Howdy y'all!

Do you guys mind if we join in? We just transferred our booking to this sailing! We had been booked on the last week of August 2014 to Alaska but decided for a variety of reasons to take an upgrade in staterooms and swap to this sailing. Save the Alaska trip for when the kids are slightly older.
We've never sailed on the Fantasy or the Dream, so that's a big change.
Do we have a facebook group for this cruise, or are we keeping all communications on disboards?
Anyway, excited to start the countdown for this cruise!

Right now we only have this thread as I understand it. I think a facebook group would be a good idea as well.

I know you weren't asking me, but I've cruised a three night over the last of September beginning of October, Thanksgiving week, February and April with an upcoming January before this one.
Very first cruise- September/October2010-some rough seas the first night leaving Port Canaveral (leftovers from a tropical depression). DH thought it was funny to watch me walk down the halls in (very) high heels swaying all over the place. We both figured out we weren't prone to seasickness. Nassau-beautiful weather in the morning, late afternoon thunderstorm. Castaway Cay- nice warm water, perfect temperature to layout at Serenity Bay.
Second cruise-Thanksgiving week-warm/nice for sailaway party, pretty nice the rest of the week, chilly on the last afternoon and cold on debarkation. Wish I'd packed the kids sweaters.
Third cruise-February nice/cool for sailaway chilly half of first and half of last day. Very warm in Cozumel.
April-hot for sailaway, cold water at Castaway Cay, but really warm air. Torrential downpours/warm in Key West. Pleasant for debarkation.
Really, I'm not that concerned about the weather anymore than I would be if I'm staying home (Houston area, so we do the hurricane preparedness thing).
I think October is nice as the kids have had a month or so to settle into school, the water will probably be warm and we book our flights/etc. through Disney and get trip insurance just in case.

Is anyone on this cruise interested in FEs?


As for the facebook group, I've set one up here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/224180931063179/
or search Facebook for "October 18, 2014 Disney Fantasy" and I'll add you to the group.

I would like to join this group...we just finished the Alaska cruise on the Wonder and booked this cruise for next year. Really looking forward to a Halloween themed cruise. Was excited to read the things Disney plans for the October cruises this year and hope they continue it next year.

I am willing to run the FE list if no one else once to do it. We love doing FEs.

Cruising on this trip currently are:

Me
DH (Andy)
DD (Skylar, 12 on cruise)
Celebrating our 20th Anniversary
Will probably change our reservation to a Cat 4E, but currently we are in an inside stateroom

We are also trying to get my parents and my mother-in-law to join us.

Cindy

Welcome!!! I'd be glad to be on a cruise where I'm not coordinating the FE :lol
Should be fun! Sign us up and all that. Room is 9674 (hanging quite literally off the aft of the ship). DD will be 5, DS will be 8.

Oh and so far our Facebook group is me and DH.
So if anyone wants to join...that'd be awesome!!!

Yeah! I feel like our group is finally getting off and started.

Dopey- That would be awesome if you did the FE. We are in room 6512. It'll be me and my 2 sons, 15 & 9 at time of sailing. Thanks!

hopefully we will have more people getting involved in this forum than my last cruise. We only had about 11 families and 8 on the FEs.

I created a website for the last two cruises we went on. It listed everyone that wanted to be listed and had an FE page. It also included information specific to the cruise, the ship, and the ports of call. As we get closer to the cruise I will start creating a page for it also. When I get it started and almost completed I will post a link here in the forum.

That's so neat! Was your last cruise on the classic ships or the dream class? Our most recent was on the Magic, and our next is on the Wonder and we've always had over 100 people, over 20 rooms and had to split the FE list into two or more groups. Interesting that that doesn't always happen, don't you think?
The website idea sounds like a lot of fun.
Do y'all have any cruise buddies coming? I've got a family friend we met on our first cruise in 2010 thinking about this cruise and another friend from early college who's maybe adding this cruise (she's been on our cruise last February with us, so there's that she loves and she's joining us in January, but being Texan, she's not sure she can swing childcare or airfare for a longer cruise from a more distant port.)
Have any of y'all sailed on the Fantasy before?
