2. Is MagruderMakes3 out? They are on the spreadsheet but not on Silmarg's list.

3. Our friends, TheChavezLuvDisney is DW,DH,DD9,DD7. On the spreadsheet it is ? & ? for Men and Women.....I just thought I'd clear that up!

Thank you Silmarg and Disney1430 for putting the FE list together, it is greatly appreciated
1.Rasmussen family is my typo (its corrected below)
2.Magruders are out
3.Chavez is noted

I will have a dry erase board and extra copies of the FE list - if you change staterooms or take an upgrade, please write it on my board.

I agree with another poster, we spread out our delivery of FEs over a few days. Actually if the kids are driving us nuts in our room, we ask them to deliver a few FEs for us!!! We've seemed to have good luck in our prior FEs with gifts being naturally spreadout.

My older DD is a pin trader.

The boys are getting excited too,my oldest(15)came in the house with the
mail,with a big smile saying"We got a package from Disney".
I'm finding no matter how old they get I still see those little boy smiles.

MatthewsMommy are you flying out Wed?We have a 7 A.M. flight so we
could get settled at the hotel and still have time for Magic Kingdom before
going to Bomas for dinner.

Really looking forward to Valentines this year.

We like to spread it out.

We also break it out - I also let my two kids deliver them. They like to split them up between them and sneak them in to the FE's when no ones looking

I think the Idea of having someone have a dry erase board in front of their cabin door in case someone has a cabin change at check-in or if someone needs to leave the FE people a message is a really good idea

If you booked with Dreams Unlimited, they have been including a dry erase board in the gift baskets they are placing in the staterooms for their clients.

I've never booked through them - we usually book while sailing (for discount and on board credit) then switch over to AAA once they start giving out the free photo packages - that way we keep the discout and on-board credit.

Queston - so I know for next time can you transfer an existing reservation to Dreams Unlimited and keep all your benifits of booking onboard AND get their extra benifits too??????

Has the group decided when and where the meet and greet will be ?????

I know as soon as we get on the ship - DD and I have to head to the chil spa to book her an appointment (can't do it online) - We were also thinking of changing our Dinner time to the earlier time (any thoughts out there Hey or Nay)?

Oh, car, thanks for the reminder. Still need to book a car to the airport. Although looking at the packing list, I may need to book an SUV this time.

I'm desperate for the early dinner time as well. That late seating just doesn't work for me.

Ha Ha - We've already booked a SUV - Not sure that will be BIG enough either

- Oh well, we can always strap one of the kids to the roof-top (JK)

We switched a to the late diner the 2nd time we went on a Disney Cruise, because DS would always fall asleep at the shows (and be VERY SAD that he missed it). At dinner, if he feel asleep, the waiters just pulled up an extra chair proped his feet up, layed a napkin over him, packed up his dinner and let him sleep.

Now that both are older we don't have that problem (thank goodness, but truth be told I miss it too...) - So, we thought we would try it again my only concern is the popularity of the early dinner might be a little crowded - we love conversating and joking with the wait staff and they might be too rushed to be able too

Decisions Decsions???
