Single digits? Whats our number? I'm so glad I booked my flights, they went up again. Did you hear about the Delta fiasco yesterday? Delta had a huge site glitch and flights were n sanely cheap, like $60 rt to Hawaii etc. Delta is honoring the mistakes. I almost checked my LAX to SLC leg post Mexico. Wish I would have. Who knows, I might be going to Hawaii if I had.

Glad you got your hotel taken care of. I'm still looking, I can't decide. If I find one cheaper, I'll let you know. I need to check our meet thread. Any word on an FE?

Glad you girls are getting closer and closer to the big day!

I heard about the Delta mess. I heard some one way fares were going for as low as $9. Seriously?

I can't believe they're honoring the fares. I wish I was taking part in it. Hawaii for $60 round trip? Pencil me in! I've never been.


Yes, we're inching closer to the cruise. I need to wrap up two reports in the next week. I usually don't slack like this.

Double digits, sadly not single digits yet. I was worried I wrote the wrong thing.


91 Days!!!

I heard something about the Delta thing but had no idea the extent of it, wow!

I havent heard anything new on the FE. Somebody said it was up to 18 cabins, if so I'm not going to join, that's too much traipsing around for me. But I'll have something for you and Joshua.

Im not too happy with the hotel but I figured I better get something. I'd actually prefer to fly in the day of the cruise but the earliest flight is too late for comfort. I also changed the rental car for post cruise since I'll need it longer. Only thing left to do is book the flight home and do my last payment.

Im glad you got your flights before they went up again.

Oops, I meant double. 91 days is so close.

18 cabins on the FE? Do I get each person a gift or each cabin? Is it a gift per day? I may have to rethink it. I donut now how tied to delivering I want to be on our first cruise. I have a few things for you too though. :good vibes

I'll keep you posted on what I find hotel wise. Does SAS have a list of hotels they will transport from? I'll let you share any deal I can find through my Marriott/Hilton friend. You booked your SAS right?

Our last payment is due 1/14/14. I put post it on my work computer to remind me.

So where are you ladies staying before your cruise? I just started looking into stays before our October cruise. I figured I better start thinking about it.

I guess that there aren't any free shuttles.

As far as FE gifts you can do either. Our first cruise we tried to do individually specific gifts, for our second cruise, we did more "for the cabin". Some of the favorites that I received were tootsie roll containers that had a slit cut in the top so that they could be a piggy bank after the tootsie rolls were eaten They had done a cute label on the printer explaining what they were for. The sticker was placed around the tube. We ate all the tootsie rolls and left the tubes. We have a cat litter container for our change.

The worst gift we got was one of those glass blocks painted with a Mickey head and also made into a bank. Yeah, like I'm taking that back on the plane. We abandoned it in the room.

We like food and candy, magnets are good too. There was another gift that was really cool. Someone took a potholder, sewed some snack baggies into the middle and then made a latch to secure it closed. The little baggies had all sorts of stuff you might need on a trip, bandaids, safety pins, shout wipes, antacids, gum, all kinds of little things. I haven't used much of it but I keep throwing the little thing in on my trips cause there is so much useful stuff in there.

The people who give us a paintbrush to "brush the sand" off our feet from being on the beach make me want to

When I first read this, for some reason, I thought I read that you needed a place to stay before our cruise. I was like super excited you changed your cruise to April with us. I have a reservation at some Hampton Inn for a whopping $200 a night but looking for a much cheaper option. We've always got our friends in Miami but sometimes it's hard to make one night work. We'll see though.

There may be. I just don't know where to look.

Thanks for the good gift ideas. I'd hate to waste time and money on junk. No really. Right now, I have a few good things , I don't want to spill the beans. I'll PM you and see what you think.


I'm thinking cabin gifts if there are really 18 of them.

I can not imagine the crap that gets abandoned. That's my issue. I'll bring it ALL home and never throw it away. I have every ticket we've ever had. Hell, I keep Disney envelopes from the mail. Michael finally made me a huge file as I had it all stuffed under our bed.

I think candy is a great idea especially to have during the movies. What does DCL charge for movie candy anyway?

That potholder idea is cute but I'm not crafty at all.

Thats hilarious. Like a little paintbrush?

If Pam closes her eyes, I can post what I've got so far. Is it supposed to be a secret? I haven't a clue if any of the folks from our meet thread are reading this.

Some of the stuff will be total crap, some will be cool and you will be the only one to decide, but for us candy and edibles were good. We gave things like Disney notepads and puzzles and pencils, hairclips, all kinds of stuff and have no idea how folks liked our stuff. On our last cruise we had a big bag of tootsie rolls that Fran bought for herself and on the last day she told me to go take them and put them in every FE that I could find, just to get rid of them.

Yeah, like a one inch one. I thought it was a pretty stupid idea since we didn't dock anywhere near a beach and that they thought we would go to a beach. They didn't know Fran was Handicapped, but I still thought it was lame. We actually got them on both our cruises.

Yep, here's the page of hotels they pick up from

http://www.ridesas.com/html/area_hotels.html

I went through every one and checked out reviews and prices. I so wish that I had booked that Holiday Inn Express when they had a good price, now it's up to $225 or $240.

I haven't booked my SAS pickup yet, just in case I change the hotel.

When we finally get to single digits my heart might not handle the excitement!!!!

I see Alison answered about the FE. I did close my eyes, so not sure if you wrote anything or not

Okay, I am officially losing my mind. The Hampton reservation was for our January cruise. I don't have anything booked yet for March 29. I've been looking at my friend's rates all morning and like none of the SAS hotels are included.

How does that work anyway Pam? Sorry, I'm a little slow, would you mind walking me through this? so we land at Fort Lauderdale and then do I cab/taxi it to my hotel? SAS will transport from hotel to port in the morning right? Then after the cruise, how do I get back from the port to Fort Lauderdale airport?

Joshua would love notepads and puzzles, cute ideas. I need to hit up Target's Dollar section.

I guess it's cute in the fact that it references CC/beach but how hard is it to wipe your feet and we'll before you get back n the ship?

You're too cute. I'm going to email her instead as not to blow any surprises.


Do you call SAS or use their online form. Their form looks confusing. I think I need to call.

I've been going through their hotels are morning.my friend hotel deal doesn't have any on the SAS list so I want to route out taxis from hotel to port. If the diff is less than I may skip SAS. I'll keep you posted on what I find.






90 days!!!




90 days is close, I'm kinda freaking out.

FE gifts rank up there with the reusable mug, tipping, and main dining room dress code debates on the Dis. I generally put together some sort of candy...last time I found "river rock" candy to make Colorado river Rock bags and then used whoppers to make "Moose poop" bags for the kids. I printed out custom labels for the bags. When I did my Med cruise, I had magnets printed up by Vista print. My favorite gifts have been food/candy themed to where people are from.

18 cabins is a lot...are they going to split it into 2 lists? I generally do 1 gift for all the adults in the room and then 1 gift for each younger kid.

Great ideas. I think food/candy is the way to go. I like the magnet idea too. What did you get printed on them?

I like the theme idea. I think we're known for Salt Water Taffy here. Hmm....And green jello. Too bad beer would be such a pita to carry on. We've got great local breweries that play on Utah's abnormalities like polygamy etc....

Mexico...

I'm going to add a little sidebar trip report to this one for our trip to Zihua, Mexico in just 37 days!! to pass the time as I don't have a lot of cruise info to report and won't until it gets closer.

I'm a freak for reports and I've seen others blend a non-Disney report and other real life events into their Disney reports.

I'll be adding details tonight. It's a trip report writing/catching up kind of day.

How does that work anyway Pam? Sorry, I'm a little slow, would you mind walking me through this? so we land at Fort Lauderdale and then do I cab/taxi it to my hotel? SAS will transport from hotel to port in the morning right? Then after the cruise, how do I get back from the port to Fort Lauderdale airport?
No worries yes, land in Fort Lauderdale and get to the hotel. Some of them have complimentary shuttles from the airport. If it's one of the hotels SAS picks up from they will get you in the morning at your hotel and drive you to the port which is about 45 minutes away.

Are your friends rates good? Might be a better fit for a nice hotel and a taxi fare. SAS will pick up from the Port of Miami and take you back to FLL. You don't have to use them for both ways either if you end up at a different hotel.

I'm sure you could work around the hotel issue, SAS picks up from FLL and if you can easily get back to the airport in the morning you could ask them to pick you up from there.

I've used the online form and they get back to you quite quickly. You could always ask about a hotel that's not on their list, they might be flexible.

I'm a freak for reports and I've seen others blend a non-Disney report and other real life events into their Disney reports.

I'll be adding details tonight. It's a trip report writing/catching up kind of day.


37 days is close!!!!!
