Hey Deb, since you started the thread is it too soon to start putting together a list of Cabins and such like we used to do on the Member Cruises?

First time posting

Hi everyone....we met some "dispeeps" on our Fantasy cruise in February and booked this cruise to meet more people who share our enjoyment of Disney. So we too are booked on the Aug 4 Cruise and look forward to seeing and getting to know all those on the ship! So learning about Disboards, dispeeps and looking forward to this Cruise with all of you.

Hi disneymag! I wish you a warm to the DISboards! I will be happy to give you the background on the Dispeeps and my 2 cents on the Disboards. There were 19 of the "Dispeeps" on the February 16 sailing of the Fantasy. The current count for this Alaska sailing is 39 of us! Most of the Dispeeps group "met" here on the Disboards' DVC member cruise threads in 2010 & 2011. We were a very chatty group and talked about anything, everything, and nothing in particular, not just cruise related stuff. After a year of chatting on the DISboards before the cruise (13 threads ) we wound up becoming friends here, on the ship and in real life too. Now most of us try to cruise together or meet up at Disney World. The Dispeeps are not a cliquy, closed group or anything. Our motto is the more the merrier!

Like you, we all share an enjoyment of Disney. We like to have fun and make the most out of our cruise experience. I've run a couple of Pink Champagne Girl events, Pajama Party, Muppet Detective agency drinking game, Debbie and I have both run Fish Extender groups etc. I think Milford is toying with hosting a "wear your kilt" whiskey tasting meet for this cruise. I am planning on something brand new for this cruise I will announce what I have planned once I get confirmation from DCL that we can do it

My 2 cents on the the DISboards is Like anything else in life it is what you make of it. Getting to know and become friends with people on the cruise has really added to and made my cruise experiences THAT much more enjoyable. Winding up becoming friends in real life with some of these same people is priceless. So my advice is jump in with both feet and have fun!

Hi everyone! I'm about to book this cruise...since our schedule is entirely open next summer and we were thinking either a late July or early August cruise, I came here to see if there might be one cruise with an active DIS thread already...looks like I found it!!

I understand there are 39 people here already...we are 3 more, DH and myself, and our DD who will be 12 when we sail. Any other kids around her age? (She's 10 right now, will be 11 in May...)

Welcome to the Dis! I guess we weren't very inconspicuous, with our tiaras, feather boas and matching shirts.

I still have feathers in my luggage from that LOL

Yes, for sure. Ooooh Debbie ....

I'll give you a hint Karen. It's a twist on the Pink Champagne Girls meet. Think "Tink" instead of "pink" and no champagne but something more up my alley

Just popping in since I recently "subscribed" so I could get an email of responses. My daughter will be four and a half when we sail although her cousins (ages 11, 9 and 2 at the time) will be with us as well. Anyone else travelling with little ones?

I thought that looked cool! Debbie, didn't Junior say something about doing a zipline excursion in Alaska

Yes, Junior said something about doing a zipline....that would ONLY be Junior & Brandon. Emilee and I aren't seeking that much thrill!


We are hoping to go in a cople of days early and go to Whistler. I read somewhere (Trip Advisor ) that there were shuttles there and back.

Hi!!! Were you the one who was just a few staterooms down from us on deck 9? If so, how did your daughter and soon to be son in law like their t-shirts?

Hi there! My kids will be 14 & 11 when we sail. Our nephews will be with us...they will be 7, 5 & 2.

I'm really looking forward to this cruise....I've heard Alaska is so beautiful! And I can't wait to hang with my DISPeeps for another 7 night cruise!!

You, Junior and 5 kiddos?

J and I have talked about taking our nephews to Disney. But, we decided, if we do it, it's going to be to Disneyland. That way if things start going horribly wrong, we just toss them in the car and start the drive north. LOL I think I'd be terrified to have them with us on a cruise. No way to jump ship if things start going pear shaped.
