my DS (11) keeps bugging me to ask you if your son likes sports- he is planning to spend lots of time on Goofy's sports deck! 15 more days!!

Hi Gang!

I am updated the FE lists and will send them out ASAP. We got some crazy snow yesterday and all my plans got shifted around for this weekend. Thanks for your quick responses, though. I am REALLY looking forward to this cruise and some sunshine.

Please, please, please, please, please send me an email ASAP with your info. I'm trying to finalize the latecomer FE list and need your names, cabin # and if you are celebrating anything. My email is hhroth at gmail dot com.

Hi Kristen-


My son billy (12) does like sports although not very athletic. He is on the wrestling team at the middle school though. They have regionals tomorrow. Giving it his best shot! Will you be at the meet party on vista lounge at 3pm the day we sail?

What room are you? We are 11004!
Ellen

We will try hard to make it to the Vista Cafe at 3. We have no stateroom as of yet... We booked at VGT restricted rate: we do not get to choose: must wait for DCL to assign us a start room!! The wait is driving me crazy but we should find out within the next couple days! Hoping for at least deck 8 or 9!

I really hope our FE gifts turn out well! I'm new at this and feel a little lost! I spent almost a year planning our last WDW trip and have only had the cruise booked for a month. . Do any other first timers feel the same? Or is it just my OCD nature? Lol! I have to say I am very excited about it. This will be a whole new experience for us. First cruise and first family vacation just the three of us!

Disjenne I follow another thread that tracks people's experiences with booking either IGT, OGT or VGT and what they end up with... The general feeling seems to be staterooms are assigned about 14 days out and people are generally pleased with what they get! I'm just hoping we are high up cuz my youngest son and I both have a little motion sickness eek! Stocked up with Dramamine and Sea Bands... I'm thinking we will find out on Monday but I still check my reservation online constantly!

Vgt

We are also awaiting our vgt room assignment and are hoping for a deck up high due to slight motion sickness and me being pregnant I'm hoping it won't make the motion sickness worse, any one have any experience and know if there's any pregnant friendly motion sickness remedies

Surprise

Anyone ever surprise their kids with the trip? We haven't told our kids yet and were going to tell them know we were going to visit Grandma (we are before cruise). My plan is to just pull up at the port instead of going to the airport. Anyone have any creative ways to drop the surprise?
