Is there any interest in doing a FE? Cause I know all of us would like to participate.
Wow, that sounds like a great group of people. We don't have any young kids in our group; although I did try to get my sister to bring her family but she didn't like the idea of the shorter cruise. I think a fish extender group sounds great and would love to be a part of one.

Welcome. Sounds like you have some great cruises booked. I was planning on doing another cruise in summer 2014 but I will have to figure out if I want to do a longer cruise or a land sea to WDW.

I wanted to update because my Mom will be cruising with us. So we have Me, DH, DD (16), and my DM who is retired.

Any suggestions on excursions that my Mom might enjoy. She is pretty active and has no physical limitations.

We can't book anything until Jan 27... we are traveling with a 2 yr old and a baby (will be almost 6 months) so I'm sure we won't do anything big when we dock in Cozumel. I'm still interested to see what is available.

DH and I were there via Carnival a few years ago and went ATVing through Mayan ruins. I had a LOT of fun! I'm not sure if your Mom would be interested in something like that though...

We are supposed to sail this one. I currently have a hold on the reservation and DH said he's formally booking today. This is very last minute for me (I don't do last minute) but my in-laws all of a sudden decided they wanted to try cruising. Our group would be Myself, DH, DS (3), DMIL, DFIL and possibly my DM (70).

yeah, my DH saw the ATV one and we were both like, well maybe not.

Mom, is supposed to be looking over the excursions and letting me know her top three. I will be good with whatever as this cruise is mostly about relaxing for me.

Yep!

Had our travel agent call DCL. Had to rebook into another room to grab the deal, but it was worth the savings.

First Cruise for us!

We are super excited! This is going to be our first cruise. We are a family of 4, DH, DS (6) & DS (1.5).
I've been reading a lot of blogs (yes, I'm a newbie and don't know what to expect).
Do you have any tips to share with me?! I can't wait for April!

Thanks

Thanks girl!
I'm extremely excited about this... Just read about the fish exchange. I was clueless.
Can you explain me what's what we need to take? Yes, the newbie talking :/
Price rate? Etc

Thanks for starting the FE list! I have participated in three of these and will be doing another in a week. I could do the google document if you wanted.

Also, we have three, 4 year olds

Woo Hoo!!! Good to see more people starting to show up on the board! WELCOME!!!!!

I would be interested in the FE too... I think it would be cool especially with the little ones that will be cruising!

This is our first Disney cruise as well, so whatever info you have to share on the FE would be extremely helpful. I'd been reading feverishly on what to expect during the cruise, but hadn't come across any real guidelines on how the FE works. Like, do we exchange room numbers ahead of time? At what point do you drop off gifts to participants? All I've seen are a bunch of pics of the super-cute extenders that people make/use.

Also, I didn't know until yesterday that there is a pirate night!! How awesome! I can't wait!

Yeah! I was planning on feverishly studying up on FE's this weeknd. I would love any and all help on this because I have never done one and only have a basic knowlege of how it works.

Oh and how funny! I was trying to give you another kid and take them all back a year in age.

So excited!

I just booked my cruise activities.

Day 2 - Palo at 6PM. I think this will be perfect for sunset.

Day 3 - We decided to book the Mayan Ruins & Beach Tour; I think my DH was a little disappointed that I said no to the ATV's but I just don't think it was the best for our group this time.

Day 4 - Palo Brunch at 10 AM.

I am planning on getting either a week long Rain Forest pass or most likely two of the couples passes on board depending on how interested the others are. Also, us girls may do manicures not sure and it won't bother me to much if it doesn't work out.

I want this to be leisurely so I am trying not to over plan. Pretty tough on my part.
