i think the bandana will work for Joshua then. I'll grab him a few tattoos too. I'm really curious as to how interested he'll be in pair ate night and the tween club.

I am heading down to WDW on Sunday night- I can't believe it! So happy your big trip is nearly here- I guess when I get back from mine, you will be in full on yippee skippee mode- lol-


Tonight you're gong to WDW? Have fun! I don't think I knew about this trip. Details girl.

I think it is going to be the last night. It will make for a long travel day. I think that's something that can be played by ear though. Wonder how many people the theater holds?

She emailed them with the top 3 times and were just waiting to hear.

The E's alternative between that and the non stop chatter that is now complete with DRAMA when things aren't going they way they want, or they are being questioned on something they don't want to be questioned on. So very put upon at times are those two!

And then they can turn around and be wonderful. Totally pod people.

And isn't it crazy how they can be so alike and so different at the same time?

C is my monosyllabic one. G won't shut up. J knows when but sometimes chooses not to exercise that right.

And you're totally right, they are also wonderful and I couldn't live without them. Parenthood is so unfair.

Exactly, if you have hoop earrings, those are good but don't buy anything. On the bandana it's not so much the hair, it's how big is his head?

His head is average I think but he's got a ton of mop top hair.

That is SO frustrating! Then you get even more wound up as you try to tell yourself to stop thinking.

Bingo. That's exactly it. I'm so envious of those who can turn their brain off.

What are you planning on doing in your pj's? Ugh on midnight premieres. I dozed off at at least one 10:30 movie. LOL.

Midnight premiere or 8:30 am movie. Folks from out meet group are planning on the midnight premiere of Captain America.

We have a super fun FB meet group. I can't wait for our mixology class.

I agree. We'll play it by ear. The Muppet Movie may be playing so I think I could talk Joshua into that. He won't see Frozen again.

As much as you want to see the movies, there is so much going on you still may find that you don't make it to as many as you want. We were lucky tomake it to one movie on each cruise, but we did do a lot of booze tastings!

You know me girl, I like all the info even if we don't end up making it. A midnight movie sounds great on paper as I sit here in gloomy Utah but may be a different story on night 4 of the cruise. I'm in for one group Mixology, Pam too. Cannot wait.

Did you read that they changed pirate night and optional dress up night? Pirate night is now 3/31, the same night as our Palo dinner reservations. What should we do? I can't miss the pirate party.

Vegas was a blast, lots of stinky 12 y/o's. They are such a good group of kids, we had fun and Joshua played well. We didn't make it to the championship and didn't expect to. Utah ball is totally different than outside Utah ball.


We're so close! Your trip is close too.

Bummer, I had not heard that about Pirate Night changing. No, you definitely cant miss Pirate Night dinner on your first cruise. Want to cancel Palo or try to change it to a different night?


11 Days til Vacation!!!!

Woot woot!!! I'm seriously so crazy freaking out! It's hard to concentrate at work. Joshua's super excited too. We're trying to tone it down a little at home, being sensitive to the girls. They're being sweet but that mom guilt always rears its ugly head.


I don't know what to do about Palo. When I saw the change, I was like wahhhhhhh! What do you want to do? What night should we change it to? Our initial plan was perfect. I wonder why they changed it? Someone from our FB group called and said that Disney replied its rare to change it but for this cruise they did. It'll be amazing regardless.

I know how you're feeling, its so exciting!!!!!!!

I'm honestly ok either way. The main dining rooms are very nice. If we skip Palo dinner we're still doing Palo brunch. We could switch it to Cozumel night, there are still spots available, but then we'd be doing back to back meals at Palo and maybe Joshua would feel a bit left out. I know you'll do another cruise so you could leave Palo dinner as unconquered frontier until next time with M.

Sadly, I'm guessing we should cancel the Palo dinner. Back to back sounds too filling. I wonder why they changed it? I think you're right, not including Joshua back to back doesn't sound optimum.

Well I don't think we should do the first dinner. Joshua might not feel comfortable yet and it's nice to meet the servers right off the bat. Of course now the second night is out. We could change Palo brunch to the first sea day but I really think you'll still be exploring the ship. And if we changed the dinner to the fourth night that would mean we'd have brunch and dinner on the same day which will probably be too much of a good thing on one day. We could try for the last dinner but it's nice to say goodbye to the servers, especially if you're planning to do the buffet on disembarkation day. We could always cancel brunch and do dinner either the third or fourth night. Whatever you'd like to do better is totally fine with me.

Very strange that they'd change things so close to sail date. The only reason I can think of is it having something to do with the fireworks. Maybe they'll be staying in Cozumel later than planned.

I had the same thought. I just happened to be looking at my online reservation when it went nuts (think a seizure for a website) and all of the sudden it was changed before my eyes. Also, our first sea day changed to Key West. Then as fast as it changed, the sea day switched back and became a sea day again. I rebooted because it was so bizarre. But the pirate night changes remained the same. It's like they can't make up their mind. Definitely weird.

Thats wild you saw it happening. I know sometimes they stay in port later than usual for the staff. Its the only thing I can think that would affect things.

I say we stick with brunch the second sea day. Joshua will be well into his groove by then. Plus if I am going to pig out, I'd rather do it at brunch. By dinner I could well be stuffed already. Are you going to do the Palo dinner or dinner? And I totally agree with meeting/saying goodbye and the server dynamics.

I'd love if they extended the Cozumel time but I think 5:45 pm still gives a ton of time off the ship. Have you decided how you'll spend the day?

Ket West? I'm all for that if they'd like to add a day to the cruise.

What does staff do in port? If it's drink and shop, dinner should be interesting.

Sounds good I'll do Pirate Dinner if thats ok. Palo dinner alone does not hold the same appeal.

I think that's exactly what they do, but not all of them have the day off so we'll be safe at dinner.
