2nd fe group

If there is any late comers booking that want to join the FE, a second group was started I wanted to help since I know so many people enjoy being part of the FE. Here is the link for anyone that is new or books later. Not sure if they allow the second thread but I thought I would try it and see.

You're very welcome. I was in those same shoes last year. I unexpectedly booked my cruise 8/15/2012 and we sailed 9/9/2012. I had no idea at that time what an FE even was. I sailed last minute to enjoy a cruise with my niece. My brother was told at that time he had to relocate with his job to Vegas and he has been there ever since. Miss them. So that was one of my chances to spend with them. The FE group for the 9/9 cruise graciously accepted me and took 2 others about a week or two prior knowing not to expect gifts from all. Many in the group made extra gifts and was glad to have me share in the fun. I wanted to return the same favor with a little more pixie dust

We ended up with 2 suitcases full of gifts not to mention, 17 magnets total from our last trip! I couldn't believe the work & creativity of the gifts.
Can't wait!

Is anyone doing Palo on this trip? This would be my first DCL experience, and I want to try Palo but I'm thinking it might be too short of a trip.

I actually just asked my DH if he wanted to try remy or palo since we never have before. We have always done the 3 night cruises and naturally never wanted to miss one of the themed restaurants in rotation. Now we have a free night on the 4 day cruise. Hmmmmm

My DH and I were thinking of doing Palo for dinner on 9/4, which is also our anniversary. I've been thinking about it the past couple of days and the conclusion I have come to, for now, is it's our 1st DCL experience so I would rather not book anything and try out all the rotational dining options, also I figured we could spend that $40 elsewhere.

We're doing a brunch and dinner. I struggled with the decision to do the dinner since this would be my second time to miss enchanted garden now, but the chocolate souffle put me over the edge. Maybe afterwards we'll do a walk by enchanted garden just to take a look

I just booked this cruise last week and it's a surprise for my hubby for his 40th birthday (August 31st)!! I wanted to join the Facebook group but he is on my FB a lot and I don't want him finding out about this trip!! This will be our 3rd Disney cruise and our 1st without our girls (shhh--don't tell them either--lol)! We've cruised on the Fantasy twice and I've toured the Dream but this will be our first time cruising the Dream--sooo excited! We haven't taken a trip in a very LONG time without our girls! We're actually going to spend 2 nights before the cruise at the Contemporary and enjoy the parks. I booked the Keys of the Kingdom tour on 8/31 and a birthday dinner at Le Cellier for that evening!

How exciting. When and how are you going to inform him of the surprise?

I'm still trying to figure all of that out! I'm open for suggestions! He knows he's going somewhere and he knows the dates--but that is all. He travels a lot internationally for work so I had to be sure that he would be available to go and that he wouldn't plan a work trip during that time.
