What is it about the kids born in the summer of '09? My twins (born July 2nd) are huge for their age (wear sizes 6-7) despite being preemies. We know a few twins born July-August of that year who are the same.

That is going to be us in a few years. Kids are 3.5, we are closing in on 42.

Closing in on 43, kids 7 & 10. And I have got to pay more attention. We have a disboard color? Will hunt around for something lime green.

Thanks so much for this information! You just took a big thing off the to-do list. We well get there yet!

My girls were born in 2004...one 5 weeks early, one 12 weeks early...hence two kids in 2004! I am thrilled we have a small group of kiddos on this cruise!

Can't wait to meet Lexa and her, similarly aged, family

Almost May 6th!!!!

Sorry to hear you will miss the cruise but what fantastic news about your job. You can do a PC cruise another time but the chance of a job isn't always there.

The corkage fee is charged when you bring your own bottle to the main dining rooms. Those of us who bring bottles on board for consumption in their own stateroom don't have to pay it.

He is one of the new knees. We are looking forward to a nice relaxing vacation, but enjoy meeting new friends! Please don't hesitate to introduce yourself to us!

Mary,

We will be easy to spot in embarkation day... All four of us will have red shirts on! Us being my DH, and my parents. Dad will be easy to spot... White hair and a cane. He will talk to anyone and has asked if he is the oldest person on this cruise at 84 almost 85! If your husband and he strike up a conversation I'm sure Dad would love swap knee stories. We too are looking for a relaxing trip and meeting new people.

Scott and I are forty-somethings who refuse to act our age - we're really hoping that they do an Oceaneers adult evening so we can learn how to make flubber!

He's pretty easy to spot in a crowd, since he's 6' 4" (we joke that if we ever go to Disneyland Tokyo, Shanghai or Hong Kong - we'll quickly learn the local term for "giant American man")

Jackson's birthday is July 4th. You talk about the same age wow. He also wears 6/7 but I agree for twins that really is unusual

Disneyland after WBPC

We are going to Disneyland for 2 days after the cruise. Does anyone know of any discounts available for admissions?

There are very rarely discounts for 2 days. Sometimes in Southern california there are discounts at grocery stores for 3 days, but they usually don't start until June.

Your other option is to check with your hotel for a package, but unlikely.
