    I haven't seen this announcement on DISBoards yet, but maybe I missed it. Just got an email from Disney Cruise Line that says they are looking for hosts for a DCL House Party on November 14th! We did this a couple years ago and had a blast and got lots of free goodies, too.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately) we will be at Walt Disney World from Nov 12-19th so will miss the opportunity to throw a party this year. :sad2:

    Here's a list of the stuff they're sending to hosts and guests this year:


    If selected as a host, you will receive a free party pack, which includes:

    For the hosts:

    * Limited edition Disney Cruise Line host pin
    * Disney Dream luggage tags
    * Exclusive host gift

    For the guests:

    * Disney Cruise Line temporary tattoos
    * Disney Cruise Line bandanas
    * Travel memories scrapbooking paper
    * Disney Cruise Line recipe cards

    And other gifts to make your party magical.



    Sure would love to have some of that scrapbooking paper, along with a pin. Oh well, maybe next year.
    I guess they're throwing the house parties again to drum up passengers during these slower times.
    I'm just waiting until Sep 28th when I can sign up for that Alaskan cruise. :yay:

    Can anyone comment on what exacly the House Party is? Do they just send you the stuff and you host a get together with your own family & friends or are you expected to invite a large number of people? Do you have to open your home for pictures or video?

    You need to invite at least 10 people (family & friends), they want to upload your pictures and/or videos from your party and have guest comment about your party.

    They usually let you hold the party on a different day if you have a conflict. This has been true with some but not all so not sure about the DCL one.

    Wish they could tell us the real date..

    Page one says 11/14, page 2 says 11/7.

    If its 11/14 great and I can apply, if its 11/7 I can't as I get off the Magic that day and won't be home

    I hosted one of the DCL House Parties the last time they did this. :goodvibes It was fun, and it will be interesting to see what they learned from the last House Party that will be different for this one. Hosts received a $50 OBC to use on a DCL cruise, and were entered in a drawing for two free cruises. I will find the Disboard thread and post a link.

    Same with me - I see a DCL party from 2007 that says "still partying" but you can't apply to host. What am I missing?

    I thought it was funny that the questionnaire asked if you heard about the party on www.disboards.com.
