Have fun! 10 days is way too long for me!! I don't even think I could handle 7 days!

Bought our airfare for the trip on Sunday, as soon as Jet Blue opened up their schedule! Can't wait!

My daughter told me she would rather not go on a 3 or 4 night cruise. It is way to short.

I love to cruise. It is a true vacation for me. No cooking, cleaning, etc.

We love longer cruises.

We are a family that likes to take a ton of small vacations rather than one long one. I "need" a vacation every 4 months or so, just got back from a 4 night trip to Disneyland and Southern California, anything over 5 nights and I start missing my animals at home too much. We had a 7 night cruise booked on the Magic for September but changed it to the 4 night in Jan since my girls wanted to go on the Dream.

Jet Blue doesn't fly from Dallas to MCO yet...I don't think anything is open for us yet.

I lied....just checked and Delta is open and not too bad, but I'm not ready to buy airfare just yet...but am paying off the cruise this week!!

This will be our first cruise ever!!! We can't wait...of course, we are still in triple digits for the countdown. DH says if I keep looking at cruise information I will be burned out before the cruise. He clearly doesn't know me too well because here I am...

I completely agree!! I'm glad to know there is a plce where I can discuss the cruise... I mean, I have to find something to do for the other 253 days before we set sail...

My packing lists are done and most of the kids' clothes are purchased...magnets are created, just need to print them out...cruise is almost paid off...excursions are picked out...

Lol you are excited!!! I haven't decided on excursions yet. Usually we don't do them...but I think the girls would like the sea lion encounter at Blue Lagoon. Depends on how much I save between now and then.

Just checked my Disney Premiere Visa rewards balance and in 2 months I have $341 worth of FREE money to spend on our cruise already!! Love the 90 days worth of 5% cash back on Disney, groceries, gas and restaurants!! We use the card for EVERYTHING and pay it off every month so no interest...just free cash!!! Everyone likes more money right?!! Not crazy about the 49 annual fee...but we've made that up already!

OMG...I just had a nightmare the other night about the cruise and had to share...woke up in a sweat!

We were on the boat, but in an outdoor stadium (??)...the people we were sitting next to were being rude to some other passengers so I went walking and saw a bunch of empty tables where food was being served. I went back to the stadium and told DH to bring the boys down to meet me, but we had all of our luggage with us (not sure why)...and the worst part was I FORGOT MY CAMERA!!! Very scary!!

I need a vacation fast!!

Lol...I hate scary vacation dreams!!! The no camera would kill me too!!!

I have dreams that I am at the beach, but can never get there....there is always something in my way and I never end up getting there!

So...I just checked airfare and it's $600 cheaper to fly back on Wednesday after the cruise rather than Sunday....so.....do I tag on a few extra days at Disney???? I was thinking about going in May...but this would save on airfare.....
