OMG! My good karma was in full force this morning!

So I logged into my reservation and it said "last day to book" on the activities. And out of habit, I went to Day 4 Castaway Cay looking and hoping for a Family Beach Cabana...and it was THERE! Family Beach Cabana #5. So I quickly clicked on it and it woudn't let me add it to my cart ! So I called Disney Reservations and Jan could see the cabana too, but said it shouldn't be showing because the online bookings closed yesterday...but she could sense how muchI wanted it and would do whatever she could to get it for me. Well Jan called Elaine and together they got the beach cabana for us!

I am beyond excited since we are celebrating DD's birthday on this cruise.

We are only a party of 3 (DD turns 3 on the cruise), so we are open to sharing the cabana with another family since it does accomodate up to 10.

We are celebrating my birthday on this cruise! A family of 4. What is the price of the cabana?

Congrats on your great snag! It's always so fun when something like that happens.

I went back and looked at the Navigator from the Jan 18th & Feb 15. They moved up an hour on Saturday evening. Then moved back on Thursday evening. I'm sure the Captain can do it different on our cruise. But is is posted in the Navigator.

Amy's printing up our door magnets today. I went and got the door hanger and our thank you envelopes printed (since our printer doesn't like card stock) for the tips.

Anyone else going to decorate their doors? I love to go see them and take pics.

Got a set of black and white WDW pictures printed on magnetic sheeting at our local Disney Store outlet. The lady at the checkout counter told me they previously sold markers, but were out. I colored them with Sharpies. Instant door decorations!

Yep, we are! I've made both magnets and "ears" for the door to change out every couple of days.

Enjoy the cabana. I was planning on letting everyone know that I was releasing it, but I did not get around to it. They sure are a great treat for Castaway Cay!!!

We are all packed and ready to head to Galveston tomorrow. DH teaches part-time at a local university, so as soon as he gives his final tomorrow, finalizes grades, and gets them posted, we will head north!

We've had an unexpected bump in the road. DH's 93 yr. old aunt, who lives in a nearby town, fell and broke her hip. They performed surgery last night, so we went to see her in the hospital today. She is alert, but not happy about this adventure. Seems to be doing well despite her circumstance. She will go to rehab by Friday.

Wishing all safe travels.

Sorry to hear about your Aunt's fracture, and I hope that she heals well! Regarding the Fisney stroller, you can just rent at the gate. The only drawback is that they are hard rather than soft seats. I'd recommend bringing a colorful bandana to tie to the handle to distinguish from the herd if other dis strollers.

Safe travels everyone!
