    Hi, Nicole and family! Lots of time before this cruise, but I am hoping to encourage family friends to sail with us. I think it will be amazing to be on the new ship.

    Here she is, not much to look yet at but oh so special, she is the ship at the front.

    I would love to do the San Juan, but DM wasn't sure. So the Western we go, she is intrigued by the turtles and stingrays. Hey if we have a big win, it might be both.

    Welcome!

    Disney will do a costume contest, a short treat and treat trail and a deck dance party.

    Dis groups that I sailed with in the past have done treat scavenger hunts, group of of kids with an adult solving clues. We all brought a bag of treats and made larger sacs for the final prize.


    I think we might treat the Costa Maya day as a sea day or there is a private beach option I read about on Cruise Critic that looks nice.

    We scored a studio at Beach Club Villas at the 7 month mark, didn't even have to ask, the CM offered when Boardwalk wasn't available. We are hoping to do MNSSHP on the Tuesday then Epcot on Wednesday then on to the Dream.

    Ps, I completely missed this is the 2012 thread, I am high planing mode for the 2011 on the Dream Halloween. I did get a postcard for this cruise yesterday from DCL, kind of freaked me out in a good way.

    And will have similar plans for WDW before the 2012 cruise as we do for the 2011 cruise.

    We are hoping that friends will join us for a 4/5 day stay at one of the DVC villas before this cruise.

    Fingers crossed!

    Hoping to stay at Kidani For 9 days, and after the cruise, Universal for 4 days,hoping the flight prices stay low for Oct 2012, we normally fly out in the summer,but because of the Olympics:headache:all leave for emergency service workers has been banned.This means we will have more leeway taking Maddy out of school for this vacation !!!.

    Cheers

    Iain.

    Hi I'm Joanne and I am from England and I am soooo excited, because although I am a WDW and DLRP veteran, this will be my first Disney cruise!!! I have cruised a couple of times with RC. I have already ordered my FE from Ebay (although not entirely sure how this whole gift exchange works - any help gratefully received). OMG I really can't wait!!!
    I will be cruising with my DH Paul and my DS Alfie who will be aged 12 when we sail.
    It will be lovely getting to know you all before we set sail!!!

    Iain (poster above)
    Which emergency service are you with? I am with North West Ambulance Service!! Seems we will be on the same cruise!!! I am busy worrying about October 2012 flight prices too. We plan to fly out the day the schools break up for October half term, as DS will be in high-school by then, and we wish to minimize the time we have to take him out of school. We know the flights at this time will be expensive. We usually fly Virgin, but will have to look at all options this time (including in-direct). Any advice?

    This mean you should be able to do Halloween on the Ship and then hit one of the first Mickey's Very Mary Christmas Party events, lol. Two holidays with Disney, 1 airfare -> priceless!

    Welcome Joanne, Paul and Alfie! Looks like we are building quite the UK contingent!

    I am sure we will build a roll call and FE list early in 2012, still planning the 2011 Dream cruise, booking day is soon can't wait.


    Ps. gorgeous wedding pics!
