I know I'm a little late to the party, but we've had a room reserved for over a year for the TG 2012 Fantasy cruise.

We are transplants to Minnesota but happily plan to stay. As you will see from our descriptions, we're usually glued to computer screens, so we're happy to have an internet-free zone for a week. Here's a snapshot of our family:

Dyanne (mom) - Project manager who loves to organize all the nooks and crannies of her house

Andy (dad) - works in healthcare and loves to play WOW and hang out with our kids

Madi (daughter, 15) - the "white sheep" of our family... outgoing, a cheerleader, loves to be around people

Nina (daughter, 13) - quiet, likes Futurama, way into internet memes, is capable of being very funny and personable in low-key group settings

Sam (son, 10) - kind-hearted and loves his friends, slightly sneaky (like his mama ), quite industrious and already knows his way around the ship

Looking forward to sailing with everyone!

This will be our last Thanksgiving cruise as my son will be a high school Senior this year. Next year he is off to college!
Can't wait to see the decorations!!

They started putting up christmas decorations on the last day of our Halloween cruise on the dream so we got a nice preview for this up coming trip.

Hello fellow turkey cruisers!

Just off the Dream...wow, what a gorgeous ship! Booked this cruise while onboard~We will have the "grand slam" after sailing on the Fantasy! Can't wait!

Our 6th DC but our first one during a holiday! I am thrilled to read there will be Christmas decorations & a gingerbread house being made! & how lucky our Sea day is Turkey Day too!

It will be me and my DS 12 (turning 13 in January). He loved the Edge on the Dream & it gave him some freedom & he met some nice tweens too!

I don't facebook, so I will be communicating here & if you have a tween who will be in the Edge, let's exchange emails if you'd like to so the kids can "meet" before the cruise. Let me know who's out there! TIA

Add us to the list?

Hi, all. We will also be on the Thanksgiving cruise on the Fantasy. My 60th birthday is in early November and I thought taking the whole family on a Disney Cruise would help me get through it!

We are:

Me, Faery Grandmother, Disney maniac. Kind of a Disney late bloomer. Went a few times without catching the bug, but then, in 2002, I took my 2.5 year old first grandchild, and fell in love with all things Disney as seen through her eyes. Been over 25 times since then.

DH, also a Disney nut. Loves to dress up like Disney characters, best Grandfather ever.

Ken, Jamie, Cameron (12) and Brandon (8): 1st time cruise for everyone, but Cameron. She did our first cruise on the Wonder several years ago. Cami and Brandon make great pirates!

Jay, Leigh, Morgan (13) and Truman (8): 1st cruise for Jay and Leigh. Morgan is the one who got me hooked on Disney and Truman will be on his third cruise. Leigh is a professional photographer and she'll be following us all with her camera.

Jessica, my youngest, who has also cruised with us in the past. Jess is a true foodie and takes pictures of all our Disney meals.

So we are 11 cruisers, looking forward to turkey at sea!
