Disney Cruise 2009

WOW! Just can't believe it is over. Why does time fly when you are having fun? We really enjoyed our trip, and we hope to get to do it again. Until now, Neil and I had not found a summer place we would love to visit again. (besides St. John) Everyone told us it was the best, and it truly was just that. These are just a few pictures. Honestly, I wasn't thrilled with my photography this trip. GO FIGURE! Even though we are sad our trip is over, we are looking forward to our Disney World trip in January.

I have posted the rest of my pictures at www.thedeals4.shutterfly.com. The password is deal.

Anxiously awaiting getting on the Wonder!

After our safety drill, we went on top to join in a celebration!

Just having fun~

The shows were out of this world. There was a show each night at 8:30. The first show was The Golden Mickeys. Before the show, they had the red carpet preshow. For some reason, Parker was picked to answer some questions. I didn't really know what was going on, but come to find out it was a live feed going on in the theater. Cooper got in on it too. The only thing he did was say, "One, Three, go" and threw his mickey! Everywhere we went people were saying, "There is Parker and Cooper". That was pretty cool. My favorite of the 3 shows was Toy Story the Musical. The boys stayed glued to the shows every night.

When we got back to our room the first night, I wish I would have had a video camera. Parker's eyes were as big as saucers when he saw the bunk bed. He just ran over and screamed, "an up bed".

Every night when we came back to our room, our towels were shaped like animals. That was a treat.

Besides St. John, (that is where we honeymooned and would love to go back one day) Castaway Cay is the nicest beach I have ever been to. We had to walk a bit to actually get to the beach, but the walk was beautiful. It reminded me a lot of the parks at Disney World. We stayed most of the day. There was so much to do there.

While we were waiting to see Pirate Mickey, Neil took the boys over and bought them a hat, patch and sword. They had plenty of sword fights at night.

Corbin Bleu was on the boat with us. That was pretty cool. There were other Disney Stars on there, but we didn't see them. I want to watch HSM now. We were asked to respect their privacy, so I just got some shots of him.

Getting to meet the characters was one of Parker's favorite things. He LOVED getting them to sign his book. Cooper was not quite as thrilled. He was scared of them. We met Mickey, Lilo and Stitch, Jack Sparrow, Goofy and Chip and Dale. We never met up with Minnie. Don't know how we missed her.

Now, I can't wait to fill this up!
