I have read so much about how awesome this place is and am looking forward to seeing it all for myself! I plan on being on the island as soon as the ship is cleared. I didn't book any real shore excursions for this day, just the Extreme Getaway package. That includes a stingray feeding, bike rentals, float rental, and snorkeling equipment for the day. I just plan on exploring, taking pictures, laying on the beach, and swimming. I just want to be able to relax and enjoy everything. And maybe get a picture with Jack Sparrow.

26 days to go now!

I hope your day at Castaway cay is everything you hope it will be, it looks a beautiful place and i'd love to visit someday. Can't wait to see your pics from your day there

I want gorgeous, sunny, hot weather for our cruise. I've never been on a jet ski. You'll have to tell me all about it at dinner that night.

I love how excited you are! LOL

Day 8

Disney Day 8

This is probably going to be one of the more relaxing days. I don't really have anything major planned.

We'll leave the Wonder but on our way to BCV! I booked a studio room and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we have a decent view. Something other than a parking lot! We're going to be there on the early side so I'm assuming our room will not be ready. So it's off to Stormalong Bay we go, maybe grab a snack at the pool, and then we'll hit Typhoon Lagoon. Can anyone say Crush n Gusher? Best. Waterslide. Ever.

After the waterpark, we'll come back and relax at BCV for awhile (hopefully our room will be ready!), maybe hang out by the pool again (I hear it's phenomnal!). We have a reservation at Hoop Dee Doo for this night at 7:15. I'm really looking forward to it, I've heard nothing but good things and we have cat 1 seating. Plus, Sangria is included!!

After dinner, we'll probably head over to MK for the remainder of EMH. Splash Mountain and BTMRR in the dark are two of my favorite things to do there!

23 days to go! Can you believe it??

Day 8 is going to be great because you get to RELAX. The BCV pool is truly amazing. Now, you probably will feel a little post-cruise blues but it better only last like one second since you're going back to the World!

I hope you buy a new memory card for your camera. I think I speak for everyone on this PTR when I say we want a TON of pictures!!

Payday was yesterday so next week I'm going to Best Buy to buy a new memory card. I think they're having a 2 for $20 deal.

I'm also planning on buying a new computer either right before or right after the cruise so I can upload all my pictures. My comp at home is garbage and I usually rely on Joe's computer to do picture stuff but I know if I don't get the TR going, I'll be hearing it.

I promise to take TONSSSSSSSS of pictures! I was going through my photos on my old memory card and 300+ are of NKOTB alone. If I took that many at concerts, I'm sure I'll take many many more on vacation.
