I must say I've never really paid much attention to what movies were running during my cruises, all I ever saw was Tangled and the first 20 minutes of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie (before heading to bed and falling asleep, which was due more to the lateness of the hour than the quality of the movie ). I am totally hoping to be better on this cruise and go see at least a couple of movies!
First cruise that we have seen movies was on the Hawaii cruise this year. It was lucky number 13 for us. Not that we don't like free movies, there has just not been time. There were LOTS of sea days on that one though and it was chilly outside so we made use of the time for the theater. Hoping to see a few this trip also. Get some pizza or fries from deck 9 and go to the movies. Loved it!

I am so against the new Oz movie. You don't mess with the classics. Disney already has made one Oz dud called Return To Oz. This movie looks visually stunning but as a movie buff it's my pick for the first huge dud of the year at the Box Office. Like the Hunger Games last year. It had a huge opening week
End like almost 80 million then had a 75% drop off the next weekend due to poor word of mouth. If I am wrong good for my Disney stock.

Nice! I can't remember what day we booked for, but it is one of the highlights for me every time. I guess I just really feel like we're treating ourselves and the staff in there really makes you feel special.

Yes those certificates are very cool!

Then four relaxing days at WDW, AK Kidani, after the cruise; may or may not get to any of the parks.

When we get back, only two months until this cruise!
Wow, have a wonderful trip! It sounds heavenly.

Its so nice to go to the movies on these longer cruises! I love seeing all of my favorites on the big screen and then see some of the new releases (seems like there is never enough time at home.)

Well, I'm kinda excited about the Oz movie. I think b/c the storyline doesn't include a lot of the same characters (i.e. only the witches) it could be really good. I mean, look at Wicked! That show is extremely popular.
Also, seems like this movie is geared towards adults or older children. I saw Return to Oz as a child & can't imagine I'd want to watch it as an adult...it was pretty creepy as I recall.

This is how I feel about the "Lone Ranger" movie. I grew up watching Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels. I think I'll pass on this movie.

I am not sure how I feel about it either. In all fairness though the Lone Ranger is no where near as a classic as The Wizard Of Oz. what has me worried about The Lone Ranger is its director. The last two movies he directed were two of the worst movies I have ever seen. Pirates 2 and 3.

They may experience a dip if it fails, but I'm sure they'll counteract with a nice, big Star Wars announcement of some kind.

Well neither one is getting my money but no movie gets my money from the box office so then all I can say that I WILL see Star Wars Episode IIV: The Lens Flare ( that's a J.J. Abrams joke) but I will not be seeing Oz.

If it means the first great Star Wars movie in over 30 years, I'll take a little lens flare.

As for OZ, a co-worker of mine was at Disneyland yesterday and saw the 4D preview they had at DCA, and was saying really good things about it........ so, who knows?

See that's something else I hate. The preview can't be in 4D. The fourth dimension is time. So you can't show something in 4D. Ugh. Oh yes, I hope it's a good Star Wars movie. It will have it's fair share of lens flairs, but that's just a J.J. thing.

You could have my spot - I didn't really enjoy it. Just make sure that you know when the others are because if your at the third and last one, you'll need to swap to one earlier in the cruise.

book the brunch when you want and then switch either the brunch or the breakfast.

On the EBPC, Character breakfast days were all mixed up.

Welcome to the new cruisers!
Happy Birthday, Mary! (Yet another birthday twin - I was born on the birthday of the little girl for whom my mother babysat. Then my cousins daughter and HER daughter were all born on the same day too!)

I saw someone mentioned the Mickeys Island Jam Breakfast. Let me see how to put this. My 11th cruise was to Hawaii. It was the first time I had ever gone to Hawaii. It was a amazing cruise. The 13th cruise I taking will be the first time I will be on the Dream because a dear friend will be getting married on said cruise. On this cruise I will be leaving a deposit down for my 15th cruise as a dummy date because I am doing this same cruise next year. I hope that helped.

Or wouldn't that mean that EVERYTHING that is 3D is also 4D, because everything lasts a specific amount of time? And wouldn't that also mean that all 2D movies are in reality 3D movies because they have the first, second and fourth dimension and only lack the third? The mind boggles ...

Maybe... just maybe... there is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call..... the Twilight Zone.
