    Cool Pic! Does Magic have a water slide like this? If so, what is the age / height requirement?

    I'm so sorry for your losses... :( I hope you're able to relax on the cruise and enjoy some peace and some fun!





    Welcome!! DS will be excited there's another his age -- he'll be turning 17 the day after the cruise. Last time we were on the Magic he was only just turning 12, so he's way excited to get to experience the teen club this time!





    I always just tell DCL or my TA, and the beds have always been apart when we get there, no problem!

    Welcome purplepaula! My Mom will be cruising with us as well and I know a couple of others on the board will also have their moms. It would be great for all the Mom’s to get together.

    Elmo2200 – Thank you for the pool picture. When I saw that all I could do was picture my kids swimming there while I relaxed watching them. What a feeling!

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of your DH’s Grandpa and your Grandpa, Stephanne. I can relate as I lost my Dad last August. Having the cruise and the FEE to look forward to has really helped me get through my loss. Hang in there and I wish your family comfort at this difficult time. Sending you all hugs. :hug:

    FEE Update - The 4th FEE group will close on the 22nd of January. This will be the last group. If you want to be in that group please contact me before that date. Thank you.

    So sorry for your losses. :sad1: My family will be praying for you and your loved ones during this difficult time.

    Natalie - This IS the Magic (or the Wonder, they look the same) so the kids can swim/slide here in 29 days!! The slide is for kids ages 4-14 with a minimum height of 38" and maximum 64". The Mickey Pool is the Kid pool and is only 2-feet deep, which makes it perfect for the little ones. The water is very warm due to the shallowness (and...well...let's not think of why else a kiddie pool would be warm, shall we? :scratchin) so even the little ones like it. Plus, it's usually less crowded than the family pool in the middle of the ship (mainly b/c the adults can't really "swim" in this one).

    Oh the kids will love this! :love: For some reason I thought that there was only water slides on the newer ships!

    Thanks,

    I can't speak for the Magic, as we have not been on her yet, but I'm pretty sure the Mickey slide on the Wonder ends in the Mickey pool. It is not next -to-it-but-separate, like the one in the picture.

    On our Wonder cruise, there were plenty of parents in the Mickey pool, most with their little ones, but some not. In fact, when we first got on the ship there was on couple in the Mickey pool that seemed to think they were on the Love Boat. :scared1: Definitely was not a "family friendly" scene. :sad2:

    So sorry for your loss :hug: I've lost both of my parents and grandparents over the years, so I can definitely relate to the sadness. It really does help to get busy with something, so I'm sure that getting ready for the cruise will just be the answer.

    I'm sitting here at work, listening to Island Time radio on Live365, daydreaming about the cruise and completely blissed out. I can smell the coconut rum from here.... :cloud9:

    Fatfish..We had similar experience at Coronado hotel at DW...MUCH worse though..there was a college spring break party at pool and hot tub...some had to get carried away in wheel chairs. I was once on an NCL cruise like that as well. NCL took appropriate measures to resolve our unhappiness...When I wrote a letter to Disney they said sorry and that was all. :-( I still love Disney though.
    Hopefully this cruise will be free if these shenanigans. haha

    I pointed the couple out to several cast members, but they did nothing. I honestly think they did not know what to do. So, I got in the pool while dd went down the Mickey slide. I ran back and forth across the pool splashing and yelling to dd. I did my best to make the pool as unromantic as possible. Luckily, other ppassengers were joining us at the pool at the time, and were equally rambunctious. It didn't take long after that for the couple to leave. ;)

    Stephanne- I am so sorry for your losses! :hug:

    The slide pic is Wonder. The new "Aquaduck" water slide is only on Dream and Fantasy. The slides on Wonder and Magic are geared to young children. I will try to find another cool ship pic to post later when I have more time.

    Hi all:

    Has anyone else seen this thread?

    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3046725

    Don't want to alarm anyone, but anyone travelling via their own air the last day of the cruise might want to check that their trip insurance covers "missed connections". :)

    We're not affected because we fly out the next day.

    Holy moly! That is a thread full of cranky people! I dread reading the posts from people who were delayed getting ON the ship! I'm definitely glad we heard about this. DH and I have already planned extra activities to do with our girls should we be delayed on departure day. we're fortunate to be driving so wont have to worry about rebooking anything. One thing is for sure, there would've been three missing passengers for a 10:30pm safety drill! They would've had to come hunt us down in our beds! ;)

    This makes me think of that sailing several years ago that couldn't sail into PC because of a hurricane. They came to Galveston to stock up on supplies but no one was allowed to get off the ship due to customs issues. They ended up extending their cruise by several days. Is it wrong that I would consider that a good thing?!?!

    Pic-of-the-day!!! I'm surprised no one else has jumped in yet. The other cruise meets I've done have always done a count down with daily photos to drive us mad with anticipation... Please feel free to share your Disney pics!
