Can't wait

Hi everyone I am new to this board. Just booked this cruise and we are so excited. We live in Miami but we are sick of Bahamas/carribean cruises. This will be our third Disney cruise and 8th cruise total. Traveling with us will be my husband and I, our three kids (1,3,5) and my parents.

Hi everyone - just back from our Dream cruise. Had a fantastic time and I think we convinced a few friends from the "It's All Gary's Fault Cruise" (including Gary) to join us on this one.

Glad to hear you had a good time Mary. But then how can it be a bad time if you are on the ship and away from work?!?

Ahoy there, Mateys!!!

I'm Gary from the "It's all Gary's fault!" cruise Mary mentioned and we booked this cruise while we were on the Dream! My wife, Saint Gail (because she's my wife) and I will be taking our eighth DCL cruise with you folks. We're really looking forward to this itinerary, especially the overnight stay in San Francisco since Gail has relatives in nearby Modesto.

Need I say more?

Welcome Gary! You guys are going to love him! If we're nice he might even teach everyone the game.

Ahoy there, Mateys!!!

How the Swan/Pirate game works:

To get a swan;
Every 99th post = 1 ES (Elizabeth Swan)
Every 499th post = 2 ESes
Every 999th post = 3 ESes

To get a pirate;
Every 100th post = 1 Pirate
Every 500th post = 2 Pirates
Every 1000th post = 3 Pirates

OK, In the interest of fair play and WWWD (What would Walt do), I would like to propose some simple rules for the Swan and Pirate game. If there is only one swan/pirate at stake and you don't have one yet, please wait until 95 posts are in for that run, then GO NUTS WITH THE POSTS!!! Also, when there's more than one Swan/Pirate on the line, please don't do the multiple post thing. That's more in the spirit on the game, to get more people involved in the thread. OK, I'm off my soapbox now. These are the rules we had on the other thread I had the game on.

I hope we have a great time with the game.

Your Humble Pirate Master,
Gary

Ahoy there, Mateys!!!

ES (Elizabeth Swan)Update!!! Parley!!!

OKWMEMBER got the 99th post and therefore earns an ES!!!

Every 99th post = 1 ES
Every 499th post = 2 ESes
Every 999th post = 3 ESes

The current score is:

OKWMEMBER---------- 1 ES 99th

The next milestone is at the 199th post and is worth 1 (One,Uno) ES!!!

Looked back and couldn't find any info so I'll put it out there. Would the group be interested in a FB page? We did one for the "It's All Gary's Fault" group and it worked out great. We still posted here, but honestly posted a lot more there. It was a private group so people felt more comfortable sharing pictures and plans. We were even able to do private group chats on Saturday nights leading up to the cruise which was great fun.

You can have a group set up one of three ways:

Open - anyone can see and join (no real security).

Closed - only group members can see postings but anyone can search for it and ask to join.

Secret - only group members can see postings and you would have to know the link (which could still be posted here) to find it.

We started out closed but then switched to secret as people seemed to pop out of the woodwork at the last minute and it made others uncomfortable not knowing who they were really talking to.

You can also have anyone have access to accept people or have only the admins do it (again that's what we did at the end). If you do this I would suggest at least 2-3 admins as we all get busy and not everyone can be on every day.

Open to your thoughts and questions.

Hi All!

Well as of today I paid the increased deposit for this cruise so we are now officially onboard with everything! We are: My DH Mel, My DSS Scott 27, My DDIL Susan 27, My DGS Justin 6, My DGD Catherine 5 and Me, Tisza :-)

This will be the third cruise ever for the DH and me and the first ever for the rest of the crew. The DH and I just returned from a week long stay with our extended friendmly (the same folks we went to Alaska with last year) (Hi Gary and Gail my swan has pride of place on the bookcase in our living room where I keep all my really important things) at beautiful Aulani (trip report is forthcoming).

Count us all in for FE's!

I am also offering to host a pre-cruise meet and greet BBQ before we set sail. We live in San Antonio Heights/Upland about 45 minutes from Disneyland.

At the moment we are in 6141 & 6143 and are slated for late seating. I am hoping we will keep late seating so we don't have to get up at the crack of dawn for character breakfast and especially on disembarkation day.

Who is doing the logo for this cruise? Do we have a motto yet? I am happy to volunteer if folks are interested ?

Well, it is getting pretty late so I had best close for now.

Take care all, help lots of people and have a "Wonder"ful day!

Tisza
