Really looking forward to the Disney experience and now on a reading binge to get all the info I can.

Anyway, it seems like FOREVER until August and I know the week will totally FLY by. But still sooooooooooo excited for our 5th DCL cruise. It's our 1st time on one of the new ships.

Every time they show the DCL commercial and the 'under the sea' tune plays on the steel drum sounding instrument, I actually have a physiological reaction. CANNOT WAIT!!!

Thanks for updating your info! I will update my list and upload it tonight!

You will see, once Spring finally is here to stay, time will just fly by and in no time it will be time to get on the ship.
Believe me, I am with you when it comes to the one week totally flying by - that's why we have another one to follow it up with (going back to back ) But no matter HOW long you stay on board, it is always too soon to leave again.

The new ships are beautiful, btw.

Decided to take our 4yo DD on our FIRST Disney cruise so here we are! Catching up on the lingo will be challenging but should/hopefully jive with other cruise talk!

Just now starting to get geared up and excited.

Ummmm sooooooo whats next... Fish Extenders?? Anyway... back to page 2 where I left off!! Hahahah

I am glad you found us and are willing to join in the chatter!
Your DD will love the kids club. We were lucky enough to be invited to join friends at the open house and it was just awesome there.
You really wish you were a child and could play there.

I will update my first post and put you on both of my lists!

Lists will be updated in a few minutes. You will see that the FE exchange is a lot of fun!

There are two adult only restaurants on board, if that is what you want to hear about.
There is Palo, which is an upscale Italian restaurant, which offers both brunch and dinner. There is an upcharge of $20 per person and it is strictly 18 and over.
The other adult only restaurant on board is Remy, which is French and even more strict when it comes to dress code.
Food at both is very good, but be aware that Remy charges $75,- for dinner per person (and offers a wine pairing for $99 per person). Lunch is $50 per person.

I have dining reviews in my February 2012 trip report (the link to those trip reports is in my signature).

Thanks! I love taking the wife out to nice places to eat... and here in SF there are plenty but we dont normally hit French cuisine. Sound like fun and since I am not a wine drinker per say and partake of nice, neat, straight aged liquids I always do find the pairings fun that I have participated on.

So if I showed up in a formal Mickey Mouse themed tux Id get booted?? Awwwww

Thanks for the info!!

I just realized you are from the SF area! One of my all time favourite cities!
Remy is fun (well, we got very good friends with our server who had married an Austrian girl who was on the ship as well) and the food was pretty good.

Oh, and I just realized that I missed that you wanted to know when you can book the adult restaurants.
As a new cruiser on DCL (did I miss something that you have already been on one of their ships?) you can book excursions and dining 75 days before we set sail.

Oh, and IF you decide to wear your Mickey themed tux, let me know what day you dine there, so we can see if you get in or not.

I have another question. When do you usually close the thread or joining of the FE group? The only reason I ask is we are going to be in Florida for a week prior to the cruise. I don't want to leave anyone out of the FE gifts, but I don't want to carry a ton of extra stuff either. So, I am just trying to figure out when I need to have the "final" count of people/staterooms.

Thanks so much!

Shelley

I usually close sign up to the FE about 6 weeks prior. So I am thinking of June 30th as a cut off date.
Like you we travel to the states about a week early and we need time to get our stuff together too!
