[QUOTE=MisterOJ;45702797]Hi y'all.

We've been booked on this cruise for a while, but haven't gotten around to posting on here.

In our group, it'll be me and my wife (we'll be in our 30s) and our daughters, who will be 9 and 7 at the time of the cruise. This will be our third DCL cruise - the other two were on the Wonder and Magic, so we are looking forward to trying out one of the bigger ships. (Although, to be honest, I am a little concerned about it being a little too big.)

Also, my parents will be going along as well.[/QUOTE

Anyway, I'm Cathy and DH is James (36 and 38) and my kids will be DD 14, DS 12, and DS 4 Last cruise was an 11 day on the Wonder in 2006, so I have been dying to get back on board! Wanted to wait until little DH was old enough to enjoy the kids club. We had an awesome DIS group on my last cruise, and cant wait to be part of a DIS group again!!
Hi Guys welcome aboard. This will be our 6th cruise with DCL (when we cruise), 2nd on the Western schedule which we just love. My DH John and I are on a Eastern this October so we are wrapped up on that planning right now.

MisterOJ having already been on the Dream you don't need to worry about the size of the ship. I think it is perfect for a 7 day cruise, lots to do and lots of places to spread out.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

We just got off 4 days on the Disney Dream & booked this cruise while onboard! Gotta love those onboard booking benefits!

It will be DH & I cruising. We will be a little late in celebrating our 12 yr anniversary of our Disneyland wedding that was Sept 12, 2000. This past cruise we were able to celebrate on Castaway Cay. Next year we can do our usual WDW celebration on our actual anniv date, then carry the celebration right onto the Fantasy.

sgc1107, I think your tee shirts/hats idea sounds great! Would make it really easy to find each other on board.

We will be decorating our cabin door with magnets, but usually don't do FE. I am interested in the Facebook page, too, even though I never seem to go on Facebook. Guess I've survived so many years without it that I find it kind of scary, but I think I could be OK with this type of group. You may have to educate me! Meanwhile, if any of you are visiting WDW and want to set up a meet we only live 45 min away and can usually be ready to go at a moment's notice!

I have to go get ready to go out tonight, so I'll have to wait till tomorrow to go set up my new countdown ticker. Well, maybe later tonight if we're not out too late!

Hi Vanessa. My son will be 16 months old! He was born on May 9th. He is named CJ too!! Cliff is his name but he is a Jr. so we have been calling him CJ. I'd love to hear your thoughts on cruising with a baby. Early dinner? Are you planning to book some nursery time?

My DD will be 9 next year too. She is super excited about the kids club. This is our first Disney cruise and the largest ship we have been on.

We are experienced cruisers but have never booked one this far out!
My parents booked the room next to use yesterday!!! I am super excited. They have been on one cruise before in 2008. My Father hates ships, crowds, water and sand....but he is going for my Mom.

We are one deck above you!

We were on the Dream last week. Different ship, but we had the same room on our cruise on the Dream that you have for this cruise on the Fantasy. The one directly mid-ship!

Wow! We have 8188 (parents are 8186). Is that the room you were in on the Dream?! Do you have photos of the balcony?

Did you feel a lot of vibration? Was it a long walk to the shows at the front of the ship? I guess it couldn't have been too bad if you booked another aft cabin.

Same floor? Aft? Just curious, I promise I'm not going to come knocking on your cabin door. I'm sooooo excited about having a balcony this trip. Normally we save the $$ for other things but we will have a toddler and expect to spend more time in the cabin.

Yes, we were in 8188. Would have booked it again if it were available. I'm sure we will be just as happy right above you. I do have pictures of the balcony and the cabin. If you want to see them, PM me your email & I'll send them to you that way. I'm not at all good at posting pics here so it takes me FOREVER to do it, that's why I'd rather email them. BTW, I really hope you DO knock on our door at some point, otherwise I'll have to come knock on yours!
