Alex! The bartender is Alex! And you are right- she is AWESOME!!! Such a doll! We all became FB friends with her after our last cruise- can't wait to see her again.

Your TR is so much fun to read- thank you!

Yay Just got home from Whistler today, and see a new update Only 6 mos since trip? hahaha. Restaurant looks amazing. Love the headdresses! Jessee doesn't look too worried about his brother!

Hope you had a great Christmas & New Years. We had Christmas at home, then took off for Whistler. It was truly a winter wonderland. Unfortunately a nasty cold was making it's way around school, and I bought it home for the Holidays I was sick at Christmas, youngest daughter and hubs got it for New years

Youngest daughter also blew up her car engine day after Christmas something about not checking oil!!! That will do it. So she has our SUV while her's is getting fixed Kids! Wait for it!!! Your turn will come

Almost time for our next WDW trip Heather! Oldest daughter & I will be at POFQ for 10 nights, leaving for Ft. Lauderdale 1/19, then up to WDW 1/23. woohoo! Maybe you'll finish your TR by then or not! My plan is to figure out what I want to bring, get it laid out, washed, etc and ready to pack before school starts 1/7. My mantra is "I will not over pack" lol, we'll see if I succeed for once!

I wish I had done that with Animator's Palate and The Enchanted Garden. I think I made a few pictures, but nothing quite as detailed....not sure why The Head Waiter was incredible...if we made a request, he got it done.

Each restaurant is so very different and offers something special. While I really loved the elegant decor of Royal Palace, Animator's Palate was lots of fun....kinda reminded me of Turtle Talk with Crush at Epcot. If possible, try and ask for a table next to one of the big screens. Crush will come out an chat with your table....very cool!

Excellent location! They must have known that the kids were going to be super crazy that night There was another family in that room, too....I kinda felt bad for them at times especially towards the end of dinner when things got loud.

I hope yall get great waiters on the Fantasy!....it can almost make or break a cruise, ya know. Did you ever decide on early or late dining? I have a feeling Reid will really enjoy this cruise since he's older.

We were! Our family isn't what you would call "shy", so we enjoy chatting with the wait staff whether it be at WDW or the cruise

YOU'RE RIGHT!!! Her name is Alex....how funny that you know her! She's an excellent bartender. Not only can she make a mean drink, but she's got the right personality for the job.

Glad you're enjoying our adventures....never a dull moment with 11 people :laughing

Jesse doesn't take anything from Stephen....no fear whatsoever. He might be 6 years younger, but he holds his own!

You're kidding?!!! Sick?! Not fun during the holidays. Hopefully Whistler made up for it. My kids are forever wanting it to snow! "Ain't" gonna happen in South Georgia, and if it does...maybe an inch...nothing substantial.

Oh my word! Not good! Those days will be here before I know, and I can't say I'm looking forward to it. I have a sneaky suspicion that Jesse will be the one to do us in.....

Another trip!!!??? Not fair (can you picture me pouting?) The crowds should be really low during that time...maybe a bit cold......no, wait.....not cold for y'all And will my TR be finished??? My guess would be NO

And you said, "I will not over pack"......doubtful!

When I changed our cruise reservation to the June 1st Eastern sailing, the only thing they had available was late dining. I have thought about getting us waitlisted but I'm just not sure.

At first, I thought it would be ok. But, I started having a mini-panic attack last night as I was doing some research. I'm wondering if he'll need to nap to stay up later at night. And if so, how will that impact us viewing the shows before dinner?

Y'all did late dining, right? If so, how did you work it out for the kids, especially Jesse?

Your waiter seems like he did an awesome job especially with the kids, it's so important to keep them happy and going, especially during a meal and what a nice anniversary surprise for your parents!

From how you describe your Jesse, yup, he will be the one

I'll be happy if its in the 70's in Florida while I'm there. And hope there isn't a cold snap. Last January was great. Mid to high 70's. very nice. Some January's has been down right cold, ESP 2 yrs ago, longest cold snap ever. Or was it 3 hrs ago lucky us, we arrived during the tail end, so most of our trip was good weather.

I'm ready for some fun in the sun!

We did late dining, and surprisingly enough, they all did great! My sister's son Jonah is 4, and he did wonderfully. When we do another cruise, I'll definitely book the late seating. I was a little concerned before we went because I thought the kids might be cranky and hungry by 8pm. No problems, though, since you can get food at anytime during the day.

"Wrangling" is a good word and described our situation well

We did have a great holiday! Today is the last of our days off...the kids are not happy about that....back to school on Monday....back to the real world. Luckily it's a beautiful day outside so they can play all afternoon.
