I guess, I don't know if I have a desire to watch an all villians show either.
It was just soooooo cheesy!! Now, I realize, being a Disney fan, that a lot of Disney IS cheesy and I am all for some extra fromage but the cheese factor in this show is ridonculous!!

Come on, Jafar dancing in a circle with an animatronic Iago, singing "Wind Beneath My Wings" ???? PUHLEASE!!!!!!!

I would probably go again to see it but ONLY for the Yzma and Kronk part and then I would leave

I don't think it's spooky at all (except for the 3 fates from Hercules maybe)....I think maybe Disney realized that doing a show about villains might be a little risky with the little ones so they went overboard (pun intended, of couse ) trying to make it cute and fun and light-hearted but they failed miserably

But remember, that is MY opinion....like I said from the very start, all my reviews and comments are based on my opinion and sometimes my opinion is not the popular one. What I hate, you may like! You never know!

When I spoke to Baltimore (nickname of a TA we befriended on this trip) he said he loved all the shows

I highly suggest everyone see all the shows and then form their own opinions of them


But I will say....and I know I have said it twice already....the show was REALLY well acted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great trip report, Cass!!! Can't wait until I can experience it for myself in October. Until then I will gaze longingly at yours.

Do we get to find out about your merchandise story, since it is after Saturday?

That will make a great location for a lot of impromptu meets in the afternoon, kinda like the ones we had almost daily back in Oct 2009. Nothing better than just running into people and stopping to have a drink and catch up on the day or the cruise.
Great meets.

Love the looks of vibe & for tweens. Those lounge chairs on the deck for the vibe look awesome.

I have to admit I am a bit worried about The Edge Tween Club. I hope there are a lot of activites that involve sports, as my Alex (DS11) is not a "social network" type of tween. He is still a boy--not even close to all the social aspects of tween/teen life. And while I think it's good that they will have video games, I have to say that that is something he can do at home--and does. Now maybe if the video games are involed in tournaments or some such organized activity that would be better. There are lots of boys on our 6/12/11 cruise who are his age, so I imagine there will be at least one with his same interests; luckily he is not shy. I don't know--a mom has to worry, eh?

Thanks for all the great pics of the spa, too. Did they give y'all a list of services with prices in your stateroom? I'd love to do something, but obviously that would depend upon cost.

You are a doll for doing such a wonderfully detailed report for us, Cass!
Yeah, think Derek & Bryce will enjoy the VIBE.

Yes, once the trippie is all done, I will get to work on my Dream Video It will be similar to the ones I've already done and are on my Cassworld Site.

I think I might be doing 2 versions though...one for online for Cassworld and one (DVD version) that I will be sending all my DCL/Dream clients who book with me

I will post a link here when it is done

My Merchandise Story

Before I left for Orlando, I had checked online to see if there were any special Vinylmations being offered on the Dream. I know very little about Vinyls but my SIL Heather and friends Mike & Robin are crazy for them

Since Heather was watching Kira for me back home, I wanted to get her something special and I was hoping for vinyls.

I found out that on the Maiden Voyage, they were selling a special two-set Donald Duck Vinyl and that if there were any left, they would be for sale on our cruise.

At that point, Mike & Robin had asked me if I could get a set for them too if they were still available.

I knew I would have to be at the stores at 6pm when they first opened but I had no idea what I was in for

I tried looking through the windows to figure out which store would be carrying the Vinyls and then I spotted them inside, so I waited outside the proper store.

Well, when 6pm came and they opened the doors, people went MAD!!!

There were 3 or 4 people, the first ones to storm the doors, that were particularly awful! They practically ran over the CM who opened the door and then bee-lined it for the 9" Vinyls.

At that point, I entered the store too and was being pushed everywhere and one lady pushed passed me and knocked me to my right and my camera ended up getting bashed on the door frame and my lens cap came off and fell to the ground.

I tried to pick it up but people were herding into the store like there was no tomorrow!

Finally, a nice lady stopped so that I could bend down and pick it up and then continue on into the store.

There was one guy who was literally jumping 2-3 feet off the floor to grab as many big Vinyls as possible off the top shelf. This guys had no concern for anyone else and ended up hitting a few people.

I was trying to avoid this jerk while still looking around for those Donalds.

I spied a shelf over by the other entrance...people were grabbing whatever was on there so I grabbed one to see what it was and it was the Donalds!!!

Just as I put my arm back to grab another one....the very last one...another guy starting reaching for it but I got there first (he also had one already) and said "Darn, so close" At least he was a good sport about, unlike other people I heard!!

So, with two Donalds in my arms...I was happy and I headed for the cash register before someone tackled me for them

While I was waiting, some people ended up knocking down an entire display!! It was chaos!

I chuckled and smiled with great delight when the jerk with the 6 big Vinyls was told by a CM "Only 2 per stateroom"

After that, I left that store and went to the other one, the one with all the Dream merchandise and while I slowly walked around the store, I listened to all the people...they were nuts!! Frantically grabbing all sorts of stuff, complaining to themselves and to CM's, yelling and running around

After hearing some stories from the CM's about the MV, I was glad that I wasn't on that sailing!! cus this one bad enough









...

Here's a photo I took just before the store opened....



And here's the Vinyl Set I was able to get for H, M & R

Woo-Hoo.....Sounds like Black Friday at K-Mart!

Now, don't you wish you would have taken Jiu-Jitsu lessons before you went? Bet you didn't think you'd need them....Now you know

Good job on your quest and keeping your cool.
