Smile Hello everyone!!!!!

Hi, we just got back last night from our June 8th Mexico cruise, we re-booked on board for Sept 26, got a great deal, and the $200 obc is a cool thing, and once DCL has our reservations we will transfer to DU for an additional $100 per cabin...which we have 2 [connecting] so a total of $600 will be super duper!!! This time around we had $300 total for our two cabins, and we spent it all, so doubling that is going to be awesome!! We did the Western in Sept of 06 and REALLY did not care for it, so we are hoping that the Eastern will be more to our liking. Well am looking forward to learing more about all of you...Oh guess you should know who is going...

Me
DH
DD will be 13 at time of sailing
DD will be just shy of 11 by the time of sailing
Twin DS's will be 8 1/2 at time of sailing.

Also going will be DBINLAW [dear brother in law] and on the fence is DBINLAW's GF and his Sister and her Boyfriend and DH's two sisters and their families.

Smile Hi!

Hello! We will be on this cruise too. It will be me, DH, DD 7, & DS 4. We are so excited. I saw the pic of the fish extender - how exactly does this work? Do you put small gifts in them & disboarders take them or ??? Thanks!

The fish extender is something you hang outside your stateroom on the little fish (some recommend ziptie-ing them so they don't "swim" away). Everyone in your exchange will at some point leave something in it for you, and you would in turn leave something in everyone else's. Some people do one thing, some people do everyday (yikes! That's a lot!) some people do it whenever some do it on a swap schedule, it all depends on your cruise board. (Can you tell I read to many threads? ^.~) I'm already starting to think about what we'll be giving out!

Cruise board logo on page 10 feel free to use it! I hope everyone likes it...

We did the fish extender gifts...and decided to only do it for the week days..mon-fri, and mostly for only the kids... but in all honesty we had 17 cabins with a total of 26 kids...so it was over 100 small gifts.. but most of them were small little things..like homemade magnets for the day it was...ie... a pirate magnet with the words... Pirate Life for me on it... so you would put it on your door for Pirate night..lol and of course sickers, one dis'er made personalised journals with matching disney pins for all the kids... they all LOVED them. The list goes on and on..I can't wait to start buying for all of our cruise.

Question Door Magnets??

Was just wondering how many of you decorate your cabin doors? We had a ton of stuff on ours, and can't wait to make all our new stuff. Any one have any cute Eastern Caribbean disney clip art?

Hmm let's see, Rebecca. If I say I am SO NOT creative more like creatively challenged, does that give you a hint of how poorly my cabin door will look?

Welcome aboard Haileyboo!

Woo-Hoo - you go girl! We always wait until the very last minute to pay ours off. I figure that Disney gets enough of our money that we should try and hold on to as much of it for as long as possible. Have a great day, everyone!

Sure sounds like it, Jan! It'll be a blast on deck 6.

Lol, this is even paying it off 'late'. Overhere if you book anything? You pay in full for it, that same minute. (also no more changing anything, can you imagine? ) So Disneys and DCL's policy is like, well, financial heaven or something? Having it payed off makes me feel more at ease, especially with still enough things that'll need to be payed for, for the cruise. I'm living on a sort of disability pay so still having 15 months to safe up for the rest is very welcome.

And besides; the sooner everything is payed off, the sooner I can start saving for a next trip!

Hi, everyone I'm so excited I went to transfer our reservations to DU and noticed they were offering double obc so I decided to see just how much DCL would charge us to upgrade... We originally booked connecting cabins 2122 & 2124, and orginally when I called DCL they came back with a pretty steep increase.. But I asked them if I could still get my castaway member discount, and if I could also keep my 10% discount for on-board booking AND figuring I had nothing to loose I told them when we booked on board their was also a speical that the per person deposit was half off...another words $125 per person and I didn't want to pay an additional $125 to make it the normal $250 and last but not least, I WANTED/NEEDED to keep my $200 per cabin stateroom credit.

After a long pause..he said "ok, let me check". After about 4 minutes he came back on the line and said "Ok, you got it all!!" Oh gosh that is super exciting. So in a nut shell, we still get to keep all we had, but now we have connecting verandah staterooms 6620 & 6622 for only an additional $126 per person from what we were already paying. And the best part of all, I transferd my reservations to DU and they are giving us an additional $200 per stateroom credit, for a grand total of $800 for the two cabins. We have never ever had verandah staterooms before and I can't wait. I am super excited, not only about the extra $$$ to spend, but being able to have fresh air, and sit outside and just watch the world/ocean go by in private. Hope you all have a great Thursday.
