Personally, we don't cruise without passports or travel insurance. Yeah, it costs a little upfront, but it more than pays for itself in piece of mind. And if you do end up needing one or the other or both, you'll be SO glad you have them.
Great point, I having been going back and forth since its only a 3day cruise I should really consider.

Thanks again! Y'all rock!

Disney doesn't tell you that you will be so addicted to Disney cruising after your first cruise! I love the addiction to all things Disney

Has anyone experienced problems printing out their maganets? I am new to this and don't really know what I am doing wrong. I have always wanted to put them on our door but never knew where to find them. With everyone's discussion I am eager to do some but when I print it out on the magnetic paper it just comes out cut off but with regular paper it is fine.
If someone can help me that would be greatly appreciated. My kids would love to have someone on our door this year.

First time Disney Cruiser

Hi I am taking my first Disney Cruise on the Disney Wonder on Feb. 7th out of Miami. I would love to be a part of Fish Extenders but do not know how to find a list or start a list. I would love any advice or suggestions for my upcoming cruise. I am very excited! I will be taking my 10 year old son and 6 year old grandson as well as my mother. So want to make this the most memorable vacation for my boys.

I printed out what i wanted and bought sheet magnet paper at Hobby Lobby and stuck the printed items on there. I couldn't get the sheet printer magnet paper to work in my printer (very old) so this worked.

Coffee

Here's a snooty question: is the room service coffee still bad? Should I pack the small creamers? Do they have Splenda, or just regular sugar? First timer here

I don't drink coffee so I can't tell you but you definitely should bring your camera(s) and they do have Splenda on board. :

The coffee was not as bad as it was in the parks. Definitely tolerable.

I always take a bag of small flavored creamers, and take a few to the food counters with me.
