I guess you are only allowed one disney promotion at a time and the KSF was way better than the OBCs I lost. I still get to keep the credit from my travel agent b/c hers isn't considered Disney. Typically we don't use a travel agent but for our Disney cruises I do so I can get OBC.
Hmmmm....that's very interesting! Maybe I should look into it!

Also, I just tried searching for the FB group and I couldn't find it. :-( Could definitely be me, though!

Julie, I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but I can't seem to find the facebook group. Is there a link you can post here that I can click on? Sorry for not being good at facebook. Do you always use the same travel agency or just look for one with the best OBC?

See if this works. http://www.facebook.com/groups/202895766512925/

I am not FB savvy either - don't know why I volunteered to start the page b/c I don't know what I am doing.

I use the same travel agent just because she has all our information and knows us by now (third Disney cruise). I got her name from someone on Disboards. I used her for our first cruise and when we booked our 2nd onboard we her name down. The only difference I have noticed is that if we want to change our cruise dates or make any changes they have to go through her. Not a big deal in my opinion and worth the it for $150 or 200 OBC. If we do have changes I just call her or email her and say - we can't cruise when we originally booked change it to this date. If you want her information let me know and I will PM you.

Thanks for doing the facebook group, Julie. I was able to get there using the link and you should have received a request from me to add me to the group. Once you approve me, then I should be able to post. Keep in mind that I am not the 90 year old in the picture, that is my grandma. The picture is from Christmas 1971 and I am the little girl on the left.

P.S. I am a little bigger now!

Well, I finally got around to paying our cruise off and made reservations for Palo brunch and dinner, and reserved the first bus to the Magic Kingdom.
I also requested to be added to the FB page.
Does anyone know which hotels in Galveston that you can see the port from?

I've stayed at the Harbor House in Galveston before. It is great! You can easily walk to the port from it.

Ok-for some reason, FB let me join the group once, then must have deleted me from the group, because I can no longer post on the page.

Kim, I think Facebook may be having issues. I had the same type of thing happen several times yesterday or I could only see the top post and not even respond to that. Then this morning when I try to get to Facebook at all it says they are having technical issues and to try again later.

Good thing I am not that big of a facebook user.

The Facebook group flaked on me too. This morning I woke to find I was no longer a member. I clicked the Join button again so you might have to approve me again unless it corrects itself.
