We had a very similar Amazon order! In addition to the Bug Repellant Wipes I did sunscreen wipes and all in One laundry sheets.

I am so super excited about this cruise!! On the one hand I want it to be here already and on the other there is so much to do beforehand that I feel like I am running out of time.

Anyone familiar with Mendehall Glacier trails from the visitor center? I want to hike one while we are there but want to pick one that the kids can do.

Are the bug repellent wipes any good?
Seems they would be nice and easy to pack and I hate the usual sprays
Hope you don't have to use the motion sickness pills!

I have never used these wipes, so we will see - Trader Ben, I think. They are 30% DEET. I figured it would be less hassle than packing a 3 Oz. Bottle.

I tend toward mild motion sickness. I take a pill a day when we cruise or fly, and that seems to do the trick. I don't get horribly sick, just enough to annoy me and ruin an afternoon, so I medicate prophlactically. My DD can get a little queasy at times if she reads in the car, so I want to be prepared. I don't want her to have a bad trip, so I will wrap a pill in a slice of cheese at breakfast. LOL

Thanks for the reminder on the Deet wipes! I think I ordered the exact same ones from Drugstore since they were just a tad cheaper (shocking!) and I had to order a few other items from there.

Like you, I also take a Bonine every day as a "just in case". My DS and DH do just fine and I travel with stuff for them too, but I'd rather not be any kind of sick on my stomach and the Bonine works perfectly. After getting off the Fantasy this past December, the airport was moving quite a bit (lol ) and I had swaying feelings for at least 3 days. Several on our cruise thread had the same symptoms (the last night was a little rocky) so I learned from reading the thread to keep taking the Bonine after getting home to help with that. I wasn't sick or anything - just felt off for a few days.

Pretty soon we'll be able to say, "we're going in a month and a half!"

Thanks for the info. I am going to try and find some of these wipes in the UK
When I was out in the US for business a couple of weeks ago I picked up some Dramamine (stuff like this is so expensive in England!)
I read somewhere that you should start taking it a couple of days before you board so I will probably do that, and then just take one per day, probably before bed
I just don't want to be drowsy durning the day - too much to do!!
The motion doesn't seem to bother DH at all

In only a couple of days we will be able to say "we are cruising next month"

Eeeeee....I got my Pixar shirts back from vistaprint and they look awesome!! It was so awesome seeing you ladies on FB! That website is amazing! There are such talented people on there that are so generous!
Working on my FE gifts today.
I had a question for anyone that's a little more used to taking taxis or other public transportation, (here in So. Cal everyone drives everywhere!)
I will be traveling with my 2 year old and he still needs to be in a car seat. Do taxis usually have car seats with them? Or is Vancouver easily traveled with the bus / train system? I'm wanting to avoid renting a car if I can...

Any insight would be appreciated!!

Blessings!

Hi everyone

Hope you are enjoying your weekends so far

Quick question, we need to make a final decision on joining the FE group soon

Does anyone have an update on how many sign ups there are and when the cut off date for joining is?

Thanks everyone!

Hi everyone

My husband, myself, and twin 4 year old girls have put a hold on this cruise. I just need to secure dog sitting and we should be good to go. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise (2nd trip to Alaska).

We pretty much walked everywhere - when we went, our daughter was 20 months and we just tucked her in the stroller and "beat feet"
We hired a car to and from the airport and requested a carseat. But we didn't want to lug ours along. Planning for the same this year!

We'll have our 3 1/2 year old and her best friend (same age) with us, we'll have to introduce the girls in the kids' club! Welcome
