Can't wait to see everyone onboard!

Welcome! We are just passing time until we can board the FANTASY

We stayed at AKV last February and had a standard view and it was great. On our way to and from our room each day we would always stop off at the viewing area. We use our DVC points and the difference between view and non-view were quite high.

I would save your money for spending on the cruise and stay in a standard room and use the viewing areas. Remember, You are not guaranteed to see any animals.

It's our intention to get off the cruise and stay in a 1BR at AKV over Christmas.

savannah view - absolutely!!!

Stayed there for 3 nights prior to our Disney Magic cruise last year and it was amazing - worth every cent!!!! The AKL also has a ton of activites for kids that time of year - we could have just stayed on the resort itself it was that fantastic!!

Prepping for snow armageddon up here in New England -- at least that's what the media's making it sound like.

How long until we're all in the Caribbean?

CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

It does sound quite awful. I hope Nemo is gentle on everyone and doesn't like up to the hype surrounding it.

Yikes! I am SO behind on the boards--I don't even remember where I left off the last time I was here Looks like you guys are MUCH more chatty than my last group, so I'll have to stop in more often. I've been waiting to see if the FB group becomes more active.

I've started on my FE gifts and cannot wait to give them out! How many staterooms will it max out at?

It was pretty bad. We live on an island with three towns and virtually everyone is without power. Our son used to be on a special, strict medical diet and so we bought a generator for his food two years ago. So grateful for it now as our pellet stove can be run for heat. That's the problem right now....no power =no heat for most people. Warming shelters are opening later today ... Once roads are clear.

That sounds horrible! Hope it clears up soon. Glad to hear you guys have a generator to help with keeping you warm but what is a pellet stove?

It's like a wood burning stove, but burns little pellets that look like rabbit food. It's doing a decent job of heating our house. But it's going down to single digits tonight.... Only shelter /warming center on island will hold 500 folks....there are 40,000+ customers w/o power in our local community. .
Just think warm thoughts for those people! Friends are coming over to camp out in our living room!
Three cheers for the line workers who are doing everything they can do!

So we're back in the land of electricity!

I spend a couple of the snowed in days talking with my TA and we decided to stay on Disney property pre-cruise! Even though I've been to WDW several times, I've never stayed in a Disney hotel. We chose the Port Orleans French Quarter --- is anyone staying there or nearby? I liked the fact that it had a fun pool and was close to DTD. Especially if we decided NOT to do the Christmas Party.

We are close to the 10 month point, guys!

Crying out loud if we book another onboard, I cannot book something so far in advance -- the almost 2 year long wait is killing me!!!
