Day 3 part 2

Since my plans for immediate rest were out, I figured the next best thing was to get Jack worn out so he would need rest too. With that in mind we headed to the Mickey pool!
Jack is a water creature of some type. While he can’t actually swim, he is fearless when it comes to the water. He jumped right in and never looked back. I stood on the side and watched and eventually someone came and asked me if I would like a drink. Why yes, yes I would! I mean what goes better with an over full stomach than a fruity drink right?
After about three minutes, Jack decided he was ready for the slide. Adults aren’t allowed to go so I wasn’t sure he would go through with it. The stairs are actually partially inside so I couldn’t see him for much of the time. We had run into some of our table mates Shayna and Jack, and they watched for my Jack with me. Pretty soon we saw this

After one more ride down the slide, he headed back to the pool.

After he had splashed and played, I got him some lunch from Pluto’s and then we headed down for a much needed nap.
When we got up it was time for Minnie’s Fiesta Grande. Jack was not really interested in this so we snapped a few pictures and left.






When we got back to the room there were some FE gifts




Tonight was formal night. Typically formal night would have been the night before, but since it was Halloween they juggled the schedule a little. I get kind of excited about formal nights. I was hoping for a good picture of me and Jack, but no such luck.



Jack was obviously tired of having his picture taken…

We headed into dinner. I was glad we were in Triton’s for formal night since it feels (to me) like the most formal restaurant.
Salad of Mixed Baby Greens- pears, pistachios and apple cider vinaigrette


Yachtsman Steahouse Grilled NY Strip with asparagus and oven baked potato topped with herb garlic butter


Golden Mickey's Sweet Temptations- Creme Brulee, Golden Chocolate Award, Raspberry Cheesecake

Again, the dessert on the right (raspberry cheesecake) was less than fabulous… weird!
Dinner was delicious, but I wasn’t all that hungry… After dinner we went downstairs to change and then headed to see…

I really liked this show and we had great seats. It really paid to get there a bit early and sit towards the front. It helped that it was just two of us. I know Disney has a strict no seat saving policy, but they don’t seem to enforce it much. I don’t have a problem with dad saving seats for wife and daughter when they go to the bathroom or something, but I do have a problem with dad leaving dinner early to stake our a row of seats while mom and kids go shop in the store. Oh well, rant over…
The show was great, as usual. Afterwards we went back to the room and watched cartoons. This is where the title of my TR comes into play. Every night when we turned on cartoons, it was Duck Tales, Gummi Bears or Rescue Rangers that was on. It was such a blast from the past and I was geekily excited that Jack was getting to watch cartoons from MY childhood. I have a very similar feeling about Toy Story, but this was even better. Me (being the go with the flow mom I am) would ask Jack if he wanted to read stories and go to bed or watch another episode instead. Invariably, he chose the shows, which was fine with me! It’s one of those little memories that make your vacation special!

Great updates!

I'm super excited about the Palo Brunch! I forgot that you ordered an entree too Geez, we're going to be so full. Is the gratuity already included in the $20?

Jack looks SO handsome in his little tie!

Yes, you will be very full, make sure to plan a nap or lounge by the pool after!

I don't believe gratuity is included and I was unsure of how much to add, but I added $5... it didn't seem like much, but I didn't know what to do and I am not made of $$

Thanks, I love that tie of his! Of course that white shirt got irreparably stained at dinner, but it was almost too small anyways

Oops!

Something I forgot to add in my Day 3 update was that I did a load of laundry! See what happens when I try to write an update without notes??!!

So on the first night, the wierdest thing happened! I woke up and got up to check the time (only thing I dislike about not having a window) and then Jack woke up because he needed to go potty. I took him to the bathroom and when I turned around I noticed something on the floor... blood! I look up at his face and sure enough, he has blood on it, and it's coming from his nose and dripping EVERYWHERE! He was still half asleep and completely oblivious so I calmed down a bit since he obviously wasn't injured and let him finish going potty. Then i had to stand him up on the toilet (so he wouldn't step in the blood on the floor) and take off his PJ shirt and wipe him (and the floor) up. Then I had him sit on the toilet with kleenex on his nose while I checked out the bed... and sure enough on the lovely white comforter there was blood. Thankfully since Jack sleeps funny (most nights he ended up lenghtwise) it wasn't in a crucial place and since it was only around 2 am we needed to go back to sleep. Finally his nose stopped bleeding and everything was fine, he went back to bed. The only problem was his lovey (a little green bear blanket thing he sleeps with) had gotten blood on it, so I couldn't let him sleep with it. I had intended to do laundry the next day, but we were actually kind of busy on that second day, so I waited until after our nap on that day 3. I ended up doing all of our dirty laundry up until that point in one load. It was super easy, I just had to swipe our KTTW card. We started it before the pictures and everything and got it back out after dinner! I did feel really bad that the steward was going to have to change the comforter after only one day, and I made sure to let her know as soon as I saw her next, but she was really sweet and took care of it right away.

And in case anyone is wondering, Jack has NEVER had a bloody nose before or since. It was the strangest thing. It's better than the incident on the last cruise we went on by ourselves where he threw up the first night and ran a fever...

Yikes! Poor little guy. Glad all was fine in the end. That's weird that he's never had a bloody nose before AND it happened on the first night.

Tip is included at Palo...but many people do add a little extra.

Palo looks so good. I am starving right now and those pictures sure didn't help me out at all.

I love your formal dress, where did you get it?

Good to know about Palo! Yes, as I was posting those I was getting kinda hungry myself!

I got it at David's Bridal for my friends wedding in May. I got it shortened, it was originally a floor length, but since they were already going to have to take off a few feet (since I am so short) I figured a shorter length would make it more wearable for the future. I wore it for formal night on our Carnival cruise too. I wear it whenever possible, especially since I got $70 shoes to match...

I know!! I had no idea what to think. And these things always happen in the middle of the night, when you are completely unprepared! I was worried for the next few nights, but everything was fine.

DAy 4 part 1

November 2nd was our first port day. Disney Cruise Line has stopped docking in Mazatlan due to security concerns, so on this itinerary we had one stop in Puerto Vallerta and two days in Cabo San Lucas. Puerto Vallerta was our first stop.
Last May, my family took a Carnival cruise for my sister’s college graduation celebration. One of the days was spent at Half Moon Cay, the private island that Carnival and Holland America share. On the private islands they have private cabanas you can book and we had an amazing time. Jack really enjoyed the ocean (water creature remember!) so I knew that we needed to spend some time on the beach this trip. I agonized over which beach excursion to do, in which port, or if we would be better off just doing it ourselves at a public beach etc. I booked the Paradise Beach Adventure in Puerto Vallerta and it was PERFECT. It also happened to be the cheapest beach adventure offered…
Along comes Wednesday, November 2nd. I knew we weren’t getting into port until 9 am or something so Jack and I still got to sleep in a bit before getting up and getting breakfast. I evidently did NOT take pictures of our breakfast this morning. This is slightly shocking to me… but oh well. I do remember we ate at the buffet again because I saw the city.
After we ate we got all our stuff together and headed to Wave Bands to meet for our excursion. The city tour met in wave bands right before us, I know because our table mates were on that excursion and we saw them as they left.
Once we got all checked in and got our towels we waited a bit before they led us out. There were a ton of people on this excursion, three buses worth to be exact. The bus ride was about 30 minutes and we passed by the Wal-Mart and the mall on our way out of town.


The excursion guide filled us in on some of the history of the city as we went. Soon we were pulling up at the resort! Lunch was being served at 12 so we headed to the beach first. They had these lovely little areas where they had bar service etc. Drinks (alcoholic and non) were included with our excursion. We unpacked our stuff and put on some sunscreen before heading to the water!



Jack had been intent on building a sand castle. I had brought some buckets and shovels with us for this very purpose ($1 section at Target) so we decided it was time.


The problem was the dry sand was really hot, but on the wet sand, every once in a while a rogue wave would come up and sweep away the sand toys. That and neither of us in actuality really wanted to build a sandcastle. It’s a fun idea in theory, but in reality, sand is messy and uncomfortable…
So back to the water we went!







The resort from the water


Jack kept wanting to go farther and farther out. When a wave came, I would have to grab him and lift him up so he didn’t get slammed in the face with it. A couple times a wave turned out to be bigger than expected and he still got a face full of salt water, but nothing kept him from wanting to keep going! Fearless! Crazy!
After a little while my arms were tired from lifting, and a couple times he head butted me in the face in his excitement so I decided it was time to rinse off. We gathered our items and spent about 10 minutes getting as much sand as possible off us before heading to the lounge chairs by the pool. We set our stuff down and headed to lunch. They set up a special buffet for us, burgers and tacos and salad and then they took our drink orders. I had a Pina Colada and Jack had a pineapple juice.

Day 4 part 2

After lunch it was time to hit the pool!


I had debated about bringing Jack’s life vest, and we hadn’t used it in the ocean, but I figured we might as well use it in the pool. Best. Decision. Ever.


The pool has two identical water slides that look like crocodiles. In order to get to the slides, you have to get to the island in the middle, go up in the tower you see, then across the bridge. I am not a huge fan of water slides, but I obviously wasn’t going to send my three year old by himself to investigate so off we went. That had to be the fastest slide I have ever been on. It’s made out of cement or concrete or something and has a heavy duty water spray that makes it SUPER SLICK. I was screaming the whole way down. I did it a couple times with Jack on my lap, but it’s so fast and you hit the water with so much force I was practically dragging him under with me so I decided to let him try it on his own. And he proceeded to go about 50 times. Maybe even more. You can swim from where you end up at over to the island and climb out the ladder to get to the tower, so I positioned myself at the bottom of the slide and just watched. He loved every second. The first time I let him go by himself though he went down the other side so that was a heart stopping moment, but once I impressed upon him the importance of going down the slide I was at we were fine. I got to spend a couple hours lounging in the pool and he got to slide a million and one times. I was so glad I had brought the life jacket! Of course he drank so much pool water we had to run to the bathroom six separate times, but that’s to be expected. He really had a great time. I couldn’t get a picture of him going down the slide since I had to be in the water, and it was the one moment I wished I had bought a disposable waterproof camera, but oh well.
Exhausted from the fun!

Just before it was time to go we went to the bathroom again and I changed Jack into clothes and changed into a dry shirt. Then I got Jack a sprite and I got a Corona while we waited to get back on the bus.






I took some more pictures as we were leaving, and on the way back to the ship.



We saw this a lot, people standing in the back of trucks! I mean, at least sitting is safer!!


I’m not sure what it says exactly, I just thought it was funny they were using Homer as an example!

There was a little market area set up across from the dock. I wanted to do a little shopping but Jack was cranky and exhausted, and I wasn’t sure about the money situation, if they took American dollars or not, etc. so we got a couple pictures and got back on board.

Evidently this day was Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead so alters like this one were set up all over the city.

Great photos and I love your report. We sail in Feb on the MR and my DS is the same age as yours, so it's great to see what your DS enjoyed so I know for my own! Keep the report coming!

Day 4 part 3

Once on board we went back to our room and changed/showered. I went to check my email at which point I found out that even though my phone had died on embarkation day, once it recharged and turned on it had gotten me charged over $25 in roaming fees. I immediately went back to the room and took my phone apart, battery out and everything (I had turned it off when I discovered it had turned back on) just to make sure. This super irritated me because there was no cell signal in our room anyways, I had to go up a few decks to call my parents when we were still docked in LA but whatever.
I also had emailed my parents to let them know Jack said he was missing them, so maybe they could call. I gave them a couple of time windows, but as it turns out it is like $6.95 a minute for people on land to call, and they were having trouble with it anyways, so they never did call.
I will say that I used the internet several times, mostly in ports and it was plenty fast each time. I specifically waited till we were in port because I assumed the signal would be stronger than when we were at sea and I managed to get lots accomplished in a small amount of minutes. I was glad I opted for the pay by the minute plan since I ended up using less than 50 minutes the whole time.
After we were done with emails I went to the desk to ask about changing money. They said that in small amounts, shop owners will take dollars so it wasn’t a big deal.
We wandered a bit and I got a drink of the day (shocker!) and took some pictures.

For informational purposes-

Market from the ship












Hidden Mickey?


I never figured out what this pool is for! I never saw anyone in it…


Parasailing!


The mall


Even in Mexico…


We headed back inside and decided to get in line for some character greets. This is where my one and only complaint comes from… in the lobby of the ship they usually staggered the character greets. One would be on the right side and then about 15 minutes later another would be on the left. We got there too late to get in line for Pinocchio, the line was closed, which was no big deal so we went to the other side to get in line for Jiminy Cricket . There was another family in line in front of us. We waited. And waited. And when it was about time for him to come out a CM came and asked us what we were waiting for, and they told us Jiminy would be taking Pinocchio’s place on the other side, that the line had formed over there. The lady in front of me was way more upset than I was, but I was a bit irritated. She said she would see what she could do. We walked over to that side and a manager came over to find out what was going on. We explained we were waiting where we were told to wait, and that we couldn’t even have gotten in line there before because the CM had said the line was closed. She said she’d be right back, and then she came back and said that since Jiminy was a quickly moving line we could go ahead and get in at the end and we’d be fine. Um, what? You want us to wait in line AGAIN? Jiminy hadn’t even officially gotten started yet and the lovely woman in the front of the line had offered to let us go in front of them, since she KNEW we had been waiting, she had seen us across the lobby. They told her no. The other mom was way more hysterical about this than I was and when the manager said she would take care of it and asked for stateroom numbers, she stormed off to guest services. I went ahead and gave the manger my stateroom number and headed into dinner. All they kept saying was he would be available again at another time (which was during the Toy Story show) so we could see him then. I thought it was pretty poorly handled since we were waiting based on information we had been given by a CM. I didn’t even care that much about Jiminy, it was the principle of the thing that I had made my son wait in line when he really didn’t want to and now it was for nothing. I figured if she said she would take care of it, she would, and trusted that by giving her our stateroom number, something would be done, and we went headed off to dinner…
Tonight was our first Animator’s Palate night! I have heard such awesome things about this restaurant and I was glad we would be eating here tonight as well as our last night!






I had been waiting for this meal just for this one appetizer! Risotto!!!




Jack had already removed the unwanted veggies before I could take a picture!


Walls changing…


And then they ran into some technical difficulty! Whatever show type thing they usually do, they couldn’t. The waiters all went in the back and everyone waited and waited… and waited… until they gave up!


At dinner we all talked about our days and the other girls told me about the city tour. They had two buses for that one as well and they were each on a different bus. One was not air conditioned! They said everyone was so hot and sweaty and it really detracted from the experience. The other had the bus drop them off in what’s called the “romantic district” at the end to do some shopping. She said it was really great, but I think they made her sign a waiver in case anything happened. Overall, they were not impressed with the tour.



The Toy Story show was on tonight. I knew Jack was sleepy, so I let him put on his Buzz Lightyear pj’s and wear them to the show. They had special drinks that night for kids, smoothies with light up Buzz clips on the straws. Jack already had one of these from WDW but as fate would have it, he had broken the clip earlier in the week, so I got him a new one. What I found most interesting is all the drink sellers had these and weren’t asking anyone if they wanted to order an adult beverage. I finally asked a guy and he said he could get me a drink. We had gotten to the show super early to get good seats, so this was our view




This show was great! I really am amazed at the quality of their productions, every show was fantastic.
After the show we headed back to the room. On the way we saw a short line for characters so we got in line and this is what we got...



I am so glad I went ahead and got these guys out of the way now because that manager NEVER got back to us about anything. I kept waiting thinking they would do something special and it never happened. I really wouldn’t have even been upset if they had done something, ANYTHING to make it up to us. I mean, why take down the info if you aren’t going to do anything. Don’t say you are going to “make it right” if you aren’t. I wonder whether the other lady who went to guest services got any resolution? I had made my peace with it until the last night we ran into someone from our FE group who told us they got a special invitation to go meet ALL the characters on the last night. After I found that out I was so disappointed that they didn’t feel like our “issue” was important enough to be resolved or even acknowledged. It is the first time I ever felt like Disney’s guest services had let me down. I didn’t let it put a damper on the trip though, and everything else was fantastic, so it hasn’t changed my opinion of Disney or anything, I really think it boils down to that one manager who didn’t follow through.
Anyways, after our fantastic meet, we went back to our room and there was an envelope (yes, I admit I thought it would be something about our issue) and inside was our confirmation for our future cruises.
We continued our nightly ritual and watched some Duck Tales before bed. Jack was truly exhausted and passed out halfway through the episode.

Your son, no joke, looks like he needs to be in water at all times. Does he do good for baths? I'm so glad that the excursion worked out well for you! I'm surprised he went down the slides by himself!

I know a bit of Spanish, so in order it's:hard hat, vest (Safety vest), and boots. It is funny that they used homer, of all people!
