    I created a "Handy Dandy Delivery List" sheet in the FE Exchange workbook. Look at the bottom of the screen for the tabs.

    My husband and daughter are running it. She's only 8 so I'm sure it will be a slow run!

    Amy - My DS who is 11 wanted to run it (will do anything for the plastic Mickey medal!) but when I called, I was told the min age for the Castaway Cay 5k was 12. He was pretty bummed.

    John - thanks for keeping the list. It has definately made all the changes easier to keep up with!

    I have a 4 day dream navigator but its the other itinerary (Nassau, Day at Sea, Castaway Cay). They are very easy to read if you download them as a PDF. ;)

    So now that we are less than 60 days out what is on everyone's list of things to do? I've got our FE lists for both groups so now it's time to figure out gifts! Also we still need to figure out our transportation from Pop to the ship. I've emailed my TA but still waiting to hear back and I'm getting impatient! I'm ready to go! :lmao:

    Luggage! I want to bring an extra carry-on wheeled suitcase on this trip since my carry on bag always gets way too heavy. Packing should be interesting this trip -- I also need to exchange a suitcase I got for last Christmas (yikes, 9 months later...) from my mom. Its from Kohl's so you can return it whenever. Truth be told, I didn't know that I needed to return it until a trip we took in June and I realized its too big (it would easily go over the 50lb weight limit). So that means that I need to buy 2 wheeled (hopefully actually a spinner) suitcases. DH claims he'll use a duffel bag. :rotfl: I laugh because yes, I am an overpacker - but 11 days/10 nights, oh vey - the "problems" Disney vacations give us.

    I also need to make my FE (learning to sew!!), and decide on the FE gifts. I actually started on some for some today. That's all the specifics I'm givin'! ;)

    From everything I have read you cannot use plug in scents of any kind..I heard they will take them away as it is against fire code.

    I brought them last cruise. We had 2. Out in plain sight. I don't think it is on the list of what you cannot bring.

    I know that it sure helped my room smelled great :) I do know you cannot have candles. I bet scentsy is a no-no too since it is melted wax.

    Just checking for those part of the WDW Radio group, there isn't a theme for the door decorating contest right? Just for the flag contest?

    Also I have written down that the door number is 13.5 inches down from the top of the door. Does anyone know if that's to the top of the porthole or the center?

    Also are the door "knobs" all on the same side of the door?

    I wonder if it depends on your room steward - if they are aware of it? Maybe it depends on the difference between the BBW wallflowers vs. glade style plugins? Might be better off bringing something like this:

    glade.com/en-US/Products/Pages/decor-scents.aspx

    Great idea, though, to bring something to keep the room smelling good! I'll just keep on adding to my list! ;)

    Hi All!
    Just booked with Florida resident rates. So there is one less oodle available. The rates are unbelievable. I know we are too late for any group activities but we look forward to seeing everyone.
    We have one Platinum, one Gold, and two first time cruisers in our group. :wave2:C'yall real soon!

    Saw that you are a Disney bride and stayed at Boardwalk. Our DD got married in Celebration (The Archbishop will not allow Catholic marriages at WDW weding pavaiion) and had reception at Atlantic Dance hall with WDW taking care of everything else. So exciting to have a Disney wedding. DD will be, scheduleg allowing (she works at WDW), will be on cruise with us. Phil

    Yes..I am surprised as I thought it would be full with the podcast..i am happy. but Disney will do it's best to fill it up. I know they have offered Florida rates and military rates for this date. And if they have troubles with that, they will offer really drastically reduced rates for CM's and TA's. They have been doing that recently for a lot of the fall sailings. Though even then some of those ships are not full.
