A few questions: has anyone ever changed their dining rotation or requested a specific dining rotation? how do you do that? Is anyone not going to WDW on Port Canaveral day? We were thinking about getting a cab to go to Cocoa Beach for the day. Will we be the only ones not going to WDW? Can't wait to meet everyone!

Yay for last minute cruisers! We just booked too! We did the 8 Night Christmas cruise out of Galveston and we loved it! Four days at sea are really nice to have...we are sure you will love it too!

First Disney Cruise

We are a family of 4, children 8 and 11. I have no clue how this board works, but would love to connect with your group on the cruise. The gift exchange sounds fun!

Not sure if I said... But myself and DH doing a last minute cruise. We have 6 children, are they coming... NOPE... We have 11 grandchildren are they coming.... NOPE... Just the two of us, and we can hardly wait. Planning a big trip in a few years with all of us, but we keep expanding... So, not sure we can save enough to take all of us....

Welcome to the group. We are meeting at 3p sail away day at the promenade lounge. The gift exchange list #1 and #2 are closed. You are welcome to start a last minute list #3? We closed the first list two months out and second one a month out to give people time to get set. We have seen a last minute list go before if you want to try.

Many of us have jumped the conversation to a facebook group.

On the list I will help coordinate like I did with the others if you say go.

I have loved doing FE before. But I'm ok. I just really want to meet some of these people I already feel I know. So im anxious to meet everyone for our meet.
Yes, I am on the Facebook page more than this. So smart how u did the 2 FE lists. one cruise we did last year, there were 50 rooms on the list. While that was nice, smaller lists are much better. We needed a separate suitcase Just to bring it and take it all home. So very smart. Not as much work either but still the fun in wondering if there will be anything at your door..
we also did a secret Mickey. Where u had the name of a family or a couple on the list and they were your secret pals the week. You brought them something little several times during the week, then we had a "big reveal" a couple of days before the end of the cruise, to give a $20. limit gift to our secret Mickey family. It was a lot of fun. And nice cause we didn't have to make or get gifts for 30+ people, just a a few for one family. I would do that again.

I know it's a little late...but on our Christmas cruise we had an ornament exchange and we were thinking about how it would have been nice to have an Easter "egg" exchange! Each person participating would bring a spring-time gift and when coming to the meet each person participating would pick an Easter egg with a number in it and when that person's number is called they would come and pick a gift. This also gives the people who are or are not part of the FE group a chance to participate in at least a small gift exchange. The ornament exchange was a lot of fun on our Christmas cruise and I would be willing to set everything up if people wanted to do something like this on this cruise!

That sounds like fun. Is it for adults, kids or both? Adults bring adult gift and kids bring kid gift?
