Cool Family of 4 dining...

We ordinarily travel as a family of 9 with extended family. This time it's just the four of us. We have two boys (age 10 and 12).

Anyone from this board (with a family of 4 or 5?) interested in locking in our dining arrangements so we share a table of 8? I spoke with Disney and we can request it.

FE gang? Might be fun!

Booking tickets in Italy

Is there a site that I can buy these tickets online so that we don't waste time? Thanks!

Hi there
For ticket bookings in Italy go to www.tickitaly.com
It's definitely advisable to book tickets in advance. When we arrived at the Coliseum we must've passed at least a 3 hr queue to go to the front with our per booked tickets! Felt like royalty!!

We have to be out of our room by 11 & don't want to wander around with our luggage more than necessary!

We've booked a check in time of 11.30 based on the fact that once we've checked out of the hotel with our luggage we might as well head for the port. The terminal is just a large warehouse with a few Disney ad boards dotted around. It's much like a departures terminal in an airport. Our daughter met her DISboard friends here before they even checked in or boarded. It also allowed us to get a spot by the pool for the sail away party where we met more of our DISboard friends. We had arranged to wear a piece of red ribbon so that we would recognise each other and it worked quite well. Might be an idea for our group.
Hope to see you there! If not, on board.

Thanks!!!!!!

Hi Jodi, once we've checked out of our hotel with our luggage we will head for the terminal. We're booked for check in at 11.30. Some of the DISboard girls met in the terminal even before we all boarded the ship.

Please let us know your cabin no and we'll send a Scottish magnet round.

I should have mentioned. We're currently booked for Main seating rather than Second seating.

We are using DCL transfers from our hotel. When we did our "on line " check-in, it wouldn't allow us to pick a check-in time. So does that mean we are at the mercy of the DCL contracted shuttle service?

Fish Extender

Hi there,

For those of you participating in the FE, can I pick your brains please? I haven't been part of an FE group of 25 before ( although I understand this is small to what some are used too !) In the past I've delivered two or three seperate gifts to all of my allocated staterooms which amongst other things contained a handpainted acrylic canvas of Mickey, a shopper/beach bag with the Great British flag on it and a selection of british sweets and chocolate/candy bars. Now obviously this won't be possible with so many rooms partly due to luggage restrictions and partly due to the cost! What does everyone have in mind - one delivery per room? I'm struggling now to think what to include without breaking the bank and without, with respect, giving items which are of little or no use! HELP!

Thanks everyone

I generally do a souvenir gift thing per FE (don't want to give the game away as to what) and often chuck some British sweets or biscuits in - I've done the little packs of bourbon creams and percy pigs before. For me it is not quantity but the thought put into the gift and/or the look on the girls faces when they get a tattoo or something.

Thanks!!!
We just signed up for 12 ... the earliest available when I got online! I know E will want to meet up with the girls as soon as possible! I will tell her to come up with a plan to recognize each other!!!

We will just save our Barcelona sightseeing for the day we arrive back to Barcelona!

Anyone else planning on sightseeing in Barcelona on the 6th?

I will only deliver once to each room, however, there may be more than one gift. And depends on what my bags weigh when we are packing up.

Thank you so much!
we are #7621

We've got a great collection of magnets that we've acquired from our Disney cruises. It's probably the second biggest regret not doing the FE... first being the actually wandering around to deposit in others FE.

I think we're going to have to change to second seating. I'm hoping Disney honors the request. My son has life threatening food allergies so it will be critical that we are able to have as many meals as possible on ship rather on the excursions.

Thanks for letting me share.
