February 20, 2015 Wonder Cruise

I didn't see a thread so I wanted to start one for the February 20th, 2015 cruise. It's more than a year away but it's never too late to start planning.

Due to some reports of spamming (possibly from the google doc that was previously listed here) I have removed that document and made it private. I will be keeping a separate spreadsheet and will share near the end when we close the lists.

If you would like to join the FE, please send me a message here, on the Disboards, including:
Stateroom #:
Main or Late Dining:
City, State, Country:
email address:
DisBoards user name:
Notes (include allergies here):
Adult names:
Adult favorite characters:
For each child include:
Kids name-
Age-
Favorite Character-
T-shirt size-


FAQ's
* We will start a new list at 20 cabins, so that each group has a max. of 20 cabins
* Please add shirt sizes for kids at time of sailing (has to do with my FE gift, thanks!)
*Please add allergies, celebrations, other items in the notes/other column on the google doc.
* If you switch cruise dates or move cabins, please PM me or delete/correct your info. from the google doc.
* Please note the Facebook group for our cruise here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/211375989072779/

We just decided today to book this cruise.

I've also created a FB group for this cruise

We were on the Fantasy 2 weeks ago on our first cruise and knew we wanted to rebook onboard. The good price of this voyage was an encouragement!

The February trip was my 5yo DD, Nana and myself. This next time it will be my DD and I; Nana and Papa as well as Grandma and Grandpa!

Already counting down sleeps!

EEEEk!! I'm so excited! We just went to WDW for the very first time 2/22 - 3/1. We knew we needed to start planning next year's family vacation immediately and were THRILLED to discover the price of this cruise was sooo affordable! Our 3 kids (12, 10 & 3 1/2) are going to be so excited when they find out (it's a surprise for now). So, I'm definitely requesting to join the fish extenders for this trip and the fb page! Hooray!!!

I think I'm technologically dumb... I can't figure out how to add our info to the google doc! LOL (btw, we're 10 doors down from you Lauriem624!!)

You should just be able to click on it and start typing. It will save your info. when you close. Let me know if you can't do it.

We participated in the FE exchange on our last cruise and it was great fun! Lauriem624, are you taking on the organization of the FE group(s) on the Feb 20, 2015 Wonder cruise?

If so, are you going to top each group at a certain number of cabins? We did this on ours and it worked out great! Once a group was full (15 cabins) a new group was started. I've heard of some groups not capping and they end up huge which isn't something I'd personally be interested in but like the idea of joining if we know how many our group will cap out at.

Whatever you decide will work out well and I'll make our decision from there.

Thanks!

Yes, I can organize it and anyone else who wants to help please feel free to join in. I absolutely agree we should cap each group. The number I was thinking of was 20 cabins before the next group starts but I am open to suggestions. I guess we can wait to hear from others to see what they think.

Thanks so much!! I happy to help you organize this if you wish.

20 is great too! Our cap last time was 15 but it climbed to 19. 20 is a nice manageable sized group both for making/taking things on board as well as bringing home the extra treats shared!

I just signed our cabin up in the spreadsheet. Looking forward to participating again!
(PS - One thing we found helpful to know with our last group was if there were any allergies in the cabin. Some people give food so avoiding nuts for some cabins is good to know)

You're going to love your first cruise!!! We just returned from our first 2 weeks ago and booked this one while onboard. Doubling the size of our group to introduce more family to the wonders of Disney Cruising!

I just took a quick look at the FE list and it shows your name but somehow didn't keep any other of your information.

I'm new to using this type of spreadsheet too. I guess it's constantly saving in the background so there is no save button. Just wanted to let you know in case you had entered more details that were somehow deleted.

Looking forward to our FE exchange! Last time it was SO fun!! Putting on my thinking cap now to figure out what to make or bring!

Yes, the google doc will automatically save when you close it. Also, if you switch cabins or cruise dates please edit your data on the spreadsheet so that we can find everyone.

I also added a space to put allergies.

FYI, new Disney fanatic, for the FE sign up there's only your dis board name listed, but no other family info. Capping at 20 is good idea. Thanks for adding allergies. On our last cruise there were sensitivities other than food so good place to put that info too.
Went on New Years 2014 Cruise on Dream for our first cruise ever. Was the best! So glad we booked our next one so fast! Looking forward to meeting up with friends on this cruise!

Yay!

So glad I found this thread. We went on our first Disney cruise in January and LOVED it so much we booked this one while on board. We participated in the FE exchange on our last cruise and it was great fun! Looking forward to participating in this one. Thanks for your willingness to organize it! February can't some fast enough now
