Girls only on the Dream! Jan 2-6 2013

Ok...I"m not much for writing trip reports, but I'll give a go at it!

Originally this cruise was booked as a 7 night out of Galveston for me and DH, but he decided that he didn't want to do that, so I re booked as a 4 night on the Dream for me and my DD's!! Had to go in the winter since they are both in college and figured that Jan 2nd would work great!

Day One

Trip started on a late flight on Jan 1st as we flew Southwest into Orlando! Flights were great and we were landing in MCO on time! Since we were staying at the MCO Hyatt all we had to do was collect our luggage and walk to our room!! It was sooo nice to not have to worry about anything that night except going to bed. We did take the luggage to the room and then went down to McDonalds in the food court since it was the only thing open that late.

Had a great night sleep and woke up the next morning and headed down to the buses!! We left our luggage in the room and the Hyatt took it to the buses for us and we saw it again a few hours later near our stateroom. Super easy!!

We were on the second bus out of the terminal and it was such a non stressful way to head to the port! Before we knew it we were there!! No line at the terminal and we went right to the Castaway Club desk and checked in! We were boarding number 5!!

Saw Mickey while we were waiting!!!

When we cruised summer of 2011 the terminal seemed really busy, but for some reason it didn't seem that bad to me this time. The check in for the kid's clubs were HUGE, but thankfully we didn't need to go there.

Stitch (he always travels with DD21) had to make a few phone calls before we were at sea!!

Before we knew it they started boarding and we were heading through the Mouse Ears!! Headed up to Cabanas (forgot how big the ship was lol!!) and I ate all the Peel and eat shrimp I could eat!!

After Lunch we ran into Pluto!

Were pleasantly surprised when we opened the room to our stateroom and found out that we had a basket waiting for us from Dreams Unlimited!! That was awesome Pixie Dust that we did not expect!! Also we had $175 of OBC when I was only expecting $100 (still not sure where the $75 came from?)

We also LOVED the Castaway Club gift and used it after the cruise at the parks!
