As you can tell, I'm not a very experienced traveler. Especially outside of the US. How much cash should I bring? At home we rarely use cash. Can you use credit cards at ports or do they prefer cash?

Much at the local nearby stores will be priced in US dollars, especially in Mexico. So, bring small bills, 1's and 5's if you want some modest souvenirs. Cayman sticks to their own currency but almost always takes US dollars for payment as well. Oftentimes change will be in local currency, so having small bills will minimize your change to a few foreign coins typically.

Credit cards are good for major purchases. I would not risk the chance of fraud by giving my credit card to a small local store in Mexico.

Hi Mom of 2 just joining thread

Hi My name is Lynsey Dixon and I am 27 year old mom and I have 2 boys ages 4 and 2 almost 3. This is going to be our first cruise and so excited it's going to be a disney cruise! I was hoping to meet other moms on here and families that could give me some advice and maybe get to know before the cruise and possibly hang out with on the cruise. Would love to meet some life long friends and was hoping to participate in any fun cruise activities. Hoping to meet and chat with all of you before the cruise.

Hi I am a new member of this thread I wish I had found this earlier. I have been planning this cruise for months now lol. Is there anyway to still join this event or become part of the FE? I would like to participate if I knew what it all entailed. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you guys.

Does one bottle get you through the entire trip, or would you recommend a couple of bottles? One per person? It sounds like a great idea. I want to go get some.

I also wanted to throw this out there I am a concierge guest and my family of 4 has reserved a private cabana on castaway cay we have cabana 2. I am really excited to use it but it is pretty pricey for only 1 day. I was wondering if there were any other families out there that might want to go in half with us on it. You can have up to 6 guests for the normal price and 50 extra for each additional person. I know its a maximum of 10 guest but we were hoping to meet a nice family that is friendly that we could share the cabana with. Since my boys are 4 and 2 we really thought a nice comfortable place to relax and cool off would be beneficial. If any moms out there thinks this sounds like something they would be interested in please let me know. Thanks

I called yesteday and the newest movie they are playing is Iron Man 3. They will have the Muppet Movie and Wreck it Ralph and other movies but you can call now and find out. No Epic though

Lynsey we have a Facebook page also and that's where the weather is. As far as the FE, it is pretty late for that but we are having a meet and greet on embarkation day from 2 to 3 pm that you are welcome to come to to meet everyone.
