Our final dinner on the Magic. At least this one didn’t take as long as the other night. During dinner, one of our tablemates asked “Did anyone see the shuttle go up?” THAT’S WHAT THAT BRIGHT LIGHT WAS!?!?! AWESOME! I just couldn’t believe that we could see it from that far away. We were located just south of Freeport. That’s a long way to see it, but it was a beautiful night out.

My wife and I had committed that there were certain things we had to do while we were onboard the ship. We accomplished one of those things at dinner on Friday night. Mickey bars. One of the ladies at our table heard us ordering them and squealed in delight. “We can order Mickey bars in here?” And a third one was ordered for our table. Now I, of course, proceeded to do what most husbands do and once again managed to embarrass DW. By the end of my Mickey bar, it was like Homer Simpson had joined our party. I had chocolate shell and vanilla ice cream all over my face and had managed to look like a 2 year old. But it was good.

It’s getting late on the cruise. We’re down to the last few moments. It’s time for the farewell party. We head down to the atrium and start taking a final look at the characters. I got a few princess photos, one of which is actually rated PG-13. Belle is hot. DW also got a picture with Brent. Why? Cuz I made her.

One last spin through the shops giving my wife a chance to increase the size of our stateroom account, a task she is more than happy to participate in. Then, we accomplish another first which we had promised to do. We headed up to the Cove Café for some hot tea. They had the Masala tea we had gotten from Palo, so we both sipped on that while relaxing in the nearly empty café. We’re just trying to milk it now. Every moment we can get. Every little thing we can think of that we still have left to do, we’re doing.

Finally, it’s one last trip to Rockin Bar D where we meet up with one set of our tablemates. Problem is that the music is blaring and we can’t hear what each other is saying. So, we all go grab one last drink and head up to the top deck. There we sit until 1 AM just chatting about our lives, our week, our mutual fascination with all things Disney. Then, we realize that we’ve both got long drives home the next day and part ways. One last moment on the verandah while the ship is out at sea where my wife and I toast to what a great week it’s been. Then it’s off to bed to prepare for the sad journey home.
