Why do you feel it necessary to laugh at somebody else's cruise experience? You enjoy cruises your way and others enjoy them another way. It's not for you to say which way is the "right" way. I like interacting with the crew and I enjoy it when they seem to be enjoying interacting with me. I grow attached to our servers and stateroom hosts. Don't you? And maybe you don't because you don't really talk to them or care to ... that's fine....but a lot of us do care. For a lot of us, that's why we're on a Disney ship.

As for Peter ... I think we've had him once or twice. Can't remember now. I know we've had Brent once. Peter, I think, actually has a an amazing pirate costume that I wish I had taken a photo of ... so I'm hoping he's wearing it again this year. That was the only time I talked to him ... to compliment him on his costume. He seemed friendly enough taking my compliment.

We've met him many times in the hallways on the ship and tried to have a conversation with him and he's just not friendly. When you talk to the other CD's you feel like they are excited and happy your there and you never feel like you're bothering them. Quite the opposite vibe from Peter. Trust me, everyone I travelled with felt the same about him.
I've been on too many DCL cruises - LOL - if Peter was CD on the Magic in the summer of 2010, then that's why he was familiar to me in the pictures - I had a conversation with him when coming into one of the Baltic ports while watching on Deck 10 - but I didn't know he was the CD - we hadn't been to any of the shows in the WDT.

I'm always much more interested in hanging out with the characters on the ship One time I was taking pictures of Minnie at a deck party (sail away time from one of the ports) and then later the same day, I was getting my picture made with her in one of her fancy outfits and she remembered me from earlier - she pointed at me, then up (towards Deck 9) and then did a little dance and signed picture taking - It was the coolest character interaction I've had.

And really, character interactions on DCL are so great. Our first Med I saw Peter Pan just hanging out on Deck 5 and asked him what he was doing - he winked and said "looking for mischief." He was on the train to Rome with us and came "****-a-doodle-doo-ing" as we got near Rome - Nathan will never forget it because it woke him up with a start because Peter Pan was so loud - and so in character.

DH likes chatting up the Princesses. And the Queen of Hearts is a favorite of mine - she "swooshed" her skirt at me once when she was coming through as if I was in her way and as if to say "off with her head." She's my inner villian, just so you know

6 weeks

We fly out in SIX WEEKS!
I know that DL1957 and some of her group are on the same flight as us (ATL to BCN, Delta) leaving on June 12th - anyone else? We plan to meet up in the gate area to make the time go faster.

Also as a reminder. we're "hosting" a Meet/Greet at the Renaissance Barcelona on both Thursday night and Friday night, both starting at 7 PM. We'll hang out in the lobby area, so if you're staying at the hotel or just want to pop in to say hi, we'll look around for DISers. Nothing formal, nothing long - just a chance to get acquainted and share travel stories and exchange tips for Barcelona, etc.

And on Friday night, after the Meet, we're going to go to the Magic Fountains of Montjuic - I'm going to get directions from the concierge, but it looks pretty easy to get there with public transportation. Thought we'd head out around 8 PM so if anyone wants to go at the same time, that's what we're doing.

Meet and Greet on the ship is scheduled for Saturday, June 15th in the Promenade Lounge beginning at 3 PM til time for safety drill; come by during that time to say hi to your fellow DISers - definitely a come-and-go, or come-and-stay sort of thing.

We try to deliver as soon as possible because DH made luggage tags that have the port times on them. Especially helpful for those who do not got on DCL excursions. Sue

I"ve had crew members seek us out just to say hi. Trust me he doesn't make or break my experience, if that was the case I wouldn't sail with him.
I agree with you. DSIS and DBIL changed to DCL because they felt the crew really cared about their day when the asked. It raises a good cruise to a great cruise in our opinion. I have to agree about Peter. We had him as assistant DC on the 1st Alaska cruise because he was taking over from either Brent or Clayton. Maybe Clayton will routate off before or after the transalantic.

I'm fine with latecomers as long as I have extra gifts already, but I know that a cut-off is for a reason. With that said, if she wants to participate with the understanding that not everyone will be able to deliver to them, is it ok to tell her to add herself to the main spreadsheet and put her cabin info and call herself a LateComer in the FE column (that is Yes, No)?
I think you were talking with my daughter on FB, thank you for helping us! How do we access the document to add our names and be listed as late comers? This is so exciting! This is our first Disney cruise and we appreciate all the help and hints!

Hi - ok, that makes sense.
For some reason, you can't add yourself directly to the spreadsheet but you may be able to add yourself via the form:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...VSWnc6MQ#gid=0

(OK, I just tested it out and was able to add data to the spreadsheet via the form - just can't edit it).

I would suggest when you fill it out that you put YES for the FE's (it's really fun - this is a huge group and not as typical as other cruises - in fact, we're doing the next sailing and have less than half the number of cabns participating) and in the ALLERGY section put LATE SIGN UP so that your cabin info will be included for the final FE list but so that people that have already done their FE gifts know that if they have enough, they can deliver, but if not, they don't have to scramble to add another cabin. And send LLLPath a message directly (private message) so she'll know to look out for the info.

And as a note, to be able to send a PM, you have to have 10 posts on DIS, so get to posting to introduce yourself / traveling party - you've got a lot of catching up to do (LOL) - actually, this would be a great time to ask any specific questions you have.

I don't think you can tell from the list as we didn't include a location. But I think many of us are from the US but there are some from other countries as well.

Wow - sorry I opened a can of worms with the CD question. We just didn't care for Clayton's cheesy jokes/dances but have enjoyed every other CDs (Brent, Christiaan, and Jimmy) we have had. It also looked like our favorite server is now on the Fantasy so we're thinking of requesting a dining rotation instead. So is it just APL, LPA, PLA repeatedly over 12-day span?

Only six more weeks to go. How cool is that. For those of us (most of us I think) that booked on opening day, this cruise seemed a lifetime away but here we are!!
