Have you ever done this excursion? What did you and you family do while you where there? Then on St Thomas we are not sure what if any excurions that we want to do. DW and here friend want to shop. When they heard about a choc. store on 1 of the island not sure if they will get pass it. I want to go into the casinos on St Martin. Not sure if there are any on St Thomas?We did not care for Nassau. We do go into it but not to long. The last time we where on the Wonder and got off in Nassau . This guy wanted to braid my hair and give me a tattoo in the same chair For 1 my hair is not that long and 2 I don`t want a tattoo. Then 1/2 of a block from the boat guy wanted us to taxi back to the boat,he said we look beat. We heading to WDW friday morning and I we can hardly wait. Will be in the park for 8 days. Back to the islands what should we stay clear of on the islands ? I quess that is it for now,will think of more after I get off of here.
I agree with you on Nassau; we weren't impressed.
We have been on three Disney cruises but have not yet done this itenerary with St Martin and St. Thomas. Do you guys have a passporter? That is what we use as our solid source of info.

Also try:
http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/cruise-new/cr-ports.htm

As far as shopping goes; I recommend going to the shopping presentation on the ship the day before port. They give the best places to go and last week they gave coupons, gifts and prizes. Just look at the Navigator and it will tell you when. Looks like the chocolate place is called the "Belgian Chocolate Box". Check out a sample Navigator here: http://www.wdwinfo.com/Photos/DCL-Na...ping%20Pg3.htm

Have fun at WDW!

How and when do I make dining reservations? Am I able too? We would do the early dine as we have 2 kids.(DS will be 9 and DS will be 6). We booked through a travel agent, do I tell them or is this something I do? We would also do the fish extender thingy as well. Just gotta get one and what do you put into said extender? Stuff from your state or things that are common where you live? We also will be doing Palo after all we will be celebrating our 10yr.
thanks fourgonefishn

Your dining rotation is assigned to you by DCL. You can request early or late dining thru your TA.
Your Palo ressie you can book once cruise is paid off and 75 days prior to sailing you log into disney cruise website and one of areas you can fill out cruise contract, cc info, register kids for clubs, book excusions etc.

as for fish extender you can put whatever you please in them I'm thinking of doing Stickers, ink pens, Some kind of small gift in mine. you could do something from your state if you choose. Once cruise gets closer I'll start list of who's doing and what cabin they are in.

Be sure and have TA note on your Ressie you are elebrating 10th annv. On our last cruise we got a special dessert one night, A special gift in state room and were seated with other celebrating annv.

Ok for anyone who doesn't know how to book things:
Go to www.disneycruise.com
You will need to log in using your disney site id, if you don't have one there is place to sign up
once logged in click my disney cruise on right top of page
once page loads you can see bunch of buttons on left side
click cruise plans
you will than need to type in dcl ressie # and birthdate of lead person on ressie
once your cruise is paid off and your booking window is open (75 Day new cruise/90 day repeat cruiser) there are buttons to book shore excusions, palo, etc.


I hope this helps anyone who needed it. You can also check on your cabin number etc thru this area by choosing my reservation instead of cruise plans.

Hi there everyone

Sailed on the Magic this April gone and rebooked on board for Sept 26th 2009
Nice to read this thread and see quite a few of you already booked.
This cruise will just be me and DH (same as last one).
We are both really looking forward to the Eastern Cruise this time.

Did I read in another post that you were staying at the Poly? That is our all time favorite Disney Resort! In my dreams I win the lottery and just live at the poly and on the DCL Magic!
LOL - DH nixed the 3-Day cruise idea. Actually, since the Wonder leaves on Thursdays and Sundays, we would have to either extend our trip by a day (as we check out on Wednesday) or knock 3 days off and leave on Sunday. I just don't think it's in the cards this year.

As to our WDW trip this year, YES, we are most definitely staying at the Poly. We stayed there last year during our Land/Sea and we fell in love not only with the resort itself, but with the convenience of the monorail. I'm so excited!!!!

I can't believe I have missed so much

Got back from amazing Disney World trip several magical moments really amazing. Welcome to all the new people so glad you have joined this wonderful group. We are Brent and Cheryl from Keller Texas. I will be over the age of 51 when we travel - 50th birthday 8/8/08 Yippee Skippee! DH- Brent four years younger - I either robbed the cradle or raised him up right which ever you prefer. I never thought I could enjoy anything more than WDW until I cruised with Disney. Have done other cruise lines with mixed results. I love Disney cruises and I am already buying princess dresses for DGD. (2 tomorrow) We are doing Palo's brunch and high tea. If any of you would like our tickets for the character breakfast we will not be going. My guess is my best friend in the whole world - Thumper08 - and her dh will not be using theirs either that will be four extra tickets.

Got some great news be son in law will be back in Navy SEAL training sooner than expected. He had some injuries and had to sit out for a while. That is a real answer to prayer as my DD is pregnant with number 2 and we did not know if he would be in the states. Now because of his training he will be definitely be stateside when the baby is born. Anyway so much to say, missed talking to everyone - so glad to have new people join us and hope everyone has had a little magic the past couple of weeks.

Best to all
Mal.

Oh, Mal, I'm so jealous that you just got back (September can't come soon enough). I truly hope that your vacation was wonderful and magical! I just have to tell you that I had to laugh when I saw the date of your birthday because DH and I are hoping to renew our vows at Disney World (YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY) and the date of our 15th anniversary is 12/12/12. *Sigh* I can't wait to get the DVD from Disney weddings.

That's also great news about your son-in-law being in the States when their baby is born.

I'm with Mal. Oh my gosh, so much postings since the last time I was on the DIS.

Great to see so many new names. Welcome everybody!


Crystal, I was jealous of Mal about 3 weeks ago when she was about to go. Right now I'm not so. It's such a drag to come back home again and face everyday things again. (and let's not forget about the washing). Neh, I'm jealous of all of us going to either WDW or DCL before I do. I'm glad they're going, but I want to come along.
