OK, I am not the best at instructions, but I will try.

I use Photobucket to house images I want to post.
Upload your pic to Photobucket.
Once it is in your library, select the picture
pick the last code that in the image code list over on the right (think it says IMG code)
You should then copy that code into your message or signature and the pic should show up.

Hope I got that right, like I said, I am not the most tech savvy person. Someone, please correct whatever I may have wrong here.

I was trying flickr but that didn't work so I might try photobucket. I put the link to a picture of our fish extenders.

We just put the little kid gifts into a gift bag. The small bottles of tequila and salsa were just put into the FEs. For the older teenagers we did speciality popcorn and put those in a brown lunch bag that we wrote their names on.

Palo

The chilled strawberry soup was amazing and the pizza (which we shared at our table of 4 was delicious. I think I devoured a whole plate of white chocolate dipped strawberries myself.

For dinner, the filet with gorgonzola was superb, although I think I will have them put the gorgonzola on the side for me next time. The lobster ravioli was the best I have ever had, maybe the best thing I have ever eaten in my life (this was on the Dream, but I bet it would be the same on the Wonder). The souffle was everything that everybody says it is and then some.

Service is top notch and your server will do anything to make sure you have a memorable meal. We had the same server for brunch and dinner (different days), her name was Jessika, and she remembered all of our requests from brunch.


I may be wrong but I think that High Tea has been discontinued on all sailings, no matter the length.

Hungry now?
Haha ... we went to Palo for dinner on the 2009 cruise. It's rather fancy for us, but I want to try to brunch .

Good instructions The only thing I can think of that might be confusing is if the auto/easy share thing is turned off in their account. It used to always show the link options that you can just copy right on the picture, but with one of their upgrades they eliminated that and now you have to actually find it and turn it on. If that feature is turned off for them they would just need to look under "image links" on the right-hand side of the page. They should find the image link there The "update link options" in that same section is where they would turn on the feature.12


Here's a picture of our old one. This picture is before we finished making it. We had the lady custom make it with the top portion larger than normal so we could put patches of Disney Characters all around it. It said "Cruisin' with Character" and had a dozen or so character patches around those words. I can't find a finished picture though

I emailed the existing list this morning so if you don't get it please email me your info again.

For those of you who haven't done it before, we did it for the first time this past March and we had a blast. Luckily our teenager knows how to sew so we were able to make nice FEs. I did take it to a local shop to get the names embroidered (it was $5 a name, not too bad). We did go overboard with the gifts, but we had a fabulous time! We wanted to bring something from home to share with everyone so we gave a indv. size of local salsa, small thing of tequila and fun toys for the kids.

We saw all kinds of different types of FEs. Buckets, pencil pouches etc.
I haven't emailed you yet, sorry. We're deciding if we want to participate or back out. You can remove us for now and I'll email you when we make the decision.

Glad I got it pretty much right. The image codes have always shown up for me so I wasn't aware they didn't show up that way for everyone. Not sure I would know where to find the auto/easy share option myself.

Kidlette, I hope you decide to participate in the FE, the more the merrier. The one cruise we didn't participate, while it was nice not to worry about getting everything to the ship and so forth, but I was a bit sad every time we passed a door with their FE hanging on the hook with goodies hanging out.

Are you wanting just the embroidery done by someone, or do you want the whole thing made and embroidered? We use a lady on ebay, her seller name is bonnysews and I created a whole page around her on the last cruise website we did. I'll give you the link to that old page, but it is old info. If you go to the page and click the link to find her it should still take you to her items - BUT - I think her prices and stuff have changed. I think her FE's are now $24 (?) and I believe embroidery is $5 (?). You can send her a message though and ask, she's really nice

Here's the link to the old FE info I had posted on our last cruise group page:

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. We've done it both ways, I think it just depends on how "all out" we go. The first or second time we did it we went all out - we had an entire extra large suit case dedicated to just FE stuff and it took us 1/2 a day to deliver our first day of stuff - so we spent the rest of the day delivering everything else so we wouldn't have to lose 1/2 a day every day. The next time we skipped it and we were happy we did, we didn't feel obligated to take time out if we were having a blast. We had no kids then though and our daughter will be 2 on the sailing, so we think she might like it. I'm kind of 50/50 on it right now. We'll have to talk about it some more and make a decision. Maybe we'll do it if we just scale back and do 1 gift per cabin (not per person) and only deliver once. If I'm completely honest, I'm also a little put off by the whole alcohol thing. I know I don't have to say yes to it, but it's more of a moral issue for me. I know that other people don't care, but my mind goes straight to thinking about the random 14 or 15 year old wandering the ship who could take (steal) them out of the FE's. I know that's bad on the kid for stealing, but leaving alcohol bottles for kids to find like that is not OK with me. I've done 5 or 6 Disney cruises and never heard of anyone doing this until now. I just don't know if I want to participate in an activity where I know this is going on. It's nothing against anyone else, it's just a moral obligation I feel to not participate. I think that we as adults should realize we're on a family oriented vacation, participating in a family oriented activity, and leaving alcohol where any kid/teen can walk up and take it is not something I think I want to be a part of. Maybe Ryan and Lorelai will participate and I'll just keep myself out of it. Ryan doesn't feel the way I do about it, so he would probably be ok with that. Anyway, I don't know, I have a lot of thinking to do on several levels. It will be a while before we decide, but we'll make a decision fairly soon. {sigh...what to do...what to do...}.

Brunch at Palo, dinner at Palo, so much to look forward to, and another FE participant, yay.
Thank you for the warm welcome! I'm happy to be here! We LOVED our brunch at Palo, especially since we were one of the last tables for the brunch sitting and the server gave us a plate FULL of chocolate covered strawberries to take with us! YUMMY!

I thought I put FE Disney Cruise in my subject, but I just checked my e-mail and didn't get a list, so I guess I will have to try again.


Does anyone know whether or not the 5 night cruise has a character breakfast and/or the Pirate Party? The cruise we were on last year was a 6 night cruise and we were told that those events were only for cruises longer than 5 nights. *fingers crossed*

They are done on the 5 night cruise. Somewhere in the pages of this post is a sample of the schedule and talk about which night Pirate night will be. Character breakfast is on anything above a 4 night (I think) and is based on your dining rotation. The schedule of Pirate night is the only thing we're waiting to find out
