You aren't crazy but once you get onboard you will think WHY was I worried. They will have a blast! We have only cruised on DCL, but our first was 3 days then we did 4 days, now I can't wait for the 7 day. My kids didn't want to leave the ship, we were even headed to WDW and they both told us they preferred the ship.

Thanks! I know you're right, but it's nice to hear it repeated. Also, that's so good to hear about your kids preferring DCL to WDW. That was another fear for me. We all LOVE WDW so much, and I've been having second thoughts of choosing the cruise over the parks. But my husband was ready for a break from the commando park touring, and I thought this would be a nice compromise and still give us that Disney fix!

We didn't get connecting the two rooms are on concierge 12. I'm hoping to upgrade at the port to a 1br to connect to the other room!

We are also Concierge deck 12, but in a Cat. T suite on the bump-out. I was spoiled by the suite twice this year and want my hubby to experience it. It's my 17th DCL cruise but his first. It's my present to him for our 23rd anniversary.

I don't think there are any suites left on our cruise unless someone cancels. Last month there was one still showing on deck 11, but now if you actually try to select a Cat. T and continue, a message at the top says it's no longer available.

Boo! Well at least we are able to be in the concierge level! This is our first time using it! Hope to see you around in the lounge and sundeck!

There is always the chance someone could change dates and something would open up, but mid-May is a popular time to sail so you can't really count on it. Even without it, you will really enjoy Concierge and especially being on deck 12. It's so convenient to the lounge and sundeck. The onboard Concierge Team is WONDERFUL!

We'll probably run into you often.

Hi All,

http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/352833278144429/

I'm going on the Fantasy on Nov 24th and part of that FB page and it's non-stop fun, sharing ideas, setting up playdates for the kids, shore excursion discussions and easy to stay on top of things. Sign up if you like to, and I typically check in every day !!!!

For those new to this thread who don't read previous pages, the original and active FB group for this cruise is at http://www.facebook.com/groups/479540355413485/

The group is growing. It is a private "closed group" so you need to request to join and verify that you are on this cruise. You can send a PM to DisneyCrazMom, who is admin for the group (THANK YOU for doing that! ). Perhaps this thread's OP could add the link to the first post so those joining this cruise can easily find it.

OMG, I didn't even realize we were cruising during Mother's Day! Well I will be sure to let my DH know so that he and the kids can plan something for me.
