Greetings fellow cruisers:
Just wanted to tell all of those that I had the honor of meeting how nice it was to finally have faces to put to the names. Don and I had a great time.
Thanks also for the wonderful FE gifts.
We got home late Saturday afternoon to the joy of having my grandson till Sunday evening. Then back to work today. We enjoyed the F&W festival on Thursday, got to try some really tasty treats.
Special thanks to Jim & Christine for all they did to make this cruise a wonderful event.
Hopefully we'll be running into some of you on future cruises.:goodvibes

If anyone took pictures of the Walt Disney/Roy Disney Suites and would be willing to share them, please send me a note to cbennett724@comcast.net. My mom really enjoyed it but I only got the door of the suite. Would love to put them in a photo book and present it to her for a christmas present.
I have 5 pictures of the suites that came out okay. Not known for my photography skills, but my little camera surprises me sometimes. As soon as I can get all the pictures together, and downloaded, I will share . That jacuzzi on the private deck, overlooking the ocean has to be the ultimate in luxury! I got a good picture of that!

... but we had a fantastic time.

4 nights at WDW, 4 nights DVC cruise, 3 more nights at WDW = fantastic trip!

I only ran into a couple of the group members but made lots of friends on the cruise.

Next time we should all wear a pin or magnet that identifies us as members so we can seek each other out better.

I saw the Canadian group and made it by but the Sail Away Party was already in full swing.

I loved all the FE gifts and I hope everyone like the Mickey soaps I made :-)

    Slowly downloading my pics onto Photobucket (when I have the time). Here are a few from the first day on Castaway Cay:







    I loved sitting in the water and communing with the local fish. They liked to swim around me and hang out underneath my chair.

    I was on your list. Thank you for the soaps and door magnet. :goodvibes

    I loved your Mickey Soaps! They were so cute, I want to use them to help decorate my one of my bathrooms. And the door magnet was super, too. This was our first cruise and I don't have very many magnets. I didn't make very many on purpose. My plan is to fill my stateroom doors on future trips with mostly gifted magnets. Yours will be added to the small collection I have started to gather.

    I was sent a survey about the Member Cruise. Did any one realize the free 8 X 10 picture was one of the gifts?. One of the questions listed each day's gift and the 8 X 10 picture was one of them. I thought that was more of a gimick to get you to buy more pictures. haha

    So we are home...What a downer! Flew Spirit and the gate attendants were really being strick about carryons in Orlando. Glad that's over.
    We will think twice before booking them again.

    Our post cruise stay at the Treehouse Villas was fantastic. We had a great time at the Halloween Party(lots of candy) and the entertainment was amazing. Mark dressed as Harry Potter and got a lot of great reactions from both cast members and guests. Seems that he resembles him and heard "hi Harry" all night. I'll post pics asap.

    We also have some pictures of the suites and will post them. Thanks again to everyone who took time to visit with us at Cabana #4 and on the crawl. It was great meeting all of you. Hope to do it again!

    I had a friend who flew spirit to Texas. She said by the time they were charged fee after fee she could have flow any other carrier and would have had better customer service. Lucky for up I didn't know southwest was 2 checked bags so I was able to spread out the bags and stay under the weight.

    Already ready to be back on vacation!

    Thanks for everything you and Christine did to make our first Disney cruise and our first DVC Member cruise even more memorable! The cabin crawl, the bus, and just keeping this whole thing going!!!! OH THE drama when we first began thinking about this cruise ( and even more for all of the folks who were booked on the ship to begin with )! It was all worth it for us, we are so pleased we decided to come aboard. We are forever grateful for all your efforts, and all the advice we received to prepare for the trip. Deb and Jed O'Brien

    I wasn't sure if I should post this question, but curiosity has the best of me.
    Remember how the Kerry family's FE gifts got way laid by UPS and then never made it to the ship. They asked anyone who still wanted the gift to e-mail them their address, which I did, and she did answer back. Has anyone else who may have provided their address received the FE gift from them? If so, I'm wondering if I should provide them with my address again.
    Not being snarky or mean, I'm just curious.

    They are actually in the trunk of my car. My grandma had a stroke so between kids, life and her I haven't had a chance to mad it to the post office. Sorry! I will get to soon.

    So sorry to hear about your grandma. I hope she is doing OK. Believe me I understand about life "happening". I was just curious, because our mail gets kind of screwed up sometimes out here.

    I thought of you today when I had to send a pkg to my Dtr. The lady asked if I wanted UPS or FED EX and I told her definitely FED Ex - Don't trust UPS anymore, she just kind of looked at me and grinned, like she may have agreed.

    You take care and I hope things smooth out for you.

    We loved meeting so many great people. This was our best cruise ever!

    Charles, (magicalclown) I am so sorry to learn everything your family has been going through and really glad you shared your story. It was wonderful to meet and spend time with you and your family. I am so thankful the cruise was able to bring moments of happiness through all the sadness for your mother. Please send her my best.

    I will post some pictures up including our cabin and what I have of the royal suites.

    It was such an amazing cruise.

    Loved the Cabin Crawl!!! Loved the FE's!! Loved that cabana!!!
