Hey! Family of 4 and a son with food allergies. Sounds familiar. We should definitely connect. If you're game for sharing a table, we may be able to request it. Let me know.

That's what happens when you take your eye off the ball

I'd better not tell the kids about FE, or I'll never hear the end of it!!

Looking forward to the cruise. I need a holiday
Hi LisaMarie,

Post your cabin. You might have some special drop offs. ;-)

I don't have life threatening allergies, but am lactose intolerant. On my last cruise at the end of my meal the servers would provide me the menu for the next evening so I could choose a meal. The chef would prepare it special (if necessary) or if it could not be altered they would let me know. Disney went out of the way to ensure my dining experience was awesome. I'm sure your sons will find it to be wonderful as well. (Also, the others at my table loved having a preview of the menus)

We're in interconnecting cabins 6516 & 6518 (we haven't yet decided which room the kids will have). Thank you

I think I will bring a few gifts so the kids can bring some 'magic' to others too. Perhaps I'll let them choose their favourite door decorations to do the drop off.

We'll just have to book another Disney cruise so I can be more organised next time!

Bunless - you "just" got super excited???

Okay, I'm with you. I pull up this thread about once a day during the week. I generally don't on the weekends. I pull up the facebook almost every night. I don't generally post on the facebook as that is under my wife's name.

I'm realizing how little prepared I am for this. I would like to lose 10 more pounds - with the understanding that I will probably gain 15 on the cruise. I haven't tounched Rosetta Stone Italian in 5 weeks. I haven't done enough research on our destinations, etc., etc...

Saturday's graduation party will soon be over, then NOTHING BUT TRIP PREP (oh, and work).

I have life threatening food allergies too but im allergic to fruit not nuts and I found DCL handled it really well when we were on our cruise last year. My DD may also have the same allergies (waiting for her to be tested) and the kids club were great with her.

The excited was more my referencing the kindness of strangers wiling to get me a magnet despite the fact that we won't be doing a FE this time.

HOWEVER! I can't allow myself to be truly excited until my end of work year next weekend (I run a ballet school, it's our recital). After that, full excitement ahead!

Well fellow travelers, our plans are set! Leave DFW late evening of the twenty-second Texas time on British Airways, arrive London Heathrow mid morning London time, only a two hour layover and fly from there to Barcelona, arriving late afternoon of the twenty-third their time. Then we stay at hotel Monte Carlo for for two nights before we all get together on the Magic. Then we get to meet and hang out with all of you for twelve nights! After the cruise we stay one night in a hotel at the airport because we fly British Airways again (this flight leaves at insane o'clock in the morning) to Heathrow for again only a two hour layover before flying back to DFW. My biggest regret on this schedule is not being able to spend any time in London, one of the worlds premiere cities. I don't think we even have time to leave the terminal. According to Mela, to get more time in London we would have had to pay much more or use American Airlines on parts of the trip, which we wanted to avoid because they have ornery management and an intransigent union and one never knows when they're fixin (Texas word) to strike and leave people stranded. Enough for now, everyone travel safe and looking forward to meeting you!

I read on allearsnet that bathrooms are hard to find and tours leave little time for stopping to go. She HIGHLY suggests not drinking much before going on excursions. Bathrooms in restaurants are meant for customers only. You will find a basket outside the door. It is expected that patrons will leave some coins before using the bathroom.

I know pick-pockets are prevalent in Rome. I'm not sure about elsewhere. We have pouches that go around our neck and tuck under the shirt. We put passports and wallet stuff in here. (I understand that carrying a copy of your passport is completely acceptable in Italy...have not confirmed this though)

Does anybody remember if the washers on the Magic are high efficiency?

Washers

I think technically they are high efficiency. I know they all run hot and the dryers never dry everything efficiently. We have used both liquid and powder detergent that we bring from home.
