Hello cruisers!

Hey there!

We are coming along on this cruise! We originally booked this coming September, but the new section in Fantasy Land would not be finished...so we are coming in February. I hope it isn't too cold. Anyone cruise in February before???

Anyway...it is just the girls. Me and my DD (9) second Disney cruise (Oct 2011) and my Mom's (DGM???) 1st Disney cruise. It will be her 70th Birthday!

We are so excited. My daughter doesn't know yet...not sure when we will tell her.

Anyway...we are up for the Fish Extenders too...

Everyone have a great day and have fun planning your cruise...it is fun, but lots of work.

Renee (DM), Ashley (DD) and Pat (DGM)...not sure if I have all this right. Still feel like a rookie.

Hello! We are also celebrating a birthday on our cruise ^_^ This will be our second Disney cruise also.

Oooh are you going to do a big reveal to your daughter? That would be fun

Maybe we should start a FE list in August or September?

Hi! It is exciting to see more people booking!
That is so cool! Lots of Birthday celebrations on this cruise! I am soooo excited!
I'm not sure on the weather, either. We have done WDW in early December several times, and there have been trips where we were able to wear shorts and T-shirts, and then there was a trip where it was colder when we got off the plane in Orlando than it was when we got on in Philadelphia. Brrrr. I am hoping that the cruise will be ok, as it will be warmer as we sail farther south. I'll take chilly weather over sailing through a hurricaine any day though!

ETA: I just noticed that your daughter and mine are close in age. Glad to know she will have someone to play with! She is 8 now, but will be 9 by the time we sail.

Oh that is wonderful! My Ashley will be so excited! She makes friends pretty easy. I can't wait...I'm so excited too.
My son really wants to go too, but I think it is just a girl thing this time. I'm starting to feel a little guilty. But not too guilty.

Hurricanes...NO! Cooler weather...yes, I agree. I just hope it isn't so cold that the kids can't enjoy the pools. I know they are heated, but getting in and out of the cool air...I sure hope no one gets sick. Think good thoughts!

This will be our 4th Disney cruise (never sailed with another line before).

Our first was a 3-night to the Bahamas on the Wonder, then a 7-night to the Eastern Caribbean on the Magic, and then this past January we did the 7-night Mexican Riviera on the Wonder. We were looking at the 7-night Western Caribbean on the Fantasy but since we're also doing WDW and Universal (Harry Potter!!!) we decided to go the slightly cheaper route.

Can't wait to see this boat!!!

This will be our 3rd trip to WDW... we're west coasters... done D-Land too many times to count. Staying at the Art of Animation resort. It looks so fun!!!

That'll be after the cruise. Any one else?
Yes, we are going to Disney after the cruise. I want to see the new addition to Fantasy Land. Universal with Harry Potter is so GREAT! We have one more day left on our pass...so not sure if we are going back in July or Feb 13or in Sept 13. You will have a blast. We are looking into the Art of Animation..we haven't decided yet where we are staying.

Greetings,
My wife, Lori and I, Chris, will be joining you on this adventure. We may have our first grandson, Owen, joining us on this cruise. It all depends if his Mommy will let us steal him. I doubt it, but he is booked!!!!
We are from Ontario Canada, about two hours north of Toronto.

ONLY 227 MORE DAYS UNTIL WE STEP ON TO THE SHIP

I'm with you...as long as they can enjoy the pools and Castaway Cay, I will be happy. Heck, I plan to try out the AquaDuck myself! I will be happy as long as it is over 70. Fingers crossed!

Hi! 227 days makes it seem so far away. I hate to wish my summer away, but Feb. can't get here soon enough! Hoping you get to bring your Grandson. It would be so great for him to have this time with you. I know my kids have many fond memories of travelling with their Grandparents. I wouldn't trade that for anything.

winter weather

We always cruise in the winter so I've done 2 in the Caribbean during this time of year. Each cruise had both hot (hot, for this Pacific Northwesterner) and cool temps. Never been so cold that kids weren't still crazy about getting in the pool.

I've got an 8-year-old girl too!! She might like a posse to hang out with.

It'd be fun if there are others staying at the Art of Animation after the cruise. Let the party continue!!!

You have to look at it like " it is only".... That's how I do it.
My grandson will be 18 months old at the time of sailing. I have my fingers crossed, but I doubt it. The whole family went to Disney when he was only 6 months old, so he is a veteran. Actually, we bought him shares in Disney, so he technically is an owner...lol.
Usually we take all the kids, and a few others. The last three years we usually have about 11 of us in four cabins, so this year our cruise should be peaceful!

You are right..."it is only"....does sound better. And considering that after out Nov 2011 WDW trip, my DH said No more Disney for 5 years, I am THRILLED (and won't point out his poor math skills....)

LOL! I'm with you there! We have been on one other cruise, but not Disney and it was just DH & I. It was so relaxing, so I am hoping that this is too. Disney tends to be Go, go, go for us, so I am hoping that we can just relax and go with the flow on the ship. I have to admit, that while I know it isn't in the budget, I have been checking out the rules for booking while onboard....I'd love to do it again, even though we haven't even left yet.

So.....My DH brought it up last night that we set sail on Superbowl Sunday. Oops! Sorry, babe....guess you will be going to a Disney Superbowl party.

Hello fellow Ontario Canadian!!
If you have any questions, just ask. There is a tonne of information on these forums.
We have done 6 cruises on Disney, so we might have an answer for you!

You need tips, we have alot of them!!!

1. Bring hi-lighter pens for marking on your daily navigator. Best way to plan out your days!
