I wanted to do one of the dessert things, but we couldn't get res's at Ohana until 925pm. :/ I keep looking to move it earlier. The best I've gotten is 10 min earlier *LOL*

Here is our current list link-https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkIxIiMtjoLedHZ5S2lObHhjWDlxZVQ5MWhPNnoxT 0E&usp=sharing

If my system seems too confusing, I can organize the info in a different way. This is just a draft as some staterooms may be exchanging with the whole group. As of today, the yellow group "A" will exchange and include the "A/B" green group. The blue group "B" will exchange and include the "A/B" green group.

KSLATL suggested assigning certain days to deliver so that the gifts are spread out well. I think that it's a nice idea, and is just an optional suggestion. I placed a number 1-7 next to each stateroom, but if you prefer to deliver on another day, please do what works best for you.

This is my first FE exchange, so please share any suggestions. Also, if you have any corrections for me, don't hesitate to PM or email at becca.zpack@gmail.com.

See you all in 1 month and 6 days!

Becca you have done an amazing job organizing the group. Thank you sooo much.

Can't wait to meet you all.

We booked the Dessert and Fireworks at Tomorrowland Terrace. It's going to be a looooooooong day so it will be nice to sit down and relax before heading back to the ship.

Texas residents

For those who live in tx, are you driving in the night before or morning of? We're out in temple, and I thought we'd do the 4 hr drive the morning of the 10th to make our 1200 embarkation time, but now I'm freaking out that something will happen and we'll miss the ship!

Thoughts?

We live in Dallas and always go down the night before. We are staying at the Springhill Suites on Galveston island it's a decent hotel and not very expensive. For us it cuts down a lot of stress going down the night before eating the free breakfast and getting up later and heading to the boat.

Thanks for reminding me about this Dessert Party! I've been checking for availability periodically, but it had slipped my mind the past few weeks. Just went to the WDW site and booked it!

It took some debate but we're leaving the night before. Like you said just in case something happens. Never been to Galveston and with our luck we'd get lost. Got a free night at a la quinta so thought we'd use it before it expires.

We are only 2hrs, 15 min from Galveston. Cruise a lot out of Galveston and usually drive down the day before, that is if the hotel prices aren't out of site. With the cruise leaving on a Fri, the hotels prices for Thurs. are very reasonable. Have found it is just fun to start the vacation a day early and no stress about getting to the ship on time especially with the Houston traffic on a week day. Also, a lot of the hotels allow you to park your car for the duration of the cruise for free and many have free shuttles to the port and back. We are staying at the Four Points.

We decided to do Animal Kingdom first since we've never been there. Not sure where we will be after that. We are going to end our day at Epcot. We've signed up for the Illuminations port adventure. It was highly recommended here on the boards. It allows you a private seating area, and desserts are served while you have prime viewing for the fireworks show at the end of the day. According to the reports of past cruisers, they will then escort you to a waiting bus to make it back to port. Will be nice not to have to find seating for the fireworks or scramble for a bus.
We have been to WDW many times, so think we'll just stick with going to Epcot and Hollywood. Imagine we will head back to the ship fairly early since we have seen all the fireworks shows.

Maybe we will be assigned together!! We are also big RCCL fans and cruisers.

Another question!! Does Disney stick to the assigned embarkation time you are assigned? DH loves to get to the port early and since we just booked, the earliest time we could get was 12:30. Just wondered if they would really turn us away if we showed up early.

We are driving down morning of. We live in Houston and it's <1 hr usually to get to Galveston. We'll probably leave 10-1030am (I think our boarding time is 12) I'm not worried about getting there. DH is going to drop me and DD off so we don't have to pay for parking down there.

We are flying in the day before and staying at the Hotel Galvez in Galveston the night before. I hope we have a smooth travel day, so we get in to Galveston and can enjoy some of local spots since we have never been there before.

The Magic will be back in Galveston tomorrow but since the weather is supposed to be nice here again, I doubt we will watch her sail away.

I have been looking at pics from our last cruise & I can't get over how much DD has grown.
