*****DIS GROUP HAPPENINGS*****

If agreed upon by the majority,The DIS meet will be on deck 12 at a time to be determined closer to sailing (ending before the 4pm muster drill though) at the family wading pool, which overlooks the adult pool. There is a pic of the area here (it's the 2nd pic; the one after the AquaLab):

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...isney-fantasy/
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Non-DCL excursion on St.Maarten via Bernard's Tours - Maho Beach only
http://www.bernardstours.com/tours.html
Maho Beach Tour 11:00 am - 2:30 pm (This is when most of the larger planes arrive)
$25/per person (deposit $5/per person); children under age 3 are free
All tours depart from the Cruise Information Center Pickup at the cruise pier Drive through Simpson Bay marina Harold Jack Hill (View of Simpson Marina,Airport & Anguilla) Return to Philipsburg depends on tour departure time; all guests will be returned in time to meet their ship's sail time. Upon return to Philipsburg, transfer back to the ship will be provided free of charge, or you may choose to remain in Philipsburg to shop or sightsee at your own leisure. Walking back to the ship takes between 12 and 15 minutes, or a taxi may take you for approximately $3. * *NOTE: Itinerary subject to change. Weather and traffic on the island are constantly changing, and sometimes, this requires itinerary changes.
*PM Silverfox97 if interested
Note: We did the 'full' tour thru Bernard's Tours in June 2012 and were very pleased with them. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Review here: http://disneycruiselineblog.com/2013...in-st-maarten/
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Non-DCL excursion to Cinnamon Bay in St. John via Islander Taxi http://www.islandertaxiservice.com
*Islander Taxi will meet us at the Fantasy dock very first thing and will have a sign up with our names in it and will get us to the Red Hook Ferry dock. Then, transportation will be arranged there to take us and pick us up at Cinnamon Bay beach, and then back to the ferry dock, and then back to the ship with time to spare.
*Minimum of 10 guests (we have 7 so far)
*The cost for an adult is around $40 per person for both taxis and the ferry and about $10 cheaper for kids under 11.
*PM Silverfox97 if interested
Note: We used Islander Taxi in March 2013 for a tour on St Thomas. Alvin did a great job & I read on the DIS that he does the travel arrangements for St John as well. Our review can be found here: http://disneycruiselineblog.com/2013...rlotte-amalie/

Hi all

I'm ssanders79's DW. This will be our 11th DCL cruise (4th on the Fantasy). We'll be traveling with DD who will turn 7 just after the cruise on March 19th. I'll be celebrating my 35th bday on this cruise (and I'll be celebrating my 34th birthday on the Fantasy this March at Remy brunch!!!). We're back in our favorite stateroom, too!

Look forward to seeing everyone on board!

Found the meet thread. It was hard to find without a sticky.

I'm offically booked on this cruise for Spring Break 2014. Its possible I could change my mind between now and this time next year with the remainder of the balance is due but we are booked.

This will be cruise #4 on DCL for us. Cruise #3 is coming up same week same ship in 2013.

We switched to a 5D from a 4D to save a little money this time around thanks to the lovely price increases.

The girls will be 7 & 3 next year and we will celebrate their 8th and 4th birthday's onboard. Its hard to believe.

We are booked for this cruise, which will be our 3rd with DCL and 7th overall. We're doing a land-only vacation this year, so it feels great to have this cruise finally booked to look forward to!! My husband and I will be travelling with my DS (7 at the time of cruise) and DD (4 at the time of cruise). My parents have also booked.

Hey y'all! I thought I'd suggest info for a DIS Meet. I suggest deck 12 at the family wading pool area. It's worked very well on our past meets - the wading pool gives the kids something to do while the adults chat. It's a nice big area, too. It's also not very busy. There are bartenders roaming around if anyone is interested in any libations. There is a pic of the area here (it's the 2nd pic; the one after the AquaLab):

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...isney-fantasy/

I'll have ssanders79 put the info in the third post above. If everyone is in agreement about it, we can do it. It in no way is anything set in stone and should certainly be up for discussion as we get closer to the sail date.

Just one idea from one person - feel free to take to FB as well

OK, the group is set up for anyone.... seems that almost all of the groups wind up there as well.

Probably due to the push notifications.....
