I love doing the fish extenders. I am happy to organize it if anyone wants, I organized it on the last cruise. We don't have many people here yet, but once it gets closer???
On our last cruise we all met briefly at 3pm right before the lifeboat drill in the prom. lounge, and it was a good way to quickly get to know a few faces so we could say 'hi' during the cruise.
I am down to only owing $500 on the cruise now - paying bits and pieces here and there...
Its getting closer, but still soooooooo far away!

Hi all! We are booked for this cruise as well. Our party consists of Myself, DH, DD 12, DD 9, and my parents. It will be the 4th weeklong Disney cruise for all of us. Our last trip had a great group of disboarders, and we enjoyed many activities with the group throughout the week. We still keep in touch with many of them, and I am actively trying to convince them to join us.

Has anyone started to put together a master list of fellow travelers yet?

Checking in

Hey all,

I thought I would check in as we will be submitting our passport applications to our local post office this week. We are getting the kids the passport cards, and a full passport for me. The wife has a valid passport already.

Just wanted to say hi to all of the DIS'ers who are attending this cruise. Would love to be a part of a meet and greet aboard ship to meet some families with kids near the same age as ours..

Me (Andy) 36 (DH)
Becca 36 - (DM)
Sam -7 (DD)
Katie -5 (DD)

Sam and Katie will both be 6 and 8 at the time of cruise. Our kids are very outgoing and love to meet new friends.

We are still pumped to go as this will be our first cruise ever! Both Becca and I have never been on a cruise either, except I was in the Navy for four years aboard an aircraft carrier, but I dont think It will be the same. Hey, at least I dont have to work 12 hour shifts and eat lousy food while I am aboard.

I vote for LOLLIPOP's MOM to be the official "MOM" of the cruise! If you could organize the fish extender exchange thingy, that would be fantastic! Please post the rules for all to see.

Just like to say "hey" to all the new persons joining our cruise. Not many of us, but we are gaining speed.
We do not have a "leader" yet, so if anyone wants to step up and do some organizing, please do. That sorta stuff is not my forte.
Lollipops Mom has offered to organize the Fish Extender Exchange, so I beleive that is covered. Anyone want to organize a DIS group "hug" (meet and greet) for when we get on the ship? Anyone?
For any of the new to cruising persons out there. Just ask away. There are alot of expereinced cruisers on this thread and on the DIS boards in general, the only dumb question is the question not asked.
7 months people......better start packing!!!!

** WE HAD TO CHANGE DATES AND I CAN NO LONGER ORGANIZE THIS -SO SORRY **

Ok....
I am happy to be the FE organizer.
I will start a list on this post that I can update, so if you want to be in the FE, please pm me how many adults/kids you have!

1.
2.bigturkey12 (1 adult, 1 teen boy)
3.SamKatFam (2 adults, 2 kids (girls))
4.seashell724 (2 adults)

Once we get closer and we see how many there are, we can make more 'rules' and things.

When I have some more time, I can post more about the FE. Right now I have to run out the door in a few mins. Basically its just a token fun something. I can post a list of some of the things we got and stuff like that.

It is just myself and my daughter, who will be almost 14 when we go! I am going to pm you and hopefully your son and my daughter can chat beforehand on facebook or something and get to know one another!
