As for the facebook page, go to You'll have to request to join as it's a closed group, but there are several of us that have been sharing ideas. It's been a good source of information as well as the DIS.

Only 38 days to go! We're so excited!!

Great thank you! My DD (Kamryn) will turn 6 in just a couple of weeks so they are very close in age! She is a little shy so I am hoping she will quickly make some friends in the kids club. Of course her little sister will be with her who is the complete opposite of shy! We are not telling them about the cruise-- we plan on surprising them when we show up at the dock Hope I can keep it a secret!


Also, for those of you that are driving your own car, where are you parking?

Allie's shy as well, but seems to do better with kids her own age. She's looking forward to making friends.

We are driving down the day before so we can go to Pleasure Pier. We were looking at staying at one of the hotels that offer shuttles to the port, but with what we could save by staying at one that doesn't offer transport, we are looking at self parking now. Still reading reviews to decide which one we want to go with.

We are also from Louisiana are are taking advantage of the Mardi Gras school vacation. I saw that there was a facebook group-- how do I join that?
I had/have so many questions and it has been so great reading everyone's posts, ideas, and responses!

We are anxiously awaiting ours too. The in laws haven't received theirs yet either. It's like Christmas every time I go to the mail box though. I've been ordering supplies for FEs online, so there's been a lot of packages. It's keeping me busy enough so that I don't start packing yet. If we were 38 days out from a WDW trip, I'd already have the luggage down and half packed. lol.

Our friends got their docs yesterday from our agent and we didn't. I figure I have 30+ days to go and I don't really need them to get onboard anyhow I have had clothes shoved aside for over 2 months but officially just packed last week. I made 2 large suitcase ...each with 3 days of daywear and 3 nights of dinner wear. I am always afraid of my luggage being lost when having connecting flights. I have those 2 large pieces, another large piece with SHOES(large part), all the medicines, hamper, etc.
One carry on for FE's, one for important papers, money, SLR camera, all the charges, ETC. Then one more with clothes for the 2 days in Texas. Even though I have 6 pieces at least a bunch will fit into the others so easy storage under the bed in the stateroom!!!!

What else has everyone have packed?

Hey , some questions were asked about a DIS meet. YES there is a meet for 3PM at the Promenade lounge on Deck 3. If you upgrade at the port make sure you show up to this or change your room number on the paper on Minnie321's door.

I have a friend that just told me her husband surprised them with the cruise for christmas - she asked about joining the FE group - I told her it was extended until the 4th - so we may have another family added - just giving everyone a heads up.

I can't say that I have packed too much - just the new clothes and things the kids got for Christmas and when I find something I think I might need I toss it in the suitcases! Kids are going to their dads this weekend and I plan on laying out everyone's clothes and making a list of things I still need to buy - like DS needs a dress shirt and shoes. I still need a formal! I agree with the shoes - not sure but I think between DD and I we made need a deticated shoe suitcase!!!

Agree with the yucky weather! But I was able to get my FE's done again - I really think I am finished except for packing up one project that has to dry for a while. tonight I plan on seeing what clothes we have and what we still need to but.
