I've found the Passporter guides to be extremely comprehensive, and they always seem to be updating with new info on their website.

Looking forward to it, and also the ship and CC decorated for Christmas!

By the way, ssanders79 (DH) would happily keep the FE list if interested. He usually keeps it on a website & it's neat and organized
That's a wonderful offer...thanks so much.

It appears I am the first Texan to check in. My wife and I just moved our previously booked cruise to join the Podcast crew. We just got off a Mexican Riviera cruise, booked the 11/24 Fantasy, got home and discovered this opportunity. Two weeks later was an easy move!


Sara is presently a kindergarten teacher, but is leaving the profession after 10 years this summer to begin sales of marching and concert percussion equipment. I am a Business Analyst for an IT company and we've both developed a love for Disney over the years.

This will be my 8th DCL cruise and this will be her 3rd. I am the one that introdcued her to the podcast and once I told her what was up, she seemed pretty excited to join this crew.

LOL Jennifer, you could never tell from where we are spending our spare time that we love Disney.

Hi I'm Scott, silverfox97's DH, just send me a PM with your stateroom info and I will add to the FE List.

I started a Meet Thread on the DCL board so those that are not book through Dreams Unlimited can get together.

They need to switch over to Dreams so they can be included in any special events!

Just got off The Dream yesterday, and can't wait until podcast cruise 4.0 (I booked while on board).

I'm definitely looking forward to the longer trip. 3 nights just wasn't enough, especially the issues we had with embarking. It was our first ever cruise and I'm hooked.

3-days is not long enough. The 7-day is MUCH less hectic.

I am really looking forward to a seven night cruise. Six full days. I want to get on "early" so I can make the most of the first day.

I really need to change my trip ticker, don't I? The ship is so far past the island now!

Your three night cruise only gave you two full days. Not at all enough time!

So, I have a question - we moved our dummy booking Friday to the podcast crusie, and did it thru Tracey H. at DU as John said to on another thread. Are we automatically put on the list of 400? do you get some kind of confirmation that you are included in the group?

I guess I want to be sure that we aren't just booked on the cruise, but are on the Podcast list!!
