Crystal, this is funny. I just payed my deposit today also, and will also celebrate my 30th birthday. OK, a couple of days early, but I really wanted to do a St. Maarten cruise.

LOL - well, my birthday is actually in July, 2009 but the cruise prices in July were $3,500 more than this cruise. So, I guess I should say that I'll be celebrating my 30th un-birthday during our cruise.

No your not. You're just a tad bit later celebrating your 30th. Some people wait untill the next weekend to celebrate and party, you just happened to wait untill the next cruise.

If there are going to be more people celbrating their 30th, we'll be asking for a discount. We deserve it. As a present and as a thank you for letting everybody enjoy our great celebration.

That's just down right rotten, Fourgonefishn. Who ever decided it was a good idea to hand out snow at Easter!?

It's been snowing overhere for 5 days in a row allready and not looking like it's going to stop yet. It's a looooooooooong 18 months still to go when you look out of your window and see all of the white and grey.

Well, I have to say that snow sounds a bit welcome right now. Atlanta's pollen count has been in the 10,000s, which means that everyone in the Metro area is walking around with itchy eyes, sniffly noses, and tickley (is that even a word - LOL?) throats. I can't wait for the darn trees to quit flowering!

If you wish, I'll send it your way Crystal!

Surely most of us wont be missing it. The kids love it, it makes for nice pictures, but that's about it. Just a small amount of snow and traffic and everything comes to a halt. You'ld think we'ld be used to snow in march by now after a couple of years of it, but I guess we're not.

Hi Mal,

congrats on booking! Let the countdown begin!

I haven't done this cruise before, it will actually be my first cruise ever.

DH & I (early 50's) will be there with you. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. The first was the Western with just the two of us. Last Sept. my sister & brother-in-law joined us for the Eastern. We will be just the two of us again next Sept. My sister & brother-in-law are converts now! They have a 4 day booked for Dec. 09--taking their daughter & boyfriend along. I would love to take our children & grandchildren but its just so difficult to get everyone scheduled!

We have enjoyed both the Western & Eastern. I think I lean more towards the Eastern. I love the extra sea days!

Thanks for the welcome

Thank you for the welcome. I am so looking forward to the extra days at sea. I love watching the waves go by. I am looking forward to bringing DGrandDaughter on her first cruise but I am waiting until she is at least 4. (almost 2).

Christianweecare - what are the main differences between the Wonder and the Magic?
Fire14 - Did you also post on the passporter site?
Spectrum-Turbo - Where in Texas is the group from? We live in Keller a suburb of Fort Worth.

My philosophy on Disney Cruising (not that any of you asked) If you are not on a Disney cruise, you should be planning a disney cruise. Well should be picking up instead of chatting.

TTFN

I have never been on the Wonder so I can't give an informed answer. We have only cruised on the Magic. From what I have read there are only a few differences. Some of the eating establishments and so forth carry different names. Also, some of the shows are different.

Welcome, Mal! Love, love, love your DIS name! This cruise will also be our first on the Magic. We did the Land/Sea in December, 2007 and DH fell in love with cruising (he said that he would be a happy man if he could cruise for every vacation). I, on the other hand, still prefer the parks, so our compromise was to switch off every year. 2008 is our parks year and 2009 will be our cruise year (although I hope I can convince DH to add at least a couple days at the parks in 2009 - LOL). Anyway, welcome aboard!

Crystal, I've been meaning to ask; is it a costume your daughter is wearing in the pictures? Seeing them allways makes me wonder about the storie behind it.

About the difference between Wonder and Magic; isn't the decor also different?

Goofie - yes, indeed, that is a costume. I actually went a bit overboard last year in purchasing costumes for our trip, and purchased 2 pirate costumes. The one that she is wearing in my signature is Elizabeth Swann's "fancy" pirate costume from the 3rd Pirates movie. However, a few months after I bought that costume, Disney released a second Elizabeth Swann pirate costume which actually looked like a pirate costume, so I *had* to buy it. DH made me use the fancy pirate costume for Halloween (which is where those pictures came from) and I packed the second (real) pirate costume for our trip. Here is a picture of the pirate costume she actually wore on our cruise:
