Then for some heartier food items. Mom had a veggie burger and fries.



And I had a salad and a slice of thin pizza






After our very delicious lunch we headed down to the movie. Bears was simply fantastic, very well done. This is the hallway just outside the theater.




Then we decided a walk around the Promenade was in order.

































This mom loves posing




There was a guy who passed us at least four times while we were walking quite slowly. We were not up to more than one lap…

Back inside to the glorious airconditioning.

I'm just curious I guess as I love sitting on the balcony in our rooms at WDW & either read, take in view or people watch. You are right, I'm sure that no balcony forces you out to explore! The chairs on that sun deck look so relaxing, I'd give just about anything to be sitting there right now to relax & decompress! I'm in dire need of a vacation!

Oh how I love Cabanas! The atmosphere and food is just the best. It's the best hobbits second and third breakfast lol. Love the donuts! Cove Cafe lovely.

How nice to walk around the promenade. I seem to get my timings wrong with that! Always blocked off men in white uniforms painting or washing things! Have to cut through the ship oh my those doors inside are heavy!

Lovely to catch a movie. Love that theatre. Yummy lunch how nice they do vege burger. Does Mom ever read your TR?

Glad you got the vegetarian dinner all confirmed. I just know its going to be wonderful and I can't stand the suspense.

So how was that veggie burger? I actually like veggie burgers but there seems to be such variability in what's actually IN a veggie burger that it always makes me nervous to order one.

Glorious weather!

If you love sitting out on the balcony then I would get a verandah cabin.

When is your next vacation? Do you have anything planned?

They always seem to be working don't they! They thwarted some plans later in the cruise.

She doesn't but I think I'll show her this one. She hasn't seen any of my pictures from this trip. And the commentary will help her remember what we did.

Mom says these veggie burgers are very delicious. She gets them several times each cruise. They also have them at the Serenity Bay BBQ but you have to ask for them. It's not just a protein patty, it has lots of veggies in it.

Nope we haven't called yet Everytime we get ready to sit down and look at dates, something comes up. Hopefully we can do it sometime this week as it's only going to get crazier the next month.

So funny that you mom was totally oblivious to the Remy card. And it was probably the best idea that you told her the night before so she could think about it all the next day I'm really looking forward to hearing about your experience there!

I bet you were just panicking when you couldn't find your iPad right away. Love that our moms are there to calm us in those moments. We all went to Monterey this last week and when we were heading into dinner, I couldn't find my camera. I had just used it at a park to take pics of Calvin and was starting to panic, because I needed that camera for the Aquarium the next day. DM had suggested looking in between the seats in the car (you know, that pesky gap in between the seat and the center console) and it was lodged in there

Is there a reason you didn't do Palo Brunch on this cruise?

She was really excited about it when I explained. It was an awesome experience, very special and very delicious.

She really liked being able to look forward to it all day. Yours was the first Remy experience I read, I'm excited to share I want to do it justice with all the details so it will probably be a few days.

Whew! The moms win the level headed award this time! I really was starting to panic because it wasn't in the backpack where I thought I left it. I was quick to put all the important stuff in the safe and totally forgot about the ipad.

It wasn't available I was going to check about a reservation on day 1 but mom said she was ok to miss it. I however really missed it. Not next time, no ma'm, we're going to brunch!

Ahhhh that wonderful pizza! The salad looks delicious too.

Great photos of the walking area, next cruise, we've got to do that. Need to offset the copious amounts of amazing pizza.

The ship looks huge! How much bigger is it than the little Wonder I wonder?

Cute photogenic mama. Joshua says: she looks nice like Pam-ella. Did you get the pic I sent you yesterday? Little skinny kid with the CC hat on?

Glad your dinner mates didn't mind you taking food pics. We live on those!

I can so understand your panic when you could not find your iPad. I would be lost without it.

I enjoyed all the photos from around the ship. Looks like some of the walking/ jogging trail is even tighter on the Fantasy than this is the case on the classic ships. That must be a real nightmare when runners try to pass walkers.

Hi there! Welcome

Mom and I have such a fun time together, two big kids. I hope you're able to go for your birthday

I hope I'm remembering this correctly but was it your 10th trip to WDW TR that I was reading? Did you ever finish that?
