Loving all the pictures!

Shirley (or anyone who has this need), do you do vegan gift baskets? Also, what's the time frame for ordering, we'll be cruising in March.

They were backed up I think. Got my call and order taken for two birthday baskets for me DDs on our upcoming cruise. Very nice, and linked so I only have one delivery charge. Very excited.

I can't speak for The Perfect Gift but I would imagine if you asked for vegan items (like Oreos, etc) they would be able to get them. They seem to be open to your requests!

baseball cap (maybe a white or light colored one that can be autographed)
one of those metal water bottles (Disney has some cute ones)
a beach towel
picture frame
flip flops
snorkel set
journal and pen for note-taking during the trip (teachers love it when kids journal while on vacation!)
disposable cameras
small kite
instead of a basket or sand pail, I was thinking of asking for a re-useable tote bag as the base of the gift.

HTH!

I placed my order last week for our upcoming cruise, not sure who I talked to, but they were VERY helpful as I was looking for ideas.

I wanted one bag for all 4 of us from Mickey...a tote bag is the container. We are putting in magazines (one for each - Disney Pixie for DD, Sports Illustrated Kids for DS, Sports Illustrated for DH and People for me), 4 bottles of water, some candy for the kids for movies/shows...and now I'm drawing a blank on what else! Guess we will all be surprised when we get it.

Just over 2 weeks to go!

Hello Jaurban - I was so darn sorry - when you called, I was alone - Norm was at the doctors, my assistant was at the doctor's with her mom and one of my kids was having a homesick meltdown AND I just felt overwhelmed for the moment.
thanks for the patience - it meant a lot to me

You know, absolutely no problem. Melody took care of me and we are all squared away. I know what it is like not to get to things, so no worries.

Thanks!

Thanks a bunch for I have been loco lately

emailed shirley the other day and have ordered a basket for DH and I for our Jan 30th honeymoon cruise. Im having such a hard time keeping the secret from him!! I dont know how much detail to give Shirley, but basically just asked her for a tote bag, 2 cups for the drinks station and a bottle of wine- the rest is up to her to surprise us. I also let her know our favorite disney characters. Based on everyones' rave reviews here, I think im going to leave it at that and trust her to come up with something great for us first time cruisers
