Here is a link to the navigators from the Western Fantasy I took last year. Not an Eastern but should give you some good idea of the daily schedule onboard the ship.

If we can add to the Bernard's tour, we may add 4-12 others -will look into the website. In our group will also be girls 9 and 16 (turning 17 on cruise) and boys 7 and 12. We would be interested in meeting in Disney before the cruise for those staying at Disney prior. We fall into the educator segment with DH teaching 6th grade social studies and myself a school social worker - summer cannot be here soon enough! Will hopefully keep up with the boards before the cruise so keep posting great ideas.
Amen! I'm an assistant principal and I feel the same way! Looking forward to relaxing, avoiding schedules, and not talking about school . I love my work, but my husband is a teacher too and sometimes it's a little too much

Hi all! What are the chances they will premiere 'Monsters University' on the ship? It comes out June 21. Has this ever happened on a ship before during the dates of a Disney movie premiere? I'm hoping so!

It should. I believe they will do a late night showing of it on Thursday. Then it would probably show several times on Friday.

DCL will show new movies with premEAR at 12:01am on the 21st. They will show the movie many times in the Buena Vista theatre and maybe even the Walt Disney theatre one night (usually Pirate night).

We have not. It is a personal choice. It would depend on how many shutters pictures you take. If you attend a lot of the pre-dinner events with the characters and on Castaway Cay you can get hundreds of pictures and the cost per picture could be very well be worth it. Unfortunately with kids we end up with a lot of closed eyes, looking the other way, goofy looks, etc so we usually end up with only approx. 20 pictures we really want therefore we just buy a picture package.

Does the $399 include all the prints or not? I've seen some Navigators that say $399 for photo cd and some that say $349 for cd + $50 for all the prints that they've made. Is the cd plus prints thing a sometime special, or do they always come with the cd?

I'm a little picture happy, and I like to have my images digitized, so I'll probably spring for the cd and then take advantage of every possible photo opportunity to make it worthwhile, but if it comes with the prints as well, that's really a fairly reasonable deal.

For those who didn't see it on facebook, check out my son on the cover of USA Weekend today!



Here is a link to the story which includes a reaction from each member of our family to the recent and upcoming changes at Disney World (and some general amusement park tips from me)!

The current standard price that I last saw was $399 for the CD and $50 extra for all the prints. They do run "specials" but we will not know if there will be one until we are onboard. If attend a lot of photo ops then the CD can be a good deal.

Regarding the picture CD, while I don't remember what the price was (step on ship, lose mind, believe that this time, money will grow on trees!), I don't regret buying it on the Dream two years ago.

I also take lots of pictures. I like forcing my daughters and husband to have their pictures taken. At the end of the cruise, I tell myself I shall only buy one or two pictures, and then the Disney drug hits me, and I want them all. Truly, how is it that the photographers can make them all look so good? Heck, I even see an occasional picture of myself void of eye bags and stomach rolls! I must buy that picture, and then the one, or four, of my youngest with her favorite princess since she was 2, Belle, the oldest being her silly adorable self, DH pretending trying to scowl in the formal picture, well, you get the idea.

Too many good ones to pass up, pictures that when added to the other vacation pics of the past, show my family's smiles through the years. You just can't put a price on those memories (ok, you can, but I have blocked the tragic number on my final bills from memory).

Bobbi565, that is really cool! Perhaps we shall ask for autographs from your son, the famous Disney model!

All you teachers out there, does anyone teach Kindergarten or First Grade? My youngest DD, heading to college this fall, is going for an Elementary Ed degree with hopes of teaching the younger children. If she learns there are teachers willing to share, she just might ask some questions, if you wouldn't mind!

Now wish me luck, today I take my eldest formal dress shopping. Here's to finding a dress in the first 100 stores we visit, with a minimum of frustration!

cell phone use

While I'm excited about getting away from a cell phone for 7 days, I know that we will want/need to check in with home. (Ive already told work I couldn't call in though!) Does anyone know the rates or how it works in USVI and out to sea? We have service with ATT.

Ambersharley, here is what I found on the DCL site -

Cell Phone Services
In addition to dedicated locations where you can take advantage of ship-to-shore calling, Disney Cruise Line features Cellular at Sea phone service—so you can use your own cell phone or wireless PDA just as you would on land. Available from most cell phone carriers including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, this service is currently accessible in staterooms.
Note: Usage rates and international roaming rates vary as you travel. Be sure to contact your cell phone provider to learn these rates before your cruise. Disney Cruise Line recommends that Guests seeking to avoid the unwanted costs associated with data downloads keep their wireless devices turned off during their cruise.


Regarding St. Thomas, I am not sure about ATT, for I have Sprint, but I did an online chat with my carrier and was told that in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Thomas, I am not charged for roaming. I figure if I have it straight from my carrier, and I have it in writing, I will have no exhorbitant fees when I check in with things back home. Even if I only speak to the housesitter for a minute, knowing my pets are ok and my house is still standing will help me enjoy my vacation all the more!
