We took the trolley tour the last time and I enjoyed that but the first time we walked all the way to the southern most point and that is a pretty far hike. But, we bar stopped/hopped on the way back and that was very interesting. Remember, my children are all older so that was possible.

My DH lost his job over a year ago and along with his health issues, it has been a challenge but we own DVC so I what can I do??? Yep - a BTB sounds good to me.

We own DVC as well We also went to Key West when we did our first Disney Cruise in May 2007 and it was really REALLY HOT as well! Not a fun experience at all. The weather was definately better this time around so that's a plus.

Link to enter our info found and it has been completed. I didn't go forward far from post 401 and there it was. Geez, it appears we are the oldsters - but not by much. Don't care - I am going on a cruise! I am wearing a smile that won't come off anytime soon. Just love having something to plan. Not only am I a compulsive planner - I am a charter memeber of overpackers anonymous and I DO ship a box to the port too.

Some sad, and some good news.

My daughter and my grandchildren had to cancel this cruise. Just wasn't going to work out for them this time. I am really gonna miss them. The good news is that I just found out that glindamood is on this cruise too. We sailed with them on the 11 day cruise a couple oof years ago and had a great time. Only a year to go!!
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Vickie

P.S. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the 11 day cruise icon at the bottom of my posts?

I'm sorry that didn't work out!! Glad you'll still be there, though. Cool that you know someone already from before!

I have convinced my inlaws to join us on this cruise, and will book for them when I am on the Wonder starting Sunday!! It will be their first cruise ever.

DH and I did our first cruise in 2000 on the Magic, and have sailed at least once each year (just did the Oct 4 on the Magic) except for last year. DH had to have a spinal fusion and we had to cancel our family reunion cruise on the Wonder over Thanksgiving. Everyone else went and had a great time - and missed us some I imagine too. I hate making Thanksgiving dinner for 2.

I need to go back and look through the previous posts. Are we doing Fish Extender gifts, Secret Mickey's or anything else special planned? Gee, you would think we were sailing next week!
Have you done much research into St Croix yet - any excursion that sounds good?

I have been to St Thomas - not that exciting of a place as I am not really into shopping but hopefully we can do something on the water

We went to Key West in October 2007 and it was brutally hot! I had hoped that we could walk but we wound up taking the trolly down to Southern Point - and it was kind of disappointing. I had got excited abotu Key Lime pie on a stick but didnt like - the kids did though. So I just had the old fashioned Key Lime Pie - and that was delicious!

What does your husband do for a living? Any good prospects for work? That must be really difficult for your family.

I found a link on Trip Advisor about St. Croix, what I like about trip advisor is that it's written by actual travelers and not people trying to promote something.

Oooh and YEA, I booked our vow renewal today for this cruise on Castaway Cay!!!! Woohoooo!!! Unfortunately, Kathy from Disney called back while I was at my hair appointment. I had told the kids not to answer the phone. When I initially called DFTW, I specified that they weren't to say they were from Disney Weddings since my kids don't even know about this cruise yet. Just say Kathy from Disney.

Guess who didn't get that part of the message???!!!!!!!!!!!

So yep, she left a long old voicemail on our answering machine about our cruise date, vow renewal, blah blah blah. Oh &%$#! Hopefully, my kids didn't really pay attention to it as she left it... But DD did tell me that someone had called and left a message. This is the kids Christmas gift so I really didn't want them to know yet! Arrggg. Well, if they ask I'll just play it off that I was checking into the dates but that it was too much money...

Thanks for the link! Cruise critic is a good source as well - I have used it multiple times and always found it a good source.

I have used that web site before and always found it pretty reliable.

Some pretty cool activities that I will have to read more as we get closer to the date

I hope so for your sake - I dont know how you can keep it from your kids - you have stronger resolve then I as I just love talking about the cruise.

cruise questions

I can probably ask this on the main board but I thought I would see if you guys know the answers first:

1. we were on the cruise in October 2007 - will teh kids activities have changed much by November 2009?

2. as a returning person I get to book my Palo and excursions early - does anyone know the date we can book?

3. Can I book Palo everynight if I wanted to or can I only choose 1 night?

1 - I have no feedback for you on that as I have no children that use the clubs.

2. - 90 days out we can book. The way I tell is to pull my reservation up and look at the online booking "stuff". The date in that is 90 days.

3. - You may book one brunch and one dinner in Palo - they ask for all names now. You can't book for anyone whose ressie is not tied to yours.
