Going to get the passports renewed this Saturday. I also think I'll make my final payment as I've done a good job of saving money for the last year.

Then I just need to decide about any excursions or special reservations.

This trip is coming up super fast.

Final payment made as well as payoff of DVC loan (thanks tax refund!)!!!!!

Passport renewed today.

Can't book Palo until April 20 and not holding my breath since we're LOW on the totem pole.

Getting closer!

We're in the same boat, Denise as far as the reservations go.
I really hope we can get Palo sometime during our cruise, but if not, we'll be higher up the totem pole for our "next" cruise, right?
Good Luck!

Palo

I booked our Palo at midnight Saturday night and all the Palo Brunch reservations were gone when I logged in at 12:01. I just checked and Palo dinner reservations are open for every night and every time from 6-8:30 pm. I hope you get what you want.

Thanks fast43!

Even if we don't get Palo, we'll still be on a Disney cruise, right?!?

Hope you're able to get your brunch if/when someone cancels.

BOO! We were hoping for a brunch. Dinner would be good but DH and I don't want to take the chance of missing Animator's Palate on the rotational dining.

Is there a way I can find that out before I book?

We logged in as well at midnight, took a little bit to look around, we got palo when we wanted, and about 15 mins later, we were able to get brunch as well. guess we got lucky!

I logged on at 8am, not realizing I could have logged in 12.01am on 3/11/12. So no Palo brunch left "all sold out".
We have our pick of any evening or time for Palo dinner, but decided it wouldn't be right to let DD15 eat by herself. So we'll accompany her to dinner then let her hang out in Vibes for the rest of the evening while we have a late dinner in Palo.

I feel your pain, hgb4!

Not sure if it will help, but you don't have to "dine" with your daughter in the MDR. Depending on her food preferences, she may prefer to eat at Cabanas with you on your Palo nite. My son (when he was a teenager) would have jumped at the chance, but my 2 daughters would have much preferred the MDR. Just trying to offer a little hint - not that we've ever cruised before; but it's something I've picked up along the way...
Hopefully a brunch spot will open for you and solve the problem altogether.
Good Luck!

Good luck to all the other "low men"

we chose to do the late palo as well so we can dine with our 16 year old DD every night. We figure we will just eat very light that night, then do palo when she goes to the teen club. the one rule we have when we cruise is we all have dinner together each night no matter what, but we usually spend a lot of time together as a family anyways.

Yes I agree. We rarely see our DD16 on cruises during the rest of the day, so meal times are important, since I'm sure if we're not there she just get french fries and chicken nuggets.
Cabanas is a good idea too.We still might be able to see one of the evening shows.

I'm so very happy that I've made my last cruise payment

Now I just have to wait until the 26th before I can make shore excursions.
