We are also DVC and looking forward to staying at Saratoga after the cruise. I only wish Fantasyland was opened!!
Our DD works at WDW and was in a preview group for CM's a couple of weeks ago. She got us some fish extender gifts from one of the new gift shops. While not everything is open I know that the new restaurant is now taking ressies. Our DD booked dinner for DW and me for a birthday present (10/30) don't know what day as it is a surprise, but DW told me about the ressie but not the date. We will be staying there both prior to and after our 10/20 and 11/4 cruises.

On the cruise I have Myself, DH, DS (13), DD (11) and DS (8). We were in a FE group our last Dream cruise and our kids would be extremely disappointed if we were not part of one this cruise, it was one of their highlights coming back to the room and finding new treasures in the bag.

If anyone is interested, please PM me or post here. I know the cruise is quickly approaching!! I'm thinking we keep it simple but fun for all!

OR, if you are part of the original FE group and have some extra goodies for the FE, I will gladly reciprocate with just your family. I just want to work a little magic for my kids.

Thanks!
Karen
Let me know room number. We have extra FE's. Also does your DD have a favorite Disney Princess? Phil

Didn't make the cut

Like cinnamon_girl, we were late to the game on this one and didn't make the cut for the original FE group. This is our second DCL cruise and we were not familiar with what a FE is until we found this discussion. It sounds right up our alley and like it would make the trip that much more special for our kids.

We REALLY want to participate but are worried that we're too late to the game. Any experienced cruisers who have participated in FE's before that could alleviate our concerns here? At this point (41 days out) do many late comers jump in to participate? There are only three families participating in our FE thus far....

We've already got a bunch of cool ideas for FE gifts that we're itching to get started on but don't want to make too many if it's unlikely that many more people will join our group.

We're really hoping it's not too late to get in on the fun.

Cut out the fabric for my FE tonight after making the pattern yesterday. For being my first sewing project ever, I'm pretty excited and just had to tell someone who would understand!

So Excited!!!

We did it! Finally booked our cruise celebrating our 1 year anniversary. Last year we went on the Dream on 11/13 for our honeymoon and it was amazing! This year we are hoping to experience more of the ship and have even more fun, as we didn't make it to any shows or many activities last year, it was all so overwhelming! What are some suggestions on things we shouldn't miss out on?

Definitely don't miss the shows. They are amazing! Especially Villians.

Ok, good to know! I'm going through some navigators now to make a potential list of things we don't want to miss

Welcome! I think that is so awesome that you spent your honeymoon on the Dream almost one year ago. What a fun way to celebrate an anniversary!

So we are at 39 days now!! When will we starting getting paperwork? I don't want to give my cabin # for the FE until I have paperwork in hand since they have already changed my cabin # on me. Can't believe we leave for WDW in 34 days!

And Better Yet, Monday we found out that our oldest DD will be participating in the DCP Spring 2013 program!!!! So now I have to plan to return to Disney in late Jan/early Feb to help her settle in for the program. She is take her vehicle down so we don't want her driving that far alone... Wow and then I'm definitely going to have to go back to visit her!!! She is doing the extended program so she will be there for 7 months. I can hardly believe that I'm going to be the mom of a Disney Cast Member!! I am so excited for her!

ALMOST THERE! I can smell the ocean. The gentle rocking of the ship coaxing me to sleep after a full day of fun!


ATTENTION FE GROUP 2!!!
I have you alls on the spreadsheet. PLEASE NOTE: there is a new column for the first group for people that want to participate in BOTH groups. (Yeah, that means you have to make gifts for them too). So far it's just Pam and me, but if there are any other group 1 folks that would like to participate with group 2 also, just post or PM me and I'll sign you up. (it just happens that our gifts are stateroom gifts and we always make a few more).

My agent said we should expect paperwork to arrive in about 3-4 weeks as their office is in Florida and apparently Florida offices get their stuff from Disney last. Once they get the paperwork they'll send it out to clients. My DH says I still can't start packing yet, I think I might start working on a packing list though

I know that the minute I stop thinking about the paperwork coming and getting so anxious to get the mail each day, that will be the day it comes! Weird that Florida gets it last though??

And LOL to your DH saying you can't start packing yet. In our guest bedroom, I have a drawer full of "things" that I don't want to forget. I can pretend it's not really packing...but it totally is! My in-laws come stay here in a few weeks so I might have to clean up my mess in there...

Our DD went on the DCP after her Junior and Senior year. One we got a call from her that WDW offered her a full time position and she was staying there. That was almost 11 years ago and she is still there. She says she is having the time of her life and gets paid for it.. Met a young man selling Turkey legs (they got married 4/12/12). She is going on this cruise with us.

We use her as our excuse to make several trips a year to WDW. Your DD will love it. Phil
