    After that drinking, we had to get a snack. I think I got a Panini at Goofys. I did not take a picture of it, and it really wasnt that great. It did fill the void, but it wasn't tasty to me. I think it was the kind I got rather than just a really bad sandwich.

    Lisa got some fruit.

    [​IMG]

    While eating, I looked over the back of the ship and took some pictures of the secret aft decks.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After our little snack we headed back to the room to get ready for the show. We also wanted to take our dose of bonine for the day.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After we were showered and dressed we headed off to the theatre. Guess who was out to greet guests?

    [​IMG]

    Sadly, I took about 8 pictures and all of them are pretty blurry.

    [​IMG]

    We found some seats and I took a look back to see if we saw the other girls, which we did not, but I did take a picture.

    [​IMG]

    The show tonight was Twiced Charm. I was excited to see it. I had heard about it for many years and never thought I would get the opportunity to see it myself. I really enjoyed it. The costumes were AMAZING! The only downfall for me was there is that they never had a real catchy tune that you wanted to sing for the rest of the night. Other than that flaw, I loved the show. Lisa loved it too. She wished we could take pictures just because she loved the costumes so much.

    After we left the show, we did some roaming. I wanted to find the door to the deck 7 secret deck.

    I think this is actually the deck 8 door here.

    [​IMG]

    Lisa was worried we would get in trouble for being back there, but I assured her we would be fine.

    We headed down to deck 7 then.

    [​IMG]

    And I opened the door and got 2 quick shots. It was a major wind tunnel when I opened that door. WOW!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then we headed back to our room again.

    LOL. I do try to capture it all. But that bathroom was really nice. I like that Disney does try to have nice looking public bathrooms on the ship.

    We got back to the room to find a new friend waiting for us!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a nice little gift for being on the Galveston Maiden Voyage.

    [​IMG]

    We then decided we needed some pictures of us dressed up. I took Lisa first. We kept laughing because she had some strange facial expressions.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And she wasn’t sure what to do with her arms.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was my turn.

    [​IMG]

    Yuck, I look too fat, make me look skinnier!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let’s have a fun expression!

    [​IMG]

    And now for sexy!

    [​IMG]

    Then we laughed at that one because my hand on the bed looks totally contorted.

    We then turned on the TV till it was time to go. They did have some awesome movies playing every day and we got to see bits and pieces of some of them. We started talking about the movies playing at the Buena Vista and which we would like to try and see.
    Lisa has always been famous for crying at Disney movies and I told her as I have gotten older, I now start to get teary eyed at them too. So I told her about Brave a bit, and I got slightly teary. Then we started talking about Toy Story 3 and I tried to tell her about the movie and the emotional part where they are all about to get burned up and I just start crying telling her it and she is getting tears in her eyes too. Then we start laughing that we can’t even talk about the movies without crying.
    So we blot our eyes and get ready for dinner.

    We start the walk to Animators Palate and we see Aurora walk by all by herself. I took a quick shot, but it’s blurry.

    [​IMG]

    Then we see Belle all by herself making her way towards us.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was amazed that they didn’t have any type of escorts. I must say though, on the ship, people don’t tend to chase the characters down like they would at the parks if they were alone. Belle went down the stairs and we kind of hung back a few minutes so she didn’t think we were stalking her.

    We made our way to Animators Palate and were directed to our seats. Mary, Julie, Erin, and Chris were already there. Brook, Carolyn, Susan, and Shelly had decided they did not feel like dressing up this night and were just going to get some fast service food and hang out.
    When we told Raphael and Luis this, they told us they would be sure to make those girls regret not coming.

    [​IMG]

    We made our orders. It was really hard to decide. There was a fish on the menu, but no one had ever heard of it and no one ended up ordering it because we just weren’t too sure how it would be.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Again, I got some terrible shots of the menu.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bread was served.
    Fig and Date Ciabatta Roll with minted yogurt dip

    [​IMG]

    The show was not going to happen tonight since it was the Prince and Princess menu. I still took a few pictures of the room.

    For an appetizer I got Roasted Roma Tomatoes and Herb Flavored Goat Cheese on mixed greens with aged balsamic vinegar dressing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This was VERY good. I could’ve had a 2nd plate.

    I also got The Beast's Potato and Sausage Casserole Soup a hearty recipe with a touch of paprika.

    [​IMG]

    Lisa got this too. From the description, we were expecting a potato soup. This was much more like a bean soup in taste and you had to really hunt to find anything that resembled a potato. Lisa is very picky and she was really surprised how much she liked it. I on the other hand didn’t care for it much, nor did many at our table. It was Ok, but not what we expected and I would not order it again.

    Then our entrées started coming out.

    Lisa got the oven baked fillet of salmon and potato. I think this one of those things on the basic every day menu.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I got the Peppercorn Crusted New York Strip.

    [​IMG]

    But Raphael also brought out a few other main course dishes to try as well.

    This is the fish. Baked Fillet of Turbot, Garlic smashed potatoes, sauteed fennel, and a light dill foam.

    [​IMG]

    This was soooooo good. Many of us wished we had ordered it. We also sampled a few other items and they were all really good. But I was kicking myself for not getting that fish.

    Soon it was time to order dessert.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Or so we thought. Raphael refused to let us order and said he was just going to bring us out something ….OK, I was worried, as I am picky with my dessert, and there was only one thing I really was eyeing on the menu.

    He ended up bringing everyone out a Sweet Temptations trio. Miniature tasting of Cinderella's Lemon Cheesecake, Chilled Chocolate Souffle and Tiramisu.

    Of those 3 items, I only liked the Chilled Chocolate Souffle.

    [​IMG]

    I really loved that, and could’ve asked for another one, but honestly, I didn’t have much room left anyways. Chris has allergies, so she was limited to what she could eat. He brought her out a full sized one and she swore she wouldn’t like it. Well she did and not only licked the plate clean but had a second one as well. LOL.

    He also brought out many other items to sample.

    Princess Jasmine Banana Bread Pudding. Brioche bread pudding, caramel sauce and toasted macadamia nuts.

    [​IMG]

    I have never had bread pudding before, so this was new to me. I actually liked it. Not my favorite thing, but it was still pretty darn good.

    He also brought out Princess Aurora Sundae.
    Rocky Road ice cream, topped with cookie crumbs, chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

    [​IMG]

    I didn’t even try this. I don’t like chocolate ice cream nor do I like rocky road.
    I don’t even know if anyone had a bite. I think we just had too many other options and we were getting pretty full.

    We had a fabulous time this evening. We really got to know Mary’s friends well this night. It was again like we had been old friends for a long time. We sat and talked and I think it was actually close to 10 when we left the dining room.
    I was pretty tired today. I think we just pretty much chilled out in the room and went to bed.

    I guess I needed another picture of the lamp.

    [​IMG]

    I think we both went out pretty fast this night.

    Love your posts!

    I think I'm inspired to write my own trip report, this time! Any pointers on how to remember it all?

    Love looking at all the desserts!

    Was there a selection of sugar free desserts, and did you try any? My mom is diabetic.

    Thanks:yay:

    Look at you two all dressed up like princesses on their way to dinner. Ya'll look beautiful...contorted hand and all. ;) For the record, you aren't the only one who tears up over a good Disney movie. I cry during just about every one I've ever seen.

    I'm not completely caught up and I don't think I will even try today because I am at work with no pictures.

    However, your server sounds look a hoot and your meal at Animator's Palate sounds really amazing. I also think the champagne meet and greet sounds like a blast. What a wonderful cruise.

    Can't wait until I can finally see your pictures.

    Thanks!!! :thumbsup2

    I am getting behind again too. I have a lot to do in just a few days now. Things are chaotic at home here too. It will be good to be gone.

    Try to take some notes each day, though I have failed the last two trips with keeping up with that. Also, if you take nough pictures, you can pretty much remember how the day went by looking at the pictures.
    But try to write down memorable things each day. I wish I would've done at least that, as now I don't remember what happened each day.

    There is, but I don't think I had any. I could be wrong though.

    We were all perdy!!!
    That dress I wore may come up in our next cruise,....because it's my Moms and she said she might bring it. Not sure if she will or not, but I did really like it.

    Thanks. Stay safe. We are supposed to get some wind tonight. I spent the morning trying to take care of the yard and anything of value or heft that might blow away or damage a house.

    Take your time. I will probably slow WAY down this week as the time is clicking and I have so much to do. In fact I am doing an online class right now I need to finish, but it's long and I just had to take a break. :rotfl2:
    You will have 2 weeks to catch up at least once I leave before I will be posting updates again.

    You are going to have so much fun. Be sure to ask for the Alice and Wonderland tea party tickets right away on your first day. They offer it a coupld of different days. I really wished we would've gone.

    Sept. 24, 2012, Day 4

    Navigators of the day.

    Today we woke up and decided we would do a load of laundry. Between the 2 of us we had a few items we wanted to wash and as sweaty as we had been over the past few days, it might be nice to have some extra back up clothing.

    [​IMG]

    While we gathered our things I took a few pictures around the room again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We liked to track where we were at each day.

    [​IMG]

    We got our load started and headed up for a quick something to eat. We had a character breakfast today, but our rumbling stomachs were not going to make it till then.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We chatted and enjoyed the view once again. We then went back down to put the laundry in the dryer.

    [​IMG]

    It was soon time to head to our character breakfast, something I did NOT want to miss.

    I thought the menus were cute.

    [​IMG]

    Brook, Carolyn and gang were there, but Mary and her gang did not show up. I don’t think we ever asked them why.

    We weren’t seated too long and the characters had already arrived.

    [​IMG]

    And Chip made a mad dash right for our table.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was a fast devil, but we all managed to get pictures with him.

    Your dress is absolutely gorgeous. I love that there are often characters just walking around. On our last cruise, I caught Stitch "re-organizing" the gallery and on our Panama Canal cruise in 2011, I met Pluto in the gym joining an exercise class and then later chilling out in the Rainforest Room.

    I think you look beautiful, the dress compliments you very much,( and your hair!)

    Print out a copy of your sexy pose and leave it behind for Skip, maybe he'll miss you and be a wonderfully happy person when you get back.

    So much good food! I could lick the screen right now.
