3 weeks until I spring the cruise on my wife! Naturally, something had to go wrong. The Disney luggage piece I was getting her is backordered....until June. So I'm now open to alternate surprise methods and/or places to find a single piece of adult Disney Luggage.

Thanks!

Hey DynamicDisneyDuo! Your DW is so lucky she will be on !! That really sucks though that your luggage is backordered... Have you checked out some of the ideas on this section of the Disboards?
http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=105
There are so many creative people over there... how about an amazing bottle of wine with a label that announces the cruise?
Best of luck what ever you do to surprise her I think that is awesome!

Gosh, wish my dh was like you.. I wish there was a Like button here..That stinks about the backorder. Do you have a Disney store near you? Maybe buy a cheap pair of sunglasses, Disney beach towel with a calendar of the date and circle the cruise.. I'm not very creative- sorry..

I know a friend of mine from High school wrote on her FB that her husband surprise not only her, but their daughter with different princess clues (scavenger hunt), placing them around the house and when they found the last clue, it was a calendar with all the princess' on it.. they opened it up from what the note said and had a circle of when they are going to Disneyland..that was their Christmas gift.. I thought how clever- of course my dh would never think of stuff like that..

Agreed! I wish for a like button too! ... whatever you decide to do she will be thrilled!! Maybe you can hold on to the luggage and make it part of a "6 months until our special holiday" surprise... who knows it might just be the perfect way to keep the anticpation high as we get closer!

the fish extenders are so much fun your kids are going to love it Prince Evan loved getting back to the cabin everyday to see what goodies he had, he also loved delivering them. I am not that crafty but that was my do something you never done before, so last year for our Dream cruise, Evan and I made our own FE which I will post later it came out cute a bit to big but it worked and it was a fun project to do with him and saved lots of money! My son started calling me a crafty girl! If you want to purchase one I think you can get them from ebay and esty!

For those who aren't on the FB page yet, I was able to find a substitute bag to get my DW. So barring any complications, I shall carry forward with my surprise plan. Now I have to figure out an excuse to be recording it.

Hi! We have been booked on this cruise for a while but I couldn't bring myself to start thinking about it yet. But with all the news about the Fantasy, it is time to count down!

We are a family of four. DS will be 10 and DS 13 almost 14 when we cruise. We sailed on the Magic in August 2011 in the Med and absolutely loved it. We love to cruise and are excited to try Disney in the Caribbean as Europe is a different kind of vacation.

Looking forward to learning about the ship, etc!

We leave for a Princess cruise Apr 7. We enjoyed Princess 2 years ago but I'm not sure how we will feel about it after experiencing DCL, especially the split bathrooms in the cabin which is great with DD who is primping more and more.

Wow, I watched the youtube of the Fantasy rolling into Port Canaveral & had chills when they played the horn. Just Awesome!

DynamicDisneyDuo...So, glad your suprise is rolling forward...your wife is going to be so happy! Defitely post her reaction!

West & East...welcome to our group! So jealous that you'll be cruising in the next month. Make sure you let us know how your Princess cruise goes!

FE's...we bought ours on ebay from the Disser who makes them (would have to look her up). So many combos to choose from & it turned out beautiful! We also bought personalized pillow cases that we took to guest services to have them autographed...very nice momento. Kimberly...I'm in awe of anyone who can make their own! When we did the FE's on the Dream cruise last year it was neat to see all the different styles of them when we made our deliveries. I really like the duct tape one that someone posted on the cruise boards...very creative people on these boards! Yes, we all had a great time with the FE's...from making the deliveries ourself to the endless surprises every night when we made it back to our cabin. Can't wait to have them next year...I will be nice to have them spread out over 7 days!

Looking forward to more glimpes of the Fantasy in the next month!

Hey I should have mentioned that when I made my FE there was no sewing machine involved no needle or thread either, but I made it happen! with lots of fabric glue, hot glue, if it was a glue I used it lol.

My wife uses Mighty Mend-It. Works like a charm.
