For medical reasons, I can't have coke, pepsi or dr. pepper. I generally have root beer. If it's not available, what other choices will I have?

The soda fountain offers Sprite, lemonade and tea. Or you can bring your own. We brought orange soda with us.

This was a huge shock to me...how could this happen. I tell you its the the abudance of food,

Here is how I combated it:
-I worked out before I left so my body was in full swing of burning.
-I worked out twice with a trainer (it was considerably cheap compared to my gym).
-I only took the stairs (which was pretty easy even with heels on)
-I ran the 5K on CC, it only takes about 1 hr (of course I sent DH to get a good spot on the beach, cause he can blink and lose weight)

I ended up losing 2lbs on the cruise and I ate everything possible, I was a food addict.

Love this, I will totally do the 5K now!! I cannot run the whole thing, but I will run/walk it!! Love the stair idea too, and I bet, with such a busy place, that you will beat the elevator most times!

Not sure what to do!

On the bright side, if you have issues in the port where you get a higher number then you should just talk to the check in person and they will help you out.
Here's the deal, We have 18 people going, or 6 parties. One party of two did online check in and got an 11:30 time slot. Then I checked in my in-laws and they got a noon time slot. Being without our passports (it was over Christmas) I couldn't do our family, so I called Disney Cruiseline in a panic because I knew I wouldn't be able to get an early check in time by the time we got home and they said, "Don't check in online then because when you are assigned a time, THAT is your time, but if you don't have an assigned time, then you can just show up and they'll get you in when they can. I am worried about this! We are all planning on getting to the port at 11am. I know we'll wait some, but just hoping we'll be ok like the agent said... Anyone have any thoughts on this?

What did they use for the character autographs? Sharpie? Paint pen? Just wondering how permanent the autographs will be. I assume you will never use the platter for food and will only display it? Thanks!

They'll use whatever you give them with the item to be autographed (if you want somethine specific or special colors). Otherwise, I believe it's just a black Sharpie.
