I'm so glad I found this trip report. I've really enjoyed reading all your others. I'm waiting on the 2015 dates to be released so I can book a cruise for our family. I've been reading all the cruise trip reports and can't wait to experience it myself.

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Yay for boarding and being on your way. Thanks for all the great pictures from the kids areas. So very cool! And those bathrooms - so, so adorable!

Oh - and I love the group shot. Smart idea to arrange your meet early on.

Nothing like a special drink to toast sail away.

Dinner looks marvelous. How nice that you got to sit together as a family and have some quiet time.

The Christmas decorations are all just stunning. It must be really fun to cruise during the holidays.

Great updates!

Ah, I can feel the excitement in every single post! LOVE that you were unpacking for a week. The shorter ones just aren't long enough. I have zero advice on printers for magnets, I've given up. That and iron on transfers. Forget it.

What a fun and HUGE meet. 1000 DVC members? What is that...1/5 of the whole manifest? More?

I'd have wanted to meet Kristimc and her hubby too

I love that Santa just "happened" to give the boys coordinating shirts that they could use on the cruise

Love even more that they are finding friends right away, you are right, you can't ask for more!

That was a big meet and greet!

Great first night dinner. That souffle looks yummy!

SO.....Hi everyone- I apologize AGAIN for being MIA for so long- March was a busy, busy month. First, I was away for a week- down in WDW for my first AEP- I had a GREAT roomate, Katie, who works for the same agency I do.



We toured lots of resorts and the Disney Dream, had many great meals, and learned so much- plus met some really wonderful people- all while staying in a GORGEOUS room at the Yacht Club (plus one night at AoA). I followed it up with one last night at OKW with my BFF Lonnie, and didn't fly out until as late as possible (after 9 pm!). Here are some pics from that experience.....

Slept in beds in our adorable AoA Little Mermaid room-


First things first- La Vie en Rose Slushie JUST for F&G- oh soooooo yum!



Yummy mussles at Citricos-



Our enormous and elegant corner room at the Yacht Club-



One of our tours- we ALL drooled over the new villas at the GF- DROOLED as in PUDDLES- they are beyond beautiful, and FIVE in a studio!! WOOHOOOOO!!!!





Our excellent lunch at AoA's Landscape of Flavors- I think I had Tandoori Chicken? It was delish!



It's AoA, but it looks like Carsland in Ca to me!



Festival of Fantasy Parade- BEAUTIFUL!!!











BEST Tink EVER!! SO SUPER SAUCY!!!



















Cont'd next post....

We enjoyed some RnR time in Stormalong Bay...



Knocked off some more 1st time restaurants (for us) like Nine dragons- this was Peppery Shrimp-



Breakfast at Cape May Cafe with a GREAT group!



And the BEST BEST BEST server in the place- Dorothy-



A tour of the Dream- we were FIRST on!!!









Unfortunately, we were also first off, but it was a nice tease all the same- AND we got to see the Concierge floor- woah. Gotta figure out how to convince Pods about THAT one someday!







The CLEARLY superior Chandelier-



Remy-





The characters were EVERYWHERE we went!



Yum for lunch in Cabanas! So weird to be at this lunch....and then leave! That was the hardest thing!!





We LOVED these girls- this was pre- duck attack, lol.



This was at Illuminations, we had a special viewing area in UK and dessert.



On Friday, we all got our Diplomas from the College of Disney Knowledge-



Then Katie and I went off to celebrate with....



Seriously the best slushie in the universe!

Epcot was gorgeous with Flower and Garden going on-



We shared a Piggylicious cupcake...it was...very different, we both thought...



Then we headed over to DAK, because Katie couldn't WAIT to ride EE...lol....



And we had to see Mickey's Jammin Jungle Parade one last time before it goes away...

My BFF Lonnie was waiting for us at AKL- we were having dinner in Sanaa-



It was great as usual, the bread service with all the dips is one of my favorite things to eat on earth- but I tried the fish that is slow cooked in gravy- it was Mahi- and did not like it. Which was ok, because the rice and the Butter Chicken were still fantastic. We dropped Katie off at POFQ after our meal, ran into Jen Seib (who we also work with) and daughter Claire, messed up and forgot to take a photo! Grrrr....then went over to OKW for the night, where Lonnie and I paid a visit to the temporary Gurgling Suitcase for a Turtle Krawl (or actually for 2) then stayed up until the wee hours chatting and catching up.



The next day, we hit Epcot, and tried some lunch at Spice Road Table, the new restaurant on the water in Morocco. I encourage EVERYONE to visit this great addition to WS- our samplers were fantastic- as were our cocktails (I had a strawberry frozen drink, Lonnie had a Sparkling Sangria).



YUMMMMM...





The day flew by and we returned to OKW for my DME, but not before having dinner at Olivia's. Which was very reasonable, and quite yummy. My scallops and grits-



Afterwards, we waved goodbye to Joe, everyone's favorite bartender, who was outside in his temporary location-



A peek in at the newer, smaller GS-



Can't quite figure that one out, but, oh well....

SO...that about sums up my trip there- but......unfortunately, that is not all I did last month when I was busy. When I crawled into bed that night at home, Pods rolled over gave me a kiss, and informed me that my dear Sister in Law, Mariana, had passed away earlier in the evening- she had been battling brain cancer (she had a glio blastoma) for 20 months, and it was finally over. You may remember this sister in law of mine, because she has been in a couple of my TRs from HHI- she was married to Pods' younger brother, Steven, and their 3 boys, Daniel, Drew and Joey are adorable every single one. Mariana was the most courageous woman (I know everyone says this, but she REALLY was- when she was diagnosed with a terminal illness, she was the first one to speak in the room, and she said, "I am ok with this diagnosis- I am going to live out my days and make everyone count, and I am going to have faith in God that it will all work out the way it is supposed to. I am not afraid." She was a remarkable, incredible woman, who we all loved dearly. She had the most incredible faith in God, and she was beyond inspirational to everyone who knew her. Can't even say she will be missed, because that is not even close to how we all feel. And she truly was not afraid, her faith was that strong. Just a beautiful, beautiful person. So a few days after I got home from Fla, we flew to Ohio (Pods & I and Timmy and Tyler), along with all the brothers from NJ and Florida, to say goodbye. It was sad, but it was inspirational- she had such a great, great family in Ohio, and from elsewhere, and she was truly cherished by one and all. It was so good everyone came to gether to support my BIL, Steven, and his kids. Really, really good.

Here is a pic of Mariana and I, taken in HHI on our first visit there, when it was just our 2 families-




Thanks for reading, I will be back soon with another update from the cruise, and for replies-

Ellen

Beautiful tribute to your SIL. Continued prayers to you and your whole family during this time.

You look like you had a great time on your AEP trip. Love the picture of you and Mickey.

So what does AEP stand for anyway?

It looks like you had a marvelous trip! And nice that you learned so much!

You had me in tears with the tribute to you SIL. So glad that everyone was there for her and each other.

I am so glad, Katie- from what I saw on this cruise, many of the 18-21s were hangin together- it gives me hope Tyler will still want to cruise after June 2015 when he turns 18!

A great DIS meet! How fun is that! We had some great people we met on our trip in June, too. We connected with a family from the UK before the trip via Facebook and had such a great time; I'm going over there next year for their daughters wedding! LOVE Disney friendships.

OH!!!! So THAT is who the wedding is for! Excellent!

Oh that MENU. OMG I am salivating. I have dreams about that french onion soup there. And the souffle?! Be still my beating heart!! Is it too silly to book a cruise JUST for the souffle?!
Well, you know what I think, lol-

THEY HAVE MOËT & CHANDON ICE AT CURRENTS BAR !!!!!

Well, they technically did not have it, but they were very willing to go and get it! Definitely made sailaway even better!

You know where to find me in October
I will just be buying the bottle in the future, I think!

Your boarding pic turned out really great!

Thank you!

All the food from Cabanas looks really tasty. We didn’t do the lunch buffet on the first day this year - the DCL transportation gets you there so late! We thought it was easier to just order room service.

I have only done the bus once, and it was fine, we arrived around 1 I think? But I have heard of others getting there very, very late.

First adult beverages of the cruise! Woot!!!

I love that even the kids clubs were decorated for Christmas. You got some great pics of the clubs. I really enjoyed seeing what Vibe is like - very cool.

EVERYTHING was decorated- they really have stepped it up!

Isn’t Royal Court such a pretty restaurant? We really enjoyed it a number of times on our trip. It looks even better with Christmas decorations! Whoa! Your menu was definitely different from what they had in August - no duck confit on my menu!
I do love that restaurant, too- it is so nice. I think our menus were kind of all switched around because we had a special menu on NYE.

It will be here (and unfortunately, gone) before you know it! I hope things are sunnier for you now- today is glorious here in NJ!

OMG Ellen - you totally just made me tear up! I am so very sorry for your loss. Sometimes I swear that only the strongest people and the most special people have cancer. I don't think they instantly turn tough when they get the diagnosis. They were just tough all along and cancer makes them totally step up and take charge and respond in remarkable ways. Your sister in law sounds pretty special. Over the last 9 months (since starting my new job) I made friends with a young man (mid 30's) whose wife recently passed from gliobastoma (in September) and she was so gorgeous and vibrant its almost hard to believe she is gone.

Your work trip sounds like so much fun! I really still want to be a TA, but I've got to stick it out in my current job. Still, it looks like so much fun. Thanks for posting pictures of all your fun and your great rooms. How fun to stay at AoA, the YC, and OKW all in the same trip. Cynthia and I will be at OKW in a month!!!!! Woo hoo!

What's up with the Gurgling suitcase? I love that place? They remodeled and made it smaller! Is that even possible? Can't wait to have a Turtle Krawl (or two).

So excited about the October cruise. Denny is totally on board with the food tour of Nassau. Just tell me when to get buy the tickets! It's going to be SO. MUCH. FUN!

Sorry! I did not mean to make you sad! Hopefully you have rebooked now with the new cruises out and are feeling cheerier!

I love the PC port. The one in Miami was just boring. No real Disney touches, no Mickey pictures, and no ship models. Plus it was small. Although we had fabulous weather throughout, including perfect pool time before sail away deck party.

Our next cruise is out of Vancouver- it will be odd not sailing from that beautiful terminal in PC.

Looking at your menu I was comparing it to what I ordered on that first night!

So what did you have?

Can't wait to see how the rest pans out!
It was all fabulous- my favorite cruise ever. The Fantasy is just really alllll that!

PLEASE go see the kids areas when you board in October! You will LOVE them! They are absolutely incredible!

Oh - and I love the group shot. Smart idea to arrange your meet early on.

Mine have always been early, but they have also always been during those other events, which cuts down on attendance. But then , some people were not onboard yet. Really there is no perfect time- you just hope folks can come!

Nothing like a special drink to toast sail away.

And that is THEEEE drink to toast with, my friend....

Dinner looks marvelous. How nice that you got to sit together as a family and have some quiet time.

The most tables are for 4, I think- we have always been seated alone.

The Christmas decorations are all just stunning. It must be really fun to cruise during the holidays.

Great updates!
I was very excited about that part- looking forward to the Halloween decor too, on our Oct cruise! I have been on the Magic twice for Halloween, but this year I think they really stepped up their game fleetwide.

I just booked a 5 night- hopefully that will be better than the 4s are! I had luck printing magnets for a client this week- I took all the paper out of the tray, and did only one sheet at a time. That worked once before it all jammed up. So I did the rest for them on regular paper that I laminated and put magnetic strip on the back of. I hope they like them!

What a fun and HUGE meet. 1000 DVC members? What is that...1/5 of the whole manifest? More?

More like 1/4+ .

I'd have wanted to meet Kristimc and her hubby too

YOU WOULD LOVE THEM!!!!!!! They are up for EVERYTHING!!!!!

I love that Santa just "happened" to give the boys coordinating shirts that they could use on the cruise

Yes- Santa is very fashion foward....

Hi Mrs James! It was great meeting everyone- we really did have a fantastic time, and a lot of that was because of all the awesome peeps we were onboard with- make sure you are chatting with them now for yours- it is a great thing to always be able to say hello!
