We are from Indiana and driving to Chicago to fly into Bush airport staying there and using ground transportation from there. Im paying off our balance for cruise this Friday and my travel agent is booking our Cabana at CC Dec 1st. Last year we had a Cabana with our Make a Wish cruise and cant resist this time. My husband and I leave on a Carnival cruise next week and Im curious how it compares to Disney...pretty sure no one can top Disney

New to DCL and WDW

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited about our very first cruise in march. My husband and I are giving this as a gift to our girls, 2 and 7, for Christmas. It will also be my daughter 8th when we go. If anyone has any tips for the trips, ideas on how to surprise the girls or information on how to participate in the fish extender I would greatly appreciate it. This will also be our first trip to disneyworld!

Thanks!

At Castaway Cay our daughter wants to do the stingray experience and I figured we would just relax the rest of the time.
For PC, DD and I are going to WDW, while DH goes to Kennedy Space Center. We've spent A LOT of time at Disneyland, so I thought Epcot and Animal Kingdom would be the best use of our time as far as experiencing something different.
Our time in Key West is so short I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do. Anyone who's been there before have any ideas? DD will be 8.
We loved the Old Town Trolley last time we were in Key West! It was a great, inexpensive way to see the entire island and travel between the best points of interest. Look into buying tickets ahead of time on the Old Town Trolley website; you can probably get a discount. I think when we bought ours two Februarys ago, it was 1/2 price for kids!

Made full payment a couple weeks back and booked flights this morning. Flying in to IAH on Wed. Feb. 27. Planning to spend a night in the Houston area to visit the sites (zoo, kids' museum & NASA - looking for other suggestions) and a pre-cruise night in Galveston.

Rental car is a nightmare (no where to return in Galveston).

We just earned Gold Castaway Club this year. We have only been on the Magic & Wonder (Caribbean twice, Bahamas, Med. & Mexican Riviera).

Looking for a pre-cruise email pal for our 4yo DS (he turns 5 in January).
WeLcOmE!!!! :-)

Hi, and welcome! I can add you to the FE group. :-) For info on "how it works" please scroll back and see my earlier post. I will send you a private message to get additional info on your family, then compile a list for everyone who is participating.

What a fun idea! This is so not my husband's cup of tea, but I would definitely join in. Or maybe we can get a group of ladies together for the Palo tea?

Hi and WELCOME! So many firsts, how exciting!! I posted a page or two back on details about the Fish Extender, but please let me know if you have any specific questions. So glad you'll be participating! As for WDW, I could fill an entire thread with tips but the best one I can give you is this: Get an "Unofficial Guide" and sign up for the "Lines" app on your smartphone. You will be glad you did!
