We are from SC, VA, TN and FL and we are so thrilled to be sailing together again! I'm sure they will join the thread shortly, we just booked yesterday!!

Looking forward to getting to know you all!
Welcome aboard! That's cool that you're sailing with previous cruisers that you met onboard.

We haven't decided where we're going pre or post cruise, but usually we drive down on the Saturday and stay somewhere within an hour of the port. Usually we stay in Orlando/Kissimmee pre cruise. Then after the cruise we stay one or two days somewhere along the coast before we drive home.

This weekend (we go on Carnival on Sunday) we're staying in Kissimmee Saturday night and then in Melbourne Beach next Thursday. Then we come home on Friday.

Welcome!

In the thread for our cruise last year someone started a Friday countdown and I really liked it.

This year we've had a double countdown. Last Friday was 53 more for our Dream cruise and 1 more for Carnival. This Friday will be 52 and 0 more Fridays!

Hi all!!! I am the third member of the quartet who bonded for 1 1/2 years before we finally met on the Fantasy this past June. So excited to join this thread and looking forward to getting to know everyone

TNgrl78, I will have to admit, I am super curious as to whether we know each other...I was telling Michelle (whitfive) that Chattanooga is not a tiny town, but in some other ways it has a smaller town feel to it. I live in Hixson...do you mind if I ask what part you live?

LOVE the counting Friday's idea!

My sister-in-law and her family live in Ooltewah...I'll be coming that way tomorrow night for the Hixson vs. East Hamilton Co. football game. I feel a little like David facing Goliath in that one, lol, but our boys have done so well, which is especially sweet since everyone was saying we wouldn't win any games this year.

Anyway, nice to meet another neighbor

A little about me... When we sail, I will be 45 (gasp ) This trip will be my fourth Disney cruise and will mark the occasion of me sailing on all four ships I teach 7th grade math and love my job..most of the time. I have four sons. My youngest is 11 and my oldest will be 17 in 3 days, so you can see we packed them in pretty close My husband is a supervisor for UPS and is a saint for putting up with me, however I have no qualms about leaving them for a 4 night girls only trip, lol

Well, I'm off to work. Hope everyone has wonderful day!

We are:
Scott - DH48
Brandi - DW34
Connor - DS8

One thing you may or may not notice... is that both of us (Scott and Brandi) this same account.

Right now... this is Scott.

When the account was setup, Brandi set it up using her moniker...but she used my contact information so everything would go to my email. So we both use it.

Most often it will be me posting, but occasionally Brandi will too.

That's cool that you'll get to be on all 4 ships. We'd like to do that someday. As you can see, we've been on the Wonder twice and the Dream twice. I think our next one will be one of the longer cruises on the Fantasy in 2014 maybe.

Momm2four - is your oldest's birthday on the 7th? The family we are going with on Carnival this Sunday, their oldest turns 18 on the 7th. They will be on this Dream cruise next year too... so she will turn 19 one day into the cruise.

Scott

Only 54 more Fridays!

Happy Friday everyone!
We're back and we had a really good time. It wasn't a Disney ship, but the Glory was fine (after I got over myself about it not being Disney - LOL!) Our stateroom was quite comfortable, even though it didn't have a split bathroom or a sitting room. We sure did miss the Disney ships though and are so grateful to be going on the Dream next year!

I look to your review of Carnival when you get back - have a great time!!

Yes, my son's birthday is the 7th..I actually feel a litte guilty that I will be on the Dream next year when he turns 18, but he told me that it was really ok. We are the kind of family who thinks that you can celebrate something on any day, not just "the" day itself.

Hope everyone's day went well. Ours was a little crazy. Our PTA did a movie/popcorn day for anyone who joined PTA, so classes were shortened, schedules were switched all around, and we had to monitor kids in the movie or those who didn't go to the movie for two hours. Add that to the fact that today was the last day for the kids before Fall Break started, and it was one WILDDDD day, lol. I called my kids and said "Be ready when I get home, we're going to a movie" lol....of course I then proceeded to sleep through 1/3 of the movie

Hi Y'all! I'm the fourth and final "Fab 4 DisMom" -fashionably late, as usual.
You all will certainly enjoy cruising with these gals-I certainly have.

I LOVE the idea of only counting Fridays! This should be a breeze considering how long our tickers were for our June Fantasy cruise.

Looking forward to "meeting" all of you here before we sail. About me: happily married a long time, 2 great kids (ask me sometime about "Flat Stanley"), and back in training mode for the Princess Half Marathon. (Working on getting a Fab 4 DisMom Team for that one, too.

Don't forget about the 5K on the island!

Fish Extenders? Who's in?

Do they have a 5K for the 4 night cruises? I'm going to have to say that I will meet you at the finish line on this one....I already have the t-shirt, and since that was my main motivation for doing the one in June, I will pass on the 5K in favor of waiting for you with a Konk Kooler in hand

I'm up for the FE exchange! I will have to be a little more crafty this time

I think we're going to do the 5K next year too. A bunch of us will!

And we're in for the FE too. What I've seen on other threads is they've created a separate thread altogether for the FE list. We could do that...or just do it in this one. But I know we're in and also the family we're going with will be in...we're making them!

We're off tomorrow morning to head down for our cruise on Sunday. It will be strange sitting on the Sensation while looking out at the Dream, but we'll manage and we'll have a great time too!

Oh... and by the way...

Only 52 more Fridays!

Scott

I'll volunteer to keep up with the FE list if that's okay with everyone here. I've never headed one up before, but am willing to do it The only way I know to do it is to create an Excel doc and then share it with everyone later?

People can simply post on here or send me an message if they wish to participate. I need everyone's names (please designate boy/girl since some names could be either one ), ages at the time of sailing and room numbers.

If there is anything else I'm forgetting please let me know.

Excited about it but trying to keep it on the back burner at least until we get back from Disneyland in Nov of THIS year.
So Mike, where will you spend the night on the 4th? I had been thinking of heading to Port canaveral a day early to do KSC too but wasnt sure where we could stay.
