And of course all that yummy stuff from Minnesoder!!!
what a sweety

Hopefully, this one will make it home with someone, I wonder who???.... (Unfortunately, it is only one per cabin- whether you are all the same family or not).
i was wondering about that. that sucks since both of you were castaway members

What were we looking to do now that didn't involve the pool?
get another DOTD !

FOOD! Cabanas, to be exact! Time to strap on the feed bags! Here is most of what was offered-
ok that will do also

Cont'd later, I need to hit the gym (no doubt because of that buffet!)- I am also having some PB issues, and I don't want to lose my post! See ya soon!

the gym.. not in my vocabulary LMAO

So you take the aft elevator up to Deck 11 and cut through Cabanas to come out on the pool deck....
makes perfect sense to me.. go thru cabans grab some chow hit the pool.. is there a bar inbetween cabanas and the pool cuz if so Im gonna be a happy girl

In fact, we got lost trying to leave Cabanas and a nice CM (Ellen will be back with photo) had to escort us out of Cabanas to the deck. Weird. Just weird.
I love that you guys are making all kinds of friends with the CM's

it looks fabulous and fresh nothing like it was sitting there for a while.. that was what our disney cruise looked like the 1st time

Lunch finished, it was time to head to the adult deck- but where the heck is it, anyway?? Up next!
cant wait

Whatever you do don't ever mention that one time... at band camp....

So once we got all our giggles out of the way - wait, I don't think we left the giggles for the next FOUR DAYS...... but once we got THOSE giggles out of the way, we were in the terminal in no time at all!

Check us in Mama Ellen!



And of COURSE I have our pic with the Big Cheese (minus the hussy rat he was with earlier....)



It was finally THAT time!!!!



Nothing better than that loooooong walk from the terminal to the ship.

But then we were torn with.... the Introduction. Anyone who has ready my TRs (shameless plug for McSparkleson TRs!!!!), knows that we have struggled the past two cruises with the "Introduction." Should we use our real name? McSparlesons? Right Said Fred?

So when we arrived at the ship, the nice CM asked us for our family name.



We all looked at each other, let out some more giggles, and said DISMOMS!!!!! He checked out our shirts and then announced......



"The Disney Dream welcomes, personal guests of Captain Jack Sparrow.... The DISMOMS!!!!"

To which the entire ship started rocking back and forth as everyone rushed from all corners of the Dream to see THE Dismoms....

It's true... but I don't wanna brag....

Once onboard we raced up to Palo to snag some ressies for brunch, but I'll save the Palo pics for the Palo day..... Because first things first.....

Our first DOTD!!!!!



Cheers to the DISmoms and our first DISmoms cruise!!!! Why oh why can't Lonnie get over her fear of innertubes in bathtubs?





EEP! I don't know what to get rid of in that post... but really I just wanted to quote him saying: Personal Friends of cap. Jack Sparrow! I am SOOO wearing a Jack shirt the day we board for the Hawaii Cruise *my mom and I* LOVING this thread!!! More please!

Wow! The food at Cabanas looks awesome for a buffet! Ours on the Wonder last year kind of stunk. I wonder if they have stepped it up, or if it's just because it's the Dream?

Wondering what the first impression of those virgins was? Anybody? Anybody? Ferris Bueller?

Love the picture you posted from the adult pool with all the brown chairs that was by the hot tub. That corner is where we spent a lot of time while on our cruise in March - thanks for the memories. And the big round chair was Julie's chair. (Julie who is also going on the NYE cruise). She just loved sitting in it.

I just had dinner and your pictures make me HUNGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the update - the photos are awesome and bring back so many fond memories, let alone add to our excitement of being there in 42 days.

Cabanas looks awesome - we have never been on sailaway day (we always went to Enchanted Garden), maybe we should give it a try in August. And I am impressed by your in room gifts - you have some mighty fine friends.

I was waaaaaay behind-back on arrival day!

you are on the ship!!!! I bet the newbies were in awe! I've heard so many mixed reviews of the Quiet Cove, I really wonder if they will change it up somehow during the first dry dock.

Where are Joan and Cammie sitting in tha 666 pic? It looks really relaxing!
They were up on the adult deck- which will be in my next update.

Well helloooooo stranger! How many more days until you leave? We all REALLY enjoyed Palo's- I personally felt it was by FAR the best brunch I have ever had on DCL- the quality of the food was fabulous!

Stay tuned for our own personal champagne tasting.....

Yea- you should be very, very glad this won't be your 1st newbie DCL cruise- you are avoiding a TON of humiliation.

Of course, there is the DISmoms initiation for you to worry about.... just don't forget an extra bra to wear for earmuffs around EPCOT- Kara and I already have your clown shoes and rubber nose....


remember 2 people CAN fit on a door as long as one of them isnt Rose
Always good to know!

A 15K rat? Only on Disney.

I can't wait to hear your comparisons of the pools. Thanks to DS loving the clubs, we got to spend quite a bit of time at the pool on the Magic. Although our sea days were quite windy that the water from the hot tubs was splashing into the pool. And then the rocking of the water... I'm onl 5' 2", and the pool levels would rock over 1.5 foot at a time!

Can't wait to see how you all fit in one cabin! Cozy!
It was really ok in the cabin- unless you minded certain people sawwing wood all night long.... Bt we figured that out.

Really, it was fine having 4 in the cabin except for a couple of times- like when we were unpacking or packing. Getting ready was fine because some of us always went to the spa to shower, we actually preferred it, and then we also got to use all that lovely spa stuff to shower with! But we were in the cabin so little, 4 was fine-

Although, I think 3 next year will be better.

And we had a wave pool on our cruise ;last summer- the Explorer REALLY cooks on the 2 sea days back to NJ from Puerto Rico. We thought it was a lot of fun, and pretty funny!

I thought this buffet was very good- even if I am not a big buffet fan. The asparagus, lamb chops, and crab claws were my favorites.

Hey- it looks like we have a new bus- back to GAT, huh? They came at 7:37 this morning- good thing we were almost ready, that was about 10 minutes earlier than the other company! Great to know about Hannah and her navigation- very helpful, thanks!

The adult area was soooo nice and REALLY big- much bigger than on Explorer last year. I just wish it had been a little cooler.....were you hot on your cruise?

Our vacations are quickly approaching!! I just LOVE August!!!!

I thought Cabanas did a very good job- I much preferred it over the last buffet on the Magic-

My personal vote would be for air holes to get some kind of a breeze going up there- I was cooler on deck on the Explorer in August than I was on the Dream in May- and that's just plain wrong. It IS a lovely dedicated to adults space, though- TONS of adult only area, and VERY nice furniture, too-my guess would be they would at LEAST add additional misters or water somehow up there. I know they did on the Fantasy.
