Ok-it worked that time, & I was able to edit it. Thanks!

We just booked...and are really looking forward to the cruise!

We've got two boys (ages 7 and 8) that are going to be very happy when they find out where they're going Christmas morning.

We cancelled our scheduled March trip to Disney World in favor of the cruise. Started doing some Galveston research and my head is spinning...good thing we've got time to figure everything out.

This will be our second cruise but our first Disney cruise!

There are so many people surprising their kids! I'm way too excited myself for that! We've already made a mickey-themed paper chain counting down the days!! 100 days and counting!!!!!

Yay!

Literally booked this cruise last night - YIKES! Won't feel real till we've paid in full, but I'm so excited!

We will be surprising the kids with the cruise as their Christmas gift (and ours, too for that matter!)

I'm definitely considering the FEE - but this will be our 1st time cruising, so I may need some hand-holding and help figuring everything out, LOL!

I suppose I should introduce our family - I'm Lori, DH is Matt, DS is Caleb (9) and DD is Ella (7)

Now to immerse myself in all things Disney Cruise! If only that pesky thing called "work" weren't around, I could accomplish so much!

Hey Lori! Boys are plentiful on this cruise so I'm glad to see another girl my daughter's age coming along!

It's our first time doing the FEE too so we're super excited. Definitely NOT the first time cruising though. :-) Have fun exploring everything and let us know if you have questions!!

We are in double digits! We set sail in 99 days!

Welcome to all the new cruisers! It looks like all the kids will have plenty of new friends to make...I'm still waiting for someone my oldest DDs age...she will be a month shy of 19 and this will be her first DCL that she can't go in the clubs. She is excited about being able to go into all the adult only areas though, not so sure how I feel about that.
We have been on 6 DCL, 5 of them out of Port Canaveral, so I feel like a first timer trying to figure out all the pre-cruise planning. I can do pre-cruise plans out of PC blindfolded, but I feel completely lost going out of Galveston. We don't know if we should stay near the airport or head for the port, rent a car for the week and park it(which is cheaper than 1 way rentals) or take a hired van...so much to decide!
We have done the FEE before, so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

Talking Ha! Ha! Gave our 11 YO a hint (this is a Christmas present)

Told her the "present" was "born" in 1998, but isn't alive! She is SOOOO confused-it's hilarous!!!

That's awesome! Refer to the "present" as a "she" (all ships are female)...that should get her pretty good too! lol

We are surprising our kids, too.

I am super excited that you have a little girl about one of our DD's ages! We have an 11 YO DD, a 6 YO DD, & a 5 YO DS.

Welcome!

Hi everyone,

We are at 10 families (12 cabins) for the FEE. I am thinking that it would be nice to get a final count by Thanksgiving. That way people have time to be working on their gifts as the holidays are always such a busy time. I know that some of the newly booked cruisers expressed an interest here on the boards. If you would like to participate, please PM me or email me at beth@sitesandsounds.com and I will get you set up.

The information needed for the FEE is family last name, adult names, children names with ages, where you are from, and special celebrations you have on board, t-shirt sizes, and if you have an email address that you use for Google I can add that and then you will be able to edit the document yourself.

For the people new to this board or to the FEE, I have a Pinterest Board that I pin homemade FEE ideas on and have a few Fish Extenders pictured that people have made or sell on Etsy. http://pinterest.com/off2wdw/fe-disney-gifts/

I am beyond excited to see the double digit count down now! It is impressive how many of you are managing to wait until Christmas to tell your kids. I was bursting at the seams the day we booked and it was a secret for about 30 seconds.

My DH and I are in Michigan for the weekend, so will not be online as much as normal, but will get back to everyone who wants to join in the FEE as quick as possible.

Beth
