No worries about the kiddo's there will be LOTS to do with them. The pools, Nemo's water park, the kids clubs are AMAZING and will keep them busy if you need a break

Looks like we have quite a few 1st time cruisers on this cruise! How exciting!

This will be our 8th Disney Cruise, and we have been on all 4 ships now So if you have any questions please feel free to ask away.

There is PLENTY to do to keep everyone (no matter what age) busy - no worries!

Our friends that will be joining us on this cruise will also be cruising for the 1st time!

Talking Joining in

Hi everyone,

Just booked back to back; DS9 and DD6 wantedthe virtual portholes and DW and I wanted to try concierge service; so we are doing both! Heading to FB page. Sounds like we will have a great group and hope we are not too late to get in on the FE. This is first time on Dream, but 4th (and 5th) on DCL.

I had a large answer for you and the board timed me out before posting it!

Basically I had two links and three things to say...
http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-cruise-line/meets.htm
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1219607&page=2 (look at post #20 for gift ideas)

The first link has another link to a no-sew extender or if you want, you can go to ebay. Basically you need to be able to hook it onto the fish mail hook outside your stateroom. Ilikethe extenders which have a pocket for each member of the traveling party.

As far as what to put into them; it depends on how much money and time you want to spend (look at mamaholdyou.com for an example of going all out!) Many people put in a small item that commemorates the cruise like a magnet, or something that displays the disboard logo, or if it is over a holidaythey use that, or perhaps their hometown so you get a taste of their home. The second link has the breakdown from one cruise. I think the longer cruises typically have more participants and more "loot". This year we will be probably giving small gifts from Japan where we just finished living for 5 years.

Last item: Door decorations..look at the first link. Use magnets - If you use adhesives, DCL may charge you for repairs. We have a magnet for each cruise, each stay as DVC members, mouse ears to go on above the room numbers and a few family items. As a tip try to personalize the things so they are less likely to be stolen. We have never had a problem, but have heard of other who lost items.

I suggest you look over the links and if you think of specific questions; I will try to help out more.

Welcome Skelster and mom2maci! I've added you to the roll call. We haven't finalized FEs yet, so you got here in plenty of time.

mmieszczak - On my last DCL cruise, I made the single pouch FE that is no sew. It's made with a drawstring bag, iron tape and Disney ribbon. I am not crafty at all, and it was really easy. Everything can be purchased on ebay, and I paid less than $10.00 for the parts. I think it's in the links that skelster posted. If it's not and you are interested, I can send you a photo of mine.

Has anyone ever cruised with a child that was hesitant to be left alone in the kids' club? My DD(5) is fine being left at school, gymnastics, etc. But she usually has to be warmed up to the area and people there. We are planning on spending some time there with her during the open hours on the first day. But if anyone has tips about how they got their kids to stay...especially during dinner..I'm all ears. Thanks.

Jeni
