I hear ya. My wife and I really enjoy cruising so I always look for an opportunity to go on one. This is the first time we get to take our girls and they are very excited. It has been a blast watching their excitement and anticipation grow with each passing day! It’s kinda like we had two Christmas's this year!

I have learned so much, that my family has named me the official cruise director for any follow-on trips. If you have never been on a cruise, which many of us have not, I don't think you can learn enough about what goes on.

But, your pre-trip reports have been outstanding. You girls are adorable. I can't wait to read your post trip report. Carry on "my-man"!!!
Thanks for the kind words and have a great time with your Family! You are now 1 month away from your special day! I know you guys are getting excited!

Thanks! I know some are a bit blurry due to the rapid pace that many were taken but they convey what was happening! Love the I"insert preferred character" Avatar that you and others have they are really cool!

Chapter 11 The Hunt Winds Down

Chapter 11 More Hunt Fun

The kids run into to the kitchen to open the freezer. Inside they find another package, they grab it and run back to the living room.

Sweet Child, “OOOOOO its cold!” Yup been in there all night sweetie!

Mini Me, “It’s swishy!” Swishy? Its not supposed to be swishy, did something melt? Is it nasty? Is they clue ruined? Will Barbara ever be able to tell John how she really feels about him? (Sorry flipped into Soap Opera mode)

No not swishy, all is well, see?



Yup another stellar moment in photography! Can you tell that the excitement is really revving up? For those of you who are not Neo and cannot manipulate the Matrix to tell what you are looking at, it is a pair of Mickey Mouse Coloring Books. Nice and thin, really easy to put into a freezer stuffed with holiday goodness and foods!

Now for the next Clue!

Are you tired yet?
Do You need to Rest Your Head?
For your next clue go look under your bed!

See you next week for the final clue! Isn’t the excitement palpitating? Seriously though, thank you to those of you who have been following my PTR and for your kind comments!

WOW! That's a pretty heady comparison! I hope my writing skills are up to snuff! However I am pretty sure that there won't be 5+ seasons! Thanks for the support and compliment!

Oh, man, I just found this report today and since it had started so long ago I thought I would eventually get to the end. I can't believe I have to wait like everyone else!

I was telling my adult daughter something the other day I had learned on this board and she said you don't talk to anyone do you? Um, NO? I guess I could never tell her I am halfway to being a Mouseketeer. You all give me so much comfort that I am not the only geek obcessed with this board. My family thinks I am crazy, they just don't know the fun they are missing do they? It gives you months of enjoyment for only the price of a 3 or 4 or 7 day cruise!

Great trip report Ashman and I hope the cruise is more fun than the planning has been.

You have to wait? I booked this thing over 450 days ago! Its funny how friends and family can mock and chide our DIS life but sooner or later, they come around, "Hey can you ask those people a question!" Glad you are enjoying the read and Welcome to the DIS! Glad you are here! About 20 more posts and you'll have those ears!

Thanks! What fun, the kids were ecstatic to see their names on the Tickets. Sweet Child recognized the DCL logo on the envelope and said, “SEE! It has to be our tickets that’s the sign!”
