I have participated in two in my 14 cruises. The premise is the same, regardless how it is handled at the event. People offer to open their cabins so others can wander through and check out the space (no food, no drinks, just let your fellow passengers through) and the group travels together to do that. On one of our trips, they started on deck 2 and just wandered through as a group and our Wonder sailing started in the Promenade Lounge and again, they traveled through the ship together. Those that are willing to open their doors, can travel with the group and then get their door open for everyone, closing when everyone has gone through and then you just move on to the next cabin.

I've never heard of this either (but this is only our fourth cruise). We have an 11A (inside with the magical porthole)!

Oh my gosh, how exciting to book so last minute. Come on over to the f/b page (link is on page 17 I think) or someone can post (I'm supposed to be paying attention in class now, lol)! Lots of fun stuff happening.

I posted this on the FB page but I wanted to post here incase you don't come over there.

I sent the 1st group FE list by floor out tonight. I had all the rooms. SO if you don't get by tomorrow and you are in the 1st FE group please let me know.

Also, please check your info to make sure it is correct.

Hey there! So, I was just peaking around on the availability for our cruise and I found 2 category 9B (lower than you booked) cabins that are CONNECTED and are showing availability right now! They're down on Deck 2, rooms 2516 and 2518 - perhaps you could contact DCL and ask if they'd be willing to let you move to those rooms so you are connected, since you wouldn't be asking to upgrade rooms?

Scheduled events update for those who don't want to go back looking for it

Because not everyone has Facebook, or can’t access the full functionality, here are the events that are currently planned/finalized for our cruise:

Fantasy Cruisin’ with Mickey Group Meet
Description: Let's meet up on embarkation day to say hello to one another in person and start our fantastic cruise! Wristbands will be passed out at this meet also.
Date: Saturday, December 1, 2012
Time: 3:00 PM – 3:30 PM (before lifeboat drill)
Where: D Lounge on Deck 4 Mid-ship
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...lubs/d-lounge/


Royal Pajama Breakfast!
Description: Come enjoy breakfast with your fellow cruise mates in your jammies! Because nothing highlights the opulence and decadence of the Royal Court dining room like comfy flannel and feety pajamas!

The actual wearing pajamas is strongly encouraged, but is of course optional. The wearing of appropriate, family friendly clothing is NOT! (Dale, we're lookin' at you here kid)
Date: Sunday, December 2, 2012
Time: 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM
Where: Royal Court Dining Room, Deck 3 mid-ship
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...g/royal-court/


Lady's Night
Description: Meet up with the ladies of the cruise at Ooh La La
Date: Mondayday, December 3, 2012
Time: 10:30 PM – 1:30 AM
Where: Ooh La La, Europa District on Deck 4 Mid-ship
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...nges/ooh-lala/


Guy's Night
Description: Meet up with the guys of the cruise at O'Gill's Pub
Date: Mondayday, December 3, 2012
Time: 10:30 PM – 1:30 AM
Where: O'Gill's Pub, Europa District on Deck 4 Mid-ship
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...es/ogills-pub/


Morning Strolls with Friends
Description: Let's take a walk, shall we? With all the talk of food and weight loss and whatnot, I got to thinking about the fact that I’m going to NEED to make sure I’m getting some exercise in to burn off some of the extra delicious calories I’m going to be enjoying on this cruise. My plan has been to make sure I get some walking time in down on the walking track on deck 4. Trouble is, I KNOW how easy it is for me to talk myself out of exercise! So, I thought maybe, if anyone else was interested, we could plan a few “Strolling with friends” meets on-board. If other people are expecting me to arrive, I will be more likely to honor my commitment to others than I am to just doing what’s good for me on my own. Does this appeal to anyone else? Particularly on Sea Days when we won’t have excursions and such to get us off our butts?
Based on the general comments to the original post, we are proposing 2 times (sessions) to walk around the Deck 4 walking/running track: 6am and 8am. This will be very informal – just show up if you’d like to participate. We can meet up in/near the Vista Café on Deck 4 – it’s near both the walking track AND the “real coffee” Once the designated time hits, we’ll hit the track. Runners can run together, walkers can walk, whatever suits people’s needs and tastes. If you show up late, just wait near one of the doors until the group laps around and join in!

(I thought about making this Sea Days only, but not everyone is doing excursions, so if you WANT to participate on Port Days, the offer is out there)

Date: Daily, Sunday December 2 – Friday, December 7
Time: 2 sessions – 6:00 AM and 8:00 AM
Where: Deck 4 walking track – meet at Vista Café Deck 4
http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...es/vista-cafe/



Those are the ones I know of official.

Happy Wednesday, Everyone! It is 17 days until we set sail, and I couldn't wait for the weekend to post a countdown. Looking forward to pre-dinner cocktails that first evening.
