Those are the ones we are planning on seeing! We may add Old Dogs. Don't think DS would like it but I think DD, DH and I may. We can try to catch it if DS enjoys the kids club. As far as the Princess and the Frog, we plan on catching it at 12:01 Friday. Afterward, we'll get a little sleep before our big day on Castaway Cay!!!

We're still on the waitlist for early dining. We just cannot eat as late as the 2nd seating and I've still got fingers crossed that we get it.

I wouldn't mind at all sitting with other Dis'ers for dinner!

Surrogates
Toy Story I and II (in 3D)

She said there may be some updates but she was pretty certain those would all be playing!
We saw G-Force this week and Christmas Carol yesterday - but I'm willing to see both again! I'm excited for The Proposal and Old Dogs! I'll be hanging out at the movie theatre during the cruise it seems like!

Less than a month to go!!!

It is hard to believe it is less than a month until our cruise!! When I orginally it booked this cruise my friends thought I was crazy booking so far out. It has been 20 months on anticipation! I am looking forward to meeting all of you. We have our Palos brunch on Sunday morning. I will try to stop down at the gathering Sunday morning.
Christina I am so happy you received good news on your followup!! Waiting for answers is never easy.
Catrina is looking forward to meeting friends in the Lab. Seems like we have quite a few 9 year old girls on this cruise. Christian is ready to hang with the guys in Ocean Quest and maybe playing some dodgeball on the sports deck. This should be an awesome time for all of us!!

There is a pretty good chance you will get early dining. On our last cruise in 2007 we were on the waiting list too. I called a few days before we were leaving to see if anything had changed, DCL told me no. When we got to our stateroom, our dining tickets showed early dining. It was great because my DD was only 4 and she would never have lasted till 8. She barely made it through early dining.

Oddly enough my original paperwork from DVC/DCL for this cruise booked in January shows late dining, waiting list for early, but my info online shows early dining.

Good luck.

Thanks! Rosemary

For those of you with young kids wanting to see a Christmas Carol, Brennan and I saw it tonight and it was a bit scary in parts. He's 8 and got spooked a couple of times. Another one of my friends was in there and she thought the same thing about it being scary at times. She said her neighbor's 4 year old was begging to leave. Overall I thought it was an okay movie. I thought it would be a bit funnier than what it was but I'm glad to have seen it.

Carmie 3377-Thanks for posting the list of the onboard movies. There are a few we have not seen that I'd like to go see if we get the chance.

Carmie, thanks for posting the movies We haven't seen any of those. Up was only recently released in Germany (some things we get same day--others we get much later) and no one was showing it in English (our German is getting better and better but we still cannot follow an entire movie--fine for the price of a DVD rental, but not for the price of theatre tickets). We'll have to tro to make it to a few (in 6 cruises I have only managed to see two movies so we will see how that works).

It is a nice idea. We tried it with a group of DIS friends on our last cruise. We called and were very clear that we were only asking to be in the same rotation. I guess their computer has no option for tha so it completely linkied us all. It got terribly confusing with some people booking excursions and We ended up at two huge tables for 18! We asked to PLEASE, pretty please be seperated becuase tables that big are just impossible to have a conersation at. They broke us into two 6 tops and 2 twelve tops. Our family was still stuck at a 12 top which was a bit much for me

I too heard that A Christmas Carol was a bit on the dark side ....

The kids pretty much know the story.

I may check the book out of the library to read it to them before we go.

We have seen Bolt in 3D along with TS1 & TS2 in 3D. BOTH were GREAT!

I couldn't find anything online on our reservation this morning so I called. We're officially in the Main seating! We just can't eat as late as the late seating is eating. So we're thrilled!

FE Gifts Question

Does anyone else need to know the gender of the kids to do the FE gifts? Some are obvious, but some names can really go either way, so I am having a tough time getting FE gifts marked off of my todo list :-)
