January 4, 2014 Fantasy, Trust, and Pixie Dust!
 
Hello everyone!!!


I just booked this cruise for me and my boyfriend. It will be my 8th cruise, but first with Disney, and since I am such a Disney fan I know that it is truly my dream come true. This 13 month wait is going to be long but hopefully we will keep each other company!!! Can't wait to get the planning process underway. :cool1:

EDIT: January, 31: Here is the link to the facebook group as well:

Count us in! :cool1:
My DH and I are traveling with DD (23) and DGS (2).
We're in Cat. 8C connecting.

How exciting, it looks like you have sailed DCL before, you will be a good source of information!!! I am so excited, the bf is holding back a little bit of his enthusias, :-) But I know he will love it. We will both be 25 by the time the cruise comes around. It is a bit of a celebration cruise, as I will just be graduating from grad school a month before we sail! I am already trying to think about excursions etc. I would love to extend the trip a little and add a stay at WDW, since I have never been, but that decision will have to be made much later. I am looking forward to all of the planning (what I do best) I know I will be spending a lot of time on these boards.

Count us in! This will be the 2nd cruise for my wife and I. We sailed earlier this year on the Wonder to Alaska, and had the time of our lives. I thought everything was great, and am excited to see how much more fantastic the Fantasy is, since it's the top of the line. This cruise has added sentimental value for me, because January 4, 2014 is my 40th birthday, and there is no place I'd rather spend it than on a DCL ship.

Once we get some more peeps on this voyage, we can start talking Fish Extenders!

Hello everyone! I'm Kathy, wife of Pinocchio's #1 Fan, and I'm gonna volunteer my services to set up the Fish Exchange for our cruise. I figure since I've been on Disney cruise, I'm an expert now, right?

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone in the next 13 months, and having others to share the excitement as the cruise draws closer.

I am so there!
 
:woohoo: I booked yesterday, been waiting for a year! Celebrating my HUGE 60th with my guy friend. T'will be my 5th or 6th DCL cruise. (trying to get on one this winter with my DD.

DizzylandDeb 12-07-2012 08:04 AM

:yay: :welcome:

Wow! Quite a group we've got started!
This will be my 5th Disney sailing and my DH's 3rd. I was fortunate enough to have sailed twice on the Fantasy in 2012 (both Eastern). Am looking forward to going the other direction this cruise :boat:

Disneylandfanatic 12-07-2012 11:07 AM

WOW, so glad we already have an active board! I will be happy to join in on the FE festivities...I have some idea of how it works, but still not 100% sure. I have 13 months to plan what I am going to give though so that is GOOD. I love being crafty

Really looking forward to experiencing DCL. We did an Eastern this year, so I too am excited about the Western itinerary, just for something different. I am going to have to set up my watchdog acct to find me flights for this trip when the time comes....getting cheap arifare from SFO can be tricky sometimes, especially around the holidays.

Let the waiting begin. popcorn::

Friends whom we have sailed with have found some good deals on Virgin from SFO to MCO. They've always been able to fly to Orlando (way) cheaper than we can from our location in MT! :rolleyes: It's scary expensive from here :sad2:

Disneylandfanatic 12-07-2012 12:21 PM

Yes, the advantage to living near a popular travel city is good airfare, compared to other places! Just have to find the right deal. Last trip we went around the same time and were able to get RT flights from SFO to FLL for 300 a piece, not too shabby...would love to score a deal like that for this one! Never flown into MCO before, so not sure if they are more or less pricey than FLL. Knowing us we will fly in one or two days before, stay near the port and then if we do end up deciding to do WDW it will be after the cruise (have to be home for the new year, plus it will be cheaper after the cruise and further away from the holiday). Is it a little too early to have this planned???? Typically when I have a cruise booked, it is constantly on my mind and I am always planning!

IrishCowboy 12-07-2012 05:27 PM

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

Have a great cruise!

Disneylandfanatic 12-07-2012 05:33 PM

Thanks irishcowboy.

Count us in! It will be me (the mom) and my DS who will be 6, almost 7 (turns 7 at the end of Jan) on this trip. He will still be on winter break. I booked an 11C stateroom. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. We did the 2 week Hawaii cruise on the Wonder in October and a 7 day also on the Wonder to the Mexican Riviera in April. This will be our first cruise out of PC and on a newer ship. I'm excited!

Disneylandfanatic 12-08-2012 05:53 PM

Welcome!

We are also in an 11C so we are most likely neighbors! :-) hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday... It's Christmas decorating day at my house!
