I agree on the safety of Fish Extender, we did it on the Fantasy in April and had absolutely no problems....if your child is in tune with rules, strangers, etc...my daughter was 5 and this next trip will be 6 and we fully intend to participate, it was one of the most rewarding experiences she had on the cruise, giving and receiving...did not matter how big or small just the fun of coming bak to our room and finding a gift!

Hey, all!

I'll be on this cruise, too. My first Disney cruise (I'm a big fan of the Disney parks, go at least once a year, but have never done the cruise).

I'm traveling solo, as far as my room situation goes, but I won't be alone: My sister is kaylad2006, traveling with her hubby and my gorgeous niece.

Sent a request to join the Facebook group. Can't wait to chat with everyone, get psyched for the trip!

Richard/Tralfie

It's hard to drive past Disneyland, though. When we go to SD, we make sure our DD has a potty break before we hit the Disneyland area. For some reason, if we don't stop sooner, her potty alarm always goes off in Orange County, and all it takes is for her to see a Disney bus drive by before the Mickey alarm goes off. That alarm has a three day deactivation process that is very expensive.

We are planning to stay at a WDW resort before the cruise... Anyone else?
I love SD too! We lived there from 1967-1972. My daughter (Satarma on this board) was born there (in Mercy Hospital :-). We now live in New Mexico, but when we go to Disneyland we always try to go down to SD for lunch.

We will be staying two nights at the All Star Movie Resort before the cruise. We will also be staying one night after the cruise to visit Harry Potter World at Universal. We went there in January, 2011 when we went on the maiden voyage of the Dream, and are excited about going there again. Also excited about seeing the new things at Magic Kingdom!

I wanted to see the Harry Potter World at Universal, too. I just don't think I can squeeze it in. Maybe in 2014 my daughter won't think HP is too scary anymore.

We're struggling to squeeze everything in this time too. We'd like to have an extra day from what we have planned, but my daughter can't leave any earlier, and my 46th wedding anniversary is on the 20th, and I really want to be home for that, so I can't leave later. It would be so much easier if hubby would go on the cruise with me, but he won't, so oh well :-(

Harry Potter World isn't very big, but what is there is really cool. There is only one ride that we really like (there are 4 rides total, unless they've added some since we were there) but the shops are really great, and when you're in the street you feel like you're walking right through Hogsmeade :-) I forgot the name of the ride we liked so well, but the queue takes you through Hogwarts castle.

Feisty Fairy is organizing the FE. Her posting about it is #34 (http://disboards.com/showpost.php?p=...7&postcount=34)

She hasn't been on for a couple of weeks, but she checks in periodically.

I have to go back and read all the posts, but I'm in on this cruise! It'll be me and my DMom. Just the two of us! Can't wait to meet you all, this will be fun! It's our first Disney Cruise, and we've always wanted to do a trip like this. This is going to be great!
