It was very fun. I hope it works out too. I swear if I didn't have bad luck, I would have no luck at all.

First of all, I hope everything works out with your trip.

The pirate pictures are really good. I like them all. It's too bad Skip wasn't there for those. It would have been cute to have a whole pirate family portrait done. But the mother/daughter pics are very nice too!

So do you get some kind of discount for buying the photo CD early? You mentioned that you went down to prepay for it, so I'm wondering what the reason for that was.

Pirate Minnie!! it!

I also your D&B!!! Very nice of your Mom.

Fireworks are something to photograph aren't they. I too have realized that I will never get any great shots without a tripod. However, I don't know if even a tripod would do much good on the ship since it is moving. Another problem with fireworks is that there are very few opportunities to practice since most people only see them once or so a year.

I think that snake towel animal is one of the best ones I've ever seen! I love the gold coin eyes! Very cool!

Stuff like the Aquaduck episode is a real pain in the rear isn't it? When you have young kids, little things like that can turn into a meltdown moment very quickly. I would have been a little irritated by that myself.

I am so excited to see your CC day!!

Love your D&B wristlet, it's so cute. The pirate pictures of Claire were very well done.

We didn't have any rain here yesterday thank goodness! It's too bad about the trampoline. Friends of ours were told by their insurance company that there homeowners policy would be cancelled if they didn't get rid of the trampoline. Company didn't want the liability.

Great update! Too bad you didn't get to see most of the show during the fireworks... I'm glad you liked the fireworks though. Oh, and I love your Dooney and Bourke wristlet. So cute!

First, I really hope you do get to go on your Aug trip. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Claire makes a very cute pirate, and the Mom & daughter pics are so nice. I can't wait to see your Castaway Cay photos.

No discount, but I wanted to do it before I forgot. And at that point I knew I had enough to make itworht wild. You do have tp have it purchased by a certain time so that they have enough time to get it made befoe you disembark. Claire loved the choclates each night. That was a major hit and she would ask us if we wanted ours too. Of course we did.

Yep. We aren't really supposed to have one. We tried to change the pilicy on our old house several years ago and were told they won't insure with a trampoline.

I love it too, but really I don't use it much. I't so small I can only carry a small wallet and not my phone. But I usually take it in the grocery store and stuff like that. I kind of just keep it in my regular purse.

I hope so too. Basically the sales manager has to send an approval in to let us go. I guess in the past, thre were never any problems, but it sounds like they are doing things differently. I am holding to the thought that I am going. I have everything paid for already!!! I HAVE to go.

Caught up again! Wow! Took quite a while! Your thread sure moves FAST!!!!!!!!!

Okay, first things first:
I SO hope you get to go on the TA trip! We arrive on the 13th and would L-O-V-E to meet you. We'll have a car, so meeting wherever you want will not be a problem.
We can decide on what to do and where to meet when everything is settled.

Now, the Pirates in the Caribbean show looks different from what I remember from the Wonder - guess we will need to check the Navigator to see both parts.

I am not too impressed with the villains show. But we'll have three shows, so I guess we will grow with it!

Sorry about the trampolin - hope sweet little Claire can either use the old one or that she gets a new one soon!

Still dancing with the thought of meeting you in August!

I'm behind a lot too on many threads. Don't feel bad.

I think we can order some replacement parts for the trampoline, but of course the one thing we need is backordered, so I don't know how long that will take to come in...if ever.
You might like the Villains show. Many people do. It just wasn't for me.
It would be exciting to meet up. I am hoping to go to MK that night if it works out that I can get a ticket for one day early. If I have to pay for a full price one,then I'm just gonna do other onsite stuff. I do want to hit DTD that day too. My preliminary plans are to check in, and then go to DTD and have lunch at EOS. Then go back to AS Movies and get my geer for the night at MK. I think I may bring my tripod along and try some night shots....all just thoughts right now. I also thought of going to the campfire sing along....and about 30 other "thoughts!" Once I get my "thoughts" together, I should know more. And you can let me know what your plans for the say are officially too and we can go from there.

I mostly want to go to MK because it is EMH that night till 2 AM. Going early in the afternoon doesn't appeal to me so much because it will most likely be crowded and hot. And being alone will give me some time to do some exploring and picture taking that I can't do with others.

Ok, had some more catching up to do. Now let's see if I can remember everything I was going to say!

I so hope you get to go on your TA trip!! Man, I can't imagine how anxious you are to know for sure!

I love all of Claire's pirate pictures - and the ones with you both in them are just SO precious. I agree with Skip - that one of Claire doing a pirate scowl would make the cutest Cmas card. I can just picture it, maybe in B&W with a cheesy saying (I say that as someone who typically makes a card with a total cheeseball pic of the kids with equally cheeseball saying)

It's probably wrong of me to say this, seeing as how it's 8:30am and I'm responsible for 3 small children right now but man, I could totally go for one of those orange/pineappley drinks. They look too good!

Pirate Minnie's outfit is super cute!!

Sorry to hear Claire's trampoline got hit - that was a heck of a weather week last week, wasn't it?? We didn't get much other than some minor wind and thunderstorms but I know you guys further north sure got it!

Getting all caught up! Royal Palace looks nice. Loved the slippers on the chandelier and the coach bread basket. Those details were great!

Those fireworks look great! I think that would be soo much fun.

Yay for your Dooney and Bourke!!

Sure hope you can get Claire's trampoline fixed. Those things can be dangerous in the wind. My DH always pushes Jeremy's up against the woods when a storm comes through hoping that it would block the wind from blowing it.

Can't wait to see if you rode the aquaduck!

I'm sorry to hear about your trampoline. Has Claire seen it yet? I hope you can do something with it.

Those pictures of you and Claire are so sweet!

Oh no! I hope you get everything with the trip worked out. It sounds like so much fun. Don't you wish school was always like that?

I think River is all better now I sent him back to school today and he had no problems. I was getting very worried about our trip.

I've been reading your trip report and finished last night. I was excited to come back today to check for more!! Please let us know if you get to go on the August trip to Disney. That would be so interesting! My name is Jessica and my husband, DS (2) and DS (4) will be going with my parents on our first Disney cruise in Feb. aboard the Magic. We are so excited and it has been great reading about other people's experiences with DCL to get prepared.
