From my calculations so far there are 12 men, 16 women, 2 boys ages 11-18, 8 boys under the age of 10, and three girls all 10 and under for the FE exchange. Just a summary if this helps anyone.

I did something similar to this too.

I'm okay with the Oct 1st cut off on the FEE.

Slow Thread

This is a slow thread. I wonder if it means we have a small amount of people sailing with us.
I heard from a travel agent that the Disney Cruises were slow booking out of Galveston Port. Disney signed a two year deal to sail out of Galveston and I hope they keep it as a port since it so close to home. I see a few of us on this thread are from Texas so if we keep sailing out of Galveston we can continue sailing with Disney. Sherry

We finally booked ours today. So excited! We're surprising our 4 & 6 year old and just telling them we're going to Galveston for vacation. Can't wait to see their expressions when we pull up to the boat. We plan to sign up for the FE but waiting for Disney to assign us our cabin.

Cruise booked

What a great surprise for your kids. I think we set the last sign up date for the FEE as Oct 1st. Go ahead and sign up and fill in your room later. This is our first Disney Cruise. Is it yours also? It is getting close. Sherry

Parking

Is anyone parking at the port in Galveston? We were thinking of having one of our kids drop us off since we are just 45 minutes away but am unsure of when to have them pick us up when we get back. How long does it take to get off the boat? Sherry

We are having my daughter drop us off and then pick us up. Since it is our first time, not sure about how long it takes. I have told her to be there around 10am to get us. Maybe someone who's cruised before will have more information for us newbies.

We are parking at the Port of Galveston and this is our first Disney Cruise so I'm not sure what to expect when it comes to the timing of getting off the boat.

Best to wait to see disembarkation on Saturday for an idea of how it will for this ship.

On RCCL generally everyone is off the ship by eleven but that is ,more pax.

Parking

I just checked parking and I see that there are at least two parking options when I googled it. I am still hoping that one of the kids can drop us off but it is soccer season for the grandkids. It's getting close if I am thinking of parking. Sherry

if they are only 45 minutes away and you dont need to urgently get home- I would suggest calling them that morning once they start disembarkation. Typically we are off our cruises by 8:30-9:30. We have stood around waiting for disembarkation to start twice out of 15 cruises and this was delayed til 10am- lots of flights missed and people waiting to pick up passengers.

I think 8:30 would be safe if you are in a hurry and want to get off quick

this will be something you could post in a week or so to see what the first few cruises stats are for time starting disembarkation out of galveston

Yay!!! We wanted connecting cabins also because both the kiddos are too small to sleep up high so one will stay with my mom and dad. Just in case there was middle of the night drama my mom didn't want to be walking around the decks in her night gown. Lol!
