September 12, 2015 - Fantasy eastern cruise

Haven't seen a meet thread for this cruise yet, so thought I would start one. Just booked this today and am so excited! Going over DD 3rd bday and DH bday week. And we got a great cabin choice.. Yay!

Anyone else joining? This cruise seems to have some good sales so far for 2 days in...

I'm in, Cap'n!!!

I'm going on a girls-onl trip with two work friends; one has never cruised, and the other has cruised before but never on Disney. If she sees Captain Jack Sparrow, you'll hear her....wherever you are. Trust me

We're in a cat. 8C on deck seven. And you?....

We should get on the cruise meets list... I can take care of that.

Well...sigh...I think my message went through. I'll keep an eye out for us on the cruise meets list.

Lets pace ourselves and wait to start a Facebook group until we have at least a few dozen people, okay? LOL

Great! thank you!! I honestly started the thread, but I am not a good leader for these things so thanks again!
I know, we are a little early as we only have 16+ months (haha)... but I am sure more will come out of the wood works soon

I am in a cat 5E, deck 7 in the back of the ship. It is our first balcony room ever on any cruise, and we got the back so we can't wait. We got a balcony so we can go out there if DD needs to nap or go to bed earlier. Who knows what she will be like or her routine in 16 months! And... if my DD sees Pluto or Mickey or any character really (which I know she will) you will hear her... lol. We just came home from WDW last week and she screamed and ran to Pluto, Mickey, Belle and Sofia!

That's actually a really great place to be (we are aft also). Straight up the aft elevators to Cabanas, or down to the kids' clubs on 5 and adults' clubs on 4.

All the cool people are on 7 aft!

And you will love having a verandah, especially with a little one. My group chose not to, to save money, and frankly the only time I used it on our last cruise was when my husband wanted me to join him. I'd much rather be up on deck!

Oh! And the closest laundry room is just up the stairs and around the corner on deck 8, by room 8148. That's probably important information for the parents of a toddler.

BTW, I'm Linda. My Dis name is MickeyEarrings because I'm never without Mickey Mouse earrings in my earlobes

Hi there. I just booked this cruise and wanted to join the meet up group as soon as possible. This is my second disney cruise and I joined a meet up group for the last one but only a week out so didn't get a chance to do all the fun things. Not making any mistakes this time lol. September 12th is my birthday and I will be 30! So I wanted to do this for me and my 2 boys who will be 6 and 5 when we go. They loved the cruise last time so I'm super excited to go again with them a little older this time. We are in a concierge room 12010. I look forward to getting to know everyone and see you all on board.

Hi Linda, I am Amy

yes, thank you for the washing machine, I might be there a time or 2, LOL. We are planning to do WDW first too, so lots of clothes/days to go. We did the same last year and had to do laundry at least once. I am hoping for potty trained by this cruise, but that may mean more washing due to potential accidents... I want her to go to the kids clubs if possible though, and maybe the pool if she is good with the potty by then. We are going to start this summer/fall with the training so she has a year.

I saw a cabin open the other day on deck 9, above where we are now. I almost grabbed it, then said I better think on it first. I am not sure I want to move. We were on Deck 6 last time and it was a good location (cat 8D). I would think 7 would be nice too, kinda in the middle up/down. Maybe if a deck 8 opens I will debate on moving up, but not sure. Don't want to be too close to Cabanas

We were very happy on deck 7 last November: it's a short trip down the stairs to the main dining rooms, and when going up to 11 for Cabanas or the pool, I never had to wait for an elevator.

Now, when going up to deck 13 to sunbathe, this was my strategy: walk up two flights of stairs to deck 9. Walk forward to midship elevator lobby and walk up two more flights to deck 11. Then walk forward on the pool deck to take the stairs up to 13. That way, I could get some excercise, free up an elevator for someone else, and not fall over in the process! LOL

Ah, club level....so jealous! Maybe someday! I volunteer in companion animal rescue and now look at everything in terms of "how many dogs could I feed with that money?" - so I'm pretty sure ill never see the inside of the club lounge. LOL

Way to get in on the group early this time!! You made it in on page one!!!

And we're in...

After much discussion with DH we ended up with this cruise (his 4th DC, my 5th - going for the Gold!)
This will be our first time on the Fantasy after our honeymoon cruise on the Magic and two west coast cruises on the Wonder.

Cptnkirky, I think we're your neighbors - we're in cabin 7194. Are you in 7192 or 7690?

And I know it's waaaaaay early, but put us down for an FE when somebody starts one up!

Only 470 days till our cruise!!!

Fantasy Stateroom reviews

Oh, and if anyone is looking to change rooms (or just book one), this

http://www.wdwinfo.com/disney-cruise...om-reports.cfm

is a great reference. It's reviews of almost all the cabins on the ship.

We went through it extensively before booking.

Also, this -

http://cruiseadvice.org/CruiseShips/...disney+fantasy

is good for just general floor information.
