Hi Everyone.

My husband and I just booked the 5/2/13 Cruise today. We are super excited. We have a DD -10. We haven't told her yet but I imagine there will be lots of happy screams and dancing when we do!

WELCOME aboard, I think Janet's daughter is 10 also. We also have a facebook page if you are interested. Have you cruised before? Have you cruised Disney before?

Thank you. This is our very 1st cruise ever. We have wanted to do this for years and the opportunity presented itself in bright neon. We usually go to Disney World once a year. So this year we are doing the world for a few days and then heading off to the cruise. We set up the character call for my daughter tomorrow. I'll post later for her reaction to the news that we are really doing this....

I'm going to the world after the cruise. I wish I would have booked before

10 year anniversary cruise

Hello all! After much debate on how to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we decided to book the 5/2 sailing and take our kiddos with us. This will be our third Disney cruise. We did the Magic in December 2010, the Fantasy last month, and now we're doing the Dream. We also have a January 2014 Fantasy sailing booked.

Our actual anniversary is 5/3, so we're doing all sorts of fun things that day. Going to the Graycliff Hotel to taste some rum and learn how to roll our own cigars. Then upon return we're going to take the kids to dinner, drop them at the nursery and do adult dinner at Remy, finishing up just in time for the deck party to see the fireworks. yo-ho!

It'll be me (Lauren), DH (Brian), Mallory (DD-3) and Emerson (DD-1). We are staying on deck 5 in 5650 - we wanted to be close to all the kid stuff because we plan to have our kids there often. This is the same deck we'll be on in January when we do our annual trip with friends except we'll be on the Fantasy again.

Don't think we'll do the FE this time (we did one with 28 cabins in January!) because I don't have the bandwidth to get something cool together. Last time we brought anti-bordem kits for the kids (for the trip home) and some Cincinnati stuff for the adults (Cincinnati chili packets, air head candy which is made here, and a Bengals trading card).

Also, I highly recommend you bring a couple photo mats for the characters to sign. That way you can frame a picture of your kiddos with them and have the signatures around it. Just bring the mat - not the entire frame. We are giong to do a princess one this time. We've done pillow cases before too.

I'm bummed this ship does not have the Bippidy Boppidy Boutique. Mallory LOVED it and it will be hard to explain to her that there is not one on this otherwise identical ship.

It looks like all the kids in the group are either ~2, 3, 5, or 10. I think there are going to be a lot of friends made!

Happy to say that my family will be joining you guys. Myself, DW, DS (10 ), DS ( 8 ), and DD (6 but turning 7 the day we sail away). This will be the 4th Disney Cruise for DW and I and the 3rd for the kids. We were originally just going to spend the week at WDW but recently decided to change it up and add a cruise. We are doing the 7-night Western in December as well. Kids are obviously super excited.

Next stop is the Facebook page, lol.

Welcome, this will be our first cruise with our 3 year old. Did your daughter spend much time in the nursery before?

None of our children ever went in the nursery, however they have all loved the club/lab. DD gave us a hard time about it on her first cruise but she adapted quickly. The boys could have stayed there all day and night, lol.

Hi! We are 95% sure we'll be on this boat! We just haven't booked yet because my husband is out of town and we want to pick out the details together. But I'm researching everything now. This is our first pleasure cruise (he was in the Navy for 8 years, but that doesn't count, and I've never been "to sea"). This cruise is a combination 5-year wedding anniversary trip (married 3/18/08 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica) and a celebration of surviving 2012, which was the longest and most stressful year of our lives! Whew!

We'll be cruising with our 3-year-old daughter (she turns 4 on 8/20) but will be leaving our then-8-month-old son at home with Grandma & Papa. I am not looking forward to leaving him for 4 days, but I really didn't want to deal with bottles and diapers on a ship.

I'm quite sure what FE is all about yet, but it sounds like something we might be interested in. Is there a general information thread about it, or does each group set their own standards?

We'll be driving to Pt. Canaveral from our home in Savannah, GA.

I'm so excited!!! Can't wait to book!!!
