Hi!! We did the stingray excursion in Grand Cayman 3 yrs ago. It is the coolest thing ever!! My 5 yr old daughter loved it, my 4 yr old son did not. I think we're gonna swim with the dolphins in MX this tine

Hi!

Sorry I have been MIA for a little bit lol life gets the best of you sometimes. Me and my husband are both 28, DD Ryleigh is 8 (9 on cruise) and DS Cohen is 1 (2 on cruise). My mom will also be with us and is in her 60's. This will be my hubby and son's first cruise, my second but first Disney cruise, and my DD and mom's second disney cruise. I am so excited that there is interest in doing the FE!!! YAY! and thank you Maggemommy aka Mikka for volunteering to head it up! I love the idea to meet up the first day/night. I think maybe 2 weeks before so we have time to collect enough stuff. OH and we are from Texas also! lol

Hi Ryleigh'smom! Glad you were able to come back to all this excitement over the cruise!

From what I've been reading, I think we need at least a month for the FE's. I guess it would depend on how many of us end up being interested, but I'm not that organized. My last 2 weeks will likely be spent making sure I have all the right stuff for my 3 grandkids!

This is my first time for the FE so it's all new to me!

So glad to see others getting ready for the sail...75 days! Just booked the nursery and excursions for the whole family. Will be the first time sailing for myself, husband, 6 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old. My in-laws will be joining us as well.

We've booked the beach excursions, since our options are limited with having a 2 year old.

We'll also are gluten free, so I am excited to read other posts about how well they are able to cater to our dietary restrictions

We're in the process of booking ours too. Trying to decide whether we want to do the swim with the dolphins in GC or MX..we've been to Cayman before and did the stingray encounter - it was way cool!! We're doing Palo for dinner Sunday night

Hi All,

I think we are going to do "Everybody Loves Rays" in Cozumel and the Tiki Beach Family day in Grand Cayman. I chose the Rays in Cozumel vs Cayman after reading reviews. Has anyone done these excursions before?

Sailing is myself, husband, dd 8 and dd 15. I am seeing lots of other 8 year old girls. My daughter will be very excited to make new friends!!!

There's a thread of Disney Secrets that had awesome ideas!! We're going to do the following:
1 order milk and cookies
2 take pillowcases and sharpies and leave with guest services for autographs
3 take an 11x14 picture mat for characters to sign and leave with guest services
4 leave our passports with guest services so they will get stamped with GC and MX.

I just booked seaworld explorer in grand cayman. I think the girls will like seeing the ship wrecks and fish. We're doing dolphin discovery in Cozumel. We wanted to do the sting ray but our 3 yr old isn't old enough.
