  1. White Oak Travel Services, Inc is doing business as Wish Upon A Star Cruises now.
  2. to get that 1/2 deposit that Disney Cruise Lines is offering!
  3. The commercials were horrible, the Falcons blew a big lead because they got conservative and let the Patriots steal the game. Thank goodness for Lady Gaga, who put on a good show.
  4. And finally the Main Street Electrical Parade will only be there until June 18, 2017.
  5. Which one will win the oscar? I have seen both multiple times and can't decide.
  6. Have you seen the movies? We have seen a few, but want to see a few more that are oscar contenders. Which movies have you seen?
  7. Love this show! It is so well done it is amazing. NPH is an amazing actor and he produced this show. What do you think of it? If you are not watching it, you should be!
  8. Saw this musical today and absolutely love it. Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone are fantastic! I highly recommend this film if you love musicals, a great storyline and Emma and or Ryan, or both together.
  9. And today I realized I want DCC - Disney Cruise Club. I would buy in for sure!
  10. DVC

    Tell me members, why should I join DVC? Cons: We like maid service Expensive We prefer to cruise Pro's: ???
  11. Rumor has it that Rivers of light will be coming back for the summer. Who is excited for this? We are cruising in October, and I hope it will still be showing when we are there! What do you think?
  12. For Christmas I got the much wanted Amazon Echo and I love her. Alex is great. But I asked her to play a song today and she could only play a 'sample' of the song. I was a little stupefied because I thought I had access to ALL amazon music. So I want to Amazon.com and found out that no, I was seriously lacking in the music department. But for only 79.00 I am now the 'owner' of 10's of thousands of songs. No more 'samples' for me. So what am I currently listening to? Right now it is Green Day - the complete catalog. Earlier I listened to Led Zepplin. Man I love this. I may not be a foodie, but I am a music person. What are you listening to right now?
  13. When I got back to the hotel room after the party we had to call the front desk to find out what time to be at the lobby in the morning (11) for our cruise and what time they were picking up our luggage (8), so I went right to bed, knowing that I would be the one to get up in the morning at 8 since Andy is used to staying up late. On the morning of the 17th I woke at 745 and quickly got dressed so I would be ready when the knock on the door came. Soon they did come and 4 of our bags were then taken so they could be brought to our room on the ship. We were left with one suitcase for beer, chocolate milk and water and a few backpacks. We had a lazy morning after that, just hanging out in our room, they kept knocking to see when we were leaving, I kept telling them 1045 (check out time is 11) and yet they kept knocking. We finally left at about 10:40 to make our way to the lobby. I was so excited. Not our first cruise by far, but you'd never know that by how excited I was. When we got to the lobby we decided to get some breakfast so we went to the bakery and picked up a few blueberry muffins. They looked real good but were very dry. A few minutes after I finished my muffin, the Cruise people showed up and said the bus would be arriving soon. But it wasn't soon, it was about 30 minutes later when it finally arrived. On the bus they showed Annie, and I had not seen this version so I was very happy just watching the movie. I was so entranced with the movie I missed it. Yep I missed the first view of the Fantasy, our home for the next 7 nights! But once I could see it I never took my eyes off of it. I love cruising, it is my favorite form of travel. Once we got to the port we quickly got off the bus and were on our way through security. The line was short and we were soon in line for check-in, with the standard 'are you sick' form which asks if you've thrown up in the past 24 hours and a few other questions. Flu stuff mostly. I filled it out and waiting impatiently in line. Soon it was our turn and we got to check in. We gave the Cast Member our form that I got from online check-in, signed in all appropriate places. We were given a few copies of the Navigator, our room number, our lanyards because we were silver Castaway Club members and headed through the Mickey opening and onto the ship! By the time we got onto the ship it was almost 1:30. We were able to go directly to our cabin, so we did that and found it full. I had gotten the Christmas decorations and the Star Wars decorations and both were hanging in the room. We moved a few hanging items so we could walk around and were so happy to be home! Our luggage wasn't there yet so we headed on up to get some lunch. We ate then toured the kids clubs. Because I am a travel agent I was able to take pictures in the kids clubs. After touring the kids clubs we decided to go see if our luggage was there and it wasn't in front of our cabin, but inside. Alex had put it inside for us. We unpacked and got ready for muster, then the Sail Away Party. As usual muster was boring, and everyone and their brother was trying to go upstairs for the Sail Away Party. Andy was the first to make it and found a fairly good spot, where we could see some of the stage and all of the screen. Amazingly, this was our 5th cruise and we had never seen this show. I enjoyed it this time but probably wouldn't do it again. Yeah the picture shows we had a good view. After Sail Away we went to see if luggage was delivered and sure enough it was. Alex had taken it inside the cabin. So, we unpacked and prepared for me to go to trivia at 7:45. I knew where to be for dinner so was on my way. The first night I was alone for trivia and did miserable. The room was packed. I then met the boys for dinner and was so happy to see one of my best friends, Kristin and her family at dinner. Marissa was 14 and Chris her husband. I sat across from Chris while Kristin sat across from Andy. After dinner we had plans to go to the Tube for Match your Mate. Yep, I talked Andy into doing this again, and again we lost. We have been married almost 30 years, it's hard to remember the early years. It was fun because I met Joshie, our club host who was totally awesome. But it had been a long day, so after Match your Mate it was time for bed for us.
  14. I am thinking of buying a membership into the Rainforest room for our next cruise, and trying to decide if I want to do that the day I have my massage. I have heard the rainforest room is wonderful. Please tell me about it and post your pictures.
  15. I will start. I am old. 50 and will be 51 next month. I have been married almost 30 years to the love of my life. We have a son named Alex who is also the love of my life. Then there are the dogs, Amber and Pixie who I love, but the cats, oh the cats I love dearly. You see, while I love ALL animals, I am a cat person and we have 4 cats to prove it. We would have more, but one is a nasty girl who hates everyone but me and that is not acceptable. So when she dies, I will become that crazy cat lady down the street. Right now, I am just that crazy Disney lady from down the street. I collect Disney, I visit Disney as often as possible, and I specialize in Disney as a Travel Agent. Fortunately my husband and son, while they are dog people, they still have the love of Disney that I have, making all of our Disney vacations totally possible. When not traveling or working on other peoples travels, I am cat sitting in my hometown. I have a few friends that I trust with my life, Jody, a neighbor friend is one, and @Disneyfanatic is another. So hopefully you will meet her soon.
