My granddaughter lives in Santa Clarita. Maybe we should try and arrange a meet-up with the kids so they'll get to know each other before the cruise? You can meet my son and DIL.

Don't remember the stateroom # but if we do the FE, I'll post later. We did book concierge on Deck 12.

The weather was really quite nice...anything compared to an Iowa winter would fall into that category...lol! The first two days at sea and the excursion days were sunny, a bit windy but warm. The last sea day was absolutely fabulous...warm, sunny, little wind...perfect. On Castaway Cay day, the weather was dark/overcast and chilly in the morning. People were not lining up to get to the beach! My husband and I got off the ship around 10 a.m. and went over to Serenity Bay where it was VERY windy...water temp was chilly, but there were some brave souls splashing about on the family beach. Later in the afternoon, the clouds made way for sun and it became much warmer.

Honestly, I really don't think that we could have asked for better weather.

We could do that definitely. Summer and fall would be a good time to start.

We just sailed on the Disney Dream January 2 - 6. Weather was perfect. Captain even said the ocean was like a lake and temperatures 70-80 the whole time.

Cat V wait list came through! Yeah it's crazy but I've got about 8 months to save up, I'm only paying for 2, this is way cheaper than our 2 week Hawaii cruise, and who knows when I'll travel across country to get on a new Disney ship during an off season time again? Ok maybe after this I'll be dying to do it again,lol. So excited!

Can you explain what a Cat V wait list is? I'm so confused with all these anagrams, initials, categories!
