    Ladies and gentlemen I give you the 2009 DIS Member Cruise webpages:

    Main Web Page

    Member Photo Gallery


    We (Mark and Mary) are thrilled to be sailing on the 2009 Member cruise with all of you. We've set up the website above as we have for past Member Cruises.

    In addition as in past years we will make gifts of buttons to all the DISers and their families. We do this as a way to identify the DISers to each other. We ask only 3 things: 1) you must be a poster on the DIS. In the past we've had people who just found our site via web searches. 2) we ask for your cabin number for the buttons so we can deliver them if you miss the meet. If you want your cabin posted on the site and in the mini navigator so others can find you great - if you want it kept secret we will do that as well. 3) only ask for a button if you are going to wear it. They do cost money and we would hate to waste the money if you aren't going to wear it.

    Button Sign-up is now closed!

    The Logo

    Btw, permission IS given to grab the logo below for your own siggie. That's why it's there. :thumbsup2 Thanks to Time4disneynow/Monika for the original artwork :)


    If you've never done that before, here's some easy instructions!

    Highlight the following line, right click and select copy:

    Click on UserCP above.
    Click on Edit Signature.
    Right click and paste, select Done :)

    DIS MEETS

    As noted on the website we have two DIS meets set up. These are based on past Member Cruises and what has worked well. Of course it is up to the group as a whole so if someone has another idea for time/place for the DIS meets let us know. Also if anyone is staying out by the Port Saturday night by all means set up a DIS meet there. We've done that before and it is great fun.

    The First DIS Meet - Pre-cruise:




    Saturday, September 12th 3PM Eastern time


    The Solarium in the Beach Club





    This is an optional meet for anyone who comes down early, if you get there, cool, but just as cool if your first meet is onboard the ship!

    The Second DIS Meet - Sailing Day:




    Onboard the Wonder Sunday, September 13th 3pm


    Promenade Lounge

    [​IMG]




    And this is probably going to be the more common DIS meet. Everyone should be able to get to this one ok. We can try for some kind of group shot if everyone is game. This meet is a great way for everyone to know each other before sailaway.



    What you can do!

    That's what we've taken on, but there are many other things you can do to help make this cruise great.

    First and foremost become a regular poster. As we all get to know each other is where the fun comes in.

    Linked dining - on past cruises someone took up the job of linking the DIS group in dining. This could be one person willing to do it for both seatings or two people (one for early and one for late). We can put you in contact with who has done it in the past to find out how. Update - Flo is handling this! Linked dining is now closed!


    Fish extenders - organizing the exchange of little gifts between DISers. Update - Flo is organizing this! Fish extender gift sign-up is now closed!

    Pirates/Swans - a little game we play on the thread based on each 99th post and each 100th post. Update: Gary (OKWMEMBER) who gave us the game on the 2008 thread has volunteered to be the pirate master this year as well even though he isn't sailing with us. Thanks Gary.



    Pirates and Swans:

    Pirate postings - on the last Member cruise thread Gary OKWMember came up with the pirate game where each 100th post got a pirate (and later we added each 99th post got an Elizabeth Swan). We even gave prizes away at the onboard DIS meet. Gary has volunteered to be Pirate Master again even though he isn't sailing with us. We'll have a prize for the DISer with the most pirates and the most swans at the onboard DIS meet.

    Hijacking your thread for a moment. Is anyone going to the port early? We're get off the ship that morning and wanted to see our member friends before you sail away.

    Amanda and Annette

    ps if Annette has already asked this sorry

    Hi Amanda (and tell Annette Hi as well). We're staying over on Disney property and will be going to Mass and breakfast before heading over to the port so won't be over that early.

    Enjoy your cruise!

    Yes I did. But boy was it hot there today. We were quite surprised that it wasn't as crowded as we thought it would be for being a holiday weekend.

    I keep telling my girls they need to watch this next week cuz we will be on it. The oldest says, why, it's not like we can see you. And I say just because we will be on it!

    So, I doubt if they will but I will know someone out there is watching it. Even if I don't know them.

    Well, thanks for thinking of us. EPCOT is my favorite park. Glad it wasn't as crowded for you. Hopefully next week after the cruise it won't be that busy either! :rotfl:

    Mmmmmm, I'm wondering if I need to get a Gray Goose and a Grand Marnier just to do some research on which one is best.

    Hi everyone! I made it over to the 4th thread!
    I hope that everyone had a good time at the sail away party. I just got home a little while ago. It was such a nice day hear that I decided to spend the day out with my sister Patty and my niece. We spent the afternoon at the agricultural fair that we grew up going to. It was beautiful out, very sunny and not too hot. We had a great time. Then we stopped to visit our mother for a little while.

    I can't wait for next Sunday! I plan on packing tomorrow so that I'll be ready and can just put everything in the car when I get home from work on Wednesday. My plan is to leave my house at about 4:30 AM on Thursday so that I can get to Sandi's house at about 6 AM.
