The ship does some very random activities, and one of them was the "Jack Jack Diaper Dash."

It was a baby crawling contest. Now, I pretty much hate babies, but this was pretty funny!

Love that this is the name of their cooking classes!

This was on someone's door... Um... We support cancer... too? I think?

Hooray for Toy Story movies playing on the "Funnel Vision."

Tonight's dinner was in the Enchanted Garden.

A very "elegant" restaurant which looks nothing like your typical cruise ship restaurant. This one of the reasons I like Disney so much!

While this restaurant doesn't transform as much as Artists Palate does, you'll see some things change by the end of the meal.

Lets take a look at the menu...

Page one...

Page two... All yummy!

Here's one of the flowers that will bloom by the end of the meal.

Having a bit of fun at dinner! (and yes, KidTums had pulled out all her fancy hairdo by dinner time!) lol

Ahi Tuna and avocado tower.

Yummy salad...

All the food has been exceptional.

Joey Ray would absolutely die!

Yay! The birds sing words and the flowers bloom! Well, the flowers bloom.

Another Mickey bar! These are so much better than at the parks... First of all, they aren't frozen solid to the point of chipping your teeth, and secondly... Toppings!!!

Who needs Carsland?

The "fake" portholes are amazing. I seriously like this better than having an exterior or balcony cabin!

In the adults section of the ship, there are these ridiculously high-end toilets.

Why? We have no idea... But it's cool.

Again, the portholes are so cool! I haven't been this entertained by any balcony stateroom we've ever had.

We've probably seen at least 25-30 different shows so far!

Hooray! Grand Cayman... We won't be getting off the ship! Lol.

Beautiful day to NOT go to Grand Cayman and have the ship to ourselves while everyone else is on shore.

Since this was our first port, everyone got off the ship! It was amazing!

It was so much fun exploring without anyone around.

Gotta love all the Disney movies shown all day and all night on the Funnel Vision.

Time for us to ride Aquaduck!

Sorry, Time to marathon AquaDuck! Check out the POV video below...

While I realize this isn't the most "wild" water slide in the world it's pretty darn cool being about 20 feet above the pool deck and at one point, the slide goes off the side of the ship over the water! It's actually a lot of fun! A mix of a water slide and a "lazy river!"

While its not the wildest ride in the world, it's VERY cool and a lot of fun!

Elissa and KidTums about to ride AquaDuck!

KidTums played on the slide for what seemed like hours!

Her favourite was actually in the Nemo area!

And after AquaDuck...PIZZA!!!! The pizza on the ship was actually pretty decent!

You know, not only is it the Disney magic that makes this ship awesome, it's the little things. For example, they have these little lid dispensers that work perfectly! They aren't disgusting or a mess, and when you are on a ship with a crap load of kids, you NEED cup lids!

Same thing with these wipes. While other ships have gel dispensers, which again get kind of disgusting, the Disney ship hands out full hand wipes. It's the "little" things...

Still can't believe the porthole idea has never been done before. Such a simple concept yet VERY effective!

And the "enchanted art" are probably my favourite "little" thing on the ship... In case you missed the video earlier in this report...

Hello Nigel!

This is so much better than Grand Cayman!

Our next dinner was at the Royal Court...

Here's our place setting... Very fancy...

And our menu...

The French Onion soup is Elissa approved!

Have we mentioned how amazing the food is?

My steak kinda looks like it ran over something! But OMG that balsamic glaze was amazing.

Here is how the dessert menu comes packaged.

I see something that I want!

"Amazing cupcakes!"

This peanut butter thing was better than normal sex! OMG! It was like a rich persons Reese's cup. Incredible!

Yay! We got fireworks on our porthole!

Once again, Disney perfects how to move people around! This place is going to be SLAMMED with people momentarily as the show let's out and the characters arrive.

So lets have some fun before everyone else gets here!

OMG! It's Princess Tiana!

I found me a new woman!!!

Drink menu at "The Tube."

We upgraded our fish extender with a present that someone left us! (Thank you Mickey cut-out person!)

Today we are in Costa Maya, Mexico!

For some reason I think it's funny that they are flying a Disney flag and a Mexican flag together!

Every cruise ship port pretty much has the exact same crap...

In Mexico, everyone has a ukulele, do you should, too.

All of Mexico looks exactly like this.

I'm told this is actually Jesus' skull... For reals!

In Mexico, they have chairs that look like butts!

I'm sure this has a double use! =)

Some every-day Mexican stuff going on here.

Thanks for covering up, dude!

One of these things is not like the other... One of these things does not belong...

"Excuse me, I'd like to buy everything on this table for $1. Thank you!"

Best part of Mexico is the great view of our ship!

Yup, there's where Aquaduck goes over the side!

The Dumbo on the back is an amazing touch!

I'll post more photos and videos soon if you guys want me to!

WOW, love your report. I did the Magic in September of 2008 and it was the vacation of a lifetime. My daughter who is 15 now wants to do another one in a couple of years. Guess I better start saving now!!!! Glad you had fun.
