Have 1 question....where did you get your shirts done/designed? I am looking to do something exactly like that for my hubby, kids & I. We wanted to make up special shirts, but nothing too crazy & I like that yours were very simply done, but super cute!

Rachael
I had someone on the creative designs board do the names for me and one of them also had that cruise pic I sued for the back, then I printed them on iron on transfers and ironed them onto white shirts, wala!!!

Great TR! You've really got me in the mood for our cruise in December! You've also convinced me that we need to do custom shirts (as usual--but I was thinking of skipping it this time.)

we woke up pulling back into castaway cay! We were oing to run the 5k this morning so we had to eat and be at the gangway righ when people got off the ship to run with the group. I ate a VERY light breakfast since we were about to run.




we stepped outside....it was sssoooo hot!!! WHy were we doing this again?!?!


we took off and all the super fast people were gone haha


I decided to have a little fun and take some pictures





running down the airstrip was especially hot b/c of the blacktop and no shade


wwweeeee!







on our way back in we passed my parents going out to the beach so of course my mom cheered and screamed for us to keep running lol! People probbaly thought she was crazy.

fair warning, the trail is longer than a 5k, and in June, wow, so hot! When we got back to the ship the guy in charge gave us water, a towel, and a cool DCL water bottle for participating, score!




we hung out at the beach, ate lunch, went back to our chairs and some dark clouds appeared. Mom and dad went back to the boat but we stayed another 30 minutes or so




Running that 5k just wiped me out, I was so tired! I think we went back and took a nap before dinner.
We were back in Animators again for dinner, and we found out we would have to come to breakfast at 6:30!!! ug!


baked alaska!








after dinner we went to the Disney Dreams show, oh I LOVED it, I of course cried at the end, it was so cute!

we said goodbye to our new DIS friends after, and took a picture


we were pretty tired as usual, so I am pretty sure Bobby went and got more pizza and we walked around the top of the ship again, and then went o bed since we had to get up so early the next morning!

up next: goodbye ship, hello Wilderness Lodge

the alarm went off WAY too early, but luckily since Disney basically forces you to pack the night before, it didn't take us long. I was petrified of forgetting to have clothes to wear the next day so i checked 3 times to make sure I had clothes.
breakfast was very early, so we headed to animators half asleep!


breakfast was pretty fast, felt kind of rushed, so we ate, walked to the lobby and were kind of like..."ok...I guess we get off now..." lol! It was sort of odd! the banner made me sad



I was honestly dreading getting off the boat. The only other cruise I have taken was carnival and we stood in line FOREVER trying to get off the boat and through customs, so I was VERY shocked when t was SO EASY! we told the luggage guy what section our stuff was in, he got it, dad and I got the car, and we were out! wow all in under 15 minutes, loved it! Gold start for Disney on that one!

As we left the lot, I was sad, but at the same time, I knew we still had two nights at the Wilderness lodge on the concierge floor so i was excited for that! We waved bye bye to the mickey boat until next year

I have a few pictures/stories from our 2 nights at WL, should I just tack them on to the end of this report right here?

Ok so we were so happy with the debarking process, so smooth! we drove BACK to DIsneyworld for our 2 nights at the Wilderness Lodge. My parents stayed here last December, but I never had so I was excited to try somewhere new!

When we got to WL we figured our rooms wouldnt be ready, it was only 8:45 or 9:00, but it was! they ahd us in conencting rooms which was nice. we got our luggage out of the car and brought it up!
















our view














it was still so early, guess what we did?
Ate breakfast, again, in the concierge lounge lol!

i'm not sure lol




views from the lounge









after breakfast, we took the boat to the Magic Kingdom!
