Des, I'm wondering if we can plan a pre-cruise DIS meet before this cruise.

I know its two years away, but its a thought.

(and you know I have those sometimes)

Lauragar AKA, you stalker.
I want to and both - Don't tell Rachelle and Lauragar to the cruise. Glad ya'll could join us. This is going to be fun counting down the days until we set sail on the Fantasy!!!
A pre-cruise DIS meet before the cruise sounds like fun. What does everyone else think??? DW and I will be doing our ususal thing before the cruise. Since we live only about 1 1/2 hour away from Walt Disney World we like to drive over and stay at one of the resorts before the cruise. Then on the day of the cruise we drive over to the port. That way we have over half of our drive to the port behind us.

Sorry can't do a pre cruise meet as we live in Canada, and it is a surprise. But I am very interested in a onboard meet! This will be our first 7 night cruise, and I am interested in any must do activities that we would not have found on our last 4 night Dream cruise. Also my son ( will be 11 ) want to see ruins or a pyramid of some sort - does any one have any suggestions? Thanks

Fish Extender

Also very interested in doing a fish extender gift exchange as my wife and kids enjoyed our last one. But I am aware it is pretty early to start planning that

An onboard meet sounds like it might be a better idea for everyone. We could meet some where around Minnie in the atrium. The last cruise DW and I went on this past September on the Dream, someone in our group made a badge the same size as our lanyard that you put your KTTW card in. That way you could print your own badge out at home putting your names on it, and after you got to port and received your lanyard and KTTW card you put them in your lanyard and turn it around so the badge shows and everyone could tell you belonged with the group.

Surprise Rachelle

Sorry to change the subject. But I wanted to put in writing to Rachelle who will read this approx 2 years from now ( after I let her know about the cruise and my communications on disboards) that I am sorry that I kept the cruise a secret from her. I know that you will probably 'kill' me for not telling you about this cruise, but oh well, I wanted to surprise you and our children! Hopefully I have kept this secret until the day before our cruise

I would love to surprise my DW like you are doing..............but if I WAS able to pull it off, I more then likely would be walking funny during the cruise!!!

This will be cruise #4 for us. We celebrated our 5-year anniversary on the Magic, and our 10-year anniversary on the Dream doing B2B. I refused to get off the Dream without having another cruise booked. We are looking forward to seeing all the upgrades/changes on the Fantasy!

This cruise will be our 6th and we will be GOLD for this one!!! We did a back2back on the Dream as well - in September this year. When did you do your back2back?

Like you, DW and I are looking forward to seeing the differences between the Dream and the Fantasy. We are doing an Eastern Caribbean cruise in December 2012 on the Fantasy, so we will get to see the differences then. But this will be our first Western Caribbean cruise. Why we haven't done one sooner is beyond me!!! We wanted to do the Eastern Caribbean cruise in December 2012 because one of the stops is San Juan, P.R. Should be allot of fun!!!

Again welcome, and glad you are sailing with us!

(I didn't get overly excited - did I?)

Hope everyone has a great day today!!!

We sailed September 8th-15th. We loved the B2B experience - it was great to not feel rushed to do everything on the first cruise because we knew we'd have a second chance at everything. We also loved 2 stops at CC. We could have done without either stop at Nassau.

We're really looking forward to the Western itinerary. Looks like there will be some worthwhile stops (unlike Nassau.)

Yes I know what you mean about feeling rushed to try and see and do everything in one cruise. We too enjoyed that feeling of knowing we still had time to see and do certain things on board the ship. We did our back2back Sept. 11th - the 18th. Looks like we were on board at the same time for part of the back2backs!!! Small world. (Ok, ok, ok, ok, you don't have to start singing It's A Small World After All - like I just did!!!)
