One of the first things that Fran noticed in the Navigator was that Brave was playing tonight. This was a movie that we had wanted to see for some time. It was playing on our last cruise, but we never seemed to find the time to go see it. We decided not to miss it this time. We made our way to the Buena Vista Theater and found it was practically empty. There were maybe six or seven other families present and the movie started promptly. As soon as the lights dimmed, we started to kick ourselves for forgetting to bring one of our boxes of snacks! The movie was cute, and both of us were in tears for most of the second half. Thankfully with Disney you can usually count on a happy ending so no one was sad when it came time for dinner. The movie finished with a little extra time before we had to be at the dining room and Fran wanted to go shopping before they sold out of all the large sizes of T-shirts. We both picked out a few shirts, she bought the “extra gifts” that you can purchase with an x amount of dollar purchase. I helped out there by purchasing a pair of earrings to match my cruise pendant. I’m not exactly sure what all we bought, but it took two of their bags to hold it all. They let me take the earrings with me, but they held the rest of the stuff until after dinner. I was a little apprehensive about taking took many pictures at dinner so you’ll excuse me if I recycle these menus from the last time. I ordered the Blue Margarita For an appetizer, I had the Island Spiced Seared Ahi Tuna Fran went with the Baked Crab Martinique She went with the Cream of Green Asparagus with Crabmeat and Asparagus Tips While I had the Parrot Cay Salad. BACON!!!!!! We decided for the “best of both worlds”, that she would get the Rib Eye and give me half and I would get the Mixed Grill and share it with her. It worked out pretty well. We ordered everything Medium Rare and only the Lamb Chop and shrimp were overcooked. The rest was cooked rather nicely. Then we were brought the dessert menu. Fran had the Crème Brulee Cheesecake I went with the Piña Colada Bread Pudding. I normally don’t like coconut, but Fran keeps reminding me that it isn’t the TASTE that I don’t like it’s the TEXTURE. So this was pretty good! Here was our serving team. Our waiter was very nice, he wanted to make everything perfect, almost to a fault. He would spend so much time telling us how perfect he wanted to make things that sometimes it took forever to get our dinner! This was also a first for us. We were seated with other couples. On our first Disney Cruise we were at a table of four. I’m not sure what was the problem with the other couple, but no matter how hard I tried to be friendly, they just wouldn’t budge. I was plenty happy we had our own table last cruise. This time, we met two of the couples this evening. The third couple had dined at Palo the first night, but our waiter assured us they would be there tomorrow. With the conclusion of our meal, we went up to the stores to pick up our merchandise. Fran still wanted to look around in the other store so I sat in Preludes and waited for her. Notice the angle of this first shot. That’s about how my head felt! I was tired from a long day, waking up early moving three VERY heavy suitcases onto the luggage cart. Schlepping our carry ons all over creation and then unloading our bags upon arrival. I just wanted to go to sleep! And when we came back to the room, we found our first towel animal. And of course the Navigator, which I had to read from cover to cover. With that we decided to call it a night. Our first sea day was ahead of us tomorrow and we had some really big plans!
