to the crew!!! How old is your DD going to be on the cruise?

Well, it would really depend on how old they will be. It is more difficult at the end of the year once they start with the end of grade tests. One thing that made us decided on the EB was that it started before school started & we could spend some time in CA at DL. [They were in 3rd & 4rd grade that year.] The kids and I had never been to the west coast so it was our first trip to DL. I didn't want to do the WB, rush to get on a plane to get the kids back to school and never see anything in CA except for the port & the airport. It's like going on the TA. We were going to spend a week in Barcelona to make it worth the cost of the plane ticket.

They are seven now and will be eight, almost nine, when the WBPC happens. The end of 3rd grade. We are also thinking that the following year, 2014, might be our last chance for a transatlantic. Once they go to middle school (that starts in 5th grade here) we won't be able to take them out of school for this stuff.

We actually are still up in the air about doing the EBTA or the WBPC. But if we do the TA we would need to stay in Barcelona for a few days. We couldn't just come right back home. That will make the trip almost three weeks with flights in and out . So we're leaning toward the PC, we really don't need to spend extra time in Miami or in LA (we're doing the MR again in three weeks).

It'd be nice if we could just take a few cruises each year .

It's nice to have such hard choices

Just booked this cruise!

Just wanted to say Hi. I just cancelled our September Fantasy cruise due to a change in fall break dates. Fortunately this cruise is on my kid's spring break. This will be our 3rd DCL cruise. We did Alaska & Mexico last year.
Our family consists of me - Jennifer, DH, DS (12) & DD (10). My parents and brothers will also be joining us. This is their first cruise. We are hoping to spend the week prior to the cruise at WDW.
My family enjoyed the FE on our last cruise and would like to do it again. I'm not sure my parents or brothers will participate yet but we'll see.
We are headed to Aulani this March for spring break and I am very excited to see the resort!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
Jennifer

Hi everyone! well I now feel safe posting on this thread - just found out the kids' spring break dates for next year, and thankfully I guessed correctly, so we WILL be joining you all on this cruise! Yea!

I'm Laurie, dh is Mark, we have a son Josh who will be almost 15 at time of sailing, and Katie will be 13. This will be our 3rd disney cruise, and we are dvc members as well. Boy we got hooked after our first cruise, and finding out about the great onboard booking advantage!

We've been on a 5 night cruise on both the Wonder and the Dream, so really looking forward to a 7 night!

I confess I'm a bit jealous you are going on the MV, but am very excited that we can get a firsthand account of the new ship from you when you return!! I'm sure it will be an amazing time!

Yes please let us know when you post pictures and a trip report of the Fantasy.


BTW does anyone know when the NYC school calendar for 2012/13 comes out ?
I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I didn't book this cruise in the wrong week. I got such a deal that I'm willing to .......

I have set up a FB page for this cruise and will be able to upload pictures and short reports there pretty easily. I don't post trip reports here, but will probably do a blog/note there. It is listed under "DCL Fantasy Spring Break March 23, 2013". Send me a PM here to let me know that you are a part of the DIS group if you send a request. I've found that a FB group has helped to keep some discussions grouped and easier to keep up with, along with a private group being a bit more secure than an open forum for planning and information.
