Is anyone doing the Lights,Action Camera tour in LA, Because John was so sick when we got back from Hawaii we had to cancel the tour and they would not refund our money- it is an expensive tour- Finally after talking to several people they gave us credit for one of us so we hope to be able to do it this time. I am still going to try for a full two refunds.
I have found letters to be more effective than phone calls. Good luck getting the refunds.

I've been absent for a few weeks as we prepared for the arrival of our little boy and now he's here. He arrived Sat Sept 15 and he can't wait to cruise the Panama Canal! It's so crazy to have 2 kids now instead of just 1.
Congratulations!

EXCELLENT CHOICE! Any thoughts of doing something in Miami in between cruises ... or will you be staying on the ship? We'd love to do something special in Miami ... think we will sign up for Miami Tourism newsletter.

This was done for the Alaska cruises as well (Tracy Fjords?). The only downside is ... it's NOT mentioned in the Navigator ... so those of us who are glued to a camera have NO IDEA what is / was going on! I sure wish DCL would put this in the Navigator!

Thanks for all the congrats. He's been a real good baby so far. So much quieter than my first.... hopefully he stays that way. My oldest one has enough sass for both of them.

Is anyone going to WDW before the cruise and running the Everest Challenge? I think I've convinced DH to do it with me. Now I just have to wait for my DVC booking window to open up.

Are you looking at somewhere other than your home resort? I have had my club level before this cruise booked at AKL since June.

My in-laws had to book an 11:30 am flight. The alternative was to sit in the airport until 10 pm and then the connecting airport for another 3 hours, getting them home around 11 the following morning. They will just have to pray.

We're going to the world before this cruise, but waiting to see what the spring packages look like. We're out of points and I would rather stay at Pop Century than share a room with my inlaws.

Happy Day, All!

We went to see Mary Poppins and it was wonderful- although I think nothing could compare to the Lion King. The cast was great and the two young actors that played the children were so talented. The music and dancing were top notch . The show was about 2 1/2 hours long but it went by quickly. It was great seeing Mary Poppins fly with her unbrella.

I hope SW opens up next month for May. I think the tickets are going to be high priced but what can you do.

Hi everyone

Hi, we will be joining you on this cruise. We are just off the Fantasy 9/8 and had a wonderful time with a super active dis group. This will be our 3rd cruise - we were on the Wonder last dec for a Mexican Riv cruise. There will be Heather, my daughter; Jackson her son 3yrs old; and myself Elaine. We are originally from the Boston area but have been in CA for about 14 years. We are really looking forward to this cruise and getting to know everyone. Definitely want to take part in the FE. No stateroom number as yet. We also do second dining as it works best for us as Jackson likes to go to the club after he has an express dinner in the dining room.
