11 DAYS until we board the Mickey Boat!
I called DCL about the luggage tags this morning because I also thought it was weird - didn't sound like Disney. They said they were sent and they were waiting for me when I got home tonight - they sent them UPS. So now we can drop off our bags curbside like normal folks.

What's everyone else planning on doing?
We've been to Cozumel before so will take a pony cart to the main area and just walk around. Last time we found a lovely restaurant off the beaten path on a 2nd story with a beautiful view. The meal was delicious. As for Cayman, we will probably just walk around and go to the Historical Museum. Since we are from Florida we have tons of beach time, so that is nothing special. As for stingrays, we've been stung by them and have no desire to go see them at Stingray City!

Some people use the term "we" lightly. I have been stung. Twice. Liz is just creeped out by them.

The DCL reservation specialist was mistaken. We received our cruise docs today along with our luggage tags, via UPS. It's a bit ironic that they were sent special priority 3-day delivery... from about 10 miles away.

Allow for the possibility that Gracie will have the time of her life, charm the rest of the plane and make everyone smile. Even if your worst fears come to be, you will laugh about it later. You are only 3 once!

Lots of April 8 birthdays! How fun!

Just for the record, the Wonder is my favorite Disney ship. I haven't been on the Fantasy yet, but I doubt it would change my opinion. The older smaller ships are just more grand than the new big ones.

We have been on a few cruises with our kiddies, tweens and teens. I recommend parents encourage their children to at least try the club appropriate to their age group. They are all really fun. Each child is different. Some children "on the cusp" of the higher or lower age group might feel more comfortable with a different group. Say for instance, you have a 12 year old, who really fits in better with the teens, or has an older sibling they love to hang out with, walk them up to the Vibe, talk to the councilors and ask them to make an exception. If it is important, Disney will "make your dreams come true."

The Wonder is my favorite ship so far, too. We were on both the Dream and the Fantasy last year, and while they were both beautiful, they were just too darn big for me. (And my kids - two of them were totally overwhelmed)

And regarding the kids clubs - I totally agree - my oldest is on the cusp. If he hadn't already done the club/lab several times, I would send him there. But he has, and he's more comfortable around older kids than younger kids. We're going to talk to the counselors at the Edge and see what they say. He knows it's not a 100% certainty, but he's sure crossing a lot of fingers

6 days!!!!!



We're excited to try a classic ship. We absolutely loved the Dream but I've read tons of good things regarding the classics too. We're booked on the Fantasy already for next year so just need to find a way to get on the Magic too .

Also just found out a coworker has a good friend going on this cruise with a 10yo daughter and 6yo son. Small world sometimes.

I need to find a way to concentrate at work . Too much to get done before we leave......

Thanks for providing your family's names and I'll add them to the cruise roll call. Unfortunately, we closed the FE group a few weeks ago to make sure that everyone participating had enough time to prepare the gifts. However, we'd love to meet you and your family at one of our group meets.

Univ of Akron is a very good school and they had a great basketball team this year. Did you attend U of A?

We have sailed on the Magic for our first Disney cruise and LOVED the ship!! I'm sure we will love the Wonder as well. We booked a cruise on the Fantasy for December so we'll get to try out the bigger ships and new options that are available but I think we will always have great memories of the Magic and the great crew members we met during our first sailing.
