Love your exclusive meet & greet with Chip & Dale. Those two are among my favorite Disney characters. They were my favorites when I was a little girl. I prefer the Disney characters that are sassy.
Kadence and are just laughing along with your Chip & Dale experience! Such sassy boys. I'm glad they interact with everyone. That's just what makes Disney so magical.
Great pictures as always.
Was the area dangerous? I'd be a bit Leary hanging around an area with a military presence.
Love your chip and dale meet and greet sounds so cool
Love the Chip and Dale Meet pics! They are so cute and fun!
Boots were on sale there this week (at least Monday) - they were all 50% off. Go back! Go back!
Love the Mickey & CD meets! Those are my faves too! And how nice they were sporty and tropical to match you!
They are so fun. I think they are probably one of the best characters to meet because they have so much fun.
They are so much fun. Claire loves to meet them now too.
Mexico is not really a safe country right now, but some parts are better than others. This one just seemed more scary to me.
It was a blast
They are. I always forget how fun they are till we see them. We usually have good luck with them and interaction.
LOL....I should. I was in town yesterday too, right near the mall. UGH
After leaving the room, I decided to go straight up to the top to find Lisa. That put me on the floor that Palo is on, so I took a few pictures as I walked by.
And back outside to search for Lisa
I looked for what seemed like a long time. I just couldnt find her. I had run into Brook and some of the girls earlier and they were going ashore to Costa Maya right away, and I told them if they saw Lisa before they left, to let her know I would be back soon.
No one was in sight now. It was practically empty up top, which you would think would make it easier to find someone, but it didnt.
This guy was just chillin
.. Hey dude, have you seen Lisa?
Finally I saw her across the deck talking to Susan. Susan was staying on the ship again and had run into Lisa. Yay! I was no longer lost! LOL.
We said goodbye to Susan and we headed for a quick bite to eat before disembarking.
After our quick lunch we headed down to get off the ship. I guess we stopped off at deck 4 first, because I have more pictures from there.
And down again we went.
And off the ship. I was glad we waited to leave, because we didnt really have a line to get off the ship then.
Looking up at the ship, our balcony is the one right next to the porthole balcony.
Isnt he cute?
Even if I sound like a broken record ...... I LOVE all your pics! Glad you found Lisa in the end.
I felt like a lost child. LOL. I knew I would have to find her eventually. I think we were both walking circles looking for each other.
I know exactly how you feel with losing your friends on the boat! We traveled in a group of 19 in June and it was so hard to find people. We had a port stop in Key West so we could at least use our cell phones that day. It wasn't even a big ship like the disney ships, it was the Carnival Destiny (horrid ship btw).
I am sad to hear that Disney won't be making many trips to Costa Maya. This was my favorite stop from my cruise last January. I enjoyed sitting on the beach and having the Senor Frogs boys attending to us. I also liked the pool over at Senor Frogs.
I don't swim much or drink much, so for me, it was my least favorite. I should've just spent the money and did an excursion.
We did an excursion to the Mayan ruins at Chacchoben and it was absolutely amazing. I would not hesitate to do this again if we ever make it back to Costa Maya.
Love the pictures!!!
I love the Mickey & Chip and Dale sightings! How much fun is that!?!?! And I love that they knew your daughter would be jealous and were "shocked" you didn't bring her!
Funny that you were so confused by the "lost" pictures! I probably would have lost my mind as well!
Yes! That is the one I heard was so good.
They were so much fun. I wish I could go see them today!
Well I was alllllllllllllll the way back on page 35 on you 11/30 installment! I don't think I kept up with any of my subscribed threads in December at all. I spent this evening catching up on this one.
It looks like you girls had fun on your snorkeling adventure!
Sorry to hear about your Mickey Bar disaster. I would have been devastated too
I think if I ever go on a cruise I will set my alarm for 5:00am just so I can walk around the ship by myself and get all the good pictures. I would love to have the whole ship to myself!
What a great experience you had with Chip and Dale. Are the characters always up and roaming around that early? All the more reason to get up early.
Thats OK. I have had a heck of a time keep up with subscribed threads too. Skip has his hip replacement tomorrow, so I wil lget more behind. I plan to bring my kindle along and hope for wifi. Then I can get some reading done. Another thought is to bring my laptop and try to edit pictures on it. janet coined the phrase "craptop" and that is exactly what my laptop is, so I am not sure if that will work or not, but it will help pass time if it does.
I love the early mornings. I have never seen characters roaming before early, that was a first and last time for me, so far..... but it could be normal. I sure am glad to have had such a special moment..well a couple of them.
On our way to Costa Maya!
The pier to the plaza is kind of long. They do have a trolley going back and forth, but we chose to walk.
A look back
We thought this was kind of funny. A lot of people cant read, because many stepped across the red line!
And there is the Trolley leaving pretty darn full.
I thought this looked so pretty.
As you can see it was a bit windy today and cloudy. But it was still warm out.
We finally made it to the plaza!
Immediately we had vendors asking us to come in their shops. This can be annoying as you tell them maybe later, etc., but they really pressure you. Do they really think you will buy something if they harass you?
We had to stop and get a quick picture.
Yay! I was happy to see that they did sell lots of touristy junk though.
Lisa was on the lookout for a dress, but she never did find one she liked enough to buy.
This sign totally cracked us up.
I thought this was so cute, especially since we live on a dairy farm, but getting it home wouldnt be easy and honestly, what the heck would I do with it?
We kept browsing, looking at all the “junk” for sale.
I found this top, and I really liked it. Lisa took a picture of me wearing it, so I could see how it looked. Well it doesn’t look good with shorts! The price was too high too.
I tried to haggle, but they wouldn’t go down enough. I told them I would think about it. I ended up getting a top like it in pink a little later, only mine was a tank top version. The guy haggled with me and I set my price and kept saying no to his. He finally agreed, and then he said he wanted a tip for lunch too. Here’s my tip, don’t drink the water in Mexico! LOL. Seriously, I was not paying a dime more than the price I said, and he seemed kind of irked about it, but I got that dang thing, didn’t I?
We went out exploring some more.
We looked at a lot of these dresses, but the price was never right for Lisa and she didn’t find a style she was in love with.
There was this huge pool here in the plaza and it was free to use. Lots of families did use it too.
We decided we each needed another picture.
I brought my kindle off with me, as I heard at one time they had free wifi here. No such luck. I gave it a try, but couldn’t find a network that wasn’t password protected.
These chairs totally “cracked” me up.
Our beautiful ship in the distance.
And more shopping.
And look who we ran into.
Brook said they had taken a taxi in through town. She said I was just ok, neat to see, but nothing great.
A little fun area for sprinkler running.
It did start to sprinkle at one time, so we stayed in a few stores till it stopped. We also noticed a few stores were closed. Later we found out that it was some sort of Holiday and the “big” stores (like the jewelers) were closed because of it.
They had a dolphin swim area.
We checked it out a little later and it was very small. If I was going to do a dolphin swim, it wouldn’t be here.
More roaming around.
This was a ceiling in one of the restaurants.
