We bought our lime lime green Lei's today!!! One month from now I'm sitting in Animator's Palace having a great dinner with my family and friends.

The packing has begun in this house as well. Driving my husband nuts with trips to Costco every other day.

Has anyone come up with a place to meet at 3:00pm yet?

Many thanks,

Welcome to the Group!! I have heard that if you hang up a Fish Extender on your door ... and bring some items to share, that you can still experience the 'magic' of giving and receiving, without officially being on a list!? Please be sure to share with us the ages of your children, where you're from, and maybe even your stateroom number. I'm guessing there is extra Pixie dust floating around the ship!

We also bought our leis today!! aaannnddd we must be on the same dining rotation, because we will be in AP on the first night too! Second seating! Can't wait! Also ... we are leaving immediately after the girls get out of school on Friday. Long drive but worth it

Okay DISfriends!! We are officially FOUR weeks away from our FANTASY CRUISE! Our official meet up time and place will be at 3:00pm during Embarkation. We will meet on Deck 13 at Currents Bar (Even though it says adults only, during embarkation it is not restricted!) Be sure to wear your LIME GREEN Leis.

Also, I updated the DISmeetEARS with our the two newest DISfriends, and added our cruise info and dates ... again, I'd wait until we get closer to our sail date to print, but if you are more organized than I am ... here's the updated version!




Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi all! I'm well on my way with packing. DH has all his stuff sitting in the living room ready to go. Lol. Question: How did you find out your dinner rotation? Do you have to be a gold castaway member? I'm a silver one. I looked on the Disney cruise website but couldn't find any thing. Thanks in advance for an answer.

We asked our DCL representative when we made our reservation in December. it's something I learned about when we booked our first cruise (this is our third)! We wanted to be in a particular restaurant for 'Formal Night'. They were happy to oblige and gave us our dining rotation on the phone!

Our schedule for this trip (second seating):

4/6 sail away - casual AP
4/7 at sea - casual EG
4/8 at sea - formal RC
4/9 st. thomas - pirate AP
4/10 san juan - casual EG
4/11 at sea - semi formal RC
4/12 castaway cay - casual AP

The 'casual', 'semi-formal', 'formal', 'pirate' nights are usually predictable and make sense to me ... the sea days allow families more time to get ready, if they choose to dress up.

I booked online also and do not know my dining rotation. I just called DCL and they are not able to tell me my dining rotation, they say I will receive it when I receive my KTTW cards.
I know some people request to be in a certain dining room on formal night, that is how they know their rotation ahead of time. Not sure how the guarantee works.

Also, there will NOT be a character breakfast on this cruise!

Excited for our first ever Disney Cruise!

This will be our first Disney Cruise. Just DH and DW celebrating our 18 anniversary!! We have not received our room assignment yet. We paid in full at time of booking for a Verandah.

My DH loves to deep sea fish and we wonder if anyone else on the Fantasy April 6 sailing would be interested in a fishing port adventure?

Although you may not to get your dinner rotation. At this point you still can let them know what what restaurant you want to be in a specific night. They will try very hard to do that it this point. They will begein the tentative table assignments in the next week. I have never had a problem getting a sepcific restaurant on a specific night.

I also remember being told that on embarkation day, to go to the same lounge where you could get on Palo waiting list ... and make the request to change your rotation (if it still matters)!

Welcome Aboard! If my DH and two DS's were sailing on this trip ... they would definitely be interested in a fishing trip. Something to keep in mind for next time!!
