Airlines

We usually fly American. It was our airline that we used to fly back and forth from London to Texas while we lived in London for a few years. We still have lots of miles so we do use American a lot. My husband gets upgraded so it is his airline of choice. I like an airline that lets me choose my seat so Southwest is never my first choice. . Sherry

Checking in again re: Costa Maya tour to Chaccoben.

Sent a pm around regarding deposit needed. If you're with us and you didn't get it, let me know and I'll get the info to you ASAP. I'm pretty sure I missed someone.

Thanks.

Thanks! I don't mind if you have the same shirts. I will PM you to get the images to you. The shirt quality is okay, not the best but not the worst. We didn't get the premium shirts because I knew we won't be wearing them that much and I didn't want to spend more than the $20. If you want a nicer shirt, I would order the premium, esp, since there is only two of you.

A Reason to Celebrate

Looks like we are will be celebrating a engagement on this cruise!
So my sister's BF is not coming on the cruise with us, he is a lawyer and owns his own practice and can't get away for two weeks. Well he contacted me today about flying to Cabo with a "surprise" for my sister while we are in port. I convinced him it was a bad idea (short port time, no cell phone communication, I don't want to miss my dive excursion.....) and convianced him to surprise her in Disneyland!

The plan is that he will be waiting in front of the castle so when we leave the Plaza Inn after breakfast, we will run into him there where he will propose! This way, we can spend the day in the parks celebrating together. He will surprise her with dinner at Napa Rose while we watched the kids and then surprise her with a room at the Grand Californian. The kids will come back with us to our hotel. We will met up on Sunday morning for breakfast and head to the port where he will see us off.

I bet my sister will have the whole wedding planned before we get off the ship!

So a question for disneyland vets: We have breakfast at the Plaza Inn before the park opens. How long would it take from when the park opens to get to the castle and how long would it take us from the Plaza Inn to the castle?

How exciting for your sister! The Plaza Inn is about a minute or so walk from the front gate and the castle is about a 30 second walk from the Plaza. DL is a lot more condensed than WDW. You can have him stand on the bridge that leads into the castle as a place to "run" into him. If you don't want her to see him, distract her with a map while you are walking towards the castle. Make sure to video the proposal because we will all want to see! Just pretend you are taking a video of the castle when you are walking up.

Awesome!!! Did you know that you can hire a local photog to come into the parks and take photos? I just saw a thread on the DL board. They paid $300 and got a session and all the photos on a CD. The woman said there are a bunch that do that, but you may have to pay for them to get into the park. They could get it all on film and then do some family shots. I will go find the thread I was reading.

Thanks. Knowing the walking times helps. I plan to stall at breakfast by having DH keep getting more food/eating (he has such a hard task) until I get a txt from the DBF saying he is set-up. At that point we can leave. My sister would never hold a map! That's what she has me for! But I am sure we can find a way to distract her! The moment she sees him, she will know what is happening so the set-up is important. Can you walk all the way through the castle in DL? I am always videoing so my sister wouldn't think twice that I have my camera out and my DH will have the other camera. I was thinking about preordering the photopass + in case we miss the shot. I can't wait to capture her moment as she captured mine!

I sure hope she isn't lurking! If she was, I would have already been yelled at for some of the things I said about her on here!

Thanks I bought the Living Social for Vistprint. I think it's perfect for a cruise photo book. Sherry
