09/13/09 SSMC09 S.S. Member Cruise 2009 - Part 3!

Welcome to thread #3!

Thread #1 can be found here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1962519

Thread #2 can be found here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2125175

Ladies and gentlemen I give you the 2009 DIS Member Cruise webpages:

Main Web Page

Member Photo Gallery


We (Mark and Mary) are thrilled to be sailing on the 2009 Member cruise with all of you. We've set up the website above as we have for past Member Cruises.

In addition as in past years we will make gifts of buttons to all the DISers and their families. We do this as a way to identify the DISers to each other. We ask only 3 things: 1) you must be a poster on the DIS. In the past we've had people who just found our site via web searches. 2) we ask for your cabin number for the buttons so we can deliver them if you miss the meet. If you want your cabin posted on the site and in the mini navigator so others can find you great - if you want it kept secret we will do that as well. 3) only ask for a button if you are going to wear it. They do cost money and we would hate to waste the money if you aren't going to wear it.

Button Sign-up is now closed!

The Logo

Btw, permission IS given to grab the logo below for your own siggie. That's why it's there. Thanks to Time4disneynow/Monika for the original artwork


If you've never done that before, here's some easy instructions!

Highlight the following line, right click and select copy:
[img]http://photopost.wdwinfo.com/data/500/36347ssmc2009G.gif[/img]

Click on UserCP above.
Click on Edit Signature.
Right click and paste, select Done

DIS MEETS

As noted on the website we have two DIS meets set up. These are based on past Member Cruises and what has worked well. Of course it is up to the group as a whole so if someone has another idea for time/place for the DIS meets let us know. Also if anyone is staying out by the Port Saturday night by all means set up a DIS meet there. We've done that before and it is great fun.

What you can do!

That's what we've taken on, but there are many other things you can do to help make this cruise great.

First and foremost become a regular poster. As we all get to know each other is where the fun comes in.

Things we've done on past cruises that you could volunteer to do:

Linked dining - on past cruises someone took up the job of linking the DIS group in dining. This could be one person willing to do it for both seatings or two people (one for early and one for late). We can put you in contact with who has done it in the past to find out how. Update - Flo is handling this!


Fish extenders - organizing the exchange of little gifts between DISers. Update - Flo is organizing this!

Pirates/Swans - a little game we play on the thread based on each 99th post and each 100th post. Update: Gary (OKWMEMBER) who gave us the game on the 2008 thread has volunteered to be the pirate master this year as well even though he isn't sailing with us. Thanks Gary.

Group Party Bus - something we did in 2006. Update: Annmarie has volunteered to look into and organize the party bus!


T-shirts - back in 2005 and 2006 we had group t-shirts. We haven't the past couple of years. Either way works fine, but if someone wants to organize this through cafe press etc. have at it.

Anything else you've done with past cruise groups or something new you'd like to do for this group? Let's hear about it.

Well that is about it - any questions just ask away.

Pirates and Swans:

Pirate postings - on the last Member cruise thread Gary OKWMember came up with the pirate game where each 100th post got a pirate (and later we added each 99th post got an Elizabeth Swan). We even gave prizes away at the onboard DIS meet. Gary has volunteered to be Pirate Master again even though he isn't sailing with us. We'll have a prize for the DISer with the most pirates and the most swans at the onboard DIS meet.

Fish Extenders Sign Up Is Now Closed!


Flo (wltdsnyfan) has offered to organize the Fish Extender program. PM her if you are interested in joining. Here's what she has to say about it:

Also, everyone has two in the room except were I have it listed.

The ones that have ** in front of them have one adult in the room. The ones that have *** have 3 adults in the room and the ones that have **** have 4 adults in a room.

So far there are 37 cabins.

Please keep in mind the cut off to participate in the Fish Extender exchange is August 12, 2009. This way it gives everyone time to get there items.
If any one would like a list with room numbers and such before the SSM09 send me an e mail (girlwolf@excite.com) or PM me your e mail address and after the cut off I will send you the spreadsheet.

Party Bus Will Not be taking place

Annmarie looked into setting up a chartered bus from WDW to the port and back. Here's what she has to say:

Quote:
Party Bus: There were approximately 25 people who wanted to do the party bus but unfortunately that number is too low to charter a bus. My thought (while not as fun as a party bus) is perhaps each resort or area organizes transportation to/from your area or resort and the port. This should still be less expensive than than using Disney's transportation.


Linked Dining Is Now Closed!

Flo (wltdsnyfan) has volunteered to handle the linking of dining for the group. Thanks Flo! Linking with other DISers adds a lot of fun to the cruise because you can get to know each other here before sailing. That way you aren't sitting with strangers you are sitting with DIS friends.

Button sign up is now closed. No more button requests will be taken. Please note that we will have some blanks at the DIS meets and sharpies.

Flo let me know when you want me to mark the Fish Extender sign up closed.

On line check in question

Hi! I was starting to fill out the on-line check in forms and I have a question. The instructions say that we must fill out a charging form for everyone in the cabin. Does that mean that we can each have our room charges do to separate credit cards?

Yes, if everyone in the stateroom has a credit card, then each person/s charges can be done to separate credit cards.
