    I am going on my first DisneyDream Cruise December 15-19 2014. My DF and I will be getting married on board in Nassau. I am a 40 something bride that will be taking all my kids and grand kids. I am also going to get involved in the FE if I can find someone out there that is taking the same cruise as us. We are from Cortland Illinois right outside of DeKalb

    I used to visit family in that area when I was a kid. We would stop in Fairfield to visit my great aunt and uncle, and then go to Flora to my grandpa's. Every time we went to visit, I would come home with a southern accent that would stick with me for weeks! My first grade teacher was so confused when my mom went in for a conference and she didn't have my accent, she ended up making me go to speech class!

    We aren't brave enough to make the drive, but if airfare keeps going up at this rate we might have to do it eventually. 16 hours doesn't really sound too bad. I think part of the reason DH loves Disney so much is that there's no driving involved. He somtimes drives 4-6 hours a day for work, so it's the last thing he wants to do on vacation.

    Thank you so much Kendal...I am so excited. I have 13 Adults and 7 kids going on the cruise also. I heard so many good things about the Disney Cruises. I am getting prepared to book another after this one :yay:

    I am so looking for people that are going on the same cruise. I want to get involved in the FE for the kids.

    This is very strange, but I have ties to so many of you. I grew up in Sandwich which is not far from Cortland. I lived in Fairfield for 6 years and know Wayne City and Flora very well. AND, I currently live in Bloomington! We are going on the Alaskan Cruise leaving Monday, July 15th! I can hardly wait. This is our 4th Disney Cruise and our 1st to Alaska. I LOVE the Disney cruises as do my daughters, ages 14 and 11. I hope you all have a great time also!

    Leaving real soon! I hope you have so much fun. I went to Alaska but not on a cruise (this one is my 1st). Alaska is beautiful. I went in the winter time which was beautiful I can just imagine how it will be in the summer. Have fun and I want to see pictures :)

    Hmm, is your daughter going to be freshman at BHS by any chance? Because mine is! They're probably friends on FB!

    We are contemplating booking an Alaskan cruise for next August for DH's 40th while onboard in Jan. You'll have to tell me how you like it. Trying to decide if we should take the kids on that one or leave them at home. My oldest will be nearly 18 by then so I'd be ok leaving them home with grandparents nearby, but if she ends up loving Vibe she might want to come with!

    Nevermind, I just looked at your user name and figured out who you are. Duh, I just talked to you the other morning and you told me you were getting ready to leave on vacation! Just didn't know you were a DISer or where you were going on vacation! I'll be sure to ask you about the cruise when you get back;)
