Well, often they are, but sometimes not small enough, lol. And, if you wind up with 100 people on the FE list and even a quarter of them give something the size of oh- say a computer mouse or larger, it adds up. I preach small, flat and light weight but someonee with a creative idea doesen't wnt to hear it.

We are booked! This is our first Disney cruise and a bit of a “test” trip for our youngest. Before the little one came along dh, ds, and I did two other cruises, one Western Caribbean on RCCL, and one Hawaiian islands on NCL.

We chose this itinerary as it has very little travel for us since we live on Vancouver Island which is a two hour ferry ride to Vancouver. Travelling in two adjoining rooms will be my dh, ds (18), ds’s friend (18), dd (4), and I. Hopefully there will be enough activities and things to do for the 18 year olds, I’m confident my soon to be four year old will be over the moon with all there is to do for her. Anyone ever taken 18 year olds on a Disney Cruise? How did it go and did they find other older teens to hang out with?

We are looking into going to the zoo in San Francisco, it doesn’t seem to be a popular choice but we do not have a zoo here so it will be thrilling for us. What is everyone else doing on our stop?

I look forward to hearing from others and want to know all the tips and tricks of the Wonder.

Hi Trish, Welcome aboard!

At 18, they can attend the night clubs, fitness center, spa and adult shows and hang at the adult pool, but they can't drink. The cruise staff usually has a college mingle, and a singles table at lunch pretty much every sea day. Never traveled with teenagers myself, so I don't know if they meet other teens or not

Hi Shelby, your blog looks very interesting I'll have a peek when I have some time. I am very jealous with all the time you get to spend in Disneyland, what a fun Mom you must be.

Oh, thank you! The blog is on hiatus right now, but there's tons of past entries. We just adopted our DD at the end of November, so life has been a whirlwind since then.

Glad to hear there will be other kids in the 5-and-under crowd. DS is totally excited about the Oceaneer Club. We did this same repositioning cruise 2 years ago but DS was only 2 so he had to hang out in Flounder's. Which he loved! But he's really looking forward to the different activities available. Plus he's a HUGE Jake and the Neverland Pirates fan, so he can't wait for pirate night. I'm so excited, I know this is going to be a great cruise!

Sadly I have to post that we will not be cruising with you. I have to have back surgery in the next month or two and I have to put cruise plans on hold until next year. We were also booked on the PC cruise.

Hope you all have a great time!!!

Jan

Our DS is 4 too. We took a Disney cruise when he was 2 and too young for Oceaneer Club, so we're excited for him to join the activities! Our DD will be 2, so will stick with us, but DS is very excited!
