We live about 6 hours away so we stay at the port the night before, then we will be at my other home AKV. So excited to meet everyone it will be here before we know it. My husband called me today and told me to watch the weather, I already told him there were several storms out there and what DCL does if we are faced with one, glad he pays attention to me.The bad part is we work public safety therefore if a storm hits us here we can not leave but we do have the insurance for that reason.I will tell you this EVERY FREAKIN TIME we go to the port for a cruise it rains! I said if they ever have a drought there just book us a cruise

We drive up the morning of the cruise, it's only a 3 hour drive at the most. Then we'll drive home the day we get back, drop the kids off at school, and go back to work. Not as fun as staying at Disney, but we're just happy we are sneaking in this cruise during school. I will hope the weather stays clear for all of us.

See you soon!!!
Art of Animation looks so cute! I'd love to hear your impression.

You'll probably be at the Port long before I will, since I'm taking DCL. But since there is only one of me, there was no better way for me to get to Port. In February, I was a little disappointed at how late I was picked up by DCL at the resort. (Actually, they told me the wrong time, so I was hanging out in the lobby for a couple of extra hours.) I'm sure your method of getting to port will be much more satisfying. In Jan 2011 I was with my folks, so we had a car. Got to Port very early and were one of the first on the ship. Ah, those were the days!

I'm starting to make my packing list. See you soon! (By the way, we don't use the "r" or "s" words....that would be rain and storm...)

Hi All FE participants!

So, this is the first time I've done the FE thing. At first I misunderstood, but I've read up on it, and think I've straightened myself out. Just got the thing to hang on the fish, and picked up a bunch of goodies. I was going to put items in labeled little baggies for everyone....Is that over the top? Please advise, since I don't want anyone to laugh at me.....

Thanks!
Dawn

Just booked!

Hi all,

My husband Steven and I just booked last minute on the castmember rate. There is still a a chance we wont be able to go if we can't get all the time off but maybe if everyones keeps their fingers and toes crossed for us it will happen!
Heres a little bit about us: This will be our third cruise. Our first was the Western Caribbean (7 days) on 9/19/09 for our honeymoon. Our second was the Panama Canal Repositioning cruise (15 days) on 1/6/11. We are excited to be on the Dream for the first time. we are both Disney castemembers. I, Holly, work at the Boardwalk resort and my husband, Steven, works in Fantasyland. We are originally from NH but have been in Florida for 2 years now. Very excited (and nervous!) about this last minute cruise!
Does anyone know what shows are being shown onboard and what nights they are? Also, since it's been awahile: second seating is at 8:15 right? what time do you go to the show before? Thanks and I look forward to seeing you all!

Holly

Yes, no "r" or "s" or "h" words spoken here either!!!

Crazy packing now, we leave at 4am! Yikes! I'll try to check DisBoards while we're en route and maybe during our time at DW but no promises! Can't wait to meet you and everyone else at the meet! Don't forget! =)

How exciting to have castmembers cruising with us, thank you for all you do so glad you get some fun time too! If you have second seating you will attend the show first. I think at one point they added a third show not sure if that is still true but they became pretty flexible with which showing you wanted to attend. Shows should be Dreams, Twice charmed and Villans tonight.We are having a meet at 3:30 District lounge on the day we board it would be great to meet you. Have a great cruise!

I was trying to get an idea of the movies that would be shown, so I asked the people on the 8/15 sailing. The movies shown on that cruise were:Cars 2
The Muppets
People Like Us
Chimpanzee
The Avengers
Brave
The Odd Life of Timothy Green (the pre-mEAR)

See you soon!

Maybe we will check out Timothy Green but we've seen most of the others. Not sure if any other Disney related movies will premiere before our cruise. I can't wait until this cruise. We are so busy at home because of the r and s words. And the RNC word.

OH great, the update on Issac shows it coming straight at us late Tuesday early Wednesday, we live in Pensacola (cantonment) GRRRRRR. This may put a damper on our plans depending on how much damage it causes and wether our jobs will make us remain hereIf we don't get to go we can still send our FE gifts with our friends.I don't wish this "S" on anyone but if it comes into the gulf someone has to take one for the team and I prefer it's not us. Hope to see everyone in a little over a week.

I will run out to the Gulf with my super powered fan and start blowing it more towards Texas for us. It's a weak storm and I hope it stays that way and breaks up before going back to the Gulf.

My dad is debating if he should bring his walker. Are there ones you can borrow - and even if so, would he better with his nice one from home? Granted we can fit it all in the car!
