Do you think closing 30 days out will give us enough time? With the holidays right before the cruise time might be tight for everyone.

that's a good point. In the past I have had some issues with some people not wanting to close it until two weeks ahead!

Let's see how big the group is getting several months ahead. I was just on the NYE Fantasy, and our group was not very big- maybe 23 cabins? I think we only had one join in the weeks approaching the 30 day cut off. It was a sold out cruise though, so not a lot of opportunity for folks to add late.

If this cruise has GT rates though, there could definitely be a lot trying to add late, and it could be an issue.

True, on our last one we had a 'new' list for folks who joined after the cutoff date. That might be a possibility.
We cutoff 2 months out with 28 cabins for a 3 night on the Dream. Folks in the original group were welcome to be in both groups.
So many options out there lol

I think 30 days is a fair cut-off, or maybe slightly longer. Two weeks is way too close even without the holidays.

I'm ready to start planning them now, haha!

When it gets time, I'll want the following information: Names of everyone in the cabin Ages of kids Cabin number Email address Food allergies/special requests (such as gluten free, no alcohol, etc) I'll also send out a map before the cruise with all the participating cabins highlighted, it makes finding some of the inside cabins much easier! I'm already thinking of my gifts!
I was thinking maybe we should start collecting info now rather than wait. Did everyone get a chance to join the Facebook page? We can post the docs there for folks to add. This will also help us get to know each other better :-). Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

I think that's an excellent idea - no reason to wait to start this up - that way we can get to know each other...............and see who's here too!

I have headed up quite a few FE's and would love to start this up - I've got a Google form all set up for this purpose, using one now to head up the EBPC in September, makes it super simple for all!

MrsJames- I have done research online and read DISboard threads about the excursions. Here is a good thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2873063 I decided to chill until later.

Yesterday I did submit a request to join the FB page but I really prefer to keep posts on the DIS. I don't use FB much and the FB page shuts out other DISers. I personally have read many cruise meet threads and know that many DISers not on our cruise will like to read our posts. Also, I chose DISboards and did not search FB for a cruise meet. It is just my personal preference. I love the DIS!

Just booked this cruise. We'd be interested in FE if anyone is doing it. Even though it's far away- so excited.
