You remembered! I could eat my weight in that stuff!! I'll order my fair share on the cruise for sure.

Oh yes, they do. I just completely forgot you have to hit a separate button on the remote and couldn't find them. We were on the Fantasy this cruise.

On the Wonder there were several movie channels that continuously played different movies. I wonder how it will be on the Magic

One day I'd like to do the sealion one but mom lit up at the idea of a manatee swim. It is a crime to get near or touch manatees in the U.S. This will probably be our only experience to do this.

The black coral jewelry is so pretty. Please let us know if you buy any in Hawaii.

I was a bit annoyed but it had to be a miscommunication. He was trying so hard to find those candies. The plan for next year is after we've had our fill of Chankanaab we'll ask a taxi driver to take us to Los Cincos Soles and then walk back to the ship after shopping.

Not to mention the health aspects but them you have to figure out how to get home.

I couldn't believe my eyes. They are both so nice. Clayton was on our very first cruise on the Dream and then on our first time on the Fantasy, he seemed quite pleased that I remembered. And now we've had Ray twice also, he was on our first cruise on the Wonder as well.

You must must must go to Les Chefs de France if only for appetizers and dessert. Mom has been all over the world and says that creme brle is THE BEST! This sounds familiar, did I already tell you this last year?

Just found your TR yesterday.

Got all caught up this morning and what an awesome first few days. I'm hoping to plan a 3-4 night cruise for May next year. I'm already planning two WDW trips for September and January so I haven't brought up the cruise to DBF yet but in due time.

The BC is so gorgeous. It is def on my bucket list of resorts to stay at. Oh my goodness that pizza at Via Napoli looks awesome. So glad I have a reservation for there in September.

The pictures of the Disney ships just amaze me they are so gorgeous!

Remy looked so wonderful. I really want to try Palo brunch when we go.

That's awesome you had someone to take you around Cozumel while you were there.

That family walking up late would have eerked me to no end. I'm usually 15-20 minutes early to everything so I never understand being late.

I love a good hypnosis show. They always did them during the first few days when we got back to college and they always had me in tears from laughing so much.

What wonderful updates. Look forward to reading more.

Looks like the hypnotist show was fun! I wouldn't ever do it myself but it's fun to watch other people.

How cool that you saw two cruise directors - awesome!

I just love the animals tucked into their beds. So sweet!

Have you figured out which days you'll be down yet or are you still playing around with the dates?

That jewelry is so pretty!

I love that all those treats from the Cove Cafe are included.

Wow, the people taking their time. Cause the ship doesn't have an itinerary to stick to

The hyptontist shows are SO fun! I think it would be funny if DH went up there. Oh the things i imagine he would do I think it would be fun to do it to personally, but i'd be nervous and kind of scared.

About the mickey mouse show. Is it kind of a short show, lasting between 3-5 minutes per show? There is a Mickey show on one of the Disney channels (the one for older kids I think) that is pretty funny and DS loves the animation (it's not like classic animation, but looks a little darker if that makes sense - like it's a little strange) Wonder if it's the same one that you saw?

Mac and cheese without enough cheese is a big problem.

Love that he tucked the stuffed animals in!

I was going to wait until SW puts out the rest of January to see how flights will be.

I also need to ask my boss to make sure I get two days off in a row.

Welcome! And thanks for reading

Via Napoli has quickly become one of our favorites on property. We were going to skip it in December, per mom, and then she asked if we could still make a reservation

I hope you can book your cruise. May is a gorgeous time to go.

We didnt do Palo brunch this time but it is fabulous.

Those late people were just bizarre. Like they had all the time in the world...

I love a hypnotist show, every one I've seen is hilarious!

Thats exactly my thought. I'll never do it but I love seeing what others will do.

It was a real treat to see Ray and Clayton together. They're both such nice guys.

Those animals were too cute.

It was so bizarre. There was a bunch of us watching them and some even tried to yell at them to hurry up, but I'm sure they couldnt hear. Not that it would have helped anyway

I think thats exactly the show. I never gave it more than a few minutes because it was so weird. I kept saying 'what in the world is this? Mickey doesn't act like this...'

Oh most definitely! He's already pretty funny in a 'normal' state, I couldn't imagine how he would be hypnotized!

That's what I thought the very first time I saw it! I thought it was kind of dark/goth like but it had come on after one of his shows when he was younger and he was just laughing at it the whole time. Now he can't get enough of them! We have 22 episodes on our DVR right now
