Hi...we will be on this cruise as well. It will be a first time Disney Cruise and the first time on a cruise for our ds (10) and dd (8). Just sent request to join Facebook group and we definitely want to participate in the FE exchange.

Count us in!

This will be our second cruise - first with our kids (boys 6 and 4 at time of sailing). My Mother in Law and her friend will be with us too in adjoining rooms. I have requested to join the Facebook Group and haven't heard, so I created a second group specific to FE.

October 18, 2014 Eastern Caribbean Fantasy Fish Extender Group

Happy to make anyone and admin that is interested.

Looking forward to counting down with you all!
Katie

I just made myself an admin on the FB group that had been created originally (October 18, 2014 Disney Fantasy) and approved all the pending Join requests.

Probably easiest to keep to a single group.

Hi everyone,

Looks like we will be joining you. This will be our 3rd cruise, this will be a repeat of our Oct 20, 2012 Sandy Cruise. It was a great vacation (even with Sandy) but we missed out on doing a few things in St Maarten since we opted for a tour our first time there. This time we are going to rent a car and tour the island on our own. We plan to spend lots of time on Maho Beach watching the airplanes and playing in the water.

We were originally scheduled to go on the Oct 20 Magic Cruise this year but had to postpone it once we found out we were expecting after our 2012 Fantasy Cruise, baby was 2 weeks to young to cruise. After many hours debating we opted to go back to the Fantasy and go concierge with our Sandy Discount.

We will be traveling with our 11 yo daughter and our baby girl will be 14 months at cruise time. We would like to join the FE but we are still looking into whether we will be able to participate in a concierge room. We have done it the past 2 cruises and we loved it!

Either way we are looking forward to getting to know everyone!

We just booked for this sailing. We were on the Fantasy this past Halloween with 4 of our 5 kids and booked a dummy date which we just switched to this one. The difference is we are going KID FREE! My dh Nate and I have cruised this time of year for the past 5 years but every other year we go with out the kids. The kid free cruise has always been Carnival until now. We have been on the magic twice on both the Western and Eastern and the last time we did the Western on the Fantasy. We felt that we didn't get to do as much last time as my one ds didn't care for the clubs which meant we missed out on all the adult stuff. This has helped reduce the guilt factor of cruising Disney without them. After 3 Disney cruises we have never seen Serenity Bay... I'm gonna get to see it finally!!! We have friends joining us who we met on a Carnival cruise in 2012 and they came with us last October on the Fantasy. It didn't take a whole lot of convincing to do Disney instead of Carnival. I am SO excited for this cruise!

What a coinky-dink! I was recently looking for Fantasy trip reports (since I haven't been on the ship before) and read your last one!

Oh cool! Well I hope you liked it. I'm hoping to finish my last submission in the next day or so. It's just not as exciting getting off the ship and not many pics either so no one's gonna wanna read it anyway.... it's too depressing.

We are going on this cruise. We have never been on a Disney Cruise!! My daughter will be 11. She is a only child. I worry she will not like going to the kid activities by herself. I can use any and all the hints on all the stuff to do on the ship. Will they do anything because it is so close to Halloween? October 18-25 2014 also the 18th is my birthday. Do they do anything for birthdays? Thanks for the help.

Welcome Kristajoy and to the Disboards! I wouldn't worry too much if your daughter doesn't like the clubs. My younger boys did not love the clubs the first time around and that was ok because there is so much to do with them. If she is going to try it I would encourage her to go the first night because that's when groups seem to form. Also there is usually a meet and greet on the first day among this group and the facebook group so maybe she could meet someone there to hang out with at the club. As far as Halloween I would think that they will have a party since it is the last Eastern cruise before Halloween. I know on our cruise in 2011 they had a Halloween party which was the cruise before Halloween. For birthdays you can have it noted on your reservation that it's your birthday and let your servers know on the day and they will bring out a special birthday desert and they will sing to you. You can also order a cake for an extra cost.

Hi everyone, I thought I would post this here just in case there are people here that are not on the fb group. I am organizing a cabin crawl and wanted to make sure no one misses out on the opportunity to participate. Here is the explanation I have posted on fb.

Hey everyone, Looking for interested hosts and players for a cabin crawl. This is how it works.... We need 7 people willing to host and show their cabins. Hosts will need to provide a deck of cards that they will spread out on the bed for players to take. Hosts can provide little treats or shots for the players but this is optional. All participants pay $5.00 to play. We will meet at Vista Cafe at 3:00 on the Monday to sign in. We travel as a group from cabin to cabin taking a card at each one. Each host will be given a clip board with the participants names and will record which card everyone gets. The last 2 cabins are optional discard cabins. We then meet at Waves bar and the person with the best poker hand wins. If you are interested in playing just edit this doc to add your name and if you are willing to host put "host" beside your name.

Here's a post from my trip report showing our last cabin crawl.
http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...9&postcount=88

If you want to play just let me know and I will edit the doc on fb for you.

Also on fb we are talking about the meet and greet and making it a "sweet meet". People can bring sweets from their area to share with everyone at the meet and greet. Bringing sweets is not mandatory to participate as those participating in the fe might find it difficult with luggage weight restrictions. It just adds a little something to the meet.

So Sorry I didn't pay attention to which cruise this was posted in on Facebook before responding. I'm not going on the 18 October cruise, we are on the 11 October cruise. We won't be participating in the crawl after all.
