I have hobbit feet if I don't get a pedicure before the trip. I will be down if anyone wants to nerd it up... board games? Cookies and (soy) milk and games?

Kidlette, you up for starting a sign-up and figuring out availability for those interested? If so, David could probably add that to the first page of 'group' activity sign-ups.

Hi Maria,
I might be willing to take this on, but is it really necessary? It sounds like most of you get your feet done regularly, but I've only had it done once...ever. I also don't get or like massages....ever. This means that I've only been in the ship's spa once, for the one pedi I've had in my life. Granted, I LOVED it! But still, this means I've only seen 1 little room in the spa. In the room I was in there were only 2 pedi tub things, which means only 2 of us could go at once (which might explain why the spa appointments are limited). Does anyone know if there are more pedi tubs throughout the spa, or are the 2 I've seen the only ones there? If there are only 2, then we should just pair up. And if that's the case, maybe we should just PM each other once we get a better idea for who we think we might want to go with. For instance, people getting massages can book together, people doing pedi's only can pair up, etc. I don't know, thoughts everyone?

I got my first ever massage on the Magic in 04' and I've had exactly 2 more since then, that last one at AKL in Dec. 10'. I only splurge on them at Disney. I would possibly like to get my hair styled again for formal night. That was the most amazing updo I've ever had and all she used was her fingers. .

Unfortunately for me, I got really frustrated a couple of weeks ago when it hit 111 degrees at my house and I chopped all my hair off! I walked in, sat down, said, "give me a pixie cut," and that was it. lol, now I look like a man! It has a year to grow out though, so cross your fingers for me that mine will be long enough for something like that then!

I had massages when I was younger (a couple of times) and I never cared for it. It's just not for me. I'm TOTALLY in for a pedi, and maybe a mani if I have enough cash at the time. I'd also rather get my pedi done on the cruise. It sounds like some of the other ladies have good places to go to before the cruise, but I don't have any spa or salon near me that I would trust to do a good job. Besides, why wouldn't you want it done on the ship?!? I mean - have you seen the view from the pedi chair?!?!?!? ASTOUNDING!!

While I have a few minutes before I have to leave the house for the day, I want to make an announcement to all my fellow cruisers of this group. Due to a family matter, I must step down as the "go to" person of this group. I won't be able to spend much time here on the DIS Board for a while. Not sure how long yet either. Our son needs some help and I will be spending time at his home with him. I will be around from time to time, but I just can't devote the time to our thread and give it the proper attention it needs and deserves to make this the best thread here on the DIS Board. I tried to make this thread fun and exciting for everyone, and with all of your help and ideas, I think we were a success.

Beverly, (DisneyMouseHouse), has graciously agreed to take over the thread. She will be starting a new thread for us, renaming it so she has the first post, and taking care of everything for everyone. I know she will do a GREAT job for all of us. This is a great group of people on this thread, with allot of wonderful ideas and suggestions. I thank you all for all of your help and suggestions to make this a great thread for everyone. I look forward to meeting everyone once we all get on board the Wonder in September 2014.

That's really funny, because we JUST did the EBTA and we were told it would not be a problem, that we just had to supply everyone's ressie number and get it done. In fact, I know our EBTA group had TWO Palo group brunches on the cruise (with different people in each group.)

It's not booked on line like other things are, you deal specifically with someone in charge of group-type items like private alcohol tastings. I have that person's contact information and I do plan on contacting them to find out for sure, as I am SURE they have better info than anyone at the "normal" DCL number (from experience!)

I'll check it out and let you know when she gets back with me what the scoop is, but since it's so far out, we probably won't be able to get confirmations until about 30 days out (that how it has always worked in the past)

Good wishes to you David, and I did PM you with my reply - but I will post the info here too:

I have started a new thread for this cruise, and I am working on getting the first page info updated with all of what David has on his first post. The new thread is here and you are welcome to start posting on that thread now if you would prefer. Eventually, when IrishCowboy gets to it, this thread will be closed and moved here:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3144990

I do have a couple of questions/comments, tho....

For the Palo Group Brunch.......I know there is some debate on whether this is going to be allowed, however, I will continue to keep the sign up list up and going.........since it is such a long time until our cruise, things WILL change and we'll just have to adopt a "wait and see" attitude. I will try to find out what is going on as of now, but no guarantees that will be the case in 15 months, either.....

There was also a car pool list - can someone please tell me WHO was heading that up so I can get your contact info on the first thread in case someone has questions? Thanks so much!

Beverly

This looks like a great group to travel with.
No longer possible, as Eje commented too many people were doing this. HOWEVER! If that is all one wants - go to Palo (dressed correctly of course) and ask to sit at the bar.

If they still allow the group brunch (just e-mailed the contact person I know on shore-side) then they count that as your one allowed - so you can't book another one on-line prior to boarding. However, you can always try to get a second ressie once on board (and on a 14 day cruise, it's possible you can get more than two!)

Same with dinner, they usually have something set up on debarkation day on the ship with the people from Palo taking ressies for those that didn't pre-book.

I would, however, recommend going there as soon as you can as they do tend to book up fairly quickly!

Then you are a better person than I because I know I won't be able to do that (read all the posts) even from when we were gone earlier!

That's a GREAT idea - if we did Triton's we'd just have to "warn" them - they'd make every effort to sit us all together (we did a PJ breakfast on the EBTA and it was a LOT of FUN!). Let me see what I can find out, and of course, we can always do both! Would you like to head up the list?

I'd be glad to add that to the new thread, Kidlette, just let me know info and what you'd like them to do - if you would let me know the info and stuff, i'll add to the first page of the new thread!

Unfortunately, my iMac has had a stroke or something, (no worries all photos are on a separate hd) but they are not attached to my laptop nor do I have a photobucket acct.
I'm in for any photo opportunities.....as I know DH will be as well!!!


And, well, I GUESS you can twist my arm on the chocolate-alcohol thing....I GUESS!!!
Glad to hear the photos are safe and hope you get things sorted out so you can get access to them soon.

I be more than happy to arrange some photowalks. There is no need for any signups, but always nice to know if people want to come and get an idea how many. I will figure out some decent times when photowalks might be good and post the times and dates as well meet up place(s). On the last cruise we did 2 that I lead, one was a early 6am sunrise walk, the second one was a sunset walk with close to full moon around 9pm late on in the cruise. I offered a alternative date early on in the cruise for anyone that wanted for a full moon walk (me and DW had a palo dinner that night so I couldn't join but would be a good photo op for anyone that wanted).

Normally I'm not a morning person, but on our 14 night EBTA cruise, by the time we crossed over and the morning we arrived to Maderia I woke up way early and ended up going on a photoshoot as we approached Maderia and got some nice sun rise pictures, lo and behold same thing happened on the morning we arrived to Gibraltar.

As for alcohol, we don't drink - at all. We're usually the "party poopers" of EVERY group we do. Don't get me wrong, we love to have fun (obviously, we love Disney), but we just don't drink. It's not a religious thing or a recovering addict thing, we just don't drink. I LOVE chocolate though!
Think it would be amazing if we arrived to the enterance of panama canal in the morning, would make for some great pictures I think. Is the passing through the canal single day even or do we spend more than a day passing through? If the later that would make for a great sunrise as well sunset photo opportunity.

Would love to have you join, the more the merrier. The sunrise well being the cruise is in Sep wouldn't be to awful early but would be early for sure (7am maybe / guessing here right now) . The sunset I would guess would be around 8-9pm, bit of trouble for anyone with late dining but I think since it's just a one time event, skipping regular dinner and just get something in the buffet could be worth it, or if it's late enough, with good servers and by skipping desert could easily make it.

Our son needs some help and I will be spending time at his home with him. I will be around from time to time, but I just can't devote the time to our thread and give it the proper attention it needs and deserves to make this the best thread here on the DIS Board. I tried to make this thread fun and exciting for everyone, and with all of your help and ideas, I think we were a success.

Beverly, (DisneyMouseHouse), has graciously agreed to take over the thread. She will be starting a new thread for us, renaming it so she has the first post, and taking care of everything for everyone. I know she will do a GREAT job for all of us. This is a great group of people on this thread, with allot of wonderful ideas and suggestions. I thank you all for all of your help and suggestions to make this a great thread for everyone. I look forward to meeting everyone once we all get on board the Wonder in September 2014.
Sorry to hear, hope nothing serious. Take care of what you need to. I might be partial but I'd say you left the group in great care (with my DW).

Thanks for verifying that Cayla. Didn't know you could go sit at the bar and get one, great idea and suggestion.

In 2008, we were at the head of the canal by 6:30 because they wanted to be pretty close to first if not first in line and we started through the canal around 8 or 8:30 in the morning. We exited the last lock after sunset, probably 7:30 -7:45. I do not it was almost dark by then!!!
