Bye for now!
Hi all and we could not agree more! I am sitting in Old Key West with 2 sleeping boys - lesson learned..go to Disney before the cruise... although they enjoyed MVMC they are just worn out! We were back in the room by 9:30! We also booked our next cruise, we will be bringing the 2012 New Year in on the Disney Dream! The kids are dying to see the ship, so even though the itinerary is not great, we will enjoy exploring the new ship! We enjoyed meeting you all and like Tower and Amy, we did not get to meet everyone but truly enjoyed meeting those we did! Hope everyone has a very Happy Holiday!!!

When I checked out of Bay Lake Tower yesterday, there was a coupon for 35% off attached to our room receipt. I went to TrenD and bought the new black purse with the multicolor mickey pattern instead of the original lighter version. I got the 35% off (but the new version of the purse is also more expensive to start with.)

It WAS a great cruise, wasn't it? We really enjoyed sitting with your family at dinner each night. Your family is great!

We booked 3 more cruises while onboard. One we had already booked for Alaska in 2011, but we rebooked to get the 10% discount and the OBC. Then we added another 4 day on the Wonder at the end of April as well as a 7 day Western on the Magic for this coming December, 2010. Not sure which we will keep and which will become placeholders for future cruises. I just wanted to make sure we HAD options because when I booked Alaska originally back in Sept, I had to book at full price.

I hope to meet you on future trips!

For those who are still traveling, I hope your travels home are safe and quick.

We too had a great time and alot of that was due to our great tablemates. We got back Saturday night after a not great day of driving (2 accidents, rain Florida-SC, and the bridge at Santee down to one lane for repairs). All the buildings I am in have stopped rocking so I guess I have my "land legs" back. It was funny to be in church yesterday and feel it swaying like the Walt Disney Theater.

I'll be posting some pictures, soon as I get around to downloading pictures.

We got back at about midnight last night. Our flight had been delayed coming home to Baltimore. We left sunny 84 F weather to come home to freezing rain. The worst was that our side/side fridge that was 7 years old had broken while we were gone. Luckily my parents stopped to check on the house 3 days after we left and discovered empty ice cream containers floating at the door along with about $500 worth of meat, etc. that had thawed. They cleaned it up for us and even had a repair guy come out and order the part we needed. It was fixed today but it's completely empty now and I need to do some serious food shopping! As I told Derek---it could have been worse so we need to look on the bright side!

We had a fabulous cruise and rebooked for July 24, 2011 5 day Dream and the November 26, 2011 7 day Western. It was great meeting everyone we got to meet from our Dis group. Thank you again for all the great FE gifts!!!!

Amy--does your organizer friend travel? I can use a basement organizer myself!! I clean the top 2 floors meticulously but the basement has become or storage/junk pit!

Sorry I couldn't make it to any of the meets, but it was nice to meet those of you that I caught with the Dis Lanyard on.
We finally arrived home a little after 2 this morning.
We went to MK saturday because the boys wanted to ride buzz, so we had a 40 min wait but it took us over an hour to exit the park, it was a mad house, boy ohh boy I have completely erased the thought of how nice it would be to visit for the holidays.
We will be heading back but on the Dream this time in Oct of 2011

We went to the MK, too, on Saturday but only stayed from 10 am to 3:15 pm. It was WAY too crowded for my taste. Paying to go to MVMCP is worth it just to avoid all the crowds.

We got back this morning around 11. We didn't book onboard this trip but we did purchase more DVC points. I guess it helped to win the $300 onboard credit from DVC to put us in the mood to finalize it (and also the great incentive - purchased points for cheaper than we did 2 years ago at AKLV!). We are planning on an Alaska cruise in 2011 - but we needed to figure out vacation schedules and stuff and just didn't get our act together to book.

The D23 Magic and Merriment event was AWESOME! I hate to say, I think it beat the cruise and our cruise was WONDERFUL too!! The D23 team did a fantastic job with all the details and we were spoiled over the weekend. The food was incredible, the surprises were awesome and this mom shed quite a few tears as her son got to make it snow and turn on the lights at the Osborne Lights on Saturday night for our special viewing along with the manager that brought the lights to Disney Studios (he was hand picked by the WDW Special Events Manager who had been "watching" him all day and thought he was so cute and well behaved). It truly made his trip and he can't stop talking about it. I've cried several times today while telling family members what happened this weekend. Tried "Walt's Very Own Chili" recipe yesterday for lunch along with his favorite Monte Cristo Sandwiches and a bunch of other "favorites". We will definately try to get tickets for the next East Coast event!

Cinderella's Suite in the castle is to die for! I would love one night in that place! Pics will be coming as soon as I have a chance to download/upload them! We were definately glad for the fast passes that were included in the event as the parks were packed this weekend. The MVMCP was PACKED last night! We saw lots of people without wristbands that were still in the park and nothing was being done about it except on the bridge from Main Street to Liberty Square. Hopefully, they kicked a bunch out after the parade.

Need to go pull out another Gingerbread Cookie - I made a haul at the Grand Floridian yesterday and haven't gotten my fill yet!

To those that participated in the FEs - Thanks for all of the wonderful FE gifts - it made my son's trip!

Sorry we didn't get to the meets. The waves threw me for a loop the first few days (along with something that I ate Saturday that didn't agree with me). We also had our Character Breakfast Sunday Morning!

Oh - I have a princess whiteboard from my door. If it belongs to you, PM me your address and I will send it out!

We just got back last night. Can't believe we left 84 for a cold 37!!! What were we thinking??
Sorry we didn't meet up with anyone. I didn't pay attention that there was a meet at
port and 9am was too early for us the next day. Our girls were one of the few crazy
kids in the Mickey pool that day! With the exception of the weather at port, Castaway Cay and the Pirate's In the Caribbean party..we had a great cruise!!! Tortola was our favorite port.
One of the consoler's in the lab said early next year they will be testing with getting rid of the age groups for kids, except Flouder's Reef, and will make age recommendations for activities. My girls didn't go in the Lab much. My 9 year old would rather of chilled and not have a schedule of when to do things. Group activities, some of the kids were not really good about taking turns. Pirate's In the Caribbean party was kind of boring...over all we loved the cruise! We surprised the girls with 2 nights at Caribbean Beach Resort. They were too tired to be really surprised. MK was INSANE!!!! A cast member I spoke to said they were not expecting that kind of crowd...we didn't enjoy ourselves. Went to EPCOT and DHS the next day..that was enjoyable! Have to go..will write a trip report after this weekend.

We were at CBR as well, but for 2 nights prior to the cruise. It does not surprise me that it was so busy, with the rain on the past 2 Fridays, the weekend crowd I'm sure only grew. Since we'll be back within 2 years, we're not too concerned about missing anything.
Back to the routine now with meetings, and I wear the red suit at the school today, Thursday and Sunday.
It was a truly relaxing vacation, one I needed after a lot of pressure over the year. Glad we did the 1-week cruise and not a 3/4 day deal. Would have just begun to settle down and we'd have to pack up to leave again.

That was the best cruise I've been on! The food was great (plenty of lamb, I like!) and the service was excellent. Thanks Womack and Alex, you're great!

Lots of fun!

We had so much fun! Thank you for all the fun FE gifts. We had such a great time finding all the goodies in our extender. We apologize if any of you received the wrong magnets. I know there was a bit of confusion with some room changes.
