Oh I would love to do the spa. It looks so relaxing and looking out at the sea. Just have to wait to see what kind of discount my DS girlfriend gets. Then we are off making plans.

Thanks for the updates, Ellen! I am loving hearing about your alone time on the ship. I have a feeling (hope? ) that I will be experiencing some of that this month. DD is so excited to be in the kids' club again after last summer's Wonder cruise that I am thinking I will be enjoying my Kindle, some adult beverages, and some of the adults-only areas of the ship. WOW.

Love the spa pics! What exactly is included with the day pass? I'm thinking it might be a good xmas present for my mom. We sail in Feb, but our PIF day is before turkey day, so...

My vote for toes colors is a hot pink for a smokin momma with all her boys! Gotta have a little girly in there...

Sorry for the mixup on the T's!

I keep reading all these cruise TR's and it really makes me want to go on one soon. It's just so addicting.

I love toe pics.

The spa looks great. I'm going to buy a one day pass too. Not sure that Joshua will be as social as Timmy but I'm thinking I should get an hour here and there to explore.

Ok, I'm treating myself to a daypass on the Dream in October. It looks so much nicer than the Wonder/Magic.

It's very nice...but I think the Dream and the Fantasy blows it out of the water.

Timmy is a little on the quiet side- Joshua will do very well in there, don't worry! The most crucial thing is make SURE he goes the first night for all the ice breakers- that's when they all meet, quiet or not! Disney is better at facilitating this night than anyone else, so it will be fun! And you can explore YOUR clubs on your own, lol.

The Rainforest is great on all the ships- I always loved it on the Magic, which I would think is very similar to the Wonder. Here's a toe pic just for you-





BTW- I'll SEE YOU in less than 2 weeks!!!!

I'm back! I have been focused lately on my new career as a travel agent, so busy training and attending Disney College! I'll be back for replies later- I have a ton of errands to do- we leave for California in 4 days!!!!!!!

And now....back to the Disney Dream. Where life continued to be magical, although a bit chilly. Good thing that pool is heated, huh!





So since it was a bit brisk, I decided to roam indoors to gawk at all the prettiness inside the ship.









I needed to do some shopping- I picked up an adorable little DCL Captain's suit for my favorite little Mousketeer who was about to be born to Mark & Carlie (Mark is Joan & Peter's cousin who works for Disney)- ironically, he was being born this exact DAY, although I didn't know it at the time! I also purchased a couple of photos, so I needed to get a frame (because as we all know, 6 x 8 frames are just not as popular or easy to find once you get off the ship!). Plus the frame had one of those cute little red stickers on it, and I just love me some cute little red stickers (aka- markdowns)! Plus I HAD to get a tshirt and a sweat jacket- the jacket was on sale for like $35, so that was good! The tshirt? Not on sale, but I adore this art on the shirt, it's the picture on the cabin wall on the Dream.



I had walked through here with Timmy earlier on the cruise, and he said he didn't need a souvenir this trip- my teenage sons are on hiatus from Mickey Mouse endorsed clothing, lol! I believe the reponse to "Do you want a tshirt?" was "I'm good."

I went back to the cabin to get some packing in after that, and ordered some room service when Timmy graced me with his presence-



It comes with a LOT of ketchup-



Me? I just wanted a Mickey Bar again- making up for the fact that I forgot to have one on my DISmoms cruise the year before- so the score is EVEN now.





Timmy was outta there after a quick shower- then it was my turn to clean up. I had been drying my hair all week in the bathroom- and wow, did that hairdryer STINK!! UNTIL, that is, I plugged in here by the desk-



Ummm....major DUH moment! Make sure you blowdry at the desk! It really doesn't work too well if you don't!

I popped up on deck to watch my last sunset-





Then decided it was happy hour down in you know where....so off I went to visit the usual suspects in Pink-



Erika is on the left, Hailey is on the right.... great CMs, Disney is lucky to have them! And I was very lucky to get to know them!

Up next- dinner in Animator's...and what are the odds Crush will talk to us...HMMMMMM??????

Four days! Oh my, do you think you will finish this report before you leave? I love CA. When I was in college (Univ of WA - UDUB) we would leave immediately after spring exams and do a two week road trip down the coast. EVERY YEAR! We were poor so we camped a lot and it was still a blast (I am not a camper). Do have major fun on this trip. I hope you plan to share your experiences in a TR. I need to plan a CA trip for Sarah and Rob. Time is running out. Sarah will be off to college in just three years and I doubt she will want to spend her summers touring around the country with Mom and Dad, unless, of course, we are paying for everything.

Congrats on 4 days AND you get to meet Jenny?

I am so jealous of your TA stuff. I really wanted to do that part time, but *sigh* I think I will have to wait until I don't have another full time job.

So glad you got around to having your Mickey bar.

Have a wonderful trip!

Hi,
Joining in late. Followed you over from someone’s tr. I hate Newark airport. When I lived in NJ I flew out of there. The room looks nice.
Kona is so good.
What a great surprise.
I thought Test Track was faster now too.
BOG looked so good.
Nice photo tour around VWL.
ROTF about the horse.
The ship looked so nice. I hope to take a cruise one day.
That is great they let him go into Vibe.
That storm in port looked crazy.
I liked the pics of the boat at night.
I am now hungry after all those food pics. LOL
Love the bike riding pics, the island is gorgeous.
The College of Knowledge is easy.
Great report and have fun in California.

Nice updates! That rainforest room looks really nice. What was the difference between those 2 sauna/steam rooms (one said Rain Forest and one said Water Fun)? Did you try both?

Beautiful Sunset pictures on the water.
