Okay - a few of us are researching lanyards now and had a question about the name of the group. We will try to incorporate that into the lanyard as well as the insert that goes into the badge holder.

There was discussion about this recently as none of us could remember where the name came from or had it been decided on as a group.

Keep what is already in place? Choose a new one? Suggestions?

Other ideas??

The other question on my mind...

Are people wanting the actual DIS lanyards and badge inserts?

Or just a DIS lanyard insert that would go into the badge of the silver/gold/platinum badge received at port? Since most will be receiving a lanyard at checkin, bringing their own from WDW with pins, etc?

The idea struck me when I saw we have so many platinum, etc - and the insert would still be identifiable as DIS (just put your room key behind it or add second badge holder from previous badges in your stash) but still help keep your DCL Castaway Club status visible (since someone mentioned crew notice that). I also noticed we have some who want lanyards but don't want to contribute $$ in the poll we took... so I thought I would throw out the idea of doing a badge insert only. Thoughts?

Can we join you guys even if we aren't in jammies? We'd skip the picture. But I realize that I'm not sure I'd feel totally comfy wandering the ship in mine. (And they are definitely G-rated.)
I can't take credit for that - that was the lovely GoofyNewfie who wrote that when the PJ breakfast was first discussed a while back - I wish I was that witty

Of course you can - I understand some people may not want to wear PJ's - my DB think's it's hilarious!

I'm the same, but as soon as I get to know you I won't shut up. So that's something to look forward to for you all

Looking forward to it. I just told DH that the girls and I would go, knowing that he would not be up for it, and he told me that he wants to join us! Very unexpected. So we'll be signing up.
That's nice that he wants to join up for it - I am so looking forward to it!

I am struggling to find some for DB - I started looking last night! I can find plenty of Muppets ones for men though so he may end up with some Kermy ones, although I am hoping to find some Beaker ones because that is my nickname for him

I am so rubbish with coming up with names like that, so sorry to back out on that decision but I really do think we should come up with a firm name

I also hope Valbob pops up again at some point

I am in total support of "Taking the Magic Across the Atlantic... From Tejas from Espana". I think that's really cute.

Can the rest of our cruisers please let your thoughts be known on picking a name? I'd love to hear what you all think and if you have any ideas too.

Of course, your rules!




I've heard of others not even signing up for fe but just handing out gifts for fun of giving a little bit of magic

Haha - that was because I had time last summer when I created those. And I might have had a margarita in my hand. During the schoolyear I am just trying to keep my head above water! When I was thinking of what to put on those graphics last summer, the thought kept coming back to me that this was Disney's first transatlantic to depart from Texas, so incorporate that somehow. Seeing as how they have pulled out of Texas now at the end of 2013, it may be the only one for a while. And quite honestly, it's a hard sell because most people prefer wrapping a Disney cruise into a trip to the parks I think. So tying in Texas was what made it unique.

I'm wondering if that is too long on lanyards... character limitations... ? Some have been pretty stringent.

EBTA 2013 from Tejas to Espana = 30 characters including spaces

I'm a big fan of "Taking the Magic Across the Atlantic... From Tejas from Espana". It captures more of the spirit of our crossing from Galveston to Barcelona. Our sailing is the first and only so far of Disney ships to do that.

Either is fine for me.

Would be manageable, so that's what I will work towards.

Thanks for doing this Sarah! As it is our first cruise I will do as I am told with everything as I haven't a clue :D
