I just LOVE the story of Claire waking you up in the very early morning! So cute! Thanks for letting us share your family life! ...... and your vacations too!
Easter Bunny got lettuce because we were out of carrots.
He also got it on sale. That bag was $220 at the park before tax, Easter Bunny got it online at the Disney Store on sale for $143, including tax and shipped!

We went out for brunch with my family.
Skip had to leave early to go back and work,so he handed me some money to py. He is being a big dork here and looking like he means business with this money. Of course we all laughed at him.



A bad shot of Paige.



Some of you may remember complaining a bit about my son. He has no respect for anyone anymore. He is on his "own" time. He arrived 1 hour late to brunch, he ate with not much talk, was a little rude when he did talk and then went home. He said he didn't feel well. But no one even believes a word he says much anymore. Oh and of course it wasn't his fault he was late...though I'm not sure who's fault it was. We exchanged Easter gifts at my sisters house, so I never even gave Michael his. He's probably panicing that I forgot to give him something...and he will ask for it. Sometimes I wonder how he could even be related to me....then I remember who his dad is. They are identicle.

Claire and her cousin. We did not buy the same dress on purpose. We found out after we both bought the dresses that we had matching outfits.





Back at my sisters house

The 3 twinkies





Paige and her boyfriend Jordan

I never tasted it. I think Claire liked it. She was not eating a whole lot that meal, but I know she had at least a couple of bites of the soup. Once we mentioned going to our room she kind of decided to stop eating.

Before we left Cabanas, I asked a server what was going to happen with the Sail Away party if the rain continued. He said he had no clue. He had been working with Disney since Sept and had never had a rainy departure day. I knew that something would be done, and I was sure at some point and time we would be told.

We went out of the back of Cabanas and down a few flights of stairs to Deck 7 where our room 7666 was. Just right around the corner too. We were surprised to find one of my bags was already waiting for us outside the door.
Mom got a little worried that her bag wasnít there yet. I assured her that this was early and it could still take a few hours for it to arrive.
The room was gorgeous for a cruise ship room. Everything was new and looked fresh. I was amazed at how roomy it was as well. Not a big room in hotel standards, but in cruise hip standards this room was a very nice size. And the verandah looked awesome!

I quickly pulled out the camera and shot a few pictures.



This is looking at the door.



The door on the left is for an adjoining room. Obviously we didnít use that door at all.



The couch.



View of the port from our veranda.











The lamp



Guess who decided to pop in front of me when I try to shoot the bathroom!
This is one of the split bathrooms. This side has a sink and a shower/tub combo. I was impressed with how big the tub actually was.

















I went to take pictures of the other bathroom, the one with the toilet, but the light didnít work. I called about it and they said they would send someone to fix it. It was working when we came back later. I donít think I ever did end up taking pictures of that side thenÖbut maybe Iíll find them later if I did.





Obviously by the time on the clock, I didnít take this picture when we were in the room at that time. I mustíve taken it the next day. It was on the waterproof camera. I have no clue why I used it for this, except maybe testing it out.

The room looks very nice, but like you said small compared to most hotel rooms. Was the space in the room ever a problem?

Love the pillow and comforter on the bed and your view is VERY nice. I can't wait to see if you ever saw any marine life from your veranda.

I can't wait to see what you did that evening.

Your tub was different than the one we had. Ours was circular with a shelf area and a rain shower head above. I didn't get a great shot of the tub itself but I did get the ceiling with the shower heads.

At times if we had the suitcases pulled out it was a little more cramped. Mostly if I started to pull mine out, then Mom would pull hers too and that made it harder. I could'ved done without the coffee table thing too.

I saw that some rooms had a round tub as well. I can't remember if I read why some did or not though. They looked kind of cool though.

I love the pictures. i like the room. The Easter Bunny must have found a sale on purses. There was a purse basket for my Mom at our house...not a Mickey one though. The picture I really liked had the Dooney and Burke in it!!

Yeah room pics! It does look lovely. When I looked at the website for the Dream, I saw that one room category had a round tub and one have the rectangle, and some didn't have a tub. I guess it depended on your category.

I loved the pics of the girls in the matching dresses. They're very pretty and easy to see why you both picked the same.

I can't wait to read about how your day went. I loved the detailed itinerary. It looks better than the one RC gave us in Alaska. Too bad it rained on departure day. It would probably do the same for me. When we were in Alaska, it was cold and rainy alot. At least you didn't have cold.

The food looks good. I don't eat shellfish, so I'd skip that and probably go for fishy fish and/or something vegetarian. That's what I usually pick. Its rare, but sometimes I'll get the filet mignon if its a special occasion... maybe once ever couple years!! I'm not willing to waste my daily points on meat when I can save them for dessert!
