Smile It's all settled!

We also booked the Fantasy for March 2-9, 2013!

I loved the Wonder and I have to admit being a little nervous about the larger ship since I've never been on a cruise except for the Wonder. No matter, my kids can't wait to ride the Aqua Duck, and I'm always up for a new adventure.

It's me, Disney Mom, and DD's age 13 and 10 when we travel.

It's never too early to start thinking about Fish Extenders! Count us in!

Welcome!!! I'm so happy to finally have someone else in this meet thread The Dream was our first cruise ever and let me tell you, we navigated that huge ship like we'd been on in it many times before so you'll do GREAT! Your daughter's will LOVE the Aqua Duck! My DD rode it back to back. My DS will be finally be tall enough by this cruise so he can ride it too.

And it's never too early for Fish Extenders! That was one of the highlights of our trip

HI! Count us in too. We're friends and traveling companions of ptmom. Will be our 3rd trip together. They just keep getting better and better.

Hubby and I are actually leaving in 3 weeks to go on Oasis of the Seas so the Dis Fantasy will be a walk in the park for me size wise.

I love cruising and would do it more if I could.

However hubby is NOT a Disney fan (can't imagine why not!) so this trip will consist of me, Dis mom, kiddos DD13, DD11, DD8 (all at time of sailing), and Dis grandma. Will be Grandma's first time sailing but I betcha she'll be hooked. I told her there's nothing like Disney.

Sonogal is responsible for my Disney cruise addiction...it's hard to believe that 2 years ago I had never cruised and now I'm posting on Disboards and planning fish extenders 15 months ahead! Dis Grandma must be official if she's announced on Disboards....Welcome aboard! We are going to have a fabulous vacation!

Hi Kateesha,

We were on the same cruise with you in October! I guess I will have to come up with something new for my FE gifts . Looking forward to cruising with you again.

We'll be four: me, my husband, DS11 and DD9.

The kids are already plotting their Aquaduck strategy, that was just too much fun!

Awesome! Wasn't the cruise amazing? I can't wait til we cruise again, if we had lots more money, we'd do 2-3 Disney cruises a year! Did you make it to the cruise meet? My family was so tired from traveling the day before that once we went to our room we took a "nap" and almost slept through the safety drill So sadly, we missed the meet. But I we won't miss it on this one!

I'm totally with you, we had a wonderful time.

We also missed the meet because we had been at "family astronaut training" at the Kennedy Space Center that morning, so we only arrived around 2pm. By the time we got something to eat, we were too late. Maybe this time! We will also not be so jet lagged this time, since we'll come to the US the week before the cruise this time - so the kids (ok, me) shouldn't fade mid-dinner

Heidi, Welcome Aboard!

We look forward to meeting you!

I'm intrigued by your comment about family astronaut training at Cape Kennedy...would you recommend it for others? I'm considering pulling my girls out of school one day early so that we can spend a day at Kennedy Space Center before the cruise. I was there about 12 years ago--it was fantastic so I can only assume that it would be even better now.

Hi Jean,
Indeed, astronaut training was fantastic. They have 2 different programs, a full day one for older kids and adults and a family training, which is half a day (8:30-1). They only seem to offer the family program about once a month.

You get to meet an astronaut, do some exercises on how things work and some to simulate weightlessness and one of those spinning things (which was too cool, though we were the only ones who dared). Then you fly a mission. It was great, we were really sorry we had to rush off because we would have loved to stay and go through the museum (the training is at the astronaut hall of fame).

I would highly, highly recommend it, though if I had my choice, not on the day we leave for the cruise. But it was too good to pass if that was the only option (I also didn't feel like we missed anything not getting on the ship really early, but I am sure that's a personal thing).

Sorry for the long-winded reply, that is how exited I still am that we got to do that!

Look forward to meeting you.

Heidi

Thank you! I think my girls would like astronaut training; I'll check it out!
