That's a great site!
Have had mine made for a couple weeks now.
Stocked up on Bonine today - just in case.
And started getting things together for the FE.
Can ya tell we're anxious to get going?

Laundry facilities on board

This is probably not high on anybody's list of things that they want to know about the Dream but here is a list of where the Dream laundry facilities are:
deck 10 midship - starboard - opposite 10572
deck 9 forward - starboard - opposite 9500
deck 8 aft - port - opposite 8150
deck 7 forward - port - opposite 7014
deck 6 forward - starboard - opposite 6508
deck 5 most aft - - opposite 5192
deck 2 forward - port - opposite 2002

Its going to be a factor for Val & I because we'll be away from home for 9+ nights on this trip. At least two nights before and two after the cruise. No way are we packing enough clothes for that long. Add to that our 9YO Grandson is going to be with us and doing laundry is a must.

Laundry is one of those "necessary evils" that follows us even on vacation.
At the World, we usually try to have a 1 bedroom villa so we have the washer/dryer in the room. On the cruise, we plan a laundry day halfway through.

I believe the laundry room closest to us is one floor up on 10. It seems closer than the one on 9, but I'll have to check it out once we get on board.
I do like that we don't have to carry quarters on the ship!

Thanks Jeff!

Hoping to not have to do any laundry while on the cruise but if necessary it is really near our room on Deck 7. We have a 1BR at BWV after the cruise and plan on doing laundry when we get check in on Friday!

Thanks for the info, Jeff! You are so thorough!

See you next Saturday!

Red face Hello?

Sooo....DH is insisting I say hi, and try to make some DIS friends for the cruise. I'm gonna round that opening off by saying that I'm very shy, and rarely ever post on ANY of the threads I read, just to be sure I don't make an a#s of myself.
This being said, I am myself interested in making some 'disboard' friends, in the hopes of knowing some nice people on the boat.

So HI!
I'm Amber, DH is Mike. This will be our first cruise experience (single and as a couple), and we are both super excited. We are both in our late 20s, married for 7 years this may. DD is 6 and will be joining us after the cruise (as a surprise) for a week at the parks. My mum will be flying down with her once school lets out. We have already completed our Fish extender, and look forward to all the socializing this will bring. DH has been working on our offerings for months, and everything looks fantastic.
Anyways, I guess that's it for now, so thanks for reading

PS:Any other Canucks out there?

How, then does laundry on the ship work? We're spending 2 days pre/ and 2 days post cruise at WDW and I might have to do a load or two 1/2 way through.....

You use your key card for the washers and dryers.
They do have detergent and dryer sheets available for purchase (laundromat sizes- high prices). I prefer to bring the Purex 3 in 1 laundry sheets. They are so easy to pack and do a great job!

Hi Amber. Welcome Aboard!
Can't say that we're Canucks, but we are from around Buffalo, NY way. Where abouts in Ontario are you?
Looking forward to meeting you and your husband.
Can't wait! It's exactly 4 months from today!!!

GO LEAFS GO --- HOME!!!

Just kidding - I'm not a hockey fan - tho I can hear my DH & DS hooting & hollering upstairs while watching the Sabres vs the Rangers.

BTW - just heard the Sabres lost. Oh well....

Looking forward to meeting you!

Cool! You're almost local to us! We're in the Cleveland area, but DH and I met in college at Fredonia and he's originally from Rochester. Most of our friends are Buffalonians by birth. We're actually going to a wedding in Buffalo in early June before the cruise. (One of the grooms is a Disney CM! How's that for a small world!) We'll have to be sure to find each other on PCC 3.0. Between the western NY connection and the boys-the-same-age thing, we should have plenty to talk about!

Getting excited...
-Hillary
