January 4, 2014 Fantasy, Trust, and Pixie Dust!

Hello everyone!!!


I just booked this cruise for me and my boyfriend. It will be my 8th cruise, but first with Disney, and since I am such a Disney fan I know that it is truly my dream come true. This 13 month wait is going to be long but hopefully we will keep each other company!!! Can't wait to get the planning process underway.

EDIT: January, 31: Here is the link to the facebook group as well:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/337544743022863/

for those interested in joining...FE group will be set up there.

How exciting, it looks like you have sailed DCL before, you will be a good source of information!!! I am so excited, the bf is holding back a little bit of his enthusias, :-) But I know he will love it. We will both be 25 by the time the cruise comes around. It is a bit of a celebration cruise, as I will just be graduating from grad school a month before we sail! I am already trying to think about excursions etc. I would love to extend the trip a little and add a stay at WDW, since I have never been, but that decision will have to be made much later. I am looking forward to all of the planning (what I do best) I know I will be spending a lot of time on these boards.

Count us in! This will be the 2nd cruise for my wife and I. We sailed earlier this year on the Wonder to Alaska, and had the time of our lives. I thought everything was great, and am excited to see how much more fantastic the Fantasy is, since it's the top of the line. This cruise has added sentimental value for me, because January 4, 2014 is my 40th birthday, and there is no place I'd rather spend it than on a DCL ship.

Once we get some more peeps on this voyage, we can start talking Fish Extenders!

Hello everyone! I'm Kathy, wife of Pinocchio's #1 Fan, and I'm gonna volunteer my services to set up the Fish Exchange for our cruise. I figure since I've been on Disney cruise, I'm an expert now, right?

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone in the next 13 months, and having others to share the excitement as the cruise draws closer.

Count us in! It will be me (the mom) and my DS who will be 6, almost 7 (turns 7 at the end of Jan) on this trip. He will still be on winter break. I booked an 11C stateroom. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. We did the 2 week Hawaii cruise on the Wonder in October and a 7 day also on the Wonder to the Mexican Riviera in April. This will be our first cruise out of PC and on a newer ship. I'm excited!

Count us in...so far DW, DD (19) DS (23) and I. Cat 5E..This will be my 5th DCL cruise... Good news, I own a screen printing store, so if we want special shirts for our special cruise I can do them.

I was supposed to be doing this same cruise for 2013, but I had to bail due to the brand new business. I also opened a travel office... 13 months...but I am sure we will all make the time fly here..

That makes three of us in 11C!

As far a DCL goes, the 11C is the equivalent of what we used to refer to as the "Bob Eucker" seats at the ball park! (Hoping someone here gets that reference!)
That just means we won't have to walk very far to drop goodies in your fish extender! We have cabin 2525, so one of you guys might even be our next door neighbor! IT looks to me like we have a lot of people from California in our group. For you guys, I have included this handy map!

This cruise is gonna be a blast!
