Hello!
Sorry for the delay in answering, my ability to get on the internet varies from time to time.
I have thought quite a bit about the Pink N' Drinkin' Party, and I have even started working on favors
so far I think the best time would be Monday early afternoon 1 to 3pm. We will meet in the La Piazza or in the OLL if they will open early for us. I will check with the guest service desk as soon as our family is able to embark to make my requests.
(I am such a Mouse groupie at heart, my family has to talk me out of arriving at 4 am and camping out at Port Canaveral to the be first one in the parking lot when they open...truth be told, my secret lifelong dream is to join the DVC and either sail or stay on a property twice a year.. maybe if I keep on believing as Cinderella says ...)
Anyway, once I score the lounge space, I will deliver invitations to the "Pink Ladies" who will be participating, with the details and my cabin number to RSVP. I have a couple fun things planned for the group, and I am sure we will have a wonderful time.
I will speak with the bar staff and see if a champagne or wine tasting would be a possibility, and I will make arrangements for any specialty drinks they can offer us, and prices for them will be listed on the invitation before hand. There will be no cash handled, just come ready for a good time and bring your key to the world card with you if you choose to order any drinks or participate in a tasting (if they will offer us one) during the party. Oh, and wear pink !! (boas and tiars are optional, but super fun to wear.. this IS a party after all..)

At this point we have 31 families so I am not sure we will have many more join cause the prices have gotten so high. We haven't had anyone join since the beginning of Feb so this might be it.
I am still walking with a cane ( over a year now after surgery, didnt expect it to take this long to heal) so I suppose "proximity" is a vocabulary staple for me these days. I recall how L O N G those corridors are, and I have never been on one of the newer ships, so I envision them to be even longer.
This sounds like a perfect game for my nephews, come to think of it ... Secret Stateroom Santas.
I am thinking of two different gifts, for different days. does it matter what day we deliver them?

Hello Christina,
Would you like to come help me decorate before the party???

I am getting so excited for the party cause u have party stuff... I sent you a message with some helpful info I have to share with you. I honestly think this needs prepped before arriving at the port as Disney's schedule is in place and maybe they would be able to fit us in better with contacting them a head of time. PLUS you need to relax on boarding day girl and come enjoy a drink at Sailaway Party. If your prepping and all that , you can't come have a Bon Voyage with us...love that drink!!!! .Like I said I will PM you that info in the next 2 days or so. I agree Monday better then Sunday(as it's formal night). 1-3 probably good too as I imagine anyone with girl youngins needs the time before dinner to get hair done and such. I know I have 2 heads of non compliant hair. I always have my vision but sometimes the hair has it's own Thanks so much for planning all this. Something special for us ladies that probably do all the planning for our vacations!!

Thank you Michelle for all your very helpful tips too! I think we ALL deserve some time to ourselves too, after all the planning, packing, organizing, and preparation for this trip. My girls are grown now but I have had countless battles with long curly hair, I totally know how you feel. So lets really kick back and enjoy the little things .... A few hours away from unruly heads of hair, sunblock applications, hunts for for lost key-to-the-world cards, sandals, and toys... and no waiting in buffet lines, elevator lines, photo-op lines, and laundry room dryer lines I am really enjoying making the plans too, this is fun and theraputic for me!

Thank you Robin, I appreciate it! I know we can get in the La Piazza (they open daily at noon) but I really want OLL for our Pink-Pallooza '13, much better venue for the theme !!
I should have most everything ready before we sail, but I am going to decorate a little too.... ok, yah you got me, "decorating" is code word for "trying the speciality drinks as soon as the bar opens" so come on and 'decorate' with me LOL !!!

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!
I'll be glad to give any advice I can!

Technically this will be my 14th Disney Cruise, but a few of those were B2B cruises so they kinda count as one

There will be 16 of us traveling together, both friends and family. From my grandparents all the way to the 20 month old. We've never traveled with that large of a group before! The most we've traveled with is 7 so this should be an interesting experience for us! But I'm really looking forward to it.

I got some Mickey Mail today! Just a planning guide for this cruise, but I was excited when I saw something from the cruise line.. This means we are getting a little bit closer if they are sending out cruise reminders....(as if I could forget) LOL

Hello everyone!
I wanted to mention a really neat show on GAC Living country channel (Direct TV) called "My Yard goes Disney". My husband and I have been watching this for the past week and it's a great show for any HGTV / Disney fans out there. They pick unique families, remodel back yards 100% Disney style!. Last one was a rendition of Castaway Cay, and we could literally taste the Conch Coolers waiting for us in a hammock !!

Wow wish we had that on TV here in the UK - I'm in for a Conch Cooler any day.
