Doing the Parks

Hi! We just booked- five grandkids, two parents, two grandparents. The girls are 6 yr old ADORABLE twins and a pre-teen 12 1/2 yr old , and two boys, 8 and turning 10 on the Disney World day of the cruise!!! As far as the parks go, my husband and I easily do three parks in a day-- we haven't attempted four
Realize that you need to factor in bus transportation, esp to AK. 3=Monorail MK to Epcot and walk Epcot to DHS. A lot faster-- even on 62 yr old legs
Important to remember: if your 4 yo loves Fantasyland (and who doesn't?), that newest section opens this Dec 6 and it's gorgeous and fun. We were lucky enough to get to preview Belle and the Castle in Sept (a focus group) and by taking the little railroad at Main St you can get off at the new Fantasyland stop and end up at The Great Goofini and that whole Circus themed new area!!!!

Im hoping (fingers crossed) to be able to squeeze in all 4 parks. Im travelling by myself, and thinking that I'll be able to hit them all. I know Im crazy, BUT, I'll be able to crash later that night, and hopefully just chill out on the deck the next day.

Im thinking that, because I have saved so much money on not having to do an excursion, I will save some time and get a taxi from a park or two. Especially while coming and going from AK. It is so far out there.

Really starting to look forward to the cruise. JUST over 3 months now!!! Time is gonna fly by

Can't wait to hear about everyone's plans...
Hi there! More teens for the Vibe crew! Believe it or not, as awesome as the Vibe appears to be on the Dream & Fantasy my 2 boys (16 & about-to-be 15) both like it a lot better on the Magic. I think they like the more intimate, comfy feel. Or maybe it was the counselors. It surprises me, really. So yay for more of the Vibe crew!

Just Booked

Hello everyone. My husband and I just booked the 8 day cruise from Galveston on 1/18/13. We are surprising our two kids, a girl 7 and a boy 3.

This will be our first cruise. We went to Disney World last March and had a great time.

We are from Montana and I am sure we will be dying to get to a break from the cold winter in January.

We were debating on when to go but the recent deal that came out last week on kids sail free in January from Galveston sort of made our minds up.

(PS if you did not get this deal you should call the disney cruise line and ask if you can still get this deal, code is KFO)

I will be asking to join the facebook group also.

Look forward to talking to everyone and sharing in the excitement of our upcomming trip.

Got an even better deal for our younger dd this weekend. We found her a beautiful gown for $8 at our local thrift store. Yay!! Have fun shopping!! I just need to lose about 10 pounds to fit in my existing clothes comfortably...

We also just booked this as our first cruise with the kids (dd 9, ds 6, ds 4) sail free offer. Am thinking it will be a surprise for Christmas (if I can wait that long to tell them!)

First Cruise!!

Hi everyone! We booked last Thrusday for this cruise and could not be more excited!! There will be my husband James, myself Nikki, and our daughters Hailey 12, Maddison 5. We have been to Disney World once about 4 1/2 years ago but this will be our first cruise ever. Our travel agent and friend told me about this forum so I thought I would check it out! Please forgive me if I am not doing this right, like I said first time here

Thanks!
Nikki
