Oh I forgot to mention I hate the beach and I LOVE CC. I guess it's more that everything is right there and it's not that crowded. A friend said it's like WDW at the beach. I really would have liked to have done some of the cruises out of Galveston but wish they had started the shorter ones earlier and offered more options for CC. That would have sold me for sure!
Interestingly, Aulani doesn't thrill me. It is not on the most picturesque part of the island (actually the ugliest IMO) and there is nothing to do out there (aside from the actual resort, which of course, is magical). Once you step outside the boundaries of the resort, it's just meh.

I also do not like crowds, so I'm with ya on that one! I am looking forward to the perks of CC for sure. I think I was only looking at Port Adventures and not at the actual CC page, so I thought that's all there was to do.

You should give Hawaii a try again! And definitely go to the outer islands!

Sept, 12, 2014 is the 14-night Panama Canal cruise from San Diego to Port Canaveral: http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/cr...-canal-cruise/

I like the westbound TA itinerary much better than the 12-night eastbound. However, if I want to go to Caribbean ports, I will book a Caribbean cruise.

Our office building shares the parking garage and overlooks the New Castle County Courthouse, where the shootings took place yesterday. We had a first hand account of the action and from my office window, we got the see the body covered for most of the day...I am just thankful that I get to the office at 7am and since it was raining, we didn't walk to the courthouse for our morning coffee (the DD is in the lobby...

This is what my friend also told me. She said we would be crazy to stay there!

👍 I was too eager and didn't scroll down that far 😜

Yeah the eastbound is pretty poor.

How could you NOT want to hang around for more of that? What is wrong with her? haha

I think it's funny that you found a friend from Hawaii and I found DH from WV! People that grew up here are weird -- hard for us to stay away and many of us return home after exploring "the states". The ocean, weather, and people always bring us back.

Where is she getting married?

We had a choice of AKV or Aulani when we bought DVC in June. I was like "Uh no, I never want to go there, and certainly am not going to waste my 11 month privilege there when I can get some cheap Kama'aina rate anyway." I'd rather fly 7500 miles to my home resort haha.

Love this idea, too! We always bring one lanyard with just our special pins, we rotate them depending on what we are doing!

I just managed to cruise thru some of the posts, man this thread got active FAST!

Glad to see some kind of new faces, too...

Still reading......

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
Too funny, Mandy - I am about the same, but have tried to learn some otherwise too! Best time we had on our last Med cruise was when DH and I decided to wing it and we just got off and went to see what we could do. Lovely HOHO carriage ride and then a beer in a cafe right by the port!

Understand about kids tho, since ours have gotten a bit older now, not as big of a worry - they are better at winging it than I ever will be!

Good for you. My MIL had skin cancer and she doesn't holiday in the sun and never even sits in it!!

It annoys me how people take skin cancer so lightly. A lot of people don't realise how serious it is. MIL nearly died from it

Is rope swing what I think it is? You hold on and swing to drop in the water? I hope so

We wanted to do the parasailing but we are too fat! Haha!

What does everybody think of the new itineraries then? I am loving the Westbound. It looks awesome. However it is is our 10 year anniversary at the end of September 2014 and we wanted to be away for that day. We are also set on going to the Maldives for 7 nights and Tokyo for another 7 to celebrate it. If the Fantasy had been doing the new 7 night SC and then we could have has 7 nights in WDW, I may have been swayed

Am I the only one who thinks it would be a nice change for the Wonder to come over to Europe? I would have tried to take some days unpaid from work to fit a 4 or 7 night in if it had been the Wonder.
