Hi Everyone! I'm Becca and this is my first time posting (not even sure if I'm putting it in the right place). Our adventure on the Disney Dream in May will be my family's very first cruise. I'll be part of a larger group (including Amanda and Steve who are already on here), with DH Jason, DS Sam (4.5) and DD Lily (2). We're so excited for our first cruise - it will be my DH and kids' first time in Florida! We definitely want to do the FE thing, although we're still working out how it all works - I think I signed up correctly. Can't wait to meet you all in a few months!

On our cruise last year there was also a crawling race called "Jack Jack's Diaper Dash" in the atrium. It was so entertaining that my teenagers wanted to watch it. You might look into that for your cousin's 7 month old.

Another option is to take your kids to the open house at the Oceaneer's Club when they have those. You can stay and play with your children there.

You might also want to bring some small favorite toys from home to entertain her in the stateroom while you're getting dressed for dinners, or even to bring to the dinner meals, which can stretch out to 1 1/2 or 2 hours. I remember those days with little ones and I miss them!
Thanks Jdismom.

We can't wait. We want to do everything and nothing all at the same time We decided we are going to take it easy and go with the flow since we are travelling with all the kids. We have the backpack already to bring her favorite toys I think we ahve to look into that Diaper Dash for a good laugh.
These baby days are flying by and I am doing everything I can to keep them but they wont co-operate, they just keep growing and getting big

I'm already working on our family cruise door magnets- Now I need to start working on what to do for the FE - and what kind of FE hanger or is it holder (still learning) I want for our door.

Any ideas????

I was also wondering is anyone meeting up on the cruise just to say hi?

Thanks,

Welcome to the Disboards and our cruise group, beccakoering! You picked a great ship for your first cruise.

mystyfur, as far as fish extenders go, you can really use anything you want that can hang on the fish (or seahorse) outside the stateroom door. On the 2nd page of this thread Stacey posted a link which has pictures of "official" FEs. Some people make their own. I don't sew, so I bought mine on ebay. Most have pockets for each family member.

Last year one of the families in our FE group had a 2 year old who wanted her gifts to be put in a treasure chest. So their FE was a treasure chest they had made hanging on a ribbon outside their door.

I know other people have used tote bags. You just have to watch the dimensions, so they don't interfer with the doorway.

I think Stacey is still leaving the voting open for 1 more day about whether to split the group or not. I'm sure we'll find out soon.

And nobody has talked about a meet on the cruise itself yet. I think that is sort of hard to do. We arranged one last year, but it was right before the sail away party, which was held inside due to weather. Those of us who did meet out on the deck were the ones without small kids who didn't mind missing the party.

I do have a green Dis tag (which someone made for us all and handed out at our meet). I will probably wear that on my lanyard so people will know I'm from the Dis boards. I'm going to be with 20 family members all wearing matching red, blue and yellow shirts we had made for the cruise the first day. If any of you sees that group, you can look for me with them. I wouldn't mind meeting other Disers!

Hi all! Just finished booking our first cruise and soaking up as much information as I can. We are huge disney fans, DVC members but this is our first cruise of any kind!. DD has no idea we are going on a cruise. She'll find out the morning of the 26th when goofy calls her cell phone if all works as planned. We always try to keep at least one secret each trip -this is a tough one.
