Excited to Sail!

Hello, I am excited to be joining this cruise. The deal is great, with the kids sail free, this cruise is not very much more than what we paid for the Member Cruise. And this is a lot longer!

We really don't need another trip this soon--we were on the Member Cruise and spent a week before the cruise at the BCV and then after the cruise we had a one bedroom MK view at BLT for three days. So we were gone for 2 weeks total. But I love the idea of this cruise with a day at Disney and I have always wanted to go to Key West, even if it is only for a few hours!

Can someone tell me more about the FE? We have cruised before--this will be our 6th cruise. But we have only been on member cruises.

I wish the airfare was a bit cheaper. We are coming in the day before from Maryland and staying one night before the cruise at the Hotel Galvez.

Looking forward to talking to everyone!

Any other women without children cruisers? I (40 something) will be there with my Mom (60 something), and with the Kids Sail Free offer, I'm thinking there are going to be a large percentage of families with younger children not yet in school or young enough to pull out.

I'm taking my first ever cruise on the Magic over Thanksgiving with my family (DH & 2 teenage DS's), but have already planned my 2nd cruise for March 1 which will be my Mom's first ever! Gee, hope I like it!

My Mom and I both love Disney and she's tagged along on several of my WDW and DL trips. We had this cruise planned before the itinerary changed, but I was very happy with the change because it makes it a different cruise than my first, and is great to have another day at WDW with my Mom. I'm not really a beach person, but I think the 1 day at Castaway Cay will be a nice lounging day. And the WDW day is the day before Flower and Garden Festival starts, so we'll definitely be starting our day there as my Mom is a huge gardening fanatic!

Hello all new cruisers! I am excited to see that our number is increasing. :-) I hope everyone who celebrates it had a Happy Halloween! We are all suffering from a touch of candy hangover here. I also hope none of you were in the path of the Frankenstorm! We were grazed by it here in the Carolinas, but luckily we escaped mostly unscathed. Scary!

Denise, how fun that we will be on a other cruise together! I am still hoping Lynn will also decide to join us for this cruise.

Maybe we should think about a roll call to see who is interested in doing the Fish Extender exchange. For those who unfamiliar with this "game" - it's just a fun little way to exchange treats or trinkets. Outside each cabin door is a metal fish that serves as a hanger for notes from crew or the like. Each family who participates hangs a pouch from the fish, then we take turns leaving something for each other. I have to admit that I thought it was ridiculous when I first heard about it. But my little girl saw some of the photos and asked if she could have an Alice in Wonderland "flag" for her door, so we signed up with the Dis group on our first cruise. It was a lot of fun! We got neat little treats and mementos from all over the place, some of which where much needed during our trip.

If you want to participate, just post a reply saying so and tell how many adults and children in your group. I'll send you a private message asking for more info (ages of kids, boys or girls, names, cabin #). We'll set a cut-off date and as soon as that passes I will compile a list and send it to everyone who signed up. For privacy, I will not post the list here in the thread. There are some great threads here on the boards where you can see photos of FE hangers and get ideas for what to put in them. I ordered my hanger from Etsy, and some of the items I have give out are: a cruise "emergency kit" (hilighters for Navigator, safety pins, clothespins, hand sanitizer, etc), a CD of cruise music, boxed candy for the movie theater, Spanish-English translation cards (for Mexican ports). We've gotten all kinds of stuff, from a roll of LifeSavers to a full-size Disney photo album.

Yay!! So exciting that it's your first time and how FUN that you are surprising your little girls. My DD6 LOVES the Disney Cruise more than just about anything in the world. We'll be doing MK on our park day. What about you guys?

I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. Please tell! Since deciding to stay on this cruise, I remembered my very first (and would have been last, had we not tried DCL), horrible awful cruise, many years ago. Ok, well it wasn't ALL bad, but I was sick from Tampa all the way through the Gulf of Mexico. What was the motion like for you on this cruise?

After sailing out of Port Canaveral the last two times without a bit of trouble, I had honestly forgotten all about my first experience, but it does make me a little nervous now that I remember. I had to take Dramamine and was so out of it even the next day that I fell asleep on Paradise Beach and woke up hours later, burned to a crisp. Good times.

We have cruised many times before (not dcl) but since they offered kids sail free it is to good of a deal to pass up and we are all so excited!! Our girls are teenagers but truly love anything Disney so better late than never. We would love to participate in the fish extender as well. We are 2 adults and 2 teenage daughters.

McHugh family reunion cruse.

We have been to WDW many times but this is our first disney cruise.
We have 14 in our group 9 adults and 5 kids. Our group spands four generations. We are coming from RI, PA, CA and TX. We plan to arrive the day before because the weather could be a problem. Where is the best place to stay in Houston or Galveston? We have four state rooms and would be interested in taking part in the FE.

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'm the lucky girl going with this awesome girl so excited!!!!!! We meet on the magic in 2007 at cast away cat and since have became great friends truelly blessed by her friendship

So weird getting off the ship time. This was our fourth cruise but the first time getting off knowing only a few short months and we will b sailing with Mickey again my kids had this best time they made some great friends at the edge and some of the kids in the line for customs we still rounding up numbers, getting one last hug in and crying. This was the first year both kids were in the edge and I gave them a taste of freedom to roam the ship with friends
