We're joining you!

I sent a request to join the FB group. We are:

Me (Suz-celebrating my 50th BD on June 13th)
DH (Jeff)
DD #1 (Katie will be 16 at cruise time)
DD #2 (Bobbie-celebrating her 6th BD on June 10th)

This will be our 8th Disney cruise and we will be doing a back to back with this cruise and the June 2nd 8 night. Have always wanted to do that! Looking forward to meeting all of you.

Just booked today!!!

Just booked today!

Me (26 at time of cruise) and DM(om) will be joining you all on this cruise. Doing B2B with the 2Night. We may be joined by my friend Katelyn who is actually a WDW Cast Member (this is still up in the air)

I sent a request to join the facebook group.

Also, since I've read through the thread I noticed many of you extending your time in NYC for this trip. I live 2 hours from the city and spend a decent amount of time there. Feel free to ask questions, I'd be happy to help as much as possible.

In regard to the FE questions...
1. 60 days
2. No.. one large group is fine.
3. Only if it gets to large and it is feared that some will not participate.

SO EXCITED TO BE JOINING YOU ALL!!!

Help Me Decide

Hi All I need your help.
DH has been deployed since last October and doesn't come home until early May 2012. Lookign to do a Disney cruise. My birthday is 10 June so of course this cruise is right up there on our list. But there is also that 5 day double dip cruise leaving on the same day.

Kids (DS 13 at cruise time and DD 10) are leanign towards the Double Dip only because they want to do the aqua duck and be on the "new" ship. We loce Castaway Cay.

But we love exploring new places and none of us have been to Eastern canada. Plus DH and I have wanted to show the kids NYC for a while.

Also I don't like being hot, but am worried we won't get any beachy pool time on the NYC cruise.

Thoughts, comments, things to ponder?

Thanks for the help

The Aquaduck is really neat...but most of the water parks have a some slide that is close....I would say do the NYC cruises...the new ships are not going anywhere and there are always double dips. Fla and CC are HOT during June.

NYC is hot also, but not 100!!! I live near NYC, and I find that the whole area empties out in June because a lot of folks go away...leaving the city easier to explore.

just my 2 cents...

my apologies....been busy :(

Whew....I am very sorry I have been absent from the boards for the last 8 weeks or so....my classes for the summer are finally over ()
If I ever say I am doing summer classes again - please toss me overboard!! 3 papers due every weekend...2 with 48 hours notice of the topic/content. UGH

ok that having been said....I have been receiving PM's for new additions to the lists. I have updated them and will be uploading them before the night is over. I plan on making another post with the links.

I would like to say WELCOME to everyone who is joining us!!!

in regards to passports - please be careful, the rules are changing rapidly. You may not need a passport to leave the country but most likely will need some type of proof of residency to return!! For land/rail/sea border crossings the passport card will suffice. And yes, leaving and returning to the same port is easier, but still may require ID more than a drivers' license. I am pretty sure that by 2012 one will need a passport to fly domestically.

I have some feelers out about the dining rotation and fireworks, but no good answers yet. I may have more infomation after I am on the Dream in November.

Once September starts, I will once again be busy until Dec 20...then full steam ahead with cruise planning!!!! Keep those PM's coming - the more the merrier!!

Cayla

FE list link

Here is the most current FE list:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...hl=en_US#gid=0

I have added two columns - that show how many days out we are "locking" the FE list, and the number of cabins or groups people are "voting" for.

Please read TravelinCyn's restriction list - she would like to participate so we should all try to ensure they can enjoy the fun!!! PM her directly if you have further questions about specific FE gift ideas (sorry Cyn - just figured this would be the best way to ensure Sean's safety) Just as an awareness thing...Latex allergies also mean - no strawberries, no kiwi, and no coconut.

For those who are lurking or haven't decided if they are going to join in the fun...this is a great way to meet folks and to enjoy little gifts from other cruisers.

If you would like to join in...PM me the following information:

Dis Name
real world name
cabin #
who is sailing with you
children's ages (if applicable)
and any special requirements such as allergies or restrictions



also vote on:
how many days before we sail are we "locking" the list to finalize the count
30 or 60?

should we keep it as ONE single group or split it?
if split - how many cabins in each group

I have been collecting email addresses - but since I put it on Google docs...I really do not need one- unless you want me to email you the excel file (I use Excel 2007 so it is a *.docx if you need it as *.doc then please let me know)

Cayla

Padalyn, you are on top of things despite your summer craziness!
Fortunately, I don't food cross react- I'm prolonged contact, not ingestion reaction, to latex (it made science grad school soooo much fun. Expensive lab gloves for me!)

I would be a sad, sad girl with no strawberries or coconut.

agent to call back to boo

Well we took this opinion and decided to book this cruise with all of ya'll! Just waiting for the travel agent to call back and book! I didn't like the reviews on the Cat 10 cabin she assigned us.

Planning for this will give us a nice reprieve from waitjng for DH to come home. He has been gone ten months and we have 8 more to go. Yuck.
I sent a request for the FB group and PM'd our FE info.

Psyched! Especially since June 10th is my 45th birthday!
