Isn't it just more fun to be surprised?

I totally understand the "to excited to sleep " thing too. I always get that way.. Really injoying the TR so far. I can't wait to see more pics of the ship. I'm not a boat person at all but the Disney dhips look really fun!

Joining in for the fun! We are in the process of planning a cruise for next year so your report looks like fun.

Too bad that your husband couldn't go with you but great that you could go on the cruise with your mom. Love the post about all of you looking at the Dream early in the morning. I am sure you were excited!

I see you live in northern Ohio. I live in southern Ohio near Cincy.

Can't wait to read more.

I would absolutely be too excited to sleep too! Who could sleep with all that going on outside! Very exciting! I felt excited for you just reading about it.

You mentioning the birth certificates made me want to know how all that went??? Did you have any trouble with using your birth certificates? Everything I have read on the DCL web site says that you have to have passports, but I know you said you had been told otherwise. We are planning on cruising in October so I really want to know the answer to this.

Thanks for reading. I think if you liek Disney, you would have a great time on a ship. This is like not other "boat". It was a cruise yes, but it had a lot of Disney magic with it too.

Hello fellow Ohioan! Thanks for reading along. I hope I can give you some input on how things go/went for us.

It depends on the cruise. Some cruises you have to have a passport no matter what because of the isalnds you visit. But a lot of Carribean cruises you can get away with a birth certificate as long as the cruise starts and ends at the same port. We talked it over and Skip said lets just do birth certificates. But I am a worrier and then convinced him to get passports. Claire and I went on a Friday afternoon to get our pictures taken a AAA for the passports. WE had planned to go that Sat to get our passports then, as the post office was having a passport party or something like that. Skip was just going to have his picture taken there, but it was a about twice as much, so thats why Claire and I went to AAA. So Sat. morning comes and thats the day his brother broke his leg. So we didn't go. And then Skip said forget it. I still worried, but I knew with all my research I should be fine, but you still have that thought in the back of your head.
We had absoluetly NO problems whats so ever. They barely even looked at them. And when we disembarked we basically flashed them in front of the guy and he waved us through.
Do be sure to keep them with you when you get off the ship at Nassau though....just in case something happens. I was told you would need them to get back on the ship, but we never had to show them. But you never know.

It still is advisable to get them. The law may change at any point and time. And the price is going up very soon (if it hasn't already). I am thinking I read it was going up in either April or May of this year.

I don't think I would have been able to sleep either. You were so close to her. What a great view

Mom woke up around 7:15 and took her shower. After she got ready, it was Dad’s turn. Not long after, Little Miss Claire woke up. She had a gift waiting for her from Donald.







She received a new Tinkerbelle bathing suite.



We got Claire dressed and ready for the big day.
The forecast was for rain. It didn’t look to bad outside at this point and time.



The weathermen couldn’t seem to decide if it was going to be storms sweeping through quickly, all day rain, or all day storms. I swear they would change their minds every few minutes.
We then headed down for breakfast. My 2nd breakfast of the day, but it had been a couple hours since I ate the 1st one.









There was a family sitting next to us, a couple with a baby. This baby was so stinking cute. She had this tongue thing going when they fed her and it was hilarious. They were going on the cruise as well and we actually ran into to them several times on the ship.

With our bellies full, we walked back towards the room. Of course I took a few pictures on the way.





Back at the room we tagged our luggage that would be going on the ship. Claire and I hauled them out to the van.





We called Skip and he told us that the news station he was watching was saying that Sea World may be closing due to storms.
We went back to the room for another load of luggage and Dad said the local news were saying that if you had a Disney Day planned to wait till the storms past, as they were going to bad.

Claire and I finished loading the van and took one more walk around the hotel.





It was a little before 10 AM now. We saw many people loading their vehicles as well. Many were dressed in Disney attire. Claire and I decided we should head over to the port now, a little earlier than we had planned. We went back up to the room and gathered up Mom and Dad and were on our merry way to the Terminal!
