Hi there

I thought I'd start this thread as it is only 1 YEAR TODAY (YIPPPPEEE) until our 4 night Wonder cruise. We only booked this cruise 3 days ago, but we are so excited as this will be our 4th Cruise.
So are we travelling alone? Don't be shy and say 'hi'

mandymouse :)

:wave: Hi mandymouse.

No you will not be travelling alone. :teeth:

You will definitely have company on this cruise.

As of now, myself and my husband are booked.

Also there are 2 other DISers and husbands booked and a few more making up their minds if they are coming for sure.

I just got off of the Jan 8, 2006 - 4 night Wonder Cruise last week and can't wait to go again.

Hello everyone!. :) ..

I have been looking at the cruise pics of the day thread....Soooo Cool. :cool2: ..and TW has posted there also!

Robin,
I was on the Ecstasy (carnival) and the Nordic Empress ( RCCL)..Both were nice ...
I liked the food and the room MUCH better on The Ecstasy, but I liked the entertainment alot more on the Nordic Empress...The NE was alot smaller...

I am really looking forward to seeing how the Disneys cruise compares to them.

I dont care too much about the Nassau stop,(BTDT) but I am looking forward to CC....That Island looks very nice...and the adult beach looks nice and relaxed :goodvibes and I like the idea of renting the bikes and exploring...

I also love to snorkel...I hope the waters clear enough :wizard:

We have sailed on the Carnival Fantasy (see it every time at Port Canaveral when we go on a Disney Cruise) and also on the Royal Carribean's Monarch of the Seas, once out of Fort Lauderdale to Key West and Cozumel and once out of Los Angeles to Ensenada Mexico.

I know what you mean about Nassau. I've been there a few too many times and don't even care if I get off of the ship. Of course if a bunch of us wanted to go on an excursion together somewhere I would certainly be open to that idea.

I DO think that anybody who has never been there before should get off and have a look around though, especially if you enjoy being called "pretty lady" :teeth:

Castaway Cay is a very nice island. I enjoy going over to Serenity Bay and just enjoying the ocean and the sand and the fishes and the peace and quiet (well usually it is peacefull and quiet)

I have heard that it is better to snorkel at the adult beach because at the family beach after awhile the water gets all messed up because of the amount of people there and it gets clouded with the sand. Although at the family area there are things to look at under the water that Disney has put there, little surprises. ::yes::

Hey everyone

I'm so sorry that I haven't been keeping an eye on this thread, I honestly thought that I was the only person to have booked so early :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

Let me introduce myself, I'm Mandy, I will be travelling with my hubby Paul and 2 daughters who will be 15 & 13 when we cruise.

This will be our 4th cruise, we have been on 3 x 3 night Disney Cruises and we can't wait for the next one. Our last cruise was in May 2005 and we had a great time and really enjoyed the Pirate party.

Is anyone else travelling with kids ??

It's lovely to 'meet' you all, and I look forward to getting to know you a little more.

Mandy :)

Hi Mandy :teeth: Nope you are not the only fanatic who books so far in advance :rotfl2:

My name is Robin, glad to meet you. It will be just my husband Rick and myself on this cruise, as far as I know right now. We have a son who will be 23 and a daughter who will be 19. I don't think either of them will be coming on the cruise.

I have brought along all of my Threadkiller friends from the Community Board to keep you company on this thread.

We have all decided as a group that we are going to try and get as many of us regulars on our thread as we can to book this cruise. ::yes:: Only time will tell how many others can be convinced to come along.

We all hang out over on the Community Board in our own little quiet corner of the DISboards. We welcome all and any newcomers to come over and post with us. If you want to come and visit, you can find us here........ http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=11220252#post11220252

We are going to be on deck 7 w/ the rest of my family (a total of 20 of us, my parents, us six daughters and hubbies/fiances, and our six kids).

This is our second cruise with Disney and we can't wait! Take care!

01-20-2006, 01:29 PM
:jumping1: Hi back mandymouse! Come on up to deck 7, we are at the forward part of the ship. Now that we kinda know what to expect from last cruise, we can relax alot more and enjoy! Look for a big family wearing matching hawaiian print outfits, we did that last year and it was pretty fun! Everyone connected us to our families that night! Can't wait to meet everyone!

P. S. How did your girls like the teen scene on the DW, my son will be one month shy of 14 ys/o, he was 12 on our last cruise and had a blast in the Oceaneer Lab. I saw they still have counselors (which I think is still a good idea).

Hi Kelly :wave: and welcome aboard with us.

We will be on Deck 6 too, so I guess all of Deck 6 will be coming up to Deck 7 to see what is going on there ;)

Anybody care to share their cabin numbers?

We are right now booked into Cabin 6011. It is a Category 11, sideways cabin. It is kind of different than the normal cabins. We were in that same Cabin on the Jan 8/06 cruise that we just got off of and we rather liked the cabin and it's layout.

Ahoy there

We're Deck 6 Midship, (I'll get back to with the number), I get the feeling that we're gonna have a ball on this cruise.

Last year eldest DD was 13 and she went to the teen club, she had a brilliant time and she is really looking forward to going in again. We hardly saw her in the evenings, after dinner she was off to Pizza Parties, cinema and just hanging out in The Loft. Youngest DD is looking forward to trying the teen club too, as she didn't like the kids clubs, there was too many younger kids in there for her.

Will everyone be dressing up for Pirate night ? Although we did last time, we bought Captain Jack Sparrow T-shirts from the Pirates of the Carribbean store after the ride in WDW this past Christmas, so I think we'll be wearing those. pirate:

For past cruisers, do you prefer the Pirate nights or the old Tropical Deck party ? Although the Pirate night was very entertaining, I missed the TD party as I love to get up and boogie to the 'Cha Cha Slide' and the 'Macerana'.

Mandy :)

Cruisin
01-20-2006, 04:05 PM
We probably won't be dressing up for Pirate Night, my stick in the mud husband wouldn't even put the head scarf on in the dining room this past trip :rolleyes:

Hmmm, the Pirate Night or the Tropical Deck Party. Well, the fireworks are neat and there is a lot of "action" on Pirate Night but the Tropical Deck Party was cool too. I guess I don't really care too much, just as long as I am on the ship :earboy2:

We don't usually do excursions either but we did go to Atlantis for a couple of hours last cruise. Mainly we went just for my parent's sake. They'd never been before and had seen pictures and so wanted to go see for themselves.

We did the glassbottom boat tour once. Wasn't very thrilling at all :sad2:

We did the Atlantis Dig excursion through Disney once too but decided just to take a taxi over to Atlantis on our own this time and explore around.

WE had a really good taxi driver. He got us there quickly and in a sane manner. He gave us his card and said we could have the taxi stand guys give him a call and he would be there to pick us up again in a few minutes.

We were satisfied with his service so we did have him called and he was there within 2 minutes :eek:

I don't know if we would get off the ship next year. I guess it depends on if our friends are doing something exciting and want us to tag along :p

I loved Ohanas before...But they have taken away the items (the tiger shrimp, and the pineapple/caramel )from the menu that were the reasons I liked it so much...So Im not planning on going there this time around(my May trip)...But we are going to do the Aloha dinner(not sure what its called)..for my sister...I hope its ok....I have read good and bad about it so its hard to judge :rolleyes:

I agree, on our first cruise, we flew home that day, and I have never been so depressed about leaving Florida. Now we always make sure that when we leave the ship we have at least a day before coming home. It's sad to get off the ship, but nice to know that we're off to Disney.

Hi Kelly's daughter :wave2: I hope you are excited about your trip too.

I don't mind where we meet, we all love Epcot (but any park will do), we could all meet for fish and chips in the UK pavillion, or inside the Rose & Crown for a drink, or anywhere I really don't mind

Oh dear I'm getting far too excited now, and we've got months to go :rotfl2:

Good night, and I'll 'speak' to you tomorrow

If we are going to have a DISmeet on board let's try to plan to for a more relaxed time.

The last one I went to, I saw people for all of 5 minutes before everybody scattered to have fun. I didn't have time to figure out who everyone was and I didn't recognize them later when I came across them on the ship.

This time I would like to have a bit more time to casually get to know who everyone is. It doesn't have to be really long but more than 5 minutes would be nice.

I know it's hard because everybody is excited and there is so much to do when you first get onboard. It is really hard to find a quiet time when you are not rushing to do something.

Maybe we can have a reception that first evening AFTER disembarkment..maybe before or just after dinner?(or is there something that goes on that first night?)..If so maybe a morning meet the next day???

I wonder if they would let us use a lounge in the am...I cant think that a lounge would be busy (or even needed) in the am... :confused3

Just a few thoughts :)

The first day is Nassau, and we won't be getting off to tour, we'll probably get off to take some photos, and that will be that. The Promenade Lounge is usually pretty quiet in the morning, as there is no entertainment on. I guess it depends on those people who are getting off at Nassau. I'm happy to go with the flow :)

What seating have you arranged for dinner ? We are early seating

disallday!

So far we have chose the 8:15 seating, it worked better for shore excursions l/y. I don't think we are going to do any excursions this time but it'll be hard for me to change 16 other minds to do early seating :sad2:

So everyone thinks it would be great to meet on the 2nd day? We'll have to contact DCL to see if they wouldn't mind us meeting in the Promenade Lounge! Just to warn everyone.... I'm still gonna try and track ya down the 1st day. :rolleyes1 I've kinda got a feeling where ya'll r located, don't worry I'm not gonna stalk ya :angel:

I saw another website were some cruisers all ordered those bracelets like the Lance Armstrong bracelets (green ones though) so they could find each other easy :confused3 Maybe we could start our version of the purple hat club princess: so we can tell quickly!!

The Promenade Lounge is a perfect spot for a meeting and there is no need to ask Disney first if we can use it. We just all show up, no big deal.

There are also other good places like Diversions, which never looks busy. It's in the adults only area but children are allowed there until 9pm if anybody wants/or needs to bring them along.

Other possible places could be on deck near the adult pool or Cove Cafe (adult coffee room) .

Those are just a few suggestions of places we could meet onboard.

Of course those of us that are at the terminal early can meet there too.

Mandy - the Threadkillers are all on early dining rotation and we are so far all linked together with our reservations, so we should be sitting together or near to each other. :woohoo:

Great stuff !!!

We will be at the Port for opening, last time we were there at 10am, and it wasn't open, so we'll be there for 10ish again

Oh that poor dining room !! if it has all of the T'kers in one room, other people will be begging to change rotations - LOL :lmao:

I like the idea of having something like a bracelet to identify us. I've got a couple of Mickey Mouse one's, so if we agree on a colour I can get one before we board - and I feel better with a bracelet, than a very bright lime green t-shirt :rotfl2:

Keep on planning

Does anybody have any plans to eat at Palo?

This will be our 8th cruise and we have never eaten at Palo's yet :confused3

Quite often we are cruising with first time cruiser and don't want them to miss anything that goes on in the main dining rooms there first time around.

One of these times we are going to give Palo a try. I've looked at the menu and it really doesn't appeal to me all that much either though, so I'm not really in any hurry.

Has anybody eaten dinner or brunch there?

mandymouse
01-26-2006, 02:03 AM

I've never ate at Palo but since it'll be your 8th cruise, I'd go for it. It looks very inviting and tasteful :p If you do go, post your exp so when we go on our 3rd cruise, (our kids will be older) we can go! :thumbsup2

Yes you do repeat a night on the 4 day cruise but the repeat night is Pirate Night so the menu is totally different and so is the atmosphere at dinner that night. So I'm not to sure if you would want to miss it, especially if you've never been there for Pirate Night before. Depending on the dining room you could maybe miss out on the first night and go to Palo.


If everyone decides they want to go to Palo, Betsy, then we would probably be willing to go too. Maybe if we got a group together we could get them to let us use the private room. :confused3

Yes, we are also doing the early seating with Betsy and gang of course :teeth:

It is true that if you have the early seating that you are expected for the earlier breakfast on the last day.

However, if you don't want to do the early seating at breakfast you can always eat up in Beach Blanket Buffet too. They serve a buffet breakfast very similar to the one they have every day but no special made omelets are available. You can still get cereals, scrambled eggs, toast, bacon etc, plenty of food up there.

We prefer the early dining because it feels like we have more of an evening left to enjoy after dinner. If you don't eat dinner until 8:15 or 8:30 then you can't fully enjoy the dessert buffet on Pirate Night out on deck. :teeth:

Same for us Robin, we like to eat early, I don't think I'd be able to sleep if I ate too late. We also go to the Beach Blanket on the final morning, it's bad enough that we have to be up at 6am for immigration (us poor foreigners :lmao: ), but we weren't awake enough to eat as well.

I really would love to have a GOOD and proper explanation for why they do this. :confused3

Our last cruise on RCCL they never even took our passports away from us. We wondered if the girl had made a mistake, but we weren't complaining.

On another cruise with RCCL they took the passports but we were allowed to go to guest services at any time on the last evening and pick them up at our convenience. No getting up at the "crack of dark" as my husband calls it :rotfl2:

Yup Betsy, you can usually get off the ship anytime starting around 7:30 - 8 am. It all depends on how long it takes to clear the ship through customs.

We tend to agree with your DH about Palo. Why pay extra for a meal when there's perfectly good food in the dining room that you've already paid for. That's just us though, others obviously feel differently since Palo is usually booked up.

So, we are willing to eat at Palo if everyone else wants to but for us it is not really a necessity.

Kelly ~~ I've seen door signs while onboard but I've never had one myself. That's why I'm hoping our resident talent for that stuff, (Betsy/Dalpal) will design us one. I think it'd be cool for all of our threadkiller group to have the same door sign.

Yes the doors are metal, so they can be magnetic or I suppose one could just use tape. Probably magnetic would be better, less chance of leaving any lasting reminders on the doors that way.

A Dream is a wish your heart makes

I got teary eyed when the ship played that thru it's horn (not sure what they call it - if it has another name). It still amazes me how emotional leaving the port on the first day of the cruise was!

Is everybody on board for the red, white, and blue bracelets still?

Thanks for all the welcomes. I kinda feel like Norm on "Cheers" , where everybody knows your name!! :cool1:
I'll be traveling with my DH(43), DD(18),DS(9), DD(6), and DM-I-L(63). Oh, and I'm (34). We have a mine, yours, and ours kind of family. We booked the land and sea package so 3 days at WDW for us first. :Pinkbounc The only way I could convince DH to take the kids to WDW was to bribe him a cruise.
We're staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I'm excited as I have never been to WDW nor have my two youngest.
I'll have to check back with you guys and gals later as it is time to take the youngest to dance class.
Take Care everyone,

Kelly,
Hi...I THINK we go through W.VA. and cut over, by Columbia NC...My DH like to avoid the Balt./Wash. area...
I have to admit Im not even sure that is right...He does most of the driving...I HATE long distance driving so Im only good for a couple of Hrs. at a time...I like to wait until we get to I-95...That way I KNOW there are no exits to worry about for a very long time.... :teeth:

If he would fly, I would be on that plane in a sec.! :rotfl:

Wendy,
:wave2:
We will be going to WDW first also...Im thinking four days....But it depends on where we can get...My DH is not a fan of AKL.(too far from everything)..So Im thinking either PC..The AS are OK, but I have been there befor and I like to try new places when I can.....or a Mod...Im tired of staying at the PO/FQ...So if I can help it, it wont be there....I guess we will try for CB...We havent ever been there....The Poly is my favorite...but with the cost of the cruise I KNOW we wont be staying there....
Maybe we can meet up somewhere for drinks or something befor the cruise! ;)

02-02-2006, 11:05 AM
I think I'm all caught up on all the posts. I found the door magnets interesting. What if each person just made their own with a few guidelines like key words or themes or something. That way no ONE person would get stuck with the work and I think you get to know people through their own creative ideas and takes on things. Just a thought, I know I often get stuck doing things for my family members all the time. I scrapbook some and because I'm stay at home mom I wonder if they think I have nothing better to do. Now I've got this great vacation to plan and shop for...yeah! :banana: I think it got up to 42 degrees yesturday. It has been an unusually warm winter here, I'm not complaining!
I just checked out the navigators at this site. They seem to be standard for cruises, which is good. Gives me an opportunity to pick and choose my priorities ahead of time. I realize ours will vary some. but still a wonderful resource. :teacher: Any first time cruisers should definatley check those out.
Many of you have discussed eating at Palo's while on board. We will not be doing that this time. Our first Disney cruise, so we want to enjoy all the other places. We actually enjoy eating in the main dining rooms for most meals. Buffet is not out style. DH and I like being waited on hand and foot. We sailed RCCL Brilliance of the Seas May 2004 for 10 nts and were sooooo spoiled. I'm hoping the service on Disney is enough to keep my hubby happy. The rumor of the transatlantic is enticing. We've discussed doing a Med. cruise and if it could be Disney...that would be perfect!! :cheer2:
DH isn't crazy about flying but the thought of spending 3 days in a car with 4 adults and 2 kids....well, he'll just have to have a drink or two to settle him on the plane.
Dalpal,
would love to meet for a drink. My intentions for Disney Word is Animal KIngdom, of course, and Magic Kingdom. I really want to enjoy the hotel as well. We chose it because it is a bit away from everything, Living in Maine, we like it somewhat quiet and with wildlfe all around!!! Should be somewhat like home????
Wendy

02-02-2006, 11:25 AM
Besty... We will be leaving three hrs. behind u, if u guys change your mind & decide to stop in Jacksonville (it's less than an hour from Ga state line) let me know! Port C is @ a 3 hr. drive from Jacksonville! :woohoo:

Wendy... Good idea on the sign! Besty will be happy to hear that I have been working on my own! It does take some time! I clicked on yahoo images and typed different Disney characters, it's neat what came up!

And to all.... We're getting closer to the 10 month countdown :yay:

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it! (Heard that song on the way to work this a.m., can't get the Pointer Sisters outta my head) Thought about the cruise!!!! :rockband:

I hope I'm not scaring anyone away :scared:

Hi everyone

I am so impressed that you are already working on the design of your door magnets. When I get round to doing one, it will have to include Captain Jack Sparrow and I'll adopt the 'Threadkillers Cruise' into it somewhere

Wendy, what deck are you on ? Most of us are around 6 or 7, I'm deck 6, midship, stateroom # 6060 and we're on the early dining seating - what have you booked ?

It's great that even though it is so far away, we're all so excited about it

See ya

Okay, I dug out the confirmation papers. I have them hidden as this trip is THE christmas present for our kids this year. We're not telling them until at least Nov. (the 18 yr/o already knows, she will be at college so I had to make sure the dates were ok.) Anyway, we are on deck 8 cabin 8050, and M-I-L and 18 yr/o are across the hall. I figure if you guys turn up the music loud enough I should be able to enjoy it too! :dancer:
We have requested early seating, I was tempted to change thinking it might be less hectic later but my children are usually in bed at 8 or 8:30 at the latest so eating at that time?!!! Not really an option. I'm looking forward to trying the pizzaria and plutos dog house, The kids will appreciate it. :)
Does anyone have any info on laundry or more specifically pressing sevices? Packing for the trip, unpacking at WDW, repacking and then unpacking on the ship.....wrinkle heaven!!

Happy 13th Birthday Kelly's Son , Hope You Have a Great Day !!


Mandy & Family xx

I'm going to steal Mandy's graphics and also send my best happy birthday wishes to your son. A teenager :yay: , have fun :smooth:

Kelly, I'm doing just fine. The weathers been pretty nice lately, I've been enjoying that. I live in Ontario, Canada about one hour from Detroit Michigan. We had lots of snow in mid December but it all melted after a few weeks and we've had basically none that lasted longer than 24 hours since then. I love this kind of winter :woohoo:

I've been busy planning our next Florida vacation. We are leaving on April 22 and returning on May 1. We probably won't be doing any parks but will maybe check out the waterparks and tour some resorts, that kind of thing. Just me and my husband. We are going down to spend half of the time at a remote control airplane show in Lakeland Florida with a few days before being spent in the Disney/Orlando area. So I've been looking for flights, checking room prices that that kind of thing.

Anybody got any ideas of different things to do in that area?

I've also been busy appliance shopping since we are in the market for a few new appliances. I think I've almost got that straightened out, at last :rolleyes:

It does look very cool. They have these heated tiled cement loungers that just feel heavenly, even through all of my clothes :teeth: There are different showers and saunas with different scents. The peaceful sound of fountains running. Aw, maybe I just will find that time to go this cruise. I've always wanted to.

Yes there is a cost involved.. I seem to remember that it was $15.00 a day for unlimited amount of time during that day or there was a package deal for the whole cruise time. You can come and go as you please during that day.

We went in for a look during the first afternoon onboard before the spa was open for guest use. We also looked in there on our sea day when we took my parents to the exercise room so they could look down into the bridge area. There was absolutely no one in the Rainforest Room at that time.

I started collecting Disney themed items to send a package to each of my clhildren on the ship. I read in another thread that if you send it early, it'll be waiting in your cabin when you get there. (in some cases, after dinner) I just thought a new beach towel and bathing suit would be cute, maybe a few of their fav snacks, like peanut butter crackers and m&m's. Anyone else sending stuff ahead?

I wouldn't dress up either but I do enjoy going out to the nightclubs in the evenings. I'm not a drinker nor a dancer but I enjoy watching everyone else and listening to the music.

There are also other surprise things that go on in the nightclubs that are a lot of fun :smooth:

I went back thru the thread to get the address in case anyone was interested. It's good for things that you might be willing to leave behind or will use up. Again, I'm gonna include a few "special" items for the kids to surprise them.

IDS Warehouse/Disney Cruise Line
9001 Marlin Street
Cape Canaveral, FL 32920


lower left corner include the following information:
Name (use the registered name)
stateroom #
sailing date
vessel name
box # (i.e. 1 of 2 or 3 of 3 etc)


The post office sells disney themed boxes...but the people commenting they sent packages successfully raved about fed ex

I'll try to check on this today and let you all know for sure when I find out.
I hope they haven't discontinued this, besides little treasures for the kids, I was going to send out my son's over the counter, disposable, medical supplies. I didn't want an extra carryon size bag to deal with. I was just gonna pack enough in his regular carryon to get us to the ship. :guilty:
Anyway, I'll see what I can find out.

QueenTriton,

I see all these fine people have welcomed you to our 01/07/07 cruise thread!
Im so glad you found us!... :welcome:

We all seem to be taking up the rooms on deck 6, 7, and 8.....are you joining us on one of those decks?....or are we adding a deck to the fun?....If we get enough people, the whole ship will be one big DIS board party :woohoo:
We have already agreed to let the Capt. and crew have there space on the ship...because I just dont know how to steer a ship that size and SOMEONE has to bring us our drinks and entertain us :teeth:

This cruise is going to be so fun...
Cant wait to meet all of you in person!.....

and I really want to see that rainforest area in the spa too....I normally dont care about the spa or gym...but Ive been using a treadmill and I will probably want to continue on the cruise....

Has anyone seen the new Bambi?....My DGKs want me to buy it...but I dont normally get the IIs...but if its good I might... ;)

Well have a good day all.... :wave2:

I don't know about keeping it as a present.

To me half of the fun is in the anticipation of the event.

Wendy, I have never done a character meal before so I can't help you there.

I know on the ships there are lots of opportunities to see the characters. I've been sitting out on Dec 4 before and had them just stroll casually by. Once it was Mickey and Minnie and another time I had Peter Pan go strolling by. :cool1:

We LOVE character breakfasts and I would totally recommend Chef Mickey's, it's great for boys and girls, and there are loads of characters like Minnie, Mickey, Pluto, Goofy, Chip & Dale. I guess it depends on what kind of food you like. At Chef Mickeys it is a buffet and you just go up and help yourself and the characters come around to your table. If your family are into Pooh and Friends, then the buffet at the Crystal Palace is pretty much the same but with Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet coming round. When we go back I want to go to breakfast with Lilo & Stitch for my brithday, but we've never been to the Polynesian so I can't comment on that.

I was searched a topic and came across the "threadkillers" thread. I'm gonna post a reply here, I'm a little shy! :angel:
Anyway, if you decide to change the countertop, my husband would also agree that solid surface is nice but he reccommends the faux stuff. DH has worked in the family's building supply store for 20+ years and took over the business 3 yrs ago. He often gets asked for his opinions on redoing kitchens. Many times people are willing to pay big $$'s for Corian countertop but cut corners by ordering cheaper cabinets...he says if anything, do it the other way around, the good cabinets with cheaper countertop. (but not too cheap)
The faux granite like ones will probably last until your ready to change the colors in your kitchen again. Many people get tired of the color of their kitchen w/in 10 years and changing the countertop and paint is an easy way to update. And a nice wood REAL wood cabinet can work for anyones taste.

We will be breaking ground for our new house next year. We just bought our neighbors lot so now we have 2 wells and eptics, but neither of which is where our new house will be....we have 50 acres total. I put the new house on hold so we could go on this vacation, also our oldest will start college in the fall.(nursing)
I'll be intersted to find out how things go with your kitchen.
Oh, we have real granite in the bathroom..the sink vanity, and when it gets wet, it stains, it eventually dries up and goes away, but it doesn't just wipe away, something else to think about.
Good Luck

Hey Wendy, don't be shy about posting on the threadkillers thread. We'd be glad to have you come over and stay with us. We're pretty much a friendly bunch :teeth: Just jump right in and post.

Betsy and I will be there to help you along :smooth:

So did you see the pictures of my kitchen when you were on there? I'm willing to listen to any and all suggestions that anybody has to offer. Thanks for your tips (and of course you're husbands help too)

I have 2 kids in college right now. The oldest one, my son Alex has completed his nursing program and is now finishing up his paramedic program. He's going to be well set for the future, at least that's what we're hoping. ::yes::

We will most likely to flying down for this cruise too. It takes us 2 days to drive down. We are in Ontario just about one hour from the Detroit/Windsor border. The total driving time is about 19 hours without any stops at all, but we do it with one overnight stay. We are too old to travel that distance without a rest in the middle ;)

We always fly out of Detroit, Michigan. For our trip this April we are flying AirTran. I've never flown them before but I sent the kids home on AirTran from Orlando in January and they said it was okay. We drove down that time and the kids needed to be back in time for college starting up in January and the rest of us went on a Disney Cruise :woohoo:

Good luck with your flight search.

She's had fun on the teen boards with some of the games they play there. We haven't told the younger kids about the trip yet as it's too far away to tempt them with it. We had to tell her due to her classes and all. She seems to be quite excited and if she thinks it'll be fun, I know the younger ones will be on :cloud9: !!!

I forgot my dd's valentines party at preschool was today so at 5:30 this morning I was up helping her make valentines and molding chocolate hearts for her classmates. I was good and only sampled one. (and that one was deformed)

Okay, I've got kind of a silly question, Im afraid of how silly I might look if I don't ask it. I understand the rotational dining thing for dinner in the evening., but what about breakfast and lunch. Just go wherever you want for those meals? anybody got any favorites for breakfast? Everyone in my family is big on breakfast foods except me. I really like fruit and a croissant or scone, but again, everyone else loves everything about breakfast.

I think the kids are starting to suspect something, I spend too much time checking out the stuff at WDW and also the cruiseline. They're always commenting on something they see on my computer screen...I'm getting really good at acting stupid about it though!I guess that just comes naturally to some of us. :confused3

I know that you can go to some of the restaurants for a sit down breakfast, but we always go to the Beach Blanket Buffet for both breakfast and lunch, where you can help yourself to hot and cold food. I think that one of the restaurants is open for lunch too, but we've never used them

We did the same thing as Mandy except we ate one morning at Parrot Cay, it was nice for a change. We were seated next to a chef who made delicious omlets right there. He put on a pretty neat show flipping the pan and food around! :thumbsup2

Beach Blanket Buffet was buffet style and great when u r in a hurry! There is a great variety for breakfast (cereals, fruits, oatmeal, eggs, sausages, etc) in each place!

We ate lunch at Castaway Cay's Cookies and at the Blue Lagoon Beach for the Nassau excursion. One thing I can't complain about is the food we ate :p

We tend to eat our breakfasts and lunches at Beach Blanket Buffet. There usually is good food there.

The breakfast seems to be the same every morning but there is a nice variety and you can get custom made omelets if you want. I also read that someone asked at the omelet station for plain fried eggs and was accommodated with that too. We did eat in the dining room one morning on our last cruise just to see the difference. It was okay too.

The lunch in the buffet changes in "theme" on a daily basis, so the food is different each day.

Usually if you look outside the restaurant or the BBB there is a menu posted for the meal that is being served at that time. If you don't like the posted menu in one, try looking at the other.

If you don't like either then I guess you get Pizza, or chicken fingers, or chicken burgers, or bratwursts or ice cream, or whatever else is available on deck......... OR room service ;)

Thanks Kelly, that has just reminded me that I must renew my passport this year. So far the only thing that I have done for the cruise is buy myself a nice black dress and a couple of dresses for the girls.

At the weekend we had the confirmation of the cruise sent from DCL, and in the letter was a postcard from Mickey & Minnie saying that they were looking forward to seeing us - I thought it was a lovely touch, considering they were reminding me of how much I owed :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

I'm glad that you are having a beautiful day there. Yesterday was like that here. Nice and warm , not really sunny but an all around nice day.

Today is not your typical Canadian winter day either :smooth: I'm not complaining though because I will take this weather over blizzards anyday. Actually where I am we don't tend to have a really severe winter. We get snow, yes and sometimes quite a lot of snow but it usually is here one day and gone in a day or 2. We also can get very cold temperatures at times.

Enjoy your dinner and your conversation.

I will be going to my famous dance class tonight (NOT the lap dance class either ;) ). Just tap class tonight, no hip hop because the hip hop teacher left today to go to Florida :teeth:

:( Sorry to here you will not be joining us. I haven't discussed our dates with my kids teachers yet. They attend public school and many of the teachers take vacations during the school year when their spouses place of work has shutdowns for vacations. Anyway,...you'll be missed from this group but I wish you well and hope whenever you get to go that the seas are calm and weather is perfect.

Peter... hope somehow you guys can get back onboard with us! So sorry :worried:

Wendy.. glad u got that! i felt like a scolded child! i'm sure it wasn't met that way :)

Robin.. how was your lap dance lessons, between the lap dance and Mandy's "G", things have been getting interesting here :lmao: :lmao:

I'm sure this will excite you guys, but, we all picked out our matching hawaiian clothes last nite at the family get-together. Just another thing associated with the cruise to get me bouncing off the walls! :hyper:

Kelly, my TAP dancing class was great.

It's so funny though because there are different skill levels in my class of adults. I happen to be very near to the bottom ;)

Our teacher will show us some steps and then he will do them at the actual speed to fit the music (super sonic speeds) and most of us will just stand there and stare at him with our chins on the floor saying...... yeah........ RIGHT :rotfl2:

Oh well, we have a good laugh trying at least :dancer:

Wendy, it was great to see you over on the threadkiller thread. Thanks for coming over, you will find that we are a very friendly group and we always have room for more.

FRIDAY NIGHT? Home with the kids, once in a while we go out to eat at some chain restaurant we love. (99, chili's, texas roadhouse, etc) :rainbow:

FAV MUSIC? a year ago I would have said classic rock but I love all the new stuff from Creed, Mudvayne, etc. Still a kid at heart I guess...but I can listen to just about anything, even country for a little while. :rockband:

FAV SPORT? Nascar, High School basketball on TV, (I'd enjoy going to game too, but DH wouldn't, and the kids wouldn't sit still that long) I guess I have to say Martial arts too. Not to watch, but I enjoy the classes I'm in. I also enjoy playing volleyball with all the ladies on Mon nights. One is about 65 and she's really good, they are all really nice.

FAV COLOR? any shade of green, especially the new apple green, it's my new black. And I love pink with it, I don't usually do pink. :thumbsup2

#? 6, it always has been for some reason I don't even remember anymore.

COKE OR PEPSI? Coke, but only because I'm a sprite drinker. :drinking1

JOB? Stay at home mom...and proud of it. When the youngest goes to school :sad: I'll work part-time at DH's building supply store. It's a half block from the kids school.

LOOKING FORWARD TO? :goodvibes Graduation, I'm so excited for Kayla. College, I wish I would have gone to college and lived on campus. I'll be living through Kayla for the next 4 yrs!! And of course the anticiaption of the :sail: cruise is just about making me sick!! :sick:

FAV ACTOR? I enjoy Adam Sandler also, because I enjoy the movies he choses to do. I also enjoy Jonny Depp. I loooooved him in Edward Scissorhands. I also love Patrick Swazey...nothing could ever compare to him in Dirty Dancing...he can be my teacher anytime! :worship:

:idea: good questions!

Yikes, I'm way behind on the question and answer stuff :rotfl2:

Friday night at home? ~~ usually spent DISing or reading a book, or doing word puzzles, rarely watch any television.

Favourite music ~~ Country. I can tolerate most anything for awhile, except for Opera and anything that has screaming in it :crazy2:

Favourite sport ~~ I'm not into sports but I do like my tap and hip-hop dance classes :dancer:

Favourite colour, number ~~ don't really have one

Job ~~ I still consider myself a stay at home mother, BUT I put in quite a few hours a week taking care of the accounting aspects of our business (custom metal machining), .... invoicing, paying bills, doing payroll, taking care of government forms etc. The hours I work is entirely dependant on how much work is on my desk :thumbsup2

Favourite day of the week ~~ well Saturday or Sunday because there is less running around to do on those days.

Coke or Pepsi ~~~ Diet Pepsi is my preferred poison but I will drink Diet Coke if necessary (such as on the Disney Cruise Ship)

Looking Forward to ~~ Vacations... we have a trip to Florida and a Royal Caribbean cruise BEFORE our Disney Cruise to look forward (just turning out to be a crazy vacation year) . Also looking forward to spending time with my ThreadKiller friends onboard the Disney Wonder :goodvibes

Actor ~~ don't have any favourites.
