I din't mind kids at all! I'm a pre-k teacher and gymnastics coach. I'll mention it to my husband. We can always split ways if you or we want to stay longer or leave earlier.

Talked to DW about getting off and wandering around Nassau. We didn't the last time, she thought it'd be a good idea, but wants to play it by ear.

We are coming in the day before the cruise and staying at VWL for the night, then taking the Disney bus over to the port. On the way back, we're staying 2 nights at SSR. No parks, but maybe a water park. Gotta hit downtown Disney for the kids.

Does anyone know where we can get a bottle of wine on property before we board? We're using ME to get to and from the airport and won't have the luxury of a car. I was going to buy a bottle and then put it in the luggage for the flight down, but DW is afraid it'll break and we'll have wine running loose in our baggage.....ok, it'll be my suitcase.

Thanks all. Not long now.

Got my room assignment today. Deck 2, 2014. I looked at the room reviews and it looks like an OK room. Can't complain - I've paid more for an inside room.

I believe the Trading Posts over at FW carry wine. It wont be an extensive selection but a couple bottles (as well as other alcohol). Really easy from VWL, just go down to the dock and hop the Contemporary / Fort Wilderness boat, walk over to the Trading Post (really close to the FW dock) and voila!


Update: As I typed this I called the magical and all powerful Disney operator and got transferred to the Settlement Trading Post. The gentleman said both trading posts carry about 8-10 different bottles from Merlot, Cabernet, etc.

We are also thinking about going to Queen's Staircase. We might be interested too. It would be DH, DW, & DS (age 10). We are doing some other stuff, but since we dont know what it is like on the way to the staircase, we would feel safer walking with others.

Sounds good to us! If I didn't say so earlier, welcome to the cruise and welcome the disboards!

Aqua Duck, food, Castaway Cay, room service wings, disney bars, cheese platter, trivia games maybe a bingo session, Midship detective agency, my girls dressing up more like princesses than pirates (they'll all have an eyepatch), shared verandah with my folks.

What are you least looking forward to about this cruise?
Coming home to possibly dead tomato plants and goldfish it was 84 two days ago now I see a ton of locusts everywhere. good time to get out of sin city

Now I'm REALLY getting excited. Saw today that we have a cabin assignment and I've been working on the gifts for the fish extenders. We're in cabin 10154. We're Rob (49 yrs old), Tracey (43 yrs old) and Megan (4 yrs old) and we're in the late seating for dinner.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and enjoying the trip!

We got our room assignment today. We got Deck 10, but it is at the largest part of the overhang from Cabanas. Hope this will be okay, but who can complain when it is on a Disney Cruise.

I can get my wife's coffee in less than 2 minutesShe will be happy about that.
