    Oh we are so excited! I knew there had to be others going for Mardi GRAS! We are so excited about a ship sailing out of Galveston! We do Disney usually at least once a year - sometimes twice and the drive is so long! So glad we are only 5-6 hours from Galveston! This is our first cruise so we are super ready - my son pointed out today that we are almost under the 200 days left mark!:banana::banana::banana:

    I see you are new to the disboards - there is tons of info here - especially if you are new to cursing like me.

    We live in Houma. Was born and raised in New Orleans and moved to Houma after college. We have been planning since last February and still get super excited every time the subject comes up! We just got back from getting passports. Is this your first Disney cruise?

    Is it our first cruise with Disney. I had cruised with Carnival and my hubby with Carnival and Royal Carribean. I wasn't impressed with carnival so I'm hoping DCL is as fantastic as everyone says.

    We're on this cruise as well with a big group from New Iberia. So excited to have a 4 instead of 14 hour drive!

    Yes we are also excited about the short drive! We are glad we can leave Friday when the kids get out of school and drive over there without it taking the whole day!

    Are you guys staying in Glaveston the night before? I was just wondering what kind of hotel prices you guys found? What I have found was really high! We looked in I think it was Texas city and it seemed to be almost half the price of staying in Galveston itself.

    If you go to Galveston.com, they have a whole section devoted to cruising. Transfers, hotels, parking, etc.

    It is our first cruise of any kind also! We are so supper excited! I have filled our fridge with magnets, made us cups, and I already have a box with things people suggested here on the dis!
    Thanks for the tip about the Galveston website. I am going to check it out. We did book rooms in Texas City because they were a lot cheaper and we figure the earliest we could board would be 11am so we wouldn't need to worry about having a little drive in the morning.
    Do you have children going? I have a DD11 and a DS15. We thought my son would maybe not be as excited because of his age, but I think he is more excited than the 11 year old!

    I've been looking at the webcams all morning. So nice to see her in Galveston!

    It'll be me and my DD who turns six on 2/13. My mother and father-in-law are going as well. My DH passed in July '11 but we still do our annual vacation with my in laws.

    I'm in the OCD excessive planning stage. It's exciting because we've been to Disney so many times that it's almost like old hat for me. I no longer have to research anything when we go and this is a whole new world for me. :) It's been so fun looking for info on excursions, looking at different activities on the ship. I'm so stinkin' excited!!

    Anyone doing fish extenders? I'm looking into them but they are pricey on etsy.

    Is anyone dressing up for pirate night? Almost finished with DD's costume now. :) It's also the night of her birthday, the 13th. She'll be the cutie dressed in pink and black with the feathered minnie ears on. :)
