Or am I mistaken? Have we already met on the 2010 WBTA? Your handle seems familiar.

Happy Saturday Everyone!!!!

I made some changes to the first post. Hopefully it is an improvement to help all new cruisers joining our cruise to links to the FE, Palo Brunch, Carpooling, Our Facebook Group, and a link to our itinerary for the cruise. Let me know what ya'll think, and I am accepting suggestions to make it better. My little feeling won't be hurt at all....................my little feelings..............won't be hurt.......................no not at all..................my little feelings!!! Seriously, if any one has an idea please let me know. I could use the help here. I want this to be easy and fun for everyone.

Looks great, David. Could you add a comment about the sign-up for the dining room seating? I haven't published the link, since the spreadsheet is editable by anyone viewing it, so if people would just send me a private message I'll send the link so they can add their information to the sheet.

Thanks!

Karen

Karen,

It is done. I copied from your original post and added some to it. Check it out and let me know what you think. If you want it worded any differently just let me know. Also, you had mentioned you would keep a list for families who would like to be seated together. Are you doing that as well? Let me know.

The list is for everyone. Those with children can add their children's ages, and when the time comes to make up the tables they can be seated together.

I think I'm cool with whomever Disney pairs us with.... Unless Disney pairs us with another weird guy playing footsie with me despite me putting my legs as far under my chair as feasible. If this happens I will surely be sitting at the equivalent to Cabanas.

Way too early to even think about it...we have a few other trips planned before this one and have to get those organized! Spent an hour on the phone with DVC this morning trying to get my points fixed...seems they used the wrong points for my January reservation!

We're thinking of taking this cruise and then spending the weekend after at WDW. Last time I was there was 1978, yeow.

You're probably looking at my post count and saying "and where has she been," and the answer is over on the Cruise Critic message boards because we've been cruising every year since 1995, although we haven't taken a Disney cruise yet. In fact I went to see if there was a roll call for this cruise at CC, and someone posted the link to the DIS boards.

The next question is why haven't we cruised Disney, and don't laugh, one reason is there is no library on board the ships. I can't travel without being able to read, and dragging half a dozen books has become an extreme hassle. Then the book gods invented Kindle, I finally bought one, and so the lack of a library excuse is gone! I saw this itinerary, and thought hey, I can go to WDW without flying. (Okay, I have to fly home but whatever.)

Anyway, I'll let you know if we finally book this cruise, but it looks good right now.

I am organizing a book exchange. Just in case you get on the boat and realize "crap... I don't want to read any of these books."

scopewest & family to the cruise!!! Hope you decide to join us. And, glad you were able to find us. This would be your first Disney Cruise!!! How exciting. You will have a GREAT time. When I was reading your post I said to myself..............self you need to tell scopewest to get a kindle. Then as I continued reading I saw you had bought one. My DW and I both have one, and they are great. We plan to have ours all loaded up with books we want to read. Not sure just how much reading we will do, but we will have the kindles all set to go. We are planning on flying out to CA a few days early to go to Disneyland before the cruise. We have never been to Disneyland. So this cruise was an excellent opportunity to see Disneyland too!! A good one for you to visit WDW again!!! Again hope you decide to join us!!!

Not sure it is too early to be thinking about Nachi Cocoom ( Cozumel) or however you spell it. It fills fast and we really enjoyed it last time we went.

There is a 5 day double dip out of Port Canaveral immediately after this cruise if anyone is really upset about missing CC....I am seriously considering it..I know I must be crazy...my DH wouldn't probably go..or he may skip the PC and just do that...either way I may be single on one or the other.
