If you want to, you can read all about the ordeal at diaryofashrinkingmom.blogspot.com There are 4 new posts describing everything that went on.
OH, MAN, LAURA! You've been through the ringer! So sorry that you had to go through that!

Also so bummed that we won't get to meet, but I'll try to keep remembering to check in on your blog!

Best to you!!!

Probably a breast pump, as we're leaving the little guy at home. Not looking forward to pumping on vacation, but I won't be ready to wean at 9 months old, either.

Laura, So sorry you have to leave us! But it is always better to be safe and precautious! It is good that you will still be cruising next year. Take care!!!

Probably not that unique, but for this, our 7th Disney Cruise, I will pack my newly purchased high quality fins and a mask to go along with the scuba certification I have just completed. I have found snorkeling to be one of my favorite activities on our cruises and this is taking it one step further. We will dive in St. Maarten and snorkel at Trunk Bay on St. John and at Castaway Cay.

Another more unique item: I just may be sporting a hand made Mickey Mouse/ Disney Cruise Line bow tie with my tux on formal night...

Hello Fellow Cruisers,
I have been busy the past few weeks, had surgery and now I'm home and on the mend.

1. For the Ward Family, I am so very sorry to read about your ordeal on the recent cruise, and even more sorry that you won't be on board with us , but I do wish you a speedy recovery and all the best on your continued road to health.

2. For the new folks that have recently joined the board, welcome!! I look forward to seeing your smiling faces at the Pink Ladies Party.

3. My most unusual item to pack? Door prizes for the Pink Ladies Party

Ok Gang,
I am working on the details of the Pink Party. I have counted 23 'yes' responses on the MickeyVeryMerryChristmas website, and several undecided ladies.

I am sharing with you the response from the Disney Rep that I am working with to put this event together, as to 'entice' the undecided group to change the box to a "yes"

"We can definitely arrange Private Bar Reception; you must have at least a minimum of 25 to the maximum of 40 per session. I can request the Disney Fantasy for this event 30 days prior to sail date.
Once it’s confirmed, you may send me names or reservation #’s of each participant.
A private event is scheduled time so the venue would be reserve just for your group, if you order any of the package bar, then there will be assigned bartender for that full hour"


The party is slated for Monday, December 16 at 1 pm. This is an "At Sea" day.

The bar selections are as follows (per Disney Rep)

Premium Bar: $13.25
($2.12 service charge included)
Vodka: Absolut, Smirnoff ~
Rum: Bacardi, Captain Morgan, Parrot Bay ~
Gin: Beefeater, Tangueray ~
Whiskey/Bourbon: Canadian Club, Seagrams VO, Jack Daniel ~
Tequila: Cuervo Gold ~
Cognac: Courvoisier VS, Hennessy VS ~
Wines: White/Santa Carolina Chardonnay Red/Santa Carolina Merlot & Brancott Pinot Noir; Blush/Beringer White Zinfandel ~
Beer: Budweiser, Bud Light, Corona, Heineken,
Michelob Ultra, Samuel Adams, Newcastle Brown

If you are traveling with any other ladies who would like to join the fun, please invite them along too ! Disney will allow up to
40 for a private event so lets fill the Oh La La Lounge with fun and friendship!

[QUOTE=Magic25;48781057]Hi there! Sorry I haven't been as responsive as I should be! Please count me as well for helping with the pink ladies soiree. I originally volunteered to help with supplying party favors and table decor. I'm so glad you were able to get the cost nailed down in terms of $/person.
Please count me as help and I look forward to toasting glasses with this lively group! (Or 5 or 6, to your point!)

I sure will! thank you for your very generous offer to help with the party! We are going to have a BLAST on this Cruise !

Hi John. There is a really bad thunderstorm going on right now here where I live, so my computer is acting kind of funky. Once this passes I can update the website. I did see that you had answered no to the pink ladies gathering on the join us form, so that is why your wife is not listed there.

Christy~Your information will be updated too.

If something is incorrect on the site for anyone please let me know and it will be fixed! Don't want anyone missing out on anything!!!!!! Woo Hoo

So looking forward to the Pink Ladies Party! While shopping the other day I found accessories for my daughters and myself. They have already been put aside to pack. Thanks for taking care this for all of us.

The most unusual item we will bring will be clothes line clips to hang our wet swim suits on the clothesline in the bathroom. This was an FE gift that we got on one of our previous cruises and it definitely helps to dry our suits faster!

I enjoy making 'cruise friends', so this party is perfect for me.
I am having a great time making little door prizes for all the ladies, this will be a great afternoon gathering!
