I have had that happen. Don't worry, they will, eventually, get it fixed. It is just another example of why Disney is an entertainment company but not great on website development.

Smile hello from abroad!

Hey everyone, I am Debbie and this will be my second cruise. Myself, husband and two little girls did the Med cruise on the Magic in August 2011. We live in Ireland but I am from Los Angeles (husband is American too) so I am excited to go home and go on a cruise.

We are going to be bringing one of our best friends and possibly my brother. My little girls will be 3 & 5 on the cruise. Two of our rooms are on 2 and one is on 6. Looking forward to meeting people!!

Hi Deb and family... aboard!!!!

You live in Ireland...awesome!!! Visiting Ireland is on my wishlist...in fact it is my biggest wish.

I haven't been to LA since I was very young and that was moons ago . I've never been to San Francisco, Victoria or Vancouver. Very excited about this trip.

Looking forward to meeting you and your family.

We booked last week as soon as they were open to the "non Platinum and Gold". ASDSNY you beat me to the secret verandah!

We are Susan (me) DH Rick, and DD Grace, 8 at cruise time.
There is a remote possibility that we will change to Vancouver to LA REPO, depending on the dates. This will be our 4th Disney cruise. We were on the Wonder this past Easter (10 nt. MR) and Thanksgiving (7 nt. MR) and will be on the Fantasy this June. We love the Wonder and the CMs.

Welcome - will there be a Vancouver to LA Repo? I thought the Wonder was going to Hawaii after the Alaskan season.

Not sure, but it is unlikely that they would go from Vancouver directly to Hawaii. More likely reposition then go to Hawaii, Mexico, or Panama Canal. I would love to do ANY of those itineraries. Either way, we'll be missing some school, but timing may be better to miss the beginning of the school year and not toward the end. With this schedule, we would have to fly back the day we arrive into Vancouver (Memorial Day) and we wouldn't get to see the sights.

Sorry, if we have to cancel for any reason I'll be sure to coordinate with you so we pass it along to another DISer.

I'm not sure how well these dates are going to be for work so we'll see how this May goes and then decide if we need to move to another cruise.

Thanks! Which room did you get? I was hoping for 6634. I'm in 6652.

We're in 7120, we had 7620 on the Panama Canal cruise and loved it. I think the two on deck 6 are 6634 and 6134 on the Wonder and Magic.

We moved our dummy date to this cruise on opening day. We were really, really (no, really!) hoping the Wonder would continue doing the Mexican Riviera for 2013. We had our heart set on a spring break cruise. We took the Vancouver to LA repo last fall (our first cruise ever!) and just loved it. We did decide 5 nights just wasn't enough so I was happy this one is 7 nights, especially with the two days in San Fran! We've never been there so quite excited about that. And it means we only need a one-way flight to LA as we can just bus home from Vancouver .

Our crew is myself & dh, and our two daughters - who will be 8 and 12 by the time we cruise Gasp! how can that be?! We booked a 5C on deck 6 but I'm mulling over bumping up to a 5B if we can get on deck 7. Just to be one flight closer to the pool and drink station for our morning hot chocolates (a highlight of our last cruise!). Oh, and the ice cream dispenser! I didn't find out about *that* until the last day of our cruise and I've been griping about it ever since ("Mom! just let it go...") although it probably saved me a good 10 pounds.

Sigh...it's going to be a long 16 months! At least it gives us lots of time to save.
Welcome aboard! Any suggestions of a decently priced hotel in the Vancouver area to spend a few days post cruise? We will rent a car, so it can be outside the city core, just something comfy with a pool for kids.

Yeah, more girls! I have a shy twin and a Mrs. Social twin who I am sure I will have to drag out of the kids club kicking and screaming! I am from Los Angeles also, we should hook up at a table! Keep the daugthers entertained!

twindaddy-my girls would love some friends on the ship! My youngest was in Flounder's nursery the first trip (not a fan BTW) but my oldest quickly fell in love with the club....and now both will get to attend it.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. We missed the whole meet up thing on the Med cruise as we booked late-so it was us, random Americans, and a bunch of Spanish and English passengers Still a great time but I am happy to get to know people ahead of time.

The Irish would be quite pleased to have you all visit-they need the euros I have lived there for over 5 1/2 years and I will admit that while it is a beautiful country, Los Angeles is better...but the grass always is on the other side of the ocean.

Booked this cruise the first day along with the first AK cruise. This cruise leaves on our 25th anniversary and the next cruise leaves on DD's 19th b'day - a great way to celebrate. Sailing will be myself, DH & DD(18)

Last week on the Dream we were talking with Capt. Henry and he gave me the bright idea to book the Miami-LA repo so booked that for DD & myself, not sure if I will keep that or not. Sure would be nice to be onboard for 4 weeks.
