It was decided to split the group into two when the number of cabins that wanted to participate started getting large. Some people opted to participate with just one group to keep the # of gifts at a manageable level, and some opted to join both groups. A 3rd group was created for the "latecomers" who wanted to join in on the FE after the original group closed to new sign ups in early April.

I hope I am doing this right.... I was just on Pintrest and found this fun website! My parents, husband, son and I will all be sailing on this cruise with ya'll. I was just reading about the 'fish extenders', are there people participating in that on this cruise?

Yes and today is the last day to sign up! I have not posted enough to send you the direct link but go back to page 42 on this thread and GArriola posted the link to the FE group. Make sure you do it tonight as that is supposed to be the deadline for late entries! Sounds like a fun thing to do

Okay lets see if this works. FE link:

I got something like that several weeks ago except mine doesn't say Castaway Club on it. Is that different?

Or maybe mine is different because this is our first Disney cruise.

You're right Gail! You'll be a Silver Castaway Club member after your first cruise. Each family member will have their own Castaway Cay number.

Magic in Galveston Today

The Magic is docking in Galveston this morning & leaving later today on our same itinerary . In fact we were originally on this sailing, but switched so we could celebrate DD's b-day on board.

Two more and we get Gold

Now that we have the final count for the FE I have a question, are we meeting before the lifeboat drill to give updates on cabins? Some are still TBD and with a list this size I wouldn't be surprised if some people get changes from things like upgrades and such. Or will we have a specific cabin to leave changes at? Like having a dry erase to mark cabin changes for all to check?

Amy will be ordering our stuff today. Due to the nature of her business we are able to get enough for all cabins (we are doing a cabin based vs stuff for each person) well within the budget. Actually doing all is cheaper than just our list due to volume discounts :D

Wow, a lot of AF heading out. Got this poor squid outnumbered

Zandersmom is going to have a whiteboard on her room and she's pretty literally in all ways in the middle of the group. If you have a stateroom update you need to make, you need to put it on the whiteboard by dinner (is that fair?) on embarkation day? Just so people know where to deliver things.

just FYI, I locked the editing of the late entry FE, since you guys were closing it. If you need to change a room or something, PM me or email me.

Thanks for everyone's efforts on the FE. I hosted one on our last cruise for a much smaller number and it was quite a bit of effort.

SO funny!

Looks like the three FE groups ended up being roughly equal sizes which is pretty cool, too!

Movies Onboard

I know they will probably show Iron Man 3 on board but does anyone know if they'll show Monsters University? Or is that too soon and wishful thinking?
