    Hi We will be sailing with you on this cruise.
    There are 4 of us, myself, DW and DD9, DS11.
    Were on the Magic in the Med 2010 and planned for it again out of NY this August but had to switch.
    Really looking forward to getting on the Fantasy and the kids can't wait to ride the Aquaduck and explore CC.

    Oh you are going to LOVE it! We've been on five (although our last one was six years ago, so we are excited to go back!) and loved them all. My husband and I did a three day as part of our honeymoon and got addicted. It is great because they really do keep kids out of the Adult only areas, so you can choose to be around kiddies, or not. :)

    Can I add you to our first post to start a list?

    Hi there! Can I add you all to the first post?

    How was the Med cruise? When we were going to switch our cruise, I found that the Transatlantic next May is actually $1,000 dollars cheaper than this cruise, but sadly our daughter won't be out of school until mid-June and I just can't take her out for two weeks. :) Not to mention, as my husband pointed out, flying back from Spain will eat that $1000 savings really quickly. :rotfl:

    Hi shmoogrrrl, of course you can add us to the first post.
    The Med Cruise was amazing, shame DCL are not there this year and now my wife has always wanted to do a Med Cruise Including Venice - 2013 Magic is doing that itinerary and its a 12 night, however the cost is extremely high.

    Having just watched the float out of the Fantasy, we simply cannot switch as the kids have their hearts set on the Fantasy now (then again, so do we!)
    We are going to look at doing a week at WDW first then relax on board - Lots of planning to do!

    Ohh...I am going to have to go find the float out. My daughter would enjoy seeing that. She is really excited about the AquaDuck. Me too, if I am being honest. On our other cruises, I've always wished that I could use the Mickey slide. :)

    We will probably spend a day or two at Disney beforehand. We also want to visit the Kennedy Space Center while we are there.

    I am actually heading to WDW in 21 days with two of my girlfriends. We are taking a Mom trip to run the Princess Half Marathon. We are only going to visit Epcot and Magic Kingdom only. I am looking forward to the trip, but boy will I be happy when the race is over. :)

    On April 17 2012 I changed our DISboards ID to gosshaus

    Hi!
    It's been a long while since I've used DisBoards so please excuse me if my post isn't done right. Our first Disney Cruise was in Dec 2005 on Magic. We will (finally) be going on our second cruise on Aug 17 2013 - Fantasy. We booked a Cat 7a on deck 9. Joining me will be my DH and two kids (S14 and D11 at sailing.). Looking forward to all the fun planning!

    Of course you can add us to the first post! I am looking forward to learning as much as I can before we sail. We booked a Cat 6B room; so excited to have a verandah! I am headed to WDW in mid-March, but that will have to hold me over until the cruise!

    Hello! Welcome to our cruise! We've been on five cruises, but our last was in October of 2005, so it has been as long as you all! We are so looking forward to it!

    Our daughter will be 11 on the cruise as well. Glad to see more kids her age!

    Hi everyone - Thanks for starting this board! I actually booked our cruise in the fall as soon as the itineraries opened up, but I wasn't quite sure how to start a cruise meet link - I've been waiting for someone else to do it! This is our third Disney cruise. We went on the Dream in August 2011 and had a great time, so I decided to book while we were on board. One of my favorite memories of being on the Dream is when my children and I skipped the formal dinner and just hung out by the pool. My son and I went on the aquaduck several times with no line - it was a great time!

    I'll be traveling with my son (age 13 at time of cruise) and daughter (age 11 at time of cruise). We're really looking forward to it and looking forward to some new ports of call.

    I'm trying not to think about this trip too much yet, since it's so far away. I probably won't start thinking about it until we get past summer 2012. I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone over the next 18 months!

    Andrea

    We are going to have a lot of 11 year olds! Excellent for my daughter who hasn't been on a cruise without friends coming with us with built in friends. :) We are also neighbors. Well, sort of. We live in Centreville, VA. :)

    Can I add you to the front list?

    Yes, please add us to the list! And yes, I saw that we aren't too far from each other, although with traffic the way it is, it can seem like forever to get around the area. Thanks again for getting this started!

    Hi Everyone,

    My DD has asked me to join us into this thread, so here goes...

    There are 4 of us, Me, DW, DD (14 at sailing) and my DM. This cruise is number 7 for us and is the first part of a B2B. We are in 2 connecting cat 6A.

    DD is hoping to find some other girls her age to email before we go so they can go as a group to the Teen club. Her screen name is UltimateDisneyFan, so if you see that name, she's with me!
