It's all downhill from here.

Okay, so happy turkey day to everyone, for anyone that is still interested I finally will be making so updates!

So I booked our airfare but instead of flying out of Buffalo we will be flying right out of Niagara Falls, we have a very small airport here and I never even knew they flew to Orlando until a friend told me. I didn't even know there was another airport in the Orlando area. Out of NF Allgiant Air flys into Orlando-Sanford for almost half the price of anyflights I could find. I'm suprised with all the time I've ever spent researching over the years I never realized this could be an option. The only downfall is if we were going right to WDW there would be no Magical Express but since we are doing the cruise first it's not an issue. We will be flying out at 5:30pm on Jan 5th and landing at 8:05pm, we are getting a rental car at the airport and staying the night at the SpringHill Suites Orlando Altamonte Springs for only $76 for the night! We stayed at a Mariott Springhill in West Virginia on our last People and Places trip and they are really nice and the FREE buffet breakfast is good There is also an indoor pool so the kids may want to take a swim before bed, and there is a hot tub in the pool area too for the adults We will get a good nights rest and then head to the port in the morning.

Disney posted the list of movies that will be playing on our cruise:
Muppets
Avengers
Brave (2d/3d)
Odd Life of Timothy Green
People Like us
Frankenweinie
Wreck It Ralph
Lincoln
Monsters Inc University

Excited about Monsters Inc U, we won't have to pay to see that one in the theater now! The kids LOVED Wreck It Ralph so they may want to check that one out again, I really LOVED it too! If you haven't see it go check it out

Cruise Day One!!!

January 6, 2013, finally will be the BIG day!!! We will wake up and after breakfast at the hotel we will hit the road to Cape Canaveral for about an hour drive, probably the longest hour of our lives anticipating getting to the ship. Our check in time is between 12:30-1:00p and the ship departs at 3:45 p.m. Now depending on what time we actually board will depend on whats next. They say staterooms are ready about 1:30, and we can go get settled into our deluxe oceanview stateroom with veranda:
[IMG]http://************cruises.com/images/sarah/img58.jpg[/IMG]

Either before or after we see our room we will be nice and hungry for lunch, well I'm always nice and hungry but we will be more than ready for our first meal aboard the Disney Dream I would like to hit the buffet at Cabanas. I'm really looking for ward to the food on the ship, I was just talking to Cathleen last night and I mentioned something about being able to try more than one entree at dinner and she said "you can eat as much as you want and it's all free?!" Well definitely not free I shoveled out plenty of cash to pay for this cruise but yeah all you care to enjoy! It's probably a good idea we are doing WDW after the cruise because I will really need to walk off some calories. Rosie has already requested lots of food pics and Cathleen just rolls her eyes at the thought of me taking pictures of all our food So maybe not every plate but I will be sure to get some good food shots.

At 4:00 there is a mandatory lifeboat drill and then when that is over there is the Sailing Away Party and the ship actually sets sail at 5:00pm. We have first seating for dinner so we will be eating at 5:45. I don't know if we will do the live shows everynight although we don't want to miss the show on the Dream called Villains Tonight! it's "a comedic revue-style live show starring the best of the worst Disney villains" sounds really fun. If we don't see a show the first night we may want to just relax and explore the ship, the kids might want to try out the kids clubs, the adults my want to grab a drink at one of the lounges... we shall see can't wait!!!

Jan 7, 2013 - Nassau Bahamas!

So Monday will be our day in Nassau, extended weather forecast is showing a high of 78 degrees! It's 30 here today, burrrrrrrr... We don't have any shore excursions planned, Cathleen says she wants to do a Dolphin meet but I know it's a bit pricy. I am most interested in checking out the straw market and do some bargaining on souvenirs. Not sure what else. While in port I know it's the best time to do stuff on the boat cause it's less crowded. Can't wait to try out the AquaDuck slide! Is it weird I don't really care too much about getting off the boat? I paid all this money to be on this cruise and I don't wanna pay more on shore excursions. I wanna lay by the pool or beach with a piña colada and enjoy the sun while thinking that it may be snowing back home and I'm not there. Oh, that's right and I failed to mention what I will NOT be doing! My one college class I took this Fall is a two part course, the second half is in the Spring semester. All the same students that were in the Fall semester with be in the Spring half and he told us we should have the first 5 chapters of the book for the class read over break I have two words for him (pardon my French) Effin Hilarious! I don't even have the book yet, I am ordering it on Amazon most likely and probably wont get it until after school starts. He even said in class unknowing that I'm going on a cruise, "Make sure you do the reading while on break, I know some of you may be going home for Christmas or on vacation but you will have to bring the book with you to the Beach in the Bahamas." LMAO NOT HAPPENING, I read maybe one chapter of the book this past semester and go an A in the class
The kids are getting super excited too, we have been watching youtube videos of the kids clubs and cruise stuff.
