Hey, you snuck in here. The hot chocolate is to the left and the line to the AquaDuck starts here. I'll get you added the the Roll Call and the biggest tip I can tell you is to read as much as you can on the boards here and at WDWInfo. You also might try and pick up a copy of the Passporters Disney Cruising book too, but please, please, if you have any questions, ask here. This is how we learn as well and all questions are welcome here.

Dream Must Do's

This weeks Dream must do:
8. Bring a pillowcase from home in a gallon zippy bag and give that and some fabric markers to guest services when you board. They will have the characters sign it and return it to your room on the last night. Be sure to leave some “thank you” candies in the bag too.
Pillowcase you say? Yes, you can bring a blank pillowcase on board the ship and if you drop it off at Guest Services on the first day it will be returned to your kiddo on the last night. We ordered ours through ebay and had our DD name embroided on it along with Rapunzel. Place your pillowcase in a zippy bag, be sure to note your cabin number on it, include fabric markers (enough for all the characters to sign, they will return them too), and the most important item I learned form the boards….include some candies. Let’s just say, it doesn’t hurt and with what we received in return, it is the least you can do. You will be given a choice between Princesses or the Fab 8. For our DD we chose both, to date, my DD still sleeps on this and it still looks prestine.

Glad to have you along, pull up a deck chair, the Java Juice is to the left and the line to the AquaDuck starts here.

I'll get you added to the RC and the FE. Any questions you may have feel free to ask away here.

Dream Must Do's

Okay, how about a few Dream Must Do's for this week, middle of the month, middle of the week... just a few tips for sailing on the Dream:

10. Get up early and just take in the ship in all its splendor, walk around and take pictures without all the people around.
11. Never get off the boat, NEVER! In Nassau anyway. (Well, you can especially if you have a cool excursion planed, but enjoy the ship, there is so much to do on board, it’s worth it and less crowded).
12. Sit outside at Cabanas in the back, if you cannot get a seat outside, at least get a seat near the window.
13. At Cabanas for breakfast, go to the CM near the waffle maker and ask who is taking orders for omelets, they will then take your order and tell you to come back in 5 minutes and they will custom make an omelet for you.

(More to follow)
