Christi and I have lost count overall, somewhere near 20 cruises. Certainly the best of those have been with Disney.
No, this is his wife, Debbie. This is our very first cruise - we have never cruised before! Are you a sportsman? Blue marlin? Chip is a tournament bass fisherman (not pro, just statewide).

Hey Debbie, I am a hunter not fisherman, the fish congregate near my hook since they know there is no danger. The deer, on the other hand, know to keep clear. I work with three bass-masters, and am involved in Scouting with another. One was featured on a Lake Erie fishing show, and the Scouting friend amazed me when he tweaked our boys' lines. They were not catching anything for the merit badge at summer camp, he re-rigged the lines and then the fish did not want to stay in the water anymore. Really cool to witness, since it is magic to me.

The Blue Marlin is a throwback to my swimming prowess.

Christi and I have been around the block a few times if you have questions.

Chip hunts as well - deer, ducks. Pretty much anything that walks. His true love is bass fishing, though. We're very excited about this cruise! I'm sure we'll have lots of questions - thanks for offering to help!

Thanks for reminding me to make reservations! Do you have any idea what time we should be getting to WDW on the 2nd? I know the itinerary says we should pull into Port Canaveral at 6:15, but it doesn't mention what time we'll leave the ship for WDW. I know it's about an hour from PC to WDW. Also, what time will the bus leave WDW to return to the ship?

I think the buses start running around 7 am. But, you will need to book your departure time through excursions. As a first time cruiser, you can book at 75 days out. 2-5 Disney cruise, 90 days, 6-10 cruises 100 days out. 11 or more cruises o r suites can book at 11o days.

You will have to see what times are available when your booking window opens.

Welcome! Only 130 days until this cruise! Yahoo

Erik is taking me to WDW tomorrow (wed-mon) to celebrate my 40th birthday which falls on Thanksgiving this year. WE have never been there during the holidays. I am looking forward to seeing the decorations and lights.

My mom is going to keep the kids.

We are back for our fantastic trip to WDW.

We loved the lights. Our favorite was Osborne lights. It was amazing!

We enjoyed the Candle light Processional. I am so glad that we were able to get a dinner package. People were lining up in the standby line at 1pm for the 5 pm show.
