My confession is that I've been on this board for a few years and have never actually sailed on DCL or any other line!!! We are hoping to sail for the first time ever this Oct on the Wonder. Hopefully it will happen so that I finally have DCL experience and can contribute in the future.

Goofy, a dog, wears clothes, walks upright, speaks words, and uses his front paws as hands. The only thing more concerning is the fact that I actually spent time pondering this! LOL
Glad I'm not the only one!

Goofy and Pluto are my two favorite characters and I've never gotten a picture with Goofy since cruising. I have with Pluto.

I think Pluto is a lab based on personality. But his ears make me think some sort of hound. He could be an American lab (longer snout, colors, etc) and have some of the recessive pre-Labrador traits (which would explain the ears.). I've never heard of Goofy being a mule though I've never heard of. I just though Goofy was a human-fied hound. I could be wrong.


...Now I feel bad that I've spent time on that topic.

I booked our first cruise on a whim only 9 days from sailing. I am a planner so I crammed all kinds of research into those few days. My husband wasn't eager to go. I know think about the cruise, and going back, regularly. I just need to convince him. I would rather go on a cruise and only spend a couple of days in the park.

I always thought he was a dog too. But now that I think of it, being a mule makes a little more sense since he's paired up with Clarabelle the cow. Not that mules usually fall in love with cows...lol.

This thread gets better every day!

It embarrasses me when they announce my name upon boarding. I try to walk in with the family ahead of mine, like I'm just part of their group, so we can be under the radar. Lol.

He's not paired up with Clarabelle, that's Horace Horsecollar she pairs up with and he is a horse.

But now that I think about it I think Goofy has paired up with her from time to time, I think that's because Horace lost prevalence but Horace was her original boyfriend. The change in Clarabelles love interest maybe why I think whoever has said Goofy is a mule may be confusing his as Horace. I wonder if that is why Horace fell to the wayside, maybe because he resembled Goofy too much.

We had diff last names in our cabin. So when they asked, we said The Twins. That was a nice welcome..we overheard one of the CMs say "they really are twins!"

This has come up before. You can basically tell them...anything you want.

That's ok! I can so relate. I joined this board prior to taking my first DCL to get info and it took awhile for my DCL dream to come true. I have now cruised DCL only once although I have cruised other lines. I would love to cruise DCL again in the future.

All of my confessions!

On our first cruise, we "christened" the room as soon as we got in it! We are also members of the Verandah Club and the Exotic Rasul Club. In fact, I cracked my tail bone in the Exotic Rasul room and was in constant pain for the remainder of our vacation.

We bought mini bottles of spiced rum to dinner every night to add in our cokes. I don't know what I'm going to do this time since I've given up drinking soda.

I came to dinner EVERY night tipsy from the giant chocolate martini's I had in the Sessions lounge.

Every afternoon I walked around with a cup of Bailey's Irish cream in hand. I was on vacation! I drank a lot!!!

We threw a message in a bottle overboard. No word yet on it's whereabouts.

On our second cruise, I hated the fact that we brought my parents along!

I accidentally let my father (in a wheelchair) roll into traffic when I was unloading him at the port. I then laughed about it!

I almost dumped my father out of his wheelchair as we went over a "speed bump" in the hallway of the ship... and laughed at that, too!

Ok, I'll admit I was trying to kill my father and make it look like an accident! (Just kidding.... maybe)

I yelled at my father and bullied him into getting in line for pictures with the characters. He later admitted to having fun with said characters!

We plotted to throw an old woman and her dog overboard!

Although I enjoy meeting new people on the cruise, I don't want to be new best friends and hang out with you. I prefer to be alone with my spouse! ... See confession #1!

Well, actually Dippy Dawg:

In the newspaper comic strips, this new character was first given the name Dippy Dawg. A 1938 book indicated the first change to Dippy's name, "The Story of Dippy the Goof," and by 1939 the final change was made to Goofy with the release of the cartoon "Goofy and Wilbur."

From Wikipedia
Quote:
Originally known as Dippy Dawg, the character is more commonly known simply as "Goofy," a name used in his short film series. In his 1950s persona, Goofy was called George Geef, or G. G. Geef, implying that "Goofy" was merely a nickname. In Goofy Gymnastics (1949) he fills out a coupon with the name James Boyd.[1] Sources from the Goof Troop continuity give the character's full name as Goofy Goof, or G. G. Goof, likely a reference to the 1950s name. In many other sources, both animated and comics, the surname Goof continues to be used. In other 2000s-era comics the character's full name has occasionally been given as Goofus D. Dawg.

We were at a character breakfast. Minnie came to the table and I put my arm around her. I accidentally grabbed her butt in the process. The look on my face when they took the pic was amusing DS asked me why did I look so scared, was I afraid of Minnie.
