Yes, we might say "That puts a wrench in things" or something similar, but it's probably not commonly used anymore. We also say you "wrench" your back/neck if you pull a muscle.

I just love that there is a very active thread, a FB group with over 60 members for a cruise that has not been formally announced yet....people in my non 'DIS' world just don't get this

So in order to have the 2013 schedule in the brochure by 18th January, and assuming they have to have it all printed and all, surely the schedule must already be decided and in that case we need to know NOW !!

We look forward to joining in some of the organised events this time as were too shy last time.

And would love to join a large table. We always sit at an 8 but on the WBTA we moved to a 4 on boarding to keep a couple company who had been seated alone only to find that after night 3 they moved to a much larger table after making friends with a group and we were sitting alone for the rest of the cruise....not our idea of fun! And our intended act of kindness turned around on us!

We are down as a maybe for WBTA 2013 but you and I know that that Dummy Cruise on the Fantasy will be moved!!
I think someone will organize linked dining. Dan had that done last time. And that worked fantastic. So join that group.

JVD is an experience that will be in my memoirs of one never to forget

I hope for Lee's sake that the announcements are out before our mini-meet in February, he will be going mental with all our what ifs
Saving money in a pot is a good idea. I can save all my € 2,00 coins.

And I go definitly whit the JVD tour this time. I heard so many good stories. I won't miss it this time.

Yes I saw that too,so I can order it online. But how is it for the American people? Can they order a brochure too. Let's hope that they annouce the 2013 itineraries for the magic/wonder then.

Ah cute! I have two grandchildren - Jackson (8) and Anna (5) My son Scott is 35, but I always tell him that he was born in a previous lifetime because I certainly can NOT be old enough to have him! I am pretty sure my DIL is 35 as well, but at least I don't have to claim giving birth to her even as nice as she is! (yes, I really do think the world of my DIL)

My children will be Finnian (DS 5), Graiden (DS 6.5) and Madigan (DD 8.5) at the time of the trip. DH will be staying home with our disabled child but hopefully will meet us post-cruise for a stay at WDW.... if that's where we disembark.
As of right now, their Grammie is also hoping to join us... Please God ... I'll need the help
I will add you to the roll call.

Thanks Kristi. I am sure once this cruise is official there will be lots of thing organised, on the 2011 WBTA we had so many DIS events that I am sure there will be lots for everyone to join in with/help organise. It certainly helps build the excitement whilst waiting for the cruise!

You'll need to send me the photos so that I can show Stevie what he missed and that we ate his portions too

I have to say that on the way to JVD I was panicking a bit, when DCL had cancelled their trip, due to the impending bad weather?! which didn't happen, it was scorching, and the other boat broke down about getting back and missing the ship.... but on the way back I couldn't care less for some reason

I hope for Lee's sake that the announcements are out before our mini-meet in February, he will be going mental with all our what ifs

On the other hand, if it is all public and we have booked for this upcoming WBTA, we can whip him into a frenzy too hopefully !!!!
I had a teramundi pot that I saved £1 coins in, I hadn't filled it fully but opened it as it was part of my spending money for the WBTA. I had around £600 in it. I've got another one on the go already....so hopefully it will be full by Oct 2013!

I hope so too, if it's not announced by the end of Feb I will be climbing the walls.

Will dig out the pics tomorrow & send them to you.

If so, us and Pinky166 were your across the hall neighbours?!
I was wondering that too when I just read Sandy's post, I recall seeing the door magnets with Sandy & Tom on.

We are also hoping to do a family med cruise in June if the dates work out!
Yay welcome Taina, I will add you to the list on page 1.
