My 8 yo has already complained "why couldn't you have waited to just tell us the day we leave?"

I told her that if she keeps complaining that we'd go without her and tell her when we got back. That shut her up. For a while.

I made them both countdown calendars for their rooms so at least they can figure out their own 'how many sleeps?'

Oh, and Dh and our 12 yo went through every menu they could find yesterday, trying to decide what to eat. Talk about proactive!

Been looking at excursion. Think we are going to swim with the dolphins in Falmouth, and we definitely want to tour the ruins and the tequilla factory in Cozumel, having a little trouble deciding about Cayman excursion. Any suggestions. The one I was originally looking at toured the rum factory, but that option seems to have disappeared!

On another forum. someone posted pics of the tours you can book just at the port in Grand Cayman and one was the rum factory tour We were just going to wait till we got there until my dd found out about the turtle farm and swimming with the stingrays so now we're booking a non-DCL excursion for those

Greetings!! Please allow us to join the fun!!

We'd been trying to figure out how to work in a cruise from Galveston and we finally hunkered down and booked it - - - ON THE WONDER!!! Lol

We just went to Alaska on the 8/19-26 Wonder and had such a great trip!! Walked in the airport back in Dallas and it was 100 degrees at 10PM at night - really. I wanted immediately to go back to Alaska!!!

Anyway, we (DH, DD13 & moi) will be joining you on the Nov. 16th Galveston cruise!! It was tough to work in but being able to drive there and not having stay overs and such, we could not RESIST… We thought they'd stay at Galveston for years but now that they've announced none next year (except New Years) we decided we could not miss it!! Being huge DCL fans we did not want to miss a cruise from our home state!!!

So for the FE list

Room 7*** (waiting) - Bollengier Family
DH Gary - favorite characters Rafiki & Goofy
DW Linda - Favorite characters Jock (Scottie), Mickey & Snow White
DD13 Faith - Remy & Merriweather

This will be our 4th time doing FE's and we enjoy it very much!! <3

First time Disney Cruisers!

We are from the Salt Lake area and hubby and I decided this was a great time to do a surprise cruise...our girls are 8 and 6 and will have NO clue we're going till we get to the ship (fingers crossed). Hoping to read through the posts and get all the info on Disney cruises, this is our first one and I know they have so many special fun things to do...now I just need to do my homework! So glad I found this thread. :-)

fe group

Hello, my name is Andrea and we're hoping to book this cruise today or tomorrow and would really love to join an FE group. I know it's a little late, but would really love to join! We have an awesome FE gift to give I asked to "join" the FB page. Please let me know if there's a "late comer's" group that we can join. We are 3 total (Mom, Dad & our 5 year old daugher).

It's official!!

It's official! We just paid our cruise in full. We booked the VGT room so we still don't have a room assignment, but hopefully soon. We REALLY hope it's not too lat to join the FE group. We did it on our cruise last year and it was definitely one of the highlights of our cruise. My daughter looked forward to getting a little surprise.

Here's out info for the FE exchange
Tony (dad)
Andrea (mom)
Illeana (5yr old daughter) Favorite character: Mickey

Please let us know if we can join so I can get started on my gifts!!
