    FE- I'll make a sign up as it gets a little closer, say at 6 months? I would recommend closing it about 30 days ahead. I'll make a spreadsheet with everyone's info, and I will email the link to the participants (some don't want their kids' names or cabin number easily available on the Dis).

    When it gets time, I'll want the following information:
    Names of everyone in the cabin
    Ages of kids
    Cabin number
    Email address
    Food allergies/special requests (such as gluten free, no alcohol, etc)

    I'll also send out a map before the cruise with all the participating cabins highlighted, it makes finding some of the inside cabins much easier!

    I'm already thinking of my gifts!

    Do you think closing 30 days out will give us enough time? With the holidays right before the cruise time might be tight for everyone.:mickeyjum:mickeyjum

    that's a good point. In the past I have had some issues with some people not wanting to close it until two weeks ahead! :scared1:

    Let's see how big the group is getting several months ahead. I was just on the NYE Fantasy, and our group was not very big- maybe 23 cabins? I think we only had one join in the weeks approaching the 30 day cut off. It was a sold out cruise though, so not a lot of opportunity for folks to add late.

    If this cruise has GT rates though, there could definitely be a lot trying to add late, and it could be an issue.

    True, on our last one we had a 'new' list for folks who joined after the cutoff date. That might be a possibility.
    We cutoff 2 months out with 28 cabins for a 3 night on the Dream. Folks in the original group were welcome to be in both groups.
    So many options out there lol

    I think 30 days is a fair cut-off, or maybe slightly longer. Two weeks is way too close even without the holidays.

    I'm ready to start planning them now, haha!

    I was thinking maybe we should start collecting info now rather than wait. Did everyone get a chance to join the Facebook page? We can post the docs there for folks to add. This will also help us get to know each other better :-). Let me know if there is anything I can help with.

    I think that's an excellent idea - no reason to wait to start this up - that way we can get to know each other...............and see who's here too!

    I have headed up quite a few FE's and would love to start this up - I've got a Google form all set up for this purpose, using one now to head up the EBPC in September, makes it super simple for all!

    Yesterday I did submit a request to join the FB page but I really prefer to keep posts on the DIS. I don't use FB much and the FB page shuts out other DISers. I personally have read many cruise meet threads and know that many DISers not on our cruise will like to read our posts. Also, I chose DISboards and did not search FB for a cruise meet. It is just my personal preference. I love the DIS!

    Just booked this cruise. We'd be interested in FE if anyone is doing it. Even though it's far away- so excited. :hyper:
