Sure!
Just browse around on the DISigner threads and people make personalized graphics. You download it to your computer then print it out.
I use magnetic printer paper but you can also use regular paper then laminate it.

DCL doesn't allow any adhesives on the doors at all so magnets are fun & don't leave residue. We put some on our fridge after the cruise too.

Thank you, I think I'll try to make some with our son. But first I need to get my fish extender made, time seems to be flying by, I don't know where this weekend has gone!

Any idea when you are going to close the list? just wondering now about numbers to start putting gifts together.

Not long now Anyone started packing?!
I am planning on closing the list on July 22.

I have most of my packing items set aside, but I haven't pulled out all the suitcases yet. My two boys are going away to camp for a week - one in July and one in August - so I have to get them prepared for that first. YIKES!

Sounds like you've got a busy summer of packing and laundry Jeni!

I'm kind of doing the same with packing. I've set up a rail now to start setting aside our cruise clothes and I've got a big bag for bits and bobs that might come in handy that I put aside as and when I come across them but that bag is now full already!

it's all I can think about! My poor husband, I'm driving him crazy I think! My plan for this week is to sort out all the info we need for our Do It Yourself excursions.

We are using Rudy's Touring Service in Rome. He has great reviews and was super easy to communicate with. He was extremely helpful and flexible. The rest of our excursions are going to be through Disney. We have never traveled here before so we thought it best to stick with Disney most of the time.

Good luck with your packing! I think I might be driving my husband a little crazy as well!

Hi

I have a cruise box that I keep dropping things into and it is now overflowing. I keep hiding all the boys nice clothes in there so they don't get ruined before the cruise. I am going out next week to pick up some bits for myself. With my luck the shops will all have their Autumn stuff out!!!!

My boys still have just over three weeks left at school. My oldest is transferring to secondary school in September so we have been busy with leavers stuff. Once that is done, I am going to concentrate on fish extender stuff. I am going to attempt to make it using the Ikea hanging pocket thingy, felt and lots of hot glue. Wish me luck!!


We were going to do all our own excursions as we are used to travelling in Europe (public transport etc.) but I have decided to book three half day Disney trips. The combination of the August heat and my little one in a buggy may be too much for us. This trip is mainly about the ship for us as we have plans to visit Italy as part of a European trip next year.


Have a great day everyone.

Packing

I'm an ongoing packer too. Was pleasantly surprised with a double discount event at work this week so went out and stocked up on all the pharmacy stuff today.

Getting really excited now.

Fish extender

Thanks Pinkytink and Jenn for the Pms. Still unable to reply so have send an email instead.

Tonight's mission is to find gift ideas for the fish extender.

Hi Lisa,

We are going for three half day Disney excursions too. Just thought it would be easier and cut down on the planning for me. The nice thing is they are all mornings so hopefully it will not be quite as hot, the pool might be less busy when we get back and we get back in time for lunch. I thought I might order room service late the night before so we have snacks to take with us. DS won't manage a morning without food.

Welcome

We had the same idea as you and booked all AM tours.

I think I'm going for the Ikea hanger too! Not sure about how I'm going to "Disneyfie" it yet tho.

I think you guys have the right idea about doing the Disney excursions. We were going to DIY the excursions as they seem quite pricey but I've been researching tonight trying to find a ready made "idiot's guide" to doing Pisa and not had much luck so now I'm getting cold feet - especially with a 2 year old in tow! I had pre booked Pisa and Pompeii and we decided to cancel them but now I don't know.

What ones are you all going for?

In Villefranche we're doing the Nice & Monaco tour through DCL mostly because we'll have a lot of OBCs to use up.

For the Italian ports we're going through Rome In Limo. It's a nice to go at our own pace but still be driven/guided. I don't feel like wasting precious time trying to navigate. Since we're splitting the van with my parents, all 3 ports are costing us around $900 for our family of 4 + tips. (Their website has a section if you'd like to sign up for a small group to share & cut down costs if you have no other couples/families to share with.)

DCL would charge that much, if not more, for 4 of us on one full day excursion. Not to mention the thought of waiting for 30 other people to get their gelato is not very appealing.




eta: The prices above don't include admission tickets to various sites but RiL does provide links & what time of entry to choose such as 9:30 entry to Tower of Pisa, 2:00 Accademia or 2:00 Vatican.
HTH!!

Trips and disneyfi-ing

We are skipping the French tours, going to Pompeii, Rome on the coach (we will get too see the sights and Ill have a better idea whether I can see everything in a weekend when I return sans child) and half day in Pisa. They are the cheapest trips but we chose them because I didn't fancy a whole day in the middle of the Summer with a whiny seven year old.

As for the ikea hangar, pick up felt sheets (50p each at Hobbycraft) red which could make mickey shorts (with two buttons stuck on), yellow for Donald's beak, spotted fabric for Minnie's bow, etc. I made mine and still have enough fabric to make another one or sass this one up for our next cruise (assuming we do another one. )
