Disney Magic to the Bahamas?? Day 7

Posted on

Our last day of vacation!  Sigh.

Day 7  October 5 Monday


We woke up and got dressed for breakfast.  But this was no ordinary breakfast!  Today we were having breakfast at O’hana at the Polynesian Resort.  Amy made all the arrangements.  We drove over (CSP’s foot wouldn’t allow us to take the boat/monorail) and sat down to wait for our reservation.  We were chatting about our drive home was going to be affected by Hurricane Joaquin and I mentioned that my friend and travel agent Lisa sent me some information about highway closures.  Just then this lady says “Excuse me, who is your travel agent?”  I said “Lisa Reese”, and she said “I work with her”!  It really is a small world after all!  'Ohana

Our buzzer went off and we were seated and breakfast was served.  Scrambled eggs, potatoes, Mickey waffles, sausage, biscuits, fruit and bacon are served family style.  Not too far into breakfast and Mickey appeared! 'Ohana Then Lilo, Pluto,'Ohana and finally….my favorite…STITCH!!!! 'Ohana I’d never met him even after all my Disney cruises! 'Ohana He signed a painting Amy & Kevin gave us and was so sweet and careful about it.  I was so excited!!!  Especially when I found out that besides the cruises ‘Ohana is the only place you can meet Stitch now!'Ohana

Once breakfast was over CSP rested in the lobby while I bought a couple things in the gift shop.  Then it was back to the room to pack, say our goodbyes and hit the road!

We left about noonish and our route was fine up until when we were supposed to take I-26 from I-95 to Columbia. 70 miles of I-95 and large parts of I-26 were closed due to flooding from Hurricane Joaquin!  CSP, being super safety conscious and conservative, wanted to drive to Atlanta then home from there- adding another 8 hours to our drive!  I said no way.  I just knew I couldn’t do it.  We were up late last night and there was no way I could drive 14-16 hours home.  So we took 95 up to just below Savannah.  Then I cut over on 16.  I pulled over onto an exit and studied the map then took 119 North through South Carolina to Columbia.  We passed through the funniest little towns on this 2 lane highway.  Norway, Denmark, Sweden, etc!  They all were really just wide spots in the road but they all had a Dollar General!

Once we were on 77 North I felt better, but then that’s when we saw evidence of the flooding.  There were exits closed where the entire interchange was under water.  Spooky.  And then we needed gas.  I tried exit after exit but all the gas stations, restaurants etc. were closed.  So creepy!  We finally found a gas station about 40 miles north of Columbia.  We filled up there and made it home by 11 pm!  Only 2 hours longer than normal!  The pugs were so excited to see us!  And we were thrilled to see them too.  Too bad they don’t allow pugs on the Disney cruise ships!

Disney Magic to the Bahamas?? Day 6

Posted on

Day 6 Sunday October 4


We woke up at 6am to dress and pack last minute things and we were out in the lobby about 7 am.  We decided to skip breakfast on the ship (it’s not the buffet, it’s a sit down and ours wouldn’t have been until 9 ish) so we handled our own luggage and walked off the ship about 7:30 am.  We got in our cars and CSP & I followed Amy & Kevin as we tried to make our way out of Miami.

We made a turn and there was a rail road crossing with the lights going and the bars down.  So we waited.  And waited. No train. Then a taxi behind me started honking its horn.  What was I to do?  I was trapped!  All the sudden this guy got out of his van.  His friend drove the van through the bars.  Van Dude then calmly walked over to a tree and ripped off a branch.  He walked back to the rail road crossing bar and held it up over his head with the branch, all the while EATING A SANDWICH.  That must have been one good sandwich!  It was hilarious!  But we got through!  And on the road to Orlando.

Florida has a million toll roads and turnpikes and it cost us $20 to drive from Miami to Orlando.  Yikes!  Luckily they also have these travel plazas in the middle of the highway so you can access it from both directions.  You can get gas and food.  We stopped at one about an hour outside of Miami and got bagels and gas then made our way to Orlando.


We made it to Walt Disney World and the Wilderness Lodge! MNSSHP It’s so nice!  We were staying in one of the 2 bedroom villas there.  The lobby was just gorgeous!  We checked in then went to our villa and got settled in and took a wee nap. MNSSHP CSP got about 45 minutes in but I only got about 20.

We woke up and freshened up and got dressed for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! IMG_0141 Amy had matching orange shirts made for all 4 of us with our names on them.  CSP won’t wear anything with his real name on it so his says CSP!  Ha! MNSSHP Amy had LED light up necklaces for us all (here’s my get up) MNSSHP and for us girls she had tiny witches hat headbands. MNSSHP So cute!  Please disregard the deranged look on my face!  I was excited!

We took a boat over to the Magic Kingdom MNSSHP and got checked in just in time for our dinner reservations at Tony’s (the Lady and the Tramp restaurant).  We were all hungry as that breakfast stop was a long time ago!   We had a great dinner then took the train over MNSSHP to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  CSP & I haven’t been to the parks since 1999 so we were thrilled to get to ride some rides.  And God bless Amy because she got us fast passes so we wouldn’t have to wait in line.  Just standing on CSP’s foot is harder than actually walking.  Getting on and off rides proved challenging with his big boot.  But the staff was great and very accommodating.  For instance on the Haunted Mansion you have to hop into your Doom Buggy from a moving walkway.  Well they slowed it down for us so CSP could get in and out without killing himself.  We rode Pirates of the Caribbean and even It’s a Small World. MNSSHP

The weather was perfect!  It started out cloudy, then it drizzled, then the temperature dropped to nice and cool and the drizzle stopped.  It was awesome! MNSSHP

The Magic Kingdom was all decked out for Halloween! MNSSHP It looked so cool all lit up at night!

Before we went on this trip I polled all my Facebook friends about whether or not I should take my big DSLR camera or just my iPhone.  Thankfully I was convinced to just take my phone.  I got great pictures and didn’t have to worry about lugging around a big camera!  It helped that just a couple days before we left I was able to get the iPhone 6S which has a 12 megapixel camera.  I was pretty impressed with its performance!

After riding our rides it was time for the parade.  Amy got us the Happy Hallowishes Dessert Premium Package.  So at 8 pm we went to the Town Square and had preferred viewing areas all roped off for the parade.MNSSHP  Prime spots! MNSSHP The parade was awesome! MNSSHP I know this pic is blurry but it is of the Gravediggers, who were so great and I kind of know one of them because he’s my friend Leah’s brother! MNSSHP Baloo the Bear came over and kissed my hand and another character (I can’t believe I can’t remember which one!!!) high fived me!  MNSSHP MNSSHP MNSSHPWe even got to see the Headless Horseman on a gorgeous, giant black horse. MNSSHP

After the parade we were led through a back stage area over to the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant MNSSHP for a dessert party.  There was a lovely dessert buffet with Halloween themed desserts.  IMG_0123 So tasty!  Then at 10 the Hallowishes fireworks show MNSSHP began and we had perfect seats for it. MNSSHP Once the fireworks show was over we made our way back over to the front of Cinderella’s castle for the Sanderson Sister’s Show. MNSSHP It was super cute!  By now poor CSP was really hurting.  And silly boy wore a short sock under his boot thinking it would be cooler.  Well instead of being cool it allowed his boot to rub his leg raw!  So we decided to call it a night and headed back to the docks to take the boat back to the Wilderness Lodge.

When we got back to our villa there was a big Halloween sign on our door.  We opened the door and found the entire common room had been decorated!  There was a flickering candelabra, spiderwebs everywhere, luminaries all over, candy, and of course a huge Mickey Mouse on the coffee table!  It was SO cool!  And I totally forgot to take pictures of it all!  I was so tired from our long, but amazing day, and I was just in awe of it and so surprised!

We enjoyed the decorations for a little while then went to bed.  We had to be up early in the morning!

Disney Magic Western Caribbean Day 8- Heading home

Posted on

We woke up at 6 to be in the main lobby at 7.  We carried our own luggage off the ship and if you do that you can walk right off at 7am!  No waiting in line at customs!  We breezed right through and were in the packed car by 7:20!!!  That means we skipped breakfast on the ship but  we just grabbed a bagel a little ways down the road.

Before I wrap up this trip report I have to tell you about Disney’s new cruise line app.  It’s awesome! I think CSP loved it even more than I did!  I took some screen shots on the last day so you could see what it covers.  It works via Disney’s wi-fi so it doesn’t cost you anything and you can have your phone in airplane mode while using it.  We used it every single day, multiple times a day.

The welcome page: IMG_6428

Page 2: IMG_6429  You can see all activities based on age group.  Then touch the activity and it gives you a detailed description, plus the location and times. And when you find something you want to remember to attend, just press the heart and a reminder will pop up on your phone 15 minutes before the activity starts!

Page 3: IMG_6430  Every day would be a different article.

Page 4: IMG_6431  You can find out when your favorite character would be appearing.

Page 5: IMG_6432 The menus.  This was CSP’s favorite part.  He liked being able to plan his meals ahead of time.  You could see what they were eating in Palo and all the other restaurants.

Page 6: IMG_6433

Page 7: IMG_6434

Page 8: IMG_6435

Main Menu: IMG_6436 LOVED the deck plans.  Really cuts down on getting lost. This app really has everything you need in it!

We made good time going home and arrived just before 5 pm.  CSP’s parents took us out to dinner and we gave them their cruise surprises.  But first we loaded up on pug kisses!  This was an amazing cruise and we had the best time!!!  Can’t wait for the next one!

Disney Magic Western Caribbean Day 7- Castaway Cay!

Posted on

Today was Castaway Cay day! DSC_0199 We were docked from 9:30am – 4:45pm.  Castaway Cay is Disney’s private island.  It’s amazing! IMG_6416 We got up early and had breakfast at Cabanas then headed down to the gangway.  Just outside the ship we bought Kyle, CSP’s new cooler.  He named it.  Kyle. IMG_6415 That boy cracks me up!  Kyle came with a 6 pack of water.  After we picked up Kyle we hopped on the tram to Serenity Bay, the adults only beach.  We found some chairs in the shade of an umbrella and had a wonderful morning! IMG_6419 We read and swam and CSP was even able to snag a hammock!  He promptly fell asleep in said hammock and I’d have to wake him up periodically when the snores got too loud!   It was a perfect, beautiful day.  Sunny but not too hot.  The water was pretty cold and a little choppy but you got used to it.  There were all these little birds running around between our chairs.  So teeny! IMG_6420  Our morning view:   IMG_6417 NOT TOO SHABBY for February!

At about 1:30 we had lunch on the island at the barbecue hut they have set up.  They have all sorts of salads to choose from as well as mahi mahi, brats, burgers, etc.  Even ice cream!  After lunch we took the tram to Pelican Point at the family beach. Our friends the McC’s had a cabana and invited us to come visit.  They dropped our wristbands off at dinner last night. I checked in at the Cabana station and told them we were looking for cabana #7.  They called us a golf cart taxi and drove us to the cabana!  Nice!
We spent the rest of the day with the McC’s hanging on the beach and in their cabana. IMG_6422 Man, that’s the way to live! IMG_6423 The cabana was SO niceIMG_6427 and came with so many amenities! IMG_6424 Drinks, fruit, sunscreen, towels, a safe, lounge furniture, a hammock (CSP jumped right in),IMG_6426 a changing room, outdoor shower, foot wash, use of floats and inner tubes, the works! IMG_6425 A & I took chairs down to the water, stuck our feet in the ocean and chatted while CSP waded out in the ocean with the McC kids.  Those kids took to him like fish to water and he was so good with them.  We stayed until the last possible moment then it was time to pack up and head back to the ship.  We didn’t have dinner until 8:15 though so when we got on the ship CSP & I went to the hot tub again.  That CSP loves a hot tub!  Eventually it was time to get dressed for our last dinner of the cruise.
DSC_0218 Tonight we dined in Animator’s Palate. DSC_0219 DSC_0200 DSC_0207 The menu was more limited tonight I suppose because it’s the last night and because of the animation show.  DSC_0206 When we sat down at our seats were 2 big place matt looking things with green markers.DSC_0202 We followed the instructions on the paper which said to draw a character in the spaces provided.DSC_0204  Then our server took our papers away.
We both had the appetizer sampler (duck confit, mozzarella, and shrimp). DSC_0208 CSP had my duck. DSC_0205 There was just one soup- a macaroni and cheese soup, so we both had that.  It was surprisingly good!  For our entrees CSP chose the seafood pasta DSC_0209 and I went with the Beef Wellington. DSC_0210 I’d always seen it on Hell’s Kitchen so I thought I’d try it.  Really tasty!  Dessert was a trio of celebration cake, chocolate decadence & cappuccino mousse tartlet for me DSC_0211 and one last Mickey Bar for CSP.   He also took my mousse tartlet.
During dinner they took our drawings and animated them on the screens by the table and set them to music. DSC_0216 It was too cute!  DSC_0217 Our little guys were dancing across the screen!  DSC_0214 After dinner we hugged our servers (mad I didn’t get a picture of them) and went back to our room.  We packed up all our stuff and got ready for bed. DSC_0222 Debarkation comes early so we needed to get some sleep!

Disney Magic Western Caribbean Day 6- At Sea

Posted on

We woke up early today (at 7) because on sea days it’s much harder to snag a good chair by the pool.  I’m super fair so I need one in the shade.   We went up to breakfast at Cabana’s then scored 2 good chairs at Quiet Cove.  We read and I may have dozed off for a little while.  It was really cool and windy.  The ship was rocking and so was the pool!  It was cool enough out that they passed out blankets again to those of us silly enough to be up on deck.

At lunch time we dressed for lunch and went to Lumiere’s.  Appetizers:  I got the Tangerine Soup (like a smoothie) and shrimp cocktail.  IMG_6403 CSP got the salmon and a mixed green salad.

IMG_6402.  For our entrees I ordered the Cobb Salad and CSP got the burger.

IMG_6407  The server gave CSP a ketchup Mickey. IMG_6408 For dessert CSP had the apple strudel IMG_6410 and I had an almond tartlet. IMG_6409 After lunch it was nap time back in our room!

We woke up and got back into swim suits and went back to Quiet Cove.  We read some more, did the hot tub, and we were going to swim but the wind was really kicking so I backed out.  CSP was up for it though! IMG_6411  Poor guy was out there all alone!  But it was freezing!  I was fine in the hot tub but as soon as my dripping wet self hit that cold wind I was done with the water sports for the day! 

 But CSP was loving it!  So I wrapped up in towels and blankets and read while he went back and forth from the pool to the hot tub.  We stayed out there until almost 7pm!  Then it was time for showers and getting dressed for dinner.

Dinner tonight was at Lumiere’s. DSC_0177 DSC_0176 For his appetizer CSP chose the oysters Rockefeller DSC_0179 and I chose the shrimp.DSC_0180  We both had the Wild Mushroom Soup.  Tonight was Lobster night so CSP was all kinds of excited to get his lobster tail. DSC_0181 I ordered the pork tenderloin with polenta and mushrooms. DSC_0182 CSP got another Mickey bar for dessert DSC_0184and I went with the Trio of creme brulee, apple pie, and cheesecake.DSC_0183

Back to our room and we were locked out again! This time we were let in to our room within 10 minutes and by the time we woke up the next day our lock was fixed again.  We got to bed early tonight because tomorrow is Castaway Cay!  There’s lots to do so we have to be up early!  But before we go…a tour of our room: Stateroom 7556. DSC_0186 Note we have a red Cruising with Mickey bag as our temporary Fish Extender.  That’s all thanks to the McC’s!  DSC_0185  We started with zero door magnets and ended up with a TON because of our fabulous FE friends!  DSC_0188  DSC_0192 DSC_0193  There’s tons of storage!  We didn’t even use all the drawers and shelves! DSC_0191 DSC_0190 Pay no attention to all of our bags and CSP’s stuff.  I told you he didn’t unpack!  Drove me crazy!  But note the full size sofa (which converts to a bed) and above it is a bunk bed. DSC_0194  Across from the sofa and coffee table is the fabulous vanity and stool.  DSC_0189  The TV is on a swivel so you can view it from anywhere in the room.  There’s a safe in every room.  It’s big enough to hold my big camera and our wallets and CSP’s headphones.  The bathroom is split.  This one has a sink, a bunch of shelves, and the toilet. DSC_0196 This one has a sink and the tub/shower.  DSC_0195 We had a stateroom with verandah. DSC_0197DSC_0198 DSC_0175 I love all the hidden Mickeys!

Ok, Good night!  Castaway Cay awaits!  DSC_0187

Disney Magic- Western Caribbean. Day 5 Cozumel

Posted on

We woke up and went to Cabanas buffet to have breakfast. After breakfast we delivered our Fish Extender gifts.  What is a Fish Extender??  Outside of every cabin is a fish that holds mail from the ship for your stateroom.  cruise A Fish Extender (FE) is a hanging that has pockets (usually a pocket per family member) that hangs from the fish.  Here’s an example: FE14 *Note the door decorations- all magnets.  The doors are metal and Disney allows decorations as long as you don’t use tape.  Back to the FE.  I’d show you our FE but we couldn’t find it when we were packing for the cruise!  Boo!!!  To participate you sign up for a FE exchange in your Facebook cruise group.  Just search Facebook for your ship and sail date and you’ll find your group. Each group is different so I’ll tell you how ours worked on this cruise.  We had 15 cabins per group. Each stateroom created or bought little gifts for all the people in the other staterooms in their FE group.  Some people (like us) gave a room gift.  Some people gave individual gifts – something for each person in the cabin.  It all depends on you what you do.  There are no rules.  Some people give regional items, some give Disney themed. Our cruise group (Holla Group A!!!) was AMAZING!  Our peeps are nothing short of creative geniuses!  We got the CUTEST stuff.  I can’t even begin to tell you everything we got, but it was fabulous.  We gave barbecue sauce from Shealy’s (the best in the world), a Thirty One Hang It Up Key Fob, and a Thirty One Manicure Nail File (gotta represent!).   Anyway, we delivered all our gifts (great way to see the ship!).

There were 4 ships in port today.  We were docked next to the MSC Divina. IMG_6399 It was funny, when the MSC ship pulled up next to our Disney ship, all the people came out onto their balconies to take pictures of our ship.  The MSC ship was massive!  We were on the 7th deck of our ship and their ship went up at least another 7 decks!  We were in our room to change into swimsuits.  I might add that each time we put on our swimsuits we lathered up in sunscreen and to our delight did NOT get sunburned in the least this trip!  SPF 110 for the win!!!

So we went to Quiet Cove, the adult pool area.  We hung out in the pool, read, pooled some more, read some more.  Had lunch at Cabanas.  Pool, read, pool.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  It was an awesome, relaxing day!  Our view: IMG_6401 If you look closely, you can see there is a Starbucks logo on that big white building.  CSP is a Starbucks junkie so he was tempted to go check it out, but the lure of the adult pool and his book kept him on the ship.  IMG_6400

Around 5:45 we went back to our room and dressed and showered for our dinner tonight at Palo.  DSC_0139Tonight I only took pictures of the dishes you haven’t seen yet. For his appetizer CSP chose Cippino again.  I got the Portobello Mushroom with Polenta Cake. DSC_0134  For our entrees CSP got the Osso Buco.  It’s his favorite dish ever and he looks forward to it all year waiting on this cruise! DSC_0135  I chose the Saffron Risotto di Mare, but just with shrimp.  I’m not into shells on my plate. It was amazing.DSC_0136

For dessert we both ordered the chocolate souffle. It comes with ice cream and 2 little pots of sauce, one vanilla and one chocolate.  CSP and I always trade.  I take both vanillas and he takes both chocolates.  This souffle is incredible.  Makes your eyes roll back in your head. DSC_0137

After our fantastic dinner we went back to our room to change clothes and get ready for the fireworks. We went to deck 10.  No chairs.  Deck 9- no chairs with a view.  Then I thought of something.   I remembered there are deck chairs and benches on deck 4!  So we went down and there were only 2 other people there.  Boom- no crowd and an incredible view of the fireworks! DSC_0147 CSP was tired and had wanted to go to bed then bang! DSC_0174 they started and he was so excited to be so close to them!  DSC_0151 We couldn’t hear the music but you couldn’t beat the view! DSC_0173DSC_0155DSC_0143

When the fireworks were over we went back to our room and turned in for the night! DSC_0140 I always love the monkey!

Up next:  Day at Sea!

Disney Magic Western Caribbean Day 3- Day at Sea!

Posted on

We slept in a little after our big day yesterday in Key West so we didn’t get up until about 9:15am.  Slapped some clothes on really quickly and ran down to the Future Cruise Desk.  We were first in line.  Yay! We had already booked our 2016 cruise but we wanted to see if we could get a better deal including the on board credit.  We did!  So we saved a bit of $$ AND got $200 on board credit for Jan 2016.  Yay!

We went back to our room and dressed for brunch at Palo! DSC_0082There’s a debate on every cruise which is better?  Palo Brunch or Palo dinner?  I’ll take em both!  They are both amazing!  But let’s talk about brunch first. DSC_0095 Palo is the adult’s only restaurant on all the Disney ships.  It’s Italian and incredible.  You’re required to dress up, which I love.  We don’t get out to fine dining establishments that often so I like putting on the ritz a bit!  Although brunch is more casual than dinner, men are still required to wear nice pants (no shorts) and no flip flops.DSC_0083

Brunch is a buffet and then you can order things like pizza and chicken parmesan (the best chicken parm you’ll ever have) or eggs benedict from the kitchen.  Here’s CSP’s plate from the cold buffet.  DSC_0085 It truly is a seafood lover’s dream!  Mariana from Mexico was our server and we enjoyed her so much I went to the manager and asked to be seated with her at our dinner reservation later in the week.  Then I asked if there happened to be any openings for any of the other nights.  We lucked out and they had an opening for tonight!  But back to brunch.  You get a cocktail with your brunch.  CSP chose prosecco and I chose Kir Royale. DSC_0086 Mainly because I have a Buxom lipgloss with that name and I’ve always wondered about it.  It was pretty good, but I’m not a huge champagne fan.  Oh!  and the sticky buns!  You must try a sticky bun!  So good.



One thing that impresses me with Palo is their attention to detail.  It can get warm with the sun coming through those big windows in Palo so look how they ice the tea!  With frozen tea!  No watered down tea!  Genius! DSC_0089

Now after brunch is the best part.  The sweet wee little desserts!

DSC_0092 This one is fruit and CHAMPAGNE JELLO BITS.  Again- genius!!!DSC_0094 DSC_0091 DSC_0090 DSC_0093They are all bite sized desserts so try them all!  Brunch lasts a good two hours!  When we were finished we headed back to the room.  I ran into a member of our cruise group delivering Fish Extender goodies.  It was fun meeting her and bonding over our Fish Extender experience.

CSP and I changed out of our nice clothes and went up on deck.  We found some chairs in the adult section called Quiet Cove and read/napped the afternoon away!

DSC_0096 I could see the AquaDunk tube sticking out over the ocean from my deck chair. DSC_0098

DSC_0097My view- not too shabby!  Next thing we knew it was time to shower and dress for dinner!

Back at Palo!

DSC_0099DSC_0102DSC_0100DSC_0107 Dinner service is very different from brunch.  Much more formal.  They wait on you hand and foot and treat you like royalty!  Dinner starts with anti-pasta.   DSC_0106 Artichokes, roasted peppers, olives, parmesan cheese, proscuitto, and cured beef.  Topped with flavored olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  The artichokes are just fantastic.  They also bring you a fancy bread basket with warm garlic pizza bread and bread sticks. DSC_0105

For my appetizer I chose pesto grilled shrimp. DSC_0109 CSP chose his favorite soup- cippino.  It is chock full of seafood.  Mussels, shrimp, scallops, the works! DSC_0108

Between appetizers and entrees they bring you an intermezzo- lemon sorbet to cleanse your palate.  DSC_0110

For our entrees we both chose risotto.  CSP got the Risotto di Mare (risotto of the sea) with all the same sea creatures as his cippino, just on creamy risotto instead of a broth. DSC_0111 Topped with zucchini strips.  I chose the Wild Mushroom risotto.

DSC_0112 CSP said his was incredible and I had a taste of his risotto- he was right!  Mine was super good too.  Very VERY mushroomy.  We split a half portion (3 pieces) of lobster & marscapone ravioli.  They make their own pasta in house!  SO creamy and tender.DSC_0113

Dessert time!  CSP chose the tiramisu.  How cute is his cookie spoon??DSC_0114 I chose the Panna Cotta with macerated berries. DSC_0115  The best custard I’ve ever had.  Unreal.

But wait….it’s not over!  They bring out sgopino.  It’s a digestive aid frosty shot.  Really good actually.


We walked (slowly) back to the room and changed into casual clothes. Then we went shopping!  It was Formal Night so everyone was busy with their dinners so the ship’s shops were empty.  Perfect timing!  We bought a t-shirt for CSP’s mom and one for his dad too to thank them for house and pug sitting.  We bought a 2015 magnet (we buy one on each cruise).  And then I spied a t-shirt with a sugar skull on it!  Just then CSP handed me a black Tervis tumbler.  I turned it around and it was perfect!!!

IMG_6444 HOW COOL IS THIS?!?!?  A Disney Cruise Line Tervis tumbler 24 oz with a SUGAR SKULL on it?!?!  It says “Cruisin’ It’s In My Bones”.  LOVE.   Once our purchases were made we high tailed it back to our room to go to sleep. When we got back to our room we had a new towel animal (a seal??) DSC_0117and some Fish Extender goodies. IMG_6385 Luckily our new friends the McC’s gave us a bag to use as our Fish Extender (more on this later I promise).

We have an early day tomorrow!

Up next….Grand Cayman!  Stingrays!  Mixology!
