Hey Lisa!

Thanks for starting our thread!! We'll be joining you, myself, husband, and 3 daughters, who will be 6, 9, 10 by then.

We were going to cruise in January '13 but when I saw the 'blue-light special' yesterday morning on this cruise, saving over 2k was too good to pass up!! LOL I am only kicking myself for not booking a dummy date when we were on the magic so we could have saved even more! AH!
This works out great for us since the kids should already have one or two days off school with Easter being the day after we get back. And we are definitely locked into this one since trying to change to anything else will cost an arm and a leg. LOL

VERY excited about the Eastern and going to San Juan. Our first cruise was this January, western on the Magic. We're ready to go the other way, and looking forward to the extra sea day.

I told my husband we have 17 months to make this our hot and skinny cruise. LOL

Looking forward to see who else is joining us!

FabFive, that is a great idea for a cruise group name! I transferred our first dummy date to the 6/29/13 Eastern, but the price tag for that one was over $6200 for a 9. I asked for the second dummy date to go to this cruise and was shocked that I could book a 5C for half of that amount. I actually asked for an 8A and the rep and I talked about how much less the price was for a spring break week. After asking him if they would cancel my reservation if they realized it was a mistake and he told me no, I told him to please book it right away before it changed. I swear, it's about time something goes our way. We are currently in a rental house while our home is rebuilt curtesy of Irene and things have been a bit stressful over the past couple months.

Our first cruise was an eastern and we have done 2 of those, a DD western, 2 westerns, the 2008 EBPC, a 3 night and Alaska. The Fantasy's MV is next on our list. It will be interesting to go back a year later and see what has changed.

LOL I know I asked my TA twice.. they won't do any funny business with my ressie, right??

Can't wait to hear your reports on the maiden voyage!
How was the Alaska cruise? Thinking of it for 2014, not sure on Disney or not yet.
I would LOVE a double dip, but only if it was a 7-day and I know those are rare, lucky you for getting on one!!

I know, right? LOL! Sounds like DD talking. My heart just skipped a beat when I saw another confirmation from DCL in my email. It has the same balance.

Alaska was simply the best cruise we have been on as far as the scenery. It was georgeous!!! People complained about the weather because it was cold -- but I kind of expected that based on being around glaciers and snow in July. We had many friends we cruised with back on the 2006 DD so that made it even more special. I hoped to cruise with some of them in 2013 but they can't get out of school in March and I simply couldn't let this deal get away.

I am still pumped up about booking this cruise. Since yesterday I keep hearing the song DD and her friend sing ...

The Mickey bus is coming and everybody's jumping.
The crazy colored yo yo a pumping on the disco
The bus is getting closer. No time to be a poser.
Mickey likes to party. Come on and move your body.

The name of the meet group has been changed to something everyone can enjoy. When a CM asked if we would be returning to the Fantasy, I told her we would be back on the 3/23/2012 cruise. She said how nice -- you are on the Maiden Voyage and will be on the last inaugural cruise. So we are now -- The Final Inaugural Cruise of the Disney Fantasy.

to the group!!! We are now at 50 cruisers. I am trying to chillout a bit after moving back home the week before Christmas. Now that we are finished rebuilding I can start thinking about other things -- like this cruise!!! The MV is in 88 days. This cruise is 51 weeks later.

My family of 4 will be on this cruise. Myself and Husband DS will be 8 DD will be 12. It is crazy how the prices of this cruise have sky rocketed in the past month. There are very few room categories still available for this cruise. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise, but have never been at spring break.

Welcome Bethann! We have never cruised spring break either. The good thing is on a boat it can't get any more crowded than full capacity and Disney usually sails full so it will be 'normal' crowds.

I asked about the blue light special also and this is the answer I received.

The blue light special is covered in the first couple pages of the thread. On opening day this cruise was priced at half of most summer cruises, even though it is over spring break which is usually a high price. Many of us jumped on this and during the course of the day watched the price go up as the cruise sold. Someone said that it reminded them of one of Kmart's blue light specials since after we booked some posted to the running pricing thread for opening day, which resulted in others booking the cruise.

Kim Z is me! I sent you a Private Message as well.

I just booked this cruise THIS MORNING! Funny thing, I am going on the Dream Cruise this Spring Break and I probably could have gotten a discount if I waited to book onboard. But cabins are ALMOST GONE on this sailing, so I didn't want to risk it! I used my DVC points and booked 2 Cat 5D staterooms this morning. WE ARE SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!
