We haven't booked our flights yet but hoping to fly out of Buffalo on Friday before. I still am doing some research on excursions but not sure what.....would love to hear what everyone else is doing. Any other little kiddies going around the same age as my son?
Chat soon!
Hello there to Ej's mom. We are from Ontario too. My kids are 8 and 10 at the time of the cruise. We are also looking at booking flights from Buffalo on the Friday before. Though I can get a better price from Detroit. We are thinking beach time for our excursions but are still considering all the options and are looking for other opinions too. Cheers,

Hi Pumpkin21.......we're also from Ontario. We don't have to fly as we'll be in Florida before we cruise. If we did, we'd take Air Tran or Spirit....good prices. My grandkids are 3,5,7 and 13. We're looking forward to beach time as well, with a little shopping thrown in for me. Lets hope for good weather.I've been looking at millions of posts and have a list of beaches for both islands...it's just deciding. welcome!!!!!

Hi Disney Nana,
I've been lurking a lots, and have seen you're looking for great ideas. I suspect there will be quite a few Canadians on this cruise, given that it's our March break period.
The scrapbooks folks have posted - not to mention amazing craft work on the FEs - is tremendously inspiring.
For shore excursions, we are thinking about the rain forest hike on St. Maarten, and then I would really love to get the whole family snorkeling - DD is 10, and very excited at the prospect.
But first, it's a matter of getting through Hallowe'en. Don't know about your neighbourhood, but ours goes crazy fun for the event!
best,

Paper

Our friends are flying out of Buffalo, but we'll be redeeming points for our flights, so we're coming from Toronto. My DS will have just turned 6 by the time we cruise...

totally forgot to tell you all --- if you google or 'swagbuck' - Kodak Photo Gallery Thanks -- you can find a screen where you can sign up for a free $15 photo gift. You can use this gift to buy a tshirt - which comes to $2.99 after shipping --- I did this and used an upload of the kermit pirate at the left of this message and had it put on the tshirt --- it turned out great!

Hi everyone

We're joining this fun bunch on this cruise. Me (Monika) my DW (Vicki) and our DD (Lillian) who will be 10 months old at the time of the cruise.
We're in a Cat 4, can't remember the number atm.

We're flying from California, so we decided to get into Orlando a couple days early to let the baby adjust to the time change. We'll be staying at AKV March 11-13 and then after the cruise at BLT, March 20-22. Looong vacation. However, this will be the baby's 2nd trip to WDW in her young life! Yup, we're WDW addicts.

Looking forward to meeting ya all!

Just placed a deposit today.

I was stunned that Spring Break was available for a reasonable cost. It's been 5 years since my last DCL cruise - costs have just been too high, so I have been sailing other cruise lines. But on a whim I checked rates for Spring Break. Granted we'll be inside, but the inside rates are comparable to a balcony rate I was willing to pay in summer. So, DCL here we come!

It's just two of us. Sara is a Kindergarten teacher and I am a Business Analyst. We live in the Dallas, TX area and are looking forward to this vacation.

I look forward to getting to know all of you - and according to my travel agent - only 123 days til embarkation!
