Not 1 installment but 2..... & both were great.
I loved the dolphin encounter pictures.
You guys looked great for pirate night....I agree with you about the pirate party. It wasn't as fun as I thought it would be...just like a dance party for the kids more than anything...but Mickey flying & the fireworks were worth waiting through all the other stuff.
Keep it coming. :

I have no idea.....just to see how tight you can clench your teeth & say "please quit that!" I guess.

Yet another great installment. The tip about being drunk during the Pirate Night had me Shouldn't it be added to the "Best tips you learned from the DIS?"

Still loving the report! Just wanted to let you know that the Cm's have amazing memories! We cruised in 2003, and had Collin and Shawn as our servers, well cruised again in 2006 and saw Collin at CC and DH and I went up to say "hi", and said "You probably don't remember us..." and He jumped up and embraced us ( me, longer than dh...but we won't go there...LOL) and said "Of course I remember you, how's Ryan?" So then we knew he remembered since he even got our son's name right! Amazing that after 3 years he would know that. And he isn't the only one. A few of the teen counselors remembered ds as well. This is one of the reasons we keep coming back to DCL. It's like going home everytime...only I don't have to cook or clean! LOL

Lisa
Get out of town! how cool was that! talk about making you feel good. I had an issue with our Head Server because I saw him several times on Castaway Cay and he had zero idea who I was. After a week you would expect him to at least recognize the folks at his table.

Thanks Melanie, as always! I like to surprise everyone now and again and give bonus episodes. I agree that the Fireworks made up for alot...especially in Connor's eyes!

one of the great mysteries is why kids do what they do!

And yes, I think my drunken quote should be added...and maybe next time I'll actually follow my own advice!

Now, on with the story!!

Chapter 14: Towel Animal Delight

Chapter 14: Towel Animal Delight

So, it's now October 26th, Thursday (well, actually it's January 11th, also a Thursday). We have Day at Sea #2!! woohoo! have I mentioned that I like days at sea? I would be willing to just get on the boat and cruise around for 7 days. I realize that the CM's would be insane after only a short period of doing this, but the idea of lounging around just appeals to me. So much better than having to haul all kinds of stuff off the ship (say, in a suitcase), renting cars, dealing with sand, being in Hell (that was a cheap shot), etc.

I'm lazy by nature, will always be lazy...but what can you do?

So this morning DW actually didn't get up at the crack of dawn. I guess it finally caught up with her. So we missed one sunrise. Again, isn't it interesting how you can get up early on vacation...yet at home I could sleep in for hours. I don't know that I will ever figure that one out.

Nick woke up sometime after we did and he and Deanna headed to get breakfast. I stayed behind because Connor was still sleeping. He had gotten a bit of a fever the night before (hmmmm maybe that's why he was so sleepy ), so we figured better to let him rest. I kicked back on the bed and read...which fit well with what I could conceivably do every single day on a cruise ship.

After Deanna and Nick got back I headed up to do the breakfast thing to bring back to our room...loading up my plates and tray with lots of good stuff (like a boatload of bacon and a big bowl of syrup....like I said, I like it). A few weird looks from the other guests (naturally I just shrug it off and say I'm getting food for the kids. Sad, isn't it that I continue to do that ). I make my way down to our stateroom and Connor is finally awake, feeling better and hungry. so that worked out well.

Slight digression here. How do they make their bacon. It was fabulous...and it was fabulous every single day. When I make bacon at home it never turns out like that. It was always perfect, crispy and tasty. When I make it, it's rubbery, and usually somewhat tasty. unless I overcook it. then it's crunchy.

But i digress. When we finished we took Nick and Chris up to the sportsdeck to play outdoors and the rest of us went to the lobby to take pictures. The princesses were there. So Connor is 4. He shouldn't care about if things are girl things or boy things...but he had NO interest in the princesses. He just didn't want to take pictures with them.

As you all know from reading my posts so far I'm an excellent parent. and I did what any excellent parent would do, I forced him to do it.

Connor and Belle

Kathryn was there too....

Kahtryn and Belle

Now, you would think that being the great parent that I am that I wouldn't make him do more than one since he really didn't want to. Again, you thought wrong.

Connor and Cinderella!

Come on people, you know it's all about the pictures. It's all that anyone will remember. and how cute is he with Cinderella. Good thing she was willing to lean over and hug him...cause he was not getting any closer to her

At lunchtime it was my turn to take one for the team. I took both Kathryn and Connor to see Cars in the Buena Vista Theater.

******Warning*******Tip coming******Warning**********
I have seen it asked, I don't know how many times, if you could bring food into the theater. The answer is yes. If you haven't figured it out yet, you can pretty much do whatever you want on the cruise...the vacation is yours. This is good...and bad depending on your situation. I've read where people go overboard and do stupid things. we didn't have that situation. So pretty much if you want to go somewhere that doesn't have food and bring food with you...go for it!

We went and visited Pinichios and got pizza for all of us and drinks. The lady doing pizza was nice enough to give us double the plates so I could stack everything and carry it. We grabbed drinks and grabbed our seats. It was pretty cool munching on pizza and watching the movie. It wasn't the same as candy...but people looked envious (or was that annoyed? ) while we were munching away.

It was not the first time I'd see Cars...which in my opinion is not one of Disney's better films. But it was ok and it kept the kids entertained for a while. And it was free. Well, sort of. Guess I would have had to watch a whole lot of "free" movies on the cruise to pay for the cruise. But I digress.

Once the movie was over it was time....for a towel folding demo! This was something that I really wanted to see. I think towel animals are very cool. I am always amazed at the different things you can do with towels. I'm also a bit concerned that someone, at some point, felt it was necessary to teach our stateroom hosts to do this....and that they must do this in order to recieve tips. But apparently it's a cruise thing...cause I know it ain't just Disney!

So they had a stateroom hostess teaching us. She was soooo good. Her english was not strong, but I was thinking about it while she was demonstrating. This is someone going above and beyond their normal job...she doesn't get extra money or kudos for this...she still gets her normal pay and tips...so she volunteers or gets volunteered. PLUS, the hour or so she spent doing this was an hour away from doing her rooms...which I'm sure put her behind. So big kudos to the CM's that do this kind of thing....we love it!!

So first she demonstrated several animals for us...and by the end this is what she had done:



Of course this whole thing took some of the mystery out of the towel folding...but DS8 (Nick) thought it was fabulous, more on that in a minute.

After she was done we were all give two sheets of paper with how to do a few animals and she helped us all make Swans. Then she taught us how to make a smaller swan and put them together to make a heart. very cool.

Nothing is more manly than posing with your towel swans.

Kim (DNW) actually did the best in the swan category. her beaks were razor sharp. We think perhaps she was a stateroom hostess in another life.

Nick really got into it

The next day Nick made a whole flock of swans as a present for our stateroom hostess. A present. Yes she had to clean them all up. But HE thought it was a present. He had a great time doing this...we talked about how we will make towel animals when we have guests come to the house. For Christmas we had a whole house full of guests...did we make towel animals? uh, no.

It was over quickly, but was definately a highlight. it wasn't all that packed so if you are interested I highly recommend it. It's a skill to have, I suppose, and someday we will remember. My dad visits next week...maybe then?

to be continued in the next thread! too many pics!

Chapter 14 part 2!

After that the kids got the boot to the clubs because it was time for the Galley Tour! We met in front of Lumier's and had to wait our turn. A chef came and brought us into the restaurant and introduced us to a bunch of other chefs. I'd tell you their names but they all looked the same in their white hats . Then they took us in back to the galleys. It was immaculate...pretty amazing. Consider that I can't keep my kitchen clean for 2 hours...how the heck they keep it not just clean but sparkling. Everything sparkled...and they talked to us about what they did in each part. They told us how many cakes, cookies, etc. that they make each day. There were some very cramped quarters back there...and I had a much higher respect for the servers. They have to squeeze into these area's grab food and make it back out. The assistant servers have to fight over one soda dispenser...no wonder it sometimes took forever (especially the first night. I think once they figure out what everyone wants they don't have as big of a crunch). And the gave us cookies. Always good to feed a bunch of adults on the cruise.

Cookie digression: There was one night, I think it must have been Key West, when we had issues getting Connor Cookies. apparently when they pull into US ports they have to dispose of all that type of thing from the day. I don't really know why...and this story loses its excitement because I can't tell you why. So why did I put it in here???

Anyway, at the end the chef asked for questions and we got the usual...how much food comes on board...do they take on food at different ports, etc. There were lobster questions and this guy was hilarious when he talked about a huge tank of water where they keep all the lobsters (uh...not so much, they just bring them on frozen). We all bought it of course...which I'm sure entertained him!

I highly recommend that you do this tour if given the chance. I really wish they would start a tour of the crew area's. But I just don't see that happening!!

So after this we went and grabbed the kids out of the clubs for a little bit. When we got up to get Nick his team had made a volcano:

Nick and his volcano

They blew them up. it was actualy pretty cool to watch.

We went up on deck to take some pictures. It was extremely windy. you could barely walk against the wind. So naturally we went to the front of the ship where it was windiest. We got this picture:

Don't tell DW that I posted that. I'm guessing I shouldn't. But I have been known to have lapses of judgement from time to time. It does show you how windy it was!!!

It was graduation day, so it was time for the kids to go back into the clubs. Chris had no interest in going, and DNH didn't want to force him. He was going to just sit with us. We finally talked him into it though, talking about the shirts, and how all the other kids were going to be in it. So we dropped all the kids off and DW and DNW went off to play Bingo. We joined them with Beers later, but unfortunately didn't bring them any luck as they didn't win. Bingo is pretty fun,though, with alot of interaction....you should try it once, just be ready to lose your "investment".

Immediately following Bingo it was going to be time for Graduation. The ladies had to go do something (not sure what), so Mike and I plopped our rear ends in seats in the second row. After a few minutes he had to go to the bathroom so I was saving 3 seats. I had my first saving seats incident. A few minutes after Mike left a man came and sat down within the row of seats I was saving. I mentioned to him that I was saving 4 seats, that my party was going to be right there.

He informs that that you can't save seats. Now, if the theater was packed...that's one thing...but it wasn't. I tried to reason with the guy...but to no avail. I was PISSED

I moved up 4 rows or so and sat and fumed. It was a bit of an interesting situation because I could have pushed a bit, and possibly ended up with us not having seats...which was my concern, so I moved. Mike came back. Now things got funny. I knew I could count on him to push the buttons of the guy...so I explained what happened, and noted the empty seat beside him. I figured it was probably for someone else...and it was. So Mike went down and plopped down right next to the guy! Naturally he said he was saving the seat for his wife...and Mike said "oh, you can't save seats" and sat there drinking his beer for a few minutes. Then Mike looked over and asked "how does it feel to be a total Jacka**?". They shared some words and then Mike came back up. It was funny to watch because I knew the guy got pissed...but it was totally unnecessary and the guy took away our good seats to prove a point.

Now, in his defense, he later came up and talked with us and apologized. Apparently he had the same thing happen to him a row up from where we were, so he was pissed. I pointed out to him that maybe screwing someone else over wasn't the best way to respond. He was from Great Brittain and didn't want his American friends to be upset. Pretty big of him to come up and apologize...so that helped. But still...it was annoying. Yes, it sucks that you don't get the seat you want...but if people want to come early to save seats, why shouldn't they be able to?? (I know, I know, it's against the rules, but you were up on deck enjoying yourself while I was waiting in line...that's your choice...and mine!)

The graduation was cool...they show some neat video and pictures of the kids (and for the second time in two cruises neither of my kids were in either. I'm not sure if they just aren't there at the right time or what. It's annoying cause we would have loved to see them up there! But it was alot of fun, and is a really neat touch that Disney did.

We only really got one picture:



as it was dark. I definately recommend your kids do this...they get a free shirt and graduation cap...which is cool. Again, free is relative. huge expense for a cruise and $.30 worth of free stuff!

After graduation we rushed back to the rooms to get dressed for Semi-Formal night. I have to say that I enjoyed getting dressed up alot more on this cruise than the last one. Maybe it's cause this time I have those kinds of clothes, but it was kind of cool. Why we have Semi-Formal and Formal night...I don't know.

Dinner was a Lumiere's and was Lobster night! Everyone except Kathryn and Connor had Lobster. The last time we were on the cruise I wasn't impressed with the Lobster and it was a repeat this time. Especially now that I live in New England we are spoiled by tender tasty Lobster. The Lobster they serve is tasty, but chewy, and I don't like the way they cook it. Oh, I ate it. Don't get me wrong, I ate it!

DS4 got chicken fingers and ketchup. I don't think I gave you this pic before...but it was a cool way to present ketchup.

Holy hidden mickey batman!

After dinner we headed to Who Wants to be a Mousekteer! We remember 2 years ago when that was held in the Walt Disney Theater. There were tips such as pick an empty row because you increase your chances. And if you went all the way up you would win a cruise! So we were excited to try that again and then noticed it was in Sudio Sea. Hmmm, how do they do the numbers???

So we went and we were each handed a number. There you go. The prizes were much less...a pin and some sort of crystal thing if you win it all. But what the heck, we sat down and hung out. They kept coming close to our numbers over and over...and then they said they were done. The audience cheered for more and the host (the assistant cruise director, I don't remember his name) said ok, one more. The number pulled was one of ours! it was actuall DNW Kim. But she didn't want to go up so she handed it to Deanna (who is also our resident Disney expert). She grabbed DNS Chris (figuring that since it was Kim's number she should bring a member of our neighbors family) and headed up. Kathryn really wanted to go too, so she also went.

Chris in the hot seat, Deanna and Kathryn too

They answered all the questions correctly and got their pins and the crystal thing. They gave them 3 pins for the three of them...which lead to issues because there were 4 kids. So I went in and begged and pleaded and managed to get another one. persistance pays off!!

Just saw the pin in a buy it now auction for $250! huh, wonder if anyone will pay that. if you want to buy one for $250, message me and I'll steal it from my children and send it to you!

After that we went toward the Walt Disney Theater for Disney Dreams...and took some pics along the way...

I told you, us and Goofy...it's amazing.

our neighbors...

I wasn't that impressed with Disney Dreams. Although for the first time we didn't save seats and discovered that down the left side there was plenty of room pretty far up. maybe all that waiting and going early was a waste of time! I remember not thinking Disney Dreams was that great 2 years ago...and I should have skipped it. I won't bore you with what it is about...I'm sure you can find that somewhere else!

So tonight was the night for the Midnight Buffet! And we did what any good parent would do....we went to bed! yes! maybe we did it right this time!

So, until next we meet...

Next up: Chapter 15 Snorkling and losing in paradise

That is hilarious! I can so see us doing that same thing!

How is it possible that we take weeks to write part of our trip report and when we do, we basically write the same thing?

2 questions

1. You said that Deanna is an avid scrapbooker. My wife is also very ga-ga over that as well. She would like to know if Deanna found a good scrapbook store a Downtown Disney as well as anywhere else.

B. Key lime pie on-a-stick, how far is the Blonde Giraffe and how many could you eat in one sitting? lol!! I happen to 'kinda like desserts to the power of 10', so that is the prime objective of my Key West day.

Gord, this is Deanna speaking and the best place for scrapbook supplies was the World of Disney. It continues to amaze me how much stuff there is out there! They have some unique items that you can't find at a regular scrapbook store.

As far as the Blonde Giraffe...I don't know how far exactly it is, but we walked there with 4 kids ranging in ages from 4 to 9, so since they all made it, it wasn't too bad of a walk. BTW, Drew managed to eat 2 pies on a stick at that sitting, but his highlight this Christmas was our neighbors ordered him 12, yes 12, frozen chocolate dipped key lime pie on a stick. He was in heaven when he found out about it!

We here on Long Island in NY call it USeless Air.....never on time, first to get bumped off the runway, and flights cancelled are there all time highs. Great trip report...I'm in for the long haul....can't wait to get the next installment.....although many have already....I'm just beginning!

So I've decided that the first thing we're going to do after I graduate from nursing school is go on a Disney cruise, thanks to this trip report.


However, it's entirely rude of you to go back to your "real life", rather than finishing this trip report. The nerve.

Really, I'm disgusted.

Great TR. It made me think of a few questions for our upcoming Western in March. Can the kids be dropped off in the kids clubs on the first night? Is there a charge for the 7 mile beach? Is the $8 on Paradise Beach just for the trampoline or is it the beach entrance fee? Would you do Paradise Beach again? It sounds like you didn't really care for it. Would you do 7 mile beach again?

See, that's just not good. Lost a reader cause real life got into the way. ARGH!!!

I highly recommend the cruise...if you can do it, it's worth saving up for!!

Yes the kids can be dropped off the first night. They give you a special wristband that first night to identify your kids from those that are just visiting with parents.

By the time we got there, no charge on the 7 mile beach. but that could be because folks had come and gone. if you go there first thing you might have to (some other TR's talk about this I'd bet, not that I'd encourage you to go to another writer and not just sit and wait for me to continue...but I just don't have that info!!!)

The $8 pays for the umbrella and chairs, floats, the water trampoline and a giant iceburg that you can climb up and slide down. But those things really are geared for the older kids.

I would definately do 7 mile beach again, but not Paradise Beach. Next time in mexico, I think I'll stay on the boat!!!
