Since the Dream and Fantasy are 40% larger than the Magic and Wonder I was wandering about crowds for reboarding. Disney is an expert is would seem in crowd control and making sure that their lines are moving but since you have to go through the metal detector, sanitize your hands, have your kttwc swiped I was just curious about how long the lines at port might be?
We, Lynn and I, have been on the Dream twice. Never experienced any lines reboarding at any ports, including Castaway. Then again we do not wait to the last minute to reboard and that may be when lines may form. The process for boarding at the port has been improved so that the terminal is no longer crowded which was in violation of fire codes. A limited number of people are allowed in the terminal at 30 minute intervals. Once a group starts boarding then another group is allowed into the terminal. Your terminal entry and boarding time is chosen by you when you have completed your on-line cruise check-in. Hope this helps.

Nope no PM appeared on my account so who knows what happened there.? We live in Briargate. Hope the move is going smoothly, the rain this weekend won't help much. 118 days until we can start online check in!

Oh wow.....I know exactly where Briargate is We live near Dublin and Austin Bluffs now, but our new house is close to Woodmen, off Austin Bluffs.

Has anyone given any thought to a meet and greet yet? We decided not to participate in the FE gift exchange, but would love to meet and greet everyone!

Has anyone thought about excursions yet? since we have only done Western cruises, we have done just about all the excursions, so we have decided to just do the dolphin swim in Cozumel and we always always always do parasailing at Castaway Cay.....its our favorite!!

It's cloudy and cold here in Colorado Springs today ugh! How about in everyone else's part of the world?

Red face FE's

Since some of the previous posts talk about the fish extenders I thought I would volunteer to start the FE thread. I have never done the FE's before just as a warning. If nobody has any objections I will start the thread and post the link on here.

There is an FE thread on Facebook that might help you with ideas.

I looked at the March 16 Fantasy cruise since they have a link to their FE group. I think that they have made an excellent outline of how to start a FE thread. They ask for DisBoard name, cabin number if you know it, first names, ages, and gender is you are comfortable giving out that information, and any celebrations that you are celebrating on the cruise. They also give examples of what to do if you don't want to give your real name, they say to put gender and age so it would be male, 12. Is there anything they are missing?

Here is the link to our FE thread, I hope it is okay:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post44893130

If you want to participate head over to the FE thread, I need the first names of everyone in your party, ages, gender of the kids, stateroom number, any allergies, everybody's favorite Disney character. Also if you have multiple staterooms please clarify how many fish extenders your party will have.

So sorry to any doomsday prepers it looks like the earth will just be starting a new cycle. I thought about coachs design saying the Mayans were wrong after that news story.

Yes I am in favor of the rework. And thank you to Brackjr for the assistance. Is anyone in objection to using the reworked design for our shirts?

I will be posting a link some time in August to purchase your shirts. I want to have them all done and shipped prior to November, so you can pack them well in advance.

I think you should out the saying you have on the front ("We are here, so the calendar must have been wrong") On the back in big letters along with the persons last name on top like a jersey
I love designing things like clothes and such, so if u need any help i would love to help

Always love odd encounters .... having lunch at First Watch today and our waiter's girl friend works on the Disney Dream. She was onboard during our cruise in February and we recognized her from his photo.

Sorry for being gone so long. Just getting caught up on this thread. I also read that further Mayan digs discovered what seems to be refrences to cycle end and start instead of the end of the world. In light of this how about removing the reference to being here thus the calender must have been wrong, and in its place list the ports we will be visiting: Casamel, Costa Maya, Grand Caymen, and Castaway Cay. I tried to think of something relating to cycles but could not, thus the ports of call idea. Either way, Lynn and I are a go even if we stay with the rework.

Chris
