    We're booked on this cruise!! I'll be sailing with my husband and three kids. We are SO excited for Halloween aboard the Magic! I was on an October cruise in 2009 (without my husband and kids) and the Halloween festivities were so much fun -- and that was 2 weeks before Halloween!!

    When I was on board the Wonder in 2009, the ship was decorated for Halloween and almost all the characters were in "costumes", for example Chip and Dale were dressed as Cops and Robbers. They also had costume dance parties and Trick or Treating on the boat! They set up candy stations throughout the ship and gave out maps to find them. There was a children's costume parade and also a costume contest for adults later in the evening!

    Good to know! We're not sailing on this cruise, but have wondered. So, they do this not only on cruises that actually FALL on Halloween but around Halloween as well?

    Need to add book a DCL cruise / MNSSHP trip soon!

    We had to modify a previous reservation, though excited nonetheless - Miami, Mexico, Halloween - Yahoooo!

    Anyway, myself, DH, Grammy, and DD (will be 5) are in for our second cruise (did the Magic out of NYC this past August and are now HOOKED!).

    Looking forward to meeting others. Also, anyone interested in doing an FE or starting a private/closed FB group?

    My wife and I will participate in a FE group, definitely! Welcome to the Cruise! Since going on DCL for the first time as an adult a few years back, I actually prefer the Cruise line to wdw!

    oh, we'd LOVE to start a closed Facebook group!!

    we typically don't do the FE as we try to pack just one suitcase for the 5 of us, but, if there aren't too many in this group then we just might participate this time!!


    Anyone going to do the Castaway Cay 5k? Going to do it for the first time this cruise and I cannot wait!!

    If anyone wishes to create a closed facebook group go for it. My only request is that we don't lose sight that this is a disboards meet.

    Just curious what everyone's travel plans are for the cruise. Are you flying into Miami or Fort Lauderdale? Are you arriving same day or coming down early?
    We know for sure we'll fly down a day early, and fairly certain we'll fly into Miami.

    Were probably going to fly into FLL a couple days early and head over to Ft. Myers to visit my parents. Drive back to FLL the morning of the cruise, drop off the car and disney bus to the port.

    Woo Hoo! booked our flights last night! Flying into Miami and found a hotel that offers both free airport and cruise port shuttles as well as free breakfast buffet (the way my kids eat this is a big deal). We're going to stay a few days in Miami after the cruise. So excited!!

    After having a nightmare cruise in 2010 and getting a huge discount, We planned on going on an Alaska Cruise. Then another child came... and my wife and I decided to hold of on Alaska. Long story short (too late), we are booked on this cruise.

    It is going to be my wife and I, our 4 kids and my in-laws (and we are debating bringing a sitter along too).

    Because disney gave us such a huge discount, we decided to to book a larger room... 4 kids require some space. Initially, we had planned on getting 2 rooms, then we decided 2 veranda rooms.... before we knew it I had run the numbers and it wasn't that much more for the 2-bedroom suite (vs the 2 verandas). So we are all excited about the trip and the upgraded service.

    Of course, what none of the rest of my family knows is we aren't going on the 2-bedroom suite. I waitlisted the royal suite and last week the travel agent called and told me it was available. So I quickly jumped on it. Now I am going to try to keep it secret as long as possible. I almost let it slip the other day, though I played it off like I made a slip of the tongue (sorry honey I meant concierge suite, not royal suite).

    We are so excited about the trip. Although, my wife has been on three cruises (3 with me and 1 prior to us getting married) and half have been nightmares (one of them could easily rank up there as the top 5 worst cruise nightmares of all time). I am honestly surprised she is excited to do another one.

    Anyway, I think she wants to join in the FE, although neither one of us are on FB. We are going to drive to Miami as it is only 15 hours away.... and cheaper then flights for 6.

    Thanks, although I am not sure which link you are referring to - one is for FE for an April cruise. The other is lanyards for May.

    Rough cruise describes the last one - Caught norrovirus in nassau.... was kindly asked by the ship's higher ups that the entire family spend the cruise in our room for the remainder of the trip. My youngest daughter who was 2 wouldn't stop throwing up. It was awful.

    They tried to make things as comfortable as possible, but the other two kids didn't understand why they couldn't leave the room (since they weren't sick.... yet). Things really kicked into overdrive when we got to WDW. That is when the real "magic" happened. my wife, son, and other daughter had a 36 hour throw up spell... somehow, and I still don't know how, I dodged that bullet. So the whole thing took 7 days to go through the entire family.... all during a 9 day vacation.

    As bad as that sounds, my wife's first cruise is the winner. Her uncle took her as a High School graduation present. Midway during the trip, I think they were at Turkey, her uncle passed away. They were traveling with a tour group but it was a lot for her to take on at the time with all of the rest of the family at home. Yeah, that is the nightmare scenario.

    I keep telling her that lightening can only strike so many times before you are given a reprieve. So as excited as she is, there is still a bit of nervousness. In fact, one of the reasons she was excited about the larger room was incase we had to stay in our room again.

    Sorry if this is a downer for anyone as that is not my intention.In fact quite the opposite. Hopefully some special magic will be sprinkled our way. Which is why I am trying to come up with extra ways to make this as carefree and smooth as possible. I really don't want this to be our last cruise.
