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!

Hello! Last minute change of plans for us! We were originally booked for Jan 2013 but the prices were too good to pass up so now our Disney cruise is moved up to 4 Nov. This will be our first time on a Disney cruise and during my earlier "trolls" I keep reading about FEs. I think my kids would love it and I'd like to sign up of for FE 2 group if still possible. I know I don't have much time but I suppose the group is not so large yet that it is still doable.
BTW - cruisers will be me (mom), DD11, DS6 and DD13 - yup! solo parent for this cruise. I'm still waiting for teacher concurrence to take my DD13 out of school for 3 days since they don't have school Mon-Tue anyway. I know the kids have heard me talk about the cruise but I don't think they know it's coming up - and quick! I may just keep it a surprise. It's also a gift for my DS6 who will be turning 7 right before Thanksgiving - and it will be his first cruise. I hope he loves it. We have a GTY cabin so no assignment yet. I'm really looking forward to this cruise and I think it still has not hit me that it is coming up --- FAST!

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!
That's awesome she is doing the DCP. I did the DCP in Fall 2007 and it was awesome! I wanted to bring my car, and my dad didn't want me to make the drive alone so we had a really fun road trip My parents visited quite a few times and ended up becoming DVC members, I went home when it was over, couldn't stay away (plus I had met my eventual husband and couldn't be away from him) I came back was offered full time and have been here ever since! Now, my little sister has followed and completed her DCP and decided to stay as well Disney sure knows how to pull you in!

Putting you on the spreadsheet for group 2. Can I have some names in case people want to personalize the gifts? Also need your stateroom number so we know where to drop off the goodies.

Sure thing! we don't have our stateroom assigned yet. we have GTY - i'm hoping we get an assignment sooner than boarding day.

Our party includes me, Cecilia, Taylor (13F), Rebecca (11F), and Donovan (6M).

I'm getting more and more excited as I think about this upcoming cruise!

Got you all squared away.

Oh, so I can't just spend forever buying stuff, I actually have to sit down and make them eventually? Maybe just one more trip to Joann's...

Mine (well the supplies) have taken over our kitchen table. I better start putting them together before DH starts wondering if I'm opening up my own craft store instead

FEs

well..after much perusing through the internet I think I've decided on my FE gifts and have started to make a few as a "prototype." BTW -- do they have to be homemade or can they be store-bought?

so far all 3 kids are unaware that we are going on a cruise in November. They see me making the crafts but they think it's for something else. I think I'll wait until the last week and then make an announcement..or maybe not. They do know we're going to Florida in November to meet up with cousins - NOT!

Okay - time to get back to crafts!

Just got off the Magic yesterday. It was sso awesome, but the Dream is prettier in my opinion. But both are great ships. I am so glad it's just 5 more weeks till we set sail again. I wish I could just sail every 5 weeks!

They can be whatever you want. Mine are semi-homemade. I bought a bunch of supplies that'll need assembly but there are some pre-made pieces too.

Red face November 8th Disney Dream Cruise from Port Carnival

We recently booked the Nov. 8th sailing for 2012 on the Dream.
I would love to talk to others going on this cruise as well, and compare notes of course.
I would also like to get involved in a Fish Extender exchange. I hope someone with more knowledge can explain exactly how it all works.

But mostly, I want this thread to get us all prepared and excited for our upcoming cruise.

Hi! Welcome to the DIS!

While you are welcome to learn and talk about the cruise with us, it looks like you might have posted in the wrong cruise meet thread. We'll actually be getting off the boat on November 8th . We'll be all the sad people you see, as you walk up to start your awesome vacation.

I looked for your cruise meet thread and found it here. They can tell you all about the Fish Extender and how they are organizing it for the Nov. 8th sailing date. I hope you have a great time!!
