I've only been on one other cruise with kids, when my son was three. I think the best thing to do is get them signed up at the kids club first thing on the ship. They have such a great time there, and make friends fast. We'll have to get our princesses together! My kids are just so excited about vacation, we even made a paper-chain countdown! Of course, I think mom and dad are just as excited (mom might be the most excited). 23 days!!!!

Does anyone know how the cabanas work? Fr example if we shared one with another family & we paid our 1/2 to them, then how would the individual charges work in the cabana?

For example any lunch or drink charges, extra water sports, etc. would each charge them to the kttw card or go on cabana charge?

Thanks all
Ellen

Hello! I am late to this party! Booked VGT about 2 weeks ago for myself and DS16 and DS11. We are anxiously awaiting our stateroom assignment and seriously cannot wait to sail. Kids have never cruised and its been about 18 years for me! So fun reading all these tips, I actually feel like I will be well prepared!

hi kristin - that is so cool, what part of NH? we're in Atkinson. Are you staying at wdw before the cruise? we booked this in conjunction with the school vacation here. Did you rent a cabana? This is our very 1st cruise, but we go to wdw abt 3-4 times a year, we have annual passes.

Hello all. We might book this cruise last minute pending the outcome of my mom's bone marrow biopsy. Would y'all accept a late FE entry of two adults? I will know on Tuesday. Thanks!!

Ellen we are in Pelham! My 11 yr old was psyched to hear there is a kid his age and from NH too. So funny. We did not rent a cabana, already spending too much money on an Atlantis day trip! I have family in Orlando so we will spend some time with them on both ends of the cruise, maybe hitting one of the parks on Thursday.

We will try to meet as well but being new to the ship hopefully I will not get lost! I do have a few questions. Is everyone allowed to board the ship starting at 11 am? <- I think I read yes somewhere in all of my research. And if, for some reason, our stateroom changes once we arrive on the ship *upgrade* how do we let everyone know? Lastly, because this is our first cruise I hope you all enjoy our FE gifts! I feel so lost on how and what to do! Lol!
