Here's the other thing that works well with how the website is set up:

Chris has hyperlinked a specific post to the webpage, so an organizer can have "their post" buried on any page of the thread, and update as needed. When that is updated, it is also updated on the website without him having to do anything.

Example: https://sites.google.com/site/onamag...galveston-area


The organizer who made that post can actually click on that DIS post and edit as necessary. Once updated, it shows on the website real time.

The only negative... once we hit 250 pages and this thread is shut down, updates will not be able to be made so the organizer just has to recopy the info onto a new post of new thread, then send Chris the link so he can update the hyperlink within the website.

Here's another good example of how we can tie in posts from DIS to website for organizers to make updates:

https://sites.google.com/site/onamag...up-palo-brunch

So KaseyC can update new Palo group brunches by going back to her original post... but then it is up to people to go to the website to see updates.

Even just having a list on page one of the events like we used to have with would be helpful for some I think.

Something like this - a straightforward list of events might bring more awareness:

Onboard Events
All aboard meet and greet
Book Exchange
Candy Swap
Champagne Girls
FE Exchange
Mickey Mouse Club Night
Palo Group Brunch
Pin Trading
PJ Breakfast
Postcard exchange
Private Tasting
Pub Crawl
Room Tour
Running Club
Scavenger Hunt
Scrap booking
Secret Mickey
Toddler Meet and Greet
Until We Meet Again Lunch
Villain's Night

Speaking of... I was glancing through them -- is the Secret Mickey Reveal going to be intertwined into the Until We Meet Again Lunch? That might be an update we can do for the Lunch if so.

Plus there are other links. Has anyone asked recently "what is a good way to go from IAH to Galveston" or "What are some pictures we can use to make things?" Both are already links on the webpage (not onboard events listed above, but are listed with info) Very comprehensive, but for some reason not being utilized to it's maximum

I like the idea of the events being listed on page 1 as well. I'm looking at Disboards from my phone the majority of the time and rarely check the website (no offense).

When starting the new Part Two, if we keep everything on page one for each organizer, then Chris can embed the new hyperlink of new thread post to correct page on website (like those two examples I posted). Then those who prefer the website are happy, and those who prefer page one are happy. Hopefully a Win Win situation.

I'm a running commitment-phobe (I'm a swimmer/water polo player -- do not do well on land!), but I might decide to join y'all! Still a little gun-shy...

I just saw you are from OK, what part? We are currently living on Fort Sill!!
We are in Norman. Just South of OKC. My hubby grew up here, and they have a family business here.
I've stayed all over Oklahoma! My Dad used to be stationed in Ft. Sill. Have you been to Anadarko yet?

Ok, thanks!
I am trying to get ideas. It sounds a lot like reverse trick-or-treating.
I was thinking of theming gifts around a special night, like pirates. Did your family ever have a fave gift?

Very much win-win!

You might be able to find some ideas there. If anyone has any more links I can add, please add them here and I'll gather them up.
Thanks.
I am following 95% of this from my iPhone and it does not list everything as I am finding out.

From our most recent FE cruise, our favorite gifts were:
Lucie (age 6): Disney Pins to trade
Luke (age 9): A water gernade ball and a small football, his friends and him played catch with it in the pool for hours everyday! Also liked pins to trade
Me: a custom cruise shotglass with a mini
Hubby: A recipe book with all the cruise and WDW recipes
Corinne: not sure?
