    It's wonderful. Only a few days back we didn't know if a WBTA will come and see now. Lots of activities are organized and lot's of people joining this cruise and group. And on page 29 already.

    Thanks to ....? if you manage to make a weekly recap.

    :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

    Thanks Noel. That's a good start for a search.

    Thanks Mandy. I was just thinking we have to have a calender with all is organized and there it was. You made it.

    Palo Group Brunch

    If you are interested please PM me your names and party size.
    (Don't leave a message in this thread... for organizational purposes I need a PM please. Thanks!)

    ~ I will have everyone re-confirm after PIF (Paid In Full) date to make sure everyone is still onboard since this is so far out.
    ~ I will request full names, cabin number and reservation numbers at that time before I send in our request. These must be supplied to be formally added to the list I submit to DCL, again, at PIF date.
    ~ I will submit the request to DCL in June 2014 so we are in the queue although we know they might not look at it until closer to the cruise.
    ~ Once your name is submitted in June, there are no refunds or changes.
    ~ We can have a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 14 for each group according to how Palo is now on Magic (assuming drydock won't affect Palo private room sizing). These numbers are fixed by DCL per the private room size - not random numbers I pulled out of the air. 12 is the minimum required by DCL per group booking at Palo, and 14 is the maximum seating. Therefore we can have 12, 13 or 14 individuals per group. Again, these are per Disney guidelines, not mine.
    ~ I will add guests to the groups on a "first come, first served basis" starting with group #1 - and those will be the dates we request with DCL (not guaranteed). Groups filled in order the PM is received. If you join the cruise at a later date and these are filled up, no, I cannot remove guests already signed up as many on this thread booked this cruise on opening day. This is not a selective group but rather based on people who sent me a PM to sign up. Waitlisters are listed along with date they sent their PM.
    ~ If for some reason you cancel this cruise, please PM me immediately so I can fill your group as we must have the minimum of 12.
    ~ Due to the popularity of this event and number of cruisers we anticipate, we will try to fill the groups to 14 to allow a maximum number of cruisers to participate.
    ~ We should receive confirmation about 2 weeks before we sail with charges made to your onboard account.
    ~ When you are able to make your own personal Palo reservations, it is encouraged to do so. When your Group reservation is confirmed, DCL will delete your original "on your own" brunch reservation since we can only book one brunch prior to embarkation. Do not rely on this brunch to "make" - be proactive and still schedule your own brunch just in case! There could be other groups making the same request which is why we encourage you to schedule brunch on your own after PIF date - just to be on the safe side. Just because we have groups filled to Disney's capacity does not mean you cannot book your own brunch personally when Disney opens that booking window based on your Castaway status. Again, that is a Disney determination on when those bookings can be made.


    Preferred Date to send to DCL - Group # (usually right when Palo opens)
    Sept 7 Palo Group Brunch #1
    Sept 9 Palo Group Brunch #2
    Sept 10 Palo Group Brunch #3
    Sept 12 Palo Group Brunch #4
    Sept 13 Palo Group Brunch #5
    Sept 14 Palo Group Brunch #6
    Sept 15 Palo Group Brunch #7
    Sept 16 Palo Group Brunch #8


    If for some reason DCL cannot accommodate all groups, we will be asking for them to fill the groups in order 1 thru 8... so if another group has already beat us to it, we may not get all requests.

    As names are received, I will keep this post updated. :)

    (1) Shercara son Nick to join group 6 or move all 3 if possible - received 7/31/2013 *** COMPLETED 1/17/14 from standby to group 2 for Nick and also moved mom/dad from group 6 to group 2 so all could be together***
    (2) add TeamH5 - received 9/07/2013
    (2) add mug318ca cabin 8586 - posted in thread 10/16/13
    (2) move Dgentrysim from group 2 to group 1 if possible (1/4/14) *** COMPLETED 1/17/14 ***

    (2) change karrit2000 to group 8 to group 2 if possible (rcvd 1/17/2014)

    *** I will hold off on moving up standbys until PIF date as we are having folks cancel and others needing spots. It will be better logistically to move up at one time so groups can be accommodated better, and will still be moved up according to standby order (just like in the airline industry haha!!)***

    Those I need to remove:
    Group 1 - 2 - Hazel and Annie *** COMPLETED 1/17/14 ***
    Group 8 - 2 - NWMom and NW Dad (cancelled 11/14 on facebook) *** COMPLETED 1/17/14 ***
    Group 2 - 2 - bound2travel (Kristie and Jolie) posted 1/16/14 in DIS thread /FB *** COMPLETED 1/17/14 ***

    Mandy, thanks for posting the Palo Brunch info. I have added it to the first page, I also think they should PM you cabin numbers as DCL will need that. :thumbsup2

    If you PM me your list of attendees weekly I will edit the 1st page, once we get to the next thread you can add it yourself on the first page but for now send it to me and i'll edit it so it doesn't get lost. :)




    Liesbeth that is only an example, we haven't arranged any dates and times for anything yet. I think we need to wait until we see what events we want to arrange first so we can share them across the sea days.
