Okay, I've gone through everything!

Thank you for all of the welcomes!

I have not done ANYTHING booking or otherwise for this cruise yet. I've been working on our spring break trip and hope to finish those plans soon so I can move on!!!

Anyway...on to FE!!!!

For those who don't know what FE is I offer you this:
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...81&postcount=2

So...I think the easiest way for me to do this is to have you PM me the following information if you want to join in:

Board Name
First name of family members
Ages of children
Whether the child is a DS or a DD
Cabin Number (if you have it)

By PMing me, I will have all of the info in one place.

My plan is to create a spread sheet once the first wave of information comes in and then possibly attach a link to the front where the roll call is being kept! The spread sheet will be in order of room numbers (by floor) rather than alphabetical order. I think this helps when delivering FE!! If you don't have your room number yet.....NO WORRIES!!!

For now, let's see what we get and then we will go from there.

I always like to stress this one thing. DO NOT feel pressured to spend a lot of money, time or space. Even the simplest things such as Hershey Kisses give people joy. I know my kids love coming back to the room and just having something in their FE.

I don't think I missed anything. I will keep in touch!!

Yipeeeee!


NEW INFO 4/15:

* The FE list is now a link in my signature. Let me know if you have problems viewing or if I have made an error.
* If you have a special occasion occuring on the cruise (anniv. or b-day), you can give me that information as well.
* A cut off date will be set, but has not been determined as of yet. It will probably be in June.



UPDATE 5/21

FE UPDATE:

The cut-off deadline for FE will be JUNE 8, 2013! This gives people time to either order their FE or start making their FE. This means that JUNE 8, 2013 will be the last day that you can sign up to be a part of FE. Inevitably, someone will ask to join after that date. My usual response is: "You could join, but understand that you may not receive much in return (if anything). A lot of times people DO have extras, but NOTHING can be promised for you." Anyway.....we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

Cabin Numbers:
You may not have a cabin number as of yet. I have a handful that do not have them. You may receive your cabin number before our cruise (if so, get it to me asap), or you may not receive your cabin number before our cruise. You may have a cabin number today, but it may be changed. I will do my best to update before the cruise. I am not sure what kind of wi-fi I will get once I am in route. The wi-fi on the cruise is sometimes not the best. The best way for me to announce cabin changes on the cruise is on my cabin door. I will have a dry erase board with all cabin changes, etc. Please swing by my room and feel free to write your information on my board. There will also be pen and paper to leave me a note.


6/4 NEW INFORMATION:

NEW INFORMATION:

I wanted to mention that rather than have gifts distributed all on the first day, you might want to consider giving your gift on other days of the cruise. Some gifts are "for" the cruise and should be delivered on the first or second day. However, some gifts such as: keychain from your state, candy bar, etc. are gifts that "could" be delivered throughout the cruise. It is nice to find gifts throughout the cruise. This by no means is this mandatory. It is all up to the individual as to when you deliver gifts. I just like to always throw that out there as a suggestion!


6/6 NEW INFORMATION:

One other thing. This has been a problem in the past so I want to pass this information on. People have become so fond of our Fish Extenders that they bring their own, for their own use IE: mail, notes etc. Don't assume that if you see a fish extender that it is a fish extender on our list. You WILL run out of your fish gifts before you are finished with your rounds.


6/9 FE IS NOW CLOSED.

7/19 FE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Thank you to JKK who pointed out that my own room number was wrong. I am in 6606.

I am not leaving until Tuesday. I will keep updating on here until then. All cabin changes and a list of disboard names w/room numbers (not names,etc.) will be posted on my cabin door at 6606!!! I will also have extra copies of the entire list, which you can request by dialing my room and I will deliver it to yours. If your room changes please write the new information on my door. If you are delivering FE and can not find someone, chances are their room has changed and their new information will be on my door.

Also, in case you missed it, NewFamilyMan's room changed to 2148.

Safe travels everyone!!!

Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts on when they might show excursions for Dubrovnik and Venice?

I think the Baltic Sea Cruise spoiled me. I was kind of hoping for a ball at the Doge's Palace.

Doge palace

I found this on the doge's web page. I thought I'd pass it along.



SPECIAL OPENINGS OF THE DOGE’S PALACE

It’s possibile to visit the Doge’s Palace after the closing time, sending a request at least 5 working days before the desired data, to verify the availability for an extraordinary opening of the museum.

Conditions and costs: purchase of at least 15 tickets of 55,00 euros

Anybody thinking on getting a group together to go through Doge's Palace like KellyCanada has posted. I think my family of four would be in.

I emailed the palace to see if there were discounts for kids if 15 adults bought tickets. I'll post their response. Kelly.

Vatican Museum

Looks like Disney may have caught the crowded Vatican Museum scenario. All port excursions which include the Vatican Museum are not available on our cruise. I don't remeber seeing that bold fine print earlier.

Vatican Museum part II

I stand corrected... there are a couple "Selected Sailings" trips to the Vatican Museum and ours is one of two listed sailings. Disney may have some pull in negotiating the crowds
