    We've decided to wait until next time to join in on FE's! Hate to spend extra money on the FE (not the gifts) and have to trip be a once in a lifetime thing!! However, we'd love to meet up! Love new friends!

    This is my first time. Have wanted to do it in the past, was afraid of money and time constraints. We will definitely come up with a time for everyone to meet before the trip, so make sure to look out for it. Excited to meet everyone.

    Have everyone already signed up added to the list. We have 15 adults already, and 19 children. Should be a ton of fun. I have everyone's email addresses, and can go ahead and send the list, or do you guys want to wait until the cut off? Do you think the December 1 cut off will give everyone enough time with Christmas coming up. I am starting to think we might should make it sometime in November. You guys let me know what you think. Thanks so much.

    We are from Houston, this is our 2nd cruise as a family but 1st Disney. We are surprising our girls for Christmas so they have no clue! I will probably wait until the last minute to make our gifts so that they can help out. I am flexible with the time so whatever everyone else decides.

    I am so excited to meet up with everyone :) Our last cruise my husband & I sat staring at each other while our girls were in the play room, we saw many groups meeting up & so wish we would have done that.

    For you past Disney cruisers, any advice for us newbies?

    I am torn on this. I don't want anyone to miss out, yet I have started working on some items and would love to know how many of each I'll need. Maybe we could bump it up to November 16? That would allow us to have the final list in time for black Friday shopping.

    I think the November date sounds good also. I see other people have a 75 day cut off, so I think that will be fair. The pay off day was the other day, so I am sure that a couple more weeks will give people time to decide if they want to do it or not. My boy's do not know we are coming either, and it will be part of their Christmas gift since we just cruised Disney in September. I would like to go ahead and get started on what I am doing while they are at school during the day. I will wait for others to chime in before we decide.

    Excursions

    I have done a lot of research on this, and I think we are going to book our own excursions. One of you were asking about beaches. I have seen a couple good reviews about Paradise and Nachi Cochum(spelling) in Cozumel. I have also seen a lot about Sea Grape in Cayman.

    I think what we are going to do is the Turtle Farm through Boatswains. You save 20% if you book online. I read that they put you on the same boat as the people who book through DCL. Here is their website. http://www.turtle.ky/

    In Cozumel I haven't decided. We might go to Paradise Beach, and we might just walk down to Margaritaville and play on the water toys there. You can google pics. Here is an email I got from Paradise Beach.


    Hola Jessica!
    Greetings from sunny Cozumel, Mexico and the best beach club on the island
    PARADISE BEACH!! The quickest and easiest way to get to our wonderful
    beach club is to take a taxi from your cruise ship terminal. There are
    literally hundreds of them outside of the terminal, so just hop in one and
    say, "Take me to PARADISE beach!" It is about a 10-15 minute taxi ride and
    runs about US$14 each way for up to four people. There are also taxi VANS
    that can hold up to 8 people and cost about US$28 each way.

    Paradise Beach offers something for everyone, whether you are wanting to
    have some fun in the sun or just take a break in the shade…we have a
    little bit of it all. We recently added one of Cozumel’s largest swimming
    pools along with two bars, additional changing rooms, bathrooms and shops.
    This is all in addition to what everyone has always known and loved – THE
    BEACH.

    For the use of our facilities (including the rental of lounge chairs) we
    charge $2 with a $10 minimum food and/or drink consumption on the beach or
    at the pool. We have two full bars with drink specials, including the
    famous tropical drinks served inside a whole coconut or pineapple. Plus
    our waiters offer full menu service on the beach, so you don’t even have
    to get out of your lounge chair to order food or a cold beverage. You can
    check out our menu on our web-site at
    http://www.paradise-beach-cozumel.com

    For the kids, and the kids at heart, we offer a FUN-PASS which gives you
    unlimited play time with the kayaks, full snorkel gear, paddle boards,
    water trampolines, 14-ft. climbing iceberg, water slides, a floating
    multi-tiered Jungle Joe climbing structure, the Rock-it circular water
    rocker, water mats, coconut tree climb and bungee-trampoline jump, all
    this for just $12 usd. There isn't necesarily a minimum age for the toys,
    but the water is a little deep around the toys and a young child will not
    be able to stand. Life jackets are included in the $12 Fun-Pass fee, we
    just ask for you to leave an ID as a deposit.

    We also have several extra activities available at Paradise Beach
    including parasailing, wave runner rentals, banana boat rides,
    hair-braids, temporary tattoos, internet (free!) and heavenly massages on
    the beach.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions or need any additional
    information. We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Gracias!

    Everyone let me know what you guys decide about FE. Look forward to hearing from everyone.
