Hi everyone!

I'm Jordan and of course new here and I'll be on with cruise with my family (Happy college graduation to me!). I'm the oldest (24) of 6 kids going (the youngest being 2 and 1/2). There are quite a few of us traveling and while we've been on two other Disney cruises over the past year (7 night Eastern on the Magic and 5 night Bohemian on the Dream) I can't believe I haven't found you guys before. This is awesome! I'm just going to post a few questions/info and maybe some of you guys can help me out with any tips of suggestions?

We'll be traveling with:
Three younger kiddos: 6 year old (girl), 4 1/2 year old (boy), and a 2 1/2 year old (boy). Four college age-ish: 24, 25, 23, and 19 (we still consider ourselves kids haha) and three (real) adults.

I just today learned about the FE groups and of course saw that we missed the deadline (Clearly I should have been focusing on planning this cruise rather than graduation haha) Even so, any cute ideas for little trinkets I can bring for our 3 little ones? I think it'll still be fun for them to do even if it's just us stuffing their extenders everyday.

Also, does anyone know or have a list of the nightly themes (Pirate Night, Golden Mickeys, ect;?) I've always embroidered and appliqued the kids themed outfits for each night on the previous 2 cruises we've been on, easily finding the daily navigator online before hand. However, I'm having a hard time finding a list this time and it's making my OCD outfit planning a tiny bit difficult!

We'll be staying in Paris for 4 days before our cruise so we can tackle Disneyland Paris while we're in Europe.

Any avid pin traders here? The little kiddos love to trade for fun but us big kids are pretty serious about our pin trading and would love to meet up if anyone here is interested

I'm sure I'll think of more but for now, if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on these I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

Jordan,

Pirate Party is on Friday July 5th when we're leaving Dubrovnik. That's about all I know.

I'm still trying to figure out my "connectivity" options. I'm bringing my iPad mini and would like to be able to upload photos and update a blog when we're in port. Does anyone have any experience with Boingo? http://www.boingo.com/wifi-plans/ if I'm reading it correctly, looks like I can get unlimited mobile access for $8 a month.

There is another post on page 112 post #1670 where the person listed the following showing formal night on July 2nd. I don't know which is correct.


Hi Y'all:

I called DCL today and got the rundown for the June 27th 12-Night Venice Sailing as far as what nights are casual, pirate night, semi-formal & formal. I thought I'd share it here just in case anyone was wondering.

Thursday-June 27th: Casual
Friday-June 28th: Casual
Saturday-June 29th: Casual
Sunday-June 30th: Casual
Monday-July 1st: Casual
Tuesday-July 2nd: Formal
Wednesday-July 3rd: Casual
Thursday-July 4th: Casual
Friday-July 5th: Pirate
Saturday-July 6th: Semi-Formal
Sunday-July 7th: Casual
Monday-July 8th: Casual

I have no idea how accurate it is.

Janet

We were told this over the phone from Disney- Formal Night- 1st Wednesday (July 3rd)
Semi formal- 2nd Monday (July 8th)
Pirate Deck Party- 2nd Sunday (July 7th)

Although, Formal night on July 2nd (sea day) seems to make more sense to me.... Either way we have established only one formal night for sure which makes my packing much easier!!

LOL... Sorry I guess I showed my ignorance. I was thinking since we leave on June 27th and we are at sea that was the day she was referring to. Sorry for the confusion, I guess I need it spelled out. LOL
