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.
