Well, I'm sadly mistaken, Hubby told me that he got our cruise for this cruise (March 2nd) but between the time he told me about it and was talking with our travel agent about the type of rooms we wanted and what not, This cruise got sold out So It looks like I will be on the March 11th cruise instead I wish you all the best

Hi there from NB!

We've looked at a lot of excursions but have decided to do our own thing. We think we might get a taxi to Chankanaab National Park and then wander around downtown afterwards. The girls have a thing about buying sombreros!
There's a non-disney excursion called the Cozumel Amazing Race which looked lots of fun!

Last year our daughter was just 12 and she had a blast in the Edge! That was on the dream though.
What I would suggest is going to the open houses on the afternoon of embarkation, and see what your daughter thinks of both spaces.
Our daughter is really looking forward to the Edge again. Even though the space doesn't look as inspiring, there was a lot of fun activities. We've taken a look at the 'navigators' from a recent Wonder 5-night. http://www.disboards.com/showthread....ferrerid=77573 It's fun to see what's going on.

We're from the UK originally but w've been in NB for 10 years now. Lovely place to raise the family. Quiet though! Need to travel!
Glad to have you join us.
We've also been in NB for 6 years and this is our first family cruise. Do you have any suggestions for port adventures in Cozumel?

Hi.
I made a couple of suggestions above, but i've not been to Cozumel before, so i'm probably not the best one to ask! Are you wanting to do an excursion with Disney or go out on your own?
There's a few threads on the main board about cozumel excursions at the moment. A search might produce better info than I have

Where did you move from 6 years ago? Do you like it here? Pretty hard to enjoy it at the moment when it's -30'c!

for setting this up!

We're not going to participate this time. We organized it last year and it took up lots of time. The girls have asked if we can not do any FE's or meets this time. It's nice they want to spend more time with us!

Hope you all have fun with it!

There's a few ways you can do it. You can give one family gift per stateroom or individual gifts for all. You've got to make sure to have a fish extender outside your door so you can receive as well. Even a bag will do. You can deliver and day you choose! It's a lot of fun bc most of the time the kids will get something everyday!

It does sound like fun. How many families do we have so far?

Hi I just put my request in to join the Facebook group for the FEs. My DH and I will be on this cruise along with our sons who are 10 and 11. We haven't cruised on Disney in 5 years, so we're super excited.

Hi Everyone!
We've had school cancelled today with freezing rain, so we've had a planning day!
I thought i'd share this link to a scavenger hunt for the Wonder that I had filed away. I think a lot of you have younger children? But might be fun for older ones or for families to do together.
Be aware...the link has answers as well!
