    Thanks everyone about the good thoughts for my girls. Should be fun. And I'm so excited. :yay:


    Last night is such a bummer Ellen. But that pub show is so funny. No matter how many times you see it. "If I were not upon the sea a card dealer I would be" Ha ha ha ha. Such fun. Love that show.

    Your kids are such adventurous eaters compared to most. I was telling Den about what they ate and that led to a nature or nuture discussion. :laughing: Pub night looked like a riot!

    I can't believe it's almost over. :sad2:

    Who are these 2 characters?

    Great update, looks like a great dinner! So sad that you are at the end of your trip, that last night dinner and the breakfast are usually so sad because you know the vacation is almost over.

    Sorry....I'm not happy it's almost over either! I'm so shocked you liked the food porn, Karin! :rotfl: You should take a few pics of your food on your upcoming trip- :idea: Maybe you could even write a little bit about what you ate...:rotfl2:

    And YES, I HATE it when your suitcases are all out in the hallway, and the crew is working so hard to get you the heck off their ship!! We always get it (we...HAHAHA, isn't that funny I said WE)....I always get that all done before dinner, because I just want to get it over with. It is the WORST, second only to that crappy breakfast the next morning!!

    Yes, the replay is almost over, but we also went to Vero & DTD after the cruise, so I'm not completely done yet!
    Glad I made you laugh, I hope you're feeling better today. :hug:

    I agree!! That show is soooo unexpected and funny from Disney! :rotfl: Thanks for refreshing my memory on one of the lines!

    Thanks, they are good eaters (Tyler is amazing, but tim does ok), I think that's because I cook, and I have always fed them a HUGE variety of foods from when they were very small. Tyler never had an issue with anything, Timmy- well, we had to lie to him and tell him everything was chicken. :rotfl:

    Good thing Drea knew, because I had no idea who those characters were!

    And yes, those last two meals are sooo sad, it is even worse than usual I think, because it's not just that the vacation is over, but that the luxury of the cruise is over, and as soon as you step off the ship, it's slam back to harsh :sad2:reality!

    It was very refreshing, I really want to try the blood orange one next time, although I don't think there is one on the menu I wouldn't like.

    Once again, we were awakened in the near-dark by the "No, DADDY!" alarm next door. Well, at least that was something to look forward to about getting off the ship. Because, truly, there was NOTHING else. Thankfully, we had had the late dinner seating on the cruise, which meant that this last morning we had the luxury of an 8am breakfast. But, we were still positively exhausted. We took our showers, packed up the last of our things, and stepped out of our cabin.

    At the same time as the people in the cabin next to us.

    You know....THE people. The "NO! DADDY!" people.

    And all four of us...were in shock.

    We couldn't speak.

    We could only stare open mouthed at the family of four, a mom, a dad (REALLY!), a 6 or 7 year old son, and this-

    [​IMG]

    A 3 foot tall midget girl, about 3 or 4 years old, who looked EXACTLY like Boo. And her family??

    O.M.G.

    I have never seen, in my entire life, a more exhausted looking threesome.

    These people were FRIED.

    And if I could have gotten over my shock and dismay, I would have said to them....

    "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD....YOU are the parents!!! YOU are in charge!! Stop that little thing before she gets worse!!!!! One day, SHE'S GONNA MUTATE AND THEN THERE'S NO TELLING WHAT WILL HAPPEN!!!!" :scared1::scared1::scared1:

    Seriously. But I was speechless- we all were. And I even questioned, later, whether or not it was possible that that much noise could have come out of that little, itty-bitty, innocent looking girl all week long. And Timmy said, "Oh no, Mom....I heard it speak...and it was HER!" :rotfl2::lmao:

    Well, that behind us, we got on line for Lumiere's...ran into the Nenners, who were skipping breakfast, but still trying to get a photo out of Shutter's, I think...and it dawned on me it was time to say goodbye to them. :sad1: WOW. That just wasn't right, not at all! We really need to see that family again, sometime.

    A LOT

    Gonna have to work on that one, huh Jen? :thumbsup2

    It was time to be seated at Table 75 one last time...

    [​IMG]

    Even 8 am was a little too early for some people....

    [​IMG]

    We all ordered, and Timmy requested scrambled eggs with cheese. It is not on the menu. But it IS how Timmy likes them. And we all tried to explain to him that they couldn't really do that. But Mickey said she would try, bless her. And this is what Timmy got Route 66
    Scrambled eggs, bacon, grilled sausage, grilled ham, and hash browns

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl: I found it very funny. Timmy...not so much. Oh well. Tyler ordered For a Sweet Journey
    Buttermilk pancakes, blueberry pancakes, whole wheat pancakes, Belgium waffles (all served with honey or breakfast syrup

    [​IMG]

    I had Eggs for the Road
    Scrambled, fried or boiled and served with hash browns and your choice of breakfast meat (grilled sausage, grilled ham or bacon)

    [​IMG]

    I have no idea what Pods ate, but it must have been the same as someone else, because I have no more pics of the food, although I know we also had some pastries and some fruit. Looks like I just GAVE UP.

    Crappiest breakfast EVER. The food is mediocre, but the vibe of the entire room is just CRAP! EVERYONE is MISERABLE! UGH. They should just quit this and hand everyone an egg sandwich at customs. Or maybe a great big ol' donut. With sprinkles. It would be MUCH easier to cope with. Anyway, we hugged our servers goodbye, wished them a happy blue-sky-filled life, and realized, it was time.

    The DCL fat lady has sung.

    [​IMG]

    We got stuck in a bottle neck, trying to get out, though. Apparently Customs likes to mess with us sometimes, and they were letting a few chosen participants get through at a time. WTH? It was pretty crunchy in that gangway, a little too much like a Who concert, if ya ask me.

    Although, when we finally DID get though and out, it, in a way, made us happy to be off the ship. So I guess there's THAT.;)

    We hooked up with a porter, who escorted us and our 99 pieces of luggage to the Budget shuttle line, and we waited...and waited....and waited....did I mention how cold it was?? It was freakin COLD, people!! And FINALLY got on the shuttle, got our car, and drove to Disney's Vero Beach Resort. Stay tuned for the rest of the trip, there's still a day and a half of fun to go!!

    And the mystery will finally be revealed...where in the world is Ellen's computer?:confused3

    Seriously, it is the worst breakfast ever. Our server (who wasn't such a great guy to begin with) treated us like we were unwelcome guests who had stayed too long at the party. Our assistant server (the nice guy) was not there. I'm not sure if he was assigned somewhere else or what, but getting juice and coffee that last morning was a challenge. And since we had early seating, caffeine was a must!

    I'm considering skipping breakfast altogether next time.

    We disembarked pretty quickly and Mike saw a teenager carrying the painted skull thingie we were not able to find in Cozumel that he had wanted to buy. I had told him then since we couldn't find it, it must not exist there. Whoops.

    We had gotten a day room at the Hyatt MCO and laid around watching movies all day until it was time for our flight.

    And now I have to stop typing, cause I'm getting sad just thinking about the fact that it is mid-February and sunshine and drinks of the day are no where in my immediate future.

    Love this! Your right. An egg sandwich on the way out would be so much better. That last breakfast is just awful. It is sad, everyone is cranky because it is so early in the morning and the food is not very good at all! Thinking I may skip it next cruise. Are there any other breakfast options that morning or do I need to bring some ziplocks and stash some stuff from room service from the day before?

    At least you weren't headed back yet. Looking forward to hearing about your last 2 days in Florida.:thumbsup2

    I'm still really enjoying your TR, even though the cruise is over. :sad2: I agree about the breakfast -- it would be so much better for them to just hand something out on our way off the ship. Good idea!:idea:

    The blood orange one is really sweet- if you like really sweet, you'll love it! I had a habanero one in November....it was REALLY hot! I tried some of someone else's first, and his wasn't so hot, so I tried one- and mine was REALLY hot!! :rotfl: Can't wait to go there again....:goodvibes

    Thank-you!! Hey- did you see they released the remainder of 2012 for the Fantasy? But what about the Magic???

    We are going to have a BLAST on that Dream!!! But first we'll have to have a blast stayin' at the BWV in less than three months! :banana: And YOU'LL have to have a blast without me on the Magic...think you can manage?:rotfl:

    I am still so sad you had that horrible server....I hope if that ever happens again to any of us, we will all go up and get ourselves moved to another table. He really sounded like the server that needs to be re-Disneyfied!

    Sorry about that skull....oops! :rotfl:

    I didn't know they had day rooms at the Hyatt, but I guess it would make sense that they do. Is your next vacation in August? Is it another Western, for skull shopping, or an eastern? :)

    I think I may skip it next time, too- unless I really, REALLY love my servers! Next time I might just head to WDW for breakfast instead. :thumbsup2 I don't know if there are other options on the ship- I am pretty certain that nothing else is available onboard. So maybe stashing some from the night before is the way to go....

    Ok...I'll call DCL later today and tell them we all agree- baggie sandwiches it is! :rotfl:

    I don't know....where oh where is my computer?? Oh where, oh where can it be?????:confused3

    SO, we had miraculously stuffed ourselves and our 99 pieces of luggage into our rental car, and were pulling into Vero in no time. Of course, I had already called the Limo driver about my computer- our plan was to meet him tomorrow at the airport to get my computer...quite frankly, I was not feeling too comfortable with this plan, but what could I do? Well....we'll have to see how it all works out, I guess. We also were going to have to meet someone from Owners Locker at the airport, to give back our locker. It just sounds like a lot of coordinating, doesn't it? Stay tuned...this part of the story isn't over yet!

    Anyway, when we arrived at Vero Beach, our room was ready right away- an ocean view inn room, which is basically a hotel room with a kitchenette. So pretty-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We had a view of the pool (with the ocean beyond)-

    [​IMG]

    This would make our third DVC stay in a row with a pool view- so weird! Never had even one ever before, and now? Nothin BUT!

    [​IMG]

    We put on our swimsuits, and headed down to the pool. It WAS chilly, but we figured we would sit in the sun and suck it up! On the lawn, they were set up for a wedding...one of two that were scheduled for that day-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hungry, (I know, how is it possible after that ROBUST meal on the ship?) we ordered some lunch from Bleachers-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Afterwards, the boys played some mini-golf (which looked really nice, it has been refurbed since our last visit)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And Pods assumed the position....

    [​IMG]

    T&T then grabbed a basketball and went to shoot some hoops with some other boys they met-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We watched them for a few, before Pods & I went back-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We walked on the beach, and checked out the infamous ledge-

    To be cont'd.....

    Honestly, we should have asked to be moved. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt though. I thought that maybe he just needed to get know us and then he would warm up. After two nights, I realized that it probably wasn't going to happen. And by then, it almost seemed too late to ask for a move. If it happens again, I am out of there!

    The August cruise is an Eastern itinerary....we wanted to go someplace different. So, no skulls for Mike!

    You can go to the buffet for breakfast in the morning rather than to your assigned restaurant, although the servers encourage you to come to breakfast with them (I think because they know they can hustle you off the ship quicker that way!) I believe it is open until 8:30. We may give that a try next time, or maybe order extra room service the day before and store the stuff for the morning.

    Did you see they released the Fantasy itineraries through the end of December 2012? I was curious to see if Jen was going to book something....I think she has a dummy booking, but I'm pretty sure she was thinking about bumping it to an October date if anything appealed. I love October, but it will be difficult to pull the kids out from school anymore after this year.

    Edited to Add: Vero Beach looks lovely! Must go there someday.
