Just booked this cruise this morning for myself, and I'm trying to encourage some of my family to book too. They just aren't the advance planners that I am.

This will be my 2nd Dream double dip cruise and 3rd Disney cruise. Can't wait for 2 more days at CC!

Welcome to all those who have recently posted! The thread is a little bit slow right now. I am guessing it'll pick up a little closer to our vacation time!!!

Anyone going on any trips before this NY cruise? We will be spending 9 days at WDW this December, and the MV cruise of the Fantasy in March. Those trips are taking up much of our attention these days! The WDW trip, we're taking both "kids" (14 and 18). March is just DH and I for our 20th anniversary cruise. Then, for the NY cruise, it's the whole family again.

Anyone else???

I'll be at WDW for spring break, staying at BCV and going back in July to stay at BWV. I'm hoping to book a few days at VB prior to the BWV stay, and I haven't made any reservations yet for June, but I'm going to try to get into GCV at DL when I can book with my DVC points at 7 months out.

Ohana 4, I'm jealous that you're cruising the Fantasy before this one, and the MV too! That should be fun!

Mathgeek, we are super excited about the MV trip. I have heard so many negative comments about the crowds, "newness pains" etc. But I plan to just enjoy it all and have patience. I'm not a souvenir hog, so I don't think all the store items will be a problem for us. I plan to just relax and enjoy being there. This will be our second cruise. We cruised Alaska this summer on the Wonder. It was fabulous but we know it'll be totally different in the Caribbean.

My husband and I booked this cruise while onboard the dream in June. We will be going along with our two boys who will be 7 and 4. The 7 year old will have his birthday on board!! We also plan on surprising them next Christmas morning. I just wish it wasn't so far away!

Did anyone else get their info packet from DCL recently? I got mine the other day and was excited until I realized that we still have over a year until this cruise!

360 days!!!!

Hi Everyone! My family is all booked for this special but expensive cruise .... and they don't even know! I am going to surprise my three kids and hubby too! I can't wait until we can start reading about the NYE cruise from 2011. I have lots to learn... Anyone know exactly what they do special for the kids for NYE? I personally can't think of a better way to ring in the new year!

We've booked it!! Can't wait, it's been too long since our last DCL cruise over a year...this will be our 2nd NYE cruise, one question...it says that New Years Eve is Pirate Night...does anyone know anything different? I rather enjoyed our formal night being New Years Eve, not sure about being a pirate that night. Please keep us posted on FE's and/or if there will be Secret Mickey's for adults? Should be a great cruise. Also, has anyone rented a cabana on Castaway? and if so what # and did you like your view?

We just got back from our Xmas cruise aboard the Magic. We booked this cruise for NYE while on board. This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise, second NYE cruise and first aboard the Dream. Two days at CC - is there any better reason to do this cruise?
