YES!!! Just booked 2 rooms a couple days ago. Long wait, but well worth it.
Busy time of year, I'll check back in w/ you guys after the holidays.
We booked a SPH the day the cruises came out. 55?? I'm too tired to remember right now. Perhaps we'll be neighbors RAC.
It will be me, DH, & DSs who will be 9 & 12 in 2009.
Looking forward to discussing our Tortola cruise soon.
We just booked! It won't be long time flies....
Hello! I couldn't find a thread for this cruise so I started one. But, I am glad that I found you guys. It will be me, my DD (10) and my DS (16). This will be my first Magic cruise. Really looking forward to it. I am booked in 5020, so it looks like we will be neighbors!!
I can't believe it's only 2008 & I have to wait another yr & half. The weather in the Chicago area is gray and overcast, but at least it's not too cold. It just makes me want to be on the cruise now.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone:
What was your favorite gift you gave this holiday?
gave my sons the Wii & it's fun to watch them play--especially Guitar Hero.
What was your favorite gift you received?
I had a rough Christmas season. I spent most of it at the hospital or funeral planning for an uncle who died the Friday after Christmas. My Mom told me 2 days after the funeral to go buy myself a nice purse. I bought a Coach, but I think I like the pink cellphone charm I bought w/ it just as much. It's my first designer purse. It's not like me. I save my fun money for Disney.
How were your holidays?
Well, let's see it's a looooooooong time before the cruise and winter is now upon us, which makes me think and long for the next cruise.
For us we'll have 2 rooms on Level 2, we love that area. It is myself, DD and DS's GF in room 1 and then DH, DS and DD's BF in room 2. The "kids" will be 21 and 20 at the time of the sailing. We took them with us this past summer on the Wonder and we really had a blast. So we thought that we'd need to take them on the Magic this time around. It will be our 5th cruise, 2nd for the BF and GF.
Don't have any special plans yet for the cruise, thinking Palo brunch, most likely the Rainforest Room, I keep saying I'm going to do it, but never find the time or bother to take the time, so this time for sure. Also think I'd like to attend a few of the tastings and/or classes.
As for Christmas, it was really nice. Both kids were home from school, (DD is near Boston and DS out in Illinois). You know Thanksgiving vacation is so short and they try to jam so much into their time home, so Christmas was longer and more relaxed. We played lots of Scrabble and card games. Went to visit my sister and her family right after Christmas and stayed a few days. She lives in VA and it's so much fun. She's like in the middle of nowhere and we just laugh, and eat, and play games and enjoy my great niece who's 2. Way too much fun.
As for my favorite gift given, hmmmmmmmmmm Well 2 things, I gave DH a nice digital frame with lots of Disney vacation pics loaded. Then I gave lots of books this year. DS is studying teaching history and I found some cool books. My sister has a young girl staying with them and I gave her 3 classics, and of course all the "babies" get new books. (I used to be a kindergarten and 1st grade teacher)
Favorite gift received was for my birthday, which is a few days after Christmas. My husband gave me tickets to go see.............don't know if I should admit this, but to see Barry Manilow in concert. I just love his music. Yeah I gues I'm a "Fanilow"
So as you can see, I love the holidays. Now everything seems so empty, kids are back at school, trees are down, etc... though we do leave our "winter" village up well into February, since it's "winter" Ditto for our "winter" dishes. Just hate to see it all end.
DVC Mary, sorry about your uncle, hope all is well and getting back on track.
That's all from me for now. Just keep your eyes on the 6/20/09 date and it will be here before we know it.
I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle.....
As for the weather...it's so cold and windy around here...we've had our share of ice storms so far this year. It sure makes that cruise look wonderful....too bad it's in 2009.
As for Chirstmas....my favorite gift was new scrap booking ideas I got. My kids got lots of misc things. They had gotten their Wii last year for Chirstmas so them pretty much just got lots of new things to go with that. I do like that Wii is coming out with a Wii Fit game. It's to help people get fit! I so need that game!
Large group coming from all over for my daughter's wedding on Castaway Cay. Last year we had 15 on the Western and it was a blast. Don't know where we'll be on the ship yet. We always book the cat 12 and let fate take it's course. We were very lucky last time and ended up in a cat 7 so hopefully there will be some of that Magic still floating around. I'm in NC but originally from MI. So far we have:
me 43 NC
DD 25 NC
DD 22 stationed in Korea
DS 21 stationed in Arlington
DDIL 21 VA
DB 42 MI
DSIL 37 MI
Dsoontobesoninlaw 29 NC
DF 33 FL
DF 65 NY
DF 64 NY
and rest to be added as they book
How exciting a wedding at CC!! I would love to hear all the details...maybe we'll get lucky and catch a glimpse at your dd on her wedding day. I bet she's look just like a princess! I'll have to tell my dd about this wedding...she's only 13yrs old. But she's love reading all about the different Disney Weddings and seeing all the pics. Also, I was going to tell you...we're from Michigan (born and raised) but moved to Oklahoma.
Pleased to meet you Lettie. My name is Sheryl. What part of MI are you from? I grew up in Southwest Detroit. I miss the family but not the cold and snow. We are very excited about the wedding. My kids didn't travel on Disney until they were teens and they love it. Both have gone with just their boyfriends and they insist they won't travel on another cruise line. Last cruise the youngest child we had with us was 12 and the rest were adults. We had a DIS meet and met some wonderful people that went on some private excursions with us. Good times.
A wedding group. We'll be looking out for you guys. Where do they do the weddings on CC? Is there a private location? I hope it's very special.
Life is getting back to normal after my uncle illness & death. THank you for your kind thoughts. I'm a h.s. history teacher, so the 2nd semester means many new names to learn, but it also means new relationships to build. I really like 2 of my new classes.
We planned a last minute trip to WDW. I'll tell you more about it when we get back, but basically we finally got my Mom (turning 80) to agree to go.
I'm so excited to plan special things for her. My almost 11 yr old DS is just as excited & understands we'll be taking it slow. My 7 yr old DS doesn't get it. He wants Nana to go on Mission Space. Hopefully he'll get it when we get down there.
Busy planning our trip:
2 nights at GF (1st time there--so I'm trying to learn as much as possible)
2 nights at BWV
Working on ADRs & trying to get more (especially at the times we want):
1900 Park Faire Breakfast
Rose n Crown
Have any of you been to the GF? Can you offer me any advice?
Just got off the Magic yesterday where we booked this cruise! At this point we have 7 people...should be 9 by tomorrow and I believe it will grow by the month!
We have never gone during the summer before, but it has now become necessary! WOW, what a price difference. Obviously, we think it is worth it.
Can't wait to meet all of you.
Still swaying in Ohio.........
Welcome We have always gone in Jan/Feb so the June cruise will be a new experience for us also. I know what you mean about sticker shock What part of Ohio? Gotta love that Cedar Point!
We are booked on this cruise - me and my daughter who will be 18 and celebrating her high school graduation
busy time for us now - she is on 2 swim teams and her high school swim team season is hot and heavy right now
Welcome Marla. What a nice graduation gift. I keep saying I want to go with just me and my girls but time keeps flying by. Where are you guys coming from?
We are in central Ohio just north of Columbus. We do usually get to Cedar Point every year though.
I am a teacher that is back to work so we are just going to have to bite the bullet on the June pricing schedule.
Your family looks like a hoot Yankee! Are you all booked on this cruise?
Yea we are a hoot(that's a Southern word. Where did you pick that up?). It's funny because most of the pics on other people's House Party sites are of their kids and the characters or the ship. Ours all have us with drinks in our hands or looking like we just fell out of bed. We had such a blast with our big group. My friend and I took different Disney posters and put different people in our group as the heads. We put those on each person's door and the Captain actually came down to see them. We talked the cast at the Rockin D into picking my cousin for the Gloria Gainer contest and my friend's husband for the John Travolta contest. We have enough blackmail video to last a lifetime. We all wrote letters to the cruiseline to commend the service that the cast at the Rockin D gave us. We are actually expecting more people this time because of the wedding. I just can't say enough about the memories we have gotten from these trips.
southern Ohio gals here
So I take it the last one leaving Ohio is turning the lights out? Anyone driving or all flying?
