So excited! I finished my first test version of the FEE gifts we're making.

I was wondering, though. These are more geared towards kids. Do you make stuff for the grown-ups too?

Can't wait to see what you made!

It is really up to you how you give. Some people just do a cabin gift, others only give to the kids, some give something to everyone, some people give just once while other may drop things off on more then one day. No real rules. It is just for the fun and people give in the way that is right for them.

I have been working on my gifts this week too. Although, I should go back and get the Fish Extenders finished that I started too. Can't seem to stay focused with all this Disney dreaming!

We have always done the 7 day cruise not the 8 so I wasn't sure how the dinner schedule goes. Usually one night is pirate night and one night is captains feast (or something like that - seafood). Does anyone know which nights those are? I am going to book Palo and I don't want to book it on either of those nights. Any insight?

My husband was asking me about this today. I have been researching it trying to find the most cost effective way to get there but I am having a hard time. Hiring a shuttle service or a car is a lot more expensive then I thought. Would love it if someone on the cruise was on our same flight and needed transportation and we could share a van. Not sure if it would work but it crossed my mind.

I know pirate night is February 20th. I know because that's our anniversary. I decided to go ahead and book Palo that night anyway since DD swore she didn't care. She'll be eating in the kids club every night, I'm sure. :-/

As for a "cruise night", I'm not sure about that one. I know they usually do a formal night but I haven't heard which night that will be.

Isn't that an "at sea" day?

Julie, Facebook is working for me now.

We decided that I would drive in as the car rental and shuttle situation was crazy from the airport.

If anyone needs a good business idea, here it is. Affordable shuttle service or open a car rental location in Galveston that does not charge a crazy amount to drop the car there. I mean, if you think about it... Nearly everyone that rents a car to come down from Houston will also want to pick that car back up to go back to Houston at the end of the cruise, so it is not like you would end up with a zillion cars in Galveston. None of the car rental companies that I could find in Galveston were open past noon and Saturday and all were closed on Sunday.

If your business catered to the cruise passengers and you gave great customer service.... You could have a million dollar business!

All registered and booked. Yay one more thing done.


I have to say transportation to the port has been the toughest thing to plan this time.

We got everything we wanted-which was mostly an early bus to Epcot.

Seeming more real!

We couldn't check in early last night. We could do everything else, but not that, so we'll look into that again today, I'm sure!

I couldn't register last night either. I could only do activities. But it worked this morning and I was still able to get 1100 port check in
