Hello! We can officially join in now, too! We booked on opening day, but were still awaiting approval for the hubby's time off work (he's a teacher, so he requested 2 unpaid leave days in addition to the 3 personal days he gets). With the price difference between January and summer being SO extreme, we actually save money by doing it this way...We didn't want to jinx the approval with jumping in on the meet boards before we got the okay!

Anyway, it's me (Erin), DH, DD (11 for the cruise), and DS (8 for the cruise). Super excited! My parents are also joining us...adjoining rooms in the aft oversized verandah section of deck 9. Can't wait!!!

Who else is joining us?!?

Welcome RemoCat & Family!

The prices are great for this cruise!

We booked it as a surprise, we will not tell the daughter until we leave for port...which will be a big deal seeing that we live in California, it will be her first cruise where she gets to go to the "adult" areas.... well with our knowledge that is....

We're thinking about doing a WDW stay before hand. This will be our 6th cruise, so if anyone is new to DCL, we'ld be happy to provide any information we can.

If you or any other cruisers are interested, we would be happy join in / help organize "fish extenders".

Not sure if you or yours are into sparkling wines, but the Mrs. is one of the founding members of the Champagne Girls.,...which is a bunch of fun for the ladies. They have quite the time!

Hello again! Yes, the prices were so great, we are thankful we are able to go this time of year. This will be our third cruise with Disney (4th overall). We did the first cast-member preview sailing on the Dream almost 2 years ago (hubby's best friend is a cast-member, and he "must" go on all the previews for "work"...tough life, right? We had a blast on the preview (just hubs and I), and that's when we decided we must take our kids on one. Like you with your daughter, we completely surprised them last spring. Woke them up at 4:00 a.m. to board a plane for WDW (total surprise), then the next day we "changed hotel rooms" but first went on a ride to "see the space center". Screaming ensued when they saw the ship (Dream) and we told them we had one more surprise for them. SOOOO fun!!

This will be our first 7 day cruise, as the first (3, then 4 day) were much too short. We are definitely interested in joining a fish extender group, as we had a blast with that last cruise! It will be nice to have the kids help me plan for that this time, since I had to do it all the planning/crafting in secret last time (this one is not a surprise).

Hopefully we'll get some more folks to join us since we're on the meet link page now! Have a good weekend.

Forgot to mention...we'll come into town (WDW) the day before, and hubby is planning to run in the half-marathon the morning we leave, granted that they don't change the weekend. Anyone want to join him? I just play the role of cheerleader (this will be his third one there...his second is in just 4 weeks!). If not, I'm sure you can find him at the buffet as soon as we board!

Thinking about booking this cruise.

Hi all,
My dh & I were thinking about booking a holiday cruise for December 2013 or the new years cruise but the prices sky rocked since we look at them last week. We talked about it and decided to cruise after the new year and picked this one.
We have not booked it yet but are thinking about it.
It is me 27 (now) & my dh (also 27 now) We are doing a last adult cruise before we start a family. This would be my third cruise & dh's second.

Hello Everyone !

This is going to be our first Disney cruise but 12th cruise overall. I am so excited and can't wait to participate in the Fish Extender exchange. It's just going to be me and DH. We don't have kids, but love Disney and Universal Studios.

Regards, Brenda and Brian

Just off the Fantasy and while on we booked for this cruise.

This cruise is with the friends who sailed with us just now and my DW's brother plus his DW. It will be our 13th DCL cruise.

Looking forward to knowing more about you in the coming months.
