January 15, 2012 - WONDERful Mexican Mickeys

So I was perusing the meet threads and was totally surprised that there isn't one for the 1/15/12 MR cruise. Although I'm probably the least qualified to set up the thread as I've never been on a cruise much less a Disney cruise, I figured I'd get this started.

This is just going to be me and my DW. Our son who will be 15 months when we leave is staying home with grandma. We've also got another couple that may be joining us - they're coming over for dinner tonight so maybe we'll get that hook sunk in.

So any other DISers going on this cruise or am I the sole representation?

(Oh, and if anyone else wants to actually organize a meet, I'm more than happy to let that happen as I have no clue what I'm doing)

Heeeeey! We've just booked for this cruise and I'm SUPER excited!!!

I'm 20, cruising with my parents, sister and her boyfriend. This will be our second Disney cruise (the boyfriend's first.) Last time we did a 4 day in the bahamas and it just wasn't long enough!

I'm going to be graduating from Animation school in San Francisco the week after, and we're also going to squeeze in a couple of days at the parks so it's going to be a very exciting vacation indeed!

Nice to meet you Donathius, you're in for a great time! Hopefully there will be some more DISer's joining us soon!

I just thought I'd let people know (hopefully you subbed to the thread) - Disney just dropped the price on the Jan 15 MR cruise that we're all going on. I had my TA rebook our cat11b sideways room and we got $260 back!

Incidentally I never mentioned anything about our occasion for going on this cruise. Basically we're doing an early third anniversary celebration. I got a new job earlier this year that gave us the funds available to do this and my mom is able to babysit our DS so we can go enjoy some much needed solitude. We decided to do late seating so that there aren't as many small children at dinner. This is the first ever cruise for both of us and we're way excited. I'm going a little overboard and booked us a room on Harbor Blvd right across from the main Disneyland entrance for the night before. We're not going to go into the park, but we'd rather stay somewhere that we can get out and enjoy than some random hotel in LA or San Pedro.

Awesome!!! You're on this cruise, too! How cool. I *think* we're going. At least I have a deposit down. Need to make a final decision by November 1st. I thought it would be me and my son and two of my grandchildren but he isn't going. Still trying to convince DH but it may just be me and my grandaughter.

We'll get to meet before Hawaii!!!

that is so great that you will be there too... I need to pm you and give you my phone number, since we are not far apart.. Seems like great minds think alike..

If this is TMI, just skip..

when the kids were little and beyond, we went to WDW over MLK weekend because the "kids" were out of school and had just finished finals, so a long weekend was perfect.. so DH and I have an anniversary on Jan 14th, and i wanted to celebrate at Le Cellier in Canada with pretzel bread, filets and garlic pototoes...now the "kids" are grown, we can celebrate in other ways.. hence a cruise for our anniversary...

I am going to book a room near the port.I have to go back to the PC cruise info and see where I stayed ...it was very nice and had a shuttle to the port..

I am on the Hawaii cruise in Oct 2012 and will be doing DL and DCA then..so I'll stay on site using DVC points..

Glad to be apart of this fun group! I can't imagine a cruise without a FE....but I guess I am about to find out.

I need a few ideas...we probably are flying in Fri/Sat. If I need a place to stay...any suggestions?? I was to do this cruise this sept but had to cancel, and lost a hotel I got on priceline since I didn't go so I will try that one but would love suggestions. Also does DCL use transfers or you just have to find your own way there? Last time I looked the port only had enterprise car rental....any others that will shuttle us to port??? Thanks for any info!!
