Cruise Documents arrived yesterday! I need to get busy packing we leave for Disney on the 31st and I don't want to be rushing around and scrambling all at the last minute this time!
*as this is standard practice for me for any trip to Florida! LOL

Our cruise documents arrived yesterday too! DH still won't let me start packing yet. We have to go out of town in a few weeks for a wedding, but when we return the suitcases are staying out!

We arrive the same day! We're so far away though, I'll be up at 6AM and won't be at our resort til 11-12 hours later. I will no doubt stay way later than planned for on 10/30 and regret it on 10/31 when my alarm goes off and I know that I'm still not ready.

Yay for weddings! We are headed for a quick trip to DLR this weekend (DH has a conference there, how convenient!). I wonder if I can keep the suitcases out... Its not like I'm have people coming both weekends before we leave. Who cares if there are random suitcases, FE gifts, and other assorted things just lying around everywhere?

Sometimes I hate posting from my phone because part of my post disappears and I don't know it until later. And what I posted didn't even really make sense!! I had to go back and edit my original post! LOL

What I was trying to say is I am totally infamous for running around and trying to pack at the very last second and that really isn't good for me and for my health. Stress is exceptionally bad for my health issues. When we went to FL back in July it was a good thing we had a late flight that day as I was packing my suitcase that afternoon and I was just dumping stuff into it!! I was going to be in FL for over two weeks so I needed a LOT of stuff. And I had to make sure I took my medical stuff that would be really hard to get down there as the equipment is sorta kinda expensive to replace on a whim and not really the kind you rent. Anyway, so I have started a rubbermaid bin and a clothes basket. Our summer is pretty much over here. I want to go, I just need to be organized is all!

floating on the Dream in November

Good evening friends? i am curious as to who is confirmed for Lou Mongello's WDW Cruise 2.0. my hubby and I are booked for those dates (the Dream on Nov 4 for 4 nights). in order to attend we had to use DVC points, so unfortunatly we are not eligible for his "extras". anyone else sailing on this?
it will be our second Disney Cruise. our first being the August weekend getaway on the Magic

Whoops - I'm sure that was helpful. Glad you have them before this time around!

Thanks for the reminder. I'm going to try and watch it today! I just pulled it up and can see it docked along with a carnival ship and also a royal carribbean ship - at least that is what it looks like!

Hi! Welcome to Disboards!

While DH and I are not a part of the WDW radio cruise, there are many on here that are part of the group! Also, you can check out the forums for WDW radio and find a thread of all the people that are going. Regardless of being a part of the group or not, everyone on here is getting very excited!

4 weeks from today!!!

I couldn't sleep so I read through some of the old posts tonite...

We will be at POP as well prior to the cruise!! We arrive at POP on the 31st! Maybe we will see you there...

Truth be told, I didn't know that I needed to return it until a trip we took in June and I realized its too big (it would easily go over the 50lb weight limit). So that means that I need to buy 2 wheeled (hopefully actually a spinner) suitcases. DH claims he'll use a duffel bag. I laugh because yes, I am an overpacker - but 11 days/10 nights, oh vey - the "problems" Disney vacations give us.

I also need to make my FE (learning to sew!!), and decide on the FE gifts. I actually started on some for some today. That's all the specifics I'm givin'!
I bought each of my DD's luggage from Kohl's for their Bdays the other year. They each got a different make because they wanted different colors/features. Shockingly, both of them had their luggage ripped by the airline on the first use!! I Would strongly recommend looking for one that has the protective rubber strips on the back side as that is where both cases were ripped. The airline agreed that it was their fault and covered the damage, but needless to say, my girls were very disappointed. One was so damaged is was not repairable, so her set no longer matches. The other suitcase, they fixed by adding those rubber strips to it so that it is now protected against that kind of damage in the future.

Oh cool! They have a website that lists that info? That's pretty neat.

One time when we were there, we were the first ship in and then several hours later, another arrived... seemed wierd that it arrived at such an unusual time but I guess there was a reason why, we just don't know.
