I can so relate. I rode it twice on our 2nd Castaway Cay day, when it was nice and sunny. William happened to be in line behind me, so we chatted while waiting to ride. It was fun getting to know him a bit... but when I got to the raft I kind of dumped myself in (not the most graceful), so I was a bit worried about the end of the ride.

The first time I rode it I laughed all the way down. I didn't even care that I had to roll out of the raft. I had to go again so I could ride it with my eyes open.

We wound up going on the Duck around 10:30 that night. It was all lit up, but not as much as Zoe's face was. She was beyond excited, and it was a very special time for us both! I don't think I'll ever forget that.
Connor wanted to do the Duck at night but we just ran out of time.

Thanks for the video. We traveled at the same time. Saw us in the Dis Store and also at the kids club sign up counter. Thanks.

Happy -belated- Thanksgiving, everyone!

We have a dummy cruise re-booked for late 2013, but we still haven't figured out what we want to do for our next sailing. Anyone going soon?

We have the dummy booked also, but are waiting until sometime in 2014 to go. Hopefully the 2014 dates will be released soon and they won't raise the prices.
