On Sunday night, I have to stay up until Midnight because that's our 90 day booking window!

My current debate (with myself, of course, since I'm the only vacation planning looney in the family) is what night to do Palo. I'm thinking I might want to go there on semi-formal night because I like doing that stuff on sea days and I will already be dressed up! Two birds, one dress....

Gotta to make sure I still get my free Captain's Gala cocktails though. Last cruise, I believe I had an appletini. And a glass of wine.

Sounds like a great night and the boys look so cute all dressed up. My have they grown from the updates that you posted on the Yosemite TR!

I can't wait to try the larger ships! I have three cruises booked in 2015 too! Mine are all Disney, pretty soon we'll be gold!

I was up this past Monday night doing the same for Alaska! Kind of stinks that I turned gold but no one else did and we were in 2 cabins- so had to come back for Silver booking after all! Good luck getting everything your heart desires!

I know that's a popular choice!

I know, right? It is crazy! I notice it when I post them- here's the current situation, if you missed it on Facebook-

They are awesome! You will be in awe- and YAY for 3 cruises in 2015! They are the best- congrats on almost being Gold- in a year from now I will have 2 more to go for Platinum. It seems once you start the ball rolling to Gold, you just can't stop!

Sounds like another fun day aboard DCL!

So nice of the boys to grace you with their presence. But it is good to hear they were having a fun time. I barely saw my brother and cousins this past January; they were having a blast doing all the activities.

I can't wait to hear all about your Alaskan cruise adventures!!! That is on my bucket list, for SURE.

Love the bra post! You know you're a veteran Disney cruiser when you plan to take an extra bra to a show - lol . . .

So, you know the cruise that my kids don't want to go on??? Well, my mother told me today that she is treating ALL of us to that cruise - meaning the 2 of them + my family of 4 + my brother's family of 6 + my 92 year old grandma! NOW my kids are excited!! I spent the afternoon getting everyone booked. So fun! I'm now looking for Mixology photos to send everyone. Gonna be hard to wait a year . . .

Oh no - the bra picture! I love that Tisa is wiping a tear from her eye in the background. We had a great time that night.

The hypnotist show was great too. Yay for Pods for racing up to the stage to take part.

I think we did pass on the Passports that night since we knew we had a big day in St. Maarten coming up.

WOW on all the upcoming cruises! I so wish I could come with you on the one in May but I can't take that much time off of my part-time job - or I would not have the part-time job . If you go down to WDW for a long weekend girls trip - I'm in!

I'm getting psyched for our HHI/Dream trip. Only 22 days to go! The boys do not know about the Dream. We added it after NYE. We thought since we are in SC and only 5 hours from the Port it would be a shame not to go on a cruise - Right?? Seems logical to me. We are going to see how long it takes them to realize that we are driving South and not towards home.

Great update
Your boys all look super smart in their suits (I am counting Pods as one of the 'boys') and of course you look gorgeous!
I've never done any of the adult shows in the evenings (why does that comment sound so wrong??!!)

Yes - very logical!! Hate to tell you . . . I sent the bra picture to my entire family to show them what occurs on a Disney cruise . . . Tell your hubbie he is famous!

Oh great, yet another town that that I can't show my face in. Nah, it was fun. Go ahead and share. I have no shame.

I have to say I was impressed with how fast Kristi got hers off. Very impressive.

It was a ton of fun. I had never heard of Quest before we were on our way into dinner and Ellen went by the other direction and just said "Quest, 10:00" I felt a bit like I was in a spy movie and had just received a coded message. I had to refer to the navigator to decode the instructions but we figured it out and were in the right place at the right time for some silly fun.

This was one of many highlights of the week.

What a fun night!!! I have never seen those game shows, but it looks like a riot.
I saw a hypnotist on a NCL cruise many years ago and it was so hilarious!

Great update Ellen! Tyler looks so grown up, and quite a bit more like Pods lately!

I love the pics of the empty lobby with the tree. Never usually get to see that area empty!

What exactly is Quest, and why did the MC's exchange clothing? I'm guessing its some sort of game, but is the bra thing an every time deal?

It is all good- everyone is super duper happy on a Disney cruise!

I can't wait to hear all about your Alaskan cruise adventures!!! That is on my bucket list, for SURE.
I am really getting excited- I have Palo booked for brunch and dinner, also the room of naughty mud love (Secret rasul) and a bunch of amazing excursions (all done independently). Every person I meet who hears we are going tells me about how incredible Alaska is, so I am pretty excited!!

It was SOOOOOOOOOOO funny!! GO TEAM 4!!!!

He was very motivated and determined, wasn't he??

I think we did pass on the Passports that night since we knew we had a big day in St. Maarten coming up.

YES!! We did pass it up!

The only weekend girls trip is the pre-cruise two nights this year- probably a longer one next year-

I love that you did that! Can't wait to hear about HHI- you should do a TR, they are scarce-

Thanks! And you really need to make it to the shows- the entertainment at night has been consistently wonderful for us!
