Hello!

Myself and my boyfriend are booked for this cruise as well! I'll be turning 25 on October 12!

However, I'm considering switching to the Sep 29 sailing... (or if I get really bold... asking DBF to do a back to back! Hahaha!)

We'll see how this pans out. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone too!

Linda

As of this moment I am booked on this cruise but I will likely move it to a 2013 date if they are still sailing out of Galveston for Spring Break 2013.

How wonderful,my kids were worried because I told them since it's not a school break, there may not be many kids their age on board.This will be our first cruise ever,then my oldest and I are booked on the Thanksgiving DCL cruise for her 18th b-day.Not exactly B2B ,but it should be fun either way!Your kids are going to flip out when they realize they are going on the Disney boat!.
Trying to figure out what excursions to take,anyone got any plans with that yet so far?Since we have never been on a cruise they are all new to us!Wonder if it's too cold to swim with dolphins?So much to plan,glad we have plenty of time,lol.

so excited! i'm just a crazy as the kids for this surprise!

we plan to do alot of snorkle and beach bits. we did dolphin swim in Nov 2008 withthe kids in PV, Mexico so it's not too cold at all. We leave snow and cold so plus temperatures are exciting! My DH and i are doing the carnival magic in november of this year and will be going to 2 of the 3 ports so we plan to sniff out the places and see what's fun!

i've done shore trips with and without the help of the cruise line. i'd hold off on booking but research you idea tons and then go to trip advisor and read what they say. i've been blessed to never have a bad trip yet!

The water was nice and warm in the carribean in Feb/Mar this year and that was after winter had a chance to cool it. I'd imgine that early Oct we should see nice warm water temps.

Excited about this cruise

My husband and I will be in one room, my daughter and two granddaughters, who will be 6 and 4 in another room, and my best friend and her son in a third room. This will be our fifth Disney cruise, and I am so happy we will be sailing out of Galveston, but a little disappointed no castaway cay. I love checking the boards and see who else has joined the group. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Best to all
Mal

Thanks Shera - you and your girls will LOVE the Disney Cruise, there is nothing else like it. The only draw-back is it is addicting. What are your girls most excited about? Don't forget to tell them about FREE room service. There is an icecream self-serve by one of the pools, of course hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken strips, french fries, and pizza almost any time day or night. Can you tell I am a little obsessed with food.
