OK Now I'm confused. It either has to be for another cruise or another event on our cruise.


Well that's weird. Just so you know it wasn't me.

Roughly that - she hasn't said yet exactly, but we should know in a few days. There ARE a couple cabins where you will want to plan to leave two - because the occupants are EACH doing the FE - seperately - (so you'll be receiving two from that cabin)

Thanks for the mention of this Linda. Since I am one of the seperate FE. I know it can be confusing.

Yesterday I had, should I call it a "dismounting malfunction" on my bike? I was biking along a road with a lot of road works so I for a short distance, I was on the foot path. I came to the end of the path and it was a curb without a slope so as my bike isn't designed for "offroading" I thought I'd get off, cross the road on foot and carry on. As I was getting off my bike, there must have been shingle on the path, my foot slipped from under me and I twisted my ankle and landed on my knees on the nearly laid shingle road.

So grazed knees and a badly sprained ankle. I had it xrayed this morning and its not broken. Dr has given me two days off work for r'n'r as I need to keep it elevated and iced.

It really needs to get better fast as I'm going to Sydney on Saturday for the Mardi Gras Parade. I've been looking forward to this weekend since I booked it a year ago. I'll go, even if I have to hop around Sydney slowly... Unfortuately, I'll probably not have the shopping spree I was also hoping to have. But at least I can still go.

And finally, a question. Is anyone at or going to WDW before we cruise? I would dearly like a set of park maps for my brother and SIL who are trying to decide between DL and WDW next year. Thought it might be good for them to see what the differences are between the two.
Sent you a PM.

Ask for clarification. You are the hostess so if someone is trying to "help" that needs to be straightened out

Just a rumor though right ? I am hoping it's just a supply issue that will be resolved by the time we cruise.

I saw a lot of you are going to Ariel’s Grotto for m dinner on the 27th; we will be there @ 7:30pm and 10:30pm for the World of Color.
Looking for some Pixie Dust to get me back on my two feet; either way, we will be there.

Good luck with your healing.

That just stinks ! Hope you have a speddy recovery ! Sending to both.

That is what some are saying, others are saying it is a make us healthier thing. I have sent DCL an email asking them to clarify. We will see.

Wow, hard question. Depends on the hours at the parks that day. If they are open early morning until midnight or so, you could do both parks. DL early over to CA for a few hours in the afternoon and then back to DL until close. It really is way easier to get from one park to the other than at WDW. BUT, if the parks close at 10 then I would just do DL. It has the magic of Walt's touch that you won't find at any other park. I would try to see/do the things that are not at MK.

?? FABRIC ??

If anyone has any reasonable sized scraps of the DIS Cruise fabric that you do not have a job for, I might be interested it purchasing it. Please PM me so we can discuss size, shape, and cost.

Thanks!
Jan

Yes, I agree you should not just assume it is ok. They have new people working in Special Requests and we had major issues with our October events.

Alan and anyone else annoyed - I apologize if my posting offers to order tee-shirts with images and the banner images seemed to monopolize the boards. It won't happen again.

I may not be the best person to answer this, since I've only been to DL a few times and I'm biased towards WDW. ^_^

You might be able to get both done in a day if you skip some of the rides that you can get at either park (DL or WDW). Maybe it is just me but I didn't think that either park was that big.

If you only pick one, personally I would go to Disneyland because it has the majority of my favorite rides and some that are different from WDW. Go Matterhorn!
California Adventure was okay, though, if you love Soarin' make sure you go because the wait never seems to be as long at DL as it is at WDW. Maybe because they are in California?

They also have a nice setup with their Downtown Disney area. It's compact and has plenty of food choices and places to shop!


Just my two cents and a hair clip on the matter.

I don't see the issue with this. I think it is great and very nice of you to offer your time and resources to do this!.. I have toyed with the idea of order a few, but just have been lazy about deciding which ones. I haven't seen that is has been an issue with most people on this thread. I say continue to post!

I appreciated your help and offers that you posted! I certainly hope Alan wan't implying that he was "annoyed" about your post.

Don't berate Disney too much for the Mickey bars, the supplier is unable to keep them supplied at this time. As for the ice cream sandwiches being not very good, I prefer them to the Mickey bars personally. But there's no way on earth that they are healthier, so the "healther" thing is probably crap.

DO NOT skip Pirates of the Caribbean or Space Mountain. They are NOT the same in both parks. I would also recommend not skipping the Haunted Mansion. Tower of Terror, I could skip that, I don't like the one-shaft mechanism at DL.
