considering the cost of our cruise, i'm limiting us to a few 'experiences' at wdw/dlr. i've booked for 50s diner, the candlelight processional (lunch at via napoli since dinner is rather expensive) and the neverland 5k at dlr. i want to the do the walk in walt's footsteps tour at dlr and i'm working on that being over $100 per person i won't say how much we spent on our last trip but it's probably coming close to that this time

Cinderella's Royal Table was going to be Erin's treat, but I decided I'd rather do something special on the cruise for everyone, it's my hope to get a cabana on Castaway Cay and it's cheaper than a dinner in CRT and a much better value.
She didn't know about it so she will be thrilled with 1900 Pare Fare...plus, her aunt and uncle are treating her to BBB that afternoon for her birthday!!!

OK, I admit it! I'm a little nuts....I just waved the Fantasy out to sea as she left Port Canaveral. I waved to the officer on the wing bridge with his binoculars, I waved to the passengers manning the rails....I even waved to the two crewmen hanging out the stern.

Soooooooon...say 21 weeks...someone will be waving US out!!!!!

What about a lovely photographic session with her favourite character and have the photographs enlarged and framed for her? I think that would be nice. I wish I could go and get all dolled up at BBB

I went to a staff reunion dinner last night and came home just before midnight, like a good Princess ought to So I slept in this morning until after 8am and pottered about for a bit then DD and I went to the markets to use her gift voucher for a book shop she won at the library, bought some little gifts for Wally and bought groceries for the school week. This afternoon I pottered in the vegetable garden, tried to tidy up the house (a losing battle) and started reading the Sunday paper. I have to go back to the supermarket tomorrow to buy some treats for our home stay student who arrives on Tuesday. I couldn't find anything for her as a farewell gift (for when she leaves) so I'm giving her packets of tim-tams, cherry ripes and some other lollies.

Ok, I am making cole slaw also. Now the thing about that is , I have not made this in years...i'm talking probably around 20...my mother always made it and you know how that goes, never tastes as good. So today I thought I will give it a shot and make some, which I did...

I swear we are on the same wave..... we are going to do kabobs and corn on the grill along with the cole slaw....

DH is going away camping in just over a week so I've made up some stews and spaghetti sauce for him to take and heat up for when they're too tired from whatever it is they do on a boys only camping trip. Tonight I had some of the stew and the kids had left over spaghetti from the other night. It doesn't look like I'm working tomorrow so I will probably do a last minute frantic tidy up and make the house look relatively respectable for our visiting student. Our house is just so cluttered because of lack of storage space it's times like this I wish I could just chuck everything out and start afresh!

I don't normally have busy weekends, I try and keep them as boringly quiet as possible

Happy Monday....

This is really sad, when you have a few days off and you start counting your "work" days until you have them off.....13 days and counting..I am having a BBQ for Wally's birthday, just a few friends, so I took a couple of days to have time to clean and prepare....I am actually looking forward to being home and cleaning Now that is sad....


Have a good day

Hey, everyone, my Panama Canal cruise is trying to get a bunch of group brunches booked...sort of like we did. I told them of our experiences and one of our group called and this is the answer he received!


Originally Posted by davidls
Ok everyone, here is the scoop. Just got off the phone with DCL. A very nice, courteous, and I might add patient CM was very helpful with my questions as I managed to stumble around with my questions to her.

First - The Group Palo Brunch - We all will need to link our ressies together for the group brunch, and only 1 of us needs to book the group Palo Brunch. She recommended booking the Group Brunch on-line before the cruise once our window opened up to be able to book on-line. She mentioned we will be only allowed to make just one Palo Brunch booking on-line. That's why she suggested making the group brunch on-line.

Second - As far as booking individual Palo Brunches she said we would be able to book as many individual brunches as we want once on board the ship.

And Third - The CM told me the private dining room should be available for a group brunch on board the Wonder. She wasn't sure why it was not available on the Fantasy, unless it was already being used.

I hope this helps. If we have any other questions, please let me know. I'll call again, and hopefully I can get the same nice CM who helped me this time!!!!


What this means I have no idea. Why would we be told something different?

I have heard this before about cast members and getting different answers.

So should we try and link and you can book when you reach your 120 days?

Not sure all who wanted to sign up, you and Dave, Sue and Me, Chuck and Mark and I know MaryAnn wanted in, but not sure about her husband, then I think Frank wanted in.

We need to get this straigtend out. We may have to break this down to different groups.
