I saw on DIS but then looked at Tripadvisor and Googled it. It sounds really good but I haven't been there yet. I emailed Steve (the owner) though and he responded within 30 min. Starting off well for me. I hope it's as good as people have posted

If you can change it that's great.

No Documents for us yet.
All done for you, it may not show just yet though as I will do another big update over the next few day so will upload the new version otherwise I feel I may be uploading all weekend with all the changes / adding on. (hope that makes sense).

FE - LIST CLOSING MON 12th

HI all

last chance to join the FE group if you would like to. The list will close on Monday so everyone has plenty of time to get there gifts sorted before the crusie. I will continue to try to update the list over the weekend but I have friends here at the moment and then am travelling to my parents tomorrow so I will update my list but may not upload the changed list until sunday / monday.

If you have asked to be added I will send you a reply to say which group I have added you but it may not show on the copy until monday (hope that makes sense) otherwise I feel my weekend will be spent continually uploading new copies the list on fb and here.

If you dont hear from me please send me another message just to remind me gently.

Thank all

Zoe

And I always enjoy kids that I don't have to take care of
This is my advice too - go at their pace. Especially with sleep. We're sleep worshipers in our family. Life is so much better when our son has slept! Sometimes that means we miss fireworks or a show - oh well.

We are also giving this a try. Emailed Steve awhile ago and reserved an umbrella and we are really excited about a beach day. This is our only non-Disney excursion. DH was scare we would miss the ship if we did non-Disney excursions since this is his first cruise but I talked him into this one

We're doing a manatee interaction in Cozumel booked away from the cruise line. Got a great price & its prepaid. Love it.

What did you think of the Xrails to Jade Caverns. DH and DD are going on that.

Oh man! I don't want to put y'all off from it! Overall we are glad we did it so no regrets in the end. The first half up to the cenote then the swim in the cenote was awesome. Loved it. After the cenote swim...well...it could've been over then and it would've been great. After the cenote the trail got seriously rough. Buggies were bustin' left & right, I had to pee sooooo bad, and there's no restrooms until the end. I was in such pain. I ended up wandering into the bush a bit for a squat. First time sober. Not fun. I'm glad I did it and loved about half of it. That's the part I choose to look back on with a smile now. I will recommend wearing clothing you are okay with throwing away. That's not regular mud or even clay. Its like this silt that doesn't simply rinse off. You have to work to get it off. And I think it multiplies by itself. We literally handed our clothing out of the bathroom and put it all straight into a garbage bag. You can "rent" crocs shoes there. Sounds gross but if I had it to do again that's what I'd do. Also, if you want to do anything after before returning to the ship bring a complete change of clothes. You'll be glad you did.

zippyzoe, i've really been on a roll with all the FE stuff, so i've decided we can handle both lists. Could you please add us to group B as well!? That will be lots of cabins & lots of people, (especially since i did individual gifts, rather than cabin gifts), but lots of fun!! (It's a good thing we're driving!! ) Also, could you please update this info on both lists... Matt favorite character - Pirates. Noah favorite - Little Green Alien (Toy Story). Raya favorite - Rapunzel. Thanks so much!! Kyle!

Red face First Disney Cruise

Hello everyone. Can you believe it?? I've been a member of DVC since 1999 and this is our first cruise. We are super excited. I am hoping I can still get on the FE list. Can anyone help me with this?

Just Booked this Cruise!

I can't believe it--we just decided to book this cruise--first time cruiser. Will be my husband and myself (he is not really a Disney fan but knows how much I am so agreed to go!)

Trying to learn as much as I can and am enjoying this thread. I too would like to be part of the FE group if possible. Please tell me how to sign up.
