Hello, all! Well, I had a little outpatient surgery yesterday, so now I'm pent up and figured it was a good time to get caught up on all things Disney! I guess it's too early to start the buzz on packing essentials and excursion wish-lists, isn't it? So here's a question for you all... With all the buzz in the air about what people are hoping to see different after dry dock, anything in particular that you hope stays just as it is??? I for one LOVE the double staircase in the atrium, and would be sad to see that go. I also really love the pool in the adult area, that dunk dank on the Fantasy really didn't do it for me. Any other favorites???

Hey, thanks! I was gonna wait until a little later to start working on colors and converting it to a graphic, but I start school again on Monday (weirdest timing, I know) so maybe I better get a move on lest the time slip away!

The online costume shops that I have ordered stuff from in the past are now sending year round e-mail flyers. My first thought was "What am I going to be this time on the Magic?"

There were some great costumes last year. The two roman gladiators made an impact.

May or may not be cruising solo, so I need to have options.

I am flirting with the idea of a villain this time around! We opted out last year, we just ran out of time before sailing! Plus we'd already put out a hefty chunk of change for both our pirate gear and my Jessica Rabbit formal wear. Now that we already have some of the cruising essentials we can re-use, I think we'll have some fun with Halloween costumes!!

Is this something DCL always does, is it a Halloween thing, or a Dis thing?

Bonnie- on the Oct 20th sailing on the Fantasy last year, we had sponsored events. A costume contest and some other things hosted by the cruise staff. Someone else may be able to give you a better account, since Von and I didn't participate, but once we get closer to our sail date, DCL will send out info on which cruises are celebrating the holiday and how!

If I can recall correctly there are Halloween festivities (adult costume contests, trick or treating for the kiddos, "themed" desserts and menu options) across all of the DCL ships for at least the last two weeks of October. As Eva said, DCL didn't announce anything officially until much closer to sail date, but it is something to be expected; much akin to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. (Except the party is free on DCL, no added costs!!)

Most folks in our group (I would say 29 out of 31) dressed up in some fashion on the Fantasy last year. One of us even got chosen to compete in "funniest costume". The contest was held in the atrium around 10:45pm. As we had second dining, we wore our costumes to dinner and had a hoot.

A fair number of folks wore their costumes to the nightclub afterward. (I changed into an alternate costume--as I love to over pack.)


On an unrelated note, my bf agreed to sailing with us over the weekend. He is a first time cruiser and I am so excited to show him the beauty of DCL. He isn't the biggest of Disney fans, but enjoys it enough. Now I have to go back and rethink my cabin choice and whatnot. Would you want a sideways 11B for your first cruise?

Ok....here it goes!!!

We are currently booked in the Oct 12th Western on the Fantasy........BUT........

Tonight, moved a dummy booking to this cruise (plus the 2-night cruise to nowhere)!!!!!

We've got about 6 months to decide which ones to keep.....

Its myself, DH (ssanders79) & DD who will be 6 1/2 at the time of sailing. We have been on 7 DCL cruises & will be on our 8th cruise in March (38 days!!! - it will be our 3rd trip on the Fantasy). We have been on two double dips (one each on the Wonder & Magic). Scott (DH) is about desperate to get on this cruise post-dry dock!!!

The only reservation I have is DD missing 5 days of school (instead of just 4 on the Fantasy), and the double drive to Miami from Tampa. We are booked & I have a feeling that this will be the cruise we keep!!!

Just wanted to pop over and say hi!!!
