    I think everyone may have to ask to be added by someone else via a friend request who already in the group because the group privacy is set to secret. You can't add someone to the group unless they are already your FB friend!

    lbroberts - I'm sending you a friend request because I can't use facebook at work. I'm in for just posting the list and letting everyone decide when to put their goodies in.

    We are flying into FLL since it's cheaper than Miami. We are planning on getting a car rental.

    I am also looking at car rentals. Do you have any suggestions for the ones with the free shuttle to the port?

    I have not been able to find a hotel yet, which I hope to do some research next week.

    My family will be cruising on this cruise. It will be our second disney cruise. I was wondering about the FE and how it works. We will have to staterooms, one with my mom and dad and my two daughters (16&11) and the other will have my husband and I with our son (9).

    The car rental companies that have free shuttles to bring you back to the Port of Miami and pick you up from the port are: Alamo, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty. I called them personally, but you can always call yourself for piece of mind. The rates do fluctuate like airfare, I am currently "WATCHING" for my price to come back, and I'm going to book it. I am choosing to go with Alamo, just because I've rented with them before and they are the rental car of "Disney" lol! Those never heard of rental companies are CHEAP, but you will have to pay for taxi to get back to and from the port to them.

    As far as Hotel, it's making my head spin. So many "areas" of Miami. And a lot of it seems shady. Ive been ready waaay too many reviews. I just want a CLEAN, SAFE, place to sleep & shower,maybe take a dip in the pool without spending a fortune... because we'll be at the beach or cruising the town while we are there (2 days). A free Breakfast would be nice, but we all know how those end up.

    I gave up on research and booked La Quinta in Airport area. They have free parking, free breakfast and free port shuttle and the lowest rate. Reviews are not too bad.

    Reach out to lbroberts, she has started an FE list on facebook. :yay:

    I haven't participated in FE before but basically you have a Fish hook outside your cabin, you hang something with pockets (you can decorate it, put your names on it) and those who are participating place little treats/goodies in the pockets during the cruise, you do the same for those on the list. Kinda like Secret Santa. There are some ideas for the FE on the Just for Fun threads.

    I just received a planning email from Disney cruises. It said that we didn't have a formal night. Does anyone know if that is true?
