So here we are. This is from Disney last year.http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/n...l/image075.jpg


About me: The biggest Disney fan of the family.

About DD: The biggest Dolphin lover! She has tons of Dolphin stuff. We are really excited because she will be doing the dolphin excursion in Nassau.



First thing I bought for the Cruise was her dress. I really didn't "buy it" though. It was given to her and I had to pay $18 for alterations. Not bad!
Here it is:

I am really having a hard time finding me a dress. I just can't find anything I like. So I might just have to wear a pant suit. I'm still looking around.

Howdy, neighbor!!:wave2:
I found my way over! I'm definitely subscribing to this!!:)
You and your DD are precious! She looks awesome in that dress!
I am so excited for you! I know that you are going to have such a wonderful time! But be prepared-it goes by soooo fast!
Which dolphin excursion is your DD doing? We did one on our 3-nighter and it was soooo much fun. Just wondering if it might be the same one that we did!
I bet you are dreading that drive. I know it's a long drive for us, and you have a couple more hours than we do! It will all be worth it when you cross that bridge and see the Wonder sitting there, just waiting for you!!:woohoo:

I have her booked for the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Encounter, but I'm hoping for an "upgrade" once we're there. I've read on here that if they have availability, that you can upgrade to the dolphin swim for an extra fee.

Yeah, I made that drive last year. I was ok on the way there, I guess because of the excitement. But on the way home, I just couldn't make it, so we stopped in Savannah & spent the night.

That's the same one that we did! It was a lot of fun, and we really enjoyed it. I bet the swim would be so awesome. I'll keep my fingers crossed that she'll be able to upgrade!:wizard:

So, I thought I'd share pics of my FE & gifts. I have to admit I am not crafty at all! So my FE was bought from ebay. And all of my gifts were bought at Party City. (Think birthday party gift bags) I wish I was crafty, but I'm just not. I have seen the thread of pictures of homemade FE gifts and I really wish I could do some of those crafts. But I hope my fellow Dis cruise mates will forgive me for my "not-so-crafty" gifts. The most crafty these are, is the red ribbon I curled with scissors. That's as crafty as I get!

Oh, I love that FE! VERY cute!:wizard:
And I think your bags look very crafty!:thumbsup2
Can you tell us what you have in them, or is it a surprise?

Thanks. I don't want to give the surprise away in case anyone from our cruise is lurking. But imagine if you're going to a Disney themed birthday party, what might me in the party loot bags. ;)

And I'm happy to say that I'm going with PLAN A. My DD's teacher emailed me with the make up dates for that test. :woohoo:



Next installment, while patiently (yeah right) waiting for our trip, some of our little road trip travels. We love to road trip!!:car:

UGAFan0829 02-23-2009 05:23 PM

I see! I don't blame ya for not wanting to ruin the surprise! Besides, I'll read all about what it was in the actual trip report, right?!;)

I'm glad that you got things figured out with DD's school...that has to make you feel a lot better!!! Will y'all be staying onsite since you're driving down early?

I'm all about the road trips, so bring it on!:moped: I can't imagine how excited you are to only be two weeks away!:dance3: Have you received all your travel docs yet?

As always, can't wait to read more!:thumbsup2

We're not staying onsite. I found a great deal on a hotel just 1 mile from Disney for $32 a night. Couldn't pass that up! And the "value" resort stay would be $140 a night!!! Where is the value in that?

Yeah, I've got all my docs and I've printed my online check in stuff. I'm still working on getting my addresses together to put into GPS.

Oh, yeah. One thing you all will notice is that most of our pics are
of each other and only a few together. Because we're always by ourselves, that's how our pics turn out without having someone to take our pic together!


That's why I LOVE Disney....Photopass!!!!

Hello neighbor! :goodvibes How exciting!! I've got 8 months until our next cruise! But the FE ideas have started! :banana:

anewmac 02-23-2009 08:55 PM

Do you know here I can find the homemade fe gift
you talked about. I would love to see that. I have seen the fe but not the gifts.
YOur DD is very pretty. I have one of those also. That is why my DH has to get a shot gun:rotfl2: But we are all good right now she is only 9 and still really like me (mom:banana: )
We are leaving tomorrow for our 1st disney cruise:cool1:
