This will be my 8th cruise unless i sneak another one in somewhere between now & then...i just got off the Wonder in Jan & already have another booked for Nov 3 this year - i LOVE LOVE LOVE sailing and only with Disney!!!

I have a hubby - but he won't sail....DS has been my sailing buddy since our first cruise in 2005 but he's away at college, so not sure if his schedule will allow him to be gone a full week next year. Also wanted my daughter and her little guy (& maybe her husband) to join us., but they're not sure if they want to take him yet - he just turned one....

Anyway...there's the scoop on our group. I am booked in 10668 or something to that effect anyway....and looking forward to meeting you all!!!
Hello neighbor! We're in 10664!!!!

It's official! I have moved our dummy date to this cruise. We will be celebrating our actual 25th Wedding anniversary onboard the Fantasy! It will be DH (Tom), myself (Lynn), and DD17 at the time of cruise (Ashleigh).
We have a 4 nighter scheduled for this fall on the Dream and are hoping to sneak in one more so that by the time we board the Fantasy we will be Gold status! As our right now, we have 3 cruises under our belt, all Disney, 2 on the Wonder and 1 on the Dream. I'd like to get on in on the Magic so that once I board the Dream, I will have sailed them all. I think that would be so Cool!!! At least I have plenty of time to try to accomplish my goal!!

We did that - took a 3-night Dream (cruise #5) so that when we board the Fantasy in June, we'll be Gold. Have cruises booked to #9, but our 10th is a dummy date. When we board the Fantasy in June, we'll have been in all 4 ships also!!!

Fun "club" to be in

Hi, Everyone! Looking forward to getting to know everyone between now and cruise time next year!
See my situation is that it is pretty much impossible for us to cruise in the summer due to sheer cost and hubby getting time off. He did manage to get a week off this summer but by the time we know which we he will get the price are just too cost prohibitive for us to cruise. What we would have to pay for a cruise this summer would be the price of the next two cruises we are taking combined. He can get off very easily during the rest of the year but we have a daughter is HS. She is allowed to miss up to 5 days excused and we are not afraid to have her miss. She missed 4 days last fall and still pulled her 4.0!! We are so proud! She worked to do it, but she knew what it would entail and she loves DCL & WDW as much as her mommy . We work around the school calendar to try to pick the week where she misses the least amount of school but due to my medical issues we needed to build extra travel time into our schedule. I had two back surgeries 4 months apart (one in late 2010 & one in early 2011) Well the one in early 2011 didn't go so well and I now have permanent damage. (and because of this I need to know where my cabin is so I can't book the cheaper GTY cabins ) So travel is always going to be more complicated for us now. Thank goodness my parents have a second home in Melbourne, FL which is 30ish minutes from PC!! So we have somewhere to stay before our cruise for free. YAY! And they don't rent the house and are only down there for Jan/feb/march. We tend to cruise in the fall. Ideally, I like to come in 2 nights before my cruise to give my body time to rest since travel is so hard on me. I feel like that will give me the best chance at being able to enjoy my cruise to the fullest of *my* ability. Well anyway, I think I've probably bored you all too much. I picked out our cabin. I need to make sure we are close to the elevators as I just cannot navigate stairs. I can do them once for the muster drill but not on a regular basis, oh no! But, I'm not sure I've picked the right one. Decisions, Decisions!!!

Well technically, she will be a freshman in college, but she is still 17 so she will still be eligible for VIBE. She started kindergarten when she was 4. She has a late birthday and that's how our school system's dates worked here... She's always been on the young end in her class. But it is what it is. She's not going to go away to college her first year (probably two), she's not ready and we've discussed the financial side with her. But anyway, she's excited to get to enjoy VIBE one last time on that cruise as she knows that will be her last time in the club so I'm sure she will cherish it. She is actually planning on doing dual enrollment her senior year. First semester she will attend high school part-time and second semester she will attend hight school part-time and take college courses as well. So she is pretty excited about all of next year's changes!

Just Booked!!

Hi everyone. I'm Tammy and will be cruising with my daughter Rachel. This will be our 3rd Disney cruise. We cruised on the Magic in Oct. 2007 and the Dream in June 2011. So once we cruise on the Fantasy, we will have sailed on 3 out of 4 of the Disney ships. Really excited about cruising again!!

Hi Everyone! I have another person to add. My Aunt has decided to join my DD and myself on this cruise. She will be staying with us in our stateroom. While she has cruised on Carnival in the past, she has never been on a Disney Cruise. I am so excited to be able to introduce her to Disney Cruising. Maybe I can even get her to become a DISer!
