I'll be there too!

I'll be there with DH, DS-12, and DD-9. We went on the Magic in November of '07 and just loved it.

We just booked this cruise while on the Magic last week. I absolutely loved the Eastern and hope the Western will be just as fantastic (but I know it will be). DD will be 13 and DS will be 3 when we travel. I can't wait to get to know you all!

I LOVE January cruises...this weather is starting to wear on my nerves!!

If your son wants to have friends before the cruise, he can chat with my girls. They love meeting people before the cruises. I am always amazed at how close the kids all become on the cruises...they still talk to people from years ago!!

WHOOOO HOOOOO!!!! We just put our cruise on a courtesy hold on Saturday. We'll definately be making the deposit this week. I just wanted to check out other travel agents to see if they had better deals first!!

Our first trip to Disney as a family was in 1999. We were there again in 1/2006 (with two morekids!). And, we'll be on this cruise with all of you!!!

I'll be travelling with a dh, ds (12), ds (11), ds (8), and dd (turns 3 on the cruise!). I'm excited to meet all of you!

Welcome to all!

Is everyone else getting excited all ready?!? It is so much fun to look forward to vacation; especially, a Disney vacation! It looks like we have a great start on a nice group.

Oh my goodness I'm excited!!! I don't know who is more excited - my kids or me. After our WDW vacation last month, my 2 yo dd has been begging to go back and see Pooh, Mickey and Minnie.

So, how long ago did you all book?

I just booked when we were onboard a couple weeks ago. The waiting is the worst! We have an August cruise that we booked a year ago, too, but it's still too hard a wait!!

We booked in January after we got back from our November '07 Eastern Cruise on the Magic. I could just kick myself for not booking while we were still on the ship. We had such a great time, but my husband and I just couldn't commit to another cruise at the time.

My girlfriend and her family went on the Eastern cruise in December of '07. They booked the January '09 cruise while still on the ship and then invited us to go along. Their tablemates are going, also, so now we have a group of 10. We tried to get our tablemates to go along, but they booked for August of '09.

This weather were having here in Illinois all ready has me worried about flying out next January! I hope I can take the stress.

TTFN~

What is the advantage to booking another cruise while still on the boat? Do they give you a discount? I want to be prepared to make that decision to get the best deal possible!!

Oh and I hear ya' on the weather!!! We're going to be driving, unless I can find a better deal flying (unlikely with six of us!!). This past Jan when we drove back from DIsney, we drove through snow in Atlanta!!! Yikes!!

If I remember correctly, we would have received a 10% discount had we booked while still on the ship.

Another snow day for my kids today--that makes 3 this school year!

Have a Magical Day~

We received a 10% discount and a $200 shipboard credit for the seven day and a $100 shipboard credit on the four day. You can book it with them before you leave and then transfer the reservation to a travel agent and receive their incentives too. We have never used a travel agent before, but it sounds like it could really work out to our advantage. We are thinking of going with Costco.
