Morning all

Just catching up on my DIS reading with a coffee. Welcome to everyone new joining. You count our family in on fish extenders. I will forward all the info.
Most of our planning is done, but were still searching for a reasonable flight to our MCO on the 25th. The airlines have been fairly expensive lately not offering many deals, whats with that

Yes we have an early flight saturday morning and staying at the Old Key West, then we decided to rent a car and drive to port, since we are attending church in Orlando area before and after the cruise. For sure my kids will have a blast making new friends, when time comes we will definitely register then in the kids club. Are you doing that? By the way are you doing the FE this time around?

That's funny how close we are. OMG thats one of the reasons why we didnt say anything to the boys, our cruise is booked since last year and it would be too much for them to wait, and now since they dont know we are planing to surprise them the morning of. Are you thinking of joining the FE?

Not sure about FE. It's our first cruise ever and I think I just want to get a feel for things this time. However based on reviews here, I have a feeling it won't be our last cruise
Trying to find a reasonable hotel for our stay the night before. We are doing Legoland, have dinner reservations at the Yacht Club. I thought that would be nice to walk around the Boardwalk and maybe catch a glimpse of Illuminations. I would
love to stay on the property but just too expensive for one night. Thinking of the Embassy Suites in Lake Buena Vista.

I hope you have a great time!!!

It was a great way to meet up with everyone and a nice way to get a Palo's reservation (which can be difficult!). Anyone interested?
My wife and would be interested in a Palo meet. It is our first cruise and i expect it to be difficult to get a Palo brunch reservation once we can make are ressies at the 75 day mark. This may help a lot.

I seen people mention tasting/mixology meets too we would be interested in one of those also but i have no idea how to arrange one.

Thank you.
Kelli
disregard the google docs link. MyCathryn has taken over the list. She asked for info to be emailed to her.

I think we are going to pass on the FE this time. I am def signing my kids up for the kids club. I think they will love it and get to meet some new friends. We are also going to fly out the day before. I priced a shuttle to take us to Cape Canaveral which isnt so bad and then just stay over at a hotel which is half mile to the port.

I booked ours on Southwest as soon as they became available and they were by far the cheapest. Have you considered driving to Detroit and flying from there? And for what it's worth we are flying down on the 24th. I worry about flight delays and missing the ship.

We too are leaving on the 24th. Don't really want to drive to Detroit. I am considering flying into Tampa or Melbourne though. I am currently looking a Southwest flight for $156 pp, not great but still better than flying from Toronto. We'll see I just want to get it booked so I don't have to worry about it.

Hi there,

I did send a email for our family wanting to participate in the FE with everyone. I was just wondering if it was received by who ever is taking care of it (thank you by the way). I didn't see our name of the google spreadsheet

Can someone let me know if they received it.

Cheers
