Thanks so much - just making a little something that needs everyone's last name - nothing to big....

Thanks!
Usually if it is adjoining rooms with one family and their young kids, they share a FE.
Since the other room is her friend and child, they should have a FE of their own.

Does anyone know if there is anything within walking distance of the Cozumel port? We have a 3 year old and most of the excursions won't work for us. I don't really want to committ to an excursion...

There are all sorts of shops as you walk into the area and not too far from there a big grocery store. We went on an excursion last trip and plan the same one this time to take the kids (ours are adult). We did go to that grocery store before we went back to the ship for some liquid refreshment for my DH. That is all I remember off the top of my head.

Starbucks

There is a Starbucks with Wifi also. Just get a drink and get the code. We also visited that grocery store and plan to go there again. There is also a duty free liquor store right at the end of the dock. The shops are very colorful with lots of cheap t shirts. It should be fine for a 3 year old. Sherry

We have a three year old as well and are considering taking a taxi to Paradise Beach. It should be $12-15 each way for taxi. There is no entrance fee but they expect adults to order $10 pp in food or beverages. A wristband for the water activities (slide, iceburg, trampoline, etc.) is $12. Beach chairs are $2.

I haven't decided if we are doing this yet. I'm a little iffy about DS riding in a taxi without a carseat.

I love that Disney is in Galveston, since we are just a 4 hour drive away. I'm so excited about this trip!

I've never participated in a FE. I have only been on two cruises before (one DCL and one Carnival). CAn someone explain how it works.. I get the general idea, guests exchange gifts in the pockets of the extenders. But whee do you get a fish extender, what types of gifts do you put in, how did this come about? As you can tell, I'm a newbie... but I'm all about Disney and love DCL.
Our youngest son turns 13 a few days before we sail! We are bringing him, as well as our two grown kids (21 and 19), and my parents. I will have a birthday onboard and my parents will celebrate their 47th anniversary two days after!

I had looked at the original thread and noticed there was only one that looked like they might also go on this itenerary.

We have been on the Wonder twice and the Fantasy this last May. Loved both of them and we are looking forward to the Magic, especially since we don't have to fly to Florida to get to it!!!

Look forward to chatting.
We are first timers on Disney, but would love to participate in the FE exchange. This is our group:

Rooms 7063 & 7065 (we'll share an FE)

Gina-Mom
Barry-Dad
Hunter-son
Gentry-daughter
Tate-son

Room 7078 - They'll have their own FE.
Ann-grandma
Gene-grandpa

Looking forward to this!!

I'm thinking the same thing about paradise beach and have the exact same worries about the taxi ride.

Granddaughters

Our granddaughters are so excited about the cruise. We had dinner with the girls and they have so many questions. Can't wait for them to experience the Disney Magic! Wish it was sooner but have so much to do before then. Sherry

I think Disney Cruise Line does a character phone call for kids. If I remember correctly it should be a request on your online cruise planning. I think I will look it up for my granddaughters also. Sherry

Cruise check- in

I was just starting my cruise check in online and noticed that we will not have a cruise "formal" night. Did anyone else see that? I don't mind at all but was surprised to see it. Sherry
