Just booked today!

Hi Everyone!
We just booked this cruise today-- I was too excited to see the Magic's new upgrades so I had initially booked the 2-night October 25th cruise, but as time passed, the thought of departing after only 2 nights was making me crazy! So, we decised to wait an extra month & get an extra 3 nights of fun!

Right now it is just myself (Tricia) & DS, 13 (Gavin) but I am trying to talk my Mom & her best friend into joining us as well. I haven't read the past pages yet, but is there a Facebook group for this sailing or a FE group set up?

I've never been so excited for Thanksgiving in my life!

Hi and welcome

I think this is going to be a fun cruise! I don't blame you for wanting to cruise more than just 2 days that would go way too fast for me. We do have a facebook page for this group and you can go to post 71 on this thread for more info on it. Also, we do have a FE group and have around 9 families playing so far. If you're interested either post here or PM me your info with names and ages and room number and I'll add you to the list.
Thanks,
Vicki

Booked

We just booked this cruise while sailing the Fantasy last week. But now that I'm home and checking airfare to Miami/FTL I am finding prices to be crazy high (even SW) so not sure if we are going to keep this or not. Fingers crossed that we can figure something out!

Hi and to the thread!
I know what you mean by pricing; we always drive now a days as we have a total of 8 people in our family! I hope that you are able to join us on this cruise! If you figure something out, please let me know if you would like to join Fish Extenders.

I've added you to the FE list. Just let me know your room number when you get the chance. Also, did you mean DD Reed or DH Reed. I just want to make sure that I get it written correctly for you.

Thanks,
Vicki

Well we are out. Switched to Fantasy sailing instead. Airfare was so much more reasonable to Orlando it made it almost a wash to do that sailing instead of this one with a nights in Miami/FLL added in at end. Enjoy your cruise! Maybe we'll see each other out there in the Western Caribbean!

Newbie here!

My grandmother is taking our whole family on this cruise, so we'll have 4 generations cruising together!

My family of 4 would like to join the FE, if it's still open.

Mike -DH
Lauren -DW
Kit - DD 5
Davis - DS (almost) 2

My husband and I have been on a Disney Cruise before, but not with little ones. Any tips for cruising with little people?

Can't wait!

Hi Tricia,
I have added you and your family to the FE list. Glad to have you guys joining us. It will definitely be a great way to spend Thanksgiving on Castaway Cay with my family. And then a great meal afterwards. Very relaxing!

Hi and welcome I have added you and your family to the FE list too.
We have always traveled with little ones on our cruises. It can be challenging at times, but we find it a lot more relaxing than at the parks. You don't always have to always be on the go. Disney is really good about making your cruise experience special even with the little ones.
They can provide you with a pack and play, diaper genie, etc I always tend to over pack on these trips. (I wish i was better at that ) I also always wash clothes at least a few times on the trip (that helps with the over packing of clothes some) and bring a few treats in my suitcase (and a couple small toys) for the little ones that they like from home. Though there is so much food on the ship from either room service, on deck 10, at the meals that the kids never sem to be too hungry. I also bring beach toys and a stroller for Castaway Cay or other excursions. We always have late dining, so I always make sure the kids have something to eat around 6:00, so that they aren't so starved by 8:00 that they get cranky. Napa are important too, but can be tricky if there is something going on or your on an excursion. Your kids will have fun I am sure. My kids have always enjoyed the clubs and they do have "open houses" for your younger one so that he can go there too sometimes. I hope I have been helpful with a few tips. There is always so much to do on the ship that we never get bored. Just remember that if you don't do everything that you want to do, that is just another reason to book another cruise while on the ship.

Vicki
