Welcome, Cmbar! Sorry for not getting around to this post sooner - work and holidays have filled my time.

If you are interested, we have an FE exchange sign up form. Let me know and I can PM you the link or, if you or someone else joins the Facebook page, the link is accessible there.

Hi chickamu! Sorry, I didn't see any request from you to be added to the group. I've been slacking a bit so I do apologize. Please try again or send me a PM with your FB email address and I will get you added.

We are booked for this one as well! Trying to find options on flying in and out of Vancouver. We want to give ourselves 1-2days lead in getting there. I hope I can find this thread again.

Can I also be added to the FB group?

DH and I will be on the cruise to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We're from VT so it's bit of a haul to get us there (and airfare is NOT cheap!), but I can not wait for the trip. We've always wanted to go to Alaska, and I've always wanted to do a DCL cruise so we're kind of getting two birds with one stone

Right now we're looking to arrive in SEA on the 21st and then make our way to Vancouver either that night or early am on the 22nd. I really don't know how close is too close as far as arriving in Vancouver. We have a semi-strict budget (which is also making excursion planning difficult) and really need to spend as little as possible on getting there and getting home.

We are not big air travelers - we have been to WDW several times but always fly non-stop from VT. I have a lot to figure out before we can book flights, etc. and am happy to receive any and all tried and true suggestions for when to arrive in SEA, how to get to Vancouver, etc. I've read through most of the other Alaska threads and am currently quite overwhelmed with the possibilities. Sometimes I wonder if it's "worth" the extra $$ to just fly right to Vancouver...but then I think of the excursions we could do with that money if we saved it instead. Ugh!

At this point I'm not sure about the FE (why IS it called that, anyway?) as it will be just DH and I. Depending on the size of the group, we may participate.

Sorry for rambling - I'm so excited for this trip - we just booked a few days ago and already I can't sleep because I'm planning in my head.

I look forward to meeting some of you!

WELCOME!!! KelseyLaPerle to our lil' Disney family! Glad to have ya'll onboard with us. It's very understandable of your concerns on "the budget" issues. We (wife & I) were that way on our first cruise too. "FE" stands for fish extender. There are fish ornaments that are on the wall next to stateroom. So with that said, people make & decorate a FE to put outside their stateroom for a "gift exchange" from Disboard/Facebook friends. If you send me a PM with your FB I'll add you to our group. PS There is a Fish Extender Disney Cruise Line Facebook page you can join also. That way you can get ideas and see what FE's are all about.

I can not send you a pm - I keep getting an error message saying you can't receive messages. You can find me on Facebook by searching - my name is the same as on here.

Thanks!!

Welcome to the group, Kelsey! I feel your pain with the Alaska cruise expense. I don't understand why it is so much more expensive than a 7 night cruise in the Caribbean. As my 12 yr old ds said, "It's just ice!"

We originally looked at flying into SEA as well but, being the number cruncher that I am, I figured out the cost of SEA vs VAN and based on my family of 5, it ended up being almost a wash by the time we added the train to VAN and the extra nights in SEA. I calculated everything using the cheapest alternatives (inexpensive lodging, public transportation, modest food budgets, etc.) and the numbers didn't justify the aggravation and effort involved. Needless to say, we booked our flight to VAN.

As for shore excursions, this really is the highlight of an Alaskan cruise. I have been to Alaska twice now and both times were very different experiences. On my last visit we spent the day walking around one of the towns rather than taking a tour. While it was a good time and interesting to see, it's not something we reflect back on like the other excursions we took. I realize they are expensive - most of the tours our family is interested in doing are going to cost me a minimum of $1000 . When all is said and done, the tours will cost almost as much as the cruise.

I don't mind if some of you on this cruise want to book in under our group - I have a block of about 100 rooms and know they won't all get used. The rate is good July 18-22 at the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel - its a gorgeous hotel with a really deep outdoor pool the kids love - I have stayed there a few times - anyway if you want to take advantage of the $119 rate - just call them and say you are with National Canadian Girl - just say you are part of my group Thought of this tonight and maybe can help some of you save some $$$. You could hop the shuttle to the airport and then hop the disney bus right to the pier, or just taxi/limo, etc.... http://www.deltahotels.com/en/hotels...ouver-airport/
I probably won't check back on this thread, so keep all the newcomers in the loop - I don't mind you using it at all. Just don't let on at the hotel you aren't actually with our group. hahaha. If you have any questions just pm me!
Thank you so much!! We just booked our room. Only 175 days to go.....
