I swear I won't ask a million questions, but I do have a few!

For the day in Castaway Cay, is it easy to rent bikes or tubes when we get there or do you guys recommend booking those things ahead of time? I don't know if my kids (8 & 5) will be happy to just swim around or if they will want to get bikes/tubes. Someone mentioned that the water will be chilly in March?

Also - does anyone know if they have bikes with training wheels for younger kids? > Just found this answer that they do have bikes with training wheels, in case that helps anyone else! :-)

We tried to snorkel last march a week earlier than this cruise and the water was really cold and it was really windy. They had a lot of tubes the day we were there but there is no guarantee.

Joining

We are proud to join this group. I will be sailing with my husband and our 4 year old granddaughter. This is her first cruise. I look forward to getting to know some of you before we even leave. Wow I have a lot to plan.

Also, what about doing a meet while onboard? Anyone interested? With several sea days, maybe we could rustle up a card game or a group for wine tasting? Let me know what you think!
We want to participate in the FE gifts. Me DH and our Grand daughter age 4. This is my 12th cruise and I love this part of it. Let me know who is coordinating this please. I also agree that having meets on board are a great way to get started with knowing who are DIS friends are. Since our first full day is at sea, that might be a good time. There is a bar area behind the right side of Lumires. We have done several meets there and it seems like a good location. Just let us know what the group decides.

I have sailed the Dream and the Fantasy one time each and on those ships, you use your stateroom card. I am pretty sure my TA said that the Magic has now converted to the same system.

We just rent once we get there....that way we have the freedom to change our minds!

Us, too! Are you spending any time there on Thursday, or just driving in that night? Our flight arrives in Houston pretty early, and we will probably head straight to the hotel.

Are you guys using enterprise one way rentals? Will the hotel drop you off in the a.m.? We are booked at the Harbor House, its' sister property, but I only chose it because we could walk to the port in the morning.
