I was too scared to wait the 50 days to book them when we are on the Fantasy lol.
That's funny. We have an inside cabin for the New Year's cruise, but on the January 2 cruise we have 7120 :-) I thought long and hard about taking the 7120 for the New Year's cruise, but we decided since that cruise was more expensive than the Jan 2 one, that we would save some money and just end the b2b cruise with the nicer room :-)

So, do you want to participate in the FE for the New Year's cruise?

Lol too funny! I originally was going to go with an inside room, but I do like the peacefulness of my own verandah. I will get back to you on the FE, with the 3 cruises and the fact that we are paying luggage and I need at least a few small Christmas presents for DS I'm not sure how it will all play out, although the first cruise meet thread has 5 people counting myself (no FE set up yet), no meet thread for 2nd cruise, and very few here so it may be possible lol.

I was thinking that since the cruise is so short, the FE groups should be small, maybe cutting them off at 10 and then starting another. I've never participated in a FE in less than a 7 day cruise, but I think the time is so short that 10 would probably be a good number. We'll have to see what everyone thinks.

That sounds like a good number, I'm not crafty at all, can't even draw a straight stick figure lol, but I have been looking at things I could even possibly make that would be age/gender neutral and easily transportable. We are actually participating in our first ever FE on this next cruise and even splitting the list into 3 groups is a lot of stuff lol.

There are 26 cabins in our FE group for our May 11 Fantasy Cruise. Getting everything over there is going to be a challenge :-)

We had a total of about 51 cabins with 183 people that were split into smaller groups of about 16 cabins. They have even started a 4th list for the latecomers that already has 7 rooms I think. We are flying southwest so hopefully (even though i hate taking that much luggage) i can spread it out between our 4 suitcases and 2 carryons lol.

Great! I'll add you to the list. So far, I think there are only 3 of us, but then again, only four cabins have responded to this list :-) I'm sure there will be more before we go :-)

B2B2B Holiday Cruise

Hello all -

We just booked the triple threat, too! We are going to be on the Magic from Dec 22 until January 2. I am soooooo excited!

I am looking forward to getting to you know you all in the next 8 months and sharing the excitement with you as our sail date approaches!

I will be traveling with my DH - Dennis, DS - Scott (23), DDIL - Amanda (24), DD - Shelby (21), DS - Daniel (15), and DS Darrin (15).

We would like to join the FE if it is not too late!

That's great that you will be doing three! I'm just sad that so far, anyway, no one's b2bs are the same as ours. We will be on Dec 30 and Jan 2. Too much family at home to be gone over Christmas :-)

You're not too late for the FE at all! So far, there will be 4 cabins. I guess it is time, though for those of us who are part of the 4 to decide whether we want to set the FE groups at 10 and make as many of them as needed. For a 3 day cruise, this seems reasonable to me, but what do the rest of you think?

I like the idea of 10 cabins, and if I had known before I changed my airfare I coulda added 1 more cruise I was sad to see it went to Key West cause somehow we haven't made it there yet, but now my niece is getting married in Key Largo this summer so getting to Key West is going to happen!

Yeah, we were originally planning to go up to Orlando after we got off of the New Year's cruise on the Magic, and do another three day on the Dream, which also leaves on Jan 2. But when we found out the Magic was going to Key West and we would not have a completely duplicate trip if we just did a b2b on the Magic, we decided to do it that way instead. We are going on the Fantasy next week, and come December, the Magic will be the only Disney ship we haven't been on, so we are excited about that too!
