Yay!!! One year from now we'll be crusin'!!

My DD and I will be on this cruise and are so excited. This will be our third Disney cruise (2nd on the Dream) and my daughter will be turning 16 during our cruise.

Looking forward to reading this thread over the next year as we get ready to sail!

We'll be doing some park time before and after the cruise too.

Happy planning!!

Great!! Me too! Maybe people can post if they are interested in the FE and I can start a list. Let me know how many, ages. Don't worry about stateroom numbers at this point. We can add those later


Thanks

I just booked this cruise. Had to move to this one from the 7 day that leaves on March 9. I'm a bowler and that cruise would cause me to miss 2 Saturdays as there aren't flights that would get me back in time to bowl.

Not sure on room yet as my TA is still in process of switching it over but I would like to be added to the FE list for the cruise

Hi All!!

Nice to see a few more peeps joining our group!

My daughter and I are totally excited to participate in a FE for our group so sign us up! Liz and Wyeth (daughter who will turn 16 on the Monday during our cruise).

We also just found out that she'll need knee surgury for a torn ACL at the end of the summer. One of her first questions was if this would impact our Disney trip (both from a financial and recovery impact). Luckily- I was able to say 'no' on both counts. It will be sooo good to have this trip to look forward to as her fall will mean no soccer and lots of physical therapy. Poor kid!

So by March- we'll both be totally psyched to be on our cruise and have some Disney time!!

What are people looking forward to the most? Both my daughter and I love the restaurants!! Can't wait to have that sail away drink in my hand too!

Hope everybody is having a good spring so far!!

Liz

That must be tough for her to not be able to play soccer. Having the cruise will at least be something to look forward to though and to celebrate her sweet 16, how wonderful!

I can't wait to check out the restaurants as well. I am not looking forward to just 4 days. We did the transatlantic on the magic for 14 days so this will be so quick. We love the magic so I hope the Dream still has that "feel" to it. We went on a carnival ship and it was huge and I didn't like how big it was. I also can't wait to get to CC.

I will add you to the FE list!

Have a great Earth Day!!

Gina

Glad it all got sorted out. I love AKL!! So great that you own there. It is beautiful!

I added you to the FE list!

WOW...14 days on the Magic...how awesome!!! 4 days will just feel like a blink...but it is better than no days I guess!

We have sailed once on the Wonder and then last year on the Dream. Yes it will initially feel bigger and the hallways go on forever especially when delivering FE goodies but we like both ships for different reasons. The only consistent complaint I've heard about the Dream has been about the size of the pool...that and people stalking out deck chairs by the pool at 7 am in the morning and keeping them all day. As long as you know those might be the challenges- one can work around them and not let it impact your time on the ship.

We love CC too but I always worry we'll have some 'incident' and be one of THOSE cruises who don't get to dock at CC!!! I don't want to get too excited and have it not happen. At this point, we've been twice so my worry is over and if we can't dock...at least we've been before!

Love talking and planning our trips...makes the days leading up to the trip (no matter how far away) go more quickly!

Have a good week!

Liz
