Just got stateroom assignment...



I have been visiting the cruise site everyday even though I had heard that when you sign up for a Category VGT, Guaranteed Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah you don't hear until 16 days before...25 days until the cruise.

Many thanks,

WDW in 30, we were late for the FE list also, if you want to swap state room numbers and ages of kiddos, we would love to make it fun! I have been compiling my own items for my kids to enjoy, pjs, sand shovels, glow in the dark fun etc. Getting so excited.. our boys still don't know what we are doing in FL!!

Lisa, the Disnames Mickey Head is so cool!! Thanks for doing it!


We are getting so excited, too. We are leaving in two weeks, spending a week in West Palm with my in-laws and then driving up to the port on the 6th! Suitcases are out and ready to be filled!

I made a countdown chain for the kids to tear into - they loved helping me make it. I have most of my FE done.

My biggest problem is that every day I want to go shopping for more and more cruise related stuff! I think my husband is going to have to put my credit card on ice! I just can't seem to help myself.

Hope everyone else is having a good day. It is grey and rainy and I have a cold. I am really looking forward to April!!

Good morning, everyone!

Is it time to leave yet?

So, I've had to redo my entire packing list for the cruise because we have decided to fly down instead of drive. Eeek! No more overpacking for me. Of course, that's not stopping me from continuing to shop. I just bought a new dress for me, 3 new shirts for DD10, and a new outfit for DD3 this weekend. I'm kind of out of control, I think.

I'm such a dork that I've been checking on the Disney site to see if I can still book a room just to see how full the ship looks. When I checked yesterday, I was still able to get availability for 2 adults and 2 children in quite a few categories and it still showed actual rooms to book. Of course, there are some great GTY fares on there, too. I'm a little surprised that there is any availability at all. I figured it would be a packed ship.

That makes me happy to hear about the possibilty of the ship not being full! Less people means less lines to deal with .

First time on disboards. We sailed the Fantasy last April 2012 on the western cruise and now will be doing the eastern cruise! We booked a VGT just like last year. I'm amazed that this thread started even before our cruise last year! Amazing how long some have planned. I don't think I could bear waiting over a year for a trip! Due to work schedules we always do our vacas fairly last minute, 3 months or less to plan.

Anyways we will be looking forward to our second cruise. Our son will be 23 months, he enjoyed it last year and will this year. Though he won't be able to do a lot of activities I know, but this cruise is as much for me and my wife, as it will be our five year anniversary as well. We booked Palo for the occasion and look forward to it. Time is soon approaching for the trip!!

We will be flying in from MN and staying the night prior on Cocoa Beach. Looking forward to the Cocoa Pier and beach. We've had over 12" of snow this past two weeks and its been snowier than usual so really looking forward to warm weather!

Welcome!
Speaking for my family... I would like to think that we planned so far in advance, but the reality is we are still going to be chickens without heads as the time comes closer!

Happy anniversary, nice way to spend it!

Is there a last minute second FE group? We couldn't commit to the big group but would be interested in joining a few families. DD 7 and celebrating DD turning 5. Can't wait for the trip.

I accomplished a huge task today by going through the kid's closets and having them try on clothes. Now is the fun part...packing!!!

On a separate note, we had Mickey Mouse call the other night as scheduled. When the call first comes in, you have to press 1 when you are ready for your "message." I am super bummed to say that it didn't work. I continued to press 1 as it prompted to. The call was then disconnected. The automated call even called back again and it still didn't work. I'm going to set up another call with the hopes that it'll work this time.

Have a great week everyone!

We have just booked this cruise and there will be 8 of us in our group! My daughter is in tears right now though about the cruise because she is a senior in high school and we did not know they changed the rules and once you are 18, even if you are in high school, you cannot be in Vibe (she just turned 18 2 weeks ago). I am hoping there will be some other 18 year olds in the same boat that she can find to be friends with otherwise she will have to hang with us all week.

Here who is coming:
Me(Krisann) 12th cruise
Ashlyn (DD18) 12th Cruise
Aaron (DS15) 12th Cruise
Ashley (DH) 10th Cruise

Jeanette (MIL) 4th Cruise

Susan (friend of family) 1st cruise
Adam (7)
Jenna (9)

We are looking at a relaxing time and time to disconnect with things before we open a retail shop where we live the week after the cruise!

Welcome to all those who have joined our party! I think I got everyone added to the roll call. Please let me know if I made any mistakes. I do that sometimes.

The suitcases are officially in the house. LOL! I haven't officially started putting things in them yet, but I do have some piles of stuff on top of them.

For those of you who are last minute planners, I don't think I should tell you that we are already planning our 2014 vacations right now. We are not happy if we don't have at least one vacation in the planning stages.
