A WONDERful way to celebrate Independence Day! - Disney Wonder July 1, 2013

...Who else is booked on this cruise? DH and I (no kids to speak of here!) just moved a 2012 dummy date to this cruise. We're looking forward to celebrating my birthday and America's in the Land of the Midnight Sun!

We have a website set up to assist in our group's planning, which can be found here: http://alaska2013.jimdo.com. The website is password-protected, so please message Mackie Mouse (or any other DISBoarder on the roll call) for the password if you would like access to the site. You will find useful information there, as well as our FE Exchange list, the day and time of our meet-ups, and photos of your fellow cruisers to aid in recognition on-board!

We have two Meet-Ups planned:
July 1, 2013 (Mon) at 2:30 PM - Embarkation CruiseMeet in the Promenade Lounge (Deck 3, Aft)
July 7, 2013 (Sun) at 9:30 AM - Family Pajama Breakfast at Triton's (Deck 3, Midship)

As of 4/12/2013, our FE is FULL at 25 cabins. We will be capping the list at 25 cabins, or on June 1, 2013, whichever comes sooner. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you would still like to participate, contact Mackie Mouse, who will organize a wait list, or a second group (if there is enough interest). You must include your cabin number to be added to the list.

We also have a closed Facebook group set up for more open communication. You can request to join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/514013955296762/

Here are some links to help everyone with their planning:

We are booked with you! I may have sailed with you before. Your name looks familiar.

Hi Dawn! We've previously been on the 8/22/09 Magic Western cruise (on our honeymoon!) and this past summer were on the 8/7/11 Dream cruise (on our second anniversary . Were you on either of those sailings? If not...looking forward to meeting you and your family anyway! An Alaska cruise will be a huge check off my bucket list - I cannot wait.

Hi Guys! We swapped cruises. We were on the Fantasy eastern and decided that Alaska would be more worthwhile. It'll be me, Steve, my wife, Laura and our kids Stuart (11 nearly 12) and Leah who will be days from her 9th birthday.

We've been on a total of 6 Disney cruises (2 on the Magic, 2 on the Wonder, and 2 in the Dream.). As much as I like the new ship I've got a real soft spot for the classic ships.

Me too! Biggest reason that I swapped cruises.

Nice to meet, you disnydaddy/Steve!

So - where are we from so far? Hubby and I hail from outside Philadelphia.

By the way, I love the little image in your signature! We may have to steal it and make magnets out of it over the course of the coming year...

Hi! We're from California. We live in the Central Valley. West Coast cruises are pretty convenient for me. We plan to drive up to Canada with our fifth wheel and stay in the Vancouver area for a while either before or after the cruise.

Glad to have you! The group is still small, but hopefully will grow some as we get closer to that one year out mark.

We are booked too!

Hi guys!

We were on an Eastern on the Fantasy and switched to this!

So excited for Alaska! We are me, DH, DS (9 at the time), and DD (6 at the time) and are Americans living in Montreal, QC.

We have cruised 3 times (2 on DCL and one on Carnival) and love cruising with Mickey!

Welcome! We, too, switched from a Fantasy Eastern to this cruise. I sometimes question the logic of it but I am saving a few dollars with not having airfare. (This is an long drive for me but certainly doable.)

Hello and welcome, Canadian crew!!

So with over a year out...does anyone have other trips planned to tide them over? We are lucky in that we have a few set to go...which is unusual for us!

This summer we'll be spending a week with friends in California near San Francisco, hopefully visiting Yosemite, taking in a Giants game, drinking lots of wine in Sonoma County, and doing lots of other fun stuff we didn't get to do during our last California visit two years ago. My husband's best friend lives there, and ten-ish friends will be joining us.

Later on (date not yet set), we'll be driving 12 hours down to Nashville, TN for somewhere approximating a week of fun with one of my best friends from college, who is originally from the area and whose parents still live there. We'll likely bring the dog with us on this trip, which will consist of seeing the city from a local's perspective, eating a lot of barbecue, playing more than a few nerdy board games with our best pal and family, and bringing our friend some much-wished-for Philadelphia microbrews

I'll have to survive most of a school year, but over my spring break in 2013, a few months before Alaska, we're also going to head out to Arizona, where said great friend from Nashville lives now. DH's sister lives in Phoenix, and friend and his wife live in Tucson, so we'll spend some time with them and also trek out with friend and DW to DISNEYLAND that week.

Needless to say, the next year is going to consist of some amazing travel. Looking forward to seeing all of you for the grand finale!

How is everyone else passing the time until next July?

We are actually US citizens who live in Montreal (DH works for the UN), but have been up here for more than 3.5 years.

While DH is in St. Petersburg, Russia I am taking to kids to visit my parents in Ohio and then for a SURPRISE trip to WDW! We are also visiting Quebec City in August.

There is a very small chance that we might also go in October for DS's 9th birthday and the MNSSHP.

Then... I am running the Goofy!!! January 2013 first ever solo trip as the kids will be back in school, and first ever Goofy!

The kids are begging for DL next March, but we are also saving for a house and have to draw the line somewhere...
