    YOU ROCK! These deck lists are fabulous! Thank you! (And Yes! You are most definitely apart of the chart-crazy, list-maker, binder-loving, organizational club! :) )

    Dizneeat, thanks for the deck lists, WOW! I do appreciate how much time and effort you have put into this.

    I wanted to share with you all my small world story: As I was looking at the FE list, I noticed that mkmouse25's friends had the same names as the family of a high school friend with whom I had lost touch for several years. Because of your FE list, I have now reconnected with her! Our families plan to get together soon, and we are thrilled that not only will we be together on the cruise, we're even on the same deck!

    I am glad the list is helpful to you! Thanks! :goodvibes

    Thank you!
    Working with 14/15 year olds I take your niece's praise as a HUGE compliment. :thumbsup2


    Michaela, this list is for FE participants only. Not everyone reads the chit chat on here and it would be really confusing if we just added random non participants to the list. ;)

    What we have done with upgrades is that the one who receives an upgrade will drop a short note into the FE of everyone in his/her group OR and that is my preferred method, just call the staterooms from your in room phone/wave phone and leave a message. In the 10 cruises we have had we only had 2 people being upgraded, so this is just a back up for me. ;)

    So, you have blown the surprise? ;) :lmao:
    But even if it isn't a surprise everyone will LOVE being on the ship. :thumbsup2

    Unfortunately sign up for the FE was closed June 30th.


    Glad you like the list! :goodvibes

    I guess when it comes to lists, the teacher in me gets the better of me. :rotfl2:
    Can't wait for the DISmeet!

    Boy, do I need this vacation. :rotfl2:
    I was just looking up our excursions and got totally stressed, because the ones I found were so totally different. Until I realized ....... I was looking up the wrong cruise. :lmao: :lmao:

    Okay, so here ARE our excursions:
    Grand Cayman: Grand Cayman Island Tour
    Costa Maya: Chacchoben Mayan Ruins - Adult Only Departure
    Cozumel: Cozumel Highlights and Mayan Ruins

    Yikes, we are going to look at a lot of ruins. Oh well, I am old myself, so it kind of fits. :rotfl2:

    We are doing the ruins tour in Cozumel and my DH, DS7, and DS6 are doing a dolphin encounter in Grand Cayman while DD3 and I stay on the boat. She has an appointment for Bippity Boppity Boo salon during the dolphin encounter. Fun!

    Just a tiny vent... we are traveling with friends of ours. It is their first DCL. If I have to listen to them complain one more time about the dress code for dinners, I'm going to snap. Suck it up and throw on a pair of pants. What's the big deal about looking nice? :confused3

    I love dressing up so I can't understand people who complain ( I am still tring to decide what dresses not to bring). My rule with my kids is that they at least wear a pair of jeans and shirt to dinner on regular nights and at least a collared shirt on more formal ones. Will your friends dress for pirate night at least?

    Never too old to be a princess!!! Didn't know there was an age limit!!! My daughter ( turning 13 on cruise) thinks I will make an appointment for her!
    We are sailing/snorkeling in grand cayman and swimming with the dolphins in Cozumel.
    This is our first cruise. Looking forward to a great time. DD can't wait to meet other kids and go to edge.

    Don't get me started......we did our 1st Disney Cruise over 10 years ago and were amazed at how wonderful everyone looked. Now I am saddened/annoyed that some guest turn up at the restaurants in the evening in beach wear whilst rest of us are in our evening finery and Disney don't bat an eyelid :furious:

    I see the DCL as top of the cruises, so magical pixiedust: (sorry, really wanted to use the magic icon :blush: ) Disney do lay on the Cabana's, Topsider buffets & burger/pizza bars so beach wear should be strictly restricted to there and leave us super fabulous people to dress up and party :banana: in the restaurants :lovestruc

    Just heard from Disney about the Mixology group. It will be on the second sea day, August 22, at the Skyline lounge. They are going to break us in to 2 groups because there are so many of us. This means everyone gets to choose what time slot they want (I wish I was more organized for this). Anyone who has signed up or wants to sign up let me know if you want the 2-3 slot or the 4-5 slot.

    That warms my heart 1stdiscruise - how fun for you!

    Linkandclover - we'd like to be in the 2 to 3pm group if possible.

    Zwerch - We've gone a little adventure crazy. . .
    Grand Cayman = Shipwreck Snuba
    Costa Maya = Chaccohoben Mayan Ruins (this is at the request of our newly minted 9 year old - I plan to wither of heatstroke.)
    Cozumel = Secret River and Playa Del Carmen

    I'm going to have to power relax on sea days to make up for all this!

    (I also see that my quote skills are not up to disneeats level. darn it!)
