    Just don't bring up the dreaded knitting! Hide it! Keep it in your room! Yarn is bad and should be punished.


    Ok. I'm done. I think.

    I don't knit, but I may start for my next cruise. It would be easier than setting up the sewing machine. Would it be inappropriate to also yell, "You kids get off my lawn...er, pool deck!"?

    I've only ever had problems with loud (drunk?) adults in "Quiet" Cove. One time it was some very LOUD people who communicated across the length of the deck instead of walking over. I was trying to nap, silly me. And they spoke Spanish, so I couldn't even eavesdrop on their apparently urgent conversation.

    But I totally get wanting some adult time. Other people's kids aren't as cute as their parents think they are (or as cute as mine), so why shouldn't there be adult-only areas, even on a Disney ship?

    Disney is NOT just for kids. DH and I vacationed at Disney for a few years before we had our son.
    WE LOVE CHILDREN...that's why we volunteer w/Boy Scouts, Youth Ministries, and we our son's sports.

    However, Disney understands that there are adults that love Disney Vacations or adults that may want to have some "romantic" or "adult time" while their children are in their clubs. Disney does all they can to accommodate everyone.

    My first Disney Cruise I was divorced with my 5yr son...I did not want to spend one minute away from him...after all it was OUR vacation together. However, he refused to leave the kid's club...so I went to the adult's pool twice and read my book and on one evening I went to the night club...yes alone...but not really alone...CM were always with me keeping me company.

    You should totally take up knitting. I started out sewing then moved to embroidery but both of those hobbies tied me to a machine. I love that I can take my knitting with me wherever I go. Great hobby and it isn't just for old people anymore!

    This always comes up. You want adult only areas, you must hate kids, what are you doing on a Disney ship. Where did anyone say they wanted a whole adults only cruise? They just want the DESIGNATED BY DISNEY adults only areas to stay adults only. DCL can just un-designate them if they feel they shouldn't be adults only areas.

    goes both ways, too. I've also seen parents take their kids into a bar and then be outraged that there are adults in the bar acting like adults in a bar. So really there isn't anything wrong with bringing your kids into a bar, as long as you don't spend a bunch of time complaining that there are ADULTS in here and they're DRINKING.

    Nope you are wrong! I have been on five Disney cruises, 2 of which were just me and DH :cool1:!!

    There are adult areas for a reason, and they should be respected as such. Just because it is Disney doesn't mean it has to do with kids. Kids aren't supposed to be in certain areas, and not many either. The parents that don't respect those rules are wrong. They don't belong in the bars or the adult pool.

    Adults are allowed to have fun without their kids too!!

    Well if you're on the Fantasy as of next Saturday, you just might see me knitting up on deck. Knitting is good for your brain. Who knows, I might bring some hand spinning too

    My mom spent a good bit of time up at Satellite Falls knitting she loved it up there... Even if she couldn't escape us "kids" you know her 27 yr old daughters and her 30 yr old son in law who booked the trip then invited their parents.

    On a 5-night cruise out of NYC on the Magic, a couple brought both of their school-aged children into the Cove cafe. The dad seemed to be making some kind of point (he loudly proclaimed "Ok, let's go kids" after they had finished their snacks. No one said a word to him or his wife while I was there, but I don't know if anyone had said anything before I got there. I just chuckled to myself, as I imagined a scene about 5 years in the future, when these parents are having trouble garnering respect from their teenagers, but they snootily retort to them, "Well, why should we follow your rules, when you don't follow any?" Sometimes, Karma takes too long.....

    Disney is good about the adults only areas but it puzzles us that when we leave from the 11th deck for example we have to leave through the adult area with our kids. Just like the cabanas thing, strange to have to go through a restaurant to get to/from an elevator. Seems like this could have been avoided with a little more planning on a multi-hundred million dollar ship. Also the Fantasy changes when compared to the dream are pretty much all improvements except the small wading pool that overlooks the adult area on deck 12, seems like that should have been adult only also but it is a family area.

    Is there an elevator to the satellite falls area or just stairs?

    We usually use the stairs, but I thought that the forward elevators go to deck 13 and then you are in a little alcove then you can exit onto the deck from there, go past the concierge sundeck and you are in the falls.
