In the future you should have your TA call DCL and have all documents mailed to you. It will save you a trip. I do that for all my clients.

Back from a long weekend in Chicago with DH (no kids!) and came home to our cruise documents and all of our FE gift components! And we stopped at an Ikea on the way home to get the wall hanger that I will decorate and re-purpose as our FE.

Looking forward to an assembly party with my kids this weekend and getting the FE gifts all done!

Quick question about the FE list ... At the end it says 117 54 ... Is that 117 adults and 54 kids? Or 117 adults of which 54 are kids ??? Thanks

yea we could do that (and i'll keep that in mind for the future) but then we wouldn't be able to see her, we met her when she worked much closer to our home and fell in love with her because she's such a Disney fan herself! it's her fault we've been on so many of our trips and she works near Carmel so it gives us an excuse to go play for the day

gotta go check the FE list again cause those numbers are freaking me out!!! need to re-count my gifts too

see ya, marianne

Our TA does that for us, too - which is good since she's not local to us

How/where did you order your Euros? What exchange rate do they use and what fees apply? How long does it take? Thanks!

If I had a travel agent near Carmel I like you would go pick them up! Of course San Carlos is closer than Richmond but not really that much of a difference,

We ordered ours thru AAA which uses TravelEx. It's two-day delivery and depending on how much you order, that can be free shipping. It tells you what the exchange rate is, usually a little higher than ATM would be, but no extra fees besides delivery, so do the math to decide what is best. We paid with debit card so it would not appear as cash advance on credit card.

We use Bank of America. You can order online. They don't charge a fee if you have an acct there and order a certain amount. It only takes a couple of days and you pick the euros up at the branch you choose. They will also exchange what you have leftover when you return (paper only...no coins).

I picked up our AAA TravelEx yesterday. I got 2 separate accounts to divide our money so if one gets hit the other is still available. Sue

I just read that the dollar is falling: 1.30325. So, we are going to wait until we arrive in Spain to get the best exchange rate through the ATM. Our bank does not charge foreign currency transaction fees.

Here's the website to see the most recent USD to EUROs exchange rate:

We got what we knew we had to have early on and will hit an ATM in Barcelona, and we're planning to also exchange on the ship if they have a decent enough rate as we need to - we have a few days in a row where we're booked solid so we want to have enough Euro to cover those days in the event we can't get to an ATM.
