10/24/2009 Bash On the Boat (I'm with B.O.B.) - Thread #18

This is Thread #18 of the BOB threads.

If you're new to our group, you're not alone. Several of us have sailed together before (on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise - a.k.a. Konked Kruisers) and several more are new. To indicate the ones new to the group, we have put an * infront of their DIS name.

The following is the same as the other first posts. For those of you new to our DIS Meet thread - WELCOME. There is plenty of good info in this post.

As usual, I'll be back here to update this post periodically. I will try to keep important information up here for all to reference as well as for all our new friends who come to cruise with us. If something of importance comes up, PM me and I will add the link.

We have dubbed this cruise "The Bash on the Boat" because so many people are celebrating birthdays or anniversaries on this cruise. You will also see "KK2" in the title. As you will read, many of us just sailed together on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise. So, with many of us returning here, we are dubbing this KK2. For those of you who didn't sail with us, please don't feel that you are not part of the group. We are a very open and welcoming/friendly bunch. We had such a great cruise last time, but feel it will be even better this time. Come along and enjoy the fun. We will get off-topic many times over the next 2 years, but it is a great way to get to know everyone.

First, here is the list of Characters:

* 2Princes_&_1Princess = Brandee and Justin and their 3 kids. Florida.
A Fat English Gent = Chirs and Hazel and their 3 kids. England.
*acourtwdw2 & acourtwdw--Amanda and Annette. Michigan

* CRSNDSNY = Melody and EB with their DD (4) and DS (2). Pennsylvania.
*D&GLofgren--Dave & Giap. Virginia
*danandnan=Dan and Nancy K. Maine
Disgrits = Paige and Rob. Virginia.
* DISNEYDUET = Shelley and Woody. Virginia.
dizneycrazy4 = Janice and Mark with their DS(14) and DD(10). Wisconsin.

minnieandmickey = Becky and Sean. California.

I will try to update that list as we go. If I forgot anyone or if you want different info posted, please PM me. I will NOT be putting room numbers up on this post.

A good place to start for planning this trip would be Cass' website. She has done a great job to organize almost everything you'll need for this cruise and posting here on the BOB board. Here is the link to her site: http://www.cassworld.ca/bobers.htm


Here are links to posts that we found important through this and the previous threads.

Incase anyone is wondering what the FO game we play here on the B.O.B. cruise meets thread, Jen gave a good explanation of the game:

FO is a game (for lack of a better description) that was started on the Konked Kruiser thread that some of us belonged to for the October 07 cruise. Don't ask me who started it or how, I joined that threead late.

Anyway, the game in a nutshell....if you post, and your post is the beginning of a page, then you try to get the second post on the page also. It means you have started a "Fresh One" or "First One" (I forget what the actual term was).

Now, this isn't always as easy as it seems - if there are multiple posters on at the same time, and someone else gets the second post, you don't get to "claim the FO". The 40 second rule between postings comes into play.

Signing up for the new thread!

And, I thought I'd repost what I was sending before the jump... about Build-a-Bear and pirates!



With all the talk about Build-a-Bear and pirates, I have to add our pirate bear story. We had a birthday party for Megan and Sarah at Build-a-Bear (2007, I think). We ended up being able to make an extra bear for the price we paid. All of the girls at the party helped make a bear for Matthew. He picked out the pirate outfit and dubbed him Captain Dave (using his middle name for the bear!)

The girls always choose a Build-a-Bear animal to bring on trips (we probably have 20!) So, we'll have to see if we can squeeze Captain Dave in the suitcase for the cruise!

Also speaking of BAB.... Has anyone else been to the T-Rex restaurant at WDW? The theming and the food are fantastic. Plus, they have a Build-a-Dino area in the shop. It is a Build-a-Bear cousin...not a knock-off. Our girls made the cutest dinosaurs!

Hi Beth, good to see you

I've never been to Build-a-Bear but I'm sure I will someday with Kira


I am looking forward to trying out T-Rex on our October trip, it looks really cool!

Good luck Cass! Watch out for Build A Bear - they have a device that will suck the money right out of parent's pockets (they do this while the kids are watching their bear get stuffed!)

Once you get done with all the accessories it costs a small fortune.
