I work right across from a fitness place, so I have no excuse. It's an 8 week program that combines fitness and nutrition. Costs 175 dollars, which hurts. Hopefully it will jumpstart a new me healthwise.

I have already booked my flights, rooms at Kidani, and now I just need to get our passports renewed.

I hope my wife and I can get a reservation to Palo one night.

Also, I hope Dreams is working hard on this cruise as they have been occupied with a lot of traveling lately. Before they know it June will be here.

I wrapped up DCL pins and gave them to my kids on Christmas. They were totally surprised and excited as they have been asking and asking to go on a Disney cruise!
I've booked our flights. Friday, June 22nd is the last day of school for my kids. We're flying to MCO on Saturday. I think we'll take a car service to the Port and find a hotel there. I'm still researching which one (although I'm happy to hear suggestions - family of 5 with 3 young children staying one night pre-cruise).
We'll spend the weekend after the cruise at Disney but I haven't made any arrangements for that yet. I'm hoping there will be some room discounts available so we can stay CL at BC (my DH's 1st choice) but I'm flexible. I'm also figuring we should just take a car service from the Port to Disney post-cruise. DCL transfers are pricey for a family of 5!
I'm running my 1st marathon next weekend so I'm been focused on that instead of the cruise but once the race is over I will be here often! We were supposed to go on the Dream in October for my 40th birthday but had to cancel because my son was in the hospital for 2 weeks this fall and we didn't want to risk anything happening to him while we were on a cruise ship. I've only been on any cruise once and that was 13 or more years ago so I'll have lots and lots of questions!!!!

Some of you really obsessive folks out there may know that the Weather Channel can give you the forecast for Castaway Cay.

Hi Amanda
glad to finally find you on the same thread.
You've beaten WEbmasterJohn in your number of posts. So even if you have a lot of questions, i'm sure you've also got a lot of advice too.
Hope your marathon ran well.
We'll be travelling to WDW on the Saturday also. I've switched from Boardwalk to Animal kingdom to finally Bay Lake towers for that night. After the cruise we're staying at Boardwalk villas.
If I don't get to see you in person at least we can keep up here on the boards.
Brenda

Hey Brenda,
We're staying at BWV after the cruise as well! We fly in the night before the cruise, actually get into the airport at 12:30am and are just staying there for the night! Still working on our transportation to the port and after!

Can't wait to meet more of this awesome group of people!

Started my biggest loser program yesterday, it's not going to be easy. Going home for lunch today and will take doggy on a nice walk/run (more walking than running).

Gotta send in my passport renewals still.

I second that emotion zendisney and can't wait to meet you and all the other Dis'ers! Have spent FAR too much time looking into everything about this cruise! But it's much more fun than most anything else....
