I'm trying to talk my sister and her family into joining us as it would make my mom's day even more special.

We will definately be doing a few days in Anaheim prior to the cruise. Can't go all that way and not do DL!

If anyone has any Vancouver questions I will do my best to answer

Oh, and I have a fish extender from the last cruise. Is anyone up for a doing the FE thing?

Not sure how I'm going to last the year of waiting...
Welcome! We're looking forward to a year of planning The only cruise we went on, the Panama Canal Repo in 2008, we booked in May and left in August. I didn't understand how the group had so much planned but I think I do now

I couldn't believe all the planning they did. The nice thing is that I think there will be some good trip reports coming out of that group. I am eagerly waiting to read them.

Hello Again--Sending Box to Our Cabin?

Hi Everyone,
Just checking back on this thread after being absent for a couple of weeks. Things were sure busy the last few weeks with my DD's birthday and Easter family gatherings. Now, it's back to planing planing and planing

Just a quick question for seasoned cruisers: I've read somewhere that you can send yourself a box to your cabin, but is that only for the east coast cruises only? Can we send a box to ourselves for this cruise? I'm thinking about sending baby things.......diapers, wipes, baby food, swim diapers, even small water toys for the splash zone. Any idea? What if our cabin gets changed although I do have a cabin right now?

This will be my first Disney cruise. It'll be the first cruise for our family of 4. I'm pregnant now with our second one, so he or she will be close to 11 months by this cruise comes around next year.

Talk to everyone soon!

The Wonder is in Victoria and will arrive in Vancouver tomorrow marking the end of the repo from this year. Hopefully we will start seeing some trip reports soon so we know some of what we might expect!

You can send a package to LA. Call DCL and ask how to do it. We did the WB Panama Repo in 08 and had to send medical supplies for my DD and once they figured out where I was supposed to have it sent it was no problem.

Welcome! I am DVC as well (although am not using points for the cruise - mainly because I don't have nearly enough).

I don't know if you have to get off but I do know that they have a special line for you to reboard. There were a lot of people who did that b2b this year so check out their trip reports and see what they say.

We are DVC as well and may need to use points for the trip since we are going to have to cancel our first trip home to the Boardwalk for Christmas/New Years! It's a good thing since we will be increasing our party size in oh around January
