OK, the cut-off/closing date for the FE list will be Sunday February the 10th (2/10/13)

This should be plenty of time for everyone!

Had to move to May 3rd Cruise

Hey everyone!
We are no longer going on the April 6th cruise We had to move to the May 3rd cruise for various reasons. We were on the Fish Extender list so you will need to remove my family and my in-laws. Thanks and hope you all have a wonderful cruise!

Hi Everyone!

So excited to be able to connect with others before our cruise! I'll apologize up front for faux pas and posting errors ... it's been years since I've participated in a forum discussion group ... but I've just read through the 15 pages of this one ... so feeling like I (sort of) know everyone already!!

Our history ...

This cruise is to celebrate my fabulous 50th birthday with my 15 year old daughter and our close friends, who also love all things Disney! My family (also includes DH, DS21, and DS18) have been on two previous cruises on the Magic. Western Caribbean over Thanksgiving 2009, and Mediterranean Summer 2011. This cruise will be the first for our dear friends, but they are DVC members (Vero Beach). ***I need pointers on how to add all the cool links? photos? countdown buttons to my posts?***

Even though we've cruised twice before, since the kids were older, we have not participated in FE exchanges. It sounds like tons of fun and I'd love to join in for both families (as a surprise for our friends) ... just wondering how ya'll handle the different ages when deciding on gifts? Keep them age specific, then have something different for everyone? Or maybe just a family gift? What's the appropriate amount of money that's usually spent per family? Please give me your feedback. Again, I'm looking for a way to make our friends' first Disney cruise a really special one.

Regardless of whether we join in the FE ... would love to have the group get together on embarkation day for a photo and meet and greet. Any ideas? Need someone to organize?? I'd be happy to do my fair share!!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone! We are also from Marietta, GA ... it's always fun to meet new people, but also fun to have someone from home!

Now it's off to the gym, so that I'll be "Spring Break Ready" (according to DD!)
Lisa

So excited

Hey Everyone!
I guess I'm better late than never. My DH Ron, DS Evan(6), and DD Emily(4) and I (Susan), will be joining in on this cruise. We definitely want in on the FE fun!! Please add the Grant family to the list. We will be in cabin 9079. I am also proud to say we are from the Atlanta area...Canton to be exact. This will be our first Disney cruise, my DH and I have a lot of other cruises under our belts. The kiddos are still in the dark for now. I'm trying to delay the "are we there yet" type of questions for now.

Hi everyone I'm so excited about this cruise. I also will be celebrating my 50th birthday as well as my 20th wedding anniversary. I look forward to meeting new people. On this trip it will be my DH and myself. No children. Sorry not from Georgia but from Michigan. However one of my grand-sons was born there in Savannah. My Georgia peach. First time ever posting anything. I usually just read whatever anyone else to say. Not sure what this FE is, but I will opt out.

Welcome to all the new folks!

We just can't wait to get going on the cruise! I've already started a packing area in one of our closets to put all of the girls' dresses that we are taking. Since they are almost all spring/summer dresses, I figured they wouldn't need them much before we go.

All of the princess dresses have been cleaned, matching shoes are being found (since they were all packed away in different places), and we are trying to decide if we will need any more luggage. We are considering getting a better garment bag for our dress clothes, but I think that's all we will need.

I know that I am going to overpack and I've come to terms with that.

Thanks MissLiz!
Sorry for confusion on my part ... but on this cruise we will only be:

Me (aamsmom, AKA Lisa) and DD15 (Mallory). Stateroom 7564

plus our Dear Friends (let's call her SusieQ, AKA Susan) and DD15 (Abby). Stateroom 7566

Two separate families, two separate staterooms. Again, sorry for the confusion!

Spent most of the weekend "researching" (tee hee) FE's ... it looks like so much fun, and I think I've figured out that almost anything goes, so count all of us in! I'm surprising our friends with this ... so will be doing double duty before we go, but the girls will enjoy passing them out and they'll feel like seasoned cruisers on their first!

It's a rainy day ... maybe I'll do some more "research"?!! Have a great week!

Hi, we just booked this cruise. It will be myself, my husband, our 7 y/o son, and in a second cabin, my husbands parents. We're working on convincing our neighbors (my son's bff) to book this cruise also.

We originally were planning to go on the 12/29/12 Fantasy cruise, but my beautiful mother passed away that very morning. We had trip insurance, if anyone wonders, but is afraid to ask.

This is my son's spring break week so he won't have to miss any school.

I've done fe in the past. I think I'll wait until closer to the deadline to decide if I'm going to participate. I have a lot on my plate right now.

No worries, Lisa! So, it's just a girls' week. How fun is that?!

HappyPeach -- so sorry for your loss! I'm sure you have a lot on your mind right now. Welcome to the thread. Even with the unfortunate circumstances, we are happy to have you.

FE List Names

Hello All...

After looking over the FE list, could you please make sure we have everyone's first names on the list in case some of us (me!) are doing personalized gifts.

Thanks!

We would love to attend a group get together as neither of our other 2 cruises had one and it would be lovely to put a face to the names x
