We’re back! Home that is, after a wonderful holiday trip that included 5 nights on board the beautiful Disney Dream and 3 nights at the Walt Disney World Resort. And, oh, do we have stories to tell! But first, let me wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Now, let’s recap our trip in numbers. . .
4 Number of planes it took for us to fly to and from Orlando (no direct flight this trip!)
1,343 Number of photos taken by both cameras that we took with us (that’s a lot)
225 Number of photos on the Photo CD purchased at Shutters on the Disney Dream
132 Number of photos on our Disney Photopass CD that we pre-purchased at a discount price (includes photos from Downtown Disney and ONE day at the parks!)
3 Number of times the boy was chosen for magical experiences on the Dream
4 Number of trivia contests we entered (we won one!)
20 Number of single word movie/cartoon titles of Disney/Pixar movies we could come up with for our “homework” at 50’s Prime Time Café. Can you do that?
2 Number of days we spent at Castaway Cay!
5 Number of times the boy rode the AquaDuck
2 & 6 Number of adult beverages the husband and I enjoyed on Castaway Cay
5 Number of nights the boy stayed up way past his bedtime!
564 Number of days until our next Disney Cruise!
4 Number of thank you cards written to DCL Cast Members—we were so grateful for all of our experiences
48 Number of pounds our heaviest suitcase weighed—under the limit by 2 pounds!
3 Number of “purchase with purchase” deals I took advantage of while shopping
16 Number of letters we mailed at the Post Office on Castway Cay
We met numerous friendly folks who also enjoy the amenities and ease of cruising with Disney—it is the easiest vacation ever!
The boy sampled duck, escargot, caviar, and various seafood delights including bass, mahi mahi, lobster, swordfish, and shrimp. He learned he liked couscous. I learned that the ribs at Cookies on Castaway Cay are better than the ribs at Whispering Canyon. The husband learned about whiskey at a whiskey tasting event.
While we are grateful to make it safely home we are missing our little bit of paradise and “our” Disney ship. We’ll be back before we know it!
