I got tired from reading about that day! But it sounds a lot like us ...... we take it real slow the first few days, then start cramming in EVERYTHING and EVEN a little MORE into the last few!
But I am impressed ..... you really did very well there!

I can't believe what all happened during that first cruise day! The ever so late arriving breakfast, bell services being late, a lost laptop, a crushed finger!
Yikes! Hope it got much better from there!

Oh, and just one more question. Did I read that correctly, that you can leave some of your luggage at WDW while you're on a cruise, if you go there again after the cruise?
Last year we left quite a few things in the car while we were on the cruise, but we won't keep the car this summer, so the option of leaving it at the resort (as we are going back to the same one anyway) would be great! Thanks!!!

Hi Ellen, I just don't get around to comment on all my subscription (and even less to post an update on my TR...) but I wanted to say that I am still reading along and enjoying your TR very much! What a horrible day you had on that day... I hope the rest of the trip the good luck returned to your family!

you have to frame that xray somehow , no??? put it next to the disney cells on the wall??? another disney memory?? maybe not, but mark my words, someday he will want to hang it on some wall, somewhere.

hope all the bad karma is behind you and smooth sailing ahead.

ps. still just love your trip reports!
Yea- I DO need to frame that xray! So funny! Poor Tim, though. I knew it really, really must have been painful, though- a few years ago he tripped falling up the outside steps- hit his head and had a gash on his head (so weird, head injuries- it looked like someone stamped a circle out of his forehead!)- but he was so calm! This was the opposite- but it really looked so much worse than it actually was, thank-goodness!

ps. still just love you tellin me you love my TRs.

If I'd seen your family in those matching shirts, you would have had a tough time getting rid. It'd be like being pursued by paparazzi! Podsnel, caught at every turn! (Sorry for the mixed metaphors!)

Which is all to say, in I hope a humourous way (extra "u", I'm Canadian) that I sooo love your trip reports.

We cruise next in March. Thanks to you, the excitement is totally ramped up!
Okay- my head is now so big there will be no livin' with me at ALL anymore!!
Thanks for all the HUGE compliments- I am so flattered, and I so get it- my favorite TR writer (when I first started DISing) was Zweihund- if I saw that she was going on a cruise, I would really try to think of ways I could get on the ship when she was! I just loved her TRs sooooooo much, they were very, VERY entertaining to me. She hasn't written one in a long time, but you should search out the old ones and check them out- hers are 10,000 times better than anything I could hunt and peck out on my laptop. Wait- scratch that! I don't want to lose my biggest fan!

Have an EXCELLENT time on your cruise in March- it looks like you are going on vacation for a long time- so much fun!!

Don't pass go. Just keep bringing it on.

I am so glad though that Timmy's finger wasn't broke or anything. That was just the icing on the cake of a great day. Hope he is getting along fine now. And that the rest of the trip isn't like that.
Hey Chris- I have to agree- it was just the CRAZIEST way to start the cruise!! One thing after another- it was EXHAUSTING!!! If we had not had the kids with us, I am sure we would have just bellied up to the bar and never left! But don't worry!! We ended up having a WONDERFUL time on DCL- how could we not?

I will second that... it was the first thing my wife and I did when we got on the ship!!
That's pretty funny! Yes, that would be the Promenade Lounge....maybe next time we'll see you there!

Okay, so glad to hear that the foodie you are was happy with the meal. We are sailing in April, and I am so hoping the food will still be delish! I'm curious to hear what you thought about the wines offered. Our tablemates on our last DCL had the wine package and then chose "Fine California Wines" that we can get in the grocery store here for $3.99. We couldn't burst their bubble.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE PODS FAMILY!!!
Yes, we had MUCH better luck the rest of the cruise!! Not to worry!

And we got the deluxe wine pkg- mostly we drank Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc(one of my favorites- Kim's my GIRL!) and for red we LOVED the King's Estate Pinot Noir- we also had that at Artist's Point in September, and I really enjoyed it (it's from your state, in case you weren't aware). Another night we had Santa Margherita PG, which I normally don't like ( I like Peter Zemmer PG or Teiffenbrunner or Alois Lageder) because it's not produced like the other wines- it's a HUGE process involving PG grapes from many. many, many vineyards- not the same, KWIM? And we also had a Chianti (Ducale?) one night. I didn't like a lot on the standard wine pkg, so we went for the premium. I know on another night we tried another red, but can't think what now. But I enjoyed them, absolutely!!

And MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU, TOO!!!!

Well, Karin, you are so busy updating two TRs at once, I am happy you say hello at all!! You'll be getting a break for Christmas, right?

Well, I got tired from LIVING that day! But it was fun, and we felt like we really accomplished a LOT at the end of it.

YES YOU CAN!!!!Isn't that awesome? You leave the luggage with Bell Services- they will even transfer it to another hotel ( like our last cruise, we stayed at AKV before, BWV after- our luggage was waiting for us at BWV when we checked in that day). It is an EXCELLENT perk Disney offers, I think. So in your case, they will just hold it for you at...where are you staying again?....and it will be waiting for you when you return.

Hey stranger! I was so happy to see you had posted when I turned on my computer this morning! I'm sure you are super-busy, and I am glad you found the time to say hello- and not to worry- our vacation will improve with the next installment, which I should get to later today.

Is that OUR Jerry?

You will all be happy to hear that the bad luck portion of our TR has concluded, and it is time to move on to happier times! I was REALLY looking forward to going to Rockin Bar D on this first night of the cruise- if we could ever get out of Animators- because on the last cruise I had missed Magic Quest and Match Your Mate (on the last cruise we missed MQ entirely, and arrived just as they were choosing the couples for MYM- I was feeling kind of shy- yes, it's true, even I am shy sometimes- and I had this really strong feeling that we were going to be picked to play. Mostly because the MC kept on pointing to me. ). I REALLY wanted to see these shows this time, and I REALLY wanted to be in them this time- of course, this time, that wasn't going to happen. But that's fine- we had an awesome night with Jen & Ron laughing at all those people who did get picked!! I kind of thought they were already there when we arrived, but Jen's TR says they joined us, and my memory that night is somewhat clouded- it was a heck of a day at sea, sir- so whichever it was, just know that we were all very happy sitting together and had we gotten there on time we SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO would have won that MQ! It is one hilarious show!!





They had a dance off to pick the winners, and one of them was a guy named Jerry. Jen & I look at each other, and we say....JERRY? Is that OUR Jerry? Sure enough it was- Sarge219 from our Cruise meet thread. He would be the one in blue striking a pose-



I'm sure I don't know what THIS was all about, but you can see Fastpaks & his wife Amy laughin at him-



Time for Jerry to move it and shake it!!





I can't really say what exactly he was doin over there to that guy, but the audience looks pretty impressed, and if you ask me, he should have won! Next time I think we will skip dinner just so we can get there early and throw Pods up on stage in a lacy bra and heels- and I'll be sure to bring my tripod and video for THAT display! Next was Match Your Mate- unfortunately, Pods & I have been married too long or not enough for that game- we got laughed at for trying to be the older married couple at almost 25 years. Anyway, that was pretty amusing- the couple who won I thought was very entertaining, and I kept running into them in port during the week. Funny, funny stuff!

When it was over, we decided we needed to say goodnight- it had been a really long day. But first, apparently I had a love fest with Jen in the hallway-



Oh, I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Weiner....was it already Halloween?



We got the boys out of Edge, much to their dismay, and hit the sack-



we had TOT tomorrow and Key West!! Happy Halloween everyone!

I saw Jen & family sitting a few tables behind us- they looked like they were having a great time! They also had food, which made us very jealous. But, we waited patiently-
Hehe- sorry we didn't see you guys at all that night! Of course we had that silly little thing you sometimes get in restaurants to distract you ....the food! And apparently ya'll didn't!!!


Quote:
And Timmy started to get cranky. And put his head on the table. ANd I waved down the assistant server and asked if there was a problem- no, no problem. Great- then can you please bring my son some food- because the kid has had quite a day, and he really needs some FOOD! And about 5 minutes after that, she brought out his chicken fingers-

And Timmy didn't get trees. Did they wait so long that the kitchen was all out of the broccoli, and they had to open a can of succotash for him!?!?

Quote:
And we looked around us and started deciding what looked good for dessert, because that's what everyone else was having-


And then the show began!


And then the dining room began to clear out- we saw Jen & Ron etal leave, along with many others behind them.

Are you kidding?!?! You guys hadn't gotten FOOD yet?!?!? AFTER the show!!!!???? OMG! I knew we were moving along, but that's just ridiculous!!!!

Okay....that seems about right today....
So glad this craziness is almost OVER!

I got to cruise with her and be in her TR and you di---i---int!

Hehe, I'm starting to feel kinda famous being in all these kick-butt TR's. (could I really be a TR star?!?!? ......)

It isn't easy being a star though, sometimes it's stressful. You have to worry about what incriminating photos might show up in random places. FOR INSTANCE, I thought for sure the Nachi tequila shots pic was taken with my camera but it must have been yours, either that or its one of those that got sucked into memory card limbo, and I surely hope that was not the case, as that was a moment that needs to be frozen in time. LMAO!

Yep, you guys were definitely there first, I don't start getting foggy until after the martini.

COULD YOU IMAGINE if we had been on a team, and Jonathan and Amy, oh man we would have rocked the house!! Mr. I-already-magically-have-on-size-15-heels-so-my-day-job-must-be-a-drag-queen-winner would have been put to SHAME!!!

Did I know that? Did you trust me? It's funny cause doing the lanyards helped me put faces to names to a point, but it was such a crazy whirlwind that I got some of them wrong. In Cayman, Peggy (Pegthelawyer) asked me which one was Sheri, well I accidentally told her Sheri was Kim. (ok well they DID have similar hairstyles.... ) Of course she went right up to Kim right in front of me and called her Sheri....OMG I'da liked to have died.

Oh and I forgot to add Ron's opinion on the Xray. He said it was obvious it was done by someone who doesn't do many Xrays (of course you have to keep in perspective that he does hundreds a day), and that it was unusual positioning but he was impressed that they actually had a digital Xray system onboard.

I told him he should have posted that but he said apparently he already posted a reply. I should have logged in as him just to post this. Ah the joys of a dual-Diser family!

Nenner1...YOU DA BOMB!!!!!!!

So we were up....not so very early. Actually, we all really slept in, missing our Character Breakfast at Parrot Cay and I think we just made it to breakfast at Topsiders- where I took no pictures, but we enjoyed bagels and smoked salmon, Mickey Waffles, potatoes and (my favorite) grapefruit sections- I just love it when someone else has done all the work on the grapefruit for me!! Pods got an omelet at the station almost every day, as did Tyler. The thing I had forgotten, and I forgot this everyday except for one, was I forgot to order a pot of room service coffee for morning delivery. That was one of my favorite things on the last cruise, the luxury of having room service deliver coffee to me every morning, to sip on the balcony before I went to breakfast. I am STILL kicking myself over that!! UGH!! Anyway...we had signed up on our thread to Trick or Treat this morning with a HUGE crew of other DIS families- and, God Bless her, Jen had organized EVERYTHING- she bought all the candy & hauled it on the ship, she made up the scavenger hunt around the ship including all the poems for the kids to figure out, she copied all these poems onto scrolls, she divided all the kids into four teams, she handed out the first scrolls to all the kids as they checked in and she organized all the adults into seperate candy stations....

Is it any wonder, every person on our thread thinks Jen is the GREATEST??? Anyway....here she is, working away AGAIN to make everyone's Halloween EXTRA special!!



I was going to be at one of the stations, but then asked Pods to man it so I could ToT with the boys- who were wearing their shirts sans 'staches. Our first stop? Pods up by the Goofy pool!









Next we went waaaaaay down...Deck 2 or 3 maybe? As we got there, look who was walking around!



This is one of the many things I love about DCL- the characters are on the cruise- but, I mean, they are ON the cruise! Just walking around. Sometimes it feels like they are on vacation with YOU! So cool!



The boys really got into figuring out the scavenger hunt clues- it was awesome!! Next, we were back up stairs ( I have to say- after the ToT I felt like I could pretty much eat and drink anything I wanted all day- that was a LOT od stairs!)



I wish I had a better pic of that guy- his hat totally cracked me up!! Then we were outside, on a GORGEOUS day-



We were getting closer to Key West! Then up to Deck 10-



And we ended on the Secret Verandah deck-





It was pretty hot out there on that AFT deck. Makes me a little nervous for our cruise this summer on RCCL Explorer- we have a HUGE Aft balcony, and I'm worried it will be too hot to enjoy.....I guess we'll see.....

This was an EXCELLENT activity- all of the volunteers at the stations were lots of fun handing out the candy to the kids, and Jen- you DA BOMB, GIRLFRIEND!!! We can't possibly ever thank you enough for all you did- it was an entertaining ToT for every kid there, even my too-cool-for-school 13 year old. YAY JEN!!!!!!

When we were done, it was time for lumch as we were docking in Key West. The boys decided to grab something from Plutos on their way to Edge, while Pods & I opted for some sandwiches and fruit in the window at Goofy's Galley.







I got an eggplant portobello panini and it was still cold in the middle after they grilled it, which kind of turned me off (this never happened the rest of the week with the paninis, they usually were all melty and yum), so we decided to check out Topsider's Buffet....







Cont'd next post....

Okay, Ellen...thanks to the overnight extreme illness I had all of Sunday night through Monday morning, I had two sick days from school and am now all caught up on your TR!! Gotta look for the silver linings!

Anyway, I can't believe what an awful departure day you had!! I would have been a crying mess! I am just picturing you all upset at guest services, when suddenly Pods comes by with a screaming Timmy! My God, what you must have felt at that moment! I don't know how you held it together! We spent a little time with the cruise doctor, too, if you remember! Missed our Cozumel day because of it.

But, so glad things seem to be turning around and can't wait to hear the rest!

Lunch on Halloween

More lunch pics from Topsider's-



We had no problem finding a table outside, and while I ate this-

By the way- that Mango Soup was positively yummy!


I was looking at this-



What a GORGEOUS day! I kept saying that because the forecast for this cruise? Well...it was pretty much rain and more rain every day. There was a huge storm which was all the way south of us, but it was supposed to make for a week of baaaad weather. So, even if we have a few clouds? I say- the weather's GORGEOUS!! We finished eating, and went to get the boys. But we already knew what they were going to say....

"NO WAY, JOSE!! WE'RE NOT GETTIN' OFF THIS SHIP!!"





And I have to say, it was ok with us. The other ports? They're coming with us. But Key West? Well...we saw the Southernmost Point last time, we drove an electric car last time, we had ice cream & key lime pie last time...so, they were done. They are too old for the Pirate museum, and too young for the other...ummm...sights. Ok kids- have fun in Edge and try not to miss us too much!! We'll be watching football at Sloppy Joes and Margaritaville!



Up next....Key West fun!

Hi Ellen, Reading through your TR has me wanting to get back on that big boat and do it all again. I was pleased to see Sarge in your post (we missed that event) b/c the only time I ran into him was in the wee hours of the morning up at the beverage stand for much needed caffeine. I poured myself a heaping cup of java (it had been a sleepless night w/ Hope's asthma) and I looked up from stirring in cream when someone leaned over across the coffee cups and said "wake up Tink.". No kidding, first time I met Sarge.

I loved our first DCL cruise and a huge part of it was b/c of the people on board. Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!!

Beth

Wow, I was REALLY behind! Sorry to hear about your laptop!!! At least they found it! Also sorry to hear about your son's poor finger! Doesn't seem to slow him down too much in the next posts though. Can't wait to read about KW!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas this weekend!
