    The NYC World of Disney sounds like a fun place to go. And you even got to see Minnie :goodvibes

    We are getting excited here to go to Ft Wilderness in 3 weeks. We are going to be going to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. My dad passed away in early June and we are hoping to take my mom (if she agrees-she is not sure yet) to help take her mind off of things etc.

    On our last cruise last Dec. We were suppose to wear the Dis Lime green and meet at the SailAway party. There were so many people up there that it was hard to really meet everyone and know whether or not they were wearing green because of the Dis boards or just wearing lime green. I definitely think that we should meet up before the sailaway party maybe at one of the lounges and those that aren't busy can show up and then maybe we can have another one the next day or something too.

    I think namimg our cruise would be fun to do along with coordinating t-shirts and/or buttons. We just bought lime green shirts for our last cruise, but if someone is really artistic and creative maybe we could have someone make a design or button for our cruise.

    I definitely want to do secret santa or fish extender exchange. That was a lot of fun on our last cruise. We also decorated our doors and that really helps add to the excitement of the cruise

    Anyone else have any ideas or suggestions to this. :banana:

    Hi everybody. We just booked this one. It will be our 7th DCL cruise (our sixth is comming up in September--I doubt I'll post much over here until after that cruise!). It will be myslef, Hadley (and I get to have my birthday on board!), my DH Dave, DD Marika (who will be turning 13 later that December:eek: ) and DS Rio (who will be turning 11 later that December). On our Transatlantic cruise last year we met some wonderful friends who we are sailing with again this September (one couple form Las Vegas, one couple form Rochester, NY and one family from Florida). This group has become some of my VERY best friends. I am hoping we can convince them to join on this cruise as well:dance3:
    I haven't told the kids we booked this one yet. When I eventually do I am sure they will pop onto the meet thread.
    It is nice to meet you all:goodvibes
    Hadley

    I just booked. It is my first cruise and I am so excited to be going Disney and in December. It will be myself and DB (darling boyfriend?) Marty. We leave this Wed for 7 nights at POR so I am on quite a Disney high today. Did I miss the post about a separate web page? Maybe I misunderstood. Thanks

    Hi Amy and welcome! Now I am no longer the newest poster on this thread:thumbsup2

    How exciting for you that you are leaving for WDW. We are staying at Port Orleans (French Quarter) when we go next month--we love it there--it is where we spent our honeymoon 12 1/2 years ago (and came home with a "souvinere"--DDMArika is now 11:rotfl2: )

    I see you are in Maine. That means we have to be kinda sorta close to one another (we are in central NH). Maybe sometime in the next 16 months we can manage to get together and have a precruise meet:goodvibes

    I don't think there is any other website for this thread yet (unless I also missed something). Honestly, in my opinion, it is early for that anyway. As is, THIS thread only sees activity once or twice a week (but I am sure we will all be more chatty as time goes on and the cruise gets closer).

    NHdisneylover-Enjoy your time at POFQ. I am hoping we will hit the jazz club there Wed night. Either there or at POR there is live music-I think. This is my 4th time at POR and I can't bring myself to try another resort.

    I see you have cruised before. Maybe I will PM you with questions as the months go on. And maybe meet for a shopping trip somewhere too :)

    I will look for info on a website in the future. It is far out. I was surprised to find this board. Surprised but happy.

    Hi All,

    There will be the four of us joining your merry cruise. I'll be bringing along my mother and her two friends. Me (53), mom Terry (83), Ed & Barb (70ish).

    I'll be going on a DCL 3 day cruise this year in October and then a trip to WDW after the cruise. So I probably won't be posting much until I return from that trip.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Hello! This will be our first 7 night cruise. We have only been on a 4 night Disney cruise (2004).

    Welcome to all the new people since the last time I posted here, ages ago! :)

    My DH and I just got back from our Alaska cruistour with Princess. We LOVE Alaska almost as much as we love Disney! While there, we heard that Disney has applied for some of the permits to allow their ship(s) into Glacier Bay. Only a few ship are allowed in each day so they are arranged well in advance. I believe this is for 2010 but it could be for 2011. If Disney ever sends one of their 4 ships (2 new ones will be done by then) to Alaska I'd have to seriously consider switching from Princess.

    In the meantime, this cruise in Dec 09 is our next scheduled cruise as we do one each calendar year.

    I'd also vote for meeting before the sailaway party as the lime green shirts didn't work well last December at all. Way too many people in the crowd and we didn't really have a clue who was who.

    Hello Inkmahm!

    Welcome back!

    I did not know of a 3rd and 4th Disney ship in the works! That would be a great trip during the summer holidays!

    I'm sure we'll hear more about that in future Disney emails.

    Now that things have gotten back to 'routine', the kids back at school, the Canadian Thanksgiving in one month, and smooth 'sailing' on the horizon as we head toward Christmas (Uh oh, I said the word - yes it's coming fast!) I got to thinking this morning of our upcoming Disney family travels. It's really exciting! I can't wait until the family can get together on the cruise.

    Yes, I'm a guy, we get excited too ya know!

    I hope Disney gets the permits for Alaska. I know I could get my husband to do an Alaska cruise.

    Hello everyone

    I was raised on the island of St.Crois USVI and still have plenty of family members still on the island. I will be going on this trip....I was suppose to go on the Double Dip cruise that would have taken place on September 27, 2008 to October 4, 2008, but thanks to Hurricane Ike, I had to change my plans. Anyway, I planned on going on this particular cruise, so Noo Prablam Maan!!!!:woohoo:

    Perfect! We have a local to help us with hints of things to do on the island! Welcome to the group. We're all dying to know more about St.Crois.

    Provided the kids have fun, it's all I need to know.

    I've been to St. Croix and did not find it particularly interesting. My real desire was to go to St. Maarten, but those cruises were much more expensive. It won't matter to the kids anyway, so the fun will be all theirs.

    Just looking for some nice quiet time with my bride while the 3 kids play on their own.
