Not sure where Lake Gaston is. We live about 2 hours from WS just south of Raleigh, in Apex. I like living here but I miss my pool in Florida...

I'm glad decorations will be up! I really want to see the overlay! I think there will be villains in the parks on the 13th so it may feel more like a party.

I hate to do this but we re going to have to pull out of the FE program, we work 7 days a week and just have no time to get organised. I know you will all have fun.
See you all on the cruise.

Hello fellow cruisers. I am trying to plan transportation for two from the airport to Paradise Pier then from hotel to the cruise ship terminal in San Pedro and again from cruise terminal in Galveston to Houston's hobby airport. What suggestions do any of you have? I am checking shuttles, would not mind sharing rides. Our flight from Texas is at 2:30. We are coming into LAX on the 12th at 11:40am. What does anyone think?

We are taking the Disney shuttle from John Wayne airport to the Grand Californian and decided to take the Disney bus from there to the port. DH just didn't want to worry with anything, so he said do that. Our kids are picking us up in Galveston and driving us home so we do not have to worry about that part.

We stayed there last yr but had the opportunity to move to GC for about $40 more a nite so we did it. Hoping to maybe meet up with some peeps while we're there.

Checking in for PC cruise. First day of the cruise is my birthday. First time Disney cruise for all of us! Go big or go home is my motto! It will be me, DH, dd - almost 11 and ds - almost 9. I am glad to see there will be some kids near their ages.

Welcome "Mom" This might be your first DCL but the real problem is that it is immediately addictive You can hardly wait for your next

Yes - Mom! And this is such a true statement!! In 2007 when my brother/sis-in-law asked us to join them on their first cruise we said NO! Imagine that! But we quickly changed on our minds. Since the Eastern cruise in 2007 we cruised in 2009 (Eastern), 2010 (Transatlantic), 2011 (Western) and 2012 (Hawaii). This will be our 6th cruise but our 3rd two week cruise (all on dcl). And it's just 4 adults who travel! Love the beauty of the ships and the level of service; it's great to see kids but nice that there are areas for adults only. Love the ports but love the sea days. (We didn't start all of this cruising until our kids were grown up...i can imagine how many cruises we would have under our belts if we started years ago! then again, there's only so much money to go around)
