Haha! I'm working on it...even though I'm mostly talking to myself! I'm probably in for the meet and greet, DD always wants to hit the Mickey pool first thing anyway, although not sure if DH and DS will come along. I may do Champagne Girls, just depends on when it is. I end up taking DD to see a lot of the characters, and we won't know those schedules until we sail. I may do the 5K too. I did it last time, although only after a lot of arm twisting from DH. I always run on vacation (on the deck), but wasn't sure I wanted to do a 5K. It was very hot, and I was exhausted after , but the extra strong pina colada in a coconut after seemed to pick me right up.

I figure we'll get a time set closer to the cruise...as much as I wish it would hurry we still 334 more days...not that I'm counting...lol

I finally figured out my avatar...testing my signature and countdown ticker. Hope it works!

Castaway Cay 5K

Sorry for all the extraneous posts. They were partly to help me get to 10 posts so that I could post the picture I wanted to share. Although now I believe I have managed to add an avatar and a ticker too...so I'm happy about that.

Ok, the Castaway Cay 5K...DH and I ran it in July. It was hot and humid, but I'm glad I did it, at least once. I'll probably let myself get talked into it again, but I'm not committing just yet. For anyone who has kids, we were able to drop ours off at Scuttles Cove on the way to the run. They had a blast! We didn't even know it existed before that. DH and I went and ran, got our medals (they are plastic, but they are still a Mickey head), and then bought a nice shirt to remember the occasion. They were for sale a the shop near the end of the run. I believe there is a timer at the finish if you care about your time, but there isn't anything very official about this 5K. I don't think there is a "winner"...everyone wins, just by participating. There were a few kids, probably tweens, or teens. Now that my DS is running cross country, we may consider taking him next year. If anyone has any questions, just let me know!

Nothing personal here, but IMO... I don't care for any of those at all.
I think #3 the characters look poorly photoshopped on. I wouldn't use this if we choose something like that. And I don't think the other 2 are 'very Disney' like. I feel like I might as well cruise Carnival. I want to see the Mickey icon or Mickey himself. but this is JMHO...I don't mean it as anything personal. I just want something that screams disney and IMO those don't. They're rather lacking that way... No hard feelings intended.

That's because design #3 was another Milliepie one that Triplefigs played with!!!! Nothing personal against Milliepie, but I don't see all the rave over her stuff. I suppose if you aren't creative, it's nice to have a place to go & get your stuff. That's how I feel about the FEs that can be ordered from Etsy or bought on ebay, too though. I'm also someone who doesn't purchase Halloween costumes, either; I prefer to make them because of the uniqueness. Just personal opinions. Different strokes for different folks.

No hard feelings at all - I wasn't suggesting we reuse those designs at all. Just wanted to post them to illustrate my point of what I felt was "cookie cutter" vs. original. That's all

Each group of cruisers has very different personalities. That's what makes the world go 'round, right?

My DD, Aunt & I decided we wanted a little more room so we upgraded from a 5D to a 4D, Stateroom 6144 (which happens to be right next to the 5D we were previously in). I know it's only a little more square footage but I think it will make it seem more roomy.

We stayed in a family stateroom on the Magic and it was nice to have a little extra space!

That's what I'm hoping for...a little extra space. And maybe a little extra storage space. No matter what....we will enjoy the cruise!

I started Christmas shopping. Yay me!! Love to shop online. Not finished yet though. Still need to get some Disney Gift Cards for my son and daughter-in-law for them to use on our Feb. 2013 WDW trip. They are taking my grandkids (5 & 2) on their first WDW trip and of course I have to go too (even though my DD & I just went in Sept.). Have a great day everyone!
