Going on the Fantasy for our first Disney Cruise, myself, DH, DD (age 4 at time of cruise). DS & DBIL are also sailing on the same trip (their fourth Disney Cruise). I cannot wait, DD has been to Disney World three times and loves it, so I know this is going to be an awesome trip for the whole family.

How old is your dd?

FE exchange

Is anybody interested in a FE exchange sounds like a lot of fun for our first cruise, I know that my DD (4 at time of cruise) would love it. Please let me know.

I'm on the fence. We have the last 2 cruises but I'm a little worried about the size of the ship and delivery. It could be exhausting on the smaller ship and I can't imagine what it could be like on the new ones.

Anyone out there been on the new ships and done the FE exchange and have any comments?

I feel the same way. I am interested and it sounds like alot of fun but I too am wondering about the size and the time that it will take to deliver. As it is only 7 days and there is so much to do. It would be nice if my dd's would help with delivery as they will be 16 and 13 and they like roaming the ship anyway.
I read on another thread where the FE master can decide how everything is to be split up depending on how large the group is. Some groups who are large and split the groups do it by decks or by sides or front/back of ship. So I guess there are many options.

Hi Everyone,

We are seriously thinking about switching our Fantasy Cruise this this October Cruise. It would be my 40th birthday the day before we would cruise. Just concerned about my twins missing 4 days from 5th grade that is all.

If we cruise with you I am happy to organize the FE exchange. Did it for my upcoming cruise in a few weeks and it was GREAT!! We have a large group and we did divide the group in half!!

I hope you get to go I will be 40 1/2. I don't know about your schools. But when my dd was in 5th grade this past year and was out for a week sick, she didn't have a lot of work to make up. That is our fall break. I took my oldest dd out of school one week for vacation back when she was in 3rd or 4th grade and I had it excused prior to the trip and she received her work before we left so she worked on it on the way and on the way back. (Something to do during the long drive?)

It's official!

I had my TA move our reservation!! We will be sailing on this cruise for my 40th Birthday!!

I am happy to organize the FE exchange. I will post more on this thread when we get back from our Dream Cruise. We leave in ten days from today!!

We are going to VB, then the Dream, then WDW!!

For the cruise we are going on soon, for the FE we had a cut-off date as to when you could sign-up by. Then since we had 53 families participating we cut the list in half. So it would not be soo costly and so delivery would not take as long. We also tried to group rooms/floors near each other in each group to make delivery easier.

Would it be ok to start getting people to sign-up for the FE once I return from this cruise?

Looking, forward to getting to know you all!!

I have twins who will be ten when we sail!!

I am so glad you are cruising with us and thank you again for doing the FE. Going on a cruise for your 40th, I cannot think of a better way to celebrate it.
