Hi all. We've cruised a bunch before but I always forget about the "Meets" boards. This was a somewhat last minute cruise for us as we only decided to do this about two weeks ago and confirmed last Monday. It will be me, my husband, our 15 year old son, son that is turning 10 in two weeks, and our 5.5 year old daughter.

This will be our second time on the Dream; the last time was over MLK weekend in 2011. Those of you in the Atlanta area weekend will remember that as the week of our big ice storm. What a super fun week that was for us--home for 4 days and then off for our fun adventure on a new ship. It took us a long time to get out of Atlanta due to the icy roads, but otherwise it was an easy trip and we had a fantastic time on the Dream.

We've never done a 4 night before, and although it's not my first choice, I'm looking forward to getting away. We have friends that live in Nassau, so we will see them for a bit on our Nassau Day, and we always love spending the whole day on CC. My younger son and I will run the 5k and then we will all ride bikes around the island, eat good bbq, and relax in the sand and water.

I'm getting so excited, and am very ready for vacation. We will be driving down to Orlando Saturday morning, spending the afternoon/evening at the Magic Kingdom, staying at the Grand Floridian, and driving over to the port around 10.

Need to get busy!

Hello all! We just got back from a week of state basketball tournaments. Our niece plays for our school team and this was our first trip to the tournaments. We got first! So exciting! Anyway, just realizing that our cruise is only a month away. Need to get busy on our gifts. Can't wait to meet you all!

Just curious...does any of the experienced cruisers have an idea the dimensions of the phones on board? I saw a pic of someone's creation for a bag that they did to carry the onboard phones in w/a clear see through vnyl panel in front. The carry bag had a clip on it to attach to belt loop or backpack. I would like to sew a set for hubby and g/d.
We are doing early dinning. I thought of booking Palo. Not sure hubby would appreciate it. He is a pretty basic food person. I would LOVE to experience Palo. I researched it and thought how wonderful it would be. Hmmmm....
We have the dolphin excursion booked so far.
Hoping our snow is finally winding down. Long winter here. Wisconsin is notorious for having blasts in April. Sick of shoveling, I tell ya!

if you are referring to the room wave phones they are about the size
of a typical cordless phone do NOT lose one they charge you
$250.00 we rarely take them out of the room. we sail alone
most of the time completed 42 Disney cruises so far

Introducing myself and the family:
Felicia (me) and Derek
Brendon (6yrs)
Dean (2years)
Stateroom 8616
we are newbie cruisers

Donna and Ted (my parents)
Stateroom 8618
very experienced cruisers but first time Disney cruisers

Thus far, we have an Atlantis Aquaventure excursion planned and not much else besides some babysitting for the little guy. We are eating during the early time slot.

Looking forward to a fun adventure in just over a month

Don & Gail...WOW!!! You should be the "unoffical" tour guides/ambassadors for the ship. That's a lot of cruising!
