Gotcha! Hopefully you'll make it to the meet ok! There will be plenty of opportunities for trading later, and hopefully we'll see you and your daughter at the pin cart one evening.

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.
Awesome! Thanks!! We've been going back and forth. We used to do the length-of-stay passes but since we've had kids, that hasn't been practical. I'm not sure what we'll do now that the little one is old enough for the kids club. If she's like her sister, we'll only see her at bedtime which means plenty of time for the RFR!!

Just ordered more pins for trading on the cruise!! Can't wait to see what we got. Usually we decide we need to keep half of them, but then DD will trade the others over and over again.

Late to the game, not wanting to miss the boat!!

I checked here when we booked back in Oct and not much was going on. The holidays let it get away from me, but now that we have told the kids I have to get my act together. We would like to join the 4th FEE group. I am new to Disboards, so not sure how to get started. Help?

For those who asked about the fes and zip ties. We have always zip tied it.. usually your room steward will have scissors to cut it down.

Hi Alana (Harrisdreamteam) - Welcome back to the boards! It is easy to get busy at the holidays. I got you all set up for the FEE and emailed you to link for the document. Please let me know if you have trouble reaching it.

My kids were back to school today. I thought I would have lots of time to work on my FE gifts, but ended up picking up my house most of the day. Amazing what can happen to it when everyone is home and company is in town. YIKES! At least I am now organized again and plan to get busy tomorrow.

Aulani is super fun - use your points (but if you don't I would love to rent some!)

So we actually own a 2br/2ba condo across the street from Aulani (in the golf course at the resort) and we spend a LOT of time in Hawaii! I love Aulani and we have stayed there but only for a night at a time (we get two full 'days' to play that way) since our place is literally a 5 minute walk away :-)

If you go I can give you all a bunch of tips!
Aloha

That actually reminds me, though. On the years we cruise, I rent out my DVC points. I'm about to put them up for rent on the board and figured I'd let y'all know first. I like to rent to people I know (or at least have some connection with!) if I can. I have aulani points and Saratoga points but you can use them anywhere. PM me if anyone's interested in finding out ,ore!

Got the last items for my FEE gifts today. Going to start making them tomorrow. Weeeeeeeee!

Decisions - Decisions

My flights just got moved and now they don't work! Been trying to resolve. Now it looks like we will fly in late on 2/14 and staying at a hotel near the airport. At least this means I can work that day and use one less vacation day. The issue is the return. We planned to come back on 2/23 but now can't until 2/24. I'm looking to stay at the Hilton in Galveston as it is pretty reasonable and would allow us to enjoy the area Saturday evening. Now I need to figure out transportation. This has been the worst part. So not fun.

Anyone have recommendations for a shuttle service? 2 adults / 2 kids?

Wow. That is so awesome! My husband actually went to college in Hawaii and lived there a bit when he was young (military brat) so he's always telling me how great it is. We just haven't ever been able to cough up the $$ for the flight. Plus, I have to admit that putting two young kids (ok, and me too) on a flight that long is not appealing. It will definitely happen soon, though!

We have a system where we take a Disney world/land vacation, then a cruise, then a "different" vacation, then a cruise, etc. this ensures the kids get plenty of Disney time, I get plenty of cruise time, and we still make sure we see other parts of the country (and world eventually). On the years we cruise, I rent our points because booking the cruise through DVC is too expensive. :-)

On a totally different note, I have discovered a new obsession - magnets! Thanks to Jeff's links, I have been looking at / saving pics all day. :-o So much for getting work done!

LOVE the dress, and love the pirate duckie!! So cute!!

To ensure that you all totally understand how obsessed I've become with making magnets, I wanted to share one I found yesterday in case yall are more rational and haven't seen it yet. :-) Since we're all on the same sailing, you can use it too!



PW is DISfriends if you need it! :-)

I've actually created a schedule for myself today so that I make SURE I get some work done and don't spend more hours looking through magnet images!!

Hi Katie,

I am not sure why, but I can't see the graphic of the magnet. Once I get all 3 kids off to school, I should have 3 good hours to work on magnets and FE gifts today. So excited to see what everyone else is doing.

Super shuttel has a private van, I think it was around $155 each way. They also have town car service, it says it's for up to 3 people, but I don't see why they can't do 2 adults and 2 kids, town cars seat 5 people. It's a little cheaper. We are using Action Limo, but there are 12 of us and we are getting the limo bus, I know they have smaller vehicles too. Try looking into them. With all of my calling around trying to find transportation for our large group, they were they most affordable, so they smaller cars might be to.
