Hi Dogan family! What are your names and are the twins boys/girls? This is our first DCL as well. I have a feeling that this is going to be our first of many!!

Welcome to the cruise!

Welcome Basak! You're going to LOVE the experience!! This is my daughter and my third Disney cruise, but first time participating in an FE. I'm almost as excited for all the new cruisers, as we are to be returning!! We LOVE DCL!

Feeling a little pressure to have something new and exciting for the "seasoned" FE folks, and double that pressure knowing there are other "Southern Moms" in the group too (we have a tendency to want to out-do each other) JUST KIDDING!

Now ... for those of you keeping track, this is finally my post number ten! Stand by for those teenage versions of princess costumes!!

I have found PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line books to be very useful! They contain lots of information needed.
I have purchased a few copies from them since 2008.
Here is a surprise for all of you! .................

I found a link to the full version of the latest book here:

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5vN...it?usp=sharing

If you like all of the information that it has, I would suggest buying a copy and reading it before our trip, this book is fabulous!

How many?

So, I had been going by Hoppin's xl spreadsheet linked in the sig, and the number of FE folk there is about 60 some. However, the list posted by MissLiz has way more people. Which number should I be working from?

Just want to make sure I am planning properly.

And we are from outside Seattle, if anyone wanted that info. :rain:

MissLiz is keeping roll call for the people on our cruise that have posted here in this thread.

I am keeping track of the FE list. It contains the people that are participating in the FE gift exchange.

You will work off my list for the FE.

Additionally ... I'd love to know where everyone is from. I don't mind going back through the thread and looking for the info, but don't want to create another "list"! Am I being OCD to ask to add this info to the roll call? Again, I'm willing to do the research ... or perhaps it could be part of our "check-in" as we get closer to April 6?!!

Let me know what y'all think!! We are seriously so excited!
Enjoy your weekend!
Lisa

Hey Lisa,

I can add location to the roll call list so we don't have to have more lists. I'll go back through the thread and fill in what has been said.

Liz

Thanks Liz! Didn't mean to add to your duties!? I'll be happy to go through and match locations. Not much into football (well, since the home team isn't playing It will give me something to do this afternoon!

Okay, I've gone through the thread to try to get everyone's locations. If you had one in your profile, but hadn't said anything in a post, I used that. If anything is incorrect, please let me know. Or if you would like to add yours, please let me know.

I'm going to play around with the list format because it's a little hard to read right now.

And remember, my list is just a list of people who have posted in the thread and said they were going to be on the cruise. My list is not the FE list.

As I was looking back through the thread, I realized that exactly one year ago tomorrow, we booked our cruise! I can't believe how quickly that year went by.

Thanks, Liz! Sooo appreciated!
I'm not sure I could stand it . . Waiting and anticipating for over a year?! We booked our first two cruises last minute. This one, four months prior and the wait is driving me nuts! Must stay busy!
BTW I had lunch on your side of town this past week . . Seed. Have you been? It was very good!
Thanks again!
