    Hello Everyone!

    I noticed that there wasn't a link to this cruise and thought that I'd start one so some of us can meet before the cruise.

    SO excited! What are you looking forward to most on the trip?

    This will be our first cruise, not just our first Disney cruise, so I am really looking forward to experiencing that.

    I am SO excited to see Animator's Palette - it looks amazing! I'm also really looking forward to having some quiet time with my hubby in the Rainforest room.

    I've been devouring all of the blogs and tips out there. I'd love to meet others on our cruise! pirate:

    Hello Happy Cruisers!

    I can't BELIEVE there's no thread for this cruise yet! Who else is cruising the west coast?

    I noticed! (Hadn't found this thread on your list when I looked) Doesn't appear to be too active, does it?

    So excited to be cruising with you! You look to be experienced cruisers, have you been on the Wonder before? Anything that I should know specifically?

    Hi Brenda!

    KE Mum, prepare to have a WONDER-ful time!

    Are either of you on the last Alaska as well as the repo? I'm thinking it could be chilly at sea both on the Alaska and this cruise.

    No, we're doing the cruise and then a week at DL. We are from Van and I'm expecting it to be chilly but won't the LA/Cal portion of the cruise be quite warm?

    On the Hawaii in May, NONE of the cruise was warm and sunny except for the days docked in Hawaii.

    Thanks for starting the thread! I love getting to meet people before we cruise! I will be cruising with my daughter (Satarma on the boards). This will be our 6th Disney Cruise (7th cruise altogether), and we are looking forward to cruising the Pacific Coast. We had wanted to take one of the 2012 Pacific Coast Cruises in and out of LA because it would have been so much more convenient for us (we live in New Mexico), and in addition, there were two days scheduled in San Francisco on that cruise, but we weren't able to make the trip. So we booked this one instead. This cruise will be our fourth cruise on the Wonder. It's a great ship, and the first ship we ever sailed on, so we do love it!

    I think you will really like the Animator's Palate. We were very impressed with it when we first saw it too. The Disney Dream also has an Animator's Palate restaurant; it is very different from the one on the Wonder, and I personally like the one on the Wonder better.

    I am seriously considering this cruise. I have never been on a cruise and I dream about it almost daily. :) I think I would have such a great time with my kids and relaxing for a few days would be so wonderful.

    Hello!This will be my first cruise ever! I am so thankful and excited to say my dad and step-mom are giving me this as a gift for my 25th Birthday. They won't be able to come with me but my mom and step-dad are coming with me and so I promised to take plenty of pictures so they won't miss a thing!

    I, personally, am looking forward to everything possible! September 2013 can't get here fast enough. And so with the old childlike question, I end this reply, are we there yet?! lol

    Hi! Looks like we will be joining you on this cruise. We will be celebrating my sons birthday while on board. He really wanted to be on the Wonder to celebrate. Also booked the cruise before this, really enjoy the longer cruises.

    We are from Whitehorse, Yukon about 100 miles away from the port of Skagway, for those of you that have sailed to Alaska. This will be cruises number 10 and 11 for us.

    Look forward to chatting with you!

    Hello All!!! We are cruising with you, as well. It'll be DH Dave, cruise buddy, Carla (onDD's m-i-l), and me. This cruise will be DCL #19 for me. We booked onboard the Dream this past June.

    We are cruising on the Magic on 11/24/12 - about 12.5 days to go. :cheer2: We're a group of 12, including two of my precious 6 grandchildren.

    We are also booked for the PC cruise following this one. That's what started us in thinking about adding on the Vancouver-LA cruise. I can't even imagine being on the Wonder for 19 days! Way to much fun!

    Hello LindaBabe - we've cruised before - the Nanahead cruise in 2006. I know you have cruised with our DIS friends, Glindamood (Gail). I was trying to talk Gail into this cruise and/or the PC, but they are crusing in early 2014.

    Looking forward to meeting all of you. Once I am back from our Magic cruise, I want to ease the pain of post-DCL blues, by planning next year's cruises.

    Just curious - does this cruise have a FB page?

    KEMum - thanks for starting the thread.

    Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

    Welcome aboard JanDave! You won't be sorry if you book the PC cruise after this one. I did it in 2011, doing it again next month, and again in May 2013. Trip of a lifetime. (GLindamood did the one in 2011. I've actually cruised with them twice, and sure wish we could again.)

    Hi Linda,
    I think I missed something. What PC cruise after this one are you talking about? I don't see one listed.

    Jan said there was one - I haven't looked - 3 xs in 3 years is enough for me, even for that fabulous trip!
