Miss you bunches (ok, and wally too...)
Well then ... mission accomplished Miss you bunches too and so does Wally Oh and I will be bringing the scary magnet you made for me on the Fantasy Maiden Voyage next month. Since none of the DISpeeps are on that sailing then all's y'alls will just have to be there in spirit with me somehow

Hi everybody I just booked this cruise on Friday, and while I wanted to post right away, I had done it in secret so the family didn't know until last night. Totally surprised them; we were sitting eating a late lunch before the Superbowl, and our discussion turn to Disney and the Disney cruise. I played some mickey the dunce for a while pretending I didn't know they wanted to go, then told them we should book right away since they were booking up. After letting them worry for a bit, I told them I had just booked our cabin on Friday.
We got a 4D Deluxe Family Oceanview with veranda, cabin 6096.
This will be our 5th Disney cruise, first with a veranda. We can't wait to see the Fantasy; we met up with some Dis folks on our last cruise, we can't wait for this one.
It will be me, DW, and 2 kids, DD who will be 16 then, and DS who will be 14.

gallaj0!!! What a fun way to surprise your family!! My DS will be 13 (halfway to 14) when we cruise. Gosh that sounds so weird! I can't believe I'm going to have a teenager in the house before this year is over!!

So, do we have any first time cruisers on this thread? If so, do any of you have any questions? There are several of us on here that are veteran cruisers and I'm sure I speak for all of them when I say we would be happy to answer any questions!

While not a first timer but do have a question on the sail away party.

Our first Disney cruise was 10/9 and our sail away was inside due to the weather, and then we didn't leave port until around 4-5 am. We would like to experience the sail away, but also would like to enjoy leaving from our balcony as well. Would we have time to do this or are we better to just stay up on the deck

You have time to do both. Go up to the deck for the sail away party and after they do the countdown and the captain blows the horn, go back to your stateroom to watch us sail away from your verandah. It takes a few minutes for the captain to navigate away from the dock, so you'll have plenty of time to get back to your stateroom.

I must say, the sail away party is lots of fun - not to be missed IMO.

When we went on our first DCL we were nervous about the concept of cruising. Once we went to the sail away party I knew I was hooked.

I think it would have been better last October had I not been so worried about the weather. I have to say the flight was the worst I've ever had. Then to be locked down in the port was a little nerve racking. We are hoping this time will be so more memorable
