So, now we're staying at AKL at the beginning of the week, and doing this cruise to close out our vacation.

We haven't been on a Disney cruise since the Magic in 1998!

We're just two adults, and we're night owls, so for the PP who wanted adults to hang out with at night, you've got 'em right here!

I don't think we can do the FE thing because we're staying concierge level, and apparently the concierge hallway is gated so no one can get to our room. I'm kind of bummed, though I'm not a crafty person at all, so I doubt anyone would have wanted whatever I came up with, anyway.

Even though I can't do the FEs, if anyone organizes anything else - a disboards get together, or a cabin crawl, or whatever - I'd be up for that for sure.

To the PP in colorado, i hope things are getting back to normal there. We have good friends who live in colorado springs and they are all ok but have other friends who lost their entire houses, cars, etc.
Even if you're staying concierge I believe you can participate in the FE if you want to. I've read on other threads where people have delivered FE gifts with the room # listed on the gift to the CM in concierge & they'll put it in their room.

I'm the poster from Colorado. For most of us things are getting back to normal. There's still a lot of clean up & many volunteers helping families to sift through the rubble & helping to clear out the mess. Much help & provisions are available for those who lost homes.

My friend Wendy & I will be akv in concierge level Oct 19-22 maybe we can meet up before the cruise?

Halloween - anybody?!

Hi again! This will be the 3rd year that I have sailed on DCL during Halloween - and just in case anybody was wondering, they DO have some activities on the ship! The characters all dress up in costume (Minnie dresses as a witch, Donald dresses as a vampire, etc), there is trick-or-treating for the kids and there is an adults-only costume contest! We already have our costumes planned - just saying!

Hi there, It is Gabriella's 8th birthday ~ celebrating Disney style.... lol
It will be my husbands first Cruise.
If someone is up in the Concierge floor, I've got a way to get in - so if they are in the group, I'm good with that!
So excited, 99 days!!! It seems so far, yet it will be here before we know it.

Lastly, as there seem to be a few 'girlie' groups, how do people feel about alcohol being a part of the gift exchange? Just wanting to know so I can figure out my FE gifts..... I'm an early planner - sorry, just want to get a game plan together

Does this mean there is no pirate party?

I agree, I welcome all concierge-floor-fe-participants!

Also, I know my group (5538 and 5540) will be perfectly happy with alcohol

They do pirate party one night, Halloween another night! At least that is what they have done for the last 2 years.

Disney Parks Blog just announced that DCL is officially making the Dream the Halloween ship this year! all the cruises will have some activities, but the Dream will have exclusive Halloween programs and surprises! Go check out the Disney Parks Blog for more info, it looks even more awesome than it has been in the past!

Also, some people use pirate gear for both nights, as it will apply all around

Small World indeed. When we cruise, which isn't normally often, we rarely know of any other Coloradoans onboard. With 3 gals from Colorado in you're group just how large is the group you're sailing with?

Hi again, fellow Oct Dream cruisers!

Can anyone give me a quick FE/ Exchange lesson? I get that people decorate their door and I think I get the FE that hang next to the door, but other than that, I don't really get it! We have 3 families/cabins on our cruise (2 with little kids) and we'd like to take part, but not sure exactly how.

Thanks!

Hi! I am so glad that you want to join! My name is Molly and I am compiling the FE list for our cruise : Here are the basic guidelines:

1. Each cabin that is participating in the exchange will hang a "fish extender" next to their door during their cruise. (You can either make or buy your fish extender - a lot of people sell them on ebay and etsy)

2. Each cabin that is participating will prepare a small gift for the other participants in the exchange group. The gifts may be homemade or store-bought, anything that you would like to give! Some examples of gifts we have received are magnets, stickers, small bottles of alcohol, keychains, picture frames, bracelets etc. ***You can either give a gift for each cabin, or a gift to each individual person, the choice is up to you!

3. At some point during the cruise, you will deliver the gifts you prepared to the other participants in the group. I will have a list of everybody's cabin number posted here before the cruise and I will also bring copies of the cabins to the group meet-up on the first day.

That's pretty much it! If you would like to participate, let me know the names of each person participating, the cabin they will be in, their ages and if they are male of female and I will add you to the list! And if you have anymore questions, please feel free to ask!

PS its so cool that you guys are taking such a big family group on this trip! I love it!
