We are booked on this as well, me, DH, DD10 and DD4 at sailing time. Also will be with Sister, BIL and her son, who will be 18 then. Thinking of asking my brother, his wife and oldest DD, who will be, gasp, 22.

Well, Our family has booked 3 cabins for this cruise and or we excited? Of course we are. Disney just does it right.
Our 2 daughters and their families do the fish extenders. If you have not done that before, it really is an exciting tradition! The kids look forward to finding what is new each time they return to their cabins.
New years at Castaway Key! Can't wait to see what Disney has in store for this event. Do you think formal bathing suits are required?
Look forward to the post over the next months.

Bump!! The Secret Mickey is between those Crazy Disney Adults who would like to swap anonymous gifts...in the past there has been $25 to $30 limit, but we are all kids at heart. The kids enjoy the FE's so much, and I love seeing their faces each time we return to the room. Has anyone volunteered to take on the coordination of FE's yet?
Also, confirmed with CM, that yes there is Pirate Night (Nassau evening) and Formal Night (New Years Eve). Our stops are Castaway, Nassau, Castaway and Sea Day. There are conflicting itineraries. Can't wait, is anyone going to try and reserve a Cabana?

I have been reading some of the Dream reviews and there seems to be an overwhelming number of people who do not like it as well as the Wonder or Magic. We have cruised 4 times and they have all been on the Magic. I'm afraid that I am going to be disappointed. It seems that everyone feels as if you spend the first 3 days just finding your way around, and on a 5 day cruise that just leaves 2, wish it was 7. Any thoughts??

Oh NO! Where have you been reading these reviews? I have been searching and haven't been able to find them.

The Xmas cruise was great! I thiink the season elevated everyone's sense of well being and friendliness. Formal night was Xmas Eve, Santa was in the main lobby, characters all over the ship. We only wish the temps were a bit warmer - only low to mid 70s the whole week.

The 2010 NYE was a blast - very high energy. There is a big NYE party on deck with live music, characters, fireworks, buffet, etc. We were told they normally do the fireworks for the Pirate deck party (the night before), but on the NYE cruise they save them for NYE. Our favorite feature of the NYE cruise is 2 days at Castaway Cay.

I understand the 2012 NYE cruise will be the last one that stops at CC twice. That itinerary has been dropped from the 2013 schedule.

Thank you for update CanyonRider! The cruise sounded Amazing!!!! Only wish my family wouldn’t throw a temper tantrum with us leaving for the holidays..
Looking forward to NYE on the Dream in 2012/2013!
Has anyone started a FE list?
I need to start thinking up ideas now!

I will volunteer for the FE list organization. I posted second on this thread so I can always edit that and add info to it. I also have a website we're not using much that we can load FE info on. Give me a week or so and I can start it up. Luckily, we have a year to plan!

TY Let me know if you need any help. Since it will be such a special cruise it will require an extra special FE gift

Maybe we can be co-organizers! I'd love to make this trip extra special too.

Has anyone done the PC cruise before? Booked the May 2013 this morning, but just couldn't make myself book a verandah it was $3,000. more....and seeing that the final payment is due three days after we get off the Dream from this cruise. I'm keeping the inside stateroom. If you have did you have a verandah?
