Thank you! We have Happy Limo picking us up at WL at 10 am for an 11:30 port arrival time. I scheduled the call for 10:45 during the drive. We were going to wait until we arrived at the port and he saw the ships, but I think this will let it sink in before we arrive . I'm sure when we leave to go to WDW, he'll be asking about a cruise, so I can't wait to surprise him!

Hi all,

I've been MIA for awhile. The month of December really gets crazy around here with the holidays and an impromptu trip to Disney in the beginning of the month. My daughter is a cheerleader with Pop Warner. Their team qualified for the National Competition in Disney where they took 1st place. National Champions!! It was all very exciting.

Both payments for the cruise and the cheer competition were due the same day. Imagine how much fun that was on my bank account.

But now I can finally concentrate on our cruise!!! Awhile back I thought someone was keeping an Excel spreadsheet of the FE list on Google docs. Can someone send me a link?

Also. Will there be a cut off date? It looks like we have about 30 rooms and over 100 people. Which is AWESOME!! I have some great ideas but some of the things I need I have to order. Want to make sure I order enough.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Has anybody been to Boatswain Park on GC or the Atlantis Sub. The wife and I have booked the Atlantis but may change it to Boatswain. Being first time cruisers we are playing it safe and booking through DCL. The problem being Boatswain says 4.5 -5 hours and we are in port for I think 5 hours which doesn't leave a lot of time for visiting the shops in town or other just walking around. We did these subs in Hawaii and I'm thinking they are pretty much the same. Health issues with my ears prevents me from snorkeling so its the only way I get to see stuff underwater. Is Boatswain worth the time and can you leave early

All additions to FE list in 2013 will be "provisional members" of the FE group where they need to understand they may not get the same (or any) gift from other participants who ordered gifts based on the 12.31.2012 list.

It "feels" like this cruise has been more or less sold out for some time. There wont be any big discounts on this one... So I dont think we will see many more FE requests at this juncture.

Happy New Years everyone!

Hey everyone dong the FE,

While making tags - I was checking and cross checking the FE List and the Work Doc list and came across some discrepancy.

1. Cleogoldfish is 6036 above and 6063 on Word Doc

2. Twinsandagirl (grandparents) are listed above as 6650 on Word Doc as 7076

3. Twinsandagirl have updated their room number to 7078

Interesting, I checked the pricing just now for a party of four (2A2C) and I see there are guaranteed IGT, OGT and VGT rates for our cruise, and for the 2/23 sailing too.

The Feb 2 and Feb 9 sailings aren't listing the GT rates.

(For those who aren't familiar... the guaranteed (GT) rates are discounted for different staterooms types for new bookings only. You are assigned a stateroom; you don't get to pick. IGT is inside, OGT is outside, and VGT is verandah.)
