I feel the same way! I am ready to just GO NOW!!! I can hardly sleep!! My DD(7) is running around the house right now singing "I can't wait 'til Friday! I can't wait 'til Friday!" so apparently she is ready to go, too!

I saw that it says that there is a facebook group so I wondered if the admin could add me. But I wasn't sure what info she would need from me. Since I just created logins today and this is my very first post, it won't let me PM her. Sorry that I am clueless! We are very excited about our trip!!

So glad you can join us! Hope to meet you on Friday!!
My DD is 7 and would be thrilled to hang out with your girls! She can be a little shy at first also, but I'll bet by the end of the cruise, she'll be her normal crazy self!


Well, nothing like some last minute pre-vacation stress, right? Our "check engine" light came on on Saturday afternoon. We dropped it off at the dealership this morning and just found out that the timing chain had gone bad! So it won't be ready till late tomorrow - we leave on Thursday at o'dark thirty to drive down!

SO very thankful that: a) it happened BEFORE our trek to Texas and b) that it's covered by warranty!!!

I got absolutely nothing accomplished at work today and it's doubtful that I'll get anything done Tuesday or Wednesday, either. I'm just too antsy to concentrate on anything!

Can't wait to meet you all!

I told Karsyn (my DD) that she already has friends that are ready to meet her and she is very excited!

I was very unproductive today also. Luckily I already have most everything done in preparation for the trip. I can't concentrate on anything either!

DD is 7 as well. She too is shy at first. Sorry to hear about the car issue but thank goodness you found out now instead of on the road driving down. That would have added a little more stress!!

So because I'm crazy, I started talking to DH on Saturday about possibly switching our main dining time to the late seating. I've realized that my girls (who are typically in bed by 7:30) would be pushing it to make it to the 8:30 show each night and would likely be grumpy during/afterwards. Since they really don't like to come to dinner with us anyway, we can grab them something from Pluto's before the early show, go watch it, and then drop them off (in their pj's) at the kid's club while DH and I go enjoy our dinner in a dining room with fewer kids. Plus, if they DO decide to go to dinner with us, they can do the dine-n-play thing and only have to sit through a short period of time versus the full experience. Why it took me this long to figure all of this out, I have no clue. Sooooo....long story short, we switched our dining today and freed up main dining for a party of 4 on the wait list.

I do not know how I am going to get through the next three days of work. I got about half of my to-do list done today and have NO desire to work. Instead, I spent time creating myself a little itinerary so I would remember the meets and fun stuff we have planned!

Well, Disney emailed me today letting me know our party has been switched to main dining and is no longer on the wait list! Pretty sure that was because of you! Thanks!!

You're leaving the cats with food and water for 8 days? How big are those bowls????? Seriously, please tell me someone is checking on them while you are gone.

YES!!! I am going nuts!! Still have 3 of the longest days of work to get through...I just can't concentrate on anything. I am so ready to leave.

Another GF Eater Here!!

I am a little nervous about being stuck on a ship and trusting them to feed us safely, but I keep telling myself "Disney is great with allergies, Disney is great with allergies..." Unfortunately they did gluten me when we went to Disney World in 2008 so I have that in the back of my head too. I am hoping to come off the cruise with a new appreciation for the chefs onboard! Can't wait to meet you! :-)
Celiac disease......& super excited to have someone else cook for me!

We are doing the late dinning for this very reason... I know my son would rather see the show then sit at boring dinner... And I plan on using the dine in play option! I want to have dinner with my son BUT being so late I'm hoping he enjoys the club!

Okay, here it is straight from the horse's - er, meteorologist's - mouth!


"You should beat the cold front by 12 hours. Saturday it should come through. It may catch you before getting through the Florida straits. Warm weather and few showers. Great sailing weather in my book. Not so sure about your trip back through the Gulf. No fog on this one except maybe coming back."


I can live with all of that! Especially the no-fog-when-we-leave part!!

Room Service

So - this is only my second Disney Cruise - and the first time doing the FEE.. You guys are so great - and knowledgeable..

Last time - we never ordered - room service - can someone tell me more about it? Where do you find a list of what you can order? I know people have talked about the cake of the day - or cookies and milk for the kids... How do you do that?

How does the tipping work for room service - do you do that at the end - or when they deliver? And since the food has no prices - how much do you tip?

Any help would be appreciated..Thanks!
