I can not wait for this vacation! I had a crappy day at work. And to top it off my crappy work day, my coworker/friend is back from her honeymoon, which one would think is a great thing but said friend is a workout freak who had me in great shape before she got to busy with her wedding for the last 6 months. Well she is now has the free time again and her workout kicked my butt and made me sick. I had forgotten how someone so tiny could be so evil! I felt like I was on the biggest loser....

Oh happy note, DH bought our disneyland tickets today!

I haven't started packing up the house, I haven't started packing for the cruise. I don't have time to shop or fuss about what we'll be wearing on the cruise. All I can commit to is that we will be wearing clothes! Need-less-to-say, it will be a busy few months for our family.
I'm with you. My husband took a new job, around 150 miles away, so he stays there during the week & comes home on weekends. I'm anxiously awaiting a call from our realtor because she told me earlier that an offer was coming in tonight. Hopefully we will be moving the week after the cruise. I haven't even started packing for the cruise, or the house other than de-cluttering in order to put it on the market.

We are so looking forward to the relaxation!!!!!

I've added a few more photos to the Roll Call and some more stateroom numbers.

And about being shy...I'm not and I enjoy meeting new people. So if you see Susan and me around please do stop us and chat.

Folks that have linked their dining reservations up in the Early Seating, there are two adult tables and two adults w/kids tables that I know of with 28 DISers total. Question to those that are in this group...Do you have a dining rotation preference, i.e., there are 3 possibilities. Personally, I like Triton's and Animator's Palette better than Parrot Cay so I'd take 1 but it's not a strong preference.

1. TAPTAPTAPTAPTA - (Triton's & Animator's Palette 5 times, Parrot Cay 4 times)
2. APTAPTAPTAPTAP - (Parrot Cay & Animator's Palette 5 times, Triton's 4 times)
3. PTAPTAPTAPTAPT - (Triton's & Parrot Cay 5 times, Animator's Palette 4 times)
John (DH Decked Out) and I are with you in the dining group and we also would prefer option 1 since we love Triton's. But I will be happy with any rotation.

I am not shy and will come up and introduce myself to anyone I see wearing a Disboard nametag. I will also wave or shout from across the room. So be prepared!

Can someone clue me in on the cost of using the internet onboard to check emails as well as using a cell phone if we can't conduct our busines via email? I'm totally clueless.
I had very good luck with doing business via email on a previous cruise. Each morning I signed on and downloaded all emails then signed off. Took a minute or two. Then I could compose replies offline leisurely. Then another signon to send. Repeat the process in the afternoon. I think the total charge was about $22 for the 11 day cruise, and I was able to reply to all emails in a timely fashion. I suppose it wouldn't be as economical if you have to access webpages and spend time navigating around the web, though.

Speaking of name tags, I've been creating the layouts and getting the sizing right and playing with colors. I'm a Donald fan so I did him but printing out the others too with the white backgrounds it seems to me that we need one with more color to show up on that white background. Susan and I thought the lights one showed up the best. Opinions on whether the red text or green text looks better? Made real first name bigger and bold, and DIS name smaller, non-bold and italic. Thought about using Disney font but it's not as legible as some others like Tahoma.

Which ever dining rotation the group picks is fine with us too. I get confused just thinking about all the different options.

Jeff,

I really like the fonts. Good job. I know it's time consuming going thru them and finding the one that works best.

Personally I like the simpler lines because it's easier for me to read but you and Susan are looking at them first hand and can tell what looks best.

I say you do what you think works best. I appreciate you taking the time to do them. I'll be ecstatic over which ever one you chose.

I like the red better but they both look festive. Nice job, Jeff!

Thanks Linda, I really need a mentor. Aleve helps some. I've thinking about going to the Chiropractor, just waiting to see what the regular DR says tomorrow.

Just curious if those rotations came from Disney. I've read several of trip reports from the Hawaiian cruise and the rotations don't seem to follow the normal ones from the seven night.

SOCABABY posted this on her Hawaiian trip report "I have requested PTTAPTA for my past 2 cruises prior to this one so I think that is why I got the rotation I got...PTTAPTAPTAPTAAP. It's so weird seeing all those letters on your KTTW card.

Hopefully someone who has sailed on a longer cruise can confirm

Name tags look great - either color looks good (although green is my favorite color). Thanks again for taking on this project - it is very much appreciated.

Restaurants

My favorite restaurant on the Magic was Lumineres. Is it the type food as Tritons? We ate lunch there everyday. Most of the time we ate breakfast there after working out. I would vote for more days there. Although I will be happy with anything. Thanks. Sherry

Oh , I love the name tags. Thanks again.
