This is our second DCL cruise, with our first being on the Dream this past Spring Break, which was also over Easter. They also have church services in the theater.
Welcome aboard! Tammi, DS 14 Nick & DD 12 Alyssa! They will be joining my DS 14 Cameron in the Edge!

Thanks for the added church service info! Good to know!

Tell you what DBP. If no one steps forward to volunteer for FE, I'll do it, but I've never organized one before and would much rather let an experienced person do it instead. If I can find some time, I'll research the boards for the recommended procedure. If we get no volunteers by the new year, I'll get something up and running.

I have been reading up on fish extenders to learn about them. I know there can't be a firm answer but about how many people end up doing this? I am trying to figure out how much to budget for it etc...although I have found some fun ideas and we have lots of time!!! I won't volunteer to organize anything because I still don't know what I am doing! LOL

I'm waiting on a Dreams Unlimited quote for this cruise, we did the Western in Sept and are dying to get back for another cruise!

Saving hard, our airfares jack the price right up but our cruise was amazing and DH is only wanting to cruise Disney now, they set the bar pretty high the first time around

I'm already changing the date.

Have fun! I'll be cruising later

Smile Our First Disney Cruise!

Hey everyone! I have not booked yet...kinda nervous cause I have to wait until the end of this month to do it.... I've heard of so many people booking soooo early and I'd hate to not be able to go.

My Daughter will be turning 21 on April 21st! My dream has always been to be in Epcot for her 21st but as it falls in the Easter week that year, I'd be crazy to do that...lol So we will try the new experience of a cruise. Although i am terrified of the ocean, so I'm not sure how I will handle this.

I'm so excited. It will be myself (Denise), my DD Katie, my DS, Andrew (12), and one or two of my DD's best friends. I'll check back after I've booked so that we can be added to the roster. I would love to meet up with everyone. As I already know that my DS will be out and about at the kids clubs and my DD will have her friends, I may be the odd girl out...lol

I was planning on using Small World Travel to book the trip as the offer on board credits. Any suggestions/opinions on this?

Welcome to the Dis Boards and your cruise meet thread!
No worries...we booked fist day but I've looked a couple times, still plenty of availability and prices do not seem to have gone up at all yet.

Well only you can answer that, but my DW had similar concerns her first time and she was totally fine, loved it actually!

I think many parents would love to have that kind of freedom on one of these cruises, so I suspect you'll have blast

We use Dreams Unlimited and have had no complaints whatsoever. I imagine the agent you mentioned would provide essentially the same service, similar if not exactly the same OBC. Just remember if you use a TA, you have to go thru them for all changes, and some people really don't like that, if you're the type who likes to micromanage and have total control of things.

Anyhow, if you keep checking back here from time to time you'll see things start to organize themselves somewhat. You can subscribe to this thread to make it easier to find by opening thread tools pull-down window and selecting 'subscribe to this thread'. You find it by going to quick links pull-down window. Looking forward to meeting you in a mere 16 months!

Hello everyone we just booked today.

This will be our 3rd Disney cruise we were on the Dream August 2011 and the Fantasy last April. We have talked some good friends into joining us so there will be 9 of us. Me (Sheila), Nancy (my mom), my DS Zakari (12) and DS Camdyn (9). Our Friend Barry, Sue, Marilyn , Barry III (14) and Chloe (13).

We have done the Fish Extender on our other two cruises and it was great I will be more than happy to help whoever is running it or answer any question anyone has.

On our last cruise we created a Facebook page and meet a lot of people prior to the cruise, it was a lot of fun and have made some great friend that we all still see.

Sheila

We just got off the Magic yesterday and booked this cruise while onboard.
It will be our 2nd on the Fantasy and our 6th cruise on DCL total.
The Wonder in 2009 and 2010/2011 (NYE cruise), Fantasy in 2012, Magic (just got off in Galveston yesterday) and Wonder (in Sept, PC Repo from LA - Galveston) 2013.

We are me, Kathy, and DH, Lee, and our two adult children DD, Kati, and DS, Clay.

We will be celebrating my DH's birthday and retirement (he will turn in his paperwork right after we return) plus it is early retirement and he is so ready.

I have a FE organizer background and could do this one if no one else wants to. I did the Wonder cruise in '10 and the Magic we just got off of and I am also doing the one on the Wonder in September. As I said if no one else wants to I can work it in.

I am looking forward to talking to everyone and meeting you in 2014!!!

We're coming, too!

Denise (me), Chuck (DH), Madison (DD12) and Willow (DD9). This will be our 3rd Disney Cruise. We've done a 3 day and a 4 day- really looking forward to a longer cruise! We have never done an FE before but would love to this time.

Thank you very much for the welcome, and I will gladly do the FE organization.

I just got off the Magic this week and even before I left I had so many ideas for gifts to put in my stash, plus I got a lot of new ideas from what I received. I absolutely love this part of the planning!
