I would absolutely love to have one! How did you make this?

There is so much to look forward to I am a bit overwhelmed.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome aboard! I have added you to the roll call on Page 6/Post 77. If you want, let me know the names and/or ages of your family and I can also add that to the list.

WOW! Between ACL repairs, fx toes and vertebrae, this is definitely a group in need of a Disney cruise (I have bad knees, but my biggest pain at the moment is my sister-in-law...does that count?). So sorry to hear of your ailments; definitely hoping for the best possible outcomes

I truly try to be happy and count my blessings every single day; seriously, you never know what will happen in the next five minutes, much less tomorrow.

What a great idea...I never would have thought of it . I considered buying a couple but thought they would be too bulky. The bags will be overstuffed as it is (and I'm sure I'm not alone). But the offer of a drink still stands .

Did you ask your TA to put in a request for 1st seating if it becomes available (or did you ask DCL if you booked yourself)? Alternatively, when you board the ship, ask where dining changes can be made (usually in one of the clubs) and go there immediately to request a change or put your name on a waiting list. You never know!

I had to smile...despite all your pain and disappointment, your last comment was completely unselfish. Very nice. And happy belated anniversary.

We love using the board for messages between cabins. It works wonders. We first used it before the wave phones and we still perfer it over the phones. I do not want to carry a phone with me on vacation and worry about losing it or try to txt in T9. We leave messages about where and when to meet for lunch or an activity along with reminders. Hope it works as well for you guys. Do you need one or two?
Good idea! I gave dry erase board as a FE gift on our med cruise back in 2010 before the days if wave phones!

Hello all--- We're new to cruising and I'm trying to find out some more info regarding "formal" dinner evenings. What if you're not into wearing a tie and coat and your other half says she doesn't think she even owns a dress anymore. Is the formal thing optional or should you plan to just dine elsewhere on formal nights

Hi disneyrick. Sorry I haven't been quicker to respond; I've not been on the boards the past couple days. I've looked in all my normal places around the house that I would have stashed Navigators - and found them for every other cruise we've taken, plus the paperwork we had from our stay at Disneyland after the Panama Canal in 2011, but no PC Navigators. I must have decided to put them in a really safe place... If I can think of another place to look and manage to find them, I'll try to post them here.

I remember a lot of good special events - Don "Ducky" Williams sessions, show with Susan Egan (original Broadway Belle), talks from a retired PC pilot, Jimmy Buffet tribute band, Crew Talent Show, BBQ on deck on PC crossing day (all of which I would recommend). Other things we didn't attend included a Cirque du Soleil-type show, a Mexican song and dance group, and voiceover sessions. Hope that helps.

Those are adorable. We would love one for our door! Thank you so much.

The fashion police will not be present on the cruise. Feel free to dress how you like. However, I wouldn't show up in a t-shirt, board shorts, and sandals. I think business casual would be a minimum.

Exactly. I wear a skirt and sweater set, but black pants and a nice top would be fine for "your other half". It's vacation, but you also don't want to offend anyone (and yes, some guests consider themselves the fashion police, but who cares about them? ). DH wears a coat and tie because he enjoys it, but plenty of men don't. Some people also wear ballgowns and tuxes (especially for formal pictures)...to each their own! No need to dine elsewhere those nights.

Since there will be two formal nights we will likely dress for one in the full long dresses for pictures and then go more semi-formal for the other. It is just too hard to pack it all!

I hope he will be on this cruise, I met him when I was two and he made me a drawing of Mickey Mouse and my sister got one of Minnie. It is currently framed and hanging on the wall in my basement.

My sister will be crusing with us so the fashion police will be present! But don't worry, she only judges when paid to do so and not on vacation. She also could care less if people dress or don't dress up for formal night. So don't worry, your photo won't appear in any magazine or website. You might hear her discussing my poor taste in outfits though. I drive her nuts and she "can't believe we are sisters". When we booked the zipline excursion, DH turned to me and said, "you know you are going to have to tell her she can't wear heels for this, right?"

The disneycruise website is making me pull my hair out today! I am trying to simply reserve some nursery time for DD and after taking forever to load, everytime I try to click "Save to Cart", it thinks for a while, DOES NOT save to cart, and then just provides a greyed out button. I have logged out and logged in, tried other days, but the site is just being unagreeable today. I have other nursery hours booked and plenty of hours available. It boggles my mind that such a big business could be running on such an insuffient website. I think I am going to make a huge door magnet for our cabin that says "Please do not refresh this page or use the back button during this operation!" with the flashing mickey heads. I bet that magnet would get "borrowed" off of our door!!!

As of today, we are showing only 45% cabin availability (54% last week). Cat 5B & 7A have fallen off the availability list. Not sure if we are getting more bookings, or if DCL is taking rooms out of inventory as they sort through GTY's. We are getting close to the 50-day mark when they usually start announcing GTY's.

Upgrade pixie dust to everyone!

The categories that are sold out are R, S, 5C, 5B, 7A, 10A, 10B, 10C, 11A & 11C.
