I can't wait for Christmas so I can surprise DD too! On our Disney trips in the past, we have had so much fun planning everything together, I am really looking forward to her excitement, and to filling her in on all the fun we are going to be having!

Are they prompt with the call? I was thinking of doing this either the morning we leave for WDW or the morning we go from WDW to the port.

Question about dinner attire. I have checked different forums about dinner attire for formal, semi formal and other nights with answers all over the place. You experienced Cruisers on this forum are giving me great answers on everything else so I ask what is the proper attire for the different dinner nights. I am not a suit person unless I have to. Normally my dress up is a pair of slacks, nice button shirt with a pair of bucks. Also we are doing dinner at Palo one night.

From what I observed on my last cruise, your normal dress up that you describe will be fine for any of the nights - formal, semi formal, regular dining, and Palo. It's recommended that men wear a jacket to Palo and I still feel like that's the way to go, but the state of dress I saw in Palo was much less formal than I read about.

For formal night, if you wanted to go full tuxedo you can. But you don't need to. I do plan to wear a suit to formal night, semi formal and to Palo. I don't own a tuxedo and I don't feel compelled to rent one for formal night.

Jcarwash is right. I would say that attire is "recommended" not "required" on dcl. That said, we always change into something nice for all dinners when aboard and will put on a jacket / tie on the formal nite.

On my 15 day Panama Canal cruise there were two formal nites and the DISers were a couple hundred cabins strong and most of us did do the tuxedo thing (rentals). It was a peer pressure thing. And it was very cool.

Hi All - I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We "gave" the boys the cruise yesterday, so the secret is finally out. I just updated my Google doc of the FE list to match silmarg's most recent list. Feel free to fill in any blanks or fix any mistakes:

We just got back from a last minute trip to the world and it was packed, but we had a blast. Also came back to a 8-10" snow storm and that was fun as it took 2 1/2 times longer(from airport) to get home from sunny Florida. Could have worse as some with connects got canceled.

Now the focus is on this trip!

Lucky you! I wish I was at WDW right now myself! We're from Michigan too, DD really wanted a white Christmas, and she got a dusting on Christmas day, then the major snowfall yesterday.

Our Christmas surprise for DD was great! The immediate phone call from Mickey was pretty fast (less than 5 minutes), and I ended up with a great video of DD opening her surprise box. My favorite quote was her reaction to getting the Birnbaum Disney Cruise book, she said, "I need to get reading, I need to know how to have an awesome time!" She is a future DISer for sure!

Only Cost us $52.00 for Group G. We have an arrival time of 11:00 at Port.
