I was able to save about $1500 on Kristin and Nick's room using the just released Military rates. Since they work for NASA they're included! More money for shopping is what my wife says....

My guess is because they would need to go through the Disney group then to AAA. From what I understand, when AAA sets up a group trip they buy the cabins from Disney. I don't know what happens to the cabins they don't sell. I was under the impression the extra cabins were AAA's problem. Yet I have been told some incorrect things before from this agent. Anyway, I think it would be easier to move a cabin that is not part of a group deal. My only though for us would be if they had a Cat. 7 open and needed a quad, then we might get moved. We're okay where we are anyway. But I wish everyone else pixie dust.

The FE list is amazing! This is going to be so much fun.

Are we meeting on deck for the sailaway party? I thought I read something about that a zillion pages ago?

That's what I have on my schedule. Anyone of you past cruisers doing the Castaway Clubhouse Meet? It looks like that should be on Monday at 11.

I guess if they have started offering upgrades, they are having trouble filling the ship. The chances of our family being upgraded is just about zero, because we requested the connecting rooms. There are so few connecting rooms available that they fill up easily.

I have still not heard back from Dorothy. We are still on for 10 am sunday in studio sea. Hopefully, everyone has posted their stateroom numbers so that if their are any changes Saturday night, I'll send a message out to all staterooms posted.

Schools here don't get out until June 24th. Finals aren't for another week. The insurance adjuster is coming today to look at the big hole in my kitchen wall. Hopefully I'll get some money back. It seems like we are hemorrhaging money lately. The new car, fixing up the garage, the plumbing, paying off the cruise (thank goodness for the 6 months no interest on Disney Visa). At least we have the money to pay for it but it still hurts to write out multiple checks for thousands of dollars.

Thanks for the reminder......I forgot about the Studio Sea location!!

Question, should we be wearing something or sharing something or doing something at the meet so that everyone comes (or many people come?) I've been reading the last few Tortola threads and everyone is saying that they wished they had met people but they loved their FEs. Is there something we could do to ensure good participation?

Also, our brunch time (Group #1) should be assigned in the next 10 days or so.

JoAnn,

What about doing a gift swap at our Sun. DISmeet like we did on the Med. We each brought something from our home town and picked names out of a hat at the meet so everyone who brought something got something. It was very organized. I think Lucy took care of it, didn't she (not OUR Lucy ). It was very organized and everyone got a number???? Am I remembering correctly?????

On prev DCL cruises we wore a lime green bracelet, (piece of lime green yarn) on the first day and it made it easy to find and meet each other at the port and even a few at the Radisson before leaving for the port. Don't know if anyone is interested in doing this but it did work really well and was simple to do.
