When my daughter and I last cruised, she was almost 14 and had a great time e-mailing with some of the other girls in our group before the cruise started. They got to know each other a bit before the cruise then had fun hanging out in the Kid's Clubs with them during the cruise.

This is our third cruise so I'm happy to answer questions for you or anybody. Gina from Toronto is a veteran cruiser and probably has some great timps for all of us.

Thank you!!

Natalie and Jason's girls will be 14 and 11....how old are your kids??

Would you have any advice on how to make the 233 days go faster

In addition to the hot- Southwest Air opened up their ticket window through March 8th so I was able to get a decent fare for our flight down. Now I just have to be patient for the next set of dates so I can book our return but at least I have tickets to get us there!!

I hope everybody has been having a great summer. Great to see a few more peeps find our group.

Gina- glad you had fun with your Ft. Wilderness experience- what a blast to rent a golf cart!!

Keep having fun everybody!

Hey Liz.

The summer has been crazy hot here in Toronto too. Can't get over the temps, we are close to lake Ontario so am thankful for the breeze we get.

We looked at SWA as well as we always fly out of BUF. We may be driving this time tho. Not sure yet.

I cannot believe that aug is just about here, school will be starting and before you know it we will be cruisin'!! Yahoo

I am so happy to have found this group!! More people to share our excitement with!! It will be myself Gina, DH Brian, DS Athan (15), DD Kyra (11) also our wonderful friends Natalie, Jason and their two daughters as well! We are all from Ottawa.

Bye for now!!
WELCOME.

You must be so excited about your first cruise!! It's always so much fun to travel with friends. My dd Jenna is 11 and my ds Jacob will be 14 so our kidlets will probably run into eachother at the kids clubs. Both of mine have met friends through the disboards meets and are always so excited to meet them onboard.

There are lot of Canadians here, I guess we are all taking advantage of our march break.

Let me know if you would like to be added to the FE list.

Gina.

When we were on the TA cruise we were able to take advantage of the 14 days to really enjoy so much on the ship. I have to say that although expensive, bingo is so much fun. It's not at all serious, it's quite silly actually and with a Disney spin on it. Plus my kidlets could come too which my dd loved. The until We meet again show always makes me cry. I do love Disney .

I wish we had more time on the ship as it my first on the dream and I know 4 days will not be enough. Those repeat dream cruisers will have to give us some tips. .

Hi all! As my friend Gina (gina524) mentioned, we will be cruising with them on this cruise! So excited!!! This is our 2nd Disney cruise. We travelled on the Magic back in Feb/Mar 2010 and fell in love with cruising.
I'm still on the fence about the FE list. I'm leaning towards it but looking into gift ideas first.

A couple of questions:
1) What is the cut of date for that decision?

2) How do you add to the bottom of your replies with past Disney trip dates?

Thanks!

Natalie, DH Jason, DD (14) Taryn, DD (11) Ainsley

Hi there

1. There hasn't been a cut off date set yet. It is a pretty small list at this point but I know we will need final numbers so people can get there FE's in order. We sail March 10th, would February 1st be a good cut off or do people need more time?

Those that are participating, could you share your thoughts in this please.

2. In the blue tool bar on the DIS board page, click on userCP, then in the side bar, click on "edit signature", then type away. HTH.

Let me know if you decide to join and I will add you to the FE list.

Gina

Not much missed, I think everyone has enjoyed the amazing summer we have had weather wise.

My kidlets go back September 4th (here in Toronto, Canada).

We are heading to Universal on Friday so looking forward to that before we get back into a regular routine again.

I thought I responded to this the other night, but I guess not.

No, we don't have a FB group. Yet?

We too are from Ontario-- About 4 hours south of Toronto . Near Windsor. We are so excited for this cruise! It will be our 3rd. But first time for my daughter's boyfriend who is joining us. We also went to Universal a few weeks ago..my DD and I with some friends. That was our first visit to Universal..it made me miss Disney terribly We are deciding on the FE We have never done the FE and we are just concerned about having room to pack stuff. This is a silly ?? but do we bring an item for each day or just one day? Not sure how it worked entirely.
