All my ADR's are booked!!! So now I can stop waking up at 3 am every morning!!! :-) we got everything we wanted: sci fi, le cellier, Kona cafe, be our guest, boma, and Jiko. All with plenty of time for us to see the nighttime entertainment.

Has anyone looked into the chocolate factory tour in cozumel? We are thinking of doing it, looks like it gets great reviews on trip advisor, and we wanted to just be low key that day anyway. Looks like kids need to be 6 in order to go on the tour.

Just bought some packing cubes, can't wait to try em out on my upcoming trips.

Exciting!

I'm doing only DCL excursions. Is that a DCL one?

Then on Tuesday drive to Springfield, pick up a different vehicle, then drive down near St Louis to meet my new regional folk and head out to my new territory. It will be such a change for this city girl going from a smallish urban territory to a huge rural route! AND I haven't found a place to live!!!

I don't even know whether my closest airport will be Indianapolis or St Louis yet, so I don't have my tickets for January. Midway is always cheaper, I will miss Midway.

Just wanted to comment on the port/ship time thing. Last Feb out of Miami on the Wonder they did not change ship time to reflect local time and they told us over and over not to change our watches and not to ask locals the time. But this is not always the case and I think the longer cruises may change especially since the ship will be in the Central time zone for more than a day or so.

No clue about shore excursions for us. Will probably decide just before online checking opens for me. Hopefully I will be getting settled someplace by then.

Enjoy today everybody!

Karyn
How's the move going?

Oh ok. I will check.
I have a small kid and don't want to chance getting stranded with him in a foreign country.

We are only doing one day at Magic Kingdom before the cruise. Got an ADR at The Crystal Palace. Wanted Be Our Guest but we are a party of 8 so that might not happen! Then we have one day at Downtown Disney. Would like to eat at Wolfgang Puck's cuz my kids LOVE sushi but no ADRs available for that either. Might just try a walk up for that one.
Then we are off to Ron Jon's for a couple nights. We'll do the Space Centre while there. Then off to the cruise.

This is our second Western Carribean cruise so we've been to Cozumel and Grand Cayman before. Last time we did the Butterfly/Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman and the Dolphin Encounter at Cozumel.
Looking at doing a Jeep Excursion this time, either at Cozumel or Costa Maya. Then not sure about the other ones. Last time we were at Grand Cayman, they had a Pirate Ship excursion. Unfortunately it's not offered this time. It's offered privately but the times don't work for when we are there.

166 days until we leave!

I'm thinking about seeing the space center when we go back Dec 2014. My son will be a little older and hopefully interested. I've always wanted to go!

Is the FB group very active? I don't ever get any notifications from it.

We have Deluxe DL passes and are probably upgrading to premieres when we are in WDW 12/28-1/4!!!

Welcome Homeboycartel!

We are from Norcal...we have premium passes, but will not be getting premiers, I crunched the numbers and for us it would not be worth it :-)

We are also on Deck 8!

If you are interested: we have a facebook group! I believe the link is on the first page of the thread

we have a fish extender group started on there...I am also attaching the info in my next post.

Fish Extender

So far here is who is signed up for the fish extender, it is currently a document on Facebook...if anyone would like to be added, please either join the facebook group, or post the information here for me to add the facebook list. All information will be finalized and posted both on facebook and the dis so everyone can participate!

Please post the information below in the following format (once we are closer to the cruise, I will input the information into an excel file as the final copy for everyone to use while onboard). Please edit/make changes to anything you think of!

This will be a general FE, please no homemade food items. After the final sheet is complete a final excel sheet will be sent out and distribution will be up to everyone on when they want to hand out their gifts. (Please add any other rules that you think of). I will make a last call on the disboard as well as on the facebook page for all final changes/sign ups prior to creating the final copy.
