    Hi Everyone,

    We are booked on this cruise, my DS, DM and I, along with my niece and her DD.....we're waiting for the rest of the family members to pick up the phone & get booked.

    This will be cruise #2 for me and DS.....we went in September of 2004....during Hurricane Jeanne.... :umbrella: We went on the 7-night Western as well but missed most of the ports. Hopefully, this one will go off without a hitch.

    I'm looking forward to reading more about our cruise.

    Hi Lxnm2 !!!
    I started this thread some weeks ago, so we are very pleased to hear you!!! We, that's me, my DW and DD of 13 now. And also for us it wil be cruise # 2. We did the Mediterranean Cruise last year, but that one was a little bit in our "backyard". We live in Belgium, Europe, and that's about a 2 hours flight to Barcelona where the cruise started... and it was a great, unforgetable Cruise!
    I'm sure that we will have a wonderful time next year, without hurricanes !!!
    :thumbsup2

    Just booked this cruise for our honeymoon!! I'm so excited!! Neither of us have ever done a cruise before but are Disney vets (well, I am and Dfi has quickly become a HUGE WDW fan, thank god, or else I don't think the wedding would be happening...J/K!!).

    I have been trying to do as much research on this cruise as possible but I feel like there is still so much that I need to know. I have so many questions. But I just ordered the lasted planning video and pre-ordered the latest passporter, so hopefully by the time the cruise comes around, I'll be an old pro!

    Here's to the next 16 months of planning! :thumbsup2

    P.S. DLRPfan.be ~ I see you go to DLP often. This was originally our idea for our honeymoon but we decided on the cruise instead!

    Hi Nikki, and Dfi !

    Welcome to the thread! Less then 500 days 'till we're on the Magic! Nice to hear that you are WDW addicts: for us it's DLRParis: We live about 2 1/2 hours from there. And congratulations with your choice of doing the cruise instead of DLRParis: You can't compare the two things, a Disneycruise is so much more! Let's say that the parks in Paris are the "smaller" versions of WDW. And when you're in Europe, you can go there for a couple of days.
    But now we're countin' off for a great cruise: and that's already half the fun!:woohoo:

    Hello fellow cruisers !
    We reserved our next cruise for the 7/25/09 Western !
    Reserved just in time before the fuel surcharge went into effect. :)
    My family consists of me, DH, DD that will be 21 and DS that will be 10 at cruise time. Going with another family of 5. We all cruised back in 2006-Eastern/Magic Spring Break, so it's been a while. Looking forward to doing the Western cruise this time.
    DD tells me 423 days from today til the big day !
    We ALL can't wait!
    Looking forward to meeting fellow cruisers on here before the trip !

    Hello,

    I can't believe I am not the first one here. I guess I should have known better. DLRP, I think you were on our cruise last summer to the Med. Unless we happened to meet another couple from Belgium. I was having a serious case of the vacation blues, remembering the wonderful time we had last year, so yesterday we booked for 2009. We used our 2008 and some of our 2009 DVC points to pay for it.

    I will be traveling with DS 9 and DH....

    Let the countdown continue.

    Greetings to our Australian Sailors,,,

    This will be our Third Disney cruise. We just love it! We went to Disney World this past spring but decided that we had to take another cruise, we much prefer it.

    Let me know if you have questions..

    Hello fellow cruisers!!!

    We've been booked for months, but I just now got around to popping in.

    My DH, myself, the 12 year old daughter and another wonderful couple will be on the boat with you!! If anyone has a girl of similar age who might want a sailing buddy, let me know.

    This is our 2nd cruise. The first one was the 3 night voyage on the Wonder, but that was like eating one M&M out of the bag. It was too short, and I spent wayyyyy too much time running around like a constipated weiner dog, trying to do everything on the boat. I think the 7 night cruise will be much more relaxing.

    Hi Lisa (ljseay),
    Welcome to the thread, and also for us it's our 2nd cruise. Our daughter will be just 14 when we get on board... And she's learning English very fast for the moment so she can speak it with Your daughter to... (we live in Belgium, Europe) Lookin' forward to meet you all!

    Hi Bluefire! Also welcome to the thread, and nice to hear that people from the other side off the world (for us) are also sailing with us! And just be sure of it: you will have the times off your life aboard!

    Hello Bluefire! I see you are also celebrating your birthday during the cruise, my husband (the26) and my daughter (the30th), what a way to celebrate, we are taking my mom and my teenage son he is 16 and not very sure but willing to try, he didn't go in the first one but I am sure he'll love it, he has no problems making friends, the youth program councelor told us that by July there is about 200 teens in the ship, so I bet they'll have a blast!

    The cabins are not at the Lodge, they are Fort Wilderness Resort and Camground. I have never stayed there before but we are thinking about doing it next year when we got with my sister and her then 15 month old. Seems useful to have a whole cabin with enough sleeping space for all of us and a kitchen for any needs with the baby. If it's just the two of you, I don't know if the cabin is that necessary but then again I've never stayed there so I don't know. I'd stay at the WL if I were yoU! We'll be there before the cruise toO!
