We just returned from a 17 day roadtrip from Montana to San Diego and back. 6 days at Disneyland and the others at various friends and family along the way. Good times, but we are tired and have been out of the internet loop for most of that time. Which I must say has been very nice....but, I am so glad we are back and logged in today since I need to book Palo and excursions for our friends traveling with us! I had not given it any thought as to when booking would be!

Are they Silver? That opens tonight. The rest of my family are first timers so we can't book them anything until 75 days out.

Honestly, I've only been there the once, and the menu is so big! My friend and I shared some appies, something we love to do, can't remember which ones though... the best part was we took the cheesecake back to the hotel cause we were so full and after a dip in the hot tub we all splayed out on the floor of our room and watched the DL fireworks Now I'll always remember that when I think of Cheesecake Factory... and The Big Bang Theory of course

This is an awesome idea!

Cabo: again probably will do this on our own, my aunt and uncle go every year so I'll ask them what's good, but may decide on a excursion at the last moment

Lorena and Jason both 23 VGT it's our honeymoon


I'm just putting together some questions for the Secret Mickey will post them soon! I'm excited to do check-in and bookings tonight, that and relax, I made all our invitations, put them into and sealed the envelops and addressed them, now to hand them out/mail them... flower consultation tomorrow and have to organize the favours, have my dress hemmed and steamed, and finish the tentative seating plan but it's all coming along!

Secret Mickey


Secret Mickey is where participants are given a room to buy a gift for and the recipients stipulate whether it is a gift for all occupants of the room or just some, i.e just children, and give details of what the recipient likes such as princesses, fairies, toy story etc. Much like a Secret Santa.


Rules:
Maximum/minimum amount of gifts (for example: 3 gifts during the cruise and then 1 gift at the reveal moment.): TBA (let me know any preference)
Participants can be set up the way you want (ie, the whole stateroom, a couple, one child, two children, one adult, only the adults from a stateroom, only the children form a stateroom).
A maximum amount of $ for the total of gifts. Amount:TBA (again let me know preference here)
Cut off date for signing up is: April 6th (gives one month till cruise)
Reveal moment: Last day at sea, will determine time and place


Please send one pm thru DISBoards per Secret Mickey (if you participate as a couple then you are one Secret Mickey but i need the info of you both. If you have 2 kids that you want to be seprate Sectret Mickey's send 2 pm's).
The info send to me by pm will only goes to your assigned Secret Mickey.

What i want to know of each participant is:

Email adress:

Stateroom #
Name:
Gender:
Age:
Hometown + State/Country:

Hobby's:
Best Movie:

So far every day they are offering Brunch still has openings for a party of two. I can't check for bigger parties as we are only 2.
