Almost finished with our gifts. We are doing something for everyone too.

Can't wait to get on board and meet everyone!
Nonni:

Put your name on, or go anonymous - it's up to you. From past cruises, it seems most put their name on. Time frame is - give folks enough time to get unpacked and get their FE's up, make sure all are delivered by about noon or so on the last day so people can pack up their goodies. I tend to deliver early so I'm not running around trying to get things done at the end of the cruise.

Thanks!

Also, I thought that Wdwgoose had to drop off. Check pg. 80, he's still listed on the FE list. I know it's alot for you to have to keep up with. I appreciate all your hard work. Before we know it this will just be great memories.

It Must be getting close as school just finished for me!! Now to focus on my commencement for the school I graduated from in August. That is Saturday May 5th and then it will be time to start packing. Hard since we live in Florida, all the clothes we would want to bring with us are all the ones we need now.

We have everything we need for the FE's so now just have to take the time to put it all together. We won't be able to finish putting it all together until we board.

I'll get my pedicure before we leave and I am growing my hair out so no hair cut for me!

5Dreamers, Elaine Dragonlady, carouselkr, JohnPA - thx a mint for your kind welcome. I knew this was a fun group!

Elaine, I did see that SWw/end was the return of our cruise - you pointing it out again has me itching to change my plans. Initially we were going to drive to Epcot right from the port, and the next day an early morning start for the Exotic Car Driving Experience (an early b'day gift for DH) and then spend the rest of the day at MK (which as Evening MH to 1am). Last day was DTD, with ME pick up at resort at 5:40pm...so I could switch things up a bit

gailg3horses - thx for sharing that letter on BBB & PL. I didn't receive it and have no interest in booking it but it was fun too see anyway.

carouselkr - appreciate you sharing the All Ears activities. I looked at joining that group too but decided against it as DH lacks the Disney gene, and while I use All Ears' website in my trip planning, I am unfamiliar with AE's people/'personalities'


Looking fwd to the return of the 1st Eastern sailing and hopefully the Navigators and a TR or two!

cheers,

Looking forward to the Eastern sailing reports, too. Hopefully we won't have to wait long!!!!!
This will be our first time in Palo and I was wandering about tipping. When did you guys tip or is tipping included in $20?

Happy Packing Everyone!!!

No brackets!

Hi all, I don't know if Lara saw my post but I can not get the brackets ordered in time. NOT....... I am so sorry! I called the guy on the phone. It's 7 days to get it set up and five for delivery. But he said he couldn't be sure that they would be sent on time. I just don't want 300 plus bands showing up at my house after we leave. I'm so sorry to disappoint! That being said, tony and I are up for the dis meet as long as we are on the ship!So much to do and so little time? I don't know how the last two years blew by! Lol

Megan/mstinston:

Howdy neighbor!! I see you are also from Missouri. We are in the St. Charles area; where are you?

On our last Disney cruise, we met a couple that lived about 1.5 miles away. In further discussion we found that the wife worked at the same hospital as me.

Sing with me now.....it's a small, small world!!!
