The tour looks great. We did it about 10-12 years ago and I don't remember seeing any of the state rooms or the other places you went. When we did the tour they showed how the ship had been used during WWII for military service. Maybe we should try that again for something new.
I'm glad you had fun at the park and finally got to see Fantasmic! I really prefer DL's version just because it doesn't have a dedicated theater. The way that the show comes together out of elements of the park rides and areas that guests use and walk through during the day, and how it transforms at night is one of the most amazing parts of the show.
Great pictures of the castle! Looking forward to hearing more.
Yes, it was at the Hotel Maya. We loved breakfast there and would definitely recommend it.
The photos of the dining rooms and the staterooms where in the same sort of area where the displays of how the Queen Mary looked during WW2. The other photos were displays of how the officers quarters looked like and were near the bridge.

We stayed at the Queen Mary the night before the cruise and did a little self-guided tour the morning we left. We missed those crew quarters, so it was nice to see some pictures of them!
The photos from Disneyland are actually courtesy of the Photopass CD that I got last October. There were all kinds of neat bonus photos on there. I had brought my camera, but I never took it out. I suppose this is what being completely overtired does to you.

Where is the Goose now? Oregon I believe.
The Queen Mary is actually larger than the Wonder and the Magic and was much faster, too. Today there is the Queen Mary and the Scorpion Submarine. Opposite the Queen Mary, there was also a collection of mock Tudor buildings and we never figured out what this is.
