Welcome Aboard!!

We live in IL in a small town about 90 miles from Chicago. I work in sales operations for a hunting company that some might have heard of, Hard Core Brands and Bone Collector (also a TV show). My husband is a finance manager for a car dealer. We are traveling without our 10 year old for a quick getaway for our 12th Anniversary.

This is our 4th cruise and our 3rd with Disney. We have been on the Dream twice and are excited to try the original ships now. We have the Fantasy booked for next July as a reunion cruise with friends we made on our last Dream cruise.

I introduced my kids in a previous post. They are involved in lots between dance , running, swimming, and Boy Scouts. It is hard to believe my oldest will be graduating at the end of next year. We will be celebrating early a 16 year birthday and graduation. I looked at summer cruises but the prices are crazy and with schedules it is hard to find a time.

I am a special education teacher at a high school and my husband is a manager at a local grocery store. This will be our third Disney cruise. Previous two trips were on the Wonder so I think we will adjust easy to the Magic.

I look forward to getting to know everyone. Hopefully activity on this thread will pick up in the next few months.

Until a few days ago, we didn't even have a thread... I have been wondering where everyone is! It's is actually the 4th cruise for Mark and I. We sailed in NCL on our honeymoon...almost 18 years ago!!!! When did we get old???? I like that line, although its hard to remember a lot of details. I have been very impressed with DCL, and though we have looked at other lines, we keep coming back!

I am starting to plan the universal part of the trip. Any experience with this? It is hard with a family of 5. We have been spoiled by resorts and prefer not to squish into a hotel room. Starting to look and feeling overwhelmed.

Absolutely NONE!!! LOL!!! As ay times as we have been to Orlando, we have never gone to Universal... I am interested in doing it at some point, especially with Harry Potter stuff. It just seems like we spend a lot of $$$ to go to WDW... I ave friends who stayed at the Nickelodeon Hotel and liked it.

We stayed at Hard Rock in 2010 when we went. We loved the room and location, but we only had 3. If I remember correctly they had suites.

Glad that we found some fellow cruisers! I booked this cruise for my DH and I and was hoping for an adult only trip, but we may end up relenting and taking our DDs with us. Time will tell!!! We are from Ontario, Canada. This will be my 4th cruise and DHs 2nd. Being a large family, we have not sailed as a whole family yet. I have taken my daughters and sons on the Dream separately, and DH and I took our girls on the Wonder Pixar Cruise from LA last fall. Looking forward to a new "Magic"al experience!!

I do have to say you are my hero! God bless you for a set of triplets and twins. This started out as a family get away, but we needed some adult only time and we both wanted to do Key West so it was a win win. We are not beach people per say, but we are excited to see South Beach.

So now there are three of us???? Where is everyone???? Guess there won't be much of a line at the pools...LOL!!! There are still way too many days until the cruise... We are also doing a trip to Vero and WDW at the end of September, so that helps. Still waiting on our new passports for DH and I. They should arrive in the next 2 weeks or so.

I was just reading about some changes to the Magic during dry dock. I think more info will be out next week. We have not been aboard the Magic before so I don't have anything to compare it to except for our two trips aboard the Wonder. I am looking forward to the same coziness but some things different. Can't wait!

May switch to this one

Hi All,
We are booked on the 3 night Dream on Nov 7th. I was not going to sail on that one (it was originally a dummy date), but then I saw this one out of Miami that is a 4 night. I may book this one. We have Alaska next (Aug 26th), and the Med booked (Aug '14). This would be our 7th Disney cruise (after Alaska - our first with our gold Laynards!!)

My children will be 8, 8, and 12. I'll be back if I actually book. It is Jersey week, and the kids will have to just miss one day.

We have talked about Vero, but have never done it. Have you been there before?

I can't wait as we are 41 days from our Disney fix. We will be at BLT the first week of June!!
