If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Smile THURSDAY JANUARY 15th - DISEMBARK DAY / DWNTWN DISNEY DAY

6:30am = WOW!!!! Felt great to sleep in.
watched the Disney promtional tv channels for a while. Love watching the Adventurers by Disney channel. That's my next Disney related trip ("Spirit of America" via ABD).
7am = took one last b bath. Glad I was "in" with Mousekeeing cuz he kept the room well well stocked with goodies.
8am = received my very last wake up call. BBOOOO!!!
at about 8:25am, I turned around and took one last look at what was my home for the last few days......gheesh! I am ever going to miss home!


8:30am = sauntered on up to Animator's P for my last bit of Disney food. And out of all three of the on board ship restaurants to eat, I would rank this one the best: Best food and best atmopshere.
8:45am: Meet S & C there for some great food & conversation.
9:30a "ish" disembrked from the ship...but wait........ surprise!!
*******
S & C were kind enough to invite me out with them via their car rental to spend the day with them before we all have to head back to the airport!!***


11am: reached Downtown Disney. Had total fun checking out the place. We all ate at Bongos....but.........S just "had" to tell that lady at Bongos that I thought she was cute!!
Here are 2 more pictures from that great place ** HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE WHILE AT DWNTWN DISNEY**

and...

12-1pm: Had fun discovering the art of pin trading - LOVE IT!
even checked out "Once Upon a Toy"

...and these two were very helpful in the helping me pick out my Mr. Potato head parts

...now Disney Quest?? In my opinion....I would skip it. Why? Because one can play video games at home - this is Disney - a place you DON'T have at home (ok....that was just MY opinion...).


...Now "Candy Cauldron?" - Pretty cool place. Worthwhile checking out.

2pm "ish" had a Ghirardeli Milkshake!! YYUUMM!!!!!!

3pm: We all left Dwntown Disney and headed back to the airport. Fought back (yes.....willing to admit) crying on those two cuz it meant the end of a beautiful trip.
4:45pm: Plane left for Dallas Texas. WOW!! I SLEPT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE PLANE RIDE.
9PM: Arrived back home. Tumbled into bed with my i-pod playing Disney music. WHAT A WONDERFUL VACATION.


TIPS / SUGGESTIONS
---------------------
1). It helps to have a basic plan/idea of what you are doing when you go to WDW or DCL.
2). Pack an extension cord, your i-pod, I-pod speakers.
(it is FANTASTIC to listen to Disney music off yer I-pod throughout the day & esp at night in yer stateroom...on LOW)
and ext cord? how many times have you LEFT a battery charger or what not in your hotel room - get home - then remember where you left it?? This way, the extension cord will be a very obvious visual to you to where ALL your techno devices are....and ya won't ferget them!

3). Bring t-w-o pair of inexpensive sun glasses.
4). forget about dieting - this is DISNEY
(besides on average...I walked 9 miles a day while at WDW & 2 while on DCL)
5). take PLENTY of pictures & have fun.
6). jump in & inneract with the Disney characters - it's fun!
7). *BOOK ATLEAST 1 TRIP 2 THE SPA *(be it Grand Floridian Spa or Visa Spa and Salon).
8). REWARD YOURSELF - YOU HAVE WORKED HARD TO GET TO THE HOUSE OF MOUSE.
9). Try something new (once) everyday.
10). Keep a daily blog (trip report)
11). Photo-mats are a must! - make for a great keepsake/memory.
12). leave your laptop & cell phone at home - this is a vacation.

My best memory can be summed up by the following as this was shot while on the Wonder:
(CLICK ON THE VIDEO AND IT WILL PLAY)



and...



But wait.........is it the end???? NO...........!

- Look for me in late September 2009 on over on the "Adventures by Disney" side of Disboards as my next Disney trip will be the Spirit of America trip; Sept 16-26th.

P.S. I gotta pre-trip report for the Sept Adv By Disney trip.....ya gotta check it out!

This really has been a GREAT informative review. We have cruised many other lines, and are trying our first Disney cruise soon.

A few questions:
-Are there any must do's, must see's, or must-eats?
-Is it true that there are no live bands (at the pool or throughout the ship)?
-Is there a live orchestra that plays during the "broadway" type shows, or is that prerecorded music?
-Did they bring on any good entertainment?

Thanks for the great review! Glad you had a great time.

......like your questions! For the "must see and dos" well....."in my opinion" I would suggest:

1) get involved with your fellow cuisers via your DISmeets specific date of sailing. Talk with them in that chat room then later on have a "meet & greet" during your first day on the Disney cruise ship.
2) Participate in "Fish Extenders" while on the cruise.
3) DON'T MISS CASTAWAY CAY!
4) DON'T MISS THE SHOWS! ESP "DREAMS."

MUST EATS: Actually have a sit down breakfast one day. Don't just ALWAYS go to the buffets. Feels nice to be waited on while you are eating your breakfast.


OK....sorry about this but NO LIVE BANDS....but what I have is the next best thing......go out early one morning and shoot some video on your digital camera of whats playing on the jumbotron tv or shoot some video of the ship's bow (forward) as it is pulling away from the dock or any other video -makes for a great keep sake (OR IF YA COMBINE IT WITH CRUISE SONGS....MAKES FOR A GREAT FISH EXTENDER GIFT).....which is by the way what I am currently working on now for my Oct 31st 2009 Disney Magic cruise DISmeets cruisers. (try saying that 3 times quickly with crackers in your mouth!!) HE-HE.
GREAT ENTRTAINMENT: Well....my suggestion is JUMP IN & have a total blast inneracting with the Disney characters! They are totally fun & a delight to talk with - just ya gotta know who they are and their background.
Example: While out at Epcot one day, I asked Beast if he ever had a flea problem. His reaction was just priceless!
But overall, through inneracting with your dinnermates and your fellow cruisers, yes - fair to say you will be able to pick up very quickly what suits your fancy when it comes to entertanment.
"Match Your Mate" was just total fun to watch. So was the "Art of Entertaining" as I now know how to make a swan and monkey towel animal!
WAY COOL!

Oh....and watch out for "Seastian" during one of the shows....can't tell you which one but.....will say with his orchestral backups playing (with him singing "Under the Sea"), it just left me in such a great mood.

ENJOY - feel free to converse more - you will see me also on the Adventures by Disney section of Disboards; look for my "Spirit of America" trip report.

C -YA!

Kris

Cast Away Cay Drinking Age

Thanks for the response.

One more question... is the drinking age at Cast away Cay still 21 even though it is in the Bahamas, or is it 21? Sorry if this is a "dumb" question... never been with DCL or to this island.

......hey - "no worries" in relation to asking "Goofy questions" as there is no such thing as a dumb one. But------with that being said......
I don't know the answer to that question. Wish I did but I don't. My best educated guess is that if you are discreet about it, the "beer police" are not going to be out in force. Now y-e-s.....if one walks around partying like its New Years Eve...well one is bound to be attracting the w-r-o-n-g kind of attention to ones self.
Like, for example..yes - true story......if one just happens to be like that person who jumped off of DCL deck 2 (in yr 1999) & off into the waters....just to try & get back onto the ship just to have your KTTW card show that you are still on the ship......welll THAT'S an excellent example of HOW TO ATTRACT NOT THE ATTENTION YOU WANT TO BE ATTRACTING.
By the way, that person was placed under "House arrest." Gotta love it - what a twit---spent all that money on a DCL cruise and yet spent most of it under House Arrest.
So - hope my answer helps - discretion is the key. Don't misundersand, I had a total blast on my WDW / DCL trip last month - its just I partied NOT like it was Spring Break.

Keeping it real here in Dallas.

- Kris

Yes it is 21 on the ship and Castaway and strictly enforced...both are cashless systems so you must use your room charge, which has the ages of everyone in your cabin on it. So even if you are 21, and you try to by 2 drinks and say there is only you and an under 21 year old in the cabin, they will not let you get the 2 drinks. I know this from first hand experience. Solve the problem by bringing your own liquor onboard...saves money too! I personally did a little of both, brought some and bought some...but since my sis was only 20 I had to make all of hers instead of buy.

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Spa

Hi Kris. Thanks for your TR. We're cruising on the Wonder soon and trying to figure out what spa treatments to book ahead. Can I ask what you had done and if you liked it?
Thanks.

Smile Wdw spa treatment questions....

....hello there!

Glad you asked! While on the Wonder (January 2009), I tried out the Vista Spa and just feel in love with the place! From the Excercise room to the muitlipe-jetted shower facilities inside the salon area, you just can't go wrong with the place.
While there, I did (for one day..$15) the "Rainforest" one day pass. And yes....I plan on buying a weeks pass when I get on the Wonder in October 2009. Why? From the Turkish bath (steam room) to the heated recliners to the multiple jetted showers....it is really a excellent bargain for the price.
**** Now....here is where the fun part begins! ****
From the above experience, I have choosen to buy the "Alone Time" package and from the reviews and pictures and such...well - words just can't describe the "AAAAAHHHHHHHH" feeling you will get when you are done. I thought about doing it when I was on the Wonder but....I "cheap" ed out of it & opted for a daily bubble bath inside my staterom cabin!?!?!!!??!!!

--------------NOT THIS TIME -----------------------

...now the excercise room part of Vista Spa opens up at 6am daily. So, to me...I would suggest partaking in a little of the excericise room (bring your i-pod earphones and you can watch /listen to tv on the monitors while you are walking or jogging and even watch the ocean in front of you of the "Bow tv").....then move on over to the spa portion of it and relax with your day (or daily) pass to the "Rainforest room." (beleive Spa opens up at 8am..please reconfirm this).
And yes...to me I would highly reccommend the "Alone time" spa treatment. I have never been pampered like that & what more of a beautiful way than to be pampered than on the Disney cruise ship. I plan on doing that on one of my sea days.

P.S......just be sure to cap off you evening with nightly room service....ask for cookies and milk or some rice krispy treats...

get it??? have your cookies and milk while you are decompressing after a long but Magical day onboard the Wonder/Magic....

believe room service stops at 11pm...but please reconfirm that.

- ENJOY -

Tipping for room service

Can any one tell us what is customary for tipping for night-time room service?
