Mexican Riviera: 09/25/11 - 10/02/11

Alright I'm going to cheat a little. I'm already pulling together a trip report on my blog. It's going to take a little time as it is being pulled together a day at a time. I have just too much info to deal with. I will keep giving you a link across to my blog...sorry hope you don't mind, but there you will find the info as it gets updated. With the weekend coming I'll hopefully get another day or two done tomorrow, but then I doubt I'll get a chance over the weekend as my 4 year old DD has 3 birthday parties!!

As I participated in the FE I did a post just about my gifts. This was my family's first cruise, first Disney cruise and first FE. Somehow I pulled together the FE for us and loved it. Loved meeting everyone and have definitely made friends for life. Here's the first link:

Mexican Riviera: 09/25/11 - 10/2/11 Getting there

I have included information about the day before the cruise too as we live in AZ and drove across. Sorry if it's too much info. I'm a British Expat so the blog is as much for keeping Grandparents informed as for anyone else who feels they would like to read it.

Aww Jennifer thank you. I didn't know if all the pictures were a little excessive or not, but I didn't want to miss anything out. Each of these posts has taken me over an hour hence the reason I'm just putting it all in one place and adding links everywhere else.

I can't believe how much I talk, well write. Plenty of pictures again and it includes the daily navigators too.

Thanks Jennifer. I don't think our blog has ever had as much traffic as it is currently getting.

Reading along - nice blog posts. Love this pics as well. Hoping to do this cruise in January (yes, I have about 14 days to 'finally' decide if it can really be done).

Thanks for referencing the places for a pre-cruise stay. Going to go check out the Doubletree (although I know you didn't stay there).

Glad tobe of help. With family at home won't get time to do a post over the weekend so the next post will be on Monday. If you have any specific questions please don't hesitate to ask, and I will do my best to answer.

Hopefully I am going to find time to get at least 1 more day done today. Sorry each post is taking around 90 minutes. Unfortunately I have husband sick at home so need to drive him to the Dr. Hopefully won't have to take him anywhere else for xrays etc.

Got copies of every navigator so will include all of those. So glad you're enjoying the TR.

Thanks for the update. We're driving over from Phoenix on Friday and will be boarding the Wonder on Sunday, so your report is getting me 'in the mood'?

Did you prefer eating breakfasts and lunches at the buffets or the sit-down restaurants? Perhaps with a young child e buffets are easier? My kiddo is older so I would love sit-down restaurants for all breakfasts which would be a fun treat for me....I may be doing it alone some mornings if sleepy son and husband don't cooperate LOL
