Definitely food! Since this is my first cruise with my little one, I think we'll go right to the Magic's new and improved toddler-friendly splash area! We'll grab food and grab a lounge chair for sure! As soon as the room is ready, I'll be up there in a lightening flash to check out our extra big balcony and soak in the beginning of a magical 5 days!

We were number four boarding group so we went straight to the pool. DS was the only one in the Mickey Pool and then we moved to the Goofy pool and met the family who turned out to be on our table at dinner (and are now our pen pals). We ate lunch in Topsiders, by which time our room was ready. After dumping the wet swimwear and meeting our room host we walked the ship - managed to go to open house at the Lab, play table tennis, take tonnes of photos, and people watch in the atrium all before the muster drill.

We had a great spot on deck ten for the sail away party but we only stayed until the characters went and then went back to our room to get ready for dinner. DS loved being the first in the dining room and getting applause.

It's amazing how much you can fit in in six hours and still feel relaxed.

Lunch in whatever MDR is open at lunchtime. Then, reconfirm any reservations we have made for Palo/Remy dining, or switch bookings if we find a conflict/problem. Go to the salon/spa and make any appointments, get a Rainforest Room pass. Grab an adult beverage. Check out our cabin.

Beeline for the pool deck. Quick service for lunch and water play. We register our kids in the terminal before boarding.

We ate at cabanas, went on the aquaduct, played goofy golf and then did the sports simulator. Not sure what we will do on the wonder.

We wore our bathing suits on board then headed right to the pool & AquaDuck. No line, nobody in pool yet and had the pick of chairs. As more people started coming on the pool started getting crowded then we went to lunch then to our room to unpack.
