Good thing there aren't MORE ships on order

Does the NYE cruise count for this year? If so, then we are 3 in 2011, right?

FE questions

Ok...so one can only do a poll as a new thread, since I think we should keep this 'in the family' as it were...here are my questions!

1. How many days before embarkation should the FE list be closed?
a. 30days
b. 60days
c. 90days

2. Should the FE be broken into small groups?
If you answered yes to #2 then how many cabins/people should each group contain?

3. If you answered NO to #2, what would your thoughts be on two larger groups, if the number of people gets to be very large? (this comes from the Dream Maiden and the Hawaii cruise in 2012 - both FE lists were/are well over 100 cabins)

FE -
1. 60 days
2&3. Break into groups only if a lot of people sign up.

Had to do this for PCC 2. Broke into smaller groups. Everyone in group gave same gift. Group organizer kept list of everyone doing FE, and assigned which rooms each person got. We got a whole bunch of stuff.

1. either a or b is good
2. I would prefer to not split, but if the list got big, I'd have to say that would be best, as it might keep some from participating due to finances
3. if we have that many, that would be fine.

Thanks again Cayla for organizing this.

Smile Disney Magic to Canada - June 10

We'll be cruising with you all too. (Diane & Gary)

Does anyone know when additional info on New York might come out? Like hotels prior/after.... NYC based excursions... etc. We want to extend our time on one end or the other. We've never been to NYC! (only landed in JFK for a flight change - does that count?)

We think anywhere between 30 to 60 day cutoff would work fine. One group is fine with us since there aren't that many as of now. Don't think we will get as big as the MV or Hawaii groups.

Welcome aboard Diane (and Gary)! I haven't heard anything yet, but I'll tell you, one of our cruisers is a Disney Vacation planner, so I'm sure she'll let us know as soon as anything is available. (Lisa ~ goldeelox9)

I added you to the f/b page.

I'd say 60 days and one group as well- I can't imagine it's going to be as gonzo as the Hawaii one. Granted, I'm voting knowing full well we may not be able to participate- we have allergy issues, and I feel dreadful going 'sure we'd love to participate in the FE! But you can't give us any of the following...good luck!'

Cynthia, don't worry. We can make those things known. On our previous cruise (we didn't have more than 8 kids I believe) so I did little canvas bags for each of them with 'stuff, glow sticks, stickers, note pads, pencils, those squishy balls, etc) and no food in them. It's very do-able. And honestly, I don't think we got much in the way of food/candy in our FE on that trip (maybe a few candies were thrown into a goodie bag).

FE's - 60 days out
Keep one group unless we get larger.


No worries about allergies. Just let them be known and I think we can all work around them. I'm so used to allergies with my son's class that I double check all labels when dealing with things for snacks for his class.
