I'm excited for the trip but also struggling..... My youngest son is 10. I know we can let him sign himself in/out of the kids area. I'm freaking out a little about that. Will we be able to get an extra wave phone so both of my boys have one and we have one?

I'm looking forward to seeing my kids smile. Neither is terribly emotional (externally) and the last time we took my daughter to disney her dad was sick...it also was the first time I'd heard her laugh out loud in forever.

Because Keegan's not very social, we're hoping to help him branch out. He did like the kid's club on our last cruise, so I know he'll love it even more this time...new meds have made a tremendous difference in him since then.

Secondly, I'm most excited to spend some quality time with the family. It seems like at home there is always something going on for someone... meetings, dr. appointments, my daughter works 2 jobs plus goes to school. It'll be a nice break for everyone.

Super excited! I'll begin packing tomorrow YAY!
Thanks for the support! My friend is getting very excited for her first Disney cruise, which is such a good thing because she has been fearing how hard the holidays were going to be. She is even looking forward to seeing the ship decorated and photos ops with Donald Duck. The FE has been very therapeutic too. From going to the craft store and picking out the material, to sewing it, and to crafting and buying gifts for everyone. I'm so happy we have such a great group of people and such a manageable size for FE. I was on the Hawaiian cruise in October and there were 80 cabins! Not nearly as much fun as this! You guys are awesome!

This just appeared on CNN.com. Keep in mind the Dream and the Fantasy are practically identical:

As I count it those of us doing everyone with the FE have a total of 56 people, 17 of which are under 18. Please tell me if I counted wrong.

Last minute packing questions!

Should I bring beach towels, or do they have something that works well? Are there a good amount of hangers in the closets or should I bring a few?

Another packing question:

Do we need to bring shampoo, conditioner, soap etc? I've seen several post saying its not necessary however on other cruise lines it's not provided.

Also what is the dinner dress code? I know the adult restaurants are more formal but what about the other restaurants??

Only 3 more sleeps

Thanks!!

They have the soap, shampoo, and conditioner in the room and will replentish whatever you use, the room host/hostess checks the room a couple of times a day. The dress code is mostly casual, one night is dress up. You are not supposed to wear bathing suits and sleeveless shirts to the dining rooms for lunch or supper.

There is no need to bring the beach towels. They provide towels at castaway cay and at the pools on board. I believe there are 12 to 15 hangers, I guess you could ask for more if you need more. I wouldn't pack hangers, save room for souvieners.

So a quick little update on project Kaitlin. So I have been out of town traveling for work and have been telling Kaitlin that this weekend is the week we are going to Orlando. Well about a month ago I got her time off cleared with her boss, she was was "ok sure no problem at all". Well Kaitlin calls me this morning and says we can't go to Orlando this weekend because she has to work... I start FREAKING OUT inside but still acting ok. Well I called her boss and she isn't in till like 5:00pm (this was at 10:00am). So I had to wait all day... I finally get ahold of her and she made a mistake and forgot but went ahead and took her off the schedule.So all is good but it was a really close call.

<<<Note>>> for all of those who haven't been following the story, Kaitlin is my girlfriend who doesn't know she is going on her Dream ship "The Dream in three days!!!
