So, is everyone ready to start making their shore excursions and Palo reservations this evening? It is good to be on the West coast right now. We only have to wait until 9:00 pm West coast time.

I'm slightly nervous as our DS6 broke his leg 3 weeks ago. It was a spiral fracture of his femur and he is currently wheel chair bound. He is supposed to get the ok to start walking in June (he doesn't have a cast - just a plate and pins) so we should be ok by August but its hard to believe that right now!

I was just checking out the tee shirts that one of you creative thread members made. I will definitely have to order some. What a great souvenir!
Welcome aboard Momfromva! I've added you to the cruise list on the first post of the thread and the Lanyard List. If you provide your room number, I'll add that also.

It is nice now that it works - it didn't use to be that way. It was midnight for the west coast. I had long talks with DCL about the opening time and at that time, they thought it was 9:00pm west coast time. I had to send them screen prints of the system to prove it really didn't work correctly. They finally got it fixed.

I've been on several of the "special" cruises that had large numbers of Disboarders onboard. Those groups would bring the reservation system to it's knees. To many people trying for Palo's at the same time.

Hi, Michelle, WELCOME ABOARD to you and yours. I hope that your little Alex will be up and about by the time our cruise rolls around.

Look forward to meeting you all.

I know what you mean. I am just booking one excursion and Palo. I hope that we are able to get the times that we want.

I got in at 9:00pm pacific time, so you should have gotten in. I guess the usual questions are: Are you paid in full and are you a return cruiser? Other then that, it's hard to say what might be wrong. The system never seems to work well for everyone.

Hi again,

Yes I'm paid in full (the WONDERFUL $99 BB) and it's our 10th DCL cruise.

I finally! got on and did get reservations that will work for us. I get SOOOOO frustrated! This has happened every time I've tried to make ressies at the 90 day mark on - line since they started doing it this way. The only think we've come up with is I use a MAC computer. We wonder if the system just isn't totally accepting of us? (Yes, we're from day 1, an Apple / MAC family) I ended up restarting the computer for a second time before the DCL page finally agreed I was eligible to make a reservation. This was after refreshing pages and re logging on and restarting the computer......
Every year /cruise I send another message to DCL and they return with they are working on it. My wonderful kids always tell me it's operator error.....but every time????? Did anyone else use a MAC tonight? If so, "AM I doing something wrong?"

Thanks for letting me vent.

Now I'm just going to look forward to our upcoming cruise. Our oldest son who is in college, hasn't been able to join DH, myself and high school DS on our last two trips on the MAGIC. He will be with us on this one! I'm so glad we can all sail together again. This was the only BB cruise date that would work for all of us and we got it!

See you all in 90 days!!!!
Barb

Hello All

Well, I've been quietly lurking here for a month or two, not knowing for sure how the economy or summer would shape up, but it looks like I'll be joining you along with my godson and two of his friends (13,13 & 15). Insane or brave? Time will tell.

I actually don't know how many Disney cruises I've been on - I really should call them and ask, but I do know for sure that my first cruise was October 99 on the Wonder (inaugural year) - I have a poster signed by the captain to prove it, so the temptation to choose the 10 year anniversary cruise. It will be odd being on such a short cruise (my last one was the eastbound Panama Canal cruise last summer), but I'm looking forward to it nonetheless (not to mention some significant time at WDW).

Hopefully all the details will work out, passports will arrive in time, etc. Assuming they do, I'll meet you in a few months.

Dan
