oct 20 2012 Magic can happen!
so I am writing to start a thread as i could not find one on the meets board. We are going on the Magic out of Galveston on Oct 20-27 2012. this is our first cruise, but not our first disney trip so are looking forward to seeing the differences and similarities to WDW. For me the magic is twofold, our youngest will turn 12 on the trip:banana: and i never thought i would get my husband on a cruise as he has a serious fear of open water :scared1: But he still is willing to do this for me:hug: Would love to hear from others who will be going , and would love to hear any suggestions that others will have . thanks patman 2011 wife.

is ANYBODY going in oct 2012???
ok, so i finally figured out how to post a link on here, so i posted it to the links thread, hopefully making it easier to find for others. I am sure that there are others here that a going the same time ; would love to get with others going at the same time. Also, is there a kids website where my girls will be able to touch base with others going on the same time? I am trying to get them to start getting excited about going. thanks for all help and have a great week!

I have added your thread to the cruise meet list :thumbsup2

Have a great cruise!

patman2011 08-12-2011 11:41 PM

Just checking in to see if anybody has signed up for this cruise yet? Maybe we are just a little to early.

patman2011 09-20-2011 10:37 PM

Somebody please come and cruise with me and my family:sad2:

My husband and I
are sailing with you. The cruise leaves on my 55th birthday so I guess it is a good reason to celebrate. I booked on my Wonder cruise two weeks ago but since he wasn't there (he had to work) he doesn't realize what a great birthday present he bought me ;) Anyhow John and I...although we have 3 kids and 5 grand kids they are all staying home. We live in Fort Worth so it is a 4 hour drive to the port. We have sailed out of Galveston numerous times and are looking forward to driving...not flying to a disney ship.:banana:

hello ma'am!!
we were starting to worry that we would be the only Dis'ers going on this cruise!!!:lmao: This will be our first cruise, dh does not like the water much, but with the cruise so close to us, we just couldnt pass it up!
We have gone to WDW 3 times and we normally like to plan and meet up with others here on the boards.
Could i ask you a ? We are driving up from SA and how far is parking from the docking? Is it similiar to the airport long range parking ? We are not sure.
Glad you are onboard! :cheer2:

It is very easy
to park in Galveston. We usually park at Lighthouse parking which is within walking distance from the pier but they also have shuttle service which is very quick. It is about 45.00 for the week I think if you sign up on line and pre-pay. I can confirm the cost in about a month because I am taking the Carnival "Magic" from Galveston on its inaugural voyage:banana:

Having sailed out of Galveston a number of times I find it very easy.

We are excited to go on the Magic again..We have sailed the Magic out of Port Canaveral and Barcelona before. We also have other family and friends going with us..(so far 6 cabins). And llachance, we have alot of family members sailing on the Carnival Magic on the same Inaugural voyage!!!

patman2011 11-21-2011 10:59 PM

I am so glad to meet you! This will be our first cruise, we are going with our DD 14 and our DD who will turn 12 on the cruise:wizard: I am so looking forward to doing this, we have gone to the World a couple of times, and the planning is kind of half the fun! I see that you all are in Tx as well, that is one of the reasons that we could afford this trip. will be following this thread to see who else is going!

Looking for a FE group to join
We are not first time cruisers but we are first time Disney cruisers. We have a son who will be traveling by cruise for the first time (he will be 8 at the time of the trip). I have heard of the fish hooks that are outside the cabin doors that are meant for FE groups. This is a group called Fish Extenders and serve like stockings. Everyday you give and recieve treats in them. Does anyone else know about this?
