Port Adventures

Hey everyone! I am getting so excited!!! We just reserved our port adventure - we are going to do the dolphin experience at Chankanaab Park. Anyone else here signed up for that or been to Chankanaab before?

We have never done anything with dolphins before so we decided this one might be good - we will not be doing an actual swim or push but if we enjoy this then maybe next time we can try the swim thing next time. I have heard that Chankanaab is a good place to spend the day. I am just worried - will it be warm enough for us to be in the water all day in February?

83 more days and counting

We are also considering the dolphin excursion and park as well. We are booking directly with the park and taking a taxi over. My thoughts are that if it is very chilly, it won't matter too much because the time in water with the dolphins isn't terribly long. From the website it appears to have many things to do and see besides just the typical swimming and beach laying about.

For the FE exchange it looks like I should have posted our names:

Brenda (Disney fanatic!) (43)
Tim (husband) (40)

Kelly (DS) (36)
Jeramie (BIL) (37)

Can't wait to meet everyone!!

Brenda ºOº

So glad you are joining us for the cruise and the FE. Start your planning and if you have any question on it let me know, there is a lot of good stuff on the Dis. As soon as you know your stateroom you can let me know. We will probably use Jan 1 as a cutoff date to join the FE list. If anyone wants to join after that it will be up to the group or individuals if they can or want to add anymore to their list.

I am keeping a spreadsheet that is similar to the rollcall and as everyone gives me their staterooms I will add them to the list and close to the cutoff date, I will send a copy to everyone. You can PM me your room if you don't want to post it. At this time, and to the best of my memory everyone on the roll call has asked to be on the FE list so that will give everyone a general idea.

My kids are all excited and really counting down the days. Hope everyone is getting their turkey ready for Thursday. Have a good weekend!

Kids Sail Free

Hey Guys - just got an email from my travel agent - a Kids Sail Free promotion was just released for our cruise. I was already booked and she was able to redo everything and adjust our reservation - and she is now crediting my account $350. YEAH!!!!

If you booked with a travel agent - ask them about it - if you didn't and would like to visit with my travel agent - maybe she can help you out - I would be happy to get you her contact information.

Only 63 more days!

Hello! I just booked this cruise with the KFO promotion. We was originally booked on the March 15 cruise out of Galveston. However, when I saw this deal, I couldn't pass it up. We live in Houston so this will be perfect. Will have to take the kids out of school for 3 days (that's the only drawback). Love to hear from you guys!

Welcome!! Glad you are joining us.

Do you know if you want to join the FE list? It is still open for at least another month.

We are really getting close!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday. Now on to Christmas and then to Cozumel!

We would like to participate!

We will also be sailing on the Magic Feb. 1 thru 5. I have never participated in an FE exchange before, but would love to do so! I have two kiddos, so can they both participate? If so, I would like two spots in the exchange.

I tried to submit the link for our cruise, but I cannot get it to send the message with the link.

We are so glad you are joining us. For the FE you basically join as a cabin. So you and the kids would be one group. Usually cabins that have kids get a little extra just for the kids, but if you read back to my post #12, it tells a little about it. There are a lot of threads on the DISboards that tell about the FE itself how some do it, things that are made and received. Sometimes more information than one can process. Since you just joined the DIS, you need to talk to us for at least 10 posts for you to be able to do some of the extras, like PM and posting pics and such.

Looking forward to getting to know you and feel free to ask us any questions.

Hope the rest of the group is also getting excited with the date fast approaching.

If anyone's interested....I have a boy's pirate outfit that my son outgrew. He only wore it once on the Disney Dream. I would be happy to bring it on the ship if anyone wants it. (size 7) The entire outfit with accessories!

So glad y'all will be joining us for the cruise and the FE. I have done the FE on each of my three cruises and it is so much fun. If you have any questions please ask away. There are many threads on the DIS about the subject.

Good looking boy. Makes me wish my boy's were still that small. (Kinda!!)
