I hope they have that show this summer on the Dream! It looks like a fun one!


It's getting close to Christmas, are you ready?

What a fun show! I loved looking at all the sets and costumes!

What a great idea to have wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies and milk at bedtime -- storing that idea away for future reference.

The show looks great. I've heard that the shows are quite the productions on the cruise. Another thing I will look forward to if I ever take the plunge and book one. And the daily cheese plate delivery... that might sell me on a cruise right there.

A Disney show, wine, and cheese.

Formal Night Fun!

After the show, I can’t remember too well what we did, but I know we had to get organized for “formal night”. So I think at this point we must have headed back to the room, where I got the kids ready, and then DH took them to go see Grandma and Grandpa while I finished pulling myself together! I know we ordered a cheese plate, though, and had that in the room while we got ready, along with our prosecco! I had a champagne flute in one hand and the Hair Dryer wand in the other!!! LOL! If you are familiar with the Wonder and the Magic, you'll know what I mean!!!

Regarding wine/sparkling wine, etc. We had our room attendance get a big bucket of ice and had a bottle on ice the entire cruise, b/c the fridge was really a cooler and not very cold! So if you bring white wine or something like that on the Magic, be sure to get an ice bucket. Our room attendant changed it regularly for us…

So our formal night dinner was in Lumiere’s. I was excited to eat in this restaurant, and it did not disappoint. I like it better than Triton’s but the Royal Palace is definitely my favorite! As we were walking towards dinner we got caught in the Captain’s reception, THANK YOU very much… FREE before dinner cocktails, don’t mind if I do!!! And I did!!!! LOL!!!!

The menu that evening was a special menu, it was themed, and I remember having a divine meal!!! Since we had the wine package, we had a bottle of wine with dinner. The photographer came around, and while he took a great photo of us, the photographer missed one detail, he had positioned my older son behind the chair, and based on how he was standing and the way it was taken, it looked like his head was on the back of the chair! Like a ghost in the Haunted Mansion! The talking head busts? Yep, so that was not one I was going to buy!!! LOL!! Here are some candids from the evening, though!

My MIL took this photo of us just as we were going into dinner, it is on the stairs... she took a couple, DS6 was not looking, but this is the one where at least THREE of us were!!!



At the table... DS9 and my DFIL were playing cribbage, a pocket sized game that came in one of our FUN FE gifts!!



DS6 and daddy checking out the menu games... love that they had these each night! And each one was different!





Loved this little detail... each night! That and Mickey shaped ketchup...



You can see how festive the restaurant was, the whole ship, really, with all the poinsettias!



The Chandeliers had Belle's rose... Similar to the glass slippers at the Royal Palace!



Of course we had several amazing dessert choices nightly, and even on the kid's menu they had variety... but the dessert my DH6 had EVERY night? You guessed it. A mickey bar. COMPLETE with sprinkles and chocolate syrup...




After dinner, the lines to take pictures were way too long, and before dinner, of course we didn’t have time, so instead I just went with the plan that on “semi-formal” night I could get some holiday photos, and for now, we decided it was time to get to the theater to see Villans!!

Except WE (DH and I) were NOT going to see Villans! WE were going to go lounge it, while my DMIL and DFIL took the boys to see the show. Since we had seen it now four times, it just wasn’t high on our priority, and with us being all dressed up and no where to go, it made sense to go to BEAT Street!

It was funny though, we backtracked to Guest Services, b/c I wanted a copy of the Navigator, and when we turned the corner we were met with a CM and a tray of drinks. He offered us a round, and, well, who was I to not accept his generosity!!! LOL!! Here are the photos I could take on the way to the Sessions lounge…











We hung out here, Sessions, but of course I was uncomfortable taking pictures b/c it was so dark! We had a nice round of martinis – I had some raspberry concoction, and DH a sidecar. I love sugared rims! So we enjoyed the mood and some jazz piano player, it was very empty, I think it was still too early, and everyone was either at the show or at dinner, so that made a big difference. I didn’t take many pictures when we were in this area, simply because it was SOOO dark, that the flash would be a major distraction… We then met my inlaws in their cabin to pick up the boys. When we got back to our cabin, here was our towel art, a scorpion I thought at first, but actually, I think it was supposed to be a lobster!!!






With some face washing and teeth brushing we were finally off to slumber land, and our NEXT day at sea!!!!

Stay TUNED!!!!

Oh you know I wonder if they will??!!! I think it is a feature show for the Magic, like the Wonder has Golden Mickey's... Both the Wonder and the Magic have the Disney Dreams show, and the Dream has Believe, so I am not sure... I think b/c those boats do the longer cruises... not certain. Basically the Dream takes Villains, Golden Mickey's from the other ships... I know they are cooking up some neat originals for the Fantasy!!!

Christmas! UGH! Crazy!! Do you know we had an offer to go to Boardwalk for $850.00? One bedroom... 6 nights. Christmas eve to the 30th... We just couldn't get our head around it so quick like that... We had already made our summer and next CHRISTMAS plan as it is. Never mind we'll be at AKL for a night before our cruise! I have an AP and ONE day. What kind of trouble can I get into!! LOL!!!

All cookies BAKED! Decorated!!! (well most). Gifts are being wrapped, house all decorated the past few weeks have been very cheery at our house, I LOVE Christmas time!!! I am so excited for you and your grand gathering!!!
Will be memorable I am certain!!!

And LOST at Sea... well not quite, but you get the idea!

So our second Sea day began pretty much the same as the first. gym, breakfast, pool time, matinee, lunch, pool-time…
Ah, yes. The life of leisure on a cruise ship… what to do what to do… LOL!!! After lunch, the boys headed to the kids club to try their hand at Remy’s “everyone can cook” class, and the making of GLOP.
We? Well after showers, we headed to Animator’s Palate… not for dinner, but for our scheduled Tequila tasting session… and boy was that fun…

Here are the boys vogue-ing in the hallway… on the way to the kids club!




These I took from across the balcony area on the 5th level… midship. The Oceaneer’s Lab is on one side, the Club on the other. For the Dream, and the Fantasy, they have them side by side so the kids can go between as the mood strikes. Which was still possible for them to do on the Magic, but they had to be escorted over there by CM! LOL! Which was funny to see.






So boys delivered, we were off!



Once we got to the restaurant, here is what was waiting for us…





I am not a big tequila fan. Mostly, I like them mixed in margaritas, but shots, no, not my think… at least not since college!!! LOL! So we went through this hour long session, tasted several, tried a mango margarita (as you can see) and finished with the blue Caracao Margarita… Which you can see here… the aftermath.



But probably the MOST fun was watching the CM bartender pour margaritas live into the mouths of passengers… or paying participants!
And my DFIL was one of them!!!

He had signed up for three different tastings, if that tells you something, so he got to know this bartender REALLY well!!! LOL! She was a hoot.
Here are the blackmail shots…













Needless to say that would never had been me… She put that in my mouth and it would have been OVER. OVER!!!! And there were three people she did this with!!! ACK!!!!

I decided that I like my top shelf margarita just fine, thank you very much! And I like that mixed on ice with salt on the GLASS rim.

So we left the tasting with a blue margarita in hand, and we went out to stroll on deck a little, before collecting the kids for dinner. We all went back to the cabin, got organized and headed back to Animator’s for Dinner!

COMING UP NEXT!!!!!!!!!!

So we left the tasting with a bluecaracao margarita in hand, and we went out to stroll on deck a little, before collecting the kids for dinner. I am sure the sway of the boat was due to the water ... cough, cough...

We all went back to the cabin, got organized and headed back to Animator’s for Dinner!

Now the boys had only been to Animator’s on the Dream. The original concept restaurant was very different. All black and white which slowly turns into a "palate" of color...

I took lots of cameos here. Not perfect posed photos, but trying to keep up with all the movement was tough!!!! So as we were seated I first noticed the cute menus... from my DMIL ordering...



Now, this menu started a silly little series of photos with my DH... Basically the picture "changes" if you move the direction of the menu... I wanted to get that image change so I asked for DH to help... he was mildly amused... And I was laughing, so a few got a little blurry as a result







OBVIOUSLY this was not very Disney-friendly of him, such hand gestures with Lady and the Tramp I mean really!!!!



Even Animator's had christmas decorations!!! Too cute!



These are all just random shots, here and there, fun pics through the dinner... I liked being able to take pictures of the boys with their grandparents!















These photos all show the restaurant as it starts to evolve in colors...

Some images start in black and white then turn color...

















CONTINUED in the NEXT POST!!!! BONUS!!!! FOUR ENTRIES TODAY!!!!

Another great evening, and Animator's continues!!!

Dinner CONTINUES!!!!

Now the real fun of the evening came at the end, before the fun light show, yes, but the show of my Disney Boys Do Dessert in WHITE SHIRTS. Sigh.







Of course he was not in my reach so I was having heart palpitations about the idea of that chocolate ending up all over his WHITE shirt… Did I mention to my left, was DH9 who decided on the CHOCOLATE pudding/mouse for dessert??!!

I must have looked like this crazed woman…



Well, at least in the dark I cannot see the demise... but here is when the restaurant got dark for the show…

The boys were busy watching the screen change, and listening to the "story" in the show... They play Colors of the Wind, which is ONE OF MY FAVORITE DISNEY SONGS!!!







It happens very fast, from THIS:



To THIS!









If you squint, you can make out Mickey, Sorcerer Mickey, making his way through the restaurant! He actually entered right next to our table, waved, and then was OFF! I love these characters popping up all over the place! On the ship even more so then ever at Disney parks... with everyone contained in the same place, it just happens EVERYWHERE!!!

So another great meal and company and fun behind us, we headed out of the restaurant... We took some pictures on the way out... here they are... NOTICE the shirts made it through unscathed... thank goodness, b/c they had to wear them again!!!!

Here they are demonstrating the HERCULEAN effort keeping their shirt white took....









After dinner … well those photos are not YET loaded to Photobucket! But I hope these few updates will keep you entertained for now!!!

Hope everyone is having a great time getting ready for the madness and the onslaught of the final week before Christmas countdown!!! I for one, AM already missing Disney Holiday spirit, just looking at some of these photos, but I have my Disney Tree all decked out, and I have spent the past weekend wrapping presents on the floor sitting next to it and admiring its festive Disney-ness!

I too am a fan of tequila in margaritas and such but don't know if I could stomach it alone. I mean I have....as you mentioned....in college Actually my friend brought me some from Mexico and I remember seeing a bottle of it in the ditch....I did drink some of that..you know just to be nice

Looks like you are having a fabulous time...have we gone to port yet? Or are we just wandering around with our free drinks?

EXACTLY! I was all over it : "Punch? Don't mind if I do!!!!" So come on now, you know me Tracy, who am I to say no to a complimentary drink!!!" Yeah, we "sipped" these tequilas. I did one shot as she described, with the salt lick/lime. AND that was IT. The other two, they were the higher grade, I guess, those, I sipped a little, and then when we got to the blue Caracao margarita, I dumped the lot in. And of course DH was like "DID YOU SERIOUSLY JUST PUT GOOD TEQUILA IN A MIXED DRINK??!!" And my response was "YEP".

We have been having a GREAT time so far on the cruise... except my DMIL. She unfortunately got sea sick the first night and was ill most of the first day and some of the second day at sea. Well, she was not her usual self the second day, still sort of moving slow... she missed brunch on the first day, and the second day she was off and on. She starts to feel and look a lot better! LOL! I realize her pictures were not the most flattering But she was fine in the Med, when we were there in the spring, so I think she thought the water would be the same... Anyhow, we got to our FIRST stop, St. Marteen, the next day, I have photos of LAND. It was nice to go explore! Coming up in the next set of updates !!!

Great! Oh, well, you will have an amazing time I am certain. Look at Dream reports b/c the ship has more in common in terms of the actual ship layout, etc. However for the ports and days at sea, I have a few good ideas for you! You'll have a great time! I think DH and I have decided that with kids, we will stick to the 7 night or 5 night cruises from here on out. They really had a great time, and so did we.

Oh I was thanking them, trust me!!! Yes, they managed to stay clean so they could wear them a few days later. I think I may have cleaned a quick spot here or there (ala shout laundry wipes!!! ) but they were fine for ties a few days later.

I would encourage you to do one on your sea day if you get a chance, you'll have a few to choose from and a few days to get signed up. It was great fun. I know in February we will do a few on the Dream as well.

Happy Holidays to you too! I hope to upload the rest of my photos tomorrow!
