Hey!! I've been checking every day since last week to see if anyone had started a cruise meet thread yet!! I wasn't brave enough to do it just in case we had to cancel. My DH and I will be cruising with you!! This will be our fourth Disney cruise. We haven't told anyone other than the kids that we are going. We cruised on the Fantasy in June and are ready for another Disney fix!!

So awesome! it took me all week to figure out how to start the thread, but hey, we finally did it!! lol!

So glad to hear we're not alone... for the life of me i can't figure out why this cruise is so cheap! we moved from spring break to this one because we just couldn't pass up the price.. you have to tell me ALL about the fantasy! i want to go soooo bad!! (i am just dying to try that popcorn soup it just blows my mind that it's popcorn, and a soup, and its popcorn soup...)

are there any ships you haven't been on? this is only our 2nd cruise, the first one being on the magic this past May.. we tried to get the same stateroom but apparently i waited exactly 2 hours to long (how frustrating!)

we were looking at trying out a carnival cruise since it's a lot closer (galveston or new orleans) and when they made the changes to these 4 days from galveston, well, i was online first thing in the morning and screaming for joy because i didn't have to "settle" with carnival.. i guess one cruise was all it took for me to become a disney snob.

So where are you guys from?

When I saw a thread on the boards wondering why this cruise was so cheap I had to head on over to disneycruiseline.com and see for myself. We booked an inside room, which we have never done before. We are just excited for the chance to sail again.
We had a blast on the Fantasy!! I was by far the best vacation ever!! I actually ate the popcorn soup. It was nothing like I was expecting it to be!! It really was good.
We cruised a 7 night western on the Magic, 3 nights on the Wonder and then the 7 night eastern on the Fantasy. The 3 night was way to short, but we tagged it on to a week trip to Disney. We surprised the kids with it!!
We have sailed on Carnival 4 times (only once since we started sailing Disney). It was convenient for us with New Orleans and Mobile being 2 hours away. It just doesn't compare to Disney!!
We are from South Mississippi. We live north of Hattieburg. What ports did you visit on your last Magic cruise?? On our last cruise we had a very active group and we started a Facebook page. I personally feel more comfortable sharing info when it's a private setting and not where everyone can read all our info!! Just a thought!!

Last time our ports were Key West, Nassau and Castaway Cay.. we fell in love with Castaway Cay so it's kind of a bummer that we won't be going there this time, but I can handle that trade off for the price difference!

We stayed in an inside room last time and loved it. Of course, this one being only our 2nd cruise, we don't know any different so it's ok! I was worried that it would feel damp and dark (I don't know why damp, but it was just a vision lol) and like a jail cell or something and it was totally the opposite!

We did stay in at times and order room service (for lunch, never missed dinner at a MDR) and watched a movie or whatever and I never remember thinking "gee, i wish i had a window" so it was fine.

We probably spent 1/3 of the trip on Deck 4 in the chairs snoozing or people watching/reading/whatever and just enjoying the breeze.. that's actually what DH talks most about since we've came back. Me, it's just the whole "shebang" that I loved. It was SO hard once we got back to actually have to get up and prepare and serve dinner, I just kept waiting for people to come out and know what I wanted to order, and to put my napkin in my lap for me, and wash all the dishes, but it just never happened!!

Our last group also made a facebook group towards the end, which we used a lot. I don't care either way, I just can't check facebook at work (so i spend hours surfing the disboards LOL)

Hopefully some more people will join us soon! I don't know why but ever since we booked, I've had this feeling of happiness come over me, and a need to shop... funny how that happens.....

I'm so in need of this vacation!! My DH said today "to bad we don't leave today!!" I'm just really hoping that the weather is nice and there is no fog!! I need to quit reading the message boards.

On our last cruise we did a "cabin crawl" where we went and visited other DISers cabins. We went inside a Cat 11 and it was nice!! This will be our first time cruising without a split bathroom, but since there are just two of us I don't think it will be a problem. My only fear is that the room will be dark and I may never wake up!! I've read where people put the TV on the channel that shows the front of the ship so they can see when the sun comes up. Honestly on our last cruise there was a day or two that I walked out on the balcony just before bed time just to say that I walked out there.

I agree that coming back to reality is by far the worst thing about getting off the ship!! Nothing beats having someone make up your room twice a day and all your meals being prepared for you! I'm going to miss CC this cruise!! We haven't had a chance to go to Serenity bay and I really want to go!!

If you don't mind I may go on ahead and start a cruise meet page on Facebook. I like to communicate that way!! It's easier to share pics and things.

Thanks IrishCowboy for moving this thread!! It makes it a lot easier to find!!

Welcome aboard!! Is this your 1st time cruising period or just your 1st time cruising with disney? Either way, you gals are going to have a blast!!!

What type of cabin did you get? This is only our 2nd cruise.. and we are totally hooked... my bff told me for years we'd be hooked and I never believed her.. now she just laughs at me because I eat sleep and breathe DCL

If you have any questions at ALL, feel free to ask me, even if you think they are dumb, i seriously don't care! Last time, I had about a bazillion questions and wound up private messaging someone from our meet group (thank goodness i met a realllllly nice lady who didn't mind!) so that was really awesome!

Once more people get on the thread we can start a file for rooms and what not for an FE list for who all is participating on that note.. and we can come up with a deadline when it gets closer to that time.

Do you do facebook? We are trying to figure out how to connect all together on facebook if we can all find each other lol gotta love technology!

DH has already informed me that on this cruise I may need to take my magnets down a notch.. even our stateroom host last time made a comment that we *may* have had to many last time since he, and we, and everyone kept knocking them off last time... (I was new.. I didn't know what to expect, I didn't know what the "average" magnet to door ratio was...and i wanted to be prepared... ) Oh well, i keep telling myself i need to work on new Cozumel magnets Once we get our facebook group figured out if and when i get some made i'll post some of the graphics there if you guys want them.

Is it possible to have too much Disney? I don't think so! I'm always happy to meet a fellow Disney overachiever.

Hey!! How exciting!! How old is your daughter? It's great to have y'all aboard!! This will be our 4th Disney Cruise. We've also sailed on Carnival 4 times. I tried to start a Facebook page so we could chat and get to know each other that way, but for some reason that's not going exactly as planned!!

Hey everyone! My name is Casey and my husband's name is Chris and we are most likely going to be joining everyone on this cruise. We will know for sure tomorrow. We are just waiting to hear from my mother in law to make sure her calendar is free so she can come watch our kids, we have 5. This will be our first Disney cruise and our first cruise period but we are huge Disney fans! This cruise would be an early Anniversary present as our 10 year wedding anniversary is in June. I am really hoping it all works out that we can join you! I am sure I will have a ton of questions about cruising for you all if we do go since I am a newbie!

Oh and hubby and I live in the Dallas Fort Worth area!

Out To Sea Lee I requested to be your friend on FB. My name is Casey there and my profile pic is me wearing black and holding a baby with a black headband and my cover photo is of my 5 girls. I am pretty sure we will be joining you as my mil is dying to get out of Utah come February so I am pretty excited, I just hope I don't have to say goodbye to you all!

Soooooo I am!

Looking forward to meeting everyone and I am interested in the FE exchange. I've never done one before, so it should be fun.

I will look up the facebook page.

Our names are Krissy and Veronica and we are in 5133 as of now. I am going to see about an upgrade at port, so that might change.

Krissy
Sounds like you two will have lots of fun! I've added you to our list Thanks for all the info so quickly!! We did FE's on our last cruise and it was fun (we went a little overboard with it and won't be doing that this time) so I'm expecting to enjoy it a lot more this go round. But it was lots of fun walking up and down the halls and seeing everyone's doors and fish extender's (some of our table mates didn't understand the whole concept of FE's... so they hung out their bra's since other people had stuff hanging out by their doors....needless to say since Disney apparently "matches" people based on their age for dinner seating, we've made some requests this time....... ) and even the little smiley face vacuums the CM's had... they were too cute!

Fun!! We hope you get to join us!! Can't wait to hear if it gets to work out for you and DH. You guys will love it and it will be a great anniversary present for you!!! I'm sure you can find answers to any questions you will have between us and the Disboards!!
