Is there any better place to live than Mickey's backyard?

You're not supposed to bring alcohol onto Castaway Cay? What else do they think we're gonna drink in our cabana?!

Sorry, this bugs me. The cabanas are expensive and highly sought after. I know this thread is all in good fun but I kinda feel like this is not right.

Nope! If you bring alcohol onto the ship, you are only suppose to consume it within your stateroom and not in public areas.
However, about the cabana... I guess that would be considered private?

Running!

I'm not quite through reading all of these yet, but here's my confession. We like the front of deck 5 on the Magic/Wonder. We usually come up the middle stairs and there is this big wide hallway used as the emergency exit for the theater that's usually deserted that takes us toward our room. Our kids (now 7 and 4) LOVE to run to the end of it, and I let 'em. It's one of the greatest memories from our cruises. There, I said it, and I feel better.

plates

So now we have been on our first DC, I have to say.... we have a small collection of plates from the buffet and quick service windows. Small plates, large plates and a kids plate. We use them all the time! Just loved the designs
(...and a silver paintbrush looking butter knife )

Add me to the list of not Pirate Night fans. We did go up on deck to see the fireworks as our previous 2 cruises were to Alaska.

This doesn't bug me in particular especially if the cabana was unreserved. I think the bigger question or rather mystery is how in the world did a cabana go unreserved on Castaway Cay? That's impossible......mind=blown.

Our server went on and on about how many hours he works (he didn't realize he was talking to a couple of tax accountants and this was right after tax season, we put in multiple 100 hour weeks). We felt bad that we might be causing him more work. The other thing was the dress code, I understood that men needed to have a jacket on there, I was one of only a few that actually had one on, I was suprised. We were on the WBPC Cruise, we had supper and brunch at Palo. We actually ate at Palo on the exact day of our 25th wedding anniversary, and we were both disappointed that they did absolutely nothing for our big day, nothing, I mentioned it to them when we sat down. Everyone goes on and on about Palo, I know we won't do it again.

We went to Palo on the exact night of our anniversary also and they did nothing foe us either. We were less than impressed. We haven't gone back for supper since. We've gone to brunch and have had great service and meals.

Remy did special stuff for our anniversary. The dessert had Happy Anniversary written on the plate, and they acknowledged at the very beginning that it was our anniversary. There's a chance the concierge hosts may have called ahead, though. I do know that they called Remy after they got notice of a medical stop in the Turks & Caicos. I had been having very bad anxiety issues, the symptoms of which tend to manifest themselves in ways that resemble heart attack signs, so they wanted to make sure that it wasn't me. They told me one of them would have accompanied me to the tender if it had been.

Palo didn't require a jacket when we went. Just a collared shirt and pants. Remy required the jacket.

I don't line the Chocolate Souffle either. Actually I didn't know what to do with it.
(venting time) Actually that time we went to supper was on the night of our Anniversary. We had told them about it. We were kind of stuck in a secluded table in a corner (not a good secluded). I order rack of lamb which I didn't know how to eat. We were quite ignored by our server except for getting our orders and delivering our food. When I got the soufflé I had no idea what to do with the cream and chocolate sauce. (vent over) I feel so much better.

Also on that cruise we had brunch at Palo's and felt quite rushed. I had received my hot item right after I sat down with my cold buffet items. On our next cruise, we took control of when we got our items and it was so much better. They treated us the way we felt the service should be.

My confession is on our first cruise on the Wonder, we took the hard back book that was in the room, home with us. It is a great book with loads of Disney Cruise information in it. When my husband saw it, he immediately said, "did you steal that?" I thought it was something I could take home..yikes..

I embarrass my family taking pictures of the public bathrooms. BTW, once we had a room near the stairs to the theater so I would just run down to the "spare" bathroom.
Also, I only go to the fitness area to use the showers in the locker room. I actually feel guilty when I walk in without workout clothes. (they are so much nicer!)
I saw a youtube video of the game where you get into teams and do funny stuff so I was prepared to give DH an item of my clothing.
Lastly, we have a veranda cabin for our next cruise...
