I don't know if my wife might've replied on FB, but I suspect that's the one that we're doing. On June 1st. I don't have a way to check at the moment.

Those on Facebook have a different list going, some with more names or cabin numbers. But it is in a "closed" group so I know some felt more open to list their cabin there versus here. You might have to use that list if you are over there.

Same thing for FE list - some had indicated they did not want children's names published.

So to cover all bases, I will use the one and only public list we have had - that people submitted on their own -- our webpage list. Any other list will need to be gathered by folks on their own. I cannot be held responsible for putting info out there on the DIS Navigator and will use only the "public" list. I just can't go through getting my rear chewed again publicly or behind my back while on vacation - so erring on the side of caution to keep everyone's info secure.
Anyone that wants their Roll Call information updated can PM me, use the Contact the WebMaster form on our EBTA website, or even re-submit your information on the Roll Call Entry page. This will create a duplicate line but I can merge the lines together. But, this last option relies on me getting the merge correct.

9 days!

Yay!! I just thought of you when catching up on posts. I need to see one -- have booked them before and never ended up in one. Booked in one for WBTA 2014... so I am still interested to see one in-person. Thank you, Stevie!!

What will Mary think with you have all sorts of women in your room? Adding to that divorce checklist I mentioned earlier!

Just teasing ya.

How much should we plan to bring in Euros for a week in Barcelona? My parents tried to tell me to get $2000 -- I was like "Whaaaa?" I thought most places took Visa/MC and I'll just need a little cash for cabs, little shops and cafes, etc. Or no?

And how many British pounds for Gibraltar?

Awesome!! You know you are wanting to avoid work anyway, right?

I will be able to paste that info in at last second. Hoping to publish DIS Navigator on Wednesday. May 15.

I've started as I mean to go on thanks to Emily

Just walked from Tremont House to Walmart, 6 mile walk due to me getting lost and heading in the wrong direction leaving The Tremont oops
At least I'm getting the blisters out of the way early.

For those staying at the Tremont it's a beautiful hotel

Make sure you pick up some moleskin at Walmart. It works great for blisters! I will also have some blister stuff with me on the ship if you need it.

So on the way home from Ohio last weekend, hubby points to my feet that were up on the dash and asked if he did that. Well it turns out, my toes were smashed and there is blood under the nails. So either, hubby danced on my feet, someone else danced on my feet, my right foot danced on my left foot or bowling in 4" heels wasn't such a good idea (I got a spare!) So much for my feet looking cute on the cruise and getting a pedicure. Good thing I was consuming a lot that night so it didn't hurt but running is a different story. Looks like we can have ugly feet together.

The lengths some people will go to get the booze treat yourself to a nice fire and ice pedicure, book the little one into the kids club and enjoy.

Please say hello to a friend of mine, Naomi in the kids club and tell her "I have packed the easter eggs" I am not joking, I have packed three of them.

Thank you for the Tremont update!! I am looking forward to staying there!

And Walmart??? Oh my. That *IS* a huge walk! You are crazy! Did you at least get to look at some neat houses on the way?

So since you have nothing else to do, are you going to give us a play by play of the Magic sailing in tomorrow morning?

Thanks for that, Noel. We are trying to time it afterwards to meet some folks.

99% chance the forecast is inaccurate Hubby's job at work requires watching the weather the entire shift (multiple weather medias), and he is always complaining how none of the forecasts get it right. 100% chance of Happy Sails!!

Have a backup plan as far as credit cards go. I had friends who just came back from Spain and they had a lot of issues with using their CC because it was not the Chip/Pin variety. I've been doing up some reading and Visa/MC says "technically" you are supposed to insist that they swipe the card. The problem is you could find yourself at a restaurant or shop where language is a barrier and they simply say No.

Not saying it'll happen.. but have a backup plan that doesn't rely on credit cards.

And with that said... we ordered $1k worth of Euros from Wells Fargo. They Fedexed it overnight .. no extra fee (because it was over $1k). Only drawback, you had better be home to sign for it.

We're going to take our chance on the ATM / CC in Gibraltar. Only one day there and outside of the DCL excursion we do we figure we aren't going to need to be so reliant on cash.
