This is Hadley. Sorry, I figured since none of the adults were really chatting at all I could let the kids go at it and then they might get the rest of us started. This IS the slowest moving meet thread I have ever encoutnered (kind of good for me--less to keep up with, but. . .). Didn't mean to infringe In the begining Sean's dad's account did not even have enough posts to be able to PM--I will see if he does now.

Okay, I ahve started a Dec. 5, 2009 kids' thread for Sean, Marika and any other kids who want to join in. Again, I am sorry to have bothered everyone--I had no idea that the kids' talking would bother anyone--all the other threads I have been on always have lots of people chatting back and forth, sharing about their days nad lives, etc. I miss htat on this thread and was happy to see at least the kids getting involved. Anyway kids, here is the link to the new thread:

Hi Hadley,

We know it's all in fun. Personally I felt a little like a peeping tom reading what appeared to be more private talk.

I think it's great that everyone we've talked to so far is excited about the upcoming trip. Less than 8 1/2 months to go to our departure and this big kid can't wait already!

As I mentioned before, my 75 yr old mom is coming along. She asked on Sunday if there were any casinos on board. After looking over the Disney Cruise website, I can't find any. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

Never been on a Disney Cruise but I do know that there are no casinos on board. I've watched the Disney Cruise special enough to have just about the whole thing memorized and they specifically mention no casinos on board. DS is always asking to watch the Mickey Mouse Boat Show and I won't argue.

This big kid is ready too! The kids and I will be adding a week at WDW on before or after the cruise and we just can't wait. DH unfortunately won't be able to join us at the parks but is looking forward to the cruise because he says that he will actually be able to relax on this vacation, something that's hard to do at WDW.

As others have said--no casinos. The only gambling type activity on baord is BINGO. I ahve never been, but I hear many people really have fun at it.

We are spending the week before at WDW with my best friend My advice is to go the week before if possible for 2 reasons:
1. WDW is exhausting and it is great to then relax and unwind for a week afterwards.
2. (Big one for me) if I am arriving an entire week before sail date in Orlando then I do not stress about missing the ship due to weather dealys, etc. (once ina great while weather delays can be longer than even the one day minimuim window I feel comfprtable with arriving in)



So, to get us ALL chatting a bit about ourselves, may I suggest we do something I have done on some of my other meet threads and havea Question of the Week? Here is a really simple one to get us all started:

Who is your favourite Disney character?

Our answers are:
Me--Mary Poppins
DH (Dave)--Milo Thatch
DD (Marika)--Belle
DS (Rio)--Peter Pan, Mickey Mouse and Jim Hawkins

Favourite Disney Characters

(Favourite spelled the Canadian way eh)

Ok I'll bite

Hmmm, well, opinions and favourites change as time goes on for some of us but here is our list
Dad (Barry) - Jack Sparrow or Donald
Mom (Christine) - Goofy
Erik (DS-8) - Jack Sparrow
Holly (DD-6) - Cinderella or Belle
Peter (DS-2) - Whoever is the most entertaining at the time.

I grew up reading lots of British books (and Canadian--gotta love L.M. Montgomery). I can still remember being STUNNED when one of my jr. high teachers pointed out to me that i used "British" spellings for many words. I had no idea there was a difference based on country--I just thought both spellings were acceptable and I used what I saw the mostBy then the "Brit" (or Canandian) was pretty well sruck in my head so I never botehred to switch (I am a terrible speller--if I got one version right that is good).

Picking just one (or two or 10) favourite is always tough--you can change your answers at any time I am curious is it Barry or Christine who posts?

Dad's the one who spends his days on the computer. Christine's the one who stays home so she's mowing the lawn, cooking dinner, dressing the kids, putting them to bed, laundry, shopping, etc.
Yes, I think she has the easier job.

Actually, I do work too, and, also I cook, clean, pay the bills and put the kids to bed (and bring them to school). I'm phasing the lawn mowing to DS (8) this summer. Just having some fun.

Okay, I am too lazy to go back through the thread. I missed a lot for nearly two months getting this move togther and then not having internet for a while when we got here: has there been any discussion of fish extenders yet?

The week before would be ideal, but if my sister goes (and if is a big word!) we'll have to go the week after because of her school. Also, I'd like to know what kind of promotions are out before booking. Last year, they had free dining for Disney Visa Card holders for what would be the week after our cruise. Since we'll be eating so much on the cruise, I wouldn't care if there is another promotion out but I would definitely like to take advantage of some type of promo. And if free dining is the only promo, heck I'll take it - we still have to eat. I just probably wouldn't stress so much about maximizing the DDP.

I think at one point there was but I'm definitely in! I've bought the material and will attempt the no sew version as I can not sew at all! I've been tossing around ideas of little gifts and trying to think of something unique to bring from the great state of Texas that wouldn't break me! DD and I have been working on door magnets too!

Hi Carmen--I'm glad I will not be the only one with a Fish ExtenderI got lucky and someone on the first cruise I took after finding the DIS made me a fish extender. So, if you all wonder why my FE has the first TransAtlantic logo on it that is why Yes, that FE got precious room in my suitcases for the move (I do not want to try to make one myself) I have been thining of fun goodies to ditribute as well. IS anyone keeping a list of who all will have them so we know how much to bring?

Both school and free dining sound like very good reasons to go to WDW post cruise We love free dinign and have had it on teh last 4 trips. It will be wierd not having it theis time around but my friend has DVC and we are staying with him so I think we would not qualify even if it is offered I am also very worreid about how the German schools will react when we tell them we are pulling the kids for two weeks in DecemberMy defense with them is that we booked this trip long before we knew we were moving to Germany--we're not trying to go against the system
