I said: we'll I'll kill it but I'm certainly not finding it a new home. We started laughing. I grabbed a case of water and slammed it right on top. We lifted the water and it was still moving. I hate for anything to suffer so I jumped on the water, then it was dead. I'm sorry to any PETA folks reading this but between that and the tarantula two days before, I had my fill of creepy crawlers.

I'm glad you liked the photos. It was such an amazing vacation.

I'm ready to switch to cruise mode though. If I didn't have the cruise to look forward to, I'd be a basket case. I'm over the winter.

How are you?
EEEK!!!!!!!!!!! I'd have screamed and I am so not a wimp but a Scorpion???????? Tarantula I could handle better.

Go figure.

Ok so I need a refresher. Flying in day of or day before? I can't believe you haven't bought yet but given that they've dropped clearly the right call!

Document dance!!!!!


Potentially you could get there in time for the 11:35 flight, are you leaving from FLL? Remember thats a 45 minute drive and you'd have to get off the ship 1st thing, it could make for a stressful last day of vacation.

Uh oh, about feeling guilt at leaving the girls? Going to add them?

There is so much to do every hour of the day, I cant wait for you to see first hand could you post the link to the navigators?

I love a beer in the morning on vacation. I like to have a cool slow buzz all day on vacations like these.

I literally thought of you when I took this pic.

The scorpion was pretty gnarly. Killed him good.

Flying in the day before. I have bought tickets but I always check prices in case the price decreases. We're flying in the day before into Fort Lauderdale, staying the night at the Hilton in Fort Lauderdale, and taking SAS to Miami in the monring. Our boarding time is 11:30.

I'll find the link and post it for you.

I'm not going to take the 11:35 flight. I don't want to be stressed the last morning, ya know? I want to enjoy the magic as long as possible. Still debating on the 4:30 but it puts us in so late.....I'm thinking of just sticking with what I've got. Not sure it's worth the stress.

Circle or highlight all the ones that interest you, and then out of the ones that overlap you must decide which one you'd enjoy more and make sure you factor in some relaxing time

Relax? Define please?












We'll relax in Cozumel and CC. Of course we've got our Palo which will be chill and hopefully I'll be able to hit up the Rainforest Room.

I didn't see any DVC things for current members.

I can't open them on the iPad, but it's usually called a Members Celebration, and is on the first afternoon around 3:00 or on the second morning.
