That would be a coincidence!! I had been communicating with a woman on DisBoards in preparation for our Disneyland trip and ended up in line with her at Cars Land! Never met before, but ended up chatting together in the middle of a group of thousands. Small world!

Absolutely you can!

Animal Kingdom can easily be done in one day.

This will be our first DCL experience and we are so excited! It will be myself, DH, DS (11), DS (8), my DSIL and her boyfriend. Can someone explain the fish extender game?
Thanks!

There are metal "fish" by each door. A lot of people make stockings or holders called extenders and then get a big group of people online to basically put treats into each of the stockings on the list. (Shrug) Held no appeal to my family and I on our last cruise, but we saw quite a few people doing it.

I think on the Dream there are other marine creatures besides fish on the door, but it to holds zero interest for us as well. Just that much more I have to take with me.

Speaking of things you have to bring with you on the ship, I don't know if you folks are aware, but you can FedEx things to the ship that will be delivered to your stateroom on the first afternoon. We spent a few days at Universal (Harry Potter) before our first Dream cruise, so instead of packing for the whole time, we shipped a lot of clothes, pull-ups (etc) to the room so we didn't have to pack as much. Worked beautifully!

Since we are staying at the same resort at WDW before and after this cruise we are just leaving what we don't need at the resort.

Hi! I am in the process of booking this cruise. Very excited. We sailed on the Dream in July of 2011 for a five day. Two stops at Castaway Cay. I could live there. It was wonderful except for our family member who had to leave the ship by ambulance when we docked. We now purchase travel insurance.

My daughter, who will be 8 at the end of the month, loves the fish extender exchange. I can see how it wouldn't appeal to some. I liked it too. We are driving this year so I don't have the luggage restricitions as I did flying. I received some neat things from England and candies from other states that I probably would have never known about or been able to try. There are three of us going, two adults and an eight year old girl.

Good morning everyone!

Just checking in and joining the fun! I just booked this cruise as a planned honeymoon! My girlfriend (soon to be fiancé...planning my proposal now!) and I are planning to get married in late September.

This will be my 6th DCL vacation and her 1st! I've never cruised on a Dream Class ship before! We are very excited to be on board!
