Oh we are so excited! I knew there had to be others going for Mardi GRAS! We are so excited about a ship sailing out of Galveston! We do Disney usually at least once a year - sometimes twice and the drive is so long! So glad we are only 5-6 hours from Galveston! This is our first cruise so we are super ready - my son pointed out today that we are almost under the 200 days left mark!

We live in Houma. Was born and raised in New Orleans and moved to Houma after college. We have been planning since last February and still get super excited every time the subject comes up! We just got back from getting passports. Is this your first Disney cruise?

Is it our first cruise with Disney. I had cruised with Carnival and my hubby with Carnival and Royal Carribean. I wasn't impressed with carnival so I'm hoping DCL is as fantastic as everyone says.

We're on this cruise as well with a big group from New Iberia. So excited to have a 4 instead of 14 hour drive!

Yes we are also excited about the short drive! We are glad we can leave Friday when the kids get out of school and drive over there without it taking the whole day!

Are you guys staying in Glaveston the night before? I was just wondering what kind of hotel prices you guys found? What I have found was really high! We looked in I think it was Texas city and it seemed to be almost half the price of staying in Galveston itself.

If you go to Galveston.com, they have a whole section devoted to cruising. Transfers, hotels, parking, etc.

It is our first cruise of any kind also! We are so supper excited! I have filled our fridge with magnets, made us cups, and I already have a box with things people suggested here on the dis!
Thanks for the tip about the Galveston website. I am going to check it out. We did book rooms in Texas City because they were a lot cheaper and we figure the earliest we could board would be 11am so we wouldn't need to worry about having a little drive in the morning.
Do you have children going? I have a DD11 and a DS15. We thought my son would maybe not be as excited because of his age, but I think he is more excited than the 11 year old!
