My youngest DD & I will be on this cruise as well. Haven't started packing just yet, so many other things to get in order first. Working on our stateroom door magnets, making my packing list as I do for every trip as without it I will end up forgetting something.

Flying in from WI

We are flying in from WI and are crossing our fingers that the airline doesn't lose our bags like last time! Disney was a huge help- our bags were flown into the first port by airline because they messed up so we didn't have bags for 3 days. What a mess! BUT... We were well taken care of because that's what Disney does best.We have been busy working on our fish extender gifts. The kids are so excited although nervous because there are many if any kids signed up their age. 17 son, 10 dd, and 9 son. I told them not everyone signs up for our group and there will be others.
We are looking forward to the warm weather as our highs for the days are starting to be only in the 50s....
Can't wait, and I would say we would meet but are not sure with our flight if we would be there, however, if we are some of us will drop in!
Can anyone tell me how long it would take to get the American girl store from the airport? My DD loves American girl and I am sure will be bringing one, but wants to see if we can go to the store in TX. The closest store to us is in Chicago and we have been there probably a dozen times but my DD wants to see if this store is different.

Which Houston Airport

Which airport are you flying into. We have two. Houston Hobby and Bush International. Bush is way northeast and Bush is southeast. Memorial City Mall is on I 10 West at Gessner. I am guessing but it would 45 minutes to an hour from Bush and 30 to 45 minutes from Hobby. Both times are depending on traffic. Houston traffic is crazy sometimes. Sherry

We are flying into Bush Intercontinental. So I am thinking going to AG might be out of the plans.

Anybody else flying in?

Is anyone on this forum flying in? I see a lot of us are from Texas. Just wondered if anyone had to fly in. Sherry
I purchased and put aside to pack some mini bar supplies...so nice Disney lets us carry it on for in cabin consumption.

Missed watching sal away. If folks not aware Galveston Web cam cruise cam will show sail away for friends who want to watch.

We were looking to go after the cruise so I guess it depends on how fast we get off the ship. Our flight to return home doesn't leave until 3:45. So if we are one of the first ones off the ship maybe...
Thanks for the info Rancher Dave!

After the cruise

After the cruise sounds like you will have time to visit the AG store. We are on a back to back cruise so I think they are going to want us off the ship quickly. I remember when my youngest had American Girl Dolls. They grow up way too fast. Sherry

We were pleasantly surprised by this policy and plan to utilize it ourselves.

Halloween night and pirate night

Does anybody know for sure....will we have a pirate night and a Halloween night? Just trying to pack accordingly...and not too much! I have called Disney but they weren't for sure since we are actually the week before Halloween.

OK so 3pm Deck 3 Promenade Lounge before muster drill for a brief meet and greet sounds good for us.

Everyone make sure to print your FE list and we can update any possible cabin changes at the 3pm brief meet and greet.

You should have time. Make sure to be off first then an hour to store.

I'm pretty sure they will find friends, most people will not ever look at these boards and a lot that do don't sign up for the FE exchange so.......I'm thinking this will NOT be a kid free cruise by any means and there will be some peers for them to cruise with.
