First family cruise

Looking forward to our first Disney cruise. It is also a Christmas surprise for our 3 boys. Heard lots of great things about the fish extenders

Cruise Meet Fantasy Jan 3, 2015

Elmo- LOVE your countdown calendar. We did our first FE on our last cruise and no one was as creative as you! This will be our (my DD19 & me) 6th cruise but first time on the Fantasy. Have sailed on all the other ships and so far the Dream is our fave. Really looking forward to it.

I have put in a request to join the FB page- my name is Mary Beth, but it hasn't been accepted yet.

It is just my personal preference. I love the DIS!
I use both platforms, and one thing I like about the FB is that then I remember people's actual names, LOL! But in all honesty in all my cruise meets threads, the ones pre-FB had better participation, and we got to know each other a lot better. We aren't cruising with family or friends this time around so I'm hoping to get to know a lot of great DISers!

Mary Beth - Thanks! I got the countdown idea from Pinterest and just customized it. It is super simple. My DD is also 19 and has asked if there are others her age. She will be happy.

Silly Little Pixie- You said, "But in all honesty in all my cruise meets threads, the ones pre-FB had better participation, and we got to know each other a lot better."
I totally agree!

My FEs are going very slowly!! Last time I also got halfway through sewing FEs and told myself I would not do it again. Well guess what!? Yep, I'm sewing again! Worse, hand sewing. But it so cute so hopefully I will keep going. Anyone else working on FEs?

Hi everyone!

Been subscribed to this thread for sometime now and just getting around to posting.

We are booked on the Jan 3 2015 Fantasy cruise!

Traveling with a large group of friends and family...as we are getting married at Castaway Cay!

This is everyone's first Disney cruise...though many have cruised before.
Perfect fit for us since we always all travel together (majority of people are from Australia)

Can't wait!

Congratulations!! How exciting!

We will be celebrating our 20th anniversary, a month early ... But it's the only way to get all 4 kids away without them missing a lot of school.

Please remove my family from the FE list...

Happy Easter Disney cruisers!
Our family has booked a vacation at AKL for January and won't be cruising this year, we'll be trying out the parks for the first time

Congratulations Sailorswhyf on your anniversary and Orion2185 on your upcoming marriage, and happy sailing one and all!

How exciting! My DH and I renewed our vows on Castaway Cay in 2009. It was an amazing experience!! It was so beautiful. You must be so excited!

Thank you!

Excited but Praying for good weather.
The more we read about cruising in January..the more we read the weather is very windy and cold
Allot of times ship can not even dock at castaway due to high winds.
It's out of our control...but hoping it all works out.


Excited that we will be having allot of people cruise with us...and have this 7 day extended celebration.

Then future bride and I are off to our first visit to WDW -post cruise

Watching the countdown clock....days are passing so slowly.
Then once we are On the ship...everything's going to move faster than lighting.

Hello All,
Just joined the FE Group.
Hoping we can get regular updates on numbers participating so we have a general idea on gift quantities needed. I would like to start working on it now rather than leaving it till after the closing date.

Has anyone made any port excursion plans yet? Nothing is really popping out at me at the moment. Open to suggestions from past cruisers.

Many thanks
