That sounds like a great idea. I'd love it if Lorelei had several different kids she could know that will be at the clubs.

BUT! There are two others I can think of that have famous person names -
Charles Schulz Airport in Santa Rosa, California
Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans, Louisiana

Anyone know of more?

Paris is Charles de Gaulle, Bologna (Italy) is Guglielmo Marconi, Wroclaw (Poland) is Nicolaus Copernicus...I know there is more, but I can't remember them.

Count us in for the roaming Mickey!

Also, is anyone interested in doing a stateroom crawl? Basically "tour" one of each kind of room. I've never seen an ocean view stateroom and I'm sure other people would like to see other kinds as well. Anyone on the thread have a suite?

While I would be very much interested in seeing other types of cabins, like the oceanview or the navigator's verandah (or the suites ), DH is not so much in favour of having so many visitors in our stateroom since that means he would have to put his things way tidily for a change

So while I know this is not very helpful at all - I'd like to come see other cabins in a cabin crawl, but I couldn't open ours for many visitors. Sorry!

I have put the meet in the calendar on day 1 for "after lunch" for now, but if you all come up with something different, just let me know and I will update the calendar.

I have noticed on some of the longer cruises, people dress up for formal and semiformal nights. On our past longer cruises, Rich has worn a tux. He has a cute mickey cummerbund and tie. So what are the guys wearing for 1) Formal and 2) semiformal?

Josh rents a tux through Cruiseline Formalwear.

aan1701 & neg58- thanks for the feedback, especially on flight timing re: SNA & airline checking probably only for LAX - how does that work, anyways?

I did some more looking around and got a pretty good deal on Frontier out of SNA at 3:05 - now we don't have to rush around Monday morning! Unfortunately, we don't get to Indy til 11:18, but for the $$ we saved, I can't complain too much!

Regarding formal/semi-formal - we're casual folks & don't plan on going all out. Scott's probably wearing black dress pants & shoes, a white long sleeve shirt & Disney tie (he found a great Mexico-themed one on eBay last week!) and I'll wear a nice dress (but no heels!) . In fact, we're seriously thinking of skipping the second semi-formal - depends on the menu/restaurant.

We're hoping for a Palo brunch & will probably dress for that as we would for regular dinners - khakis and a polo/hawaiian shirt for him, a sundress or skirt/top combo for me - I assume that's "dressy" enough?

Formal/semiformal wear

Our last cruise was the first where we skipped formal/semiformal nights altogether ... And while I did feel a tiny bit like I was missing something which I had always enjoyed, the far more overwhelming feeling was relief at not having to log around those dresses, heels, ties, jacket ...

This time I am probably going to take at least one nice dress (not floor-length, though) and maybe a pair of heels, and DH is going to go with dark slacks, a dark polo shirt or short-sleeved white shirt, and dress shoes (he has worn those for a long time already and is probably going to chuck them at the end of the cruise, so more free luggage space for the homeward journey ).

Pretty casual, I know ... but at least we won't arrive in our swim wear

So this is weird, but are we having the same conversation about formal/informal on the Facebook page? Either that or I'm having MAJOR deja vu.

Do you guys do door magnets? Its one of my favorite ways to prepare for a Disney cruise. I have a big Toy Story themed door, but now I'm thinking of making another door theme so I can switch it out since this cruise is a little longer.
