    Glad someone did. Thanks. :thumbsup2 We're onboard and our DD will be 12 and DS will be 10. This will be number 4 for us and the first on the Magic. pixiedust: Since it will just be back from a refurbishment, it'll be like new. Lets get this thread going and here's to meeting new friends. :cool1:

    It's been a few years since I've been on but I wanted to try to get the kids involved with Fish Extender/Fish Exchange and maybe meet some kids their own ages on board, at least the oldest or the TWO oldest. :fish:

    We got hooked a few years ago and we can't seem to get enough. On our last two, my daughter met someone new and they still keep in touch. Since your second oldest and my girl are the same age, they can do the Edge together. You never know who'll you meet. We don't really go in for the FE thing, but the meet-n-greet on the first day, is great.:disrocks:

    Hello,

    I will be cruising for the 3rd time with my DDS 13 & 11 and my mom will be coming with us and will be her first cruise. My family experienced our first FE group this February and had a great experience. Is there a FE group started for this cruise yet? So excited to surprise my girls, but nervous because my DH and DS will not be cruising this time, its just the girls!

    Welcome swollf,
    Since you were just on the Magic, you'll be a good judge to see the "New Magic", after it comes back from being refurbished. I hope that Topsider's gets turned into a pod style buffet as compared to a cafeteria line style. I think it flows much more easily. I don't think that a FE list has been started yet. We probably will not be participating. I certainly don't want the summer to rush by, but I can't wait for our next cruise to begin.

    I am excited to see how the magic changes from my February cruise. It will be neat to see if the kids notice the changes. I am bummed, I had to switch the cruise from this cruise on the 29th to the one that leaves on the 15th. My 70 year old mom is coming with us and she didnt want to leave on Thanksgiving. I am not sure that I will be able to enjoy any of the Christmas things that early in November but I guess I will find out! Well guys have a great cruise! I dont even see a thread for the one we are going on now, so I wont even be able to chat!
    Have fun and be safe!

    I'm sure that you and your family will enjoy the earlier cruise, as well. Come on. It's still Disney! Have a great time.

    Yay! there's finally a thread!

    We will be 2 families

    My family: Me, DH, and my kids WXYZ
    My brother's family: DB, DBW, DN (10)

    It will be our 2nd cruise (first on the Dream), and we were worried about seeing Magic as "dated". All the news about the refurb got us sooooo excited! Can't wait to try the new AQUADUNK!


    I'm hoping we can get an FE Exchange going!

    Hi everyone! I just booked this cruise for myself (DM), DD11, DD10, and one of my girlfriends. I tried to keep it a secret to surprise them at the end of the school year, but I just couldn't keep the magic to myself! :) It doesn't sound like we've officially started an FE list, but if someone does take the reigns on this I'd love to participate! Wish I knew how to organize it but since this will be our first time participating I don't want to mess things up. &#128535;

    Welcome and the FE list is all yours if you want it. Pulling it together, I guess, is just asking who'll be participating and their room number, to exchange the FE's, then posting that list. With all the things going on in our household, we, unfortunately, will not be participating. Good luck.

    Hello! We just switched our future cruise to this sailing! This will be our 10th Disney cruise. We have a daughter, turning 2 in June and will be sailing with my mom as well.

    I'm starting to look for info. I haven't done a 5 night on Disney previously!

    Welcome. We're going as grown ups as well, we'll just be taking our 10 DS and 12 DD with us. It's nice that the cruise can accommodate all our needs.
