Some might not understand the concept of adults singing Disney songs and swimming in mermaid costumes either. I always wonder why the people who are in the 'that could never happen, that's not real category' like Disney, because nothing is real about Disney! That's WHAT I like about it!

I also give the characters credit. They aren't models, they are actresses. They stay in character the entire time, and they don't just sign stuff, they interact with you. We enjoyed our time with Princess Tiana (a lovely complete class act), and when we told Ariel that we were real life mermaids too on the island that day, without missing a beat, she asked "and what color mermaids were you?"

I love those gals. They are living my dream. I believe it's not easy and seeing them all over the ship or park IS thrilling, whether I'm 13 or 31!

I whistle Disney tunes at the mall...I wear Disney shirts. I make a bee line to the Disney Store whenever I see it.

I'm a 43 year old grown man...and I'm proud to be a kid still!

Couldn't agree more!!! I'm 30 and was thrilled to have the characters sign my canvas for me!!! It made an awesome souvenir, along with the picture frame and ship ornament that we had the captain sign!!

Guess my confession is being a chair hog, lol. We left items on the chairs while we went and ate lunch at CC. Now, I will say the adults only beach was not near as crowded as the family beach and most everyone was leaving their items on the chairs, oh and taking chairs into the water. I would be slightly perturbed if I came back to my chair and someone was there, just because I wouldn't do that to someone else.

I've been reading the last few pages of this thread and it seems we all have different ideas about what "chair hogging" means. I have always thought that "chair hogging" was when you got up super early and went and put your things on chairs that you had no intention of using for hours or went to the pool and put your things in a chair and then took off to lunch or a tasting, or something similar. You get the idea. I would never consider myself a "chair hogger" but the way some of you are describing it then I guess I am.

We do not put our things in chairs on the pool deck and then leave and go have lunch or partake in some other activity BUT we did/do leave them in/under a chair to get in the pool or hot tub. We do leave our flip flops, cover up, backpack and towel in a chair on CC to swim and snorkel BUT we did/do not leave our things to go have lunch or ride bikes or parasail, etc.

My DH loved this one, haha. When we were at Serenity Bay he kept trying to get me to take some tiny shells and I kept telling him "no, that's not allowed", lol.

You can buy the tails! I'm upgrading to a brighter tail color before my next CC visit in May. Oddly I don't have any photos AT CC altho we did "snorkel" as usual in our tails. I did hand make my shell top tho. Big project and I am happy with how it turned out.

Probably the only example of being able to say "I love your tails" without it being inappropriate.
