We have more info over on FB. We are going to keep the FE small since this is a lot of us first Disney cruise. I put a link over there but will paste here too. Just click on the blue "Disney" and there is a post on FE! If you have any questions just ask away and someone will answer.

Welcome, hope you do book!

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!!!
Oh I really hope you can join us. I'm sailing with my DD10.

Thanks, guys! I spoke with DH earlier and he said, "We just need to book it. If we don't we'll talk ourselves out of it!" He's so right. :P

Thanks for the link, Anamanxs! I'm waffling on FE...it sounds like a lot of fun but I'm not sure that I'll have time to get much together between now and then. I'll think about it for a few more days.

I've been reading waaaaay too much about cruises and Disney this evening. It's way past my bedtime!

I'm excited for you! We are all going to have a great time!

My friends have diagnosed me with OCDD... Obsessive Compulsive Disney Disorder...

I think it is contagious! Just spend most of the evening working on our Disney World schedule. All I have so far Is the times of the parades and opening and closing times of the parks and our character breakfast.

That's about all I include... Parades and reservations. We just grab the park guide when we get there and add any must sees as we go. I find that although planning ahead of time is a must, if you get too detailed it can stress you out. That being said... A very detailed schedule would be better than none at all, lol.

Is the FE list still open? We just booked our May 2nd cruise and I'd love to be a part of it. It's one of our favorite parts of Disney cruises!

Welcome to the group! Yes it is still open and we would love to have you join us. A lot of us are first timers to Disney but we are really excited about the FE. If you FB we have a page over there too. You do not have to FB to be included. Who are you cruising with?

My name is Janet and I'm traveling with my DD, Johannah, and she is 10.

Yay! I am actually an experienced Disney cruiser (and travel agent), so let me know if I can help in any way! I do FB. Just let me know the name of the page.

I am cruising with my husband, kids and mom. We have two staterooms. I am Christine and I'm traveling with Bil (DH), Miranda (DD 18), Emily (DD 14), Nikolas (DS 10) and Mary (mom).

Even though I've been on a bunch of Disney cruises, this is the first one for my mom and kids. They are so excited!

Welcome Aboard, We so have room in the FE. Here a link, we are Disney Dreaming, May 2, 2013.

http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/269359996520135/

It is by invite so hop over and I will approve. You actually close to me, I am in Roanoke. I have cruised many times also but this is my first Disney. So, I welcome any advice; I have tried to add a few links, if know of other please feel free to add. I will be traveling with my daughter, her husband and children. My SIL actually has an art show in Richmond next weekend.

Search for Disney Dreamin', May 2, 2013 and you should find it. We are a closed group so just ask to join. I'm so excited!

Just requested to join! I have several blog posts with advice about cruising in general and cruising with Disney. I will post them here and on the FB page. I'm happy to help in any way I can!

I saw that you are in Roanoke. Not too terribly far!

This is my first Disney Cruise but a friend of mine was on one and did the FE and it was so cool!

ETA:
My dd is 12, my ds is 10 and my ds is 3 (not potty trained at all so I am REALLY hoping that changes in 2 months lol)
