Hello everyone! I hope that all is well. DH and I will now be arriving in Orlando 2 days before the cruise. We are going to Universal and Busch Gardens. We are going to do the things we can't do with the kids. I am so excited ! Has anyone started on their FE? I must say I have not. Since our group is small it won't take as long to complete. I was trying to hold out for more people.

Are we definitely doing FE's? I would love to participate if we are. I don't have a FE for the door so what do you suggest we use - maybe a beach bag?

Yes, we can definitely do that. A beach bag would work, just hang it on the fish outside of your room. DH and I may go for a upgrade at the port. If so our room number will change. I will leave a message in everyone's bag. If there is no note then we were unsuccessful.

We may go for an upgrade at the Port as well. How will we find everyone? What time is our meet and where is it going to be held? How many fe gifts do we need and what are the kids ages? Also what are the cabin numbers?

I am going to be wore out!

Well DH has decided that we are going to do Universal and Busch Gardens before the cruise. So we are staying at the Loews Royal Pacific at Universal. I chose this hotel,because you get into Harry Potter an hour before the park opens and you get unlimited express pass on the rides that are participating. Then we are doing Busch Gardens because we get in free. We will spend the night at Buena Vista Hotel and spa with dinner somewhere in Downtown Disney. I am so excited to finally be able to say that we leave for our cruise next month.

Yippee!

We will now be spending 3 days in Orlando prior to the cruise. I now have to start sorting out my wardrobe. I am normally packed 3 weeks prior. DH always say I over pack, however when I don't over pack I end up leaving something behind that I needed.

I love it! 3 days is just enough time to get tired enough to relax on the cruise

I too overpack, but it's so hard to downsize. Last weekend, I went to a training for the weekend, and I think I was packed for about 5 days. Lol. I feel the same way. If I don't something will be left.

We are doing just the night before the cruise, because our flight gets in at 10:30PM that night. But after the cruise we will be at the Polynesian until Friday. Almost feels backwards. Rest then play. In the past went age always played then rested.

Because we are surprising the kids, I will have to pack for everyone and my 10 year old normally loves to help. However, I have begun the staging process in the guest room. Lol. Shhh

I'm still in. I will post my room number later this AM. We finally got it! Well we got it a few weeks ago, but up to last Friday, life was hectic. I'll also post the rest of the information but we are in.

How will we do this? One gift in the FE? Gifts for kids? Gifts each day? This is my first time and I have see others do it so many different ways. I get confused. Lol. =)

I wish we were staying before the cruise, but I guess the one late night at OKW will have to do. I'm still debating a car, or ME. Either way we will have a car at some point.

I will post my info before noon today. Thanks!

New Info :-)

We can meet at the Cove Cafe on deck 4 around 2:30 if that is ok with everyone. Here we can let each other know if our room assignments have changed, because I will try for an upgrade as well. In the meanwhile here is the info

Tori
DH
Cabin 9521

S'smom
DH
DD(10)
DS(4)
Cabin 6534

Speakupjc
DH
Dance(need to know boy or girl and age)
Cabin 9543

4WDWFANS
DH
DW
D-MIL
DS (age 13)
DS (age 6)
Cabin(?)

Don
Gail
Cabin 10000

On past FE exchanges I have given each person a gift. You should visit each cabin only once, unless you want to hand out gifts each day. It is totally each individuals choice on how they would like to hand out gifts. The gifts should be handed out by the 2nd night( so before we arrive to Castaway Cay). I will update this post when I receive the other info.

Have a great week! We our getting closer

UPDATE!!! Ok, my Cabin #is 6534. I reserved a Category 7A, and it looks like we got an upgrade to an Category 5D!! I will take it.

Tiny bit nervous about the balcony, because we have never had one. It was always the single window, and on our last Dream cruise, we had the huge window / window seat. I loved it. But this trip is a trip of firsts so I am excited!!! Thank you for the clarification for the FE. Now I can proceed properly.
