Thanks again

Thanks again to both of you, MissLiz and Hoppin, for keeping up with the lists. I really appreciate it.

I am so excited too, and every day, without fail, my 4 year old will ask, "Can we go to the Disney Cruise today?" She knows the date but says she "just CAN'T wait!" I feel the same way.

I would maybe like to try the Castaway 5K. I am not sure if I will have room in my suitcases for my running shoes. That may be the last minute decision maker.

I told the folks I had over for Super Bowl viewinhg about my FE obsession and they all just looked at me like I was crazy. I guess I am, but very happy in my madness.

BTW I had lunch on your side of town this past week . . Seed. Have you been? It was very good!
Thanks again!
Oh, trust me, it's been killing me!

I've never heard of Seed. I might have to look into that if it was good. We love to find new restaurants.

Disneywwjrb are from Aiken, South Carolina. Another southern mom, and I'm excited about the creativity running around on these posts. We went to Disney last week and my teenaged boys wore stuffed Stitch hats every day. You never got to old to flaunt your love for Disney, it seems!

Happy 60 Days and Counting!

Hi Cruisers!

I know I haven't been waiting for this trip as long as many of you ... but I'm giddy with excitement about this latest milestone!

To celebrate ... I've found this image (it has been used before) but thought it was a good one for us to use to help identify each other during our DISmeet onboard, as well as helping those participating in the FE exchange?! I was thinking everyone could download the image ... then use it as they'd prefer: a) Make stickers to wear that first day, once we are on board and meeting together, or if you're so inclined, make a t-shirt?! b) make a magnet for our cabin doors ... especially helpful for FE participants? I've figured out how to personalize these graphics on my own ... so I could work in the next 60 days, to add names for each family, even individual names, whatever you want!

Let me know what y'all think!? Have a happy Wednesday!
Lisa

I love the logo, very cute! On past cruises we have worn lime green leis to identify all the people for the meet. We have usually met in the lounge area since there never seemed to be a whole slew of people there. Can't wait to meet you all .

Very cute, Lisa! I like it!

You could also make it into a button to wear as well. I know I've seen some inexpensive button making kits at craft stores before.

I'm so ready for this trip! My FIL has decided to join us for the cruise. My DH asked him casually one day when he was on the phone with him and he decided to jump aboard. He booked the lowest inside stateroom category since it's just him in the stateroom, so he's got a GTY. I'm having fun checking it every day to see if his room has been assigned.

I placed my order for bows this week, so I can't wait to see how those turn out!

I may have talked my DH into leaving a little earlier than we planned, so we may be able to have dinner in Port Canaveral. It all depends on how my DD is doing in school at that time and if her teacher is okay with her missing a day.

Thanks Liz! A button is a great idea too ... anything to make it easy for everyone to be able to create at home! Again, I could add names, and home town, even DISname?! So we can match up familiar names to faces!!

Always fun to have grandparents along! My parents came from AZ for our WDW vacations when my kids were little ... wanted the kids to have that memory with them! My dad passed away a year ago, but he would have NEVER stepped foot on a ship! Maybe I'll be able to talk my mom into coming one day!?

Unfortunately we won't be leaving until school gets out on Friday ... it wouldn't be a problem for us, but our friend's daughter just can't miss her last class (perfect attendance will get her extra points on her final grade ... hard to intentionally pass that up!) I'm a little worried about the traffic heading south at the later time, but nothing else we can do! We have hotel reservations at the Country Inn and Suites. They have a Cruise Package, includes breakfast plus parking for the week of your cruise WITH a shuttle service to and from the port terminal! We discovered it in 2008 and it's a great deal!

Jennifer, I LOVE the idea of the lime green leis!! I'm new to this DISboard experience, so I definitely don't need to reinvent what is already known to work! I had mentioned to meet up on deck for our initial get together, because of the sheer number of people (I guess not everyone comes?), but having never been on the Fantasy, I'm definitely not familiar with ANYthing?! My thoughts were that if we were up on deck, and folks were still visiting, they wouldn't miss the sail away party, or the views of the port as we head out?! Anyone who knows better than I do ... please share your wisdom!!

Mallory and I are looking forward to meeting everyone too!

When we were on the Dream, we held the DisBoards meet in D Lounge. I assume there is one on the Fantasy? It's on Deck 3. We had the whole place to ourselves since the entertainment hadn't started yet in there, and very few people even walked by . We met at 3pm and visited for about 20-30 minutes, then left to get ready for the lifeboat drill.

Same thing on the Wonder. We have met in the Promenade Lounge and we had our own private meeting area .

I love the idea of lime green leis! It's something light and easy to squish into luggage, which is a plus for those of us flying in. I also LOVE the logo you designed, Lisa. I think it would make a great sticker or shirt, for those so inclined.

I, as a first time Disney cruiser, have no idea where to recommend. I am just going to be a follower on this cruise.
