Last Supper

Tonight we are back in Animator's Palate.

Love the decor - this is the ceiling filled with lighted ink wells and artists palates held up with pencils and paint brush columns.

My advice, draw darker - use more pressure than I did drawing your person. We drew names for who each of us would draw. I had one of our Scottish friends. This looks nothing like her.

Because you are busy drawing your person/character, you have fewer choices to make as far as your meal goes.

Everyone gets the same appetizer and soup. The trio of tuna, procuitto and shrimp was very good.

But this popcorn soup is amazing. And I never heard of such a thing. Such a great idea to pair with this meal since the animation show is such a part of the experience. Popcorn soup and a movie!

It comes with corn bread and popcorn that you pour into the soup which is a cream soup. I heard from the Scots that it was similar to the parsnip soup served at lunch in cabanas and they also raved about that soup.

You do still choose your entree. I had the beef welington and my tablemate had the seafood pasta.

Impressed he held back long enough for me to get a photo!

Some of our tablemates go dancing by...

dessert was baked alaska

The End

Looks like this is the end. The next morning we have breakfast in Animators Palate and it's sad goodbyes.

Before our cruise we spent one day in WDW and Sis wrote a trip report on that if you are interested in adding a day to your cruise. Our Scottish friends are DVC members and spent a few days before and after the cruise at AnimalKingdom Lodge. I'm looking forward to spending a couple days in Disneyland after our Panama Canal cruise next year!

Now that I'm done editing photos - and thank you to everyone for your patience - I'll have to get reading trip reports from similar cruises to our next cruise. Excited to see the Wonder and to spend so many days at sea!

Thanks again for reading!

Happy planning, dreaming and sailing!

Loved your trip report! We are booked concierge on the Dream next summer. So excited! I do have a question for you. When do the pre-dinner snacks come out in the concierge lounge? We're booked for the early dinner and I'm wondering if snacks are out before the early seating and the late seating. TIA, for any information on this!

Again, I really enjoyed reading your report! Thanks for sharing all those fantastic photos - I'm especially a sucker for food photos, so I was hooked from he first post. That was a brilliant idea to draw a cartoon of other table mates at AP! I loved it! Thanks again!

Thank you for your trip report. DH and I learned alot. We laughed alot. Your Dad on the AquaDuck is priceless. I enjoyed your parents vows renewal. It made me wonder if DH and I should consider this in the future. So beautiful.
Your pictures were fantastic. Sadly the report had to end, you kept us entertained and enlightened and we will miss you and your sisters sense of humor. Looking forward to your Panama Canal Cruise trip report
Give thanks in all things

Always planning for the next trip

Great report.
Is it required to include your cabin # on your sketch in AP? If so why is it needed? TIA

They give the drawings back to you so I think that might be why they want your cabin number in case they miss you after dinner and have to deliver them to your room

I had so much fun reading your TR, thanks so much for sharing your parents vow renewal. My husband & I wanted to do that & wondered what it would be like, it was beautiful & you are awesome daughters for doing this for them!

We took our first cruise on the Dream this past March & fell in love with it so we are going on the Fantasy June1, 2013 and can't wait!!! Had to go for longer time next time! Can't wait for more days at see and a differet itinerary other tha Nassau.

The water on CC was to cold for me in March so hoping it is much warmer the first of June. Was the water a good temp to get in for May? There weren't many adults in when we went in March. Thanks!!!
