How nice. My dad usually comes with us but for some reason doesn't want to this year. He may meet us in Disney. He'll be 67 in June. He had triple bypass two weeks ago. Maybe he will be feeling better and decide to come along. He is the fun one of our bunch.

Thanks...I hope your Dad makes it too.

We almost convinced my Mom and Dad to come with us in 2010, but they decided not to. This past Thanksgiving we lost my Mom (just 3 weeks after they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary) so we are really glad he is coming this time. We've even got him talked into doing the FE and dressing up for pirate night! Or I should say, Brandi has him talked into dressing up...she has a way of talking him into things, so it should be fun.

Scott, I'm glad he's coming as well. When my dad passed away (at age 59), the hardest part was knowing that my mom was alone without her best friend of 32 years. It was good though knowing she stayed busy.

As far as dressing up...how many of you do dress up for pirate night? I never have, but am now traveling with supermoms who sew so who knows what we might do, lol.

No pirate night for me. Not a fan. I only Ike the fireworks. I should say my whole life I have never like dressing in a costume, even as a kid for Halloween, so it's just not my thing.

I don't think we will dress up either. I may find Emily a costume if she would like to dress up. I can't sew.

Has anyone tried Palo or Remy? I am thinking about trying to book a Palo brunch.

We have done Palo for dinner and brunch. Brunch was my favorite of the two. We also did Remy on the Fantasy and if you are into that kind of dining...it is NOT to be missed!! It was FABULOUS!!! Worth every penny!! We didn't get the wine pairing but did have a wonderful bottle of wine with our dinner.

As I am cruising with the Fab4 DISmoms this time around, some of us are doing Palo brunch but we all are skipping Remy this trip.

I think we will try to add a brunch when the time comes. Emily enjoyed the kids club two years ago. I think she won't mind going while we are having a fancy brunch.

I talked to her last night and she does want to dress up for pirates night if I can find a blue pirate costume for her. We have plenty of time to try to find or put something together. I'll be hitting some garage sales this spring/summer.

We dressed up for pirate night last time. My wife made cool family t-shirts with Mickey head skull and crossbones, pirate hats and a plastic sword for the boy. (see my profile photo) Shipped it all from home to save money. Didn't dress elaborately, just enough to participate in the fun with the other families. Lots of people didn't dress up... others dressed in theater quality pirate costumes. We thought the deck party was a lot of fun... that said, it was pretty late in the evening by the time the fireworks went off, so although we stayed up to watch them my little boy was EXTREMELY tired after the fact.

We are only bringing the clothes we need to go to the wedding and four nights of evening clothes and four days of clothes. The rest of our stuff will be at AKL. We really want to try to travel light on this one.

We're in too!

Hello all!

It's our very first cruise and our first family trip to WDW (DW and I visited WDW and IOA back in 2000).

We're vacationing with another family and it's their first Disney Cruise too.

I've been scouring the forums trying to learn about the tips/tricks/activities. We're also looking forward to seeing Atlantis during our shore day so if you have any experience with the water slide rental via CS I'd appreciate reading about it.

And speaking of tips - thanks for the post about the webcam. I'll have to show our boys the Dream leaving the port.

Good night!
