Oh my, be away from DIS for a couple of weeks and all sorts of things happen. Loving your report. I would have been so freaked out with losing a Wave phone. I am glad you guys found it. Yea for fish extenders!

true that!

We will be docking alongside the Fantasy for yet another FIRST!!! First time two Disney ships have been docked side by side in another port!
you mean the magic and wonder never were together?

That Ally came out on deck (she and her pals had left for awhile while we were waiting on clearance from port authority)..... crying.... and said.....

"I lost the wave phone!"
OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Tammi and Tori already knew it was missing - apparently Ally had put it in her pocket and at some point realized it was gone. Ally went to Tammi first, because she knew what kind of reaction she's get from Mama.....
HA i know some kids like that too

We all met up at our cabin about 15 minutes later and there it was, in our fish extender!!! So THANK YOU to whoever took the time to return it!!!
awesome.. oh man you know how many drinks of the day that could have been

We soon discovered this was a BIG day out in port for crew members. We saw a LOT of them debarking with us.
haha i think they always let them "FREE" there they really let loose when we were tehre

Trying to upload video now but having a problem. Anyone good with Macs?
im good with a Mac.. oh wait you meant computer.. I meant E.. thats his nickname

We were all dreading that bill for the phone! Ally just KNEW how much trouble she was in, so thank goodness for the fish extender!!!! If the phone is turned in anywhere, I don't think you have to pay for it. You can look at the phone and see what stateroom it belongs to, so I would hope that very few are actually "lost" - more likely just misplaced and turned in.

If you ever do figure out a good way to upload video on your Mac, please let me know. I have been struggling forever. I get it from my phone or camera to stupid iMovie, and then I'm stuck most of the time. I would like to just bypass iMovie altogether, but I'm not sure how to do that.
I love iMovie for actually making movies, it's super easy to place video, photos, music..... but why can't I just upload clip by clip????

I think it's so neat on these trip reports that people can just run into the characters. I really miss that at the parks. As you know, if you run into one, they can't stop. I think I will really be looking forward to that for my son. Reminds me of when I was a kid.
This is one reason why I just love the cruise more than the parks. The interaction with the characters is so intimate. Ally was too old on our first cruise, but to think of the younger kids dancing with princesses, or other characters, in the Oceaneer's Club, is just mind blowing! You'd never find that in the parks!

Loved him! He was just professional enough but still able to cut up with us and have fun. Last year we had "Francois" and he was way too stuffy......

Kara, how did Ally carry her wave phone around? I realized too late that I don't really have a fanny pack or anything like that for my Allison and I know the phone doesn't have a clip or anything. I could give her a small drawstring bag to put it in, but since my daughter mostly lives in the clouds, surrounded by rainbows and unicorns, I'm sure the bag containing the phone could get left behind just as easily.

We leave on Thursday for our cruise on Saturday.

I got her a little Vera Bradley cross body bag (about 6" high and 4" wide?) and she just wore that all the time. I have absolutely no idea how she lost it. She may have just had it in her pocket that day...... a mistake she didn't make again!

Hooray for FE and found stuff! That would have been about 40 DOD's! Or 39 too many in my book!

I love the expression on Ally's face in the last picture with Goofy!

WOW!!!!! Your report was AWESOME! I loved the pics and videos! Your details were great!

Your trip looked like everyone had an amazing time! I am super excited for our 1st cruise on the Dream! I hope my family enjoys our trip as much as yours did.

As a side note my DH's video skills are equal to yours. My DH took a few still shots last year because he was sick of people asking if I went on the trip!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful memories!

Exactly! I'm sure that, if I ever remembered to take enough video to create some kind of fantastic movie project, iMovie would be a dream come true. But surely there has to be some easy way to get a simple video clip from an iPhone (or other device) to a Mac and then onto a hosting site!

Oh I am so loving reliving the whole trip over again with you. the Fantasy was huge compared to the magic. it was weird standing on the top deck and looking into balconies.

I am so glad the wave phone was found. Whew!


cannot wait to see the next update
