Wonderful meet with Captain Jack.
I did find some of the CM's with characters a little rude. They would say they are just walking around and not taking pictures and hten a few minutes later the character stops and gets pictures with another family. That kind of irked me.

The rest of our Pirate antics!

So as I mentioned in the last post, there was plenty of fun to be had this evening, but I really can't recall the order of things!! So I am going to just post the rest of our photos, and share a few things about them!


Here are some pictures from the Pirate game show. This was great fun, and DH9 was selected to participate with the swab the deck game... The blurry photo of him running aroung the ship deck with the broom and bucket is from that game. They had several games, and two "teams" with two CMs that were great fun, and humorous, which totally made the show lively and silly!!!

We enjoyed being in the D Lounge, watching this show.











After the show we went up on deck, and we decided to go play Goofy's golf, and check out the Arr-cade (since I bought the boys the arcarde cards for their trip bags. We then found some seats on the main deck, to watch the show with fireworks, etc., I didn't expect the pirate show entertainment with Jack Sparrow to follow the fireworks, but it did, and it was truly neat! I didn't get a photo, but he appears on the top of the smoke stack, and then propels down to the stage!

Most of my photos are pretty uninspiring. I think my camera has an action speed setting, I just have to remember where it is, but for the show, things were happening way to fast for me to get a decent shot. The fireworks, while lovely, were not like the big shows in WDW (obviously!) so there are not that many big arrangements of fireworks... and so I couldn't see the benefit of trying for too many photos. Mainly I just had fun watching the boys who were completely captivated!

































They had a great buffet at Cabanas that night, lots of fun eats, so we had some snacks, and then decided it was plenty late, and that in order to enjoy our final day at Castaway Cay, we were going to head to sleep...

And so of course after a fun filled evening, we ended here... with our dubloon eating frog... or is it a crab ... crab, frog, crab, frog, crab, frog....



More coming this weekend, our FINAL day at Castaway Cay (YAY!!!) our FINAL night on the ship (BOOOO!!!), and a great time at Vero Beach coming up!!!!

I missed your feburary ptr & tr but I will catch up on your february adventures and read all the fun for your october trip
Oh SO nice to hear from you again! Well I understand how the DIS has to take a back seat! We all do at times!!! How exciting to have a land and sea in the works!

Your pictures of Nemo's Reef hit home, because I have spent the afternoon working on my classroom stuff, including some coral. Mind you, it's made out of construction paper, but I just needed something for effect. My whole kitchen is full of Nemo stuff right now. I'll get it loaded up tonight, and tomorrow it will find its place in my classroom for this school year.
Oh yes, I know you and Anita both have that Under the Sea theme this year! TOOO cute!!!! I bet your kids were excited to walk into your room seeing all that magic!

Oh tucking is a battle I never win!!!! The drinks went down easy, that is for sure!!!

I can't wait to see your pirate night. I have a feeling Alaska won't be anything like it (so am not doing a whole lot for it lol) but it will still be fun.

Hope you are enjoying your trip, loving the FB updates on Santa Fe! We had a magical night at the La Fonda once
It was a great deal!!! FOR sure!! WE didn't do too much other than the boys really dressing up. I had patterns and fabric, but the timing didn't work for me to make costumes for us. It was so hot, too, I wasn't as motivated as I will be for the fall... I will have more time for Thanksgiving!

Santa Fe was magical, but it has that quality to it!! We had drinks at La Fonda while we were on the plaza one afternoon!

We took the Auto Train down once and we liked it! Granted my oldest was 9 months at the time. I know both my boys would like it now..

We are going on the fantasy next summer for 7 days and we can't wait!! I am glad to hear that your boys liked the kids club as I hope to have some adult time as well!

I want to try palos as well and it looks like it will be worth it!

Can I ask where you got the door magnets? I have seen them posted before and would love to have some made!

Welcome home from you long vacation!!
Hi! So glad you are here to read along! You will have plenty of opportunities for a little adult time, that was a nice perk for sure! Palos is TOTALLY worth it! How fun you are going to be on the Fantasy! We are too, in November of 2012. Your kids will definitely enjoy the kids club! We are south of Baltimore, in Montgomery County

The Magnets you can get on the DISigner thread, you can find their thread towards the end of the Discussion forum thread list...lots to choose from!

Oh, I think boys in general are into roughhousing at any age. Connor had a friend spend the night last night and this morning they seemed a little wired. I can't tell you how many times I said, "Okay, quit hitting each other."
I guess they are wired for that sort of play, I agree! It is funny but I don't think they can resist it! It was a great day, lots of fun just hanging out, Aqua Duck, DOTD, movies, plenty of sunshine to go around.

UGH to the inconsiderate people in front of you. I get it that they wanted to have their picture made, but when there are others waiting. Come on!!!
YES, that pirate costume was a HUGE hit for Grif! He really enjoyed wearing it! It is going to get a second life in November again! Well, actually a THIRD life, b/c they wore these costumes on the ship, at the VB character Pirate dinner, and once more on the ship! I bet Griffin will be able to wear it next Nov as well! Or at least Nolyn will!

It was a unfortunate, yes. I know we all like the characters, adults and kids alike, but at somepoint, it just seemed that they were more interested in their own small talk and conversation with the CMs and forgot that there were other guests too...

Well, I was fortunate enough to have two great DIS friends who gave them to me! My guys love dressing up. I would make sure your older son doesn't change his mind... it is great fun! I know my kids both get into it... I think watching POTC cinched the deal! Something about swashbuckle and swordplay! You can find them at the end of Halloween likely on sale, and likely for a good price! SO I would make a plan to get what you need right after Halloween! I will probably do a little more accessory shopping myself. Swords and such are always a good thing in our house!

It was a fun exchange for sure. I am sure it is hard to extract the characters from a crowd, but I also think sometimes the characters kinda do their own thing, like they may just go ahead and take more photos despite what their "handler" advises the crowd!!

ON a different note, I was happy to see your post today

My guess is probably not -- it's all about the outfit, the swagger, and the character.

Thank you. I figured catching up on my favorite TRs would help take my mind off things.

Did you weather Irene okay?

Love the evening of games and fireworks. I bet it was very neat to see Jack propelling down the smokestack!

Oh I know reading boy TRs are a lot of fun! Oh well have a wonderful time in WDW! It is so much fun... your kids are just the right age to really enjoy all of it!! Mine sure do!

I am glad to hear I could help in a small way

Oh we got lots of rain, and wind, but no power outages, lots around us, and several schools still without power, and SCHOOL starts tomorrow! None that we work at or attend, however, so off we go in the morning... I laugh at the fact that some students in the county will be getting another day off school!!!

It was great fun, playing games, eating, drinking, and watching all the revelry!!!
