Faith rocks here is the old post. We closed at 16 cabins but I don't know how to lock the actual document plus cabin assignments can change so it kind of needs to still be editable

I'm going on this cruise too... and it's our first cruise!

We made a parking reservation at Galveston Park N Cruise because we were told it's right across the street from the terminal (no need for a shuttle). Is there a better place for parking?

Hooray

Hooray more fellow cruisers. Welcome! It is our first Disney Cruise too. We are meeting on Deck 3 at the Promenade Lounge at 3:00 pm. It will be a short meet and greet so we can recognize each other on the cruise. Tell us about yourselves.
I have not booked our parking yet but am going to book tomorrow. The reviews on the parking places all looked pretty good to me. We are driving our old pickup so we are not too worried about indoor or outdoor spots. Sherry

Do we need to reserve parking or can we just get a spot when we get there?

Booking ahead will get savings but not required.

Galveston

I am headed to Galveston today as my husband and daughter are riding a charity bike ride around Galveston Bay called Bike Around the Bay. (172 miles in two days). I am hoping to catch my first glimpse of the Magic at the port. We are staying there so I might catch the sail away. We are only a week away. Wow. Sherry

First Cruise

Hello All We just ran across this thread and thought it was awesome as we have never done this before and think it will be very interesting. This is going to be our first cruise and we are all so excited! It will be my daughters (Christina) birthday on the 26th as she will be turning 11 while on the cruise. The tips have been great and look for more to come and hope we can help as well. We are looking so forward to this trip and have been doing so much research, I can't believe we just now ran across this thread thingy. Thanks so much!!!

Welcome

Hello Batesfam. This is our first Disney cruise and we are so excited. This board has been great for answering questions. I am sure we will all learn a lot on our first cruise. Are you signed for early or late dining? And don't forget to meet us at 3pm on Deck 3. Promenade Lounge on our sail away day. I think I might stick a name tag in my lanyard for that meet and greet. Sherry

I hope you get to see her Sherry. She is pretty cool cruising through the bay. And very big! My first time seeing her was her first sail date out of Galveston and then saw her again last weekend.

My mom and I went out to Galveston today. A little warm but a nice day down there for the bike ride.

Would be a fun ride to try. After a few trips to Austin in the MS150 a different route would be fun. Where is the overnight stop?

Bike Around the Bay

The ride starts off I 10 at Barbers Hill. They ride 95 miles today to the Moody Gardens Hotel. Then tomorrow from the hotel back to Barbers Hill for 82 miles tomorrow. Most of the ride looks flat but there is a bit of south wind today. I will sit by the pool here at the hotel (martini in hand) and wait for them. Have to run to the port and look at the Magic. Sherry

My friends just got off the boat this morning. Im waiting to hear a report. So far all I have gotten so far is nobody wanted it to end. As forth at race, that's sounds fun. I may have to try that next year.

Magic

I drove down to the port and saw the Magic today. So very cool! A parking attendant let me pull and take a quick picture. I can not wait for next Saturday. Sherry
