Hey, we got a "Magical Moment" certificate from a couple cast members naming us a "Cutest Couple." There was no cash prize, though.

We were worried 4 nights would be too few, but for our first Disney Cruise it was perfect. Did it leave us wanting more? YES! Would I now ever consider a 3-night? Absolutely not! Though I am pining for a 7-night in my lifetime.

...and we're in the teen's also. The saddest part is watching my tan fade back to pasty whiteness.

The most difficult part for me was on the last night having to pack everything up!! It just confirmed that the cruise was coming to an end too quickly! Four nights was great but the last night felt SO final!!! But yes, now I definitely want to go back!!! Can't wait to book our next cruise!!!

I have planned a few days in the parks after our cruise. I am hoping that it will help to lesson the sad feeling of the cruise being over. I am used to having to leave the parks at the end of vacation, not sure I could handle going home from the ship. I enjoy our children, especially now that they are grown, but I really enjoy our time alone together.

Thank you for sharing! You are so sweet, and funny! My DH and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary on the Dream next month so your report was very helpful.

I have a few questions for you, if you don't mind.

I noticed your Tervis mugs. Did you use them at the soda machine on deck, or just in your room? I read that you have to use their little cups and then pour it into your own. Is that correct?

Where did you get the wet suits? Did you bring them from home? We are cruising Feb 6 and I really want to go snorkeling but I'm a wimp when it comes to cold water. If it keeps you warm, I might have to find some for us.

Did you set a time to pick up the snorkeling gear?...or just go when you got ready?

thanks again!

Loved your trip report, we thinking of taking a 4-day cruise in 2014 for my 30 and we're soaking up as much info as we can (pun intended) as it will be our first ever cruise. Also we're originally from your area albeit across the border in Shawnee, KS.

Thanks, Trena. We used our Tervis mugs for coffee in the morning in our room, washed them out, and then used them at the drink station during the day. I didn't notice any "soda police" whenever we filled up - you're safe if you use you own.

We got our wet suits at a local dive shop (even in the midwest, you can find local dive shops). I'd suggest you try one on rather than buy online - sizes can vary and we still found our 2.5mm suits for about $75. The wetsuits kept my DW (who does not enjoy anything cold) happy for the hours we were in the water.

We reserved our snorkeling gear at Castaway Cay online before we went, but found it wasn't necessary. There were plenty available all day once we got to the snorkeling lagoon by mid-day.
