Look at Smiley Timmy! I think he was excited to be on the ship!

Jill in CO
He was TOTALLY excited!! He sure did hate that RCCL cruise, but he has loved every DCL cruise he has taken- at age 9, 11, and now 13.

Yes- it was the magnet (which disappeared....) and the invite to the DVC meet (which we missed because we were touring the ship and then went to the DISmeet. I don't know if they have ever given me an artsy dvc pic? You mean like the ones they send when you watch a webinar?

Guy in the pool looks concerned that you are taking his photo!

Too late now!

When I saw how tall Tim was compared with the other kids in the Edge and then you said you went see Vibe I immediately thought "Yep, I think that's the last of the Edge will hear about in this trip report". So glad they gave him that option. Looking around, it looks to me like the Vibe was likely a much better experience for him.
Yea- he did look VERY big compared to the other kids in there. So glad it all worked out for him!

Umm- they have that!! It's called a hotel.

We've gotten in the stateroom 11 X 13 poster like pictures. Some art deco looking, some that look like prints of paintings. One with an art deco rendering of the Eiffel Tower that had a caption like "See the World with Disney Vacation Club", another with a painting of Big Ben. A painting of Mickey Mouse in pirate gear. All were either ads for DVC and/or Adventures by Disney. When I get home later, I'll try to remember to take a pic of my wall and post it here so you can see what I mean.

Maybe you never received those in the stateroom because you are already a member?

More updates!

BOG looks so good. I can’t wait to eat there in August. It is especially helpful that you and Tim ordered the exact two entrees that I am going to be deciding between.

I really enjoyed the WL and FW pictures. It’s just not a resort that I ever hear that much about. And it looks amazing!

But I have to admit, I’m so excited that the cruise portion of the TR has begun! DCL cruises really are the best mom vacations ever! We are wrapping up our WDW trip this summer with a cruise on the Fantasy. I cannot wait!!

Actually, I would be interested in hearing what you would advise as far as transportation to the ship. I was sort of thinking that I would get a town car to drive us since it doesn’t cost a ton more and would get us to the port earlier. But I see that you took the DCL bus. Since you have done both, which would you recommend? (Our only other DCL cruise was Alaska, so we have never sailed out of PC before.)

The Cabanas lunch offerings look pretty impressive! And your stateroom is beautiful - I love that it is a little different with the slanted wall.

It is really fun to see the pics of the tween and teen clubs. We haven’t made it to those and won’t for a while since my DD is only 6!

We will make sure to do that! Thanks! We are having dinner at Artist Point - decided to do the Deluxe dining plan this trip, so we are checking out a variety of signature restaurants.

I'm so happy reading your trip report -- of course, we had that very same view of the ship as we were driving up in the DCL bus. We won't be back until next April, so I'm going to be very homesick between now and then. I'm SO jealous that you will be back next week!

We'll be on the April 13th cruise on the Dream next year, so if you happen to re-book onboard your next trip, remember you have friends on the April 13th sailing! I could use a drinking partner in Pink!

Loved that u had time to do a bike ride before taking on on the cruise. I can hardly get my troops up in time for breakfast before we start vacation lol.

Always love seeing the ship, so cool that the CMs remember people too, I think that's what makes Disney so unique & special!

Good to hear that Timmy was moved up in the clubs and enjoyed it. I am hoping someday to get on another Disney cruise before the boys think they are too big for it. Don't know why they would feel like that when E and I still want to cruise with Mickey lol

So how was the food compared to your other time on the dream and magic?

Ps- this time next week we will be recovering from our Thursday night meeting lol so excited

I've finally had chance to catch up!

Firstly and backtracking a little, thanks for all the wonderful WL pictures, we LOVE this resort and one of our fave things to do is hire bike and ride over to FW

I did a horse ride over there a couple of trips ago and really loved it

Great photos from the Dream. Vibe looks so cool, I love the outdoor space there but sadly I don't exactly fit into the age critera

Nice update. Im going to have to pick your brain about our family cruise is 2015 as far as cabins go and all the terminology. I feel like I'm learning a new language.

The teen clubs look great! Joshua will be 12 when he cruises. I hope he enjoys them and makes friends.

I finally got all caught up from missing so much while on my cruise. The Dream looks awesome! We're considering a little cruise in about a year tacked on to the end of a WDW vacation...I'll be taking notes!
