We also moved from Galveston 2 years ago, so this will be our first trip back to town and we're looking forward to seeing friends while we're there. (FYI, I don't know if anyone's mentioned it because I haven't read all 25 pages yet, but the weekend of the 9th is also Mardi Gras in Galveston.)

SO EXCITED to be going and looking forward to meeting y'all!
Welcome!!!! We are chatting here but alot on facebook. Check out our webpage for info

Welcome from a fellow North Texan (well, East Texan now). DH and I lived in Plano when we were first married.

Welcome aboard - I have a DD 11 also. If you have any questions just ask - it is my first cruise, but I have been reading on the Disboard for a year now so I think I pretty much know how to answer any cruise questions, but we do have some veteran cruisers that could answer better. Check out our facebook page - the link is in one of the posts here.

Hey there! This will be our 1st Disney cruise also and we have a 12yo daughter(Abigail) and a 4yo (Grace). Since we are novices, I don't understand most of the abbreviations that are being used. In fact, I've been trying to figure out how to post for 2 days. Anyway, it appears we've some very knowledgable veterans here, so we should learn quite a bit before setting sail thankfully. Also, being that I've just learned what a fish extender was, will anyone else be interested in starting a new group since the others have met their time deadline for joining?

Welcome Angel !! My suggestion is to pose that question on our facebook page to people too some have bought and made everything so probably can't add you but others may. Like I could add your family to mine. Maybe others could and you could print our fe list on our web page and just highlight the people who can include you and exchange with them

There are plenty of 1st timers here too. I actually had to look up the abbreviations when I started reading the boards. You'll figure it out quickly. I think I'll have enought FE gifts to drop some by your cabin. We have a 9,5 & 4 year old. Cabin 8084. Looking forward to meeting you.

Never too late to get in a DIS group! If you want to participate in an FE group, they have started a smaller, 2nd group for the late comers!

There is a link on post #1 with intructions to signup for the FE.

Hope this helps and Welcome!

Come join our facebook group...very chatty there.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/302836943149985/

In this day and age when names are so unique and beautiful , alot of them can go as either gender. I wanted to ask if Raegan was a girl or boy as I believe it is a name like my Sydney that can go either way. Thanks

Added you to our webpage!
