Glad to see that someone else has joined. It was hard to find the thread at first because it has November 18, 2011 - hopefully it will be fixed soon and we will have more followers.

Looking forward to the sea days and the tequila tasting too
Yay! Another has joined this very small group. Welcome!

Welcome to all the new cruisers! We're gonna have to start a roll call so we can keep everyone's name straight FE list... Cruise meets... boy oh boy! Lots of planning to do.

Just so you know, I'm leaving on a MR on April 1. This will be our first MR. If you have any preliminary questions or things you want me to check out, let me know and I'll make a list and get back to you when we return. I'm in full planning mode since 3 weeks from right now, I will be on the Wonder.

Had anyone taken a cruise over Thanksgiving on Disney before? I wonder what if they just add Turkey to the menu or what. Hmmm. Not that it matters, I'm still going to go.

Looking forward to chatting.

Linda

Hey! Welcome Aboard! And thanks for finding us and pointing out the error. I've posted a message over there for this to be fixed and I'll get a message when it is fixed Even though it is listed under the 2012 cruise meets, it still should say 2012 and not 2011.

Thanks! I love how you have your FE list set up. I was wondering how that worked - now I have lots of time to decide what I am going to do. Looking forward to sharing turkey day with a disney family.

3 more rooms added to this cruise! I just booked two days ago and we're NOT changing now!!

We were trying to coordinate with other family members in another state and the first week of December is rough to take kids out of school for. Most schools seem to schedule all their "Christmas performances", etc at the beginning of the month knowing as it gets closer to Christmas they will lose some kids to family plans.

All that said, we are absolutely looking forward to Thanksgiving on the cruise! I don't recall a Thanksgiving where I didn't have to cook or at least help clean up afterwards! (In our family if you don't help cook, you're polite enough to do the dishes darn it!)

We are myself, DH, DGF, DD(14), DD(11); then my girlfriend's Mom, Sister and two young siblings: DB13 & DS 11.

For DH & our girls this will be our 3rd cruise (having cruised on the Wonder & Magic previously), but it's been 6 years since our last so we're just as excited as the newbies, which all the rest of our travelling group are.

I am definately interested in the FE exchange if we get one going. This will be my very first FE exchange!

Hi everyone,
I've scheduled for my family to take this cruise. We originally had Christmas week scheduled but it got cancelled. The OBC was a sweet deal though. Unless anything comes up, we should be going on this MR cruise.

Welcome to the newcomers! I just got off the ship yesterday after doing the MR over our Spring Break! Wonderful time, as usual. Loved Cabo and can't wait to go back. I thought it would be a bummer being in Cabo 2 days in a row, but no. I can't wait to go back.

Didn't cook for a week, so fits in with the plan of no cooking.

I guess we should start a roll call and a FE gift exchange list. We did the FE gift exchange on this last trip and got some interesting gifts....from some pretty neat coasters, magnets, embroidered tote bag...note pads...and of course some candies. It was a manageable group so no problem doing it again. I can do it unless someone else would like to volunteer.

Gus, if you don't mind sharing the info, what kind of OBC did Disney give you when they cancelled Christmas week? I imagine it was a great disappointment for you and your family. It's a shame that Disney will not be doing the MR's any longer. I understand why though. Maybe after a few years when demand is a little higher. I'd like to see them do Avalon/Catalina Island, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo.

I'm very curious as to where she is going in the Fall of 2013. A little bit of time in dry dock might be warranted, more so in another 15 months. In the 2 rooms we had, many small maintenance issues were seen so some TLC overall to let maintenance catch up might be in order. Nothing major just many small ones. I'm going back either way

At any rate, I am trying to catch up on my 10 day hiatus from the computer. Everyone have a great week!
Linda

Hi Linda,
I got an extra $500 OBC for a 7-night cruise. It would be less if I did a 3/4 night cruise. Now I have a total of $700 OBC. Well, my wife sure loves Palo and the spa.

Glad to see that you had a great time. I am ready for the FE whenever it is setup. This is my 2nd DCL cruise, but my first FE, so if you want to organize, that would be great.

That's a great deal of OBC....let me know if you need some help spending it I hope that Thanksgiving week is a no school week for anyone attending school in your family. I know my sis, Goofy's_Gal would have preferred an "off peak" week but I can't take the kids out of school. I was scheduled on the 12/15/12 Fantasy but changed to this one and that's a good thing. The kids get out for winter break on 12/21 and the school will conveniently schedule finals on 12/20 & 12/21. Glad to have changed it to Thanksgiving week!

I'll get a FE list and Roll Call going soon. I may want some assist from Goofy's_Gal though.

Awesome! We'll get that going shortly.

On our last cruise, the FE list was a smaller one, 21 families so very manageable. Judging by the roll call here thus far, it will even be even smaller on this cruise. That will allow people to really get creative! We will probably have a few guideline rules on the FE gifts. Not being picky or prissy, but unless your candy is special or packaged special...a bag of candy does not make a creative FE gift. I hope people don't think I'm being petty but some thought should go into the FE gift. It doesn't have to be one per person, it can be one per room, so very doable. We did have some salt water taffy gifts that were packaged in a fun way on our last trip. I've also had fortune cookies in the past with a special message inside. We also had someone who filled popcorn bags, attached a Toy Story ticket so you had treats to take to the movies. I tend to find though that the candy is left behind for the room steward. A nice gesture indeed, but this is not a token to take home from your trip. Your thoughts are welcome on this also as we would want the FE experience to be a positive one for the participants.

I really wish I was cruising this week or at least next month. I've got the just got off cruise blues

I would be alright with this idea, with one exception (other than the adding a cute "Disney" decoration/etc). If the candy is a "regional" treat from where you live, I'd love to have it be included. Candy from Europe from European travellers, maple candy from Vermont/NH/etc would be perfectly ok in my book.

I grew up on the East Coast, but have been in CA for over a decade now. While I can get tons of Japanese treats and even a lot of European stuff, I miss some of the Pennsylvania Dutch/Northeast stuff that's harder to find out here. Just my opinion.

Agreed. Like I said, we had 2 people give out salt water taffy, regional here, packaged in 2 very fun and creative ways. Special treats I thing would be fine. I'm pretty much talking about a baggie full of every day pinata type of candy/chocolates. Special is special. And if anyone here is from the Northeast, bring some of those maple treats!
