finally dedicated time to really enjoy your TR, study the pics, awesome! That seems like a lot of food at Remy! I am with you, lamb is not my favorite, one of the few things I don't care for. As for the remainder of your CC visit, your day was just gorgeous - reason enough to book another cruise!

I got rid of Photobucket and went to Flickr.

That meal looks so good. I love Kobe beef. The drink looked good.

Heather! So this goes way back to the beginning of your report, but would you recommend Blizzard Beach for us? DD4 is the smallest of us all, I am going to measure her soon. There is a free day for passholders on May 16 when we are planning on AK, and it might be a nice way to cool off. Just thinking it may be super busy though being free right??

Maybe we are better off just swimming at SAB instead. Anyhoo, any thoughts are appreciated!

Maddie would absolutely love a cruise...as well as you and your hubby It's very different than WDW - of course - but well worth every penny!!!

I always hate the last day of vacay! Lol. But we always try to book something special to enjoy too.
I guess we can look at it this way....even when our trip ends, it's already time to start planning another one

Also not a lamb fan, but that does look beautifully plated.

Nice pictures once again.
Thanks! Maybe you should consider doing Palo Brunch...not nearly as time consuming nor dressy. I think it's around $20....or something like that. We tried to book it, but no luck.

I see you put up an update so I'm off to read.
Hope you're back up to par! Sorry to hear about work. That can make for long days. But just think...you have a Disney vacation approaching

Like Jill said, you would be fine...there's a ton of food!! You wouldn't go hungry...promise.

It's online...Google the name and it'll pop up. If I'm not mistaken, the champagne they used was something specific to Disney.

Also completely relate to having to be perhaps a bit more adventurous in your food choices. I found Victoria & Albert's to be the same way. I ended up surprising myself and liking things I would never EVER have thought I would like.
Isn't V&As great??!!! I kinda wish we had done Remy first then did Vicky & Als. It was hard not to compare the two. I TOTALLY enjoyed Remy....don't get me wrong. But V&A had a slight edge. Hard to beat that place!

What beautiful pictures!

Remy looks fantastic!

Goodness gracious I want to go on another cruise!!!!!
Know all about the dreaded end of the semester!! I'm trying to finish up, too...that's why I've been neglecting the TR. Good luck with the remaining work!

Maybe your next visit to CC will be the same By the next cruise, you should be a pro with your new camera! I expect LOTS of pics!!! No excuses!

Hmmmm.....do your kids enjoy the water? A little? A lot?? Faith and Stephen are good swimmers. Jesse is just ok. If I'm not mistaken, he wore his life jacket most of the time (life jackets provided there) The family ride was way cool...great for all ages. There really was lots to do for the little ones. If you get there early, you should be able to get lots done. I think we did everything by lunch. It was pretty crowded by lunch time but nothing unbearable. If it's free...check it out Blizzard Beach is just really a neat place....not like your basic water park. I would totally go back. In fact, we're already planning to try Typhoon Lagoon on our next big trip. One of the 2 water parks will be a must-do from now on when we visit during the summer.

Heather,

I have been reading along but got behind for a while. I just went back to the begining and wanted to tell you how awesome the pictures are. Both the ones that you took and the ones that were taken on the Dream. The one in the beginning of the TR of your whole family is wonderful! How nice to be able to have a picture of the whole family together. I take a lot of pictures on our trips and try to get up early and sneak out like you do. I'm not as successful getting out alone as you are, one of mine is an early riser but she has become my partner in crime! Hey, we tell the other two..you snooze, you lose!

Hope you are having a great end of school year and looking forward to the summer!

Christine

Also chiming in later than I should have. Back when you first started this thread and posted about your AKL stay I think on the Concierge thread, it really convinced my wife and I to finally take the plunge and stay at AKL, something we wanted to do for years and never did. Your pictures and descriptions really convinced us. Well, WE LOVED IT. We even decided to add on a resale AKL DVC contract so we'll have lots of stays in the future.

Aside from AKL, I still read the DCL posts, even though we had zero intention of taking another cruise anytime in the near future, and if we did, it likely would have been NCL. Well, now because of various happenings, my wife is looking to do some work from home as a Disney TA, and you really need to have gone on a Disney cruise to book those. So, it's not the Dream, but we're on her sister ship, the Fantasy, in September, in the same room category (4C), so now I'm re-reading all those posts again. I might be jumping ahead, but did you do Palo for lunch or dinner? If so did you like it?

Thanks again for putting all the time you have into this thread!

So, are you done with school yet? since you start soooooo early I figure you must be. Have you gotten to the POR part of the trip yet? It's almost time for the next one isn't it
I leave Aug 7 for Florida and make it up to wdw aug 17. Of course you'll prob be back to school by then. But we will agree not to utter THAT word thru the summer till Sept when I have to go back .
