I can't speak for the Magic, as we have not been on her yet, but I'm pretty sure the Mickey slide on the Wonder ends in the Mickey pool. It is not next -to-it-but-separate, like the one in the picture.

On our Wonder cruise, there were plenty of parents in the Mickey pool, most with their little ones, but some not. In fact, when we first got on the ship there was on couple in the Mickey pool that seemed to think they were on the Love Boat. Definitely was not a "family friendly" scene.

Boy, I need this vacation so bad, the past two weeks have been the worst ever. My husband's grandpa passed away on Jan. 4 and then my grandpa passed away yesterday. I'm just plain exhausted and tired of crying and need to get away so badly. I am so thankful for something happy to look forward to and distract me a little.
So sorry for your loss I've lost both of my parents and grandparents over the years, so I can definitely relate to the sadness. It really does help to get busy with something, so I'm sure that getting ready for the cruise will just be the answer.

I'm sitting here at work, listening to Island Time radio on Live365, daydreaming about the cruise and completely blissed out. I can smell the coconut rum from here....

Hopefully that doesn't happen on our cruise!

Fatfish..We had similar experience at Coronado hotel at DW...MUCH worse though..there was a college spring break party at pool and hot tub...some had to get carried away in wheel chairs. I was once on an NCL cruise like that as well. NCL took appropriate measures to resolve our unhappiness...When I wrote a letter to Disney they said sorry and that was all. :-( I still love Disney though.
Hopefully this cruise will be free if these shenanigans. haha

I pointed the couple out to several cast members, but they did nothing. I honestly think they did not know what to do. So, I got in the pool while dd went down the Mickey slide. I ran back and forth across the pool splashing and yelling to dd. I did my best to make the pool as unromantic as possible. Luckily, other ppassengers were joining us at the pool at the time, and were equally rambunctious. It didn't take long after that for the couple to leave.

That is awesome! Who wants to get romantic with a bunch of kids around anyway?!?! Um, hello adult pool??? Or better yet - rainforest room steam shower! ;-)

Stephanne- I am so sorry for your losses!

The slide pic is Wonder. The new "Aquaduck" water slide is only on Dream and Fantasy. The slides on Wonder and Magic are geared to young children. I will try to find another cool ship pic to post later when I have more time.

Galveston fog in Jan / Feb delaying embarkment/disembarkment

Hi all:

Has anyone else seen this thread?

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3046725

Don't want to alarm anyone, but anyone travelling via their own air the last day of the cruise might want to check that their trip insurance covers "missed connections".

We're not affected because we fly out the next day.

Holy moly! That is a thread full of cranky people! I dread reading the posts from people who were delayed getting ON the ship! I'm definitely glad we heard about this. DH and I have already planned extra activities to do with our girls should we be delayed on departure day. we're fortunate to be driving so wont have to worry about rebooking anything. One thing is for sure, there would've been three missing passengers for a 10:30pm safety drill! They would've had to come hunt us down in our beds!

This makes me think of that sailing several years ago that couldn't sail into PC because of a hurricane. They came to Galveston to stock up on supplies but no one was allowed to get off the ship due to customs issues. They ended up extending their cruise by several days. Is it wrong that I would consider that a good thing?!?!

Pic-of-the-day!!! I'm surprised no one else has jumped in yet. The other cruise meets I've done have always done a count down with daily photos to drive us mad with anticipation... Please feel free to share your Disney pics!

Ok, I'll jump on the bandwagon. All my pics have people in them though and the last time we sailed was on the Dream so it's a little different but still makes me want to be back onboard NOW!



Gotta love Animator's Palette! And no, we do not make a habit of letting our children jump on their chairs during dinner, I promise. This was during the show and they told everyone to do it!

Y'all, Texas winter weather is very unpredictable. We can have 80 degrees and fog one day, and 33 degrees and sleet the next. While it is rare for Galveston to get as low as 33, its been about that overnight all week in Houston, which is where the airports are. Dallas was shut down by freezing rain earlier in the week. February is usually nicer weather than January, but the fog happens in warmer weather, not the cold weather. Many days the weather is beautiful 60 - 70 degrees, but anything is possible. I'm just saying to be prepared for any type of weather, and any complications it could cause. And bring your coats.
