I often feel that way. lol Yesterday I was telling my sister about the FE activity and all the stuff I'm doing and she said, this is for a 3 day cruise? I said, yes. She said, three days? So I guess to a non cruiser or Disney person, it seems excessive. I'm not really a Disney person. Haven't been to the Magic Kingdom in more than 30 years and this is our first Disney cruise but I like to be involved and do fun things and it doesn't matter if it's only 3 days.

I did most of my FE yesterday. It's bigger than I thought it would be. Longer and wider. The pockets are HUGE. But it's cute. I still need to add some final flare to it.

I'm making shirts for the pirate party.

It does seem like a lot to do for just a short cruise... or for a cruise in general. But for us, it adds to the mystique of a Disney cruise. We've been on 4 cruises and have been involved in FE's 3 times. And thinking back, it brings back fond memories of the cruise, and especially for our 9 year old son. That makes it worth it for us.

Hi all, we leave for the airport today and fly out to NYC tomo. I am so excited. Our FE gifts take up on whole suitcase! I am not at all crafty so Im sorry to say all of your gifts are Australian themed! I do hope you like them.
I hope we can have some sort of get together, either before the sail away party or maybe on the at sea day.
Looking forward to meeting you all.
See you on board

Regards Georga

Welcome!!!

We technically "closed" the group September 2 - allowing people to craft and shop with about a month prep time. We can add you to the list, however every cabin on the list may not be able to participate as they may have limited quantities or in some cases have already left home. If you are good with that, we would love to you have.

How much time is there after the drill and before sailaway? I'd like to get together. I may have a 'kid' situation and have to see what they want to do, etc. But I'm game!

Hey all!


To answer Allison's question, wedding plans are coming along. As I like to say, we are "in the weeds" now. Lots of final details and things we've put off piling up.

Personally, I'm ready for Sept. 28th (the wedding) and then Oct 3 (the last day of work before our honeymoon begins)!!!

Anyone make plans for Nassau? Any fun excursions planned?

Cheers,
Josh

Welcome! I can add you to my list. Just post your info.


Josh, happy to hear your wedding plans are going smoothly. I am planning on staying on the ship in Nassau. We were on a big family Carnival cruise last year and did the dolphin excursion at Blue Lagoon. It was great. Too expensive to do two years in a row. My daughter would love to do it again. The Sea Lions were so cute. I would like to do that but we spent our excursion money to go MNSSHP after the cruise.

Nassau- We are doing Astrada Gardens & Zoo. Coming off a week long beach vacation, I thought the kids would prefer a break from the sand.
