Keep what is already in place? Choose a new one? Suggestions?

On a Magical Transatlantic Journey - current website name

Taking the Magic Across the Atlantic... From Tejas from Espana -- one I had placed on a tshirt graphic that got some comments

Other ideas??
"Taking the Magic Across the Atlantic... From Texas to Espana" I really like it.

Can the rest of our cruisers please let your thoughts be known on picking a name? I'd love to hear what you all think and if you have any ideas too.
It's got my vote.

Heck, even if someone wanted to keep their key in one badge holder but nice printout in another, the clips easily hold two and you can pick those holders up for a dollar at Walmart, etc. Printing our own would take out the part of sending donations, making sure we have enough funds, etc. Could easily upload a file, have names/cabins on it, and people print just their page if they don't know how to change name. I know my color printer isn't the best and I printed FE labels and such at FedEx Kinkos in the past.

Definitely a great thought to consider, Sarah!
This might be a better idea. After looking into the lanyards, I'm a bit shocked by the prices. If we had more folks that were willing to "donate" for them it'd make sense, but I think only a few of us have agreed to chip in (I hope I was one that offered to chip in ), it might be a bit dear.

Gibraltar currency

Just as warning to all so no one else makes my stupid mistake:

Gibraltar's currency is the pound sterling, not the Euro! Big conversion mistake, opps. Glad I caught myself as I was doing the math...

When we went on this cruise to Gilbraltar in 2007 no credit cards would work!!! So make sure you carry cash too....several disers had to borrow money from each other to pay their restaurant bill!

Very good point. So many variables - each company different with minimum order, set up fee, color fee, etc. What people voted several months ago versus the number who actually follow through in donating... I can't be eating the cost. The inserts allow anyone to use the lanyard they choose but identifiable with the common insert (of course with DIS name on it and real first name underneath smaller). The only population this does not hit is first time DCL cruisers who will need to either bring their own lanyard, use the one they use for WDW, purchase one onboard (about $8), or purchase one in advance.

And Sarah - look at you - coming up with that on such little sleep! You rock!

number.

Simple as long as. people commit and don't cancel last minute.

We had a great time at ours, especially fab for those adults who are travelling alone but would still like to eat at Palo.

Yummy ��������palo pizza
Are you sure it is MINIMUM 14? When we had dinner there it was MAX 14.

I did price the last 8 nights out of Galveston....it would cost more for those 8 nights than for the 14! Yeah, don't think that's gonna happen for us.

I've been to Gibraltar a few times. The official currency is the Gibraltar pound (GIP).

You can use the British pound in Gibraltar, but not vice versa. In other words, Gibraltar pounds are not accepted anywhere else, including Great Britain.

So, if you receive change, ask for it in British pounds.

FYI for anyone who likes to order things from VistaPrint... they are having one of their many sales this weekend: 50% off and free shipping if $50 or more. If making tshirts for your family, reordering business cards, etc, thought I would throw that out there. They do charge if uploading an image - normally $5 but made it $2.49. I have images out there from previous years so could add under "advanced editing" and re-use previous images with no upload fee.

For kid shirts I have always done Hobby Lobby and iron-on transfers from AmyMickey dot com, but for the $6 rate with VistaPrint gave it a shot with their sale. Hoping their sizing is true to what's stated - will share after they come in for anyone else ordering kiddos a shirt.

Hope this helps someone out there!

Yep because it's part of the UK

Luckily our normal debit cards will just work there.

Thanks for that - will check it out against the UK prices and see what their international shipping is like!
