Nice to meet you! This will be my twins third Disney cruise, so they will be happy to show your daughter around the kids club! Welcome aboard!

Tentative Hello

We are booking this today but hubby is military and who knows what might happen next summer. But this is our plan!

We did the 5 NT Canadian Cruise in June this year and just loved having to wear sweatshirts on a cruise, so we decided this was the next step!

looking forward to hearing travel tips for getting to Vancouver, and excursion discussions!

it will be me, DH, DS 14 (at time of sailing), and DD 11.

Hey were are scheduled for this cruise also.

Me (46)
DH (48)
DD (11, at time of cruise)

This will be our third DCL, with the other 2 in the Med. We are also a military family, but because of where I'm stationed I know that I will have this time off. It is nice to know when I will be off, but also kind of stinks because I only get to take time off in July and December.

Never been on the Wonder and can't wait to find out more about the ship. I'm going to look into what is available and possible build a website to help all of us get acquainted. I did this before on my last cruise.

Looking forward to this cruise and hopefully I will be bringing my parents along for their 50th Wedding Anniversary. My husband and I will be celebrating our 19th. What if anything will anyone else be celebrating?

Again, Hello, and looking forward to hearing from others.

Cindy (DopeyFan1966)

Hello again.

Okay everyone (well at least the few of us already planning), I created a website to help. I did this last year for a DCL cruise I took also. It is a great way to learn things about the cruise and it's ports and to get to know each other.

You can click on this link and take a look if you would like. It is still a work in progess, but I should have it complete by the end of next week (hopefully).

http://8july2013-dclalaskacruise.weebly.com/

Hope you enjoy it and find it useful. If you want to be added, please provide the information either through the link on the website or PM me here through the Disboards.

Really looking forward to this vacation.

Cindy

We're on this cruise. Our group is quite large:

Me (39)
DH (39)
DD (7)
DD (4)
Grampa (72)
Grandma (70)
Brother (38)
SIL (31)
Niece (4)

This is the first Disney cruise for all of us. DH and I went on a short RCL cruise 10 years ago. My parents love cruising, but have never been on DCL. My brother and his family have never cruised at all and my poor deprived niece has never been to Disney World!

I'm the planner, so I'm looking for suggestions for shore excursions with children.

I haven't done a lot of research yet, but if you look at this site that I created it has a few websites to check out regarding doing shore excursions on your own.

http://8july2013-dclalaskacruise.weebly.com/

I'm not done with the page yet, but should be soon. I did this for a cruise we did last year also. It is a great way to meet people other than through this board.

This will be our third DCL, your children will have a great time. My daughter loves the kid zones. A great place to take the kids for a little while to go to the adult only pool, or to go off to the spa. In my own opinion DCL is the best cruise line to go on. My mother-in-law was skeptical about going on a DCL, she has been on many other cruises and absolutely LOVED the DCL cruise. She is actually thinking about going again with us.

The website looks great. What a nice idea.

I'm curious how far in advance the Castaway Club members will be able to book their shore excursions and Palo reservations. Nobody in our party has sailed on DCL before, so our window doesn't open until April 24, 2013. Do club members get a few days' jump on us or several weeks?

Awesome, very cool! Thanks for putting the site together, I am up for helping coordinate some private excursion, the disney ones are EXPENSIVE, but look worth it!

Again, your site looks super cool!

It depends on your level. Don't worry, on our first timer cruise in April, there was a ton of slots available when we were able to book, and a ton more on board. You will get to eat at Palo. Actually, on our mexican riviera cruise in April, we changed our Palo reservation several times while onboard and there was always tons of openings.

Here is the booking windows:

120 Days in Advance - Concierge Guests in Stateroom Categories 1 - 3 and Platinum Castaway Club Members

105 Days in Advance – Gold Castaway Club Members In any Stateroom Category

90 Days in Advance – Silver Castaway Cay Club Members In any Stateroom Category

75 Days in Advance – New Disney Cruisers in Stateroom Categories 4 - 12

I have coordinated a facebook group for the last few cruises I went on, would anyone be interested in that here too? Our last one was pretty active (and still is, even after the cruise!)
