    With regards to the Pirates cruise - did the boat look like a pirate ship or was it a typical boat?

    Well I am gifted in that area, but as DH commented -- there's a way to look and not be so obvious/gross about it -- and he was both and it was highly inappropriate.

    Great news and we can't wait for more live updates!

    You just made my day:blush:. This was lots of fun to put together and even more fun now that it's up and helping people.

    There has got to be something you'd like to chat about - it's ok if it's already in the thread:goodvibes. Oh, what ADRs are you booking? You have to do CA Grill!

    Thanks for posting your review and reporting that you didn't hear any noise since many ask about that. It's great having a P&P Cruise review, too. Did you book a BB?
    :thumbsup2

    I wouldn't worry about it, but you know your child's curiosity and dexterity level best.

    We didn't book a BB--so tempting but don't think we'll be back for a few more years. We want to go back to the Bahamas first, then give Universal/Sea World a try, then DH has been itching to go back "home" to Ireland and by then DD should be almost 10 and ready for more than just MK. :)

    Hi Annie. I'm sure it will all be great. The lake view is beautiful. I would just use caution if you get a high floor. Our DS pulled furniture over to open balcony. Luckily I reached him before his full plan came to play out. He was starting to drag the chair over to look down. Took a few years off my life but learned to never leave him alone for a second. I'm not a huge fan of heights so a lower floor is ok for me. However, as I said earlier, the views were just beautiful. Enjoy!

    Great pics. Love the view of fireworks from the boat. Was it loud from the boat? DS4 does not like loud fireworks but likes to see them. At 4th of July he watches from inside our house if that gives you any idea.

    Our daughter HATES fireworks. She just held her hands over her ears when she felt it was too loud...we were surprised how mesmorized she was by them as they pipe in the "story" and she was in awe. I'm sure your son will do great!! :)

    ErinsMommy: Thank you for posting all those fun photos! I love your cake's sentiment - hilarious and delicious:thumbsup2


    It sounds like you really have your hands full and vacations have special challenges for you. You probably need your own vacation after vacation:hug:

    You're very sweet. Dh and I are fortunate to also have two older children ages 16 and soon to be 15 who are very helpful. I'm really looking forward to April, we all need a break ;)

    Thanks for all the great pictures. We've never done a pirate's cruise, but it looked really fun. Wishes is always great, and that cake looked good as well. My youngest dd used to put her hands in her ears as well during fireworks as well. She finally stopped around age 7, but occasionally still brings them close to her head. Sorry you had a bad experience at CR check in. We've had some CMs on the spot with great service, some average, and an occasional dud.

    My son was in his teens before he started liking fireworks. Before that we needed to be as far away as possible, preferably for him indoors.

    Checked in yesterday at CR ...what a fiasco outside when I asked the valet where the Atrium level checkin was and they said go to the front desk inside. No sign...nothing... so I asked two employees and they said let me check. Really ??? Shouldn't all employees know where the atrium and tower level guests checkin ? FINALLY the one and only employee who works Atrium escorted us up to the 12th floor apologizing profusely. We got a room right at the end of the 12th... GREAT view of MK. We have found the atrium level concierge wonderful and very helpful. Room refurb looks nice smells like new carpet...carpet looks like a dark green. Will try and post pics after our half marathon on Sunday. Looks like they are working a couple floors down on refurb.

    Contempoexperts: Does Atrium Level make sense if we're planning on getting the Premium Dining plan? Would we not be better off simply reserving a Tower MK view room, non-Atrium Level if we don't care about the free Kahlua in the evenings? Or is getting breakfast at the CR simply craziness whereas the Lounge may be a relative respite? I just picture the lounge potentially overrun and nothing but canteloupe rinds left if good heavens one should sleep in past 6:45am. Thank you for your help. PS first post! :)
