I would LOVE a Facebook group - I'm always on Facebook -

Any volunteers to create/maintain it?? LOL!

I'm starting to get the planning crazies. Started a research BINDER! Printed out all the Disney excursions so I can easily (ha!) hopefully sit down and evaluate which ones I'm interested in....

I've already decided that we will be flying home from Seattle. Going to ride the Amtrak down to Seattle so that we can be tourists and see the Chihuly Glass Garden (I'm a Chihuly FREAK!) and the Space Needle. Any other places we MUST do in Seattle???

Welcome to the thread! How many of you will be sailing on the Wonder?

Since we seem to have some interest in the Facebook group I'll gladly create it but first we need to come up with a name for our group. Any suggestions? Get creative! Something like The 2013 Wonder 9er's (play on 49er's - I know it's corny but just an example). Everyone can contribute and then we'll pick something the majority likes. So let's hear 'em!

Hi All,

we will be joining you on this cruise. It's going to be our first time to Alaska, second time on the Wonder, third Disney cruise and fourth cruise (at least for me).

I haven't started planing yet, but we will probably drive to Vancouver from San Francisco with some stopovers on the way. Any recommendations?

Looks like great minds think alike!!! We were on the Fantasy with you last week....still very sad to be home!! However, booking the July 2013 cruise to Alaska has helped give us something new to look forward to!!! Already starting the countdown!!!

The Fish Extender sounded like fun. Has anyone set that up or is it too early?

Hello, you can count us in for FE! We just did it for the first time on the Fantasy cruise last week and we loved it. So many wonderful gifts and the kids had a blast giving just as much as they enjoyed receiving. It's like Christmas every day!!!

How about "Wonders of Alaska ~13" for the Facebook group?

Very nice!! So, perhaps it's a bit premature, but I just finished designing my family FE gift. LOL!!! See - told you I was a bit crazy!

Been absent for a while - work was/is busy and just got back from 8 day trip to WDW. With that behind me I can now focus a bit more on the cruise.

For the Facebook page, I like Wonders of Alaska '13 too. Do we have any other suggestions? We still have lots of time so post whatever comes to mind.

Also, has anyone been to Vancouver before? Considering adding a few nights either front/back to check out the area. What is there to do with kids (ages 10 - 16)? Haven't spent much time researching the subject yet but thought someone out here might have a few suggestions.

I set up a FB page as a placeholder for now but we can always change it. If you would like me to add you to the FB page, send me a PM with the following info:

1) Your DISboard name
2) Your email address


I will only use these to find you on FB and send you an invite to the group. If I can find you on FB, I will send you a friend request. If I can't, I'll send you the link to the group so you can request membership.

Again, please send it to me as a PM unless you want your details out here for the world to see.

Thanks everyone!
- Tony

I know the feeling with work and vacation but I'm trying to start focusing a little more, too. Just found out one of my coworkers is leaving tomorrow on an Alaska cruise on Princess, so I've already warned her that I'll be hitting her up for information when she returns. I haven't even started thinking about excursions yet.

I'm good with Wonders of Alaska '13 but I will continue to give it some thought. I'll PM you my info for Facebook.

Have never been to Vancouver but another coworker is there on his honeymoon right now, so I'm sure I'll be hitting him up for info, too. At this point we're only considering flying in a day early.

CHIdadOF3, I tried to PM you my info for the Facebook page and it said I had 0 posts and could not PM because you have to have 10. I actually had 5 before this one but still not 10. I tried to email you but it said you have to have 15 posts. Any suggestions?

I had to reset some things and forgot what my username was. Now I am harrisonsmeme and I used to be Almeda. Guess that's why they said I had 0 posts. Maybe I just need to post 8 more times.
