The whole Orlando to Miami thing seems like a PITA, much like getting to Galveston. I will start my PTR once I finish my two TRs in progress!!!! I updated both today. The Destination-D one is taking way too long because there is just too much information!

Your Destination D report is great. I'm sure it's also very time consuming. Your note taking is stellar and I know much appreciated. It's like being there without being there. I saw your DVC update but not the other. I'll go read after this.

There are other people who could learn from this post....none of which have TRs on the DVC boards.

Do tell....... I realized I have a few really good ones I should have posted along with a ton of Photopass photos from the days prior to MNSSHP. I think I'll just post them in the finale if I ever get there.


Club 33 Friday seems crazy unreal to me.

We had such a great time, thank you! I'm glad my report communicates that even with the blurry pics. It's a fun party and we'd do it again in a heartbeat. It did leave us with an unused day on our park hoppers though. Blasphemous I know.

I'm always warm in places, so I'm not a good one to ask. I always wearsome sort of sleeveless blouse with a cover up blouse so in case I get hot I'm OK. The Destination D report will be easy skating from here on out. I have a couple updates ready to go. It's all pictures from here on out.

I'm also several updates ahead on the DVC report. I can't believe it's almost over already!

11:30 is a great arrival time. I'd be thrilled with that.

Excellent you're going to AKV for a night after. You're cruising out of MCO correct? I have looked into cruising out of MCO but they only have 7 dayers, which sounds great, but it's more than I'd like to spend. It's the same itinerary as yours.

With a 4-5 hour drive, AKV may not be in the cards now. I'll have to lay it out on paper.

As far as excursions I've only decided on Nachi Cocom in Cozumel. In Castaway Cay, I'm thinking we'll do the beach and maybe rent a bike. We're pretty mellow vacationers. I feel like I'm go go go all of the time so I truly like to tune out on vacations.

Did you get to your work out? What do you do to work out? I'm always looking for new ideas.
A 4-5 hour dive is a huge chunk of time, but I think you'll have an early start to the day, by the time you're off the ship.

We are out of MCO, well Port Canaveral, but we fly in and out of MCO. This is defiantly my dream vacation, and I can't believe it's coming true.

I did get to my work out the other day, I've been very boring lately in that respect. We've got an elliptical at home so I've been on that, we also have a membership at our local Y, but I just can't seem to get there during the week. I had my Gall Bladder out in November and my recovery went well, but I've had a little set back and I'm on a break from heavy lifting, so no weights or full laundry baskets for me for a while.

Great update! Loved all the pics, glad everyone got to do what they liked, seems like there is so much to do at those parties, I think I'll have to wait for the parties until my boys are a little older and can do the late nights. Can't wait to hear about AKL so I can get your great hints!

I'm always cold. Definitely will be bringing a sweater. I hope the 60% chance of rain is less. Looks like I'll be searching the basement for our Disney ponchos. My geekiness knows no bounds.

You Dest D updates were great. The Alan Menken day looked spectacular. He's a true musical gif and genius.

That doesn't sound like fun. At all. I'd have to rent a car for sure. I guess if we do that, we can fly into Miami or Fort Lauderdale and then fly out of MCO. I've found that booking one ways is saving me money. I just booked the kids tickets to Denver for summer camp and did it all one ways.

I'm so excited for you. How far is Port Canaveral from MCO? What kind of transportation are you taking to the port?

Sending healing vibes your way. Good for you for getting on the machine at home. Even in front of the tv, its hard for me to work out. I was doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred and doing quite well until Riley passed away and then have been very sporadic since.

A heavy laundry basket break doesn't sound so bad.

AKV is amazing. I'd be happy to answer any questions you've got. It was our second stay there and we loved every minute of it.

I'd wait for late parties until the kids are older too, that's what we did but not purposefully. It just turned out that way. In retrospect though my kids wouldn't have done well as toddlers staying up that late for a party. When you get the chance and your children are older, I'd highly recommend it. There were so many unique party activities. The fireworks, parade, characters, Photopass, and trick or treating are all special for party nights.



4 days until Club 33!!!

I think Port Canaveral is about a hours drive from MCO, we are renting a car so we'll drive there the day before the cruise and spend the night.

Wow 4 days! You'll be there before you know it!!

An hour isn't bad at all. What hotel are you staying at? I need to find one for ours. We have friends in Miami and we could always stay with them. I'm sure they'd grab us from the airport and drop us at the port. I just don't want to get too settled for just a night if that makes any sense? Haha! It'd be great to see them though.

We stayed at a cool spot in south beach, killer dive Cuban within walking distance. I'll try to figure out where it was but I think it's pretty close to the port from SB.

In Miami? Awesome! Thank you for checking. How did you get to the port?

Very nice pictures from MNSSHP and see that everyone had a great time. Those were very nice costumes that your family wore that night which were all Disney. The Photopass pictures are very nice. I had a fun time at MNSSHP last year and wished that we did a lot more than just watching Happy HalloWishes fireworks and Mickey's Boo To You Halloween Parade.

Very nice update.

Have a great time at Club 33 in a few more days.
