Off clip ons

Hi all! I am going to test out the Off clip ons this weekend when we go camping. I'll let you know how I make out with them.....

AND.....ta da! The fish extender gifts are finally done! I may have chosen some different gifts if I had known how much time they would take! But, I think everyone will like them......just don't tell me if you don't (I may cry).

You aren't supposed to keep the verandah door open so they shouldn't affect your stateroom. There is a sign up on the door frame and I think one cruise we had a letter/note in the stateroom to that effect. It messes up the heating/cooling system in the room, is one reason we were told they post that.

No, that is the Sutton or something like that. Pan is 90%. I haven't seen it available for a couple weeks.

I just checked and the 4 star at 90% is the Wall Center Sheraton. We are staying there on the 23rd because I couldn't get the Pan for that night. It is just .8 miles from the port and looks very nice. The 5 star hotel is Sutton. I have no idea what the 5 star condo is, haven't seen that listed anywhere before.

I agree... we wouldn't keep it open when we weren't there, but trying to compete with little insects when we are at Tracy Arm going in and out would be a big hassle....

Talking New to this forum and first time Disney Cruise

Hi everybody, I hope you don't mind me popping into your forum. We will be going on this cruise with you all. Sure wish I hadn't missed out on the FE - it sounds like fun.

I am surprising my DH and DS (6 year old) with this cruise. I booked it 7 months ago and it has been a long haul keeping it a surprise. They think we are going camping for a few days and should be totally surprised when Mickey Mouse calls on Monday the 25th to welcome them to the cruise. I will have the video camera ready and rolling.

Hope to meet some of you in person.

Terri

Congrats on FE and luggage!

Sorry to hear about your mom. Was she coming on the cruise with you too? I hope everything's okay!

We are having a kids' meet at the Mickey Pool at 3pm on Embarkation Day. You'd be more than welcome to join us there! I think that's pretty much the only official "meet" we have for this bunch.

We surprised our girls with a DCL cruise to the Baltic last year. We sent them off to school with a secret message. They were to open it on the bus and follow the instructions. Then each clue led them to another teacher who had a clue they had to figure out throughout the day. All the clues were related to something they had learned during the school year AND places we were going on the cruise. The last clue told them to say good-bye to their teachers because they wouldn't be coming back to school the next day (it was the last week of school). Then on the Front Door we had the DCL logo and all the suitcases packed and ready to head to the airport when they got home. They were sooooo surprised! We had even had them corresponding with other kids who would be on the cruise, but they thought they were friends for our cruise the following year. All the kids were in on it and kept the secret really well. It did backfire slightly though because the girls thought we were going to Florida and Castaway Cay - not England. But they quickly got over that! Good luck with the surprise!!!!

As for the FE - some folks may have made extras and I think we've had one person drop out - still trying to reach her and confirm. So if you want to participate, you might be able to do it with a few cabins.

Welcome Aboard!!!!

We will be able to add another room since we have not done ours yet!! Can you say running behind!!! But, I do have very good excuses and will be getting on that today!! And you would not need to recipricate with us if you do not have time to deal with it. We would just be willing to put a little something in yours and let you enjoy if you care to let us know your stateroom number. Let's see....I think I have that list printed off here somewhere.

Thanks everybody. Terri 41, John 51 and Josh 6. We are in cabin 6521. Can someone tell me what I really need to do for a fish extender because I don't really know. I know that it is a small gift or treat for each of the cabins on the list but that is all I know. More excited by the day.

thanks 3princessmommy. Can you give me details on how to do a FE. I would love to participate even if we are sort of an add on. Sounds like a big part of the whole disney experience. Cabin 6521 John, Terri and Josh (6 year old boy)
