Smile Fantasy 7/6/13 too!

Hi all. We will be on the July 6th sailing of the Fantasy also!!! This will be our 6th cruise. We've sailed on the Magic and the Wonder. I can't wait to see the new ship. We are DVC members who purchased our membership during our first cruise.

Travelling in our party will be me, my husband and my son who will be 14 at the time of the sailing. My son's 's always had a great time on the cruises and gotten involved in the activities in the kids clubs, so I'm hoping he'll meet a few kids to pal around with.

We'll be in Disney for a week before the cruise, staying for 2 nights at Art of Animation and then 5 nights at Saratoga Springs. We've never stayed at either hotel, so I'm hoping it's okay. My favorite hotel is the Boardwalk and we usually always stay there, but they were booked. We love the Parks too.

I can't wait to go either!!

Maureen

Hello everyone. I realized I haven't logged on here since August but our cruise is getting closer and closer! My husband and I just returned from a short trip to WDW which got us charged up for July, "Be Our Guest" was awesome and chillin' at Kidani was amazing. Anyway, I am still wondering about Fish Extenders; I started making one but do you think we'll have enough people? Less than 6 months left 'til we cruise!

I've been wondering the same thing. I was going to give fish extenders to all my family members that will be on the cruise with us for Christmas, but held off because there seems to be so few of us.

Well, how about everyone who is wanting to do FE post and we can see if there are enough? That way we can reconfirm anyone who showed an interest previously.

Not from Miami (wish we were ), but....

We know we will be at WDW on the 4th & 5th -- staying at Bay Lake. Hoping to get down a few days prior -- but really can't even plan until the end of May due to the boys' baseball schedules. Ideally, we'd be there from July 1st until sailing. We have a few days left on our Disney Water Park Annual Passes.

Still deciding on what to do about park tickets -- our APs expired last summer. Might be time to get new APs -- if we end up going early, that's probably what we'll do.

We so can't wait for the cruise -- we've booked a few things -- a Remy brunch, a spa appointment. That's really been it. Need to finalize things on the excursions. May go outside DCL for those. Wish we had a little more time at the ports. Oh well, can't wait to try out the Fantasy.

We are heading up on the July 3 staying and Animal Kingdom Lodge. Any good suggestions for excursions for the two stops in Mexico?

getting ready to log on tonight to book our Palo/Remy/Spa and excursions. Can't believe it's that time already!!! My boys (13, 15 & 16) always enjoy meeting other kids on line first so if anyone is interested, let me know.

So we got everything we wanted except for a cabana on Castaway Cay. There was only one left and it was on Serenity Bay so we passed. We are doing Palo brunch and dinner and Remy brunch and dinner as well as the fishing excursion on Castaway Cay. Can't wait!

Totally agree Jim. I did not stay up until midnight. I did it about 7am. The only thing that might have helped with are the cabanas maybe.
