Liz is right, and there's also a character breakfast from what I hear. That was a huge highlight of our December cruise! I was worried that the 6-night cruise wouldn't have it, but apparently it has to do with the number of sea days. Yay!!

One thing on the list of things to bring that you don't want to forget - a power strip! There is a severe shortage of plugs in the staterooms. The bathroom plugs only work for shavers.

Fish Extender

Hi Mageemommy,

I had tried sending you a message with all of my family info to join in the FE but I don't have enough posts to send it to you so I am just going to let you know here. So here it goes:

Amy (Me)- I love Mickey Mouse
Greg (Husband)
Olivia (6) - she loves Stitch and Bambi
Ashlyn (4) - she loves Princesses and Minnie
Broderick (2, he will be 3 the week after we get back) - he loves Mater and Lightning McQueen

I can't remember what else that you needed so please let me know. )

We are so excited to do this cruise (first time cruising for all of us) and we are surprising our kiddos...we aren't going to tell them what we are doing until we arrive at the doc...they don't even know that we are going on a trip yet. They will find that out the night before we leave when I ask them to pack their bags. ) I am trying to come up with ideas on what to say when we get on the plane, and then when the shuttle picks us up and takes us to the hotel for the night. Any ideas would be wonderful! )

So glad you guys are going us!! I put you on the list! How exciting surprising the kids! I wrote my kids a book ( with disney pics) last time I surprised them and had them read it as we pulled up to the airport. (I had already packed bags and just picked them up from school).
Another cute way is just to set up your character call and have Mickey tell them! There are so many fun ways to do it! They are going to be so excited no matter how you tell!

Getting into Galveston on Friday nights and sometimes later on Saturday morning can be a traffic jam. My parents have a condo there and since we are in Houston go quite often. Just give yourself plenty of time to be safe.

Hi! We just booked this today!!! Will be me (Mati), my DH (Joni), my DD (Sabrina - age 11), and my DS (Kai - age 8). This will be mine and kids third cruise, my DH's second with DCL.

We are also bringing along friends from Finland (my husband is Finnish). They have a 10 year old DD and 4 year old DS. This will be their first Disney cruise.

We are very excited and just now looking at excursions etc. Nothing settled yet but did book Palo Brunch!

We are from Austin so will drive over - most likely on Friday night.

Very excited and will try to keep it a secret from the kids until Valentine's day.

Glad to find the group!
Mati
