Rio is a boy
Marika is a girl

We are waitlisted for early dining ...

I really liked early dinner then we all went to the shows/movies as a family.

Here's hoping I get my wish ...

Can't wait!!
Depends on when it is but we plan to go. We've gone before on past cruises and it can be fun.

I wouldn't mind at all sitting with other Dis'ers for dinner!
Us, too! We already have early dinng but would love to sit with other Dis'ers. I did this once before when friends of ours signed up for the cruise in Sept for the Dec cruise. We had to go through our TAs to ask that our reservations be linked somehow to assign us to the same table for dining. I don't remember for sure but I think we had their reservation number to do that, too.

Call DCL (or your TA). Evidently they have assigned everyone already. I was told this morning that if you are waitlisted and have a kid you are definately 1st seating. If you are just adults you probably didn't get it (unless they still had some room). Now, take it for what it's worth - but that's what they told me.

It was great getting to meet folks who we (DH & I) had been talking to for months & months. Throughout the week we were able to see our fellow Dis friends. I met quite a few of them while I was up around 5 am getting my 1st mug of tea for the day.

I would be interested in having Breakfast at Lumieres on Sunday morning. I guess we would have to pick a time and we could let everyone know at the Sat. 3 pm meet in the Promenage Lounge. I'd be willing to print slips to remind everyone what deck Lumieres is on, the time and what to tell the servers so we can all be seated near each other. I'd even be willing to get some LIME GREEN paper to print it on

This is what I was remembering... did we agree to meet on Saturday aftenoon before the lifeboat drill? I was thinking that's when we'd get our lanyards if we weren't to the terminal in time to pick them up. Also, do we have a group time for breakfast on Sunday?

Congrats to those that got early dining from the wait list!

In terms of my kids gender--both Keegan (12) and Brennan (8) are boys.

3 pm?

I believe (now Hadley's sleeping again so I can't be sure and she can correct me if I'm wrong) but I believe that those not receiving their lanyards at the port, that 3:00PM in the Promenade Lounge sounded familiar.

As for breakfast at Lumieres, that's at 9:00AM. (Ok 9:30AM for those that really really want that extra 20min of sleep) We can't have it much later as we'll be missing out on all the rest of the fun on the ship!

One good thing if you stuck with the late dinner.... you get a little more time on the last day to have breakfast before you get off the ship

Mine are probably obvious both boys (George and Sean), but thought I would let you know just in case. We are still working on ours... seemed like we had ages and ages to get it together and now time seems to be running out! Yea!

For us, we need to get off as quickly as possible. I know that sounds weird - but we are heading to Epcot for the D23 Magic and Merriment event. Which reminds me - I need to get our transportation from the port to AKL settled soon. One more thing on the list of things to do!
