Thanks! She asked if I knew of anyone needing a room, but I let her know at this time no. I can't believe we will be onboard in five months!!

We just booked! It's our first Disney cruise (third overall), and we went for the big one. We'll be with our 5yr old son and 15month old daughter. Looks like I have about 90 pages of reading to catch up on.

We're looking forward to the cruise, and hopefully to meeting many of you!

Congratulations on booking!!! Our two kiddos were ages 5 years and 15 months when we cruised the Magic for the Transatlantic in 2011. Perfect ages! They will have a BLAST!! And if anything like our experience last year... so much to do every single day that we never seemed to get back to the cabin for a nap... so naps happened in the stroller several times. Or on the nice chairs on deck four. We have a great picture of our 15-month old snoozing as we are passing the coast of Africa.... and another of our 5 year old one day at lunch passed out with her head on the table after a shore excursion. So many activities and FUN!

Yay!! Welcome aboard!! We are definitely getting more kiddos on this cruise. I think it's because it's the end of the schoolyear (versus beginning). I feel less guilty pulling our kindergartener out the last nine days.

I agree. It's much easier to miss the last few weeks of school at least in our District. After the last State test in April, not much new instruction is taking place. Lots of field trips and field day type things. My girls would much rather be cruising!

In our state, the state assessments at the high school level fall around the first 2 weeks of May. After that, several schools are now just not doing spring semester exams since they kiddos just had various tests. I work with tutoring middle/high school math students around the country, and this past week was a whoopin' - several districts had exams this week. Some wait until mid January, but I will be glad when this week is over so I can focus on the holidays! But the timing of this cruise is perfect - right after state assessments.

For those you've done a transatlantic before, what happens with the shows? Is there something different on every night, or do they just spread the same ones out a bit!

Same for dinner menu, is it a 7 night menu that repeated, or is it totally different every night?

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us
