Hey, where is everyone today??? It's lonely here on the boards.

Anyway, did you guys check out the new mock ups of the Disney Dream. Holy crap I want to get on that ship!!! The slide is awesome!!! I think I might have to go on it alone as my DD might chicken out. Oh well, mommy won't!!

DH wants to actually do B2Bs on that ship (need to get to the Gold status). I'll check the schedule once all the dates are announced.

Wine tasting or perhaps a martini tasting
Afternoon show to help free up the evening
Adult pool
Mickey pool with the kids
Maybe a trip to the spa

Can we go now?

Yep a B2B would be fun. I AM at Gold status now. How does that help me?

Yes, we can go now....let's go!!! I can't wait another day (though my still-empty luggage and huge unfolded laundry pile tell another story )

Allison, I can have my daughter resend her last email too. and the dream looks SERIOUSLY awesome!

So awesome to see the new faces!!!!

Hey BoundforDisney, it looks like skateboards are on the "no no" list for stuff allowed on the ship... BUT the place rents boards. You might want to look into it if your GS is going to want to buy one there...I wonder if there would be some way to check it till you got back home, etc...MY husband is beside himself--the park is REALLY amazing. My son still doesn't know. Are you just going to take a taxi?

I'd love to hear what excursions people are taking if you'd all like to share...We still are really undecided (well except the skatepark now)

Nice to see some new faces! Dive in....


Add me to the "lets go now!" list...

Well.....maybe not riiiiiiiiiight now. I'm still hacking up a lung from a cold...so I guess I could stand to get a little better before going. I'm getting nervous with the 3 kids, and this being sickville time of year...*fingers crossed*....I need every one to be healthy for this cruise. What did you suggest I give them Jen??

What's everyone doing for Halloween? We went trick-or-treating at the Town Hall this morning with playgroup. We got too much candy already. Ya see...I'm trying to lose weight and as the Maxine Hallmark character reminds..."Fun size candybars do NOT make for a fun sized butt...." ....I keep dipping into the stash. Plus, tomorrow we go
TorTing at the nursing home, then to a party, then TorTing in my parents neighborhood. Ohhhh the candy.

We still have to carve our pumpkin once Belle gets off the bus...Then it's off for some ME time....out to dinner and drinks with my BFF to celebrate my B-day!!!!!! YAY!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited. I can go to the bathroom....alone.childless.without anyone. nobody.zip.zero.just.me....hehe....Don't get me wrong...I'm thankful to be able to stay home with my kids, and I love them dearly...blah....blah....blah...but they drive me stark raving mad sometimes...and I cherish nights like tonight.....

What fun plans do you have for the weekend?

I still haven't started packing....but I do have most of MY dinner attire planned... Thats about the extent though. I really am going to start packing the summer stuff...it's just hard when it's been so cold. It is going to be hot, right? PLEASE tell me it's going to be hot!!!! Anyone cruise this similiar cruise this time of year?

Oh...and I have not looked at the Dream yet. Jen keeps telling me I should. I'm scared that if I look at it, I'll want to go on it....

Halloween Fun!

We live out in the country so we only get a couple of trick or treater's. We take the kids to a friend's neighborhood which is out in the country too but the houses are closer together. The men and women take turns each year pulling the trailer around with the 4-wheeler while the other half stays in the garage and has their own treats

The girls already have a huge mixing bowl full of candy! I brought some to work today so others could eat it. I agree with you Steph....not so much fun when you can't fit into your jeans the next week!

Allison, I can't believe your boss would even consider not letting you take your vacation! Doesn't he understand cancellation policies? Has he/she never been on a vacation? Or maybe he/she makes enough money that the cancellation fee's don't matter. Well not me Sista! I'm going to be busy up until the time we go and right when we get back. Projects are being put on hold until I get back. I haven't been on vacation for 3 years and NOTHING...NOTHING I say is going to stop me! I'm with ya Jeff - Let's go now!

Shelley

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it took me a few days to work out we had a new thread I am just putting it down to wedding brain

Well the countdown is well and truly on 14 days till our home reception, 17 days till we leave for the US & 33 days till our DCL Wedding (yes itís odd and has a long & boring story but we are having our home reception before we are married )

We have almost finalised details for our DCL wedding (we have to wait another week for our full confirmation), if you wanted to come & check it out, it will be on Thursday 3rd Dec in the afternoon (hopefully 4ish) onboard on deck 7. Unfortunately we have the max number we are allowed on the deck 7, but you get a great view from the deck above, so please come down and check it out from above if you would like too. After the ceremony we are having photo's around the ship, so if you see us, come up and say Hi

Tomorrow I will finish off the FE lists and email them out, anyone who would like to join & hasn't don't be shy just send me your details and I will add you in vhodgson79@hotmail.com

Currently this is only approx as I need to add in a few final details:
17 Families
20 staterooms
18 Kids

I still need emails from:
Boundfordisney
jd99
Morgan's Mommy
Mom22tinks (if you wanted to participate)

If you can send an email to me I will attached the spreadsheet and return to you. I apologies if you did send it & I missed it I have triple checked and don't seem to have one from the above families so please resend. Also I am having a PM problem (or no one has sent me any messages in a few weeks ) as one of the other DCL brides sent me a few messages and they didnít come through, so please drop me a note to my email till I work it out.

Thanks guys and cant wait to meet you all

You are definitely having PM problems because I sent you the link to the new thread. I didn't want you to have to look for us. Did you do something and have your PM ability taken away from you?? Has this group of cruisers become the bad boy(girl) thread of the dis?

Happy Halloween everyone!! It's raining this morning. Hopefully things will clear up for tonight. DD has a big schedule planned for today. 5 p.m. - trunk or treat at the high school (who thought of this?? ), 6 p.m. at a friend's house for 90 minutes and back to our house for some fast trick or treating around our neighborhood. And the kicker is that she only likes plain Hershey bars and m&ms. I'll end up taking everything to the office. I think she really just likes the quest.

And now for the cruise update -

One month from today we will be in Grand Cayman!!!

Well, hello again! I am finally starting to get excited about the upcoming cruise. Allison's announcements are helping too! I briefly introduced myself a while back, but now that I've signed up for FE's and stuff I figure I better just do the GTKY too. So, here it goes:
General GTKYÖ

2. Are you married? How long? Yes, 10 years

3. Do you have any children? Ages? Yes, DD 9, DD 7

4. Do you have any pets?Yes. Cooper who is a maltese. What a character he is! For what it costs to board him while we are away it would probably be cheaper to have him come cruising with us!

5. What do you do for a living? Work? Stay at home? I am a SAHM for the past 9 years.

6. What is your favorite movie? I have two. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Wizard of Oz.

10. What type of music do you listen to? Do you have a favorite group/singer/band etc.? I like alot of the new pop stuff. Anything with an up beat really.

11. Where did you do your schooling from? High School -Warwick Vally, Warwick NY. After that I went to community college and got my paralegal cerificate. Would and should go back to school now that I have the time. Still don't know what I want to be when I grow up though!

12. Do you like sports? What's your favorite team? Not really into sports. Can handle baseball. Will watch nascar.

13. How many siblings do you have? 2 older sisters and brother, and 8 step brothers.

14. Did you always want to be a XXX? (your profession) Still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.. lol

17. Any particular cuisines or dishes that you like the most?

18. What is your attitude when it comes to money? Are you a spender or a saver? Both, save, then spend.

19. What does your name mean? Wikipedia Definition : means "God behold"

20. When is your birthday? March 12

21. What is your zodiac sign? Pisces

22. What are your preferences when it comes to clothes and fashion? Mostly casual as its easier running the kids around. Favorite store is NY and Company.

hmm might say, maybe I think I have sorted it now. I don't know if you guys have ever ventured over to the main wedding section but the DCL bride thread can get very heated at times it sounds worse than it is but basically all the previous DCL brides were very well taken care of and now with all the cost cutting & lay offs at DFTW the current DCL brides have had a tough time and it causes friction lets say I generally leave well enough alone but sometimes

Jess got your email thanks

I just have three questions and then we are finished

1) Has anyone heard from Morgan's Mommy are they still participating as I need stateroom numbers (and guest details would be good too) but room number a must

2) Have we had any new cruises join the new thread?

3) Don are you still GTY? two of our cabins are still GTY but I am hoping to get numbers for them today.
