I want to say after the sail away party is over, they make a quick announcement and then you hear that wonderful Disney horn! Then the ship starts moving. I was so excited I can't say if it all happened at the same time or not? But if they pull out of Galveston the same way as Florida you shouldn't have any issues with making it up a deck to watch us leave the port. Especially if you take the stairs or aft elevator.

Can we leave tomorrow?
It is very very slow. No wake zone, I guess.

It is super slow! I know we were waving at the people, and a few minutes later we were still waiving at the people.

Dining Attire Schedule

I've posted this info in the FB page but wanted to post here as well for those who don't FB. This was a DCL shoreside concierge response to my question regarding what the dining dress schedule is for our cruise:

Formal night will be on night two, Pirate night is on night four (29th), Costume night is on night six (31st replacing semi-formal night).

Maybe for Halloween I'll dress up as a cruiser who is dressed for semi-formal night!

Our missing info for the FE is:
Me - Laura - Muppets
DH - John - Iron Man
DD4 - Kate - Maleficent as a dragon, Merida, & Tink (really hers change weekly so no telling by October)
DD1 - Ella - Mickey

We are in a GTY room and are from Dallas, Tx

Exactly... the SAME people!

I love this idea! I am the oddball who actually *likes* dressing up, so losing semi-formal night is kind of a bummer....

I agree with you about dressing up. Both DDs and I have decided we're going to dress semi-formal on one of the cruise casual nights.

Too funny! I guess you could dress in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt and go as a tourist.. Might get hubby to "dress up for Halloween" that way.... Thanks for the info - so glad Halloween isn't the same as Pirate night! Although I might be a Pirate for both - less packing if I have to bring dress up clothes....

I'm so sad!!! I may not be able to go on this cruise!

My position at my school is funded by a grant that ends this year, and the principal isn't sure she will be able to keep me. That means I'll be going back to teaching elementary school (right now I'm an instructional coach meaning I teach the teachers). There's no way I can leave my class for a week! I'd have to cancel.

Oh no! I was looking forward to meeting you, your mom and your little darling! I will cross my fingers for you

Take good care.

Oh my gosh, I was also looking forward to meeting you, your mom, and son. I hope and pray it works out and we do see you all on the ship!

I held a position like this for awhile and it was nerve-wrackicg every year when we would ask for funding again, so I know your pain!

People don't realize that teachers are so tied down during the school year. Yes, you can use sick/personal days and take the cruise - but the repercussions are tough. Your class becomes unmanaged and they fall behind with a sub for a week, and you spend your vacation worrying that they are sticking to the curriculum and not watching videos all day. All that said, I did it one year when my best friend got married out of the country. The wedding was in November and I set up my sub in August and talked with her all the time about my expectations for the week, and even brought her into the class several times to watch how we did things. It can be done. But I also totally get why you wouldn't want to. Tough call.

Crossing fingers for funding....

Welcome socaintexas! We have a Trick or Treat list and a FE list going. Let us know if you want to be added to one or both. We also have a Facebook page, just search on Disney HalloWonder Cruise 2013. We have some first time cruisers, including me so if you want to share any advice we're all ears!
