Kids Sail Free

Did anyone call Disney about their new "kids sail free" offer? We called our travel agent a couple days ago and got $1500 back! Amazing!! Worth a shot for anyone else sailing with kids~

Does anyone know if more spa appointments come available as it gets closer or after we board? I wasn't ready to book right at the 75 day mark, but now there is only 7am or 8pm openings for the services I want. Not a huge deal, but would be nice to get something booked now that I have it figured out better!!

One more thing...
I know there are other first timers here so have you heard that you can take on souvenirs to have signed by the characters? A lot of people take a pillowcase, picture mat or t-shirt and drop them off at guest services the first day and they are returned before the end of the cruise with character signatures all over it. Sounds amazing! I'm going to take 3 pillowcases (one for each kiddo) along with fabric markers. The kids will be thrilled to have this memory!!!
Also, for all of the "pro's" on here... please pass along any other ideas for us "newbies"!!
Thanks~
Jenn

I am not 100 percent sure but they may have a limit of two things per stateroom. I tried to take three things last time and was told I could only do two.

You can wait until you get onboard and check then too. They sometimes have cancelations and new openings. Also, sometimes there are onboard specials that may be cheaper if you book then.

Great info, thanks!! I think for the pillowcases I read that it can only be 1 item per person (or something like that) so hopefully since I have 3 kids they'll let me do 3. We'll see...
Good to know about the spa. I'll add it to my "things to take care of on the
1st day" list!

I, too, have heard you may get two items per cabin autographed. You can certainly try for three, but have a backup plan in case they limit you to two.

ideas please

About a week or so out from the cruise, I will start leaving little surprises in 'countdowwn buckets' that I made for my kids when we went to WDW last year. Last year, I would leave things like pop rocks (for Rockin' Roller Coaster) and gold mine gum ( for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad). I aslo left llittle Disney trinkets like stickers and $ store items. I need ideas as what to leave for the cruise. We've been on cruises before but not a Disney cruise. I know I can leave the normal sunscreen, sunglasses etc.. but wanted something a little more creative. Is there something they would use a the Pirate Party?? The sail away party?? My kids are 15 and 12 but they still like checking the buckets every morning and even if they don't, I'll still do it because I like to! They know I'm a little Disney crazy so they go along with it.

Door magnet, journal, bookmark, pirate eye patch, small bubbles (to blow during the send off), etc.

I'll send more ideas if/when they come to me!!

2nd FE Gift Group?

Howdy Ya'll! We signed up later than most. DH had to wait until end of 2012 to clear vacation request for 2013. UGH! Anyhow, I think I am more excited than my kids, who just turned 5 & 7! This will be my third cruise and everyone's first cruise and DC!

After reading on here, I know there were a few who got in late on the first batch of FE gifts and wanted to see if there was anything organized for a second set. Smaller groups can sometimes be more amazing, since, after all, it is smaller. Is anyone interested?

Also, since I pretty much isolated most of the firsts to sign up, I am pretty isolated in asking this now, so I may repost this but, anyone else from the Austin area?

We are so excited to meet everyone from Ontario to NM, but it is always neat meeting your neighbors, too!

Meetups planned?

Also, I wanted to find out if anyone was interested in meeting up somewhere, maybe for coffee or somewhere else? Also, anyone on here planning on wearing a lime green ribbon or name badge? I noticed someone from one of the other threads was kind enough to post blank name badges.

Sorry if I am an overzealous newbie- I am just too excited to think about anything else between now and then!!!

I'm new to the whole DISboards and FE thing myself and kinda figured there'd be a meetup of some sort near the beginning of the cruise. You know, so we could put faces with names for the FE exchange. So, I too would like to know if something like this is planned.
