    We will be onboard! We are just off the NYE Fantasy cruise and can't wait to cruise on the Fantasy again! We just loved the ship, and are excited to go to a new port- San Juan!

    I'm hoping for better weather next January than we had this year. We got to see a lot of the inside of the ship, lol.

    I am very excited about the FE - I didn't know about DISboards in time to sign up for this past cruise. Has anyone stepped up to organize it yet? If not, I would be happy to do it :thumbsup2

    No one has officially stepped up to head FE. I was debating doing it.

    I've organized the FE many times. I can do it, or help.

    Hello fellow cruisers, I am so happy to see others as excited as I am for January 2015! Our fist Disney cruise was on the Wonder in 2012, then the Fantasy for a Western in 2013... We cannot wait to get back aboard! Traveling will be myself (30 something mom) DD 8 and DS who is 10 ( at least for a few more weeks). Last time we participated in the FE and had a blast.

    Has anyone booked a hotel yet? I didn't care for the choices on hotels.com right now. We always book Radisson at the Port.

    We were planning on just staying at the Hyatt MCO and taking the Disney shuttle the next morning. How do you get to the Radisson? There are only 3 of us so using a car service seems to end up being more than the DCL transportation.

    We flew once and rented a car. Keeping the rental during the cruise was cheaper that time. We have driven twice. I think we will again make the 19 hour drive stopping for a few days in Destin, FL to relax before the cruise. That is about 13 hours from here then 6 to the port.

    Yay! A group! I just booked this cruise on board the Fantasy last week. It will be me and my 7 year old son. My brother and his family might come but I don't know yet. Can't wait to go back! :cool1:

    Going to book the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge in WDW with my DVC points on 1/30. Plan to stay 4 nights precruise and take DCL transport to port the day we sail. We stayed there for 3 nights before our cruise last week. It was heavenly!

    Just last Saturday I got a Hyatt day room and it was great! I really liked the Hyatt MCO. I might do that again depending on how late our flight leaves on debarkation day.

    We will probably drive down and park in the garage again. It was $75 for the 4 night cruise but we really liked being able to get right in our own car to head home. Of course I had to be at work the next day, which won't be the case coming home on a Saturday, yay :)

    Another Christmas surprise trip here. When we booked a dummy date on the Dream last summer the girls knew it would be moved to 2015, but not when, they think summer or Dec. The subterfuge has already begun, lol, I have to be evasive anytime they bring up "our next cruise."

    When we leave the girls will be 16, 10, & 10, but one will turn 11 on the ship. We were going to go in Dec 2015 when they would both be 11 and Edge eligible, but Disney changed their early booking rules. :-( Now I just hope the amount of preteens on ship is low enough that both of the younger two can check it out.

    We didn't participate in FE last time, and I'm not sure if we will this time. It looks fun, but both my husband and I are in grad school, so time and funds.....
