Subbing! Noticed your signature on Stringbean's TR.

Congratulations on your daughter being cancer free for 5 years! That is so awesome. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to be faced with childhood cancer.

Lovely pictures from your first cruise to nowhere. I must admit I have been intrigued by the NYC Disney cruises. Sounds like a blast!

I think the cruise sounds awesome Tim! What a fun idea, a cruise to nowhere. I'm sure Juliana will love it.

Wow, those restaurants look incredible, particularly the Animator's one. I saw a little clip of it somewhere and it's so cool! I bet you guys will love it.

So I'm assuming then that Juliana will be decked out in her princess gear. Does that mean you'll be sporting your pirate gear then??

This is going to be so fun for you all with the princess being center stage of course. I can't believe that soon she'll be cancer free, what a blessing! You'd never even know that she was ill just by looking at her, she's so healthy and vibrant. She's a little angel Tim and deserving of such a celebration. You and Mel are good parents to mark this special time with her.

Thanks for reading! I've seen you on a few TRs that I follow too!

She has done so well. She has an appointment in a few weeks, then 1 more in August.

It was tough for us but we made it through. I wouldn't wish that happening to anybody.

Thanks!!! I am looking forward to this! It is nice to just drive to the port and not have to get on an airplane.

DCL usually has a pirate night but they aren't doing it on the 2 day cruises. That would of been perfect to break out the Jack Sparrow costume.

Juliana has done so well. She has hit every milestone on time and her doctor is very pleased with her progress.(we are too!!!) Now I have to read up on Disney cruises, cuz I feel so unprepared.

The cruise to nowhere sounds wonderful

I have never really thought about it until recently so by the time I checked the prices they were a bit outrageous for 2 nights.

We were on the Dream for a 3 night cruise in Oct. and it was fabulous! There wasn't enough time to check out the ship though, so I think we need to do a cruise to nowhere in the future.

I am looking forward to all the details of your cruise. We looked at NYC DCL trip to nowhere, but eventually it morphed into DisneyWorld.

Savin' it for another time!

It is a little pricey. I think I paid about $1500 for the 3 of us... not cheap by any stretch.

I'm sure this won't be our last Disney cruise. But as was previously mentioned, the prices are crazy. We could of done an 10 night on another cruise line for $1500.

Hi, we'll be on this cruise too with our DD8. Congrats on your daughter being cancer free for 5 years! This is our first Disney cruise also! We are so excited. Thanks for the heads up on requesting the restaurants: Animator's Palate and Lumiere's. Those are two restaurants that I really want to try. I didn't know that you could put a request in with your reservation before the 75 day mark. I called and requested them. DCL told me they would add it to my reservation as a request, but not a guarantee. The trip is a surprise for my DD. She saw the DCL DVD and thought those restaurants would be cool .... when..... we get to go on a Disney cruise.

Of course! It's a cruise! All you do is eat, drink, eat, drink, and then repeat. What's not to love about that, right? And it's all Disney themed, that's my kind of cruise.

If I had to pick one restaurant on that cruise ship, I'd pick that one. Where else can you eat where the whole atmosphere changes color before your very eyes? So cool.

Bummer! Then you could've worn that snazzy pinky ring you have too. Come one, you KNOW you are looking for an excuse to post that pirate pic again. Just don't post that one Kathy loves, you might lose PTR readers...

That is so wonderful Tim! She's a child prodigy and a budding photographer too. You should have her practice her photog skills on Puppy.

A November Odyssey....

Now that the July part of the trip has been revealed, lets talk November.

Why November? First, we thought about October. We really enjoyed being in WDW leading up to Halloween. We love MNSSHP. I kept reading all the info I could about the Fantasyland expansion. It is supposed to be done in October. What if we booked a trip and Fantasyland isn't open? I guess we could go the last week in October but there would be many days of school missed. Looking at Juliana's school schedule, she has Nov. 6th off for election day and she has Nov. 12th off for Veterans day. If we went this week, we could most likely fit in MVMCP (please Disney don't push the starting dates back) and possibly see the Osbourn Lights. We talked it over with our friends and it sounded good to them.

Dates- Melody, Juliana, Christopher, & I are going to fly down Friday Nov. 2 in the evening and stay until Mon. Nov. 12. For a 10 day trip she would miss 4 days of school. Both our other friends are going to arrive on Saturday Nov. 3 and leave on Sat. Nov. 10.

Where? This was a fun one! (I hope you're ready for this) I wanted to stay at CSR, but Melody didn't want to. Dave & Branda didn't want to stay at CBR (they just stayed there) Bill & Jamie didn't really care. So where did that leave us? Looking at POR & POFQ. We read all kinds of reviews and we thought staying at the smaller of the two would be better with the baby (who will be 15 months at the time) Not to mention I can eat beignets every day! We requested a first floor room near a courtyard.


Borrowed from the interweb

This would be a perfect spot for us.


Borrowed from the interweb


We have a while before we have to think about dining. I'm sure trying to coordinate three families for 7 days is going to be a challenge. I think I'll get into this a little more in depth in my next update.


More to come....

Mark and I are still seriously thinking of switching our Disney trip to November or I'll never get a chance to meet the Princess and Prince. Why didn't Mel want to stay at the CSR? Did you guys look into points for a 2 or 3 bedroom villa? Or woul dthat much "closeness" be too much for you guys?

***Did you download that video or pictures?

thanks for reading!!!

I'm glad you requested them... it can't hurt to request. I hope you do end up with them!

That is awesome that you are going to surprise your DD! How are you doing the surprise... just heading to the port?

Where in CT are you from.. we are in the Waterbury area.

If it doesn't work out this year, I'm sure our paths will cross one of these days.

Mel said she has already stayed there and she wants to try something different. I don't argue I just say yes dear.

We actually talked about a villa and renting a house too. I think it was decided that we all needed some personal space.

I need to upload the pics to photobucket... I was about to get off here and go to bed. I'll start the upload and try to post them in a few minutes.
