Another lonnnggg month til our own vacation (no cruise, just Florida), but, until then, this is the closest I'm going to get to water that's not frozen!

She was like that at all of the restaraunts. By the end of the trip though she would make her order and then look at me and ask, "Can I go take pictures now?" With the same tone that a four year old would ask if they could go play.

DH and I didn't go swimming the whole time we were on the ship because it was so crowded most of the time.

The pool with nobody in it and nobody around at the time was the adult only pool. That picture was really the only time besides late at night the pool was empty.

I'm going, I'm going on more installments and MORE pictures.

Your long month is going to go by so fast and before you know it your gonna be back in sunny Orlando and WDW.

I can imagine it being rather crowded, especially with a lot of kids on the ship. I'd love to go on the Disney Wonder but not sure how much I actually would like a cruise But I do love your pictures.

All aboard the Disney Wonder!

So DH and I headed back to the stateroom to get ready for the muster drill. Here are some pictures don't we look fabulous?







Now can I just say this was the worst part of the entire cruise. Talk about a mess and complete and utter chaos. First we were on the side of the ship that had the sun beaming down right on us and it was so freakin hot with all these people around you. And then picture if you will.....tons of people, alot who did not speak very good english and had at least 3 to 4 children with them who were running around and being completely rude and obnoxious in the burning sun.

http://

The CM's were telling them again, and again, and again to line up and have the children in front of them, of course they didn't understand, or they just didn't care.

http://

I was getting mad, nobody was listening to anything anyone was saying and all I could think was "well if the ship goes down for some reason everybody in this area is going to go down with it".

I felt so bad for this CM, I think she had finally had enough and all about gave up.

http://

Anyway after about 15min or so they let us go and I all about flew outta there, I could not stand to be next to those people any longer and I was roasting to death.

So we got back to the room and hung out in there longer then we meant to enjoying the air conditioner and time got away from us so we missed most of the sail away party. When I realized what time it was we hauled butt up to Deck 9 but it was pretty much to late.

On the way out of the room I snapped this shot of DH.

http://

This is one of the murals on the wall when you are in the elevator.

http://

http://

http://

So we reached Deck 9 and the first thing I realized is it had gotten cold and windy. It was a good thing I took my sweater with me. We headed over to the 24hr. drink station and I got myself some coffee to warm me up. Then as we headed up to Deck 10 to get some photos we heard the most glorious sound ever and I was so thankful that we hadn't missed it.

THE DISNEY WONDER WAS LEAVING PORT AS THE HORN BLARED "WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR"

It actually brought tears to my eyes. I don't know if that has happened with other first time Disney cruisers but boy oh boy was I touched.

So after I had my moment, we walked around taking pictures.

I tried to get on the side that was facing the Disney Terminal but that area was packed of course and I didn't feel like trying to shove my way in. DH managed to find me some of the streamers that got left around after the sail away party so that I could add them to my scrapbook later.

http://


Lots more pictures coming up........hopefully tonight!!!!!!

O.k..so I am LOVING your TR and the pictures!!! I'm sorry that you had a terrible time during the safety drill. And it's rather unfortunate when you get people who can't understand English---makes it that much worse!! Oh well, at least you got through it And I'm hoping you had an amazing time.

http://

So then I wanted DH to see the secret Deck on Deck 7 so we headed down there. I took some photos along the way off pictures on the walls throughout the ship. There are so many and they are all so cute.

http://

http://

http://

Then we finally got to the Deck and it was completely deserted which I already expected. It was very peaceful and a nice spot for DH and I to be alone for a bit to really soak up the fact that we were on the DISNEY CRUISE!

http://

http://

http://

When we finally left, the first showing of the Golden Mickey's was going to be just starting so we decided to go see that. (Little did we know this was the only show we got to see while on board)

Here are some more pictures for you.

http://

http://

http://

http://

It was a really cute show and I'm glad I got to see it.

So we leave the theater and head back to our stateroom to get ready for dinner at Palo. When we arrived our stateroom host whose name was Jay and he was great had already done our turndown service for the night. This is what we found.

http://

I love towel animals, they are so cool.

So we relaxed for a bit and we wondered what are table mates would think when we didn't show up for dinner on the first night of the cruise. We had the late dinning rotation which turned out to be a blessing for us later on, I don't know how people do the early rotation, I couldn't handle it. But I guess if you have kids, ya kinda have to. DH and I will get to that point in our lives at some time.

Finally we started to get ready for our dinner at Palo. I was super excited because I had read all about it and was looking forward to the yummy food and romantic setting.

Hiya!

Just spent the last hour or so reading your TR from the beginning. How awesome so far. You are hilarious, and had me laughing out loud many times =)

First of all.. CONGRATULATIONS on your recent nuptials! Your photos are simply gorgeous, and I love the fact that you had your wedding on Halloween. Your dress is fabulous! I love different colored wedding dresses.

I cannot believe that little snot on the TTA. What a rude little monster! His is coming to him.. that's for sure. And that lady with her rude comment to you. Seems like she was the one who needed the pot... hehe. What an uptight bleep!

Tell your hubby that he is an awesome picture taker. I love the Epcot globe pictures at night. Awesome!

I'm glad you ended up feeling better.. after such a rough start. That must've been so draining both physically and emotionally. But you marched through like a trooper

You mentioned about sitting side by side on Splash. I had to go over to my fridge and look at our ride photo from it. We're sitting with DBF behind me... same as in DL. Ehhh? Also, I totally agree with the Pirates comment. I felt that WDW's Pirates was awkward too. DL's is way better in that department. I think the boats are just too small on WDW's version, and it almost felt cramped, know what I mean?

Me and DBF are located in the Bay Area, and are planning to head down to DL for my Birthday in April (during my spring break.) I think you and DH should tag along for the trip, being that you're so close and all. LOL. Plus you seem like cool people Okay.. now I just sound like a stalker. But it's not everyday you get to meet people who share your love of Disney!

Okay.. now that I've written you a novel, hehehe. Can't wait to hear more about your cruise!

I guess I will start with the usual introduction of myself and my DH. He and I have actually known each other since 1995. We dated briefly but DH is five years older then me and at that time I was just a wild girl and refused to be tied down in a relationship. Well anyway we ended up becoming much better friends and actually stayed in touch for a long time before we lost track of each other. Long story short, and lots of drama in between we finally got back in touch with each other about 3 years ago. I ended up inviting him to go to Disneyland with me and some friends and he actually took the day off from work so that he could go. I was surprised and thought that was cool but didn't think anything else of it. Well the day came and I went to his house to pick him up, now let me tell you it's not that DH was unattractive back then but when I saw him for the first time in seven years I was blown away, even with him balding which he hates but I don't mind I thought he looked great, so much more mature and attrative to me. Well the whole way to Disneyland which is not far, we flirted like crazy and we both realized how much we had changed and for the better. Anyway and I'm sorry if I'm rambling on now but the day at Disneyland turned out to be fantastic and my friends really liked him and at the end of the day they could tell something was going to happen between us. Within a few weeks of that day and DH and I talking all the time he professed his love for me and said that he loved me when he first met me and never stopped. My heart melted.

So fast forward to now and we are married and happy as can be. Obviously there is alot of history with DH and I, way to much to put on the boards but I think it holds true for DH at least if you love something, then let it go and if it comes back to you then it's meant to be.

So now it's time for who we are now.

Well my name is Kathleen, everyone calls me Kat. I'm 32 and currently have no job. I was born in New Jersey and spent most of my childhood there, but my mom had family in CA so we came to visit here often and eventually moved to CA. Because of that reason I was introduced to Disneyland at a young age and never looked back. I have been a lover of all things disney for most of my life and show no signs of slowing down.

Now DH is Alfonso, we call him AJ, he is 37 and works for Universal Studios Hollywood. Now I know there are mixed feelings for Universal on these boards but I can't help the fact he works there. He works for special events so that makes it a little better because of all the cool parties and people he gets to meet. Aside from the fact he works there he is also a lover of all things disney and always will be.

This is us at Disneyland on Buzz Lightyear

http://

This is our family for now

Our cats Willow and Storm, willow is in the back

http://

And this is Ashley

http://

Well I hope that introduction was okay and you will get a better idea of who we are as this TR goes along. Next up will be a bit about the wedding and a not so great start to the honeymoon.
So DisneyLand made your love strong??? You seem made for each other.. Good.

wow, I wonder why they didn't just take that blue area around the pool and make the entire pool bigger? is this the adult pool?

I'm loving the cruise part of the report too! I have never done one but dream of doing it someday! and I agree, the stateroom looks ok for two people and I probably wouldn't pay extra for a bigger one, besides, on a cruise who wants to be in your room? You should be out on deck looking at the ocean, relaxing with a drink in your hand or doing activities!
