Got upgrade

Checked this morning and got stateroom assignment. No longer a GTY in cat 7A. It is an upgrade from 7A to 5B. .

So I'm starting to think about packing this morning. I have a couple of piles in my staging area. Things need to be tried on next to see what's coming with me and what doesn't fit anymore.

John and I are bringing one formal and two semi formal outfits. We usually launder and dry clean them at home and then put them in a garmet bag to carry with the suitcases. We came up with a better idea for this trip, just so we don't have to carry the garmet bag. We're going to pack our outfits uncleaned into our suitcases, when we get onboard we'll have them cleaned and laundered by DCL and they'll be ready to wear. Then we can put them back in the suitcases for the travel home. No garmet bag to carry.

No upgrade for us but a pleasant surprise. we are on the opposite side of the ship, same deck and approximate location of our most favourite cabin....

And we have never had a cabin upgrade...but sailing in any cabin is a DREAM...

We also got a cabin # (I did update CG db) and we're in 2618. No upgrade for us either (I have a mental picture of the folks at DCL with names on darts that they throw at a dartboard .)

Does anyone have an email address for the Hokey Donut earring person? I tried to contact her on esty but no luck. Any suggestions? I wanted to see if she could make a stud pair with Mickey and the blue flower.

I don't have Cheryl's email (Hokey Donut) but if you go on etsy and type in Mickey Mouse earrings, find one of her items and hit contact seller you should reach her. I have an outstanding order with her. If you want I can send her your email to contact you? Let me know.

Try this one: hokeydonut@gmail.com it's the same email the contact form uses from her Etsy web page.

Cruise Shirts Refund

Becky sent me a message stating the shirts are in the mails to me and giving me a copy of the final invoice. I believe most of you will receive a refund check with your shirts.

I had her send me all the shirts she received inorder to get us a little better price, total 153 shirts. This was 13 more shirts then initially ordered, 9 of those have been ordered, 4 more remain. I also found that if I print out the shipping labels myself, I get a 15% discount on the mailing.

I won't know the exact amount of the refund until I see how many of the shirts are taken, but right now it looks like about $5 a shirt and possibly some for the mailing costs.

If you are interest in a size SMALL, I know I'll have one of those available.

There will be "early entry" to DL only on Sat (tues, thurs, sat), one hour before park opens, and Fantasyland & Tomorrowland will both have a few cool things open. Totally worth it to go to the newly upgraded Star Tours (random computer driven variations & different in some way every time!) It will get really impacted later in the day, so go 2-3 times to get the effect! Glad you opted for the PH!!!!

We do this every time!!
They are very reasonable (less than what I pay locally) and will have them back for you the following afternoon. Another trick I've learned is to launder all those cotton items that need pressing, put them in a handy place, and send for pressing as soon as we settle in....half price for press only!!
