East of Smithtown, is likely very near me! Cue the music... It's A Small World After All! I look forward to meeting you in Jan, I may be your in-laws neighbor!

We were undecided as to what to do on our Nassau day also... opted for Sheraton Cable Beach, only to just find out they no longer can be booked on points (we have a lot of points!) and were exploring other options when I looked to see how many people/ships would be in port with us...

Found this on cruisett.com

03-Jan-14 18980 Carnival Sensation, Celebrity Constellation, Disney Magic, Disney Dream, Norwegian Epic, Carnival Breeze

That 18,980 is the number of people! (On all ships combined)
Ergo, we will stay on board!

hmmmmm...

Ya the 7:45 start time has me reconsidering. We are going to reflect a little bit more on our priorities for this trip. I didn't even think about the pirate party, we are always exhausted at the end of that night. I think a relaxing day on board sounds better. That was our original plan anyway...

Yay! More people for Mixology! I'll ask for more details as we get closer to 25 people. Yeah, I cancelled Blue Lagoon weeks ago after I heard how many boats would be in Port. I'm thinking Key West is my get off the boat day, maybe. I'm planning, planning, planning right now. What to pack, what to leave home. Next project is to clean and organize my bathroom. I always end up buying stuff unnecessarily at the end of packing (band aids razors cold med. sun burn stuff etc) when I know I have it but have run out of time to find it! Not this year! Since I'm driving and not flying, I'm bringing all that medicinal stuff so I don't have to buy it in Florida! I'm even bringing full size beach towels! Disney ones, of course! I collect them. They are my fav Wdw souvenirs. I still have the Castaway Club beach towel from our second cruise!

Holy cannoli! That's a lot of people!
Okay - totally not regretting our decision to cancel Blue Lagoon.

Re: Nassau & cruise crowds in general - We were in Atlantis this past May, and the crowds from the cruises the first few days made it impossible to relax. I can't imagine that the cruisers felt any better. Too bad they can't stagger the ships' port days to spread out the guests.

There's gonna be some horn wars going on! Unless they are not allowed to do that in port at Nassau. I hope they haven't changed the Magic's Horn! I prefer the old ships sounds to the new ships horn. More deep and authentic.

Thanks so much! I'm glad your play went so well. Snoopy huh? Sounds like a future job reference for being a character in the parks!~

As you can see, i am definitely not a cold weather person ... We already had snow over the week end

Does anyone know when we will close the FE list ? I have started and would like to be able to have everything done before we leave for Florida. Will we also get a list with ages and gender per stateroom ? Sorry if this has been answered before, i forgot and didnt take the time to go over all of our pages. The joy of getting older ... lol

Let me know,

Tks
Josee, from cold Canada !
Yeah, we got some snow a week ago ourselves and usually snow passes us by. I'm not a fan either!

I just hope it doesn't snow around Christmas or Christmas Day. Sorry to all those hoping for a White Christmas. I don't want anything hindering our first driving Road Trip to Florida. I'm even gonna open a Facebook Page for Our Road Trip 'cause my mother and friends are freaked that I'm doing this! We did many driving vacations growing up but my Mom thinks having Dad along made all the difference.

I would have drove down in previous trips but she talked me out of it every time. This time I'm standing firm!......and I don't have the money to fly.

It would be nice to have an app that is linked to this board on our smartphone and beeps when someone writes something .. I am sure this day will come .

j.barbeau@d2technologie.com
Well, the DIS app doesn't beep but if you subscribe to this thread, it will display a '1' when someone adds to the thread. It's just hard to write paragraphs on my iphone. I don't think you can use smilies either.

I use the DIS app to read threads when I'm at the doctor's office and other places mostly. Then I write or add to threads when I get home. I don't have that thumb action my kids do. It's amazing how fast they can type with their thumbs!

Oh boy! Did you add her or not? OY VEY is right! What are you gonna do, she's your mom.

Hey, I added to the google doc and when I went to check my room number on Disneycruise dot come I noticed we received a slight upgrade. We went from 11C to 10A which is actually cheaper than the cat. 11's right now. Not sure why? They put us on the 7th floor. So that's nice.

Did you guys see this? I totally missed it:

Disney Cruise Line releases onboard schedule via app
by Leah Zanolla
Sep 7, 2013

Disney Cruise Line is testing a new app that will give cruisers access to the daily Navigators on their smartphones. Currently, the paper Navigators are delivered to staterooms each night and serve as a guide to activities happening around the ship. Available for both iOS and Android devices, the Disney Fantasy - Navigator app works via the ship's internal Intranet and will provide more content than the paper copy. The app works while your phone is on Airplane Mode and doesn't use the pay-per-minute satellite internet connection.

Cruisers can use a "favorites" function to virtually highlight the activities they want to do while on the cruise. A calendar will be available for the whole sailing, so you can make plans in advance. Click on each item and more detailed information about the event will pop up. Each day, check the app for the daily schedule, information on the port of call, weather forecast, sunrise and sunset times, character meeting times and the dress code for dinner. You can even check the menus for the main dining rooms, the Drink of the Day selection and a ship-wide map.

The app's functionality is currently only available for the September 7th and 14th sailings on the Disney Fantasy, but it will be expanding to the other three ships soon.

I would love to be a princess in the parks. I love to do improv. But I want to be an electrical engineer, so that's not happening. I tell people that acting is my backup plan though.
I was wondering what everyone is doing before the cruise. I'm going to go to Disney on the twenty ninth til the second.
One of my friends that I met on my last cruise lives in Miami so i think I will be able to see her!!!!!!!
I realized I didn't say what I'm doing in the port of calls. So in key west I'm doing the kayak snorkel sail. I really like to kayak!
In Nassau I think I'm going to a Hilton to use their beach pass- my mom is planning that.

Your welcome!

Hey, quick question. Is the price of a 12 pack of Pepsi or Coke products still outrageous in Florida?

It was like late 5's, 6's, and 7's last time I was there and I can get soda on sale here for 3 for 11 or 4 for 10 this past 2 weeks.

Just asking cause my kids are soda drinkers (bad habit) and since I'm driving..... ...and have tons of Styrofoam coolers.
