All Aboard

Howdy All,

Long time lurker here. Very excited that my family has just booked the EBTA. We're a military family and very much looking forward to some time off after this last tour. We've cruised with Disney one time before back in 2004 so we expect things will have changed. Still, we can't wait to get going.

BTW, it'll be me, my wife, and our four girls, 15,13,9,7. Can't wait to get underway! Is it May yet?

As we get closer to sailing and if some of you are like me it also means a bit of shopping for a few new things for our vacation. Please feel free to share your great finds, coupon codes, free shipping codes and such. I love a great deal!!

One thing I will mention that I absolutely love for the girls. Lands End sells these awesome packable raincoats, packs into a pocket. They can be used for rain or as a windbreaker type layer.

Eddie Bauer sells a version for adults.

Those are great! But do we need raincoats??? I figure we'd just go inside if it rains haha. Does the rain in Spain stay mainly in the plain?

JP,

First, thank you and your family for their service! We appreciate all that your family has been willing to do!

B...Wow, 4 girls! And at some lovely ages Bless your wife even more dealing with home while you were gone! We have 4 kids, 3 girls and one boy so I know it wasn't easy.

One of our girls is turning 13 in March! She can't wait to get to the clubs Hopefully they will meet

It was windy and a little chilly with 6 days at sea and "no land in sight" in 2011, so they would be really great for that.
