HELLO Missy!!!!!! Glad you are here!!! I was wondering if you ever decided to do a TR!!!??? I am looking forward to the 7 day cruise over Thanksgiving, I am sure the Fantasy will be as beautiful as the Dream!!! How much fun! You will have lots to discover over time! I will try to share as much as I can, and when we get back from the summer cruise that will have more kid info!!! I just ordered my FE from Stitches and Bows!... LOL!

I was so excited to read it, first we are going to BLT for the 1st time as new DVC owners in 37 days and in August we are going on the Dream. When we cruise this summer we will be at Kidani for 4 nights and then 3 nights on the Dream. This will be our 2nd DCL.

I loved what you had to say about capacity, that makes so much sense. Also, regarding crowds, that what I expected. It depends on where you are and at what time. I found that with our last cruise.

Envious that it was just DHubby and you, but then again we will be with our 3 DSs who are all old enough to be on their own.

We are also going to be staying inside staterooms. Thanks again. Can not wait for the rest of your report.

Oh you will have a great time at BLT AND on your cruise! We did a 3 night cruise last February. The inside stateroom is fun. I have some great porthole photos to share! Congrats on the DVC!!!
Welcome!!!!

Still getting caught up. I need a vacation to get caught up form vacation. Next week. I have only a snow day make-up on Monday. After that, I am free! I can DIS and DIS and DIS.

I want to visit a ship one day - just to look at the actual size of the rooms.

Watching the sun go down.

After we were cleaned up we went to the Vista café on deck 4 and grabbed these fabulous frozen Lattes – blended with ice cream OMG. We explored the kids area and some more of the ship. I didn't take photos of the kids areas. I didn't because our kids were not there, and I didn't want them to think I was taking pictures of kids! But I saw many children having a great time, and we could peek in to see the different areas. MAN. I wish I were 6 or 9!!!! LOL!!!!

Here is a shot from deck 4 off the side where we were docked...



This is the "detective agency" station. There is the interactive mystery game you can play on board. Like a scavenger hunt basically, for clues. They go with the interactive paintings/art they have in each stairwell... some are associated with the game but I don't think all are... we will do this in June, but I saw lots of families participating... It reminds me of KP missions in Epcot, without the slushie... LOL!!!! I didn't explore too much, but I did grab one of the info programs that they have at the detective desk, here is a few photos of that...





The game looks like great fun... here is the "desk"



So of the details I saw around the 4th floor deck, these are just a random few... I took more this evening later, as we were waiting to go into the theater.



Hidden Mickeys!!!!





Now Cabanas was closed from lunch until dinner time, but during the day, if you wanted to use the Aft elevators, you essentially went into Cabanas to do so. Even thought the restuarant was closed. So it was a little strange but we got over it. Here are some of the pictures from the Nemo theme...





Not sure when, I think as we were leaving to go explore that afternoon... but this is one of the LONG LONG hallways!!! HA!



Knowing that dinner was a few hours still, we decided to grab a slice of pizza, and then head to the Meridian bar for a cocktail and some time to read.

The pizza at Luigi's was decent, it was good, I had a slice of veggie, DH something I can’t remember, but there were several choices.

We walked back up top, and I took DH to the area I had been at earlier in the morning, the forward deck area. Isn't the glow pretty at this time of day?!






Back at Meridian... SO nice that bar! Great atmosphere.



Here is that painting of Gustau’s kitchen that I was telling you about! It is really neat.



We sat outside on the deck area of the Meridian Bar for about an hour. Then we went back to our room to change, in anticipation of our 7pm show time. Everything was a little blury for me, in terms of time, because I know that the shops were still closed, and the 5pm show was already in performance.
At some point I remember us going to the Outlook bar, waiting for the show to start at 7… It was "Villians" tonight!!!

These photos and more coming in the next post!!! TTFN!!!

The Detective Agency game looks like fun! I hope Jared and I have time to do that. There is so much that I want to see and do, I'm not sure 4 nights is going to be long enough....

That is sort of odd that you have to walk through the restaurant to get to the elevators, I bet it can be quite a madhouse in there during dining hours.

I'm really enjoying your trip report and this is hilarious. Good to know I'm not the only one drinking slushies during the Kim Possible missions! Our boys love the Kim Possible missions, so I think they will really enjoy the detective game!

Great updates. The pictures of the ship continue to amaze me. It sounds like you had such a relaxing day in Nassau. The food all sounds lovely. The Meridian bar looks great.

Looking forward to more. Love the porthole in your room. Cool!

Yes! You have to pay extra for it -- I don't know why I did -- I didn't really need it!!! They keep swapping you "refills" until you stop ordering them! Then it is yours!

It was odd, we agreed. The restaurant was empty but it was weird to be going straight through... Well the time it was busy was during lunch and breakfast, but because it is a buffet, I never felt like it was over crowded...

I bet you and Jared can find time! You won't want to be out in the sun the whole time! 3 nights was tough, but we thought 4 was great, and think 5 will be great too. I had time to do what I wanted to do.

Villains and Enchantment

Shortly before the show started, we walked around the midship area on deck 3 – this is where the entrance to the WD Theater is, and all the shops, etc. Here are some of the photos I took while we were waiting to go see the show… The stores were not opened yet, they were open in full force, within the hour. I think they stay closed while you are at port (something about not being able to stay open) and then the were only open during the evenings on all days but the sea day. They were open all day on that day.



















So next was the show! “Villains Tonight”



The show was MC’d by Hades and his helpers “pain” and “panic” here is one them…



It was a cute show! They again just did different scenes and stories from Disney "villains" -- it was fun to see, we particularly liked Cruella!

After the show we left the theater and walked straight into the rest of the crowd standing in the foyer of the theater. These were people finished with dinner, and also those leaving the theater so it was a bit of a mad house. The shops were now open, and there were tons of people swarming them… Since we had thirty minutes before dinner, DH and I browsed the shops together… I eyed what I wanted to buy later, and then we headed to dinner. Dinner this evening was in the Enchanted Garden. I took some photos for you.















Dinner at the Enchanted Garden was “okay” – rather it felt a little rushed, it was busy, and the food was not entirely memorable. The appetizers and salads we had were good. My entrée was not that great, but they gave me a replacement, which was much better. DH enjoyed his selections far more than I. We started a bottle of wine, then saved the rest to be sent to Palo’s the next night. What was neat about the Enchanted Garden of course was the atmosphere. It was pretty. We sat in a booth, just the two of us, and I swear, a few times we were laughing and half expecting them to turn into part of an attraction! We felt like we should be spinning through some ride, because they reminded us of the people movers!!!! Just like a ride vehicle! NOW I am thinking the next time we go to this restaurant I will order something else, and I am sure the kids will love the changing light -- it is really subtle, and fun to see.

After dinner, we walked out on deck again, then headed back to our cabin. CASTAWAY CAY was coming up!!! We had a cute pig left on our bed. SO adorable!



Here was our door, by the way. We are not DVC owners, but this magnet was on our door -- I am guessing it was left from the previous cruise. We just left it there again after our Cruise.



SO off the sleep we went, and more coming up soon. NEXT STOP, Castaway Cay!!!!

OK, the Meridian Bar and the detective agency game are on my list if I ever do a cruise.

I'm surprised that the stores aren't open in the afternoon. Is that because most people are out on excursions when the ship is docked?

I thought the same thing about the booths in the restaurant looking like ride vehicles!

Castaway Cay... can't wait to hear about it!!!
