    A 8 1/2 by 14 inch color photo of the dream when it was backing out of the myer weft shipyard. I circled out assigned cabin.

    I did the same thing for my kids. Wrapped up a letter telling them to grab their suntan lotion and bathing suits. They were so excited and we talked about it for an hour after. My favorite part of Christmas!

    Niiiiiiiice!

    I loved how your junior DISers already knew all about The Dream and were asking relevant questions like, 'is this photo when it was still in the shipyard' and 'is there a height/weight restriction for the Auqa Duck'. :goodvibes You will all have an awesome time!!! :)

    We waited 13 months to tell them...we booked in November 2009. I wanted to tell the kids back then but my wife suggested we wait because 18 months of waiting would have been torturous to the kids. 6 months is a little more palatable to them.

    That's great!! I may have to steal that idea. We are booked for March and our kids have no idea we're gong anywhere, let alone on the Dream and WDW!
    I hope you have an awesome trip!
