June 6, 2009--Anybody going?

Hi,

We booked this cruise on the Disney Magic several weeks ago. I was surprised that I didn't see a thread for this date. Anyway, we are Steve and Marilyn from Delaware. Cruising with us in a cabin next to ours will be DD, Karen, her husband, Mike, and their kids (my wonderful grandchildren), Mikey and Katy. The children will be 11 and 8 respectively by the time we cruise.

This is DH and my 2nd Disney cruise. We were on the Disney Wonder last November with our other daughter and youngest wonderful grandson for four nights.

We hope there will be other posters here.

Marilyn

OK, I am adding Grandma Debby's post (#36) to my original post (#1) so we can have a list right up front of everyone on the cruise and posting. Grandma Debby is calling us June Bugs (don't you love it?), so will add my and my daughter's information too. Anyone not on here, please post your information and I will add to this list. Also see list at the end of this post for participants in the Kids' exchange and the fish extender game. Thanks Grandma Debby

Welcome Dawn. I know its over a year until this cruise, but I am really surprised that there's not more folks on this thread. Other cruises we've taken (on other cruise lines) have often had very busy threads even way out. Hopefully more will join us.

Have you sent for the Disney cruise DVD? Its free and very good and shows so much about the ships and Castaway Cay which we really loved last time. I don't know what the teens club is like, but the kids clubs are great.

Hope you're having a nice Easter,

Marilyn

Nice to meet you

Marilyn,

I do have the vacation planning dvd, which I have watched often and pop in from time to time to give me a boost when it seems that our cruise date is soooo far away. I also recorded the latest travel channel special about DCL and have watched that a few times as well. Plenty of time to save money and get in shape though. We have also gotten our Disney Visa which we are using for everything to rack up some Disney dollars to spend while on board. I am certainly a planner and have to keep talking myself out of buying things now for the cruise. My plan is to look for some pirate costumes that will be on sale after this Halloween as well as some snorkel kits that should be reduced after the summer. Any tips you have will be greatly appreciated! Hope you had a Happy Easter!

Dawn, thats a really good idea about buying pirate apparal after Halloween. I really don't have any tips that I can think of at this point, but hopefully as we go along, will think of some.

I didn't see the DCL program on the Travel Channel. I'll try to watch for it. DD just told her kids yesterday that we're all going on the cruise. They are so EXCITED! We watched the Disney DVD today and DGS wants to watch it again and again and again.

Enjoy your planning and we will stay in touch on this board. Hopefully we will eventually be joined by others (unless we have the ship to ourselves). lol

Take care, Marilyn

We're Comming Too!!

Hi

We originally booked the June 20th cruise when the dates for the 09 cruises first came out and had to switch to this date due to conflicts. It will be me, DH and DS who will be 9 when we cruise. Our first Disney Cruise wa Nov 18th on the Wonder for 3 days and we we hooked so we rebooked on board and then changed to the 09 date.

Welcome Cruezen Mamma! It looks like you were on the Disney Wonder shortly after us. We were on her November 11th for a four nighter. Lots of fun, huh?

My DH was missing having a casino onboard to amuse himself with for awhile in the evenings, but he survived and will again on this cruise. He really liked Diversions on the Wonder, so I guess he'll spend some time in the counterpart on the Magic. He did go see "Ratatouille" one afternoon all by himself, and enjoyed it very much. Its a lovely ship.

We're on board also

Hey Taffy Girl - You have 2 threads going for this date (look at page 5) My family ( daughter & son-in-law and 3 granddaughters and my other daughter & maybe her boyfriend & myself) are on this cruise We are very blessed and have a 2 bedroom suite My granddaughters will be 11, 5 and 1 when we cruise so lets plan to exchange gifts with the kids - keep your eyes open for something from your state (keychains, little bags, candy, etc.) and when the time gets closer we will find out who all wants to join in We will spend a week at WDW then board the MAGIC and we can't wait

Hi Grandma Debby and welcome. I don't know how I started two threads; must have forgotten or got really confused. lol Anyway, I love your idea of having the kids exchange little gifts representing their home states. What a wonderful idea. It will also be a neat way to have them meet each other at a kids meet and greet.

How lucky you are to have a 2-room suite. We were waiting and watching for the 2009 cruise dates to open up and even then, we were too late to grab a suite. We would have loved to do that with the kids, but as it is, they will be right next door, so that will work out fine. Those suites look awesome though.

Glad to have you all joining us and we'll all look forward to lots more great folks joining those of us already posting.

wait list for suite

Taffy Girl - have your TA or DCL put you on a wait list for a suite. That is what we did and DCL called a couple of months ago and had both of the 2 bedroom suites available for this cruise. People book the suites and then when it comes time to pay deposits they back off so you might call and find out availability.

June 09 seems so far away!

Hi everyone
(Mom I made it to the post!) - I am Taffy Girl's (Marilyn) daughter and my family will also be on this trip. We told our kids at Easter about going on the trip and they are so excited. They want to watch the DVD over and over again. (Wonder how quickly the DVD can wear out....or just send them over to Grandma's house to watch hers ).

I think it will be lots of fun counting down to June '09 together with everyone on this thread.

We're on-board!!!

Hello Taffygirl, disneydka, CRUIZEN MAMMA, Grandma Debby, and kat123

...we will be a group of 16 among five rooms, all kids at heart but for Disney's purposes 11 adults and 5 children (DD 11, Dnephews 6&7, Dtwin nieces 2).

disneydka...we are just outside of Columbia, SC in Irmo. Small world after all!!

Grandma Debby...our DD 11 was stoked to read about another 11 yr old girl on our cruise...she's a little older than the other kids in our group and loves them but also loves her tween friends as well. Hopefully they will meet each other.

We were on the Wonder for a VERY short 3 day in May,2005. This time will be my three sisters and their families along with our mother who will celebrate her 77th birthday while on-board. This will be a first cruise for several in our family. What a place to start...with Disney!!! While we've enjoyed cruising on other lines, there is nothing to compare with that Disney touch.

Looking forward to counting down with everyone here!!

DIsney Cruise special on Travel Channel

I read this morning on the Cruiseline Forum that the DCL special is going to be on the travel channel SUnday morning at 10:00am. If anyone has not seen, it is a great addition to the vacation planning DVD. They show some sketches of the new ships at the end. I have it taped and like to watch it often!

mousecraszy- We actually used to live in Columbia off of leesburg road, and are familiar with IRMO. It is a small world indeed. I will be having a 7 yr old boy on cruise as well. My DD will be 16 at the time so she will be spending some time (OK ALL her time) in the Stack. OF course there will be the obligatory family times. Can't wait to meet everyone. This will be our FIRST crusie EVER!
