It's new edition is the 10th edition available on Amazon.com for pre-order (November 13 is the publish date) or you can also visit their website http://www.passporter.com/disney-cruises/home.html


I can't imagine any Disney-related trip without a Passporter... it makes me feel like the most organized person on earth! Lol. Love that thing!! I have had the deluxe binder version for probably 10 years, and it's so convenient to just remove whatever pages don't apply and keep the pertinent stuff in. Love the Passporter!!!



Edit: Just wanted to add that I'm not sure why Amazon still has it only for pre-order, but if you get it straight from the Passporter site it's in stock and available. Plus, if you're registered on the message boards there, you get 30%off! I always order direct from them.

It is listed under "My Cruise Activities" - I think this opens up after you are paid in full and when your booking window opens. It is listed as a "Ship Activity" on Day 6.

OK, thank you. I'm not paid in full yet, so I can't see it yet. I will be next week though.

I am looking forward to the new Test Track too. Can’t wait to see what busses are left on the 17th of November.

Dismom73 – Glad to see that your husband will not have you jumping ship.

FEE- I sent PM’s to those that I have down for participating in the FEE. The PM had a link to the Google doc sheet I set up with the information I had collected. Thank you Gina for suggesting that. Everyone should be able to update their information there if I made any mistakes or if any changes happen. Plus, you will now have the list of those that are participating. We are at 10 cabins (8 families) right now. If anyone else would like to join in the fun, send me a PM and I will add you to the list and get you the link.

okay so we caved last night and told our son.. He is so excited. His first question was "are my cousins Ashley, Bailey, and Riley coming". We have so much fun cruising with dismom and her family. No we can start making magnets for the doors, and working on our fish extender gifts. So much to do so little time.

Ah! That is so sweet Laura. My kids are also close to their cousins, but I am yet to get them on a cruise with us.

I think I have my Fish Extender gifts all planned out now and hope to get busy on them this weekend.

The girls are so excited too (especially Bailey). I started looking at magnets yesterday. Bailey found her cheerleader Minnie Mouse one from the last cruise and it got her even more excited.

My oldest DD just left this morning for her very first solo Disney trip. She is flying down to Long Beach to stay with a friend for the weekend in the dorms and they will be going to DL from opening to closing tomorrow and then she is flying home Sunday morning. I guess I passed on my love/obsession for Disney.

I think my brother and Laura thought we were crazy (you know you did Laura ) doing all these Disney cruises, then we got them on one and haven't been able to shake them since...totally kidding, but they are well on their way to becoming Gold(only one more after this one). I'm not sure who has more fun, the cousins or the adults.

Thank you so much for all your work on the spreadsheet for the FE! It is much appreciated.

Is this her first time flying by herself? How is mom doing with this?

Yes it is/was. She made it down yesterday. They are spending all day today in DL and she will try for the 10am flight tomorrow morning. I'm ok, since she made it. She knows her way around DL better than she does Vacaville. I'm not sure how I will be tomorrow, since she is flying stand by and I will not be near a computer if she gets stuck. So, say a prayer she gets on the flight.

Hi Dismom73,

We are from San Jose. We try to avoid SFO, but wanted a direct flight. We'll be flying United out of SFO. I also signed-up for the United Visa to get two free checked bags and priority boarding. We're on the 12:55pm flight on Thursday. That is really nice that you get free parking!
