    Thanks for volunteering to lead the FE list. I'm sending you my info now via your email. We did the FE for the first time on the DVC member cruise last month and it was the best!

    We can also talk about a meetup on the first day as we get closer. I would love to meet everyone.

    this will be our 5th disney cruise but first time out of Galveston. we will probably fly down the night before. In Orlando, we normally use a car service to take us to/from the airport and it's actually cheaper.

    Do most folks take the Disney transportation, get dropped off at the port or park? If you have a car service, please let me know.

    We did FE for the first time last month on the DVC cruise and glad we brought a second suitcase to take back all the stuff! We had about 22 cabins participating. It was great fun!

    We are flying in the day before, and using the disney shuttle service. I think we have to go back to the airport that day and get on from there.

    Our last cruise had 26 cabins, so glad I had a extra suitcase to put all the great stuff we got in!

    This will be our 10th DCL cruise and have done the FE on most sailings. Our grandson will love it.
    We will be on the EB Panama Canal cruise in December and we have 72 cabins participating.

    And just like that, things have changed!

    We will not be on this cruise as we found an excellent deal on the EB Panama Canal cruise for 14 days. so if we're taking off two weeks in December, we didn't feel like we should take off a week in January. i was able to transfer the money from the Jan 26 cruise; pay for the 14 day one AND get a refund to use for airfare!

    maybe our paths will cross again on another DIsney cruise.

    all the best!

    we will be on the same cruise with you but just canceled this one b/c of the EBPC. Oh well. At least our paths will cross. Looking forward to it!

    Just booked our trip. This will be our first Disney cruise and I can't wait to see the looks on my kids' faces (age 5 and 2) when they meet their favorite characters.

    Even better is that our friends and family are also coming.

    We are a Disney loving family and this will be our first Disney cruise. We're giving it our DDs 12 & 15 as a Christmas present. My question is this..is the FE something they would enjoy? I'm always looking for fun and unique things to do on our Disney vacations. Also, I've read where some FE groups are really large and include numerous cabins. If I join an FE group, am I required to provide a gift for each person in each cabin or just one per cabin. What are some items you receive? Are they all Disney related? Thanks for helping me sort though all this.

    FE is fun for everyone, lol. My DH and I enjoyed all the crafty and thoughtful stuff we received. You can give separate gifts as well as whole family gifts, its really up to you. On our last cruise we had 26 cabins or so and we kept it as one group. Right now, our FE group is small but may get larger as the cruise gets closer. If the group gets big we can talk about splitting it up, but I dont mind a big group. :) There will be a cut off date to join so everyone has time to get their FE gifts ready.
