The anticipation is painful! I thought a room was usually assigned about 2 weeks out, but I have heard nothing.

Will we get an e-mail, or should I just keep checking my Disney Cruise account?

Hello! We booked a VGT for this cruise and were assigned today! Deck 6 category 5B. Maybe you'll hear today too!

We JUST booked this cruise on Saturday!
Of course we missed all the sign ups, but are excited to go anyway.

The military fare just can't be beat- we saved $$$....

We're a bit disappointed that we couldn't book the illuminations event, evidently they only have room for 1 person and we're a party of 2. Oh well...

Did you do magnets/t-shirts/lanyards/pins? Just wondering if anyone will be wearing anything that we might get to recognise.

Jim
There's a pirate night buffet in Topsiders that starts around 10:30 pm. It has turkey legs, Mexican items (taco makings) and a variety of desserts. Kind of heavy stuff for late night but we enjoy it!

Know I can get luggage tags at the port just wondered if Disney's documents are like all the other cruise lines and not needed. I have the boarding paperwork that I printed from web site.

We normally wouldn't take a Disney Cruise, especially by ourselves without grandkids, but couldn't resist the itinerary and great military discount. DH is AF retired 06.

Just back Thurs from Panama Canal cruise, had excursion with several families on Disney Magic in Grand Cayman. They all were raving about their cruise, food & service and assured us the adults only areas weren't crowded...lol.
Can't believe the TA tossed your booklet! There is nothing in it that you really need. Like you said, you can get luggage tags at the port. As long as you've printed out the boarding paperwork, which you said you had, you should be good to go!

Thanks for the good vibes. We too received a category 5B, but on deck 7. Last time we were on Deck 6 and loved it.

It feels real now, can't wait. We bought a big poster-board at Kroger and created a countdown calendar for the kids. They get to make a big 'X' each night before bed on the date, and they are getting so excited.

We hit the Disney Outlets and stocked up on new shirts and pjs for the entire family. there is an Outlet in route from Houston to Galveston, so I imagine there are plenty of cruisers that shop here.

That's so unfortunate that our hotel doesn't have the wow factor ... if only we had discovered this board before we booked!
We will do our best to check out other hotels... thanks so much foe the heads up!!

Only a few days left now! Amazing how time flies!!! I have a feeling it's going to be an amazing cruise ... you all are so friendly and helpful!!!

You might see if you can transfer your reservations to The Woodlands Waterway Marriott a great hotel in The Woodlands with shops, mall and plenty to do. About 20 minutes from IAH.

Yes you did!
I'm so jealous- We'll be getting off of the Magic when you're getting on! Or are you doing a B2B?

One of our friends (Disney CM) will be making the trip across with you. He's been requested to 'work' the cruise (photographer).

Are you doing this one as well? It's great to 'see' you!

We will (although we're not holding our breath).
