I realize it's too late to officially get on the list, but definitely post your info. I'm planning on taking extras for last-minute additions.

I noticed on the FE there aren't alot of people in the aft section of the boat...hoping I didn't make a bad choice for our rooms! We are aft on deck 10...anyone else there with us?
Hi Chriss,

We are aft on the 6th deck. On our 3 cruises we have had forward, mid, & aft. I love the views the best from aft. This boat is a bit bigger than the others that I have been on so we shall see if it is a long walk! We have to work off our indulges so that's OK!

Thanks for the Welcome everyone! robhawk, DizDragonfly, kshark1958(not our first Disney cruise, but first time on Fantasy and always looking for new tips and tricks). Mom3NY, I'm sure our sons will have a blast!

Since we booked so late we had to go with late dinner seating, first time we have had this. Guess we will see how it plays out with sending our son to the Oceaneers Club after he has eats.

Working the next two weeks is going to be tough

Does anyone want to have a meeting time/place on the ship?

This is our second crusie and we had a meeting place with our FE group on our first cruise. It was great to meet people that first day and the kids really enjoyed it. My kids are DD 11 (almost 12) and DD 7. Is anyone interested? Perhaps on Saturday when we board the ship - around 4:00pm? Place to meet?

I think thats a great idea! Maybe someone that has been on the Fantasy/Dream would have a good spot to meet.
We aren't doing the FE or Pink Champagne so this would work out better for us.

We are doing the Pink Champagne but still would like to meet and thank or buy a drink for the people on this thread who have helped me greatly with the planning of our first cruise. On Saturday the wife and I being first time cruisers will be exploring and getting to know the ship or just winding down from the excitement. So in my opinion maybe Sunday first sea day may be better. Maybe you guys and gals with experience in this stuff will have a better idea. I'm open to anything.

Definitely interested in a meeting too! This is my first Disney cruise, so I have no idea where a good place might be.

We almost always cruise aft (as in facing aft overlooking the wake of the ship). We're also on deck 6

That is when the safety drill takes place.

can't believe it. Two weeks! My biggest dilemma is getting to port. We are using a rental . Originally we were staying at the country suites but we found a room in Cocoa beach for 60.00 less. My plan is to arrive early- very early to budget and wait for a shuttle. I have had mixed reports of how that is going to work. I have to stop obsessing over my decision!
We booked the Mayian ruins through disney and Mr. Sanchos and the turtle farm on our own. The biggest thing I am looking forward to is our Palo brunch scheduled for our first full day at sea. and I guess I have delayed buying a dress for long enough so that is this wekend's mission.

In case you have not heard this idea...

The rental driver can go to port and drop off your party and luggage. They can take the driver's passport too and start checkin. The driver can return the rental and take the shuttle to port. The driver needs photo id (license) to enter the terminal.

With this approach you have much less hassle with multiple people and bags on the shuttle, and the port and rental car locations are all close enough where this can be done in time.
