Thanks for joining in. I do hope to do a trip report also. I feel so very fortunate to be gifted with this trip and I want to share as much as possible with everyone.

We are very excited to be going out of New York. DH is from Upstate New York and we visit his family often, but the kids and I have never been to the city.
Keep playing the game. I still am. There is another round going on for a cruise out of Texas next.

Passports! We need passports!

We have all been to Canada, but that was years ago before passports were necessary. DH is the only to have traveled outside of the country and that is always for work. His will be easy as he just has to renew his tourist passport, which he has already sent off. The kids and I need to submit for our first ones. Lots of firsts on this trip!

We have the applications fill out but the office in our town is only open 10-2 Mon-Fri. DD has perfect attendance at school and even to take her out at lunch time would ruin that. I finally found an office about 40 minutes away and called today for times and to plead my case. Luckily this office is open until 4:00pm (DD gets out of school at 2:45) and we can be there by 3:30pm baring any traffic problems. The woman I spoke to was very nice and when I explained my problem with school, she said it wouldn't be an issue at all, that they understood and would help us with the entire process. So happy!

My plan is to leave work early, pick up DS at 2:20pm and be to DD's school by 2:40pm. If DD's class comes straight out and we can get back to the car and get out of the parking lot before the rush, we should be just fine getting to the office with time to spare. DH will meet us there as both parents have to be there for minors. There is a form a parent can fill out if they can't be there, but we decided it would just be easier for us both to be there.

I'll let y'all know tomorrow how this worked out for us. Oh, and then we have to get right back to our town for DD's dance class at 4:45pm. I have every confidence that everything will go completely smoothly as planned.

Well, no passports for us today. Our office is playing musical supervisors and DH is one of those moving. He had meetings about this today and couldn't leave. Bummer. This evening we tried to go to CVS to have the pictures taken. Cheaper (plus I found a coupon) and thought it would speed up the process tomorrow. The girl at CVS had never done the pictures tomorrow, but she gave it a good try. Got the pictures taken, but she wasn't able to process them, as the system kept giving an error. She said their resident expert would be in tomorrow morning and would process and print them. I'll be able to pick them up on my way to get the kids from school.

I do have a couple of other things to share. Last week I received a FedEx envelope from Disney. Not sure what it could be but any Disney mail is welcome in this house. I opened it up to find this.


A nice note and four $50 gift cards. I wasn't really sure why I got them, then I decided that they must be instead of the ship board credit I was to receive.

Today I emailed my contact at Disney with a couple of questions. I was wondering how the reservations for Palo's and the Spa were going to work. I've been reading the difficulties others are having with making reservations and while I have a hard time asking about something someone is giving me for free, I don't want to miss out if there is something I need to do. I received the nicest note back telling me to not worry about a thing, they are already taken care of all of our reservations and a week before the cruise, we will receive documentation with everything lined out for us. All we need to do is show up and enjoy our cruise. I have never had anyone make reservations and an itinerary for me before. This is so awesome!

Hey we just did the drill today!!! I did take my son out of school but it was at lunch and recess and they didn't count it as a day out!!! Our hours were 10 to 3. Nice, huh for families.
