Thanks AnneMarie - I will add a note on the first page (tonight, I am supposed to be working at the moment ) that you and Hazel are heading up the Fish Extender list.


Michelle (Squitty) is also going to arrange the private DIS groups for Mojito tastings again.


I am sure we will also have sign ups for other drinks tastings - rum, martini, tequila, beer, wine etc, secret Mickey, candy exchange, DIS Palo group brunch, Palo dinners, Group dining, DIS lanyards, champagne girls meet, pub crawl. etc.....These are just some of the fun DIS things that were organised for the 2011 WBTA. Please feel free to suggest anything else.


If you would like to arrange an event please post on here, to make it fair I think it should be on a first come first served basis and that we should only have one person/couple/family arranging one event so that hopefully everyone that wants to take control and have a hand in arranging something can. Is this ok with everyone?

This is making me so excited!!! It's been so long since having all these great organized events for a big group. I've had several cruises since my 2010 WBTA. All have had FE groups and my last 7-day had a cabin crawl and a private mixology class (so awesome on the Fantasy!!!) but otherwise pretty tame

Hearing the call for more private tastings (Sue Kraft organized all of our tastings on the 2010 WBTA - including the VERY FIRST Mojito tasting ever for DCL), Secret Mickey's, candy exchange, etc. - it's going to be such a blast!!

For those newbies - I found that the more we participated - the more fun it all was!!!!!

So EXCITED!!!!

I have been wanting to do this cruise for years and now we are!!

We are Andrea (will have 45th birthday on cruise! Yay for me!) Andrew (DH- 44) Noah (DS 19) Rachel (DD 11) Sarah (DD 10) and Emma (DD 9)

We have two cabins but I don't want to say the numbers yet because we are waiting to see if we can get adjoining cabins.

We would like to be a part of the FE exchange and Secret Mickey. We haven't done secret Mickey so I need to go do some investigating. But we are all for activities so count us in!

Thanks to those who are coordinating all these things....we appreciate you.

Claire.....I was wide awake til 1:00 pm just thinking about things to do, what fun we had had on the last one, how I had 2 summers to buy new clothes, etc. My mind was just rambling from one thing to another! I finally had to get up and take 1/2 a sleeping pill just to shut my brain up so I could sleep! lol

Hi, Krisann -

So, will you just stay in Europe between the EB & WB ?

The 2010 EBTA has a nice presence here, too! We are so excited, the time will fly.
Wonder who our onboard experts will be, we had such a great time with Imagineer Gary Landrum.

Think Secret Santa - but obviously secret mickey being Disney and all.

The organizer will get information from those that want to participate (favorite color, favorite hobby, favorite character, etc) and each participant is assigned a certain person. You can purchase little surprises for that person and leave them for them (in 2010 I purchased several things and left them throughout the cruise while my Secret Mickey left me something every day - sometimes just a lollipop or piece of candy, etc). We organized a luncheon the last sea day of the cruise where we revealed who had who!!

A lot of fun!!!

Hi Claire

That sounds like a fair plan.

Champagne Girls was so much fun when you did it last time on WBTA 2011, can I organise it this year please?

Mixology was amazing too, we'll need to find a volunteer for that

I'm all excited now ..... Maybe it's the wine .... It's wine o'clock in budapest
