Hey fellow cruisers!

Just thought I'd let you know that I'm getting in trouble daily. I can't stop thinking, planning, and scheming over everything from FE gifts to princess dresses that my daughter will wear. I hope you all are having a great week!

I forgot to ask if any of you are running the Castaway Cay 5K. I'm excited to have a bib and medal that not many of my other friends have.

*GT bookings (can be IGT-for inside, OGT-for outside, or VGT-for Verandah) are guarantee bookings, usually offered after or around paid in full date for the cruise. They are typically well discounted -around opening day prices, but come with heavy restrictions: no name changes, no refunds, no requests for cabin change. You get what you get, at or above the category you choose. It's a way for DCL to push reservations for empty cabins. While less frequently seen in the past, since the Fantasy added so much capacity to DCL as a whole, there are frequent *GT offerings, particularly off season. We traveled the last week in August and saved several thousand dollars.

Thanks! Makes sense now ... we booked a similar rate for our Med cruise in 2011, what a GREAT value! Didn't realize that's what it was called?! Wish we could have taken advantage this time ... but our friends needed to have a plan in place! It's okay ... THIS time!

OMG! Me too!! I finally got off of Pinterest and the DISboards and took all my ideas to the TRIO of craft stores nearby ... It's walking distance between my JoAnn's, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby!! Today I spent about 2 1/2 hours wandering the isles ... comparing prices, TRYING to get inspired to create something completely new ... instead I just came away overwhelmed!!

Thankfully there's still time! But we are soooo excited to cruise with friends and to meet all of you!!

Me too......... I have so much to do, Alice has been ill, busy at work, doing a course and just being a mummy but playing with my new sewing machine and thinking about Fe gifts and outfits is sooooooo much more fun.

I am struggling with a dilema as well. My little Alice is now 12 but still very tiny and unable to choose what she wears herself. Can I still get away with the whole disney dress up like I did on our last cruise in 2011 or is she just too old :-(

I'm getting so excited as well. Been shopping and looking for just the right outfits. This is way to much fun. Approaching the 60 day mark. YES!

Don't lose heart that she's too old for dress up/princess/Disney ever!! I say as long as she's willing, then go for it! She's adorable!

My daughter is 15 and recently sent me Polyvore "collections" that a friend of hers created! (Polyvore is a website where you can create a "look", with links to actual products, that you may then purchase!) Suffice to say ... it's just a teenage version of what we all love about little girls!

DRAT ... SInce I've only made four posts (this will be five), DISboards won't let me include a link or picture? I might have to spam the thread to get up to ten?! Stand by!

Since I can't send personal messages either ... here's more info for the FE list:

aamsmom ... last name ... Schneiderman

SusieQ ... last name ... Christensen

and no, neither of us expect to see these long names personalized on ANYTHING! Promise you ... we know how that can be!
