WOW! Guys, this is gretting freaky!

My husband works in Westborough - I work in Worcester.

I have the younguns for the cruise so far with a then to be 7 year old and a then to be 4 year old.

Oh, hey, to stick with the metro west talk, we went to Ted's Montana Grill the other night at Bay State Commons and it was phenomenal! Really awesome! We were pretty blown away by it. You should definitely check it out if you can!

Oh, and come into Worcester for the Hanover Theater soon too! Totally awesome! We were at the opening night and then saw David Copperfield and it really is a very neat place!

I'm really just throwing this all out there because, well, it's the first time I can do something like that and know that people know what the heck I am talking about!

So, thanks for the post on the year anniversary until we cruise, aljsmom, and WELCOME!

OK - this is pretty cool! I can't believe we are all so close together! I always am running into people either that I know here on the DIS that I had no idea DIS'd or that live within a mile of me. Disney addicts are abundant in Massachusetts!

Thanks!

We decided to compromise and go for two connecting outside rooms. No verandah, but I do have a window. We figured not only would we have more space, but TWO bathrooms and extra beds and two tvs...not that I expect to spend much time in the cabin watching tv! If I had younger kids who would be napping then I might spend time on a verandah, but there seems to be SO much to do I doubt we will spend much time in the room.

I think that is a good choice too. I LOVE verandahs, but that is because I had napping kids. It's definitely a huge difference in cost that is at most times not worth it, because there is soooo much to do that it takes great effort to just sit and stop for a minute and sitting and stopping looking out over the water can be done at so many places on the ship.

You can also consider the "secret" deck area on deck 7 to be your personal verandah if you ever felt you needed some quiet time out on a deck.

WELCOME!

How was it?

How was flying?

How were the crowds? I think it's just a certain few NE states with this week as vacation?

Did you have a blast?

Who's in your family?

Inquiring minds want to know. This will be my first time traveling/cruising in a so called vacation period - I am nervous.

I was just talking to a friend at my son's baseball game that just came back from WDW and she had a horrendous time with flights.

Here goes: 1. Our best family vacation yet... We met another family from Mass on the disboard and their 2 children were the same ages as two of mine. Everyone from our cruise on the disboard met in the Promanade Lounge at 2:00 the day of sailing. I have a DS12, DD10 and DS7. We moved my DS7 into the Lab ages 8-9 just because he is 7 going on 12 and he did the Club last April and thought it was too babyish...He never wanted to leave. He was in the clubs until midnight, with us dragging him out. Keep in mind he is usually in bed by 8:00. 2. Flying was no problem at all. Three years ago, we flew Southwest out of Manchester...I will never go to Logan again...3. We did 2 nights at the Nickelodean and one night at the BeachClub. We went into the Magic Kingdom the Friday before the cruise. Longest we waited in a line was 15 minutes. We were last there in October so my kids just picked what rides they really wanted to go on. There were alot of NY and NJ on the boat but next year their vacation week is the week before ours. 4. We had a blast, that is why we rebooked. Up until my oldest was in 4th grade we pulled the kids out of school on non-vacation weeks. Now that they are older, I can't. They did miss 2 days prior to vacation, but they have never been out sick so I didn't feel it was a big deal. My husband and I had sooo much time to ourselves this trip. I do have friends with younger children who wouldn't go in the kids clubs and it wasn't as much fun for them. I even think the family that we met this year will book again with us for next year. Hope this answers all you questions.

How cool that everyone so far is from MA... and even a lot from MetroWest!

Maybe we should have a preCruise GTG with the kids so they/we can see if we think we are as cool as we are IRL.

DD (will be almost 13 for cruise) and DS (will be 8) just got back from Disney World with their dad. They had a fabulous time, but are REALLY looking forward to our cruise next April.

While they were away, we did a RCCL cruise. It was so much fun, but I hear that Disney is even better, so I'm rabid to go on again (am having post-vacation depression right now). The RCCL itinerary was very similar to what we are doing next year -- but couldn't do much about the dates, seeing as it's vacation week, and like pp said -- can't take older kids out of school as easily.

SO SO SO SO EXCITED!

Now my husband will be happy that I convinced him to rebook while onboard last week. For once I have "saved" him $$ Although he is still telling everyone that when he asked guest services for a print out of what we had charged while on board, the CM said "Wow" four pages, don't usually see that many....Oops...It wasn't all my fault....:

Add another Bay State family to the mix! We were just on the Magic & the 7 night western cruise 4/19-4/26. We had a great time as usual! We live in MetroWest and work in Wellesley & Belmont. Great to see such a large contingent from Mass. This will be our 5th Disney Cruise.
