I was telling my DD about the name of your Trip Report and she said she could totally hear it in her head too. We are definitely looking forward to hearing it again next week.

I'm really enjoying your trip report
I'm glad to hear your daughter was able to picture Jimmy's announcement in her mind. And I'm endlessly jealous that you guys will be on board the Wonder next week! Hope you enjoy adding the blanket to your collection

Indeed it is. It's currently draped on our couch, and I love looking at it several times every day.

Don't you both look nice! Sometimes it's fun to dress up for a special occasion. And you both look relaxed, so the Disney magic was obviously working on you two.

Thank you for the videos. The cabin is much bigger than I would have thought, and the scenery was perfectly peaceful. It just makes me want to go to Alaska that much more.

It WAS fun to dress up for this occasion, and we were certainly experiencing the epitome of relaxation on the cruise by this point!

I'm glad you enjoyed the videos! I took several throughout the cruise, but they're all so short, so I didn't know if they'd be worth sharing. Still, I decided to upload them on a whim, and I think it was a good choice.

Sounds like a good plan to me

I can't believe they got away with cheating!! That would have made me so mad if I was playing against them.

Sounds like you both had a wonderful evening. Too bad Cinderelly ( ) got the wrong vibe off of you. You seem pretty harmless to me.

I would have been really mad if we'd been competing against them too. Not really the Disney spirit.

And what can I say? Cinderelly and I just didn't get off on the right foot...

Love your trip report. I'm looking forward to out Caribbean trip next year but I really want to cruise to Alaska someday in the not so distant future. I can't wait to see what happens when you get off the boat.

I'm enjoying your trip report! We love the Wonder and are sailing on her again next month for our 15th anniversary. I'm trying to convince DH that we should do DCL to Alaska for our 20th!

Love following your trip report. My in-laws are taking the whole family on a DCL Alaska cruise next year. But I'm not supposed to know about it yet It's going to be a Christmas surprise! But we already got an email from the cruise line welcoming us aboard! Oh well, cat out of the bag, but I'm not telling.

Enjoying your trip report.....just got off the Wonder on Monday. Missing our serving team....I saw "our" table in one of your photos from Animator's Palate.
Alaska was the best cruise ever. Nine nights must have been amazing.
Can't wait to read more and relive our vacation.
Thanks so much for all the details and pictures.

Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying reading along. I'm sure your Caribbean cruise next year will be awesome, and I agree that you definitely need to make it up to Alaska sometime.

I'm jealous that you'll get to sail on the Wonder so soon. We're definitely having withdrawals. Hopefully you can make it to Alaska in a few years!

That's awesome that you just got back from Alaska. It feels like so long ago that we were there already even though it's just been a couple months... You'll have to see how our experiences compare to yours! Thanks for reading

Thanks so much for reading along! I'm so glad that we could plant the seed of taking an Alaska cruise into your mind. It's truly one-of-a-kind!

New Disneyland Trip Report (8/29)

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I'm rarely content without a million projects going on at once, so in addition to my life report (which will go through December 2013) and this report, I've also started writing about our first visit to Disneyland now that we're back to being tourists instead of locals. It's called No Longer Californians, but Still Annual Passholders, and you can find it here. Hope you'll enjoy reading along!
