I'd love to hear about the excursions you chose! Adults only in our cabin, too!

So thrilled our countdown has entered the double digits!!!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
I think splitting is the only logical thing to do. Especially since we still have about 3 months to go and I am sure there will be some other people signing up as well. You cannot manage all those staterooms on one list.
And I think splitting by floors will save us all a great deal of "walking".

This will be the first time at these ports so we chose to stick with Disney excursions. So, for St. Maarten we chose the "Under two flags" tour, which is a 3 hour bus tour, showing both sides of the island. The tour will be over at 11.30, so that should leave us ample time to explore on our own a bit too.

For St. Thomas we booked the Best of St. Thomas Tour and Shopping, which is pretty similar to the St. Maarten tour. It ends at 11.15 and will give us time again to take the Skyride to Paradise Point. We decided to do that on our own. I read that it is close to the port and one can easily walk there.

For the sea days we have Palo brunch and Remy Champagne lunch. We have done both numerous times and even though we have been to Remy dinner 4 times we enjoyed the lunch a lot and we will not leave too full again.
On Pirate night we will have dinner at Palo. Pirate night menu is my least favourite menu, so Palo is the perfect choice on that night.

No excursions on CC. We rented a Cabana at Serenity Bay and will just hang out there.

What are your plans so far?

Would a good FE split be Decks 7&8 and everybody else?

Hi! My family is very excited to be sailing on the Fantasy in August!

It's me, Michelle, my partner, Sheila, and our two kids DD Jordan (13) and DS Cameron (11). We are from Colorado but currently living in the U.K.

This will be our fifth cruise but our first one on either of the new ships. This cruise will actually be our second one for the summer. We will be sailing on the 12-night Eastern Med cruise this July. We've also booked the 9-night Greek Isle cruise for next June.

Before we took our first cruise we were sure that this would be a one time thing, but like everything else at Disney, the service was so outstanding that this will be cruise no 10 in 5
seasons!

Looking forward to get to know many of our fellow cruisers!

I think that sounds like a wonderful idea. I like the idea of floors 7 & 8, and I think that I might want to also include the latecomers to the groups as well.

Thank you very much! It is going to be SOOO much fun!

Hi Everyone!

Karin- I've heard really good things about the Under two Flags tour! I think my Dad is spearheading our excursions now, so I guess I don't have to worry about it anymore!! I would LOVE to post a picture of Colby, but I don't know how... LOL. I'm pretty technology savvy, except for that! Colby is doing really well, he only wakes up once at night (for now!) and is really mellow during the day. He has just started smiling socially this past week so it's been fun to try to make him smile and laugh!

The split by decks and head count is a great idea! I love that our sailing is so popular!

Welp, back to laundry and more prep for our Disney trip! 8 days until Colby's first trip and our first Star Wars Weekend!!

I would like to wait until the end of the cut off time to make a definite decision. But this IS what I am thinking of, pulling together staterooms on floors close together.

I added you to the list of cruisers and FE participants. Please let me know your and your son's first names, so that gifts can be personalized.

How fun to have you on board as well. I added you to the list of cruisers in my first post!
I hope you fill us in on your Med cruise in July, as we are doing a 12 night Med cruise in 2014 as well.
I am sure you will love the new ships as well. We fell in love with the Wonder, then changed to the Dream and they all have their own charms.

I am glad you like the idea. Not sure how to divide the decks yet, but we should all know by the time of our cut off date. (depends on how many people still sign on and what decks they are going to be at).

PLEASE, remind me again if you still want to be in a latecomer list once it is time for it. I have a few things going on (trip to Germany at the end of this week, 5 day trip to Italy in two weeks, more work projects) just in case I forget.

Thanks for the head's up on the Under Two Flags tour! We are pretty excited about our choices.
What a shame about not being able to post a photo of Colby. I guess we will need to get to meet him in person then. But please keep us updated on his progress. And his first trip to WDW!

I am glad you like the idea of splitting the group by "heads" and decks.
