Hi all
My name is Sue and I will be cruising for my first time on this cruise. I will be with my daughter, her daughters aged 5 and 3, my daughter in law and her 3 oldest kids a daughter 12 and two sons aged 9 and 5. This is the first cruise for all of us. We are flying into Galveston the day before and leaving the day after so am interested in info re Galveston area also. Fun to find a group to talk to while planning as we are all sooooo very excited. My daughter has ordered two books on the cruise including the Passporters book.

Thanks I sent a friend request for FB and looked at the group list..so I added more info to my signature.
We are flying out of Milwaukee. It will be the first time flying for the kids also and this is their Christmas present so they do not know as yet that we are going. Tailor the 12 yr old was told last yr that we were looking into it, she did a lot of research and then was told that we just could not afford it this yr. She was very upset and it bothered me so I kept looking and found the trip from Galveston which was affordable to us. We will do "the great reveal" Christmas Eve my son says we will have to scrap her off the ceiling. I am having a very hard time keeping the secret.
We are in staterooms 6047 and 6049

Thanks for the welcome!

Unfortunately, we're not going to be (99%) able to make it. DH thinks he's going to secure a position he's been wanting, but won't have enough vacation days for this cruise. DD will most likely be going off to college in the fall, and we'll need to use two days to move her. The good news..we're still going out of Galveston on the Wonder, Thanksgiving 2013! I can't let the oppurtunity to drive get past us! I was looking forward to meeting everyone here, but maybe DCL will do so well that (eventually) they'll be semi-permanent here! Then we can possibly regroup.

Hope everyone has a MAGICal cruise!

We're on board!

Hi everyone--

We just booked this cruise tonight! I can't even believe it!

We went on our first Disney cruise just a few months ago on the Dream, for 5 days. We loved it and have planned on booking a 7-nighter on the Fantasy for 2014. (We still hope to do that).

Then I saw the announcement today for the Kids Sail Free for Galveston and we started looking at those cruises, then saw this 4-day cruise and the prices are pretty good! I called DH at work and asked him what he thought of it...and to my surprise he suggested we book it! I'm still in shock!

We live in the Dallas area so we can drive to Galveston. My kids will be 8, 5 and 2. My MIL is also joining us. We have 2 connecting inside cabins on Deck 2.

We'd love to participate in the FE!

Me--Nancy
DH--Brian
MIL--Pat
DS (8)--Nathan
DS (5)--Joshua
DD (2)--Alyssa

My head is spinning. Now we have to figure out what to do in Cozumel!

I hate you won't be on the cruise with us, but I'm sure you will have a blast on your cruise next year!! Getting your daughter settled in college is much more important!

Welcome!! It's so great to have you guys aboard!! I've added you to the Facebook group. Feel free to add your DH or MIL if they use Facebook. We are also on deck 2. We have never had an inside room, but I'm looking forward to quiet time with my hubby.

We also are not sure what we are going to do in Cozumel. I'm just excited and cannot believe we have less than 4 months!! Last cruise we booked 17 months in advanced so these months are going to fly by!!

Just found this board from Mrs Potato Head - I made it! We will be joining you - hubby and me. We have sailed a few other lines but have not tried Disney and are really looking forward to it!!! I sent a message to be added to the FB page too. We have sailed a bunch out of Galveston over the last 9 years so if I can help with any Galveston questions please ask. We also live about an hour away from there so go down and spend the night a few times a year. Debbie

Hi everyone! We just got back of the Magic this past Saturday and booked this cruise while we were onboard. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

It will be DH and myself in one cabin and my 84 year old Mum in another. We too are doing an inside stateroom for the first time, but the price is just too good to pass up! This will be our 5th Disney cruise and our 3rd on the Magic. We just LOVE the Magic, and we were nervous that after being on the Dream and the Fantasy that we wouldn't enjoy being on her so much, but we found it to be totally the opposite - she's still our favorite ship!

Being able to sail out of Galveston is like a dream come true. We left home at 9 am and were checking in by 11:10 am, and coming off the ship this past Saturday was a breeze. You can't beat being home by lunchtime with no flights involved!

We used Galveston Park and Cruise for this past week, but saw on their website that they aren't going to accommodate the passengers for the non-Saturday departure days in 2013. Does anyone have a recommendation of another place that is easy to use?

I'll go over to FB and join at some point, still trying to get work under control and fight the post-cruise blues! Nothing like having another cruise booked to beat that though!

Welcome aboard! I've added you to our roll call list

We've all discussed Lighthouse Parking http://www.lighthouseparking.org/ or EZ Cruise Parking http://ezcruiseparking.com/ on our facebook page. Not really sure as to why you should or shouldn't choose one over the other, I think basically it's just a matter of if they have a spot for us

It must be so nice to be home so soon!! That's awesome!
