    I have been getting a lot of requests for information about hosting a Champagne Girls event. So I thought I would post it here for everyone to share.

    There’s two ways you can do this.....having DCL organize it for you OR organize it yourself, but you have to buy DCL champagne. I organized it myself, but the maiden voyage of the Fantasy had a CG tasting also but they let DCL organize it.

    I request a room onboard about a month before sailing.

    Here's my contact at DCL:

    David.T.Gadson
    Group Services & Sales Manager
    Disney Cruise Line
    Phone: 407 566-7043
    Fax: 407 566-7739
    David.T.Gadson@disney.com

    DCL made a new rule, no money can exchange hands onboard. So I had to ask everyone to pay in advance. They sent me checks and used paypal. It helped offset the total cost somewhat, but I still paid for a good portion of the bill. I also provide pink feather boas and pink feathered tiaras so everyone can match. Everyone must wear pink. Then we take a group picture.

    When I get onboard, I meet with someone that David told me to contact in Food and Beverages and order my champagne for the event. I request a sommelier to discuss the champagnes that we’re drinking. I ask for tables to be set up for check in. I give everyone a name badge and ask them to take a boa and tiara.

    If you want DCL to pick the champagne and have a sommelier discuss the champagnes......they will ask for a list of all the ladies and their SR #s. They will charge each person $20 on their KTTW card.

    A third choice would be If you all choose to bring your own champagne, DCL will charge you a corking fee of $20 per bottle.

    It’s entirely up to you as to how you want to organize it. Everyone who does one, does it differently. This was my 4th time doing it and it has been different each time. Others have done them their own way on other cruises that I was not on.

    I hope this helps get you started. Pick a way that you want to do yours and have fun with it. That’s the whole point of it.

    Calling all Champagne Girls anyone who wants to do so may copy the CG's logos in my signature. Add them to your signature if you'd like because now you're officially a CG too!!! CHAMPAGNE GIRLS RULE!!!!

    I LOVE it Holly. You'll see how much more fun bubbly parties can be when you're wearing all pink with boas and tiaras. Have a blast and post pictures on here.

    ......Maybe me and/or a few of the originals will book your cruise and join you in your party. It sounds like too much fun to resist. hahaha!!!:rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Wow I am amazed by this and that I have never heard of it before - champagne, pink and cruising all at once!

    Also wanted to say hello to Scrappy and thank you again for helping me out last year with the LGMH's :wave2:

    Looking forward to hearing more about the Champagne Girls and seeing more photos.

    It's so fab that this is still going strong....and ever growing! All ladies deserve to be princesses.... And champagne girls!

    Deb, can you believe it was five years ago we first discussed this and came up with the idea? We must have helped the champagne industry on our own ;)

    Look what we started Angel....who knew it would grow like this?

    Ladies, me and UKANGEL dreamed up this whole idea while chatting on the DIS one morning five years ago while sipping coffee and wishing it was champagne......it snowballed from there.

    We have helped DCL make a lot of money off of our idea too, Angel. We should get a commission. hahaha.

    I think it would be so cool too. But I can't book another cruise until after I move. We're moving to be near the mouse in just 7 more months. After we relocate, then we'll book our next cruise and I will keep this one in mind. It could work out nicely.

    A very dear friend of Angel's and mine did the Pretty in Pink logo.....Angel, it was Kaz who designed that one for us.

    Another friend did the PINK TINK logo.....Angel, that was PJ.

    Feel free to use them, the more I see ladies showing them on the DIS the more thrilled Angel and I get.

    Back then we didn't even have boas yet....just tiaras. But almost everyone wore pink. Who knew then what it would become today. And who knows where it's going. Very cool.

    I am finally back on the boards after a crazy few months - we have moved from Scotland to England and I am now teaching here so still getting settled in and getting used to how things work down here!

    I see you have a couple of tickers, food and wine looks fantastic :goodvibes

    No popping of questions over here, if we keep booking Disney trips like this I doubt we will ever get married :lmao: Off on the Dream for Christmas, I am too excited for words! Will be looking out to see if there are any Champagne Girls on my cruise.

    Original Champagne Girls - I salute you!
