Late Start....

Good Morning Everyone!!

I have been anxious for this cruise since booked back in December. Today I was talking to a co-worker who told me about getting on these boards, and asking why I haven't been on already.... then talking about fish extenders, hidden decks --> deer in the headlights!!

So, I figured I would log on today (better late than never) and write a post up!

This will be our first Disney Cruise, I am a single mom with one very animated and precocious daughter who is 9. We are cruising with her papa, who spoils her and us rotten, and my brother (another adult, but always my baby brother). Heading out from the Kansas City Missouri area, and so excited to get away from the snow we have been getting dumped on us for the last month!!

Cheers!!

Jocelyn - 9

Welcome aboard! Finally someone else from Missouri! We are from Wentzville, MO.

Hopefully you have had a chance to catch up on all the things going via this Thread. The meet and great is scheduled for 3PM at goofy's galley.

Only a week away!

We are just right down the road in Leavenworth. I can't wait for some warm weather since I'm originally from New Orleans. Hope you can make the meet & greet

I have been looking around today and catching up, not getting much done at work :-) Yes, it is good to see people from Missouri - commiserate with the last few weeks of snOwMG!!

Those of us on the Eastern side of the state didn't get hit as hard as the west and KC area.

That being said, I am so ready for spring.... shorts and Flip Flop weather is one week away!!!

Excited!! Not long now!!

Turns out, my boys and hubs will be wearing jeans with button up or collared shirts some nights. The boys literally had outgrown every nice pair of pants they owned except for one. So, one mad shopping dash later, I'm scrambling to find someone to hem the new pants before we leave. Anywho, needless to say, nice jeans will have to suffice a night or two. I just can't justify buying more for the once or twice a year they need dress clothes.

My husband thinks I have lost it with the fish extender stuff, but I know it will be lots of fun! Hoping to meet you all soon! Sweet dreams!

I can't wait to show off the FE my Mom made for my Kids and I! She did an amazing job!!! I think she should go in to business selling them, it is that good. Yeah I might be a little bias

How much packing has everyone done? I've got pirate gear and some of my FE stuff packed. That's it.... You know, the important stuff....

I love Lexington - spent time in the fall wandering through the antique shops on the square! All for the warm weather too, it has been a crazy February!!

My wife is asking about packing & I can't figure out if there is a formal night or not on this one. Can somebody remind me of this information? Thanks.

My family and I will be on this cruise and I'm just learning about the FE's. Is there a "group" to join or is it too late? I'm not sure how I go about finding the info or what to do. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks!
Amy
