    Last year we did the dolphin experience at Blue Lagoon. We enjoyed that and decided to go back and meet the Sea Lions! We also did the stingrays but it started to storm so they ended early. We even got our money back! So we are doing it again.

    My mom really wants to do the dolphin swim. It looks like it's sold out through DCL, so I'm trying to see if I can book it directly.

    Planning to do the trolley tour and tour the little White House on Key West. I also want to go to the Art museum while we are there.

    Are you talking about the one at Atlantis or the one at Blue Lagoon? Atlantis was much more expensive. But Blue Lagoon had 2 options..the one we did was a 20 minute encounter, which was great. Just enough. The other was swimming with the dolphins. You might want to look into them both..

    I was referring to the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim. That's the one showing sold-out at this time. I'll offer her the Encounter, but I think she was hoping for the Swim.

    Booked 2 rooms on the Disney Wonder for 7 adults of us! We will be celebrating my husband's 2 year Anniversary of Life, he received a double lung transplant August 1, 2008, was near death when the lungs came. The generous donor gift of lungs are from a young adult male that had been in a car accident.

    Room 1
    Andrew (Andy) - my husband
    Tina - myself
    Joyce - my mother-in-law

    Room 2
    Joseph (Joe)- son-in-law 27
    Andreea - our daughter - married to Joe 26
    Kristeena - our daughter 22
    Chelsea - Joe's sister -19

    Will there be an FE activity for the adults, we thought it would be fun to do.

    If we want to do the goodie bags for the kids, time to speak up! We need at least 5 or 6 familes participating for this to work. The more the better though!

    So besides ourselves, who's in? (we have 4 girl's ages 7-13)

    Remember, you don't have to break the bank; just goodie bags with treats inside. Like something you would pass out at a birthday party. Oriental Trading has great stuff for this.

    Sure!!!

    Everyone who wants to participate please send me a PM with either your children's info or the adult's. Basically I need kids name, age, gender and stateroom number.

    For adults, I need name, gender and stateroom number. Once I get everyone's info, I will spreadsheet it and PM it back to you. I will also schedule you a day to pass out the goodies, so we get something each day.

    Thanks for participating everyone!!!:banana::banana:

    Since I am new to this activity. How do we know how many gifts to make or buy and do we drop off gifts every day?

    The gift exchange is off to a great start! We need more kids participating though- So if you are interested, please PM me!!!

    I am getting some ideas on what to put in the adult goodie bag. I will pass that along to everyone.

    Remember, you don't need to spend much money for this. For the kids, just simple things like little candies, stickers, pencils, etc...

    Thanks everyone!!!:banana:

    I'm getting pretty excited! DH and I still not sure what we are going to do in Key West, but hopefully we will figure it out soon! I'm still in shock that I waited till last minute to book a Disney cruise. I must be out of my mind!! The price for a Cat. 12 was excellent, so no complaints! :)

    In one month, I'll be about ready to board the plan to fly down the day before our cruise! Woooo, let the counting down commence!

    Could we get an update on the FE count? I'd like to get started on the gifties.
