We're also on early dinner, so even though we're in port until 7ish we will really only have until about 5 for shopping and such.

So I'll be the one in the hat and gloves, with a travel mug of coffee in her hands!
Yep, we also picked the 7:15am for the same reasons. We'd rather get our day started and then have time left for later to do another things around town. We have another early day in Juneau at 7:45am so I hope we get plenty of sleep on the lightest day of the year!! I hope the curtains close enough because my DS naturally wakes up at 6am, every day, so the sun would only help him and gosh I need all the sleep I can get!! Great idea to bring a travel mug and we might fill it up with tea or something like that to all share and I'll need snacks too since lunch time will quite a ways off!

So excited!

Heather

Very close. Bump is used to move a thread to the top of the list of threads. Since, in most forums, the list of threads is sorted by last modification date, "bumping" moves your topic to the top or from the second or third page back to the top of the first page. It can also be used to remind people who have email subscriptions to a thread (like I do to this one) that someone is waiting for a response.

You and my husband both!
My dad insists the prices will drop a little bit more so we're holding out. I pretty much know WHEN we're planning on departing and returning, just haven't actually made the commitment yet. 1-2 more weeks and I'll have to do it just for my own sanity!

The curtains block so much sun that occasionally Lionel and I wake up with no idea of what time it is! If you a clothespin or two you can keep any of the light from peeking through where the curtains come together

I got a great travel mug onboard for our last Alaska sailing - I love it and still use it. Hoping they have them again this year.

Hello there....I know, I have been going crazy with the digital page....so many cute things, I want them all. Cannot believe that the group of designers do all of that for free.....Getting sooo excited, I can't stand it.

I know Jayne is doing an awesome job organizing the MUFE and RM. Kudos to her.

Its a group page on Facebook called Graphics for All Lovers of Disney - you have to ask to join the group and there are people on there that design all kinds of graphics, all you have to do is ask with a please and thank you! The MUFE Member graphic was created by one of the awesome designers.

LOL - ok, keep us posted on the airfare! I'll feel much better once you've booked it! LOL I'm just hoping now these new budget cuts that just kicked in don't impact us. Thanks for the tip on the clothes pin for the curtains - great idea!

I make digital scrapbooks for myself so I have some really cute items saved and we'll be making our magnets soon for Alaska!

WOOHOO

Hello Linda67!
Yes! We are on the June 17 sailing! I have two boys, ages 5 (soon) and 8. The Fish Extender activity sounds like it might be fun for them but I'm a little concerned about packing space and also need ideas about what would be appropriate. Do you give just one gift for the entire party in the stateroom or separate gifts for individuals in the same stateroom (hope that makes sense!)? And how do we know when to deliver our items?

Thank you for all of the great info!
Happy Hom

Hi there! Our FE group is still building. Its a small group so far. Deadline to sign up is May 10th. I am organizing the group - I am 808MauiMama. I mentioned doing one family (stateroom) gift that represents where you're from and one individual gifts. Additional gifts are optional. We'll see how many people we have at the deadline to decide. I also want to say, that this is "recommended" and not mandatory as I previously stated. I don't think "mandatory" was a good word to use. I want everyone to feel comfortable and not stressed over this. Hope you will join us!!

I'm putting together a spread sheet of Staterooms signed up for the MUFE. I have asked for the following information:

Stateroom #
Who's in the room:
Ages
Where from
Special Occasion celebrating

I'm wondering if you all would like to share more information such as
Names
Facebook names
email addresses
Favorite Disney character

Please Private Message me these details if you want and I will add it to my spreadsheet. Everyone signed up by May 10th will receive this list by private message(I think, if I can figure it out).

I'm busy working on my projects, are you!!
