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!
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

I was hoping to do something involving snorkeling at Puerto Rico but we met a guy from there who basically convinced my husband that we must see as much of the area as possible.
I am sure we will tour St.Maarten. DS and I likely won't get to snorkel there. I will continue to research and obsess. It's not like I already searched for gluten free food in St.Maarten, you know like two months ago... of course not - that would be crazy! #canthideyourDISside!

Elmo2200 did you happen to find any gf foods on St Maarten? DD and DS are gluten intolerant.

Yes, by reading trip reports, travel books and searching the internet. I used copy and paste to put the info in a word doc so I can take it with me. It has 8 restaurants so far. The document notes what kind of GF food the restaurant has, if it is cash only, if it is open for lunch, what part of the city it is in, etc. I haven't done San Juan yet. After all my careful research DH will probably have me just wing it at an unknown restaurant. What can you do?

First Time Cruise Family

Hi everyone! I'm so happy I found this thread. My DH and I have been married 21 years and are parents to 3 girls ages 6, 8, and 9. The Jan. 3, 2015 Fantasy will be my family's first cruise. I'm so excited but also overwhelmed with making sure I don't miss anything or mess up any plans from FEs to port excursions, on-board activities (my girls are dying to do Bippity Boppity Boutique, it's the whole reason we chose Fantasy!), pirate night costumes, etc. I'm new to DIS, new to DCL, new to all these acronyms and plan to spend the next 6+ months absorbing as much as possible from you more experienced travelers. Thanks for sharing all your info!

Hope everyone is enjoying doing well!
We have one more major trip coming up very soon then hopefully I will go back to cruise mode! I seem to have chilled out now that we've done a few. I haven't worked on FEs in a long time. I hope to get back to sewing. I was focused on a quilt that should be finished up to binding tomorrow.
Dreaming of cruise food! Must have 4 course dinners!!!!

Introductions

Hi All!

We are a family of 5 (DH - BigAWL, DD13, DD11, and DD8(on the cruise). We booked this cruise on our Med cruise two weeks ago as a surprise for our girls. So shhhhhhhhh don't tell them!!!! I'm going to try and keep it a secret until Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's! We bought DCL t-shirts on our cruise and pins and we're planning to put them in a big box as a surprise present Christmas morning.

Look forward to getting to know everyone!

Joann

Hi all,

Just put a deposit down on my first DCL cruise!

We are Disneyland annual pass holders, and have been to Aulani twice (so awesome!)...and while we are Diamond members on RCCL, we've never been on a Disney cruise.

Our little group consists of DH & me, DS(6), and Grandma! We will have connecting cabins, and DS is excited to be with Grandma next door. We are excited about that too :-)

I'm not on FB, so not sure I can participate in the whole FE thing (and I also don't know much about it).

But we are excited about the trip!
