Whoa!!! That sounds AWESOME!!!! Sleep under a rocket?!?! And I thought sleeping at COSI in Columbus (OH) was cool when I was a Girl Scout many years ago was cool!! That's nothing compared to that!!!

DD is 5 1/2 so I'm thinking maybe 2 more years until she'd appreciate it. Maybe not - she might be ready & think it was super cool!!!

These were the directions added with the names of people signed up on the last cruise, but I've updated for our cruise (we had 30 rooms signed up for a 5 night cruise so it needed to get to 6 rooms a day).

Disney Cruise Line –Western Caribbean Cruise
October 12-19, 2013
Rules:
Write your name / room number on this
Door magnet (then cross same off the list below) then stick it on a fellow DIS’ers door. Remember to move this quickly, it needs to see appx 6 rooms per day to stay on track for it’s roaming adventure!!!
Let’s see how many rooms the Gnome can roam
Please return magnet to room 10664 on the last night of the cruise

Here was our finished project for the last cruise. I have to change the current one from word to a jpg then post what I am working on so this will have to do for now

What's a roaming gnome?

The roaming gnome is a magnet with a Mickey gnome on it. You sign up to do it. The magnet then gets passed around from room to room and every room signs it. There is a list with all the rooms attached as well as pens, so you know where to send it to next! It's a lot of fun!

Based on you're port arrival time and online check in time.

We'd be happy to help the gnome roam through Fantasy; count us in. We are in stateroom 9620.

Welcome!!! We are on the same deck, Stateroom#6146. Our stateroom is near the Aft elevators. My DD & I have been on 2 other Disney cruises, and will be my Aunt's first Disney cruise.

Hello,

We took our 6th DCL cruise during the last week of August and got off the ship September 1. We were on the Fantasy and booked a dummy cruise to get the OBC and the discounted rate. We have decided on taking this cruise. It will be Me, DW, DS and DD, who will just about be 12 (they are twins) when we board the ship next year.

It will be our 7th cruise but only our second Western excursion (1st one ever). With our sailing on the Fantasy in August we have been on all four ships. The Fantasy was unbelievable. We had so much fun.

We are from NY (Long Island actually) and are DVC members with our next visit to WDW only 3 weeks away.

We are staying in a 5A and will be in stateroom 10534 or 36. Still waiting for exact confirmation from our great travel agent. We have stayed in these cabins (34 on Dream and 36 on Fantasy) and the location on the ship and stateroom are great.

We would be in on the FE and Gnome thing. Finally participated in our first FE this past cruise and never heard of the roaming gnome but it sounds fun.

Lastly, we most likely will be flying in late on Friday, 12th, and will probably stay at the MCO Hyatt. We have stayed their pre-cruise about four times (other times stayed in WDW) and take the bus over bright and early.

WELCOME to you and your family! I will be sailing with my DD and Aunt. My DD and I have been on the Magic and the Dream and this will be our first time on the Fantasy. This will be my Aunt's 1st Disney cruise although she has cruised on Carnival. Maybe some day I will also sail on the Wonder (one can dream). We are so excited about our cruise. Can't wait to see the differences between the Dream and the Fantasy. We will be driving from Louisiana and probably staying at the Radisson at the Port. Would love to try the MCO Hyatt one day if we decide to fly instead of drive.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
