December 1, 2012 Magic Galveston

We just booked our first cruise for 12-1-12 on the Magic leaving from Galveston, Texas. I have looked but so far have not found any threads for this date. I would love to chat with some of my future shipmates.

We are really excited about going on our first cruise. I am hoping their will be some cruise veterans rhat will join this group. I think dd would love the fish extender exchange. I have always decorated our resort room window at wdw and now am switching gears to decorate the cabin door. I also just ordered mickey themed pirate ship iron on designs off ebay for pirates night--- need to still order pirate ear hats.

It has been a few days since I first posted and I am hoping still to find some other DIS'ers that will be on the cruise 12-1-12 leaving from Galveston. Dh, DD & I have been busy researching port adventures. I am obsessing about decorating our door.

I pre-ordered the new Passporters Cruise Guide today. It is suppose to be released next week. Dh and I have had alot of fun looking online and finding info about DCL to share with each other--- after 16 years of marriage a new conversation topic is always a good thing

12-1-12 Magic

Our family is also booked on this cruise. We have cruised many times before with several other cruiselines, however this is a first with Disney.

My husband and I have 2 young girls(4 and 1), and have not cruised since having them. So, we are looking forward to taking this trip together.
We are all very excited, however we still have a long wait ahead of us. Hopfully it will fly by soon.

We're also going and taking the boys for their first cruise! 4 and 2, plus us. Had booked it a while back and was wondering if any other DISers were going. Finally a thread!

Very excited!!,

This will be our 1st Disney Cruise as a family!!! (DH and I have cruise RC in the past, pre-kids). DH and I are trying to surprise our DD (7) and DS (4), but it's going to get harder and harder as we get closer!

Any and all tips are greatly appreciated!

Wow! Keeping it a secret has got to be tough. Our 4 year old already knows about it, but I don't think he knows exactly what it is or comprehends that it is a week long. I'm hoping he likes the kid area so we can have a little bit of a break for us, but if not, then I'm hoping the Navigator has some neat things to do on a daily basis.

As far as tips, there are a bunch of threads with all kinds of hints and tricks. We checked out some of the cruise books from the library and read the threads on our first cruise that we took. The only real hint we have for ourselves is to take it at the kids pace so they don't burn out and have major meltdowns from being too tired or over stimulated by stuff. I'm hoping we'll get to decide as a family things to do. We're going to try to schedule our youngest in the Flounder's Reef (2 yr old) so we can eat at Palo's one night.

Also not real sure we are going to be able to keep a 4 yr old up late for the Pirate night. The problem we face is do we try to keep both kids awake or split up and have one with the older at the pirate party and one watching the other sleep in the stateroom?

Either way, hope everyone enjoys the cruise!

Fish Extender Exchange??

Would anyone else like to participate in a Fish Extender Exchange? I would love to have one on our cruise. I've read so much about them, and they sound fun. I however, have no idea how to organize the exchange. Any ideas??
