June 17 Wonder to Alaska
 
Hello everyone! I'm new to the DIS boards, but not to DCL. This will be my family's third cruise and I'm really looking forward to meeting up with some other people on board. :)
Traveling on this trip will be DH, myself, Evelyn (8), and Gavin (3).
:)

Have a great cruise!

Hi Kandie

We are going to be on this cruise as well :)

It's just me and my DH, we are so looking forward to it!

It's our third cruise as well (all Disney)

Good to have someone to count down the days with :)

Hi Lisa!
Nice to meet you :flower3:

Roll on June 2013 :thumbsup2

Hi Ladies! I'm so excited to meet some people to count down the days with. :cheer2:
My room steward told me about DIS boards, and I can't believe that I haven't found this place before...it's amazing!

Where have your last cruises been? Our first Disney cruise (and first cruise EVER) was October 2011 to the Mexican Riviera and we just got back a couple weeks ago from our California Coast cruise. pirate:

Both of our cruises have been out of the Port of LA, which is only about 30 minutes from my house. It made for a really easy and stress-free vacation, especially with a baby. Our next cruise is going to be the first time I've had to fly into town before we ship off...and I'm a little nervous. :scared:

Any tips would be super appreciated! :grouphug:

Blessings,
Kandie

Hi Kandie

We have done a three day on the Dream (Nassau and Castaway Cay) just to see if we liked cruising - we did !!

Whilst on board we re-booked a 7 night Western of the Fantasy - wow what a ship :woohoo:

This will be our third cruise and it's obviously very different to our other two

We've never been to Canada so we are really excited to see Vancouver and as soon as I back from my next trip (San Fran & Disneyland next week :cool1:) I am going to start some serious planning :hyper:

Do you think you will do many excursions? - there are so many that sound great

Our first Disney Cruise
 
This will be our first Disney Cruise. There will be Myself, DH and DD who will be 11 at the time of the cruise. We are looking forward to it.:)

Welcome aboard :goodvibes
You are going to love cruising with Disney

MommyB 11-02-2012 04:51 PM

We are looking forward to it. DD is excited because she will be able to find kids her own age. We did a Norwegian to Hawaii with family and she did not like the kids club that they had. Although she and my nephew were the only ones in the family to meet the Captain.

Joining as well! I'm Erica, I'll be sailing with a big crew. DH is Lionel, DD Isabelle will be 3 1/2 when we sail. We are going with two other couples with a toddler each (one is Izzy's best pal), plus my parents. Should be a hoot!

I started a PTR here - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2991753 - like many on the DIS I am a crazy type A planner so I need somewhere to "get out the crazy" so my friends and family won't have me committed. ;)

We've done several cruises with Disney, pretty much evey year since 2005. This will be Lionel's 10th, my 9th (once I was too pregnant to sail and a friend of ours was getting married....so my husband LEFT ME AT HOME to go on a cruise. Isn't that awful? lol) and Isabelle's 4th. We live in Central Florida so we usually sail from Port Canaveral, but we did do Alaska from Vancouver with DCL in 2011.

Can't wait!

Feel free to top by the PTR, or ask anything you want since I've done the itenerary before. I can't answer everything, but I will do my best!

Yay, you're here :goodvibes
I am sure I will have a million questions for you seeing as you have done this itinerary before :thumbsup2

Alaska here we come!
 
Hello! We are super excited to explore Alaska via a Disney cruise! This will be our second Disney cruise; our first was in January 2012 via the Dream on a 4 night Bahama cruise. My husband I have 3 kids; 2 boys ages 13 and 10 and 1 girl who is 5. We will also be traveling with my husband's mom and her husband, who we love traveling with! We have three inside cabins booked for our group, which took some convincing for me. However, I would much rather do it this coming year than save another year for a room with a verandah.

We are coming from Iowa and will be flying from Kansas City to Seattle, then probably renting a minivan to take into Vancouver. We don't have hotel arrangements yet for Vancouver or Seattle.

We will not be doing a fish extender exchange this time. The one we did on our last cruise was pretty lame and so we'll skip it this time. I'm not sure if we'll participate in a meet, but we are interested in chatting on here before the trip. There are so many decisions to make before the time! Excursions, hotels before and after, etc. So much planning!!! It's fun, but I must admit, it does kind of stress me out!

So happy to see everyone on here and hope to chat with everyone soon about planning!

Hi Kelly :goodvibes

Great to have you on-board!

I spent the weekend having a look at some of the excursions that are available - wow, there's a lot!

I think I've narrowed it down to about 20!

How long is this cruise !?! :rotfl:

zweihund 11-12-2012 09:00 PM

I spent weeks scouring the excursions....my husband was like, "what are you doing? We've done this before!" For the record, it's still just as overwhelming the second time, if not more so! :rotfl2:

I'm working on a "picking the excursions" update for the TR, I'll let you know when it's up. Not that it will help anyone else decide, but at least you'll know you're not alone :thumbsup2
