Our Disney and other cruises:

3 night 2000 April 16-19 Star Cruises from Hong Kong, Super Star Leo, to Danang VietNam
3 night 2006 Aug. 31-Sept. 3 Wonder, Bahamian
7 night 2011 Oct 9-16 Wonder, Mexican Riviera
5 night 2012 Aug. 5-10 Magic, Canada/New England Coast
7 night 2012 Oct. 20-27 Fantasy, Eastern Caribbean
3 night 2013 May 2-5 Dream, Bahamian

7 night 2013 Oct. Fantasy, Eastern Caribbean ??

7 night 2014 Oct. 11-18 Magic, Southern Caribbean
It's nice to have you join us, Dorinda and George! We've been on the Magic and the Dream so after Fantasy we're still missing the Wonder. We've done a lot of cruising with other cruise lines and currently have 2 others booked! This one will be the best, though!
I don't want summer to fly by too fast; otherwise, I'd say I can hardly wait

I would like to do brunch around the 10:30 am time...what is everyone else's feelings on this time? I don't care which sea day 1st or 2nd.


anyway, still home right now, our water heater went out!! $$$$ just what I don't need right now...so they are installing the new one now, then I will head to work this afternoon.

have a good one

I'm happy to go with whatever suits everyone else. I can't book until September anyway, so there's plenty of time to work it out

I'm good with that time, too.

It's funny, when I was updating the roll call it is amazing to see how many people signed up and never came back to the thread to post. Makes you wonder how many are still cruising with us.

Same goes for the FE, I have no idea who more than half of the people who signed up are.
We had the same thing on our last cruise, though. It must just be the way people are these days

I am staying with my company, I will still need to come up here every other month for 2 weeks for work but that is ok. I keep my job and salary which would have been cut dramatically if I left. Plus we are going through major layoffs again. So figured stick with the job as long as I can since the severance packages are quite hefty.
Hope everything goes well for you both. Do you have any pictures of your old house that you sold? It sounded lovely.

Question Dining suggestions? Must dos?

We've booked a week at Old Key West starting the last weekend in Sept. We're plan on purchasing the Dining Plan. Does anyone have any suggestions for places we should really try to reserve?

Depends on what you like and where you will be. Are you looking for strictly in the parks or are the resorts on your list.

Magic Kingdom: We really enjoyed Be our guest for lunch and we like Tony's town sq for dinner.

Hollywood Studios: We like Mama Melrose, and get the Fantasmic package if you can. We also like 50's primtime

Animal Kingdom: Yak and Yeti

EPCOT: to be honest, most of our meals were just OK, so I would be hard pressed to recommend anything.

Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorites and I enjoy whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge. I hear lots of good things about Ohana at the Polynesian (we haven't tried it yet).

You will probably get a variety of responses from everyone since tastes and interests are so different.

I thought that many many post's back someone had said they would be in charge, however, I don't know who that was....or I could have just dreamt that??

Well Sue and I have picked what excursion we want to do....I don't think we are going to do anything at Costa Maya, its such a short time, most likely will get off the ship and do a little site seeing in the area, but no excursions.., we are going to do the Catamaran in Cozumel and if we make Grand Cayman, I want to go to Hell.... just sayin!!! but really I want to mail a few post cards from there.

I have also been looking into Limo's I have a few priced out, will call them in a few months to book.
Going to pay the rest of the cruise late July and that's about it.....

Getting closer

later

We went to hell and got out alive....

I think grand cayman we will do a catamaran, we usually don't do them but it's been a while. Mark will do one of the cooking classes in Cozumel and I will do my customary get off the ship, buy a tee shirt and back to the ship.

what's the Limo for?

I remember someone saying they would do the FE too, but can't remember who. we have the list so there really isn't a lot to do with it unless the group gets big.

Thanks for your suggestions, Chuck. We've been to Yak & Yeti a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Tony's was good too. We're thinking about Le Cellier at EPCOT as we've heard good things about it. Since we like food it is so hard to narrow it down! Just wanted to get an idea as to what others enjoy--Angie

I want to go to Hell, too! Then again, I've had some classes where I have felt like I'm already there...

Limo is to transport us from MCO to Port and then from Port to MCO....otherwise it would be a very long walk....

Angie

We are staying at OKW in October for a few days...first time.
Well, not knowing what you like, but we have a few favorites.
MK--Be Our Guest....might be hard to get an ADR now, but doesn't hurt to try. We also like the Plaza.

DHS--we like Sci Fi and Brown Derby (2 cred). We like Mama Melrose's for lunch but not so much for dinner, 50's Primetime.

Epcot--the choices are endless.....Garden Grill, Marrakesh, Chef's du France, Via Napoli, Tutto Italia (2 cred?), Coral Reef...though it is up and down. We used to like Le Cellier, but the last few times have been less than wonderful.

AK--Yak & Yeti

Away from the parks we like Narcoossees at Grand Floridian (2 cred), Turf Club (at SSR, a hidden gem), Captain's Grille at Yacht Club, Kona Cafe at Polynesian, Grand Floridian Cafe at Grand Floridian, the Wave at Contemporary, 'Ohana at Poly, Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge
I don't know which of the Downtown Disney restaurants take the dining plan...

We are also looking at doing the cooking class in Cozumel. We did it a few years ago and it was a blast!!

Another step closer!!!
