We just paid in full today so we could book our activities. We'd like to have our girls (3 and 6) join in on the fish extenders as well, if there's room!

Just a quick note about Castaway Cay. We were there last March cruising on the dream and the water is still very very chilly and it was incredibly windy so the water was murky.

Is anyone who has paid in full able to book activities now? I got a receipt from my travel agent today but when I went into the reservation it says I can start booking activities December 16th. Do I have to have the travel agent book them or do you have to be a multiple Disney cruise line passenger to book activities early? I'd love to do this but am not sure how?!

To book early, you have to have cruised at least once before which makes you a Castaway Club member. So, I know the lowest level (Silver) could book on Nov. 30 at midnight Eastern time (I did), but if it's your first cruise, you have to wait until until the PIF (Paid in Full) date, which is Dec. 16 as you found online.

Sure! As of now, it looks like we have 15 cabins signed up to participate. There are 29 adults and 24 children [5 boys, 12 girls (2 of them teenagers), and 7 undetermined (meaning the reply simply stated "x kids" rather than boys or girls)]. I also like to start prepping in advance, so I'm glad you asked. I hope it helps! I will try to keep us updated on a weekly(ish) basis as the group grows! :-)

*** ATTENTION FE'ers ***

I just want to make sure I am keeping current on who has signed up to participate in the FE exchange. There are a few cruisers who have joined the thread but who did not specify that they are planning to do FE. Please check to see that your name is on the following list. If you would like to participate, but don't see your name, please let me know. Thanks!!

Palo doesn't do tea anymore, unfortunately.

activities and check-in

This is our second DCL cruise, so I was able to book activities Friday, Nov. 30 at 11 p.m. CST. We booked a couple spa activities; Palo brunch on the second sea day and Palo dinner on pirate night, which looks to be March 6, the day after WDW. We also booked some shore excursions: bikes and the stingray snorkel at Castaway; and transportation to WDW and the Illuminations dessert for DD and I and KSC for DH.
Transportation to WDW was available at 7:15, 8:15 and 9:15. We choose 8:15, which is the same time the transportation for KSC leaves.
I'm not sure about the Illumninations excursion. We've never been to WDW, but have done Disneyland A LOT. I'm assuming it's comparable to what they offer with the Fantasmic dessert and viewing package, which I've always wanted to do.
I did online check in on Saturday and was able to get an 11 a.m. port arrival time.
