We skipped the Captain's Gala on semi-formal night and did Palo's instead.

We are not "lobstah" people and nothing else on the menu really floated our boat, so to speak, so we decided to take off that night from the regular rotational.

Might reconsider that decision for the next cruise if there is chocolate lava cake involved!

I agree- best DCL dessert ever- I liked it even more than Palo's souffle!

After dinner. Around 10 I guess. The more I think about it, the more I realize it must have been the night before, though.

Tammie, that is *SO*my plan! 2031 can't come soon enough, LOL!!!



LMAO I bought the exact same one. They had white, blue, red and yellow. I wanted white but I am very picky and I want as many of the pictures on the design to show neatly and spaced as well as possible, so I went back to TK several times to pick through the ones they had, but I never could find a good one on white (they even brought more out from the back for me). The purses are only in white and I wanted both a wristlet and a purse but had to ditch the idea of the purse because I went over budget on pictures in Shutters and Ron hates how I am always buying expensive purses yet only carry a laptop bag or a diaper bag..(thank GOD those days are soon going to come to an end!!!)..so there was a perfect yellow one there, and Ron said he liked the one Ellen had, so that was that.

E-Now we're twins!!!!
Cool! I like being twins with you!! I love the yellow- so happy, that color!

We went to Palo on this night our first cruise, so we didn't want to miss it this time- especially because in the past two years Tyler has become a BIG fan of lobstah!

The most Magical Moment EVAAAAARRRR!!!

We woke up on Friday to this....



We were docking at Castaway Cay....always the best day, but on the 7 night cruise, also the most bittersweet, because it is the last day as well. They were obviously still busy getting the dock ready for the two new ships, the first of which would be docking here for the first time in about 2 months. We had a quick breakfast at Topsiders, before heading out for the day. Almost immediately, I persuaded the family to pose with Daisy. Because there was really no line, and that is the ONLY way they will humor me and take a picture with a character anymore!





Daisy was SOOO cute, I was so happy we stopped- she was SOOOO excited about my sundress, she made it very clear that she REALLY liked the way I went to the beach! Of course, she also wanted me to notice her dress, which I loved, too, and made very clear to her.



We walked on towards the family beach, and I was on a roll, so we got some more pics- with me actually IN them!







As you can see from the photos, it wasn't the clearest of days...it was definitely cooler than where we had been in the Caribbean, and it was cloudy, but....it wasn't RAINING and we were ON CASTAWAY CAY, and that's the MOST important thing, as far as we're concerned! We saw Pluto, and once again, I was able to easily convince the boys to stop-



Hmmm...notice Tyler's lanyard? Under his arm like that? Hmmmmmm......



We saw this Newlywed couple and yelled Congratulations, but they really look very preoccupied, don't they?



There was so much that was new on CC since our last visit, and we couldn't WAIT to check it all out! So we stopped at this sign to contemplate the best place to park it for the day,





Pods & Timmy walked ahead...and Tyler screamed....

OH MY GOD!!! I LOST MY CARD!!!!!

Pods & Tim were very far ahead at this point, and they didn't hear me when I yelled to them- but really, I was a little freaked out, because we had finally, for the first time, decided to give Tyler charging privaleges on his KTTW card, and all I could think was that somewhere on the beach someone was having a GREAT time buying multiple rounds of Konk Koolers and BIG beach towels for their favorite 50 people. We backtracked a bit, scanning the ground...

After walking back some, Tyler gave up, he said we're never going to find it!! It could be anywhere!! So, I decided we should find a CM and report the card missing.

I have to say, I passed about 10 CMs walking around, and after checking them out from head to toe, decided none of them was smart enough for the task. Seriously! I really thought that! The words, "She's just not up for it" crossed my mind on all of them, although they all looked perfectly wonderful!

I guess card locator is a very specific profile.

I ended up at a little hut, and chose this one CM- he looked juuuuust right! Seriously- I waited for him over the other CM because he just looked right to me. We explained the whole thing, how we know we lost it somewhere between Daisy Duck and the sea shell store, and how I was worried because it had charging privaleges (to which Tyler was like, "It did?") and he just said, don't worry, no one will charge anything, someone will turn it in, people turn them in all day long, people lose them all the time, I even found one already today, and I just got here, but unless your name's Tyler, I didn't find yours....

WHAT DID YOU SAY??????????

OMG, what are the odds- we walked up to the ONE PERSON on the WHOLE OF CASTAWAY CAY that could ACTUALLY, REALLY help us.
CLIFFORD- uber-super CM!



We were FREAKING out!!! That was the CRAZIEST coincidence !!!! I was screaming, "THIS IS THE MOST MAGICAL MOMENT EVAAAAAARRRR!!!!!!" And Clifford was like, "Yea...it is!! Wow, what are the odds? That is the coolest thing! I can't believe it!!"

What a great experience...for us. For Pods...not so much. In his world, he was walking to the beach with his family, and then he just was walking to the beach with one of his family.

OOPS.

He got over it though...it was a pretty impressive magical moment, after all.

Wow sounds like Clifford is THE MAN!!! I would've freaked too if I were in your situation....lost card w/ charging privies. I am always double checking DH at the parks to make sure he has his KTTW card. The man is constantly losing his keys so I have to worry a lil...haha

Well, I hope if your DH's KTTW card ever goes missing, you will be fortunate enough to have Clifford find it for you!

Thanks- I got my dress in a Surf Shop last Spring in the OBX. I'll be missing that vacation this year, we are staying put for Spring Break (although I may be tempted to drive down to Washington for a couple of days to see the Cherry Blossoms with the boys.....).

The Flying Dutchman is gone now, right? Glad I got to see her one last time! And I'm with ya...I would totally love to yo-ho-yo-ho with Captain Jack on that island!

Pluto IS a good doggie!!

Aww you guys got some really great pics!!! We rode the tram so we didn't get those opportunities.

What time did you guys get out on the island? It looks pretty early, but we were out there before the wedding (we watched it, LOL).

Ah, where was Clifford when we needed him? Djd you know Ron lost his card too that morning? It got sucked up by Pelican Plunge (which they said happens countless times per day). They didn't find his though, so we had to wait to go to Guest Services onboard to get him a new one.

Tracy did you know it is gone now? They dismantled it Like a week after we were there!!!! I had no idea they were preparing to do that, but yes, she was looking rough, especially on the backside.

Nooooo I didn't know that It was just then that I saw that picture and then glanced over and thought wow...that looks kinda weathered (like me by oh around Labor day )

It was so neat to see it "live" and in pictures

So did the couple get married on CC or on the ship?

Castaway Cay Day

KTTW cards present and accounted for, we marched over to have a look at Pelican Plunge. The beach there was already too crowded to have a seat, but that made the family beach pretty open so we were easily able to snag some seats over there. First, though, we sent the boys off to slide. There was quite a wait, but they were determined, of course! Sorry for the blurry pics, my water camera was not so great this morning-











The boys were pretty chilly after that slide, but they said it was really fun- just really cold! They preferred the dark, completely enclosed tube to the other one- it is VERY fast! I walked around a little bit-









There were really alot of changes on CC, and I was so excited that we were lucky enough to see so many of them open! After a little lounging around, I ordered a Konk Kooler from a passing server-



It was too sweet for me, but I can see why people who like sweet drinks would enjoy this! I continued explorirg.....

















I think it began to sprinkle a bit, so we thought we'd go play some games over at In Da Shade Games....



They shot some hoops...



Played a quick game of chess...







Cont'd next post...
