Yes, I am so excited!!! We have stayed at BLT before, but I'm really looking forward to 3 nights in the MK view 1 bedroom! And we have sailed DCL before, but only on the Magic and the Wonder. Can't wait to experience the Dream!

Yes, I am involved in the Fish Extender. I'm in Group 2, I think you're in Group 1. I hope we have a Meet when we get on the ship.

I only booked excursions at Castaway Cay...Stingray Encounter and Glass Bottom Boat. The Stingray Encounter is on Castaway Day 2. We also booked Palo for dinner and brunch.

I've done the Dolphin Encounter at Atlantis and it us amazing. Have you looked into Blue Lagoon Dolphin Encounter on your own, without booking through DCL?

We would love MK view, too, but don't want to use up all of our points on one week, so we are opting for standard view. We will have a 1BR though.

This is our VERY first cruise and April 10th can't get here fast enough !!

Yay on the fish extender group. Have you done the fish extender thingy before ?? I wonder who came up with the idea originally. What a great one !!

We are doing the Stingray Excursion and Palo for dinner.

I WILL look into that !! I thought you had to book through DCL ... ah, the things you learn on the DIS ...

Thanks so much !!

Oh, and I hope they do a DISmeet, too. Is that something they would lost on our FE thread ?? Keep me posted if you hear of anything !!

Disney Mail !!

So I work part time and every day I get to leave the office at 2:00 PM. And I get to be home when the kids get off the school bus. I am thankful for this on a daily basis. I know how lucky I am, believe me. I really enjoy my job and the people I work with and I love the flexibility that I have with it. It earns us an extra $3,000 or so a month and helps fund my expensive Disney habit. If we really cut corners, I could do without my job, but I find that it all works out so well for all of the parties involved and wouldn't dream of quitting. Well, if we won the lottery or something I would-you know what I mean.

It is the habit of the children to get the mail out of the mailbox for me when they get off the bus. I could get it myself when I get home, but they seem to enjoy it, I let them get it.

Today, they came through the door shouting, "Momma!! Disney Mail!!" It is always good to get Disney Mail!!









It is just the cruise DVD that I ordered, but it will be something fun for us all to watch together tonight. Turns out no one has tennis or work or anything planned tonight so we will all be home.

I just thought I would share ...

We watched it twice already. And I have to say we are SUPER pumped after watching it. It is all we talked about all night. I have the disboards to keep me excited and I talk about the trip all of the time. But DH and the kids were really pumped after they saw the video. It was a fun DVD.

So it is a generic video about Disney cruises in general, or does have some general info, and let you choose your itinerary from a menu for more specific information about the type of cruises you can take?

I needs more info on this whole Alaska thing. My mom really wants to do it.

It is pretty general cruise stuff. They did have a section on Alaska which we were very interested in. It was pretty cool. It is really just an advertisement video that tells you how much fun you are going to have. You can order the cruise DVD for free. Also, there are trip reports on the Cruise line thread that are about the Alaska cruises.

I would so love to do this with you and see your mom again. Let me know if you are looking at any dates in particular.

Ugh I'm sorry the fabric doesn't seem like it's working out for you! Have you checked out Joann's? I just looked on their website, and I didn't see any fabrics exactly like what you had found, but they do have a few with Mickey, and a bunch of other character ones too! (A bunch of Little Mermaid stuff, which could be appropriate for the cruise!)

Here's the link to what I found: http://www.joann.com/fabric/licensed...age=1&psize=48
