Ended up telling Rachel about swimming with the dolphins last night, she is so excited. Now I'm really glad I told her.

Figured out from your post that I forgot some sort of water shoes for her... I'm sure we should be able to find some at one of the airport shops.

Leaving tomorrow @ 6:25 and should be in Orlando @ 8:25... see you all soon!

Thanks for looking. Hope you luck into one. We are staying overnight in GA tonight and head to Canavral/CoCo Beach tomorrow. Maybe if you don't see it, they'll have it at the outlet in St. Augustine.

Thanks everyone for looking for one for us!!

HI everyone. It is cooling off tonight and supposed to be chilly and raining tomorrow--so those of you arriving tomorrow may want jeans and light jackets with you on the plane

Stefanie--I am glad to read you all feel better.

Fluvanna--We had no luck with the shirt at Downtown Disney today--BUT the girl at World of Disney thinks they have them outside of the Toy Story ride at the studios and we will be there tomorrow so I will look (and call if we find it).


I can't wait to meet you all on Saturday

OMG it is almost here!!!

I can't believe how close we are! I really should be finishing up packing but wanted to see what everyone was doing.

We will be staying at the Radisson at the Port tomorrow night. Turns out it was cheaper than paying to park at the port so we figured we could start a day early.

Safe travels everyone. See you on the ship!

We just got settled in to AKV. Our flight was delayed and we didn't get to Jambo House until almost 11:00. For some reason we didn't have a parking pass ready and when we checked in, the guest services CM went to take us to the 6th floor and our cards weren't working. We had to wait about 15 minutes and she brought us in the elevator again. Second set still didn't work. We decided to get something to eat since the Mara was closing in 10 minutes and come back and hope the cards were working. The CM said she would be there. We got back and she was gone so Derek waited in line and we finally got cards that worked--over an hour later. We're here though and that's what counts!! We will probably go to the MK tomorrow morning and are eating at Whispering Canyon for dinner. We may go to DHS in the evening to see the Osborne lights or go to Epcot for EMH. We are excited to be here but can't wait to be on the Magic more than anything!!!

I found the shirt right where Fluvanna said it would be outside of the Buzz Lightyear ride. Unfortunately, the biggest size they had was a large. I had the guy at the cart go to storage and check the stock but no luck. I was just going to suggest that I think I've seen that same shirt at the shop across from Midway Mania at the studios. We won't be there until at least Sat morning though so for now, I'll assume you'll be looking for the shirt tomorrow.

If none of us can get one, Fluvanna can always order one direct from Disney to be delivered to her. That would add shipping charges though so it would be nice if one of us could find it in the parks. By the way, it was $19.95.

Those dear kids of mine/ours ....

They were TOO excited to sleep & got up at 5 am today.

I am now having them get the house ready for the trip.

They are:
getting their room cleaned,
changing the sheets,
helping with laundry: sorting for washing & putting away clean,
decluttering the family
getting their travel bags packed
and trying to not YELL as dh is still sleeping

Aren't you glad you told them already??? A clean house - that's great!! Can't wait to meet your princesses (who seem to be in Cinderella/Snow White mode at the moment!)

I can imagine how excited they were when you finally told them. My dd has known for a while, and she couldn't sleep last night either.

We're headed to MCO about 1:30 this afternoon and should get in around 5:20. Staying at Downtown Disney tonight and headed to the Port in the morning. We're mostly packed but will finish as soon as the boys are up and then run the puppy to a friends before heading to the airport. Can't believe the trip is finally here - Can't wait to meet everyone tomorrow! Safe travels everyone!!!

Glad to hear the price has dropped. It was a major splurge in January. He wanted it to be his DIS green in port but if Hadley strikes out I will have to order it.

Thanks for looking Hadley!! Hope they have it there!!
I'm glad that you are feeling better too Stefanie!! I still have an annoying cough from the cold 2 weeks ago but feel fine. Its quite cool here in south Georgia too! I needed to have packed another long sleeve shirt!

Safe travels everyone. See you on the ship!

We're staying at the Marriott Courtyard near port for the same reason. We can sleep, get a hot breakfast, parking for a week, and shuttle service for less than port parking.

DH is going to drop DD and I off with the bags and then go back and ride the shuttle alone with no bags. Does anyone know if I can check in without him? Maybe I should have him park in short term, come in and get checked in, then go park back at the hotel?? We plan to be there around 10.

Can't believe you had so much trouble at check-in! That has got to be the worse Disney check-in experience I have heard of!! Glad you are in and hopefully had a good night's sleep. Hope everything is smooth sailing (pun intended) from here on out!

I can't wait to meet everyone tomorrow too! I was dreaming cruising dreams last night (haven't been doing that - just of lists of things to finish!) Finally feels real! We keep saying "Merry Christmas" to each other since this is a big hunk of our Christmas this year.

See you all tomorrow morning!

Fluvanna

Hi Fluvanna,

Last year when we cruised, I dropped off the wife and kids and took the car back to Budget. Everyone waited for me but I found out when I returned that my wife could have done quite a bit of the check-in without me. Sorry, I just can't remember the details. As it turned out, I'm the one that organizes the paperwork so we'll probably be in the same boat tomorrow.

We arrived yesterday from Nova scotia, so it was great to step out into 78 degree weather! We swam in the pool at Marriott Residence Inn (Canaveral), but today it's not nice...rainy and 60F. Probably just go shopping (I have three girls), maybe swim in the rain and get ready for tomorrow.

Safe travels everyone!

Frank

We'll be at RI this afternoon/evening.

I'll be in my LIME GREEN disboards t-shirt.

Maybe we'll see each other's families tonight or tomorrow am!

See everyone REAL SOON!

Hi Wuv Tigger,

How old are your kids? My girls are 6, 8 and 12. We tried to watch the rocket launch last night but it was cancelled. It may happen tonight but I doubt it with the weather. We're going shopping now (it's 11 am) and then we'll hit the pool late this afternoon and probably evening. Rain won't stop us!!

Hope to see you here at the hotel. I don't think I have the lime green this trip, it was crazy enough just getting packed. We only had 2.5 hours sleep before our flight yesterday morning!

I'll be looking for your lime green!

Frank (addicted to mickey), Pam and the girls
