Welcome, RopeDrop! I also have a DD11 going on the cruise. If your dd would like a penpal, let me know. I think you need 10 posts before you can send a private message. Not sure if you're able to receive them, but I can try sending you the contact info if you're interested.

Thank you! Like I said...this was a spontaneous thing today when I did a search for Fish Extenders because I didn't know what they were! When it comes to WDW, I'm a pro, but a big 'ol novice on the cruises.

Reading other threads I just realized that I missed out on the FE group. Boo. But my daughter would love a penpal.

I'll do some reading and see where I can tack in 6 more posts.

Libertyville! Right up the road. So happy to hear that there will be teens around the twin's age. They met some great kids on our last trip.

Can't wait to read everyone's posts in this thread as we are on the cruise with all of you!

It is me, DH, our twins (girls) 15, and our youngest DD11.

It's our second cruise and we are beyond excited to get back on the Dream. I will read everything here but I wanted to get one post on the board. Would love to meet some of you, especially if you have teenagers or a tween.
My daughter and her DBF are both 15. I'm sure they would love to meet you daughters. They are both really excited to check out Vibe on the ship. DH and I will probably only see them at dinner or planned excursions. :rolls eyes:

Called DCL this morning and they are sending new luggage tags for free!!!

I did find it odd that when I called yesterday and today, neither CM asked me security questions address/DOB/etc. after giving the reservation number..odd.

If you send me your dd name and fav character I can slip her into my list of goodies to deliver. My dd is 10&1/2 and is wondering why everyone is 11. I thought briefly about fudging her bd but thought better of it, seem as how it's on her passport lol!

Hi everyone! Can't wait for sail date! So much so that I'm wondering whether we really needed to do the ten days at the parks before it...Actually it's my 40th birthday so $@&! Yes we're doing the parks! I'm a Disney nut bar! My dd is 10&1/2 and looking for pen pals. We've reached out to a couple of lovely 11 year olds but are worried they may not let her into the edge.

PM me. DD is 11, but we are also traveling with friends who have an almost (2 months shy) 11 year old. If she's not allowed in the Edge with our DD, then our DD will be in the Lab.

What a coincidence! Where do your twins go to school? My DD is a junior at Stevenson. I also have twin 13 year old boys.

Jenn, Hopefully your DD will get into Edge, but if not I think there are some Edge activities that are open to all that she could still join! Could anybody verify that?

OK, off work and managed to read most of the posts and contact a few of you with kids in my daughters' age groups. I may be slow to arrive, but I hit the ground running.

Just didn't know how popular it was to dress up because I might head to MK this weekend or next and find some Pirate Ts before my CM 40% discount vanishes!

Thanks!
We did last time and had a great time. Nothing crazy, but we all looked piratey Arrgh!

Haven't been to Atlantis yet. That's on this year's agenda!
I'm wondering about Atlantis as well. I think we might wear the suits with shorts and shirts over it because we won't want waste time...we'll see.

That sounds great. I'll try to find a picture and figure out how to post it. I loved everyone else's photos.

Darn. But I was actually thinking that if that FE group is closed, I really wouldn't mind grouping up some other last minute-type people that might want to do something a little less formal? We've never done it before, my kids would love anything they got and it's only 4 nights right? We have 3 weeks. I was planning to get a few little trinkets for my girls and just do that, but if there are a few people interested, let me know. I'm game to give it a try.

Great to meet you and thank you for letting me know about the 10 posts!

I think that covers what I wanted to say.

Libertyville High School. My DDs have played Stevenson a few times in basketball. I hope to see you all at the meet and greet.

My DD was 1.5 months from her 11th birthday last year and they said absolutely no way about going into the Edge.

The kids are allowed to go the younger clubs to be with siblings or just because they like it, but DCL are big sticklers about moving up. Ultimately it was fine because she enjoyed the activities in the Lab. There may be a few group activities that everyone can join though.
