No kidding! That was my exact response in my head when I read that. I'm hoping just to get my FE done and get packed by then, let alone build a barn! LOL

I will supervise not physically build it all myself. I do get my hands dirty though. Of course the ranch is full of chores in addition to my two other businesses.

Watched Magic sail yesterday on Galveston Cruise cam

Newbie with question about dinner attire

Hello everyone! This is my first post and the first Disney cruise for hubby and I. 22 days and counting!! We've been to Disney World several times, the last time was for Thanksgiving week in 2012. I'm going through withdrawal.

I didn't realize until today that each night had a specific requirement for attire. I'm worried about formal and semi-formal night because my hubby does NOT like to dress up. We assumed because it's a cruise, it would be laid back... boy were we wrong!!!

Does he really have to wear a suit??? There's no way we're spending money on a suit for one evening during a cruise. He works from home, so he doesn't already have one. Do you all think slacks, a button-up shirt and tie would be acceptable?

And no way I'm spending money on a ball gown. If I get a cocktail dress, how do I get in on board without getting it all wrinkled?

If hubby has to wear a suit, I guess we'll just skip dinner that night!! Lots of other things to eat :-)

Thanks everyone for the input. It's much appreciated!!!

Not everybody dresses up on formal night. Enjoy the cruise, you do not need to buy a suit, ball gown or cocktail dress.

I have never owned a formal gown and don't plan to. We have been on 4 Disney cruises and have maybe see one formal gown. Women wear nice dresses or slacks outfits. I have a pair of "velvet" capris that I wear with a fancy top and some type of dressy jacket (NOT a blazer or anything, more like a dressy one to wear over a shell or something) and dress sandals. That's about as dressed up as I get. Hubby doesn't own a suit as such. He has a pair of dark dress slacks and a blazer that goes with them. With a button down and tie that is as dressy as he gets. As long as you don't show up in shorts, flip flops or swim suits they are cool with it.

Here are links to some pics from "formal" nights on two of our previous cruises.

This one is from 2004

These are from our 10 day Southern Caribbean Christmas Cruise in 2006 This was Christmas Eve which was also formal night.

Thank you!

Thank you for the info about dressing for formal night (there is a lot of conflicting info out there). I knew I had come to the right place!

We checked-in online over the weekend and we're as excited as can be :-)

No problem! Now I have to figure out what I am going to wear as it seems some of the things I was planning on are no longer in my closet! I think the move caused things to get left behind.
