I don't know how I'll be able to wait...

I'm 24 days out... its a surprise trip for my husband and I still haven't told him. Its killing me!! I'd like to not tell him until the morning we are supposed to leave (I'm sneaky enough to be able to pack for him!) But, having a room assignment to think about may make it easier, Im about to burst waiting!!

btw... although I specifically asked DU to have DCL send my cruise docs to my work address, they came to my home mail box today. Dh was home but didn't get the mail, thank goodness since it says..."Cruise documents" right on the front! Whew!

Yeah they need to figure something out. Don't think its DU, I think its DC. We had a similar situation this spring. Dad booked it for mom as a surprise and invited us kids on it, but we had just gotten back from a 7day carnival with 3 days at Disney and we didn't see how we could take any more time off or how it would be feasible financially back to back either. Then I thought we just couldnt not go on our family's first Disney Cruise for their 45th so we kids all planned to join them but were going to surprise both of them, so dad knew about the cruise but not that we all were going with him.

A week after we book (with two weeks to go) mom calls me and asks if I know anything about a cruise... She has found the mail. (Since I'm the family Disney geek, she automatically calls me.) She excitedly asks if anyone else is going, totally putting me on the spot! I have to tell her how bad I feel because we just took a long trip with our friends, we didn't know he was planning, yadda ayda. So she doesn't want to ruin Dads surprise, so she seals it back up and puts the entire packet of mail back in the box for dad to get when he got home.

All this while, he is texting me every day "I almost let the surprise slip!" And she is calling me like three times a week and I have to be so careful not to say anything to either because he doesn't know she knows, etc. It was torture! We finally got thru two weeks and "surprised" them, thank goodness, but who knows! At the rate they are being sneaky, they might have known anyway and we shall never know!

Those dern cruise docs need to be better about being sent to an alternative address. Anyway I think mom was glad to know she was going so she could pack her outfits etc that she wanted. She knew she was going on a FL trip to visit friends but supposedly didn't know about the cruise, but then silly dad would say "yep she's all packed up!" Riiight... She's packed for 7 days even tho she knows she's going for 3 days to visit friends huh... He is so funny!

Our story about springing the surprise on them at dinner at the contemporary is funny too. Surprises are hard!!!

I'm so glad I found this thread!! Just booked my first VGT yesterday about 45 days out so it looks like I'll have to wait awhile to hear some news!! It's very encouraging that mostly everyone seems to be happy with their room assignments and those of you who booked more than one room are close together. We have linked reservations with my parents so a connecting room would be so incredibly awesome! I know it's a long shot so even if we're on the same floor ill be super happy!! Will update here as soon as I find out our info! Happy cruising all!

Has anyone got their cabin assignment for the Aug. 1 sailing of the Dream?
Thought it might be today, but nothing yet.
