I'm glad Tyler Dean is doing better! That must have been scary.

I haven't thought about door magnets yet. Not sure what we will do yet.

Thanks, all of you, for the kind concern! I have new respect for my mother who had to deal with my premature brother going into febrile seizures whenever he was a baby and would run a high fever.

So, do all of you have your formal duds all ready? Tyler Dean and I look forward to dressing up -- never get to in "real life". And the portraits are so wonderful!

Ladies, I would love to see some of your dresses, if you have previous formal night pics and plan on wearing the same thing (like me!)

I second Gina about laminating small graphics and using stick on magnets and doing large graphics on magnetic sheets. I have never had anyone take my magnets or FE. We do empty the FE often so it wont be so tempting to passers by. Jeff- I love the Galveston magnet! I haven't run across that one. I use my paint program that came on the computer to "paint" over the existing words then I save the clean copy. I pull that up in Publisher and add text with the word art feature. For me the easiest way to get rid of the words is to copy some of the background color and paste it over the words. HTH
I am altering a "new-to-me" formal dress. It was probably a bridesmaid dress but it doesn't matter to me. I love it and it was VERY cheap!!! I will see about posting a pic later.
I just realized my door pics are on my old hard drive. I will see about getting those too. Here is one I just made. I need to remember how to post pics smaller....

Gina- that had to be beyond frightening for you as a parent! Glad to hear that it sounds like you are both recovering.

Welcome CalgaryFam! Let me know if you would like to be in the 4th group FEE. If you would like some additional ideas of things that would make good FE gifts, I do have a Pinterest Board where I have pinned FE ideas. http://pinterest.com/off2wdw/fe-disney-gifts/

Jeff – Your magnets are looking great. That is the one thing that I have not even got started yet, but you have me inspired now! My refrigerator went out last summer when I was gone and my DH managed to buy a new one that is not magnetic on the front. I had never heard of such a thing, but as a consequence, I have no place to organize my magnets when I do get them done.

Elmo2200 – Just love the framed one as a magnet! I totally need to get busy.

I do the full magnet sheets and then cut out the designs.

That is just adorable. I may have to use that idea. My hubby and I are celebrating 10 years. :-) I especially love the frame. So inspired by all of your great ideas! I'm sensing a(nother) trip to Walmart in my future - this time for magnetic paper!

I'll be wearing just a fancy top and black pants for formal night. My DH isn't coming with us so we aren't super concerned with taking portraits since they wouldn't have him in them. So we won't be going very formal.

I'm sure my kids would love to trade. I need to order another lot of pins off eBay so they have some to trade. We just got back from Disneyland and they traded a bunch All the ones they have are keepers.

Just looked at the menus and can not wait! I love DCL food. Now, I need to lose 10 pounds so I can put it back on while cruising. :-)

I couldn't find any pics of our previous doors so I put some of our old magnets on the fridge. I also got a pic of my dress. Lastly, looking through old cruise pics reminded me of a fun activity we did on two cruises. We had a pirate duckie with us and took pics of all the places he went.

I just ordered Tyler Dean and I 10 traders each yesterday. We're in the same boat as your kids -- traded out most of our traders at Disneyland in October and have pretty much only keepers left. I can't *wait* to get some new DCL pins -- I have two pages of those, and aside from my Belle ones they're my favorites.

It's kinda funny (or sad! lol) -- I've told Tyler Dean tons of times that if there's ever a fire and I'm not home, throw the cats in the carrier, grab the box of childhood momentos and photos, and for pete's sake grab our pins!!

You can order the Rainforest Room 1 day pass by phone or fax. The form is under Stateroom Gifts or something like that, under your reservation on the DCL website. Here is the info you need to order:

To Order Please Call: 1-800-601-8455
Hours of Operation: M-F 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sa-Sun 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Or Fax This Form To: 1-407-938-4288


There's been conflicting info on whether you can get a one-day pass once on the ship. I didn't want to take any chances so I got mine ahead of time. But since I've already purchased mine, others will probably be able to buy them on the ship with no problem.

Gina, we would love to do some trading later in the cruise, but we will not be ready that first afternoon. By the time I pick up DD from school (I'm signing her out at lunchtime) and drive down to Galveston, it will likely be 1 pm before we are on the ship. We'll be scrambling just to get to the 2 pm meet.
