I sent a LONG list of questions to Shanda on Monday about our Bahamian license, photo printing on board, a little problem with room noise (there's a board on here where you can find out what others have said about your room! and it turns out my mom and a groomsman have rooms right over the club that stay noisy really late) and most importantly-about cake and goodies! I had noticed a while back that the Disney website has listed things differently than the paperwork I originally got from Shanda. The website no longer lists the complimentary 8x10 photo, the cake service set as a gift, and the cake flavors have COMPLETELY changed! Now I'm trying to find out if we fall under the old stuff, or the the new stuff?!?

Unfortunately, DF is not here to share my frustration so I'll vent here-Shanda will be out of the office until 10/27!! I waited *forever* to ask her all these questions, and she's on vacation... boo. I'll live though. I have wedding favors to make! And to try to post pictures of online! We're getting M&M's (my to-be initials!) made with our picture, 4-2012/Bahamas, thank you, and "dreams do come true" on them also as favors for our guests but I have to wait til March to order those

The only thing I can tell you is the cake flavors have changed and what is current is what is on the website. We got an email that they had changed and to disregard what was in our planning guide.

As for the cake serving set and picture, we don't know anything. A bride that was married last month still got the service set so they may just be doing it until they run out.

By the way, I posted about my shower on the wrong thread...I deleted it up above... I am not sure how I managed to do that!!!

It's ok Lisa! I figured you had accidentally posted here too! Thanks for the updates on the cake flavors. I asked Shanda, but all I got back from her was a "I'm looking into it" reply with "I'll be out of the office..." at the bottom.

You're getting so close! I can't wait til I'm as close as you! My stomach will be in knots for probably the entire last month...

Pictures? Maybe...

First off, I want to thank you all for being so patient with me!

Welcome, pixiedust, freckledginger, goofy4ever, and mrsduck! Thank you for following along even though there's not much to see here!

You asked for pictures and since I'm excited to share them (even of DF isn't) if I can get them uploaded, you're getting them! I worked all day to get the bottles done and I must say, they look just as cool as the maps!

The map!



It will have to be tweaked a little and there's a surprise on the back for our guests!

The bottles!



Each side is a different part of the wedding. "Castaway Cay" "Bahamas" April 2012" (where the 0 is Mickey's silhouette) and our initials. They're a little hard to make out without something inside of them though...

So that's it for now. 5 months left and I'm just about done with favors! Now I have to work on DF's wedding ears and mine! We're customizing ours!

Ok, I'm at a loss on the pictures... Apparently I just can't do it! I even started a photobucket account in hopes that would solve the problem... I'll keep trying though!

Thanks for the welcome

I'm not sure why your photos aren't working... Sounds like you're doing the right things. If you have a photobucket account, that should work. Once you upload your photos there, you add them into your disboard posts by coping the IMG code found under the photo on the photobucket album page. Then you click on the icon that looks like a mountain with a sunset in your disboard post. Then copy your IMG code into it. Preview your post to make sure the photo looks how you want. You can edit the size and such within photobucket, and then use the IMG code for that photo. Good luck, and looking forward to seeing your photos!

When I talked to Shanda last week she did tell me that someone would be just checking her in box. That way if a bride who has a wedding next week has an issue it won't just be sitting in her email box. I had some dining seating issues that she contacted me about and she told me to get them fixed by 5:30 that evening or I could still send them to her inbox that it would be checked and forwarded on to DCL. I am getting close! I still have lots of little things to do, nothing big. I am glad I got things done ahead of time.

These are the directions I followed that Dolly had posted. Hope it helps!


• Get a free photobucket account at www.photobucket.com.
• Then upload your pictures to there.
• Once they are uploaded point your mouse at the picture and you will see a drop down list below the picture.
• Then left click your mouse on the words "IMG Code". When you do this you will see the word "copy" show up where the code was.
• Now go back to your post on the DISBoards and right click and "paste" the code into your post and the picture will show up once you complete the post.

Ok let's try this again! I realized when I read your instructions freckledginger what I've been doing wrong (I think).

Got a reply from Shanda last night on all my questions! And got the new Elements & Enhancements and Planning Guide! I can't wait, so many decisions to make. New cake flavors to decide from, song order, and how to get the favors onboard!!

Since I couldn't get the pics to work in the first posts, here's a pic of me and DF:

Once I get some with faces copies into photobucket I'll post them!
