What kind of insurance are you looking for? I would think your travel agent should be able to help you. Usually, any kind of "special" insurance is a bit of a rip-off.

We used *****************. They let you compare lots of different options. Then you contact the company directly. This is how we got our trip insurance for this summer. Good luck!!!

Aaron and JoAnn #2, prayers and pixie dust to your family.

Do we still have 35 FE's?

How many people are doing the Grand Gathering at Epcot the night before we leave?

So we almost finished packing-out today. But just as they were going to start loading the crates, the sky got all dark in the East. Then huge billowing clouds of red dusts appeared on the horizon. It was amazing to watch them. It honestly looked like a huge raging fire pushing smoke and embers into the air - instead it was red dust!!!!

We got everything back in the house just as the storm hit. The air was thick with dust - you could hardly breathe!!!

The movers were bummed that they couldn't finish, but I joked that it was just the Burkina dust coming to bid us a final farewell!!!

But once the rains came about 30 minutes later, the air cleared out and the temperature dropped about 20 degrees. But then it rained or drizzled for the next hour, making it too wet to actually load the crates.

So, one more day of movers!!! (But that means one more day out of the office! - I am sooooo checked out!!!)

I always use insuremytrip dot com

Very good prices, a lot to choose from. I cannot tell you how good they are because all I have ever done is give them my money, I've never had to actually use them.

FE Update

I have updated the FE list in post 1. PLEASE take a look and let me know if it has the information you want included. There are a number of participants that don't have names (real and/or screen). More of us have unknown stateroom numbers (hooray for upgrades and FL rates).

Just make sure things are correct. I've tried to keep up but sometimes there are so many posts in a day it's easy to miss something. Especially if there's a up for grabs! Also, for those you just joining us, let me know if you want to joing the FE exchange.

I almost have my FE gifts complete Now I'm trying to decide if I should ship or carry on....

Thanks for the suggestion guys. I'll have to check out that website. I've looked at others but they all exclude preexisting conditions. We do not use a TA. I do everything for our trips whether it is booking through member services or something non Disney. I would annoy a TA to death because I hate to let others plan things I need to have control.

Noahsmom, was someone in your group in one of your cruises in this room?

We are 6 doors down from StarWood
Wow - how did you know that we were in 6088 once? In fact that was our very first cruise - on the Wonder. We are in 6086, so we are neighbors! Keep it down would you? We can party on our adjoining verandas!

QUESTION FOR PEOPLE HOW BOUGHT SHIRTS:

Has anyone gotten the shirts with dates from cafe press? Do they actually have a gray box around them in person or is that just a glitch in the pictures online? I cant figure out why that one has it and the other one doesnt.


Hi Everyone! This is our first time to post We have been following the thread for months and finally could not resist getting in on the conversation. I think we are officially addicted to at least reading daily. My sister (Charleen) has posted a few times on our entire groups behalf. So, we are already on the FE exchange list.

You guys are a fun group and we are getting so excited for the cruise. It is our first Disney Cruise with our DS(Jacob 9) and DD(Abigail 6). I hope to meet some of you at the meets so the kids can meet others their age.

So....the FE has been ordered, FE gifts are in process and the shirts have arrived. Thanks Virgil for such a great shirt design. We loved it so much my DH(Stan) and I had to have 2, one with the date and one without. In response to the above question, the one with the date does have a light gray block, even on a white shirt.

Tricia
