Glad I didn't offer to buy everyone a drink. It would have wiped out my $300 OBC and some.

Hi Wayne,
It's Marianne. I am wondering with the FE since I never did it before, are we buying 94 things? I don't mind, just trying to keep up.

Hi Marianne
Maria is keeping a count on numbers her last total in post#749 was 25 adults and 29 children.
There are 94 Disboarders from this thread hopefully all having a meet onboard but not all taking part in the gift exchange.

That last sentence fits me. As fun as a gift exchange is, it's just one more thing to deal with and a few more things to pack. But I hope to meet most, if not all, of you at an onboard meet & greet.

Yesterday it started snowing before I left work, which is normally just under a one hour commute. Today, between icy roads and alternate schedules / bus routes for the local schools, I am staying home. What I would give to fast forward six months. Instead of freezing in temperatures that still haven't exceeded the freezing point, on the last Thursday of August I will be enjoying a day at sea with all of you!

we will have to see when we get there...but our DD was bored at times in the younger age club last year ( she was 11). Ofcourse she can always hang around with mum and dad!

Please tell me this is no true!! My daughter is 13 and was under the impression she will be in the stack with her brother who is 15. She looks older than 13, maybe I can get her "in"!! LOL

OT-
I get a not home from Marina's teacher telling me that she has been missing a lot of school, but most of the are medical and excused.

She missed 6 days at the end of Jan. because she had influenza. She was very sick. She went home an hour early becasue I had to reschedule her ortho appointement due to illness.

Plus, 2 days for WDW and cruise

and she missed yesterday due to URI , the doctor wanted her to stay home today but she did not want to miss drama.

It is irratating- I can't control when she is sick. I can only keep her away from the other children.

Erik and I think that it could be her classroom. Matt was very sick when he had her. He caught strep so many times he had to have his tonsils out.(Marina got hers out at the same time). They kept giving it back and forth.

I hate when parents send their kids to school sick.

Sorry, it's true. Other parents don't think it is appropriate for 17 year olds to act like 17 year olds in front of 13 year olds, so Disney made a change and we heard about it about five or six months ago when people started talking about this change on the main DCL board.

So she will be in the Lab? She was there last time I think and she was 8. I know she enjoyed herself then but not sure about now. Man, she was so happy knowing she'd be with her brother. Not sure when I'm going to tell her!!

But I found one tonight and wanted to tell you all that my disney BFF and I will be going on our first Western Caribbean cruise!! I cannot wait. But I'm a little unsure about what to do in the ports. What do you all suggest we should do for the ports of call? THanks for this! God bless and happy Mickey!!!

Welcome Mickeysgirl, whatever your real name may be

What to do in port? Look at the available excursions and choose what interests YOU! Also, look online for alternative activities or excursions you can do with an independent operator.


Advice for everybody flying - check your flights from time to time.
Looking today I discovered schedule changes for both my flights to and from Orlando. The schedule change on the outbound trip will require me to leave about three hours earlier; hopefully tomorrow they will be able to rebook me onto an earlier flight out of Seattle so we can get to Orlando before midnight.
The schedule change for the flight home means we'll need to spend the night somewhere - hopefully one more night in Florida.

The nice thing - because of the schedule changes I hope to be on flights I would have preferred, but were considerably more expensive. Hopefully I'll have the same luck for the trip back.

Everyones different in ports, we tend to just get off the ship for an hour or 2 then back onboard to enjoy the empty ship, you will have to look at the excursions see if anything interests you.
Only thing we might do is the fishing trip at Castaway Cay.

We have had about 5 schedule changes since we booked last October, Delta have got to be the worst airline for changes. Just glad we have Biz class for price of coach or I wold not be happy with all the changes. We only paid $665pp then they jumped upto $2,431pp now back down to $1,737pp
