I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

Hopefully it hasn't put you off signing up
I did sign in today!

I am dealing with issues other than cruising these days, so not active here. However, today I looked at my pins and am thinking how I will bring some special ones to show and I will love to meet and talk to people at this event!!

I also appreciate getting all of the information.

Is there a target number for the FE groups. I have not signed up because the number of participants is so high. Now I have read about subgroups. Can someone please elaborate?

Bobbi, Sarah said earlier that she would limit the top number to 20 cabins (that is how I remember it) There may be more people but a lot of people just do one cabin gift so that should at least get you started. can't wait!

That's what I thought would be cool, people sharing stories on why pins are special to them

Glad we made it to the new thread!

I am finalizing our plans for Port Adventures. I have looked on Trip Advisor and then basically just picked what I thought we would like. Not the best strategy, but whatevs, I love traveling and seeing/doing new things so I'm sure it will all be fine!

Sometimes, that's the best way to do it!! It can lead to some fun and exceptional experiences.

That's what I try to do now, I tend to over plan things lately and I need to stop doing it!

I like to phrase it as "maximizing our vacation time available"

It drives me nuts if we wander around aimlessly trying to figure out what to do, where to eat, how to get from Point A to Point B.... when I could have had it figured out previously. There's such a limited time when on vacation I try to get everything in as efficiently and affordably as possibly.

So no... you are not over planning You are maximizing and becoming efficient so you can enjoy vacation

ETA: When you have two little ones with you, it's a definite to have a little over-planning

I agree, with kids in tow, planning is definitely needed more. Don't want a meltdown because someone is too tired or hungry to wait.

That's true especially because me and DB are so indecisive with things like that. We will walk around saying oh shall we eat there, or there? Then we end up at somewhere neither of us wanted to go because we thought the other wanted to go there!! Lol
