Thanks for posting those! I am loving that they have a 2:00 showtime too for some of the shows. I think we will probably take advantage of that since the kids would likely fall asleep during the show after dinner. I can't wait to go through them in more detail in the next few days!

Yeah, I saw that too. So much for our well formulated plan to get the pb&j's for the kids. I know you're not allowed to bring food with seeds off the ship (we were stopped for bananas on our first cruise) but prepared food shouldn't be an issue. Who wants to bet they have someone selling snacks in the bus area?

That's an FDA thing. We will have been to a foreign port before that (Bahamas) and they don't want any weird bugs or plants or things brought into the US. Some of the worst pests we have and most agressive species of flora and fauna are not native to our country but were brought here accidentally. It doesn't matter if the foods are prepared or not -- just as it is when you get on the ship, if it's not pre-packaged it's a no-go.

Thank you so much!!! Now I just need to hurry and finish up all this work that pays for the cruise, so I can look at Navigators and daydream about the cruise.

Anything pre-packaged and unopened should be just fine. :-) Uncrustables, granola bars, fruit snacks, anything like that can go off or on the ship.

All I know is, I don't care how full I am that WDW day, I *will* make room for a big hunk of sea salt caramel in dark chocolate from Karamell-Kuche before getting back on the ship!!! OMG, it's the best thing I have ever put in my face...

That sounds awesome! Why did I not know about this before? Where is Karamell-Kuche?

It's in the Germany pavilion at Epcot, and OMG everything is so crazy good... They make everything right there, and the fresh caramel corn is to die for. This is from back when it opened a couple years ago -- We'll just say today is Food Porn Tuesday, because this is worthy of the title.

Quick question on the Navigators -- I'm able to open them and view them just fine, but every other option is grayed out... I can't save them or print them or anything. Is it just me?? I am sure loving (clandestinely) looking at them, though!!! Thank you again for sending them!

Sorry for the posting flurry... Just so excited over finally getting to see the new Navigators!!

Alright, how about the second meet at 10:30am Saturday, in the area right there in front of Signals and Cove Cafe? (Deck 9 midship) Signals won't be open so there shouldn't be anyone there, we can grab some late-morning treats in Cove Cafe, and we can enjoy the nice ocean air. There doesn't seem to really be anything else going on at that time other than a DVC thing, and a second meet will give folks who couldn't make the first meet a chance to say hi to whoever else wants to show up. Hopefully more than just me. I never pass up a chance to meet up with DIS-friends!


I've made a quick list of highlights (adult stuff) of the rest of the cruise, and stuff I really want to do and would love some company!

Friday night: I know it's the first night but hopefully you got your rest that morning, because MAGIC QUEST is that night!! 10:30pm in Rockin' Bar D. A don't-miss. Would LOVE to have a mostly-DIS team!!

Saturday: I'm conflicted on two things -- There's a wine tasting on Texas wines at 12:30 in Sessions, which I would *really* love to do, but the first Singles/single parents/solo travelers lunch with the cruise staff is at 12:45 in Parrot Cay and I have always enjoyed those a great deal. And missing the first one is like kids missing the first night in the youth clubs -- you just never do that! So I'll probably end up at the lunch...

There's one of those lunches in Parrot Cay every sea day at either 12:30 or 12:45, for whoever might want to join me!

There's also a Singles Mingle at 4:30 that afternoon in Cove Cafe, and around that time every sea day. I'll be at those too! And just to clarify, for anyone new to DCL, the "singles" get-togethers are not "meet markets" at all... They really are for not just singles, but single parents, and people simply traveling alone for whatever reason. I am very happy with my boyfriend and not looking for a date -- but these get-togethers have always been such a great way to get to know the cruise staff and to make new friends to hang out with on the cruise. I have always had the best time with the people I've met that way!! And since I generally only see my son at dinner and pin trading, it's a fun way to get to hang out with other grownups.

Okay, back to Saturday -- They're having a Spa Bingo session at 3:15 that I think I'm going to go to, if anyone wants to join me. And Saturday night is another biggie -- Match Your Mate! 10:45 in Rockin' Bar D, and another don't-miss. I try and get to these big-deal things at RBD no later than 10 or 10:15, to grab a table or three right there in front of the dance floor, against the rail. Hope some of y'all can join me!

Sunday has the singles' lunch and later Mingle again. And I know this is early, but Team Trivia is at 9:45 that morning in Diversions. I'm going to try and make it!

Monday (Castaway Cay day) is the 80's party!! SO much fun... I just love it. Will you end up as a member of Bon Jovi or the Go-Go's? 10:30 in Rockin' Bar D!

Wednesday is lunch (12:45) and Mingle (4:30) again. And again, this is early, but TV Tune Trivia is at 9:30am in Diversions. Would love to do that!! But being the morning after a late night at WDW, I'm not at all sure I'll make it... gonna play that one by ear. Movie Quote Trivia is at a more doable 3pm, but I think I would suck at that, lol.

Thursday has Officer Pin Trading at 7:30 in front of Preludes, and DS & I will definitely be at that! We'll be at the pin cart probably every evening at that time, but really enjoy trading with the Officers. Then at 10:45 in Rockin' Bar D is the 70's Disco Party!! Another huge barrel of not-to-miss fun.

Friday has the trivia I absolutely don't want to miss -- 80's & 90's Music Trivia at 3pm in Diversions. Who wants to play with me?? There's also Mixology at 4pm in Sessions, which I have never done and sounds really cool to me. I'd like to do it if trivia is done by then. It says trivia is done by 3:45, so I'm hoping to do both! Then that night at 10:30 in Rockin' Bar D is Pop!, a pop-culture game show. They have never had that in my previous cruises, but I am allllll over something like that, lol.


Sorry so long -- but I hope to get to do some of this fun stuff with y'all!!

Link to PDF of Searchable Navigators

ok, so the OCR program didn't find 'everything' in the files but they are now text searchable if you download and then open the file in Acrobat reader (just don't get disappointed if you search for a word and don't find it). hopefully these will help with planning!

Gina, are you planning to sleep at all??

I thought I had picked out a boatload of things I wanted to do, but you've got me beat! To the extent Maggie is willing to hang out with me, we will be doing family stuff or hanging by the pool. Since she is developing into an amazing artist, you can probably find us in the drawing/animation classes. When she ditches me for the Edge and her new friends, I will try to squeeze in some grown-up activities (or naps on the loungers on Deck 4.)

This promises to be an awesome cruise!!

Gina, I am interested in all of the Friday activities! I am especially psyched for the 80's and 90's music trivia!

11 year old DD. Edge or Lab

DD is 11. This is her first cruise. We aren't sure if she will be in the Lab or Edge. Just curious which way other families are leaning for this age group. DS is 6 and I do like the idea of them being together for this first cruise. I have read the information on other threads and will have her go to the open house.
