Just for comparison purposes, our flights from London to Orlando cost us the equivalent of $775 each and that's what we paid last August.

I dread to think what the cost is now

Just bought all the stuff I need to get all the adult FEs prepared!!! I'm so excited because I just came up with my brilliant idea this morning. I don't think anyone has done this idea before.

BTW, does kids' FEs have to be Disney related? I've come up with several ideas, but not liking any of them except for this non-Disney idea that I got last week and that my two daughters love. It is more Universal Studios related. Boys and girls would equally love, I think.

Anyone with Concierge or Platinum level want to reserve a cabana on Castaway Cay for us and we will pay for it? Or is this a bad idea and a rude thing to do?

Hi Thuy
I know my girls wont care if what they receive is NON disney. They just love getting surprises!! Now you have me intrigued as to what the FE gift will be. Something we have not seen done before, Hmmm....Cant wait! LOL

I am not concierge, so I cant help ya there. Maybe one day I will splurge

BTW, my cabin's veranda is directly over yours. I will try to keep Sophie from yelling down to your daughters to come out and play.

I too an intrigued what u are coming up with Although I wouldn't make something with Shrek on it as it is a Disney Cruise. I don't think it needs to scream Disney but probably not carry another companies characters.


BTW --I am sure to remember Melia's name ....I hope people pronounce it right and don't butcher it like they do my Nelia.

I think whatever you do will be fantastic! And as much as I would love to help you get a cabana - we arent concierge/platinum ...

good luck!

Welcome Sarah!!! I might ask you some questions later about how it will be travelling with a young'un. My cousin (who thought about coming on this cruise) is pregnant and due in August. So this cruise is out, but she is considering joining us in 2014...when the baby will be 1+. Might pick your brain for her!

My kids for sure don't care what they get -- evidenced by the fun they had with the trinkets the dentist gave them the other day.

Although would love to help with the concierge bit, that's not in the cards unless we cruise without four kiddos in tow......
Good luck though!


Hope everyone is doing well! It's snowing again here --one last brush with winter, I hope!!!

And we will try not to do anything too "inappropriate" out in the open part of our verandah, but can't make any guarantees about the covered part. JK.

I'm not holding my breath though. Most people try to pronounce it like the last part of "Amelia". Oh well.

You can't take *any* food off the ship, including the gingerbread houses. There's an outrageous fine for taking food off of the ship. My boys had no problem eating it up before we left, though!

Yay, we are in the 8 month count down now!

We are flexible with FE gifts--whatever you decide to do is fine with me. My boys (ages 6 and 8) had the most fun with the exchange. Part of the fun was walking the ship, finding the rooms and seeing them gift their new friends. I've not decided on our FE gifts yet. Last time we did personalized beach bags that seemed to be a big hit. We also did Cars activity cases and Star Wars sets for the kids.
