Welcome to the DIS/DVC S.S. Member Cruise 2006 Website!
For anyone new to these events, Welcome Aboard!
For the repeaters, Welcome Back! Glad you want to go around again with us. :)
Now if you have not been on one before, you really should familiarize yourself with the last ones, as it will answer questions of what to expect.
Here's a link to the report I wrote on the first entire ship Member Cruise:

Due to the efforts of David/Ohanafamily, we have some info!
And, some info on Travel Insurance.
Click here to go to a post on the Dis with good Travel Insurance info!
David called Travelguard, Here is how they compute the cost..
Take the number of points, multiply it by $5 a point. Take 5.15% of this value and that is the basic premium. For the Medical, add $3.65 per person per day.
So, for example a cat 5 room for 2 is 400 points. The insured value is $2000. The premium would be like $103. without the medical...

Hi, everyone, my name is Cindy (cgcw which stands for C(indy), G(ary), C(ameron), W(alker) = my family) and I’m working on linking EARLY seating for dinner. That way, DIS’ers can sit together in one area of the dining room and have fun as a group. A great big extension of the camaraderie that comes from posting on our thread. Some of us dined together on prior cruises and it’s nice to know who your dining partners are going to be, rather than leaving the decision up to DCL.
It's been a while since I posted the early dining information. For those new to our thread, prior to sailing I have contacted Disney Cruise Lines to request that the DIS'ers listed below be seated together for dinner. Here's who I have as requesting to be linked. This is EARLY dining only, IIRC, Tina (tinkerbelle77) was going to try and coordinate a group for late dining.
Here's our group:
iluvdisney & Karenny
curtdennis/4gusgus & figaro
Diana Lyn/Bruce the Shark
Fireplug/Jeepers Lady/Karen & Dale
tiger lily 03
cquick (waitlisted for early dining)
Final seating has been submitted to DCL and approved.
ATTENTION PARENTS WITH KIDS CRUISERS!!!!
Hey everyone! I'm posting in RED, so hopefully everyone sees this!
Since Diana is busy with the t-shirts, Stacy(Stitch #1) and I are going to take over the Kids List. If you have a child going on SSMC06 and would like them included on the kids list, please send me a PM.
We're getting ready to make the deadline for the kid's list. Below is the current kid's list. Can everyone PLEASE look over the list and make sure that we have included everyone? And, if you know someone that has either cancelled the cruise, or someone that is a friend that has not added their kids to the list, please send me a PM. We (Stacy, Diana and I) don't want any children to be left out of this. Thanks!!!

Commemorative shirts and more for the Cruise!
From Diana Lyn:
Great news friends!! The store is open for business!!
I just want to go over a couple of things before you start shopping:
Last cruise we did a photo gallery where members could see those who they were sailing with, when and where they joined DVC and their cabin numbers. We also did a mini navigator that we gave out on the cruise that listed cabn numbers for our members. Based on feedback we received on the cruise we would like to expand both of these.
We would like to coordinate all the information upfront. New this year to the gallery will be birthdays and anniversaries. Gail has voluneteered to keep an eye on these and help us celelbrate on the thread. Also new this year will be notating up front if you want to be part of the buttons and mini-navigator. For real names we are asking for full names but will only post your first name on the grid. Tell us what name you want on your button and buttons are for everyone - not just the DIS members of your family.
And this is probably going to be the more common DIS meet. Everyone should be able to get to this one ok. We can try for some kind of group shot if everyone is game. We can also meetup there after the lifeboat drill for the sailaway party. The reason for the main meet to be before, is the sailaway party will be mobbed and VERY loud! Not the best time for everyone to get to know each other.
Here's a bunch of clipart to use for different things, such as magnetic doorsigns or such.

No, this is not an aquatic life cosmetic accessory. What they are is you have an item called a 'message fish' on the wall right next to your cabin door so people have a place to leave you a message. It can hold paper, or an envelope or such, but that's about it. So to make more room, people have come up with a hanger to hang on the fish with pockets to hold more stuff. Sometimes sold as a wall hanging to hold greeting cards. First became a big thing on the 14-day West Repo cruise, and it's been adopted by this group as well. The best source for Disney themed ones is an Ebayer named Mrs. Lips.
