Thanks for the pics WDRL! I saw the weather delay noted on the Disney website last night. That must have been some fog! I hope if we experience a similar delay, that we're the group already on the ship!

As much as I love cruising this time of year, the fog possibility is the worst thing about it. We got delayed on Voyager a few years ago because of fog -- didn't get onboard until almost 8pm, and then we couldn't leave Galveston until around 2am. Missing that whole first day was awful.

Got lucky on our last cruise, and I have my fingers crossed for this cruise!!

Luet02 - Thanks for posting that you had emailed me. My outlook filter had put it in the junk folder. Ugh! I got you all entered and emailed you back with the link.

Just in case - If there is anyone else that emailed me to sign up for group 4 and you have not heard back from me, please let me know.

Thanks,
Beth

Thanks, got it! Looks good! Yeah, I thought that there was someone else from Canada (calgaryfam)? that was signing up for FEE #4?

Anyone else from Canada coming? (Come on, I know you're out there!)

I then looked through this massive thread:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....t=door+magnets
Tons of ideas, and the OP, milliepie, has links in her signature taking you to her file site, where I got most of the images

I dropped the image into a Word document and added in word art to customize. I filled in full 8-1/2 x 11 magnetic sheets then cut out from there after printing. I should have tagged all the designs with the cabin# to dissuade any passer bys from helping themselves. I will probably write something on the back of the ears in silver sharpie.

I bought 2 packs of 5 magnetic sheets, and that was plenty for me. I ended up wasting one as it jammed in my printer and generally mucked the whole sheet up. The ink appears to be smudge free and they came out better than I thought.

The smaller name tags are on magnetic business cards, and I made one for each person in my FEE group as one of their gifts.

Cheers,
Jeff

I totally love the Yoda\Mickey Bar one!!! We are obsessing over Mickey bars. I would love to copy this idea if you don't mind. Where can I get it, how do I edit it???

I just ordered a laminator for magnet making. I've never done door decorations before. I'm excited!

I didn't know this. Would we do this as another port adventure?

Fortunately, fog related delays aren't that common, but Murphy's Law can rear its ugly head at any time. That is one reason why we prefer to arrive at our embarkation port a day early when we fly.

On another board, it was reported that the Crown Princess left about 12:10 AM this morning. The Disney Magic, which was berthed behind the Crown, left around 12:37 AM. I wonder if either ship will have to modify its itinerary to make up for the lost time.

Yes, you select a time and a Park as one of your port excursions for February 19. You only book the bus ride to WDW; you can't reserve a return bus or time.

Yes, it is a port adventure for the Port Canaveral day. It's included in your cruise fare, but you need to choose time/park. My understanding is you do not need to choose your return time to the ship in advance. DCL gives you a listing of bus departures from each park and you choose when you want to return.

Here is the blank I found. You can add text as you like. I edited mine in WORD, it was the easiest way for me to do it. If you are having trouble, let me know what you would like on it and I can edit easy enough, then I can just send you the WORD doc you can print from.

I've updated the last tab on the google document for the new cabins in FEE4. Please let me know if you see any errors.

I've also updated the FEE graphic. Here is a link

Also - I see IHeartMickey was added to FEE4, is that correct?
Thanks
Jeff

Thanks WDRL and Tass! I mis-understood and was thinking we had to pre-book a return bus. We do have the morning bus already scheduled (6:30am to Epcot). Whew.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Jeff!!! I just love that pic! I'll give the editing a go, and thanks for offering to help if I get stuck.

Copy away. There are many on the boards that do designs and this was in one of their photobucket files and they all say they are free to share. One designer had over 2300 images, and I only have one magnet sheet left, decisions, decisions.
One file was all Star Wars. I will see if I can find it again and post a link.
