I believe you can only be invited into the group if you are friends with one of the members of the group. SO if anyone else on our sailing would like to join the "Eastern Caribbean Disney Fantasy August 24 - 31, 2013" group, request to be my friend.

Kerrykerr, my husband and I took this itinerary 3 years ago on the Magic. Loved it! St. Maarten was great since you could just walk off the ship and into town. There are beaches right there as well.
St. Thomas you could walk into Charlotte Amalie, but it's a little far. I would suggest a taxi or tram if they have those.
Castaway Cay was by far our favorite port. We spent most of our time on the Adults only beach but we did the Stingray adventure which I would highly recommend. I was hoping Disney would continue the 5 night cruise with two stops to Castaway Cay but alas they did not.

I am not EXACTLY sure how the magnet exchange works since I never did one, but what I gathered on the boards is that the FE gift is some sort of magnet. If anyone knows more that me, PLEASE correct me if I am wrong. I did get a few magnets as FE gifts last month and I really enjoyed them! I think the magnets would be much easier to pack to bring on and off the ship. I just did another search about a magnet exchange and didn't find that much more info. I will do some more research since we have time and let you know what I discover.
I would be up for a magnet/FE exchange. The FE gifts can get out of control and take up a lot of space so the magnet idea is appealing. Can I suggest giving a magnet that represents the area/state you live? I am in Ohio, so my immediate thought is a Buckeye themed magnet. Another idea is we could pick a theme, such as a Pirate theme, and give magnets relating to that??? Just a suggestion!

Hello. We just booked this cruise about 10 days ago while aboard the Dream for a 5-night cruise (CC double-dip). It is myself, DW (we'll both be 41 at the time of cruise), DS (11 at time of cruise), and DD (8 at time of cruise). I'll be looking forward to seeing the differences between the Dream & Fantasy.

Thanks.


We seriously considered the Magic cruise out of NYC that you were just on since we live here in NYC. However, in the end, we decided we wanted to be on one of the new ships and the two visits to CC really appealed to us. Combine those reasons with the fact that even with airfare and spending a few nights in Orlando after the cruise at the Renaissance (and visiting Seaworld and Aquatica) it was still cheaper than the NYC/Magic cruise...it was an easy choice.

We've actually done the Dream twice and the Wonder once before we sailed the Magic. I had considered going on the Fantasy this year but it was actually cheaper for us to do the NYC cruise. I couldn't pass up the convenience. We had a great time.

I see several members of our last cruise are here and look fotward to seeing them as well as all that are in this group.We would be interested in joining the facebook group and the F/E activity.We did F/E on last trip and it was a lot of fun we enjoyed the gifts as well as setting up and distributing them.We have stayed in St.Thomas several times and love the island there are many day excursions to enjoy. I will try to supply some links and recommendations in future posts for those interested.As for St.Marten we were there only one time on a cruise and went on a pirate ship excursion thru DCL it was ok but I wouldn't do it again.I would like to go to the beach at the end of the airport that looks to be a unique experience.

FB add and FE request

Hi All,

I just booked two cabins on this cruise. My 20 yr DS, 10 yr DS, 8 yr DS and myself in one cabin and a very good friend and his 10 yr DD and 8 yr DD in the other. We are celebrating 3 birthdays and my 4th anniversary of remission from Stage IV cancer. Lots to celebrate!! All 5 kids are SUPER excited and I know they will be over the moon. To add to the excitement I just love the FE idea and would love to participate. My boys I know for a fact will LOVE to come back and find little gifts.

I would also love to be added to the FB group. My FB ID is Kelli Kelly. It is me with my face painted like the chesire cat. Believe it or not there are many Kelli Kelly's on Facebook.

Thanks all. Looking forward to meeting new friends!
