Phew, what an update!

Maybe we will try out a Disney cruise in the next couple of years. Quick question--how was the kid situation? Was the pool area nuts like at many Disney resorts? Where there quiet areas and bar areas for adults only? Not to sound anti-child, but if I'm on vacation with Joyce, I want us to be the ones making a ruckus

It's just me and my husband and we had an awesome time. We felt like kids again. We rode bikes on Castaway Cay, went to a martini tasting and played a trivia game at the bar just to name a few. We didn't have a problem with the kids. Disney has so many programs for the kids that it really was a non issue for us in fact we were going to watch a movie and on the way we passed a group of kids in a single file line and not talking,lol. I guess if Mickey asks you to play the quite game while walking in a single file line kids have no problem listening! We went to the adult section of the pool and it was very peaceful and very nice with the drink of the day . We did go with a couple who had a kid so we did go to the family section of Castaway but it really wasn't a problem. I loved the movies on the deck, pirate night, the theater and the fact that I could have a nice warm bath at the end of the day. It really is well worth the money that you pay. Another great thing is that the characters are everywhere and you don't have to worry about a mother with a cranky kid cutting in front of you so that they can get a picture before you. Hope this helps! Happy sailing

Hey everyone

Remember us?

Sorry we've been away for so long, broken record I know, but things have been a little difficult this past year, what with moving home and basically uprooting ourselves from our normal routine, to say its been hard is an understatement.

I've also been going through a very difficult time of things and whilst I'm not completely there, I am slowly but surely trying. Things like the Dis have been hard to catch up on and quite frankly I've been so exhausted. As soon as I have come home I don't really have much time for anything anymore.

But enough being a debby downer. I really want to finish this TR and whilst I won't be doing it the old fashioned way, I will be finishing in the form of pics and the odd comment here and there. Hope you guys are cool with that, because I need to start a PTR for our WDW trip in 5 months!

So, let the picture onslaught begin :-)

So the cruise is over and we arrived to a rainy grey Port Canaveral, but the rain did nothing to dampen our spirits as we were meeting Joe and Sophia for the very first time and we very excited, as I had been messaging Sophia on the boards etc for a while and when the we found out our holidays were crossing we just had to meet. Our first port of call that morning was iHop, a first for me and Dave.









Then it was on to the Poly!!! Joe and Sophia kindly dropped us back (after kindly picking us up from PC - Thanks guys ).



Home!




Our view






I had one last surprise for Dave in the form of...





Bride and Groom chocolate covered strawberries, which were delish.

We also had another surprise waiting for us...







A beautiful wedding frame from Karin & Tom. Thank you so much guys, we love love love it, has pride of place in our living room

We had made arrangements to meet up with Joe and Sophia that night for dinner at Cali Grill.









Karin you'll be pleased to know we had Ron as our server, who was fabulous, we mentioned you and Tom and, sorry it's late, but he says hi

It was my turn for a surprise from Dave in the form of...



A Stitchy cake!!!





I was very surprised and love love loved the cake (contrary to what my face looks like in this pic - was tired)





Absolutely loved dinner and was so glad J&S did too (as they very kindly agreed to try CG again after a bad experience a few years back).

Next up is our first MK day and our first park with J&S

This CM was having a lovely time dancing away, wish I had gone up and danced with her























Lunch was at Liberty Tree Tavern, we had a little wait before being seated and the boys had to do some colouring while waiting

I'm so glad that you are finishing your TR. We had so much fun! IHOP was fun and so was the surf shop.

We had a great MK day together too. We ate at LTT in Jan 2013 and noticed that while the food is still awesome, the portions have gotten smaller.

I can't wait to see more pics and relive your trip with you!!
