Happy to help if you have any questions about the Magic (vs. Dream), you have a strong knowledge on this thread to help.
Hi BlueMarlin - can you confirm if you saw my message from yesterday and got me added to the FE and Meet lists?

Someone who is has gone out of Galveston before can answer you better than I can. What we do know is that the Port Canaveral terminal is Disney specific and much better, so if you left from the resorts I presume you went to Port Canaveral. the other ports that we have embarked from were not nearly as organized or nice. Transport from the hotels may be staggered and random.

We signed up for the 11 am check-in. I have not gone out of Galveston but I have gone out of a non-Disney terminal with Disney. Since it is not theirs they did not have they considered acceptable Disney waiting places so let everyone start boarding almost immediately. You could not get to your room but you could get on the ship. We had a 11 am boarding in that port. (Barcelona) I am expecting something similar so that was why we went with the earlier boarding time this trip. I hope this helps!

Yes, I am sure.

Tiffany 8536 - You are added
Heidi - Got your cabin 6570
Michelle - 7514 - all set.

We are at 17 cabins. (15 confirmed, 2 undecided). If Trinity joins she is 18. Are we going to cut off at 20 or 25 for the first FE list?

We booked it. I have done it in MK and it was pretty good. The best part is not having to worry about where you are going watch and not having to steak out spot in advance. We are looking forward to it!

Key West

I am reading the details right... we get into port at 7:30 am and leave at 12:45 pm? We are only there for 5 hours and 15 minutes. Is that correct? Seems like a really short stop!

Yea, and early in the morning. Kinda bummed. If you notice we are two days at sea on the way over and only "one" on the way back. I think they need the half-day out of Key West to make time.

Thanks for getting our info in.

We are coming aboard 12-12:30, I think I'll just leave that.

I signed up for Epcot dessert party, might see about doing Wishes dessert instead. We're trying to figure out how to do the parks. We all want HS and MK, but I just remembered it's Flower and Garden at Epcot, which I love! We went to WDW in Oct. and will be back in June, so we just want to hit the high points. The Epcot dessert party is pretty exclusive to mostly cruises and special events so we'll probably stick with that & work around it.

I've been getting FE stuff and door magnet stuff today. We are getting excited!!
