Your trip report and pictures have been great. My DH and I have enjoyed reading it so much! We leave in 40 days for our second Wonder cruise and your report has been so entertaining. We can't wait to go!

Love your scrapbook!! I have done some scrapbooking but have found it so time consuming I have not done anything in years. The digital scrapbooking has always intrigued me and the Creating Memories one you did is beautiful! I may have to give it a try.

Thanks again for your time in putting this trip report together!!

Great review. I wish I was with you. I know what you mean about depression. I have it after each WDW trip. I still haven't done a scarpbook from our March trip, so maybe I should get started. I haven't printed all my photopass pics, so I guess I'll get them ordered and start.
I sure hope I can talk DH in doing this cruise. You made it look so fun and wonderful.
How much was the day room at the Hyatt?
Do you think the Disney buss is worth the price? I am debating on just getting a car, but it would be nice not to have to worry and kick back and relax too.

What a great TR!! I loved all the pics! Both the ones you took and the cm on the ship.
I also have the Disney CM digital scrapbooking kit. I have not done my May trip yet but hope to soon so I can give a book to the grandparents for Christmas-they took us on the cruise.
The Til We Meet Again party looked great-we skipped it since our girls were young and exhausted-not for our next cruise though.
Great,great report!

You all look like you had such a great time. It makes me wish it was next year already.

Just wanted to say what a great trip report I am in the early planning stages for our 2010 holiday and wondering if we could tag a 3/4 night cruise onto it. After seeing your photo's I definitely want to set sail

Thanks for posting such an entertaining report

Loved the report! Could you tell how you made that scrapbook? I loved it! I have never done scrapbooking, but I might like digital ones.
Thanks!

Your photos reminded me of our trips when our girls were little. We are going this year and they are teens. It just isn't the same at all. Enjoy those magical trips with your little ones. They are precious!

You're welcome! It's been a lot of fun to write. The digital scrapbooking is great! It is so easy and there is no mess.

Thanks for the kind words. The day room at the Hyatt was about $100.00 including all extra taxes and fees. It was worth it to not have to sit in the terminal for 6 hours.

I think the DCL buses are worth it, just for the convenience. They may be a bit more expensive, but to be able to relax and get excited was worth it.

Thanks! We almost skipped the Till We Meet Again, but decided to skip the show that evening instead and rest up for the "final goodbye!"

Thanks! The scrapbooking is great. It is so easy and there is no mess to clean up afterward. Just click save and exit the program.

Thanks! I definitely am taking advantage of the girls being young right now, they love WDW and had a great time on the cruise.

The scrapbooking is through Creative Memories, you would have to find a consultant to help you with the program. Prior to using this, I used to make my books through shutterfly.com It is very easy and is all online. You need to upload your pictures to the site and then create a photo book.

Your report was awesome..I do suggest you catch Disney Dreams if you get to go again...it was awesome!!! We didn't go to the "goodbye" party as we just were too tired and I guess weren't sure how it worked...we showed up at 11..the time our navigator said and it was all meet and greet with photo ops...so we will try to do it next time...cause surely there will be a next time!LOL
