I go through spurts where I have only a limited amount time to be on FB so I try to keep it to my family and close friends. I'll try to pop in here when I can, but I've found in the past I've had a hard time keeping up with fast paced threads.

We're having lovely spring weather here, but it's may rain next weekend. Sounds like the east coast is getting hit pretty bad.

I didn't flee! Don't do FB. I've been on vacation then trying to catch up at work. Now I'm trying to catch up with this thread.

During my vacation I was able to re-shop my reservation for this cruise. Saved some money, had my deposit reduced to 10%, and will be getting OBC from both DCL and my TA.

Excellent! I've done this once - it's a great feeling!!! (Now we typically have a dummy date booked ready to move.) Love the double OBC! On our cruise two weeks ago, it covered the base gratuities and Remy brunch with the champagne pairing!! OBC rocks!!!

Coldest March in the UK for 50 years according to the news.

Good comparison. Maybe that's why I just don't get the whole FB thing.

We got a ton of snow this weekend but it's now starting to melt off. This Thursday we get to find out what we are having and then next Thursday we leave for WDW and then our cruise on the Fantasy! It's going to be a busy couple of weeks for me.

I am on the FB thread, but check this more frequently. Too many posts to keep up with there .

I am mostly a lurker here but I will post about the snow/weather. We had snow on Sunday - not much, an inch or two - but so cold. The kids are on spring break this week and it is just as cold as winter break. I am so over winter, I have been composing a letter in my head. It goes something like this:

Dear Canada,

You have been very generous with the cold, biting winds, snow, and single degree highs this year. Please feel free to stop giving. You can even have some of it back.

Sincerely,
The Upper Midwest and Northeast United States


I am not on Facebook, so I have no idea what goes on over there. I follow this thread but don't post much. I am really trying not to dwell on this cruise much because I have been waiting and waiting for this itinerary and would love to do it. We have cabins booked but it will be my son's first year of High School and I am afraid it will not work out to take him out of school for a week. But who knows, maybe I will enroll him for online courses by High School anyway and then it wont matter.

I joined the FB group because I'm on FB far more than the DIS. I "lurk" just as much there as I do here. I guess I really prefer it now because I don't feel like anyone is counting how many times I post there. I like that FB is laid out in a way that I can skim through and get important information about ports. People can jump in at anytime and not have to read 30+ pages to understand who is who. All in all, I don't understand the big deal who posts where. It's just a cruise.

we ended up with 14.5 inches of snow on Sunday during our late "winter" storm; it's rare for this area to get that much snow at one time. It's already starting to melt off, which is good since we had such a bad drought last year - the Missouri and the Mississippi are starting to look like real rivers again.

I prefer FB for the reasons that Jusacuz posted - easier to navigate and find information and not nearly the censorship you find around the DIS. But to each his / her own ... we don't typically participate in many group meets anyway. I just like chatting and sharing ideas and info with fellow cruisers.

I've been following both places, only because the FB page is there. I agree that ideally it would be great to keep all discussion in one place, but there are advantages and disadvantages to both. FB is easier for those on the go. I can follow it on my phone, my tablet or whatever. The DIS app is okay, but has its limits. I find I don't spend as much time on the DIS as I used to, mostly I come here for specific information and I follow some TV fan threads, but sometimes the DIS is frustrating because it isn't always the welcoming place it used to be. It's become much more judgmental and it's a pity, since there are people discovering Disney and the DIS for the first time and don't know there are 'taboo' subjects or things that many of us take for granted. But then FB has its issues too. It constantly changes and people worry about privacy issues. SO, I guess there is no simple solution. The best we can do is ask that those of us who follow both, make sure that any pertinent information is shared in both places. And please, when we do meet, let's all be welcoming to everyone.

This is obviously going to be a very big group and it will be natural for people to gravitate to others with like interests, so it will be difficult for everybody to reach out to everybody else. Either way, this is shaping up to be one heck of a group and should be loads of fun. I can't believe it's still a year and a half away.
