March 20, 2010*** Mickey's Magic Matey's Cruise the Western!***

I didn't see a link for this in the cruise meets post so I figured I'd start one. If there is already on started, please let me know!

So is anyone else from the DIS booked on this cruise?

So, anyone else going on this cruise?

Hi Christina; we three (dee 65 don 66 and allen 42) will be on the cruise with you. this will be our 2nd cruise (1st was oct 08 on the Magic on the 7 day eastern swing). we loved it so much that we are going again. we arent experts but if we can help you in any way; plz let us know. I am retired USAF and Dee is retired from the local school district and still working as a teachers aide sub. allen is our live at home son. we are scheduled to be in same room (2566) as our earlier cruise and we will be at the early dining. just a tip if you contact carol zwerner at toll free 866 522 0312(she is a disney authorized cruise planner) and was able to get us extra on board credit and still keep all arrangements we had made with disney cruise line originally.

dee don and allen

we hope to hear from you

I was so happy to see this thread! DH (43) and I (41) will be joining you. This was supposed to be our first cruise with DCL, but now it will be our second because we gave in and booked the July 2 3-day as well.

I just booked for this cruise this morning and I am so excited - and I just can't hide it - that I feel like a kid again. This is all of our first cruise. I do not know the abbreviation for my dad but it is me (44), DD (9) and my dad (69) who are going together to celebrate spring break. My dad takes DD and me (his DD) on a trip every year. I am posting lots of questions and learning a lot. I look forward to seeing all of you on board!

we had early seating for dining and it worked out well for us. we were in a room on 2nd deck (2566) which was just around the corner of the hall to the elevators which gave a easy access to the dining rooms of Lumeries(spelling), parrot cay and then up to 9th deck for the soda stations. If you have a large refillable mug to take along-it makes for easy fill ups at the soda station. we then left the mug for our room steward (Donovan) who was tickled to get such a large mug for himself. this is just a little tidbit of information; but please let me know what you are interested in and we will try to help

one of the best tips is just enjoy everything. If you can't decide between two of the desserts at dinner...order them both. the Quiet Cove Pool is a great place for adults to relax. Do things that you like, even if some would think they are just for kids. We are all kids at heart.

I have been doing a ton of research also as I enjoy the planning as much as the doing. I am particularly happy to do this cruise as I think my daughter will remember it her whole life and she gets great memories of her with her grandpa. I enjoy traveling as an adult with my dad now (not the long car trips when I was kid!!!!) so these are special moments in all three of our lives. My husband is a total disney grouch so we are leaving him at home which is just fine.

I booked the second dining as we live on the west coast and that will feel more "normal" I think. I've never heard of anyone losing weight on a cruise I'm hoping DD (8) can make some quick friends. Can't imagine that's a problem.

I struggled on the room/deck/options but we ended up in a category 6 on deck 6 and let's hope it's a good room!

I look forward to all the good info from the rest of you!
