Hi castlegazer. My family is supposed to be joining you on this cruise as well. We have a daughter who will be 6 at cruise time and we are expecting another little girl sometime this year by adoption. Not sure yet how old she will be. We have cruised with Disney once before and LOVED it. We are also having our best friends and my husband's parents come along on this trip. They are first timers. We are still in the process of getting everyone on the same page and getting everyone booked but hopefully it won't be long before it's all complete. We had booked when we were on our cruise last year but will transfer the date we had to the April 18th date. The parents and friends haven't booked at all yet. Sooo, I'll keep you informed! Thanks so much for starting a thread! I look forward to getting to know you and whoever else joins this thread. Kristi

WELCOME

I have moved my cruise date, um, let me think, oh about, four times now. Is this your April vacation in Penn? That is why this is our new cruise date. I just gave up a Halloween double dip cruise at the end of this year for this one because of school vacation and fear of death from evil eyes of the school administrators. IT'S FIRST GRADE!!!!! But alas, It's fine, we were not ready to go at the end of this year anyways so this works great.

We have done the Eastern route three times now on different lines including Disney. The Western will be a fun change!

Oh, I am a truly terrible choice for a thread administrator - I just felt pulled by the terrible gap, so please do not feel because I started this that I am in any way head This is anyone's and everyone's thread! I am an infrequent DIS visitor lately but I will pop in as much as I can.
Again, welcome!

The cruise we booked was an October 2008 cruise. It fell on our anniversary (Oct 3rd). We did the Eastern and loved it. My husband feels that we should go somewhere different every time we go on vacation. Never do the same thing twice he says. However, just having him on another Disney cruise is basically the same so I guess I win. HEEE HEEE As for the change, both my father-in-law and I deal with tax returns thus needing the trip to happen after tax season. And, it also made sense with school. It's hard to believe that 1st grade is just around the corner. Ugh. Anyway, as for you being the "head" I promise not to think that way. I just was clueless as to how to even get a thread started and thus am very impressed you took the initiative. It meant I didn't have to. When some more people hook up we'll have to make up a name for our cruise. Not sure if you did that for your other Disney cruises but I have to say that we had a blast deciding on a name for our cruise. What a hoot. We had a name, a logo, we played a tag game onboard and we all took the time to meet and get pictures done together. It was wonderful and my family felt like we were a part of a family even before we did the cruise itself. I do like to check back often to see if others logged onto this thread so if you don't get here I'll do my best to welcome people when they do. Take care and have a great week! Kristi

Hi,
I'm surprised to see so many people from MA are on this cruise. We also have boys ages 7 and 9 going 4/18/09 cruise. My parents are joining us also. Can't wait!

We've just booked on this cruise!

This will be our very first Disney cruise (and the kids' first cruise!)

The kids will be 12 years old and 8 years old.

WE CAN'T WAIT!

Hi all! I wanted to let you know that my family will not be joining you for this cruise after all. Our adoption is taking alot longer than we had hoped and it looks as if we would be pushing it to finish the adoption with enough time to get a passport, etc. for our second child. So, we have pushed our trip off until October of 09. It was a pleasure e-mailing with you if even for a short time. Have a blast on your cruise! Kristi

Kristi - you know now that what you have done is to leave the only people on this cruise as Massachusetts people, right?

You will be missed. As one who has been in may a meet thread and then changed my mind as to when we will be cruising, I say, HAVE FUN! I hope all goes well for you guys!

cctimmom - welcome! WELCOME TO THE DIS TOO!!!!!

Seriously, we have an overabundance of Mass people here! I have always been the only one from MA on the meet threads! This is either cool, or scary! Definitely lopsided. What fun!

This is our second cruise on DCL and will be our 4th overall cruise! You are going to love it! I cruised in 2006 on DCL so some of my font of information is a bit stale, but I can try and answer any questions. I also have not been on a Western yet, on any line, so this is a whole new set of learning potential. I love the planning stage so it's good that it's all new for me.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all you moms, Grandma's, aunt's and sisters! Hope you all have a great day.

My mother passed away in 2005 and I miss her dearly. She first took me to WDW back in 1975 and again in 76, 80 and 84. In 2000 she sailed with us on the Wonder for a 4 night cruise. When she passed away we ended up using some of her inheritance and became DVC members. I find great comfort knowing that because of her my family will enjoy Disney vacations for many years to come.

rala, I just realized that I have been reading about you on King Charming's and HyperMommy's trip report:

Quote:
Next up was a trip to deck 9 for cake. Michael and Marion invited us to share some wedding cake . They don't look too happy when they show up without cake. . Seems they have to sift through 400 wedding photos and pare it down to 80 keepers. .
Congratulations again!
