Kids sail free

I follow disboards on twitter and saw that kids will sail free on select 6 and 8 night cruises out of Galveston. I am hoping to take my four year old granddaughter sometime early next year. Sounds like a great deal. Sherry

Upgrade pixie dust to everyone!

The categories that are sold out are R, S, 5C, 5B, 7A, 10A, 10B, 10C, 11A & 11C.
My AMEX will be free and clear for any upgrades that DCL wants to throw my way.

It would be "borrowed" by my DH! He passionatly hates the website. He has joked many times about how he would pay Disney if they let him design and fix their website.

We hit our 2 month mark until we are in Disneyland! Which means we could make our ADR. DH called this morning and booked a character breakfast for the Minnie and Friends at the Plaza Inn. I told him to get the earliest ressie he could and he got one for 7:10. Does this mean the park will open at 7? Nephew is at that age where I am afraid each trip will be his last before "he is to cool" for the characters. It will be a sad day for his aunt when this day comes. Maybe it will be postponed for a while as he has two 30 year old "uncles" who haven't yet hit that phase in life. I see a future Disney imagineer in the making, too bad he wants to be a neurosurgeon, and mommy wants him to be a plastic surgeon

I am my office's H&S coordinator (which everyone finds funny since I am the only one from our office with a reported H&S incident-Boss dropped a MH cover on my hands and broke all my fingers-lost all my fingernails) Anyway, I was restocking our first aide kits and now have a very well stocked first aide kit for this cruise. The single doze packets are great for travelling. So if anyone needs anything-my cabin will be the pharmacy As a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts, I like to Be Prepared!

No, and I agree. I think they should go by days aboard versus number of cruises.

There is so much to look forward to I am a bit overwhelmed.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome aboard Hallie and the rest of your cute family. Don't fret. You still have two months to get ready.

On Sept 20th....well first a brief history. My DH and I live on our sailboat. We have been in a slip in Alameda, CA (San Francisco Bay Area) for six years and on Sept 15th we cut the lines and started cruising. We were (are) headed to San Diego where on Oct 29th we will join the Baja Ha Ha, a group of a 145 boats, and sail to Cabo San Lucas. After a few days there we will sail to LaPaz and then fly out of there to do this cruise. Then back to LaPaz where we will cruise Mexico for the next two years.

So, back to Sept 20th. We were sailing from Captiola to Stillwater Cove when I was going up the steps to the cockpit and a wave hit the side of the boat just as I turned loose to enter the cockpit. It pivoted me and with great force threw me on the cabin floor on my back. When we got anchored I went to Urgent Care in Monterey. Gave me pain pills and sent me home. After two days a friend came to get me and I jumped ship for land. I stayed with her for a week and then flew to Phoenix to stay with my son and family. This last week I went to a spine specialist and had an MRI. Waiting on those results but he thinks I have fractured two vertebrae. I cannot sit up straight or walk for any length. So laying down on my side is the only option right now. Besides hurting I am BORED.

Our son left Phoenix today to go join my DH in San Luis Obispo to take the boat to San Diego. My son and DH will then come to Phoenix until I am able to go back to the boat.

Oct 4th was our 37th anniversary and we were apart. After years of not being together on that date due to work assignments we thought this year we would for sure. You just never know what is going to happen. Hug those close to you every chance you get!

This is my fourth Disney cruise and my DH's third. I did the WBTA Sept 2010 and we have done the WBPC Jan 2011 and the MR Dec 2011. We are excited about this cruise and look forward to meeting everyone.

Thanks for letting me ramble on....

Oh, yes, we are in a 5B. Do you need that for the cabin crawl?
Wow! What a story. I hope you can get things fixed so that you can at least feel somewhat comfortable. On the cabin, yes! Thank you.

Wear what is comfortable for you and appropriate.

I LOVE IT!! Please sign us up for one. Actually, two if you don't mind (so I can keep track of my parents as well as my kids). Now I just have to remember to pack magnets and the marker. That's no small feat. Sadly, I'd forget to bring my own arms if they weren't attached.

On a positive note, DH and I got to play with the x-ray machine at his work, WVU ended up winning(barely) and I got to see Rich Rod and Arizona lose in OT. Overall it was a good day. Running might have to be put on hold for a bit though. Glad we decided not to do the Wine and dine half marathon.

Anyway, it reminded me, who torn their ACL? How are you feeling and when is your surgery?
So sorry to hear about your toes. But, I get it. Live with your team, break your toes with your team. The kids and I the same way. By the way, does the ship have a sports bar? If so, I'll see you there. Can't miss any hockey games. Oh wait . . . never mind.

Let me see. Your boss broke your fingers. You broke your toe watching football . . .Poor BABY! remind me not to get to close to you

Former girl scout here, too. I pack like that - I have the plastic box from my old owner's locker with a motley assortment of stuff in it from pills and bandaids to duck tape and super glue.

Yes, Diversions is the sports bar.

you have lots of eating options if you choose to do so, but really - most people who 'dress to the nines' are doing it for the pictures. "Business casual" describes it right, I think. I was offended by the guy at our table in a baggy tee shirt and backwards baseball cap while his lady and daughter had made an effort - to me, that was rude to them AND the rest of us.

Connections

The biggest question for my Dh is how will we stay connected. Of course, he means to all the gadgets we live with to stay connected to the world. What is the computer availability? Is it too much to he that we have wi-fi? Will our cell phones work in ports? Most of all I am concerned with staying in touch with family. We just found out today that Dh's step mom (90) fell last weekend and my mom has been bedridden after a fall in August. I call my mom twice a day and would love to be able to do so on the cruise.
