We did a FB page for our cruise last year and it was very successful and convenient. Not everyone joined, but a lot of us did. We kept it closed and only accepted those who had joined our DIS meet through the DISBOARDS. A lot of us ended up being "friends" through regular FB after the cruise.

I live in Florida. It has it's up and downs. The summers are miserable, I love our winters,traffic is great in the smaller cities, and Disney is only two hours from me!

Welcome!

FB DIS page. I've been on cruises where both FB and DIS were used and I found that it really complicated things. Discussions on FB would not get repeated on DIS and vise versa. People missed out on things because of that and some were disappointed. It was very time consuming for me to check DIS and FB (reading several discussions on that) to try and keep up on a busy thread. Having a DIS group on the DIS just seems so simple to me. I learned not to agree to coordinate anything where there are two sources you have to check for participation.

Diesel - A small world indeed! I grew up in Sarasota and have been here in North Port for 12 years now. I know exactly where the Frosted Mug is. It's still there! Where do you live now?

I saw some people posted bdays, and stuff like that will be happening on the cruise, so I figured I would mentioned our 14th anniversary will be on the 6th, the last day. ;-)
This will be our 5th cruise with disney. We love the magic and cant wait to see the upgrades. The kids are really looking forward to test the new water slides.

Congratulations! Our anniversary is Oct 6. It will be number 46 this year. We will be cruising on our anniversary next year - Oct 4 Southern Caribbean.
We love the Magic also and are excited to see the upgrades. Hope She does not lose the feel.
