Completely agree. We were talking about that this morning. After all the rain and cold that we have had here in SE Texas, this weather is a nice change and hoping it continues.

72 degrees

What a beautiful day here in Houston. I just saw in my car that it is a whopping 72 degrees. Here's hoping we have that on Febr 1. We might actually be able to swim on sail away day. I did notice on our last cruise they kept the pools at around 88 degrees but it was the brisk wind getting out of the pool that got me chilled. Sherry

Last Minute Fish Extender?

Hello! We are looking forward to our first Disney cruise. We are bringing our 5 year old twin boys- who don't even know we are going yet (going to make it a last minute surprise!) Our baby girls is going to be staying behind with her grandparents.

Since this is our first Disney Cruise, I wasn't aware of the fish extender program until I just started looking at these boards. It sounds like something my boys would really enjoy. I know the group on this board is closed. Does anyone know of any other boards, or another way, we can join in on a fish extender group?

Thanks!

Thanks so much, Sherry! We are the Holmes':

Any other takers?

I have a couple of questions for you veterans out there.

Parking-- where's the best place? And are there coupons online for some?

Cozumel-- My husband and I have been there several times on cruises but this was all before kiddos when we usually spent time at the beach and Carlos n Charlies . What is the best thing to do there with two five year olds in tow? I'm thinking the ocean is going to be too chilly this time of year??

TIA!!!

The way it works this is THE board. The only way to have a group is if any of the members have some extra from theirs to include you. Skayrobe has already noted she can add you. I think my two rooms can add you since I am still in the middle of things (I know I have to kick it up a notch or two and get finished!!!). I will add another note at the bottom of the FE list for y'all and that will at last give you a small taste of it and hopefully you will enjoy and have more cruises and chances to get into the fun. I warn you that most cruises have their FE deadline a month before sailing as we did.

If any others can add this group post and I will keep up with it.

TXmomoftwinsplus1, I need your family information (names, ages of kids and stateroom #).
Any other questions, please ask away.

You answered as I was writing. I will get with you in the next day or so and give you some additional information.

I was told by another member of our group that Lighthouse Parking was good. I looked at their website and the pics are good and all spaces are covered parking. I have a reservation with them for our time period.

The day before the last night of the cruise they will leave envelopes in your room that gives the amount for each cm in question. You can let it be charged to your room or I think you can go to the service desk and take care of it, especially if you want to add extra, or you can put extra cash in the envelope also. Then you take the dining staff envelopes with you to your last dinner and give it to them at that time and I leave my room host on my bed when I go to dinner and that way he gets it when he does my room that night. That is my experience, anyway.

We have a reservation with EZ cruise parking. There is a discount when you use coupon code: Disney. It was $36 for the 4 days.
