We got ours, too! I let out a little squeal of excitement when I saw it! Then I showed my daughter the book and she started to walk off with it... told her she could look at it, but couldn't keep it.

So excited!

I had to hide our book. Anything with Mickey on the cover winds up in DDs stash of books & I would be lucky to ever see it again.

Yucky, raining Easter weekend here. So dreaming about our cruise today.

Ha! We'd have to do the same thing. Showed DS a few YouTube vids of the Disney Magic, and he freaked. "Mickey Mouse boat! Mickey Mouse boat!"

Can't wait

As soon as my daughter was done looking at the book, I took it and put it with the rest of my vacation information before she could think about writing in it (or worse).

We went to the Kemah Boardwalk for an Easter egg hunt today. I kept referring to the employees as cast members and called the Boardwalk FantaSea the Disney FantaSea. Lol! Yeah... I think I'm ready for this vacation!

We are getting pretty large, yet I don't think that we have enough to consider splitting. Let's see what happens this last week, if that's okay with everyone. I am no FE expert, though greatly looking forward to our fun cruise.
Here is the link to our current FE list-
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...0E&usp=sharing
I have highlighted each of our staterooms. Please check your stateroom(s) for accuracy and let me know if it looks okay or needs revision. You can pm me or email to becca.zpack@gmail.com. Work and family is keeping me pretty busy lately, so I may have a short delay in responding to messages. I apologize in advance and look forward to lots relaxation and fun in May.

Cheers!
We decided to join the FE group since we enjoyed participating on our last cruise. We are a group of 3 adults. I've sent an email to your gmail address with our info. Thanks!

No booklet for us today

Not on the FE group yet >.> <.< I originally was going to just do my DD, but I may participate too. Why not?

Still looking for suggestions/ideas/guidelines on what to give for FEs. This is our first time doing it!

When we went last October with our boys (3 & 4), the Oceaneer's Club was perfect for them. The bigger kids were in the Lab, and there were plenty of activities and choices for the littler ones in the Club. Storytime, computers, movie, visits from Characters (Mickey Mouse came and inducted all of the kids into the Mickey Mouse Club).

The counselors do a great job remembering the kids, and the highlight was the show the kids put on during their last day. You get to sit in one of the theaters and watch your little one on stage singing, etc. They get a t-shirt to remember this by, and you get a lifetime of memories. This wasn't published anywhere, but thankfully one of the counselors told us about this and we made sure to have the boys in the Club that day.

We joined this great group and pulled the trigger on a VGT rate. We had great luck in our Oct cruise (had a 5C room assigned), and are praying we are blessed with a great room this time too!

May 10 can't get here soon enough!

Time to start hitting the Disney outlets and stocking up on shirts, PJs, and new water bottles. It is nice that Houston has 2 Disney Outlets, including the one on the way to Galveston (Tanger http://www.tangeroutlet.com/houston/directions).

The boys (3 & 4) are already asking if we leave tomorrow for the cruise...Their excitement is worth the investment already.

I'm sure Becca will get you added to the FE as long as you PMd or emailed her.

I've only participated in one prior FE, but I found good ideas in a couple of threads on these boards and also on Pinterest if you're crafty at all. Just google ideas for FE gifts.

Our youngest sons are 10 and 11 and although they won't be joining me on this cruise, they really enjoyed participating in the FE. They are also helping me prepare for this one even though they won't be on the cruise. Your daughter would probably enjoy helping with some of the crafty gifts.

It's going to be a fun cruise!

Just curious if your DS will be 3 before sailing or while on board. Our DD turns 3 our first @ Sea day. We plan to register her for kid's club on board since we can't do it pre-cruise because her age is officially still 2 for this cruise. I have no clue how much time she will want to spend in the club. I have read various reviews from didn't want to stay to wanted to spend as much time as possible & cried when picked up ! DD's phases change quickly, so in 40 days I have no clue what to expect.

Documents Queston

I finally sat down this morning to go through our documents for the cruise. I noticed that in the Vacation Summary & throughout my DD's name has the last name twice. The only thing that has her correct name our the luggage tags.

I logged into my reservation and checked and her name is correct in the reservation. Do you think this mix up on the documents could cause us any problems? Should I call Disney reservations?

Thanks!

Hi SapphireMind,
I've started to add you all in the FE group, though maybe I missed your email. Can I have your names and stateroom number? Any allergies or special celebrations? As for FE ideas, I found a lot on the main cruise disboard when I searched FE threads, on pinterest, as well as etsy.
Thanks!
