Journals

So since they were mentioned again, I will let you all know that for the teen girls in the FE group, they will be getting books from us. Not Disney specific, but anyone that didn't get one of Emily's, know that your cabin may still be getting something.

Well I might as well fess up as well, this is me! I have a hearing problem, actually its an auditory processing problem (hence the not speaking till I was 5) and I do a lot of lip reading and filling in the blanks and when that fails, I just smile and nod . It gets bad in loud environments. The more I drink, the poorer my lip reading gets and that makes for the unusual conversations. My friends like to have fun with this! And when my family doesn't want me to know something they just turn their head or cover their mouths, so mean!

Great minds think alike, didn't mean me to step on your FE toes!

Count me into the smile and nod group sometimes... I had a bad patch where I suffered from labyrinthitis and ear infections and it affected my hearing. So if I smile and nod and whatever it is affected my hearing just ask again!

Sometimes my smiling and nodding might be more related to how much I've had to drink.

Seriously, I can't wait for the next 28 days to zoom by!

CARRIED OVER FROM PT.1

A fabulous website has been set up for our cruise by Jeff Spencer. Please visit it at http://12-09-12-ebpccruisers.weebly.com/




DVCinderella has kindly volunteered to keep a roll call up to date as well as a list of special events being planned and who is planning them! Please see page 6, post #77 for the roll call and page 6, post #79 for all the special events being planned for this fantastic cruise!

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _________________________

A FACEBOOK group has been started for this WONDERful cruise! If you'd like to join, here's the link!

Fish Extender Exchange

dthogue is organizing the FE Exchange for those who are interested, let the planning can begin!

If you are interested, please PM dthogue the following information - she will follow up with an PM and an email.

Dis Name
Names of the adults
Names and ages of the children
Cabin Number
email address

Cutoff - the last date to register will be October 9th - 2 months before sailing.

At that point, a decision will be made if we will spilt into groups smaller groups. If a spilt is made you will be asked if you want to gift to everyone (be on both lists) or if you want to be on only one list. Unless we get a extraordinary amount of participants, the list will be divided in half, based strictly on numbers.

Gifts - you decide how you want to gift - one per cabin, one per person, adult gifts, kids gift etc.

Delivery - each cabin will be assigned either week one or week two to deliver their gifts. This will only be a GUIDELINE, not set in stone - if for some reason your week doesn't work, you are free to deliver whenever you want - it is just a way to avoid having the gifts all delivered the same week.

Any questions or comments, PM dthogue!


__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______________________________________________

"NOT a special event, but if anyone would like, I will undertake to arrange for the private shuttle from Port to Fort Lauderdale on the 23rd. Please pm your flight time and number of people (including ages of kids) to me with SHUTTLE in the subject line."

Thank you.
Linda (LindaBabe)

If there isn't a conversation about working out or dieting, I am lost for words. When it comes to going to a club and loud noise, I can not hear worth a dam, so I just smile and nod yes, hoping I am not committing to anything.

This sounds like me too - my family tells me I need to be more social. This will be our 7th Disney cruise and I always say I'm going to the DIS meet on the first day and never do. On our last Magic cruise, we went to the Promenade lounge and watched from afar - I didn't have the nerve to walk over and join in

Wow, can't believe we are already on page 2 of the 2nd thread! I am recovering from having five 14 year old boys spend the night for a b-day party. Man, to be young again...staying up late to me is about 10:00pm...not 2 or 3 in the morning! I am just so glad the kids don't have school tomorrow so we can all sleep in (hopefully).

My goal this week is to have the rest of the kid FE gifts done. I have 11 more to do, so I am pretty confident I can get it done. Just have to hit Michael's up one more time for some more paint. We will be heading down to my parents house on Friday after school for the Thanksgiving week, so won't get anything done next week. Not looking forward to the drive home the Sunday after Thanksgiving...we will be leaving very early in the morning to hopefully avoid some traffic. It can be a nightmare going from Palm Springs to the Bay area!

Hope you all enjoy your day off (those that get one!) DH has to work, so I know not everyone gets to enjoy it!

Bump (from Part 1). Trying to pack too. Does anyone know? Also, I finally bought a gown this weekend for formal night. Don't know what to wear for semi-formal night though...

'Borrowed' from Turkey day on the Wonder Thread...

Okay, so I borrowed this quote from the aforementioned thread. I remember LindaBabe wrote the terminal is a pretty miserable place at the Port of LA, maybe this could liven it up a bit?


"Cruise Terminal Prior to Boarding: Meet by the largest TV display where Disney movies/shows are playing. It's obvious...once you're through security, just go straight ahead past the restrooms towards the far wall and look on your right. There's plenty of seating, and TV for the kids while we wait for kids registration to open, Mickey's arrival for photos, and boarding to begin. I'll post a DIS sign as well to help you find us. You'd be surprised...it's actually pretty easy to figure out who's in our group jsut from what you learn online. We are usually very early arrivers at the terminal so just look for us. I'll be looking chilled, but anxious to board, while my twin DDs will be running around to meet all their new friends and get the social activities going. This (and the onboard meet) is a great opportunity for the kids to premeet some friends and get over their shyness before hitting the Stack/Edge/Lab/Club/etc. Disney to my knowlege has never really enforced arrival times at the LA/San Pedro terminal, so I wouldn't stress over showing up early."

FE Progress

Weeee I just finished making my 80th FE gift for the kids and had to share my excitement with someone. Everyone in my family thinks I'm nuts working on so many crafts for people I've never met. I can be shy to meet new people but I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

Since you're coordinating the FE this cruise you should be there to get any last minute cabin number changes.
