I haven't cruised with an infant, however my DS has about the same sleep schedule you just mentioned. He is usually in bed by 8pm on school/week nights and the weekend, maybe 9pm. The reason being - he wakes up at 6am every day! We are flying in two days before the cruise to Vancouver to adjust to the time different from the East Coast so hopefully this helps. We know we won't sleep 100% like we do at home, but we try not to overdo it. We are doing a lot more excursions on this cruise so I expect we will all crash at night!

Hi Heather, Can you message me your room number for the Roaming Mickey. Thanks!

We have two staterooms and 7 people cruising. I understand if it is too late, but at any rate we would love to meet up with some of you on the cruise. I won't post our info until I know if we can join (or not).

Thanks!

Elisabeth
You are welcomed to join the MUFE! I have decided to split the group as it has gotten quite large. Please message me your info as soon as possible! Thank you and look forward to meeting you and your gang!

I have a dd who is 11 and she would email with your daughter. Put some random posts out so that you get your count to 10 so you can message me for the email or check out the FB page with the spreadsheet.

Our Izzy went on her first cruise at 9 months old and she did great. It was just a mini 4-day to Nassau and CC. She adjusted just fine, but it was a harder adjustment for us....we were used to cruising kid-free and without a schedule to keep! She adapted nicely, but the thing we didn't anticipate was the napping. And the bedtime. Meaning someone had to be with her in the cabin, and only one of us got to go out to evening movies and so on.

When last we were in Alaska she was almost 2, and she napped in the stroller on our excursions which was great! She actually did well with the time change, better than any of the adults! She's a pretty go-with-the-flow kid and a great traveller which helps. Not that there weren't a few meltdowns.....but I wouldn't worry too much.

Hope that helps!

As for gifts, I suggested one family gift representing where you're from and one individual gift. As we are splitting the group, any additional gifts are optional. You are also welcomed to do the whole group if you so choose. Have fun with it!

Y'all can stop stressing now, we just booked our plane tickets to Vancouver!

Funny story....we were going to book on Sunday but due to several strange happenings were not able to actually sit down together and book until this evening. The price had gone up over the weekend to $750 and saying "only 3 more left at this price" which was totally bumming me out. And today when we logged on, they were down to $650! No restrictions! For the same exact flights!
We got all 5 tickets and saved $500. I'm thrilled.

And now everyone can relax, because WE WILL GET THERE. lol

T-shirts

Hi Everyone!

Getting excited! I am trying to figure out the graphic website, but I am a dork. I see that some of you had t-shirts made and I would love to do that and possibly print some magnets for our doors. Could someone walk me through how to do this? Or how to find the images to use? How to use them? Completely hopeless, I know.

Thanks!

Elisabeth

On facebook, seach Graphics for All Lovers of Disney, you have to ask to join and they will accept you (closed group). Then you can request designs that are already made and have them personalized or you can request a new graphic. But you should be specific so re-designing is not necessary and all they ask is you say Please and Thank You!

There are also many designers here on disboards. Seach DISigners and you'll be amazed at what pops up!

Have fun!!

See - this is what I don't get. I'm in CA and a heck of a lot closer and it would cost me that much or more to fly to Vancouver in June. As soon as the calendars opened up for booking flights I started watching it. The flights started at $500 a person round trip. But this is part of why we are driving. I can't see spending $2000 or more on flights. But this way I also get to see my family in Washington, so it's OK for us in the end.
