I can understand that. Every time when I was a kid I would make myself sick with excitement before our WDW trips. So now as a adult I just have the, what day do we leave? Attitude.

Just a little bistro right in the center of town. No we do not live there yet. We are in Santa Clarita at the moment but Heather works at the corporate office for the mouse in Glendale and Jackson will be starting school at ST. Francis Xavier in a special Tkindergarden program this Sept. So we are planning on moving to the burbank hills area within the next few years. We are gradually crawling out from under on her house which is a beautiful house but not in the area we need to be in.

Thanks. Isn't it really good? I love it. It's also really good with cream cheese and jelly.

I think i will post this on the 'big' Dis board. (if i can find it) Thanks!
There is no "leaders" of the meet and greet. We just all gather at Promenade Lounge at three and try to put some names with faces. There is sometimes some "business" taken care of, such as updating room numbers for the FE list or handing out lanyards if someone in the group is providing those, etc. DCL is not notified, but they read these boards and are well aware that it is common on most cruises for DIS members to gather here. I'ver never been to a DIS meet and greet where gifts, cookies and coffee were provided. Might be fun though! We usually get our first yummy drink of the cruise at the bar there at the Promenade lounge, get hugs from those we already know and make new friends.

We got our cruise docs too! Yeah, I'm always a little underwhelmed, this nice big notebook thing comes, and the cover is all pretty, and the luggage tags are right there!... but then the entire rest of the notebook is boring. I already know all that stuff.

Still working on all our details, and I have to ask- anybody have a brilliant solution for traveling with a kid who needs a car seat? We're going in circles- do we bring our own? (Airline damage! Storing it on the boat? Plus it's gigantic!) rent one with our rental car- but we're not getting a car in Miami- will we need one for a shuttle? (If its a bus no, if its a van maybe!) obviously we want baby to be safe, but I try to be a minimal packer as much as possible and this is driving me crazy. It's my last big detail. Urgh!

We've never brought a carseat. We always just make sure if we rent a car to get one included or if we use private service to let them know we need one. Whenever we take the DCL bus we just don't use one.

How old is the baby? If we are taking the plane and buses, we use the CARES Child Aviation Restraint System on the plane. It works very well for a child approx. 1-3 yrs. We got ours on ebay, but you can also rent them. And it is very small and packable.
