Ok, now I'm intrigued. I'm about to go search Magic Quest on YouTube!

We've never actually participated in any of the games because we were almost always sailing as WDW CMs so we couldn't. Since we've cruised with little ones the last two times, late night events were out. Maybe this year will be our year. :-)

like others have said we are up for meeting up but don't want to commit. Last cruise we did a martini tasting class which was so much fun. Hope they have it again. That would be a fun meet up (i realize not everyone drinks). Cove cafe is a great place to meet one morning. Or if there are any runners I'm always out for a run around deck 3 or 4 (I can't remember which deck is for running around)

Glad that it sounds like we can count you in for the Magic Quest team, Jeff. I have to imagine that some of those people have cruised before and actually come a little prepared for all the fun.

Gina – I’m decent at geography and since I know nothing about pop culture, you and I would make a good trivia team. Now we just need a history buff.

I hope you will be able to join in some of the adult games this cruise Katie. That is the one thing that my husband and I both love about cruising. With active boys we don’t get that much alone time in our daily lives and this gives us a chance to really enjoy being a couple.

Gina, I like to think I am good at most trivia (except sports) so count me in for that!

I am also interested in any of the alcohol tastings except beer. I have to look into the Magic Quest a little bit more before I make a decision about that. But my curiosity is certainly piqued!

Woo hoo!! So glad there are more of you who like trivia... We're going to have ourselves a real team! This is going to be so much fun.

I think that's a huge part of what I love about cruising... not only am I not on dry land -- which makes me unspeakably happy right there -- but it's like summer camp for grownups. I could spend a month onboard and be thrilled.

Gina - your comment about it being "summer camp" for grown ups has me dying!!! Maybe that's why I love cruising so much! I never got to go to camp as a kid!

Julie, My SIL and I met in Cove Cafe every morning on our last cruise. It was such a nice atmosphere to have a good cup of coffee. Pretty sure we will be keeping the same routine this time...as far as the running, I will wave to you every lap you run by.

We played Magic quest on one of our cruises and had a blast...it was so much fun. Match your mate is a lot of fun to watch too!

Hi all,

Does anyone who's attended a "tasting" know if a non-drinker can just come and keep an attendee company? I can't drink (migraines) but DH loves martinis, beer, wine, etc. and I'm sure he'd love to attend, but he doesn't want to ditch me. I'd be happy to hang out and chat, but I don't want to have to pay and DH can't drink double. (well, he could I suppose, but it might not be pretty)

We are now officially on this cruise! We had booked it, but I didn't have the cash come pif day. But today I saw *GT rates, and we are booked, paid, and ready to go!!

And its my birthday on this cruise! Feb 19, the day we go to WDW. I want to dance with Mickey and Goofy!!

Gina, I'm up for trivia. Just let me know where to go and when.

Beth, we'd like to be a part of the FEE, but we have a GTY cabin. Can we still participate? We did FEEs on our last cruise, and it was so much fun! I'll pm you with our details.

Also, looking for anyone with a dd11. I thought I saw some earlier in the thread. My dd11 will be much happier is she has buddies.

Can't wait to meet all y'all in 59 days!

The ones I have been to there has always been one or two non drinkers at the tastings so I'm pretty sure it's ok. Don't know that for a fact but I know it's been allowed in the past.

We are GTY too. I don't know why. Guess that is the way our travel agent did it this time. We have never been GTY before so I'm not familiar with the process. Do you know when they give us our room assignments? Once we have our assignment I'll update the FE info.
