Dont forget to pack plenty of cherry chapstick.

Perhaps you can track down a certain redhead to help Rob with the babysitting while you're gone.

No red heads allowed

I didn't get a tag, but I did save a lot on my car insurance by calling Geico....

NO problem at all! I remember constantly checking my email to see if I got any response from Disney {I was really hoping for the email to come ON Christmas!!! Now that would have been a great Christmas Morning, LOL}

Great job on the startup babe!
You don't have to worry about red heads here unless Kira and I do some painting; in which case there might be one.

Hmm, maybe I should post our version of the trip report too. Kira & Robe's adventures without Mom...
It wouldn't be near as much fun as Cass' & Michelle's adventure though, and not nearly as warm in weather and nice scenery.

I am positive you two will have a blast and looks like lots of learning about DCL as well!

I agree Lori! I'd love to see a trippie from Rob. He can title it: "My wife went on a Dream cruise to the Caribbean and all I got was Calgary".

OK, I am 3/4 packed now I think all that's left is the stuff I will need the morning of the 27th...toiletries, hair dryer, etc.

Had to go out and buy an 8GB CF for the camera because we only have a 1GB card and that will not do me for a 2.5 hour tour of the Dream!

My brother and sister-in-law are letting me borrow their camcorder since ours is broken so now I can take video too

Kira will be with grandma the night before I leave which now allows Rob to take me to the airport He might regret making those arrangements come 4:30 Thursday morning

If we can arrange it on board, Michelle and I have decided to do Palo for dinner. I am really looking forward to the dining rooms and the new menus

We don't get our cruise docs until we get to the resort so we are anxious to see what stateroom we will be in. There's still tons of availability so we are thinking we will get an inside room. Normally I wouldn't be all that thrilled to be in an inside room but I would love to see the Virtual Portholes so I don't mind at all

Rob arranged for a USA plan for my iPhone while I am down there. It's still expensive but not nearly as expensive as not getting one and just roaming! When I got sick last May and he and Kira were down in Texas, his cell phone bill for the 2.5 days it took him to get back to Calgary was over $150 just for a few calls, a few texts and roaming charges

I think it cost $14 extra for the plan (for the month) and then it will cost me $1 per MB for data on 3G (plus $0.65 per text ) while I am down there. Since I mostly use WiFi or our alloted 3G data at home, Rob downloaded an app for me to track my data usage. He set it up so that it will warn me when I am at 10MB ($10!) and I've had it on for the past few days and have been monitoring just how fast I go through 10 MB and boy, it really does go fast!!! So, I won't be using my phone very much while I am there!

But I am looking forward to trying out my Undercover Tourist App for WDW wait times I won't use it much but I WILL try it to see how accurate it is

I'm also bringing my netbook because it's great for travelling! Plus I will need somewhere to dump all the photos I take

I will be able to use it at the Calgary airport, as well as the Orlando airport on the way home, since they both have free WiFi and I will be stuck at MCO for hours and hours!!!

I'm soooooo essssited!!!!!!!!!!!

9 more sleeps!!!
