Happy New year everyone I am Ellen, tigger2u's DW. We are so excited about this cruise and sailing on the new ship!!! When we cruised in 2006 on the Magic, we didn't really do any extra excursions, other than exploring the ports on our own, so we are really looking forward to taking part in some fun adventures!

We were also interested in joining a fish extenders group if anyone was organizing one, we have never done this before, but from what I've read here on the Dis, they look like fun!

It is 26 degrees here in Md, so it's nice to think about swaying in a hammock under a palm tree,drinking a konk cooler on Castaway Cay

Welcome aboard!

I am sure that the FE group will be started for this cruise. It is a really fun exercise and I am sure you love it.

It's a cool 70 degress here in Florida!

Hi All!

I'm jlamanna's DS-- got him started with the Disney cruising bug! Can't wait to cruise on the Fantasy: it will make all 4 ships for us as well, as we just did the MR on the Wonder (previously DD on the Dream and Western Carib on the Magic).

Can't wait to hear all about the Fantasy: I'll be interested in hearing what changes they've made since the Dream. I was a bit disappointed to see it doesn't look like they changed the adult pool: I like the adult pool on the Magic/Wonder better than the Dream.

I just booked this cruise a few days ago for myself, James, and our son Tyler and daughter Isabelle whom we call "Belle."

This will be our first time cruising. I know a lot about Disney World since I've been there several times, but don't know much about DCL, so I intend to read over the DCL TR's and pay extra special attention to Western Caribbean intineraries and future TR's of the Fantasy.

We will be celebrating Tyler's 9th birthday on the cruise. His actual birthday is January 1...my New Year's baby. Isabelle will be turning 2 a few weeks after we come home, so perhaps we'll just celebrate her birthday as well.


I look forward to meeting you all and learning how to plan every little tiny itty bitty detail of this trip.

Just call me Carrie. I don't know if there is a way to edit your username on here or not, I'm assuming not. But I haven't really been TyTy's Mommy in a while. He grew out of that nickname a while back.

Hello MorganR,
Welcome. I don't know if anyone has cruised before, but if not and as time goes by you will learn a lot from those who have cruised, especially the DCL. Just ask and you will get an answer.
Lynn and I were stationed at Chase Naval Air Station at Beeville, up the road from you all down there, when I was in the Navy. Loved it in that part of Texas.

Chris

So Excited!!

Hi All,

I'm planning our Jan. 5th cruise and can't wait!! I have been planning on going on the new Disney Fantasy ever since I heard about it!

I'm new to posting. What does DH, DW, DS, DD refer to? Does it mean Disney (family member)? Such as Disney Husband, Disney Son?

I'll be traveling with my husband and 16 year old daughter. It would be great if my daughter could "chat" with other kids going and have someone she would know when we got on board.

We've gone on two other Disney cruises and loved every minute of it!! I'll be counting down the days!!

Welcome mwillow4, and you have the abbreviations (DH, etc.) correct. As for your 16 year old daughter getting to know teens ahead of time, she could start her own thread, or just post here and hope other kids will pick up on it. Most kids like to have their own thread so they can be themselves and stay in better and easier contact with each other.

Chris

Good morning everyone!

This will be our 4th Disney cruise, and my kids have always enjoyed chatting with other kids their age.....they end up hanging out on the ship and its great! With a couple of kids, the correspondence continued long after the cruise had ended haha

I will have two 19 year olds and one 16 year old on this cruise so if anyone's teenage kids would like to chat with them, I think it would fun for all of them!

We have been on one Spring Break cruise and two Christmas cruises ....we participated in DIS group activities on the first two and did not on our last cruise in 2010. DDMorgan missed joining in on the fun, so I am all for joining any festivity and/or activity we decide to do as a group. I plan to spend ALL my time with DGS Jordan and want him to have as much fun as possible!!

Does anyone have any ideas about different things we can do? On our 2nd cruise, our 1st Christmas cruise.....we did SO MANY DIS activities, it exhausted and burned us out hence the "not participate" on cruise #3. I think 2 or 3 activities would be great and DDMorgan would love to help organize anything anybody might have in mind. She is great at that kind of thing and does a top notch job!!
