After a very long and painful absence I am excited to announce my long anticipated return to the DCL Trip Report forums with a brand-spanking new and revolutionary (drum roll please) TRIP REPORT!
woohoo im finally here always late to the party i know.. thanks for the link didnt know if you would start a pre trippy but glad you did!

Plunging and Springing a Leak on Castaway Cay, not to mention since it is always 5 'O Clock where we are, wasting away at...not one, not two, but THREE Margaritavilles! There will also be a few Tricks and Treats along the way.... plenty to keep you occupied, and hopefully enthralled!
oh you just mentioning 3 margaritavills get me jealous!

I won't talk too much about us, because, well, trust me, later on you'll probably wish I'd just shut up. But I'm Jen. I'm 36, and I'm a cruiseaholic. I have a few interests besides cruising and those include Disney, video editing and production (a-HA!), digital scrapbooking, fires, and photography. The fires part- just don't ask.I JUST HAVE TO... whats with the fire!?

If you get lost along the way, or if we just chatter too much for you in between the segments of what you really want to read, here are direct links to each installment:
oh but the chatter is half the fun

Happy Halloween!
Jen

Oh thanks so much! I've been reading yours too- a lot of the time I don't end up posting on TR's since I save them offline to read while I'm at work (no internet for us) This should be a fun ride!!!

Yeah he has come a long way since he had to join the Dis just to tell everyone I was in a car accident AND our internet went out like a week before the last cruise!!!

Yes you know someone is....very anti-PTR but If I bill it as an introduction
it's all good. I figured it was pretty close and besides I'm jealous of all the PTR love.

hee hee...I tried waiting to see how long it would take you to find it but you know me, no patience. When you had posted on the one right above it I figured it was time to clue ya in!

Can't wait, I don't think we are going to hang out in the KW one, just shop. Cayman has the pool so we'll hang there and booze it up, Cozumel probably again will just shop but we will be coming straight from Nachi where we should have bellies full of beer!

I never told you? I <3 Fire. In a very odd Beavis & Butthead "FIRE! FIRE! FIRE! kindof way. I know famous fires. I peruse burnt places on youtube. My favorite movie of all time is the Towering Inferno, with Backdraft a close second. Now do you wish you didn't ask?

..The Best Laid Plans

We are four days from vacation and just six from the cruise. aside from the hurricane around here caused by packing (!), the tropics seem relatively tame and hopefully they'll stay that way and it will be smooth sailing ahead.

Here are a few more details of what we have planned!

Thursday 10/28: We will be leaving this morning, stopping for our pre-cruise breakfast tradition at Cracker Barrel. We will drive straight through to the port and check in at Country Inn and Suites. We are hoping to snag a kids' suite, we were told they are first come-first serve. (Considering we bid through Priceline we should just be glad if we end up with a room that HOLDS all of us, as the guarantee is only for a room for 2! )

Once we check in, we'll grab a bite on the road and head back to the Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This will be our first time, and although this is sure to be one of the busiest parties of the year, I suspect it will be a whole lot of fun. we will be decked out in the height of Dis fashion: Halloween tie dye mickeyhead shirts and dresses!



Friday 10/29: Plans are to have a lazy day, get up late, check out Ron Jon's and spend some time on Cocoa Beach. It's Air Show weekend in Cocoa Beach so crowds will be crazy everywhere. We have an early dinner reservation at Grills at 3:45 for our pre-cruise Dis Meet. After dinner and watching the ships sail out of port we are bringing the party back to the Radisson pool where more cruisers will join us for a fun evening.

Saturday 10/30: Embarkation! We hope to be on the first shuttle to the port from CIS. We will be wearing the logo shirts I made picture below) After boarding we have the Dis meet in the Promenade Lounge at 3 PM. Our rooms are 6132 (Cat 6 verandah) and 6133 (Cat 11 inside). We have requested a specific rotation, which is APPLAPL, which will put us hopefully in Animator's the first night for dinner. I also hope to be able to enjoy some of the first night events we always seem to miss, like Magic Quest.




Sunday 10/31 Key West, FL ~Happy Halloween!~ If all goes well with our dining rotation, this should be our character breakfast morning. After that, it is straight to our Dis Trick-or-Treat Scavenger Hunt event prior to docking in Key West. Once heading into port we will first walk to the Kino sandal shop to buy shoes, then board the Old Town Trolley to take us around old town. We will visiting Margaritaville Key West, The La Concha (a great old hotel we've stayed at before that has a great rooftop overlook), the Southernmost point, the world's best fish sandwiches for lunch at BO Fishwagon, Key Lime Pie on a stick (chocolate dipped, of course), and anything else that strikes our fancy. we'll hop back onboard the ship for Disney's Halloween events, Trick or Treat and the Deck party, then get back off and head to Mallory Square for sunset festivities, for a short time, and then back onboard to watch the actual sun set from our verandah. Kids will be off to their clubs and we have Palo.

Monday 11/1 At Sea: We start off this day with back to back meals at Palo, this time brunch. Beyond that, who knows, should be a fun and relaxing day onboard! This is Formal night and we are looking forward to the new Villains show.

Tuesday 11/2 Grand Cayman: Today we have the Captain Marvin's Half Day Stingray City & snorkel charter. We have decided to do this private excursion which will be exclusively for members of our Dis Meet thread! Afterwards we will head to Margaritaville to relax by the rooftop pool and enjoy some (what else?) Margaritas!

Wednesday 11/3 Cozumel: Today we will be going on another Dis-Meet only excursion to Nachi Cocom Beach Club. This is a gorgeous beach (where they film the Corona commericals), and it's going to be even better filled up with my new friends! There's even a scavenger Treasure Hunt for the kids! Afterwards, another Margaritaville, after all that booze, hopefully we somehow make it back to the boat!

Thursday 11/4 At Sea: Gloriously, we have nothing planned at all this day but to relax and have a blast!

Friday 11/5 Castaway Cay: We will spend the day on the family beach, anxious to explore Pelican Plunge and Spring A Leak!

Saturday 11/6 Port Canaveral we will be among the first off the boat, as we will need to rush home for the kids' playoff game.

Packing is almost 75% done, and aside from a few last minute purchases, we're ready to get on with it!!!!

Wow - I just realized that if you switch out KW for CC you have our 2008 cruise!! Course, there is so much to do on all of those islands that you can visit several times and have new things to do.

OMG - Magic Quest on the WBTA was hysterical!!! I was actually hoping that since they had it early in the cruise (like the third night), they would schedule another night later in the cruise but they didn't . Definitely something not to miss!!!

I forgot to mention that I can't believe this will be your first MNSSHP . I've been to three (my first was a regular WDW vacation, the second the night before the DD and the last one the Sunday night after the WBTA). Dave and Amy have been more than this (they went twice before the DD - once on there week vacation and then with me the night before - and twice on their honeymoon).

I think you will have some crowds but definitely not as bad as the weekend parties will be! You will have a great time! I love Hallowishes and the Boo to You Parade.
