Actually we have cruised the Disney Dream before, we were on the 2/13/11 sailing. I'd be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

My family and I are very excited to finally be cruising. I am sure I will have plenty of questions, we are Disney cruise line rookies but Disney World/Land Veterans.

If there is anything you can recommend as far as tips or ideas please feel free to pass along to us.

Wave phones are in your stateroom and are free for your use while on the ship. This way you can text and keep in touch with your family/friends since your cell phones will not work unless you are Scrooge McDuck! The roaming charges are off the charts so turn off your wifi and grab a wave phone if you need to ping someone.

However if you damage the phone, lose it or get it wet, you pay for it. I believe the cost is $250 which is why people are getting pouches/man-bags, etc. to carry them in.

The wave phones are GREAT. Of course I couldn't figure it all out until the last day of the cruise. One of our FE friends made us a pouch to put ours in and it also had a pocket for our room key. I thought about making some for my FE friends on this cruise...does anyone object????? lol I will also send some measurements of the ones that she made; just in case those don't wish to be on the FE list. It was GREAT! We clipped ours to our lanyard.
Can't wait! I just made reservations to eat at Cinderella's Castle when we get back! I'm so excited... I think I'm going to keep it a surprise from my daughter! We will see....Christmas and her birthday will look awful bear if I don't tell her before...

Oh a wave phone pouch would be AWESOME!!! I was looking at some on Ebay and Etsy, but was afraid to buy it without seeing it in person.

Your daughter will be so excited to eat in the castle. If you need to tell her ahead of time, maybe do it on Christmas or her birthday, so she better understands that it is part of the gift.

I am getting so excited! 5 months and counting....

Me too...I can't wait! I LOVE to travel!

For those who wanted the pouch measurements for the wave phone are 4 3/8 x 3 1/4...that is the pouch that carries the phone. The whole measurement with the flap is 9 3/4. This is the FINISHED product. 3 1/2 x 3 1/4 is the pocket measurement on the front to put your room key in. This was a great FE gift.

Smile Disney Dream February 3, 2013

Hi everyone! I just booked my family on the Dream for Feb 3, 2013. I have searched and searched, and I can't find ANYONE else posting for that date! Surely we wont have the whole ship to ourselves? I would LOVE to participate in a Fish Extender, FE. It will be my oldest daughter (8) and my 2nd Disney cruise, 1st time doing FE. My husband has cruised, but not with Disney (I've been trying to stress to him how completely different the experience is with Disney). My mother in law will also be with us, and it will be her first cruise...as well as our 2 year old We are celebrating the baby's 2nd birthday!! We have 2 adjacent rooms, though. Didn't want to crowd everyone into one room lol (Side note: we also have 6 month old twins, but they aren't coming with us...4 girls in all!!)
