    Thanks for the tips, I am trying ( and failing) to not overpack. I think we will bring our snorkel gear, we are really looking forward to snorkeling at CC!

    We brought our own masks and snorkels and just used the fins and vests from CC. DD hated the snorkeling (much different than practicing in the pool at home obviously!), so she and I won't be snorkeling this time. DH still plans to bring his mask, though.

    Where are you flying in from? We are flying Southwest at 9:15 am Saturday from Midway in Chicago. I also payed for the priority. If I don't hear anything from Southwest, I guess I will be waiting at 9:15 next Friday for on-line check in. We've never flown Southwest before. I hope we don't get a phone call or have any issues.

    Great! We haven't seen any of these. DD11 really wanted to see Wreck-it Ralph. I would be happy to catch any of them.

    Hi Ropedrop,

    I am trying to get up to speed with the posts on this thread. DD (12) is home sick so I am using this time to try and get up to speed!
    Are you still doing the 'last minute FE' for the late comers? We would love to be included as we were late to this party!:rolleyes:
    Let me know and I can give you our deets.

    Bonnie

    We are flying out of Baltimore. We also have a 9am flight. We are planning on getting to the airport nice and early. Don't want to take any chances. The lady who called me said that she could switch us to another direct flight later that day, but when I checked on-line everything was sold out.

    Since this will be our first cruise and I discovered this site while planning, what's the deal with the meet at 3:00. Do we jut get together to say hello? Are there other events that people have planned other than the FE? Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.

    Sure. PM me. I just picked up a couple of little things. It'll be fun anyway.

    Hi! The meet at 3pm is to say hi to all the DISpeeps who have been chatting on here- and put a face to the name, so we can "know" each other on the cruise (it's great to see friendly faces all around the ship!). We will also take a group pic on the stairs, which is a nice thing. :goodvibes I know i am signing up, along with some others, for mixology, but other than that, I am not aware of other scheduled activities. I have been on other cruises that had more going on (scavenger hunts, trick or treating at Halloween, cabin tours) but they were all longer cruises with more time for that stuff. :)

    Thanks for the info. As long as we don't get ourselves lost while exploring the ship after boarding we should see everyone at 3!

    Hi all - I have been so busy at work that the time just got away! This will be our first cruise too = just me and DS 15. I am a little nervous that there seem to be lots more teen girls than boys! My son thinks he will be spending a lot of time in Vibe -- away from Mom and he is worried about me being alone!

    So I will be looking for all the other abandoned parents (lol) and hoping that he will make some friends in the club!

    We are from Batavia IL and in the middle of track season so he is wondering where he can work out - how old do you have to be to go to the fitness center? I am not a runner so I just want to relax with a book or take it all in!

    I hope we will find all of you at 3:00! I am still wondering what to pack!

    Also - has anyone every done the parasailing - I got talked into it and am VERY afraid of heights !

    Rope Drop - are you on the MO Board too? It was your trip report from last year that convinced us to try a cruise! I am sure my son will see your older girls in the club!

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    Jan (and John)

    We have spring fever here! It has been in the 70's and sunshine all day - just hope we have beautiful warm weather on the Dream! Serious packing is beginning here tomorrow. We fly to Orlando on Saturday. Who all is staying at the Hyatt at MCO? This cruise needs to be about 10 days so I can do everything I want to do!
    BataviaMom - my DS and DH are doing the parasailing at 10:00 - what time are you scheduled? There is no way I will do it - way too scared of heights! BTW, what is the MO board?
    I'm not sure about the age of fitness room but I think it's 18. I have seen lots of folks running on the deck though.

    We will be at the Hyatt but our flight gets in around 11 pm which is making me a little nervous if something ges wrong!

    So I am thinking we check in at the hotel and tell them we are on the bus. what do we have to do then to check in and get the bus?

    I hate being new to this and not knowing!

    Thanks!

    Oh - yes we are parasailing at 11:00. I am pretty terrified but my son is now saying "he owes me" so that is not a bad place to be with a teen!

    MO is the *********** board where a lot of the DVC folks hang out!

    Getting super excited!!! Can't wait to meet everyone at 3:00!

    Jan-- I'm traveling solo with my DS (9) and DD (5). We're also sort of neighbors--I'm on the NW side of Chicago. My kiddos are younger than yours but I teach high school so guessing we might have some common ground. DS and I are doing parasailing at 11:00 as well--wonder if we'll be on the same boat? I'm hoping to run the 5K on Castaway Cay. I haven't read those threads in a while but I think you DS might be able to do that.
