Hi everyone! Our family will be joining you on this cruise as well and we are SO EXCITED!!! Our kids will be 9 (DD), 7 (DS), 5 (DS) and 3 (DD) when we sail.

My husband and I sailed the Magic and Dream for our honeymoon and 1st anniversary over 10 years ago. I can't wait to take our kids for the 1st time! I am also new to the fish extenders, but we kids are looking forward to it! Where is the best place to buy a fish extender holder?

Crazy Storms!

We are watching the weather news up here in Rocky Mountain Country... and hoping everyone south of the border and the Eastern States are safe! Take care you all!

Welcome! This is exciting to see our numbers grow.

It was exciting to see the inside of the Fantasy. As someone mentioned the Peacock chandelier is beautiful I'm also excited to have my picture with Mademoiselle Minnie Mouse

We booked this cruise a week ago! It will be me and my mom (her first Disney cruise) and my kids will be DD (9) and DS (8). The kids and I have been on the Magic twice. So excited to see the Fantasy and to share DCL with my mom. This is the fourth and final time I've re-booked this cruise and boy, am I excited to be able to cruise on the Fantasy over Spring break.

Thanks! I am excited to share DCL with my mom. I know she will love it. 4 times was a bit excessive but life happens sometimes : ) This does seem like a great group.

Wow, our group is growing! Welcome to all the newbies to our group!

I've been eagerly watching all the new info & pics coming out on our Fanstasy--so very excited to see the drawings come to life! I've been walking around all week with the Mariah Carey "Fantasy" song buzzing thru my head! One year seems so far away at this point but I know it will be here before we know it!

For everyone celebrating anniversaries & birthdays onboard make sure you make a note of it on your reservation--they do something special in the dining room the night you choose to celebrate!

Now that we're getting closer, time to add my ticker!

Fox & Friends showed the drawings come to life Friday morning. It looks so cool. And I love the Mickey chairs.

Welcome Welcome...

O.k. quick question for those that have done the Disney cruises before. If The King and I decide we want to do the excursions, are we able to leave the young princess and young prince on board to play in the club or are they suppose to get off the ship with us?

oh and ETA: my mom might be joining us as well- along with my FIL and FIL's girlfriend.. Full house.. :-)

Yes, I think Animator's Palate was my favorite theme on the Dream--loved the chairs & the silverware! I like the new twist they're putting on the Fantasy where they will animate your own drawing & certify you as an official Disney Animator when your meal is done!

I thought you could leave your kids in the clubs when you went on excursions--I know I saw some reference to it somewhere on these boards but I always have a hard time finding info on the search engine. Hopefully someone in our group has done it firsthand! The most adventerous thing we did without the kiddos was the mixology class---fun stuff! We'll definitely do more of the tastings on the Fantasy! Four days on the Dream were way too rushed--looking forward to a little more downtime on our 7 day!

Kanga+2Roos I agree with you! 4 Days on the Dream was too short! After having done the Magic for a 7 day, we just felt we never did the Dream justice nor did we get everything done or tried that we wanted!
SaphyBelle ... as for leaving the kiddos in the clubs while we did an off ship excursion? We did do this, but it was in St Croix and all we did was walk down the end of the dock to town to do a little window shopping and watched a street parade while in full view of the ship...I am a little too "A-type" to go too far from my little angel . To be honest with you I don't think we even "asked" we just did it.!
How wonderful for you to have your whole "posse" along for the ride! We tried to get some family to come with us, but the timing just did not work for their kiddos and school and all...
I had not heard about that Animators Palette, my kiddo is huge into drawing and creating so this will definitley be an exciting supper for her! ON the Dream we loved talking with Crush at supper too, so we are hoping to be one of the "chosen" again... wish I would have had my camera to film it!
