No, no déja vu I saw this one first but then reposted my answer when I also found this on Facebook ... I guess not everyone here is on Facebook as well.

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.




cool!

I think there are more folk who dress up on these longer cruises. Well from what I have noticed anyway. More tuxes generally but not every guy by any means. I like the chance to dress up as I am not a smart dressy person at all normally and you don't get the chance very often do you?

You get a wide range of clothing on formal and semi formal.

This is why we rent a tux onboard. As for heels... well, I don't remember the last time I wore heels. I pack folding slippers made out of shiny material and a pair of flip flops that have rhinstones on them. They take up barely any room and if one's dress is long enough, no one sees your shoes, anyway.

The dresses themselves are not any bigger than the rest of my clothes. Although I am seriously considering wearing my wedding dress this trip--ruby red ball gown with beading. I just don't know if it will look right without the crinoline.

We like to dress up as well. There are usually 2 formal nights and 1 semiformal. DH's tux and my cocktail dresses get put to good use.

On formal and semi formal nights the staff really go out their way to make the evening special. I think they appreciate it when we participate. I know I appreciate their effort and compliments.

We definitely dress up for formal/semiformal nites including Jackson. He loves to wear his tux. Its funny when we got him the tux we thought this is really silly but considering this is his third time wearing it we have more than got our moneies worth. On the other nights we do wear nice dinner clothes - I personally prefer dresses to pants also.

This cruise my husband is taking dress pants and a sports jacket for formal and semi . I will probably take a long dress and pants and jackets for semi . Luggage space is limited.

Spent the last two days at Disney . It was not crowded at all. Spent day at Animal Kingdom and ate at Tusker House. The food there this time I felt was not up to par

I am also in the "dresses are more comfortable than pants" camp, so I will be in dresses nearly if not all evenings. For formal nights my husband (Joe) is in a dark suit and I'm in a cocktail dress. For semi-formal Joe wears a sportcoat and slacks in a different color and I'm in a nice dress.

My packing trick is to use the same shoes for both formal nights. This cruise will be easier to pack for and things should be lighter b/c it will be mostly warm for the entire voyage - MUCH easier to pack for than a transatlantic.

Good! On our last Dream cruise it seemed like nobody really did them. I enjoy it and look forward to seeing them on my room - like a welcome home I guess - so I would do them no matter what. But its nice to know that others will be doing them.

Good to know. We used to go to Tusker House a lot back when it wasn't character dining. Did you do the breakfast or lunch? We always liked their seafood stew.

We would be interested in opening our room for a crawl. Are you volunteering to organize it?

We do the cruise line formalwear rental. It's so much easier than having to carry a tux and that way there's more room for my awesome dresses.

hmmm... kids the same age and you do the same shoe thing... maybe we're long lost sisters. I always just pack a pair of super light rhinestone flip flops for formal night and palo.

We rent the formal as well. DH wears a size 13 shoe. One pair alone takes up half the space in a rolling arryon. I can fit a pair of my shoes inside his.
