I am so incredibly sorry to hear this news. I am sending you good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery from this disease. I sure do hope it works that you can go though. I think that happiness, laughter and relaxation is the best medicine and when Disney is involved its just magical.

Anyone getting in planning mode? We have opened up a US account and are making a deposit every payday. The exchange rate has been very good! Flights, hotel and car rental are all booked. Might booked an excursion on CC for our DS 13 and his buddy who is also on the cruise. Tandem parasailing maybe?

So sorry to hear this- I'll keep positive thoughts headed your way and hope we'll see you on the cruise and we can help celebrate having all this behind you!!

I'm always in planning mode!!! I've got our flights booked too and since we're doing park time before/after- our resort stay is all set too. Even our dining is all set. I'm still toying with what to do for our FE exchange gift so that is the next thing I'm working on.

I bet the boys would have a blast doing the tandom parasailing and something they will remember forever!

Happy planning!

Planning for FE

Yes, I'm planning as well, have been for a while now. Cruise all paid in full, waiting for 11-10 so I can start planning excursions online. Hope weather is beautiful for our 1st cruise! Would love to spend some time at Disney World afterwards, but have to drive back to Texas for kids to get back to school. We were at the Polynesian Resort last year week of Thanksgiving.

Hi. should be alot of Canadians aboard being its March break for many school boards. On our last trip to Nassau we jumped on a local bus ( Jitney I believe) and headed towards Cable Beach, went to an old fort, found a public beach, did not swim just took a look. Took another bus back downtown. This time we will walk towards The Queens Staircase. Some travel books have walking tours and I found some online. Will do some shopping and head back to the Dream and hit the pools before supper!

Formal night on 4 night Dream?

I'm trying to figure out what to wear for dinner, I would like to dress up but have read where the 4 night Dream most folks do not dress up what can I expect to see.

I've only cruised twice before- once a 4-night on the Wonder and the second was a 4-night on the Dream. My recollection is that on 'formal night' there are some people that DO go way formal but then I think the majority were dressed for a nice night out rather than casual dress that is worn the other nights. My daughter and I were both in dresses with cardigans/wraps- like afternoon wedding attire rather than 'black tie' wedding.

One thing that was nice to do is that the ships photographers were set out in the Atrium doing photo sessions with backdrops- no characters- just the chance to get a family photo session done when everybody was all dressed up. Not sure if they still do that but the definitely did it two years ago.

Hope that helps!

Hi Fellow Cruisers!!

How is everybody doing?? Our cruise is getting closer and closer and with all the holiday craziness- this month is going to just zip by bring our cruise all the closer!

I got an e-mail today from Disney Cruise Line letting me know my cruise is getting closer and that mid-Dec I can sign up for excursions. It was exciting to realize with that e-mail it really is coming fast! Plus- I just paid off our cruise so we're good to go!

I find it really interesting that there isn't a single DIS-er on the 3/7 cruise- that poor cruise doesn't have ANY link to a meet! I'm happy we have ours- even if it is a tad slow moving.

Do any of you have girls who will be 15/16 on our sailing? My DD will be turning 16 on the cruise and I know she would like to 'meet' some girls on FB before we cruise and then have them to hang out with a bit during our sailing.

Hope everybody is starting to get excited!!

Liz
