Love, love LOVE the Roaming Mickey and the Pixar Pals graphics! I might be using the PP for my own magnet thanks for sharing.

She said since Disney was handling the flight arrangements they would make sure that we got to the next port.

After I hung I up stressed for a moment and decided that I was going to call to add a night, but then I decided to keep calm and go with it. I mean in the small chance something goes wrong, Disney will take care of it and we will have our own unique port adventures in Alaska till we catch up with the boat. Which would probably include something we would have paid for the chance to do.

Are you flying out of MCO? We will be flying out of TPA. My sister used to live up in Maitland, practically a neighbor. I love the Geek Series Trip Reports! Looking forward to meeting you onboard.

I'm glad you got some peace of mind. The advantage of booking through Disney is they will MAKE SURE you get there. It'll be a long day, but hey....nap on the plane, right?

Yep, we'll be flying out of MCO. We still haven't booked airfare yet BUT we're hoping if we wait another week the prices will fall a little bit more. That's what my dad insists anyway. Let's hope he's right! I think it's hilarious that your sister lived so close to us, Maitland is only about 5 minutes down the road from us! And you have an Izzi too

Our newbie cruiser friends are getting really excited, asking lots of questions about the Wonder and the itenerary...I was excited before, but talking with them is getting me even MORE excited. It's like reliving our first cruise.

Omg this is awesome., how did you make it into a shirt? Did you somehow flip the design and print onto an iron-on sheet?

I'm remedial.

Because I still have enough time, I went with a t-shirt company online to print my shirts. You could print it on t-shirt transfer sheets. If you use the one for "dark" fabrics, you don't have to reverse it, there will be a border of white when you iron it on.

The Roaming Mickey idea sounds awesome, count us in for that!

It's just me and DH and we are in room 7612

I am keen on the MUFE as well but can we be a TBC for now?

We would like to do it but we are flying in from the UK for two weeks in total so I am concerend about luggage space

If it's only a small group we would be up for it

I'll keep checking back to see when we are near to the closing deadline

Oh and the MUFE logo is wonderful

Not long now peeps
There's six staterooms signed up for MUFE so far. We'll have to wait and see what the count is. You are welcomed to jump in anytime before the deadline. Thanks!

I understand there's suppose to be one RM, but I don't see how anyone would know who's doing it if they're not on this board. There will be a list attached to it - thats what the "rules" tell me to do. Our group should have just one I think otherwise we'll be so busy doing it! hahahha

I will be traveling with family and I have two nieces - age 13 and 11 who would like to meet fellow teens/tweens via email. Is there a way to private message here? I haven't figured it out yet.

That does make sense...otherwise we will be spending all of our day signing and delivering RM's plus FE's......I think its just gonna be fun to roam the halls and look at all the doors.

We are doing the Palo brunch on the last sea day as well!
We're also on the 7:15am White Pass Train, but we are doing the Trail Camp on the way back down as we are going to be visiting the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver and we are trying not to double up with so many interesting things to choose from
We are going dog sledding on the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and I can't tell you how excited we are about that
And finally - an 11am PAT
My spreadsheet is nearly complete !!
I saw that many of you were on the early train in Skagway... what made you choose the 7:15 train vs the noon train? Is there a benefit one way over the other?

Also, what is PAT? Thanks.

I've only done one exchange, and it was really fun. Got lots and LOTS of custom-printed pens with our cruise info which I really liked. Some people made magnets, others left postcards with their address on it, others made mini scrapbooks with space left for writing and pictures. Oh, and candy galore. There was a pretty big variety. We also had abolut 40 cabins....so most people exchanged small things. I myself passed out pirate rubber duckies

In the end we had quite the haul! And this was BEFORE we had a child.

Personally we picked the 7:15 because we are early risers (the joy of having a three year old) and because we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time for naps and some casual town strolling later in the day without feeling rushed. We figured we'd be up anyway, and it will be light outside, so why not go ahead and take the early train. We're also on early dinner, so even though we're in port until 7ish we will really only have until about 5 for shopping and such.

So I'll be the one in the hat and gloves, with a travel mug of coffee in her hands!
