YES, we do!!! Thanksgiving on the Magic, 7 night, and the SAME 4 night over President's day. We actually were going to book the same cat room, but can you believe it, the cat ABOVE the interior cabin, was actually LESS??!! I think after this summer, DH may be compelled to go again next summer, NOT sure, but I am curious to see.... I can say you would totally love it as a family. And with older kids, you would really have a chance to enjoy all aspects!

Score on the $50 credit just for seeing somebody else's suitcases.
I KNOW it was practically that! I was really happy to get that credit, WHAT a surprise! It wasn't a big deal, and we didn't complain AT ALL, so that was a nice pixie dust moment on our first day!

Maybe not too bad, but with the lighting they kinda look greenish...

You know how I tend to send my camera skyward after a few muddled anything... But seriously that chandelier is AMAZING and the drink was divine.

Hard to say what could have been better at that moment, I love Wishes

The Sail Away party looks like a blast! I don't think anyone from our group will be taking in a movie at that point, but isn't it nice that it's an option?

Looking forward to Palo! We get to try for our ressies on Saturday!

Well, on a few days it was crowded. I will share some photos later on in the TR to show you that! It was fine around 9 when were were out there.. the other pools probably are crowded earlier... But, we did stake our claim on two chairs because if we hadn't there wouldn't have been any...

Oh he won't be next cruise, so really I just let him do what he wanted... the crowds around the pool deck were not to his liking, because he wasn't going to stand and stake out a spot (a la parades at WDW)... Next cruise we'll likely be right there front and center But yes, the activities and things to do at all times of day and night are great!

Hope you can get them in advance, but if not, it seems they are available on the boat.

So it looks like if we don't get the Palo reservations on Saturday, we should just go straight there when get aboard?

Oh you are definitely tempting me on trying a cruise. I can't get over how empty the pool area was... at least initially. Was it ever difficult to find chairs at the pool? I am loving this whole "drink of the day" concept. Can't wait to hear about Palo!

WOW.WOW.WOW. Your post has me both, so excited and VERY stressed! The ship looks beautiful! So, I am going to pick your brain a bit......we have never been on a Disney cruise before, do you suggest we get to the port early for our June cruise? I would like to try to book a Palo dinner ressie, can I do that before embarkation day? Can you sign the kids up for the clubs online? Even if I sign them up online, do I still have to register them at the port? I want to book a spa package as well, can I do this online too? Where do you suggest my family and I watch the sailaway party from? Does DCL send you info about all the documentation and forms you need for the cruise? Sorry for the crazy questions!!! Your day sounds INCREDIBLE so far and I love the inside stateroom, that is where we are booked! Thanks!

Hi Happy Dog!

It has been a while (ever since my July trip) since I have posted on the boards! I just wasn't into it that much with no Disney trip planned---I know, I am a bad diser!

I can't wait to read all about your Dream cruise! We had originally planned to go on that cruise but decided to head elsewhere on vacation. We are now planning a 5 day cruise in April 2012 over spring break so I am anxious to hear about this one and the one this summer.

The sail away party looks like so much fun! I am anxious to hear your thoughts about the portal. It looks neat.

Can't wait for more!

Erika
