Also if anyone wants to link up dining with us, you are more than welcome. I would like to get a group if possible before I call in. We are on the late dining. I have one so far. If anyone else is interested let me know!!
Just highlighting this for you so that folks who might be interested don't overlook it. We are early or we for sure would take you up on it!

The tour we are doing to the ruins is really pretty inexpensive and we really enjoyed the one out of Costa Maya.

My family will be on the Magic on November 1st. This is our third time sailing on a Disney ship, (Dec 2009, Nov 2011 and Nov 2013). My parents and brother along with his family will be joining also. We are a group of 11, (6 adults and 5 kids ranging from 9 to 14 years old.) My kids are looking forward to seeing the new Avenger Academy in the kids club, so we are decorating our door in an Avenger's theme. We are doing a family FE group, but I also plan on bringing items to randomly put in other FE. This will encourage my kids to walk the floors with me and check out the other decorated doors. This is my first time making a FE and giving gifts, any tips?

3rd time Disney cruisers also! Room # 7094

Hello, We are also cruising on Nove 1st (Magic) out of Miami. This is also our third cruise and first time participating in the FE. Can you tell me what is your room # and I will make sure to have my little one drop by. I am not really sure how to officially sign up for the FE so I figure I will just leave random gifts. Happy cruising

So it looks like you are traveling the furthest so far...anyone further?

What about closest? I know there are some from Tampa area. I'm from south Sarasota area - about 3-1/2 hour drive from Miami.

Our grandson is coming from Portland, OR. That is further west than us, but we are further north, so not sure which is further.

We are driving from Patrick AFB, (Cocoa Beach area). Map quest says it will be just over 3 hour drive. We usually leave from Port Canaveral, (20 minute drive), but we couldn't pass up the Military rate.

Whoo Hooo!

So I'm a first time Disney cruiser and this will be my family's (hubby and twin 5yr old boys) first time on a ship too! We happened to book the cruise last minute since we couldn't pass up the wonderful military discount!

We happened to find this board because I mentioned cruising to a friend and she said "You need an FE!" So anyway, we have an FE and no other idea about hidden gems and need to knows. Besides trolling this board, is there anything else I should read, know, discover before our departure in just a little over 30 days?
