    I just requested to join the group (Bonnie Green). Thank you. I am not interested in doing the FE, but my son and daughter-in-law are interested. I will relay the info to them since I'm the one who stays on top of things as I have the time to do so. It will be great to "meet" everyone on FB.

    We're booked at the Art of Animation Finding Nemo Suite. Heard a lot of good things about it.

    My TA did it. No deal yet, but she said she will get it for us when they're announced. Hope so!

    here is a link to the spreadsheet that we used on my last crusie for FE.
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhtS_VzkxTPYdGRpMzRxUHhnbVkzUU92bW9sWEVnWUE&usp=sharing (You will have to ask for access). If this is something that the groups wants to do then we should somehow add the link and the link to the facebook group to the first post.

    I just requested access to the google doc, as well as updated my very first post of this thread to include the facebook group link.

    Just out of curiosity, did anyone else book through DU? and will you be using them to book WDW as well? Anyone planning on going to the DU welcome center?

    Ha ha I have no clue what they do at the welcome center.... That's why I am slightly curious what the point of stopping by would be. This is my first time using a TA though and so far I am very happy, she is great.

    I am thinking about doing the fish extender thingy, what do people generally gift?

    I have read a lot of the posts, i just dont want to be "that guy" that goes either overboard, or does junky stuff.

    People do all kinds of stuff. Some make stuff and some buy. If you go to a search engine and put: 'disboards fish extender gifts' you will see posts about it. If you put this search in google images lots of good pics will come up.

    I booked Old Key West 12/30-1/3 the other day. I would really like to find a house on the beach instead right after Christmas. Tho it will be my 60th birthday, New Years Eve at WDW sounds like a nightmare after Christmas!!

    I requested to join the FB group.

    It is currently -0.1 degrees F. Good thing I am leaving for 5 nights on the Wonder in 10 days, otherwise 11 months would be too long to wait. I will report back on our shore excursions in Cozumel and Grand Cayman. AND all the tasting I plan to do.

    Stay warm everyone and dream of sunshine and beaches.

    I own at Aulani so I have to wait until the 7th month mark to book. I'm thinking 2-3 nights. Starting the 1st or 2nd. Probably the 2nd because I don't know if I want to travel on NYD. I want an EPCOT resort but I think those will be hard to get.

    We're flying in NYE day. We wanted the excitement of WDW and Downtown Disney NYE. And that gives us 3 full days to visit 3 parks before the cruise. We know it will be crazy, but we have no choice. Can't do it after because of school for Elizabeth.

    Luv - you will find it difficult to book in the Epcot area at seven months. Usually it clears out some on NYD but with the weekend two days away I think it will be tougher next year. Even OKW is tough at 7 months. I would love love love to get Boardwalk, but think I will have to be content with OKW.

    Bonnie - What goes on at DD on NYE? Maybe we can head over there instead of a park.

    I am planning to spend a few days with my family - kids and spouses before the cruise which is why we are talking about a beach place. one DS and DDIL are teachers that have to be back in school on 1/2.

    From what I read there are some game places that cost to enter. The stores do stay open. We're planning on an early dinner (currently thinking of T-Rex on our dining plan) and just walk around. We did read somewhere that there are fireworks, too. We're coming in from the West coast so we think we'll be able to stay up til midnight (body time 9pm)!

    Luv2 - call right at 7 months and grab whatever you can - most likely Saratoga maybe OKW, but you might get AKL. you could do a wait list for an Epcot resort. If we decide to stay at WDW instead of the beach somewhere, that's what i will do.

    Thanks for the info, Bonnie! I guess I could have just asked my DD since she lives there and works at WDW (AKL).
