let me also just say that dcl is the bomb. We went on the carnival sensation in June with my in-laws and I've never been so disappointed which is why we have this cruise booked. Gotta get the bad taste out of our mouths. DCL is all we will ever cruise on now.

Cruising January 17, 2013 on Disney Dream..

Can't wait for our cruise. Going with DH, DD 17, DS 13. We would love to participate in FE.

Cruised three times on the Disney Magic and then went on Norwegian. We were totally disappointed..So back to DCL. They set the bar for us so we are hooked.

We'll be there!

This trip is going to be a lot of firsts for us. Our first time staying on Disney property (at an AoA Nemo suite), our kids' first trip to WDW, followed by our first DCL cruise. All of this to celebrate our anniversary and our girls' January birthdays.

By the way, we're from the DC area too. It's a small world after all…

Julie
Chris - DH
Ella - DD will be nearly 9
Lydia - DD will have just turned 6

And yes, we'd like to do the FEs. Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Julie

Our first ever cruise - we're joining you!

We're booked with all of you on the Dream. It's our first ever cruise and we're doing it the Disney way! Three days on the cruise, followed by three days in the park in AofA Little Mermaid room. Flying from Philly in January...already stressing about weather. Pixie dust for no Nor'easter snow storms!!

We'd love to join the FE group.

DH and I will be celebrating January birthdays on the cruise. He'll be 44 January 15 and I turn 49 on the 28th. DD is 8 and DS is 6.

We're already working on door magnets and FE holders. We want to do our first cruise right!

Welcome!! Yay -- we are first time DCL cruisers. DH and I did a cruise about 10 years ago and enjoyed it. This will be our first DCL cruise and first time with kids!!

I will add you to the FE group, too.

We also are going to WDW afterwards but only 2 days at BLT and probably just spending the whole time in NFL and eating at BOG!

Me too! It'll be neat to keep a look out in the parks for our Cruisers.

Just went back to see the ages of the kids and it looks like there is some good variety and lots of overlap in age spans!

My girls love making new friends and are so looking forward to the Kids' Club areas. It will be nice to know that they'll already have Disfriends on board!

FYI -- here is a cute video of a DCL cruise from the eyes of a child

Cabin assignment

Just checked our reservation details and see they assigned us a cabin. We were booked GTY cat 7a. Now we're confirmed in cabin 8520. Looks like a good location, though it's very forward not midship (which, they say, is better if you're prone to seasickness). I'm already stocking up on the Bonine for myself and the kids. DH doesn't have a problem. Anyway, stateroom reviews for that cabin say it is super quiet and convenient to elevators. We're even more excited now to have an actual number. Makes it seem more real! Can't wait!!!
