I so agree - we are just looking forward to being away and able to relax with no e-mail, no phones, etc. We're planning on spending a lot of time on our veranda reading and relaxing.

Actually someone on today's sailing posted first night's menu is Let The Magic Begin - so that may be the 5th menu...

While the reviews from the 2 night were disappointing to read, I am hoping that the 5 night that left today has better luck. Regardless I still cannot wait to be on board with a drink of the day in hand!

Kids are still clueless, they think we are going with hubby on business trip to Miami and staying the weekend. I can't wait to see their faces when we tell them that we are doing the cruise instead - almost as excited for that as I am to board the ship.

I heard the two night sailing wasn't a full ship. If people didn't have hot water/working toilets, wouldn't they have asked to switch rooms? The first thing I'm doing when I get in our stateroom is checking the hot water, the toilet, and the A/C. All three have to be in working order or they will be finding me a new room! All the other cosmetic annoyances that were posted about on the boards aren't going to bother me in the slightest. The service, food, entertainment, public areas, kids clubs are all stellar from what I've heard. So as long as I've got a comfy bed and the three necessities listed above - I'm good!

I will be accompanied by DH, DS-6,DS-2 and my grandmother

This will be our first ever Disney cruise; and the first EVER cruise for the kids and my grandmother.
I know its late to participate in the FE, but I'd love to be included for a meetup, if there is one!
We are planning to meet at Promenade Lounge at 3 pm on embarkation day to put faces with names. Or DIS names anyway.

I can't remember if I preferred one restaurant over any other on the dream last year....and I know animators only does a show the first time you go there...so is it worth using that as our twice just for the atmosphere?

Just wondering your opinions...
As others have said, they will not repeat a menu. It will be something different.

Yes, yes! We are by far the wisest cruisers on the high seas!

We are at AKL. Our son, who works for DVC and is sailing with us Friday, got ill today at EPCOT while we were trying to be nice to him and buy him lunch during his break. He had some sort of episode, unknown origin, but they have ruled out heart - which is way good!! - but are keeping him overnight because he still was not feeling right. So, prayers if you got 'em! He will be SO sad if he has to miss this cruise!! Hopefully they will have him back on his feet tomorrow.
