    Surprised that no one has started this thread before now. :confused3 Sorry for a lame name but maybe we can change it later.

    This cruise is a celebration of my DW's 59th birthday which will have taken place on January 1st. :bday: It will be our 12th DCL cruise.

    Looking forward to meeting those riding along! :woohoo:

    I have been on the DISBoards for many years although it looks like I am new. :surfweb: My first account was "retired" after I made 20,000 posts.

    We have sailed many times with our DISFriends and love talking about it here and on Facebook. :thumbsup2

    This cruise will mean that we have been on all four ships as well. We have been on the Magic for 9 cruises, the Wonder for one (to Alaska) and we go on the Dream in February. :banana:

    Looking forward to meeting you! :thumbsup2

    Ok people. You can stop lurking and start chatting now. It is past that unlucking "13" number in months. My wife and I will join that club of being on all 4 ships with this cruise. :banana: First we hve to get past our second Dream cruise this coming March and our New England cruise with RCCL in October, 1012. Can't wait to get back from the latter for the warm weather cruise. :worship:

    :confused3 I must have missed that memo somewhere. :lmao: For our 2006 cruise we had a couple of dozen people on here talking about the cruise about 18 months before it happened. :surfweb: We even took over the chat room each week. Several of those people are still close friends who we have sailed with again. :grouphug:

    So two things:

    Welcome aboard Morsel! Looking forward to knowing more about you and your family.

    If there are some lurking ..... Come On Out! :banana: Join the party!

    Guilty as charged... for lurking! :rolleyes1

    Tina here... Sailing with my DH, DD (who will be celebrating her 4th birthday), and Mom so far. We're "well seasoned" cruisers (this will be DD 4th cruise) but afraid to admit this will be our very FIRST Disney cruise!!!!! :banana:

    I've been reading EVERYTHING and excited more so then my family since they don't even know we're booked yet (well only Mom). Santa is going to be really good to them this year. And I think they may have even made the naughty list once or twice. Hmmmmm

    Anyways, I look forward to getting through the next year and then finally meeting all of you.

    Welcome Tina. If you mean this will also be your daughter's first Disney cruise, then your daughter will love DCL.

    Hi everybody-HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!! Well we pulled off the surprise with the scavenger hunt and there were lots of tears-my parents are so excited.My kids had an idea something was going on but they are still excited.My DDs will be 21 and 18 when we sail and they just love it.

    376 days to go if I counted right. Dad wants to make the chain of rings like we always do to do the countdown.

    Hello Linda,
    How did you do the scavenger hunt, as in clues, etc.? Sounds like it was a lot of fun.

    Hi Chris-It was my 2 DDs and my parents.I had 3 items that reminded us of our trip with each having a clue to the next location.

    I had everything in small gift bags- the first clue went something like I am used to get you clean with lots of bubbles and suds to scrub a dub dub- the first item was a glass fish ornament like the real fish we have seen in Grand Caymen and it was in the tub!!!

    The next one we had hanging on a door knob and it was H2O spa lotion like on the cruise I found in a shop in CT.Clue related to door knob and they found it quick

    The next one was in the fridge and it had our room numbers listed.

    The reveal was a wrapped package with the itinerary printed out in Disney font with ribbons etc...

    We had lots of tears-my DDs suspected something but my parents were completely surprised.My DH filmed it all and I watched it last night-it was great.

    Linda

    Good Morning Linda,
    Sounds like a lot of fun. We went through a similar approach when we decided to take our two grandboys to WDW. Christmas was a clue to making a reservation. February birthdays for the boys brought them clues as to making resort reservations. We had to work with them on that so they would not break the bank on staying somewhere too lavish. :lmao: Then as the year went on we worked with them to select the food plan plus they made the ressies for Rain Forest and T-Rex. It's a lot of fun working it out in this type of manner, which you also have found out.
    Chris
