    I'm in Southern Cali, not too far from Disneyland! Glad to hear there are more Cali people! We'll be escaping the heat for a week!

    Thanks for sending the info, I'll go look for it right now! It's been over a year since using these forums and I'm trying to reaquaint myself with it! LOL! I may be asking some silly questions!

    As a fellow teacher, you should know that the only silly question is the one you don't ask! ;) I teach third grade here outside Philly and will gladly spend the next six months telling you how I have the best class ever this year. I taught middle school for five years, and the move to elementary wasn't my choice two years ago...but this little crew of 22 I have this year are changing everything.

    We are headed to Disneyland for the first time this spring break after many WDW trips! I cannot wait to see the California parks. We're going with another couple (my best friend from college and his wife, who took our last DCL cruise with us in 2011, as well) and have lots of surprises planned - the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour, dinner at the Chef's Counter at Napa Rose, the character breakfast at the Plaza Inn. (Who needs kids to have breakfast with Minnie? :) Any chance you have a Club 33 connection? :P

    I don't have a Club 33 connection, unfortunately!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a great class this year, too! They are so nice! It's so refreshing when that happens! I've had some rough ones, but this is the nicest in a long time! I'm glad you do, too :-)

    Congrats on your decision! I'm a teacher, it's a great mom job! I just joined this board when we finally booked the cruise the other day! I noticed in your signature you have a 7 yr. old as well, my daughter is 7 (will be, by cruise time that is!) Happy New Year, I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!!

    My son will be 7 cruise time, too. He's an only child. My husband is an elementary physical education teacher and my Mom is a high school teacher.

    Awesome! Nice they're the same age! My daughter loves making friends :-)

    Cool about them being teachers, too! My dad taught high school for 30-some years before retiring!

    We are going to Vancouver a couple of days ahead, the 29th, to enjoy a little bit before the cruise. I hear you! I can't wait either! Too exciting! As for excursions, we'll go for family friendly as well, they all look great, it will be hard to decide! Can't book them quite yet so we have a little while to figure it out!

    I think the pajama party sounds fun!!!! Refresh my memory, as I've only been on the Wonder one other time, what does MDR stand for? :rotfl:

    We need to get some warm clothing for Alaska badly!! We don't own the stuff since we live in So Cal and don't need much of it! I'm figuring on getting the layers that go underneath clothes, but will probably all need warmer jackets than we currently own, too! :eek:

    MDR = Main Dining Room. Probably Triton's, although I think the restaurant with a sit-down breakfast may change day-to-day. I'll look more into this once everyone's excursion/spa/Palo booking window opens so we can figure out a day that works well for everyone.

    Planning for the weather is tricky, even here in the frigid northeast :P I think my new North Face fleece will work nicely, especially with a rain shell to go over it. I'm trying to plan out clothing like I did on our trips to San Fran and wine country - layers, layers, layers, that can be easily put on or taken off.

    Hi we will be joining you for this cruise - Lynne, Ivor, Emily who will be 12 at time of cruise and Jonathan 9 years. We,re from Scotland and this will be our 7th cruise , last one being Hawaii in October.

    Can't wait - think the weather will be somewhat like Scotland by all accounts

    Looking to sign up for fe as well -on last cruise we did a postcard exchange which was real fun and didn't take up much room in luggage. Got lots of at cards from different places.

    If there's any help needed organising anything just give me a shout

    Welcome, Lynne and family! I'm sending you everything you need.

    Feel free to help us silly Americans out with preparing for the weather! Right now all we know is wear layers and prepare for rain :)

    OK West Coasters...I have to get excited about something here because I don't think I have any other pals who will understand why I'm excited!

    I just finished planning out day-by-day my Disneyland plans for March on the phone with the other couple we're visiting with...and, since our trip is less than 90 days away, I made reservations for the four of us at the chef's counter at Napa Rose!

    :cheer2::cheer2::banana::cheer2::cheer2:

    Our pals will be semi-celebrating their first anniversary on our trip...so I noted that on the reservation but am not telling them :)

    Would be happy to share all the other details if anyone cares ;) We have a LOT of fun stuff planned, as this will be all of our first visits to DLR after many, many collective trips to WDW. (Two of us grew up going to Florida constantly, one is from Florida...and one is my husband. He's kind of a late bloomer.)

    Welcome Lynne!
    I will definitely need help with knowing what to wear for the climate, as I'm a California girl, I'm clueless about the cold! I'm already planning for the FE! My daughter and I had so much fun on the last cruise being little elves :rotfl:

    Duly noted! Hopefully we will have some time on our arrival day to explore DTD...we might also go on departure day for an hour or two after leaving the parks.

    I don't think the DTD in Disney World has that store - what makes it so unique? I confess that the World of Disney store in Florida sends me into hysterical fits of happiness....as does the Christmas store...as does the toy store...

    The Vault has an edgier, hip type of Disneyana. Mostly female clothing and accessories but some interesting knock knacks as well. I have to admit that I'll occasionally run into the store to check it out.
