I know it is self centered to say so, but I hope we still find a way to do it.. I dont think I will ever convince my mom or my hubby to go on a Disney cruise with me and I dont wanna go on one by myself, so my nephew and niece are my best chance.. (and getting to spend almost a week with them, being a big kid too? that would be awesome.
That does sound like fun. Even if you have to wait a year or so for the baby to get a few years older, the others will still be little and fun to play with...

thats the issue.. they were waiting till one kid ws old enough and had a second, now waiting for both of them to be old enough and a third one is on the way.. you see how this is going right? hehe

Hmmm, well until they get that figured out ;) you might have to wait a few more years, and a few more years, and a few more years :roll: :lol:

I totally would!! I'm watching for my discounts to come out for the Dream. Now that the Fantasy is here, we can expect rates potentially as low as- wait for it- $25 a night. :shock: :D THAT is what I mean by ridiculous discounts.

Wait... 25 bucks a night?!?! I was talking with my mom.. I think she might be interested as well, could you get that rate for three people or would it just be for you and I? I am not sure what your rules are.

My mom and I were thinking... maybe October-ish? that was when my mom and I took our Royal Caribbean Cruise. that is after the peak season but not too cool.

Maybe we need to start talking elsewhere if we seriously wanna plan this? We can go PMs here, or email, or I have AIM and YIM and Skype as well. :)

Seriously Soarin, $25 a night???? :shock: That is incredible!!! Disney cruises are very expensive! But, well worth it, their boats blow all other cruise lines away!

But that's $25/night for the Dream, not the Fantasy, right? Still, $25/night for ANY Disney Cruise is great discount!

Yeah, I don't know when the Fantasy rates will drop. The newness has yet to wear off, of course.
