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!
I think the only ones that are just showers are the handicapp assecible ones. Thats one thing people like about DCL. They actually ahve tubs. It is nice when you have kids.

The ship pictures are so interesting. The room is drop dead gorgeous! The last time that I cruised the rooms were nice, but nothing like that!

Kudos on having such a wonderful EB! Our Easter is pretty quiet, no more baskets or eggs. No little ones here to celebrate with.

The girls looked so sweet in the matching dresses. I can see why you bought Claire's.

I was looking at those purses today at Disney online. I'm having a hard time deciding on a favorite.

The room is gorgeous! I could SO see myself there. Man, next time your husband can't make it, give me a buzz, OK?????

And the girls' Easter dresses are adorable! How funny they were the same!

wow you put up updates quick, had to catch up

I love the room, all the special touches that Disney adds, no wonder we are so addicted to their vacations!!!

I love the port and the model of the ship. I haven't seen a picture of the aqua duck yet, can't wait to hear about that!!!

The rooms were really nice. It was twice the size of the one we stayed on last time on NCL!

I will! It was funny how we got the same dresses. Claire picked it out herself and the next day we got an Easter card from my sister with the girls wearing those dresses.

I'm trying to get pictures edited fast as I can get a deal if I order 365 tomorrow with snapfish, but I'm not going as fast as I had hopped. I basically need to edit 300 more. LOL! But I can also go to my photopass CD and order some from that too.

Jen - back at work catching up on your trip report! Everything looks amazing, I can't wait until DH and I can go on a cruise - I'm thinking of asking my sister (my OLDER sister) and her DH if they want to go with us when we go, I think she is a DVC member and she might like going too, especially if we go during November (she doesn't like hot weather). Keep the trip report coming - I need something to break up my work day

Your room on the ship is amazing! It's bigger than I imagined it would look.

LOL on Claire's "Mom your to slow" pic. Kadence would have been yelling at me too.

Love Claire's Easter dress! The flowers so make it.

Yes, there were several times Mom and Claire left me in the dust because I was lagging behind snapping pictures.

Your room is just as impressive as the rest of the ship! I love all of the Mickey details. So pretty!

We unpacked a bit from what we had in the room with us so far. Claire and I decorated our door with magnets. I put out our Fish Extender.



Sadly I don’t think I ever took a picture of our door with the magnets or fish extender.
I took a look at the Navigator and saw that the Port shopping talk was going to start soon. I told Mom that we were going to go see it and she wanted to come as well. We looked on our ship map to see where The Buena Vista Theatre was, and made our way there.

I took a few shots as we passed the Atrium again.







And another shot. I just couldn’t stop taking pictures of it.



On our way again!

I have no clue where this was….or what it was, but it looks pretty…even though I took it crooked.



We entered The Buena Vista Theatre from the top level on deck 5. But they had all the handouts at the deck 4 entrance, so I went back and picked those flyers up.









Evidently I have bad balance or I am lopsided…here’s another crooked picture.



Soon Whitney started. She talked a lot about where to find jewelry. We oohed and ahhed. She would through out freebies, but honestly she mostly handed them to the same people in the front row. I was getting a little sleepy. Evidently Whitney has a soothing voice. I was actually starting to nod off and would catch myself. I didn’t think I could last much longer. I moved around in my seat and tried to stay awake, but it just wasn’t going to happen. I looked at Claire and she looked bored to tears…my escape! LOL! I asked her if she had to go potty and she said yes, very badly. I told Mom we were leaving and I was taking Claire potty and we would meet up with her later.

Once I got moving I felt back to normal. In search of a bathroom we came across Chip and Dale roaming around. This was not an actual meet and greet and it was hard to get a picture with them, as they just kept moving along. I actually didn’t like this. So many people would crowd the characters and try for a picture (who wouldn’t?) and it made it a little less magical to me.

Some kids were able to snag an autograph so Claire got her book out, but they never did sign hers.



I was able to take a very quick shot of Claire with Dale though. It was hard though as people were crowding and I just lifted the camera and snapped.



We then asked a nearby CM where the nearest bathroom was. He directed us and off we went. Now this may sound funny…but WOW. The bathrooms are so cool on the ship!







We headed out and decided to work our way back to the room.

It was nice. I swear I walked around with my mouth wide open most of the time.
