We were laying by the pool and on the Aqua Duck before lunch of the first day! We traveled with bestie S and her family and met up with them in no time.
When the rooms were ready around 1:30, we jetted down to six to see what our first stay in an oceanview verandah would be like. And it was grand!!! At first the littles were sad about not having a magic porthole, but Honey and I LOVED the extra space and being able to sit out in the sun and soak it all in.
We popped in for some fun trivia, cocktails and smoothies at the DVC welcome reception…
And then the littles were dying to go preview the Oceaneers Club… even though they know the place like the back of their hands.
Also at the top of their list was room service! We did the late dinner rotation this time and BLTs and cheese plates were just the refresher we needed.
Even though we’ve seen the shows a few times, they were still fantastic!
We squeezed in a little Minnie and some shuffleboard before dinner at Royal Palace.
The littles were beside themselves to get to kids club, so we headed with the men to the sports bar to catch up on the Masters.
Our family loves breakfast in the Enchanted Garden. They talk about this on a weekly basis. So, the next morning we enjoyed our feast looking out at Nassau!
Honey slept in a little so I entertained the littles with mini golf before we met up with some very special ladies…
… Anna and Elsa!!!!!!!! Yes, they have made it to the Disney Dream!!!
With the littles happily off at kids club, we spent an amazing few hours at the adult pool. We were giddy… plush cushioned chairs, cast members walking around with plates of cool towels, a swim up bar. It was divine!
Before getting ready for dinner, we did the rounds with the fab five in pirate garb. They were SO cute! We’ve never seen some of these get-ups before.
John adores the #1 duck…
And Whit, rather appropriately, loves him some Goofy.
Since it was Pirate Night, Peter Pan and Hook were out as well! When John told Pan he heard Hook was on board, Pan charged him with being a pirate sympathizer. It was hysterical.
We made our ten thousandth trip for ice cream and hit up the aqua duck a few more times before getting ready for the show and pirate dinner.
We brought our costumes from the Pirates League and sought out Captain Jack Sparrow. The littles were especially keen on this since we had just watched his first two movies at Vero Beach. Whit said “Hey, I’m Captain Jack Sparrow.” Well, a hysterical interaction ensued and had us all belly laughing.
We went up with the masses for the deck party before a wonderful dinner at Animators Palate.
We lucked out with a table right in front of a screen and Crush came to chat with us MULTIPLE times throughout our dinner. This is by far my favorite night on the Dream!
With the littles back at kids club, the adults secured a wonderful seating area at the top of the adult area for the fireworks show. This is the way to do it!
We woke up the third day in Disney’s Castaway Cay!
Honey and I checked the littles into Scuttles Cove and headed for our second Castaway 5K. It was much hotter than November, but my ankle is totally healed and the brand new RunDisney medals were worth it all! (We wore our Tink and Hook tees from Raw Threads.)
Bestie S scored front row lounge chairs while we were gone, and when we got the littles we lucked out with Minnie, Pluto and Mickey looking precious in their beach gear.
I was SO hot and sweaty that it only took the mention of Pelican Plunge to have me headed that way!
And we spent the better part of our day in that way… lounging, swimming, eating and downing frozen treats (the adult kind too!).
Back on the boat, we decided to do the early See Ya Real Soon party … after ANOTHER ice cream cone and playing a few card games down in the atrium.
After the show we joined the officers for pin trading and headed off to dinner at Enchanted Garden.
The littles, of course, spent their last night in kids club so we went down to Skyline in the District. It was really neat and someplace Honey and I hadn’t been before.
And on the fourth morning we gobbled up our last breakfast at Enchanted Garden and were on our way back to Atlanta.
It as a wonderful and memorable and totally Disney week together!!!! These are the days…
