90 days almost here?!

Has everyone figured out what excursions / spa / PALO reservations they are going to be making yet?
Doing some research and thinking today on this. I think we're going to do Key West on our own, a Private Tour of the Cayman's, and are looking at Chankanaab Park in Cozumel. + a Palo Brunch / Dinner / High Tea. Oh yeah, I forgot about the DW's spa reservations.

I'm new at this, so give me a little break on some probably dumb questions please!! We booked in Jan. but I just found this site. We are sailing july 25th as well. my self, my husband and 4 kids and bringing grannie to play also! two girls 9 and 13 and two boys 10 and 14 :grouphug I am guessing the D stands for disney?. None of us have ever been on a cruise before so we are very excited . I'm wondering what cruise casual is for kids boys mainly? and about flip flops in the dinning rooms? I have ff for sundresses and can't really think of something other than them to go with the dresses? are they not allowed at all in the dinning rooms? I saw some comments about a fish game outside the doors? what is this? Anyone from Texas going? Is it possible to just get off the ship when we dock and play in the ocean with out an excersion?? I've gone from Cali. to the top of Texas and sooooooo miss the ocean!! Any other input on things I should know would be greatly app.

Welcome! Keep us posted if you book or not! Are there good deals? I booked LAST March and I'm still trying to pay it off...I feel like I did NOT get a good deal!! I don't have kids to take for free though!

Welcome!! I can not answer many of your questions since I have never done a cruise before, let a long a Disney cruise BUT I can tell you that I absolutely plan to wear flip flops in the dining room. In the summer, I wear nothing but flip flops and I'm not changing that for the cruise! As long as they are not junky, FFs can look nice with the right outfit.

Congrats. on your honeymoon, my husband and I are making this ours we are coming up on three years and still have not been able to take one alone. we are hoping the kids will want to go play and we will have some alone time. (second marriages) our kids starte school to close to our wedding date.

Managed to get airline seat assignments

Woohoo!
Just selected our seats for the flight to Orlando. Managed to do it 2 hours early. What gives? Never seen that before.
Anyway, I'll be out to getting some ADR's for WDW in the morning, as we have a couple of nights pre-cruise at WDW. We're staying at AK Lodge. Thanks DVC! I used DVC for the cruise, I had to move from X-Mas / New Year's. Less pts. to cruise end of July, so managed to get 2x nights pre-cruise with the savings from our switch.

Hello To Newcomers

Hi,

It's just about that time to book PALO... I'm so excitied! This will be our third Disney Cruise. For those of you sailing for the first time you are going to love it. It is my favorite VACATION. We have a 9 yr DS who would spend all day in the kid clubs if I didn't make him go watch the shows with me. Ask any questions you may have, someone will probably have the answer..

Top Ten List – Disney Cruise

1.Get to the terminal early, the people at the airport tried to delay us, but we went early anyway.. It was very exciting, to walk around terminal and we even ran into Goofy and Pluto. We were on board by 12:00…

2. Buy an autograph book for your children at terminal son became a star struck autograph hound. He waited in line, mingled with other kids and loved the interaction with the characters.

3. Visit the Vista Spa. I had a great massage, and my DH and I signed up for the Rainforest Spa, which is an incredible steam room, sauna, and hot rock lounge chairs. Buy a week long pass ,Usually we had the place to ourselves.

4. Have dinner at Palo, order the Chocolate Souffle.

5. Have Coffee at the Quiet Cove …yum..

6. Buy a photo package at Shutters, it makes it lots of fun to pose and collect photos.

7. Order Cookies and Milk at bedtime, from room service at no extra charge.


8. Don’t miss the shows… My son and I loved them.. DH had time to himself

9. Use the Kids Club- my son loved it… he spent several hours a day doing all sorts of one –of a kind activities… The Graduation Ceremony was adorable

10. Enjoy the perfect vacation for family time, couple time. And Me time..

boys cruise wear

:. I'm wondering what cruise casual is for kids boys mainly? :


I pack kakhi pants and shorts, collar shirt for dinning room.. not a deal, kids can really wear anything. Don't forget Pirate Night, the kids (and some adults) like to dress up.

Hi!

Hi, all, I thought is was time that we joined our fellow cruisers!

We are flying in from California the day before the cruise, staying at the airport Hyatt the night before, and then staying at the Hyatt (in a "day room") after the cruise until we can catch our late afternoon flight. (On our last cruise, we didn't get a day room, and had to spend the whole time watching our bags and wandering the airport before we caught our late afternoon flight back to Cali...not fun with 3 kids just before a 5 hour flight!)

CC members (previous cruisers on DCL) will probably be lining up on-line to make ressies tonight, and my wife and I have been discussing what excursions, etc. we want to book.

Anyone else thinking of trying the underwater scooters on Coz? They looked interesting, but I think we are leaning towards the 4-elements, so that we can include our eldest daughter (10).

Also, kids-wise, we have 3 kids, all girls, 10, 7, and 7 (twins)...so if you have any kids in this age group, feel free to tell them that they will have the company of three crazy and boisterous girls in the kids' clubs!

First time cruisers, feel free to ask any of us questions, but most of all remember that even if you miss some things on the cruise (due to scheduling conflicts, etc.), you will HAVE FUN! So don't sweat the schedule too much, it will all work out!

Sorry NIKKI, but I've got toothpicks holding my eyes open to get Palo.. Your Wedding plans sound wonderful, is your bridal party cruising as well?

I can't decide if I'm going for Palo dinner or Brunch... our son gets a little jealous over Palo but he has such fun in the kids club.

Good Luck everybody
Susan

Nikki, no worries, our first Disney cruise was last year, on the 4-Night Bahamian...and even with only 4 nights available at Palo, were were able to get a reasonable reservation at the 75 day mark!

Hint: At 7 nights, this cruise is going to be suh-weet! Especially after just getting married!!!

24 minutes to go for CC members...

90 Reservations

Doing the Happy Dance... just logged in and got Palo Brunch and a Palo Dinner. We are also going on both of the beach trips, and I just had to reserve a spa treatment too. This will be my "happy Thought" as I finish out the school year..

Good Luck to all..

NIKKI -we had Palo on our first cruise, so I'm sure no worries.

I just LOVE the way the web site keeps track of your reservations and tells you what you already booked, so Disney.

Off to bed
Susan
