It appears the laws are that you may not purchase liquor on Sunday, and all liquor served in Galveston must be purchased in Texas, so we should expect a limited bar menu until we clear the 3-mile island radius to open water.

I called DCL and they confirmed that if you order a Bon Voyage package that includes any alcohol, it cannot be delivered to your room until the ship clears the 3-mile border.

The DCL agent did not have a specific policy warning of the BYO issues in Galveston and did not have any anecdotal evidence of troubles for BYO. She seemed to think we were just fine, that it was the ship that was constrained not individuals.

A quick scan of the various chat boards showed many people having issues, but all of them were non-DCL and there were even a few from DCL laughing at the others that had stuff confiscated.

Hopefully this was a red herring and we look to be good for BYO.

So whatcha bringing... I am thinking a bottle of Scotch, nothing fancy, and maybe Bourbon. Debating on rum and/or vodka for the girls. (We have 4 cabins)
No need to bring anything for me. I will be drinking frozen peach margaritas and link koolers.

Hi all,

I just reserved my first Disney Cruise a week ago and very new to this forum.
Been searching on the web for what to expect and what to plan for, I'm so glad I found this link. I would love to join the DIS meet n greet. Any words on how the FE work?

Thanks

Ps: do they have any church service ( mass) on board for Easter Sunday? Any thanks

Hello everyone!

My family just booked this cruise and we are excited. This is our first Disney cruise with our boys, Daniel (3) and Reed (2). I am interested to join the FE and am not sure if it's too late to join.

I am trying to catch up on the discussions but there are so many threads. I will continue to catch up if it's not too late to join. I'm hoping to find others with little toddlers!

We closed the first group of FE. But, there is still room in group two.

No school due to article wind chill. The kids will be so happy
Now I have to figure out if I am going to wake them up for their 7:30 orthodontist appointment or reschedule it.

Lucky!!! I teach and have been waiting for a snow day or cold day...no luck yet. Just love the random call that we can all sleep in and enjoy the day together. We had a great winter last year which meant no snow days. Hoping for at least one this year. No snow = a sad 5 yo.

Enjoy the wind chill day! I am holding my breath for no snow/ice until after Feb when we get back from my birthday weekend cruise. It's 25 here this morning with a wind chill of 19 I'm sure it's much colder in the north.

The first cold/snow day this year.

They were off yesterday for MLK.

ETA- It took the kids to their orthodontist appointment. I did not think it was that bad. My car said it was -1 degree. Wind Chill makes it -25.

We are in NE Ohio where it is a balmy 9º!! No school for any of the kiddos around here.

Two other answers I think I have- Disney Visa card saves 10% on merchandise over $50 at the parks.

There are two different church services on board- Catholic and Protestant.

I have learned how to make door magnets- I am sooo excited! That's what we've been doing with the long weekend. I think we'll have a different theme for every day. Cabin 6570-Come check us out.

And just found out my FE is in the mail (I cannot so worth a darn and didn't want it falling apart the first time someone put something in it - ).

My mom and I were in Santa Monica in Sept. (before our Disney Pixar Cruise).
It was cold. We were sitting around the fire-pit at Lowes in sweatshirts and long pants. We were freezing.
