February 1, 2013- 4 night Magic from Galveston
We just booked the 4 night from Galveston and it was suggested I start a new thread since this was orginally an 8 night itinerary.
We're going to visit family in Houston and decided as long as we were taking DD2 to see great-grandmom we may as well add a few days and take a cruise.
We'd love to do a meet and a FE.
You beat me to the thread!!! I just booked this cruise for us and four of our adult children. I have headed up several FE exchanges and attended several meets, so I will be glad to keep up with that and I hope we have several others join us. I had looked at the original thread and noticed there was only one that looked like they might also go on this itenerary.
We have been on the Wonder twice and the Fantasy this last May. Loved both of them and we are looking forward to the Magic, especially since we don't have to fly to Florida to get to it!!!
Look forward to chatting.
Another cruise meet thread for this cruise has been started and can be found at:

Our first Disney Cruise!
Hi everyone! Joining in for the Feb 1 Magic Cruise! My DH and I will be leaving our 4 kiddos home and doing this cruise by ourselves. But don't hate me for leaving the kids - we are all going on the Disney Dream in May. We live in Missouri and driving to Galveston is only 12 hours away. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! I do wonder - do adults cruising without kids participate in the FE exchange? I'm a big kid at heart, but I haven't been on a Disney Cruise before and am unsure about the FE if we don't have kids with us. Actually I can't imagine doing anything without kids - going to be so fun!!!! I'd love to hear anybody's recommendations for port excursions and activities in Cozumel.
I think each exchange we have been involved in on our three previous cruises have had almost as many cabins without kids as did with kids. It is just fun. Join us and see.
We were in Cozumel on our cruise in May and we did the Mayan ruins and highlights and will probably do it again so the kids can experience it. I have some friends that go there a lot that say they love the beaches.
As I said some of our kids will be with us but the youngest is 26 so everyone in our party is adult.
Glad you are joining us and can't wait to get to know everyone.
I got it straight now. Your thread has been added to the list :)
Kathy - yes ma'am, great answer!:cool1: I'm starting on my FE and door magnets now!!
My sister and brother-in-law will also be joining us and leaving their children at home with Grandparents as well! This will be a surprise to my hubby who has always wanted to go on an adult only (non-business) vacation together.
I appreciate your feedback on the excursions! I will check into the Mayan ruins, I had heard a lot about that one as well. I'm narrowing it down to Mayan ruins, a beach club for a day, or Xcaret.
After 2013 I will have been on 2 of the 4 Disney ships. Halfway to marking that one off my bucket list! :beach: Of course more Disney items just keep magically appearing on my bucket list.....
OK, I started a roll-call in the post I had extra near the top.
We can add as much or as little as you want.
Right now I just have the names, but we can add stateroom #'s, dining info etc.
Hope y'all have had a good week. The kids and I just got back from a week at WDW celebrating their birthdays. Very humid, but overall very good weather. Crowds were not too bad. We did everything we wanted to do, plus got a little rest in there also.
After the cruise, DH and I will have been on 3 of the ships. Whenever we get to go on the Dream will give us our Grand Slam, and that will probably be a while before we go on it. We will be on the Wonder again in September of 2013, so on one of these cruises I will probably plan on a Dream cruise. Now to get to planning for the cruise. Only four months. :thumbsup2
Hi everyone. We are booked on this cruise as well. My son will celebrate his 13th birthday on the ship. We are doing the Fantacy in December, but when I saw the prices for this one, I could not pass it up. I've talked some frineds in to going with us, and I think it will be a blast. I love that Disney is in Galveston, since we are just a 4 hour drive away. I'm so excited about this trip!
I've never participated in a FE. I have only been on two cruises before (one DCL and one Carnival). CAn someone explain how it works.. I get the general idea, guests exchange gifts in the pockets of the extenders. But whee do you get a fish extender, what types of gifts do you put in, how did this come about? As you can tell, I'm a newbie... but I'm all about Disney and love DCL.
The FE is a lot of fun. If you want to join, you just let me know and I will add your name to the list. Some people call it a ship version of a Secret Santa, although most of us are not secret. There is a FE thread which gives a sew and no-sew version to make your own extender or I have heard they can be found on e-bay and etsy. I have always done the no-sew version and been very pleased.
The gifts can be whatever fits your budget. I have received magnets, keychains, small bags of candy, small decorated notebooks, book markers. There are also threads that show what others have made and received. I have them somewhere, I will try to find them and list them for easy reference. Some girl started this years ago and it has grown into what it is today.
I am very interested in the FE. I guess it's time to get crafty and make one.
Yeah we just booked for Feb 1st Magic for me and DH. Just us adults cannot wait:banana: We are wanting to join the FE this cruise also. We just got off the Magic on Oct 20th and it was MAGICAL:cheer2: It was me, DH and DS, so this time we are going alone!! :banana: I cannot wait because I about cried when we had to leave last week:(
