That's what I'm thinking. My cruise to-do list is a mile long. Glad I get to rebook on board for Gabby's graduation.

I'm finally working on the last half of my birthday at Disneyland.

Me too. We've got a countdown for days left of school which is 43. We've got a countdown to the girls seeing One Direction this summer which is 106. I'm hoping to add a *Disneyland for the holidays* countdown.

Its silly but it passes the time. We once did a 400 day Mickey head countdown to WDW. We used the entire basement wall.

Not silly at all...I rarely plan trips that far in advance but I do have my countdown clock going right now on my work PC to count down for my May trip.

Your F&G trip is almost just 3 weeks away! And I see your cruising for your 40th? What a wonderful way to celebrate.

Where are you staying during F&G?

I'm so excited! I need a vacation! I'm staying at OKW in May.

I decided I wanted to eat at Remy for my 40th (somehow those hot French waiters make aging easier!) so I booked a 4 night in October and I'm filling out the week at AKV for F&W (waitlisted at BLT).

I agree, not silly at all. I have countdowns for all my vacations that are currently booked, one is 514 days away. I just like seeing them all I hope you get that DL ticker!

I love OKW! It's so peaceful and I love the pastel colors and theme. It's a great resort.


Hot French waiters? I need to eat there too! That's going to be a blast! Where do you cruise out of and where are your ports? Will the cruise be before or after WDW in October?

I hope I get that ticker too. DH and I are discussing it. I can try for the GCV in May. I really need to add on there. In retrospect we should have bought there initially.

Where are you going in 514 days? I love seeing tickers too. I think I started one of my WDW trip reports at we'll over 500 days away. I guess it ended up to be more of a blog than pre-trip report.

Oh yeah, I love me some Remy now. I'm going to try to do both dinner and brunch. Dinner is the equivilant to V&A with both a French and American menu. The waiters are mostly French...I love the accent! I'm doing the 4 night on the Dream out of Port Canaveral with stops in Nassau and Castaway Cay. I am flying down on Saturday and the cruise leaves on Sunday. Since October in the Rockies is unpredictable and the time change, I always fly in the day before. I get off the cruise on Thursday and will be in WDW until I fly home on Sunday.

I'm so envious (in a good way), that sounds fantastic! Is Remy like Palo? It sounds even nicer. I haven't been to V&A but that also looks wonderful. Might have to try it on our next trip for just DH and myself.

Sounds like a great trip. It's smart to fly in the day before. That's what I'm planning to do when we cruise and fly into Miami a day early.

I just heard from a friend and she's headed to cruise to Mexico today on Carnival and forget her passport and birth certificate. I don't think they're going to allow her on. I'm getting DS a passport before the cruise. All the kids a getting them but he's the only who needs it as of now.

Oh no about your friend! No, I don't think they'll let her go. I hope I'm wrong and they figure it out.

My 514 countdown is for my transatlantic cruise next September.

Remy is "fancier" and more of an experience than Palo (I love them both!). I think Remy was 7-8 courses and about 3 hours. Definitely a good thing for a romantic couples trip.

Your friend is in trouble. I wonder if someone can express her documents to her or was she supposed to board today?

I think you are smart to get the passport. Too many things can happen...plus its good to have it as identification. My wallet was stolen last fall and my passport was critical to getting my driver's license replaced quickly.
