    Hi there,

    This is our second Disney Cruise, we did the 4night Bahamian last October and cried when we had to leave the ship.

    We are from Sydney Australia, so getting to FL is not an easy feat. 15hours to LAX and then more flying from there, but totally worth it.

    This time I am cruising with DH, DS (9) and my parents. This is my parents first ever cruise and I am hoping they will love it as much as we did.

    Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

    I think I need to update my sig with our new trip details ;)

    Cheers

    Welcome Angela, my husband just came home from Sydney last week. His company has an office over there. The flight is long, but I'm guessing for a Disney cruise it is worth it.

    ******* ROLL CALL & FE EXCHANGE - NEW FORM********* OCT 4, 2013

    We've put together an all encompassing form to include Roll Call AND FE Exchange

    If you're interested in sharing contact information with other dis'ers/facebookers on the cruise.

    o Registration Form http://goo.gl/HU5kWV

    Please use the Registration Form to share or update your details, and to indicate whether you'd like to participate in the Fish Extender Exchange. Once you submit the form, in a day or so, you will have view rights to the roll call spreadsheet....You may also request output from the Roll Call anytime by emailing robinpgma@gmail.com. If you do not hear from me granting you access to the spreadsheet please email me.

    FE EXCHANGE

    As the sail date approaches, we'll close the FE list membership so people can get their shopping and crafting done. We will have multiple lists with membership of 10-15 staterooms each. Decisions about list size will be made about 2 months before we sail, and while we will accept new participants until shortly before sail-away day, you'll make Robin's day by signing up sooner rather than later!

    This roll call with also help us in setting a meet & greet time and decimating information if needed.

    See you all on boardÂ….

    Robin & Jessica

    My wife and I just booked this cruise for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration. We are super pumped! This will be our second Disney Cruise and our longest cruise ever.

    Has anyone done any of these ports of call before? What are some of your favorite excursions?

    Hi there! My Dh (Glen), DS (Xavier, 7) and I are booked for this cruise for our honeymoon (only 10 years too late!) and we are ridiculously excited! We're from Melbourne, Australia, and we'll be taking our first overseas trip since DS was born, and our first trip to the US! I can't wait for the cruise, but I'm not looking forward to the 22 hours on a plane to get Orlando! After the cruise we're off to our first visit to Disneyland in Anaheim. 2014 is a year of firsts for us! I look forward to getting to know some people we'll be spending the cruise with :)

    So I worked out all of my excursions this weekend, and here is our plan:

    Grand Caymon: Deluxe Stingray city sandbar snorking
    Costa maya: Nothing but shopping
    Cozumel: Off Road to Jade Caverns
    Castaway Cay: Jet Ski and Snorkling

    Im thinking about Palo brunch on our first sea day and palo dinner on the Costa Maya day....

    Anyone else have their plans together yet?

    WOW this has crept up on me. We are able to do our online check in on 26 Jan which is this Sunday. I haven't even thought about it. Agh!! I need to get planning and see what my family wants to do.

    I really want a Cabana on Castaway Cay, hoping with my 90day check in I might be able to book one. We got one last time and loved it. We didn't do any excursions at CC as we just enjoy relaxing in the sun and swimming.

    Can anyone recommend excursions for the other ports?

    Cheers

    I can't believe how quickly time has passed since I booked this cruise.

    In just over 2 hours I can do online check-in and book my excursions. Has definitely snuck up on me. I feel so unorganised.

    Is anyone else doing 90 day check in? (we are Silver CC). Will be interested to see if we can get a cabana, but I am hearing that even those checking in at 120 days have had no success.

    Off to check out the FE thread.

    Cheers
    Angela

    Please bare with me....
    Fantasy April 26, W. Caribbean
    Just downloaded the discussion app and trying to figure out how to join in on all the festivities.
    We are first time DCL cruisers. I'd love to be part of the Fish Extenders group but the only link I see (page one of this discussion) says I do not have access to the file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
