Boy that's a tough question Georgia. Here's a little known fact. Rental cars companies in Florida are prevented by law from gouging you on one-way rentals.

Many people (including us) rent a car at MCO and return it at the port. The Hertz counter in Port Canaveral is located in the parking lot of the Residence Inn. They also have a shuttle to the port. So our intention is to rent a car when we arrive on Friday, use it Saturday for KSC, Cocoa Beach, etc and then return it and take advantage of the Hertz shuttle (or Residence I suppose) to get to the shop Sunday morning.

I cannot believe that I haven't been on here since November...my goodness time flies! I know that some people are against using Facebook for DisMeet threads, but it was so much easier on my last cruise since I have Facebook on my phone and could more easily access updates and new posts.

If I'm not mistaken, I volunteered to keep up with the FE list for our cruise, lol. So far, I have the following people wishing to participate (once I figure out how to share Excel files, I'll send everyone a link to that):

momm2four (1 adult)
travelgal (1 adult)
tngirl (not sure how many)
trixieS (2 adults, 1 18/15/12 years olds)

That's all I have for sure, Policycobb, let me know if you wish for me to add your group.

Samommy: The Fish Extender game is a little like reverse trick or treat. You bring items for each cabin/person on the list and at some point during the cruise, you take it by their cabin and drop it into the Fish Extender (some type of pocket/bag that is hung by the door) so that they get a surprise when returning to their room.

Some people go all out and handcraft items and some people just go simple and bring things like magnets or food items from their hometown (For example: Chattanooga, TN is known for Moonpies, so I gave everyone a mini moonpie in the FE) I guess I can't do that for this cruise now that i've told my secret, lol. You can do a search on here for Fish Extender ideas as there are several threads with ideas/pictures.

Let me know if you wish to join. I need room number and who is going to be in your room (sex/age)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Dreary and rainy here in Chattanooga...AGAIN...I don't think we've seen the sun since last weekend, and it's looking like Mon/Tues will bring even heavier showers. I need a deck cool1:

Facebook page!

Hey gang, I have started a FB page to help us get to know each other better. I have done this on several cruises. The page is set up as a secret page so neither the page nor the posts will show up for anyone else to see.

Just send me a friend request on FB hamandayoung@facebook.com and I will add you to the secret site!

Amanda

No worries on passing. The closer to sail date the Facebook page will get REALLY chatty, it can be a bit to keep up with but it is also a way to have more "private" conversations and planning info so keep it in mind for later. We will always post "important" stuff on both sites. The four of us (Fab4 DISmoms) are pros at "talking" on two cruise meets at once!

Hello all you newcomers!!
No intention of renting a car Mike at all. We drive on the other side of the road over here in our small country city and we dont fancy taking on big city driving from the wrong side. Wasnt sure if we would be able to get a cab from KSC to the hotel or not, maybe I should contact the hotel.
Thanks for your help!

I don't know about you guys, but I could use some sunshine...I don't know when the last sunny day we had was, seriously. We have had rain for about six days in a row, to the point where we were even delayed for two hours for school this morning. A few school systems even cancelled. Tomorrow is calling for more rain turning into maybe snow. I desperately need Castaway Cay!!!

Policycobb, I have you down for the FE group
