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 and i never thought i would get my husband on a cruise as he has a serious fear of open water But he still is willing to do this for me 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!

Hello - We are going on this cruise too. Just me and my other half. My daughter is in college and won't be joining us (she doesn't want to skip school YAY). Another family is traveling with us. They are so far a group of 4 but could change to 5 by sail time. They have an 18 year old son and an 11 year old daughter.

We are so excited that Disney decided to sail out of TX. Only an hour from us!! Most of us in our group have never cruised before, Disney or otherwise.

Our group would be interested in a FE exchange if there becomes one.

I am wondering the same thing? Where is everyone? We have two rooms with my parents in one and my DH, DD, and DS in another. Plus some friends of ours may be booking this week so that will be a few more people. Quite cruise group so far.

Is our cruise empty? I have never done a Disney cruise before and therefore don't really know how to start an FE group. Any takers??? Can anyone help???

What most meets do is make a google page that we all can type on and save. I have never made a google page but have wanted to learn since it will be useful for signing up for things with my kids school too, I can try to figure it out but am really behind with life right now and realistically probably wouldnt be able to even attempt it til next week. We could always start with just replying to this meet if you are interested
Fish extender participants interested:

Hi yes this cruise must be almost empty, they opened up TA rates at 10:00 ET today but I learned about it at my NACTA meeting last night from our Disney Rep

Since I am in California with a 3 hour time difference, I was up before 7:00 my time and ready to book.

Right now it's just me in my cabin, but hoping to add to it before sailing. Let's just say that I couldn't pass up the deal (the pre-paid gratuities and taxes were almost as much as the cruise fare.) So I will dare to say that quite a few TAs will now be on this sailing at the Appreciation Prices.

Add in the fact that I have a Southwest $300.00 voucher for giving up my seat on a previous flight and the RT flight is $350.20, I am in.

As I said I am from Sacramento Ca and my name is Georganna. Glad to be able to join you, guess I will go back and catch up on the thread now.

I am willing to participate in the Fish Extender if we have one.

Glad to have you sail with us Georganna. That sort of stinks for us who booked way in advance and paid full price, there seems to be all sorts of specials out there now for these cruises out of Galveston. Well I don't care if our FE exchange is small as long as we have one, my kids will love it.

Interested in joining!

We just booked our cruise this past week! This ia our second cruise on the disney magic, but the first of ever hearing about fish extenders but we would love to join. We are a party of 6- 2 cabins- one with 3 lovely ladies and one with 3 adventureous men/boys. Ages for 2 kids are dd age 10 and ds age 9.
Does everyone buy fe pockets and gifts or make their own?
We were lucky enough to still get 2 oceanviews with verandahs!!!

Booking

Hi. My husband and I are looking at booking this cruise. We are in Houston and are excited to be sailing out of Galveston. I will let everyone know if our schedule works out and we book. Hope to see everyone soon. Sherry
