*waves at the other table!* I'm glad you're enjoying reading my report. There's LOTS more to come! Wow! You're right. It's been a month! Right about now, a month ago, we'd just finished the muster drill, and were settling in! Amazing!

Aw, thank you, beansf! It *is* a lot of work, but it's a labor of love! More, soon.

We're super excited and even more excited now to read your report! We are, more than likely, going to end up in the same boat you were because we are probably going to link up with other DISers for meals rather than eat with the other ABD folks (since we're doing the B2B, we think we'd rather eat at the same table with the same group of DIS friends for the full 24 nights than to eat with ABD folks for the first portion and then switch to a new set of tablemates for the crossing).

We are crossing our fingers, however, that we'll at least be in the same dining rotation as the ABD folks so that we can hope over and say hi....or maybe even get lucky and be seated near them! (Anybody have any idea if there's a way to insure that we get the same rotation as the ABD group? Is it always the rotation that starts with Lumiere's?)
You guys should, hopefully, have Robyn & Tina as your guides. They are FABULOUS, and fun, and knowledgeable, and just really *made* this trip. In other words, typical Adventure Guides!

I really have no suggestion on getting on the same rotation as the others on the ABD. It may happen automatically (it did for me). It *was* nice to be able to bip over to their tables, say "Hi", see folks dressed up for Pirate night, etc. And the Guides made it over to Table 32 occassionally to harrass me.

Since you're doing a B2B, I'm going to assume you're big cruising & DCL fans. You're going to love the addition of the ABD. There is definitely a quality there that's hard to beat, and they hopefully should have the few wrinkles worked out by then!

More Trip Report as soon as I can!

Nice trip report. Can I ask how you managed to retrieve your pictures from the corrupt camera card *** in the same position myself and gutted that i've lost pics from my nephews last birthday party Really wanted to try get them back..
Loving your pics btw was thinking of doing the cruise next year maybe. Did you go solo on the cruise?

Thanks! Glad you liked the report.

I took the bad memory card to Best Buy, and they said there was nothing they could do, but they could send it out to another place that could definitely recover them for a LOT of $$$$. Alternately, he suggested that I go to SanDisk's website, where they had a link to some recovery software they recommend, RescuePro by LC Technologies. The software was able to recognize the card as a drive, and found 98% of the stuff that was on the card (including hundreds of pictures I'd previously deleted, but, oh well, the ones I wanted were in there with the rest.) I first ran the Demo version, to make sure it could actually find the pictures, but the Demo version doesn't allow you to save what it finds. Since it found them, I went ahead & spent the $40 to buy the software, and recovered almost all of my pictures. One quirk I found is that it retrieved video as multiple snapshots, so it looked like there were a TON more pictures that I'd really taken.

If you need any help with the software, let me know. But LC Technologies' technical help were really responsive.

Thanks, 2GirlsMama! There will be plenty more to read. My biggest challenge is that I'm only allowed 25 pictures per post!
