We met Dave on one of the cruises. He and Steve talked about their jobs and Dave thought I was the one that gave the coffee he liked as an FE gift. It wasn't me and I wish it had been because that was great coffee!

I am trying to talk pahrumpgirl into joining us and while Carol is all for it Doug is wanting to hold out. I may need to turn the big gun, Steve, on him.

Yes, we did get the park passes. That is a ton of points! We don't have nearly that many. I don't think I could afford the yearly dues!

Jan, good to see you and Dave onboard. You couldn't talk our other Michigan friends into joining us?

Pam, it would be great to sail with you and Mike again and meet the family. Hope you decide to join us.

Looking forward to meeting everyone else.

Denise
Denise!! YAY, so glad to see someone that I know on here. We still have not booked this cruise, but I think this is the one that we will be doing. It will be great to see you and Steve again!

Hey Pam! We are so excited to be on this cruise. This is my third try to do the PC, something I have always wanted to do.

I am trying to talk Doug into going too. Carol, pahrumpgirl, is always ready but we now have to turn the heat up on Doug.

It is amazing that all categories are still available for this cruise. These usually sell out quickly. Could be the debarkation in Galveston but it is right up our ally as we are 3 hours away! Woohoo!

How far is Purvis?

Hey to Mike from the Ezells!

We are about 7 hours away....not to bad. We have always wanted to do the PC but have always had conflicts. I am determined to go this time! Hopefully you can talk Doug into going. It would be nice to see them again too!

Mike says Hello!!

We have been trying for a PC cruise for years as well but the timing has always been real bad for DD. She graduates this Spring so September was perfect for us to finally get aboard.

Hoping to get to LA a few days early for Disneyland and maybe stop in Holly Springs MS to visit family on way back to Minnesota. Could end up being a full 3 weeks for us.

I am hoping to get into LA a few days early also. The kids have not been to Disneyland, so this will be the perfect chance to visit! We are in south MS....a little ways from Holly Springs, but I know where it is

Do we have a facebook page set up for this group? Are any activities planned or in the works?

Welcome to all the new posters.

Our last cruise we had a private facebook page and a lot of activity on it, but we also had the thread since some people do not do facebook.

I wanted to know if anyone was up for an FE Exchange? I would volunteer to keep the list if we decide to go for it.

Another thing we did and it was seperate from the FE was a State Postcard/Recipe exchange. Most of the ones that did it were also in the FE, but there was some not in the exchange. We got postcards from our state and put recipes that were popular or significant to our state and it was a lot of fun also.

So let me be the first to say I am willing to be involved in both or whatever. Just chime in.

We are also planning on going to Disneyland a few days before the cruise. We have never been, but I want to go at least once to see the differences between DL and WDW.

We thought we would try to do a few days at DL as we have never been either. By then, Carsland should be more calm. I would love to ride the Matterhorn.

I am of two mindsets concerning the FE. I would probably join in if it isn't as large as when I went on the Inaugural of the Dream. There were over 100 staterooms participating and with me flying, that might not work out too well.

I'm in for the postcard and recipe. Sounds like fun! I can think of a Cajun dish or two!

I agree 100 staterooms is way too big, that should have been split.
We had gone into ours with the mindset that we would split around 40. We did wind up with a few latecomers after 40, but not everyone added them. It was up to the person whether they added the new people and it work out great.

We really loved the postcard exchange. It was a lot of fun and it was hard to limit my choices. I think I would up giving out three, but most did one some did more.

Our plan would be to have 2 days in LA to make sure we had plenty of time for Disneyland and California Adventure. It has been awhile since we have been and we don't want to miss the water/light/laser show. Since we are trying to get out before April 30 to see the exhibit at the Reagan Library we may even get there before the cruise.

DW would love to see the recipe postcards and want me to cook each one, from our end some of these Scandinavian dishes may not be that popular with the rest of the country. We are used to down home southern cooking being from Memphis and Holly Springs. It might be fun for you all to see what we do have which is unique up here.

FEs are not big with us, we always have to fly and a 14 day means DW bag is full going and fuller coming back. On our Mediterranean cruise in 2010 we limited the number of exchanges so everyone had room to pack, that too was a very large one, two groupings of 50 something each, then of course there are the crossovers you just can't miss because they are from your home state, college or previous cruises.

Steve had a class in Memphis a couple of years ago and I went along to sightsee. I had the best time visiting the Pink Palace, the zoo, and Graceland.
