View Poll Results: How should we split the FE?
Split the FE list in half (2 groups 22 - 26 staterooms) 15 50.00%
Stick to the idea of a headcount (3 groups (14/15 staterroms) 15 50.00%

GOOD LUCK! You are ALMOST THERE!!!

I would love to meet on the ship. Have you decided on anything on FB yet? PLEASE, don't forget us over here.
On all 10 cruises we have had a meet before the muster drill. Wouldn't it be rather hard on sea days with people sleeping in, going to Palo or Remy? But I'll go with whatever you "lot" want.

Since you asked for suggestions .... I would say, embarkation day. Between 3 and 4, more like 3.15, as I am sure some of us will be at the DVC presentation which usually starts a 2? or 2.30?
So far we have always met in the Vista Cafe right above the Atrium. Don't know if it would work with over 100 people, but I am sure not everyone will attend a meet.
Just my 2 cents.

Did you see how the poll ended? It's split right in the middle. But I tend to lean towards the 2 groups. We have a few who are not responding and IF we won't get any info on them, if we have three groups they might shrink too much. If we split in half we would have 22/23 staterooms, not counting the "non responsive" ones.
I will need to make a decision come Sunday. So this will be something to think about.


As far as the meet and greet, on the facebook page we are making sure everyone knows where to sign up (DISboards and your group) for the FE. And we are trying to make sure everyone comes over to do the poll and throw in their two cents on anything you have asked.

I think meeting on the first day at 3:15 is a good idea as that is the day you have more of a chance to not interrupt everything else during the sea days.

I am torn about the group splits! But I will be prepared for whatever is decided!



Happy belated birthday to your sister and happy birthday to you!
Let your grandma know that by the beginning of next week she will have her list!

One thing I cannot leave home without, scissors and a screwdriver. Both have come in handy LOADS of times.


I will have to put down scissors and a screwdriver for myself as well. Just to be on the safe side.


Best thing to bump into some familiar faces again and again. Just don't forget to keep us in the loop here.
Guess, being that we are foreigners we won't be any good at trivia games.


You don't have to be foreigners to not be good at Trivia. Depending on what it is, I am not that great. But Harry Potter... Danielle, my 21 year old daughter, is an EXCELLENT person to ask those questions to.

Ah, the Hidden Mickey book! Make sure you have a recent copy as there are things added with every new edition. We ARE talking about the yellow book, aren't we?

Oh, and a camera is a vacation essential for us - we definitely travel with more than one.
Yes, I have Hidden Mickey Yellow book for the cruise. I THINK it is the most recent one, but I will make sure of it.

Let me know what you all want.





I can't believe no one has brought up the idea of a meet here earlier.
Wouldn't a first day meet the perfect way to introduce the kids to each other and to get to know one another?
Only 6 more weeks!!!!!!!


I agree!!!

Got your PM! I will update tonight. I am so glad to have you join the FE group as well.

I have no clue what a yum yum drink of the day is, but I want one!

Tell me about it ...... the end of the school year is a pain and I just learned that I am going to be a head teacher next year.
Even more stuff to prepare for next fall.


CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is awesome for you!




Okay, I'll gladly come and watch you win. But believe me, I am NO good at anything like it ...... says the teacher, who after a year still can't remember the last names of her pupils.

You should sign up as soon as possible. Go to the DCL site and look under port adventures. These things sell out pretty fast and in most cases, once they are sold out it is pretty hard to book with the company itself, as they have a contract with the cruise line.

No problem. We all want to have a good time and accommodate everyone and giving them all the access and availability of each page.

Thank you very much for including me in your FE group.

We just booked our cruise and I am new to the whole FE thing. I have a couple of questions before I sign up. How many gifts will I need to get and will I need to pass them all out on the same day? We are all looking forward to ending our summer with the cruise!!

to the DISboards and to our cruise thread!
It's great to know that you are on board as well.

To answer your questions about the FE. It is up to you how you give your FE gifts. You can deliver them whenever you want over the course of the cruise. As for how many gifts - you need to give one gift to every family/stateroom on your FE list. If you give a stateroom gift, or if you give gifts for the individual people in the stateroom is up to you again.

Please be aware: Sign up for the FE will close tomorrow at midnight!! IF you decide to join please let me know the first names of everyone, the ages of the kids and your stateroom number.

Family w/ 6yo boy and 5yo girl looking to join FE Group

Hi, this will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. We have done door decorations in the past, but have not done the FE exchange, and are excited to participate!

My husband and I have a 6yo son, soon to be in the 1st grade, who LOVES the Kids' club. We are also traveling with another family who has a 5yo daughter. We don't know our rooms yet, we have a guaranteed inside room, on deck 8, 9, or 10.

Please let me know what I need to do to participate. I don't have a FE, but am working on getting/making one. Looking forward to a fun cruise! If anyone has kids in the 5-7 range that are looking for playmates, please let us know.
