I can't wait!!

I checked about the SPH room and there were no more available for us...oh well, you snooze you lose, I should have booked it when I had the chance. That's fine, I'll be happy on deck 2, at least we saved a decent amount of money from what we paid on the last trip.

I think I am down on Deck 2 - its the party deck

WOO HOO

With all the $$$ we save, we can do some awesome excursions

That was one of my lessons from last time - do great excursions. We only really did one thing and that was the Pirate Ship in Grand Cayman. After which we went to a beach. In Cozumel we were supposed to do a Catamaran ride but it was really windy so it was cancelled. At Key West, we just did the Trolly Tour.

My youngest was only 5 last time and only a beginner swimmer. We are really working on improving her swimming so my little 7 year old will be able to do more this time.

amazing how fast you fall down to the 2nd page

So I checked my room number finally and we are in 2606. We are happy - the kids will want to be in the AFT so they can run quickly up the stairs for ice cream.

It amazes me how fast they can run the stairs and still not take anyone out.

Funny how one has priorities. We are forward on 6 - fast trip up to Quite Cove - pool, hot tub, bar and cafe!

I ran over a deer today on my way into work. YUK! The vehicle heading in the opposite direction hit it and the (I hope) carcus slide in front of me and I did not have enough time to do anything about it other then go over the top. I tried to straddle it but don't think I made a fetch of that. I hope I stop shaking soon.

Well, my day has no where to go but up so have a great Tuesday everyone.

We are stateroom number 2618 so we will be neighbors It would be nice if we both got upgraded to a better floor for the same price This year the cruise that went election week was half full, I think this is election week next year as well (albeit it's not a presidential election, it still might have an impact).

It probably really depends on the US Economy - the deals to go to WDW in early 2009 are amazing.

A friend just came back from being there a week and they said that they rarely waited to get on a ride. Just walked on some rides. Definately didnt need Fast Pass very often

I was on the Magic over election day this year and I'm pretty sure the ship was a lot more than half full. It was also Jersey week, so it seemed to be half full of folks from NJ. We were in a category 11 room--if the ship was only half full I'd think we would have been upgraded. Next year we have a 12 guaranty, so I'm crossing my fingers for some pixie dust from the upgrade fairy!

No, I didn't stop, couldn't really as there would have been nothing to do. There were lots of cars behind me as well. I thought afterward (when I stopped shaking) that maybe I should have called 911 or something but they don't remove carcases here, don't know why. They are beautiful animals but they sure do cause a lot of havoc this time of year. Between the rut and hunting season about to open, it will only get worse.

I always hope for an upgrade but I am never the "lucky" one to get it. It doesn't much matter I suppose, I'll be happy just to be on the ship

I am going to have to move to a state that has off when the rest of the country doesn't!! We met a family who were from California on our cruise and they get 2 weeks off in October, I would love to be able to not take my son out of school to go on vacation but forget it, the airfares and cruisefares are outrageous during those times.

So tell us about your cruise?

Best Food?
Best Excursion?
Best Magical Moment?

any changes worth noting?

Nice to know people near by. We were in a Category 4 (so I think Level 8)before as we had 3 kids with us.....this will be a different experience being on Level 2....I would think a bit more stairs!
