I am loving this report...and I am now hungry...even after just eating dinner.
I can't wait to give these foods a try.

Can I ask what lens you were using when taking your food pictures (it looks like you have a canon SLR)

And how did you become a travel agent. I am a SAHM right now, but I think that my dream job would be a TA, but have no idea about how to even go about becoming one, what if/what kind of classes you need to take.

Oooooooh, loved the knife from animators and the new decor is waaay nicer than on the Magic -always looks cold when you first go in I think because of all the white. Cant wait to try this one out. Menus look good even for picky ole me!

I hope they sell those knives in the gift shop.... along side the carriage bread basket and red pillows.

I hope we can find out if they are going to do a formal or dress up night on the 5 nighters. We are on the 2nd 5 nighter on the Dream; I hope they give us good notice if they are doing it or not.

Yeah, I have a Canon Rebel SLR...6 years old now but still nice I just have the regular lens that came with the camera...just a novice

Michelle approached me a few months ago (can you "approach" someone via email? ) because she had started her own agency and she was looking for people to join up with her that knew Disney, were hard workers, self-starters, were detail-oriented....

and when she couldn't find any of those...she asked me to join up with her

I then had to graduate from the Disney College of Knowledge (online Disney training) and I am now working on the business side of things...phones/email/bus cards/brochures/advertising/web page.

Sorry, it is against DISboard rules to post a link to the agency's website but PM me and I will gladly send it to you and maybe you can ask Michelle more about it

Hope that helped

Just check Ebay, I'm pretty sure they will all be there sooner or later

Can't wait for the Fantasy
That's exactly what we are doing, with a day with Harry Potter, and a couple of days Food and Wining and MNSSHP thrown in there. It's GradTripPalooza for Sarah....gotta love those DVC points.

I can't wait for the Fantasy either! We plan on rebooking onboard, and hoping to renew our vows in St Thomas in 2013 ro 2014 depending on when I finish school. Of course we may end up in Grand Cayman depending on the week.

500 points??? Does this mean you had at least 500 "Diet Coke Break Times" to get all those?

Sorry to hijack Cass.

Cabana's Welcome Aboard Buffet Part 1


I went through the whole line and took some photos....about half way through I realized that I was taking photos of JUST the food and not the little cards that tell you what the dish actually was so....I will just post all the photos I took (even though they are all mixed up) and let you guys figured it out

And yes...some are duplicated because some of the pods have the same stuff!

I have smart readers

Thank you for all the photos!
You've shown everything in such detail.
Never would have thought to get down on the floor for those "under the bed" pics. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Am continuing on with your excellent TR now.....

Editing this to say I don't know how this post got HERE! I was reading your State Room report & after I posted this I was on the food section!! Oh well - I just wanted to thank you for putting such time and effort into this.
