So we looked it up. It seems the villians parties pop up on the transatlantic cruises because there are so many sea days. I dont expect to see one on this cruise. Too port intensive

Thanks for the feedback on the Magic Fountains. It was helpful. Still deciding what night we want to go. . I was initially wanting to go on our first night (Wednesday the 12th). And then my other thought is Thursday night after the first Renaissance meet-up night since the fountains don't start until 9p. If anyone else is interested in going that night, maybe we could go together as a small group. But thanks again to all who gave input.

I added the Meet information that's been planned so far to the June 15 Cruisers post in my sig line - also here: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=214. I'll be glad to add any more info / announcements as well.


We did Secret Mickeys with the kids when we did a Christmas cruise - it was fun. But for a trip like this one that's so port intensive and involves extensive travel to get there, we're just interested in doing the Fish Extenders (which we really enjoy - so fun to come back after a long day or wake up in the morning to find a surprise).

I just looked up the days / times for the Magic Fountains:

Operating hours from 30th April to 30th September:
Thursday to Sunday, 9pm – 11:30pm
Musical displays: 9pm, 9:30pm, 10pm, 10:30pm and 11pm

We were thinking we'd go when we got back from our cruise but we'll be back on a Tuesday. So if we go, we'll go Friday evening, June 14th. I know we'll be too tired on the 13th.

Thanks. Whoops, it was right in the book no shows Mon-Wed and I totally missed it. So Wednesday is out. And we can't go Friday because we need that evening to organize ourselves and Skype with our family before we are no longer available. Thursday it is for me. Thanks for the correction.

All the talk about the Magic Fountain makes me more anxious to go on the cruise.

When we went to see the Magic Fountain, I had no idea what the big deal was until I went.

It's unlike the Fountains in Las Vegas.

So many people show up, families, dates, tourists, etc. It's a very relaxed and beautiful site.

We were so tired from just arriving earlier in the day, but we had to keep up with the new time zone.

We didn't want to miss our time to leave for the cruiseship the next day.

I just remember thinking about how tired I was and the children were ready to go.

On the day that we were scheduled to check out the hotel, I remembered taking a taxi to the cruiseship even though it appeared that we could have walked to the port.

I am glad that we did, because that was a high bridge and we had 6 pieces of luggages.

Anyways, thanks for the memories!!!
