That's great! I'm glad you booked the Pirates League.

We talked about taking our nephew with us, but my sister and BIL want to take him for his first time (WDW or cruise).

Hi all~
Hope everyone had Happy Holidays! I just wanted to let parents know that there is a facebook group for the kids created and if you're interested in having your kids mingle/chat/post prior to sailing they can join (it's just for our cruising date) It really does help to break the ice and the kids are excited to meet the new friends they've been connecting with online. Walking into a room full of strangers is now the most pleasant thing. It's right around the corner now Here is the link to the facebook for kids:

Does anyone else on the board have an 8-10 year old girl looking to make an email connection before the cruise? They could email or imessage a few times and then connect on the ship, so they have another friendly face. Please let me know if you have a DD who is interested and we can exchange addresses!
Hi,
I have two daughters, one is 7, the other will be 11 in March. My younger will definitely be in Oceaneers Club-Lab, and my older one may go back and forth. Both my girls would be happy to hear from your daughter. I can't PM you yet (not enough posts), but can you PM me and I'll reply with her email address?
Thanks!

Have fun surprising your son! We loved our surprise!

How fun for your DD! I'm a little surprised that one of my DD's classmates is going, mostly because our kids only have a few days off...the Friday before Pres. Day, then Mon. & Tues. So, we are taking DD out of school for 3 days. We do it because both DH and I teach, and we have the week off My cousin is coming with her family, and her kids don't have time off until March, so they are going to miss 6 days of school! We figure we better do it while they're young, right?!

We usually end up taking a friend of DD with us on trips, but we think we'll have to wait a few years to borrow a child for a vacation that is as far away as a cruise! It can be so hard to travel with an "only" child!

Since we are going to WDW for 3 nights prior to the cruise, DS is also missing 3 days of school. He's in Kindy and hasn't missed any school yet. Definitely better when they're still this young!

We've taken our older DD's friends with us before but they were in their teens. Hoping my sister will let us take my nephew on a trip in the future since they don't go away much. DS is pretty much an only child since his siblings are all adults (19, 21 and 24).

ok - I looked to quickly - they are already off the FE List -- Sorry!!!

Looks like POETICMOE might be the only additional ones left on FE - that had to pull out - that we might not know about.

a few suggestions

As someone who has done the FE about 7 times now might I make a few suggestions -

someone divide us into specific days so that everyone doesnt unload the first few days (the last day i wouldn't use because everyone is trying to pack up)

someone have a dry erase board in front of their cabin door (im happy to offer mine) in case someone has a cabin change at check-in (happens all the time) or if someone needs to leave the FE people a message. I can also leave an FE list outside my cabin incase someone forgets theirs.

Im super excited to go! This cruise will finally make us platinum after its completion : ) Everyone in my family agrees this is the best week of the entire year.

ps- does anyone have pin traders on the FE list?????

Just randomly looking at activities and noticed that cabana 20 on the adult beach is showing available if anyone is interested.

FE List

I'm trying to get organized and was going through both the spread sheet from Disney1430 and the list that Silmarg has made and now I have a couple of questions.....

1. Nikitta28's Friends (the Rasmussen Family) are in which room? The original message from Nikitta28 stated room 10016 but Silmarg shows 10046

2. Is MagruderMakes3 out? They are on the spreadsheet but not on Silmarg's list.

3. Our friends, TheChavezLuvDisney is DW,DH,DD9,DD7. On the spreadsheet it is ? & ? for Men and Women.....I just thought I'd clear that up!

Thank you Silmarg and Disney1430 for putting the FE list together, it is greatly appreciated

With such a giant ship, we don't do all of our FE deliveries in one day. Rather we do the 5th floor one night on the way to dinner, the 6th floor the next morning on the way to breakfast, 7th floor as we are heading to disembark for a port, etc. I feel like trying to do it all in one day would be a bit much--at least for my family. We like to spread it out.
