Well...
I got a call from my travel agent this morning about Kids Sail Free. We had booked a week at WDW to take the place of the cruise I was planning to cancel (but hadn't gotten around to.) So we're BACK - if you'll have us. :-)

Glad to see that traffic on the thread has picked up, and I'm looking forward to chatting and planning with you!

There are three of us this time, just me (Alexis) my hubby (Tim) and our 6 year-old daughter. This will be our third Disney cruise, all on the Magic! We were originally booked to sail with our good friends Lynn (Dizzi) and her hubby, but they cancelled when the itinerary changed. :-( I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will reconsider joining us now that Kids Sail Free!

Just got back from DW and just saw this cruise. We live just outside of Houston so any cruise leaving Galveston not going to Mexico is a huge plus for us! Going to crunch some numbers and see if we can swing this. It would be myself, DH, and DS (3 yrs old). Wish me luck!

We just booked this cruise! We were supposed to cruise the western on the fantasy but when they announced the kids sail free and you got Castaway Cay and a day in Disney we jumped! We were not that excited about 2 Mexican port days on the western anyway. My family is myself, DH, DD 11 and DD 9. We will be traveling with another family. I am excited and can't wait to find out more about the Magic. We have been on one other cruise, last March on the Dream.

So excited to see so many more cruisers signing up. Anyone interested in organizing a FE?

Me too!
We were planning to do the FE, and I am happy to organize it as we get closer. Hopefully we'll get more takers. I know it seems somewhat odd, but my daughter just loves it. Plus, you never know when you'll find a special surprise in there from DCL, which happened to us last time.

My daughter got an invitation to a special event on the last night of our last cruise. A character party where only two other children and their families were present. All the regular characters were there, along with the casts from all the onboard shows. It was AMAZING!

Good Morning from Colorado!! I am more than excited to announce my friends and I are going to join you on this fabulous trip!! My BFF and I are headed to the Magic and sailing out of TX a week from today Nov 3rd. I am looking forward to getting away to a little beach and sunshine. Although, this cruise is what I am really getting excited about. This itinerary is amazing and I can not wait to be on an 8 day cruise with stops at Castaway Cay and WDW.

Has anyone started getting this cruise started with a FE page and some meet and greets or anything else? I have some fun ideas. Everyone have a great day and I look forward to meeting y'all here on the boards.

I just read the past posts and got all caught up. This thread is going to be fun and exciting because talking and planning this trip is half the fun!! It doesn't matter how big or small the group is, it's what we do with it. I look forward to getting to know y'all.

Everyone please post any questions or concerns regarding Galveston. I will be there next week boarding the Magic. So I will be your research cruiser and answer any and all your questions.
