    I'm excited. My sister is being stubborn though, but Mom said she had till the end of the month to decide. Ideally we would like to book before then. I am thinking it's going to be the Nov. 11th date.

    Isn't Nov 11th a holiday kids get off from school anyway? Therefore not much would be missed theoretically right?

    No they don't. But what holiday is that? Maybe Veterans day? I think it was my Grandmas b-day too, if I remember right. But I'm sure thats not why it's a holiday. LOL!

    I've been busy with college the past few weeks. I just got caught up and finished reading about your trip.

    I LOVE both of your Dooney bags! James told me no more Dooneys for me until I'm finished with school and bringing in an income again. I really like the tote style bags better than the smaller one. Most of my Dooneys are the tote sizes. One of them my sister calls "Carrie's Suitcase" because it is so heavy and bulky. It was a larger tote style designed to hold a laptop. I have put the white Disney sketch tote on my Christmas list, so let's cross our fingers and hope Santa delivers.

    I really enjoyed reading your trip report and getting to know your family a little better through your journey. I can't wait to catch up with your Phineas and Ferb TR and your AEP TR.

    I was approximately 482 pages behind!

    You don't sound dumb! You sound like a good Mom! :goodvibes

    Also, I was hoping the "better than you" stage would end soon - Henry is in that right now. Ughhhhhh. :headache:

    :rotfl: I love it! So cute!

    Stunning pictures of Illuminations!!!!!!!!!!!! :love:

    I'm so, so, so glad you found your phone. I teared up when you had realized someone very quickly found it in the parking lot and had turned it in right away. I'm so thankful for honest, good people!!

    And good for your Mom for having a "talk" with your Dad. :rotfl:

    :lmao::lmao::lmao: Oh you make me laugh! Sooooo so so funny!


    And of course I am thrilled for you about your family trip on the Dream!!! What staterooms do you have booked? Is everyone doing verandah? :yay:

    Yes, we are all in Verandah rooms. My Aunt and sister and the two cousin families are all in the bigger staterooms with the round tubs, on deck 7 (same deck I had before), about mid ship.
    My parents and I are down towards the aft in the same style room I was in before. I'm in 7656...last time it was 7666, so not far from my old room at all. I could've booked it, but I wanted to adjoin with my parents room and the room that it would connect too had an obstructed verandah.

    I'm late, very late for your trip report :-). Read your trip report over the last two days and just had to say I loved it.

    I absolutely love all your pictures. Your pictures of the Disney Cruise shows were awesome. Mine always come out blurry, my fault for not learning how to use my camera properly but looking at all your awesome photos definitely makes me want to learn how to use my camera better.

    I definitely agree that the Cruella actress on the Dream was awesome, best part of the show.

    thanks for reading!! (I always love your TR too) I do have a current one going on (1st in my signature)

    I have now read we are no longer allowed to take ANY pictures at the shows! Even without using a flash. :scared1: I guess they are enforcing it too. What a bummer.

    Wow, even without a flash, I had no idea. Glad you told me cause I would totally be embarrassed by a CM reprimanding me.

    We are going on the Fantasy MV and I absolutely can't wait. I will definitely write a TR for that trip cause I imagine there will be plenty of stressful stuff to write about. I just haven't decided if I am going to write a pre-trip report or not. I should since I've already finished my FE gifts.

    let me know if you write one. I would love to read it. I just asked my DH today about going on the fantasy in April as they have 2 cruise at GTY rates...and he said no, it's farming season...UGH! :headache: And then he said something really stupid....He said since Claire and I are going on the Dream in Nov. with my family, there was no reason for me to go on 2 cruises in one year....I guess he is part alien! :rolleyes1

    Your husband is definitely part alien. I told my husband I wanted to go on the Dream again in September and he was like not Nassau again and I was like well you can always stay on the ship.:rotfl:

    What does GTY stand for? I know I've seen it before but my brain is completely dead at the moment. Thank goodness it is Friday and my boss is too busy to notice I'm done working for the day.

    :rotfl2: GTY is a guarentee room. You will get a room in that catagory at least, but you might be upgraded to better. You won't be given an actual room assignment till closer to your cruise date. They usually put those out to fill up the ship.
    Maybe he'll change his mind...but i doubt it. He might break down and go on the Dream though.

    Hi jenseib!

    You know, this was the very first trip report I ever read :-) and it got me really into things like this. It even inspired me to want to write my own! So I did! On Cruise Critic Message Boards Forum for my recent Holland America cruise.

    For that, I'd like to thank you. :)

    Thats awesome. I may have to go looking for it.
    Did you read this one here or over on cruise critic? I love reading them and writing them.
