Thanks Kellie - Here is the room numbers and details

Stateroom 2083 - 2 adults and 2 kids 2yr old & 4 yr old both Boys (Ethan & Chase) parents Gina and Joe

Stateroom 6068 - 2 adults Jackie and Joann (Mom / Grandma)

WE are still trying to get the how we are getting there figured out. Joe and the kids look like they will be driving - I will have to fly down due to work. But need to figure out getting from airport to port still.

If anyone has any experience from the airport to this port please let me know. We have always gone out of Port Canaveral.

Is it too late to join the FE exchange? My husband presented myself and our two kids this morning with this cruise as our Christmas gift :-) so I have been bursting at the seams to start researching fun things to do and inside scoops. We are first timers on Disney and would love to be involved in all the fun "behind the scenes" activities!

1st cruise, technically challenged - help :)

Wow! what a helpful site. This will we be our first Disney cruise and I am soooo technically challenged, just finding you guys is a huge relief.

I will be sailing with my hubby on Magic on 2/23 with my 2 boys ages 7 & 9.

What is FE, is it too late to join?

I feel like I'm late getting started on planning, anything I should be doing immediately?

ALL tips and suggestions will be greatly appreciated

I am so excited I can hardly sleep and it is still so far away, you'll recognize me because I will look like the walking dead... lol...

FB and so many other questions...

how do I find you on facebook? sorry for the "idiot" questions, my excitement FAR out ways my technical and cruise knowledge

I want to make this as "magical" as possible for my family, all advice greatly appreciated

my 7 and 9 year old boys want to do the Stingray City Snorkel in GC. I am nervous about their stingers/barbs, thoughts?

also trying to decide which would be more age appropriate and easier for the boys, Dolphin extreme swim and turtle farm in GC or Dolphin Push Pull Swmm in Cozumel, thoughts?

lunch and dinner at Palo or just dinner?

WELCOME!


The FE (Fish Extender) is a pocketed wall hangy thing that you hang on the fish that is outside of your stateroom door. The FE exchange is kinda like a secret santa exchange. Each person / family that participates buys or makes a small gift and puts it inside the Fish Extender for the other people in the group. The only rule is that if you participate, you do a gift of some type. It can be one gift per person in the stateroom. It can be one gift per family. You can do as much as one gift per day, per person OR one gift for the entire cruise for the entire family. By gift - it could be something as simple as a sticker for the kids. One lady in our group has talked about giving single serving bottles of wine. It all depends on your level of craftiness and/or budget. We have a big group so we are going to split the group into smaller groups of no more than 15 people.

I am a cruise newbie so any tips that I might be able to give would come straight from this site.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/482023015150401/ This should take you directly to our facebook group....just send a request to join and either Myself or Mishell will add you to the group.

I have no idea about excursions because this will be a first for my husband and I. Neither of us want to get in the water so our excursions don't involve water. If we ever bring the kids in the future, we will probably do dolphins or turtles....not sure which though.

We are doing dinner at Palo but I think most people recommend brunch. We aren't brunch people though...that menu doesn't really appeal to us, so we chose dinner. It will be my birthday dinner!

I would LOVE to go deep sea fishing but my husband would not. Since this is a (belated) honeymoon trip for us, we aren't going to be splitting up.

I just emailed my TA about booking this cruise. Is it too late to get in on the FE? Myself (38) and my daughter, Annabeth (4).

ETA: And if it's not too late, can we participate in all of the subgroups?

I booked IGT, but will let you know where we'll be when I get my room assignment. Hoping for pixie dust!

I requested access to the FB page. Just waiting to be approved.
