Good morning fellow cruisers. Another month has gone by.
We now have only

months to go to the Fantasy.

Yes! We booked July first and then the June opportunity came up so we'll be there a week in June as well. DH figures we either pay for camp for the kids for a week or we can go to Orlando for a week. July we traded into Saratoga Springs with our Hilton timeshare and June was an extra week we were given for a very good rate when we deposited our Sanibel week this year. We'll be staying off property at one of the Marriott timeshares. I may even be there twice in July. The weekend before we're scheduled to go there's a taekwondo tournament at Coronado Springs that DS wants to participate in. He and I may go up for that, come home for a week and then the whole family go up the next weekend. We won't be at the parks every day during either week we're there. We'll be spending lots of time at the pool and hanging out at the resort. Even though we have our own pool there's something about resort and cruise ship pools that my kids just love. DH can't understand it. May make a trip to Legoland as well and probably the water parks.

Last year was the first year we didn't go for a week in early June right after school got in a long time (we had a family reunion-type trip to CT for Father's Day weekend instead). We like early June because its not as hot and isn't as crowded yet. Our schools get out really early in South Florida (although this year its a bit later than it has been in the past). I haven't been to Orlando in July in years and its something I've avoided but I couldn't pass up DH actually wanting to stay on Disney property. He's not as crazy about Disney as I am.
That's me being green with envy! Lucky you!! DH and I were recently talking about retiring to Celebration one day, so we could visit Disney frequently with that FL resident discount. Maybe, if it's not too crazy, we can try to meet up for a bit at WDW in June, so the kids could get acquainted.

Last time we went WDW it was early April for spring break, and I actually thought it was a little too chilly in the mornings. DH and I took our first vacation together there in July, and it was pretty sweltering. Early June sounds good to me!

We just returned from our 5-night Double Dip on the Dream! Such an awesome cruise that we rebooked before getting off for this cruise.

Please add us (me, DH & DS(11)) to attendee list and also the FE group.

Also, I sent a FB request to be added. Y'all are so organized!

Very excited!! I just paid my WDW in full this week, and my TA asked if I needed anything for either my land or sea vacations. I mentioned that I would be booking my own excursions for the cruise instead of going through DCL, and she seemed shocked. She said she'd never heard of anyone doing that before! I'm wondering if she's been a travel agent for very long! At any rate, she has been very helpful and responsive, so I'm happy to educate her.

There have been some more pics, videos, and reports trickling onto the boards of the MV. Is this week the first Fantasy Eastern? I can't wait to see Navigators and trippies for that one!

Congrats on being PIF. Have a great time at WDW. Wow on excusions. We have been on 7 cruises so far and only took one DCL excusion. I guess the TA's are trying to help DCL make more $$$.
Today starts the first Fantasy Eastern cruise. There has been reports that DCL has changed up the Sailaway and Till We Meet Again events. We'll have to see how they measure up to the Magic's.

Thank you for the link. This is the only disney vacation we have planned right now, so I need to get my Disney fix on the internet. We were on the members cruise in Sept., but that seems forever ago.
