Hi Lisa,
It would be great to sit together if possible. I'm not sure how to go about that though. I would love to get together and play. Nathan turns 5 in August so he'll still be a young 5. I told my DH about getting together and he thinks it's a great idea as well. One of my main concerns is sitting with people either without small children or not really social people.

Looking forward to the most

I most looking forward to everyone enjoying a vacation together but also apart. We love going on family vacations but sometimes it would be nice to have a little time with adults too. I really hope that my DS will enjoy the kids clubs so the he can get some kid time in as well as us getting some adult time in. This will be our first cruise so it's all exciting for us.

The easiest way to do it would probably be to link your reservations together. They would sit you together and really nothing more. It could be a really great idea and the boys would feel like they were going with a friend!

As for sitting with people you don't know, it is really hard when your children are small to do that because negative energy at a table doesn't go well for children. They feel that. When Disney does try to match people up they do work hard to find children the same age group and same family structure. Single parents with other single parents, grandparents with grandparents etc.

I love the vacation time together as well. Our cruise experiences have been so great and we have so many special memories. My favorite memories so far have been around the dinner hours as we talked about what we had done and the boys tried things the never had. The other is our milk and cookies time each evening. We have pictures of this and no matter how tired or how full we would order and laugh and talk about the next day.

You two could really do something special with the boys like a letter and picture of them and talking about what they like to do etc. Kind of like meeting a pen pal. A small gift to each other (of same value perhaps even bought for your own child and just exchanged as if from each other) could really seal the deal. If your children feel like they have a friend in the room, they will be so much more likely to enjoy the experience of the kids activities. How sweet would it be to have this little bonding time for them.

That post made me smile. And I was thinking along the same lines as letting them do a penpal thing. I think it would be wonderful!

Castaway Cay Information

http://www.visitcastawaycay.com/

I found this link that has a lot of information about Castaway Cay and I thought you might like to look at it. For those of you with little ones, you might like that they have activities and you can leave your child there for a while if you want a massage or just some time on the adult beach.

You will not be the only person in the dining room taking pictures of food so if you want to do it, do it! We won't stop you. We even have some tips for you as we have done many food porn pictures for reviews at the World.

I have no problem taking pictures, no embarrassment there, I litteraly may eat my camera. Didnt tyler tell you about the time a googled food when I was hungry. I googled food thinking I would sate my hunger and it just made me hungrier. I just figured out that this is what they call food porn. I never knew that until now.

Someone posted a link to a webcam at Port Canaveral. I watched last Sunday as the Dream left the port. I could see my room and it was kind of neat to see it leave.

So after reading all the food porn descriptions and seeing the pictures... I have decided to diet now so I can fit out the door when the cruise is over.




Although, if you can't fit out the door, do you get to continue to cruise free of charge?

Food Porn

I made the mistake of gong over to the food porn threads too. Now I know that I need to go on a major diet. I plan on enjoying myself and want to try all sorts of new foods and of course drinks too. Between the cruise and WDW after I probably going to gain 10 pounds.

Well... we could all lose some weight before... and an additional 10 pounds for cruise food gaining... (unless you are super thin and then you might just want to get to your normal weight...lolol). I could lose that 10 pounds and you probably wouldn't even notice... Summertime is a great time as it is nice outside and so many fresh fruits and veggies available at reasonable costs. We went to the farmers market and got some veggies we haven't ever ate. I'll let you know...

We got yellow zucchini and Pattypan (sp?) squash.
