Today was the day we were going to be docking in Key West. The Magic did not dock until 1pm so we had some time in the morning to sleep in a little before our character breakfast. We headed to Parrot Cay a few minutes early and were seated right away!
The characters started coming around pretty fast!
Alyssa and Austin loved them all….except Pluto. He scared Alyssa so much. Look at her little face!
Breakfast was really good.
Except….Mickey Waffles are NOT the same in the parks and on the Cruise ships. These were dense and not very tasty. I have just discovered the goodness of a Mickey Waffle at Walk Disney World a few days prior, so I was disappointed!
Alyssa would get so excited each time a new character would come by!
After some drama over Brandon’s breakfast the waiters made us all fun hats out of napkins. Look at Pete’s…
We still had a few hours before it was time to get off the ship. We walked around some.
Then it was time to learn to Do-Si-Do with Snow White. Alyssa was not registered in the kids club this cruise. She still visited the nursery. But we took her as often as possible to go play in the kids club. She isn’t fond of strangers so this was the best option. She could still visit the nursery when she needed one on one babysitting, but we could take her to play with the bigger kids.
Notice her fingers again!
Alyssa got picked to go into the back for a special meet and greet with Snow White after the party. She couldn’t stop talking about it.
We headed up to the Deck and got a littl ebite to eat before we got off the ship.
Once we got off the ship we stopped and talked to the Trolly Tour lady that was set up right at the pier. Pete and I knew we wanted to do the tour, but we talked Laura and Brandon into joining us too. It was a great deal, much cheaper then Disney charges and when you book the Trolly through Disney excursions you do not get the hop on and off option.
We waited for the next tour to start.
We got our seats and the tour started pretty soon.
Austin and I enjoyed it. LOL It was a really good tour. We saw some interesting sights.
By the time we got to the southern most point Alyssa was out like a light!
Austin had taken a little nap too so he was in a good mood once he woke up.
Chickens were everywhere!
We waited our turn for a picture and when we got there Alyssa didn’t want to get up. She ended up in her family’s picture and ours. Love her! She was not happy about her parents trying to make her get up. Look at that face!
We walked back to the bus stop and Alyssa found something she liked!
We got back on the Trolly and started towards one of the places I was most excited for….the Key West Winery!
We got off and walked a few blocks to the winery.
We bought some of the best wine ever! Key Limon. I LOVE it and can not wait to get more. I am hoarding one lone bottle, but I want alot more. LOL
We walked back to the ship after we were done at the winery. We wanted watch the sun set onboard.
I think we all liked Key West alot!
It had gotten hazy and the sunset was not as clear as it could have been.
We had to go get showered for dinner. One of the reason’s I like the late dining is because you don’t have to rush as much. You have more time before dinner.
The beauty of the Disney ships still amaze me.
Dinner was in Parrot Cay tonight. These chicken fingers were my favorite part of dinner tonight.
Alyssa was drawing some pictures to help pass the time. The dry erase board was nice to have at dinner.
We celebrated Alyssa’s birthday tonight! The was her 3rd Birthday cruise!
Even with cake she needed a Mickey Bar.
After dinner Pete and I went to the club and it was 70’s night. We enjoyed a good show before we headed up for bed!!!
