What i posted about car seats and sitting in the frint seat isn't a recommadation here.

No car seat or to young and in the front seat will mean a fine.....

Paid in full yesterday.

Flights to Houston - check
Flights from Barcelona - check
Hotel in Houston - check
Disney transfers from Houston to Port - check

All I need to do is sort out our ESTA's, which I will do nearer the time, and also travel insurance.

And the biggest thing - lose loads of weight!!!

I lost 3 stone for my cruise last year which was great - sadly I have put 2 back on. So, need to get a grip and get started.

If the child is under 4.5feet then it needs a carseat.

Getting around in Europe with small kids would be flying.
Fly from Barcelona to Amsterdam an Copenhagen.
Keep an close eye to the bagage weight restrictions, most airlines allow the max of 20kg (44 pounds) or some 23kg (50 pounds) in total not per bag.
Thank you.
She just had a new baby, but I will.

I was afraid I'd be hauling car seats, rats!
40 pound bags will be a challenge, but hey, that is what makes it fun. I may be joining the laundry party, often.

You've got lots of things sorted

I need to book our flights back from Barcelona. And I need to lose so much weight as well :-( I lost 36 pound last year and have piled it all back on and then some! So upsetting. Wasted so much money buying smaller clothes and then having to buy bigger everything again

I just turn them off all together. We just don't use them.

No Ginger Ale on DCL? DW usually gets Ginger Ale once one twice on most DCL cruises (albeit, at a restaurant, not at the soda fountain).

Steven
It seems to come and go, I suggested they put it on the station years ago, but so far - not there.


where is the FE list posted? Do we have a count yet? I am going to start making my gifts, but don't know how many to make!!!

Ginger ale was available in the dining rooms at dinner. My DH had it every night on the EBPC on Wonder, and at least once on a Canadian cruise on Magic.

You don't have to ask her anymore now.

You can ask whatever tou want to know about the Netherlands and i'm willing to answer as much as i know myself....

Are the kids tall enough to go without carseats??
Or do you have to find a way to get them here??

What is the magnets only mandate?

We were PIF on the 2nd! Costco's date was 1/4. Perhaps that is why a lot of people are PIF already?

Regarding flights, my biggest suggestion would be to use miles for the homebound journey if you have them. We got a great deal on United -- only 30K miles instead of a $1200+ ticket back to IAH (we are purchasing RT from HNL to IAH). And since I normally use between 40-80K to fly RT in the states, I think 30K is awesome!

Aside from miles I am no help, since we use United exclusively so we can earn more miles haha.

Hope all is well with all of you!
I agree. We had great luck with our flights using our United miles... decent times and decent connections. The 30K Saver Awards are awesome!!

Hi - just saw this - I'd be up for a game or two of poker!

No need to bump ... merely register for messages (daily seems best), via THREAD TOOLS (upper/right of each page). You will be sent an e-mail with all new messages, including links to DCL.

Hi everyone!! I want to sign up for the FE group, but I am having trouble PMing binkytell. To be honest I think I am doing something wrong while I'm sending the PM. I read a lot and the boards and post occasionally, but I've never actually send a message. I thought I did it correctly, but I haven't received a reply in a 4 or 5 days. I just checked and my acct. is showing no sent messages....so my guess is I messed up somewhere along the way!!! If you read this binkytell I would love to sign up for the FE group!!! Thanks and I'll keep trying!!

I am also having trouble. I finally figured out that I sent the first message to myself and not Sarah. I am still waiting for her to reply to my second message. My biggest concern is that I did something wrong again and that she didn't get the second message either. This is all new to me.
