Concierge Meet with Minnie

They don't tell you who you will be with, only when and where to meet.

It's Minnie! In her tropical wear.



Yes, we're excited too.



It's probably wrong to take a photo of a stranger's baby, but it's also wrong not to capture this cute moment.

Meet up at the aquaduck

So sis and I are supposed to change and meet dad at the Aquaduck after our tea and his mixology class.



We're here but where is dad?



Hey there's Dad!

late afternoon/ early evening last sea day



Enjoying a snack and the view



the one bedroom verandah has these reclining chairs as well as the standard blue chairs.



And here I am watching the show in the main theater, from my stateroom as I get ready in my room





Clearly we did some shopping too today. Busy Sea Day!



Then, before dinner, we headed to the massive line to get our next cruise reservation changed to include dad - 45 minutes wait and this chick didn't even make the change we needed done - make it from 3 to 4 cruisers.





We even had time for a photo while mom waited in line for the future cruise booking.



Don't ask me how we are posed. Only Minnie has it down.

Absolutely LOVE your trip report! What lovely ladies to do the vow renewal for your parents!

We will be getting on our own Fantasy adventure soon and loving all the pics and the commentary from both sisters!

Thank you ladies for your time!

The picture of your dad on the Aquaduck-- hilarious!!

The picture of the baby laughing with Minnie -- adorable!!

In both cases, Disney magic at its finest.

loved your very detailed pics of your trip! I am sure your narrative was also wonderful but a bit long so I hit highlights
I doubt I will be doing Concierce anytime soon but I sure enjoyed seeing what it was all about.
I only wish on our recent Dream trip I could have taken in near the details you captured, so little time and sooo many things to see.

Agreed! I thought that scene with us looking for our dad and finding him going along above our heads in the aquaduck would make a great ad for DCL. A lot of people over heard us looking for dad and they when we yelled out there he is and pointed above, they all laughed.

You really get to see the ship and if you do the stairs instead of the elevator you get a little work out too. I would encourage adults to do it, with or without kids. I saw a lot of kids doing it and think their parents were missing out on something pretty fun too. Like many Disney things - they are designed for all generations to enjoy.
sounds like kim possible in epcot..
when we were there in august, my kids (27 and 25) and their spouses and we all played kim possible together - all of the different countries...
it was lots of fun!!

i definitely plan on dragging my sister and mom around the ship to play the midship detective agency game!!

So cool, Beth. 1978 was a great year (I was born that year). Congratulations and I do hope you have a great time on your trip. Yes, that is PJ and he was awesome. So much fun and I am 99.9% sure he's the reason the aquaduck was open an extra hour one night.
Dad really enjoyed the midship dectective game. And it was fun for Sis and me too. I think Mom would have liked it too but she made the cruise about relaxing and reading her book in the adult only shaded sun deck.

the change in the design of the fantasy from the dream looks really nice - that addition of satellite falls is genius.
Is the shaded adult area also only on the fantasy, or is it also on the dream?

I have only been on the Magic and Fantasy so I don't know, maybe someone else does?
