    Disneywwjrb are from Aiken, South Carolina. Another southern mom, and I'm excited about the creativity running around on these posts. We went to Disney last week and my teenaged boys wore stuffed Stitch hats every day. You never got to old to flaunt your love for Disney, it seems!:crazy:

    Hi Cruisers!

    I know I haven't been waiting for this trip as long as many of you ... but I'm giddy with excitement about this latest milestone!

    To celebrate ... I've found this image (it has been used before) but thought it was a good one for us to use to help identify each other during our DISmeet onboard, as well as helping those participating in the FE exchange?! I was thinking everyone could download the image ... then use it as they'd prefer: a) Make stickers to wear that first day, once we are on board and meeting together, or if you're so inclined, make a t-shirt?! b) make a magnet for our cabin doors ... especially helpful for FE participants? I've figured out how to personalize these graphics on my own ... so I could work in the next 60 days, to add names for each family, even individual names, whatever you want!

    Let me know what y'all think!? Have a happy Wednesday!
    Lisa

    I love the logo, very cute! On past cruises we have worn lime green leis to identify all the people for the meet. We have usually met in the lounge area since there never seemed to be a whole slew of people there. Can't wait to meet you all :).

    Very cute, Lisa! I like it!

    You could also make it into a button to wear as well. I know I've seen some inexpensive button making kits at craft stores before.

    I'm so ready for this trip! My FIL has decided to join us for the cruise. My DH asked him casually one day when he was on the phone with him and he decided to jump aboard. He booked the lowest inside stateroom category since it's just him in the stateroom, so he's got a GTY. I'm having fun checking it every day to see if his room has been assigned.

    I placed my order for bows this week, so I can't wait to see how those turn out!

    I may have talked my DH into leaving a little earlier than we planned, so we may be able to have dinner in Port Canaveral. It all depends on how my DD is doing in school at that time and if her teacher is okay with her missing a day.

    Thanks Liz! A button is a great idea too ... anything to make it easy for everyone to be able to create at home! Again, I could add names, and home town, even DISname?! So we can match up familiar names to faces!!

    Always fun to have grandparents along! My parents came from AZ for our WDW vacations when my kids were little ... wanted the kids to have that memory with them! My dad passed away a year ago, but he would have NEVER stepped foot on a ship! Maybe I'll be able to talk my mom into coming one day!?

    Unfortunately we won't be leaving until school gets out on Friday ... it wouldn't be a problem for us, but our friend's daughter just can't miss her last class (perfect attendance will get her extra points on her final grade ... hard to intentionally pass that up!) I'm a little worried about the traffic heading south at the later time, but nothing else we can do! We have hotel reservations at the Country Inn and Suites. They have a Cruise Package, includes breakfast plus parking for the week of your cruise WITH a shuttle service to and from the port terminal! We discovered it in 2008 and it's a great deal!


    Jennifer, I LOVE the idea of the lime green leis!! I'm new to this DISboard experience, so I definitely don't need to reinvent what is already known to work! I had mentioned to meet up on deck for our initial get together, because of the sheer number of people (I guess not everyone comes?), but having never been on the Fantasy, I'm definitely not familiar with ANYthing?! My thoughts were that if we were up on deck, and folks were still visiting, they wouldn't miss the sail away party, or the views of the port as we head out?! Anyone who knows better than I do ... please share your wisdom!!

    Mallory and I are looking forward to meeting everyone too!

    When we were on the Dream, we held the DisBoards meet in D Lounge. I assume there is one on the Fantasy? It's on Deck 3. We had the whole place to ourselves since the entertainment hadn't started yet in there, and very few people even walked by :). We met at 3pm and visited for about 20-30 minutes, then left to get ready for the lifeboat drill.

    Same thing on the Wonder. We have met in the Promenade Lounge and we had our own private meeting area :).

    I love the idea of lime green leis! It's something light and easy to squish into luggage, which is a plus for those of us flying in. I also LOVE the logo you designed, Lisa. I think it would make a great sticker or shirt, for those so inclined. :)

    I, as a first time Disney cruiser, have no idea where to recommend. I am just going to be a follower on this cruise. :cool1:

    I think this makes a great door magnet!

    Duh on me! Totally forgot about the safety drill when I posted that earlier! No one will be able to hang around for too long! I've only been on the Magic twice, and they had lines out the doors of Rockin' Bar D; folks signing up for Palo. Guess I assumed other lounge areas were also being used?! I'm up for anywhere! (and have to keep reminding myself there's still time! It's not next week ... yet!)

    I would love to take credit for that design ... but it is NOT mine! I found it hidden in some obscure post from about three years ago (can you tell how I'm spending my free time lately?!) I thought it was perfect too, and you can see that Sammy has already personalized his!

    I read that book cover to cover when you posted it the other day! Where was all this information when we took our first cruise in 2008?!! Thanks for sharing it with us!

    I agree! Personalized exactly how I imagined!

    I love it! I think magnets would be awesome for each door. Easy to spot when handling out FE.

    One more day until the FE list closes! :cool1:

    I still have not received any response from Katie81.. at this point I am assuming she is no longer on this cruise or does not want to participate.

    I still need cabin numbers from:

    disneywwjrb

    lsenquiz

    OrcaPorkka

    JulieA



    Please send them to me when you receive them.

    We are getting close! :yay:

    I wish I could give you a stateroom number! Still waiting for it...

    Definitely getting excited to start making/procuring the FE's. I have some ideas but I wanted to wait until the list closed!

    Alright cruise mates, on the East Coast, the FE list is officially closed. :scared1: Therefore; hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go. :woohoo:

    Is there anyone else on the list that we haven't heard from recently?

    I'm so excited, I feel like I'm going to burst!!!:banana: My husband thinks I've lost my mind!!

    The FE list will be updated and final Sunday afternoon (with the exception of cabin numbers for those who are still waiting for them)
    I will update the cabin numbers as they come in.
    Your day to pass out your gifts will also be assigned. :cool1:
    The last night will not be a pass out day, I think we will all be busy packing. :(
