Wish we could do a few days before cruise but just can't be away for that length of time. We did go out DL in May for a few days before the D23 exhibit at the Regan Library closed.

Cabin Assignment...not yet!

I keep checking to see if DCL has assigned our gty veranda cabin, but no movement there as of yet. Not that is will matter if it's later rather than sooner, just anxiously awaiting. Anyone out there checking on a daily basis for cabin assignment as well?

The FE list I have has 25 cabins and 8 girls and 7 boys and 1 dog. Does anyone know if that has changed? I need to go ahead and order my FEs and I want to make sure I have enough of everything.

If you're talking about your wife boarding the ship and you and your daughter coming later, I believe your entire party has to be together during check in. At least, I know it's that way in Port Canaveral.

As long as you kept the link I sent you for the file it is current. I think ( and this is totally from memory since I am not at home ) it is 26 cabins 1 dog and around 17 kids.

If you did not keep the link let me know. Since it is a google doc anytime I update it the link will show the latest entries.

Everyone remember our deadline for joining the FE is fast approaching and as these have stated they need to get everything in order so of you want to join please let me know.

I have the link, but I am showing 25 cabins and 15 kids and 1 dog. The last person on the list I have is Sinado4. Does that sound right? When is the cut-off? I may be able to wait until after the cut off date to order my stuff online.

Thanks for organizing!

OK, We did loose a cabin not too long ago and that is the number I was remembering. It is 25 cabins, 15 kids and 1 dog.

On the roll call I have the following listed:

Fish Extender Exchange Deadline to join August 1, 2013

Postcard/Recipe Exchange Postcard from your city, state or country with your favorite recipe (or a recipe significant to your area) Deadline to join August 14, 2013
Post on the board or PM twokats to join in the fun.

Since both of these have August deadlines, I thought I would show them both. With the FE being Aug 1 that gives everyone 6 weeks to get organized, I thought 1 month for the recipe would be adequate.

I will try to make any changes known on the board s that you can look at the link if we have any additions between now and the end of the month!!!

It is 54 days until we leave for CA. My DD is super excited!

I am so glad you are joining us! Sorry I am late with the welcome.

I would love to see how you do it if you would not mind sending it to me by pm. I like to be organized, but I seem to be better at WDW than I am on the cruises!!! Go figure.



OK, I didn't think I had gone crazy. There was an addition that I had on my notes, but not on the list, but that has now been fixed.

There are 26 cabins and 17 kids, 1 dog



I think I have the roll call updated and as I stated before, it also gives all our other info and dates.

Who else is excited?????

I was worried about that given we have traveled out of Port Canaveral so many times but remembered in Barcelona some of the parties showed up at different times. I had contacted DCL when we were offered the studio tour and told "Guests do not have to check-in together", they offered to forward the reply in writing. DW has it and will offer it if she has trouble boarding.

Taxi from Avis to LA Port

Is anyone else renting a car from AVIS on the LA side? I'm thinking that might be another taxi share situation if anyone wants to join us - have the driver drop off family and luggage at the pier and then meet at AVIS. Let me know if you are - we did the early boarding time!
