I think we will be in your dress group. I am thinking black top, nice black pants and "sparkly jewerly" (from Chicos) is going to have to be "formal". I think we will look fine, just not "ball gown". (I swear on one cruise I did a woman was dressed as if she was attending a ball. And her DH had on khakis and a polo. )

Also if there are any people with college or young adult cruisers in their party my sister and I would love to connect.
Welcome Ryan.

I didn't get any error pages after midnight eastern time. Before that, I was getting an error message when I'd try to get into my Castaway Member page. But after midnight the site seemed to be up and running just fine (I'm using Safari). I was able to do all my stuff but the check in which was unrelated to the earlier error message.

My travel agent did talk to DCL about my trouble. Turns out that their website isn't really set up to deal with a B2B with Disney Air. So they do have us flying home after the Med, all their records are right, it just doesn't work right on the DCL website. So they had me check in and just put fake info on the after-cruise-plans part. So I'm all checked in. Once I get my air info from DCL, then I'll input that over there properly.

I hear that a lot of folks on our EBTA part are going to be dressed to the nines. I always enjoy seeing others like that, but I don't even have a ball gown! But what you're describing will be totally fine. Most folks don't even notice what others are wearing. I know I haven't paid attention to that.

I'm really starting to get excited!

UK DIS'ers....

Can you help me with something strange?

We're doing a 3 night stay in London prior to our cruise. My baby is 12 months. The hotel has reserved us a "baby cot."

I'm from the US and have no idea what a "baby cot" is. Do you have an idea of what type of baby cots UK hotels generally provide for hotel rooms? Any examples or links to Amazon of what you think may be provided. I've emailed the hotel but I know that it goes to a central reservations desk so I'm not optimistic that the call center people will actually know details about room amenities.

Trying to decide if I need to buy & bring a travel crib for our trip.

Thanks!

In my experience the cots you get in uk hotels are generally travel cots. If you are staying in central London the room will probably not be big enough for anything else ;-)

Got to love it - us here in the US would say it's a travel crib - to us, a cot is something like what army guys sleep on - Just making my usual wry observations about language differences, even though we are both supposed to speak English

I thought the same thing about language differences. We always refer to it just as a Pack-n-Play.

we can play a good game of differences in a few months

A friend who recently visited London was amused that we use the 24hr clock I just took if for granted everyone did! I love all the small things!

One thing I learned from booking private tours on this cruise--- Europeans use the day/month/year format (seems obvious now, but it didn't occur to me before).

So I had to make sure to say "June 5, 2013" or 05/06/2013 when I inquired about tour prices, etc., so that they didn't accidentally book us for May 6, 2013 if I did it the "American" way
