been looking for this post! :bride: :groom: My fiance and I will be taking our honeymoon on this cruise (as well as a few days before at Disney) Was starting to wonder if we'd picked a bad time! We're definitely dressing up for Pirate night and will probably use the same costumes that we'll wear at MNSSHP to save on packing. We haven't decided yet whether to try Palo or not. I think I'm more excited about the honeymoon than the darn wedding. :woohoo:

Are you staying at one of the Disney Resorts before the cruise?

Thanks! :) We are staying at one of the resorts before the cruise, we just haven't decided which one yet! We've only been to Pop Century before and thought it was great but would really like to try someplace new. It will be our second cruise, but our first Disney cruise. We're both sooo excited.

Sue88
02-27-2006, 09:06 AM
Hey Sparkelly - If you want any advice on resorts we would be happy to give our opinion!

We are having some unusual weather here in Kansas. Upper 60's today and 70's tomorrow. Not what you expect in Feb-Mar but I'm not complaining! ;)

Thanks but I think we've decided to just stay at Pop Century again - it was great the last time and we know where everything's at so we can just get to the parks and have some fun - not that the hotel room isn't fun as well.... ;) ! We decided since we're splurging a bit on the cruise this time (we got a verandah) we'll wait for our Anniversary trip to splurge on a different hotel when we can enjoy it more :lovestruc

It's been freezing cold here in Wisconsin!! Crazy weather, January I was going outside without a jacket and now I'm bundled from head to toe.

Hi there, My names Linda (39) I will be on this cruise too, with my husband Wayne and Daughter Elouise (4yrs) We come from the UK, and this will be our first ever Diisney cruise. Ive been on a cruise before with a girlfriend years ago,however this is the first time for my husband and daughter. We have rented a condo in Windsor Palms for 3 weeks, from 7th to 28th Oct. So the cruise fits in perfect for us. We were going to do the 7 day cruise next May, as doing the cruise in Oct is really strecting the money. However I think at end of May when we could next take holiday, it may be in Europe??!
We know NOTHING about the cruise, what to do etc, so im reading these boards daily! Im driving my husband mad, *** im so excited. We are really doing this cruise,so our daughter can have some time with the characters, and have some fun, while we relax.
What is this about the Atlantis trip? How much is it?
We have opted for later dinner, as we eat latish at home.
Glad there is no "formal" night as such, Husband doesnt do ties and shirts on holiday!!!!
Now we are booked, I need to start my diet!
Keep in touch.............

Hi again. Yes we have been to Disney before. This time we are doing 3 weeks in total ( including the cruise) The cruise is the BIGGIE for me........Its what ive always dreamed of. We see it on holiday programmes, on TV in the UK, and I alway wish to go... and now i am !!!! Im so glad to "speak" to you guys, as im in danger of getting on everyones nerves here. All I want to talk about is the cruise. I know this is unfair, as we are lucky to be going to florida, let alone the cruise ( however we both work hard, dont go out alot, dont drink heavily or smoke) so I guess we deserve some fun?? Disney fun!!!
We are dressing up for Pirate night.
not sure if to do any land trip in Nassue. Would like to see Atlantis, ut not sure of cost. My thoughts why not enjoy the ship/boat, as 4 nights will go so quick. We have requested late dinner. Any other info please let me know. Hoping to meet up with you all at some point. Best wishes....

Hi Lindy Loo :wave:

It sounds like you will have a nice long and relaxing vacation. You are so right to be excited about the cruise portion of your trip! Disney cruising is great.
I don't know how much the excursion to Atlantis is but you have more than one option if you are wanting to see it. It is not that far from where the ship will dock and a taxi trip will be a reasonable alternative (not very pricey). Your family could explore it for a bit and then head back to the ship.
Just staying on the ship is fun too.
And, YES, you definately deserve to have a fun vacation.
I hope to vacation in London some day! ;)

You all have delightful disney dreams. :wizard:

Hey MJ, I will be with two of the best and most fun people too!!! What a strange coincidence. hmmmm.

Hey Lindy Loo, We have late seating too. We will likely be pirates as well. The pirate party should be fun! pirate:

I'm with you for the total relaxation idea....but, we're coming with the grandkids....so, we're looking forward to doing some exciting things with them too!! They've been on a cruise...but, this will be our first. We've been to WDW several times though.

I've started working on costumes....have granddaughter's Cinderella dress almost done...have to start on the whole families pirate outfits soon. :hourglass

SparKeLLy
03-15-2006, 08:53 AM
We have late seating too and definitely dressing up. We have high hopes that the food and atmosphere on this cruise will be far better than our last with a different cruise line :) I'm sure it will. But our last cruise was free and we still had so much fun that we want to do it again - just I lost a few pounds on that cruise because I didn't like the food! It all had the same smell, fine for day 1, but by day 3 it was nauseating. The way everyone talks about Disney the food sounds good and it sounds like a much better selection that what we had on the other cruise. But hey, I guess losing a few pounds isn't bad either :p

Sue88
03-15-2006, 11:24 AM
Well pbinman, you are gonna love cruisin'. It sounds like you will be able to win the award for best costumes on a Disney cruise! You need to keep us updated on how the pirate costumes are progressing.

SparKelly, I have been on one Disney cruise before and the food was pretty good. There were some things I wasn't crazy about but I did try lots of things that I had never had before ( such as snails!) so I was bound to not like everything. There is a very large choice and some of it was excellent. I did get a little addicted to the peel and eat shrimp that was served at lunch every day at the buffet. On the day that we boarded they were serving -cold mango fruit soup. Everyone seemed to love it.

WHAT HAVE I DONE!!!!????
Ok wanted to share this info with you before anyone else, and ask for advice really. I got Dreams unlimited to quote for ANOTHER Cruise, this time on the Magic for 7 night Western for 20th Oct NEXT year. (2007) We havent been on our first cruise yet (obviously the one with you guys) and im booking or thinking of booking the next!!!

The price was $2464.40 for 3 of us in a cat 11 room.
We like the sound of the ports , plus its a longer cruise! ;-)

As I UNDERSTAND, we put the $750 depoit down and if we have to cancel we get this back, so long as its canceled at least 76 days before the cruise. I want to do it now, but Wayne ( husband) is concerned over getting OK from work and getting flights etc. However work wont ok 2007 hols till Nov 2006, and flight wont be out till around this time.

Is this a good price??? I understand the cruise prices go UP the closer to the cruise date. And as I see it, if its true about deposit, we cant loose!

Help I need to win the lottery!!!

Lindy Loo
03-15-2006, 11:43 AM

Hey Lindy Loo,

Congrats on working out the smiley's :thumbsup2 They are fun :rotfl:

Yes! We are doing the 15th of the month Happy Dance Today! :banana:

As for your question about the second cruise, I totally understand. I have not yet had my first cruise but already booked a second :teeth: , friends say "What if you don't like it?" and I say :rolleyes2 "Right, like that could happen" ( note the sarcastic smiley). And Like you say no real risk. As for price I don't know but it sounds pretty good, But I have heard that the cheapest way to book your next cruise is durring your cruise. Maybe someone else here knows more about that.

Lindy Loo
03-15-2006, 03:30 PM
I THINK, correct me if im wrong, that I can book on the cruise IF its cheaper, however at only 10% off, I have been advised that booking early, saves more than 10% 19 months early seems pretty early to me?? :teeth: :confused3

Im waiting to get an e mail from Sue Ellen at DU, to confirm my understanding of the deposit and cancellation fees. etc.
Ive read thread that DCL is getting really expensive. however I worked out that being in a Cat 11 room, for 7 nights works out $352 for the 3 of us. i dont think thats tooooo bad, seeing its the boat, the entertainment, the ports to see and all food. ( we LOVE our food! :yay: )
I suppose we are cruising off peak and the room is very basic. However we dont mind this as we dont intend to be in it long :cool1:

Sue88
03-16-2006, 11:25 AM
I think booking extra early is the best way to do it! You do save money and it gives you something special to look forward to for a good long time and if you need to change your mind it is not a problem. The only thing to keep in mind I think is that if you need to make changes (such as the date you want to go) they may only let you change 3 times. I was once told that I had changed all that I would be allowed without a penalty of some sort.
I'm not sure about this either but I think (besides getting the standard good deal for booking early) the only extra that you get for booking on board is that you get a credit on board your cruise that you are booking. Something like 50 dollars on board credit or something similar.

I have a drawer in my bedroom that I use to put all my stuff that I plan to take on the cruise. Does anybody else do this?? I already have my new toothbrush and travel size toothpaste in my drawer! I have all the other necessary stuff too. It seems like I am always adding something so I may actually have way too much stuff before October.

I hope everyone is having a good week!

Hi Sue88. I have a drawer too...... to put in my holiday bits.
Here in the UK they are starting a hose pipe ban on 3rd April, as we have had so little rain! Apparently Rome had more rain than London in last 8 months??
So we are looking forward to some SUN and water ( the sea )
What do you all think of the Med ports? for us not very interesting, just Spain and Italy ( No venice.... thats criminal!!!)

We have also booked a night at Royal pacific resort, so we can get FOLT access to IOA and Universal. even though we have a villa booked for 3 weeks, we will only be in it 2!! but at least we have a base. FOTL access seems a MUST now FREE express pases have gone.

I am TRYING to hire my DH a HUMMER for a day or two too. Just waiting on Alamo for details. Cant wait to get on the plane on 7th Oct!! :cheer2:

Sue88
03-22-2006, 09:11 AM
Wow Lindy Loo, Your holiday just gets better all the time! The Royal Pacific looks really good (I would like to stay there or the Hard Rock Hotel). Renting a Hummer would be fun too.
I looked at the new med. ports too. It would be fun to do the transition cruise and have all those days at sea and the stop at the Canary Islands. I agree that other cruise lines have some med. ports that are more tempting but I still wouldn't mind Spain. :sunny:
We have had a lot less rain than average as well but we did get a bit yesterday!

MJ- Hey now, lets not get cheeky about the winter stuff! (cheeky! Lindy Loo has me enjoying the England talk!)

03-22-2006, 12:00 PM
Hey Sue, glad you like the "English" talk.... .


I love the "American, Disney, Cruise " talk......... :love:


When we come on the cruise is there anything ENGLISH, you would like us to bring as a small thank you and hello gift. Is there any food you always wanted to try or that you love and cant get in the US. I intend to bring some Cadburys Chocolate........... ( if I dont eat it first !!!!) :rotfl2:

I love all American food, but not Herseys choc... sorry its yuck ! :lmao:

Sue88
03-22-2006, 04:52 PM
Wow! I will need to think about that for a bit. I would probably love to try just about anything from England.
I understand about the Hersheys chocolate. I have heard that our candy and chocolate are nothing compared to yours. We do get cadbury here so I have tried that.

sue88 :flower1: :fish: :flower1:

MJ5MOUSE
03-27-2006, 02:53 PM
All this chocolate talk is making me hungry. I :love: chocolate.

Lindy Loo-I was talking to some friends at lunch today and they said that the Cadbury we buy here in the US is probably not the same as what you can get in the UK. Wanted to let you know my favorite is DARK chocolate ;)

What does everyone like about Florida? Besides the Mouse of coarse! :earsboy:

Lindy Loo
03-27-2006, 03:23 PM
MJ............... hiya........... :thumbsup2 no probs on the DARK Cadburys. I will definately pack some for you to try. Of course under the reasoning that you will need to tell your friends if English Cadburys is as good as American Cadburys !!!! Ha ha Ha!
We also have Bournville in England, which is lovely rich dark chocolate. (Though im more of an expert on milk chocolate)
Do you have Bournville? If not, that will have to come on the cruise with us too. Of course for sampling purposes to compare again. heeee heee. :rotfl2:


What do we love about Florida?
Where do we start, of course Disney, IOA Universal, Seaworld and all the Shopping malls. We love eating out, which is usually better quality and value than in the UK. Of course,us Brits love the sun too. Most of all its kid friendly, and it helps us have 1000s of "once in a life time" moments as a family. Hoping the cruise will create lots of these special times. :love:

SparKeLLy
03-27-2006, 06:22 PM
Mmmmm chocolate. We were just at a World Market store this weekend and bought some chocolate bars, mine was from Germany called Ritter Sport. They had a big selection of Cadbury as well. On a side note, my fiancé’s step-father is from England :)

What does everyone like about Florida?
I love the palm trees!

I just figured out what those little radio buttons next to our pots mean. When they are green you are on line. How about it, are you out there? :surfweb:

Just wanted to let you know that I have never heard of Bournville but I will be happy to taste test any chocolates purly for science of coarse. :rotfl2:

SparKelly,
I love palm trees too! Don't guess I can bring any on the cruise though. :lmao: Guess there will be plenty to enjoy on CC :cool2:

Lindy Loo
03-28-2006, 11:30 AM
Well done I've just noticed the GREEN lights too............. thats handy.

Bournville is on my packing list then, for sure ! :cool1:

How come the days are going sooooo slow? Cant do much now till Oct park hours are released about this weekend, I guess. then I have y ADRs to plan.............emmmm i love my food.

going off line now, its 18.40 in Uk off to cook tea.

hmmm....I think I would like to try the Bournville too. I have never heard of that kind. Lindy Loo, you are very sweet to offer to bring us stuff to sample. ::yes:: Thank You so much!!!

What do I like about Florida??
I like my sister and her family!
I like the beach.
I like all the cool birds.
I like the palm trees and the mild weather.
I like the theme parks.
I like that all my memories of Florida are FUN vacation memories!

The other day I was looking through some of the other threads and I saw that one of the cruise meets threads for September of 2006 they have been coresponding daily for a full year already. They set a goal for 2000 posts to their thread and to never let it drop off of the first page. I think they have nearly succeeded in both.
My question is- LandMark, pbinman, JenCel70, Valarie SI NY, and priorityonecb where are you? :scratchin We want to share in our cruise excitement with you. :grouphug:

I started with the word HAPPY (see above) and the next person who posts can put the first word that they think of at the top of their post.

I have a question as a first time cruiser. I have heared that when you board they anounce your family name. What if all of the partys in your group have different last names? Do they just announce one or each? :confused:

Had to do that one........ thats alot of what my daughter Elouise talks about... Cinderellas castle. :sunny:

Sparkelly, didnt know this was your honeymoon trip ??? :love: Have I read right??? If so major congratulaions to you both. When and where do you get married.?

We got married in the Sandals resort in Dunn River Jamacia. With both sets of parents with us. it was really magical. We had a family party when we got home in the UK. I LOVED planning my wedding!!! I love planning anything to be honest! Good thing Wayne just lets me get on with it. He just " goes with the flow!!

Oct hours are out, so tonight while he is out with his mates, I will be in my element, checking park hours etc :banana:

thanks for the congratulations. Our wedding date is October 7 and we're getting married here in Wisconsin. Since we couldn't get married at Disney we're doing the next best thing and having a completely Disney honeymoon!

We didn't get much planning done yesterday so I'm trying to do that now!

SUCTION HOOK ( a tip from here.... that I need to pack !)


SparKeLLY.... that sounds really wonderful. We fly out of the UK on the 7th, so that date will be exciting for both of us. I will think of you. What time do you actually marry?


This may seem a bit of weird advice from someone who plans so much. However do all the planning you want, then on the morning of your wedding day, just relax and go with the flow. If things go a bit out of plan, try and remember WHY you are getting married and enjoy the day. This is the shortest 24 hours of your life, ( or so it seems ) enjoy every single second :love:

Please please keep us udpated with your wedding plans.... I guess all women just love to talk " Weddings".... xxxx

Just wanted to say a quick good morning to all...Hope everyone is doing well and counting down our days until our own "MAGICAL MEMORIES"...I am slightly frustrated with my planning as I want to book my flight on Jetblue and they havent started booking that far out yet...Thats my last big thing to book and I am getting so cranky having to wait...I also wanted to find out if anyone knows anything about taking Christmas card photos while on the ship...I thought because we were going in October it would be really special to have my holiday pictures of the kids taken on the boat...I was wondering about prices??...Anyone see anything posted on the boards about that???...

Our wedding ceremony will take place at around 4:30 to 5 PM - we have to work out the exact times yet! But the festivities of getting me beautiful will start much sooner LOL. I'll do my best to relax the day of...but I bet I'm a stressed out nervous mess.

I also like to scrapbook but I'm sooo slow at it! I have no space so it's a pain to get all my stuff out and set up then put it all away, takes too long. I have yet to complete the scrapbook from our 2003 trip :o

Speaking of the dry dock, I am really glad we are going right after it and not before when things may look a little less magical!

I dont do the scrapbooking as nice as a lot of people do but I do like to keep little momentos from my trips and add them to my photo albums. On the last cruise I kept things like: a napkin, tickets for excursions, time change notices, and a handful of gold confetti from the Disney Dreams show!

I was thinking that they were going to do the big outdoor tv screen too but I wasnt sure where I heard that or if they had already installed it.
It seems like they usually change something around during dry dock such as change the name of a club or change the theme of an area. I like that things will be freshly cleaned and painted.

My neice just recently read all of our posts on this thread and she says that I act like I don't know her mom (my sister).
So... Just for the record...

Wow the flutes look really beautiful! Will you have your wedding pictures, or at least one snap shot, on the cruise. I would LOVE to see them.

Sisters hey thats cool. Im an only child, and though thats all ive ever known, as I get older I do think now it would be fun to have a sister to chat to and laugh with, share secrets etc.

We are in stateroom 6135... Deck six at the back of the boat (is this OK? ) not beig on a cruise with DLC before we dont know much. We figure this is an "extra" to the 3 weeks villa, so we thought cheap room, so we would have more $s to spend! :sunny:

Just to let you know we have now increased our stay after the cruise to two nights at the Royal Pacific resort. We thought one would be too rushed. We hope to do MNSSHP on Tues 10th.
Anyone else doing the MNSSHP, or done it before. Any tips ? Ive been "ADDICTED" to the Dis, according to my DH :rotfl2: LOL :rotfl2:

Lindy Loo I'm so jealous of the length of your vacation!! I'd love to extend our vacation a few more days after the cruise.

I'll be sure to bring a photo from the wedding.

We're hoping there is a Halloween party on the 12th, otherwise we might come a day early to make it to the party on the 10th. We'd be pretty sad to miss it completely. I've already started (sort of) planning our anniversary trip hahaha.

Sparkelly. Im so sorry, the English board has updated the dates and the 12 is NOW DEFINATELY included.... I phoned disney to double double confirm. We are now going on the 12th, ( at first we had the 10th penciled in, but Elouise is doing the pirate cruise at the Grnad Floridan the next morning at 9am) so this wasnt going to be too good, leaving MK at midnight then back by 8.30 next day. She is doing the cruise with our friends 2 kids, so we had to keep that arrangement. Now the 12th is on, we can lounge around the villa in the morning then have an ADRs at Crystal Palace for about 5pm then party on down !!!! YIPPEE

I noticed your not on the "role call" at the front of this thread... PM Land mark so you guys can get put on. By the way the photos are great. Will TRY and work out how to post some of us, im not that good at technical things LOL

We are second dinning.

Yay! Now we can go ahead with our plans for the 12th, I see the DIS also has the 12th listed now. Although I was sort of liking the idea of getting to come a day early hehe. But this will be better, would be a tiring day to fly in and go right to the party that night.

I'm hungry this morning...So what is everyone's favorite food to eat at Disney? either on the Cruise line or in the parks?

I love the Minnie Mouse Strawberry Bars. Jacob loves the Dole whips, he keeps telling me he can't wait to have some again without sharing with me like we did last time hehe. We haven't eaten at many of the finer restaurants yet, so once we do we may have new favorites. Hope to finally try some on this trip.

On the cruise I really like the shrimp! It is usually one of the choices at the buffet up on deck 9.
At Disneys Animal Kingdom I like to eat at Flame Tree Barbeque. The food is o.k. but I mostly like to sit at their outdoor seating area that is behind it. It is a beautiful oriental garden setting and is very peaceful and has never been crowded when I was there.

Lindy Loo
04-10-2006, 04:40 PM
No we are not on a set dinning plan, as we off site in a condo in Windsor Palms, we like the freedom of a villa, and the washing machine, seperate rooms etc . Though in Oct 2007 as we are only coming for 2 weeks, 7 night land and 7 night cruise we might do 4 nights at RPR and 3 Nights at a Disney resort. ... not sure yet.

Yes we love the Rain forest cafe, most probably eat there the day at AK. AFTER we have rode EE lots of times ( I hope)

The pirate cruise is a kids only cruise from GF. For 2 1/2 hours where they g to different hotel resorts around the lagoon looking for treasure. They have a meal and come back with bandana with mickey ears and lots of loot! While Elouise is doing that we can either shop or have a light lunch at the hotel.... i love people watching too !

The pirate cruise sounds like wicked fun!!! I wish they had one for "adults" hehe. I never got to visit Disney World as a child either. I wanted to badly though. I finally made the dream come true for myself in college when I talked a couple of friends into going there with me for spring break and now this will be my third trip back since. I can't wait, seriously, still 6 months to wait? ughhh hurry up!

I never went as a child either. I was meant to go, as a school trip, with Freddie Laker airlines, they went bust 2 months before your school trip. I was sooooooooooo upset, didnt even realsie my parents lost their money, i was just sooo gutted.

I guess thats why we are doing it all now with Elouise. Its a different experince with a child. kind of slower than when we went "kid free" and we were racing to all the thrill rides. We see things she sees, and are wowed by bits she notices.

As for the pirate cruise for kids, I know I wish they did more adult or family things. The Alice in Wonderland Tea party is kids only too, and that looks sooo much fun.

Booked first ADR today, changed to Crystal Palace (instead of Chef Mickeys, will do CM latere in hol) for Sun 8th Oct, at 8.05am!

After our cruise, we are staying for a couple extra days to hit Universal for at least one day. We're staying at the Holiday Inn Nickelodeon, so that should be fun.
Has anyone rented a car from the port? Is it a complete disaster or should I be OK?

So what is everyone up to these days as far as planning? I'm running out of stuff to plan and It's making me crazy! We don't want to make a bunch of ADRs as we'd rather just go with the flow and decide what we'd like when we get there. And as for the cruise, well...I'm not sure what I need to plan for. Perhaps I could start designing our door sign thingy and maybe some t-shirt ideas. And yay tomorrow is Friday another weekend! :teeth:

Hi everyone............... sorry been really busy, last few days.
Hope everyone had a good Easter? Elouise has so many eggs! All this spare chocolate laying around is just not too good for the diet! :rotfl2:

Got just 4 ADRS left to do this week. We got everyone we wanted, :sunny: :cool1: though my Husband thought I was mad, setting my alarm on my mobile for 12 noon. Where ever I was, I was then on the phone to the USA. Even in the supermarket, I scremed "thank you" really loud, once we got our ADR for 5pm at Crystal Palalce on our MNSSHP date!

Jacob finally put in for his days off for the honeymoon and they were approved - thank goodness! LOL Now he says he's all excited cause people were asking him about where we were going. About time he gets as excited as me!

Hi Cruisers

On January 1st I started a cruise diet. I wanted to loose 1 pound each week or a total of 40 before the cruise :teeth: I was not doing very good though :guilty:

Today I am right on track :thumbsup2 No I did not go get Lipo :rotfl: It was very simple, Just changed my goal to 1/2 pound per week-instant success :wizard:

And I thought dieting was hard :rotfl2:

After reading EVERYTHING on this site for the last few months I've finally decided to join and post. Our family (Myself, DH, DS 11, DD 8) has now booked our first trip to Florida. :woohoo: We'll be doing 3 days prior to the cruise at the Poly at WDW, this cruise, then 3 more days at POR after the cruise. I can't wait!!!!!!! Anyone else have kids the same ages as mine? Anyone else concerned about hurricanes? Any other DH's complaining about "dressing up"?

I may not be on this board often, but I'll try to check back as soon as possible.

Vikingirl...............welcome to our thread, great to have you on board! I bet it took a time to read all our crazy messages!! :rotfl2:
MY DH isnt into dressing up for formal night, luckily its not "formal formal" on the 4 nighter. We have booked a 7 night Western for Oct 07, BEFORE we have done our first cruise! And thats when he will wear a tux. He dosnet mind wearing them in UK, but in the heat, hes not so keen. We might hire on board, as carrying in all in the case from the UK is a big hassle. We only have Elouise who will be 4, sorry, however my she plays well neice whos 7 very well, so might see you around the pool! :cheer2:

MJ5Mouse.....dont talk to me about diets,I so need to loose some weight, and i just cant get my head into it at all. I have been going to the gym. However chocolate and wine are my downfalls. i really wanted to loose weight before Ibiza, but I havents. So I will start on my return for the cruise. I MUST loose some before I go, as i KNOW I always put on when in the USA. Even with al the heat and walking arond the parks ! :confused3

SparKeLLy ......Your wedding topper is beautiful :love: I LOVE listening to your wedding plans, please keep them coming!
If you want to eat in Le Cellier, book an ADR NOW!! On the English board, the hottest topic is Le Cellier being the hardest ADR to get, eve harder than the castle!

So much for me not having time to look on this thread, it my longest post ever!!! I need help, I'm addicted! :rotfl:

My Goodness.. you have all been busy socializing on here. I must admit I havent kept up with reading until tonight.

MJ I see my daughter answered your question about our seating: early.

Kelly.. you and Jake are adorable. Loved your shirts. My daughter has been buying out the Disney store. Every time I go there she shows me something else.

We are all very excited about the cruise. I'll try to communicate a bit more and keep up with everyone's posts.

Ive been making door signs, not amazing ones, admittidely, but me and Elouise have been gluing and sticking photos and pictures on some paper and then laminating them all. The glitter is EVERYWHERE!!! :rotfl:

Jen Cel, when reading the messages I noticed you posted in March, How are You ???? are you getting excited yet ???

05-05-2006, 09:04 AM
Lindy Loo: I took your advice about Le Cellier and after reading around the boards a bit about it I was getting nervous we wouldn't get in. So we decided about what time we want and I called yesterday and I guess I'm just lucky but we had our choice of times. I had my choice of times when I called for CRT too. Maybe it's because it's just 2 of us? The way everyone talks I didn't expect either to be as easy as they were :woohoo: I'm totally glad you told me to get the ADR though as I'm sure it wouldn't have been that easy or possible if we had waited until we got there. My further research into Le Cellier has deepened my excitement to eat there though! Yummmm. So excited. Have fun at the beach!!!

Valerie SI NY: Thank you for the compliment. Guess what I bought now! LOL There was a coupon too good to pass up at the disney website so I bought Jake a pirate costume (we may need to modify it since it might get too hot) and I bought myself this dress (http://disneyshopping.go.com/DSSectionPage.process?Merchant_Id=2&Section_Id=11873&Product_Id=194637)! I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I do, it's so comfy. I hope to wear it the first day of the cruise.

I also spent a small fortune buying our park tickets and MNSSHP tickets yesterday. The only thing we need now is airfare and to figure out our transportation from the Airport -> Disney -> Cruise -> Airport.

:welcome: vikinggirl

The more the merrier party:
So glad you are joining us.

Please don't worry about the Hurricanes. :sad2:
I live in Florida so I am used to having them around but there are two good reasons not to worry.

1. When you are on a ship you can go to where the Hurricane is not, so even though you may end up on a different itenery the storm will not ruin your vacation.

2. It's Disney, and Disney does it right :lovestruc If they have to change coarse you can bet that they will make sure we still have a "Wonder"ful cruise.

SparKeLLy glad you got Le Cellier, apparently the cheese soup and bread are their signature dishes and are LUSH!!!! Ive been told this by loads of people. so thats what we are going to try. I do think you are right about getting in easier if you want a table for 2. Our friend did get an ADR for LC, however they had to book two tables for 2, as there was no table for 4 left???? They are hoping to put the tables together? I havent been yet, but it is quite small, so maybe thats why it get full too. Your dress looks nice, practical and cool !!!!

Its nice to have some new people joining in to........... wonder how many peope will be on this thread by Sep ??? Loads I Hope.

Ive just made green mickey shaped lugguage labels, with DIS and DIB ( The UK site) on, so we can hang it from the buggy. We might do a meet up with other UK Dibbers, onthe MNSSHP night of the 12th for group photos.

By for now...

LOVE the end topper. looks fab! SparKeLLy ! you should think about offering this personal service on places like E Bay, I bet alot of people would like to have a unique and personalized topper like yours.

Ive been pretty good about deciphering the abbreviations.. but MNSSHP is a bit beyond me. :confused3 Anyone care to enlighten me?

About door decorations.. does anyone have a picture? My daughter (or should it be DD?) and I are discussing options. Im not very creative but she's a scrapbooker and Im sure will come up with some very innovative arrangements (Sorry Jen.. putting the pressure on you to "create" :love: ). I will be in SW Fla Memorial Day week and will look for some beachy stuff for the door.

Even my DS and DSGF are excited.. she's gone online and found them some pirate costumes for pirate night pirate: . She's so bubbly and cute.. can't wait till we're all cruising.

Patrons are encouraged to wear costumes and you can trick-or-treat through the park. Never been so I can't say much more but I'm sure some of the others can

Hi everyone. :wave2:

Well Elouises party was fine !!! Exhausting but great fun!! Imagine 39 kids, a massive bouncy castle, a clown entertainer :clown: ( all with NO wine, well not till all the kids left! :goodvibes ) Thank goodness its only once a year! :teeth:
Elouise isnt 4 till 2nd June, however we go to Ibiza in Spain on Sun, then its school holidays and of course the world cup ! So party was brought forward, not to clash with all these.

I'm listening to the news as I type, they say 3 people have been killed by crocodiles/Aigators, in Orlando in THIS week?? Wow, scarey!! due to water shortage and building being put on swamp land, so crocs are coming out of their enviroment looking for food.
Years ago we were playing golf in Florida and one was in a bunker, "sun bathing"!!! I was soooo scared!
Its raining here today, and is forecasted to rain all week, however we have a hose pipe ban and they are saying we might get restricted water to houses soon, if we dont get some water from rainfall soon.

Nice pressies MJ...... wow our mothers day presents are normally flowers or chocolates, maybe a ameal out etc. nice one ! :cheer2:

IS THERE ANYONE ON THIS THREAD EATING SECOND DINNER, (HOPEFULLY THE FIRST SITTING ON THE 2ND ROTATION IE 8PM) THAT FANCIES TRYING TO JOIN UP A TABLE ???
THOUGHT THIS MIGHT BE FUN :confused3

Sue88

The party sounds really nice, especially the bounce castle! How fun! Elouise was probably happy that you had the party a bit early.
I was suprised by all the gator attacks too because they are usually pretty rare. I know that we should be very careful around gators and that they can run very fast but when I have seen them I just want to look and take pictures! :sad2:

We (MJ, me(sue88) and MJ's DD17) are on the second seating and I would enjoy sitting with your family! We will probably have 4 in our group because my neice is trying to get a friend to join us.
Hey MJ-Lets sit with Lindy Loo!!!

Yes, the Gator attacks are strange. There have only been 19 in all of Florida's recorded history and now three in one week. :confused3

Aligator sightings are quite common here and I too have seen very large gators basking in the sun and have paid little notice. I would be very cautious about going too close though. :sad2:

I would :love: to sit with you Lindy Loo as long as precious Elouise princess: doesn't mind being the center of attention as the only 4 year old and Wayne doesn't mind sitting with 6 beauties. :grouphug:

BTW I read a really good trip report today by nixieh http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1105246 they are from the UK, have three adorable DD's and it sounds like they had a wonderful time.

would anyone else like to join us ??? Sparkelly, are you on a table for 2 since its your honeymoon?

OK how do we go about asking disney to link our meals?

OH Sue, Yes please, ddo phone them. It will be amazing if we can get together!! :cheer2: :banana: :cheer2:

You may need our booking references etc, if so i will send you a PM with all our info on.


I THINK the tables for groups are for 8 or 12 people. What a table we will be !!!! :rotfl2:

Just read the trip report, that was recommended in this thread a few messages ago,( thanks for mentioning this, I had missed it ) from a family in the UK. I read it like a story to Elouise, she thinks it sounds like a " big adventure" !!!! :Pinkbounc

No one is posting today?? :confused3

OK, I had a little computer trouble this morning :badpc: but things seem to be better now.

I phoned DCL yesterday and they said that we needed the reservation number and the first and last name of the person who made the reservations and then we can request to be seated together. He said that they could not guarantee that we would sit together but there would be a good chance that we would. He also said that if for some reason that we could not sit together that they would try to have our tables be close together.

So Lindy, let me know your information if you want me to set it up.
And sparKelly, if you decide you want to be with us let me know soon too.
It would be really nice to eat together! :thumbsup2

If it's not too late to join up we'd love to sit with you all as well. Let me know if you haven't already made arrangements and I'll pass along the info you need. Is the reservation number the confirmation number?

When I was a little girl my mom used to put my hair in little pig tail spirals that look like springs. The boys used to pull them. :p

SparKelly, so glad you are joining us. :grouphug: I emailed my sister to check the boards for your info. You can go ahead and PM the confirmation # and first, last name of the person who made the resie. to her

BEHAVE
(remember that old commercial that promised "bounce'n and behave'n hair?)

Hello everyone!
I did call on Saturday and requested that Lindy Loos family be seated with MJ, MJ's DD and me! And, Lindy, I requested the 8:00 time slot and they again reminded me that they would try to meet this request but that it is not guaranteed.
I will call this evening and add sparKelly and her sweetie too. I am really glad we are all going to eat together!

Hey Lindy - Is hair bunches and pig tails the same thing?? I enjoy learning about the things that we say a bit different.

MJ-How is my favorite sis??

I got a travel kit in the mail today from DCL :teeth: Very exciting to see any envelopes from Disney in the mail hehe.

Thanks so much Sue for taking care of the seating arrangements, sorry we didn't get back to you sooner so you didn't have to call again. We agree it will be fun to dine with a group especially on pirate night! Was everyone dressing up for that? Can't remember. We are.

Warning....I take pictures of my food :p

Hi SparKeLLy - I called DCL and requested that they add your name to our seating request. The guy (castmember) that I talked to was nice. It seems like the last couple of people I talked to before were not really as nice as would be expected for Disney. Anyway, he said that we are all now "linked". So now we just hope for the best that we are all at one big happy table!

I plan to dress up for the pirate night/party. I have one shirt that is kind of pirate-ish and I also have a Disney Pirates of the Caribbean t-shirt. I don't know which to wear. I also plan to wear some random pirate stuff. pirate: pirate: pirate:

Is LindyLoo in Spain now? I hope she gives us many details when she gets back!

We are going to have the best Pirate dinner on Pirate night! I want a picture of our whole pirate group. Can you imagine little Elouise as a pirate! :rotfl:

SparKelly-I can understand taking a picture of your food. Sometimes its easy to forget what we eat and this way your memory will stay sharp. I am hungry! I wish we were at Tritons right now so I could get some good sea food.

MJ- I wouldn't mind that rotation. I wouldn't mind any combination really.

Yay Friday! Is anyone doing anything special over the weekend??

We don't have any set plans, but hopefully we'll get some wedding stuff done.

We haven't decided about Palo yet, though we'd like to try it...but we'd hate to miss one of the dining rooms!
