Welcome to the group! I hope you find all the answers you are looking for on the different activities. I think the trip reports as they start coming in will be helpful for planning for all of us. I've been trying to find ones from close to holiday sailings to read the passengers perspectives of the different holiday festivities. I really enjoy looking over our cruise website and reading about the different holiday activities that occur on board the Disney ships.

Has anyone done the Christmas party before? I <3 looking at the pictures my friends post when they attend. The castle looks AMAZING. We almost did the Halloween Party last year. We were at the Magic Kingdom two days when it was occurring later that night. Although I've always wanted to do the Christmas one more than the Halloween one so we didn't do it. I think the rest of the family will be amazed with the Osborne Family Lights at Hollywood and the Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom.

Lianne are you going to try and do 2 days of parks while your down there? I really want to go down 3 days before we cruise, so that I can atleast do the party and osbourne lights. I am just hoping to save enough money to do that.

I am so behind the times! I just now checked for a meet up group and we've been signed up for this cruise forever! It's our second cruise, first was almost exactly a year ago on the Wonder to Mexico.

We are from Washington State, My name is Melissa, I'll be traveling with my husband LeeRoy, and kids Grace (will be 13) and Logan (will be 15).

Our stateroom is 8598, we have main dining. Definitely want to participate in the exchanges, we won't be going to WDW, it is just not a possibility for this trip.

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

I am planning on taking the kids to both Hollywood for the lights and Magic Kingdom for the Party. Maybe even do the Candlelight Processional
at Epcot. We performed in it several years during high school so I would enjoy sharing it with the kids as well.

It is all going to depend on the dates they have available and how my finals will fall. Technically the 14th is my graduation date so I know I'll be able to get on the ship that day as we won't have any classes. I'm not sure how finals will fall or how Disney's dates will line up with our dates for the cruise. So I'll just have to plan on doing it and as it gets closer and I have set dates, then I can actually plan for it whether it is before or after the cruise.

Hi Melissa. Welcome to our group!! You will find that we are a pretty chatty bunch. I have a daughter (Gabi) that will be 14 by the time we cruise. Glad ya found us

Is there a mvmcp after we get off the cruise? I didnt think they did them that late in the month. I could be wrong though. Anyhoot, I just definitely hope to be going. I really want a pic of the castle at night with all the pretty lights.

Osborne Lights...not a good pic.

I will have to go find my awesome pic of the castle at Xmas time and post it....It is gorgeous!!
There won't be any dates after our cruise for MVMCP...usually ends the 19th or before so I would be shocked if there were....the past years would tell me NO. I can't wait to go and share it with my New York BFF's(disneydiva & 2pirates&1princess)....we always have a blast together and Robin hasn't been ever...Norma, not so sure. I love MVMCP....even more magical!!

I am with you on the castle pic!

Anyways I just did a quick google search after you said that. You are correct. The Party seems to end around the 18-19th of the month or at least it has the last few years. I know the Christmas lights still go for a bit longer so maybe party before the cruise and enjoy the lights the night we get back in?!? Seems they release the dates for the partys around late April / early May.

If I get too chatty just PM me or something to tell me to stop replying to everyone. I like being involved so far in advance. Although hopefully this doesn't distract me to the length that the Dream cruise did for my GMAT exam. Didn't do as well as I'd hope but I still was admitted to my one and only choice.

I feel so left out when I reply from work because I can't see the pictures. So I'll have to go home and see what lovely ones you've found.

And Welcome Melissa!

Lianne,
I can't speak for anyone else but Robin, Norma and I will chat right along with you till we meet. We like a chatty bunch cause it helps get through the time and actually made our last cruise together a hard one to beat. We chatted with our "Dreamers" for over a yr and we all felt like we knew so much about each other when we got onboard that it did feel like we had friends onboard. So we love the chattiness!!! I will go look for a pic of the castle to post before I go to bed so you can see when you get home!!
