I'm so excited for you and please do post back!! I'm really eager to read some updates from the earlier sailings.

It's a Small Dis World After-All!

I would be more than happy to gush about my trip once I'm back. Lol. It will be fun to compaire notes with someone doing the same cruise this year
Which on that note, I presume someone from your cruise has already discovered and shared that they're not doing a Pirate night on the Alaska cruises anymore? It has been replaced by a Pixar night instead.

Hi Marise! Yes, small DIS world I can't wait for you to go and then come tell me all about it! Yes, isn't that an interesting "rumor about no more Pirate Night (or just our cruise?) and replacing with Pixar? On our sailing the Monsters University will PreMear at sea so I assumed that was the reason why but for all sailings? Wow. It would be nice to know ahead so we know if we need our pirate gear or not!

Heather!!

And I totally can’t wait to come back and talk all about it! Lol

My understanding is that they’re doing that substitution on all the Alaska cruises only because Alaska law doesn’t allow the fireworks at sea. I’m 90% certain that this substitution will take place as I confirmed the information with Disney.

Hmmm… I hadn’t heard of ‘Monsters University’. Great movie name though, totally peeks my interest! We’re hoping they’ll be showing Iron Man 3 since that will have just come out the week before we cruise.

Clearly you'll be able to give me an inside scoop after you return!!

Yep - you shouldn't have any issue with seeing Iron Man 3 since it's a Marvel movie and Disney owns them or has a major stake in them. I was able to see the Avengers on the Fantasy and I was *just* telling my DH last night - no need to see Iron Man 3 in the theaters, let's save a few $$ and see in on the ship! It'll probably still be playing for the 9/1 cruise too

I think I've been looking forward to my next cruise from the second I disembarked the ship on the last one! I'm already thinking about that delicious Palo souffle and those room service warm chocolate chip cookies

Has anyone started thinking about excursions yet?

Yuumy, the thought of warm chocolate chip cookies. I must try these. I haven't tried Palo. Last year was my first DCL cruise and I spent the time enjoying my niece and seeing her so filled with joy and happiness. This time I look forward to trying new things. Can't wait.

I am!! We have Alaska coming up soon which naturally I'm very excited for and this Dream sailing will be fun too! I get excited showing "others" their first DCL experience now and I'll have two friends with me for the Dream and can't wait to show them how beautiful she is!

Like a nut, I check in every day to my reservations and see if a cabin has been assigned. I know it's not likely until around day 50 but I check like a nut! I figure while I'm checking on being moved to main dining on our Alaska cruise, I can check for this cabin assignment too! I can't wait to see where us 7A GTY people end up!

Hello Heather,

I am looking forward to our cabin assignment to. I will be bringing my mom. She said she would never sail on Disney....no casino....blah blah blah So basically I told her Happy Birthday (August bday) and that she is booked and don't want to hear any more blah blah blah. I know she will love it and have a great time. I will be showing her around on the Dream too. My first DCL was on the Dream last Sept. We sailed Sept 9th and had an awesome time. I am in the same 7A Gty category as you. The first sailing I had and inside and believe it or not...Love It! I will love my balcony more since that is what I usually sail in....Looking forward to a great time

Cindi

I saw your post in the 'cruise secrets' threads and couldn't help but say hello.

Just want to say Hi! I switched to this date a while back with the 7A OBC deal just hadn't made it over here yet! I am traveling with my husband and 5-year-old daughter. This will be the first cruise for all of us. We are so excited and cannot wait!
