It is!! We actually paid last weekend since it was getting close. We have been booking through Costco the past few years to get their cash back offer and they have you pay a bit early to make sure that everything gets to Disney on time.
too bad i don't drink...i'm sure i'll need one when i pay off for our 3 rooms...LOL

Yes, you are right about next years itinerary. I agree that ours is not the most exciting that we have been on, but it is mainly new ports. So it should be interesting, and we wanted to spend more time in Barcelona as well as visit the war tunnels in Dover and eat amazing fish and chips again. We want our Magic fix as well. She is my favorite since she was where it all began almost nine years ago. I have been waiting for them to go back to Greece, but did not want it to be for a couple of years. We already have our vacations planned through after our son graduates in 2021. :) Your next trip plans sound like a lot of fun. One of these years we want to do a double dip as well.

I hope your planning is going well. We got our tickets already for the evening lighted gardens and fireworks at Versailles because we are only in Paris one Saturday and the next day is the final leg of the Tour de France in Paris. It should be a zoo, but an experience.

How is your treatment? Are you done? Praying for good results.

    I hear you! We actually “lucked out” and had to apply some onboard booking payments because we were just a couple of months off from being able to use them since our last cruise was in May of 2017. Made our payment a little easier.

    i have our package booked for DLP...
    and hotel booked in barcelona...
    and the eurostar from ashford to DLP..
    that's about all i have done so far...
    sounds like the kids are going to book some excursions..
    i don't know if just for the adults, or with the little ones..
    i assume i'll find out at some point.
    we only book at 90 days so not until april...

    Welcome! I love your country and we get to enjoy 9 days in and around Paris after our cruise. We cannot wait! This will be our 9th Disney cruise for our family. Congratulations on being platinum after this one. I would be happy to organize a FE group right here on our meet thread. It will probably end up around 10 cabins or so. I did this for our Iceland and Norway cruise a few years ago. Let me know if you would like me to start a post for FE. Our family would definitely participate. :)

    I would be happy to organize a FE group here if you want. So far it would be your family and my family. There are usually stragglers who end up here looking for a group after the ones on the others have closed. Let me know if you have chosen to contact another group or I can start a list here for our cruise.

    FYI it is myself, Marni, DH Bill, DS Owen who will turn 16 the day before the cruise in Barcelona, and DD Spencer 9.

    Is everyone ready for booking time? Our window opened over the weekend, and even though we had been discussing it for weeks we totally forgot until the next day. We were in California remodeling a rental property to get it ready to sell. It was a crazy week, but that night just got away from us and we realized that we totally forgot to book our port adventures while on the way to the airport. We quickly pulled off the freeway and into a gas station and booked from our iPad. Luckily they were still available to book! We are doing the beekeeper for a day in Cadiz and the Weymouth sailing school in Portland. Best of luck to everyone getting what they want.

    that sounds so much like something i would do..
    i stress in advance, checking and rechecking and then i forget!!
    it happened to me when i had to book ADRs for my daughter and my trip to WDW in august..

    as for the cruise, our window only opens on april 15 (lowly silver cc)...
    i hope things are still available, but it will be whatever it will be..

    did you also check in and get your port arrival time?

    Yes, we did check in later that day. I was worried about our port adventures and figured I could live with a later port arrival time, but we still got 11:00.

    Best of luck when your window opens!

    thanks! i don't know what we're booking yet..
    we're going to have a family meeting to decide LOL..
    i told the kids i need to have suggested times for the meets and things like that, so i know what to book..
    i wish we could know what's available in advance..
    makes it tough to have to wait for your window to open to know what's available...

    If you want to post what you might be interested in, I can take a peek and see if they are showing availability.

    i don't know yet - we haven't had the family meeting..
    probably the kids will book their own excursions...
    i'll probably book the gatherings if they're still available..

    Wow, I only just now found this forum! Hi everyone! I'm traveling with my DH, DD (18), DS (14), DD (11) and my brother. This will be our 7th cruise with Disney. Also, I'm organizing the FE exchanges (we have a family one, an adult one and an ornament one) in the other group and would be happy to add any of you. Last thing - I skimmed this forum and saw discussion about Hawaii. I grew up in Honolulu and can try to answer your questions if you still have any. Happy cruising!

    Glad you finally found us! I am not part of the other group and would love to be added to the family FE. How many in your groups? It is myself, DH, DS 16, and DD 9. Please let me know current info for rooms that would be part of our FE group. Thanks!

    Hi - I'm happy to add you though you should know that we have 4 complete family groups already (8 cabins in each group) and I would be starting you in a new group (you're the first in that new group). We have a cutoff date of June 8th for all the exchange groups. We may see more people sign up in the next few weeks. You can PM me your names, cabin number and favorite characters. I'll keep you updated when new cabins sign up in your group.

    Thanks for your quick response. Maybe, I will hold off since we would be the only ones. For some reason, I had been indecisive on doing FE this cruise, but when I saw your post I thought, “Why not?” Would it be too much to let me know if there ends up being enough people for another group? I can message you again when it gets closer to the end of the month. Thanks again. I hope your trip planning is going well.

    Yes absolutely! I'll be in touch. Also if you are interested in the other exchanges, we need 2 more families for the ornament exchange (6 families total, you give one ornament to each cabin) and 6 more for the adult exchange (8 cabins total).
