tinsklite--it sounds like you've got 3 wonderful kids! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone on the cruise!

Speaking of the cruise....
we have an early port arrival time (10:30-11 I believe or whatever the earliest one is), but we'll be taking DCL transportation from the Poly so I think we'll actually get there around 12ish. I think the DCL transportation picks up resorts around 11ish, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

What are everyone's plans for pre/post cruise? I can't remember if we've already discussed it or not! Sorry if we have and I'm just being forgetful.

After the cruise we're heading to POR and WDW for 2 days, then we're heading to the Caribbean on the Fantasy.

Well prior to the cruise the family are getting together with the rest of my clan to celebrate a cousin's wedding. The wedding will bring over 100+ members of family from around the globe. (my dad was from a family of 12 kids). And since my wife has never been to Florida we'll just do a cruise. Next time time and finances willing we'll do WDW.

Tinks-thanks for sharing about your kids. They sound great. My oldest who is 21, but not cruising with us because she has finals that week danced for years and we went to many competitions.

We have a 1130-1200 PO time, and since we live about 2 hours away we will be driving up that morning, Mickey will be calling to talk to Olivia who has no idea we are going on a Disney cruise.

tinsklite - Awesome kids!!!! Looking forward to see them bouncing around the ship! I couldn't do the Aqua ride on the Fantasy's but kinda of regret it so I am going to try to work myself up for it this time .....

In past we have always stayed at Port Orleans but this time it is more of an adventure. We are hauling our trailer down to Fort Wilderness Disney Campground for a few days before and a few days after. Husband just officially retired end of March and we are heading out of here first week of April and making our way down slowly, visiting his sister in SC and scooting over to AL. Our Daughter is arriving a few days before the Cruise when she finishes her Uni exams. We plan to play in Disney for a day or 2 then we are off to the ship!!!!

Oh and so looking forward to going, Husband is out plowing snow now. We got dumped on this weekend, big time, probably a good 2 ft of the stuff and high winds. Hes making sure we have access to the trailer just in case!!

Haven't signed up for FE yet just want to confirm Daughter will help with deliveries......

Pirate Night?

Anyone dressing up for pirate night? Both of my kids have costumes, but I'm still on the fence about whether me and hubby will join in.

We will be dressing up! Our son (who will be turning 4 right before the cruise) LOVES Jake & the Neverland Pirates, so I am going to make him a Jake costume. I am thinking about making hubby and myself costumes of the other pirates maybe, but whatever I decide we will be dressed up to some extent

We aren't doing anything special before or after. We are driving down the day before (from Atl area) & driving back right after. We picked a port arrival time of 1-1:30 - wanted to make sure MIL had plenty of time in the morning, LOL

We're getting in around 9am the day before. We are going to stay at poly and do magic kingdom. After the cruise we are stay at POR and staying for 2 days before catching the Fantasy.

We will sort of dress up for pirate night.

We get in the day before around 9:30am. We're staying at the Poly that night and spending the day at MK. After the cruise we're heading to POR for two days then heading out on the Fantasy the 4th.

We normally dress up for pirate night but this time we're going easy on the dress up and just wearing pirate tshirts and bandanas.

My wife and I will be on the cruise. Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary with out KIDS!!!!

This is our second cruise and very much looking forward to it. Especially since we are to have a second snow storm in as many weeks here in Michigan. I'm ready for some hot weather along with some sun, sand, and surf.

Welcome to the cruise!

We live in Alaska and haven't gotten as much snow as usual, so please feel free to send some our way!

We just got hit with another 6" blanket of the white stuff yesterday. Shut down tons of schools in the lower half of the state. Looks like we're due to get some more today.

I'd be very happy to send it all up to you as a pre cruise gift!!
