Hi, Are you parents of aidtrismommy & dancingdisneygirl? I am getting confused. The profile fits with 2 boys age 3 & 1 but I feel I have missed something



Yes I am the mommy of aidtrismommy & dancingdisneygirl! I'm amazed you pieced this together! First cruise for our 3 & 1 yr. old grandsons. We have been on 15+ cruises, but this is our first Disney cruise.

Welcome aboard!!!
No not a full boat, I check every Monday but just looked again, the cruise before us only have Cat 4 available but for ours every Cat from 4 thru 12 (except 10 & 11) are still available.
Alcohol policy
Alcohol is permitted onboard. However, be aware that any fragile items (including bottled alcohol) must be hand-carried on board in a day bag and/or carry-on bag, the dimensions of which cannot exceed 22" wide, 14" high and 9" deep. Guests who request a Wine Steward to open and serve a bottle of champagne, wine or liquor that has been brought onboard will be charged a corking fee of $15.00 per bottle.

Are you on this cruise? If the ship is not full, and cabins have been assigned (ours was early this week), does this mean there will be a chance for upgrades at the port or....will DCL call folks to upgrade? Just curious if there are as many cabins open as it appears.

RichieGracieMom,

Two years ago on the Wonder they would not let us move our daughter move up to the next age group. My son had to move down...which he didn't want to do. So needless to say my daughter stuck with us for most of the trip. I am not sure if this applies to the Magic as well, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

thank you, she is almost eight, will be in january, so when i spoke to the cruise line theysaid it should not be a problem since we are traveling with another group and all of their kids are in that club. who knows but that stated that they do not want this to ruin our cruise. have to wait and see and whoknow she may like going in the little one.

Our DD13 is a little shy too..but she did ok on our last cruise...so i am hopeful she will make friends and have a good time!
It's reassuring to know that my 13 year-old DD isn't going to be the only one on her own. She's very nervous about going it alone, but she has always seemed to make friends easily, so fingers crossed... I'm hopeful that the Disney staff know how to break the ice for everyone.

In other news... my DW has come down with swine flu, which sucks rather. We leave for Florida on the 11th August, so suffice to say the rest of us are getting a little nervous - we're caught between trying to avoid her, or trying to get infected so that we get it out of the way before we travel! Either way... it has cast a slight cloud over preparations.

Then it should work out well you!! Especially if you are with a group and she would have been left out of the group. In my case, they probably had a crystal ball and new it would be better if they stayed separated.

Oh no! That does suck rather. I hope your wife gets well soon, and if the family gets it too, that it is short lived. The good thing (if there can be a good thing to this) is that if you do start coming down with the symptoms you'll know what it is, and you can go to the doctor quickly, as I understand that the flu medications are more effective the quicker you get them.

Hi Paul, hope Vicki recovers soon, not good while you are trying to plan but better now than nearer you go. Feels like everyone knows someone with it now.

Follow the Bouncing Cabins



We heard from the TA, and now we are in 2108. It seems to be the universally accepted knowledge that this is a quiet cabin in a good location. Once again, just happy to be on the ship!

to RichieGraciemom.

And, I should note that it is only

30

days until boarding!

See you all soon

If you'd like, I'm happy to give you my DD's Facebook or email, which you could pass to your daughter. It might just help them over that initial trepidation if they know there's someone familiar is going to be there.
I'll send you a pm with Kristine's email address. She doesn't have Facebook, yet.

We will also be on this cruise. We booked last year while on the Panama Canal. DH decided last year when we booked that he would like a year off of cruising, so I am bringing MIL with me instead. I have a DD 14 and DS 8. We are going to be staying at the Radisson the night before the cruise.

I am so looking forward to a relaxing vacation. Hopefully we will have wonderful weather.

DD14 is looking to communicate with other girls her age. If anyone has girls the same age, PM me and I will pass on the information. She is not planning to be in the teen club, just Ocean Quest as she met up with a friend last year on the PC and she is 13. I'd rather she be at least a year older before she does the stack.

Oh no!!!! If there is any silver lining its that she got it now and not right before you leave. Hopefully it will run its course by then. I hope the rest of the family can avoid it.
